A Boy Named Dipper Pines is a Gravity Falls fanfic. But warning, I changed a story a bit and it's going to be full of Pinecest fluff and smut. So, if you want to read it, then go. If you don't want to, then go. If you don't want spoilers, then you better leave because there might be some portions in this story which is a little spoiler-y, so, proceed at your own risk. There might be some portions that are inspired from other non-related fanfictions and copyrighted media, so, this is under fair use! All rights go to its respectful owners.
The reason why I changed the story is that I'm lacking of ideas, and probably, this is all I got in the moment, so, enjoy! BTW, the story is all in Dipper's POV (except for Chapter 7, which is set in narration), and this is set in Piedmont, so, don't get confused.

Chapter 1: Love StoryEdit
I was in the living room, reading a book in our couch with a soda in the coffee table. My parents are out for some conference and I'm stuck down here guarding the house from any intruders. As soon as I'm done with my book, I felt sleepy. So, I locked the doors and windows, turned off the lights, went upstairs and I entered our room. As I enter the room, my eyes drifted into Mabel. She is already asleep. She sleeps like an angel at night. An angel who is not to be disturbed in their slumber. I lied to bed, and I can't sleep as I kept thinking about Mabel. I swear that my nerves tell me that I should get some sleep and my adrenaline suddenly just rushed when I saw Mabel in her sleep.
I have a secret. A secret that no one, not even Mabel or my parents know. I have a weird feeling inside my heart whenever I'm with Mabel. Back in Gravity Falls, whenever me and Mabel have adventures together, I feel a swarm of butterflies flying around my heart. Whenever I save Mabel from anyone who tries to hurt her, I feel like Prince Charming saving a damsel in distress. I can't tell her what I felt or she'll flip. I don't know what to do with myself whenever I'm around her.
So, I got up and I went to her bed. Her snores are just so quiet and sweet. I can't help myself. I stared at her face. Her lips are a bit open. I feel so hypnotized and tempted to kiss her. So, I pursed my lips, and I got closer to her. As I get closer to her, my body can't stop shaking. My lips are about to approach hers when suddenly, she closed hip lips and she opened her eyes. She blushed.
"D-Dipper?" she said. Then suddenly, she kissed me on the lips. It was a very passionate kiss, so I kisse dher back, and I enjoyed it. I even let my hand touch her breasts. She kept moaning as my hands discover her body and her hands discovering mine, and guess what, I like it when she moans so hard. I gives me a boner, and it tempts me to fuck her so hard. We were enjoying our little make-out session when suddenly...
"OH. MY. FRICKING GOD! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?" my mother shouted.
"MOM!" we both shouted. "What are you doing here? Are you supposed to be in your little conference?" I asked her.
"Well, the conference got cancelled because the host has a family emergency, so we came home early. As soon as I kept hearing moans coming somewhere in this house, we checked your room, only to find you two making out." she said.
"Mom, we can explain!" Mabel said.
"I don't wanna talk about this anymore. Get to bed right now or I'll call your father. We'll talk about this in the morning." mom said, as she closes the door.
"W-what have I done?" I said to Mabel.
"Dipper?" Mabel said.
"What's wrong with me? What did I just did earlier?" I panicked.
"DIPPER!" she shouted at me.
"I'm...I'm a sick person!" I said, crying, in front of her.
"Hey, what's that on your cheek?" Mabel asked me.
"My cheek?" I asked her.
"Yeah, right there." She answered.
"Where?" I asked her. Then suddenly she kisses me on the cheek. I was shocked, and I stared at her beautiful glare. Then, I blushed and I rushed myself to bed. I pulled my sheets and I covered myself.
"At least you "found" what you're looking for right?" Mabel joked.
"Y'know, there's this thing called "incest". Ever heard of it?" She asked me.
"I KNOW WHAT INCEST IS! Don't rub it in." I shouted at her.
"I'm sorry! Okay. I don't know what I was thinking?" I said to her "I guess I was...desperate...I dunno..."
"Because you never had a girlfriend? And your first kiss was a reverse-CPR with a guy?"
"DON'T. remind. me."
"I'm your sister, Dipper. But for the record: I love you. I love you as a best friend, as a sibling, as a twin. I hope that type of love counts."
"I hate you..." I said while I'm crying in my pillows.
"You're crying again, aren't you?" she asked.
"You're... too understanding...and forgiving... Thank...you. And I hate you." I said to her.
"I love you too." she said to me, making me fall asleep.
Chapter 2: Everything Has ChangedEdit
Today is the worst day of my life. My parents have decided to separate me and Mabel. They have decided Mabel to move to our grandma's place in Surprise, Arizona and me to stay here in Piedmont. We don't know how long we are separated, but for the moment, it's up until we meet someone new. It's so unfair. I want to be with Mabel forever and they can't just separate us like that. Oh well, they're parents. We have no total control over them. God! Why does life have to be like this?
Today is our last day together. We are both in our rooms, as we are grounded for the day. I am reading one of my boring books and Mabel is reading a latest issue of her teen magazine. I don't want Mabel to forget about me. It's time to tell her my secret.
"Hey Mabel." I said.
"Yeah?" she asked.
"How...well...Do you think..." I asked nervously.
"Yeah?" she asked me again.
"Do you think we'll always be like this?"
"What'chu talkin' about, bro bro?"
"I mean, its always fun being with you. We play, we go on adventures, we do stupid stuff sometimes. But...but will it last forever?" I said to her. "And do I want it to last forever?" I asked her.
"Huh?" she asked curiously.
"Eventually, you'll have a family of your own. The same for me. Y'know, move on, to what we did last night. Marriage, job, kids, all of that stuff."
"Grown up stuff, yeah. So what's the problem there?"
"'Cuz I think...when tomorrow comes, we won't be this close anymore. I like this life with you. But, I don't know if I wan---" I said until Mabel placed her finger in my lips and interrupted me.
"Shhh." she said sweetly. "You worry too much, Dipper." she said. "Think about it. We both have friends and we spend time with them. We even fall in love to the people we like. Heck, relationships are huge commitments. Does that mean we can't be close to each other anymore? Of course, we'll always be together, we're twins!" she said to me, making me feel emotional, and having an awkward silence in our room. "Why are you so worried anyway?" she asked me, until I hugged her tight.
"This is more awkward than our awkward sibling hug." she said, feeling so awkward.
"I have friends all over the place, But you're the only best friend I've got." I said while I'm sobbing in her shoulders. I can feel that there are tears coming out of her eyes right now.
"I'm nothing without you." I continued.
"Silly." she said to me. And that was our last conversation together.
The day has come. The day Mabel separates from me. I watched her leave from our window. My parents are outside and the taxi cab is loading Mabel's bags in the trunk. As Mabel got inside the cab and my dad closed the door, I feel tears coming out of my eyes, and as the car left, I ran to bed and I cried onto my pillows. My only best friend is gone and I have nothing. I screamed onto my pillow and I kept crying and crying. I'm alone now.
Chapter 3: Teardrops On My GuitarEdit
June 20, 2016, the first day of summer. I was just sitting in a park bench, watching the kids play and the teenagers displaying affection in public. But watching them do that reminds me of somebody. Somebody that I lost a few years back.
I stood up from the bench and I find myself walking out of the park and around the sidewalks of my neighborhood. I have my grey shoes on, and honestly, I've been wearing the same pair of shoes for these past few years and I've noticed that it's about a few months away before it breaks. Today I just wore my orange shirt, because I don't feel like wearing my blue vest at the moment. My messy brown hair was a bit longer and even more messier than it was before, but was still similar enough to the point where everyone identified me by it.
My notable appearance and my gift for academic excellence. Those were just two of the things that I was known for. A third would be my "hopeless romantic" love status, which never changes. I couldn’t help but enjoy being romantically lonely and spending time with my geek friends.
But, there is one last thing that I was known for, even if it wasn’t as spotlighted as I thought it would be. I'm well known for comforting one girl's heart. I'm known for messing up our love. I'm known to be a disgrace to my family, but I'm not known for regretting my own decisions.
