* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: Parodied with Manly Dan's crowd of lumberjacks, who as Chapter 6 reveals are basically your stereotypical keyboard "SJW." The fic also makes fun of the opposite extreme at the same time with Tambry's crowd of "online friends" (distinct from the other teenagers she's seen hanging out with in canon), who are over-the-top trolls against any sort of political correctness and with a ''heavily'' implied {{lolicon}} fetish.

* AnArmAndALeg: Dipper lost an arm in an unexplored incident. Mabel and Nzyvo [[spoiler:each lose a different leg towards the end of their battle. This leaves Pacifica as the only Pines quadruplet who has yet to lose a limb.]]

* AnArmAndALeg: Dipper lost an arm in an unexplored incident.incident that took place before the story began. Mabel and Nzyvo [[spoiler:each lose a different leg towards the end of their battle. This leaves Pacifica as loses an arm over the only Pines quadruplet who has yet timeskip, and ''Spooky's'' -- actually a ''prequel'' to lose a limb.this -- explains Dipper's missing arm.]]



* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: The Love God revealing his "true form" in Chapter 6. [[spoiler:He undergoes a number of grotesque, Body Horror transformations. Then in the end... it's just his original appearance, but with red skin and a lot of tattos reading "666."]]



* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted. [[spoiler:[=.GIFfany=] gets the utter shit kicked out of her from the Lust Devil, and ends up with a giant hole through her and covered in blood. She makes a full recovery from both.]]
* BerserkButton:
** Love potions are still one of Professor Dove's.
** Great Pikmin Fan's AuthorAvatar seems a bit hot-tempered in general, but do ''not'' say anything along the lines of calling ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' a clone of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. His conversation with Burnda got really heated (with her fire powers nor the setting being a hot spring having anything to do with it), but he outright tried to attack her when she trollishly asked what the difference between Homer and Hank was.
* BigRedDevil: [[spoiler:The true appearance of the Love God/Lust Devil. It looks exactly like his "disguise" (read: his canonical appearance), but red, covered in "666" tattoos, with a pitchfork, and only wearing a large loincloth.]]
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: When giving his first speech running for president, Stan promises more freedom, more jobs, ''legalizing public urination'' (specifically, for drunk people), and the relatively tame banning porn. The third one gets a bunch of cheers as do the first two. The last one, though, is what causes his popularity to plummet.
* BrickJoke: In the beginning of Chapter 6, [=.GIFfany=] is showing off the new thongs she bought to Soos. They supposedly get progressively skimpier; she manages to show two and implies that the last one is especially kinky, but a naked Stan interrupts her before she could take it out. By the end of the chapter, we find out what it is. The chapter is ''extremely long'', so it definitely counts as a lengthy Brick Joke.
* BringMeMyBrownPants: Dipper pisses himself in Chapter 5 when he sees Nzyvo coming after him, with no mecha or no real protection.
* TheBusCameBack: Chapter 6 sees the return of GPF's AuthorAvatar from ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'', his last appearance being back in ''Gumball Vs Satan'' (which was, in a way, tied to his appearance in SJAHJ).



** Great Pikmin Fan's self-insert. It's implied that nobody really likes him, and both [[{{Troll}} Bubbles]] and [[TheGadfly Burnda]] enjoy messing with him. The former just pokes him to annoyance, the latter insults one of his favorite shows... which happens to be ''[[NoFourthWall Gravity Falls itself]]''.
* CallBack: In canon, Ford describes an over-clingy relationship with a sibling as "suffocating." In the game, we find out Dipper was nearly suffocated by Mabel before birth. In ''Journals'', Chapter 6 opens with Mabel having a vision/"Inward Journey" which ends with a shadowy, Mabel-looking thing appearing behind Dream Dipper and him suffocating shortly after. It also references Hush from ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac''.



** Continuing with ''Gurren Lagann'': [[spoiler:Mable the Typomonster, the fic's true Big Bad, is an expy of the Anti-Spiral.]]
** The Love God's appearance here shares many things in common with [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Zorin Blitz]] (the fic itself explicitely points out one of these things in common). Her canon self, not her self in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals''. Both of them [[spoiler:are brutal sadists, both cast illusions that are broken by characters in a relationship combining memories, both ride in on zeppilens, and both are "crushed like bugs." Also, there is a refusal to blow them up under the belief that they don't really deserve it -- Zorin goes down for underestimating Seras and just wasn't detonated; Lust Devil avoids a Giga Drill break, because as the narrative explains, that method of killing him off would have been "too cool" for a guy like that.]]



* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** Near the end of Chapter 5, Melody and Stan decide to run for presidency. This turns out to be a bit more important to the plot than it seems -- Fan says that it will span to at least Chapter 8, so it did not end up being a plotline for one chapter like "The Stanchurian Candidate."
** Near the beginning of Chapter 6, Mabel and [=.GIFfany=] go in to a sensory depravation tank and experience an "Inward Journey" caused by inhaling Sandy's drugs second-hand. [=.GIFfany=] just saw Spiderman hitting her in the groin with a sledgehammer and suddenly came to a HeelRealization. Mabel, on the other hand, is directly told by a "Dream Dipper" that her personality as it stands is heading on a dark path and she could get others killed with her selfishness. It ends with a shadowy, Mabel-shaped figure appearing behind him and him suffocating to death. [[spoiler:The shadowy figure based on Mabel's flaws fits Mable the Typomonster, the story's true Big Bad.]]
* GagPenis: The Love God/[[spoiler:Lust Devil]], who is stated to be wearing a ''huge'' loincloth in his true form. When the [=.GIFfany=] Army burns it off, he has a large censor bar underneath.



* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Exaggerated. [[spoiler:Soos is highly implied to have enough stamina to leave over 4.4 '''million''' superpowered women (and one superpowered man, and on unsuperpowered woman) completely breathless and exhausted. It's also apparently a sign of them getting together as friends and being in a comitted relationship.]]

It's also apparently a sign of them getting together as friends and being in a comitted relationship. Later, it's suggested that he's pretty good at sex in general -- Dove is left utterly breathless after a one-on-one while he's barely phased.]]



* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler:Mable the Typomonster. She's an expy of the Anti-Spiral and follows after his design of being a living... shadow thing.]]
* TheImmodestOrgasm: Soos. The end of Chapter 6 reveals that his screams are like those of the "Loud Ni(a)g(a)ra" meme. He's in a mecha the size of a city, and [[spoiler:Bill Cipher]] is able to hear him a good distance away. (Possibly the other people around.)



* IgnoreTheFanservice: In chapter 4, [=.GIFfany=] tries to seduce Soos by undressing herself and revealing... that she has [=DVDs=] of various science fiction series in the inside of her clothes. Soos cares about the [=DVDs=] and barely even notices that she's naked. Meanwhile, Rumble is clearly interested in the show, and Melody is downright flustered by her. [[spoiler:Subverted when she turns around and he ''is'' interested in her butt. In this verse, Soos is definitely an ass-man.]]

** Great Pikmin Fan's AuthorAvatar refuses to oggle someone who doesn't want to be seen naked. When Melody accidentally gets in to a position where she exposes herself to him in the hot springs, he averts his eyes and tells her to put her leg down.
* {{Irony}}:
** Manly Dan is made to a proud, stereotypical internet StrawFeminist who ''really'' hates white men. He's a buff, masculine white man and pretty much the opposite of a negative feminist stereotype. Meanwhile, Tambry does not believe in political correctness or diversity at all, yet it's heavily implied that her group of online friends are diverse and she herself follows the "dyed hair teen-ish girl" image that is associated with the type of people ''she'' hates. As of Chapter 6, nobody has bothered to point out the hypocracy on either side.
** [=.GIFfany=] -- A domestically abusive, psychopathic, murderous {{yandere}} -- is presented as someone who could potentially be worked with and recognize her own flaws. The Love God, who canonically was more of an AntiVillain? ''He's'' made in to an awful piece of shit inside and out. Hell, the former even calls out the latter on what true love really is. This would be something '''unthinkable''' in a number of other fan fiction, even ones that do try redeeming her.



* NakedApron: An outfit briefly described being worn by a group of [=.GIFfany=]s near the end of chapter 4.

* NakedApron: An outfit briefly described being worn by a group of [=.GIFfany=]s near the end of chapter 4.Chapter 4.
* NoodleIncident: Chapter 6 suggests that Soos tried to power up/"feed" [=.GIFfany=] by sticking an outlet up her ass. The details are never really elaborated on, including why he thought that would be a good idea.
* ObviouslyEvil:
** Professor Eve is, to sum it up, a color-inverted [=.GIFfany=] (but not ''literally''). Try doing that in MS Paint to get a very vague idea of [[BlackEyesOfCrazy what she looks like.]]
** The story does not try to sugarcoat the Love God at all, even before the reveal of his true form. His ''actual'' true form [[spoiler:is red-skinned and covered in 666 tattoos.]]

** [=.GIFfany=] undergoes a throwback to [[spoiler:Kamina's death]] from ''Gurren Lagann'' -- she's [[spoiler:impaled through the back from a sneak-attack from below, her blood gets everywhere, yet she manages to stand up and combine with her friends to finish off the enemy, ending in a Giga Drill Break. She even gives a speech that amounts to telling Soos to believe in himself (and his own relationship), and finishes off by saying "Later, buddy..." she doesn't actually die, and makes a full recovery ''two seconds'' after Soos tells her she'll make a ful recovery.]]



* RonTheDeathEater: Invoked with the Love God. Great Pikmin Fan admitted in the closing notes to Chapter 6 that he wanted to see how far he could possibly demonize him.



* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: The [=.GIFfanys=], [[FanFic/RunGifocalypse again,]] along with all four of the gods revealed in chapter 5. None of these characters mind walking around naked.

** [[spoiler:As soon as Pacifica actually appears, the story reveals that she's biologically related to Dipper in this world. They're actually siblings, she was separated at birth and adopted by the Northwests. Fan's closing notes to the chapter imply that they are not just going to ignore this, the ship is already dead for good in the ''Journals'' verse, and they'll even try to see each-other as brother and sister now despite not even really knowing one-another until the same summer the story takes place in.]]

In Chapter 6, she's driven off of him ''even further'' because of the way he treated the reveal and him generally trying to get in to heroism -- when Pacifica thinks it would be safer for all parties involved if a group of 13 year-olds weren't trying to stop incomprehensible mega-evil.]]

** The story outright describes Dream Dipper's "suffocation" as him looking like [[VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac Hush.]] (Well, mispelled "Hash," but it still at least cites the game.)



* SurpriseIncest: [[spoiler:Dipper and Pacifica are blood-related. Thankfully, the events of "Northwest Mansion Mystery" did not happen here, although Dipper's fixation on that seems to imply that he still developed a crush on her, and this reveal absolutely shattered him. Word of God was that this was done to troll shippers and a minor dig at a similar development in Act 4 of ''Homestuck''.]]

Word of God was that this was done to troll shippers and a minor dig at a similar development in Act 4 of ''Homestuck''. This is later deconstructed in Chapter 6 where it's revealed that Dipper didn't immediately look to her as a ''sister'' sister and still had feelings for her to some degree, so when Mable ordered them to kiss by proxy, he wasn't that bothered. His lack of being disturbed is what completely turned Pacifica off of him.]]



