    Summary

    Every love story has two perspectives. Cecil has told his in great detail. But when Carlos first arrived in the small town of Night Vale he had no intention of falling in love. In fact, he had no intention of staying at all.

    In 2012, a stranger visited Carlos' university office offering a fully funded year of research. It was a gift no scientist could ever refuse. But 12 months is a long time to be in the middle of nowhere, especially when everyone seems to be trying to kill you. Well, everyone except the radio host.

    Summary

    A drug called Bloodstone has been known to cause severe hallucinations, dulled responses to fear or pain, overactive stimulus to the senses, and in many cases heavy memory loss. But it would certainly make for a stunning news show. Which is probably why they keep letting Cecil back in front of the microphone every month.

    Summary

    Family isn't a fact. It's a hunch at first, then a series of decisions.

    Or: Five times Loki and his kids were accepted in Night Vale, and one time they decided to stay.

    Summary

    A stranger came into town today? Who is he? Why his cropped, bleached-blond hair? Why his blood-soaked business suit? The Angels say his name is Kevin. That is all they're saying.

    Well, Kevin. We hope you enjoy your stay, in this town you've never heard of, but can't help but feel like you know so well. With the other man's voice on the radio that feels ever so slightly wrong, as if you should be hearing someone else. Where the world is black, your neck is bare, and your left side throws you off balance.

    Welcome to Night Vale, Kevin.

    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

    Rumors are not scientific, so scientists should not be concerned with them. So why has the legend of the elusive, mysterious desert town always fascinated Carlos? And what exactly will he find if those stories are true?

    Summary

    "Now, I want everyone to think," said Nilanjana, setting the chalk down. She leaned forward with her palms on the desk. "What was the worst danger this town has faced in recent history? The time we came closest to being destroyed?"

    "Strexcorp," said Carlos, Abby, Luisa, and Mark.

    "When Carlos was trapped in the desert otherworld," said Cecil.

    "Yes to you four, no to Cecil. We were almost taken over by Strexcorp, because they were people. Not giant centipedes, not plastic bags, not any unintelligent thing we could destroy, people. And people are more than just sentience. They have emotions and reasoning and logic. They can plan and think."

    ~~~
    A new team of scientists arrives in Night Vale, but they want much more from the town than to research it. These scientists want nothing less than total control of Night Vale. For the citizens ready to rise and defend their weird and wonderful home, this means war.
