Carlos: This…desert Otherworld is just so scientifically interesting! Maybe it’s the most scientifically interesting community I’ve ever seen!
The WTNV fandom:
Carlos calls the desert world the most interesting scientific community
*painful lip wobble*
Carlos still hasn’t looked for a way to get back
Cecil once again thinking knowledge and books are bad, and wanting power to be concentrated in the hands of the few.
Cecil disagreeing with Tamika and Dana.
Cecil fantasizing about going to the Carnival with Carlos.
Cecil encouraging the town to rise up against the Carnival people, who it turns out were completely innocent.
Cecil missing an opportunity to figure out how these people got into town, and thus how to get Carlos back.
*I hate everything*
Cecil expressing severe distrust of outsiders.
*THINK CECIL. THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE SAYING*
The possibility of Cecil regressing back into the person Steve Carlsberg described after all of his character growth.
*Why don’t you just stab me in the heart? It’d be less painful*
- This is the real Joseph Fink.
- Angels AREN’T real.
- "I promise to return home soon."
Between Carlos saying in Old Oak Doors that he can’t even remember how he got to Night Vale, and the way the carnival workers reacted to being there, something occurred to me. Spoilers for the new ep below, of course.
That actually would be great. As of right now I believe that Cecil is depressed and gets worse and worse while Carlos can’t be bothered to come back. Theory above would be neat solution to this injustice. Yet, Night Vale is always about real people and real troubles (though in disguise) and long-distance relationship failure or conflict of work and love is far more realistic than the theory.
SHIT. CARLOS DID NOT JUST CALL THE DESERT OTHERWORLD THE MOST SCIENTIFICALLY INTERESTING PLACE. HE DID NOT. FUCK.
I feel so sorry for Cecil. Because, yes, it’s Carlos right to have his dream job and so on and so forth. But if there is no place for Cecil in Carlos’ life why not to end the whole affair?
Maybe I’m too harsh but I just can’t forgive all the “sorry I’m too busy with my life to consider your feelings but I still love you, right?”. And that talk about “treacherous outsiders” and carnivals finding Night Vale while Carlos can’t be bothered seem to indicate that this relationship problem is not a glitch but rather the main mystery of the new arc. And it would take a lot more than Carlos admitting other people weren’t interesting to him to redeem the character in my eyes. I just hope this new angsty arc will be worth its trouble.
