We will never be the same again. But here’s a little secret for you—no one is ever the same thing again after anything. You are never the same twice, and much of your unhappiness comes from trying to pretend that you are. Accept that you are different each day, and do so joyfully, recognizing it for the gift it is. Work within the desires and goals of the person you are currently, until you aren’t that person anymore, and everything changes once again.
(Cecil, Welcome to Night Vale, Episode 75) That is legitimately some of the most helpful advice I’ve ever heard.
I love Welcome to Night Vale because on one hand you have profound and meaningful quotes about existence and on the other hand you have quotes like “Mountains? More like nothings.” and “what’s an egg?” and it’s beautiful
what if carlos wears normal shirts all the time time but cecil just assumes they’re all various types of lab coats. like his “laid-back weekend lab coat” is just a flannel shirt and his “running lab coat” is a windbreaker or something but cecil decides since carlos is a scientist of COURSE everything he does and wears must be scientific
Night Vale has proven that you can have a dramatic romance story without having the characters go through break-ups, affairs, love triangles, and other typical TV drama we’re so use to. The sources of drama in the relationship are also very relatable; Cecil having to realize that Carlos isn’t perfect, Carlos being a workaholic, etc. However, despite these challenges it always remains clear that the two still love each other and are happier together than apart. The story isn’t centered on the obstacles their relationship face, but on the love they have for each other that sees them through those obstacles. That is how you write a romance my friends!
