Prologue: The Lost Constellations

Gravity Falls, Oregon.

It wasn't the biggest town around, let alone the most popular. The people were weird, as was the town - but the weirdest of all were the secrets the town, itself, held within. Vampires, multibears, gnomes that stood on top of each other to look like zombies that sought to make a little girl their queen, and... Little Gideon. That creep practically had his own category. And that was saying something, considering he was just some child.

A very disturbed child, albeit.

The point was, weird might as well have been normal in the little backwater town. And, to one half of the second generation of Pines twins, it was. Going out and seeking oddities and mysteries was, well, basically the story of the whole portion of summer they'd stayed there so far. Out of the pair, though, it was Dipper that was more into it. And wherever her five-minute-younger brother went, Mabel would follow. They did everything together, after all. Even the life-risking, rule-breaking, insane and petrifying things.



So, naturally, Mabel was alarmed when she awoke to no bro-bro lying in the bed next to hers. "...Bro-bro?" she inquired, tiredly looking around their shared room. When she noted he wasn't there, she rushed down the stairs, searching all over the place. When she found nothing, she immediately called to her great uncle. "...Grunkle Stan, have you seen Dipper this morning?" The brunette could've sword the man's eyes briefly narrowed slightly. But before the old man could so much as move his lips to speak, Mabel realized there was still a place she hadn't checked.

"Thanks, Grunkle Stan!" she chimed, rushing to the kitchen and, after entering a certain code in a certain vending machine, down into a hidden lab she'd only known of since a mere few days before. "Hey, wait! I didn't even answer ye--" she'd heard the man call after her. But it was too late - she was already rushing down. Sighing, and with a slightly sad look on his face, Stanley only shook his head and took a sip from his drink before climbing to his feet.

Meanwhile, Mabel had reached her destination: but she didn't see her brother there. Only the same two figures she'd come to be... relatively used to the presence of, stood around, discussing things the girl didn't understand. Or care about, at that. She just wanted to know where her twin was. "..Uh, hey, Grunkle Ford..? Have you seen Dipper?" the girl spoke in a much quieter tone of voice than usual, awkwardly rubbing her neck as she did so.

Her great uncle Ford stood closest, chin cupped into one of his six-fingered hands as he talked in that tone of voice usually accompanied with some big confusing words. He'd been talking like that a lot more since the arrival of their mysterious female guest.



"... Actually, I feel a stronger hypothesis is that you were drawn to the high concentration of the improbable surrounding Gravity Falls. Perhaps that is the clear reason we are unable to clearly define the portal's destination-- our universe, specifically the small town of Gravity Falls, is keeping you here! You are an anomaly yourself, Lalonde."

The woman Ford spoke to, their mystery guest, had arrived a few weeks ago out of the weird portal locked up in the secret basement of the Mystery Shack. She'd come out wide-eyed and panicked, two emotions Mabel would come to learn was strangely abnormal for the older woman to normally exhibit. Uusally, she was calm and serene, giving off a motherly air to the Pines twins.

Well, at least when she was sober.

Though she had become settled in the weeks since working with Ford, Ms. Lalonde's physical appearance had worsened every day. Now, even with her blonde hair brushed over her eyes and her pink scarf covering the majority of her face, Mabel could tell the woman looked as pale as a ghost.



"Interesting idea, dear, but not one that helps us for the moment. While it is truly peculiar this portal in particular would interfere with my own, the how and why does not truly concern me. I simply wish to get back to my intended destination, and now we are close enough that I can't waste time on idle chatter."

Ford looked momentarily disappointed with Ms. Lalonde brushing him off. He crossed his arms and shook his head before positioning himself at a panel made up of a bunch of flashy buttons and levers. "Perhaps I'm not looking forward to your departure, Lalonde. But, I understand. Hopefully we will see each other again."

Ms. Lalonde didn't respond for a moment, her eyes transfixed on the massive portal before her. It wasn't clear she even heard Ford, until she said, "If it works this time, say goodbye to the children for me."

Come on....

Hardly even registering the talk of Lalonde leaving between all of the words that Mabel would likely call something like 'complexicated', the child only really noticed the fact that she wasn't noticed. Figures. Of course, out of all the people Dipper was most likely to be with, here was the guy - and he was too caught up with the latest odd arrival to Gravity Falls to pay attention to her.



"...Guess not," she muttered with a soft sigh. Mabel could only shake her head and turn to leave, dragging her feet as she did so. Which, note to herself, made climbing the stairs more than a little difficult. Looked like she'd have to take her search somewhere else.

It didn't take long for the girl to start out the door of the shack, but what she hadn't been expecting was the sudden surge of movement from beneath her and the surge of light that came with it, quite literally throwing her off her feet and out the door she had only just pulled open.

"Ahhhhh!!-"

Slam!

~~~

To say Stanford and Lalonde's attempt with their portal had been a success would be a massive lie, based on the mass of new figures littered around the Mystery Shack's interior alone. Yes, it appeared that the machine had backfired somehow - rather than sending Lalonde home as it should have, it appeared to have pulled new people in, acting as some sort of multiversal beacon.

Fascinating, perhaps, but also massively problematic.

One thing that was notable about the shack to all of those now within it's extremities was the plethora of junk strewn all about. Namely in the gift shop, really. Who could even call most of this stuff merchandise, let alone put such ridiculously large price tags on them? But, then again, that was hardly the concern at the moment.

For whether or not the group liked- or even realized -it, they were in Gravity Falls, now.



"...Yeah, Soos? We can talk when you get to work, man."

Plenty of people were around to interact with, most of them seeming to have been drawn there unceremoniously. Maybe some of them had an idea of what was going on. Of course, then there was the wide-eyed redhead staring at the lot of new arrivals with an unamused expression who had just got off the phone, or the flickering light that could still faintly be made out seemingly coming from behind some sort of vending machine. There was always the simple option of trying to explore the place a bit, too.
