    Cooking dinner with Carlos for the first time, Cecil lets slip a certain three words. (No, not "illegal wheat by-products." A different three.)

    Summary

    Honestly, Carlos doubted that anyone who worked at the school currently had even seen this room, the only records of the PA radio show were from 1983. Carlos couldn't even match a name to the person who actually hosted the show, there wasn't even a single mention to the host in the files, just broader mentions to the show in general. That part of the investigation was rather disappointing, to say the least. Carlos would’ve at least liked to get the host's name.

    “It’s Cecil,”

    ~

    Carlos is your typical science nerd, he's smart, he does his research and he doesn't believe in ghosts. This makes it kind of a problem when the school goes off in a flurry of rumours when the school's abandoned PA system suddenly goes off at random times during the day with nothing but static. Carlos, ever the hero, goes off to find the source of these PA temperments, hoping to disprove these claims that the school is haunted. But what happens when it turns out that the school is haunted? Worse still, what happens when the ghost haunting the school is actually adorable and was apparently murdered by the school in some sort of elaborate murder scheme?

    Summary

    Cecil’s had a strange day but it’s nothing that can’t be fixed by a peaceful evening (ft. soup gone wrong, warm cuddles, and clock discussions) with his favourite scientist… Enjoy!

    Summary

    Re-Education is a common practice here in Night Vale. Everyone has to go through it at least a dozen or so times before they die. In this case, Carlos is once again left to take care of what is left of Cecil when Cecil is called down to city hall. Usually Cecil is reduced to a shell of who he used to be. Sometimes he is like a small child, lost and unsure of what exactly is going on.

    There's something different this time and Carlos is a few seconds too late before he realizes what Cecil is about to do.

    Summary

    Keith was not expecting to walk through the Garrison gates and straight into flying tackle-hug from a very pale, very purple-accented person, but that’s exactly what happens.

    “KEITH!!!! YOU’VE RETURNED FROM THE BLOOD SPACE WAR MOSTLY INTACT, PRAISE THE SPHERES!”

    And suddenly Keith has his arms full of Uncle Cecil, who is clinging to him like he might vanish back into space at any second.

    Summary

    Carlos has never felt more confused in his entire life. He's more than tempted to run back to his car and get out of this creepy town- but the scientist in him was curious about this odd place and he was admittedly intrigued by the boy with purple tattoos.

    Summary

    Carlos' decision to move to Night Vale may just have been the worst decision he had ever made. It would also compete for the title of most horrifying experience of his life.

    Follow the story of Welcome To Night Vale from our favourite adorkable scientist's standing, as Carlos battles the reality of his new life in Night Vale, his team's dysfunctionality and his developing - not to mention irritating - non-scientific crush on that darn radio host that keeps complimenting his hair.

    Read from the perspective of Carlos and his team as part of the Night Vale that, as dead animals are being rained down upon the earth, is not safe inside a radio booth.

    Summary

    “The thing is,” Cecil tries again, eyes still closed, “it’s like mountains, you know? If I start believing in stars, then I might put my faith in mountains, and what would be next? Believing in helpful librarians?"

    “Librarians are helpful everywhere but here,” Carlos corrects with a small frown. He still has no idea what Night Vale’s version of librarians are. “I’ll explain it to you some other time. And this is definitely not a stepping stone to mountain, uh, believing. Now open your eyes.”

    Summary

    He was so lost in his thoughts that he didn't notice when behind him, the two girls' conversation stopped abruptly. A brief pause, and his mind only came back to earth when Maureen spoke up. "Well, I got more stuff to do."

     

    He turned around to look at them as they were heading to the back room.

     

    "Me too. See you later, Cecil!" Dana said, smiling at him before following the other girl. The door closed behind her.

     

    Momentarily confused at their sudden departure, half of his mind only heard the bell above the front door ring, signifying another customer. When he did turn to see who it was, Cecil swore he almost choked on his own spit. In all honesty, his mouth may have dried a little in that moment, but still, he definitely almost choked. There was no other explanation for the small sound he made in his throat.

     

    On his defense, it was ultimately justifiable.

     

     

    ...

     

    Or where Cecil experiences a less-than-normal day at work, but then a stranger comes right in to spare him the usual weirdness. Cue both of them getting flustered.

    Summary

    "Let's get married."
    "Okay."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Love is hard, especially when in a zany town under constant observation. Carlos knows this all too well. But, he and Cecil love each other more than anything, so surely they can handle it.
    Right?

    Author's Note:
    I am going through and revising the wording of certain parts but the premise is still the same. This may not be updated frequently, but I will try my best!
