Twelve years have passed since the events of Weirdmaggedon. All is peaceful and calm.... well, at least that's so in the small town of Gravity Falls, anyway. Pacifica Northwest is currently mayor, and Gideon Gleeful is trying to buyout the Mystery Shack from an aging Soos.
Recently, strange events, well, stranger than the norm that is, have started occurring all over the town. People have gone missing without a trace, kids have been leaving graffiti tags of a one-eyed triangle on the backs of buildings, and somewhere.... deep in the forest stands Bill's petrified body. It has been rumoured to call out strange riddles to passerby.
Meanwhile, in the Mindscape, tiny fragments are floating around.... slowly building power.... sparks of consciousness start to fire up..... the children of the demon shall soon rise....
Feel free to take the plot however you would like; I've left it open for multiple possible continuities here... for the characters: you may use pre-existing canon characters if you'd like, just make sure to keep them relevant to what's already canon in the actual series, as well as what has been said above in this RP's plot (for example; Pacifica's the mayor, but other than that, do what you'd like in terms of what she's done with her life btw the end of Weirdmaggedon and 'now'). You may also make new characters (ex. Dipper's kid(s)).
Shipping: This will go by 1st come 1st serve. If someone says their OC (original character) is the child of DipperxWendy, then that's the canon for this rp (if somebody already put two characters together and you still want to make an OC related to one or both of those characters, ask them nicely). Shipping is also allowed btw OCs here, but please no NSFW content, and keep it relevant to the plot.
Yup, it's implied in the plot above that Bill Cipher will have "children" of his own in this rp.... the idea I have for it, is that they were born from scattered remnants of Bill's ethereal form left behind from when he was shattered from existence, and that they will somehow end up resurrecting their "father". I will be making at least one OC as a child of Bill's, but if you'd like to use Bill himself (when it is appropriate to resurrect him in the plot) or another kid or two, that's ok.
NO overpowered characters (not even Bill's children or Bill himself upon return - remember, villains and heroes alike still have weak spots).
NO killing off characters without permission of the person using them. Ask first.
If your character is in a fight with another character someone else made, DO NOT manipulate their character for them (unless they asked you to take over their character). Do not say something like, "Bob grabbed Frank by his hair, and chucked him off a bridge. Frank fell all the way down." INSTEAD, say, "Bob grabbed Frank by the hair, and dragged him over to the edge of the bridge in an attempt to push him over" <<< this, will give the other person a chance to have their character respond to the situation. That being said, don't evade every attack that comes your character's way. They are not invincible.
When commenting in the rp, use *text here*. When commenting out of rp, if you have a question, need a recap, or something else, use brackets (text here).
You are allowed 3 main characters, and 2 NPCs. To clarify, 'main characters' are the ones you'll use most often. 'NPCs' are the lesser used characters that are just there to explain parts of the plot (ex. if a main character is calling the cops - an NPC might be the sheriff.... if a main character is babysitting some rando kid, that kid may be an NPC). Then there's the unnamed characters. They require no mentioning or anything until they appear in the rp - for example, some random dude a main character tries to save on the streets before they're petrified by Bill.
Hopefully that covers everything. If you have any questions or suggestions, please ask! We will start in a day or two, once we have at least five people participating. If not, this will be postponed to a later date.
Just a heads up, I have only until next Thursday, before I must go on a brief hiatus (hopefully less than two weeks). This is because I will be moving, and won't have wifi set up for at least a week - so, I will have to conserve my very limited phone data until then.
This means, I'll be here to start this rp if we get enough people, but you may have to continue this on without me (hence the very open plot with room to be taken in any direction).
(that being said, if this ends up continuing up until the time i get back, then I might be able to join back in - if not, please stay civil and respectful, and have fun with this!)

***You may reserve a canon character (ex. Bill) or a certain ship between canon characters (ex. Dipper x Wendy), or a "Child of Bill" (will be a limit of 4 only), for a maximum of 24 hours after reservation. This is for if you have a character in mind, are still making it, but want to make sure nobody takes it before you.
This will be measured by the timezone site linked below:
