    Summary

    He forgets, sometimes, how much Cecil would do for him, and how much he would do for Cecil in return. It’s only moments like these, where their fingers are twisted together, and the sun only barely rivals him in how deep his love for Cecil runs, that he can remember.

    Cecil stops in the middle of the street. He pulls Carlos out into the road, and all of the cars pass around them, like Cecil does this every day. “I love you,” he says, and for as loud as the words are, it’s like Carlos is the only one who can hear them. “And look at this. This would never have happened, if I hadn’t met you.”

    Summary

    Jon? …Archivist? Have you ever had someone with a crush on you? Perhaps it is already something more than a crush?

    It all seems so…insidious, isn’t it? The way their attention hones in on you like a lighthouse on a ship. The way you see the lines of your life reflected in their staring eyes, and you can’t help think, do I really look beautiful like that, so perfect?

    (Statement of Dr. Carlos [REDACTED], regarding a friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead as they all pretend to sleep.)

    Summary

    The window opens. The curtains, the stupid ugly net ones that Carlos would much rather burn into nothing more than ash than have hanging on his windows for a second longer, blow. The window shuts again. He wonders if he imagined it. 

    The glass on the counter top is teasing him. It’s edges are glaring at him. He glares back, hoping he can beat it into submission. It explodes into even tinier pieces. 

    His heart beats again, harder this time. Like it wants to get out. Carlos sympathises greatly. He holds his hand up to his face and admires how they shake. His fingers, spindly and bony that they are, like spider’s legs, vibrate with a frequency he hasn’t seen for years.

    Summary

    He takes his hand, feels the familiar zing their skin makes when they touch, and follows Cecil outside. He opens the passenger side door for him, because it's a gentlemanly thing to do, and also Cecil’s car doesn’t exactly have handles like Carlos’s does and he’s not sure if Cecil actually knows how to use them properly. 

     

     

    The journey downtown takes eight minutes, accounting for evening traffic. The reservation at the restaurant is for half past seven, and if they leave now, then they’ll have time for a five minute make-out session in the parking lot before going inside.

     

    Carlos starts the car. Cecil’s grin fuels him all the way there.

    Summary

    Cecil says, “I was waiting for you.”

    It’s so casually said, breathed out amongst every other thought congregating between them, that Carlos almost misses it at first. He almost misses the genuineness with which Cecil speaks, the certainty with which he thinks, and the meaning hidden so deeply behind those words  

    When he does recognise it for what it is, his breath rushes out in a huff. He says, “thank you,” and the words will never, not ever, be enough. Not in the face of the universe, not when Cecil could have everything and nothing, and Carlos only has so much to give him.

    Summary

    On his way to Florida, Mike Hanlon finds himself in a very strange town that, geographically, should be nowhere near Florida. He decides to stay there and investigate this strange town called Night Vale, because something about the town seems...familiar. Plus, the very eccentric Radio Host seems to know more than he lets on.

    Meanwhile, Carlos, still trapped in the desert otherworld, finds two strange men in a strange cave, bloodied and claiming to be from Derry, Maine. With time so clearly on his side, Carlos decides to help them find their way out of the strange otherworld, while also searching for his own way out.

    (Will Update More Frequently due to...events)

    Summary

    Carlos was stuck in traffic.
    He was always stuck in traffic on this road, always with the same cars, every single time he’d made it through the jam to the nearest exit and off the road, taking side roads instead. The way home was the same every day, and he liked it that way, slow and messy as it was.

    Summary

    Carlos is standing in front of the mirror when Cecil gets home. He’s got it uncovered and he knows Cecil won’t be happy about that, but he’s staring blankly into it like the longer he looks, the more likely the reflection is to change. 

    “Carlos?”

    He doesn’t reply - can’t reply, maybe. He’s not sure. All he knows is that his mouth won’t move like he tells it to, and he still has the mirror uncovered, and God.

    “Carlos, where are you?”

    Carlos blinks. He wonders if this is a dream. Whether he’s dreaming, and he’ll wake up and everything will be fine, he can curl up into Cecil’s side and life will go on.

    “Carlos, are you in here? Are you okay?”

    Summary

    “I’m sorry,” is the first thing he feels able to say. Cecil looks utterly heartbroken by it.

    “Whatever for?”

    “For ruining date night,” Carlos says. This is when the tears come. When he just about catches his breath and all of a sudden is ripped away, because his voice shakes and tears fall down his cheeks and it’s so goddamn humiliating; because he’s strong, he’s supposed to be strong. “I- I don’t know what happened. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to.”

    Summary

    “A desert.”
    “A desert?!”
    “Don’t even think about touching my stuff. Just grab my duffel and get out”
    “Whatever jerk. Can you at least tell me where is this desert so I have a decent response when Cas asks me where are we going?"
    There was a silence in the line as if Dean wasn’t sure if he should say this on the phone or not. Finally, Sam heard a small intake of breath before his brother spoke.
    “Night Vale.”

    Summary

    “I’ve been in town about two weeks now,” he starts. Cecil nods enthusiastically. “And I keep hearing… okay, it’s just. Whatever, I just keep hearing people call each other their husbands and wives?”

    Cecil takes a sip, waiting for more, and then tugs his straw out of his mouth when he realizes that’s all he’ll get without prompting. “Yep,” he agrees, popping the last letter. “That’s what people call each other when they’re married in Night Vale. Is it the marriage thing that’s confusing? I know it’s kind of an outdated concept, it started back when families would exchange blood to merge—”

    “No, I understand what marriage is. That exists outside of this town,” Carlos interrupts. “I mean that I keep hearing two woman call each other their wives. Or two men call each other their husbands.”

    “Mhm,” Cecil murmurs, folding his hands under his chin as he nods. “They’re married, then.”

    “Cecil,” Carlos finally snaps, frustrated that he’s not being understood. Cecil furrows his brow, and somehow his third eye even looks concerned. “That’s not legal here.”

    Summary

    So loving Cecil means this: inexorable love, endless adoration. It means waking up in a bed full of crumbs because Cecil gets hungry at three am and his favourite snack is those disgusting Marmite rice cakes. It means always having someone to hold his hand. It means passing love notes before they each go into work, and it means Cecil will read his aloud on the radio. It means comfort, happiness, and support. It means he’s never alone. And eventually, he learns that Cecil fills all of his empty puzzle pieces, and he’s never been happier.

    Summary

    With a final wave, she set off through the sands, purposefully parking outside of the town’s limits to try and avoid any eyes on her before she was ready for them, though she was fairly certain she was already being watched.

    𝙋𝙤𝙥𝙪𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣: 𝙒𝙚𝙡𝙡... 𝙄𝙩 𝘿𝙤𝙚𝙨𝙣𝙩 𝙍𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙈𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧, 𝘿𝙤𝙚𝙨 𝙄𝙩?

    Well. It was certainly the right place then, wasn’t it?

    Summary

    “You’re not the only all-powerful conglomeration of water vapors around,” Deb snarls, “But some of us exercise some gosh-darn self-control.”

    She gathers up her things and storms out of the cafe. She stops, just before The Glow Cloud, and turns.

    “Get a grip,” Deb spits, and turns on her metaphorical heel, phasing through the door.

    What an asshole.
