There was an interview with Joseph and Cecil and they were asked what they were doing after NV. They answered simultaneously "death" (its out there somewhere I don't remember the source) So from what I gather they are not looking at ending this any time soon. Yes the strex arc has ended (for now) but the amount of other characters set up and other developments suggest also that they are in for the long haul. Hurrah!

Thanks for your input! I completely agree, I didn’t mean to imply that I thought WTNV would be ending anytime soon. Considering the ever-growing popularity of the show, it’ll almost certainly be going on to bigger and better things. Perhaps they will even make a blood pact with TNT or HBO to create a miniseries? We can only hope!

so, i thought to myself “why not draw all the interns” and then realized there was a lot of interns and i had made a horrible mistake

Hi so dumb question but, where do you think they'll go in year three? I really hope that they find out the true nature of the town and Cecil, as well as the dark planet. (Also it hope Carlos comes back) what do you think they'll do:? (Love your blog btw :3)

I’ve been wondering that myself, but I’m really not sure, and of course none of us are privy to any behind-the-scenes information, so I really can’t make any kind of decent guess.

All the same, I’d wager that they’re going to either bring in StrexCorp again, or make some kind of new villain. They’ll need a new story arc now that the Strex one is winding down. Like you said, they also need to bring back Carlos (which I’m sure they will— the fans would riot otherwise). Maybe Hiram McDaniels and the Faceless Old Woman will join forces to try to take down Dana. Perhaps the dog park will begin to engulf the town. I really don’t know! But I am excited for another year of an amazing podcast!

What do you think, listeners?

Maybe I shouldn't be asking this after I've already bought tickets to the show in San Diego but I'm really only a fan of Night Vale. Nothing against Thrilling Adventure Hour, I just haven't had time. I'm going to give it a listen but I won't be able to hear all of them before SDCC. So anyone who saw their last crossover show can you still enjoy it without knowing much about Thrilling Adventure Hour? And anyone who's a fan of Thrilling Adventure Hour any recommendations where to start listening?

I don’t personally listen to it— I’ve been meaning to, but I’ve just never had time.

Followers who listen to TAH, would you mind giving this anon some advice as to where to start? I’d love to know myself, as well, there’s a considerable number of episodes that are out already and it’s a little intimidating!

If you’re new to Thrilling Adventure Hour, please check out the New Listener FAQ over at the TAH wiki.  The main fandom blog is fyeahthrillingadventurehour so if WTNV people have any questions, please check out these resources or just ask in the Thrilling Advenutre Hour tag, we’re pretty friendly! :)

If you’re going to the SDCC crossover, you should listen to the Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars episodes of TAH.  I’d cram in as many as possible in the next week, following the Sparks Nevada Universe Continuity page on the TAH wiki to make sure you hit all the Sparks universe episodes, as there’s some other segments that also take place in the Sparks universe that have different names.

The Christmas episodes have Sparks Nevada stuff in them, but also full episodes of some of the other segments.

Sparks Nevada has a ton of continuity in it so it may be difficult to just jump into the middle, but I was at the ECCC show and they do a pretty good job giving WTNV-only people an idea of what’s going on.

If you have really limited time and just want to catch up on a few episodes, some that could help would be:

Just realize that you’re being dropped into a new storyline here, but those episodes feature a recent storyline that factored somewhat into the crossover as written at ECCC.

Also check out Emperor of Mars (TAH #166) VARIANT B for an episode which guest stars Cecil Baldwin. :)

The basics of what you need to know is that Sparks Nevada is the Marshal on Mars approximately 1000 years from now.  He has a faithful Martian companion, Croach the Tracker, who is under onus to him for saving his tribe from a flood and since then saving his life a few times and many other debts.  Martians take their onuses very seriously.  Pemily Stallwark is from the Earth’s Moon and is a the lone survivor of her year of Punishment Soccer, which left her with severe PTSD but she’s been trying to better herself recently.  The population of the Earth’s moon rebelled 76 years ago and since then the Earth’s government has held them in a vice-like grip. (The whole Pemily/Moon thing started as a Hunger Games parody but has grown into it’s own thing since then.)

The Red Plains Rider is a human woman who was raised by Martians and is an independent vigilante on Mars who has history with both Sparks and Croach.  (She isn’t going to be in the crossover, but she’s in one of the episodes above.)

I think the more minor characters are going to change from the ECCC show based on the casting, so I don’t know which minor characters are going to be in it. :(

I help out with both the wiki and fytah, so I’m also happy to answer any questions anyone has whenever. :)  Hope this helps!

For those of you asking about Thrilling Adventure Hour, here’s a brief overview of it! Shoutout to annakie for sending us all this info. I have been told that shannondapper and ahab99 are good people to ask as well. Go forth and listen!

THANK YOU, NIGHT VALE: A SCRAP BOOK PROJECT.

realhousewifeofnightvale:

I want to do something for everyone involved with Night Vale. (I would donate so much money if I had any, but alas). They have entertained me while I do dishes, inspired so much art I’ve enjoyed and art I’ve done, offered a lot of positive representation I can’t find anywhere else, helped me calm down from anxiety attacks and pick myself up out of depressive states - and even catch myself before I fall into an attack, and oh so much more.

I know I’m not the only person who feels this way.

So. I’m going to make a scrap book. Better yet - we are going to make a scrap book. (I’ll do the heavy lifting for you, but only because I love you.)

I’m going to fill our book with the URLs (or names - if you want your name in it message me) of everyone who reblogs this. If you want to include a personal message, whether it be a heartfelt note or a weird ass poem, send it to me in my ask box. When the book is full, I’m going to send it

I’m hoping this book will be as weird and wonderful as the show itself, so if you have any ideas, please let me know!

I don’t know when my cut off date is going to be. I’ll just see whether this actually picks up any momentum! If you want to see updates on this, I’ll be tagging it #night vale scraps. Please signal boost this - I really want them to see just how much they do for so many people.

ONE MORE THING. I’d like this to be a surprise. If the majority of you disagree and think letting the Night Vale creators know ahead of time for suspense (you rascals), then by all means do so. However, I personally dig gifts out of the blue, so that’s the direction I was planning to go (unless you disagree, of course!)

EDIT: *Concerning including photos or art*Ink is expensive. I expect to do this out of pocket, and as I mentioned earlier, I don’t have a lot of money. However, what is a scrap book without photos, right? I’ll cut a deal with you. STARTING NEXT MONDAY, THE FIRST 30 PEOPLE TO INBOX ME WILL BE ABLE TO SUBMIT A PHOTO TO ME, VIA E-MAIL, THAT WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE BOOK IN BLACK AND WHITE. (because color ink cartridges are too expensive for me. I am broke.) Again, depending on how much momentum this post gets, I’ll consider doing another photo round up sort of thing.
