Adventures at Space Camp

Chapter One: Parousia

Before Nancy Wheeler had even fully put her car in park, four antsy and eager teenaged boys flung its doors open and bustled out into the bright sunlight of a warm July afternoon, their sneakers kicking up dust from the dry footpath she had temporarily parked on. Nancy took a moment to close her eyes and press her head against the steering wheel. It had been two and a half hours of bickering and loud chatter since they had left Hawkins and she desperately needed a painkiller for the pulsing in her head. Might as well get used to it, her brain reminded her, you’ve got two weeks of this lined up. Still, Nancy maintained that the headaches were worth the experience she’d be able to put on to her college applications in the Fall.

Sighing, Nancy turned the car off and slid out of the driver’s seat while the boys, her younger brother and his three best friends, fidgeted around the vehicle. They were watching the dirt road that looped through the dense woods back to the highway with intent eyes, clearly waiting.

“Jonathan will be here with your bags soon,” she assured them, “Why don’t you guys go check out your cabin? It’s 2C.” She needed a few moments to herself, a few silent moments in the sunlight. The boys didn’t need to be told twice and they bounded off, excited. Nancy grinned as they disappeared around a bend in the path and quickly peeked at her reflection in her car’s rearview mirror, tucking a stray strand of hair behind her ear.

The boys found 2C without any problems and were thrilled to see they had snagged the biggest cabin on the campground, Dustin immediately noting that they’d be able to set up their D&D game without being squished shoulder-to-shoulder like last year. Mike, rummaging through his backpack for his supercom, wouldn’t admit it aloud but he was sure the fact that his older sister was the head counsellor this year had something to do with their living arrangement for the next two weeks.

“Do you think your brother will be here soon?” Mike asked, glancing up at Will who had claimed the top bunk over his own. It was the same set up they kept when Will slept over at his house back in Hawkins. 

“Probably,” Will said, tilting his head off the top bunk, his hair standing on end as gravity took over. “I hope so. I want to play D&D tonight.”  

“D&D?” Lucas echoed with slight disbelief, “I want to use the giant telescope in the observatory. Oh man, I hope there’s a meteor shower at some point and…”

“Lucas, you’ve been yapping nonstop since we left Hawkins!” Dustin complained, “We have the next two weeks to use the telescope!”

“And we have our whole lives to play D&D,” Lucas retorted.

“Guys!” Mike rolled his eyes, “Do you ever shut up?”

“Ask Lucas,” Dustin grinned cheekily and Lucas made a face at him.

“Knock, knock!” A loud voice pulled the boys out of their argument and drew their attention, in unison, to the door of their cabin, hanging slightly ajar.  Standing there was a tall and slender girl with long red hair and jeans that were faded and ripped at the knees.

“We’re your neighbours,” she stated matter-of-factly, stepping confidently inside the cabin. Behind her, another girl lingered in the doorway. She was shorter with wispy and dark hair, and she wore a pink sundress. “I’m Max!” the red-haired girl continued enthusiastically, “This is my best friend El!” When her name was mentioned, the girl in the pink dress entered the cabin and waved at the boys.

“El?” Mike asked, still looking at the smaller girl. Her gaze turned toward him and she met his eyes with her own. Immediately Mike felt his face flush and he looked at the ground. He was pretty sure he’d never seen prettier eyes.

“It’s short for Elise,” the girl clarified, a small smile on her lips.

“I’m Mike,” he mumbled, “And this is Dustin, Lucas, and Will.” He gestured towards each of his friends in turn, watching as they waved.

“Is this your first year here?” Dustin asked. The boys had been attending Space Camp for three straight years now and they had never encountered Max or El before.

“Yeah,” Max nodded excitedly, “I’m like super into aliens and—”

“Aliens aren’t real,” Lucas cut in and Max looked over at him with wide eyes. Mike noticed that El frowned at his comment and fixed her eyes on the ground.

