Priorities, Cecil. by Sour-Purple Priorities, Cecil. by Sour-Purple
One of the first things I loved about Cecil is his complete disregard for his intern’s lives, either he’s really dumb or he’s knowingly sending them to their certain death.

I think it's just that people in Night Vale die, disappear, go mad or turn into monsters so often that he's over it

Well.. Cecil loves his job, and he was an intern at one point.. I don't think he'd let anyone else take his place, do you?

Ok if your going to be an intern don't be an intern at Night Vale community radio folks. You will either die or go strangely missing and never be seen again.Oh Noes!

Cecil reminds me of Professor Farnsworth from Futurama in that regard.

Cecil: GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE!
Dana: Uh-oh. I don't like the sound of that...

XD You know what, I think he's just so used to losing them that it's not even a big deal now. At least he did try his hardest to save her, even if he failed! His expression in the last one though! I can't wait to find out what on earth Steve did to merit so much hate!

He doesn't care xD I mean he knows Dana is trapped in the dog park but he won't even answer her calls because he's too busy watching cat videos!

Cat videos? Oh, you mean Cat Ballou. He was watching Cat Ballou, which is an old Western movie from the 60's staring Jane Fonda :D Ah, but be fair, I think he really cares for her! He's upset he missed her calls and he does seem genuinely concerned for her safety and he does try to keep in contact with her. Dana talks to him with such affection in her voice and she keeps thanking him for everything! Total BFFs. ;P

Sour-Purple Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2013
Oh right the cat videos were in the sandstorm, I remembered wrong.
But I think that on the phone he was mindlessly leading her toward the more dangerous path, I don't think they are friends but I don't think he has bad intentions either, he's just kind of inconsiderate.

I don't know, the creators of the show and Cecil Baldwin himself seem to think that Cecil the character is a really lovely guy that genuinely cares about the town's residents and that's why people relate to him so much. Cecil B did a really interesting interview with The Fangirls recently where they discussed it. Have a listen! It's absolutely adorable! www.nightwatchuniverse.com/fan…
While I'm not really on board with the whole 'Cecil is the mastermind behind all the bad things' theory, I agree he can be a bit distractedly self-centred sometimes. But for me, that just makes him all the more relateable, because he's a flawed person.

Any time Cecil goes on a rant about Steve it’s awesome. As for the interns…they knew what they were getting into, it’s in the paperwork! “N.V.C.R. is not reasonable for your safety or death” that is just one less person to worry about! Though obviously Dana is a BA cuz she is in fact not dead! N.V.C.R. needs more Interns like her…and Tamika Flynn when she is older if she is interested :)
P.S. I like it when you give Cecil pupils even if they don’t work…I forget, is your Cecil blind? Is like why he only has pupils half the time?

Nah, he's not blind, I just have a hard time deciding if I like him more with pupils or without xD

Depending on if they're just doing community work or shadowing radio staff to learn the profession, they kight even be wholly worthless in the grand scheme of things for the NR staff.