I walk down the sidewalks of Piedmont, my hands are in the pockets of my grey shorts, and feeling as lonely as I am. All of the kids in our neighborhood are enjoying their three months off of school and adults walking around as well. It reminded me of my summer's past in Gravity Falls, Oregon. Solving mysteries, fighting evil creatures, defeating a one-eyed Dorito chip named Bill Cipher. Man, those are memories.
I passed by two twin siblings playing around in a yard. It reminded me of what's missing in my life right now. I let out a sigh, placing my hands deeper in my pockets and walked away. I headed into the house of my closest friend, Finn Davidson, and I don't have any idea why I want to. It was as if my feet were doing the walking for me.
When I got to Finn's house, I walked up to the front door. I paused for a moment, before knocking on the door. Another few moments passed before the door opened. It was his sister Amethyst on the other side.
"Well, hi Dipper! What brings you here?" she asked happily.
"Hey Amethyst, I don't know really. I was walking around the neighborhood and... I guess I'm here to see your brother." I replied.
Amethyst’s smile waivered a bit, but strengthened as she said, “Well come on in Dipper! Finn is out back with his dog. I think that thing’s doghouse needed to be rebuilt or some of the planks needed to be replaced or something. Anyway, come on and have some lemonade with us. Rigby is here.”
She entered the house, and as I follow her, I felt that by now familiar knot twist its way into the pit of my stomach. I saw my friend Rigby Hadid at school, but he was a grade below him and we didn’t get to talk much outside of lunch. And usually the conversation never drifted to how she was doing.
I followed Amethyst to the living room. A stream of beautiful guitar music flowed in the halls. Rigby was sitting on a hanging chair playing a guitar. He stopped playing to look at me. "Well, hey there Dipper! What brings you here? I figured you'd be locked up reading one of your mystery books all day and all night."
A laugh escaped my nerves. “Very funny Rigby. When you are as curious as I am, you can make more out of less time.”
Amethyst sat down beside Rigby. giving him a quick kiss on his cheek before looking back to me and saying, “Finn should be finished in a little while. Get yourself something to drink and sit with us. Rigby is playing a cover of Justin Bieber's new song "Love Yourself" on his guitar.”
The young couple returned their attention to each other, leaving me standing there, my mind blanking out on me for a moment. I walked into the kitchen and got myself half a glass of lemonade. I took a sip from it, but I sighed again, tired of trying to distract myself. I glanced at Rigby and Amethyst again, before gently slamming the counter with my fist. Leaving the kitchen behind, I went back to the living room and asked, “Hey Rigby, is there any way I could talk to you about something?”
Rigby paused the video game, already aware of what I was going to say. Rigby looked to Amethyst for a moment, then back to me and said, “Dude, she’s alright. She’s been spending most of her time being a part of this new Netflix series called "The Cool Kids of Arizona". She got good grades on her report card, and she’s been all smiles lately…which is always a good thing with Mabel.”
He said her name. There was that name again. Mabel. My best friend, my sibling, my twin, and most of all, my lover.
“Ha! Ha! Ha! Very funny Rigby,” I said again. I felt the back of my neck burning. I knew Mabel had some silliness, that everyone used to make fun of them, but as my heart had opened to her, I loved everything about her, so whenever anyone made fun of her, it burned me up inside. “Thanks for telling me nothing that I don’t already know,” I added.
Rigby let out a sigh, looking to Amethyst, almost as if he was pleading with her for an answer. Amethyst patted Rigby on the shoulder and looked at me saying, “Dipper, if you’re really worried about Mabel, then why don’t you just talk to her yourself? The cast of "The Cool Kids of Arizona" is making a special appearance at the Piedmont Comic-Con tonight.”
I felt frozen where I stood, a gasp of breath escaping my nerves before I tensed up in this way. I hated it whenever somebody left me with that ultimatum. Nobody understood. I had messed up terribly. I kissed her and I almost began to fuck her. I had broken her heart and at the same time, I've given up on my own.
“You don’t understand,” I said, finally loosening up, bending over slightly, my arms hanging and my neck drooping in defeat. “I…I…I can never talk to her again. The last time, was the last time.”
"But why Dipper?" Amethyst asked, "Casn' you just say you're sorry?"
Rigby shook his head, whispering, “Shh,” into Amethyst’s ear, “It was really bad when it happened. You remember Dipper brushing her off before. This was flat out rejection. It’s not what you think. I’ve…I’ve never seen Mabel so upset. To this day I’ve never seen her get as sad and cry as much as she does about Dipper. It was so bad she begged our parents to let her go to school with Kim, Wirt, and Marco just so she wouldn’t have to deal with seeing him everyday.”
Amethyst's eyes widened. She remembered when she recieved the news that Mabel transferred to Kim Rinna’s school in Surprise, AZ, right before she, Finn, and Dipper entered tenth grade. Finn had never explained to Amethyst why, only that it had a lot to do with Dipper. Never before had Amethyst understood just how bad the fight was.
“Thanks for reminding us Rigby,” I whispered.
Rigby and Amethyst let out a gasp, forgetting how good my hearing was. “Sorry Dipper,” Rigby said, “But…four years is a long time. I don’t think Mabel’s dwelled on it nearly as long as you have.”
Glancing away from them, looking as low down as I possibly could, I felt my heart skip a beat. “That’s probably because she’s forgotten about me,” I whispered.
At that moment, the back door opened and closed, and Finn walked into the kitchen. He paused, happy to see me, but shocked when he saw me standing there, looking sadder than ever, and Rigby and Amethyst looking on, looking equally as upset. It didn’t take Finn long to figure out what was wrong.
“Hey Dipper, is everything okay?” Finn asked, walking up to me.
I glanced at Finn, frowning and almost glaring at me. “Does it look like everything’s okay Finn or are you just blinded from the sunlight?”
Placing his hand on my shoulder, He smiled sympathetically, shook his head and replied, “Standard question Dipper…sorry.” my angry glare gave way to that same sad face as I lowered my eyes again. Finn looked to Rigby and Amethyst and asked, “I guess we were talking about her again weren’t we?"
“Hardly!” I shouted suddenly, throwing my hands into the air. “All Rigby ever tells me is how she’s becoming famous, or helping with Kim's homework, before teasing her, openly mocking the fact that she can be a bit rough with people. Nobody ever tells me anything other than, ‘She’s okay!’” I shouted again.
He looked to me, grabbing one of my arms to get my attention before asking, “Then what do you want to know about her Dipper?”
I let out another sigh, closing my eyes and shaking my head. “I guess I just want to know how badly she hates me still,” I answered, “It’s bad enough that I never got to apologize for being so mean to her. It’s even worse that I’ve realized exactly how I really felt all along, and it’s too late to change anything.”
Nobody said anything at first. Finally, Amethyst stood up and walked over to me and Finn. Taking my hands in her own, she smiled and said, “It can’t be too late Dipper. You’re both still around aren’t you? Like Rigby said, two years is a long time. You should go tell her how you feel. If she really loved you, she certainly hasn’t forgotten about you. Yeah, you made her cry, and you might have broken her heart, but if there’s anyone who can put it back together again, it’s you.”
I was silent for a few moments, gazing at Amethyst, thinking about what she said. I closed my eyes, pulling away from her and taking a few steps towards the door. I paused, and looked back to MY friends before saying, “Thank you Rigby, Finn, and especially you Amethyst. I just…I hope you’re right.” I looked at Rigby and asked, “Will Mabel be at the convention center then?”
Everybody smiled, happy to see me finally ready to make things right. Rigby nodded and with a wave he replied, “Yep, you better hurry though. The convention will be over in half an hour! Good luck dude!”
“Everything will be just fine!” Amethyst said, waving goodbye.
I was one step through the door, but I turned back to smile at them. Though my smile was shaky, I tried my best to let everyone know I'm alright. I nodded and said, “Thanks again…bye guys.”
I left after this. Before I completely left the house, I heard Finn let out a soft chuckle and said, “Imagine that. At first we thought incest is a bad thing, but what we don't know that it can be a good thing for a change. Let’s just hope that Dipper gets his chance.”
