I’m not saying Carlos is
perfectdorky enough to have his wheelchair painted up like a Jurassic Park jeep, but…he totally is.
OMG sorry if this is all wrong but wheelchairs and science are two things I’m VERY unfamiliar with!
One day, Carlos sets up a lightning rod and leaves a tablet at the base. He waits a while, dressed in rubber boots and a Faraday suit, and then there is a loud boom of thunder. He takes a few deep, calming breaths before marching back over there, where a very annoyed sentient bolt of lightning is stuck in the tablet as an electronic current.
He politely greets the lightning bolt, apologizing for stopping it from its daily routine, and then issues his terms. The perfect scientist had heard about what the lightning bolt did to one of Night Vale’s high school football players. If it ever tries to do that again to anyone without their freely given consent, Carlos states, he will ground the lightning bolt. Permanently. With science.
The lightning bolt gets the message and avoids interfering with people’s lives again.
Talking with atalantapendrag about Megan Wallaby.
Lanta: Megan and Tamika should be friends!
Me: they should!
Lanta: If I could art I would do a picture of them holding hands walking somewhere. Or have Megan perched on Tamika’s shoulder!
Lanta: THEY COULD INVESTIGATE THINGS because Megan can get into tight places
Me: Flynn and Wallaby, Girl Detectives
Me: i’m trying to find whether [WTDV] mentioned a one-handed variant of NVSL anywhere [note: this is the post I was thinking of]
Me: so i can refer to it accurately if so
Lanta: Maybe Megan has adapted one herself, or uses fingerspelling or morse code, or a combination of the three
Me: although it would probably have to be modified further for Megan since she’s not attached to an arm. yeah that’s what i was thinking
Lanta: I mean obvs she has, she communicates with her parents
Lanta: and she reacts to her environment canonically so she’s got some sort of senses
ETA: Tamika prefers to sign anyway, ever since the Summer Reading Program. If you’re not quiet, the librarians get you.
never thought a detached grown man’s hand can cause so many emotions

Dear, dear followers, we’d love to hear your thoughts on disability politics in the recent episode!
At least he remembered where to go. That’s something.
And you know he’ll have to excuse himself to go back and check on his lab equipment.
Without panel borders, because my Krita is a jerk and the comic features don’t work properly in the version I’m stuck with right now.
… Sketch brushes~ You are so messy, but I love you.
Listeners, I think we’ve all had a moment or 247 like this, right?
So it occured to Phoebonica and I that Carlos and Cecil might one day want a kitten that can come home with them. Of course they would tease each other by naming her Mountain! It made me remember a dream I had years ago about a sky blue kitten with four blue eyes, which we agreed sounded like a Night Vale sort of kitten.
Look what came in today’s mail! My very own crocheted-with-love Mountain, to be tucked snugly in a pocket whenever I have to go outside (especially to the therapist!). Deep love and thanks to Phoebonica, and to Welcome to Night Vale, and to Night Vale fandom.

So a few weeks ago I did THIS thing, and now I am doing more things! Go me!
DESERT BLUFFS: First off, the word Desert? It’s a total mess. S, R, and T in one word, with only D and E to calm them down and break up the fights? Yikes. Compared to Desert, Bluffs is calm. I’d even say dull.
DESERT: Like I said, this word is a mess. D and E are trying their best to keep the word in order, but T, R, and S aren’t making it easy. R and T are trying to rip each other’s throats out, while S ‘hides’ behind a terrified E. I have hides in quotation marks, mostly because S is loving this. So while T and R fight, E and D are trying to take control. E can’t do much of anything with S holding him in front of her, and he’s, like, 15-17. He’s not going to get between 2 adults with knives. D isn’t having much luck either. He can’t get to R or T, and he doesn’t want to risk getting hurt anyways.
Not a good word at all, very violent. 3 Men, 2 women.
BLUFFS: Compared to Desert, Bluffs is small potatoes. B stays quiet, to herself, probably texting A, despite L's attempts to talk and chat. Eventually, L gets pulled into talk with U about something. U is very calm, and thinks that L should stop pestering B. She just doesn’t want to talk! And then there’s F, stuck standing with S. S is more mellow when she’s around F…Possibly because S has never felt jealous of F or any attraction to her. Also because everyone likes F. And because F's brother has a gun collection and a temper issue.
All in all, a quiet word, the complete opposite of Desert. All women.
(Tomorrow I’ll do Carlos and Erika uwu)
*hisses* Desert Bluffs
A follower suggested I draw cecilos. of course I got a teeny bit too carried away. i like to imagine that even though cecil could’ve noticed carlos with his omnipresenceness, he didn’t b/c he was too busy daydreaming about carlos while wtnv-ing. ahh the irony uwu
The Faceless Old Woman who secretly lives in the Glow Cloud’s home is its kids’ favorite babysitter. They are quite delighted to be looked after some nights by an entity who is faceless, like themselves.
(When she is busy, the Man in the Tan Jacket will sometimes step in. No one has ever described his face either, so they like him too.)
