    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

    With Strexcorp firmly in control of Night Vale, and Kevin starting to think clearly for the first time in a long time, he finds himself caught between maintaining the company facade and secretly trying to protect the fledgling Night Vale resistance.

    And dealing with the fact that his beautiful scientist ex is now dating his equally-alluring double. Who he also has a crush on.

    And trying to steal a trans-dimensional key from his boss so that the Smiling God can't devour the world.

    (And you thought Carlos had it bad…)

    [A stand-alone fic set in Chiralityverse, and a companion piece to On the Nature of Love and Chirality.]

    Summary

    After a long and grueling campaign, Cecil Palmer is now the President of the United States. He has a knack for politics, a staff full of talented people, and a nation that, if not loves him, at least tolerates him. However, President Palmer has a secret, a secret which, when revealed, may cause the whole tower to come crashing down.

    Summary

    Dragonvale is a small town in the desert of Arizona. It's been around for a long time and still holds claim to some of the most otherworldly phenomena Carlos the Scientist has ever laid eyes on.
    But when Carlos is abruptly stuck with a testy patient and a vengeful coworker, the scientist quickly learns that there are some things that are just not meant to messed with. Not only that, but he soon grows continuously more haunted by someone else's past. He knows that if things continue the way they are he will slowly but surely lose his mind, if he doesn't lose himself entirely in the process.

    Summary

    A black car drove into town today. We don’t know what things it will bring, what horrors or what joys. There were three people in this car, driving somewhere unknown. They are staying in The Motel. Maybe they will stay there forever. Maybe they leave tomorrow and it will be as if we never knew they existed. It is most likely that the second will happen and you will barely even notice that the black car was here. We can only wait and see.

    Welcome to Night Vale

    Summary

    Kevin's lost memories have finally come back, and he can't deny the need to tell Cecil and Carlos the truth any longer. But though the echoes of days past are difficult to hear, it is nothing compared to what follows: to a showdown decades in the making, and one more deadly than anything that has gone before.

    Behold the beautiful mountain. Think deeply about meadows.

    Because, even in Desert Bluffs, you can have too much blood on your hands.

    Summary

    Ever since Carlos was little, he and his daemon have been fans of Dr. Lyra Belacqua. Both as the most groundbreaking experimental theologian of the 20th century, and as the heroine of dozens of fantasy-adventure children's stories (based very loosely on her own mysterious childhood).

    But Lyra's true legacy is still bigger than Carlos ever imagined...until he took a team of scholars to study Rusakov particles in the most theologically interesting community in Hispania Nova. Now his own day-to-day life is full of things like angels, witches, hooded spectres, portals between worlds, vague yet menacing branches of the Magisterium, and a man who walks around without his daemon and can read an alethiometer as easily as a stop sign.

    Summary

    (a story of learning to live with past actions, and the hopefully-conveyed message that not all is as dismal as it seems)