After I heard his speech, I left the house and ran. As I run towards the convention center, I felt tears filling my eyes. In my heart I knew that Mabel would most likely reject me, break my heart the same way I broke hers. I knew it would be no less than what I deserved, but it was the last thing I wanted to happen. If Mabel still loves me, we would finally have our chance. If she had let me go, I would have no choice but to accept the consequences of my actions.
Chapter 4: FearlessEdit
I made it into to the convention center. I walked along the halls and I entered the third hall, scanning to find the cast of "The Cool Kids of Arizona" I finally spotted them, and there on the center of the CKOA panel, I saw her.
At last, I saw her.
"Well, being a part of The Cool Kids of Arizona made all of my dreams come true. When I was like 12 years old, I used to be called the silliest person alive, but now that I'm part of a TV show, I'm finally becoming somebody." she answered to one of her fans.
I got as close to her as I could without leaving the safety of her beloved fans. I hid behind a post, gazing at her. She was so close and yet so far. Her brown hair had gotten a little longer over time, falling to just below her shoulder blades, but it was still as silky and soft as always, and had gotten even more so as she grew up.
She wore black jean pants, a white blouse and high-heel shoes. She had a pair of sunglasses hanging on her blouse, and she was wearing a very expensive ring on her finger. I never seen Mabel wear a ring on her finger, but that made me so nervous.
The girl I loved with all of my heart was so close, but so far.
As I kept scooching over the audience, I made it backstage. Luckily, no one saw me coming. Not even Mabel's bodyguards. Wait, Mabel has bodyguards. What the hell is going on? As I walked backstage, I saw a dressing room that says "Mabel Pines", so I entered inside and I looked around her dressing room. All I could find in there are dresses, make-up and some of her things. Then, on her make-up table, I saw her phone and her scrapbook. I gotta say, she really loves making scrapbooks. I opened her scrapbook and it's full of pictures of her life in Surprise and there are also pictures of her and a very handsome guy. This is really suspicious, and I'm really nervous about what's happening. Then, as I flip the pages of her latest scrapbook, her phone rang. She's has a new message from a guy named John Edward Knowles. I'm really nervous of what's happening. I opened her phone and his text message says "want me to pick u up after comic con. just text me okay. luv u mabes!"
I closed my eyes, feeling those tears behind my eye lids. I placed her phone and her scrapbook back in the table and I slid to the ground, banging my head against the wall as he cringed, trying to block out the memories of the day I really messed up. Why I couldn’t have simply brushed her off like always, I don't know. I remembered being a weird high school freshman, wanting nothing more than to always be in Mabel's side forever. Wanting her to be safe from any guy who tries to hurt her feelings.
I never realized just how terrible being overprotective would feel.
I began to cry harder than I ever had before. I banged my head against the wall over and over, ignorant of the bruise I was making on my forehead, and the trickle of blood that seeped from the torn skin. Nothing was more painful than having to be without Mabel. It was all my fault. If I was sad, angry, and hurting because of all of it, I was the only one I could blame. And now that he has a boyfriend, I think that I can't forgive myself for the huge mess I've made.
“You’re so stupid Dipper,” he muttered, “She was the only one who was always there for you. The things she said when you were little were stupid yes. Like how she said she wanted me to quit worrying about us. That was stupid yes, but we were kids! I know now that she just wanted us to have a great life in separate ways. She didn’t want me to give up what made me happy. If I had stopped being so stupid and was nicer to her…she wouldn’t have felt the need to say such things just to get my attention. I’m such a fool and an idiot. I can’t go out there. She won’t even let me say a word. I—I wouldn’t blame her. I broke her heart…”
I began to calm down. My love for Mabel melted any rage I directed at myself. I reached up to rub my head, realizing how badly my forehead now hurts. Pulling my hand back, I could see blood on my fingertips. “Perfect genius, now look what you’ve done,” I said with a sigh.
I reached into my pockets, looking for a napkin to wipe my forehead with, but what I've got is my scissors. Pulling it out, I looked at it and shook my head. Sighing, I said, “Great, what can I do with this, make myself bleed even more?”
"Oh, hey John!" I heard Mabel greet.
I peeked out from the peephole to look at Mabel. I can see Mabel planting a kiss on John's cheeks, and talking to him with her hands holding his, in a romantic way.
"Hey Mabel, I just went out of school a while ago and I texted you if you want me to pick you up, and you didn't answer so I just went here to pick you up."
"Aww! That's so sweet." she said, before she kisses him on the lips. What the actual fuck!
"You just wait in the car, I'll be there soon. I just need to talk to my producer for a minute." she said.
"Okay. See you soon!" John said as he planted another kiss on Mabel's cheek. As John and Mabel left, I let out a sigh, and I sank back to my seat behind the wall, feeling some relief that I had a bit more time to think. Still, I was discouraged and said, “It’s no use. She already moved on and she already met someone to love rather than me. She did exactly what she thought would make things right, and I let my lust ruin it all.”
I rubbed my head again, realizing just how much of a headache I had given himself, but still able to ignore it in favor of nursing my sick heart. “I love Mabel,” Dipper whispered, “But how can I tell her so?”
I looked down at my other hand, I just realized I still had my scissors in it. I glanced up at the make-up table beside me. Just as my feet silently guided me earlier, I felt my hands take control. My fingers, accustomed to dancing along the pages of my mystery books, began to curl around the handles of my scissors, making sure it was securely in my grasp as my knees bid me to rise.
I opened Mabel's scrapbook and I started ripping pages from it. As the pages of her scrapbook is on the ground, I started snipping the pages. Snipping and snipping, I allowed my hand to keep pushing on the scissors, ripping the pages into fine pieces. Once all the pages are torn, I heard someone turning the knob of the door, so I hid inside the closet. Once the door of Mabel's dressing room opens, I heard Mabel talking to somebody.
"So, are you still available next week? We're filming a reunion episode and I was hoping that you would come to the mansion and help us film it." someone said. It could be Mabel's producer.
"Sure thing. But, I was thinking of filming an episode about the wedding." Mabel said. Wait, what? Wedding? Mabel's getting married? To who?
"That's a great idea? That will help The Cool Kids Of Arizona to gain more ratings! This is going to be the most watched episode in Netflix history! The JoBel wedding, a Cool Kids of Arizona wedding special. That's an amazing idea. I just hope that John wouldn't mind us having lights and cameras around the church?" Mabel's producer said.
"Oh, I'm sure he wouldn't mind at all. Okay, well, I have to get my stuff ready. I'll be at the hotel soon. John's waiting outside." Mabel said.
"What are you planning to do tomorrow?" her producer asked.
"Tomorrow, me and Kim are planning to visit my parents and we just can't wait to tell them the big news!" she answered.
"Oh, I'm sure that they will be so proud of you!" her producer said, when suddenly, something rang. "Oh, dang it. I have an important meeting to attend tonight. I have to go. Have a nice evening Mrs. Pines!"
"You too! And save the "Mrs. Pines" for the wedding!" Mabel said, which made her producer laugh, as she hear her walked inside. I opened the closet a little bit and I saw her looking at the torn pages of her scrapbook, wondering who would do such a thing. Then, she looked at the closet. She must've wondered what's going on inside the closet. As she saw the closet, I quickly closed it from the inside. I can feel that she's approaching the handle of the closet, when suddenly, her phone rang. I can hear her walk away from the closet and started answering her phone. I can hear her talking to somebody on her phone.
"Hey babe!" I hear her said. "Oh! Yes. Yes, I'm on my way there. I just need to grab my purse." I hear her talking again. She is probably talking to that fucking bastard John. "Okay. Bye!" she said. Then, I she grabbed her purse and she walked away from the dressing room.
As soon as she is away, I went out of the closet and I stared at the torn scrapbook pages in the floor. What a mess I've made. I just hope she would not know that it was me who made this mess. Yet again, she's coming to our house soon. She's visiting our parents, and she's visiting me. I just hope that she would forgive me for what I did in the past. I just wish I can undo her wedding with John, but I can't. Because of that, I leaned against the wall, and I started crying again. It's going to all over between us soon.
