Rebecca Parham makes a riddle in a Gravity Falls themed animation.


Hello Rachel dear,
No need to shake hands.
You know my name well,
And for you, I have plans.
On this day of days,
You came to this dimension.
So for you, birthday girl,
I've got diverting intentions.
Your gift remains locked,
In a prison most strange.
To decipher the code,
Symbols must be arranged.
Just five little letters,
Just one little word.
Though I will not speak it,
It's one that you've heard.
Rack your brain over,
And your sister's brain, too.
For what word she might conjure
That's familiar to you.
Is it horse? Is it David?
Might it even be Abbey?
Or maybe with codes,
And ciphers you're savvy.
You may think your sweet Mabel,
Is the answer you seek,
But alack, she is not,
Though her name is a key.
Recall this phrase of odd design.
This clue, our game will sweeten.
Old illusions drift away,
When hollow fears are beaten.

Important poem lines

You may think your sweet Mabel,
Is the answer you seek,
But alack, she is not,
Though her name is a key,

Recall this phrase of odd design,
(This clue our game will sweeten,)
"Old illusions drift away,
When hollow fears are beaten."


Rachel's birthday

Rebecca wrote her sister, Rachel, a poem with a secret code to help her figure out what 5-letter word unlocks the puzzle pod. The items were basically a gift for her which was given on her birthday. She liked it, and she eventually figured it out, but Rebecca got impatient, giving her a hint, so that she could open it on her birthday.


Most people claim that the answer is "Mabel". However, that is the wrong answer. The real answer is "dolls." In the poem, she said Mabel's name was a key and that the viewer needed to remember this phrase. Those are the two most important aspects of solving this riddle. The alphabetic numbers of the letters in Mabel are 13, 1, 2, 5 and 12. And if they go to the 13th, 1st, 2nd, 5th and 12th letters in this special phrase, they spell out the word "dolls."


The reception for this video was positive.
