Kiki's POV
I do not own Gravity Falls


“Hey, Dipper, did you ever think of what
everyone would do if you just randomly died tomorrow?” I asked.

“Um, no. Why would I think about that? … Wait, you’re not getting depressed again, are you?” The last question was asked rather frantically. I smirked and shook my head.

“I just like to be prepared for anything. It is quite possible that I could die in the next 24 hours.” I reassured him in a purposely non-reassuring way. He raised his eyebrows, and I started to sing:
“If I die young
Bury me in satin
Lay me down
On a bed of roses
Sink me in the river
At dawn
Send me away with the
Words of a love song”

Uh oh, uh oh


“What are you doing?” Dipper asked. My cheeks were warm. While everyone who heard me sing said that I had a good voice, I never really sing in front guys. But, maybe my reaction to this was because he was my soulmate.

“Making a point. Also, I love this song…
Lord make me a rainbow
I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you
When she stands under my colors
Oh, and
Life aint always what you think
It ought to be, no
Aint even gray
But she buries her baby

The sharp knife
Of a short life
Well,
I've had just enough time”


“Wait, are you cutting again? Please tell me you’re not. You ended up in the ward for weeks last time.” Dipper exclaimed. I shook my head.

“No worries, Dip. That ship sailed long ago.” I smiled then continued with the song.

“If I die young
Bury me in satin
Lay me down
On a bed of roses
Sink me in the river
At dawn
Send me away with the
Words of a love song

The sharp knife
Of a short life”

“Don’t you realize how much this would cost? You wouldn't even be able to die until I become a millionaire from all of my findings. Not that it would even be ok for you to die then.” Dipper protests.

“So you think my dad would let you pay for my funeral? He’d die too before that happened.” I countered. He shook his head in exasperation.

“Kiki, you are impossible.” He stated.

“Not impossible. Just musical!
Well,
I've had just enough time

And I'll be wearing white
When I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring
On my little cold finger
Never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was
Holding my hand”


Dipper reached out and grabbed my hand. I smirked at him again.

“Is there a point behind this?” He asked.

“I’m just telling you my post-mortem wishes. Is that weird?”

“Yes.”

“Oh well.
There's a boy here in town
Says he'll love me forever
Who woulda thought
Forever could be severed by...

The sharp knife
Of a short life
Well,
I've had just enough time”


Dipper’s cheeks went red.

“You do realize that, according to you, if anyone from your society heard this, we’d be killed, right?” He asked. I nodded.

“It’s worth the risk…
So put on your best boys
And I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts
Oh no,
I sell 'em for a dollar
They're worth so much more
After I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear
The words I've been singing'
Funny when you're dead
How people start listening”

“Kiki, when have I not listened to you?” Dipper asked.

“When I hinted to you that I wanted a puppy for my birthday.” I didn’t just hint to him. I flat out said: Can you get me a puppy for my birthday?

“I was broke. And besides, Mabel got you a kitten.”

“But I wanted a puppy…
If I die young
Bury me in satin
Lay me down
On a bed of roses
Sink me in the river
At dawn
Send me away with the
Words of a love song

Uh, oh,
The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears
Keep 'em in your pocket
Save 'em for a time when
You're really gonna need 'em”


Dipper gave me a bewildered look.

“So you dying isn’t the proper time to cry? Cause I thought you’d want me to cry…”

“Dipper, why would I ever want you to cry? I’m offended.” I gasped. He rolled his eyes.

“You know what I mean…”

“Do I?
The sharp knife
Of a short life
Well,
I've had just enough time

So put on your best boys
And I'll wear my pearls”


“Seriously, what the heck does that even mean? ‘Put on your best boys, and I’ll wear my pearls’. It doesn’t make sense” Dipper asked.

“Of course. That’s what you got from this song that I have just incorporated into a conversation…”

“No, I got that you think way too much about death, when you should be focusing on life." He said I rolled my eyes.

"Whatever..."
