INTRODUCTION


Summer Resort of Ericeira, Portugal — June 1, 2014

So here I am, staring out on an open sea. The windows are open and I can smell the sea, a calling that would have made a sailor out of me. That is, had I not turned my pen to paper, forever establishing me as a writer, a practitioner in fiction, always henceforth categorizing my storytelling in parts and chapters.

I’m digressing, aren’t I? The thing about me is that I’m a romantic at heart and love to explore every aspect of a story, no matter the circumstances. I blame Wilkie Collins and Agatha Christie for making me see life as a grand mystery that their respective detectives were at fault and could not solve. Life cannot be solved—it happens and whatever unfolds, let it do so. Knowing this in hindsight, it was a strange comfort that everything worked towards a central purpose. Its helped me to see clearly in all of the cases I’ve covered.

It helps me to see now—and that gives me some assurance that I know where to go in writing this narrative. I’m a storyteller at heart and boy do I have a story to tell. I do not deceive myself that this may never see the light of day should the parties concerned withhold their right of consent. Nevertheless I write—just in case…

I always loved the summertime here in Portugal—it was the season that always made me all the more at home. It helped me in more ways than one to take my mind off things. My head swims with thoughts of what I must tell but tell it I shall.

What utter delusion I was under.

I could not stop thinking—it’s come to the point that I have to put thought to paper. Hence this, I suppose. Hence this awfully strange story between strangers and how destinies crisscrossed paths together. I was an unexpected witness to the events that happened.

I have had word from Nancy and she and Sonny have given me permission to tell the tale. And what a tale it is.

"Do what you must," I remember Sonny telling me the day he left Lisbon to who knows where. He looked tired and weary. "Do me a favor, Jonathan—if you write anything, write the truth."

And with a sad look and a silent goodbye, he walked to his gate awaiting his flight. That was the last time I saw Sonny and I don’t know if I’ll ever see him again.

Sit back and let me begin. Let me tell you how these strangers were led to one another. Let me tell you the truth of the matter.

This one is for Sonny and Nancy.

Their lives were fated.

Okay guys—here’s the GAME PLAN.

The HeR Boards should be back up this week. The MED board is very likely to be there when it does.

Here’s how it’s gonna go down: we—you—all of the Clue Crew who prides themselves in laughing at the “blogging the HeR boards” tag—we all invade the MED board.

I’m…

I have been summoned??? I have been summoned!

YOU CAN BUY THE REAL GOLDEN GARDENIA B&B
(or, at least the house it was based on)
Being the absolute historic architecture nerd that I am, I love looking at old houses for sale, and I came across this very familiar one. I’ve seen posts before about it being a real place, but this is legit Clue Crew Mansion material.

SHIT GUYS WHO WANTS TO RENT THIS PLACE WITH ME

Should I get a mug with Sonny Joon on it before or after I admit that I’ve lost control of my life?

I’m incredibly excited to reveal what I’ve been working on for the past couple weeks! It’s a portrait of Frances Humber, which I have titled Flowers On Your Favorites. Drawn in pencil, inked with Micron pens, then colored in Photoshop. Every detail is a reference to the game. I incorporated as many of Frances’ favorite flowers as I could; sunflowers, tulips, and Harrison’s Yellow roses. The shape of the frame was inspired by the radio sitting next to her picture in the game. This is the first Nancy Drew drawing I’ve ever done, and I’m super proud of it. Click here to see it bigger and check out all the details!

I’m working on a Nancy Drew/Sonny Joon fanfic called “Fated” that I can’t wait to share with you guys. It’s going to be a novelette and with a pre-MED setting. It all starts when Nancy Drew boards Air New Zealand flight 382 to Auckland. She has to sit next to a stranger that makes her question her role in coming to New Zealand and a strange young man she always seems to be one step behind.

"Do you mind if I sit here?" The woman asked. "My name is Miranda Joon and I believe you know my son…"
