    Summary

    “I can’t imagine a world where I know you, but have never felt love for you,” Carlos had told Cecil. “Maybe it wouldn’t look the same in every timeline, but I believe that every version of me, if he has met you and could still be called 'me' at all, loves every version of you.” But then, the two travel to a world where Desert Bluffs won the war against Strex instead of Night Vale, and where Carlos’ counterpart fell for Kevin long before he ever met a broken, blood-soaked Cecil in a lonely desert otherworld. As two chiral timelines collide around them, Carlos and Cecil are forced to face their unspoken feelings about Kevin, and Carlos’ hypothesis is put to the test. (More to be added to this summary later.)

    Summary

    He shouldn’t have written about the fire, about the anonymous notes posted on the park’s gates, but he was a reporter. It was his job to report, the reason for his very existence. The scarlet envelope sitting unopened on his desk, however, said otherwise.

    Cecil is in trouble with Station Managment (again).

    Summary

    Carlos could feel the music thumping through his body, pounding along like a second heartbeat as he pulled Cecil by the hand out onto the dance floor. He grinned as the blond followed his lead and when they got to the middle of the floor, he reached out and pulled the other man close, fitting their hips together and letting the music take control of his body. The beat sank into his bones and he began to move against Cecil, drawing him into the spell the dance floor wove around them.

    Carlos takes Cecil dancing. Things might get a little dirty.

    Terrible summary is terrible. The story is better than the summary, I promise.

    Summary

    So, this contains spoilers for season 3 because you know I live for season 3. Basically, Cecil is obviously suffering from trauma from Carlos' disappearance even though he never actually was the one who went through the experience. So let's shed some light on that.

    Summary

    Cecil was so busy with their own distress, the last of their willfulness melting under the old familiar comfort of Earl’s care, that they didn’t see how they were drifting together. How naturally Earl lead them both, how easily Carlos followed him. How many years did it take for Cecil and Earl to settle into this routine, into the ebb and flow of their relationship—how many years for them to just be stable, be healthy for fuck’s sake. And Carlos slipped into Earl’s orbit effortlessly, instinctively, like—like—

    Like they were made for each other.

    Summary

    "Cece, honey," Carlos' hand was poised in the air, two or three inches from the solid oak of their bathroom door. He wanted to knock, to try the doorknob and see if it was locked... to do something. He settled on, "Are you alright? I thought I heard crying -,"

    Cecil cut him off with a loud sniffle, "It hurts, Carlos."

    "Cecil?" Another whimper. "I'm coming in, okay? Just hold on and -,"

    Summary

    About a week ago, Carlos asked Cecil out on their fifth date. He said he wanted to go to on top of Hecate’s Peak, a hill on the east side of the small town. Carlos was wondering if Cecil would like to maybe come along with him, for scientific reasons, mainly, of course. He was going to study the stars, and the constellations in the sky that night. It was supposed to be a full moon. Cecil, of course, said he’d love to, because who could pass up an offer like that? Helping a scientist with his work? Let alone going stargazing with said scientist. On the night of the full moon? Sounds like a perfect date. Cecil thought it was kind of cheesy, though. It wasn’t really an original date, because gazing at the stars has been an overused, yet incredibly romantic, trope going on in pop culture. But then again, he isn’t complaing either.

    Summary

    Cecil wanted to comply, he truly did. Carlos seemed so desperate and sad and afraid, but it was out of his control. He wished he could speak well enough to apologize.

    "Cecil! CECIL!"

    And then everything went black.

    "Press 4 if you need to report a missing venomous pet," spoke the automated line on the other end of Carlos' phone from its abandoned spot on the wooden floor.

    "Press 85 to know the location of Night Vale's newly invisible and non-functioning hospital."

    Summary

    “Goodnight, Night Vale. Goodnight.”

    As soon as Carlos heard the final words of the broadcast, he felt a single tear fall down his cheek. 'Cecil', he thought. 'Cecil, baby, what happened to you?'

    What happened to Cecil after "Cassette"? What happened to Carlos? Find out!
