Might just be my back and leg killing me or the terror that Saturday’s GBS flare up brought out in me, but why do fan artists alway draw hemi chairs/ push chairs when they are drawing Janice from Welcome to Nightvale or any of wheelchair user headcanons for any fandoms? I mean do people not see wheelchairs enough to realize that hemi chairs aren’t at all practical for everyday use. I had one for a few weeks in an extremely hilly and muddy campus it was awful… Most of the time I had another one of my friends in a power chair giving me a tow.
We know Nightvale is a town that cares… They were willing to piss off the Glow Cloud in hope that the charter school would get a wheelchair ramp, so maybe the fans could… I don’t know take the time to learn that there are different kind of wheelchairs out there that people use for daily use.
Disabled Night Valians having three-headed service dogs
Khoshekh as a floating service cat for Cecil
Night Vale having the most expansive variety of service animals ranging from spider-wolves to baby raccoons to service flies (who are also house-trained).
Night Vale service animals. Just think about it.
Even if you know it, it’s always good to hear that you’re loved
Im very surprised I haven’t seen anyone draw Janice in her wheelchair yet
i think Janice might fast be becoming one of my favorite WTNV characters O.O i really am looking forward to hearing more about her (and her uncle!) in future episodes

Ok, can we talk about autistic!Carlos communicating about his sensory needs with Cecil.
Cecil giving Carlos space after sex to sensorially integrate.
Carlos asking for joint compressions and comforting pressure after a stressful day at his loud lab.
Cecil asking before he touches Carlos when he can tell he’s overwhelmed.
So earlier Mixxy and I were discussing my disabled!Vale headcanon of Cecil having arthritis from his battle with Lyme disease, and we got onto the topic of the obviously badass cane he would sport, and I promised I’d draw it. So here it is! I apologize for the awful color quality; my scanner pretty much butchers any coloration like it’s a hope and dream, and even though you can’t tell, it’s colored over and outlined with a clear glitter gel pen. :)
IT’S SO PERFECT
Cecil’s cane: Cooler than you since forever.
But seriously the note about the talon like now I have this mental image of Carlos struggling to open a bottle of wine and Cecil just reaches over and pops it open with the claw on his cane.
Just the thing to go with the furry pants and tunic.
Good news: the Night Vale Tourism Board has hired interpreters proficient in both ASL and NVSL for the noisy sunsets in Old Town Night Vale so that d/Deaf citizens and visitors may fully appreciate the unholy ambiance!
FINALLY! I’ve finally triumphed over technological issues with Youtube and captioning! HERE IT IS:
Part 1: Click here!
Part 2: Click here!
Captioning can be turned on by clicking on the ‘cc’ button on bottom right corner of the video.
Enjoy the creepy glow cloud scene and ridiculous mini music movie that my friends and I’ve spent less than 10 minutes making it. :P
And thank you all so much for awesome support <3
AND! AND! I’ve added ASL Gloss to both videos!
Now, you can click on ‘cc’ and click on ‘ASL Gloss’ if you want to see exact english word that exactly matched what I said in ASL. Gloss is helpful for you to find out what exactly I was signing— it’ll help you to learn how to sign important stuff like ‘glow cloud’ and ‘void that can think’. (Other subtitle option, ‘English language’ is written English’ exactly what the hearing Cecil said on broadcast) ((and yep I’ll add ASL gloss to first episode as well, soon!))
Part 1 of Draw Every Cecil Wearing the Clothes In My Closet
1. Japanese American Cecil with hearing aids, wearing my space sweater and flouncy yellow skirt and hello kitty necklace. He also has some scars on his face.
2. Filipino Cecil with green hair, an assortment of jewelry from my drawer, my yellow/orange/scarlet top, my pale purple leggings, and my ribbon headband.
More to come. Ok to reblog. Colored pencils and pitt pens on regular ass paper.
