Cecil probably has the most civic pride of any person in the town, if not the country and probably the planet earth. He f*cing LOVES Night Vale like it's his baby and he's telling it bedtime stories each night. Like it's not just his job, but his CALLING.
But when Carlos dies, he CURSES the town. The town that he loves. The town that he never has a bad word about, even when all hell is breaking loose. Even if the town were actively harming its citizens (As is often the case) he still maintains his love and adoration for his hometown.
Except when Carlos dies.
Nightvale can take his body, mind and soul. It can strip him of whatever human rights or basic safety it wants. It can threaten to devour his very being and it's still the greatest little town in all the country.
But it cannot harm Carlos.
That is the one line that should never be crossed.
and you've illustrated it beautifully
Shhh Ceicil. It's gonna be okay.
my classmates thought I was terrified for the exam and kept telling me that the exam would be fine that it wasn't the Junior Cert (first major state exam in Ireland) and I'd be fine if I didn't do well. XDD
I couldn't explain to them the real reason, because iPods and phones aren't allowed in the school and there were teachers everywhere.
I SHOULDN'T HAVE LOOKED AT FANART TODAY. I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS.
hm... I don't know that an intern did write it down. Cecil just seems to know everything that happens around his perfect Carlos. Like in A Lazy Day, when no one did anything and Cecil still seemed to know everything that Carlos did all day... I may very well just be overanalyzing this but Cecil has enough inherent oddities for me to jump to that conclusion.
Ps: You're amazing...
woooowww, this is amazziiing.
B) I always assumed that with his third eye, Cecil was watching all of this taking place, describing it in vivid detail, torturing himself with every word. That's how all the stuff he says/sees happens in real time and why he knows so much about YOU!
My breath, it got caught in my throat upon hearing something happened to beautiful, beautiful Carlos.
I love that line!
Thank the dark gods for the apache tracker!
Lol, did you hear the later Russian translation? It's golden.
What did he say?
