If the Ninja were pieces of classical music

Jay- An American in Paris, Gershwin This work just screams Jay to me. It's upbeat, crazy, and unpredictable. It's crazy and energetic in the first half, but in the second half, it shows the sweeter and maybe calmer side of Jay. That is, before crescendoing up back into a total freakout again. Its melodies are unforgettable. The taxi horns in the beginning and end add even more to the Jay vibe. This work is definitely not your classical symphony, but it is epic nonetheless, and I can definitely see Jay in this piece.

Lloyd- Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty Ballet The whole ballet is hours long. You don't have to listen to the whole thing. I chose this one for Lloyd because I felt strongly that Lloyd needed a Romantic-era composer like Tchaikovsky. The ballet has a regal, noble feel for it and it says Lloyd to me. This one is a good piece of the ballet to listen to if you only have five minutes to spare. Lloyd is a strong and stable leader with a big heart, and that's what this ballet feels like to me.

Zane- Mozart - Symphony no. 40, in G minor - 1st movement I knew I had to pick something by Mozart for Zane. Mozart just suits him. And if you're a classical musician, you'll know that you have to play Mozart with precision. And that's what Zane is. The movement is centered around a minor key. However, it doesn't sound particularly sad, and I also think that's appropriate for Zane. The melody tends to stay up in the higher end of things, which is just right for Zane. I encourage you to listen to the whole thing. Of course, no piece of music can accurately depict the perfect and precious character that Zane is.

Cole- Gustav Holst - The Planets - Jupiter I went out searching for one that exemplified Kai and I found Cole. The whole movement has a sense of stability. It starts off fast-paced, which isn't really Cole to me, but it makes up for it later. Did I forget to mention the unforgettable melody? It's beautiful. The whole piece is in the lower end of the pitch spectrum which is perfect for the master of earth. Towards the end, it slows down and gives you the sense of stability and responsibility that Cole fosters. It's Cole's perfect piece.

And that's it! Think you know of a piece that better exemplifies one of these ninja? Or know of a work that sounds like one of the ninja I haven't listed here? Comment below!! Good day fangirls and boys, now GOODNIGHT!

Cole has PTSD

I have a theory that in the eleventh season of Ninjago, Cole develops PTSD. In this post, I will give my reasons for believing this. First, I'll define PTSD.


Post-traumatic stress disorder
Also called: PTSD
A disorder in which a person has difficulty recovering after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event.

And I would say Cole (and the rest of the Ninja for that matter) have experienced a terrifying event. Seeing Zane disappear at the hand of a firey humanoid snake sorcerous and being blasted himself into another realm to lose the Travelers Tea due to the Land Bounty (and almost him and all his friends) falling off a cliff, that is terrifying. 

Cole has experienced a terrifying event. But does he show the symptoms of PTSD?


General symptoms include:

  • Re-experiencing the trauma through intrusive distressing recollections of the event, flashbacks, and nightmares.
  • Emotional numbness and avoidance of places, people, and activities that are reminders of the trauma.
  • Increased arousal such as difficulty sleeping and concentrating, feeling jumpy, and being easily irritated and angered.
Also, a symptom of PTSD in children is reenacting the terrifying event through play.

Cole has shown these symptoms:

  • Re-experiencing the trauma through intrusive distressing recollections of the event, flashbacks, and nightmares.Cole had a nightmare of losing the Travelers Tea in the toppling Land Bounty
  • Emotional numbness and avoidance of places, people, and activities that are reminders of the trauma. - Did not show this symptom
  • Increased arousal such as difficulty sleeping and concentrating, feeling jumpy, and being easily irritated and angered. - Cole blew up at the other Ninja after having his dream.
Also, a symptom of PTSD in children is reenacting the terrifying event through play. - Cole put on a puppet show (of sorts) reenacting the story of Zane being blasted into the Never Realm.

Therefore, I can conclude that Cole has PTSD. The only thing that doesn't match up is that PTDS symptoms usually appear months after the event, while Cole's symptoms appeared shortly after the trauma happened.

