Hi! I have returned!

So, I am officially back from the dead! (Not literally, but you get what I’m saying XD).

Hopefully, I’ll get to return to my usual posting! πŸ™‚ I had forgotten my password, and couldn’t get into my account. . . BUT I finally got it! So, here I am!

Also, I’ve gotten some more grammatical practice due to my fanfic writing on Wattpad! Visit me – the name’s Canofpears7!

Good to be back, my fellow sleuths! πŸ˜‰

Lani Minella – no longer Nancy?!

Tags

, ,

Hey, everyone.
Has anyone else been hearing about HeR choosing a new voice actress for Nancy?
If you’re on the HeR message boards like I am, you know perfectly well what I’m talking about.
It’s been said that, after the next game, Lani will no longer be our Nancy.
The message boards have multiple petitions up for HeR to keep Lani, and signatures have been flooding in.
If HeR truly does care about the desires and opinions of the fans, they need to show that by keeping this amazing voice actress.
Not only has Lani voiced Nancy Drew since the beginning, but she’s also voiced many other characters (parrots, mosquitos, Nancy’s mom!).
HOW CAN THIS BE HAPPENING?!
This is some of the worst Nancy Drew-related news I’ve ever heard.

What do you think is missing from Nancy Drew these days?

Hi!
I know I haven’t been on in awhile; sorry about that. . . But today I have a question for my readers.
What do you think is missing from Nancy Drew these days?
Think about how much she’s changed over the years, and how some current writers are trying to change her into this modern teen, take the ‘adventure’ from her mystery, and even take away her original charm and classic feel.
I’ve never read any of the Girl Detective series, because Nancy’s character sounds so, so wrong.
The Nancy Drew Diaries are good books, but where’s the danger? I was craving action; adventure.
Remember those days when Nancy didn’t care about mystery?! Never read them, and there’s a very low chance I will. If Nancy isn’t a witty, spunky sleuth, who is she?!
What series do you prefer?

The Mysteries Of Frozen

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Picture 837 Hi, everyone! πŸ™‚
Pardon me for my absence, for I seem to have caught the fanfiction bug. . . So, blame my absence on both my laziness and my time-consuming fanfiction.
Today I have decided to write about something a little different.
We’ve ALL seen Frozen, right? Ya’ know, the movie with the super-awesome Snow Queen Elsa, and her equally-awesome sister Anna?
Yeah, you remember – I can see it by the look on your profile pic. 8)
This blog is about mysteries, obviously, so I thought I’d take some time to point out the mysteries of Frozen.

WARNING: SPOILERS!

1. Whatever happened to Kristoff’s real parents?

Surely I can’t be the only Frozen-obsessed maniac who’s been wondering about this!
Did Kristoff already have parents when he was adopted by the trolls? Or was he an orphan?
The former just makes the trolls sound a little creepy, and I just don’t think it make sense.
There was one moment in the movie when Kristoff said, “it was just me and Sven.” But whatever happened to his parents?
Maybe they died due to the intensely cold temperatures? Or maybe they fell through ice one day (although, that makes me think that Kristoff would be afraid of going anywhere near the ice).
Perhaps they left Kristoff home one day and, for some unknown reason…never came back.
Ok, I’m stopping here with Kristoff – it’s so sad. 😦
I guess the important thing is that he found great rock-parents.

2. Who ruled the kingdom before Elsa came of age?

This is a question that my sister asked. I do think that this is an unsolved question – one that I’d like to hear your thoughts on.
I mean, a kingdom can’t rule itself…so who ruled over it after their parents died?

