Or, lady!Cecil likes octopi, which Carla thinks is a bit odd since she knows Cecily has never been to the ocean but eh, whatever.
NAIL POLISH IS IMPORTANT
Fuck it, I WANT Tamika Flynn to be white
(By “want” I mean that while race/nationality had been parts of my night vale headcanons for many characters, It was never all that important, never mattered like it does with her; although of course I will still not sink to the level of people bashing other people’s headcanons because lol, who does that)
Reason? The same fucking reason as with ya all. Representation. White teenage girl had been butts of loads and loads of jokes, ESPECIALLY on the ever-so-accepting tumblr. Past time a badass appeared to set people’s minds aright.
EDIT: before you tell me “there is shitton of white girls in media who are adass as fuck” please read this post http://berelyn.tumblr.com/post/68869178328
Do you really think that white girls need more representation than black girls? I can see Katniss, who was racially ambiguous in The Hunger Games books, but is white in the movies; I can see Hermione; I can see Tris; I can see them everywhere in media.
Tamika is a person of color. There is no reason for her to be white.

I like thinking Cecil and Kevin wear ugly Christmas sweaters around the holidays. Family tradition and all that jazz.
new Cecil headcanon
mainly that Cecil was born in Night vale, but he has a strong haitian/maroon ancestry (which he’s very proud of) and that he usually has a lot of bruises and cuts on his arms (he doesn’t feel pain though so he usually doesn’t figure out that they’re there until a long time later) so he usually wears long sleeve shirts- although for some reason he chooses not to think about most of these bruises or cuts heals completely in a day or so, so it’s usually not a big deal.
And he’s also gender-fluid and although he usually prefers male pronouns, but during certain weeks she’ll prefer female or neutral pronouns ((and during these weeks they’ll avoid Steve Carlsburg because Steve never gets the pronouns right
but Dana does, which is why he loves her so much)). Kevin, on the other hand, favors neutral pronouns
But he also looks pretty human- like, he is literally the average height for people in the area (although he can never get an exact number because his height always seems different every time he tries to measure himself- which makes getting fitted for anything pretty annoying) and he’s the average weight for people in the area as well- but honestly he just sort of guesses at it because scales always seem to disappear around him (literally; he had figured out that his last one had turned invisible after stubbing his toe on it a few times).
I’m a big fan of this whole tentacles-in-everything-they-eat thing the Night Vale fandom has adopted.
So I’m a Cecilos gal, but because I have the most boring job on earth I ended up making up an Earl headcanon anyway! So I believe that it didn’t work out because Earl fell in love with the idea of Cecil as opposed to Cecil the person. Maybe he was a pretty shy kid who came from a really straight-laced and strict family, befriended Cecil, and was overwhelmed by his outgoing personality, open nature, and um, original dress sense.
By the way, after the anon hate I got for uploading a single doodle of Harlan as a Korean kid, I’m bracing myself for more. I could not give two shits about this character, but I refuse to whitewash because of some racist fucks in this fandom. I mean really.

Yes, Carlos. Come hither.
An experimental sketch featuring my predominant Cecil headcanon, because I had to get him on paper at some point. Expect more of him, actually, because expressions! And freckles! And tinted glasses!
