Hi.I've just finished reading the latest chapter of both the Musical AU and the HDM AU and they were fantastic. When I'll return home from Summer holiday, I think I'll try to record also "Defying Management" (Wicked is one of my favourite musicals).Have You ever thought of a NV/ Little Mermaid Au, where Cecil is a triton who falls in love with a certain human scientist and is forced to give up his Voice in order to obtain legs?

(a) Glad you like them!

(b) It’s an awesome song, and I would love to hear a recording of the parody.

(c) …Have I ever thought of a Little Mermaid AU? Well, there was that one time I wrote 21,000 words about oceanographer Carlos winning the attention of tentacled mer-creature Seacil. So, yes. Yes, I have thought of it =)

Song XXVIII - “Weaponry” (Tamika)

To the tune of “Weaponry" (lyrics) from Phineas and Ferb. From Night Vale: The Musical. (Full songbook.)

"Weaponry" (Tamika)

TAMIKA
Weaponry
It’s the way to get it done
Weaponry
It’s effective and it’s fun!
If you want them all to flee you, every boss and racketeer
Give their acquisitions up and slink away in fear
State your wishes in a language that they all can hear
With weaponry
Am I clear?

Put slingshots on your shopping list
Get guns and ammo in our midst
We’ll use our books as clubs if they persist
When there are no cops around
Shoot their helicopters down
Watch out, you’re aiming from the wrist

Just to beat ‘em up is not enough
And we can’t let them call our bluff
We’ve got to be prepared to play this rough
They’re causing fatalities
In our municipality
So we must, forthwith, threaten them with

Weaponry
We won’t stop until they leave
Weaponry
You can do it, just believe!
If we’re gonna banish our invaders somewhere far away
We have to make them see that we are not in this to play
And the fastest way to put our dedication on display
Is W-E-A-P-O-N-R-Y:
Weaponry!
Start today!

Just wanted to say I LOVE your WTNV HDM AU! I love thinking up bizarre daemons so can I draw your attention to: maned wolf, dhole, African wild dog, tanuki, fossa, irrawaddy dolphin, dumbo octopus, red-shanked langur, javan lutung, dusky leaf monkey, smooth-billed ani (like a t-rex-crow), potoo, ribbon-tailed astrapia, silver-beaked tanager, Hoatzin, Palawan peacock-pheasant, superb fruit dove, and the Nicobar or Southern/Western/Victoria crowned pigeon (your Jacobins made me think of it! ^_^)

[2/2] p.s. erm… that was… just in case you ~needed~ some animal-daemon-ideas ideas in future… *blush* oh dear - I just nerded out at you didn’t I? Sorry! >_<’

Not a problem! I’m always up for finding about about cool new animals =)

There’s actually a maned wolf daemon in-universe already — Carlos’s brother has one (full-size art). And a future character is scheduled to have an African wild dog, so look forward to that!

Those are some dashing primates in your list. Apparently the dusky leaf monkey’s genus mostly live in harems — now there’s a plot twist waiting to happen. Gorgeous birds, too, especially the ribbon-tailed astrapia. And hoatzins! They look like dinosaurs. It’s great.

(…And now I’ve spent half an hour checking out drawings of feathered dinosaurs on Wikipedia. Because hey, it’s Night Vale, there’s no reason someone couldn’t be walking around with an Alvarezsaurus.)

Will your awesome fic include Steve Carlsberg's epic talents at imitating people? And on a related note - when you write, do you imagine Carlos to sound like Dylan Marron? I can usually hear his voice when I read (especially when he's getting excited), but I think you started the first fic before Dylan was cast, so I wasn't sure whether you had your own voice for him that sounded different :)

The His Dark Materials crossover won’t. It’s such an actor-specific thing — like, clearly the impressions in Old Oak Doors were not there for reasons of plot or pacing, they were there for reasons of knowing Hal Lublin was going to perform in this scene and wanting to take full advantage. You can’t really translate that into fic.

(Also, HDM!Steve is really different from what we’ve learned since about canon!Steve, and I’m not even gonna try to reconcile them at this point.)

Steve’s imitations might come up in The Musical, given the whole theme of “Night Vale spontaneously develops elements of a stage production.” There’s probably a song about doing impressions somewhere….

And yeah, I started the HDM AU long before Condos was released, so I had a different Carlos in my head for a long while there ^_^; In that case, with the characterization, I’ve been kinda trying to weave Dylan!Carlos in on top of what was already written. Giving him more scenes where he gets really excited, or gets caught up in science talk and starts rambling, or reveals some weird hangup (“I study science, not plants”). So it’s less “random shift in voice mid-story” and more “But Carlos’s true capacity for totally nerding out had never been required…until now.” [dun dun dunnn]

OMG! Just writing to tell you that I'm relatively new to the Fake News Fandom (I started about a couple months ago), and I'm absolutely conflicted about your works. I read your Blue, Thinking about You Fic and your Eagle of Hermes comic and they were both so well-written and well done, and gave me tons of feels. How are you a master of words, master of the arts, and a master of my heartstrings? I'm flabbergasted how someone as amazing as yourself can exist. Please keep up the great work. :)

You are so kind, thank you! I definitely have more fake news fics in me, even with TCR winding down…and in the meantime, there’s a nice large back catalog for you to work though ^_^
