"alright. The other day I saw a image on the all-powerful internet that was a quick snapshot of one of the scenes in the Gravity falls theme song. It's the part where dipper, Mabel, and Grunkle Stan are looking at the footprint. There is a brief flash of lightning and the character's shadows can be seen. dipper and Mabel's shadows look normal but Grunkle Stan's looks...off. Maybe you can come up with an explanation?"
Yeah, I totally can! So this is the scene in question, correct?
Here, it appears that Mabel and Dipper's shadows are of the norm, but Grunkle Stan's is... Different. Rumor had it that this was a wing, possibly even a demon's wing.
And because of these scene during Gideon Rises...
It could have been interpreted as further proof that the show was trying to allude to the fact that Stan was actual a demon of some sorts.
But I am here to tell you that that is not the case! It is, in fact, the shadow of the umbrella, as you can see here:
And likewise, this is Grunkle Stan's silhouette (what is not covered by the tree's shadow, anyway):
However, this may have been part of the inspiration for the Monster Falls AU, in which Grunkle Stan is a gargoyle.
And that's pretty much it! // kimiko hope
