…But yesterday, when he called me, he started his call by saying, “I am calling for personal reasons. Also, my calculations show a strange source of energy approaching the town, but not emanating the kind of light that such a source should.” - Episode 27, First Date

Cecilos for my 19th inktober entry! Been re-listening to the podcast recently, and I suddenly missed these two
(when they were STILL IN NIGHT VALE TOGETHER/SOBS) And something that’s a non-angsty Cecilos from me, for once? :p
I only just recently started listening to Welcome To Night Vale, and very immediately got super hooked. So I made some art.
Found a cute ref pic, so I doodled some boyfriends (falling asleep in front of the tv) to get back in the swing of drawing.
Honestly, though, I can’t believe there aren’t more people talking about Carlos giving up decades to stay in Night Vale with Cecil. Looking back at earlier episodes with that information lends new weight to Carlos’ story arc. I mean, his first year in town is totally centered around how time in Night Vale doesn’t work/is slowing down. So, he knew what staying would mean for him. And not only did he stay - HE GAVE CECIL HIS WATCH.
Carlos gave Cecil the one thing that could remind him of the outside world he was leaving behind and settled down to buy a condo. Surely I’m not the only one still choked up over this… right?
has this been done yet? if so it has now :P
Little Carlos doodle. It’s just something he says but I always found his “A scientist is self sufficient” and “A scientist is always fine” to be pretty lonely.
In case anyone was wondering what’s up with the new episode
stupid WtNV headcanon 233563412: the reason Cecil is a radio broadcaster is because his appearance is in a constant state of flux. He wanted to go into television, but his inability to keep the same face consistently made his career choice (and proving his identity) very hard.
Carlos is happy with Cecil, no matter what he looks like because regardless, Cecil is Cecil. Makes waking up next to him in the morning kind of an adventure, though.
