Normal PicturesDib watched the bird through the camera viewer, waiting patiently for it stand still. It was midafternoon in Gravity Falls, and with the sun was coming out, the brisk morning air would soon give way to more typical summer temperatures.Normal Pictures by Anonymous-Materials
The weather had been something Dib appreciated when he had came up here with his family. Gravity Falls currently had perfect trenchcoat weather: cold enough to require it in the morning, but never so hot for so long that wearing it would be torturous. Summers in his home city always felt terrible, a result of the urban environment coupled with the high humidity. His trenchcoat made those days feel especially unbearable, but he could never go the day without it. An investigator without his trenchcoat is like a photographer without his camera. It just didn’t happen.
And the trees! Gravity Falls was nestled within a vast forest, and so far Dib had seen more trees in just a few hours than he had seen his entire life back in the city. Currently he was d
Kila Ilo: Initiation previewThe ground moved and Vikitier lost her already precarious balance. She tumbled down the hill, rolling head over feet until she reached the bottom, where a tree finally stopped her. She cried out as the back of her head erupted in pain, her vision going white. She blinked her eyes, trying to regain focus as her hand searched for her spear. As she started to wonder if the spear fell elsewhere, her fingertips brushed by something long and wooden.

The idiot who brewed the potion for her initiation must have overlooked the fact that she half the size of a typical jukani. With the amount she drank, she’ll be lucky if her heart doesn’t burst outright.
She looked at the hill she had fal
Mort Takes A Holiday Rewrite Sneak Peak, Part 2Mort stood frozen to the spot, his head craning up to maintain (reluctant) eye contact with the alicorn. Thanasia towered over him, her ashen body and rigid form almost making her look like a small monument. Even her expression was stone-faced.Mort Takes A Holiday Rewrite Sneak Peak, Part 2 by Anonymous-Materials
"T-talk?" he squeaked out, trying to keep his teeth from chattering. "T-talk about what?"
She arched an eyebrow, looking vaguely bemused. "I believe you know. In fact, I know you know."
Mort gulped. The benefits of a mental link meant instantaneous communication, no matter where you were, or how far you were separated. The downside was that you inevitably got peeks into the psyche of the one you were connected to. Well, except for Thanasia, whose mind was more guarded than any safe, prison or moon. Mort imagined his own mind was about as secure as a straw house.
Nonetheless, he felt compelled to put forth a token denial. "W-what's there to t-talk about?" he asked her innocently, trying to sound baffled even as the terror was clear in his