Chapter 5: Wildest DreamsEdit
I was walking around a field. A field filled with flowers of assorted colors. As I walk around that field, I stopped and I saw Mabel, walking from a beam of light coming in front of me. I ran to her and I gave her a huge hug. As I hugged her even tighter, her body became sand and a wind took that pile of sand to a figure standing in front of an altar. The sand formed itself to become Mabel, and she looked at that figure and she held its hands. I ran to that altar and as I ran closer to her, the altar becomes farther and farther. As I ran and ran, I tripped and I heard a someone saying, "I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may now kiss the bride." I got up and I saw them kissing in front of me. Then, an choir appeared out of nowhere and they sang Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" and the two kissed passionately, having their moment together. Then, the figure looked at me while Mabel's eyes are closed. It's face looked like a Bart Baker as Justin Bieber. It looked at me in an evil way and it said "Bitch better have my money!" and it started laughing at me evilly. Then, I started kneeling infront of him and I screamed.
-END OF DREAM SEQUENCE-
AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!! I had another bad dream. I keep having it every night. Wait, why am I not in bed? Why am I on the floor? Why are there pieces of paper all over the place? Wait? Am I still in Mabel's dressing room? Did I just slept here all night? Did anyone noticed me? What time is it?
I checked the clock and it's 9:00am. Mabel's going to be home soon. I have to go. I slowly opened the door. Luckily, there is nobody around, so I looked for a nearest exit. I found a fire exit just a few blocks away, so I silently ran into it and I sneaked out. As soon as I'm out of the convention center, I ran back to my home. As I made it back to my home, I opened the door. "Hello?" I shouted. "Anybody home?" I guess no one's home. Good!
I went upstairs and I changed my clothes. As I went downstairs to grab something to eat, I heard the doorbell ring. I went to open the door, there was nobody. Must be a doorbell prank. Man, those are old school pranks. Then, as I closed the door, I found a letter in the doormat. I picked it up and I opened it. It was a letter from Mabel. It read:
I went to the house last night and you weren't there. I was really expecting you to be there last night. Anyways, I want you to know that I'm getting married soon! To my boyfriend John Edward Knowles. I told the news to mom and dad last night and they are thrilled. They are now with me to help in organizing the wedding with John's parents. They already met John and they're so happy for me and John. I hope you're happy for me and for what I've been through lately. And by that, I cordially invite you to our wedding and you are our photographer. I hope you understand me. I love you Dipper.
P.S. I knew you were the one who tore apart my wedding scrapbook, back at the convention center, and I can see why. Just move on already.
Oh shit! She knew about my deepest darkest secret. She knew that I'm in love with her and I didn't forget about her these past few years. Because of that, tears started to come out of my eyes I walked into the living room, I read the invitation and I started crying again. Mabel's getting married soon and I have nothing to do about it. Their parents, friends and relatives all agreed to their wedding and I'm the only one who is against it. I covered my face with my hands and I screamed. "SSHHIITTTTTT!"
I went to the bathroom and I looked at myself in the mirror. I'm such a huge mess. My hair is as messier as ever, my bruise is still there, there's a few blood stains in my shirt, and I smell so bad. How come I such be a weird person. I've wasted all of my chances to talk to her and now, she's getting married. As I washed my hands, I dried my hands on my shorts and I felt something inside one of my pockets. I still have my pair of scissors. The same pair of scissors that I used to tear down Mabel's memories. Now, I felt a certain urge to cut myself. I looked at my reflection from the scissors and I really want to cut myself. I aimed the scissors onto my wrist. I have no idea what's going on, I really want to cut myself, but my nerves just won't let me do it. As soon as my scissors are totally aimed at my wrist, I was shaking. I just want to end this life, but I can't. I kept shaking. Sweat is coming out of my skin in a rapid speed, and I'm having mixed emotions. Sooner, I let go of my scissors and I started crying again. I didn't leave any cut in my wrist. Why must life have to be so hard.
Chapter 6: Sweeter Than FictionEdit
August 1, 2016. Today is the day. The day that I will lose everything precious. Me and my parents are at the church way before everyone else did. We all prepared for the big day. I prepared my camera for the chuch photos, and I hear Mabel talking to Grunkle Stan, who came all the way from Gravity Falls for her wedding.
"Grunkle Stan, you're here!" Mabel says as she runs up and gives Grunkle Stan a hug.
"Of course I'm here. I wouldn't miss this for anything."
"Not even a billion bucks?"
"Well… I'd flip a coin."
Mabel elbows Stan playfully as she turns towards dad, who's trying not to cry as he sees her ready to tie the knot.
"Hi. Ready for your big day?"
"Oh, I'm super, duper ready!"
Mabel grins as she walks with mom and three of her co-stars for The Cool Kids of Arizona and her best friends, Kim Rinna, Margaret Singer, Beatrice Leakes and Heather de Moura, to get ready for the wedding. Soon, everyone would be showing up and the ceremony would begin. Let me tell you this really quickly. I met John during Mabel's wedding prenups, and I got to admit, he was not what I've dreamt back. He was kind, passionate, and funny. She doesn't see any reason why she shouldn't have answered yes. Here's what Mabel said on how John asked her out.
While she was filming the reunion episode of The Cool Kids of Arizona, John came to the set. "Hey." John said, offering a smile. "Howdy." Mabel replied with a smirk."I'm not a cowboy." Mabel laughed at John's joke. He sat down next to her and looked into her eyes. "So, want to go on a date? Or something?" "…yes. Yes I would."
-END OF FLASHBACK-
While I was preparing the camera for the wedding photos, I hear someone inside my room, it was John. He has two cans of Coca-Cola in his hands. It looked like he wanted to talk about something. "Hey Dipper! You free?" he greeted.
"Yeah, uh, hey John! Whats up?" I asked.
"I'm fine as always. Look, I want to talk to you about something, okay."
"What? Are you nervous about the wedding?" I asked while we sit down and open our cans of Coke.
"Actually, that's what I want to talk about. I'm not really nervous. I just want to talk to you because you're Mabel's brother and I hope you'll understand what I want to open up."
"What is it?"
"Actually, uh, I never really loved Mabel in the first place." he said silently. When I heard it, something felt better inside of me.
"Really, why?" I asked.
"Because, my dad is the executive producer of The Cool Kids of Arizona and he forced me to be in a relationship with Mabel so that the show's ratings will rise. You see, my dad has been an executive producer for so many prestigious TV series in his time and he is crazy insane for ratings. If one episode has very low ratings, he would cancel the entire series for no reason. And since everyone in the world loves The Cool Kids of Arizona, he wanted this wedding to be the most watched show in Netflix history." he explained.
"Oh, okay." I said to him, when a thought came into my head. "Wait, did you just say that this is airing on Netflix right now?" I asked him.
"Yeah! Didn't you see the cameras all around the church." he said.
"Yes I did, but what I'm saying is, this is airing live on Netflix." I asked again.
"Well, yeah. My dad had some negotiations with Netflix and they had an agreement to air the wedding live, since everyone has been waiting so long for this. This is the first time Netflix does this kind of shows."
"Okay. Well, who do you want to marry then?"
"Actually, I never told anyone about this but, there is one of the Cool Kids who I'm in love with."
"Who is it?"
"It's Kim Rinna. I'm in love with her since I first appeared in the series. You see, for this season, I'm one of their guests who frequently visit them throughout the series. Then on the next season which will premiere next year, I'm going to be one of them, which is weird because they're all girls and I'm the only guy to appear in the show frequently."
"Okay, so, why do you love her?"
"Because...because...." he said in a very nervous way. "Wait, stop right there. You don't have to be nervous man. Mabel's not here. I believe she is still fitting her wedding dress. Just cut straight to what are you saying." I said in a caring manner. I know that he might be a jerk for stealing my lady, but it looked like he needed me so much. He wanted to break up with her, but he's a bit scared of his father who forced him to be in a relationship with someone he doesn't like just for the sake of their show.
"Okay, so, here's the reason why I want Kim to be my girlfriend. See, for the record, Kim is not really from Arizona."
"Really?" I asked. Kim's been telling us that she's from Phoenix and the truth that she's not from Phoenix or any part of Arizona? What is she hiding?
