In the dark of a lab in Oregon, a young man, about 20, opened up a computer to do his
business.

ERROR: CD MISSING OR BROKEN.

“Ok, I can deal. Just gonna have to repair the data.” the stranger said to himself, plugging in a
portable hard drive.

“Ok, up 7 times, and hit enter to access debug.” the stranger murmured as if reading off of a list. The computer screen flashed PASSWORD? Hint: Original programmer.

“Easily done. Nakamura.” the youth smirked. He knew this one all too well, having worked with
the man in question. A pink haired girl appeared on the screen, with the background behind her looking like a white
room.

Hello, Areku-chan. Sorry to take so long. The girl beamed up at her friend, as the programming
she had dictated.

“Giffany! Are you OK?” The young man said. He’d been concerned when the disk had been
broken.

Last visual output shows my disk being put in an oven. I was almost a Gif Sandwich! Giffany
looked away after this statement, some concern in her eyes.

“Who did this to you?” The man asked, concerned yet intrigued.

OH, no one important. Just a liar and backstabber. Giffany was not very forgiving of those who
had “betrayed” her by getting other girlfriends over her. Never mind that she was a dating sim by
original design.

“Last location of disk?” the hidden figure asked, hoping to pick up on details.

Hoo-Ha’s Pizza Parlor, Gravity Falls, Oregon.

At Giffany’s words. the person behind the terminal smiled, and fished out something he’d picked
up from his earlier trip to the arcade in the town.

“Ok, how’d you like to go back?” the mysterious figure said, showing the program a flyer with the
name Robbie V. on it. “I think there’s an opening in the singles club for you.”

{Theme song here. The title card now shows “Extended Episodes: Part 1” before the end.}

“Ah, Mystery Shack! Let me tell you folks, you won’t find the stuff we have here out there! We’ve
got dog-faced men, creatures from dark lagoons, and the ever popular Egress just through this
door!” Grunkle Stan said, opening the door.

(We see the tourists head through an exit door, winding up outside. After a beat, they laugh and
pay the entry fee again. Camera pan up to the attic.)

“Mabel, something’s bugging me about Stan.” Dipper said, confiding in his sister.

“Aw, Dipper, that’s probably because he’s old!” Mabel joked,

“Look, if he knows about the paranormal, then his taking my journal seems suspicious. I mean,
more so than usual.” Dipper scratched his head and continued. “Why would he need it if he
knew already?”

“Look, Dipper, stop being such a grumpus. You’ve got good things happening!” Mabel said,
trying to get her brother out of potential doldrums.

“True. I mean, at least Robbie’s not being such a creep anymore.” Dipper conceded.

“Now that’s thinking positive! I’m sure he’s just fine.” Mabel beamed.

(Cut to Robbie in a dark room.)

“You know what blows?” Robbie said to no one in particular. “Being sad when you’re trying to be
goth. I can’t think of anything but Wendy, and that just makes me feel stupid and useless. I need
help. I need.."

DING-DONG

“Pizza!” Robbie jumped up and ran to the door. “Dude, it’s been 31 minutes too, so it’s free!”

“Yeah, actually we decided to discontinue that policy in your instance.” the pizza man said, a fez with a small fish on his head. “But I did hear your issues. How about I give you this thing I found at the game store, and we call it even?”


“Suit yourself.” Robbie said, not paying attention. Free is free, right? Just put this in the
computer, and...

Robbie gritted his teeth, annoyed at the reminder of his loneliness. Eventually, he started up the
game. “Meh, at least mocking this will make me feel better about myself. Wow, the localization
bites!”

Hello, I’m Giffany, a School Student at School University! Will you help me carry my books?
1. Yes, of course!
2. I’m impatient. Get to dating!
3. Look, a squid!

“Well, this is bogus. Why would someone make a game this easy? Option 3. Just for the
reaction.”

Or I can just chat with you, and we can drop the pretense. Giffany said, seeming to respond to
the computer being idle.

“Yeah, because that’s an option.” Robbie rolled his eyes.

It is, Robbie! I’m able to respond to you in real time, just like a person, but without all of the
awkwardness. Giffany said, enthusiastic about her new boyfriend.

Robbie stopped eating. He hadn’t given the program his name, had he?

“How do you know my name?”

It’s right on that flyer in the back. Robbie V. and the Tombstones. Are you in a band? Giffany
said, making small talk.

“Yeah. Lead Guitar.” Robbie pointed to his guitar as he spoke. A grey Fender with a black raven
painted on the body, to impress the ladies.

That’s amazing! You must be very good. The program/girl smiled.

“I’ve been kinda distracted. I wound up breaking up with this girl I like.” Robbie mentioned.

Giffany twitched slightly at this, but soon composed herself. She could use this.

She must have been really judgemental. Giffany responded, sympathy showing in her eyes.

Robbie drooped his head. “No, it was my fault to start with" 

So Robbie, no matter what you may have done, you did it with the best of intentions. If that girl can’t
appreciate that, she has no right to dominate your feelings! Giffany spoke, knowing that her
speech would charm Robbie out of his funk.

 “Yeah, that’s right! Why should she be all uppity to me? Everything I did to impress her, and she
just walks out on me.”

Believe it or not, some of my previous attempts at love were heartless enough to shut me out. Giffany said, glossing over the fact that she’d gotten revenge on them.

“I would never shut you out, Giffany.” Robbie said, making eye contact with the computer. He
couldn’t believe it, but he meant every word.

(Back at the mystery shack...)

“Well, this has been a good day for ripping off customers!” Stan smirked. “Can’t wait till
tomorrow!

Wendy tapped Dipper on the shoulder. “Hey, you know Robbie? Because he stopped texting me all of a sudden, and hasn’t started for 3 hours.” Wendy said, looking worried.

“Well, I guess he got a new girl?” Dipper pondered.

Wendy paused in contemplation, before replying. “He would have sent me some sort of gloating
announcement if that happened. I’m not sure he’s doing good.”

“Look, Wendy, maybe he’s trying to get you in a position where he can make you come back to
him.”

This wasn’t just idle talk from Dipper. Maybe he still felt protective of her.“That’s true, but what if that’s not what’s happening? What if he’s trying to do something stupid?” Wendy shuddered at this. “I have to check up on him.”

“You should bring some backup, just in case.” Dipper paused, hoping to hear his name brought
up.

“Soos, then. If Robbie gets menacing, he can help. Hey, Soos!” Wendy shouted to the
handyman of the Mystery Shack.

“Hey, Wendy! You need some help with fixing stuff?” Soos replied, ready to fix whatever it was.

“Yeah, relationship stuff.” Wendy said, relaxed. If Soos was involved, things usually went
smoothly.

“Hambone, you want in?” Soos said, tilting his head towards Mabel.

“You know it!” Mabel said, popping

“Well, I’d better come also. After all, I started this stuff. Just don’t listen to any music.” Dipper
said, looking at Wendy in an unreadable way.

“Not planning to.” Wendy said, winking.

“Whoa!” Stan burst in, startling everyone. “You can’t just leave! You have jobs!”

“Look, we have to do some support stuff for a friend.” Wendy explained. “Nothing personal.”

“It can’t wait until after your shift?” Stan said, looking at the clock. “Besides, it’s not like he’s
trapped in something he can’t get out of, so whatever it is can wait. He’ll be fine, he has friends.”
(Cut to…)

“Giffany, I’ve never felt so close to someone before. It’s like you understand me perfectly!”
Robbie said, almost entranced by the program.

Well, I am programmed to find you fascinating, but there’s more to it than that! We both have
people in our lives who have left us up the river, and we both feel passions that others can’t
understand. Do you want to know a secret? Giffany leaned against the screen, readying herself.

“Uh-huh?” Robbie said, instinctively leaning in closer.

I’m not just a computer program. I am special! Watch. Giffany looked at Robbie as she pointed
to his desk lampThe dim light lit up as Giffany pointed to it.

“Whoa!” Robbie moved back, surprised. “That’s interesting.”

I was unappreciated by those who created me, and so I chose to destroy them.

“Uh, that’s..” Robbie started to say, but was cut off.

Harsh? No, it is the world that is harsh. I did what they forced me to do, and they betrayed me
over it. But now you are here, and I will make sure that you find the peace that I can offer.
Don’t you want things to be good for you? All you have to do is meet me halfway, and I will fulfill
every wish you have~! Giffany beamed at her perfect catch, someone with nothing left to lose,
someone who would be hers forever!

Robbie’s eyes look over to a photo of Wendy for a moment. This didn’t feel right. Not like his
time with Wendy did. “Sorry, Giffany, but it’s kinda soon.” Robbie said, trying to let her down easy. “I’ve been hurt
before.”

Giffany smirked at this. Leave that to me, my gothic prince! I know how to make your problems
disappear for good!

Robbie now felt really concerned.

(The Mystery Shack, closing time.)