** GPF loves the show, but the "main" plot in Chapter 6 (not counting the setup of a number of storylines that will be reoccuring through the story, like the election or the true BigBad) is one ''gigantic'' Take That! at the episode "The Love God." Its villain of the week is written with the intent of being as much of an assbag as possible, with him actually being [[spoiler:a Lust ''Devil'' who wants to place the entire world under a love potion as he has no faith that the Shackan Lagann team will defeat Mable the Typomonster.]]
** Chapter 6 also introduces Ryan Christian, a dig at ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' in general and the "preachy Brian"-era specifcially. It also gives a Take That! to millitant white/male/straight-hating "social justice warriors" ''and'' anti-diversity internet jackasses by giving those traits to Manly Dan and Tambry (respectively) and presenting them as both being in the wrong over the same issues.



* TokenEvilTeammate: Professor Eve of the post-reforming [=.GIFfany=] copies, who is blatantly built up as an "exception" that is a bit late to learning Soos's lessons on being friends. As of chapter 4, the worst she does could be considered a prank -- she just destroys Melody and Rumble's clothing so that they'll have to get home in the nude.

[[spoiler:Subverted as of Chapter 6, as Soos reforms her too.]]



** Nzyvo. [[spoiler:She's the apparent Big Bad, but the end of the first half reveals that she was apparently ''good'' and just trying to save her sister Pacifica. She's another military experiment adopted by another branch of the Northwests, and knows about a mysterious "Typomonster" that needs to have a certain set of rituals done in other to please her.]]

** Then there's Mable... [[spoiler:no, that is not a mispelling of Mabel -- Mab'''le''' the Typomonster is the story's true Big Bad, an extra-dimensional Anti-Spiral esque anomaly that has an army of mechanical counterparts to the "sixteen main characters." (Not counting Mabel herself, as Mable is her "counterpart.") She's some sort of manifestation of all of Mabel's flaws with an origin unknown as of Chapter 6, who was puppeting around Nzyvo and forcing her to fight the others. Her entire existence spoils that Nzyvo is not the final villain, and she doesn't even properly appear until after several major bombshells have been dropped. Like Pacifica being Dipper and Mabel's biological sister.
]]



** Chapter 6. [[spoiler:We're finally introduced to the Typomonster -- and she's effectively a living embodiment of all of Mabel's character flaws turned Up to a Billion, and even named Mab''le''. Mabel herself finally drops the Aesop Amnesia and works towards becomming a better person, while Dipper seems to be heaving the opposite route. Ford returned ''off screen'', and kicked Stan out of the Mystery Shack, as he's now living with Soos in [=.GIFfany=] Land. Mable also casts purple clouds over the entire planet and threatens to cause the apocalypse come Halloween, with '''septillions''' of robots. Just ''one'' of said robot managed to give Mabel trouble, and Mabel had previously effortlessly taken down several supernatural forces, many of which with their own mechs.]]



* WouldHitAGirl:
** Most of the Shackan Lagann team, but Soos in particular has been roped in to battles with women especially (the Love God is an exception, but he was fought as a team) -- mainly [=.GIFfany=] and Eve. He shoots a gun at the former, and he blasts the latter with missiles before punching her in the face. He ends up having sex with both of them. He puts it in a family-unfriendly way, which [=.GIFfany=] seemingly [[WhatTheHellHero tries to call him out on]] before [[spoiler:the Lust Devil impales her through the back]]:
--->'''Soos:''' The lesson is that if my penis doesn't work, use my fists instead!
** The Lust Devil is a villainous example, and he makes it clear that he likes hitting women ''specifically'', and he sends his skeleton women after the men he's fighting while refusing to attack them directly.



* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: [[spoiler:Thought the story would be over after the final battle with Nzyvo? Nope. Turns out there's a threatening "Typomonster" somewhere out there.]] To add insult to injury, chapter 3 is focused about getting closer to [[spoiler:Nzyvo]] and it is explicitely called "Onwards to the Journey to the '''Final''' Boss!"

* AffectionateParody: It's made pretty clear that GPF usually[[note]]''Homestuck'' became a bit of a mixed bag; he liked it at the time he started its early ''SBIG'' installments, but somewhere down the line his opinion on it soured. As this was before ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'' ended, [[CreatorBreakdown the latter chapters might come off as being a little more mean-spirited to canon]][[/note]] enjoys the stories he's writing intentionally poorly-written fan fiction of. Despite frequent TakeThat[=s=], the base canons are usually left off lightly. In fact, he toned down on featuring ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' because he ''didn't'' like the newer episodes and did not want to write entire stories based on it. The series also counts as one towards fan fiction in general, as it does not serve to shock readers like several TrollFic[=s=] do, but instead entertain them with legitimate stand-alone stories that happen to be really weird and backed on plot holes.



** Ever wanted to see a nude, buff man with the head of Journal 3 itself? Or Waddles in a more humanoid, also naked body? No? Then be thankful that the events shown at the very beginning of the first chapter are not going to happen, as a deliberate nod to ''Gurren Lagann'' having an introduction that was unlike the direction the story would end up going. On the other hand, the lack of an aged-up Wendy running around in only a single piece of tape on her crotch might disappoint some.

* RedHerring: RedHerring:
** The fic was retroactively written so that the beginning has a bizarre "flash foreward" to what is ''not'' how the story is going to go in a deliberate throwback to the beginning of ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann''. In it, a 19/20 year-old Dipper is seen along a Mystery Shack-spaceship hybrid where he has a crew consisting of Journal 3 (given a human body but otherwise keeping the book ''as his head''), Waddles (given sapience and a more humanoid form), Soos (who is naked and with fairy wings), the Pterodactyl (with cyber parts), and Wendy (who is wearing nothing but a single piece of duct tape over her vagina). He also has a robotic left arm, has a glowing drill on a necklace, and the narrative almost makes it blatantly obvious that Mabel is dead by this point. Anyone who knew about the opening to ''Gurren Lagann'' would find that, by the time the story goes to "the future," the actual fic would not be like this. [[spoiler:Lo and behold, ''Mabel'' is the one piloting Lagann (IE with the core drill) instead of Dipper and does not appear to be on death row any time soon. The Pterodatcyl is also dead by chapter 3. Soos ''does'' end up getting naked and it is heavily implied that he will stay that way, but jury's out on his fairy wings. So in an odd way, the beginning ''is'' foreshadowing some elements, they are just burried under a bunch of lies.]]

In-universe, topfreedom is apparently legal in that timeline, and there was "supposed to be" a huge arc about getting it legal spanning from chapters 11 all the way to 33. (This story will ''actually'' end on chapter 10.)

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: It's Dexter Morgan. Going against people with ElementalPowers.
* FakeCrossover: The Elementals are ''technically Hellsing'' {{Original Character}}s, but this is not an actual ''Hellsing'' crossover and no characters from that manga appear.
* {{Flanderization}}: Both of Trinity's appearances focus on his infamous nude-attack scenes, portraying him as though he constantly goes around naked.
* FullFrontalAssault: Dexter spends most of the story being naked after the Elementals use some clothing disintegration on him. Trinity is always naked.

** Kamina. In his debut in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', he was mostly regarded as a mature yet responsible party animal with a high-rank in the Spartan Time Travel corps. In ''Hecksing: The Dawn'', he enters his rivalry with Alucard proper and is shown to be a bit less mature than that. (Although that could be justified under Alucard and Kamina never crossing paths during the events of HUC proper -- [[spoiler:the former was dead by the time the latter rejoined]].) As ''guy with the ninja'' goes on, he's flat-out getting in to childish debates with Alucard here.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Parodied and gender-inverted, with Professor Dove trying to seduce Soos by being a "bad girl" in chapter 5, when they're already together. This also describes Soos, Melody, and Rumble's relationship with the [=.GIFfany=] copies in general, in a broader term.



* AscendedExtra:
** The show's previous [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] all havee much bigger roles, some of them even dwarfing Bill's role in this story. Just like ''run:gifocalypse'' (although not ''nearly'' to as big of an extent), [=.GIFfany=] has a lot of focus to the point of being a member of the SpotlightStealingSquad. Joining her this time, however, are Rumble (which is to be expected, given how he's a fellow video game-being and [[Literature/GravityFallsJournal3 they even end up together in canon]]) and the Summerween Trickster (which is a little less expected). Downplayed with the others -- the Shape Shifter and Pterodactyl ''are'' at least reoccuring in the form of Nzyvo's QuirkyMinibossSquad, but are still pretty "episodic" in terms of their role in the story. Ma and Pa are also episodic returning weekly monsters, but at least they get a second storyline devoted to fighting them.
** Melody is a member of the main cast following chapter 4 instead of being Soos' love interest with a major role in only one episode. The end of the first half implies that she will have an important role in the story running for president of the United States.
** Pacifica is actively involved with the main plot instead of being a side-character that gets caught up in a few weekly-monster situations, [[spoiler:although she is '''not''' Dipper's love interest. Or Mabel's, for that matter. She's the ''sister'' of both of them.]]



** "Creepypasta Sonic" is taken seriously by a grand total of zero characters and his "battle" just ends with him getting kicked away to parts unknown.

to:

** "Creepypasta Sonic" is taken seriously by a grand total of zero characters and his "battle" just ends with him getting kicked away to parts unknown. ''Spooky's'' retroactively makes this worse, as it too has a "Creepypasta X" character, only the "X" is ''Ronald [=McDonald=]''. And Creepypasta Ronald is ''still'' more of a threat than Creepypasta Sonic. So it's not just a "Creepypasta X" thing in ''SBIG'', it's specifically a Creepypasta ''Sonic'' thing.
* TheChosenOne: The people who were given the "Powers." Dipper, with the Power of Courage; Nzyvo, with the [[ShapedLikeItself Power of Power]]; and [[spoiler:Pacifica]], with the Power of Wisdom.



* EvilVersusEvil: Bill (possessing Gideon, at Gideon's own request) vs Not-Bill in chapter 3. One of them is a StalkerWithACrush that wants to force Dipper to marry him. The other is actually ''worse'', a demon trying to destroy reality for fun. The Mystery Shack crew ''could'' have stepped in and fought, but it was ultimately Bill who took on Not-Bill in battle and fired him out of a canon in to the Sun.



** Ever since [=.GIFfany=] shred his clothes by mistake (she was trying to kill him instead), Soos walks around butt-naked for the rest of the story.

** Ever since [=.GIFfany=] shred his clothes by mistake (she was trying to kill him instead), Soos walks around butt-naked for the rest of the story. It reaches a point where he inexplicably opts against wearing a helmet on a motorcycle after being asked if that technically means he will be putting on a form of clothes.



* IgnoreTheFanservice: In chapter 4, [=.GIFfany=] tries to seduce Soos by undressing herself and revealing... that she has [=DVDs=] of various science fiction series in the inside of her clothes. Soos cares about the [=DVDs=] and barely even cares that she's naked. Meanwhile, Rumble is clearly interested in the show, and Melody is downright flustered by her. [[spoiler:Subverted when she turns around and he ''is'' interested in her butt. In this verse, Soos is definitely an ass-man.]]



