  • I think it's a very good possibility he is the author of the journals. Think about it, lots of details we have learned about the potential author so far have matched or almost matched McGucket. In the episode "Into the Bunker" Soos found a laptop marked "Property of F" on it, and at the end of the episode "Little Dipper" it was revealed that Old Man McGucket's full name is Fiddleferd H. McGucket. Also, I'm pretty sure you've all noticed the cast that Old Man McGucket always wears on his arm. Well, the author of the journals had six fingers, but maybe they lost one of them somehow which would explain why them wearing a cast the wat Old Man McGguckt wears a cast. That's my thoughts on why McGucket may be the author. If you agree with me, tell me why you agree, and if you disagree then tell me why you disagree and who you think the potential author of the journals is.

    • Yes, because of the cryptogram at the end of Golf Wars. (OLAD MAN SLEEPING ON THE GREEN, or something like that.) And all the stuff you said. :)

    • Sorry for my attitude but this would be a better answer hello do you want to join me finding the secrets of gravity falls I am trying to make a very good team out there and yes I do think he is if you look at my blog I wrote the exact same thing

    • At first, I was thinking the same thing. But then again, you can never be sure of anything in Gravity Falls.:))

      I noticed the things you pointed out as well, but then I saw that Old Man McGucket only has five fingers, not six. Your reason for that is possible, but if he lost a finger, wouldn't the cast be over and covering his fingers?

      Not saying that he can't be the author, but that it's possible he could or couldn't be. Like I said earlier, you can never be sure.;)

      One thing I know is that f could not mean his name it could be something else you can never be sure

    • Yes! I think so. He's very old, possibly the oldest resident in Gravity Falls, and the books were clearly written quite some time ago, what with the food storage in the bunker. He always has his right hand covered by sports tape, maybe to hide a 6th finger. As explained above, the laptop belonged to "F" and he also seems to be very good at building robots and mechanisms like the Gobblewonker or the shame bot. He might have also built the shape shifter or the all-knowing mailbox

    • i noticed only certain characters have 5 fingers while everyone else has 4, it could be an artistic choice since some characters have it some doesnt, it could have something to do with age (since people with 5 fingers are soos stan the boy band and mcgucket and everyone from robbie to dipper have 4) or it could be something else entirely.

      the reason im not too sure about the age thing is that tyler the biker or whatever his name was has 3 or 4 fingers im not too sure, and he is technically an adult.


      as for property of 'F'

      the space provided doesnt seem long enough for mcgucket's name it could be initials, it could be something like property of FBI (FBI as an expample) it could be a name of a lab or something so our only lead is the fact that the old man's first name starts with F.


      i always had the same theory as you about the old man and while i have brought this up in debates on tumblr and the sorts, i still wonder sometimes, i always believed that he was the writer and it would make a lot of sense, yet i wonder if there are somethings that we looked over, i mean all the answers are right here infront of us we just need to put them together.

    • honestly about the 5 fingers thing i like to think that if they have 5 fingers they are part of the society because Mabel and Dipper just recently came to gravity falls so they would have no way of knowing about the society and maybe at a certain age they join the society they inexplicably get another finger because here 800px-S1e7_Wendy_Family_Photo.png on the left the kid has 3 fingers not showing thumb, but here http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m9dnjcBFOO1qb45vco1_500.pnghe has 5 fingers meaning at his age he joined the society of course then the women must not ever join the society because all of them have 4 fingers

      or it is just artistic choice or measured by manliness

      and i honestly would want to think that stanley was the one that wrote the journal but the property of F proves against it, but what if Stan and Stanley were secretly triplets  and their triplet's name had an F in it and each of them wrote a journal

      That would probably mean Stan wrote the first one because we never learned how he got that one, and then the they got in some fight and stopped writing the journals and hid them

      but i think Alex Hirsch probably is leading us off course with the Old Man McGucket thing because having it be him would be too predictable

    • the old man actually removes his cast in an episode if my memory isnt failing me.

