    Summary

    Set just after Episode 3 ("Station Management"). Written for H/C bingo on Dreamwidth, prompt "telepathic trauma".

    Cecil doesn't quite make it to the door in time to escape Station Management. For reasons of their own, they let him live, but the radio host is still left wounded, shaken, and hurt, trapped in a nightmare of torture as punishment for asking for letters.

    Carlos, who realized weeks ago that he has the survival instinct of a lemming, comes running to his rescue, and lends Cecil a shoulder to lean on and a floor to sleep on for the night. A lot goes unsaid after Cecil wakes up, because neither one of them is good at finding the right words when face-to-face. But Carlos finds himself with a lot to think about, and Cecil winds up thanking Carlos the only way he knows how.

    Summary

    “Sorry to barge in like this.” Cecil began, hands knitted together like a nervous scarf trailing down the street in a beautiful traffic accident. “But I had to do a bit of late night reporting about that Thing We Are Not Supposed To Mention, and I was going to simply stay the night in the studio, but then that Thing We Are Not Supposed To Mention made the station stop existing for about twenty minutes. Not to worry, as I was fleeing for my life down the road, I noticed that the radios in people's homes did once again return to programming, thus saving us from the screeching, reedy screams of the open, unfilled airwaves.”

    Summary

    “You don’t understand,” Will protests, though the fire has left his voice. “I’m hollow inside.”

    They speak so often in metaphor—of teacups, of mongooses and snakes, of ways out of dark places. It never occurs to Hannibal that Will might be speaking literally.
