night vale spoilers

Which is to say, scientifically speaking of course, speaking from the point of view of mere facts and logic and you know, what with the science and all…  I just thought that it was time for us to make a life together.
—  Carlos the Scientist, Toast (episode 100)

Thoughts on Episode 102 - Love is a Shambling Thing:

  • Time to travel a considerable distance to stick a sticker on my sibling.
  • Does City Council have a home? Do they have a mortgage?
  • “Here’s your Valentine’s Day card, Carlos.” “Why are you wearing a hazmat suit?”
  •  Well, we got a few happy episodes before this one.
  • Luuuuuurv. 
  • Is Cecil bankrupt because of all the fines he has to pay for being unfashionable? Is that why he’s surprised he gets paid for his job? Money goes in, immediately paid out for those sponge clogs with that poncho.
  • I shop at Clearly Not Amazon too.
  • “Everything is going to be alright.” Did you hear the Old Woman Josie story, Weather?
  • Love just needs a friend.
  • Actually, Love is terrifying.
  • Is City Council’s entire slogan in the Night Vale Valentine’s cards? Can it be?
  • “Live every day like it’s your first.” Time to cry when I get hungry.

God… Cecil’s tone of voice though when he broke the news about old woman Josie. There was such a quiet anger in it. An anger about the inevitability of it all. And that line about what timeline just gave me shivers. He’s not going to be in a good place with all this going on. I’m glad he’s got his husband there to help him through it.
