good lord it’s literally too early for this
Some of the best Frozen artwork i’ve come across so far.
because op is
shittylazy, SOURCES OF THE ABOVE WORKS in the left-to-right order they are presented:
I don’t know who instigated it, I mean Joseph wrote that pilot episode and he had the mention of Carlos. As it began in the pilot he was just an unformed character that was played off that idea of a stranger in a strange town, a normal guy in a strange town exploring the scientific oddities of Night Vale. We didn’t really have much, other than the sheer kind of the adoration you have for a beautiful stranger in a stranger land and the way people stare at him.
We didn’t think of it as romantic right away. And as we went on with it the more and more we started describing Carlos and thinking about what his personality was, Joseph and I just sort of got to liking the character and enjoying the character and we couldn’t see why the character of Cecil wouldn’t love him as well for the same reasons that we did. [source]
and here (more direct)
Cecil Baldwin didn’t expect that his fictional counterpart would fall in love with Carlos. He didn’t expect to voice a fictional version of himself at all.
[…..] Baldwin, who records the podcasts just a few in advance, didn’t see the Cecil/Carlos chemistry straight away. He thought that “because of the weirdness of Night Vale,” Carlos was just the perfect human being, like a “male model who threw on a pair of glasses and a lab coat.” Of course everybody loved him. “But then when the relationship between the two characters started to develop, I was so happy and so pleased,” he said. [source]
There was a third one that I cannot for the life of me find that was much more direct- I’ll link it once I see it.
There’s also this quote from the pilot episode itself?
"That new scientist- we now know it’s named Carlos- called a town meeting. He has a square jaw, and teeth like a military cemetery. His hair is perfect, and we all hate, and despair, and love that perfect hair in equal measure.”

The only reason that an obscure podcast on iTunes, Welcome to Nightvale gained any popularity is because it has gay characters, and Tumblr, being the gay-fetishizing machine that it is, jumped right on it, despite the poor writing, sleep-inducing narration and overall poor quality of the podcast series. Just because it has characters who like it up the ass.
This is a troll blog and every single one of its posts is absolute nonsense that’s almost definitely anti-SJ “satire”.
Carlos was originally written as someone the entire town was attracted to, shut the heck up about “gay fetishization” the only fetish issue this fandom has is the side that reduces brilliantly written symbolism into gory torture porn. Of course we’re going to appreciate a podcast for its inclusion of marginalized groups because it is so rare for media to show awareness outside of “WHITE CISHET LOVE” and good lord that’s a beautiful thing
and tbh maybe this is a personal opinion but if you think Night Vale is boring maybe you just aren’t listening closely enough that stuff is loaded with honest representations of (generally white) imperialistic culture and watching Cecil deal with Lyme disease and romantic fears and his awful bosses- that’s shit WE have to deal with and it’s just so important to have that recognized, that not every person is able-bodied and secure
so what if he’s queer that’s the whole point- it doesn’t matter. That’s normal. What’s not normal is that shape in the park and hey have you seen those lights wow that’s weird. Night Vale is where regular humans can be such and not be freaking ostracized for it and in a world where you can literally be denied rights and killed for your identity I think it’s pretty damn important
Originally it was supposed to be a scary monster!Dean for Anna because she likes horror and creepy stuff. But I guess in the end I got carried away and it resembles some kind of a fantasy creature. I kinda like it?? :)
Belated Happy Birthday, Anna! <3 (psst the blood on his mouth is due to an aggressive make out session with Cas obviously)
waiting for hannibal season two to start like:
