N/A Personality: "When life gives you lemons, squirt those lemons in life's eyes."
Generally, the first thing people might see in Wendy is that she's a delinquent. A wild, partying girl that likes to play around, and enjoys having fun more then anything. Honestly, that's not exactly an incorrect assumption to make. She's very much "one of the boys" in that regard, preferring generally to have fun and live life to its fullest. This makes her someone that also tends to take risks for the thrill of it, and the fun that can follow. Even if it means she might get hurt, or something gets broken, it'll certainly be something she can laugh about with her friends in the end. If she survives, of course, which she tries to do.
Being the eldest child in the Corduroy family, as well as the only girl, there was a requirement for Wendy to grow up to deal with her three younger brothers and her lumberjack father. And despite the inherent trouble of living with four males, she does enjoy spending time with her family, having breakfast with her dad, and going on camping trips with them at times. The whereabouts of Wendy's mother are unknown, though it's likely she either moved away a long time ago, or died. She doesn't like to speak about the issue, but she's become relatively accustomed to it, and the fact that it makes her the woman of the house. Her family's rowdy nature has worn off on her. Wendy is often quick to use lighthearted acts of violence as a form of affection, punching Dipper in the arm as a sign of respect for example.
Possessing popularity around the Mystery Shack, Wendy is also quite the popular figure in Gravity Falls' local group of teenagers. Often, she even acts as an unofficial leader of her group whenever they do things together. Together, they mainly do rebellious acts, simply for the fun of it; stealing a cop car at least once, and breaking into a supposedly haunted convenience store. They're all close, though at the same time they can bring the worst out in each other arguing and even breaking up for a short while.
Underneath the tomboy tendencies, Wendy is an amiable, generally down-to-earth kind of person. She likes to take a positive outlook on life, while still retaining her prankster nature. If she can get a job as the lifeguard at the local swimming pool, then that's awesome! Means free snacks and the best seat in the house. If she gets fired, she can just loot the snack machine and share it with her friends! Rather then being the average, stuck up kind of teenager that wouldn't want to be friends with kids, albeit, kids three years younger then her, Wendy wholeheartedly accepts Dipper and Mabel into her group."Huh... I guess we're both freaks."
She's more then a little modest, despite her good looks. It owes to the fact that, formerly, she was a gangling preteen with braces, having grown out of that only recently. It's clear that she knows what it's like to be the center of ridicule, especially as she reveals a weaker, more softer side of herself. But now she'll poke fun at the faults of others, even herself, as the above quote illustrates. She even openly shares this secret with Dipper. It's all clearly in good fun, not to throw anyone under the bus for a cheap laugh. In a sense, this is why she is so accepting of Mabel and Dipper. She treats them the most fairly out of her group of friends, and even lies to them to protect Dipper's secret because she cares about him and doesn't want to see him getting picked on.
Leading a generally lax lifestyle, there is little that Wendy actually does whenever she's working, especially at her part-time cashier job at the Mystery Shack. Make no mistake, Wendy is quite intelligent, she'll simply put her mind to finding ways to shirk her responsibilities. She's resourceful enough to make a small break spot on the roof of the shack where she goes every so often when her boss, Stan, doesn't notice. And even so, she honestly does enjoy working there. It lets her hang out with her friends, and it keeps her from having to work far away at her father's logging camp. She takes part in events at the shack, and even helps repair and reopen it when it was destroyed.
Even at her current age, Wendy amassed an impressive collection of ex-boyfriends in Gravity Falls, to the point that she can't be certain that she's even specifically broken up with one of them. While she's not particularly bothered by the trail of tears and broken hearts she has left behind - or the many texts she has to ignore - there's no ill will directed at them in the long run. Though, after a nasty bout with her current boyfriend, Robbie involving mind controlling her, Wendy stormed away in tears, choosing not to date anyone for now. It was that utter misunderstanding of her feelings that hurt her the most, and the culmination of just how many of the boys wanted to date her not because they truly care for her.
Something to note is that if she feels she's been lied to, Wendy is liable to snap at just about anyone about it, Especially if it's the person that's caused it. It's rage that she inherited from her father, but rarely puts to use. If you truly end up on her bad side, though, her anger can be scathing."...Dude, it's okay. I always... kind of knew."
Still, Wendy can be surprisingly mature, especially for someone her age. She acts as a usually helpful and encouraging figure, offering advice to all of her friends, including Mabel and Dipper Pines. To Mabel, Wendy takes the position of a sort of big sister figure in their relationship, talking her through relationship problems. She'll mess around with her while on the job, taking part in her impromptu dance parties and other games. Dipper receives some clear life advice too, especially for his crush on her, which she always knew about anyways. It was indeed incredibly obvious. Although, rather then simply shut him down, Wendy talks it out with him, remarking that she's flattered but it could never work out. The two agree to stay friends, which makes Wendy more then happy. Owing to her nature, she even forgives Robbie after he finds love in one of her other friends, Tambry.
As mellow as she can be, the calm and cool exterior Wendy exudes bellies a nervous breakdown possibly waiting to happen. Wendy is rarely seen in a cranky, or upset mood, but that's simply because she usually keeps those feelings hidden from others, even her closest friends. In truth, Wendy is stressed "twenty four-seven," as an obvious result of living with her aggressively manly family in a town were weird things happen every other day. It's a secret that she only despairingly reveals when she thinks she's about to get her memory erased forever.
She possesses a fierce loyalty to her friends, as well as a sense of adventure. Wendy jumps at the chance to join her friends as they continue their investigations of the mysteries of Gravity Falls. She has proved that she can take care of herself, and will defend her friends if there's danger around. Although she'll follow the plans of others, she's quick to react of her own accord in case things go wrong.
Wendy lives up to her family name, overall. Rough and durable, but still with a soft side. She's already had to deal with loss and change, and did so very well. She doesn't like to dwell on the past, and instead moves forward to the future. Life is worth living, and having good friends and free snacks makes it even better. Abilities:

But if that's not enough...
There was a tree in the courtyard of the school; it stood on its own, in a corner with a little bench underneath it. It was old, and tall, baring full leaves red on its branches that looked as though they were dipped in fresh blood. The notion of what that could mean hadn't been missed by Wendy, she simply preferred to never think about it when she took a seat underneath it.
"Stupid uniform." A remark dull on her lips. How many time had she said those words when she first started at this school? How long had it been since she felt the comfortable mesh of her flannel shirts, or her worn deerstalker? All of that was gone, replaced. She would probably be called a hillbilly by someone, of course, but at least those clothes were nice. This strange, terrible school she suddenly found herself enrolled at. It wasn't by choice, of course; just some awful turn of events that probably couldn't be prevented.
Tall pine trees and summer colors had been traded in for gritty buildings and the dark hallways of a school that hid secrets. Secrets.... She knew someone that would probably like to figure out those secrets, if he were here. If any
of them were.
"What a school, huh?" She leaned back, speaking to the branches. Who knows, maybe something was going to listen to her. "I didn't think I'd ever miss being home so much." She lets out an annoyed noise, masking the sadness she felt. Coping, she was always doing it, whether it was subconscious or not. Why bother with the stress while you could simply lock it away and simply not deal with it? "I guess that's what it's like when something's taken away from you."