“Sure they are!” Max insisted, “The universe is endless. There are definitely aliens.”

“There could be,” Dustin offered helpfully and Mike had to hide his grin. He knew Dustin didn’t believe in aliens.

“What about you, El?” Will piped up, still perched on the top bunk, “What are you most excited about?”

“Stargazing,” El said quietly, “And seeing the planets.”

That’s what I’m talking about!” Lucas nodded enthusiastically.

The conversation continued for several minutes, El remaining mostly silent, until Jonathan poked his head in the door and let the boys know he had arrived with the rest of their bags.

“Mike totally has a crush on El,” Dustin grinned maniacally as the boys settled into their cabin after dinner.

“Do not!” Mike insisted, “I don’t even know her. You can’t have a crush on someone you don’t know!”

“Says who?”

“Says everybody, Dustin,” Mike retorted, trying to ignore the heat on his cheeks.

“Well then why were you staring at her over your macaroni tonight?” Dustin asked teasingly, putting on a face that looked lovestruck. Mike felt embarrassed, knowing that Dustin’s impression was probably all-too-accurate of how he had been looking at El during dinner.

“Will you two shut up!” Lucas rolled his eyes. “We should start planning for the model rocket competition.” He picked up the notebook that was resting on his lap and waved it in the air.

“We have a whole week to do that,” Dustin said, rummaging through his backpack and pulling out a bag of chips, “Anyways, why do you think she’s so quiet? It’s kind of weird.”

“You can be quiet and not weird,” Will muttered from his spot beside Lucas, “Maybe she’s just shy?”

“Nah,” Dustin shook his head, “I bet it’s something else.”

High School AU HCs: Saeyoung

Hi! Here’s the Choimato! I always have fun writing him! 