      i read somewhere about a theory that the fingers represent power, for example gideon had the journal and quite a bit of info has 5 fingers, there was a cipher that said something along the lines of the handy man is not what he seems or knows more than he lets on im not too sure and he has 5 fingers, they somehow also linked it to how he didnt turn into a mindless zombie when he was bitten.

      they back up the theory with the fact that the writer has 6 fingers since he would technically be the most powerful one but i think if that was the case maybe it's to do with knowledge, all these dudes know a whole lot even if in the case of soos they dont seem like they know much.

      i want to believe its an artistic choice if it wasnt for the fact that they emphasis it with the 6 fingered glove stan wore.

      the theory of knowledge and power though fall short because the boy band also had 5 fingers but idk since they are clones.

    • bill cipher has 4 fingers and he seems to have a lot of power you can see in the top left corner

      and yes but that means that the 6 fingered author had been living in the shack probably and thats why i think it would be stanley but then wouldnt stan have been able to get the journals better, and then what about property of F

    • yes but bill is not human

      it could be a possibility that stan knows the author or lived with him but i dont think he is the author since he was shocked about the invisible ink writing.

      stan knows quite a lot though you would think nothing circling the journals would suprise him but he keeps proving that there are things he doesnt know.

      the closest to the author stan theory would be either he has amnesia about writing them or something or the clone/stan twin idea that one of them was the writer but even that is a little farfetched.

    • Yes I do think think that FIDLFERD H. MCGUCKET *HINT* is the author of the journal. Watch the end of the episode "little dipper or read about it on my wiki. Its really cool.
                   AND REMEMBER "this belongs to F"

    • I think Alex Hirsch might be purposfully hyping McGucket being the author to suprise us when it's someone else.

    • yeah i agree

    • And to think that only the very perceptive suspect McGucket. It would be just the thing they'd pull to make someone else the author wouldn't it?

      Maybe, but I dunno. Even the great Alex Hirsch can't always have an extra trick up his sleeve.

    • I write this about my A good thing i want to tell you here discussion. The disscussion is here:https://gravityfalls.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:187902 I am using a different account becuase i can,t login to my earlier account Fozylux but i am the same person. I post this is in of your disscussions becuase you don,t want to post in any disscussion someone has created later then this disscussion. The creators can,t create any tv show better then pretty good now becuase they are worse poeple and dumber then they was when they created the Gravity Falls episodes they have created. They can,t create nothing close to a best amazing tv show which Gravity Falls is considered. I telling you a way you can make your life less or more then a medium amount better and you don,t do it. This says that you on this forum are weird becuase any person that have watched Gravity Falls, doesn,t love Gravity Falls less and isn,t weird would do this. If you wouldn,t be weird you would be dumb becuase a person that isn,t dumb does understand that this works. If you think creating one episode makes your life very different you have wrong. Yes if you don,t love Gravity Falls less you could not reply to this but then you don,t think you can make the world better and you only are living to make your life better. You do post on this forum a medium amount, upload images and watch Gravity Falls but you don,t think you are so interested in Gravity Falls that you can create one Gravity Falls Season 3 episode to get less or more then a medium amount of money from it and feel better. I can understand why you wouldn,t want to create multiple episodes. I can,t understand why you do want to create one episode that won,t be one of your favourite episodes but a episode you probably want to watch more then other episodes. The thing that so terrible such as that the creators don,t creating Gravity Falls Season 3 has happened but thanks to internet, Gravity Falls being considered the best cartoon ever and that a Gravity Falls episode you create in the rigth way won,t be protected by copyrigth makes it so poeple lives can be close to being as good as they would be if the creators was creating Gravity Falls Season 3 and you still don,t to do it. You don,t even do things that most poeple would do if they didn,t want to do it such as telling me why you don,t do it. I am sorry if i make you feel worse by writing this but there no other way i can make you create Gravity Falls Season 3 Episode 1 becuase you are weird. If you don,t love Gravity Falls less i want you for the world, you and me do to post that you want to create Gravity Falls Season 3 Episode 1 and if you don,t you are doing a bad thing for the world.
