Many of you that are watching me, have probably seen this picture
depicting Bobby, Dipper and Wally as adults. this picture was somewhat spawned from an offhand comment I made about wondering what the three of them would look like. Kres took it upon himself to draw the image and I'm quite happy with the result.
The reason I had wanted to see this picture drawn, was, honestly, because I knew that Porcupine Passions 2 would be ending soon. Honestly, I feel confident enough in my skills as an audio story writer that I wanted to take on a bigger project. I considered doing something with Dipper and Bobby along the current timeline of The Beach Bears, but I quickly dropped that idea, since doing so would mean having to work around any and all ideas Dipper already had planned for the story.
I then thought about turning it into a story about Wally's past, since not much is really known about him, and I could write the script without it really affecting The Beach Bears at all, but when I realized the story would likely be rather depressing, owing to whats already been revealed about him in The Beach Bears, I decided against it.
This left me with only two alternatives: create an entirely new character (or set of characters) to make a story off that, or else go for a different timeline. I decided the easier of the two ideas was the latter, deciding to take the three 'cubs' of the story and make them into adults. That was where the picture came in.
Admittedly, I'm not sure what the exact plot of this is going to be just yet, only that it's going to involve the three of them forming their own music group, which will use the name that Dipper and I initially came up with for our cooperative music efforts, namely 'Fur The Love Of Mic.'
I'm not sure when, specifically, I will start on this project, only that it will be some time next year, after Porcupine Passions 2 is completed. I have decided, though, that this story is going to be an ongoing one, like The Beach Bears, rather than the short story type as I did with Porcupine Passions 1 and 2.
So, that being said, keep a lookout next year for my new story!
