“Well, you are not going to believe this. Probably, like, you won’t even understand. I gave her the recording of me hopping. I know that, like, ruins it because now someone else has listened to it, but somehow I don’t mind if Maureen hears it. I think, maybe even I like that. I hope she comes back soon.“

i hadn’t intended anything for valentine’s day specifically, i’ve just been meaning to do some art of michelle and maureen for a while. these two are just so sweet ;___; ❤︎

but hey, i’ll just roll with it. happy valentine’s to these galentine’s, and to everyone else today!

I mean, don’t get me wrong. I love it when the record store is empty, when there are none of those annoying customers clamoring for music to listen to. Being alone is the best.
But I also kind of like it when Maureen comes by. Her being here is cool too, I guess.
I just have to figure out what album to show her next. Only, there’s so much good music, you know? - Michelle Nguyen about intern Maureen, The April Monologues

I’ve been selling her blank CDs for years now and telling her that’s Panic! at the Disco’s aesthetic, that they just release completely silent songs with no titles on albums with no tracks or cover art and no name. It’s really funny, except for, their new album really did come out and it’s called “Quit Fabricating Our Musical Career, Michelle,” so I’m a little freaked out by that. But also, I think I’m really impacting the future of music.

The Dark Knight’s leading Ladies throughout the years.

I hate Panic! at the Disco. I’ve never actually heard their music, so I don’t actually hate them so much as resent them. Or rather, resent what they stand for. Or rather, resent what I believe that they stand for. Or rather, resent my perception of other people’s projections of what they stand for. Or rather, myself.

“Michelle Nguyen and former Intern Maureen were leaning casually outside, smoking candy cigarettes. This took a lot of re-lighting, as candy cigarettes do not burn well at all.” - Welcome To Night Vale, Episode 89


*quickly doodles hipster gfs smoking candy cigarettes even though it probably wouldn’t look like this*  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

WTNV spoilers

Michelle Nguyen is autistic.

She prefers white noise to music. (Bees, washing machine, distant highway, hopping, etc.)
She spent a significant amount of time hopping on the carpet at the back of her store in socks just to listen to how it sounds.
She uses repetitive language. (“Sighing Maureen”)
She uses physical description to talk about the feelings of others. (“Hands fluttering” rather than “she looked nervous” (in other news, MAUREEN STIMS!!!))
She doesn’t really express her own emotions well.
She complains about noise and crowds.
She likes being alone or maybe with one other person she trusts.

Michelle is autistic and you cannot convince me otherwise.
