“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

‘I would trade all of Night Vale for you,’ Cecil said. He kissed Carlos again. A lengthy kiss that smashed their lips and hurt a little. A kiss that expressed not just love, but anxiety and relief. All the worry of the past couple weeks pushed into a kiss. Breaking off he added, ‘But I would really prefer not to. You stay away from desert otherworlds.’

All of this was broadcast on the radio. Cecil broadcast almost everything he did on the radio, to the gentle exasperation of an understanding town.

The cloud in the corner of the sky glowed, changing colors every second and dropping dead animals long before animals ever existed. I sat cross-legged in a lake for 10,000 years.


But nothing lasts forever, not even us.
