The story of Wally, Dipper and Bobby as adults begins with Wally giving a bit of background on what's happened in the last 15 years.
Originally, this story was going to be one of two things. It would wither have been about Wally's backstory, prior to meeting Birch, or about Wally with Bobby and Dipper as adults. I decided to go with the latter to make it a more enjoyable story.
I decided to start things off in this story by having the three main characters tell a bit about the past, and chose to start with Wally because he was only a minor character when used in The Beach Bears. I'm really pleased with how the first chapter chapter came out, and I paired the chapter with one of my favorite songs from Oliver and Company because the day I first wrote the chapter, I had the song running through my head. I thought it was a good idea, so I went with it. It was also really nice that I got the help from so many of my friends, which made it even more enjoyable,
