Tim McKeon and Alex Hirsch make a great pair of writers because they were really good at showing us what to do with characters who cause problems through their typical flaws, not like when Alex Hirsch wrote The Last Mabelcorn all by himself and displayed protagonist-centered morality because "morality is relative." At first, Stan and Soos cause problems that make Mabel and Dipper not want to talk to them, but we know they didn't mean any harm. Then they use their positive qualities to solve the problem at the end of the day!
