While I was looking around at interviews, I came across this interesting tidbit. In the May Newsorama.com interview, Jeffrey says, when talking about fan interpretations of Cecil, “But people don’t have to limit Cecil to a certain visual, or body type, or even gender.

It’s pretty well known in the fandom that Cecil’s race and size are open to interpretation, but there aren’t a ton of headcanons that take this into account. While I’m pretty sure Cecil has accepted (or at least not objected to) he/him pronouns in the show, it is entirely possible that he doesn’t identify as male. 

incorporearl asked:

"Why didn't you tell me about this?"

goodnightcecil-goodnight answered:

"I… I didn’t want you to worry…" he murmured. "Don’t worry, I’m fine. It doesn’t matter."

incorporearl:

"It has!  …And I wish that hadn’t stopped, in the middle there.  I… I hope we can get back to that."  He smiled down at Cecil.  "I’m glad I know you, too."

"I think I like how that sounds," he smiled. "Getting back to that. I miss it. I miss my best friend…"

incorporearl asked:

"Why didn't you tell me about this?"

goodnightcecil-goodnight answered:

"I… I didn’t want you to worry…" he murmured. "Don’t worry, I’m fine. It doesn’t matter."

incorporearl:

Earl continued gently combing through Cecil’s hair.  ”I’ve always been glad to know you too.”  He smiled, brushing his hand over his friend’s ear.  ”Maybe so.  We managed to get in plenty of trouble anyway together, too.”

"Mmm, yeah," he hummed, smiling. "It’s been fun, hasn’t it? Always had something to do." He let out a wistful sigh, and rolled onto his back, looking up at Earl. "Yeah. I’m really glad I know you."

incorporearl asked:

"Why didn't you tell me about this?"

goodnightcecil-goodnight answered:

"I… I didn’t want you to worry…" he murmured. "Don’t worry, I’m fine. It doesn’t matter."

incorporearl:

Earl smiled, lightly rubbing up and down Cecil’s nose.  He liked being here when Cecil needed him.  It would bother him far more to not be here.  Watching and being unable to help in any way would be the worst… but he’d do what he could, and if nothing else, Cecil wouldn’t have to be alone.

He smiled a bit wider, and gently nuzzled Earl’s leg. He was tired, and felt like he was beginning to fall ill, but he didn’t much care. He was happy. Everything was a soft, peaceful, haze, and it didn’t feel like much could ruin it. “I’m glad I know you. If I didn’t… I would’ve gotten into a lot more trouble throughout my lifetime…” he whispered.

incorporearl asked:

"Why didn't you tell me about this?"

goodnightcecil-goodnight answered:

"I… I didn’t want you to worry…" he murmured. "Don’t worry, I’m fine. It doesn’t matter."

incorporearl:

Earl shook his head, stroking Cecil’s hair gently.  ”You’re not someone I put up with.  I put up with people I have no choice but to work with.  You, I don’t have to… but you’re my friend, and I love you, and I want to be here.”

Cecil smiled softly, and let his eyes slip shut. No matter what Earl said, he still felt that he was a bother, and he was still grateful for Earl, and everything he helped with. “Thank you, Earl. So, so much…”

incorporearl asked:

"Why didn't you tell me about this?"

goodnightcecil-goodnight answered:

"I… I didn’t want you to worry…" he murmured. "Don’t worry, I’m fine. It doesn’t matter."

incorporearl:

Earl sighed and nodded, rubbing gently around Cecil’s hairline with his fingertips.  ”I know…  I just want you to be… okay.  But it can wait.”

"I know how you’re feeling," he murmured. "And I’m very grateful for the way you’re handling it…Thank you…"

incorporearl asked:

"Why didn't you tell me about this?"

goodnightcecil-goodnight answered:

"I… I didn’t want you to worry…" he murmured. "Don’t worry, I’m fine. It doesn’t matter."

incorporearl:

Earl paused.  ”…I think it would help, but I won’t force you.  Later, though, you’ll need to.  It really will help.”

"Thank you…" he murmured, letting his head fall back to its original position. "I’m sorry if I worry you, or anything… I just… don’t feel like eating…"
