Title and Blurb Game

Cursed Memories

Siblings Winnow and Wylon had it pretty good. Quiet and artistic Winnow ran the camera equipment and edited the footage, while her brother the spitfire comedian enthusiast drew the viewers in with his natural showstopping personality. They worked as well as they bickered, whether it was about their next shoot location or what restaurant served the best sandwiches.

They chased ghosts in abandoned towns and paranormal sightings in overgrown and crumbling asylums. They didn’t expect to come across a filthy young lady without a lick of memory to explain how she ended up half dead along the old, forgotten train tracks. The investigative siblings decided to work alongside law enforcement and psychologists to help find the secrets behind their new charge and her cursed memories.

Fall of [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] [name_u]Frost[/name_u]

[name_f]Fiona[/name_f] [name_u]Frost[/name_u], despite her name, was a very friendly person. Well-liked in her hometown of Greylea, she appeared to have no enemies.
But everyone has enemies. It’s a truth of the world that [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] just didn’t seem to understand. [name_u]Or[/name_u] maybe she did, and simply pretended to be friends with those who hated her.
She was probably not very friendly with the people who were with her when she was pushed into the lake. The only problem is that none of the five people can agree on which person they saw push her.
The fatal fall of [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] [name_u]Frost[/name_u] is shrouded in secrets, but it brings just as many to the surface…

The [name_f]Sapphire[/name_f] Glass
Once, long ago, [name_f]Queen[/name_f] [name_f]Hortensia[/name_f] reigned. Her rule lasted for generations, through many wars, all of which her kingdom won. When she died, the entire kingdom went into mourning, for their beloved queen had passed. Except, she wasn’t loved by everyone.
Years had passed when [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f] was born. She was the heir, the chosen one. The great-granddaughter of [name_f]Queen[/name_f] [name_f]Hortensia[/name_f]. Her mother had been in exile, so when [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f] moved into the palace, it was unexplored to her. Secrets around every dusty corner. Skeletons in every dark closet. But what [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f] found most curious was the blue mirror, stashed away in the Queen’s old bedchamber. The glass, that when you looked in, showed nothing back.
As the coronation drew near, Morwenna’s crowning growing closer, the truth began to pile up. The lies began to flow free, and [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f] could only tie all of the wins and losses her great-grandmother had experienced to the same mirror. The sapphire glass.
The looking-glass that could very well find [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f] dead.

Booked For Broke
(Be warned, this is a bit of a stretch)

Words have many meanings. They’re powerful things, but what if there was a world in which the most powerful weapon a person could have was a dictionary?
Twin sisters [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] think they’ve stumbled into that very world. [name_f]Every[/name_f] word they can think of has power – it feels like a very weird sort of Scrabble game, almost – and the written word holds incredible amounts of it.
The problem is, this world survives off words written on paper, which happens to be very easy to destroy. And if someone found a way to destroy every book in Veritania, the world would simply collapse.
[name_f]Pearl[/name_f] and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] have walked into an adventure much like some of their favourite books, with a slight catch. Their own fate, as well as the world around them, is held within the pages that make up this strange reality. And should they disappear, the twins will vanish with them.

Yeah, so that makes precisely no sense! But there you go. And sticking with the jewel theme:

Jeweled Jeopardy

It’s hidden in plain sight. [name_m]Locker[/name_m] number 651 in the Brussels Midi train station. The combination’s there too, if you know where to look. The missing room- or rather, where to find it- is just there for the taking.

For [name_m]Peter[/name_m] Vladimirovna, the mission is personal. He is the descendent of the one and only [name_m]Peter[/name_m] the Great, the emperor who crafted the [name_f]Amber[/name_f] Room. It was supposed to be an instrument of peace, all six hundred square feet of glittering panelling and jeweled decadence. After the Germans stole and dismantled the room, it disappeared into air thinner than that hiding the lost Romanov family of which [name_m]Peter[/name_m] is a part. That is, until rumor got back to [name_f]Russia[/name_f] about Brussels and locker number 651. This is Peter’s chance to achieve the mission he was born for: taking back the Russian throne.

However, things are never as they seem. Peter’s mission is dangerous, and it turns out that he isn’t the only one who wants the [name_f]Amber[/name_f] Room, he isn’t the only one who knows where to find it, and worst of all, he isn’t the only one who wants to sit on the throne of [name_f]Russia[/name_f]. Now, there’s a target on his back and a race to the secrets of the train station. If he gets there first, he’ll restore his ancestors’ legacies and have a certain bid for the crown. If he doesn’t, it’s not just his future that’s in jeopardy; it’s his life.

