Journal #1 is a cryptic journal owned by the Author, currently owned by Stan Pines. It is the first in a series of books, including Journal 2 (formerly owned by Gideon Gleeful, later by Stan Pines) and Journal 3 (owned by Dipper Pines). There is not much known about the contents of the journal.

History

Over thirty years before Dipper and Mabel Pines' arrival in Gravity Falls, the mysterious and unknown author of the three journals documented unknown information on the strange and paranormal activities of Gravity Falls. Out of paranoia he was being watched, the author hid his three books in various areas of the town, hoping to keep their knowledge separate to prevent the opening of the Universe portal. Some time later, Journal 1 found its way to the possession of Stan Pines, thus beginning his quest to reunite all three.

The journal first makes an appearance in "Gideon Rises," in which Stan reveals himself to be its owner, and uses the other journals to activate the Universe Portal beneath the Mystery Shack.

In "Scary-oke," the book makes a reappearance as Stan continues his plans, plotting to keep his project and journals hidden from the twins.

In "Not What He Seems", when Dipper, Mabel, and Soos go to Stan's basement, they discover that Stan has both Journal 1 and Journal 2.

NOT NATURALLY OCURRING?

Note: it is actually spelled as "ocurring" in the text. So far, this is the only spelling or grammar error in any of the journals.

When placed together with the other two journals, it completes a warning written in invisible ink (the bold is the contents of Journal 1)

The machine was meant to create knowledge but it is too powerful! The device, if fully operational could tear our universe apart! I was wrong the whole time! It must not fall into the wrong hands. If the clock ever reaches zero our universe is doomed! Total global destruction!

Journal 1's cover is burgundy and has various rips and tears, most noticeably a large piece missing in the upper right hand corner. It has two gold binder lines on its spine, and its three remaining corner-covers are gold as well. In the center of the cover is a gold hand with six fingers, with the number 1 written in black in the middle.