Thanks for coming along with me!! Good day, fangirls and boys. GOODNIGHT

Information about PTSD came from The Anxiety and Depression Association of America, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and Google.

Many season 11 fanfictions #3

So this one is titled 'Vex.' I kind of like it. I made this one because it touches on the point that Vex may not be all bad. I like villains. 😈

Vex closed the door, then let his fake smile drop back into a scowl.

‘Wretched emperor.’ he thought, as he often did. ‘This is worthless. Why don’t I become the emperor! Everyone knows I’m the one calling the shots!’ 

‘Because you can’t summon ice dragons at will.’ He reminded himself. 

A very exasperated Vex sighed. Ten minutes ago he had actually been in bed. Now he could never get back to sleep. Just this one evening he had convinced himself to retire. Then as he was drifting off, he heard the usual noises in the bedroom next to him of the emperor awaking suddenly from one of his ‘dreams’.

Vex knew he had to go and make sure the ‘emperor’ didn’t realize what these dreams actually were. He got up and saw to it that the emperor thought it nothing, then he left the room. Now here he was, about to have another sleepless night of fitful worrying and planning. Vex turned and paced the corridor.

Ever since that worthless stranger in green had appeared, the ‘emperor’ had started having those worthless dreams. From what Vex had gathered, these dreams were glimpses of his life that he had forgotten. 

These dreams were dangerous.

Always after these visions the emperor acted strangely and spoke harshly to Vex, though he did not know why. When Vex mentioned the green stranger or mentioned the word green at all, a strange look crossed the emperor’s face. Vex hoped it wasn’t recognition. All this made Vex very worried.

What if he put the pieces together? What if he figured out who he was? Vex’s reign would be over!

Now he began to wonder, as he usually did, whether he was doing the right thing. Reflecting back on the day when he first encountered this Zane fellow, he really seemed like a nice man. That was before Vex caused him to lose his memory.

Now Vex felt a twinge of guilt. 

‘If I told him the truth, he would probably kill me.’ Vex thought bitterly. He sighed, thinking. Then he decided: ‘I’ve gone too far. I can’t undo it.’

Then Vex turned and plotted how to get rid of that awful traveler in green. 

And so, at the end, like I always do, I'll give it a one to five star rating. (Even though it's my
own work.) I'll give it four stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

Nya vs. Pixal

A lot of times I like to compare the only two recurring girls on the show: PIXAL and Nya. So I guess I'll just let you look inside my brain a little and see the points I usually touch when comparing these two women.

First of All: Why even have girls?
This is obviously a show aimed majorly at boys. So why have girls? Well, I think there are two different reasons.
      1# To be politically correct
           This generation is really focused on girl power. If the show was all about boys, some people wouldn't consider it politically correct. So they had to add a girl character (Nya) to inject some strong women power into it.
      2# To give the male characters more depth
           What would Jay be without Nya? What would Zane be without Pixal? And these male characters are broken-hearted when their significant other is missing. If you haven't noticed, Zane really really really cares about Pixal. And this gives him more depth as a character. Kai really really really loves Nya, and it gives Kai the big brother vibe that he wouldn't be the same without.

Now to compare the two:

Their attitudes
Both Nya and Pixal have a little bit of sass. I find Pixal's sass a little more appealing than Nya's. Nya just seems rude sometimes. And Pixal does have that innocent vibe to her that Nya doesn't have.

Their Smarts
Both Pixal and Nya are both smart. They always seem to be the one behind the computer, building mech, saving the ninja... To digress a little bit, I feel like Pixal has taken Nya's place. Pixal is now Samurai X, Pixal is now the one left behind when everyone goes on missions, shes the one building the mechs, she's the one saving the ninja now. She's filling Nya's place since Nya left to become the water ninja. And even though I love Pixal, I think I liked Nya in that role better. Nevertheless, they are both highly intelligent.

