Doctor Who! Discworld! And other things that catch my fancy.
Ugh, yes! It’s such a clever freaking show! I just consistently admire how much work they put into it and I almost always catch new stuff whenever I re-watch the episodes (which I do… a lot…)
also the themesong is literally the catchiest thing I’ve ever heard seriously I was dancing to it in the laundry room earlier and someone almost walked in on me
Also, Grenda: I think she’s a great character, because even though here wrestler voice is played for laughs (I’m not gonna lie - I think it’s hilarious) she gets to express herself however she wants and the narrative doesn’t put her down for it. We need more shows like that.
I may or may not have a few trans girl headcanons about her as well. i may or may not have one for half the mains in the show.
I CAN HAS YOUR HEADCANONS PLZ?!?!
OKAY BUT I WARN YOU THERE’S A LOT
So basically I fell like head-first into the headcanon of trans girl Mable after reading this awesome fic and it’s basically everything I believe - like everyone being super supportive and not making a fuss and Grunkle Stan being ecstatic because it’s easier to con people with little girls around (and I am building this on the vision that whatever world Gravity Falls occupies it is my happy place where people don’t always get this stuff, but nobody thinks it’s all that odd).
And then there’s this fic where Dipper and Mable are both transgender and, having their own little convenient twin psychic powers (not really but you know what I mean) they tell each other almost at the same time and then get super excited because then they can give each other pointers and exchange clothes and stuff (and also I have this idea that Dipper’s identity factors into his insecurities a lot and why he was so determined to prove his masculinity in Dipper vs. Manliness - Mabel is overall a more confident person but she has her moments as well.)
And sometimes Dipper wonders if, seeing all the weirdness in Gravity Falls, their minds somehow went to the wrong bodies before they were born - but then the electronic carpet thing happens and he realizes that even though he gets to have ‘boy’ parts and Mabel gets to have ‘girl’ parts it’s still not their bodies they’re living in. Plus, suddenly switching bodies with your sister is just weird.
Then there’s Grenda, who doesn’t find out she’s intersex until she reaches puberty - but who is actually super pumped when her voice changes because she’s really into professional wrestling and doesn’t mind sounding like her heroes - and mostly she’s somewhere on the nonbinary scale of things, but is still very feminine. And she and Mabel are so happy when they tell each other because they have someone to talk to who gets it.
(I’m also pretty sure that Manly Dan and Tyler the Cute Biker are at least going out and that you can find him in most of the Corduroy family albums)
(And we all know Deputy Durland and Sheriff Blubs are married so I don’t need to go into that.)
(Also I haven’t decided yet whether I’m headcanoning Wendy as polyamorous or aromantic. Further research shall be needed to decide but I think both make for valid interpretations.)
yes good much like
Okay so I’ve packed my bags and contacted the lady who’s going to pick me up tomorrow.
