Excerpt:
Both of his moms drove with him to drop him off at the middle school. "Mo-o-o-o-o-o-o-om," he groaned, embarrassed, as they hugged and kissed him and told him to be careful before letting him out of the car.

Shouldering his tent and sleeping bag, Earl hurried over to the group of boys clustered around Scout Master Marshak. Tak Wallaby was already there, as well as Steve Carlsberg, the new boy who had moved to Night Vale from the East Coast only a few months before. As usual, Dougie Marshak, the Scout Master's son, wore a ridiculous homemade feathered headdress. Earl ignored him, but greeted a few of the others while he waited for his best friend to arrive.

They were loading their equipment into the Marshaks' van when a voice called, "Hey, Earl!"

Earl turned around, grinning, to see Cecil Palmer and his brother Kevin hurrying toward him. "Hey, Cecil." He rubbed his suddenly-sweaty palms on his pant legs. Soon, he would know.

Note: Sorry about this. I could hardly resist after hearing the latest episode, and then a friend goaded me into it.

Excerpt:
Carlos -- perfectly imperfect Carlos -- entered the bedroom a moment later, chest glistening with moisture, hips swathed in a towel. His beautiful hair fell in wet, black snakes over his forehead and ears, and almost to his shoulders. He grinned when he saw Cecil sitting on the bed.

"I thought I might be seeing you," he said, leaning down to greet his boyfriend with a damp kiss.

"Mmmm .... Were you listening to the show?" asked Cecil, tongue flicking out to taste Carlos's full lower lip.

"Always. You know I can't resist your 'radio voice'."
pica_scribit: (Grindelwald Won)
I don't know if any of you follow the Welcome to Night Vale podcast (if you enjoy absurdist/surreal dark comedy, you should), but this morning on the way to work, I listened to the one-year anniversary show for the first time, and ended up writing a spontaneous and very fluffy Cecil/Carlos ficlet.