* LongTitle: All of the chapter titles, except for "Soos in Giffany Land" and "Family Reunion." The story itself has a name that is quite a mouthful too.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:It turns out that the story implying that Nzyvo might be a kind of alternate world counterpart of Mabel was all just a Red Herring. They are plain ol' sisters that look alike. Pacifica is another sister and another example of the trope, if one that looks less like any of the other three Pine kids.]]



* MsFanservice: Parodied with [=.GIFfany=] -- she's stated to be stacked, has a large ass, doesn't wear a bra, have a large collection of panties, and does not give a crap about going around completely naked. She also has a ''huge'' number of other copies willing to change their appearance to become a sort-of ThemedHarem (in this case, monster girls).

The end of chapter 4 has a number of them preparing food in nothing but aprons, while a small group of them takes up the showers.



* RedHerring: The very first chapter of the story introduces Nzyvo, whose name is just Mabel's put in an Atbash cipher. She also looks like Mabel, but DarkerAndEdgier, and she pilots a mecha that Mabel eventually finds the GoodCounterpart to. Towards the end of the first half, she also talks a ''lot'' about finding a certain relative. It sounds a lot like she's some kind of AlternateSelf, right? [[spoiler:Nope. She's a sister. She just looks weird and has these super-abilities because she was a government experiment. There ''isn't'' a "Dipper counterpart" -- the closest would be Pacifica.]]
* RedemptionEqualsSex: Gender-inverted: [[spoiler:Soos is pretty much credited as the one to redeem all of the [=.GIFfany=] copies, and shortly after his (off-screen due to its hour+ long length) speech they all have sex. Rumble and Melody are involved too, except neither of them was really "evil." (Rumble just has a bizarre way of understanding morality.)]]



* ToiletHumor: In chapter 4, Soos legitimately needs to use the bathroom while running away from millions of crazed stalkers after him. While there, the story lingers a bit when Wendy-the-copy (one such stalker) breaks in and he nearly forgets to... clean after himself. The narrator ''notably'' shows some hesitance in describing Soos' actions around that time.



* WalkingSpoiler:
** Pacifica. The moment she appears in the story is near the end of the WhamChapter cliffhanger for the second half/arc. [[spoiler:She's actually a long-lost sister to the Pines ''and'' Nzyvo, being a military project that was eventually adopted by the Northwests.]]
** Nzyvo. [[spoiler:She's the apparent Big Bad, but the end of the first half reveals that she was apparently ''good'' and just trying to save her sister Pacifica. She's another military experiment adopted by another branch of the Northwests, and knows about a mysterious "Typomonster" that needs to have a certain set of rituals done in other to please her.]]



** Chapter 4. [[spoiler:Nzyvo ditches her whole "band of villains" schtick entirely as the Shape Shifter dies, Gideon quits and leaves, and Rumble, [=.GIFfany=], and the Summerween Trickster all end up being "redeemed" and eventually join the Mystery Shack group. The Trickster quickly gets into a relationship with Stan, while the two video game characters end up getting intoa polygamous relationship with Soos and Melody. The chapter ends with Nzyvo sending a non-lethal blast to the Mystery Shack and challenging them all to the "final battle."]]

* AffectionateParody: The story as a whole is one to overly focusing on romance even though there are serious villain-beating-related issues at hand.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Specimen 9. Spooky and GL Labs do not like him, and have tried (and failed) to kill him. However, he is inexplicably loyal to the mansion despite being the only character confirmed to be able to leave whenever he wants to, and he's very powerful. This, Spooky at least ''tolerates'' him.




to:

* RunningGag: Bill's constant battling and bickering with Specimen 9.
* SkewedPriorities: Both Dipper and Mabel (to different extents) seem to think that Spooky's mansion is the ''perfect'' opportunity to get the former paired up with Pacifica. Despite being a thousand rooms full of deadly monsters that has a barrier preventing even powerful dream demons from leaving.
* TookALevelInBadass: Pacifica is not only notably ''more'' active than her canon counterpart, but she's actually getting things done at a quicker and more impressive rate than the far-more-experienced Pine twins. By contrast, Mabel and especially Dipper seem to be more focused on Dipper ending up with Pacifica, which seems to be a bit of a parody of fans having Dipper/Pacifica shipping goggles on most of the time.
* WinToExit: This was not the ''original'' plan of Spooky's mansion, but she decided to tell the group that this applies anyway in order to motivate them to actually move on deeper. It is not yet revealed if she is lying about this or not.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: While it becomes clear that Mabel is intentionally the main protagonist and not Dipper, [=.GIFfany=] and to a lesser extent the three people "connected" to her in some way (Soos, Melody, and Rumble) sucks up a significant amount of screentime despite not even being in the first chapter. (Hell, the first chapter has the distinction of being GPF's ''only'' 100% [=.GIFfany=]-free chapter in any ''Gravity Falls''-centric fan fic as of March 2017.) Chapter 2 is her introduction, 3 has her "brother" battling the gang and 4 -- by ''far'' the longest chapter in the entire first half -- is focused on her redemption and the antics of her copies. Things tone down a bit by chapter 5, which brings more focus on the Dipper and Mabel vs Nzyvo conflict, but she still gets screentime even there. It's quite telling that the fic is tagged as a [=Rumble/.GIFfany/Melody/Soos=] four-way, although that was more-so to both get a "wait, what?" reaction from potential readers and to give a solid idea on where the fic stands pairing-wise.



** In chapter 4, a RedemptionEqualsSex orgy is [[FanFic/HecksingUlumateCrconikals once again]] "censored." This time, however, the fake-author tells readers that the uncensored versions of both this ''[[BrickJoke and]]'' the one from ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' are available to those that donate ''$8,000/$80,001'' to his "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patreon Petereon]]" (he attempts to give a direct link, but thanks to fanfiction.net's automatic link removal system, it doesn't show up), a light comment on people who indirectly use erotica of someone else's copyrighted characters to encourage donations.

