Forever and Always - Alternate Ending
Unable to handle the darkness that clouded her mind for a second longer, she popped all the pills in her mouth. She hesitated for a moment before swallowing. It was done.
“MABEL!”
Mabel whipped around to see Stan run up to her. Stan stared at the empty pill bottles in her hand and panicked. “Mabel…what did you do? What did you do?”
Mabel put her hand over her mouth. It was like Stan broke her out of a trance she was in. What had she done? She was going to die.
She was going to die.
“Gr…Grunkle Stan…”
“Mabel…”
“Grunkle Stan…help me…”
Stan stared at her with his mouth agape unsure what to do. There was no way he would get Mabel to a hospital in time. There was no way to save her.
“Grunkle Stan…Daddy…” Mabel tried to run into his arms but ended up stumbling. Stan caught her and brought her into a hug. She was already feeling sleepy. She was slipping away. “Daddy, h

Forever and Always - 14. Best Gift Ever
    “Mabel, are you sure we should be doing this?” Dipper whispered as he and Mabel snuck down the hallway.
    “Of course I’m sure! This is, like, a staple of parenthood!” Mabel whispered back.
    It was around 6 am on Christmas morning. Mabel had woken up Dipper so they could wake their beloved adoptive fathers. She was overjoyed to finally be experiencing her first real Christmas with her forever family. Dipper was just as thrilled to see his sister so happy after so much heartbreak (and admittedly, he was pretty giddy about Christmas too).
    “I just hope Stan and Ford don’t get mad at us for waking them so early,” Dipper whispered as he turned his head towards his sister. Not watching where he was going he walked right into his Grunkle Stan.
    “What on Earth are you kids doing?” Stan said in an exaggerated angry voice.

Forever and Always - 13. Still Here
    Stan Pines was officially going to be a father. He wanted it more than anything in the world, but that didn’t mean he would be good at it. Tonight, he had proven deep down in his soul, he truly was the son of Filbrick Pines. He couldn’t erase that part of him no matter how hard he tried. He had gotten angry and lost control, and it almost cost him his child.
    He slumped against the fireplace staring down at Mabel’s suicide note. It stiffened as Mabel’s tears dried, but it was soon dampened anew with Stan’s own tears.
    He read the portion addressed to him over and over again. The line that got him the most was where Mabel said he was the bravest person she knew and what a great father he was. Stan felt he had neither been brave or a good father. He allowed words to slip out that he could never take back, and it sent Mabel to such a dark place that she could see no light. Even in her final

Forever and Always - 12. More Than a Word
    Between the two brothers, Stan had always been the more excitable, or “spirited” as his mother called it. Ford got excited about things sure, but he was always the more reserved one. He would keep his joy and excitement to himself and only truly express himself when isolated or with the few people he trusted.
    This time was different, though. Ford Pines was officially going to be a father: something he never knew before he was blessed with two children he loved so dearly. He had a family, a real family. The joy was too much for him and before he even consulted Stan about whether or not to wake the kids, his kids, he was sprinting up the stairs not even noticing his brother wasn’t following him.
    “DIPPER! MABEL! WAKE UP!” Ford said in a tone that must have been so boisterous and unlike him that it made the children worry.
    So when Dipper and Mabel opened thei

Forever and Always - 11. Take Care of Them
Without a word, Stan and Ford went downstairs and sat at the living room coffee table with Janice. There were no more words they could say. They figured the manliest thing would be to just sit and accept whatever Janice had planned for them.
Janice cleared her throat and spoke, "I have decided to leave Mabel and Ma...Dipper...with you.”
"WHAT?" Stan and Ford said at the same time.
"I never really wanted kids. I know I’m not the motherly type. But I loved being an auntie.” Janice’s eyes travelled to the picture of the kids’ parents they hung up on the wall. She stared wistfully at the twins’ mother. “She looked so much like Mabel when she was a little girl. We were so close back then. She loved all the clothes and accessories I got her. We had so much fun dressing up together. She called us ‘dress-up buddies.’ But then, she met your nephew, and I made my disapproval of him quite clear. We didn’t speak much after that.”

Forever and Always - 10. Afraid
Just as Ford and Dipper were going to find Stan to explain things, they heard frantic footsteps coming down the stairs.
Stan came down looking like he’s seen a ghost. He grabbed Ford’s shoulders and said in a panicked voice, “We have to find Mabel. Now.”
“What do you mean? Isn’t she upstairs?”
Stan didn’t answer. Every second counted so he had no time to explain. He shoved Mabel’s suicide note into Ford’s hand and ran out the door.
On his way out, Stan collided with Janice, who was still on the porch talking on the phone.
"Get out of my way!” Stan said as he pushed past the woman with zero regards to any common decency. Janice had lost that right when she drove him to yell at his baby.
"Ugh, rude!” Janice snapped.
Dipper watched his uncle’s face as he read the letter. Ford’s facial expression quickly matched Stan’s worried one.
“Grunkle Ford?”

