Review:
This fic is very accessible to people unfamiliar with Gravity Falls canon, however its premise is a spoiler.

The horror and ugliness is worse than Gravity Falls canon, because the characters talk about what happens and deal with emotional fall-out on-screen, but also better because the main characters are adults. The ending is more bitter than sweet (and the AU sequels currently incomplete).

Overall, Blue Bayou's a fun fic about awkward criminals having scary adventures and (failing at) negotiating a relationship.
