Before the Curtain Falls
The State Theatre in River Heights has stood empty for years…until now. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the opera Roméo et Juliette will be performed there, bringing the theatre back to life. Rising star Daniela Cardoza has the lead role, and is eager to show off her abilities. However, she is somewhat nervous as she has been receiving mysterious notes and threats in the form of antique valentines and red roses. When mysterious accidents begin to happen around the theatre, threatening the production and the people in it, it’s up to local sleuth Nancy Drew to discover who’s responsible before the last note of the final cadenza…or before someone gets hurt.
snowqueenly said: me too! it’s so depressing. :( i usually check the tag at least once a day, but i think i’m going to have to stay out of it for a bit, just to be safe.
Same here! Whenever I post an outfit on detectiveworkisalwaysinstyle I go to the tag immediately after just to make sure it posted, but I think I’ll have to stop doing that.
When this happened with GTH I was so, so upset and disappointed and was hoping something like this would never happen again. I guess nothing really happening with SPY was too good to be true.
snowqueenly said: there was a beta version of MED that was leaked, so now the nancy drew tag is a bit of a minefield.
Ooh, that sucks! I scrolled by a picture in the tag really, really quickly, so I didn’t see a good glimpse of it. I’m super sad this happened, though :(
What’s all this about MED being leaked??? Please explain, I really haven’t been on in a while.
The Most Dangerous Vote
Small town politics can be a cutthroat, dog-eat-dog world, and River Heights is no different. Sandra Bennett, the current mayor, is planning to run again, but rumors and threats are wearing her down. Ms. Bennett has been accused of embezzling funds and gambling with them in hopes of increasing the amount. She has also been accused of helping the local high school football team access steroids so they can win. Bennett’s support has been gradually declining, but she still has a group of staunch supporters. When election season rolls around, some citizens of the town have become very outspoken in their dislike of the mayor. When they go missing from their homes and vehicles, people start blaming Mayor Bennett for having them “taken care of.” It’s up to Nancy Drew to get to the bottom of the rumors and discover the truth.

The Final Scene [x]
The Final Scene was the second game I played, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I loved roaming the theatre, and had my fingers crossed that Maya would be alright. The vintage theatre was just so beautiful to look at, and discovering all the nooks and crannies for the first time was a blast. To create a look inspired by this game, pair jacquard-print jeans with a cream sweater and a lacy infinity scarf. Gold and pearl earrings, a rabbit in a hat ring, a card ring, and a stack of bracelets complete the look.

Nancy Drew Meme | 1/2 Unanswered Questions | What Happened to the Girls?
Every time I replay CAP, I look around for any hidden details that I might have missed in my other play-throughs. However, I have never found anything that really explains what happened to the missing girls of the past, and nobody else in the fandom has either. Did the girls leave of their own will? Were they kidnapped and taken away never to be seen again? Or is there really a monster lurking in the woods outside the castle? There are so many possibilities, and yet we don’t know the truth.
Nancy Drew Meme | 1/1 Quote | It’s Locked
"It’s locked!" will forever be a classic line and never fails to remind me of my childhood. When my sister and I used to play the games together, we would repeatedly click on the doors just to hear Nancy say those two little words. After that, we would go off in search of a key and more locked doors to open, creating memories as we did.
Because I am a sucker for the Nancy Drew computer games, I decided to make a meme! Tag it with #nd meme so I can see what you all come up with!1 quote
