Sneak Peak: Pacifica's Lumberjack Challenge
Summer had once again come to Gravity Falls, and for Pacifica Northwest that meant only one thing, the return of the Pines Twins. Yes the town heroes had come back to Gravity Falls at every opportunity in the past year. Every holiday, every season break, somehow they even managed singular day offs from school just to come back to this town. What was even more impressive was that their Great Uncles manage to come back for these days as well so Dipper and Mabel would have them to look after them, exactly how was a bit of mystery. When confronted on how they were able to pull any of this off, considering how they were supposed to be traveling the world, they would usually respond with 'It's a family secret'.
It didn't matter to Pacifica though, she always took advantage of any time they were back in town. The Pines twins, the younger ones, were very special friends to her. Mabel was fun and more emotionally understanding than her brother was, the golf courses she came up with were a lot o

Jack Frost floated through the air blissfully singing to himself.
"Back in black, da da de de do, I don't know the words but Jaaaaaaack is baaaack!"
"Pretty sure that's not how that song goes." Dipper commented.
"Oh whatever, listen you go find your Blonde Bombshell and I'm going to go check on the Icecube and the pixie gnat."
"Jack, I have just one question."
"What's that, Flip-A-Dip-Dip?"
"Don't call me that. Never call me that. Ever! My question for you is why can I see you right now? I'm not wearing the goggles!"
"Oh well that's simple, I'm just allowing you to. That's all."
This struck a nerve with Dipper. The goggles were his first successful invention as a child, for them to be unnecessary for their intended purpose was infuriating.
"Excuse me?!"
"Of course, I only let you use those goggles so much because I thought they made you look funny!"
"You dick!"
Dipper was about to really lay in to him when Siegfried's roar finally reached their part of the cave.
"What was that? I thoug

Dipper and Pacifica were doing their best to tail Siegfried and his goons without being noticed. Thankfully enough, they were far enough away to see them with the fading light yet could still be concealed in the darkness around them. However, just to play it safe, they made sure to keep as low to the ground as possible.
Siegfried came to a sudden stop, throwing up his arms to stop the march of his little brigade.
"Hold on everyone, a thought just occurred to me." Siegfried announced. "Bartholomew, get back to the ritual rock and put the protective spell from page 394 on it. If that human can figure out our plan just by seeing through my lies then it probably wouldn't take him too long to figure out how we did everything."
"Aw come on, why can't Ruth go?"
"Because Ruth has a weight limit, now march!"
Finding refuge behind a large rock, Pacifica listened intently, waiting for Dipper to give the order a tail Bart. It never came, Dipper was being unusually quiet. Turning her attention to h

"I said, 'Let's talk this out like proper businessmen, shall we?' No reason why we can't be civilized about this." stated the stout man.
This man had a peaceful and pleasant look on his face as he smiled at them like an old friend. Dipper wasn't fooled for one minute, having Grunkle Stan in his wonder years taught him how to recognize a con man just by looking at them. This guy was as fake as a three dollar bill.
"What are you?" Pacifica asked bluntly. "You don't seem to be human but you don't look like any magical creature or paranormal monster I've ever seen."
"Why my dear girl, I am what is called a Dwarf."
"A Dwarf? I've actually never met a Dwarf before."
"Really my dear boy? Well then it's my pleasure to be the first. My name is Siegfried and these are my two associates Bartholomew and our little Ruthless. Sadly our stone sentinel here doesn't really have a name."
"Ruthless?" repeated Dipper.
"Yeah! Ruth is short for Ruthless!" snapped Ruth.
"Fitting name." Pacifica commented dry

