Probably the Weirdest Fandom I’ve Encountered (which is saying a lot) | Night Vale Random Fandom

Hi howdy hello everyone! Long time no see. February is right around the corner (I can’t believe we’re already a month into 2018) which means another Random Fandom!

All you Night Vale fans rejoice! We are finally doing a Welcome to Night Vale Random Fandom!

Now, like a lot of the fandoms we cover, I don’t know too much about it. I read a couple chapters of the book that the creators wrote, but that’s about all I know, so forgive me if I make any mistakes.

You know the drill!

Overview

Who: you and all your friends
What: Night Vale Random Fandom
When: Thursday, February 8 (4:00 – 5:30 pm)
Where: Flower Mound Public Library in the Program Room (near the restrooms)
3030 Broadmoor Ln.
Flower Mound, TX 75022

Just remember: You don’t have to be in the fandom to come to the Random Fandom events. We try and plan out activities that both people in and out of the fandom will enjoy and understand.

Speaking of activities, we planned a jam-packed hour and a half for those of you who decide to attend!

A couple ground rules before you enter:

1. Just know that pretend mountains don’t exist.
2. You must hail the Glow Cloud when its (?) name is mentioned

Not too hard, now is it?

(Author’s note: I don’t know what the Glow Cloud is and I’m not about to assume its gender so it will remain an “it” to me until someone explains to me what it is.)

Now on to the activities!

There is going to be a game online where you can try and survive being an intern. There will also be a round of Round Robin and Pin the Three Tails on the Cat. You can also expect to make your own Glow Cloud if you decide to attend. You will also have the opportunity to play a game called Shoot the Librarian.

(Author’s note: We will not be shooting the actual librarians who are running this program. It is a Mafia-type game.)

And what’s a Night Vale Random Fandom without having a couple episodes of the Night Vale podcast? A fellow TAG member is curating a playlist of his favorite episodes to play in the background.

There will also be a game called “Is this quote from Night Vale or social media?” where there will be a quote on the screen and you have to guess whether it’s from Night Vale or someone posted it on social media. Going on the theme of guessing, there will be a game of guess the NV character with vague clues where the person giving the description must give a generalized description of a character and the people on their team will try and guess who the character is. It’s almost like a combination of Taboo and Charades.

If guessing games are not your thing, then maybe a game of telephone and paranoia will be! We are also going to chant school fight songs in a circle because why the heck not? It doesn’t matter if you don’t know your school fight song (I don’t either) because there will be lyrics provided. There is going to be a scavenger hunt where you have to spot the angel hidden somewhere in the children/teen section of the library.

Are you interested in any of these activities? Then make sure to mark your calendars for the Night Vale Random Fandom and come visit us!

See you there!

FMPL vs. NVPL

Welcome to Night Vale: a novel by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor came out in October 2015, and the podcast has been running since 2012. Here is a post with 10 differences on the Flower Mound Public Library with Night Vale Public Library.

  1. The only thing you need to bring is your library card, and maybe a bag or two. Not body bags, book bags.
  2. Librarians can, in fact, see the color blue. Sure, it’s only an urban myth in Night Vale, but we do know for fact that the librarians can see the color blue. They might not be able to see orange, though.
  3. There is not a map of the library, but it’s fairly obvious where each item is. You would not need a map or have to find out which of the maps you have are forgeries. There is even a system to how the books are organized.
  4. Everything will, in fact, be fine. Nothing bad is going to happen. No librarians who creep up and try to attack you. No man-eating books. No children-eating books. No people-eating books. Everything will be fine.
  5. The library will not be empty. There will usually always be a librarian around and even people, too. The librarians will be right where you can watch them.
  6. The bulletin board has events that are happening in the library. They are all new and happening that month. Also the Sheriff’s Secret Police will not report you or even observe you and take you to be interrogated for going to one of these events.
  7. The library is very well lit. No librarians can sneak up to you in the shadows since there are none. They usually lure you to them by implanting a question into your brain.
  8. There are no child statues that are in pain. The statue is happy. So happy. So terribly happy.
  9. The summer reading program is not dangerous. We don’t give out librarian heads as trophies and  everyone survives. Some even get to stay longer locked up in the library.
  10. There is no fountain in the library. That would be dangerous. Someone may drown or get stuck in it. Even worse the books would get wet.

A few more are: The librarians will not attack you. You will not find teeth scattered on the ground. The reading areas are safe. They do not have records of your life details. People don’t just visit because there are no options left.

If there is any I forgot to mention leave a comment below. Another thing you can leave a comment about is if you want to see a Welcome to Night Vale Random Fandom! Bye guys!
