The Hirsch Phenomenon (part 25)Mirra ran back to the Shack, with Alex close behind her.
"What just happened?" Alex called after her. "Why did you say that neither of us is the author?"
"I'll explain if it becomes necessary."
"Necessary!? If not telling me might prevent us from getting home, it's definitely necessary!"
Mirra ignored him and rushed into the Shack. Dipper and Soos looked up when they came in.
"Why do you guys always look like you want to kill each other?" Dipper asked them, apparently aware that they had been arguing. Mirra gave Dipper a worried glance. For a second, the only sound was the television, which was now playing a documentary on mermaids.
"Guys, look." Mirra started. She paused as if she was deciding what to say. "Something a bit concerning just happened and Alex didn't like my reaction to it/didn't understand it."
"Ok, why is this my fault again?" Alex asked. Dipper cleared his throat and took out a tape recorder. It played the last few seconds of the Gr
The Hirsch Phenomenon (part 24)Alex looked at Mirra as she nervously handed him the other paper. At first he thought he knew exactly what it was, but on closer inspection, he realized that this was much more dangerous. It was still the same color as the document he had thought it was at a glance, and it had the same general format. Except this was definitely not a letter he had sent to a fan. It had been changed. The picture of Dipper and Mabel in the top left corner had been smudged out, barely recognizable. It was not written in English; the letters were runes that reminded him of ancient Greek. But the most frightening thing was the drawing.
What had previously been a sketch Alex had drawn of himself holding puppets had been replaced with Entropy and his evil grin. Entropy was holding puppets as well, but they were not the same faces as in the original.
The puppets were them.
Alex stared at the image in horror for a second before handing the paper back to Mirra.
"He was listening to us." Mirra said.
The Hirsch Phenomenon (part 23)The Shack wasn't very exciting when Alex returned. Stan was getting ready for the first tour of the day, Mabel had gone off on a play-date with Candy and Grenda, and Dipper and Soos were watching television. It was a documentary about sasquach, and Dipper was half-heartedly taking notes while Soos joked and nudged him playfully. When Soos saw Alex come in, he bear hugged him and offered him the extra inch of space left on the couch. Alex declined and sat on the dinosaur skull instead. He tried to act natural as Soos asked him questions and directed jokes towards him. Alex figured that he'd have to get used to dealing with his characters in person, otherwise it would just be way too awkward.
Dipper had opened his book and started to browse its pages, probably looking for more information on bigfoot. Just then, Mirra burst through the door.
"Alex, I need to show you something." She looked both excited and nervous. She glanced at Dipper and Soos as they got up to fo