"Yeah. She was born and raised in Oakland, California. Her parents are famous actors and actresses. When Oakland is starting to struggle with high crime, her parents didn't want the public to know that their daughter is raised in a city where there is crime, poverty and gangs. So, they decided to let Kim stay in her grandparents' place back in Phoenix, and they let the world know that she is born and raised in Phoenix, and not Oakland. When her grandparents died of cancer when she was like 8 years old, her parents moved in and they lived there forever."
"Okay, but that doesn't answer my question on how you fell in love with..." I said when he placed his finger on my mouth. "Wait, hold on, you didn't let me finish." he said.
"When I was a new student in high school, I had a slight crush on her when I first saw her as I entered the classroom. She was the most beautiful human being I've ever seen. After class, two bullies punched me in the face and left me bloody in the hallways with no one noticing. Kim came to me and gave me first aid. She even assisted me to the clinic. She didn't leave my side the whole period. After we went out of the clinic, we had a secret relationship. We never told anyone about our relationship because Kim is one of the popular girls and I'm just a regular old geek and if anyone found out that we're in a relationship, her popularity will go downhill and her douchebag boyfriend will beat me up so hard. So, we never told anyone about our relationship, not even today."
"Okay, then, why did your dad picked Mabel to be your bride?"
"Maybe this has something to do with that fight she and Kim had."
Chapter 7: MineEdit
NOTE: THIS IS A FLASHBACK, so don't get confused. Also, remember that one time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when the girls went to Amsterdam and then suddenly Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna had a fight? Well, this is likely inspired by that event. So, enjoy! =) Oh, and by the way, this is the only chapter in the fanfic which is set in my narration, but on the following chapters, it's back to Dipper's POV, I promise, so don't get confused.
At one time during an episode of The Cool Kids of Arizona, the girls went on a vacation to Copenhagen, Denmark, and while they're having a normal and civilized dinner, Mabel had an argument with the girls concerning.
"You know what Kim, I think that this is the right time we start talking about John." Mabel said. "Oh, god. Don't even get started." Kim said. "Wait, what about John?" Margaret asked. "You know that four of you girls have relationships already, and we're the only girls in this table who doesn't have a significant other yet. And, I don't want to be one of them." Mabel said. "What are you saying?" Margaret asked again. "I'm saying that John should be my bae right now and that bitch should stay away from him as soon as I'm alive." Mabel said, pointing to Kim.
"What? Why?" Heather asked.
"Why, because I have a huge-ass crush on him since I first saw him enter the house and I can feel that Kim might have some secret relationship with him, behind my back and she's not going to get away with that. Plus, Candy said that this is the only way for me to gorget about, you know who?"
"What have you done to him?" Kim asked, wondering what Mabel would had done to John.
"Calm down, bitch. I didn't DO anything to him. I'm saying that you should stay away from him or I'll do some crazy stuff to both of you."
"What drugs are you in right now?" Kim asked to Mabel.
"Hmm. I don't know? Maybe cannabis mixed with alcohol or maybe something worst." Mabel said, making everyone shocked. "Ha! Ha! Ha! I'm just fucking with you sluts. I'm not into any form of illegal drugs. That's gross."
"You better watch your language Mabel." Heather said.
"Excuse me, I'm not talking to you." Mabel said, referring to Heather, "Excuse me, don't talk about it" Mabel said to Kim. "Shame on you." Kim and Heather said together. "I'm not talking to you." Mabel said, pointing at Heather. "Shut your fucking mouth! I had enough of you!" Mabel added.
"You beast?" Heather said. "Yeah?" Mabel said as well. How dare you?" Heather added.
"How dare me?" Mabel asked in an angry manner.
"You came into my clean home and...." Heather said when Mabel interrupted her. "And I apologize in three years..." Mabel said when Heather interrupted her back. "Actually, you didn't. Actually, you didn't talk to us in a vulgar manner like that for years."
"I don't like you!" Mabel said, angry at Heather. "Guess what? I don't particularly like you either!" Heather talked back. "Good!" Mabel replied. "I can't find one damn thing to like about you right now at the moment." Heather added. "Good, I never found one thing to like about you...." Mabel replied. "I did nothing to you!" Heather said. "...from your hair, to your things and your attitude!" Mabel added.
"Mabel, don't talk like that." Candy tried to calm down Mabel.
"What is wrong with you?" Candy added.
"Candy, shut up. You should've said right from the beginning, in three years I've been miserable without my brother. I mean, if I have forgetten about Dipper already, and what he did to me, I would've been calm this whole time. Remember back when I first came into your ugly faces. You were in the sofa and you're like this." Mabel said, covering her mouth with a table napkin, imitating Candy's actions back in Phoenix. "I mean, what is that?" Mabel added.
"You never acted like this, Mabel." Candy responded. "You want me to help you forget about Dipper, even though you can't do it." Candy added. "You're trying to help me forget about Dipper, even though you're not acting like that." Mabel said. "Mabel, yes I have!" Candy answered. "She does try to help you, Mabel, she tries to help you a thousand times." Beatrice said, joining the argument. "She helps me more than you do." Mabel said, referring to Margaret, which made Candy so shocked. "Grenda would never act like this. Grenda would have my back like a real BFF!" Mabel added, which made Candy a bit disappointed. "You have been doing this to me for years." Mabel added.
"It's not okay to talk to your best friend or anyone like that." Kim said. "You don't understand the relationship between me and my best friend." Mabel said to Kim. "No, I don't, but it's not okay to talk to anyone like that, Mabel, it's just not okay. Your behavior is just not okay." Kim added.
"Really?" Mabel asked. "Yeah, it's not okay." Kim answered. "Won't you have a piece of bread. Maybe it will calm you down a little." Mabel talked back. "Shame on you! You're disgusting Mabel." Kim said.
"Oh, god, please." Candy said.
"Can I interfere one second." one of their friends, Meg Gunvalson said. "I understand your sensitivity because you've been trying to forget about your brother for three years. When John first stepped into the house and Mabel is starting to have hearts as eyes, Kim came to me. She said "Meg, can I tell you a secret that you can't tell Mabel or anyone?" Then, I said, "Sure, what is it.", and then...." Meg added when Mabel interrupted her. "Let's talk about that secret." Mabel said, which made Kim so furious.
"Excuse me? Did you just say "Let's talk about that secret"?" Kim said angrily. "Let's not talk about what you don't want to know!" Mabel said, that made every one so shocked and it made her shrug.
"You know what? Let me tell you something. Don't you ever touch...don't touch John..." Kim said. "Just saying...." Mabel said when she was interrupted by Kim. "Don't you ever..." Kim said when Mabel stood up too. "You know what now? For everything wanting to know? You better watch what you talk about me or everybody will know!" Mabel shouted at Kim. "Never come near my John." Kim said clearly to Mabel. "Everybody will know..." Mabel said when Kim threw her champagne to Mabel. "YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? DON'T YOU EVER GO AFTER MY FUCKING BAE!" Kim said as she threw her champagne glass on the table with force. "EVERYBODY WILL KNOW, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT!!!" Mabel shouted.
"Please don't got there, don't go there, don't go there." Meg said as she helps Kim outside the restaurant. "DON'T YOU FUCKING GO NEAR JOHN EVER!" Kim shouted, as she is helped by Meg out.
Outside the restaurant, Kim started to sob in Meg's arms, after being hurt by Mabel's unexpected rage. Meanwhile back inside the restaurant, Mabel is still in her rage. "This has gone too far." Beatrice said to Mabel. "I'm sorry, but she can't lie about me, or I'll tell something that is true." Mabel said to Beatrice. "Mabel, stop it now!" Beatrice said.
Back outside, Heather came to a sobbing Kim and she tried to comfort her. "It's okay" Meg said, as she comforts Kim. "I know, I know you came to a good place. I know, I know, I know. Don't cry, don't cry please." Meg said.
Back inside, Candy grabs her purse and she tries to escape Mabel's restaurant rage. "Go after you new friend, Candy." Mabel said. "Oh Mabel stop. How can I help you when you act like this?" Candy said emotionally. "What are you talking about? She lies about me, and all I said is that I was gonna tell the truth in her fucking life!" Mabel shouted at Candy. "You want me to help you, but your problem is unsolvable." Candy said. "She's lying about me?! SHE'S LYING ABOUT ME?!" Mabel said.