Their Development as a Character
Let me say one thing right off the bat. Both Nya and Pixal are underdeveloped. Lego, if you're going to add girls into the mix, at least give them some depth! I notice the underdevelopment the most in Nya because she's kinda moved into the main character role. Nya just, isn't interesting. I can only think of one thing that gave some kind of interest and background to her character and that is the whole thing with their parents that happened in season 7. But since she shares that with her brother and her parents came back, I feel like that's not significant. I could name 5+ things about the other ninja that give them depth but only about 2 for Nya. Pixal doesn't have much depth either, but for some reason, that doesn't bother me as much.

Well, thanks for coming along for the ride! Good evening, fellow fangirls and boys, GOODNIGHT!

Many Season 11 Fanfictions #1

Here are the fanfictions you were promised!

Okay, there are parts of these that I'm not quite in love with, but for the most part, I'm really proud of these. I'm going to release them in the order I wrote them. All of these work together, they're supposed to be all one night.

If you haven't seen Ninjago season 11 these won't make sense, but you can still read them anyway. At the end of the fanfiction I'll give the piece a rating of 1-5 stars. (even though they're my own work lol)

This first one is titled

The Emperor

The emperor snapped awake and bolted upright in bed.

He blinked, trying to remember… He had been dreaming. Yes, that was it. Dreaming about a girl. A pretty girl with green eyes and white skin. Her hair was… silver. And she was crying, she had been dreaming too. About something, no, someone that had been lost.
Why had he awoken at this? Nothing frightening had occurred. It was as if she tried to wake him… but she had never looked at him. Maybe he had awoken himself because of this pretty girl in his dream. But why? Though the emperor was sure he had never seen this girl anywhere, something about her was familiar. For some strange reason, he wanted to help her; help her find the thing... or person... that was lost.

The bedroom door creaked open. “Are you alright emperor?” Came the oily voice of his advisor, Vex.

The emperor shot Vex a look and hated him with everything in him. Then he relented and shook his head. Why had he felt that way about Vex? He had never felt that way before about his trusted advisor. It was like he had become someone else for a minute. But he was not someone else! He was the Ice Emperor. And Vex was his most trusted friend and companion. What is wrong with me? the emperor thought.

“My apologies, but I heard noise in your bedroom and felt it my duty to check on you.” Vex crossed to the bed. “What troubles my emperor tonight? You look worried.” 

“I have had a troubling… dream”

“Again?” Vex cried, not sounding surprised but annoyed. Then he softened. “Your majesty must remember: they are only dreams” Vex sighed, sounding more like his oily self. “It will be best for you to forget that dream and get a good night’s rest before morning. We still have that stranger in green to deal with.” Vex walked over to the door and closed it with “Goodnight, my emperor.” 

The emperor lay back down. He sat there a moment thinking. Then he closed his eyes, trying to remember… 

...and THE END to the poor excuse for a fanfiction piece.

I'll give this one a rating of three out of five stars ⭐⭐⭐ ☆☆ because this one's not really my favorite.

Well, good day fangirls and boys, GOODNIGHT!

Many Season 11 Fanfictions #2

Here are the fanfictions you were promised!

This one is one of my favorites. Enjoy! 

Akita's Fury

Akita jolted awake and almost gave a cry. She was glad she had not, for her new friend, Lloyd, was still sleeping not 5 feet from her. Her brother… her whole village had been right there, then suddenly ripped from her as the emperor ordered his ice dragon to freeze them all. The picture of her brother looking up, eyes wide and scared; the picture of him just before he was destroyed, lingered vividly in her mind’s eye.

Her brother, Kataru, the thought of him hurt her heart. He was more than a brother, he was her best friend. He had only just discovered his animal form too. Her eyes brimmed with tears. 

The emperor.

She shook for anger. Reliving the moment when she had lost everything added wood, no, gasoline, to the wildfire of anger now burning inside her. She confirmed her vow to never rest, never be at peace, until her village was avenged. 

She would never stop until the Ice Emperor was dead.

Tears spilled from her eyes and froze with the snow. Akita hastily glanced around to see if anyone had noticed, embarrassed that anyone should see her so weak as to cry. But she saw only Lloyd.

