    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

    “Cecil isn’t here,” Kevin offered helpfully. Really helpful, voice straining with how helpful he was being. “A long-distance relationship is unproductive. Cecil isn’t here to discuss plans with you or get food with you or stay up late talking with you. But I am. And I look just like him, don’t I?”

    or

    Carlos misses Cecil while in the Desert Otherworld, and Kevin takes it upon himself to make Carlos a productive member of society again despite that.

    Summary

    The desert is always watching. Benevolently. And it's always had a soft spot for a good love story, especially, it seems, between its favourite scientist and a man not-quite-human.

    Summary

    Being separated from the one you love is always hard, especially when he doesn't call as much as he should. And when he does call, spend the whole time talking about science. Or even just look for a door he promised he would. But as hard as the separation has been on Cecil, as least his friends aren't letting him give up quite yet.

    Summary

    Carlos sigue en el desierto y acuario no debería beber para olvidar (sobre todo porque no puede olvidar). A Earl le parte el corazón ver a Cecil tirado sobre la barra del All-Nite por lo que decide llevarlo a casa. ¿Qué más puede hacer? Está seguro de que le romperá la nariz de un puñetazo a ese presunto científico cuando regrese por hacerle esto a Cecil.

    Summary

    Little thing I wrote post-"worms...". Thoroughly jossed, but I figured I'd dust it off and post it, as a "what if Kevin had been secretly manipulative, so Carlos wasn't in control of his actions" AU.

    Probably the same AU as It's Gonna Be Good and I Can't Control My Fingers, I Can't Control My Brain.

    Summary

    The idea of complete freedom, the idea that there will be no consequences for any of this, is a relief at first, then a delight. But when your theory is thrown into doubt, you start testing it, pushing for limits, trying to find out if there's a breaking point. And if there isn't — if none of this ultimately matters — then does it matter what kind of person you turn into while finding that out?

    (Carlos's character arc, up to Well of Night, recast through the lens of A Story About You.)
