    Default The Mystery Shack (Gravity Falls Fanclub)

    Grunkle Stan:
    “Welcome to the Mystery Shack, be prepared to be awed and amazed at all the Gravity Falls fan-boying/girling going on inside. Okay, now that we got that out of the way (are you still reading this in a Stan voice? Weird, isn't it?), this club is a place for fans of Gravity Falls to get together and discuss the show; their favorite episodes, creatures, places, and characters, their exceptions, theories, and desires, and the ever important secret ciphers messages.”

    What is Gravity Falls?
    For anyone who has stumbled into this thread not knowing what Gravity Falls is:
    It's an awesome animated show on The Disney Channel and Disney XD, in which two preteen kids (Dipper and Mabel) are sent to the remote community of Gravity Falls to spend the summer with their Great Uncle (Grunkle Stan) who runs a cheesy tourist trap with fake paranormal exhibits, despite the woods all around them being full of real paranormal creatures.

    Adding interest to this already entertaining concept, secret messages are included in pretty much every episode and short. Often these use Ceaser or Abash Ciphers, but others have occasionally been included.

    New Episode Schedule:
    *Exact time will depend on your timezone and what channels you get*

    2, 3 - The Golf War (Sun 17th, Sat 23rd, Sun 24thm on XD & Fri 22nd, Sun 24th, on Disney Channel)
    2, 4 - Sock Opera (September)
    2, 5 - Soos and the Real Girl (September)
    2, 6 - TBA (TBA)

    Why I like Gravity Falls: I like the loopy paranormal concepts, the characters which actually have personalities, the catchy theme song, and the fact that the show doesn't feel canned. I also like that the puzzles give me something to do between episodes, and how Dipper reminds me of my childhood, being the brave kid.

    Team: Wendy(This was hard, it was between her, Dipper, and Cipher.)
    Favorite episode: Dreamscaperers
    Why I like Gravity Falls: I like(no, LOVE) the show because I've always like mysteries and stuff and always reading about them, so I guess the show just caught my attention and I loved it ever since. I also always liked shows with action and comedy, and this show has both!

    EDIT: Yes, I am still reading it in Stan's voice, and yes it is weird.

    Welcome to the club. . . oh, wait try this:

    Soos:
    Heh, Welcome to the club dude.

    Okay, I'll stop messing with your mind now. I know, it was a hard decision for me too, because I really like Soos and Wendy as well. We haven't seen enough of Bill for me to fully make up my mind on if I like him, but I think he's the most seriously threatening villain the show has had so far (even with Gideon gaining control of the Shack).

    Okay, Team Waddles has been added, and you are in it, (unfortunately, the poll can only have 10 choices).

    The Timetraveler's Pig is my favorite episode so far as well, though Scary-oke was pretty awesome as well.

    Favorite Episode: (GAHH I DON'T KNOW) Land Before Swine(?)
    Why I like Gravity Falls: Basically, its humor and characters. I mean, it does have interesting stories and relationships, but the quirkiness of the humor is something that you don't find very often. Although people have compared it to Adventure Time, I think that it's superior to Adventure Time in a way. It has a sense of more order, less disjointedness, and a far more wholesome way of accomplishing its jokes and references. The characters are wonderfully designed, with Mabel taking a very close first in my list of favorites. Seriously, these characters are some of my favorite of all time ever, on the level of like, Avatar (the Last Airbender) or something. AND WADDLES! WADDLES! Do you need any other reason? I mean, for real.

    I agree that it's more liner, organized, and not always as blunt as Adventure Time (I'm sure it would be as blunt, if it wasn't for it being on Disney, what with the stuff the editors made them cut), though Adventure Time does have some merits of it's own, it's a great escapism. Avatar, not so much, the char designs were nice, but the acting was so flat (in my opinion) I couldn't watch it.

    I kinda disagree with the Avatar thing. Certainly, there were characters who were flatly acted throughout the series, but there were those that had their moments, and others who were just flat out awesome (in my opinion). Iroh (although he had an actor change), Toph, and the King of character development, Zuko. But hey, this isn't an Avatar club, so I'm dropping it.

    In other news, I have a request for a banner for the club ready. I just gotta wait for the queue to open up. Should I go for it?


    EDIT: I went for it.

    Haha, I can still hear it in his voice.

    Yeah, I know what you mean but it is seriously awesome to have a club for this, so thanks for creating it and I'm happy to be here.

    MrGame: And you are certainly are entitled to your opinion , but yes, there is an Avatar Club for that. - Sure, banners would be nice, thanks, just make sure we know who to credit.

    Eon: Welcome, I noticed there were a few fans when I put up my avatar, so I figured we'd get some use out of a Gravity Falls club.

    Okay, to Club Business:
    Is there anything else you guys want from the first post? Like the schedule for the upcoming episodes?

    Okay a vote for Schedules, good. . . I don't really want to lock up the topics though. I want the flow of conversation to be natural.

    Troubleshooting: You need to use image code around the link, and make sure it's from a public page.

    Schedule is up, just above the rules, and I just updated it (I'll add and remove episodes as appropriate), but still I need to see if I can figure out when Golf War plays on the Disney Channel for sure. Any other suggestion are welcome (more members are welcome too).

    To be honest, the Golf War trailer looked pretty stupid, I don't think anything serious is going to be going down in that episode.

    Okay guys, let's get a discussion topic going, how about most interesting creature that's appeared so far?

    Okay, so after extensive research spanning a couple of days, I'd like to briefly mention that there aren't that many "creatures" (strictly speaking) in the show that particularly interest me. That being said, how about that Gobblewonker? Although the Pines discovered that Old Man McGucket made a robot as a hoax for attention, in the same episode, another robot or the actual creature itself appeared, leaving us to wonder, "Where did McGucket get the idea?" Be it fact or fiction, the extent of how powerful and what it's actual habits are (if it exists in the continuity) have vexed me since I watched that episode.

    Good point on the Gobblewonker, McGucket had to have gotten the idea somewhere, but since there are lakes all over the world that supposedly have monsters, it wouldn't have indicated it was local without the second monster.

    Just watched 'Golf War'
        Spoiler:- Not quite as bad as I thought it would be:


    Also, I'm updating the schedule.

    I have been wondering that, too. If they're friends now(or at least getting there) or the next time she shows up it'll be back to the way it was between them. I liked the episode, though. Much better than I expected, to be completely honest.

    Updated the schedule. . . Looks like the next episodes aren't due until September. Lots of time to speculate folks. . . Anyone have a puzzle for us?

    Favorite episode: Tourist Trapped
    Why I like Gravity Falls: I was introduced this when the legend of the gobble wonker first came out. I fell in love with it ever since, I love the animation, the comedy, and the mystery. I had an unhealthy obsession with this show until it went on hiatus xD. This show is the savior of Disney.