What did Lloyd think of her quest? When she had told him of it, he seemed not to mind, but Akita wondered if that was the truth. She crawled over to look more closely at Lloyd. She studied his sleeping face. His round jaw, large eyes, strong eyebrows, and pointed nose. The lips that so willingly told her his life story, the hands that had saved her life, the eyes that when open, shone with optimism and pride. 

‘No’, she thought. ‘He will never let me carry out my quest. I know it.’

But there was something noble in that. He was so honorable, so friendly, so honest. He was in many ways… beautiful. ‘Is this love?’

She had heard of girls in her village who were ‘in love’. Giggling dreamy-eyed gossips who blushed and batted their eyes. But this was much different. 

But he is going to prevent me from carrying out my mission. He is too noble. 

It was a desicion. Whom did she love more? Lloyd, or avenging her brother? She contemplated this for a while, but then the old fire returned.

“I am sorry Lloyd. But if you prevent me from taking my revenge, you will fall with the emperor.”

Akita is so cool. I will give this one a rating of 5 out of 5 stars :⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Good day, fangirls and boys, GOODNIGHT!

Pixal Art

Just look at the wondrous beauty of art. I'm so proud of myself sqEEe

I do think Pixal's body type is a little bit different than what I drew but eh, that's just how it turned out.
Good day fangirls and boys, GOODNIGHT

Idea and Upcoming Posts

I just had this awesome idea for like a fanfiction or head-canon about the ninja couples arguing. Like Jay and Nya having an argument over nothing, and then contrasting that with an argument Zane and Pixal would have, which would probably be over something more serious, but with a whole bunch of fancy words. They'd obviously be having a disagreement but they would both be kind and courteous and use big words, it would just be funny.

Maybe I'll write a short fan-fiction on that one day 😜

Upcoming Posts

In the next few days, I will be posting my fan-fictions that I made about season 11, I just have to fix them up. Believe me. They need fixing. So be expecting those.

I just created a BEAUTIFUL drawing of Pixal, and I think it's ready to share with the world. I really surprised myself with this drawing and I'm excited for you to see it!

I'm also thinking of drawing myself, in Zane's classic ninja robes of course, and posting that so...

Good day fangirls and boys, GOODNIGHT!

My Ninjago Status

The status of my obsession

So here I'll just be informing you all of what my obsession is like currently.

How Long Have I Been Watching?
My brothers infatuated me with this kids show in the year 2017. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those old veterans that are like 'I've been watching this show since 2011.' If you're one of those people, I envy you.

Whats My Favorite Character?
Zane. Most definitely Zane. I don't know exactly what it is about him, but he's just so fascinating I guess. He's smart, perfect (also physically impossible) and sweet. He definitely looks sweet in this picture. lol
EEEEE just seeing that face makes me happy. 😊😊😊😊😊

How Many Seasons Have I Seen?
I am proud to say I have seen all seasons and episodes of LEGO Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu, seasons 1-11. So proud of myself lol. I guess the next question is...

What's My Favorite Season
For me, its impossible to pick just one. Season 1 is AMAZING, season 10 is AMAZING, and season 11 is ALSO AMAZING. If I had to pick just one, it would be Season 1.

What Is My Favorite Ship?
Pixane. THEY'RE SO STINKING CUTE. Pixal and Zane were literally made for one another. FiGHT MeEEeHh. I also support Jaya all the way, and Kailor is cute too. (I think that's their ship name)

Do I Write Fanfiction?
Yes. And guess what. It's either about Zane or Pixane.

Thank you for (possibly wasting your time) reading this and good day fangirls and boys, GOODNIGHT!

My First Blog Post

My First Post

Hi! This is FrostedFangirl and I'm going to take this opportunity to let you know that I have no clue what I'm doing. Just a random person in the world who decided to start a blog. So give me a little grace here.

What you can expect
I plan to post about everything Ninjago, from theories to rants, I'll do it all. About pace, I'll probably do two posts a week. Now this could change, so if I think a change in pace is needed I'll post about it.

Final thoughts
I may post about other topics too. I hope this blog turns out to be a lot of fun :) Have a wonderful day, fangirls and boys. GOODNIGHT
