MobileRead Winter Contest: Discussion

Hi everyone. The MobileRead Winter 2012 Contest is now live! The first episodes have been posted in the Announcements Forum (in this thread). The story thread has been locked to permit easy reading/reviewing of episodes as the suspense builds.

This thread is for readers to post questions, beg for hints, flaunt their own theories, etc.

Also, since we were a bit rushed for time trying to launch on Christmas Day we were unable to line up translators for the entire story. Members for whom English is not their first language, or who are having trouble understanding any parts of the story, are encouraged to post their questions here, where bilingual or multilingual MR members can provide explanations. Let's all jump in and have a fun time together!

Yes - please - if you are fluent in a non-English language and can help out by posting "footnotes" here to clarify stuff that you know folks might have trouble understanding - PLEASE post a suitable translation/substitute phrase here!

Can we just make comments here about the story? I'd like to say that dreams is totally in character and I think Mr. Dribs did it. But that isn't my official vote, of course. Just that he's a very suspicious character.

Yes, this is the place to do it. And you may be on to something about the doctor. He always looks a bit undead to me.

Clearly, the chicken is the most likely to commit this heinous crime. I say we throw him in the pot and stew him up now before he commits the murder. Eat one chicken, save a real life.

Get serious, he's a CHICKEN. He's afraid of EVERYTHING. Like most chickens. So I don't think he'd have the guts to do it. Yeah, sure, fret and threats maybe, but he's a CHICKEN!

'Bout the Episode 2,

Spoiler:

What did dreams see?

1. Did she see Alex doing something to/with Nate, who went to mail a letter?
2. Or vice versa?
3. Did pdurrant and WT Sharpe have fight with pooh and threw him out the window?
4. Or vice versa?

Where are the heavy duty scissors?

1. Someone took them?
2. Who? Nate? pdurrant ? WT Sharpe? pooh?

Great contest, although as I'm truly hopeless at figuring out whodunnits and plot twists are only obvious when they are signposted with flashing lights, I'll just have to have complete stab in the dark (in the library with the scissors obviously).