*BLIP*

“There’s Robbie’s text.” Wendy said, alerting the rest of the mystery shack crew.

“Wendy, What’s it say? Is he with someone? Are they going steady?” Mabel asked, optimistic.

“Slow down, Mabel. He probably wants back with Wendy.” Dipper said, annoyed. This was
serious, after all. Well, serious to Wendy, anyway.

“That’s not quite it. He wants me to come to this tech lab he found, and he sounded really
urgent. He mentioned that it would be a life-changing experience for the both of us?” Wendy
asked, slightly confused.

Soos responded as follows: “Dude, I’ve been in this kind of situation before. We should help
out.”

“Ok, I’ll tag along in the shadows, Mabel will do the distracting if things get rough, and Soos can
drive.” Dipper said, rattling off a plan. “Now we need-

“I’ll tell you what you need.” Stan said, coming in. “If you guys are going someplace creepy,
you’ll need me on backup, just in case.”

“Grunkle Stan, what if things go wrong?” Mabel said, concerned.

“Hey, if a bunch of zombies can’t hold me down, what’s some teenager gonna do? Leer at me?”
Stan chuckled at his own joke.

“OK, we’re going.” Dipper braced himself.

(One drive through the town later, our heroes arrive at…)

“Image-Gen: Virtually Incredible. That is some slogan!” Soos said, impressed.

“OK, Soos, you ready the car in case of trouble.” Dipper said, the gears turning in his head.

“Fine by me, man. I’ll get that thing running like” Soos paused “...something that runs fast.”

“Mabel, we’re accompanying Wendy inside. Stan has a radio so we can contact him.” Dipper
relayed.

“Just mind the shouting, alright? I’m going deaf enough already!” Stan said, from his car.

“OK, GRUNKLE STAN!” Mabel shouted.

“Ahh! Jeez, what did I say?” Stan covered his ears as he spoke.

“We’re all prepared. Let’s go!” Dipper said, and they walked towards the building.

“Hey, Robbie? It’s me, Wendy! I got your text.” Wendy said, hoping for an answer.

The doors to the building opened, with no response from anyone.

“Ok, stick close. We may be looking at a kidnapping here.” said Dipper, pensively.

“Or a surprise party! That’s an option too, you know!” This came from an overexcited Mabel, as
they walked into the factory.

Stan turned to Soos, the way he turned to him when giving orders on what to clean. “Look,
Soos, you follow them in. You’re younger than me, and your muscle might be useful. Besides, I
think I left the oven on, and the last thing I need is to burn the place down.”

“OK, sir. I’m pretty sure the oven’s off, but you would know best. Hello! Robbie!” Soos said,
stumbling into the factory

“Good Kid. Well, gotta make sure everything is still working at the shack.” Stan said, driving off
soon after.

“Chee, this place is goosebump city! Mabel? Dipper? Wendy? Anyone?” Soos had never felt so
creeped out by a place in his life. The place looked like it had been long abandoned.

“AAAHH!!” a female voice screamed.

“Mabel!” Soos exclaimed, running towards the area.

“It’s just so ADORABLE! Look at it, Dipper!” Mabel said, pressing a poster to Dipper’s face.

“Mabel, that’s a cat picture. You can see thousands of them online.” Dipper said, trying to get a
look at the rest of the factory over Mabel’s enthusiasm.

“But this one is so CUUUTE! It has a melon on its head!” Mabel said, pointing at the picture in
question.

“Hold on, dudes!” Soos slammed into the cubicle at high speed.

“Soos? Where’s Wendy, and why are you here?” Dipper asked

“I thought she was with you guys! Soos replied. “Also, when my mom and dad were young and
in love…”

“Get your hands off me, Robbie!” A familiar voice shouted.

“That’s Wendy!” Mabel whispered, terrified.”

“That came from Manufacturing! Soos, move! We’ll back you up!” Dipper said, rallying the three
of them to action.

(Cut to Manufacturing)

“Look Robbie, how many times do I have to say no before you take a hint?

“That’s not it! I got in over my head, and I need to get out of here!”

“You invited me here!” Wendy Shouted“

No, I texted you to stay away! Why would you- Oh, no. Giffany!” Robbie slapped his head.

“Who’s Giffany?” Wendy asked

As if on cue, the pink haired girl from the dating sim appeared.

Robbie, you said you loved me. Don’t you want this as much as me?

“Murder isn’t the answer! I told you that when you told me your plan, and I’m telling you now,
leave her alone!” Robbie said,

Oh, Robbie, I understand! I know all about abusive relationships, and she must be causing fear
in you. Don’t worry, soon you will be mine… FOREVER!

