"Alright!" Mabel cheers. "Now, let's take a load off and eat our breakfast treats!"
Mabel plops her massive rear down a padded seat, grunting as she descends, her knees shaking and her back giving her grief.
"Don't get old, Gwen! " Mabel shakes her head. "If I was able to stay twelve forever, I would've!" She laughs, taking a bite of her sweet, syrupy taco!
"Yum!" Mabel drools. "So, tell me about yourself. You a mutant? Alien? Wizard? Mage?"
Mabel slams on the table.
"Hey, did you hear about that Wizard/Mage War? That was nuts! I always thought they were the same thing, guess they're different?! Like, how does that work?!" Mabel shrugs. "Okay, back to you. What's your deal, girl?!"

Gwen takes a bite of her taco and is almost knocked out of her seat by the incredible flavor of it. She had never tasted something so heavenly. Granted, she doesn’t really eat sweet things like this too often..maybe she should. “I was bitten by a radioactive spider while on a field trip with my best friend Peter. Next thing I know, I have these spider powers and a responsibility to protect our city from danger. I take it very seriously—I always want to stand up for the little guys..” her face falls for a second before picking back up again. “We have some wizards in our city, so I did hear a bit about that war. I think I got caught in one of their battles once when I was helping a friend, Stephen Strange.”
"But that was so crazy! I mean... Wizards have countries inside countries and Mages live secretly with us?! Or is it the other way around? No, I was right the first time!" Mabel laughs. "And that Clock Tower in London? When those dementor thingies destroyed it?! Wow! I did not expect to see that on the news!"
Mabel gets a hold of herself, taking in what Gwen was saying.
"Sorry, I get distracted really easy! Good thing I never had kids, huh?! Anyways, uh, that's really cool, taking on a responsibility like that. When I was your age, I was wearing Nacho Chips as earrings!"

“Yeah, those dementor things are pretty spooky. Certainly wouldn’t want to be caught in an alley with one of them!” Gwen shivers for a moment. “And I noticed those earlier. It’s a nice touch.” She smiles at Mabel again as she continues to munch on her waffle taco.

“I’m not sure I know what you mean..?” Gwen says with a confused tone. If she were paying attention, she would have realized her tone sounded a bit more mature. No longer was she the 19 year old superheroine, rather a 26 year old masters degree graduate. Her once slender frame was replaced with somewhat fuller curves, probably from all of those late nights studying mutant mythology and theory. Her bobbed hair was slightly longer too and her outfit was the perfect marriage between business and chic. She definitely looked the part of the young professor.

Gwen chuckles her perception shifting, “26, yes. I just got out of graduate school. It was awfully nice of Professor Xavier to offer me the position. It feels like years since I first came here to look around. In a sense I suppose it has!” She laughs again as she takes in the beauty of the campus. It’s fall, and the trees are turning their golds, organges, and reds. The breeze feels like a light caress on Gwen’s cheeks. “It really is a lovely place..”
"You were right before though." Mabel points out. "It's a strange place. After all, Gravity Falls is the Weirdness Capital of the world. We've got Gnomes, sentient candy, beefy cowmen, bears with a bunch of heads! This is a school for Mutants, Gwen, isn't that crazy how normal we are by comparison?! Anyways, we better get you to class. What're you teaching? Math? English? History? Interpretive Dance?!" Mabel giggles.

“I’m teaching mutant mythology today and then tomorrow is my feminist theory and critique course. I’m fairly excited about them both. I feel like I can bring some exciting energy to the academics here.” She smiles and hugs her books tight to her chest.
"Wow! Someone's a smarty!" Mabel lightly nudges Gwen in the shoulder with her bingo wing. "Hey, hope I'm not crossing bounds or something, but are you single? Cause a few of the teachers tonight are going to this bar and I can totally set you up with a hunk... or babe... or whatever it is you're into?"
Graunt Mabel is very open minded when it comes to sexuality!

Gwen blushes lightly..”I am single..and to be honest, I swing both ways, though I’ve certainly found more solace in women lately. Guys are just too boring for me.” She laughs again as they reach the English building. Gwen is getting so eager to start.
Another ringing headache afflicts the plump art teacher... yet, it didn't hurt as bad.
Like she was getting use to it?
As the piercing, sharp pinch ceased, Mabel smiles and comments...
"Well, that's just how a lot of guys are in there thirties, Gwen. Like Charles, he wouldn't stop talking about brandy! Gah! So freakin boring! But don't worry, I'm sure I'll find you a cutie your age." Mabel winks.
ark: Whooaaa that mattress scene

MeanMark: Right? I maintain the opinion that they should have showed some sort of process for the TF, but still a great scene nonetheless.

kappa: I feel like the point of that scene was a conversation towards her fears with monogamous long term relationship. The Aging was merely an extension personified, AND, in the backseat of what was really going on. A couple communicating.
