woman scientists

“For a picture that’s only a couple years old, Josie looks so young. It’s her smile, I think. Her smile never aged.”

sorry for the lack of colour and finish on this. i wanted to get this done, but have been busy preparing to move home. it’s not a big move at all, but moving is always stressful. also my tablet pen conked out before i got a chance to do flat colours and the text, whoops.

but this scene! it’s just so…i’ve been listening to this show for almost four years now, and it’s like these characters have become a wee, strange, fictional family to me, and so this seriously hit me on several personal levels, right in my heart. this was just such a sad, yet sweet moment between josie and her friends, i’m glad they got a chance to meet <3

Night Vale Moodboard The Angels (All named Erika)

She brought me to the lighthouse in her strange desert that is like our own, but is not our own. She introduced me to an army of men and women who have taken great care of her. And introduced me to several tall, winged creatures, each named Erika. With a K.”

Welcome to Night Vale
Episode 48 - Renovations

A Night Vale Alphabet

Best if read in the voice of Cecil Palmer (Beware of spoilers)

A’s for the Tracker (Apache, he said)

Not quite as embarrassing now that he’s dead.

B’s for Big Rico, best under the sun.

No one does pizza like Rico, NO ONE.

C’s for the council, with crowns of soft meat.

They’re off on a clearly pre-scheduled retreat.

D is for Dana, or maybe her twin.

It’s hard to say which of them managed to win.

E is for Emmett, or Ernest some claim.

It’s hard to remember him, even his name.

F is the Faceless Old Woman who roams

Unseen just behind you. She lives in your home.

G IS THE GLOW CLOUD, BENEATH WHOM WE FLAIL.
“ALL GLORY” WE CRY UNTO IT, “ALL HAIL.”

H is for Hiram and all of his heads,

A literal dragon who ran from the feds.

I’s for the Interns who’ve come and who’ve gone.

We send our condolences, then we move on.

J is John Peters (The farmer. You know.)

Folks love the invisible corn that he grows.

K is for Kevin who worked here a while.

Beware of the lies hiding under his smile.

L can be found on the edge of the town

It’s old Larry Leroy. He’s always around.

M is for Marcus, the town’s richest man.

I’d tell you what happened, but I don’t think I can.

N is for Nazr, the school’s football coach.

His tongue’s pretty creepy. I wouldn’t approach.

O’s Old Woman Josie, whom we dearly missed,

Surrounded by friends who do not exist.

P is for Pamela, mayor no more,

A press conference chief with surprises in store.

Q is a question you never will voice.

No “shouldn’t” about it. You don’t have a choice.

R is for Roger, who paid with a spine.

It bought him a condo and terror sublime.

S is for Steve. I’ll try not to rant.

He once saved my life by- No, sorry. I can’t.

T’s for Tamika, that lover of books.

She’s already found, so don’t bother to look.

U’s for the people just under lane five.

They’ll only rest when we’re no longer alive.

V is the vague yet menacing team

That works for the government. So it would seem.

W is for worms…(ellipsis, no caps)

If you can’t find your dog, it’s the pellet that yaps.

X has been cancelled, we’re sorry to say.

There’s nothing to see here, so be on your way.

Y is for you, it just so turns out.

You’re sometimes the one that the story’s about.

Z is the sound once you’ve turned out the light,

So Carlos and I wish you all a good night.

Leading up to marriage confirmation like...
  • Show title: Toast
  • Me: TOAST!?!? DOES THAT MEAN!?!
  • Show: *mentions celebration*
  • Show: *mentions champagne*
  • WTNV: *mentions parties*
  • WTNV: *mentions love*
  • Me: oh, come on. PLEASE BE THEIR WEDDING
  • WTNV: *love sonnets*
  • Me: *squeals*
  • WTNV: *presents a live song for the weather*
  • Me: *dies*
  • WTNV: *presents Steve Carlsburg*
  • WTNV: *presents old woman Josie*
  • Me: YES, THEY ARE GETTING MARRIED.
  • WTNV: *presents Carlos' vows*
  • Me: *begins to cry*
  • WTNV: *presents Cecil's vows*
  • Me: *has officially altered into a hyper sphere of happiness*

Lots of Carlos mentions this episode, but still no “my HUSBAND, Carlos”. Also ANGELS ARE REAL! THEY EXIST!

Mountains do not.

I feel so bad for Cecil, he loves Josie like a radio host loves a weird neighbourly grandmother figure who has nude winged friends following her every command.

Josie will be sorely missed.

The memories are not real

Do not listen to them

They do not exist

We are alive

We are mostly corporeal

And we are all made of stardust and carbon. And sand.

"Love is Neat"

For all those who doubted the amount of fangirl in me and asked if my glow cloud actually glowed. Don’t want to spoil anything about last night’s episode but let me just tell you-Things Fell Apart.

I’m giving up the idea that for a woman scientist to be taken seriously she has to give up her femininity I’m gonna wear cute ass dresses and makeup and I’m gonna be published and have the most sought after research position and I’m gonna walk over the tears of these salty boys in my Louis Vuittons
