- Bess and George are presumably first cousins, since many of the books that they're in mention them having some of the same aunts, uncles, cousins and other relatives, but in book-#55 of the original book series, it's mentioned that Bess's mothers maiden name is "Boonton" (or something that starts with a "B") without mention if George's mother has the same maiden name as her (or whatever George's mother's maiden name is). From that, I've assumed that Bess's father and George's mother are probably siblings.
- See here for the full theory.
- Consider this: Wherever Nancy goes, be it France or Italy or Egypt, this mysterious figure has always preceded her. In some cases, he even leaves notes that help her to solve puzzles- seemingly unintentionally. He's intelligent but quite eccentric, and- no matter how many times he gets fired- Sonny is always able to find a new job, dangerous though those jobs be. I theorize that this is not a coincidence. He's in fact a Sidereal (probably Chosen of Secrets) trying to smooth the way for Nancy to solve those mysteries that need solving, and probably lightening his own workload by doing so.
- Tired of hiding her true family history, Jane decided to spread the secret to the entire world by making a computer game like she always wanted. However, the secret can't be just given away, so she decided to include every puzzle that her ancestors included so only the true of heart and stout of mind could find the treasure.
- Unfortunately, her plan was undermined when someone released a walkthrough for it.
"For one thing, Essex does not have moors. Fens (wet-lands), yes; moors, no. Therefore, the house should be Blackfen Manor. Worse, Penvellyn is not an Essex name - especially not one that would have survived from the 14th century. This story belongs in Devon or Cornwall - on Exmoor, Dartmoor, or Bodmin. Where they have moors, dark manors, rumours of beasts, and ancient families with names like Penvellyn!" There is also a mythical Beast of Bodmin.
- Fridge Brilliance: If the previous WMG is true, then Jane may have deliberately re-located her family estate to Essex in-game to prevent annoying video game fans from showing up in the flesh and snooping around her family's estate.
- Ned seems to have gotten his powers back recently, though, if Warnings at Waverly Academy are any indication.
- Alternately, Jane is secretly claustrophobic, and only felt as if she was suffocating because she was trapped. The box actually contains enough air for her to survive for hours, and it probably isn't airtight anyway, because the floor it's sitting on is uneven.
- Hold on a second. I can think of a theory that is worse. Nancy Drew video games operate in Comic-Book Time - one of the games takes place during the Great Depression, for crying out loud - so there really can be any amount of years between Stay Tuned and Waverly. What if Izzy's father was Rick Arlen? Then it would turn out that Lillian broke down and went mad with jealousy not just because Rick left her, but because her left her with a small child. Talk about an Asshole Victim!
- Or how about ALL past culprits work together in a world wide mystery that brings back all of the fan favorites and an actual appearance of Sonny and Prudence!
- That would be AWESOME! Of course, it would ruin the whole ambiguity about what they look like, but still.
- Look, Dwayne is nuts. He would kill the damn shark and he would swim away if it meant he could kill Nancy another day.
- This Troper saw this and realized that yes, it was inevitable.
- Well, the reason why she doesn't appear is explained in that instance (the mirror was a projecting a recording or something along those lines), but she didn't show up in the mirror in Message in a Haunted Mansion either.
- Maybe Nancy grew bored with immortality, and solves mysteries to entertain herself? (This theory also explains why her clothes are so outdated- she dislikes today's fashions.)
- One problem, though. If Nancy's a vampire, why is she so sceptical of the existence of ghosts? Does her world have vampires, but no other supernatural creatures?
- Think about it. In "Ransom of the Seven Ships" we get to see Bess and George's faces and the bad guy gets away. Then in "Trail of the Twister" there is specific continuity, where P.G. Krolmeister gives Nancy a trip to Japan for solving the case. During the Japan case, Nancy hears of a castle in Germany that scared off a ghost expert (leading to the expert quitting her job). The game after that takes place in a castle in Germany. Tell me that there's not something suspicious going on. Just tell me.
- There could be something going on, or the game-designers could just be having fun building up a broader continuity for these games.
- She did find the treasure he left for her. It just took longer than he thought it would. (And this theory would make the ending even more of a Heartwarming Moment than it already is.)
- Alternately, Kate and Carson Drew are the reincarnations of Frances and Dirk, with Kate retaining Frances's gift for the piano and Carson, making amends for Dirk's crimes by serving justice as a lawyer. The two are perpetual Star-Crossed Lovers, destined to always be parted by the early death of one or the other. This time, at least, they both lived long enough to marry, and to produce a daughter who'd go on to find her parents' lost treasure.
- Could be an invoked example, if the first P.G. was a bit of a crackpot and set up a family trust stipulating that all of his descendants had to have the same initials as him in order to access its funds.
- Ever since WAC came out, a lot of us have been curious what Mr. Harris looks like. He must be pretty fine to have all those teenage girls after him.If youve seen Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, youll remember that Indiana Jones was a dreamy young professor. All of his femalestudents were in love with him. Wouldnt you be, if your teacher looked like this?And of course, Indiana Jones is played by Harrison Ford. I think Mr. Harris was an inside joke reference to Indy that HER snuck in.Conclusion: this is what Mr. Harris looks like.
Even if that game wasn't your preferred Nancy Drew canon, there's no reason to believe that she ever did lose any more weight, since it was seemingly impossible. That makes it very appealing to date somebody who not only doesn't want you to try losing more weight, but actively encourages you to pig out, while complimenting your good looks even more when you do get fat.
