Cecil Palmer/Hiram McDaniels/Faceless Old Woman

Welcome to Night Vale

Episode 49 - Old Oak Doors - Part B


Judging by submissions to this blog, she was the most popular of the Mayoral candidates. Marcus and Hiram barely have 10 submissions apiece, while here we have the Top 10 Headcanons about the Faceless Old Woman who Secretly Lives In Your Home.

95) The Faceless Old Woman is an older, alternate dimensional version of Dana, explaining her odd abilities as well as her almost confusion about how people can’t see her.

97) The man in the tan jacket is the faceless old woman’s son. They share a condition which makes it difficult for people to acknowledge them and remember what they look like, which is why the faceless old woman assumes she doesn’t have a face.

111) The Faceless Old Woman really hates the movies Matilda and A Simple Wish. But she especially hates the “adorable” little girl with her “precious” bow that stars in them. Ugh, who would want to be associated with THAT? For some reason though the people in the houses she haunts watch those movies a lot. It’s really quite annoying. But especially that little girl. She’s especially annoying.

111) Mayor Dana is the double. The Faceless Old Woman was watching and saw the original Dana’s defeat. This is why she believes she is the rightful mayor – she knows the original Dana has perished.

124) A French soldier and a Japanese singer who met during WWII got married during the war, and soon the wife was pregnant. But due to the nuclear bombings and radiation effects, their child was able to turn translucent and walk through walls and stuff. Scared and in search of answers, the couple went to America and ended up in Night Vale. No one knows what happened to the couple, but the little girl quickly aged into The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives In Your Home.

129) The Faceless Old Woman used to wear nothing but faded, torn, ghostly Victorian dresses. Since she decided to run for Mayor, she’s been wearing incredibly modern and classy business suits with pencil skirts. Nobody sees her clothes either way; she just likes to feel professional.

143) Slenderman is the Faceless Old Woman’s grandson.

150) The faceless old woman speaks only in telepathy, since she has no mouth. That’s why she sounds like a young woman: she can pick any voice she wants the audience to hear.

154) The Faceless Old Woman and the Man in the Tan Jacket go out for coffee once a week.

187) The Faceless Old Woman who Secretly Lives in Your Home actually has a face. She keeps it in that drawer you never open.

Best moment from "The Debate"

Cecil: [T]here are dozens of deer surrounding this station and trying to peer into the windows.

Hiram: I could go outside and set fire to them if you want, uh. That would be a very mayoral solution.

Faceless Old Woman: That’s a fool’s errand, Hiram. Did you never play Deer Duck Dragon? Dragon beats duck, but deer beats dragon?

Hiram: So we– we– we need a duck?

FOW: No! Deer beats duck, too! Deer beats everything! It’s a terrible game.