Meanwhile, outside the restaurant, "You came to a good place." Meg said when she saw Beatrice "Geez! I'm like...uh...I know! You've gone too far?! You've gone too fast, sure!" Beatrice said. Then, Candy came into the scene and she hugged Meg and Kim as she cries as well. "I'm sorry." Meg said as she hugs Candy. Then Candy pulled away, faced the girls and said, "I'll be double for nothing, y'know, that's the ebst part. I'M SO SICK OF FUCKING HELPING HER PROBLEM THAT IS UNSOLVABLE AND I'VE BEEN HIDING HER HUGE ASS PROBLEM FROM YOU GUYS FOR YEARS, AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MY LIFE NOW THAT YOU FOUND OUT." Candy said, while sobbing. "C'mon, get it together, get it together." Beatrice said to the girls. "Just go back to her and tell, just go back to her and tell..." she said to Candy, asking her to go back to the restaurant and talk to her. "I don't know" Candy said, scared to talk to Mabel. Candy then decided to let Meg and Beatrice go back to the restaurant and talk to Mabel and she'll just return to the van.
Back inside the restaurant, "How come Kim is such a mean person?" Mabel asked Margaret, who is trying to grab her things. "I...I...I don't even know what this is. I never...I...like...I...you threw a glass in my fucking skin, that's awesome." Margaret said. "Thought she was gonna choke me." Mabel said as she comes near Margaret, and decided to sit down near the glass window. "Candy, that just gets me...really?" Mabel said. "Fuck that." Mabel said, as Meg enters the restraurant. "What happened? I...I don't even...I don;t even know what to say but I...I mean...that is not the way to communicate." Meg said as Mabel stands up. "Once again, after we already discussed..." Mabel said when she ran out of words to say and Beatrice enters the room. "Mabel." Beatrice said as she enters. "There's a certain way to talk. That is not the way to talk." Meg said while Mabel moves to another seat. "I have been pushed the limit with this." Mabel said as she grabs her things and go into the van. "No....this is...this is not okay." Meg said as she cleans up the broken champagne glass pieces in the table.
After that, all returned to their van. "Fuck! Shit! Fuck!!!" Kim said as she enters the van.
Night time in their hotel, everyone of the girls are in their rooms sleeping, the cameras are off, when somebody knocked the door. "John?" Mabel said as she saw John standing, with his coat on. "Hey Mabel. Are you alone? May I come in?" John said. "Yeah, yes. Yes! Please, do come in." Mabel said enthusiastically. "So, you and I need to talk." John said. "Oh, is this about the fight me and your girlfriend had earlier? Please don't get mad at me. I swear..." Mabel said nerously, scared of what John wants. "Mabel, I'm not mad. In fact, I want to talk about something." John said sweetly. "What do you want to talk about?" Mabel said, still nervous. "I want to be with you." John said holding her hands. "Whaaaatttt?" Mabel said, shocked. "I know that you want to be with me so bad." he said. "How do you know?" Mabel asked. "The fight. I watched the fight earlier. You know, Kim is a bad girlfriend." John said. "Really?" Mabel asked. "Yeah! She yells at me all the time, she never let me have some time for myself, she never let me talk to any girl besides her, and since that fight, she never let me see you throughout the show." John said, while tears start to gather around his eyes. "Oh, John. I'm really sorry about her. She's a bitch, we know that." Mabel said, as she comforts John. "I know, she's a motherfucking bitch. She forced me to be with her because everyone loves her and I'm the son of the executive producer of the show. But you know, after I saw you fight with her, I'm starting to fall in love with you." John said, as he clears up his eyes. "Really?" Mabel asked. "Yeah. You're fierce and flawless, and, almost every single criteria for my dream girl." John said. "Oh, that's so sweet, but..." Mabel said. "But what?" John asked. "But, I think you should stay away from me." Mabel said, as she lets go of John's hands. "What? Why?" John asked again. "Check your twitter." Mabel said, as John brings out his phone from his pocket and checks his twitter account. A hashtag named, #CKOAFight, is the most trending topic of that day. Everyone keeps talking about the fight, 24/7. They even had a verdict on which side they're on. It's either #TeamMabel or #TeamKim, and so far, they voted for Team Kim as they think that Mabel is a alcoholic slut-faced bitch. One said that they should let Mabel go to rehab and have her leave one season of the show.
"Oh!" John said. "Yeah. Everyone think's I'm a slut-faced bitch because of that fight, and nobody likes me. I don't understand. What's wrong with me. I told everyone that I have a huge crush on you and it turned into a glass-breaking fight. I never tend to fight Kim. I just want to talk to her like a civilized person in a civilized dinner in front of civilized women. Maybe everyone's right. I should leave the show and go to rehab. Much better, a mental asylum. Ever since I stepped in this show, I feel that I'm starting to get crazy. I start to do bad deeds and I got involved in a fight. I don't know what's worst. To have myself subjected into months of rehab or to just end my motherfucking life." Mabel said as she grabs a knife in the counter. "No!" John said as he tries to get the knife away from her. "Stay away from me John. If you don't want to turn crazy like me, then you should be with Kim, and not me." Mabel said as she aims the knife in her heart. "No! Please, don't end your life. Let me talk to you for a second, okay." John said. "There's still more things in your life than that crazy online debate. Your family, your friends, your fellow cool kids, your brother who you try to forget since season 1, there's still more out there. Please, just. Just don't end this life. You only have one shot and this is it. Please, just throw the knife away, you're scaring the fans of the show." John said, scared of what Mabel's doing. "No...please...don't...stop!" Mabel said while in tears. "I can be your man, Mabel. I can be your forever. I can be everything to you. I can even be your husband if you want to. I don't even want to be with Kim. I want to be with you actually. Please, just put the knife down and we can be together." John said. "You mean it?" Mabel said, still in tears. "Yes, I mean it. I want to be with you and I hate Kim. Please, you're scaring me." John said, as Mabel continues to fight back the emotions mixing together, until she finally let go of the knife and ran to hug John. "I'm crazy." Mabel whispered to John, while she is fighting back the tears. "You're not. You're not crazy." John said to her. "I'm not crazy." Mabel said to him, as she looks at him like she's about to kiss him, but they didn't.
After that, John helped Mabel to bed. "You just stay here and take some rest. You deserve it after...you know what happened." John said to Mabel, as she giggled. John then gave Mabel a small kiss on the cheek before leaving her hotel room. "John?" Mabel called. "Yeah Mabel?" John said as he approaches the door. "Thank you, for everything, that you've done tonight. If it wasn't for you, I could've been dead by now." Mabel said, as he giggled. "That was scary as fuck. Well, night Mabel." John said as he opens the door. "Oh, and don't tell anyone what happened tonight, especially Kim. She'll wild out when she finds out we're a thing." John said. "Yeah, sure." Mabel said as John exits the hotel room.
In the hotel's lobby, John's dad, and the executive producer of the show, James Thomas Knowles, is waiting outside. "Well, son? Did it work?" James said to his son. "Yeah dad, your brilliant plan actually worked." John said to his dad sarcastically, as James nodded. "Dad, that thing scared me. She almost killed herself. Lucky for you, I'm good at talking to girls." John said. "Yeah, yeah, sure." James said, who seems doesn't care about his situation. "So, what's the plan again?" John asked. "I told you a thousand times, you hook up with Mabel off-camera, you break up with Kim on-camera, Mabel and Kim fight their asses when we return to Phoenix, and BOOM! Ratings extravaganza!" James explained. "Are you sure your plan will work, because I'm really happy with Kim and I'm a bit worried about Mabel and..." John asked, when his dad interrupted him. "Of course it'll work, silly. Trust me, I'm the executive producer here, and I make the rules of this show. And as a frequent guest in the show, and my son, it's your duty to follow me or you'll face the consequences" James said. "Anyways, get the car. We have to pick up your mom in the National Museum of Denmark." James said to him, as the two leave the hotel.
