In my experience, writers tend to be really good at the inside of their own heads and imaginary people, and a lot less good at the stuff going on outside, which means that quite often if you flirt with us we will completely fail to notice, leaving everybody involved slightly uncomfortable and more than slightly unlaid.
So I would suggest that any attempted seduction of a writer would probably go a great deal easier for all parties if you sent them a cheerful note saying “YOU ARE INVITED TO A SEDUCTION: Please come to dinner on Friday Night. Wear the kind of clothes you would like to be seduced in.”
And alcohol may help, too. Or kissing. Many writers figure out that they’re being seduced or flirted with if someone is actually kissing them.
Night Vale is a normal small town, and Cecil’s a radio host, but his show comes on really late. He decided to just have fun with it. Unbeknownst to him, everybody listens in. He’s been dating Carlos since the beginning and Carlos just shakes his head at the antics. Cecil and Steve Carlsburg are best buds and Cecil is just screwing with him. The idea for the angels came when Old Woman Josie (out by the car lot) called her grandchildren angels for helping her, and it just took off from there.
