    Summary

    "The colloquial name is bloodstone," says the man from StrexCorp's Acquisitions division. "Heard of them?"

    Carlos shakes his head. "No, but I'm not a minerologist. Are you certain this wasn't intended for the geology department?"

    ~

    Carlos is a loyal company employee, who has never been to any place called Night Vale and never met anyone named Cecil…which doesn’t explain the mysterious woman appearing in his lab, or these dreams he’s started having…

    Summary

    "We need to talk, Carlos. I've been talking with Earl, and I just...I can't do this long-distance thing anymore. It's too hard, trying to be your boyfriend when I can't even hold your hand."

    Summary

    The video, when they Skype, is clearer, though the sound is delayed on Carlos's side. Or rather, the video is premature; at Carlos's best estimate, he receives the visual transmissions ten seconds before they're recorded. He's getting used to seeing Cecil's expressions in reaction to what he's just about to say.

    Summary

    Of all the things that had and could happen to Carlos in Night Vale, becoming a vampire was practically mundane. Hardly worth mentioning, really. One day you're a regular mortal human, and the next night you wake up with fangs...

    Summary

    The men in their well-cut suits and sunny ties are courteous, though they make it clear their invitation isn't optional.

    Summary

    Science was his mistress and his lover and his bosom companion. Carlos was happier losing himself in the ecstasy of discovery, stealing secrets like kisses from the endlessly beautiful universe, than he could be trying to satisfy any human partner.