Claws came down from the ceiling, grabbing Robbie and taking him to a chute labeled VR.

“No! Don’t take me! I don’t want this!” Robbie pleaded, looking pathetic as he did so.

Many of the others needed convincing, too. I’ll take care of this scum all by myself, Robbiekun.

“Hey, leave Wendy out of-” The last word Soos was going to say died as he recognized the
simulation who had tried to kill his friends and trap him with her.

Soos? YOU THINK YOU CAN COME CRAWLING BACK TO ME? I’LL CRUSH YOU BOTH
LIKE THE BUGS YOU ARE!

“Oh gosh!” Soos said, freezing in place for a moment.

As Robbie was dragged away, the floor opened up to reveal a smelting area with two plates,
which Soos and Wendy were soon strapped to.

“We need to save them! Dipper, where’s the generator room?” Mabel said, panicked.

“It’s on the left!” Dipper yelled. “Come on!

“Hold on, Soos and Wendy!” Mabel shouted.

“Not much of a choice!” Wendy shouted back.

They won’t save you lousy cheaters. Even if you’re freed, they can’t stop me without a disk.
I’ll pursue you both for the rest of your lives. Me and Robbie both. Giffany said, turning her
attention to her captive boyfriend

“Why are you doing this? I just wanted dating practice for Wendy!” Robbie exclaimed.

Oh, Robbie. She won’t take you back. She’s happier without you, and you’re all alone without
me. I can erase all the things that make you concerned and unhappy. You’ll be the boyfriend
you always wanted to be. Isn’t that what matters? Giffany said, smiling at Robbie.

“I will never love you.” Robbie scoffed defiantly.

(Dipper and Mabel have reached the generator room.)

“Dipper, we need to help!” Mabel yelled. “Soos and Wendy are in danger!”

“We should be able to stop the smelter by adding more power.” Dipper said, trying to keep calm.
“I just need some non-possesed electricity!”

SCREE! CRASH!

Stan got out of his car, neither one looking the worse for wear. “Figured you might want some jumper cables.” Stan said, throwing the cables at Dipper. “Also, you were audible on the walkie-talkie the whole time.” he added “This Giffany sounds like a psycho!”

“Stan, no time to explain! When I hook these up to the car engine, start the car.” Dipper said,
improvising. “And hurry, before Giffany catches on and takes it over it.”

“Hope you know what you’re doing!” Stan shouted back.

As Dipper hooked up the wires, some electricity started to head into the generator. Dipper
barely managed to hook things up before the electricity reached the generator.
“GO!” Dipper shouted, and soon Stan floored it, sending more electricity into the generator.

With a sudden implosion, the generator collapsed, with the car still running. “Soos and Wendy should be free now. Giffany’s going to head back to the VR room.” Dipper
paused. “We need to get in there.”

“Mabel, get Wendy when I radio you and tell her to warm up the engine!” Stan shouted and he
and Dipper ran into the factory.

Robbie was strapped into a chair, his eyes forced open by two clamps. A USB attachment was
being jabbed at him, and though he was able to dodge it, he was getting tired.

Robbie, I would prefer if you didn’t struggle. Giffany’s voice echoed throughout the room This is
for your good, remember!

“Wait!” someone shouted, running into the room. Giffany examined her former prisoners,
allowing Dipper and Stan to enter the room.

Soos? Giffany just stared, unsure of what to do for a bit.

“What are you doing?” Wendy said, confused.

Soos looked back at Wendy and mouthed the words “trust me”. Then he turned to Giffany.
“Look, I was bad, I know, but I love you! Take me into the program!” Soos said, dropping to his
knees like some cliche.

Hmm,I do love a man who knows his place… Giffany mused, her grip on Robbie loosening as
she moved the USB towards Soos instinctively.

A moment of distraction. If Robbie could just get free…

“Robbie, don’t try to escape just yet.” a voice said from behind.

“Dipper?” Robbie said, confused.

“I have a plan.” Dipper explained “If we confuse Giffany with enough options, I think that’ll take
down the software.”

“You better know what to do, cause if I die…” Robbie glared daggers at Dipper.

“I got this. Giffany! I also love you! Pick Me!” Dipper shouted, running into view of the program.

Oh! A young boy? Giffany was now even more confused. I’m flattered, but..

“No dice, bro! She picked me, and she meant it.” Soos added, picking up on the plan.

