Hourglass Cipher: I needed something to keep ordinary Mabel and reverse Mabel separate, so reverse mabel is Mabill. I don't care if it's the ship name, it helps me! I'm sorry if that sounded stubborn.

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. Got caught up with a Uber fun summer camp! Also, third person is getting hard now. This is the longest I've been able to do it, and I can't think of anything else. It will now mainly be Raven's POV, but when necessary, and she's not around, it will be either third person or another character.

Story starts now! CANNONBALL! (I was recently at the pool)

Raven's POV

I took the phone to the room where I knew the stained glass window was. I put my necklace on then hopped on the window seat. The window had the same design on it, but it was blue.

I decided to look in the fanfic app. There were many stories about shows I had never heard of, including Steven Universe, Pokémon, and Sailor Moon. (I know all those shows btw) I decided to go into the alphabet listing and click (tap?) a random letter and show. I got Gravity Falls.

This town has a show about it?! How have I never heard about it?

I went into the searchbar and gooogled (I did that on purpose) Gravity Falls. The first thing that came up was Gravity Falls Wiki. I tapped on it and read the shows' summery.

This show had Dip Dop and Marbles but not me. What is with that? Also, HOW THE HECK IS OUR LIFE A TV SHOW?!

I didn't realize I said that out loud until a very wet, very confused Mabel shouted, "OUR LIFE IS A TV SHOW!?"

Mabel's POV

I heard Raven scream "Our life is a TV show and was shocked. Was this all the work of a TV crew?! I repeated after her, and from the way she jumped, it looked like I'd scared her half to death! She looked at me with a confused look.

"Raven, are you okay? You seem a little out of it," I said.

"Mabel look at this. This explains why the town is so weird. All this time, this was the reason Gravity Falls is so weird," Raven said, showing me the webpage.

"This doesn't make sense. This show is ANIMATED! How is this even possible?" I exclaimed.

Suddenly Raven put her hand on her head.

"Raven? Are you-"

"I remember who I am," she said.

"WHAT?! I thought your memories were gone!" I said, "Tell me, what do you remember?"

"Well, it's a little fuzzy, but I remember watching this show. That doesn't explain how I got here," she trailed off.

"This is amazing! But also confusing. How can you watch a show that's not supposed to exist?" I asked.

Short chapter but we have some Mabel-Raven

Bonding!
