The Cecilos household definitely has one of those chalkboard checklists you put in kitchens that says “things we need , things we want, things we don’t need”

Under “things we need”:

  • Cat food
  • New microwave after popcorn incident 
  • Sprinkles (yes, we need them)
  • More rainbow chalk
  • Offering for Parade of the Hooded Figures (before next Tuesday!!!)

Under “things we want”:

  • Feather boas 
  • A small drawing of a lab coat with a price tag that says “new” on it
  • An infinite number of cat toys

Under “things we don’t need”:

  • Matching socks 
  • Wheat or wheat byproducts
  • Glitter in popcorn 
  • Hats on animals that are easily angered and have more teeth than sharks 

Hey.

So.

Cecil’s an Aquarius.

His birthday is anytime between January 20th and February 18th.

So around this time of the year, imagine Carlos surprising Cecil at the NVCR Station with a homemade birthday cake (with “Happy Birthday Cecil :)” sloppily but lovingly written on the top in frosting) and the interns singing a municipally approved birthday song and Cecil just being really happy and flattered that they remembered.

it's 1 AM I need to write something

why are we not talking about how important this whole “cecil rebelling” thing is like holy shit guys think about it

Last year, when Cecil was assigned to re-education, he had no problem with going through that hell and being off the air for a few weeks.

but now, with Josie’s death, he managed to smart his way out of re-education ?? he avoided it and continued to flaunt that angels are real it’s like he doesn’t care anymore he’s just like “fuck the government i believe this deal with it”

it’s strangely poetic

Carlos enjoys wiggling at his desk chair when he’s having a hard time thinking of things. Cecil doesn’t understand science very well, and Carlos is terrible at explaining his work, so he just sort of… wobbles to and fro, wiggling his fingers while he looks around his lab, vaguely confused.
Cecil loves it. He thinks it’s a very scientific mannerism.

When Cecil or Carlos get sick, they each have very different (but affective) ways of caring for each other 

  • When Carlos gets sick, he insists that he’s fine until he get’s force fed soup and admits defeat
  • Cecil has so many quilts and blankets where did they come froM 
  • Carlos cannot be seen he’s in blanket kingdom now 
  • Cecil will not leave until Carlos is 100% healthy again
  • (Carlos has no problem with this tactic)
  • When Cecil gets sick, he still insists on doing the radio
  • Carlos makes sure that Cecil sleeps right after though
  • Also Carlos tells more science jokes than usual when Cecil is sick because “laughter is the best medicine”

I always love the idea of Carlos doing normal shit and Cecil freaking out.

“Carlos what is that”
“It’s a pen”
“CARLOS THATS ILLEGAL”
“What am I meant to make notes with then Ceec?”

“Hey Ceec, want a sandwich?”
“W h a t”
“I’m making sandwiches. Or I can do pasta if you want?”
“CARLOS THOSE ARE WHEAT OR WHEAT BY-PRODUCTS WHAT ARE YOU DOING??”

“Happy Valentine’s Day Ceec!”
“CARLOS ARE YOU TRYING TO GET US KILLED???”

carlos loves to listen to really loud music, especially when he’s working, and one day cecil freaks out cause he thinks carlos is somehow controlling the weather

“CARLOS NO THAT’S ILLEGAL YOU’VE KILLED US ALL!” “cecil no im playing this from spotify, look, see?” “whats…. spot tif fie? is this some sort of science thing you made?“ "you… ok you know what never mind i’ll show you later”

cecil ends up liking being able to just play music, but he’s really bad at using the app, so he has one song per playlist. just one song, and he keeps switching between 200 playlists

carlos eventually helps him out and he gets everything organized into a normal ish playlist

one day carlos decides to play cecil’s playlist – it’s just different frequencies of fish screaming underwater

cecil calls it “new age heavy metal”

Ahh Science ?

In wtnv it always seems that Carlos is the sensible and mature one and Cecil is the silly fan girl in there relationship . But In reality I think that half the time Cecil comes home to find Carlos doing something weird, Like trying to balance stuff on top of etchother or having one sided conversations with inanimate objects.
Or planing out conversation out loud.

Once he came home to find Carlos laying on his back on the sofa with his arms in the air holding a spoon making silly airplane noises.

Cecil would watch for a little wile just falling I love with him all the more.

After a bit he would pipe In saying ‘whatcha doing"

Carlos would jump blushing furiously trying to play whatever he was doing as something normal.
He would always answer. “ ahh science? Yea I’m doing science ”

Cecil would just smile fondly at his perfect man coming over for kisses and cuddles. With an affectionate “oh your so clever. All that science must be tiering . You better come snuggle with me I don’t want you overworking yourself.

Carlos would smile too. He liked being the little spoon. It was worm and he got to trace all the markings of Cecil’s tattoos .

Cecil makes those little Self-Care reminder type announcements you see all over tumblr on the Radio.

Sometimes they’re reminders to the town in the face of disaster. “Did you remember to tie down your garbage cans? Remember, it’s garbage CAN fly away, not garbage can’t!”

Sometimes it’s a reminder to himself for things. “Did you remember to lock the door this morning? Yes. Yes? Yes definitely yes.”

Most of the times though, they’re subtly aimed Carlos’s way, because since Cecil found out how sometimes he forgets to eat and drink water and take breaks when at work or even at home, the host was determined to help. So he slips little reminders and prompts into the show. “Have you had a break today? You work so hard. Take a ten minute break to recharge.”

Or “have you had eight cups of water today? Remember, it’s not just a good idea, it’s the law!”

Or even reminders like “have you considered the fact you are incredibly loved by a lot of people today? Not a person, not even just two or three persons, a lot of people. A lot of people care about you and love you immensely, even when they aren’t right there at this moment, even if they don’t say it outright. You are incredibly loved, dear listener. Even you, Steeeeeve Carlsberrrrrg.”

Random Kevin Headcanon

Pre-Strex Kevin was never a morning person. It’s why, despite his sunny personality, he had an afternoon radio show, rather than a morning show. Despite this, he was often a few seconds late to his show every day because Kevin LOATHED mornings to the point of hiding under his covers, almost biting the fingers of anyone who dared try to wake him.

Vanessa was one of the few people who could coax him out of his blanket nests and live to tell the tale, though it was with many promised cups of caffeinated tea and vague threats of Station Management “having words” with him. Most shows started with him clearly still at least semi-asleep.

StrexCorp made sure to fix that abhorrent, unproductive trait of his when they took over.
