Original/Fandom: Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale (Feels Like a lie when I hold you)
Content Warnings: unhealthy relationships
Summary: This is a poem Carlos writes during Poetry Week in Year 4


I really don't deserve him
But the Erikas aren't lying:
If he didn't love me,
The one who sustains this town,
I wouldn't still be here
Four Years Later

Last year was a mistake
A Time Sink
A Misjudgment
But it was also
A Weird-Time-Real-Life-Equivalent
Of the Ages Old Ethics problem

Do you:
(A) Kill everyone else, and save the one you care about?
(B) Or do you kill the one you care about to save everyone else?
(C) Or do you abandon the villain and kill him to save everyone else?

I feel like in Night Vale proper, there would probably be
a fourth, fifth, and sixth option for this problem
Possibly involving some sort of weird-science miracle
But I didn't get those choices
because I was, but wasn't, in Night Vale at the time.

I chose option 3, even though
I still don't know
If it was
The best choice.

But, I know he loves me
In spite of everything.
He chose me and after a long year,
I finally admitted again to choosing him
Over science and fascination
and wanting to help everyone.
This is my home
Weird as it is
Because it's where he is.

Original/Fandom: Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Content Warnings: unhealthy relationships (borderlining dubcon in one, borderlining neglect in the other), martyr complex/drive-to-fix, compassion fatigue
Summary: Carlos might be back in Night Vale, but he’s not sure if he’s made the right choice: is it really mending when you replace one broken relationship with another?
Notes: This is Carlos-introspective angst headcanon set after the most recent anniversary episodes of Welcome to Night Vale (70A Taking Off and 70B Review). This is this session's freebie.

Last trimester I took a Painting as a Wellness Tool class at the day program I go to.

A lot of my work was either deliberate Night Vale Fanart or Night Vale inspired in retrospect. :) Cellphone snaps of the Night Vale Art are below. The bottom set are poorer quality than the top set. They're still on display at school, so when I bring them home from the gallery later this trimester, I'll probably take a better photo.

Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

This was really hard to pick just 3 self-recs because I tend to write serials. But if I didn't limit it, I'd probably rec half my AO3 account, which you can find in the sidebar.

Characters: Hayate (Prétear), Awayuki Mawata, Awayuki Himeno, Sasame (Prétear)
Summary: Hayate listens to Sasame's radio show with Mawata after sending in another postcard.

This is really old but I think it's one of the ones that epitomizes my fondness for getting emotions across in writing.

Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings, No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Carlos/Cecil Palmer
Characters: Carlos (Welcome to Night Vale), Cecil Palmer, The Sheriff's Secret Police, Doug (Welcome to Nightvale), The Masked Army (Welcome to Night Vale)
Additional Tags: Inspired by Music, Folk Music, Dancing, Folk Dancing, Home Videos, Love, Carlos is probably Puerto Rican in this Fic, Post-Episode: e051 Rumbling, might be canon-compliant, might not be canon compliant
Summary: Sometimes Cecil finds drinking to forget doesn't work, instead it does the exact OPPOSITE and he remembers. And on one of those days, Carlos manages to use his heritage to express the way he feels so close and yet so far from home.

One of my Carlos headcanons let me show you it (I have 2 different Carlos headcanon tracks and I've posted one fic for each track, but I like this fic better as a standalone than the other).

This is honestly one of my favorites from the past year, even though I quoted the song lyrics a bit off from the actual song.

An Addendum to Intern Maureen's Living Will (345 words) by dreamwriteremmy
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Carlos/Cecil Palmer
Characters: Intern Maureen (Welcome to Night Vale), Cecil Palmer, Carlos (Welcome to Night Vale), Dana Cardinal, Erika (Welcome to Night Vale), John Peters, Steve Carlsberg, Carlos' Team of Scientists (Welcome to Night Vale), The Sheriff's Secret Police
Additional Tags: fan speculation, Missing Scene, Letters, unsent letter, Epistolary, Post-Episode: e054: A Carnival Comes To Town
Series: Part 1 of Taking fate into her hands
Summary: [post-episode 54] Maureen writes an unsent letter to Cecil documenting her next self-imposed intern duty after storming off.

This is the first chronological part of a Welcome to Night Vale post-episode 54 AU written in very broken time segments in which Maureen decides to play unlikely hero.

Canon has kind-of jossed it due to (a) timing conflicts and (b) heavy implications of other alternatives to dealing with the long distance relationship in recent episodes, but I like this sandbox I created too much to stop playing in it. We can always say this is an alternate Night Vale timeloop or something ;)
