But there's not a whole lot else to say on that (at least not without spoilers, and I'm not sure I'm even allowed to say what we were working on), so let's change the subject. We've been thinking about the new Kingdom Hearts game that's in the works, and every time they hint at a new world being revealed, we get antsy for a couple of reasons. First, one of the best things to do in Kingdom Hearts is to play it without any idea of what worlds are going to be in it, so you can be pleasantly surprised to see where Sora (or whoever is the main character of that particular game) goes. Second, and more pettily, we really don't want them to go to Arendelle. Is that how it's spelled? I don't know. Who cares.
So we like to look at Kingdom Hearts trends and try to tell ourselves that Tetsuya Nomura shares our tastes and so would not include Arendelle, unless there's a lot of pressure from Disney and/or consumers. For example, the Port Royale stuff in Kingdom Hearts II seemed kind of out of place and like it was only there because Pirates of the Caribbean was so ridiculously popular they felt like they had to include it. Or maybe Disney said they had to, and back then Kingdom Hearts wasn't as huge so it couldn't make any demands. (This is all speculation, so don't quote me on any of this.)
Then I started looking at it from Sora's point of view. Sora would probably love Frozen, but I think I'm okay with that, because the reason for that is that Sora loves everything. But then (I like to think) Riku would not love Frozen, so he would say to Sora, "You actually like that movie?" and Sora would be like, "...No!" But he'd still secretly like it.
And for some reason, that thought amuses me.
Today I'm thankful for meeting our work quota despite setbacks, the tasty chocolate muffins we got from Bread Day, Sarah reminding us that we earned a free sheet of nail wraps so we could ask her to get the one we wanted before it went away forever ('tis the season of changing available designs), getting to learn some neat things about the book we're working on, and being done with work for the day.