Not only is it more apparent as the first half goes on that he's ''not'' the hero, but he spends most of the story getting dragged around by Journal 3 getting keys. His only real "ability" is to teleport away. He ends up getting kidnapped by a creepy derivative of Bill that wants to marry him, and he finds out that [[spoiler:one of the girls he has a crush on is actually ''his long-lost biological '''sister'''''.]]
** "Creepypasta Sonic" is taken seriously by a grand total of zero characters and his "battle" just ends with him getting kicked away to parts unknown.
* ContrivedCoincidence: The fact that Nzyvo [[spoiler:''just so happened'' to end up with another Northwest, all for the sake of her technically being "Northwest twins" with Pacifica.]]



* FanDisservice: Stan's entire relationship with [[spoiler:the Summerween Trickster, a giant, sapient mass of "loser candy." This includes a relatively ''graphic'' (without getting into actual sex) description of Stan getting undressed and the two of them making a condom joke. Not to mention that Stan is in his 60s and has ''not'' aged as well as his brother had. Oh, and they try to do it in Dipper's bed. Dipper has to constantly spray them with a water bottle to convince them otherwise. Good luck looking at a candy wrapper the same way ever again.]]

* FanDisservice: DecoyProtagonist: Dipper. He doesn't ''die'' like a few of the other such characters in ''SBIG'', but as the first half goes on, it's made increasingly clear that this is really Mabel's story, not his.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Nzyvo ''isn't'' the main antagonist. Chapter 5 ends with her being on... somewhat good terms with the Pines, and there's still the entire second half of the story to go over.]]
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: WordOfGod was that the first one and a half chapters were written back when he had seen very little of ''Gravity Falls'', ''and'' the story was going to go in another direction. It shows there. He tried to invoke this by having a Nzyvo fight before she set up a more established "gang," which helps. Notably, Nzyvo only really gets the help of one random supernatural threat (the ghost couple from "The Inconveniencing")

** Ever since [=.GIFfany=] shred his clothes by mistake (she was trying to kill him instead), Soos walks around butt-naked for the rest of the story.
* GoodAllAlong: [[spoiler:Nzyvo, who wasn't really evil, but more of a puppet of the mysterious "Typomonster."]]



* HotterAndSexier: Chapter 4 sees a huge bump up in sexualization compared to the previous chapters.

to:

* HotterAndSexier: Chapter 4 sees a huge bump up in sexualization compared to the previous chapters. And considering the [=.GIFfanys=] and gods, the fic in general in this to ''Gravity Falls''.



* MeaningfulName: "Finalayer" sounds like "Final" and "Lair," and it's the final lair [[spoiler:of the first half of the story.]]



* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Happens with a good number of the members of Soos' "harem," but it's the most apparent with Soos himself, as he flat-out refuses to get dressed under the grounds of... well, he never really explains his logic of that.



* NakedApron: A brief outfit of a group of [=.GIFfany=]s near the end of chapter 4.

to:

* NakedApron: A brief An outfit of briefly described being worn by a group of [=.GIFfany=]s near the end of chapter 4.4.
* OneManArmy: Nzyvo. Can take down a good chunk of the townsfolk in Gravity Falls, the Mystery Shack group, and the entirety of [=.GIFfany=]'s copy army. In the same fight. She can also effortlessly throw the Gideon-Bot away.



** Nzyvo, of the CopyCatSue and VillainSue varieties. She's described as a "lazy palette swap of Mabel" by the summary itself, yet has very powerful abilities and holds a number of the show's canonical one-off villains on her side. Interestingly, ''she'' first starts off with Lazengann before Mabel gets Lagann, meaning that ''Mabel'' ends up copying ''Nzyvo'' in that aspect.
** Soos skyrockets into this as of chapter 4. [[spoiler:He has a harem in the ''millions'' -- and a Tumblr post from Great Pikmin Fan contains a blatant cipher that implies that they will be ''making even more copies of [=.GIFfany=]'' -- he not only does not lose the sweet girlfriend he already has, but also reforms his superpowered living video game girlfriend and all of her copies, and starts dating ''her'' superpowered living video game boyfriend. Not only does he and his three "main" lovers now have a harem that practically worships them, but it's implied that he just about has [=.GIFfany=] Land to himself, which is a sort of personalized paradise.]] All of this is in sharp contrast to Dipper, who goes through the story in a series of long, painful, slow journeys without any real fun on his part.

aspect. [[spoiler:With the reveal that she was Good All Along, Nzyvo throws on this further, getting a bunch of "unneeded sympathy."]]
** Soos skyrockets into this as of chapter 4. [[spoiler:He has a harem in the ''millions'' -- and a Tumblr post from Great Pikmin Fan contains a blatant cipher that implies that they will be ''making even more copies of [=.GIFfany=]'' (similar to her ''run:gifocalypse'' counterpart starting up a machine that makes more of them) -- he not only does not lose the sweet girlfriend he already has, but also reforms his superpowered living video game girlfriend and all of her copies, and starts dating ''her'' superpowered living video game boyfriend.

* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: Mentioned with Melody while she had to streak back to the Mystery Shack -- a particular crowdmember who liked "ENF" (Embarassed Naked Female) ended up oggling her. [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl .GIFfany]], on the other hand, scared him off[[note]]she did not intentionally make herself horrifying or anything like that -- she legitimately misheard him and thought he was into naturism, and her bold ''willing'' nudity is what scared him away[[/note]]. Considering the borderline harshness of this and patterns in GPF's other stories, he doesn't seem to be too fond of the former type of "Fanservice Girl," preferring the latter.



