Recap / Welcome To Night Vale Ep 45 A Story About Them

"This is a story about them, says the man on the radio, and you are concerned, because this is not a story you were ever supposed to hear. Welcome to Night Vale."

The title of this episode seems familiar to you.

Tropes present in A Story About Them include:

  • Arc Words: The Dark Planet, lit by no sun calls out to another victim.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: They are ostensibly working a secret operation, but don't really make any attempt to hide it. For example, no one is bothered when they tune into the radio and hear their every action is being narrated.
  • Narrating the Present: Like "A Story About You", the events being narrated are happening as they are being narrated.
  • Sequel Episode: To "A Story About You"
