we are young and stupid and raised by wolves
(this is not real life. these are not pictures of me. I am 20-something years old and a woman and passionate about politics and fanfiction and, as far as you are concerned, I only exist online.)
it’s almost 11 p.m.
some of them have been out there for nearly six hours
what if all the scenerios we make up in our head are actually real events happening in an alternative universe and we’re actually connecting with our alternate self’s mind
my alternate self is getting some serious dick
does this mean that at least I’m getting laid in the psychosphere
also thank you everyone for the commiseration over my poor stolen bicycle
at least I found my fairly new and pricey helmet nearby, so I didn’t lose that too
tonight I organized and held a picnic for all my neighbors in my 20-unit apartment complex
it was/is a roaring success — I can still hear them talking and laughing out there
I managed two whole hours before I slipped away inside for a short nap, and then just visited them for shorter and shorter periods, until finally I returned to my apartment to make soup and then sit down in front of my computer
well done, me
Steve Carlsberg - Welcome to Night Vale - Episode 53 - The September Monologues
Maybe one of the reasons Cecil is so awful about Steve on the radio (apart from, you know, HE REALLY DOESN’T LIKE STEVE), is that if he ensures that Steve is a laughing stock who no one will listen to, then maybe Janice won’t listen to him and start repeating his ideas, so then Janice will be safe from the Secret Police and the other forces in Night Vale that Steve runs afoul of.
I’m beginning to think that everyone in Night Vale actually already knows all the stuff Steve thinks of as secret (like exactly what the vague yet menacing government agency is) and for some reason Steve just can’t get it through his head that he’s not supposed to talk about it.
I think a lot of Cecil’s behavior towards Steve comes from a mix of frustration that Steve won’t stop trying to talk about forbidden things and genuine concern that Janice is going to take after his bad example.
