* Tags: This author has written a handful of delightfully quirky Gravity Falls fics, some of which focus on character speculation, and others that explore rarer pairings. Laced throughout all of them is an interesting use of metaphors and creative narrative. It's a bit sticky in some places, especially their first story (a Recess crossover), but the overall characterizations are great. One that especially stands out to this troper is Never Eat Soggy Waffles, a fluffy and wonderfully peculiar narrative about Stan and the twins driving around in a hair-brained scheme that ultimately has them crossing paths with the still evolving character of Pacifica after Northwest Mansion Noir.

* '''Recommended by''': @/{{foxkindle}}
* '''Status''': Complete
* '''Synopsis''': Dipper just wanted to have a normal college life- well, as normal as one could have it while continuing to research the mysteries of Gravity Falls. He did NOT intend to have to deal with losing all of his work just as he needed it the most. [softreturn] He also did not intend to have a demon be his only chance of getting it back.
* '''Pairing(s)''': Dipper/human!Bill Cipher, background Mabel/Pacifica
* '''Tags''': Aged-Up Characters, Explicit Content, Magic Use, DarkFic
* '''Comments''': All of the characters in this fic have been aged up to college, and the twins have been to Gravity Falls every summer until graduation, when Dipper decided to move there. The events of "Not What He Seems" are incorporated into it. This fic has a very nice balance between plot and shipping. Very good characterization for Bill - even though this is a shipping fic, Bill is definitely not the fluffy, cuddly type, and is still very much a dangerous, sadistic and selfish dream demon - but apparantly, even demons have feelings, and Bill can be nice when he wants to. Also, Mabel is a protective sister and poor Dipper is just a mess of anxiety and feelings. Warnings include: [[spoiler:Moderately-Graphic Violence, Possesiveness, Memory Loss, Sexual Content, Nightmares, some really Dirty Talk, Scarification]]

* '''Synopsis''': Several years in the future, Wendy is invited to join the twins on a grand cross-country trip to investigate reports of paranormal activity across the US. But little does she or Dipper realize is that while they hunt and do battle with all kinds of monsters and oddities, Mabel is secretly working on her boldest plan ever...a plan to make the ultimate match.
* '''Pairing''': Dipper/Wendy
* '''Tags''': Slow Build, Future-Pines, Matchmaker Mabel, Supernatural Road Trip
* ''Comments''': Stated by the author to be a sort of "prequel" to his "Pines Will Be Pines" collection, this is a cute, humorous story about stressed college student Dipper, a Wendy who's still getting over a bad breakup, and Mabel planning to stealthily get them together over the course of a cross-country supernatural investigation trip for Great-Uncle Ford in a rust-bucket of an RV named The Lady Mabelton (by Mabel of course). On the way they deal with vampiric cows, skunk-apes, subterranean worm-moles, and all manner of supernatural oddities.

Another interesting element is how other supernatural entities regard Kyubey. (i.e. Bill, the TimePolice, the Love God, etc.)
** One of the other elements of the story is that the majority of the characters in Gravity Falls, [[spoiler:bar Ford and some of the supernatural entities]], are unaware of the AwfulTruth of forming a contract with Kyubey, specifically [[spoiler: Kyubey rips out the souls of those magical girls and places them in Soul Gems]] and their [[spoiler:inevitable fate of becoming Witches]].

[[DramaticIrony Dramatic Irony]] ensues for readers who are familiar with Kyubey and the MagicalGirls from Madoka's world.

* Comments: A fanfic that uses its simple premise to remix all ready beloved content into delightful, new contortions; repurposing the framework of familiar episodes to craft something new, interesting, and entertaining with them as their base. The first chapter's a little rough, but subsequent installments just keep getting better and better. I'd recommend trying chapters 3, 6, and 7 at least, as they showcase this AU and story's unique strengths at their best. The writing style is also worthy of praise. It's very straightforward and quick to the point, but it's detailed where it counts so all the jokes, action scenes, and character beats stick the landing in very easy-to-follow and visualize sequences.

* ''Status'': On-going
* ''Synopsis'': Thirty years ago, Stanley Pines made a deal. Now, in the wake of Bill's defeat and his brother's disappearance, Ford begins to unravel Stan's secrets.
* “Comments”: This fic is a variation on the Neverhuman AU by [[http://notllorstel.tumblr.com/ notllorstel]] on tumblr, done both with notllorstel’s permission and before they had revealed certain details of that AU, making it technically an AU of an AU. Please don’t let that put you off, though, because this fic is AMAZING! It really captures the mystery, supernatural, and over-arching themes of family from the original show, all to the extent that there were times I was at least mildly certain that the author was somehow in contact with Alex Hirsch. Confusing at first due to lack of reader knowledge, it draws you in, with more and more details being added each chapter, with a thrill of excitement and terror as it becomes clearer and clearer that Stan really ISN’T what he seems. This fic is almost complete, we’re just missing the last chapter. Definitely worth reading, though, and, amazingly enough, currently stopped at a point that won't leave you with the desire to strangle the author for stopping there. Though the last chapter would definitely be nice, there's still a few things left to sort out.

* Recommended by: Notriddle
* Status: In Progress
* Synopsis: Bill's deal with Dipper wasn't off at the end of Sock Opera; Pine Tree is now officially Bill's emissary and adopted child, complete with a growing ability to use Bill's (intoxicating) powers on his own.
* Comments: No OC's. No shipping. Just pure drama of the gut-wrenching type.

''[[http://imgur.com/gallery/G0bFHXn Crossover Rick and Morty & Gravity Falls]]'' by [[http://imgur.com/user/Filippenkow Filippenkow]]
* Recommended by MattP5557
* Crossover with: WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: Shortly after his return [[spoiler:Ford]] pays a visit to Rick's universe and try's out his Inter-Dimensional goggles.
* Comments: Shorter than "A Tale of Two Stans" but just as [[TearJerker moving]], if I have one complaint it's that Rick really doesn't do much.

* Tags: Stories range from funny to angst-y. My favorites: "A Father and Daughter Talk," with Wendy and her dad sharing beers as she confesses her feelings for a younger Dipper. "The Big Con," which brings the GF crowd into the real world, where they enter a Masquerade at a convention, hoping to win first place.

* Tags: Stories tend to be about Dipper, Mabel, and Stan, most of them set in an imaginary second summer in Gravity Falls. There's some Wendip, but not extreme, and the tales range from funny to angst-y. My favorites: "A Father and Daughter Talk," with a 19-year-old Wendy and her dad sharing beers as she confesses her feelings for a younger 16-year-old Dipper. There are also "The Big Con," which brings the GF crowd into the real world, where they enter a Masquerade at a convention, hoping to win first place.
place, "Trans Pacifica," which has a hilarious ending, and "A Taste of Ashes," which is surprisingly moving at times and reads like one of the darker episodes. Style and language are generally good.

* Comments: There's some Australian slang you wouldn't hear in California bleeding through. Recommended for [=LCypherED=]'s grasp on characterization, ''like woah.''
