I've been reading and re-reading the first three chapters again and again, and I really like the story already. I can see all the suspects as possible murderers, and from the descriptions of the atmosphere it surprises me that murders don't happen more often...

I have just a few questions about the story that I would like to ask the author, since I feel that they concern the basis of the problem:
-About the atmosphere of the room; according to the story,
Quote:
(...) it's so thick that someone could get murdered in this room and no one would notice.
Can this be taken literally? I.e., would it have been possible for e.g. HarryT or Dale or even dreams to sneak out of the room without no one else noticing it?
-If one of the suspects could get out of the room without being noticed, could (s)he go anywhere without being seen? I.e., were the moderators in the library the only witnesses in the entire house, so that once you get out of the library unseen, would it be easy to perform funny-business e.g. on the roof and not being seen?
-Is it necessarry with tools to make the clean cut found on the cord used by the victim? We don't need to mention names, but one of the suspects is a mouse, and could probobly use his teeth?
-About the ukulele wire; is it necessary to use tools to cut it? WT sharpe says:
Quote:
"Sure - help yourself. Do you need me to cut it for you?"
Are there any sharp cutting tools elsewhere in the house, or is he talking about using dreams' scisors?

Why yes! When Dr. Drib starts puffing on that old pipe of his - clouds of smoke fill the room!

Ohh .... anyone could sneak in & out of the room - and those mods are certainly a sneaky bunch .... with all that commotion that dreams was making ....


-Is it necessarry with tools to make the clean cut found on the cord used by the victim? We don't need to mention names, but one of the suspects is a mouse, and could probobly use his teeth?

Can't tell you .... yet ... keep reading ...


Oh my - such a close reader! A devoted fan!
See my responses above for clues!

Keep reading .... so much more to be revealed!

I don't think a mouse would make a clean cut, the mouse in my house gnaws - and leaves jagged edges.
So why am I giving away my ideas .....

Had another thought - maybe the teeth of a Grand Mouse

Technically, we only have your word for that, pdurrant. You're still on top of my list of suspects. Anyone who prefer their punch green must become the prime suspect for anything

Is there a set time of day by which the next exciting chapter of the whodunit will be posted to the board each day? Just curious what is going to happen next and whom it's going to happen to. I can't see pdurrant being able to bite through the Christmas lights wires. It would probably be enough to fry his furry little body if he tried it.

Agatha seems to be posting the next episode sometime in the afternoon, GMT. No doubt she has family commitments at this time of year, like most of us.

No doubt you are correct. I was just curious if there was a particular time when updates were expected. I like these holiday puzzle stories.

Wondering how many will be left by the end... that should narrow the field down if it turns into "Ten Little Indians".

I like chicken and all, but that's a pretty morbid way to go when you're not just any chicken. Of course, let's not be too hasty. Could be that pooh is guilty and he did the whole microwave thing as a setup. But gads. He's a chicken. I'm not sure he'd be that devious to one of his own...

Yeah, but ask what happens if you corner a chicken.

Ok, most likely you'll get a fluffy explosion and spit feathers for the next few hours, but sometimes the chicken is going to make kebab of you