While they are talking, Mabel's producer, Frankie Small, just went out of a Starbucks shop and he entered the hotel, when he heard James and John talking. He heard that James forced John to be with Mabel so that their ratings will skyrocket the show to the ultimate fame. "Should I tell Mabel?" Frankie thought to himself as he saw James and John leave the hotel. "No you shouldn't." Frankie's conscience told him. "You heard John. Mabel almost committed suicide because of the fight. It's best to keep this a secret and pretend that you never heard anything about this." his conscience said to Frankie. "Yeah I should." Frankie said to his conscience as he returns to his hotel room and let things go smoothly.
Chapter 8: Speak NowEdit
"And, that's what happened." John said, still talking to Dipper.
"Okay, so let me get this straight. Since the first season of your stupid show, Mabel's been trying to forget me?" I asked.
"Yeah! Since day one, she never forgot about you, man." John answered.
"And Candy tried to help her forget about me by having her get a new crush, and that crush is you?" I asked again, shocked to the fact that Mabel never forgot about me ever since.
"Yeah." John answered.
"And your dad forced you to be Mabel's boyfriend so that your stupid show will become the most watched show in Netflix?" I asked, with John answering "Yeah."
"So, you never really loved Mabel, and you liked Kim more." I asked for the fourth time, with John answering the obvious answer, "Yeah, man. I loved Kim since we were kids, and we broke up because she learned that me and Mabel are a thing."
"That's kinda weird." I said, knowing the fact that Kim is in the wedding and she seems happy.
"What's weird?" John asked.
"That Kim is here, in the wedding. She's outside, in the church benches, waiting for you and Mabel to get wed." I said.
"Oh, right. Mabel and Kim are now frenemies. That means they are friends in public, but enemies in private." John said.
"Oh, okay." I said, when John's younger brother, Jonathan Aidan Knowles interrupted their conversation to inform his older brother that the wedding's about to start.
"Joe Aidan says the wedding's about to start." Jonathan said to them.
"Oh, okay Jonathan. I'll be there in a minute." John said to his younger brother.
"I told you a bajillion times, I hate being called Jonathan. I like to be referred by my nickname!" Jonathan said.
"Okay, 'Joe Aidan', tell them I'll be there in a minute." John said.
"Okay." Jonathan said, as he exits the room.
"What's that all about?" I asked John.
"Back in Phoenix, he loves watching this Cartoon Network show called We Bare Bears, and ever since he watched that show, he started to act like one of the bears." John answered.
"Which one?" I asked.
"Ice Bear. His favorite among all of the bears." John answered.
"You mean that silent one who often talks." I said.
"Yep. That one. Ice Bear has been Jonathan's favorite cartoon character and he has been acting like him since he watched that show, and he never leaves the house without watching an episode of that show. That's why we downloaded the Cartoon Network Anything app in our smartphone, so that he can never miss an episode of that show when he's outdoors." John explained.
"Okay." I said, still in mixed emotions.
"His twitter account is @joeaidanforpresident." John added.
"Well, that seems too obsessive." I said.
"Yeah! 'kay, well, I have to go. I don't want to keep them waiting outside." John said.
"Wait, you're just going to let yourself get wed to someone who is not your type?" I said.
"I have no other choice, man. I have to marry her, or I'll face the consequences. The show might cancel, Mabel might commit suicide again, dad might ground me for embarrassing him to the worldwide public, or even worse." John said.
"Maybe there is another way for you to get out of this agreement." I said.
"What do you propose?" John asked.
"We could...uh...maybe we...uh...." I said nervously, scared of losing my true love.
"Face it man, you have no match against my dad. He's got a show that everyone in the world is watching. If you make a scene out there, then everybody will know. He's got money, power, the public, and a pack of lawyers that can occupy half of the Staples Center." John said.
"Okay. I give up! I GIVE UP, YOUR DAD WINS! I'm going to lose Mabel because of your stinkin' father!" I said, as I starts to cry.
"It's okay man." John said as he tries to comfort Dipper. "You know, it's not too late for you. Just cherish your last moments with her right now. Get out there. Be a man you always thought, get out there and face her yourself. Talk to her and she'll understand." John said.
"You think that will work?" I asked, with tears in my eyes.
"Yeah, dude. It will work." John said to him. "Well, I better get out there. See ya out there man." John said as he pats me in the back and leaves.
As John leaves the room, I am alone. Alone in the shadow of my own failure. If I didn't rape her in the first place, all of this would've happened. I'm such a fool. Because of me, she has turned into a alcoholic crazy psychopath who beats up his friends for the sake of her crush. Because of me, she became a bad influence to the world. Because of me, she has turned into those skanky celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian. Because of me, she's getting wed to someone who doesn't love her back, for the sake of her show's viewership. Because of me, I am worthless. I think I deserve to be in an insane asylum, and not Mabel. She deserves to be free and not me. I want to be confined in an asylum like that one I saw on American Horror Story back when I was 12. I deserved to be treated like those poor patients in Briarcliff, because I deserve to suffer to death because of my horrible mistake.
Somebody knocked on the door while I'm wallowing in my mistakes. It was someone I can't remember.
"Hello? Is someone here?" a female voice came as she knocked onto my door.
"Go away! Dressing Room Town doesn't accept visitors." I said, copying Mabel's "sweatertown." Oh great, not only I started ruining her life, I started copying her as well. It's official, I'm the worst person in existence.
"May I come in?" that voice said. Man, does she ever understand two simple words, but I'm really suffering right now and I need someone to talk to.
"Door's open." I said, not knowing that I left the doorknob unlocked. Then, a girl in her twenties came in and locked the door. She has blonde hair with red lipstick on.
"Hey, are you okay?" that girl asked.
"Why you ask?" I asked.
"Because, I was on my way to the ceremony when I heard crying coming from this room, so I checked it and there you are, wallowing in your own filth." the girl said, noticing the empty cans of Coke and wet tissues spread in the room. "So, anyway, what's the problem?" she asked.
"It's nothing actually." I lied. I don't want her to know about my mistakes.
"Aw, come one, you can tell me. I can keep secrets you know." she said.
"Promise you won't tell anyone?" I asked her.
"Yeah! I won't tell anyone. I'm like a walking diary that is locked for secrets." she said.
"You sure?" I asked again.
"Yeah! Now tell me. I don't want to be late for the ceremony." she said.
"Okay, so here it goes." I said nervously. "You know the bride, right?" I asked her.
"Yeah, Mabel Pines, from The Cool Kids of Arizona. Everyone watches that show." she said.
"Okay, so, I'm her brother, Dipper and I made a very huge mistake." I said.
"What mistake?" she asked.
"I...uh...had...a huge crush on my sister." I said, making her so shocked.
"Whaaaat?" she said, shocked.
"It's true though. I have a huge-ass crush on my sister. One night when I was 13 years old, I came to her and I accidentally raped her." I said.
"Raped her? How?" she asked.
"I walked into her while she is asleep and I tried to kiss her in the lips, when suddenly she woke up and she suddenly kissed me, out of nowhere. Then, something inside me snapped so I touched her "boom-booms" and she touched my "dipstick", when suddenly, our mom came in and she decided to separate us. Once we've separated, I became depressed for weeks and have to seek treatment, while my sister is doing it the easy way. And that's how she entered The Cool Kids of Arizona." I explained.
"Oh, so that's how." she said.
"Then, she had a fight with Kim Rinna, and John's dad, the executive producer of the show, forced John to marry Mabel just for the show's ratings. He really wants the show to become the biggest show in Netflix. More than Orange Is The New Black, more than House of Cards, more than Fuller House." I said.
"WHAT?! NO WAY! NO FRICKING WAY!" she said.
"Yes way. In fact, this wedding is just a publicity stunt for the show to have the biggest ratings in Netflix history." I said.
"That little motherfucker. You mean John's dad forced him to marry Mabel just for a publicity stunt?" he asked.
"Yeah. The public really loves Mabel and he thought that the only way for the show to have the biggest ratings on Netflix is to have his son marry the most controversial member of the Cool Kids of Arizona. That way, everyone in the world will subscribe to Netflix and modern television will be dead." I explained.
