A Tale Of Two Stans discussion thread. submitted by torky to GravityFalls

Westron 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago

It seemed a bit convenient that every major event in the Stan twins' lives (barring Stanford's time in the portal) could be covered in a single (but full!) half-hour episode. But, of course, it had to be! Why overcomplicate things?

The Stans are much younger than I expected. Let's do some quick math: Stanley was kicked out of the house towards the end of high school (say age 18). Ten years later (in 1982) he met his brother again for the first time. As of 'now', (2012), it's 30 years later, so that gnarled old coot who runs the mystery shack is... 58, born 1953/1954.

That's ten or twenty years younger than I expected. I mean, Dipper and Mabel were born "last day of the summer" of 1999 (as they turn 13 in 2012.) I was born seven years earlier than that, and 1953/54's about when some of my regular uncles were born! Stan's not even retirement age!

And if "Shermy" was that baby Stanmom was holding, then Shermy is, as of 2012, 40, with 12-year-old grandchildren, giving an average generation length of 14 years. Not likely.

It's more reasonable that Dipper and Mabel's father was born circa 1972, as that would make him old enough to have kids at a sensible age of 28, and still be old enough to have had a career in 1995-1998, when he went to that Windows 95 conference and got the floppy-disk shirt that Mabel now wears as pajamas. So I would guess that baby was him with his grandmother; unlike the Stans, who are younger than they look, let's say their parents were on the older side, had another son ten-ish years before the Stan twins, and that's the grandfather.

I really hope they don't underdeliver with the Bill Cipher business. So far everybody but nobody's talked him up as the most dangerous thing in or around the world, but all he's done in the show so far is not help Gideon and humiliate Dipper. But I'm optimistic. The season 1 finale is what really won me over to this show, and I have faith that they can top that.
