Gravity Falls is an animated adventure/comedy/mystery/fantasy series on the Disney Channel.


The series revolves around 12-year-old twins Dipper and Mabel Pines, who are sent to spend the summer with their Great Uncle ("Grunkle") Stan, who runs a tourist trap called the "Mystery Shack" in the remote town of Gravity Falls, Oregon. After Dipper finds a mysterious journal in the woods, the two begin investigating the paranormal secrets surrounding the town.






Since its creation, Gravity Falls has had an extremely devoted fandom. Because the show is full of secret messages, codes and clues, the fandom originally grew based on decoding and theorizing the future of the show. Since the show's ending, the fandom primarily focuses on fanart, fanfiction etc.

  • An Outsider's Look at the Pines Twins by iguessso12 - "The Pines twins have been steeped in mayhem, mysteries, and magic every summer since they were 12 years old. Coming back home to Piedmont, going to high school, acting normal? All those things make them stick out like a sore thumb. When you ask outsiders about the Pines twins, you get a mix of strange stories and casual observations."
