What it says on the tin.
Dipper and Mabel Pines were shipped off to their uncle's tourist trap in The Middle of Nowhere, AKA Gravity Falls, Oregon. They were expecting a boring routine of work, mosquito bites, and heat. As it turned out, the woods were filled with all sorts of creatures, some beyond imagination, some the embodiment of myths.
Their uncle being a supernatural expert and rather decent mage also tends to draw out some of the more interesting denizens of the ancient Gravity Falls wood.
It isn't completely necessary to read the prequel to this, you just might be a little confused over a few things that had been established.

- Part 2 of a slightly different Reverse Portal AU
Ghost is shaken after trying to give Myla a Delicate Flower. They chance upon Quirrel in Crystal Peak, and the two listen to the crystals- and each other.
Quirrel gives Ghost emotional support.
Dipper and Mabel Pines were sent to Gravity Falls by their parents for some “fresh air”; and they were to live with their nerdy genius uncle who had set up a tourist trap there 15 years ago.
Little did the twins know what supernatural shenanigans their trip would entail.
My take on the Reverse Portal AU, where Ford knows magic and is just an uncle. He also already used the unicorn spell to protect the shack. Other changes I made are in the Notes!
Chapter 2 isn’t entirely necessary, it was just me wanting to expand on both Ford’s knowledge of wards (I like to imagine he would give Dipper and Mabel’s room some kind of magical protection), and his trauma regarding his past with Bill.

Living through the story of Gravity Falls during the summer of Dipper and Mabel's 13th birthday seems like a daunting task. Especially if one has never said a word in their life.
CURRENTLY BEING REWRITTEN
Welcome to my take on the Reverse Portal AU! As described in the tags, Soos and Melody are switched, Ford is Dipper and Mabel’s uncle, and it has been 15 years since Stan was sucked into the portal.
Also, Melody is trans MTF (although it won’t rly come up that often) and Ford is homoromantic ace (also won’t rly come up) because these are my headcanons. Don’t like, don’t read.
