    Summary

    The worst part isn't the trial. As big a mockery of justice as it is. Sam knows the wigs and robes are British custom, though it doesn't stop them from looking ridiculous to his American eyes. But the porcelain masks over their faces are from an entirely different tradition. And holding the proceedings in Middle English is not part of any legal practice Sam knows of.

    ~

    Captured, tried and sentenced by the British Men of Letters, believing his brother is gone, Sam struggles to hold onto hope and his humanity.

    Summary

    It's not that Sam deliberately hides it from Dean. They're doing so much research now that he's got a dozen books scattered across the library tables at any given moment. So if he avoids reviewing those few particular texts when Dean's around, that's just coincidence. And Dean is so involved in his own studies that he doesn't notice.

    At least, Sam doesn't think he does.

    Summary

    "So what did you take?" Sam asks. Because as it turns out, there are even worse things to think about than how your brother attempted suicide less than twenty-four hours ago.

    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

    Carlos knew something was amiss when he woke up on the mattress, rather than entangled in a mass of tentacles.

    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...

    "It doesn't hurt like that." The fear in his eyes, in his too-hard breaths, hardly sounds in his dull baritone. "I'm not the Voice of Night Vale anymore, it seems."

    Summary

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

    Carlos obediently gets into the yellow helicopter, and doesn't try to look out the window, doesn't watch Night Vale falling away beneath him as they climb.