  • You two had a little fling going on during church camp when you were 14.
  • You really liked him, but a few days later you got back from church camp, he stopped speaking to you
  • And so it continued until you two made it to high school.
  • He is the class clown, always pulling pranks on his classmates and on teachers, but he’s super smart, so even being in detention almost every day, he still has amazing grades.
  • You are a reporter in the school newspaper, you have no chill when it comes to finding scoops and schemes begotten by the administration.
  • So here you are in the principal’s office following a lead about the possibility of money evasion.
  • You hear the door being open… SHIT! According to your sources, the principal wouldn’t come back in at least fifteen minutes! SHIT SHIT SHIT!
  • Oh, it isn’t the principal, it is… “Saeyoung?” “MC?” you stare at each other, puzzled. Actually, you’re surprised he still knows your name…
  • “W-what are you doing here?” you ask him. “Hmmm, nothing much. You?” “Nothing…” “We chose a interesting place to do nothing.”
  • “Yeah, yeah, so leave! I gotta finish doing… nothing.” “Ladies first…” “Seriously, Saeyoung, I don’t have time for your bullshit right now.” “Great, so just leave!”
  • “No! I got here first!” “To what? To do nothing? Or are you playing Nancy Drew again?” “This isn’t of your business, and what about you? You’re here to do one of your stupid pranks, right?” you were both caught.
  • You two hear steps down the hallway, SHIT! “Lock the door!” you whisper desperately to him, he obeys. “What now, Nancy Drew?” “Stop calling me that and let me think…”
  • You notice the principal’s silhouette through the door glass trying to force the lock. “I have an idea!” he says, taking his phone out of his pocket. “Hello! I would like to report a bomb threat…” WHAT THE FUCK? You try to take his phone away from him, he holds you, you would feel really aroused by being this close to him again if he wasn’t committing basically a crime right now.
  • “Yes, in the principal’s office. Because I installed it. Hurry, I might get a little impatient…” he turns it off. “What the hell, Saeyoung?” “What? Now they can’t enter here and we can escape through the ventilation ducts, I’ve been there before, don’t worry.” “You’ve been in the ducts?” “You’re not the only one who likes some adventure, Nancy Drew, now let’s go!” he grabs your hand.
  • “I know it’s hard, but try not to stare at my butt too much, okay?” “Oh yeah, I’m so interested in your butt, Saeyoung!” “You were in church camp, do you think I forgot?”you two were crawling through the steamy ducts and bickering at the same time.
  • “Yeah, I thought you forgot, considering you ignored me since then.” “I… it was for your own good.” “Ah, don’t give me that crap! If you just don’t like me, you could have told me!”
  • “But I… liked you. It’s just… you wouldn’t understand.” “I understand you are a compulsive liar! Reporting a bomb threat, manipulating people on your weird pranks, and giving me some bullshit about me not being able to understand you? What could I not understand, Saeyoung?”
  • “My mom being arrested for assaulting my brother and he going to military school to stay away from all of this, staying away from me?” Oh, his brother… you remember him in church camp too, he was quiet and shy… poor boy…
  • “Saeyoung, I… I’m sorry. I didn’t know.” You two stop crawling, he writhes his whole body to face you. “You couldn’t know, it happened a few days after church camp, I… I didn’t want to scare you off with my family problems, so I just started ignoring you, which now I know it was probably a little douchy…” “Very douchy, actually. But… I understand your reasons, don’t worry.” “Y-you do?”
  • You two crawled a little more and got out in the pool gymnasium, the whole school got evacuated due to the bomb warning. Nobody enters, nobody leaves, and that include you two.
  • But you didn’t want to leave, you were talking again, you had so much to say to him, you missed him ever since that great week in the camp… telling stories by the fire, having lunch together, making out in the lagoon… “Do you wanna go for a swim?” he asked, taking his shirt off, you did your best not to look.
  • “I… what if they catch us?” “Well, it’s simple, we go to detention.” You giggle, well, nobody was here… you took your shirt and shorts off, thank god you had a cute underwear, he probably agreed as he checked you out quickly, thinking you didn’t notice.
  • You two got in the water, it was slightly tepid. He squinted his eyes, you remember he couldn’t see much without them and giggled, so you went close to him to help him. “And what happens in detention?” you asked, trying to ignore his little shivers to your touch.
  • “Well, you can sleep, do homework, write an essay telling who you are…” “Like the Breakfast’s Club?” “Yeah… the teacher probably like this movie.” You two giggle.
  • And you keep talking about high school movies after you two got out of the pool. “I can’t believe you didn’t watch ‘Heathers’, Saeyoung! Seriously, ‘Mean Girls’ is a B movie compared to this one!” “What about ‘Clueless’?” “Classic. But still… Heathers is better!” “Blasfemy!”
  • “But hey, we’re forgetting the best high school movie ever made…” he says, and you two sing together: “What time is it? Summertime! It’s our vacation! What time is it? Party time! Say it out loud!” you two laugh.
  • You sigh “I missed you, Saeyoung.” “I missed you too, MC… but what can I do? The Choi brothers are… complicated.” “I don’t mind complicated, if you only knew what kind of stunt I pulled to get  a scoop…” “I know, I read the newspaper for your scoops.”
  • “So uhm… I know the Choi boys are complicated, but… maybe one of them is a really good kisser?” “You should ask my brother, I don’t know, I…” you roll you eyes and kiss him timidly, when you’re backing away, he pulls you back, one hand in your dampy hair, the other in your waist.
  • He giggles through the kiss when you move your hand to his ass, yes, just like church camp.
  • It was night when you two got out, turns out the little prick had copies of the keys with him all the time, he just wanted to spend some ime to you, but how he got the keys is a secret not even a great journalist like you will ever know.
  • he was complaining about how lame his glasses were, you came close and took them off his face. “I can do something to get them to cooler, maybe some yellow stripes?” “But… I can’t see without them.” “Just another excuse for you to come to my place, silly. My mom will be working until late…”
  • “Oh, I can see the news!  Nancy Drew having an affair with Ferris Bueller!” “You’re way cooler than Ferris Bueller, now let’s go! There are a few things I want to see ever since church camp.” You grab his hand, and he smiles. He was complicated, but… at least he wasn’t alone.
Adventures at Space Camp (3)

