Recap: Welcome To Night Vale Ep 13 A Story About You
"'This is a story about you,' said the man on the radio, and you were pleased, because you always wanted to hear about yourself on the radio. Welcome to Night Vale."

You start to read the page, and find that it is quite different then the usual recap. The recap page says what you are doing, which is reading this page; and you are pleased, because you've always wanted to read about yourself on TV Tropes.

As you continue reading, the page explains that "A Story About You" is a slightly different episode, in which Cecil narrates the day-in-the-life of a nameless Night Vale citizen from a second-person perspective; their day job moving boxes, enjoying food at the local Moonlite All Night Diner, and the strange apparition they keep seeing, of a dark planet lit by no sun. The person steals a mysterious box from their job, which calls down the wrath of a purple cloud on Night Vale. Because the radio is narrating every event of their life, the Secret Police easily catch up with the citizen. The citizen's abandoned fiance appears with the Secret Police, and the box is opened to reveal a miniature house. The Man Who Is Not Short holds a knife to the citizen's throat as they revel in the consequences of their actions finally catching up to them.

The "Apache Tracker" also makes a brief appearance, now mysteriously changed into an actual Native American.

Tropes present in A Story About You include:


"Today’s proverb: I’d never join a PEN15 club that would allow a person like me to become a member."
