Headcanon: Welcome to Night Vale characters on karaoke night

Cecil

  • Song: Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley
  • Unironically enjoys it
  • Stumbles a few times, but Carlos gives him a thumbs-up and he keeps going
  • Maybe a little too confident in his musical abilities; Carlos’s constant praise doesn’t help
Carlos
  • Song: The Calculation by Regina Spektor
  • Throws loving glances to Cecil every five seconds
  • Extremely flattered when Cecil praises his singing (“Aw, I’m not *that* good, Ceec…”)
  • Never realizes he actually has an amazing singing voice
Mayor Cardinal
  • Song: Radio Waves by The Crystalline Effect
  • Reminds her of the desert otherworld, so she has mixed feelings about it
  • Still knows every word, so she sings it anyway
  • City Council nods approvingly in unison for the entire song and a good two minutes after it ends; the next person dares not start until they’re done
Old Woman Josie
  • Song: Girls & Boys by Good Charlotte
  • Prefaces her performance with “My voice isn’t what it used to be, so pardon any mistakes”
  • Proceeds to bellow the lyrics almost to the point of drowning out the music
  • It’s possible the Erikas provide amplification, but nobody knows for sure because everyone looks pointedly away from them for the entire song
Hooded Figures
  • Song: Revolution 9 by The Beatles
  • The whole production is rather awkward because the entire group falls silent and stares deliberately at anything other than the hooded figures
  • Nobody’s sure how they made the sounds needed, and nobody wants to know
  • After the song ends, the group sits there in silence for another five minutes before someone looks up to find a charred circle on the stage and no trace of the figures
  • Intern Kareem excuses himself, citing a need to lie down
Steve Carlsberg
  • Song: Chandelier by Sia
  • Manages to ignore Cecil’s constant muttered criticisms
  • Everyone is extremely impressed by his range- no octave dropping for this man
  • Cecil actually rather enjoyed it but would rather die than tell him

A friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep. Welcome to Night Vale.

WTNV is one of the the things that inspire me most. I am so in love with the concept of the unknown and the unquestioned weirdness of this place.
Whenever I listen to the podcast I get the irresistable urge to express my love for this small dessert town so these 8 (postcard sized) paintings were created and I couldn’t stop myself from sharing them and spreading my love for the lovely people behind my favorite podcast of all times.

Aaah, it’s finally finished oh my god. First time ever using a painting style so I think I did pretty well.
Anywho, here’s my new wallpaper (resized for posting purposes).

It’s supposed to be snowing right now but it’s just super freezing, but what if it  was snowy in Night Vale? 

  • Hooded figures trudging around in the snow, leaving a trail behind them 
  • Everyone wrapped up in various scarves that Old Woman Josie made
  • Cecil keeps at least three boxes of hot chocolate with him at all times
  • Khoshekh cuddles with everyone for warmth
  • There are literally snow angels everywhere
  • Cecil and Carlos can be seen playing in the snow at least once a week
  • City-wide snow ball fights have happened multiple times
  • Cecil always writes encouraging messages or draw little pictures in the snow on the way to work
