Title: And You're Gonna Walk Five Hundred Miles
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Carlos(/Cecil), Kevin
Rating: PG (drugging)
Disclaimer/warnings: Not my characters, just borrowing.

Little thing I wrote post-"worms...". Thoroughly jossed, but I figured I'd dust it off and post it, as a "what if Kevin had been secretly manipulative, so Carlos wasn't in control of his actions" AU.

Probably the same AU as It's Gonna Be Good and I Can't Control My Fingers, I Can't Control My Brain.

( "Cecil's coming to visit...once he gets into the dog park, and walks however long it takes to get here, in whatever direction 'here' is." )

Title: Now We're Even
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil, Kevin
Rating: G
Disclaimer: This is a not-for-profit fanwork using characters belonging to Fink and Cranor.

Far-future Kevin loses the signal.

(A post-e073 feel-good fixit fic. No, really.)

( "Oh, Cecil! I wish you had known me before...before Strex. Before it all...." )

Title: A Story About Consequences
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, others
Rating: T
Disclaimer: This is a not-for-profit fanwork using characters belonging to Fink and Cranor.

The idea of complete freedom, the idea that there will be no consequences for any of this, is a relief at first, then a delight. But when your theory is thrown into doubt, you start testing it, pushing for limits, trying to find out if there's a breaking point. And if there isn't — if none of this ultimately matters — then does it matter what kind of person you turn into while finding that out?

(Carlos's character arc, up to Well of Night, recast through the lens of A Story About You.)

( There is no accountability. There are no limits. You look into whatever you feel like, drop it without finishing if you get bored. Sometimes you talk like a badly-written scientist character on a cheesy TV show, just for the hell of it. It's so much fun. )

Title: ten feet under, and upside down
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Subject: Cecil Palmer + depression
Rating: T

A soundtrack for Cecil Palmer + sinking depression. (And the slow rise back out.)

Companion mix to Let The Shadows Fall Behind You.



And this flood, this flood / Is slowly rising up, swallowing the ground )

Title: August Bodies (part 3/4)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: one-sided Carlos/Kevin, past Kevin/Lauren, background Cecil/Carlos
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: Night Vale and everything related are mine. All mine. Because I am Joseph Fink, creator of Welcome to Night Vale. The real Joseph Fink, yep, that's me.

Even more angsty A/B/O from the otherworld desert. Alpha Carlos invents an extremely scientific device to help Kevin through his heats. Omega Kevin keeps trying to coax Carlos into providing more hands-on assistance.

( Sometimes they came back with fresh wounds and bloody clothes and prayers for colleagues they'd lost, and Carlos would chastise them for getting blood all over the place, which was how Kevin learned that Carlos was some kind of aesthetic minimalist. )

Title: August Bodies (part 2/3)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Carlos, Kevin, past Kevin/Lauren, background Cecil/Carlos
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: Night Vale and everything related are mine. All mine. Because I am Joseph Fink, creator of Welcome to Night Vale. The real Joseph Fink, yep, that's me.

Angsty A/B/O from the otherworld desert. Omega Kevin isn't sure how to cope, being separated from Strexcorp's efficiency-maximizing breeding program for the first time in his adult life. Alpha Carlos is fine, because he's always fine.

( "Trust me. I'm a scientist! Admittedly, that means I study science, not biology or sexuality...but I can say for a fact that you are overheated." )

Title: August Bodies (part 1/2)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Earl, background Cecil/Carlos
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: Night Vale and everything related are mine. All mine. Because I am Joseph Fink, creator of Welcome to Night Vale. The real Joseph Fink, yep, that's me.

A/B/O angsty sex (sexy angst?). Omega Cecil refuses to take any kind of heat suppressants. After all, Carlos is definitely going to find a way back to Night Vale any day now, so there's no need! Clearly there is no way this mindset can backfire.

(Alpha Earl is a good and supportive friend, even if he asks uncomfortable questions sometimes.)

( Obviously he needed to get better hormone blockers. The store-brand kind were already letting him develop pre-heat symptoms, and he'd only been on them for, what, a week? Two? )

Title: Always Fine (parts 1-5)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil(/Carlos), Earl
Rating: G
Disclaimer/warnings: Not my characters, just borrowing. Severe depression in part 4.

A series of five vignettes, each titled to reflect the episode they go with.

Cecil deals with, and/or tries not to acknowledge, the Carlos-related stresses brought up in various episodes. Earl does his best to offer food, friendship, and words of support.

( "I was worried you might have forgotten that you used to have hobbies — you know, bowling, wood-carving, making fun of the moon, that kind of thing." )

Title: A Dragon at the Opera
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Hiram McDaniels, OCs
Rating: G
Disclaimer/warnings: Not mine; no warnings.

In an alternate dimension of an alternate multiverse, Hiram takes a friend to see a show.

(Bonus ficlet from the His Dark Materials AU. Will be confusing and/or spoilery unless you've read through the end of Book 2.)

