Say it with me now:

  • Carlos is not being abusive by being unable to physically be in Night Vale
  • Carlos is not being abusive by enjoying his time in the Desert Otherworld
  • Seriously guys Night Vale is a really stressful place to live actually especially for an outsider and I don’t see why you think Carlos should be scrabbling to get back there when for the first time he doesn’t have to worry about being killed or tortured every time he does anything
  • Carlos finding the Desert Otherworld scientifically interesting and doing science there is in no way abusive to Cecil
  • It’s really juvenile and toxic thinking to equate Carlos having interests outside of Cecil to Carlos not caring about Cecil
  • Carlos and Cecil talk supposedly on a daily basis and communicate regularly and Carlos projects himself there occasionally just so Cecil can see him
  • Carlos wants to be with Cecil just as much as Cecil wants to be with Carlos
  • They are literally making plans to be together as soon as Cecil gets vacation time and they can find a way to get Cecil there
  • Cecil missing his boyfriend is not equivalent to Cecil being abused by his partner
  • Cecil is not being abused in this relationship
  • Cecil’s declining mental/emotional state is due to a large number of factors including his own lack of autonomy, possible betrayal by a close friend, and numerous other things that are difficult for him especially in the wake of the whole Strex thing
  • Cecil and Carlos are two goddamn adults in an adult relationship and neither one of them is perfect but they accept this and celebrate this and they love each other
