" I have to admit I was fooled when I first met him, he seemed fun at first and then…well. In the end, I got burned." Billy was cute though. He was charming in an eccentric way, but her emotions blinded her. He warned her, her friends warned her. The past caught up with both of them. She woke up, and it broke her heart.

She smiled at his impersonation of that past crush, the fact he thought good of her was a good sign that things didn’t end that badly for him. At least he had some good memories. ” Nah, she sounded like fun.”

He stuffed his hands in his pockets “To be honest, Wendy’s my best friend in the world.”  Seriously, there was no one else on earth he liked hanging out with and laughing at dumb stuff with or who just got him like Wendy did.  It was kind hard to believe he had had wanted to be her boyfriend way back then, if only she didn’t keep teasing him for it at opportune moments.  “But um…I’d sure that’s a bunch of information you didn’t ask for,” he said with a chuckle.

Dipper wasn’t surprised that Ricky’s first encounter with someone named Bill Cipher had been unpleasant “What exactly happened?”  He asked in a softer voice, getting in the vehicle.  “And how did you get him to leave you alone?”

" It’s fine. It’s sweet to hear to you two stayed good friends. You certainly need more like that." she smiled. Wendy was a good person, at least the one knew in her universe. She got along with the Corduroy family well.

" As for Bill, it was the opposite, I pursued him."

That was not far from the truth, but not in the way he’d be thinking. Her romantic feelings for him combined with his mind reading actually kept him away from her. But like an idiot she kept chasing after him. She could’ve saved herself so much heartache had she not wasted of her emotions, she now knew she could do so much better.

" He was trying to get away from me. I left him alone when I was done with his lies. But I don’t want to discuss him, he leaves a bitter taste in my mouth."

She realized that probably filled the young man’s head with even more questions. ' I said too much. Damn.'

Nooo. I suppose he thinks of him as a sort of son now. it’s still better than him going to live with the Pines, goodness knows Mr. Stanford would love to share his tricks of the trade as a conartist.

That’s so fucking cute, Ricks. You have a… big brother now? You said he was in, like, his twenties, right? So, yeah, big brother!

And oh my god, Mr Stanford would be the worst kind of parent for him. I mean, yeah, he loves Dips and Mabes, but he’s not really good role model material. Probably teach the poor goat dude how to steal before he worked on reading or whatever.

…I guess I do. Huh, weird how that turned out, not complaining though. He’s about 25 as a human, which works out for him in the end, goats only live to be 12 years old.

Oh gosh, no. I don’t know the Pines that well, but I gotta wonder what goes on in Dipper and Mabel’s parents minds to send them here for the summer.

My Dad taught Gompers Dad jokes, on the excuse that someday he may become a Dad himself. Our dinner consisted of my disapproving glares.

Next thing he’s going to teach him is to stop people from moving the thermostat in winter and turn off the lights whenever people leave rooms.

Thank you, Mr Northwest.

Sphinx unearthed from 1923 Cecil B. DeMille movie set

Buried beneath the shifting sands of the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes is a story of Biblical proportions.

In 1923, legendary filmaker Cecil B DeMille built an epic Egyptian dreamscape on California’s Central Coast for his silent, The Ten Commandments. 

Twenty one giant sphinxes lined the path to an 800 foot wide temple. Legend has it that after filming was done, the set was too expensive to move and too valuable to leave for rival film makers to poach - so DeMille had it pushed into a trench and buried. 

And so there the Sphinxes lay, entombed in graves of sand, where they were mostly forgotten. 

Until now.

" No! I thought I was making you uncomfortable. I mean. we just met and here I’m all gung-ho, let’s get rid of that demon…maybe I came across as too eager." she explained " „,ugh I’m kind of a dork sometimes. I’m sorry. "

"Oh, Ricky…" it was true, he had been rather paranoid, but that was a good old fashioned Dipper Pines trait.  It wasn’t like Ricky was the first person to trigger that.

"You know just as well as I do how dangerous Bill is.  That’s great!  No, I’m not upset at all!  Sometimes I wish other people would take him seriously.  I mean, just because he’s a bright color and he tells a lot of jokes, because think he’s cute, or whatever?"  He shuddered "What is wrong with people…"

<Who says an avatar of unbridled evil and suffering can’t be adorable?>  Bill pondered.

"You’re not a dork," he continued "well, not if don’t want to be.  My first crush was a major dork…" he said with a lopsided smile.  "Mean, she used to do this robot dance thing you should have seen!"  He stiffened his back and impersonated the dance for a few seconds "Really, giant dork!"  He threw his arms in the air.  Wait now, why was he telling her about Wendy?

" I have to admit I was fooled when I first met him, he seemed fun at first and then…well. In the end, I got burned." Billy was cute though. He was charming in an eccentric way, but her emotions blinded her. He warned her, her friends warned her. The past caught up with both of them. She woke up, and it broke her heart.

RELAAAX, I barely even recognized him, he’s like 20. The Dipper in my verse is barely 13. If anything he’d probably look like some older Pines relative from out of town.

And the arcade was his idea, not mine. If it were up to me I’d take him to The Club or something, maybe out to a movie. But first things first, I do want to help him out, then we’ll see where that goes.

You’re not helping him by wasting all your time having fun.

That’s what we’re trying to do, get things out of the way first and then take a break. I’m sure he could use it.

" …What?"

Wait what the heck?

"You sure? It’s no trouble." she paused. She remembered what he said about Bill tricking him before, maybe something she said made him suspicious. Oh no. She was probably coming across as too eager to help, and he was in a new universe, they only just met and…

" Did I say something wrong?"

He blinked a few times “No I just-” he had heard her less than enthusiastic utterance.  He had been right about that, right?  He did get this wrong sometimes- it was Mabel who was the social butterfly- Dipper was always missing cues.  He hadn’t even realize he had had a crush on Wendy until she had pointed it out to him.

"No!  I just thought I was making you uncomfortable!"  He rubbed the back of his neck.  She was probably his same height within an inch. "So, I’m not?"

" No! I thought I was making you uncomfortable. I mean. we just met and here I’m all gung-ho, let’s get rid of that demon…maybe I came across as too eager." she explained " „,ugh I’m kind of a dork sometimes. I’m sorry. "
