    Summary

    Before the zombie apocalypse, Carlos was a scientist. Now, between the ravenous hordes that defy all scientific explanation, the vast abandoned cities, and the loss of his old communities, he's not quite sure where he fits in. Arriving alone in a strange desert town, where the locals are alternately welcoming and hostile, and where he's sure that his radio operator is crushing hard on him, Carlos starts to think he may have found some way in which he can be useful: he runs.

    A Night Vale / Zombies Run AU, because both stories begin with a newcomer in town, and are narrated by a guiding voice on the radio.

    Summary

    "All of this is to say, Carlos and Cecil have come to terms with two very different interpretations of what 'alone time' means. And there are certain needs which are best taken care of – well, best taken care of in intimate company but, barring that – by oneself, alone. And the nature of being by oneself dramatically impacts how one considers such needs."

    Summary

    “…I’ll ask again,” the scientist growls, the words graveled and catching on snakesfoot. The opal-hued tendrils of the downy blossoms shudder in tantalizing horror, even as Carlos forces himself to meet his host’s eerie gaze. “Have you the Sight?”

    Cecil indulges in a drawled laugh. “No,” he then vows, the retort so sinfully low that it makes Carlos think of Hell. “I have the Voice.”

    Their first time is not quite what either of them expected.
    Thoughtful confusion was not high on the list of desired reactions when one's boyfriend saw one naked for the first time. In fact, it was decidedly somewhere near the bottom, maybe a step or two above 'runs away screaming.' Not that that had ever happened to him, of course.

    Summary

    Cecil has eyes everywhere in Night Vale. Literally. (Or: an exploration of Cecil's occasional omniscience.)
    The decision to keep a close eye on the new addition to Night Vale's scientific community had everything to do with Cecil's professional integrity as a journalist and nothing to do with Carlos's perfect hair or his beautiful lab coat or the strong, capable hand that Cecil was currently shaking.

    (here shall we live in this terrible town
    and the walls shall have eyes and the doors shall have ears
    but we'll dance in the dark and they'll play with our lives
    these are the days, these are the strangest of all
    these are the nights, these are the darkest to fall
    there's fear overhead, there's fear overground
    and here are we at the center of it all)

    Summary

    "Let us be proficient about this, yes? Exorcising me! It's really quite simple, turtle," the demon assures, heavy coal lashes hooding sensually over the jewel-bright abyss of his eyes. A single, long finger flicks crisply between the Marquis and the scientist, mimicking the impossible arch of his toothy grin. "You two must simply have sex."

    Summary

    Carlos's reaction to the first date involves a lot more anguished cries than Cecil's, though to be fair, they're only anguished cries of "Why did I do that, why did I say that, why am I allowed to interact with other people" so they're still better than at least eighty percent of Night Vale's late night wails.
