all the hail the mighty glow cloud

All hail that which did not create us, but can certainly destroy us.
—  Welcome to Night Vale, episode 93

And here we have it! First prize, ‘any drawing of your choice.’ Our winner asked for the migHTY GLOW CLOUD ALLHAIL. There is Kai’s wonderful original art and then some fun edits I did! We hope you like it @just–void

So my 10 year old sister spent ages pointing to the sky for some reason and for some reason I felt the need to put on my best Cecil voice and say “dear listeners, some of you may have noticed a small child pointing to the sky. no one has any idea why the small child is pointing upwards or what she is pointing at but Carlos-”

And a girl on the other side of the road interrupted by yelling “ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY GLOW CLOUD!" 

Night Vale Elementary held a PTA meeting today to discuss adding a library to the school. Steve Carlsberg and several other parents voiced concerns about the addition as a library would require the employment of a librarian. Steve Carlsberg also expressed concerns about the growling PTA members heard coming from beneath the school gym. However, The mighty Glow Cloud (ALL HAIL) relieved all fears PTA members might have by dropping the corpses of several lions on the gymnasium floor.
