    Skilful worldbuilding, thrilling action sequences, and excellent characterisation. Though one should expect no less from whymzycal, who remains my favourite writer for the Saiyuuki fandom even to this day.

    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.

    An interesting and plausible exploration of canon events, enjoyable worldbuilding, and excellent characterisation are a difficult combination to manage at the best of times, but all the more so in a fandom like Welcome to Night Vale. This fic, however, manages just that, without a hitch.

    Summary

    They say there is an island in the center of the world, where a mysterious monster lies in sleep to wait for the day it wakes and causes the end of the world. Kurogane always dismissed it as nothing more than a story, until a chance encounter lands him on a ship created by dark magic and he begins to realize that every myth has its roots in truth.

    A lovely fantasy tale with excellent characterisation and an interesting bit of worldbuilding which wouldn't have been out of place in a CLAMP manga.

    Summary

    So: we've heard about the people of Night Vale, about its buildings, history, food and laws. But what about the local animal population? You KNOW they're around. And they're watching you.

    A series of notes typed in on the fly through various scientists' cellphones, laptops and tablets, occasionally while being bandaged (the scientists, not the tech), written in the 'Partially Stars' universe by the wonderfully talented thebookofnights with her permission.

    Tangentially related to the Partially Stars 'verse but can stand perfectly well on its own. Creative, charming, and full of fun!

    Partially Stars is not so much an attempt at rationalising or explaining the weirdness that is Night Vale as it is something that adds a layer of meaning to those innumerable little details that canon leaves up to the imagination, all while perfectly emulating the bizarre inexplicability of WtNV. Great characterisation of Carlos and Cecil, very good development of the show's secondary cast, and a rather endearing group of OC's in the form of Carlos' co-workers.
