Chapter 1: Summerween Part 1
Dan stood at the window of the floating pyramid, watching chaos and havoc race down below. Something about chaos seemed to call to him, but something held him back. Like that little voice of reason trying to tell him to run away from everything. Dan shook his head and sighed. He must have caught a virus or something.
"Isn't it great?!" A shrill voice asked him. Dan turned to see the floating triangle Bill. Bill reminded him of a dorito, whatever that was.
"The chaos?" Dan asked as Bill nodded, his one eye unblinking.
"Of course! Chaos is everything we stand for. Me, a mind demon, and you, a freak of nature, chaos calls out to us." Bill said as Dan narrowed his glowing red eyes.
"What do you mean a freak of nature?" Dan asked venomously as Bill chuckled.
"You here aren't you? Only freak of nature are allowed to be in the nightmare realm." Bill said as Dan couldn't believe what he said. Was he truly a freak of nature? No, he couldn't be. Could he?
Danny walked through a portal into an alleyway. He looked from around the corner and saw a regular looking town. A bit rundown, but then he had to criticize Amity Park too. Danny walked out of the alley and onto the sidewalk. Something didn't feel quite right about this place.
That's because this isn't an ordinary town. Danny smiled a bit as he heard Zorasil's voice in his head. According to my contact, there are mythical beings that roam these forests and an ever lurking danger. Find the heroes and just be careful. Danny nodded as he spotted a store that had a gigantic inflatable bat on top of the building and a bright green sign with Summerween Superstore in bold red letters.
"What the frick?" Danny walked towards the store and opened the door. It reminded him of Halloween in a sense. But there wasn't the surge of power he felt when the veil of death thinned between the living and the dead. He looked around when he heard a screeching noise from the parking lot. He looked to see a red and tna Cadillac hit a handicap parking sign.
"Oh no." He heard someone say as he looked to see the store clerk. She had a black apron with a green jack o' lantern over a red shirt.
"Who are they?" Danny asked as the worker sighed.
"They're the Pines Family. You have Stan Pines, the man who runs the mystery shack out in the forest. Along with his worker, the fat guy, Soos. And his niece and nephew, Mabel and Dipper respectively. Almost the whole town thinks their nuts." The worker explained as she walked away.
My contact has informed me that many of the town's mysteries are being solved by a young boy by the name of Dipper Pines. His entire family and friends are all apart of this. Zorasil informed Danny as Danny smiled. He didn't know that this easy to find the next heroes. Though they don't look much like heroes, but who was he to tell?
The doors of the store burst open as the Pines family rushed in. Danny watched as Dipper and Mabel ran into the costume aisle while Soos began to annoy the store clerk with a talking skull and Stan was picking up a barrel of fake blood laughing to himself.
Danny smiled sadly as he was reminded of his own family. It made him happy to see his family, but at the same time sad to think about his family and their tragedy. He shook his head as he began to ponder how he was going to get close to this family.
"NOT TODAY!" He heard Stan yell as he dropped a smoke bomb. Luckily, Danny closed his eyes in time but coughed as smoke filled his lungs.
"MY EYES!" The Store clerk yelled as Danny walked through the smoke and back outside. He saw Stan's car driving away and frowned. He took off his right eye and threw it onto Stan's car. Now he should know where they lived. Danny unnoticeably changed into his Phantom form and took to the skies. Following his eye.
Dipper turned around to see a dark shadow staring at them when he heard something hit the car. He tried to see what it was, but Grunkle Stan swerved the car and Dipper fell over while Mabel was laughing at him. As they arrived to the Mystery Shack which was already decorated for Summerween, Dipper forgot all about the shadowy figure or the thump on the car.
"I'm so excited!" Mabel exclaimed as Dipper grinned at his twin.
"We're gonna have the best costumes, get the most candy…" Dipper said Mabel grinned widely.
"And have the biggest stomachaches ever!" Mabel finished as Dipper pumped his fist in the air.
"Yeah!" Both him and Mabel giggled.
"Dude, I've never seen you guys so pumped." Soos said as he came into the living room dressed as a superhero.
