Hello I am Nessalyn the college student aka dearness and you shouldn't take anything I write from midnight to 3am too seriously
These are all so beautiful and functional.
ah yes, i see the bedroom fandom is growing.
I’m in a distance relationship with someone who lives in the US. We’re in an unusual situation, given that we’ve been together for eight years and never met in person. So I get that we’re the anomaly, and many people wouldn’t want to live like this. I don’t want to explain all the ins and outs. But.
I feel like the fandom has trouble understanding the ways Cecil and Carlos cope with the situation. I don’t think they’re breaking up at all. I don’t think they’re falling out of love.
Sometimes you can’t handle thinking about how apart you really are. You fall into fantasies, like Cecil does with the carnival. Then you catch yourself fantasizing and you get mad at yourself, because it hurts. It hurts to realize you cannot go to the carnival. (I fantasize about winning the lottery and just flying to him. I bought a lottery ticket this week, too. I know it’s stupid superstition.)
Sometimes you focus on other things, because you wouldn’t be able to handle it otherwise. Also, you don’t just think of each other 24/7 in any long-term relationship. You will have other interests. Carlos’ is science.
You can still do things together. Sometimes chats and phone conversations are a good thing. The focus on the verbal, the need to show pictures of your daily life, brings you closer together. It’s not all bad.
My boyfriend hasn’t been able to listen to Old Oak Doors or anything beyond that, because there are too many similarities to us. I find the similarities somehow soothing, as long as Cecilos stay together. If they end up breaking up or falling out of love, I will be very upset though.
My point: you can love when you’re apart. You can even be very happy. Maybe it’s harder if you’ve been physically together and shared a daily life and then lost it, but many couples live like that.
It’s not a perfect system, but it’s still love. It can be the best thing in your life, the thing that keeps you going.
Thank you so much for this post. I’m in a long distance relationship with someone in another country too (my girlfriend is British and we’ve been together three years) so support for ldrs is always welcome. I agree that, as long as Cecilos stays together, the ldr similarities are soothing.
However, a lot of fandom failing to understand how they can still love each other when apart is not so soothing. Like you said, long distance relationships are not all bad. They are certainly difficult but so are all relationships. As cheesy as this sounds, just because you are physically apart doesn’t mean your hearts are apart. You can still be very much in love.
Cecil and Carlos are still very much in love. They have conflicts sure but conflicts were present in their relationship while they were both still in Night Vale. They worked through them then so I’m sure they can work through them now. As Cecil once said, “that is a part of how love works. It is not a perfect system, but…oh, well”.
I am that British girlfriend, and I agree to all of this.
I like how all of these 11-17 year olds are just going to school with vampires and werewolves and giant spiders and vicious three-headed dogs in their backyard, yet they need a permission slip with an iron-clad parent/guardian signature to go have a harmless butterbeer at the nearby wizarding village.
Okay, Hogwarts. Okay.
It’s 2014 so that means that a lot of the kids born in 2000 are just starting their weaboo phase.
Tbh I think I interact better with people who have at least some degree of extraversion in them otherwise it’s like
Please talk first
alternatives to “it was all just a dream”
- it was all just a story the narrator heard somebody else tell on the bus
- it was all just somebody rambling after getting their wisdom teeth out
- it was all just a feature length puppet show
- it was all just a set of cave paintings
- it was all just a frighteningly elaborate set of instructions on the back of a microwaveable meal

OK JUST LOOK AT THE QUALITY GUYS IT’S SO FUCKING REALISTIC JESUS
MitchieM’s tuning of Miku’s voice is always so phenomenal that I’m just forced to assume that Miku literally comes to life and sings for real.
This model is gorgeous too.
this fucking mentality that you can’t be best friends with your significant other, that romance ruins a friendship, that BOTH FRIENDSHIP AND ROMANCE CANNOT OCCUR SIMULTANEOUSLY kills me like
that’s such a horrible, horrible and unhealthy mentality to have