* SelfDeprecation: Chapter 3 makes note on ''FanFic/RunGifocalypse'', another, not-intentionally poorly written fanwork by Great Pikmin Fan, and points out a number of faults in the story's logic. Such as the [=.GIFfanys=] looking diverse for no real reason when ''Journals'' argues that it would make more sense in-universe that they would all prefer looking identical. Chapter 4 may drop having all [=.GIFfany=] copies look alike, but it tears down the premise further by displaying the copies as being... ''[[{{Yandere}} closer to canon]]'', so to speak.

** Anyone annoyed by Fan's spotlight-stealing [=.GIFfany=] copies might enjoy Nzyvo kicking their asses in chapter 5.
* SeparatedAtBirth: [[spoiler:''Quadruplets'' were this, separated in sets of "twins." First Dipper and Mabel to Pacifica and Nzyvo (military deal to keep the mother alive), then Nzyvo was implied to run away from the Gravity Falls Northwests and to the Bel-Air Northwests at a young age (given that Pacifica does not seem to know her, or recognize Mabel as looking similar to her).]]
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: The [=.GIFfanys=], [[FanFic/RunGifocalypse again,]] along with all four of the gods revealed in chapter 5. None of these characters mind walking around naked.
* ShipSinking: [[spoiler:As soon as Pacifica actually appears, the story reveals that she's biologically related to Dipper in this world. They're actually siblings, she was separated at birth and adopted by the Northwests. Fan's closing notes to the chapter imply that they are not just going to ignore this, the ship is already dead for good in the ''Journals'' verse, and they'll even try to see each-other as brother and sister now despite not even really knowing one-another until the same summer the story takes place in.]]
* ShoutOut: Nzyvo was apparantly raised by a "Phil [[spoiler:Northwest]]" [[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir in Bel-Air.]]



* SurpriseIncest: [[spoiler:Dipper and Pacifica are blood-related. Thankfully, the events of "Northwest Mansion Mystery" did not happen here, although Dipper's fixation on that seems to imply that he still developed a crush on her, and this reveal absolutely shattered him. Word of God was that this was done to troll shippers and a minor dig at a similar development in Act 4 of ''Homestuck''.]]



* WhamEpisode: Chapter 4. [[spoiler:Nzyvo ditches her whole "band of villains" schtick entirely as the Shape Shifter dies, Gideon quits and leaves, and Rumble, [=.GIFfany=], and the Summerween Trickster all end up being "redeemed" and eventually join the Mystery Shack group. The Trickster quickly gets into a relationship with Stan, while the two video game characters end up getting intoa polygamous relationship with Soos and Melody. The chapter ends with Nzyvo sending a non-lethal blast to the Mystery Shack and challenging them all to the "final battle."]]

** In chapter 5, roughly in order, [[spoiler:Nzyvo reveals to be quite the badass and able to curb-stomp ''the entire [=.GIFfany=] army'', among other characters, single-handedly. Dipper also turns out to have been missing an arm since an adventure that will be addressed in the future -- he was just wearing a prosthetic the entire time. Mabel and Nzyvo lose a leg to one-another in their battle, the Golden Goddesses themselves (and a god-like Kamina named Modascend) come in out of nowhere as guides to the group, and it turns out that Nzyvo was actually trying to find her sister... '''Pacifica.''' Nzyvo isn't a dark world counterpart to Mabel -- she and Pacifica were actually born as quadruplets with the Pines, but their births would have killed their mother. So, in a deal with the government to keep her alive, two of the kids were shipped off to a militant project. With Nzyvo, it worked, at the cost of making her like a feral animal, so she ended up running away from the Northwests at a young age to Bel-Air with Phil... Northwest. With Pacifica, the experiment failed, so she has no powers. Either way, Pacifica is the biological sister to the Pine twins and Nzyvo.]]



* TheWorfEffect: Fan does this with ''his own characters''. In chapter 5, Nzyvo is able to utterly ''decimate'' the [=.GIFfany=] army (if non-lethaly).



(Even though ''Gym Class'' is not out yet, enough was given from the ideas that a list can be compiled.)



!! ''Gym Class''

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: It involves John, Jade, Jane and Jake being trapped naked outside of school... then they have to take down a certain threat.
* NakedPeopleTrappedOutside: This is supposedly the premise.

''Isaac Unbounded''

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: It involves John, Jade, Jane and Jake being trapped MsFanservice: Eve is portrayed this way after the timeskip, with contrivance leaving her as the only naked outside of school... then they have character -- not that she cares at all. It also describes her as having a good figure.

Isaac and co as well, but she... well, lusts after them.

* CrackPairing: Invoked. In chapter 4, [[spoiler:Stan enters a very heavy, very sexual relationship with... the Summerween Trickster. Also, Soos ends up reconciling with [=.GIFfany=] while they're both still dating Melody and Rumble respectively, decide to become a foursome, and bring the other copies of [=.GIFfany=] in for the fun too.]]
* FanDisservice: Stan's entire relationship with [[spoiler:the Summerween Trickster, a giant, sapient mass of "loser candy." This includes a relatively ''graphic'' (without getting into actual sex) description of Stan getting undressed and the two of them making a condom joke. Not to mention that Stan is in his 60s and has ''not'' aged as well as his brother had. Oh, and they try to do it in Dipper's bed. Dipper has to constantly spray them with a water bottle to convince them otherwise. Good luck looking at a candy wrapper the same way ever again.]]
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Exaggerated. [[spoiler:Soos is highly implied to have enough stamina to leave over 4.4 '''million''' superpowered women (and one superpowered man, and on unsuperpowered woman) completely breathless and exhausted. It's also apparently a sign of them getting together as friends and being in a comitted relationship.]]
* HotterAndSexier: Chapter 4 sees a huge bump up in sexualization compared to the previous chapters.



* MythologyGag: Chapter 4 (the most sexual chapter in the story) has a number of nods to chapter 7 from ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' (the most sexual chapter of ''it''). Such as certain characters trying to sleep in a neutral party's bed (Integra's in HUC, Dipper's in ''Journals''), a "sex scene" being "censored" in the narrative to avoid the necessity to bump up the age rating, and [[spoiler:the fact that group sex was used to stop a number of psychotic villains.]] It also has a pointed out call back to the very end of HUC. [[spoiler:One of the reactions that the skyscraper-people have to seeing Melody's naked ass against their window is the same as one of the reactions to the city of London seeing Hecksing naked.]]
* NakedPeopleTrappedOutside: Happens briefly and near the end of chapter 4. [[spoiler:Soos, [=.GIFfany=], Melody, and Rumble all get back to th Mystery Shack in the buff, although Melody is the only one that minds. There ''were'' clothes nearby, except most of them were the revealing outfits of the other [=.GIFfany=] copies, and Melody would rather just brace towards going out in the nude than try to find something that is actually practical. Melody and Rumble's own clothes were destroyed by Professor Eve, while [=.GIFfany=]'s was way back in a forest in [=.GIFfany=] Land and Soos's was destroyed by [=.GIFfany=] even earlier than that.]]
* IgnoreTheFanservice: In chapter 4, [=.GIFfany=] tries to seduce Soos by undressing herself and revealing... that she has [=DVDs=] of various science fiction series in the inside of her clothes. Soos cares about the [=DVDs=] and barely even cares that she's naked. Meanwhile, Rumble is clearly interested in the show, and Melody is downright flustered by her. [[spoiler:Subverted when she turns around and he ''is'' interested in her butt. In this verse, Soos is definitely an ass-man.]]
* MsFanservice: Parodied with [=.GIFfany=] -- she's stated to be stacked, has a large ass, doesn't wear a bra, have a large collection of panties, and does not give a crap about going around completely naked. She also has a ''huge'' number of other copies willing to change their appearance to become a sort-of ThemedHarem (in this case, monster girls). The end of chapter 4 has a number of them preparing food in nothing but aprons, while a small group of them takes up the showers.
* NakedApron: A brief outfit of a group of [=.GIFfany=]s near the end of chapter 4.
* ParodySue:
** Nzyvo, of the CopyCatSue and VillainSue varieties.

Interestingly, ''she'' first starts off with Lazengann before Mabel gets Lagann, meaning that ''Mabel'' ends up copying ''Nzyvo'' in that aspect.
** Soos skyrockets into this as of chapter 4. [[spoiler:He has a harem in the ''millions'' -- and a Tumblr post from Great Pikmin Fan contains a blatant cipher that implies that they will be ''making even more copies of [=.GIFfany=]'' -- he not only does not lose the sweet girlfriend he already has, but also reforms his superpowered living video game girlfriend and all of her copies, and starts dating ''her'' superpowered living video game boyfriend. Not only does he and his three "main" lovers now have a harem that practically worships them, but it's implied that he just about has [=.GIFfany=] Land to himself, which is a sort of personalized paradise.]] All of this is in sharp contrast to Dipper, who goes through the story in a series of long, painful, slow journeys without any real fun on his part.
* PlotArmor: [=.GIFfany=] explicitely says that she survives a number of scenarios in the story because the author loves her. Rumble and the Trickster end up surviving the same thing, and appear to have similar plot armor protecting them.

* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Starts popping up in this installment as well, slowly but certainly. [=.GIFfany=]'s comical "Road Runner" skidding to a stop when she realizes that her physical form can fly and Melody having her naked butt get scraped against a hot window indicate this.
* StalkerShrine: Professor Leona has a long hallway filled with artwork of Soos. Professor Sonia also has a large collection of songs entirely about how obsessed she is with him.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Most of the [=.GIFfany=] copies -- their "new" outfits here are a step-up from their relatively modest portayals in ''run:gifocalypse''. Especially notable with Dove, who goes from a full militant suit to wearing nothing but three bandaids that apparently don't even fully cover what they're supposed to.
* SwiperNoSwiping: [[spoiler:Soos gets the [=.GIFfany=] copies to stop obsessing over him and see him as a genuine person to go out with simply by giving them a speech. Unlike Dipper with Gideon, this process takes him ''roughly an hour''.]]




to:

** Chapter 4 is by and large a dig at harems and pairing heroic characters with villainous characters.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Professor Eve of the post-reforming [=.GIFfany=] copies, who is blatantly built up as an "exception" that is a bit late to learning Soos's lessons on being friends. As of chapter 4, the worst she does could be considered a prank -- she just destroys Melody and Rumble's clothing so that they'll have to get home in the nude.
* UnwantedHarem: Soos had one of over four million [=.GIFfanys=] in chapter 4. [[spoiler:They remain a "harem," but are no longer "unwanted," after he talks some sense into them.]]
* WhamEpisode: Chapter 4.

The chapter ends with Nzyvo sending a non-lethal blast to the Mystery Shack and challenging them all to the "final battle."]]
* WholePlotReference: There are a number of parallels starting at the end of chapter 2 between Mabel's journey with Lagann and... well, ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' itself.
* YouAreNumberSix: The Journals are simply referred to the same names as they would when not alive -- "Journal 2," "Journal 3," etc. [=.GIFfany=] copies alternate between nicknames and numbers, although the one from canon is usually called "[=.GIFfany=] #9" as she refused to give herself a nickname.
