“There are glowing arrows in the sky. You can’t see them. I do." -Steve Carlsberg, The September Monologues
God DAMN, talk about some heart-breaking character revelations this episode. EVERYTHING I HAVE IS CREYS.
Ya’ll keep talking about Steve, understandably, but CECIL. The way Steve talked about him made him seem like such a dork but not in a good way. Also like he’s kind of a loser. It made him seem like he was just super lonely and spent all of his time at work. And said weird shit like “Welcome to the Wedding” but not in a cute way like in a legit weird way. Like all he was ever was a radio host. And Cecil was so monotone at the beginning. It’s like he was just a puppet for the strange forces that control Night Vale. Like Cecil was only there to help in the brainwashing of Night Vale. And I hate that. But that was before. Before Carlos, basically. I saw a post that said that Carlos was Cecil’s humanity and that’s what it seems like. After Carlos is when Cecil started sounding so alive and had more of a personality and cared more. And Cecil has even addressed talking around things before and stopped doing that and talked frankly, in Renovations. Cecil is growing. And maybe part of the reason Cecil is so obsessed with Carlos and bringing him back is because he doesn’t want to go back to what he was before. And we saw him sort of go back too, in Capital Campaign with the monotone voice. Maybe Carlos not coming back for a while will be a good thing though. Maybe Cecil can see that he can be human on his own.
Side note however, I’m really glad we got another view of Cecil. I mean, we have a general knowing of his character by now, but it was refreshing to see him in another, more darker manner. Don’t get me wrong, I love Cecil, but seeing more of his faults makes him all the more rounded.
Man, poor Steve. His love for Janice hit me right in the feels~
I don’t hate him the way he hates me. How could I? I understand him. He hates me because he doesn’t understand me at all. He cannot see the dotted lines! He cannot see the arrows

The Beach Boys greatest hits…
…as recounted by a citizen of Night Vale:
"The People Under the Floor"
“I’m Being Followed”
“Tracking Device Inside My Skin”
“Hand Me That Hammer, Madame Dentist”
Moments like this are why I recommend WtNV to Lemony Snicket fans.

World’s languages traced back to single African mother tongue: scientists.
New Zealand researchers have traced every human language — from English to Mandarin — back to an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
Scientists say they have traced the world’s 6,000 modern languages — from English to Mandarin — back to a single “mother tongue,” an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
New research, published in the journal Science, suggests this single ancient language resulted in human civilization — a Diaspora — as well as advances in art and hunting tool technology, and laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures.
The research, by Quentin Atkinson from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, also found that speech evolved far earlier than previously thought. And the findings implied, though did not prove, that modern language originated only once, an issue of controversy among linguists, according to the New York Times.
Before Atkinson came up with the evidence for a single African origin of language, some scientists had argued that language evolved independently in different parts of the world.
Atkinson found that the first populations migrating from Africa laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures by taking their single language with them. “It was the catalyst that spurred the human expansion that we all are a product of,” Atkinson said, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Atkinson traced the number distinct sounds, or phonemes — consonants, vowels and tones — in 504 world languages, finding compelling evidence that they can be traced back to a long-forgotten dialect spoken by our Stone Age ancestors, according to the Daily Mail.
Atkinson also hypothesized that languages with the most sounds would be the oldest, while those spoken by smaller breakaway groups would utilize fewer sounds as variation and complexity diminished.
The study found that some of the click-using languages of Africa have more than 100 phonemes, or sounds, whereas Hawaiian, toward the far end of the human migration route out of Africa, has only 13, the Times reported. English has about 45 phonemes.
The phoneme pattern mirrors the pattern of human genetic diversity as humans spread across the globe from sub-Saharan Africa around 70,000 years ago.
This gives me LIFE from people who insist all languages (ALL no matter what) derive from latin bases.
Anybody who thinks all languages derive from Latin knows fuck-all about language. Jesus Christ, only a few EUROPEAN languages derive from Latin. Here you go, children, a free piece of advice: feel free to disregard entirely anything anyone says about language if they think Latin is a source or “parent” for any language other than French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, or Romanian. It’s not even a source for English, except for a solid number of borrowed words — but English borrows words from EVERY LANGUAGE IT ENCOUNTERS, so that’s not saying much.
