also, the great thing abt wtnv that im rediscovering is that it does not ever, ever let you forget that cecil is gay and it doesnt make his attraction to carlos into a gay joke. its funny, sometimes, but in a more honestly comedically written way. like “i fell in love instantly” is funny in its abruptness but not funny because its gay. u feel me??
im trying to say that the show establishes how cecil feels abt carlos from ep 1 and doesnt ever let u forget abt it or sweep it under the rug and i love it. every “carlos” is followed by “perfect carlos” or “handsome carlos” or “beautiful carlos” and it genuinely hits a point where its sweet and funny all at the same time and the joke is never the gay attraction itself.
so. thanks night vale for that really really good writing, especially bc i listened to some episodes in the car with my mom and she laughed the first time it came up and then realized it wasnt actually a gay joke but rather, actual good writing and i love seeing straight people thrown for a loop like that