"Oh, man! I could just strangle that guy's neck to death. That really annoyed me. I mean, I ship John and Kim Rinna since he first appeared on the show and soon as I learned that he and Mabel are dating, I almost set my mansion on fire." she said angrily. "So, why are you crying earlier?" she asked.
"Because, Mabel's going to get married to someone who doesn't love her back and I'm going to lose her forever." I said, as I start to cry again.
"Okay, so who is the lady John wants to marry, because, I know that it's not going to be me at this point." she said.
"It's Kim. Kim Rinna." I said.
"WHAT?! OH MY GOD! MY SHIP IS GOING TO BE CANON!!!" she said.
"Good for you, but not for me." I said, making her stop celebrating and she felt bad for me.
"You know Dipper, it's not too late. Go. Talk to her. Your love of your dreams is going to get married to someone who hates her so much. You're here already. Don't waste this opportunity." she said. Maybe John was right. Maybe I do need to talk to her personally to clear up our problems.
"You know what, maybe I will do that. I'll go out there, be a man I always think, and face Mabel right now!" I said.
"That's the spirit, Dipper." she said, when the wedding bells rung, signalling that the wedding is about to start.
"Oh, shit. The wedding. It's about to start." she said.
"You should go now. You don't want to miss the wedding for yourself. I'll follow you later." I said to her.
"Okay." she said as she apporaches the door.
"Wait!" I called her, not knowing her name yet. "What's your name?" I asked her.
"I'm Taylor Swift. International singing icon and proud Cool Kids of Arizona fan." she said as she shook hands with me and left the room.
Chapter 9: I Knew You Were TroubleEdit
Maybe John and Ms. Swift were right. Maybe I do need to face Mabel myself. I'm just too scared, and frightened, and afraid. Wait, those are synonyms right? Those are synonyms to the one feeling I'm having in the moment, fear.
The wedding bells are ringing. I got up from my seat, grabbed my camera and I got out of my room. As I enter the church, I see everyone in fancy get-up, trying to get the best seat in the house. As I try to find mom and dad, John called at me. "Psst. Dipper. Over here!" John called. I went to the altar and John pointed where my parents are seating, which is in the front row. They are seated behind John's family. In our row, mom, dad, Grunkle Stan, Grenda, Soos, and Wendy are seated. Seated beside us is Finn, Amethyst, Rigby, their boyfriends & girlfriends, Ms. Taylor Swift and her boyfriend. I think his name is Calvin Harris. Rigby is a huge fan of him and according to him, he's a very famous DJ from Scotland and his songs are always played on the radio. I've also heard a lot of hits from his girlfriend.
Kim, who reserved her entire row for the girls and Mabel's producer to sit later, seems to be crying, probably still jealous of them. Candy is with her, trying to comfort her as she kept crying. I tried to talk to her and tell her the true story but my conscience told me to look away and take my seat.
As soon as I got into my seat, John's dad noticed me. He's right in front of me.
"Hey, there kid. You must be Mabel's brother, Dipper, right?" Mr. Knowles asked.
"Yes. Yes I am." I answered.
"Nice to meet you, young man. I'm Mr. James Thomas Knowles. John's father, Mabel's manager and the executive producer of The Cool Kids of Arizona. I also organized the wedding." he introduced himself as I shaked my hands with him.
"It's an honor to meet you Mr. Knowles. Your son has told me a lot about you, sir." I said.
"Good to know." he answered. "So, are you excited that your sister is going to get wed?" he asked.
"Yes, sir. I'm totally excited for Mabel to get married." I answered. "So, are you excited that your son is getting married, sir?" I asked.
"Yes, kid. My son has loved your sister ever since they've met. They're really in love with each other, they've decided to rush in." he said. That is a total lie. John has told me everything he and Mabel doesn't know, but it's best to keep it a secret and just focus on my main mission, to get into Mabel and talk to her.
"Okay, good to hear that Mabel's been doing well." I lied. "So, what's up with the show? Any new developments."
"Not much. The show has been renewed for another season, and Mabel and her friends are going to appear in Taylor Swift's new music video."
"Yeah. Turns out Taylor is a huge fan of the show and she wants the kids to appear in her new music video, which is going to be filmed next week."
"You don't say!"
Mr. Knowles laughs as he returned his attention to the altar. I turned towards John's brother.
"Who are you?" he asked.
"Don't you remember me? Me and your brother were talking until you came along and disturbed our conversation." I said sarcastically.
"Oh yeah! Nice to meet you, dude. I'm Jonathan Aidan Knowles, but call me Joe Aidan. I hate it when people call me Jonathan." he introduced himself as we shook our hands.
"I'm Dipper Pines. I'm the brother of the girl your brother is going to get wed." I said.
"Oh, okay." he said.
"Wait? You're a huge fan of We Bare Bears right? Your brother told me that you have a habit of imitating your favorite character, Ice Bear."
"Did he told that to you?"
"Well, it's true, though. I really love Ice Bear and he's my role model, so I want to imitate him in order for me to be like him."
"But don't you think that imitating Ice Bear might make you sound a little bit autistic?"
"I only do that in front of my family. They already know that I'm so obsessed with the show, and they really understand me. They even got me the entire We Bare Bears franchise for Christmas. I don't do the imiations in public, because, you know, one day, we were watching this PBS documentary about autistic children, and after I watched that, I realized how autistic I sound when I imitate Ice Bear, so I only do the imitations privately, so that people won't think I have autism."
"Okay, good to know." I said. My negativity and hopelessness was consumpted as I kept talking with Joe Aidan, and when the church bells rang, something snapped inside of me. All of the negativity, hopelessness and fear returned, because of the fact that I'm going to lose my Mabel forever.
While I'm trying to forget about Mabel, I stared up in the ceilings and I waved at the large painting of Jesus and I laughed slightly, much to my annoyance of the church's organist and the priest. I stared blankly at the altar. I forgot about her a little bit, but as the church bells kept ringing, it kept on returning into my mind. I gritted his teeth and clenched my fists before noticing mom looking at me.
"So, I didn't noticed you were sitting here the entire time."
"Of course. I would never miss Mabel's wedding."
"I'm glad. You know how much it means to her."
"Yeah. I need to use the bathroom."
I stood up and I stretched before I walked away. I walked through the church, looked at the various paintings and I greeted different strangers, doing everything I can to avoid Mabel. But he spotted her in a room, putting on makeup that gives her pink cheeks as her friends fiddle with the large wedding dress. When one of the girls noticed me, I started to run away, but it's too late, she called me.
"Hey! You there?" she said.
"Are you talking to me?" I asked.
"Yeah!" she said as she went out of the room, and talked to me in closed door. "Were you spying on us, you douche?" she asked.
"Okay, first of all, I'm not spying on you, and second..." I answered, when she interrupted me.
"Wait, do I know you from somewhere?" she asked.
"No, I think you don't know me. In fact, I don't even know you?" I said.
"I remember you from somewhere. That face, that brown hair, that hat, I just can't put my finger on it."
"Whatever you thinking, we never met in the first place."
"Wait, I just remembered. Are you Dipper?"
"Yeah, I am!" I said, when she slapped me hard in the face.
"You scumbag! Don't you know how much you've put me and your sister through?" she said.
"I...I...I don't know what are you talking about?"
"Your sister has been crying in her sleep during the entire first season. I tried helping her. Getting her to have a slumber party, watch a local football game, shopping in the mall until it closes, nothing worked. So, I decided that we should enter the Cool Kids of Arizona so she could be famous enough to forget you, but she can't. You molested her enough for her to keep crying and turn into Kim fucking Richards!"
"I NEVER MOLESTED MABEL, WE JUST GOT CARRIED AWAY!"
"Well, your little accident turned her into one of the most controversial girls on Twitter. She started drinking, taking illegal drugs, and TRASHED TALKED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US, INCLUDING TWO OF HER BEST FRIENDS!" she said, as she gave me three claps.
"Bravo, Dipper Pines. You just ruined Mabel's clean and good life." she said. My guilt level is at all time high.
