It comes up around the point when Steve gets pissed enough to physically throw Kevin out of Night Vale. Not long after Kevin suggest that Strex can fix Janice’s ‘disability’, though we are never told what THAT might be, either. SO MANY MYSTERIES.

Huh yeah I went back and checked. He does say step brother, and not sure who else he’d be referring to other than Cecil. Given the mortality rate in Night Vale I guess a lot of people have step-siblings after one parent dies and the other remarries.

They say Janice hasn’t been able to walk since birth and I think they said something about Janice needing wheelchair ramps in an earlier episode. But I don’t think they say why.

I’m gonna assume she has, like, squid legs or something.

Um

What?

I don’t think I have anything one could call a childhood secret.

But what?

So I was a few episodes behind on Night Vale and I just got caught back up and a sudden surge of people reblogging my Josie drawing reminded me of a thought/question.

Okay, so we know Cecil has a niece named Janice, a sister, and Steve Carlsberg is his brother in law.

But in the Cassette episode…

Headcannon: Cecil’s sister is actually a transgender woman. That would explain why in the casette episode he said he had a brother and now he says that he has a sister.

I’m so for this theory. OMG

And he forgot that he ever had a “brother” in the first place? It’s kind of perfectly in line with his character.

ON THAT NOTE IM SORRY I AM A PIECE OF GARBAGE WHO CANT READ A CALENDAR.
Sin Pararse 160 is up.

Sin Pararse 160 is up.

And that still doesn’t explain why Steve refers to Cecil as his Step-Brother.

I don’t remember him saying that. I might have to re listen.

As a general rule if I EVER don’t post a page on an update day and I didn’t say something about it ahead of time.

It’s because I’m an idiot with a horrible sense of time and I literally just forgot it was time to post something. The sooner someone reminds me the sooner I’ll remember to do it.

Is there no SP today? Did I miss an announcement? Anonymous

MOTHER OF FUCK

I forgot it was friday goddamn.

Since cecil was still young when his mom and brother disappeared, maybe he was adopted. Or he was taken in by extended family and they just refer to cecil as Janice's uncle instead of second cousin or something. level-headedscout

Maybe, but that’s so ordinary though.

Okay, so we know Cecil has a niece named Janice, a sister, and Steve Carlsberg is his brother in law.

But in the Cassette episode it’s sort of implied that the only family he had at the time was his mother and the brother he doesn’t remember having. There’s no mention of any other siblings or a father or anyone else.

So where did the sister come from?

I guess it’s possible she’s enough older than him that she didn’t live at home anymore but it’s Night Vale so I think there’s something weirder going on.

I figured Janice was Cecil’s brother’s kid. Depending on when Cecil’s brother and Janice’s mom were together (and when whatever happened to Janice’s mom to take her out of the picture happened), it could shake out that Steve Carlsberg raised a kid that wasn’t actually his. But he loves her, and that’s what matters.

Of course, this is Night Vale, so it could be something a whole lot weirder going on.

(did Cecil say that Janice’s mom was his sister? The wiki just says she’s Steve’s stepdaughter and Cecil’s niece, so I guess it’s ambiguous)

But he specifically doesn’t remember having a brother, so he doesn’t have a bother now? 

I could swear they said Janice’s mom was his sister but maybe I just assumed. He definitely mentions her having a mom.

I think the question would still stand regardless of the sibling’s gender. Cassette implies his only family was the mom and the brother, who he doesn’t remember, and also appears to have been erased from existence  by the weird static/whatever thing.

So who is Janice’s parent? Where did they come from?

Does Cecil have an entirely separate family now than he did when he recorded those tapes? And they still haven’t resolved who or what the “Cecil Palmer” that was auctioned off in The Auction was.

I once made a spur of the moment decision to go to Otakon (the first time I went actually) because I heard you were going to be there.

Oh wow.

I hope you did it on a year I was actually there.