In The Late [name_u]Night[/name_u]

Middle child [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] isn’t particularly special at all, it seems. Her brother [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] is halfway through all the things [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] doesn’t understand that will lead to him becoming a doctor one day, her older sister [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] is top of the class in practically every subject and the six-year-old twins are six years old, and therefore loved by everyone they meet, apparently.
She’s not exactly bitter about the fact that everything she does is viewed as pointless in her parents’ eyes, or how they don’t really seem to think that what she likes to do is worth anything, but it’s not like it doesn’t hurt sometimes.
And then everything changes.
When [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] disappears in the middle of the night, [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] finds herself pushed even further into the background, but that seems to be a good thing. Because only in being invisible can she find a way to rescue her little sister.
Let the clock strike twelve, and let yourself disappear. It’s not exactly [name_f]Cinderella[/name_f], but [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] is going to take anything she can get at this point.

The Unseen Trilogy

When [name_f]Bella[/name_f] auditioned for the television show that was based off the book series, The Unseen Trilogy. Never in her wildest dreams did she think that the television show would rack up so many viewers and fans. [name_f]Nor[/name_f] did she think that it would go on to have a movie, let alone it’s own trilogy. But what [name_f]Bella[/name_f] didn’t put into account was that, as soon as she started the filming process for the show, paranormal activity started happen within her life.

She never thought that her life would flip from good to bad so fast. It was a change she was not excited about. The paranormal activity within her life got so bad to the point that she had to leave the show after one of the directors died when a whole set fell on him unexpectedly. [name_f]Bella[/name_f], then, decided to research The Unseen Trilogy book series. After doing so much research, she discovered that anyone who was the lead in the live action adaptions of the book series would inevitably become cursed.

What was [name_f]Bella[/name_f] to do now? [name_f]Live[/name_f] with this curse that was seemingly messing with her career? This truly was a unseen nightmare.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] Letters For A Girl Named [name_u]Sage[/name_u]

When [name_f]Ella[/name_f] breaks the only rule her parents have ever really enforced, to never enter her older sister’s bedroom, it’s to discover a box filled with letters. The box itself is covered in little hearts, and [name_f]Ella[/name_f] is naturally curious. [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] was fourteen when she disappeared, three years ago. [name_f]Ella[/name_f] was only eight, meaning she didn’t know that many of her sister’s secrets.
Yet here she is, suddenly in position of two of Chloe’s biggest secrets. One, that she knew what was going to happen to her. And two, that she was writing love letters to a girl.
[name_f]Chloe[/name_f] never sent her letters, and [name_f]Ella[/name_f] can see why. She was scared that [name_u]Sage[/name_u] wouldn’t like her back, that [name_u]Sage[/name_u] would hate her. But from what Ella’s gleaned from the letters, it doesn’t sound like that would be what happened.
But it never could. And while [name_f]Ella[/name_f] tries to put together the story of what happened to [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] three years ago, she has to wonder. If she could carry out the wish in Chloe’s final letter to [name_u]Sage[/name_u], what would the girl who hates any mention of [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] [name_m]Johnson[/name_m] say about the letters?

[name_u]Mallory[/name_u] [name_m]Watson[/name_m], contrary to popular belief at her school, doesn’t actually resent having a genius for an older sister. [name_f]Clover[/name_f] is the best sister she could have asked for, and it’s even cooler when she tells [name_u]Mallory[/name_u] about her latest experiments.
Thing is, while [name_f]Clover[/name_f] lives up to her name in terms of how insanely lucky she is half the time, [name_u]Mallory[/name_u] also seems to live up to her name. Since it means ‘unfortunate’, is it much of a surprise that when she accidentally knocks one bottle over during a school trip to the labs [name_f]Clover[/name_f] works at it manages to not only catapult herself through time but half her classmates as well?
It falls to [name_u]Mallory[/name_u] and [name_f]Clover[/name_f] to work out how to save everyone else, made only slightly harder by the fact that [name_u]Mallory[/name_u] hasn’t exactly ended up in the most technological time period.

Code: RADAR

Since the start of the year, [name_m]Faraday[/name_m] Secondary School has been plagued with strange mysteries, ranging from boxes of books vanishing without a trace to fires popping up out of seemingly nowhere. It’s nothing the teachers can’t handle at first, but it doesn’t take long to get out of hand.
The disappearances start in [name_u]November[/name_u]. The missing student’s desk is always marked with one of four words, and the word is very predictable. ‘Radio’, ‘detection’, ‘and’ and ‘ranging’.
Still, the school doesn’t close. Students keep vanishing, but the teachers are adamant that they have things under control.
That lasts until [name_u]February[/name_u].
That’s when the first body shows up. And that’s finally when some students give up with waiting for the teachers to sort things out. If they don’t want more of their fellow students to die, then they’ll have to solve the case themselves.
The code might be predictable, but is anything else about the case as cut-and-dry as how the kidnapper gets their nickname?
