“The Walking Blog”: Why I Believe The Season 3 Protagionist Will Not Be Clementine

The Walking Blog

Welcome to the first post on “The Walking Blog”!

If you have either played The Walking Dead Season 1 and 2 or watched a YouTuber’s play through of it, you’ll know that the primary element of this series is a little girl named Clementine. She was not the protagonist of the first season; it was Lee:

Leemna

But Lee’s goal (and ours) was to keep young Clementine safe in a world so damaged by the zombie apocalypse, and we did just that.

Clementine’s story was definitely a good one. She met a whole bunch of people who truly changed her life, some for the better and some … well, let’s not get into that.

Season1 S21 S2

The person who helped her along the way the most was definitely Lee. He taught her how to shoot a gun for the very first time; which is a mandatory skill to have in the apocalypse and he dedicated his life, his very last dying breath to keep her as safe as possible. Lee was her mentor, her father figured she looked up to and best of all, her friend.

But I believe that her story is now over.
It has been confirmed that Season 3 is in the process of being made as we speak; or as I type and as you read. But I, personally believe, that the protagonist for this season, will not be Clementine and for the following reasons:

  • At the end of Season 2, Clementine’s story branched off into too many possibilities
  • It would be extremely difficult for Telltale to pick up where they left off because the choices lead off into completely different plots/scenarios and involve different characters and settings

(Yes, I made this chart)

  • No, we don’t know what’s going to remain of Clementine’s time, here in The Walking Dead world but I believe it best to leave her story where it is with the main headline being: cliff-hanger

While I would love to be there with Clementine until the true end of her journey, it’d be difficult and truthfully, unnecessary for Telltale games to do so.

1st Blogging Update of 2015!

It’s been 19 days into 2015, therefore, I am 19 days late in saying, “Happy New Year!” to all my followers. Thank you so much for staying put, even though I’ve been neglecting my blogs. Just a few changes for this year’s blogging activities. I will be starting a couple of new “segments” or “topics” that will focus specifically on my opinions towards certain issues/conflicts. Here are a few I’m very excited to introduce:

1) The Walking Blog
This one focuses on The Walking Dead video game created by Telltale Games. While I am a big fan of the franchise, I haven’t been able to watch the AMC’s The Walking Dead show which I heard is also great.

2) Painter’s Portfolio
This one focuses on a selection of fantastic paintings I’ll come across, where I will give my critiques and personal opinions.

3) BooksR4U
A.K.A. “Books Reviewed For You”, which will feature a whole bunch of popular books reviewed by myself, along with personal recommendations and images.

I’m working on my 1st segment on “The Walking Blog” right now so I hope you guys stay tuned in!

~ “Such Wicked Intent” by Kenneth Oppel Book Review ~

Hello, everyone! :) I haven’t been blogging in a while and I’m sorry about that (because I know that you miss my posts … aha, probably not). But please enjoy this review of Kenneth Oppel’s second novel in “The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein” series, “Such Wicked Intent”!

Even though I haven’t yet read the first book in the series, “This Dark Endeavour”, “Such Wicked Intent” was explained very well and was simple to understand, even if you didn’t have much background knowledge. In the book, Kenneth explains that the main character, Victor, had a twin brother named Konrad who had become extremely ill. Victor, in the previous book, had discovered a “Dark Library” and found books with so-called recipes for cures that would (hopefully) rid his brother of his disease. Did it work? Despite sacrificing two fingers on his right hand on the quest to find the ingredients in the medicine, Victor had failed to cure his brother. But there was more yet to come.

In “Such Wicked Intent”, the story starts off with Victor and his castle servants burning all the books in the “Dark Library” as a promise that he will never trust the dark books which were lies and false guarantees. But when Victor, along with his friend, Henry and Konrad’s beloved lover, Elizabeth (whom of which Victor may or may not have feelings for), discover an even deeper secret that may bring Victor’s brother back, they find out that they may have bit off more than they can chew.