Pacifica thought that as soon as Dipper woke up they could talk about what happened and put an end to the awkwardness she felt. Oh but she was very wrong! The awkwardness had only just begun.
Dipper and Pacifica sat at opposite ends of the cave, avoiding eye contact with one another. The silence was the most frustrating thing for both of them. They knew they should talk about what just happened, they knew the longer they put it off the harder it would be, but both were acting too shy and embarrassed to take that first step. Dried clothes probably would have been a big help if it wasn't for the fact that they were damp at best at the moment.
"I'm sorry..." Dipper chimed in quietly.
"For what?" Pacifica's volume was nearly as quiet as Dipper's. "You saved my life, Dipper. You did what you had to so I could survive right?"
Dipper stared at the floor. "Yeah... but... I could understand if you were upset because I had to... you know..."
Pacifica mimicked Dipper's actions. "Yeah... not a fan

Things had gone quickly south as soon as Dipper and Pacifica had left Jack. The heavy snow fall had turned in to a full fledged blizzard, they trudged on through the snow following the compass though. However, the distance they needed to travel was greater than they anticipated and now the only thing they could see around them was a white flurry of wind.
"PACIFICA, IT'S NO GOOD!!" Dipper shouted over the wind. "WE HAVE TO GET OUT OF THIS STORM!!!"
Dipper looked to his compass one last time and swore as both needles spun around inside the compass. 'Jack must be at half strength right now!'
With goggles on, they flipped their switches and the green vision filled their views. Dipper pulled on the diode for both their goggles and their vision turned from green to red. Pacifica would guess that it was some weird type of a different thermal vis

The drive out had been peaceful enough, but Dipper knew he was getting close when it started to snow. He turned the heating for the RV up as he turned in to a mountain park, the further he went the heavier the snow became. He sighed tiredly, working with Jack Frost was never pleasant and now Pacifica was going to learn all about the guy. A part of him was afraid of how she might look at him after meeting his bad friend, it was said you could judge someone by the company they keep after all. As soon as they met there was no going back.
Turning a hard right, Dipper spotted a hole in the snow clouds at the top of the hill and headed towards it. Pacifica had told him she needed a hot shower to brace herself for whatever cold they were about to go up against so Dipper couldn't go over a game plan with her just yet. As soon as he got to the top of the hill he heard Pacifica give out a high pitched shriek.
"I guess we're here then."

Dipper had driven them through two states already and the trip had been surprisingly quiet. Not in the awkward silence way but in that they had no other monsters giving them trouble kind of way. Since their adventure with Edna, Dipper had been mailing a letters to Mabel with details on the cases he and Pacifica had solved. They had made a couple of stops naturally, to things like eat and chat or just to get more gas. Yet through these small acts they found themselves enjoying the company of each other a little more each time. Once they had even stopped at a picnic table just to play chess. Before they knew it, two weeks had already passed.
Night had covered their surroundings as Dipper drove up to large building. It reminded Pacifica of an Office Depot building, the only difference being the giant words on the top of the building spelling out the words 'The Craft Shack'. Naturally the S of the sign looked like it was going to fall off at any second.
Pacifica had fallen asleep in the pa

Both Dipper and Pacifica stared at the newspaper on the table inside the RV.
"It is odd Pacifica, but are you sure he couldn't have just... I don't know, kept some money under his mattress or something? I mean Gruncle Stan had like fifty hiding places for money."
"No Northwest does that because it'd be too risky having the maid or the butler find it by accident and making off with it. No. I'm telling you, he had to have some type of supernatural help!"
Dipper stared at the newspaper harder. "Are you sure there isn't anyway he could have landed on his feet safely."
"No. I'm telling you Dipper, it just doesn't make sense. Even my father had no choice but to settle on becoming a warehouse manager, there is no reason for my cousin to be doing this well. By all accounts he should be in the poorhouse right now!"
Dipper rubbed his chin thought for a moment in silence before coming to a decision.
"Alright, you've convinced me."
She looked up from the newspaper at him with hope in her

