so…The September Monologs…no weather today…
are you online can we talk about this?
I’m on mobile so kinda?
im noticing everyone talking about steve (and yes steve does deserve that…
and she keeps on talking about chad doing things out of character
is chad possessed?
also, is chad the same chad the intern that went to the Sporting Goods Store that was a front for the World Government and has been gone for years now
because she’s googling him and there is nothing
is chad a superspy
or is chad possessed
but if chad’s possessed it has to be the smiling god
is the smiling god living in chad’s home?
but the faceless old woman no longer lives in chad’s home and that’s kinda terrifying
That’s extremely terrifying. She left someone’s house.
But what if all the stuff up until The Faceless Old Woman starts talking about the red fabric and the candles and such, what all that before hand was BEFORE Chad, and when she says she did not understand, that’s the present. So it could be like a time laps thing.
Or or orrrrr could it be his double? Could the smiling god or even the government have created Chad’s double/”evil” clone, and The Faceless Old Woman knows he’s not really him because he DISAPPEARED A LONG TIME AGO?!
But also the fact that there was no weather REALLY threw me off. I enjoyed this episode, don’t get me wrong we learned SO MUCH ABOUT EVERYTHING, but it felt a little…off…even for Night Vale
The lack of weather sorta fit for me.
I’ve never liked it when Cecil is unable to introduce the weather (for whatever reason). Kevin is tolerable, Lauren is not allowed, and I would’ve been okay with Steve.
This is the episode where Cecil’s barely been there and everything in this episode is jarring. Cecil’s staticky, he’s not having any sort of existential crisis, the City Council and/or the Mayor aren’t doing anything, we have narrators who aren’t radio professionals or calling in. There’s no proverb. The Faceless Old Woman is scared… followed by a mostly comedic monologue… followed by Steve (with Cecil imitations that made me wince, but his imitations often make me wince… in a goodish way?). So the lack of weather kinda goes with that.
But yes we learned so much and my mind’s in 1000 different places.
It was funny, because Steve interrupts the weather by saying,
"No, definitely the weather! I remember it was the weather because we had to stand there in awkward silence for a bit and waited for the music to stop playing."
I thought that was clever. We learned that the weather isn’t just a NVCR thing, it happens all the time, music will just start playing once a day. No matter what’s going on or who’s doing what.
I’ve always pictured Cecil being in “control” of the weather (like it only come on when he or anyone at the radio station says so). But he’s not at the weather is just one more everyday activity in Night Vale.
And another thing, Steve looks at Night Vale differently. But so does Carlos. They look at Night Vale in similar ways, as in “Night Vale is not like other towns.” They both have different thoughts and ideas outside of the government (or the secret police) will allow. Cecil adores Carlos for is ideas. Yet he despises Steve for the same reason.
I don’t think that this episode means that the weather is beyond Cecil’s control. We see him choose to postpone the weather in Sandstorm A, so it’s not just a spontaneous thing. He could have been trying to make small talk about the weather… and then they just had to stand there awkwardly for a few minutes.
They’re not the same ideas, although they do both stem from “Night Vale is weird.” It’s what they do with that idea that makes Cecil like or hate them. Carlos’ science, is mostly legal in Night Vale (except astronomy, which Carlos doesn’t do much with anyway). Carlos can and has saved lives with science. It’s okay. Steve wants to teach people to stop following the laws (and unspoken ones such as recognizing the agency the agents come from) which is absolutely not okay because then everyone will just be re-educated over and over and then what’s the point?
Ya know, I just had the thought, Cecil is ignorant. He knows more that he should/want to, he is aware of the true horrors of Night Vale, but just pretends it’s not there. He follows the rules and he stays in line (excluding StrexCorp). Maybe it’s because that’s just how Nigh Vale works. Or maybe because that’s how they are raised. Follow the law, stay in line, don’t think too much, learn what is said to you and and so on and so on. But then you get Steve who wants to educate everyone. Steve wants to teach Night Vale about the universe outside of the helicopters and void. Even though residents of Night Vale don’t want to know what’s outside the endless sky and deserts, Steve wants to tell them about it, for better or for worse.