1 // 2 

The boys had several questions for El but no time to gather their thoughts and ask them. Jonathan had caught up to them on the hiking trail, indicating that Hopper wanted to see them and carting them off before they had a chance to say anything at all to the mysterious, quiet girl they had recently met. Mike glanced over his shoulder as they were led back toward the lodge, but Max and El were already disappearing around a bend in the path to catch up with the remainder of the group.

Once the boys shuffled into Hopper’s office, Mike sandwiched between Dustin and Lucas on a stiff couch, an ominous feeling fell over them. None of the boys had actually ever spoken to Hopper for more than a few moments, neither here at camp nor in Hawkins where he served on the police force. He was much bigger and much more intimidating than any of them. Hopper surveyed the boys with an emotionless face, his eyes tired and his hands looped into his belt. Mike felt as though they were being interrogated and even though he knew they had done nothing wrong he was nervous, his palms turning clammy in his lap.

“Was Will acting strange last night?” Hopper began abruptly, settling back in a chair opposite of them. All three boys began to speak at once, vehemently denying any odd behaviour from their friend. Hopper, unable to make out a single word from the cacophony, silenced them with a raised hand and pointed to Lucas.

“You,” he instructed, “Sinclair. Was Will acting weird?”

“No way,” Lucas said, firmly shaking his head, “He was fine.”

“Maybe he ran off?” Hopper suggested, watching them carefully for any reaction.

“Like hell!” Dustin exclaimed, sounding offended at the very thought, “He wanted to come here more than anything!”

“He was really excited. And his mom saved up forever,” Mike added for good measure, “He’s definitely missing! And we want to help find him!” The cold and unamused look he received from Hopper in response nearly withered him and Mike sunk back into the sofa, deflated.

“Nice try, Wheeler,” Hopper said gruffly, eyebrows knitted together, “But you kids are staying far away from this. Do I make myself clear?”

The boys nodded glumly, knowing better than to argue with the man in charge. They’d obey—at least they would pretend to obey.

“Now,” Hopper continued, “I have a few more questions.”

Chapter Two: Sunrise 

The night air was chilly against his cheeks as Mike stepped out of Cabin 2C and into the overwhelming darkness of the woods. Steeling himself against the fear bubbling in his stomach, he began to march towards the trees but he hadn’t gone more than a few steps before he heard Dustin and Lucas bustle out after him, hissing that this was probably a terrible idea and urging him to turn around. Mike paused and waited for them to catch up, resolute in his plan—not that he had much of a plan.

“Do you even know where Jonathan’s cabin is?” Lucas asked when he and Dustin caught up to Mike’s side. He quickly flicked on his flashlight, accidentally shining it in Mike’s eyes as he did so.

“Not exactly,” Mike admitted, shielding his eyes, “And can you be careful with that thing?”  He continued down the path illuminated only by the pale and garish yellow beams of three flashlights, flanked by his friends. “But the counsellor’s cabins are that way,” Mike continued, vaguely waving a hand in front of him.

“This is a bad idea, guys,” Dustin whined, letting out a long, low sigh. “We don’t even have weapons.”

“Nothing’s hunting us,” Lucas rolled his eyes and resisted the urge to elbow Dustin in the ribs as they huddled together on the narrow path.

“That’s what you think,” Dustin whispered back sharply. As they reached a bend in the path, the boys heard the rustling of branches to their left and whipped around, their breath catching in their throats as a tall figure emerged out of the brush.

“What are you guys doing out here?”

Mike let out a sharp breath, the fear that had built up in his chest deflating as he realized it was just Steve Harrington standing in front of them, his arms crossed across his chest and the small smirk on his face just visible in the dim light.

“Lights out was half an hour ago,” Steve continued, lazily brandishing his flashlight in their direction. He recognized the messy dark hair and freckled face of Nancy’s little brother and laughed. “Never took you for the rebellious type,” he grinned in Mike’s direction, trying a joke that fell flat. Mike simply looked flustered.

“We were just—” Mike began, but Lucas cut him off, stepping forward.

“We wanted to check out the stars.” Lucas feigned an innocent little smile, the kind that never failed him when he had to charm his way out of trouble with the teachers at school. Steve nodded and shrugged, the smirk still playing on his lips—he knew that smile; he had practically invented it.

“Lots of time to do that,” he said pointedly, pointing them back in the direction they had come from. Defeated and with no other options, the boys turned on their heels and began the retreat back to their cabin, Steve lingering a moment longer to watch them go.

“What a douche,” Lucas muttered under his breath.

“Bet you hate that your sister has the hots for him,” Dustin nudged Mike in the ribs and the taller boy shoved him away, face scrunched up in disgust.

“Gross,” Mike mumbled, “And can you focus on Will for just one second? He’s still missing if you haven’t noticed.”

“Relax Mike,” Lucas patted him on the shoulder as they bustled back inside the cabin, “He probably got too scared to come back so he’s spending the night with Jonathan.”

“I guess,” Mike relented, climbing into his bunk. As soon as his head hit the pillow, he was struck with an idea and reached down to the foot of his bed.

“The supercoms!” Mike exclaimed. Lucas and Dustin looked at him blankly from their own bunk for a moment before catching on, their eyes lighting up.

“Did Will bring his out?” Lucas asked. Without answering, Mike scrambled to the top bunk and rustled through Will’s sheets while Dustin rummaged through his luggage.

“It’s not here,” Mike announced after a moment.

“Not here either,” Dustin added, trying to straighten out the clothes he had strewn about on the floor.

“So he must have it,” Lucas said, bounding over to Mike and Dustin, “Try calling him.” Mike nodded vigorously and hurriedly  set his supercom to Channel 6, the the one they had all agreed upon earlier in the day.

“Will, are you there? Over.” Mike’s voice practically shook with hopeful anticipation.

The boys waited in tense silence for a moment, but there was nothing but faint static in response to their question. Mike felt deflated and tossed his supercom aside, frustrated.

“He’s got to be with Jonathan,” Lucas repeated, though he sounded less confident now. Mike and Dustin nodded lamely, an unspoken question lingering in the air. If Will was spending the night with his older brother, why wouldn’t he have called to let them know?

“Let’s just get some sleep,” Dustin suggested quietly, “Lucas is right.”

The boys each retired to their beds and Dustin put out the lamp with a faint goodnight. Mike closed his eyes, trying to catch sleep as he tossed and turned, hoping that Lucas was indeed right.

how to make a nancy drew adventure game: 

  • 4-6 suspects who are equally suspicious 
  • centuries old puzzles that happen to still be in the right place/working
  • music based puzzle 
  • hidden passageway 
  • CHO RE S
Every Nancy Drew PC game ranked from worst to best.

So! Ever since I completed the tedious undertaking of ranking all the Nancy Drew suspects, I’ve had people asking me to do a comprehensive ranking of the games themselves (like two people, but that still counts as people). And if you trawl my tumblr, you can see I have been promising to do that exact thing since 2012! So here it is, finally.

Standard disclaimer applies: these are my opinions and my opinions only. They’re completely subjective and based on my own personal likes and dislikes. There are games I hate that I know people love, and games I adore that I know people can’t stand (lots of them, even!). I in no way claim this ranking as definitive. You do you.

Oh, and Dossier games aren’t included, and spoilers for everything, obviously.

Edit, June 2015: As I’ll update this every time a new game comes out, expect changes to occur. I’ll add some liner notes at the bottom of the ranking to justify these adjustments.

With that out of the way? LEGGO BITCHES.
