The fact that Cecil Baldwin could have scrolled through the Welcome to Night Vale tag and glanced at one of my Cecile Palmer rp posts makes me so unbelievably happy after the awful day I’ve just had. You don’t even know.
If you haven’t seen this yet, you’re missing out big time. This is amazing!
On my second blog, cecile-palmer-blog.tumblr.com, I roleplay as Fem!Cecil. So far, I’ve gotten through the first 15 episodes in her voice, but the next episode I plan to blog about is “The Phone Call.” As many of you know, this requires a guest appearance from a certain scientist. Only problem is, I don’t have a scientist.
I need some help. I don’t want to skip over this episode, but I can’t do it alone. If you’re interested, please email the following address:
Keep in mind, this will involve both cosplaying and voice work (for the phone calls). I could really use some help here.
I like the idea that Janice has newspaper clippings of Tamika Flynn on her bedroom walls, and she reads big classics so that she can impress Tamika, and she begged Steve to let her join the Book Club, and cried when he said no because “Tamika will never like her now!” And Tamika looks at young Janice, perhaps without all the romantic intention that the younger child possesses, but with a sort of proud admiration, because she sees this girl so passionate and ready to prove herself at 10 years old, and she genuinely loves her. I also love the idea that Tamika defends Janice on the playground when the other kids start teasing her about the wheelchair, sling-shooting heavy books at their heads and yelling that if they mess with her one more time, they’ll find themselves bleeding from a hardback copy of Crime and Punishment. It’s just like this schoolyard crush that makes me so happy.
ARGH! You couldn’t make this easy could you? Oh, well. I guess my favorite episodes would have to be
- "One Year Later"
- "PTA Meeting"
- "Phone Call"
- "Old Oak Doors" Part B
I want to give a big kudos to everyone who cosplays in this fandom. You guys are amazing, without a doubt. Whether you’re Cecil, Carlos, Dana, the Glow Cloud, whatever! You all look fantastic!
Fan artists, I’m looking at you! Every single piece of work you guys do is some of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in my life. You’re all so talented, I don’t know how you do it!
And fan fiction writers, don’t even think I’m leaving you out. You guys extend the story to such exciting lengths, and give the fandom so much more! The elegant flow of language, the vivid imagery, the way you capture people’s emotions… Honestly, I could read your material all day (and I have).
Even the people who just reblog stuff. You’re so wonderful, you don’t even know! You help spread the word about this podcast, which in turn, could make someone check it out and become a fan. And by liking posts, you’re giving that artist, or writer, or cosplayer the confidence to keep doing what they love to do, which will create even more awesome material in the fandom and spread even more positivity. You’re all just so… well… neat!
Every single one of you are really, really awesome at what you do. Don’t ever think for a minute that your participation in the Night Vale fandom is pointless, because it obviously isn’t. I love you all, and wish you the best.
Of course. A month of tough decisions, and it all leads to this.
Okay, okay. Enough of my complaining.
I guess I’m going to have to go with the obvious answer.
Carlos the Scientist
I mean, he’s just such an adorable dork, and he makes Cecil really happy. Why wouldn’t you love him? Not to mention, he’s voiced by this cute puppy dog of a man.
Honestly, how much more perfect can you get?
so our class is reading romeo and juliet
and i stumble across this gem
did shakespeare really just make a dick joke
Um, I hate to break it to you, sweetheart, but all Shakespeare does is make dick jokes.
also vagina jokes
'Nothing' is Elizabethan slang for vagina
He actually wrote a play called Much Ado About Nothing
Translation: A Lot of Fuss About Vaginas
And let’s not forget how quick old Will was to call someone a whore.
In Hamlet, Hamlet tells Ophelia “Get thee to a nunnery.”
"Nunnery" is Elizabethan slang for a whorehouse.
