Listeners, this just in: Dean Winchester, you know, the mechanic who works in the car lot near Old Woman Josie’s house? Well, he says that the angels (which we all know don’t exist) revealed themselves to him last night; said one of them had blue eyes, wore a dirty trench coat and helped him replace the tire on a ‘67 Chevy Impala. Apparently, other angels were there too, but they were (and I’m quoting here) “dicks.”
Night vale/SPN crossover! I’ve been wanting to do this since I listened to the first episode.
idk man it just makes me so so so sad when you’re watching a cutiepie talk about their passion like when they light up and start bubbling over with words and then all of a sudden they stop themselves and say stuff like “sorry, i know this is boring” or “sorry i just got excited”
like you know somewhere in their life someone they respected told them “shut up nobody cares” and ever since they can’t talk about their favorite things without apologizing every 5 seconds
no but you’ve just bought a used car
it’s not nice, exactly, and you can tell it’s been rebuilt a few times, and it’s felt every single one of its several hundred thousand miles
but there aren’t that many ‘67 Impalas around anymore and it’s not your main car, it’s just a fun little project
except no matter what radio station you switch to, it always slides back to the classic rock station
and something is rattling in the heat vents even though you’re pretty sure you got all the legos out
and one summer day you’re working on fixing a little dent in the front bumper when you look in the driver’s seat and your heart stops cold because someone is sitting there
"Dude," he says, running his hands over the wheel, "if you’re not gonna drive her, why buy her?"
and then he disappears
you convince yourself you imagined it
but you find yourself driving the car around on sunny days more often, with the music up because it feels right
and on a long stretch of open highway, between songs in the static on the radio, you think you can hear the same voice saying “now that’s more like it”
