Killian Jones + Being 100% done in the season 3 finale.
So here’s some pics of my Man in the Tan Jacket cosplay from Colossal con. Its still sort of a WIP, I need to add the flies all over the jacket still and fix some other small things.
Oh and I had speakers in the suit case so it had the flies buzzing inside it. Creeped some people out. :D
The pin on my lapel says ‘nightvale fly salesman’
Remember when Martha fast-forwarded through parts of the video in Human Nature and Family of Blood?
This is what she was actually fast-forwarding through.
4 FOR YOU TENNANT.
THIS MAN IS PERFECT
they’re freedom worms
it’s really heartening to know that even big tough marine dudes do the sleeping bag thing
i like how in the first GIF he just kind rolls and plops off his bed, and then other people join him in the thing
Just a few thoughts I had last night, when listening to The September Monologues. (I listened to it to get to sleep, but it didn’t work, because it made me laugh and think too much.)
Many fans feel bad for Steve Carlsberg after hearing that episode. I realized I don’t.
The way Steve is depicted here tells us he’s smarter, or more insightful, or just braver, than Cecil. He sees the dotted lines. Maybe everyones does but they deny it? Maybe that’s what “mostly void” means? Maybe “void” is code for “dotted lines and circles we’re not allowed to acknowledge”?
Either way, Steve has his conviction that this is important. He’s willing to take the scorn of even his wife and daughter, just to get to the bottom of this truth. His life has a purpose. Even if he doesn’t really understand it, it’s worth losing the love and respect of others. He’s really very powerful, because he’s willing to lose it all.
Cecil is shielding himself from too much knowledge. He wants to trust the authorities and the protection they give, because he’s scared. Maybe his hate for Steve Carlsberg is not only based on the threat to Janice, but a threat to himself: Steve makes him look at things he doesn’t want to see. This might be the reason Cecil has survived so many things in Night Vale. He doesn’t pose a threat to the city council or the sheriff’s secret police; he’s a good mouthpiece for them. Steve would never survive in such a job.
Cecil’s contentment and peace of mind is frail, it requires drinking and denial. Steve doesn’t settle for this. His peace of mind, if he ever reaches it, will be more real and based on something less vulnerable.
We all, all of us, so often fail at what we want to do. That’s OK, as long as we understand our failure. As long as we see it. I see my failure to help my community the way I would like to help it.

Cecil does not understand his failure or see it. He sees only what he wants to see.
This is why I think Steve will be OK.