3. Hans.

His name is a question in itself. At the end of the movie, he’ll have you screaming “WHY, HANS?! WHY?!”
This has been one constant thread running through each of my fanfics – why did he do it?
Can I just say something crazy?. . . This is the part where you say, “i love crazy!”
. . . I am a little bit of a Helsa fan.
His underdeveloped relationship with Elsa is fanfic gold!
Some people ship Jelsa (Elsa/Jack Frost), and I’ll admit, I once thought it was a pretty cool ( πŸ˜‰ ) ship. But, I now know that Jack Frost is way too young to be shipped with her, in my opinion (I never watched the movie, so I had to read about him online).
Anyway, back to Hans.
We know that he has brothers (12 older brothers), but what we don’t know is how they treated him.
They may have been mean to him as I child (we know that a few of them pretended he was invisible for 2 years), or even as an adult.
What if Hans never really knew what love felt like, because he was never loved, himself? Being the youngest of 13 children in a royal family, what if no one really even payed attention to him?
Now, before you comment saying, “that’s no excuse for what he did, Sassy!”, I want to give ya’ll something else to think about.
Remember when Elsa fell in the ice palace to keep from being crushed by the chandelier? Well, how do you think she got back to the castle?
I’ll bet Hans carried her.
And who do you think put a blanket on her?
Hans.
Something happened to him to change him. He wasn’t the same Hans at the end of the movie that he was then.
Has anyone ever read the original story of the Snow Queen? In it, there is this mirror which only showed people the wicked parts of the world, it distorted even the kindest, most beautiful of things , making it seem like the ugliest, or evilest it can be.
One day, the mirror shattered, and pieces of it scattered everywhere. If a shard were to seep into a persons heart, they would become wicked, harsh, and rude. The better a person they were before, the worse they are now.
What if Hans somehow got a shard of glass in his heart?
Now, this is just a theory. There are also cursed snowflakes. πŸ™‚
There are multiple ways that Hans could have suddenly become evil, but there are also multiple things that could have happened after the events of the movie.
Perhaps He was sent back to Arendelle for punishment (as written by some other brilliant fanfiction writers). What if Elsa (in the event of a Helsa situation) ends up talking to him, learning about his past, and ultimately changing him for the better?
Sorry ya’ll, I can’t help but ship this. πŸ˜€

Now, I want to know what all of your opinions are about these “mysteries”. Do any of you have any idea as to what the answers to these questions may be? If you do, I I’d love to read ’em!
Have any other questions of your own that you would consider mysteries? Let me know!
I love read all of your comments, so feel free to leave one.
Then again, I’m perfectly fine with a like or a follow. πŸ˜‰

P.S. Kristanna ROCKS!

Labyrinth Of Lies

Hi!
I appoligize for how long it took me to post this.
I am pretty hooked on fan-fic, right now, and it’s got me distracted.
Anyway…
Who’s excited for ND #31: Labyrinth Of Lies, AKA LIE?!

WARNING: This post will be crammed with fan-girl speculations about the next Nancy Drew game. Don’t like reading possibly-meaningless speculations? This post is not for you.

Let’s get started!

This is my Fan-made cover art for LIE.

LIE Fan-Made CA 001

What do you think?
The woman on the front is Persephone. In Greek mythology, she is the unwilling bride of Hades, who kidnaps her and takes her as his wife.
I’m not going to go into to much detail but, eventually, Hades tricked Persephone into eating 6 pomegranate seeds, therefore condemning herself to 6 months out of every year in the underworld.

I am going to be perfectly honest – the only reason I know any of that is because of the internet. Where would we be without it?

From my Christian perspective, this Greek myth seems like some twisted version of Adam and Eve from the Bible (having been deceived by Satan, Eve gives the fruit to her husband, Adam, which GOD had warned them not to eat, committing the first ever sin, and therefore bringing the hurt and hardships into our world which we now have to endure).

I included a minotaur on my cover because, when I first read the title, the word ‘labyrinth’ caught my eye.
In Greek mythology, there is a myth about a minotaur (a half man, half bull creature) living in a labyrinth, and, uh…eating people.
Creepy, I know.

Ok. Back to actual game speculations…

I’m wondering if HeR’s version of Indiana Jones (my words, not their’s), Dylan Carter, will be in this game…
In TMB, this tour guide adorably asked Nancy if she’d come on one of his tours someday. As Nancy, you have the choice of saying yes or no. BUT, even if you do say ‘no’, Dyan will coax you into saying ‘maybe’.
I’d say that HeR definitely wants to bring him back – they obviously wanted to open up the possibilty of him returning.

I am almost certain that Bess and George will be in this game.
In MED, Nancy and George agreed that, for the next few months, they would do whatever Bess wanted to do, since she had to compete in the competition with them.
What if Bess heard/read about a tour lead by a certain cute, British guide in Greece?
Yep. if they aren’t physically there, I think that it will end up being like SHA – where Bess and George take a plane, but it ends up having trouble…or, at least, something like that.