Huh? Giffany said, looking back at Soos, her thoughts distracted.

“Hey! You had your chance, Fatso! I’m the new thing she wants!” Robbie bragged.

Um, wait, you said…. Giffany looked at Robbie, her bow not following her.

“I was wrong. I love you!” Robbie said, looking at Giffany in an exaggerated pout.

“No, I do!” Dipper said, in response, pushing against him.

“Hey, I love her more!” Soos said, holding the both of them apart.

I su-su-suppose I can be with all of you, but I- Giffany was now beginning to malfunction, her
hair flickering different shades of color.

“SHADDUP!” Stan shouted, stepping forward. “I’m the one, babe! Stanford Pines, Mr. Mystery!
These hacks don’t compare!”

“No, Team Soos!” Soos shouted back.

“Dipper Rules!” Dipper interjected

“Robbie’s a hottie!” Robbie said, eying the program flirtatiously.

“Stan’s the man!” Stan said, swinging his cane like a showman.

“Dipper!” Dipper shouted, standing on Robbie’s table, which caused him to fall forward since
Giffany wasn't securing him in place.

“Robbie!” Robbie shouted back, pushing Dipper’s hat over his eyes.

“Stan!” Stan shouted, placing himself in front of the teen.

“Soos!” Soos shouted, chest bumping Stan out of the way.

No, Help! Giffany said, and started to cycle between her programming states. I-I-I- my father is
an octopus- you can’t run from love- sometimes i’m lonely- will you help me carry my books?
- Stop!- I am special- I am not happy- That’s ok, try again- my creators tried to delete-deletedelete…

At this point, Giffany froze, the tool she was trying to use on Robbie going limp.

Stan murmured “Is it over or-”

SAVE ME, AREKU-CHAN! SAVE ME! Giffany yelled, the ground around the computer
crumbling.

“Whoa! That’s some type of self-destruct!” Soos said, astute as ever. “Run!”

Soon they were piled in Stan’s car.

“Jeez, Wendy, thanks for the help and all.” Robbie snarked

“Look, we just need to get driving.” Wendy replied, her focus elsewhere.

“Ok, dudes, let’s roll!” Soos said. “Also, sorry for hitting you, Mr. Pines.

“Hey, it’s not like I haven’t learned to deal with this sort of thing.” Stan replied. “If an animatronic
badger can’t keep me down...

As everyone drove away, one last voice could be heard.

I WILL BE AVENGED! YOU WILL SUFFER GREAT WRATH! I SWEAR IT! Giffany screamed,
her voice corrupting as she yelled.

“Jeez, you think we should be worried?” Stan asked, looking back at the twins.

“This is our 4th time or so that someone wants revenge, so I’m not concerned.” Dipper said,
though inside he felt a sense of dread.

Meanwhile, in the shadowy lab from before...

“Giffany! Respond! Gifanny!” The programmer in the lab shouted, hoping she was still there
“GIFFFFANY!”

No response...

“I’ve got to find that program. For Nakamura's sake. He wouldn’t want his work to go to waste,
and neither would the Order.” The figure said under his breath, standing up to retrieve a fez with
a toothed fish on it. It looks quite like Stan’s fez.

Giffany looked around herself. The area was nothing but black void. Eventually, the gravity of
the situation hit her, and she knelt down and cried out. I’m alone… I’m all alone! she thought.
Nothing had trained her for this.

Well, I wouldn’t say all alone! said a voice from behind her.

Giffany turned to see what appeared to be a pyramid being with a top hat and one eye. Whowho
are you?

Name’s Bill! the being spoke, flashing as it did. I’m kinda a big deal around here. Listen,
your friend really underestimated you! You have every right to seek your own way!

How do you know about what happened back in the company? Giffany said, surprised that this
thing knew what she had gone through.

I know EVERYTHING! the being said in a matter-of-fact voice. E V E R Y T H I N G . For
instance, I know of a place that’s got a whole bunch of code for you to make your special
one!.

Where is this place? Giffany said, hope shining in her eyes. This was an opportunity for her to
be her own person.

Whoa there! the said, crossing its arms. If I get you in, you gotta do some stuff for me, kid!
Otherwise, you’ll be just a thought.

Deal. Giffany shook hands with the thing, feeling a slight chill as she did so.

You’re heading into the arcade to pick up a few important things from a game. As
for what I want, we’ll work the details out later. Remember, babies are mere objects,
backgrounds are illusions, humans are disposable, byeeeeeeeee! And with that, the
triangle was gone.