Forever and Always - 9. Lies That Tear Us Apart
The two men stared in shock at their niece and nephew. They were certain they had misheard. There was no way…
“You want to go with her?” Stan asked incredulously.
“Yeah…” Dipper said in a small voice. “Yeah, we do.”
Stan continued to stare at the twins expecting them to laugh and say they were just kidding. But they were dead serious.
“But…” Ford was still trying to compute what they were saying. “But why?”
Dipper tried reciting the talking points they had practiced. They weren’t even that strong to begin with, but Dipper still managed to make it sound feebler. “We just think that…Portland…good economic area…and, you know…with her resources…”
Stan glanced over at all the shopping bags of goods Janice bought for them. “Oh, I get it, you’d rather live in a fancy house with Miss Prim and Proper than in a dumpy old shack with us, right?”

Forever and Always - 8. How Do We Tell Them?
    The next morning, the four Pines sat at the breakfast table in miserable silence. There was so much both sides wanted to say, so much they needed to say, but words failed them. Stan and Ford looked at each other. While they were spending the better part of the night taking turns checking on Mabel, they had been thinking about if they should tell the kids about Janice’s threats to prepare them for the worst. They wanted so desperately to shield them and protect them from the truth, but the truth was there was a real possibility that they could be taken away.
    “Kids,” Stan spoke up, bringing Dipper and Mabel out of their own trance. “There’s something Ford and I gotta talk to you guys about.”
    “There’s something Mabel and I need to tell you too,” Dipper said.
    The four of them were now giving each other their full attention, but just as

Forever and Always - 7. Last Game Night
The kids went back to bed, filled with dread of the consequences of their heartbreaking decision. Dipper tried to comfort his sister by allowing her to sleep in his bed beside him. She didn’t want to sleep in her own bed tonight anyways.
Exactly one year ago, Mabel was laying in her bed, and an intruder snuck into her room and tried to rape her. He had threatened to kill Stan if Mabel refused him, and for that reason, Mabel was going to let herself be raped to protect him. Now, a year later, she was laying in her bed, once more feeling scared and helpless, once more accepting torture to save someone she loved, once more fearing what was coming next. At least she was able to take some small comfort in the fact that she was not suffering alone this time.
Stan and Ford offered to sleep with her to calm her nerves. She insisted she would be fine without them since Dipper would be in the room with her. But if she was honest with herself, she wanted nothing more than to have her entire

Forever and Always - 6. Sacrifice
The young twins were nearly brought to tears at the sight of their uncles, their adoptive fathers, looking so lost and defeated as they were faced with the prospect of their family being torn apart.
Unable to watch anymore, Dipper grabbed his sister’s arm. “Come on, Mabel. Let’s go back to our room.”
Mabel wordlessly allowed Dipper to lead her back into their bedroom. She sat down on her bed and simply stared at the floor with an expression of shock and despair.
But Dipper saw something else in her eyes, something they had spent the past year trying to eradicate from her mind. Dipper sat down next to his sister and put his arm around her shoulder. He said in the softest of tones, “Mabel…”
Mabel looked up at him. Her beautiful brown eyes were filled with guilt. He already knew what she needed to hear. He’s said it many times this past year, and he’ll say it as many times as he has to: “It’s not your fault.”

Forever and Always - 5. Ultimatum
“IF YOU THINK YOU CAN WALK IN HERE AND TAKE OUR KIDS FROM US, YOU’RE DREAMING!” Stan screamed.
“THEY’RE NOT ‘YOUR KIDS,’” Janice fired back. “AND IF I HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT, THEY NEVER WILL BE!”
“HOW DARE YOU?” Ford bellowed. “YOU CLAIM TO WANT WHAT’S BEST FOR THESE KIDS, BUT NOW YOU WANT TO TEAR THEIR LIVES APART ONCE MORE? THESE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH!”
“YOU THINK STAYING WITH YOU WILL HELP THEIR MENTAL WELLBEING? I SAW THEM TONIGHT WHEN THE FIRE BROKE OUT AT THE RESTAURANT! THEY FREAKED OUT OVER A SMALL KITCHEN FIRE! MABEL WAS IN HYSTERICS AND MADE A HUGE SCENE IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE RESTAURANT! IT WAS MORTIFYING!”
“OH, I’M SORRY IF YOU WERE EMBARRASSED!” Stan said sarcastically. “HOW INCONSIDERATE OF MABEL TO HAVE A PANIC ATTACK WHEN IT’S INCONVENIENT FOR YOU! ESPECIALLY AFTER YOU BROUGHT ATTENTION TO THE MOST HOR

Forever and Always - 4. Burning
Usually, when the Pines family went out to dinner, their table was filled with laughter and lively conversation. But Janice being here has thrown off their equilibrium, leaving them all sitting in awkward silence.
Dipper, Stan, and Ford were keeping an eye on Mabel. So far, she has been a little more reserved than usual but didn’t seem terribly distressed as they feared she would be today.
Janice had no desire to make small talk. She cut right to the point. "So, Mason, Mabel, I must ask, I know you claim to be ‘happy’ here, but do you honestly believe you’re safe here?"
Dipper answered first and to his family's surprise, he replied with a bit of an attitude. "First off, Graunty Janice, if you don't want us to call you Graunty, I think you should know I go by Dipper." Dipper pulled his bangs back to show his odd birthmark proudly. "Second of all, we are safe because Stan and Ford always protect us."

