It’s up! It’s up! Almost exactly three months since starting this project, the first chapter of my newest fanfic has been posted on AO3! So many, many thanks to Dangersocks for her constant support and inspiration, as well as the brilliant Oxytrezart, whose art is the only reason this series exists in the first place.
TITLE: A Taste of Something (1/6)
SERIES: Welcome to Night Vale
CHAPTER WORD COUNT: ~15,200
PARING: Carlos/Cecil (with Cecil/Earl and Earl/Carlos undertones)
GENRE: Drama/Humor/Action/Romance/Victorian Monster Hunters AU
SUMMARY: “Did you know, my Lord,” the Scout persists, “that Alice’s Wonderland was not penned to represent some alternative fantasy realm? Rather, it is what a certain, close-minded Reverend assumed our world would devolve into should educated men—such as yourself— accept a reality of unreal mathematical concepts. But here, good Sir, is the rub: those abstract formulas have since become verified facts, and life as we know it has not gone topsy-turvy. Do you know what this means?” Earl prompts his teatime companion, willowed fingers flurrying like rosemary in a breeze.
And yes. Said companion does. In the wake of candied corpses and circadian whispers, gristly murders and glimpsed monsters, a stack of mysterious calling cards and a Marquis with eyes like opals, Carlos knows exactly what this means.
“It means we have been in Wonderland all along, and I’ve been none the wiser.”
[Part of the Resurrection Lily series; sequel to “Butterfly Weed”]
yO YOU ALL SHOULD READ THIS FUCKING RAD SHIT ASAP CAUSE HOLY SHIT
I just finished the beta for chapter three. And having read it before, and still reading it again…HOW THE FUCK DOES ANYONE DO THIS?! It is amazing. It is simply astounding. There are subtexts and imagery and danger and all of the characters are so deep and fucking amazing.
Be glad that I am in the snow wastes of Canada because I am a black belt and I seriously just want to physically manhandle every one of you into reading this.
Chapter three is almost here, and it is so glorious and sexy and intense. (Honestly, the entire beta is just bold text of me flailing and screaming in caps at Moony.)
If you aren’t reading this story, you are sad and empty inside. I cannot promise that you will not be feeling feelings by the end. It is a void that takes your soul. Go. Go now. Go feed it!