Without spoiling this book, I’ll try to give a some-what brief “What would I rate this book?” and “Why?”. Here goes:

From the moment I started this book, it was nearly impossible to put down. “Such Wicked Intent” is so full of suspense, mystery and had a very ghostly, supernatural feel to it. It’s so realistic, yet so unrealistic. The characters seem so real and so defined, while the story itself is hard to believe, but easy to picture. Kenneth Oppel does a tremendous job of describing the settings, the characters and est of all, the feelings. There is so much emotion put into this, emotions expressing death, life, re-birth, love, longings, anger, sadness, loneliness and best of all, fear. Victor, Henry, Elizabeth and Konrad become involved in some of the most intense battles I’ve ever read about. My rate for this book? 5 stars/5stars: *****! :) Well done, Kenneth Oppel!

Sound interesting? Pick up a copy of “This Dark Endeavour” or “Such Wicked Intent”, today! Happy reading, everyone! :D

Leonid Afremov has done it once again! He never fails to disappoint, as my favourite oil painter. This painting is so colourful and lively, even though the setting is clearly set at night and appears to be raining. Wonderful masterpiece!

~ Frozen (the Disney movie) Review! ~

~ Frozen (the Disney movie) Review! ~

Meet Anna, a brave, bold, curious and absolutely fearless young lady! You see, the land of Erindale has been trapped underneath a spell of eternal winter. The only one who has the power to stop it is Anna’s sister, Elsa, who has disappeared on the night she became the official Snow Queen. As Anna looks for Elsa, she crosses paths with Kristoff, a cautious, determined and caring guy who decides to join Anna on her quest. As they carry on with their mission, they meet another man, well, er, snow-man, named Olaf. Olaf is funny, silly and is a very unique character! Will they all manage to save Erindale from the curse of frozen land? Watch Frozen to find out!

I really liked Frozen because it wasn’t your average love story. Frozen had some emotional factors to it, but the story was not based on a character’s feelings or love towards another character. Frozen was also very funny! I must applaud them for the making of Olaf, who is, definitely, my favourite character. The musical numbers were fantastic! My favourite song out of all of them was definitely Let it Go. The scene when Elsa made her ice castle was just mesmerizing! Great graphics and amazing effects all resulted in the awesome movie called: Frozen!

~ Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom [by Susin Nielsen] Book Review! ~

~ Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom [by Susin Nielsen] Book Review! ~

Susin Nielsen has once again failed to disappoint me with this amazing novel! I will get to my opinions and thoughts on this book, right after a brief summary:

Violet Gustafson, a 12 year old girl, is left with her mother, Ingrid, and her younger 5 year old sister, Rosie after her somewhat famous director father, Ian is caught with another woman: a young actress named Jennica. Violet’s dad decides to leave the Violet, Ingrid and Rosie for Jennica and starts his own family. Due to financial issues, Violet’s side of the family is now poorer than ever, while Ian and Jennica are basically bathing in their wealth. As Violet’s mom struggles to find another man, Violet soon finds out that if she doesn’t take matters into her own hands, the results could mean another betraying and jerk-face father. Violet, along with her bff, Phoebe decide that the perfect man for Ingrid must be none other than George Clooney himself! So, can they pull off the perfect plan? Read ‘Dear George Clooney: Please Marry My Mom’ by Susin Nielsen to find out!

Susin Nielsen really does a great job of describing and clarifying the personality of all her characters. You’re able to clearly identify that:
~ Violet is a determined [stops-at-nothing], motivated, strategic, sneaky and smart pre-teen, who does what she has to do (and what she doesn’t have to to do!), without hesitations.
~ Ingrid is an emotional, hard-working, selfless single mother struggling to find herself a husband and a caring father for her two girls.
~ Rosie is a curious, trusting, honest and out-going little optimist.
~ Ian is a wealthy man who is Violet’s eyes: an ex-dad, a jerk and a cheater, in Ingrid’s eyes: an ex-husband, player and selfish man and in Rosie’s eyes: a faraway dad.
~ Jennica is a self-centered, somewhat caring, fashionista who tries to get along with Violet and Rosie, even though Violet has an attitude that you can’t ignore!
I really loved this book because the plot was as realistic as the characters. Susin combined the right amount of humor, emotion and disbelief to create ‘Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom’!
