( spoilers for Fashion Week )
I haven't been keeping up with fic in this fandom; anyone have recs, particularly of stories in script format or otherwise extremely canon-typical in tone?

So I have come home from the latest live Welcome to Night Vale show, taken some Tylenol, given it time to kick in before I stuck my hands in hot water because it's my night to do the dishes, and done the dishes, which means it's time to briefly write up the show so I can go to sleep.
As the above may have suggested, I had a terrible headache through a good deal of the show. Note to self: you are 5' 3", literal front row seats before a raised stage are not a good idea. Between the neck strain, and some confluence of the speakers and the bass output of the opening musical act that had me feeling like a glass of water in a Jurassic Park movie, well, not so good.
Also, have an extremely vague description of part of the show, so vague that I doubt anyone who hasn't seen it will know what I mean: ( so, so vague )
But the guests were delightful and clearly having a ton of fun. If the guest list counts as a spoiler to you, avert your eyes ( now: )

Summary: We are all, in our own way, Joseph Fink.
This multi-voice podfic takes Joseph Fink's (and "Joseph Fink"'s) intros and runs with them; it is amazing and if you like Night Vale you will like it—even if you don't like the intros, because it makes them entirely Night Vale-ian instead of only occasionally so. The scripting and editing is impeccable, I laughed out loud at least twice, and basically it's just super-cool.
Several months ago, I dumped a bunch of songs into a shuffle playlist and called it "Transformative Weather": things that reminded me of Welcome to Night Vale in some way, things I'd just been listening to then, a couple Dylan covers that I really like and that had come up on shuffle again recently, and some other things that just seemed to fit.
I later refined it into an actual listen-in-this-order playlist, and in celebration of catching up on my episode reactions, I've put it on YouTube, because that is a thing one can do these days. As usual, I have only watched snippets of most of the videos, though I have optimized the start and end times for music-in-background as opposed to video-watching purposes. If you like the songs, support the artists, please.
(The last song is (a) the one I would pick in a heartbeat if the Night Vale folks showed up on my doorstep and asked me to introduce the weather; and (b) so obscure that last time I looked I couldn't find it on YouTube, only live covers that lacked the instrumentation that gives it the full feel. So yay it being up now.)
This is where I started skipping the weather, though I'd already stopped commenting on it. I also only got halfway through 35 and did the rest through transcripts.
Now to read transcripts, listen to the most recent episode, shower, eat, and go to my 1:00 panel, full of so many things to say.