( "It sounded like she just called me a 'snack' instead of a 'creature'." )

Title: This Rabbit Hole Never Ends (1-2)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, Steve, others
Rating: G
Disclaimer/warnings: Not my characters, just borrowing.

Cecil agrees to move to the otherworld desert to live with Carlos, and discovers that even when they're in a new and unfamiliar place, their relationship hasn't changed.

An anniversary, and a snapshot of what came after.

( Cecil shook himself. What was he doing, dwelling on past stresses? Tonight was supposed to be for celebrating. )
ptahrrific: Cecil and Carlos with science in the dark (night vale)
Title: When Can I Say That I Love You (and not have it be a lie?)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Subject: Cecil/Carlos
Rating: G

A mix for a relationship in trouble.

Carlos keeps shifting goalposts without being upfront about why. Cecil is pointedly in denial about the hints that something's wrong. They're stuck in a holding pattern of not saying what they mean, and having what they say ring increasingly hollow.

Title is from the lyrics of Episode 67's weather.



Thought this would turn out so well / But I'm beginning to see that instead it's trouble / Into a pattern we fell / Of prolonging the inevitable )
ptahrrific: Jon and Stephen, "Believe in the me who believes in you" (fake news)
Title: Gender Swap
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, Tamika, Frances, TJ, Jackie
Rating: G
Disclaimer/warnings: Not my characters, just borrowing.

Cecil takes Carlos to a fun local Saturday-afternoon swap meet.

(Takes place at some vague, unspecified point in canon. *handwaves*)

( "I have some old genders in the back of my closet that I haven't touched in years; I keep meaning to trade them in. It's so much fun. Have you ever been?" )

Title: The Last Name in the Universe
Fandom: ILLUSIONOID, Welcome to Night Vale, Kakos Industries, The Thrilling Adventure Hour
Characters/Pairings: The Last Man in the Universe
Rating: G
Disclaimer/warnings: Not my characters, just borrowing.

The last man in the universe had a name, once. He'd like to have one again! But how to choose?

( Oh, to have lived in the simpler past, when this kind of dilemma was not possible! Also, when my entire species had not yet been annihilated! )

Title: I Can't Control My Fingers, I Can't Control My Brain
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, Strex operatives
Rating: T
Disclaimer/warnings: Not my characters, just borrowing. Features captivity, physical torture, drugging, and other exciting Strexcorp services.

There was a time when Carlos thought it was a stroke of luck, that he and Cecil had been moved into the same cell.

(AU, probably. Title is a lyric from the Ramones' I Wanna Be Sedated.)

( Cecil stretches out his legs, and Carlos curls up on his side with his head resting on Cecil's thigh. )

Title: Ringtone
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil(/Carlos)
Rating: G
Disclaimer/warnings: Not my characters, just borrowing.

Double drabble (200 words). There's a song stuck in my head, okay, and I'm hoping that inflicting it on the rest of you will help get it out.

( Something's gotta give now / 'Cause I'm dying just to know your name )
ptahrrific: Cecil and Carlos with science in the dark (night vale)
Title: When The Sun Shines, We'll Shine Together
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, Kevin
Rating: T
Disclaimer/warnings: WtNV plot and characters aren't mine. References to character death.

The terrible light never retreated from the otherworld desert. The masked army moved on or were dissolved long ago. With Carlos stranded here, the only thing to keep him alive is his extremely scientific light-blocking invention.

And the only thing to keep Kevin alive is Carlos.

( For himself: strength, stamina, the ability not to lose all hope, and the ability to finally beat this one damn level of Angry Birds he's been stuck on for a solid month now. )

Title: Vacation (Had To Get Away)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, Rochelle, Girl Scouts, Faceless Old Woman, others
Rating: T
Disclaimer: Night Vale and everything related are mine. All mine. Because I am Joseph Fink, creator of Welcome to Night Vale. Yes indeed. The real Joseph Fink, that's me.

Post-episode for "Missing."

They're not fleeing town. Just...going on vacation. At the last minute. With people from all over Night Vale (not rebel sympathizers or anything! just friendly, helpful, ordinary small-town folks!) working together to speed their exit along.

( A trio of yellow helicopters are visible in the sky by the time they burst through the doors. )
ptahrrific: Cecil and Carlos with science in the dark (night vale)
Title: Night Vale: The Musical (Act I, tracks 1-3)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, scientists, Vithya, Lauren, others
Rating: T
Disclaimer/warnings: Night Vale and everything related are the property of Commonplace Books. None of the music is mine, either. (Full songbook.)

One morning, Carlos spontaneously bursts into song on his way to work. Then the people around him start singing backup. Turns out everyone in the greater Night Vale & Desert Bluffs area has started breaking into random musical numbers...just in time to hold the world's most well-choreographed corporate invasion.

Canon-divergent starting from Yellow Helicopters, although in the beginning the main difference is that more of it is set to music. Song links can be found at the end of every chapter.

( Oh, oh, oh, look at my hair / What 'do can compare with mine today? )