"Well, back at home, me and Dipper were kind of the kings of trick-or-treating." Mabel explained as she held up a photo album. "Twins in costumes, the people eat it up." Dipper smiled at Soos who chuckled.
"Well, you dudes better be careful out there. It's a night of ghouls and goblins. Not to mention…" Soos said as he turned off the lights and turned on a flashlight in his face. "the Summerween Trickster!" Dipper and Mabel looked at each other in confusion.
"The Summer-what-what?" Mabel repeated as Dipper scrunched up his face in confusion.
"The Trickster goes door to door, so the legend goes, eating children who lack the Summerween spirit." Soos explained as Dipper rolled his eyes.
"Well, you don't have to worry about us." Dipper said as he popped a piece of candy in his mouth. "We've got spirit to go around." Dipper coughed back up the candy he had in his mouth as Soos turned back on the lights. "Ugh! What is this stuff? I've never even heard of these brands." Dipper lifted a hand full of candy as he shifted through them. "Sand Pop? Gummy chairs? Mr. Adequate-Bar?" Mabel made a face.
"This is all cheap-o loser candy!"
"Quiet your discontent, children, lest the Trickster overhear." Soos warned as Dipper grimaced.
"Your cape is caught in your fly, Soos." Dipper said as Soos nodded.
"Touche." Soos said as he ate a gummy. Dipper shook his head as he walked towards the window with the loser candy in hand.
"Goodbye loser candy!" Dipper said as he began to throw the off brand candy out the window. Dipper could have sworn he heard heavy breathing, but easily ignored it. The doorbell rang and all attention drew to the door.
"Trick-or-treaters. Quick! Give'em that terrible candy." Grunkle Stan ordered as Dipper opened the door. He practically jumped out of his skin when he saw a dark silhouette on the porch.
"Whoa, you alright there?" The figure asked as Dipper's eyes adjusted to the light. There was a teenager standing there with a smile on his face. His bright blue eyes were staring at him, full of clarity and something else he couldn't quite put. He had dark raven hair which fell in a mess on his head, but somehow suited him. He was tall, unbelievably tall with a strong build from what Dipper could see. He had a black leather jacket with a white shirt. Ripped jeans and a weird looking metallic hand.
"Yeah…" Dipper said suspiciously. "I'm fine. Who are you?" The teen chuckled as Dipper couldn't help but feel relaxed.
"I'm Danny. I'm here to see your uncle." Danny said as Mabel chose this time to bounce to the door.
"Whoa, who are you?" Mabel asked while stars danced in her eyes.
"I'm Danny. I'm here to see your uncle, Stan." Danny said as Grunkle Stan made his way into the room.
"Yeah, what do you want, kid?" Grunkle Stan asked as Danny smiled.
"I recently arrived into this town and I was recommended to come here and ask for a room." Danny explained though Dipper thought it was an obvious lie.
"Sorry kid, but I don't give out rooms for free." Grunkle Stan explained as he began to close the door.
"Wait, wait. I have money." Danny said as Grunkle Stan opened the door.
"Now you're speaking my language. How long are you going to stay here?" Grunkle Stan asked and Dipper couldn't believe his ears. His Grunkle was going to let a complete stranger stay with them for money?!
"Grunkle Stan, you can't do this. We don't know him!" Dipper complained as Danny handed Grunkle Stan a wad of cash.
"I don't know. My relatives just dropped me off here. But I'm willing to pay for my stay here, maybe do some work. If you want?" Danny said, obviously desperate to get someplace to stay. Dipper was a little bit suspicious, but there was panic he could see in Danny's eyes.
"Sure kid. Got any clothes or necessities?" Grunkle Stan asked as Danny shook his head.
"Nothing. They just dumped me here without anything. But don't worry, I can take care of myself." Danny said with a smile on his face.
"I'm Stan Pines by the way. These are my niece and nephew, Mabel and Dipper. That's Soos." Grunkle Stan introduced everyone as Danny smiled at each of them.
"It's great to meet all of you. I'm really sorry to be barging in on your vacation, Dipper and Mabel." Danny said as Dipper blinked. How did he know that they were on vacation? This just made Dipper even more suspicious. "I mean it's summer everyone should be on vacation." Dipper felt a tad guilty. He forgot it was summertime when all the kids would be out of school.