Dipper and Pacifica made their trek towards Edna's cottage, although the atmosphere was a little less professional than Dipper would have liked.
"Oh quit pouting! With any luck, this won't take too long!"
"I am not pouting! I just don't like this woman, that's all."
"Well that's fine. You are free to hate her as much as you want, just don't let it interfere with the job. We're supposed to be professionals so put the hostilities on ice."
Pacifica sighed in defeat. "Fine...what is she supposed to be anyways? You said she wasn't human, so what is she? A gorgon or something?"
"HA! Yeah, I wish she was something that simple! If she was a gorgon this case would already be closed."
"Then what is she?"
Dipper and Pacifica were almost on top of the cottage now, but Pacifica had been dragging behind slightly. Maybe it was because she was confused on what Edna actually was, or maybe it was because she really didn't want anymore interaction with her, but it certainly wasn't because she was enjoyin

Mayor Brown was a short man, fat and stout. His balding head shined in the light from the overhead hanging lamp. Sitting behind his desk, he sweated nervously under Dipper's intense glare. Pacifica sat next to Dipper on the other side of the desk, the fold out chairs they were sitting on weren't comfortable at all.
Mayor Brown cleared his throat. "Um...could you stop glaring at me please?"
"I told you were you that you were still in danger! I told you that you weren't safe yet!! I told you to let me continue my investigation but you didn't listen!!!" yelled Dipper.
Mayor Brown grabbed a handkerchief from the pocket of his blue business suit and wiped the sweat off of his face. "I know that now, and you were right! It's exactly like last time but worse now! Last time we lost twelve people in a month, this time we've lost over twenty in a week!"
'Twenty in a week?' Pacifica thought. 'What are we dealing with here?'
Dipper sighed. "Alright, I'm willing to take the case again

Pacifica woke up to notice something was very wrong. Her bed was severely lacking in the silk sheets she had imported from China, her llama plushie was gone, her velvet blankets were missing, and her alarm clock hadn't gone off. She sat up and saw the privacy curtain Dipper had made for her and it all came flooding back to her.
She gave herself a once over. She had slept in her clothes; to be fair she didn't have any pajamas anymore. She was going to have to talk to Dipper about going shopping. She pulled back the privacy curtain to find the RV empty, Dipper wasn't anywhere to be seen.
She took two steps and a sudden chill ran down her spine, there was something behind her, she could feel the ominousness in the air. She slowly turned around to see a giant flaming eyeball floating in the air. Despite being an eyeball, it still had a layer of skin to cover itself and form eyelids, although it seemed horribly burned.
Pacifica screamed for all she was worth as she ran to the driver's end o

DPPD Intro Montage
The original Gravity Falls theme starts as an RV speeds down the road.
Dipper and Pacifica share a smile as the vehicle passes by a sign which reads "Now leaving Gravity Falls".
The RV eventually gets parked as the laptop flashed red and Dipper and Pacifica race out of the living quarters entrance to the RV and down a street.
The scene changes to an underground passage where Dipper is following a set of footprints with a magnifying glass.
Now the scene has them back in the RV as it races down a street passing several mailboxes, separately reading "Who", "What", "Where", "When", "Why", and "How".
The scene changes once again and both Dipper and Pacifica are underground again. Pacifica shines her flashlight on the same horned skeleton from the original intro. Pacifica jumps at the sight but Dipper merely rolls his eyes at it, well before the skeleton started moving and tried to chase them anyways.
Dipper was hanging from the manotaur's ceiling with his whip, holding Pacifica by her waist

Hello! May I have the attention of Anyone and everyone interested in the publication of my Dipcifica one shot story. I have been very close to the ending for story but I hit a snag. And the snag is the writer, for some reason it has been having trouble saving my progress. I got so frustrated with it I've had to move it to the fanfiction document manager just to keep working on it. And that has been very annoying. UGH! Slowing me down; and I really want to work on the next chapter for my DPPD. Some good news is that I'm almost done, just got the last challenge, the wrap up, and then the end credits Easter Egg to write. So the short of it is: Progress is coming slowly but surely, frustrated but feeling good. So what I really need right now is patience and support.
