I don’t remember where or when or who originally found this horrible mspaint crying elephant. All I know is that for the past few years Pyro and Rhi have ambushed each other with it because it has this weird ability to make them both sad and happy at the same time. I swear to god I’ve seen these two adult bumblefucks laughing and tearing up over this shitty-ass elephant.

Anyway, in celebration of October I photoshopped it into a ghost costume and made it the image for the skype chat.

And this is how we end the chapter :D hope you guys liked it

& didn’t get bored of it , have a nice day :)

I’ve got a bit of a mouse problem. Or it could be an elephant problem. It’s hard to say based on the amount of noise the stupid rodents make in the middle of the night. After a few weeks of attempting to end the problem with poison and traps, I gave up today and called an exterminator. 

I didn’t know of any particular exterminator to call so I asked a few friends with homes. None of them had any recommendations. Evidently, I’m the only one living in such filth that my house feels like the kind of place that might ground zero for a new wave of the bubonic plague.

So, I asked Google, which sent me to Orkin. Allison answered the phone at Orkin. She was friendly and helpful and seemed fully ready to commiserate with me about rodents. The system at Orkin involves answering so many questions that by the time Allison got around to giving me a price, I felt confident she knew me better than most of my friends. Then she told me the price. I laughed, assuming my good, old friend Allison must be joking.

According to Orkin, it might actually be cheaper for me to just remove myself from my home rather than the rodents. I asked if there was any cheaper alternative—a package, a first-timer’s discount, anything. Nope. But that was when Allison started hard selling: “Sarah, this may be more than you expected, but it will be successful. At the end of the day, you’ll have nothing to lose but the rodents.”

"I enjoy what you’re doing with that play on words Allison, but for that price, I’ll also lose my ability to feed myself next month."

"Sarah, we’re here to break the pest cycle," she said. "Next month, things like rodents, termites, cockroaches, and silverfish will be a distant memory."

I didn’t know what silverfish were, but I didn’t want to tell Allison that. I’d already let her in on my rodent infestation secret and I felt like she was taking advantage of my trust a little early in our friendship. “Yeah, I’m mostly just worried about the rodents,” I said. “Is there really nothing cheaper available?”

"Sarah, DO YOU KNOW fast rodents procreate?" Allison asked. Suddenly, I felt like maybe Allison and I weren’t meant to be friends. Our interests were definitely different. "They INBREED! Mothers and sons and sisters and brothers and aunts and uncles and then there ARE HUNDREDS AND EVENTUALLY THOUSANDS OF MICE ALL OVER YOUR HOME! THEIR DISEASES KILLS PETS AND PEOPLE!"

I sat silently for a moment after this outburst. Partially, because I was shaking with laughter and didn’t want Allison to hear and partially because I felt like Allison is probably a pretty normal person who has become way too inundated in her job and I wanted her to realize that she’d gone over the edge. We’ve all been there.

Ultimately, I opted to go with a different exterminator. Mostly because I could afford the other one and still afford to feed myself. But also because while I love crazy people, I already have some regrets about giving my address to Allison.

Some night vale thoughts, of course.

Can I just say how proud I am of Cecil’s character development in this episode?

After September Monologues came out, I made a post (it’s somewhere.. Floating around in the void.. Still gathering notes occasionally) about how I really wanted to see Cecil put in more conflicting situations which challenged his worldview and I GOT MY WISH.

As everyone else seems to be saying, it’s pretty clear that this new story arc is going to be centered around challenging Night Vales strict rules and traditions. The contrast between this episode and the last just set up this theme so beautifully- in the span of two episodes, we have watched Cecil go from leading an angry mob against something he doesn’t even bother to understand, to being forced to question everything he stands for in order to learn more about a loved one.

The fact that Carlos is an outsider has been an elephant in the room from day 1- no one seemed willing to talk about it because Night Vale loves Carlos, and to love an outsider in Night Vale comes with some major cognitive dissonance. The first time we hear this even pointed out at all post-pilot-episode is when Steve Carlsberg mentions it to Cecil in Old Oak Doors.. But even then, let’s think about how Cecil chose to react;

"Steve Carlsberg, are you accusing my boyfriend of being a secret operative? Because.. That would be pretty cool, actually"

Yes, I have laughed many times at this sentence, but now I can’t help but notice that Cecil clearly felt the need to defend and justify Carlos’s outsider-ness. Even if the justification was “cool”, it’s still a justification where one shouldn’t be needed.

We’ve been waiting patiently since Old Oak Doors for the year three arc to coagulate. Now Cecil has realized the “dangerous combination of suppression and indoctrination” that night vale possesses, and I think that is the first real spark that is needed to set this story in motion.

The Strex arc was all about confronting our oppressors. This arc will be about confronting ourselves. And that, listeners, is a story I think we all need to hear.