"It's okay! I'm sure Dipper and I won't mind, right Dipper?" Mabel nudged Dipper who sighed and nodded.
"Yeah. I think we'll get along." Danny beamed at them as the doorbell rang once more. "I'll get it." Dipper rushed off to open the door to find Robbie and Wendy standing on the porch. Dipper accidentally dropped the bowl of candy while Robbie sneered at him.
"'Sup, squirt." Robbie greeted Dipper as Dipper tried not to glare at him.
"Hey, Dipper!" Wendy greeted as Dipper's face suddenly grew a smile.
"Wendy! Ha ha…" Dipper laughed awkwardly as he walked backwards into the staircase. "Ow….Wh-What's up, guys?" Wendy walked inside with an embarrassed smile on her face.
"I left my jacket here." Wendy said as she walked into the living room. "Again." Dipper turned to see Wendy staring at Danny who was talking to Mabel. "Whoa, who are you?" Danny turned to give a dazzling smile to Wendy.
"I'm Danny. I'm going to be staying here for a little bit. What's your name?" Danny asked as Dipper could see. faint blush caress Wendy's cheeks.
"I-I'm Wendy. I work at the shack." Wendy said as Dipper could feel his heart squeeze.
"Oh, I guess I'll be seeing you around then." Danny said as he waved at Wendy. Wendy waved back, the pink on her cheeks becoming darker in color. Dipper turned around to see Robbie's sneer turn even nastier as he looked down at Dipper.
"What's with the candy? You're goin' trick-or-treating or something?" Robbie asked as Dipper looked embarrassed.
"Well actually I, uh —" Luckily, Dipper was saved as Wendy butt in with her jacket in her arms.
"Shut up, Robbie, of course he's not going trick-or-treating." Wendy said as she winked at Dipper. Dipper laughed nervously as he tried to hide the scrapbook.
"No! Uh, yeah." Dipper said nervously. "Trick-or-treating is for babies." Dipper watched as Danny walked into the room.
"Trick-or-treating is actually a tradition. It allows for the spirits of the dead to converse with the living in ways of giving both the living and the dead treats." Danny said as they all turned to him. "But last time I checked, it's summer, not fall." Dipper heard Wendy laugh as Robbie rose an eyebrow.
"Of course, it isn't. It's summerween. It's because the residents of Gravity falls loved Halloween so much, they decided on another ween." Wendy explained as Danny nodded.
"Then I would be super careful tonight then. If so many people all believe in the same thing, then it will come true." Danny said as he stood next to Dipper.
"Psh, that's impossible." Robbie said as Danny sighed.
"Then when you face the impossible, don't come crying to me. Plus, I've seen better goths than you." Danny smiled as Robbie growled. Dipper looked at Wendy who was staring at Danny with wide eyes. Something was bothering Dipper about this entire situation. Maybe Wendy liked Danny? But they just met and he had known Wendy longer so possibly that gave Dipper some brownie points.
"Hey, so there's going to be this party at a friend's house. You should come with Dipper and Mabel, of course." Wendy said wringing her hands.
"Sure. Dipper, is it alright if I come with you guys? I don't really know anyone in this town." Danny said while scratching the back of his neck.
"Yeah! Yeah, I think you could go with us." Dipper said as Danny smiled.
"Great." Danny said as he nodded to Robbie and Wendy.
"Awesome! It's at my friend's, Tambry's, place. It's at 9! Don't forget!" Wendy said as she and Robbie walked to the van and drove off.
"They seem nice." Danny said as he walked back inside with Dipper. Dipper frowned a bit before looking at Danny with a smile on his face.
"Yeah, Wendy is really cool." Dipper said, choosing to ignore Robbie for a bit. He knew that Danny understood and wouldn't comment on it.
"Well, are you going to tell your sister? I mean, she really loved Trick-or-treating." Dipper sighed knowing he was right. How was he going to tell Mabel? The one twin whom he never lied to anything about.
"Gosh darn it."