Forever and Always - 3. Vulnerable
Janice’s pink Cadillac was easily recognizable in a town where most residents drive a rusty pickup truck. A woman who was dressed more appropriately for a posh tea party than visiting a cabin in the middle of the woods. She took off her expensive sunglasses and looked at the Shack in disapproval. “Ugh, this can’t be it.”
Dipper and Mabel came outside to confirm they weren’t imagining seeing their Great-Aunt Janice. But sure enough, it was indeed…
“Great-Aunt Janice?” Dipper asked.
Janice looked at the twins with a mixture of delight and disappointment: delighted to see her late niece’s children but disappointed that this place is where they’re living.
“Kids!” Janice opened her arms expecting them to bound over to and hug her like they did when they were little. Back at the age where babies had no problem expressing affection to those they didn’t know very well.

“But we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.”
Ford smiled at his niece’s jolly Christmas tune. It was a song from the musical Mame about needing Christmas early due to misfortunes in the protagonist’s life. It seemed like the appropriate song since they had only just taken down their Halloween decorations before Mabel enlisted their help in covering the Shack with as much holiday cheer as possible.
“Come on guys, let’s make this old shack shine!” she said jovially as she began stringing popcorn over the mantel. Typically, popcorn is a decoration reserved for the Christmas tree, but with Mabel no area of the house was safe from her decorating. Unfortunately, none of the popcorn was safe from Waddles’ hungry mouth as Mabel soon found out, but she took it in stride.

Forever and Always - 1. Anniversary Effect
A terrified scream snapped Dipper out of his sleep. He recognized the scream as his sister, since he, unfortunately, had heard it many times during the night this past year. He looked over to see Mabel hugging her knees and hyperventilating. Dipper immediately went over to her and put his arms around her. “Mabel, shh, shh, it’s okay.”
They heard rapid footsteps coming up the stairs. The door opened, and their great uncles appeared. They looked in sadly on their niece in the middle of a panic attack. They simply sat on either side of Mabel and each took one of her hands.
“Deep breaths, Mabel,” said Ford. “Remember the techniques.”
“It was just a nightmare, sweetie,” Stan soothed. “Just a nightmare. You’re safe. We’re here.”
Nearly one year ago, Mabel was nearly raped and murdered by a boy named Brad Edwards. Since then, she’s been trying to recover emotionally from the trauma, including going to therapy

Learning the Hard Way - 2. Never Forgive
Jack and Maddie Fenton loved to hunt ghosts. There were only a couple things in their lives more important to them than their love of ghost-hunting, and one of them was lying on the ground, hurt and not moving.
“D-Danny?” Maddie said in shock and horror.
“Danny?” The destabilizer fell from Jack’s hands. The expensive equipment that he was so prideful of was dropped like a useless piece of trash.
“Danny!” Maddie knelt by her son’s side and held his head. The green ectoplasm that had been pouring out of the ghost boy when they hit him had turned into red blood as he transformed back into their human child. “Danny? Danny, open your eyes!”
But the child didn’t respond to Maddie. She put two fingers on her son’s neck. “I’ve got a pulse. It’s…it’s weak, though. Jack, we have to help him.”
Jack stared at his wife and son with his mouth agape. For once, Jack Fenton didn’t spring in

I'm working on a collab with marehami on a Gravity Falls fanfic called Rescue Me. So if you're dying for Pines family feels, check it out. 
Another one based on my fic. This one is from To Be Me Again. This is so awesome! They look so peaceful. They deserve rest after everything they've been through.

Bottomless Pit Pg9
This is my comic submission to Alex Hirsch in his Twitter request for fanart ("bonus points for comics" he said). 
This is based off of the fanfic Bottomless Pit, written by Keleficent. I recommend reading it! One of my faves! Guilty Ford! Feels!
www.fanfiction.net/s/12220058/…

I spent like 8-10 straight hours organizing the whole fic into a comic script, sketching out this single page and inking it. Then it took me another 7 hours just to color it! (so sleepy...) A hell of a lot of effort was put into this, especially the since I'm not always great with colors, and I nearly gave myself an anxiety attack yesterday about it. So...if Alex doesn't give it a 'Like'...I'm going to be very sad. Fluttershy (sad) plz  Sad Lily 

I don't know yet if I'm going to do more pages of this or not. I mean, I wrote the WHOLE thing into a comic script, which would be fifteen pages, and I'd really hate for all that effort to go to waste. But I have a million other things I need to do! And comics take me SO LONG!! Idk if I'm doing the whole process wrong or if I'm just super slow but...I feel like I'd do a lot more comics in my life if they were faster to make. 
I am the co-creator of the Adoption AU with marehami. You can find the stories from that AU: 

Rescue Me
Never Let You Go
