  • This is how I envision the beginning...
  • PART ONE:
  • "Ships Passing in the Night"
  • FADE IN.
  • EXT. NEW YORK CRUISE-PORT. DOCKYARDS. VERY EARLY MORNING.
  • The sky is still dark but there are signs in its dark navy color that dawn is slowly approaching. The air is chilled but that will change after dawn.
  • We open in vast dockyards. Fade in upon dockyards clearing. It rained earlier so the ground is shiny with rain and the morning dew. In the background are beacons of light, each with ethereal orbs surrounding the lights. Their purpose is to light up the dockyards and port-of-call at night. They are spaced evenly between one another.
  • CAMERA reaches a MID-ANGLE.
  • Suddenly, CAMERA PANS TO THE RIGHT QUITE RAPIDLY.
  • As it PANS BY, we see everything as if in a car zooming by. The towers of light pass us one by one, sending us into areas of light and dark, the dark between lights.
  • AS THE CAMERA CONTINUES TO PAN SIDEWISE (RIGHT), it passes rays and beams of light from the dockyards floodlights. The lights cause the ground level to shimmer and reflect off the surface, like a sunset on the horizon upon the ocean. The effect is tauntalizing.
  • In the dark we see pinpoints of light in the far background. Slowly we make out the silhouette of the New York City metropolis, particularly the Manhattan skyline. Pinpoints of red, orange, blue, yellow, and even green lights dot the metropolis. Each flare in their own way.
  • CAMERA CONTINUES TO PAN RIGHT RAPIDLY.
  • Suddenly, a SHADOWY FIGURE darts STAGE LEFT ON-SCREEN. We hear mirthful laughing as the SHADOWY FIGURE is running towards CENTER SCREEN. It's as if its in a race with the CAMERA.
  • CAMERA PANS ALONGSIDE RUNNING FIGURE.
  • The SHADOWY FIGURE is elusive at first but athletic. As it passes between the cones of light on the ground, it runs through beams of diagonal light. It's face is illuminated in a regular pattern.
  • It is a YOUNG LADY. She is smiling, laughing, and taking in the joie de vivre of the very early morning. She is dressed in a New York hipster style. She wears rimmed glasses and her beautiful auburn hair trails behind her as she runs, flowing in the wind surge she creates.
  • Every couple of seconds, she looks behind her to see if something is chasing her.
  • YOUNG LADY: (teasingly) Come on, Sonny! You gotta catch me!
  • No sooner does she say these words when a second SHADOWY FIGURE darts FROM THE LEFT. It is chasing the YOUNG LADY. The figure is that of a YOUNG MAN. He has black hair with purple and green fringe highlights. The hair is in disarray as he runs. The YOUNG MAN is laughing but its a more serious one in tone. He is trying to catch the YOUNG LADY who is running away from him.
  • This is SONNY JOON.
  • CAMERA PANS RAPIDLY SIDEWISE (TO THE RIGHT).
  • We keep up with the two running figures. Both are running TO THE RIGHT but stay CENTER SCREEN.
  • As the two run, in the background flash by stacks of cargo, loading cranes, dock works, waterworks, and every variety of ships docked at the port-of-call. Even though its early morning, we can see motion in the background. The port never sleeps. There is always work to be done.
  • The YOUNG LADY passes a stack of crates bound for a merchant ship.
  • YOUNG LADY: You have to keep up!
  • SONNY JOON: POPPY! Get back here!
  • POPPY DADA: I told you that you have to catch me!
  • SONNY JOON: Poppy, we shouldn't be here!
  • POPPY DADA ignores the pleas of SONNY JOON and teases him but letting him nearly catch her. Both are laughing at the ridiculousness of their joint early morning adventure.
  • Finally, POPPY DADA stops by a MAERSK shipping containers.
  • CAMERA PANS AROUND TO SHOW POPPY FACING US.
  • She pauses and tries to catch her breath. At the same time, her eyes are mesmerized by something behind us.
  • SONNY JOON collides into her gently.
  • SONNY JOON: Gotcha! Don't do that, Poppy! You know we shouldn't be here at this time.
  • SONNY JOON holds on to POPPY DADA in his arms as he hugs her.
  • POPPY DADA laughs it off.
  • CAMERA: HIGH-ANGLE.
  • All around the two are shipping containers stacked on top of another in an orderly fashion. We see several giant cranes in the background moving these containers unto cargo-holds of ships.
  • POPPY DADA: Oh come on, Sonny! You know how much I wanted to see it ever since it came into port.
  • SONNY JOON smiles and looks beyond POPPY DADA.
  • CLOSE-UP: Both of them in each other's arms looking up at something.
  • POPPY DADA: (entranced) It's nothing like I imagined it. It's a thousand times better!
  • CAMERA PANS AROUND TO A LOW-ANGLE BEHIND THE TWO.
  • Before them is a marvelous cruise ship. It is of a gigantic description and majestic in the early morning light. Floodlights from the dockyards shine upon it, giving the ship's white hull and exterior a gleaming look. It is an engineering wonder to behold.
  • The cruise ship is currently docked at the port. All around SONNY JOON and POPPY DADA is movement. Workers have been working around the clock to prepare the cruise ship for its next voyage. Several gangways have been dropped the ship-deck to the dock's ground level below. People are transporting supplies in and out of the cruise-ship at a constant speed. People on the ground level drive by in luggage carts, bringing them to loading bays to be put in the cruise ship's expanse cargo holds.
  • Several cranes lift crates of stocks and supplies into the cargo holds as well. It is beautiful to watch since the work is performed in such orderly method and efficiency. It is like watching a very difficult dance being performed before the two spectators due to its complimenting synchronicity.
  • POPPY DADA: (enchanted) Just look at it, Sonny. Isn't it just grand?
  • A twinkle in SONNY JOON's eye.
  • SONNY JOON: Yeah--yeah it is...
  • POPPY DADA: And you--(she gives SOONY a small punch to the shoulder)--you get to go on it on its next voyage with me! Where to?
  • POPPY DADA already knows the answer but to hear SONNY say it.
  • SONNY JOON: (feigning pain as he rubs his shoulder) To Bermuda.
  • POPPY DADA rests her head on SONNY's shoulder and smiles. Everything is perfect.
  • POPPY DADA: To Bermuda and back? (she looks up at SONNY who returns the gaze)
  • SONNY JOON cups her face in his hands.
  • SONNY JOON: To Bermuda and back.
  • They kiss.

CAP Musical

Book and Lyrics:
H.R. Jafael

««SONGS»»
ACT 01
• “Overture/The Traveller”
• “Close the Gates!”
• “The Latest from Bavaria”
• “Captivated”
• “Here(by) Hangs A Tale”
• “Captus Maledictionem”
• “Das Monster Ein Wald”

ACT 02
• “A Different Lullaby”
• “How to Play Raid”
• “Elephants a-Parading”
• “In the Clear”
• “Once Upon a Fire”
• “Sides of Life”
• “Sinisterly”
• “Open the Gates/Epilogue”

QUERY: Would you guys want a CAP musical to feature Nancy Drew or not? I have ideas for either way. Both present an interesting story but I’m a critical point if I’m to write the book.

A) A CAP musical from the point-of-view of Renate. She takes over the duties of Nancy and she “uncovers” the mystery.

B) Nancy is involved like she is in the game and it would maintain the same elements.

Which sounds more interesting to you?

Since i keep getting questions on, if the Mayans were only found in mexico. Here’s a visual, these were the regions of the Maya people. 

you mean where Maya peoples were, or where Maya peoples areLiving Maya Map

Above is an English version of a map produced with the Academia de Lenguas Mayas in Guatemala, there are also maps for Mexico and Belize (and there should be for El Salvador and Honduras).

I know settler colonial logics keep telling us Maya peoples are in the past, but Maya peoples are also in the present. And the future.

In Guatemala alone, there are 21 legally recognized living Maya peoples, as well as the non-Maya indigenous Xinca and the African Diaspora Garífuna.

We need a Nancy Drew game at a Miss America pageant where the whole thing is a mess and it turns out to be just like “Miss Congeniality”.

Where Should Nancy Go Next?

I want to know your dream locations for Nancy Drew games.

Just reblog with your answer please :)

Here are my locations:

Portugal/Spain
(I really want Portugal since it has so much to offer like a ton of medieval history, castles, scary castles, legends, Moorish treasure,…

I have a mighty need for an autumnal game set in Salem that has to do with witch trials.

I’d really like to see York, England in a Nancy Drew Game, or a Nancy Drew game that has Robin Hood or King Arthur legends related to the mystery somehow.