Will the Hardys be joining us for this adventure in Greece?
Could it be that they are solving a mystery, as well?
If I am not mistaken, it has already been confirmed that they will be phone friends, if not physical characters.

As a loyal Nedcy fan, I hope that Ned will be in this game. He was in GTH and SPY, but not MED. Is it time for a come-back from good ol’ Neddy? Or is it too soon?
Only HeR knows for sure.

I have a feeling that this game will include a lot of information about Greek Mythology, but I really hope it doesn’t rely too heavily on it. It’s all an eye-roller to me, but I’m almost positive that HeR will put it to use in the games description and plotline.
Now that I’m typing this, it sounds like TMB all over again (a game which I actually quite liked).
After MED, I want a real mystery. For example:

Someone (possibly Nancy/a friend of Nancy) has been kidnapped! Could it be that Hades has claimed a second victim?

That’s just one example, but you get my point, right?

So what do y’all think this game will be like? Any ideas? Speculations?
I’d love to hear them!
Feel free to comment and tell me your thoughts!
Bye!

The Shattered Medallion

Hi! Sorry for the long wait, but I’m finally back and ready to review The Shattered Medallion!

Β 

Description: You as Nancy Drew, along with your friend, George Fayne, have been selected to participate in the hit reality TV show, Pacific Run: New Zealand.

The show has been taken over by none other than Sonny Joon. Is this TV show just another random job? Or does this alien-lover have something in mind for the contestants?

Before you can even begin to answer any of the major questions, things take a turn for the worst when George takes a terrifying plunge off of an unstable rope bridge!

Is it possible that one of the contestants is responsible for George’s fall?

Death seems to be the main opponent on this reality show, as contestants struggle to avoid it’s firm grasp.

Is Sonny Joon just a regular ol’ TV oddball? Or are his plans for the show a little more…out of this world?

Find out the truth behind these strange accidents, and discover a strange secret known only to Sonny Joon himself in The Shattered Meddalion.

Β 

I really liked this game. There were always new places to unlock and explore, and the animation was great (as usual :)).

Sonny was a great character! Although I disagreed with all of his alien talk, he had some great secrets that were certainly worth discovering, and a lot of great moments (including one that all ND and SJ shippers will L-O-V-E ;)). His character design was perfect as well. πŸ™‚

There were so many places to unlock and explore in this game, and you always had something to do!

I think that Bess and George’s looks were perfect! In RAN, George looked fine, but the animation of her hair needed some work. In ASH, George’s animation was better, but her look was all wrong. In this game, she looked perfect!

In RAN Bess looked fine, but it just seemed like there was something a little…off. In ASH, Bess looked better – there was just something about her hair that I didn’t like. In this game, she looks great!

You are only able to call Bess and George in this game. Before the characters wereΒ  revealed to us, I was hoping that we would have the Hardys as phone characters (I would’ve also loved to have Ned as a phone friend, but I doubted he’d be in this game since he was a phone character in GTH and SPY.).

Overall, I think this is a great game, and I would definitely recommend it.

Β 

TEASER:

WARNING: STOP READING IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE PLOT OF #31 TO BE SPOILED FOR YOU!

Β 

Β 

Good news for all who enjoy Greek mythology, because you, as Nancy Drew, are headed to Greece!

It seems like HeR has been hinting at a game located in Greece for a while now – and we’re finally going to see what they have planned for this amazing location!

This game is entitled “Labyrinth Of Lies”. If I had to guess, I’d say that the abbreviation is probably LIE.

For those of you who don’t know (even though all of you probably do) a labyrinth is like a maze.

The teaser for this game is completely based upon a story in Greek mythology (I am not too nowledgeable about Greek mythology, so the only reason I know that is because I found it on the internet :/).

As long as Nancy doesn’t believe the mythological story to be true (which I doubt she will) I think that this could turn out to be a very interesting mystery!

Chack back soon! I’m going to try to come up withΒ a fan-made cover or two for this game. πŸ™‚

Bye! Thanks for reading!
