    Summary

    Something was very, very amiss. Dipper was certain of it, but he could quite put his finger on what. It had started with Grunkle Ford not being at the lab at all, only Grunkle Stan there. Not even Fiddleford was around, all mentions of him causing Grunkle Stan to be more evasive than normal. It was all very strange.

    Still, the instructions he and Mabel had been given were clear: Catch Pokemon. Easy. Maybe. Not in the slightest.

    ----

    On a quest for their Grunkle Ford, twins Mabel and Dipper Pines find a lot more than badges and Pokemon research await them. A team of Pokemon thieves with who-knows-what planned need to be stopped. With newly acquired friends Wirt and Greg by their side, nothing can stop them! Not even the distraction of a budding romance between Wirt and Dipper.

    Summary

    With a four day weekend on the horizon, Wirt sees an opportunity to spend some much needed time with everyone's favorite set of twins before counting down the minutes until summer. Four days may not seem worth it to some, but to him it's an opportunity to share in a part of Dipper's life that he's normally unable to see - his pitching prowess. Wirt isn't going to let anything get in the way of that.

    Not even the car heading straight for him.

    Summary

    Wirt makes sure to go to every single one of Dipper's baseball games, home or away. Mostly because he's a supportive boyfriend, but he also can't deny how good Dipper looks out on the field. Like, really good. And any guy who looks that good pitching his way to victory deserves to feel really good as well. Sure, Wirt doesn't know much about baseball, but he knows a lot about Dipper, and exactly just how to motivate him to win the game.

    Summary

    It had been happening ever since they got back from Oregon.

    Nothing big. Nothing noticeable. Not at first, anyway. Looking back on it now, it was all too obvious that something wasn’t right. It was in the air, small ripples of a disturbance that Wirt had been too distracted to realize were there right away. Whispers, warnings, that feeling of being watched when no one was there, and the persistent thought, "Look out for him. Look out for him. Look out for him."

    Because it was after him, whatever this was, Wirt reflected as he pressed against the wall in the hallway, listening outside the bedroom across from his. Something was in that room with his little brother. And it wasn’t going away.

    ----

    The Mystery Best Friends thought the worst part of being on opposite coasts was having to deal with not seeing one another for the better part of the year. They were wrong.

    Summary

    Wirt’s growl was a soft warning, and Dipper quivered before settling against the door. He gazed at Wirt with a quiet obedience that was really unlike his talkative, determined boyfriend. He almost wanted to tell him to do as he liked, unused to exercising his command over others, but he needed to breathe. Plus, he really didn't want Dipper to be dry-humping him in front of Mabel. That was just... embarrassing.

    --

    As Dipper begins to go into his mating cycle, he knows he needs an alpha to help him through it. And as much as he wants to find his real mate, there's only one alpha on his mind...

    Summary

    "Dipper closed the distance, taking his hand and lacing their fingers. It didn’t matter that he stuttered some. He could still be taken seriously. He was important. He mattered enough to be called more by his own father. How often had Wirt wondered since sending the card if his dad had gotten it and read a question about his birthday? As much as Dipper and his own dad had their troubles, he’d never had to ask to spend a birthday together."

    - Chapter 14 in "Lakeville, City of Lakes"

    Wirt spends his 16th birthday with his dad and things don't exactly go according to plan.

    Set between part three and part four of "Mystery Best Friends."

    Summary

    Based on: ‘sorry i set the fire alarm in our building off again for the forty-eighth time i was trying to cook’ AU prompt.

    Paranormal mystery writer Dipper Pines really doesn't mean to keep setting his kitchen on fire. His appliances just hate him. But the next time it happens, he's getting evicted even if the landlord is his Grunkle Stan.

    Overhearing that threat, high school English teacher and neighbor Wirt Palmer can't just let it happen. Dipper seems nice enough, after all, and no one deserves to be homeless. Offering cooking lessons seems like a good gesture and it's about time he do something neighborly.

    And how can Dipper resist the offer from his very cute neighbor?

    Summary

    He couldn’t believe he was doing this.
    Wirt stared at the package in his hands, relieved - so very, very relieved - to be the only one home when it arrived. Even if the brown cardboard wasn’t incriminating in and of itself, inside was one of the deepest, darkest secrets he’d ever bestowed upon himself.

    ----

    Wirt and Dipper's practically non-existent sex life has ground to quite the halt, so Wirt's taking matters into his own hands. Literally. He can do this for Dipper. He wants to do this for Dipper. He just doesn't want Dipper to know.

    Summary

    "It had been difficult, at first, to find information on Mabel and Dipper Pines. It had been especially difficult for Wirt to wrap his mind around what information he did find. The Gravity Falls webpage was an ugly, brown mess with an outdated interface and weak search capabilities. That was why it had been so easy to disbelieve the dates on the articles he’d eventually come across. The main one he’d found, at least with the Dipper Pines he’d recognized, contained a photograph of him fighting a giant bat with a police taser."

    When Wirt and Greg successfully plan a summer trip with a stop in Gravity Falls, Oregon seven months after their stint in The Unknown, they're not exactly sure what they'll find waiting for them. Or who, to be more precise. But whether waiting months or years, the Mystery Best Friends inevitably find themselves back together and ready to tackle new mysteries and some delicious ob-waffle.

    Summary

    After leaving Endicott's labyrinthine manor, Wirt, Greg, and Beatrice stumble upon more mysteries in the woods of The Unknown between the eccentric tea baron and the McLaughlin Bros. ferry. Specifically, the Mystery Twins.

    Dipper thought he'd been through every inch of the Gravity Falls woods, but he and Mabel had found someplace that was decidedly new and different. “If this part of the woods isn't in the journal, how are we supposed to find the way back?”

    Summary

    "There was still no sign of his brother’s mysterious dad. He’d never seen the man before, so he couldn’t help but be curious and a little bit excited to see just who Mort Palmer really was. Would he arrive wearing a suit, clutching a briefcase, with slicked back hair and secret service sunglasses? Or would he be a hunchback, with a snaggle-tooth smile and a receding hairline? Or would lighting split the sky the second he arrived, his hair frazzled like a mad scientist, with an eye patch and a mustache befitting Snidely Whiplash, Dudley Do-Right of the Royal Canadian Mounties’s sworn enemy?"

    In which Greg meets his brother's biological father for the first time and things don't go as planned, though that's not entirely a surprise.
