Ho Yay / Gravity Falls

Go To
Sure are a lot of stars out tonight...note 

  • In "Gideon Rises", Jeff the Gnome is told that Gideon is a beautiful girl and continues to believe so even after meeting him in person, caressing his hands and telling him that they are soft...
  • Tyler the Cute Biker always cheers on Manly Dan. This isn't helped by the fact that Tyler is Ambiguously Gay.
    • Tyler leaps into Manly Dan's arms in the finale.
  • Wendy and Mabel have had this, like when they were alone in "Society of the Blind Eye". Especially the "Forget about guys" line and Wendy going so far as to pretend to be a guy Mabel can practice her lines on.
    • Plus, Mabel shouting "Where dem sweet honeys at?" while trying to find a date for Soos in "Soos and the Real Girl".
  • Wendy's friends Lee and Nate. Only fueled more after "The Love God", where Lee is mad at Nate for not telling him about his crush on Tambry. They stop talking to each other until the end of the episode, where they playfully punch each other's shoulder.
  • "The Golf War" has Stan recline his seat and listen to some music. Soos does the same and comments on how there "sure are a lot of stars out tonight". Soos is not wearing a shirt at the time. Stan lampshades that the situation has gotten weird and leaves.
    • When Stan offers Dipper and Mabel a kiss on the cheek, Soos says he would like one.
    • In "Dreamscaperers", Soos finds a memory of Stan roller skating in short-shorts and says he doesn't look half-bad.

    • Soos's goal in life is to get adopted by Stan and change his name to Stan Jr. Considering the above examples, this starts becoming Freudian.
  • The Stinger in "Northwest Mansion Mystery" where the two agents pretend to be a couple, and even when they drop the act, they begin to bicker like a married couple. Tambry walks in, but then immediately walks out saying she's not going to ask.
  • Bill Cipher and The Author, Ford Pines, in "The Last Mabelcorn". Hoo boy, where to start? Although Bill was an Evil Former Friend/False Friend, the two of them once worked together as partners and The Author considered him a close friend. During their partnership, he willingly allowed Bill to possess him as he pleased, and upon finding out he was being manipulated all along felt devastated and betrayed. Even afterwards Bill acts almost flirty towards him, putting his arm around him, ruffling his hair and flicking his nose playfully. No wonder the idea of shipping them is now trending something fierce.
    • Plus there's the fact that The Author basically seemed to worship Bill. The walls in his study are plastered with drawings of Bill, hidden behind tapestries of Bill. The windows are Bill-shaped, there's a carpet with Bill on it, which the author used for meditation... he even has an ornate golden statue of Bill.
    • Even after how badly their relationship soured and the Author's reaction to Bill the last time they met, Bill still offers him a place amongst his brethren (admittedly to revel in the chaos and anguish of the human world and not before insulting him again, but it's the thought that counts).

    • Plus Ford's comment in the newly published Real Life Journal #3, saying that Bill will seduce his victims. Granted he was talking about flattery, but still!
    • Also, while all the other residents of Gravity Falls are turned to stone and stacked into Bill's throne, Ford alone is turned to gold and carried around by Bill for various (and admittedly insulting) purposes.
    • In "Weirdmageddon Part 3: Take Back the Falls", The Author/Ford is freed from his golden form… and has a glowing blue chain around his neck while Bill talks to him. In context, it's definitely Not What It Looks Like.
      • To push things even further, the Author wakes up in a fancy enclosed room to Bill playing the piano, serenading about them meeting again, and sipping time punch out of a wine glass.
      • Not to mention that the song Bill chose is "We'll Meet Again" by Ross Parker which is a Love Song.
    • A more comical example after Wendy breaks Ghost Eyes' arm:
    Gideon: Ghost Eyes! My hench-angel!
  • Bill and Dipper get one moment in "Sock Opera". Their first meeting involves Bill insisting that Dipper missed him and how he (Bill) liked him. He also is touchy-feely toward him in this episode, even touching his lower back with a smug look.
  • In the spin-off Don't Color This Book!, there's a two-page spread dedicated to "Mabel's Future Match-Making Projects", which include Blind Ivan and the Tattooed Bouncer, Toby Determined and his Life Coach, and Quentin Trembley and America Guy.
  • There's also The Author Ford Pines and his assistant, Fiddleford McGucket.
    • There isn't much Ho Yay for these two in the series alone, not considering that hug in Weirdmageddon 3 but there is a lot of stuff in Gravity Falls: Journal 3.
    • Some of the gayer quotes from the Journal include:
    "I am overcome with emotion. The sight of my old classmate upon my doorstep has filled my heart with such joy and gratitude."
    "Not only is this man's mind superior to mine, but he's also got one of the kindest hearts I've ever seen."
    • Ford also refers to his "friend" as the "man I once held so dear"
    • Also, the password to F's laptop is STANFORD.
  • While a lot of this could be chalked up to his intense personality, Mr. Poolcheck seems to show a lot of undue interest in Dipper. When they meet, the first thing Poolcheck does is sniff Dipper, ostensibly to check his sunblock. Later, when he sees Dipper ignoring pool rules, he is so betrayed that he starts crying. He also seems to put a lot of trust in Dipper, considering they just met.
