Protecting "Sweeney Todd" and the notebook

We are of course not 100% certain that the therapist's patient is Sweeney Todd. However, if he turns out to indeed be the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, which I'm sure you'll agree is a Name To Run Away From Really Fast, then I think we're taking the wrong approach.

We are trying to protect several people, most notably the therapist, from getting in danger. What we are forgetting though, is that "Sweeney" is a fictite as well, albeit, unlike the others, a Villain Protagonist. This means he has to be kept out of danger himself, or we might not be able to send him back. Since we are not able to contact him (he may have fled and may be on the run), I think we should put Holmes and Poirot on the case. They may be able to track him down if they join forces.

And about the notebook: Although I'm sure it will reveal a lot about the patient, I think "Sweeney" is using a fake name, so we won't find his name in the notebook.

Also, as you may have noticed, I'm new here, and I hope I'm not sounding like a Know-Nothing Know-It-All, but these are just my thoughts on this case :ugeek:

I counted several tropes mentioned.

*Slap, slap, slap*

Take a drink for each one.

Suspicion at this point is that the patient is indeed Todd, as evidence suggests. Also, due to a slip in the therapist's posts where she gave what could be his initials (or in this case, the initials of the fake name) we believe he is using his true name, which, as I am not very knowledgeable on his story, I forgot again.

Second, it seems like the plot is about to drag the detectives over to Boston anyway, so little action on our part will be necessary. For the moment we are playing a reactive role, so we should just wait until something develops further along this plot line.

You seem like you know things around here pretty well, which is impressive for a newcomer. Don't hesitate to post other theories or plans whenever they occur to you. Also, welcome to the forum.

Blast it, never, you ninja'd me. I wanted to slap him...

The therapist used the initials BB, which stand for Benjamin Barker, Sweeney's name before his exile. This may or may not be the name he's using right now.

And the restaurant that the phyciatrist went to was located on Fleet Street.

Ok, so Let Me Get This Straight: If the notebook mentions that BB stands for Benjamin Barker, then cAke will confirm that we've found Sweeney? That would be kind of Todd to me, because all the other characters have been confirmed by social media (either a blog or twitter). It all feels like a Moon Logic Puzzle to me.

As much as it was Trope Overdosed and Just For Pun, I did mean Serious Business with my last post. What do you think will be written in the notebook, and at what point will we be 100% certain that BB is Sweeney Todd?

Probably one or two plot developments from now. It is entirely possible that we will not personally need to go after the notebook, since you would think it would have been moved this time. I do think we will find out more abut it, though. In the next couple of plot developments, Todd should be fully confirmed, and Holmes and Poirot may then arrive. (Though it is possible that the puppet masters may change up the plot after that mistake they made. Depends on how much room for variation they wrote into the original plan)

Now... I believe you are due for more slaps. Drinks all round! *pours green stuff down slendy's throat* Here you go, buddy!

I'm considering dropping the name Benjamin Barker in casual conversation with Ms. Matters. Thoughts?

Hmmmmmm... Perhaps you should type up something and let someone else do it, or post with a different e-mail or name. I don't want her to stop talking to you. You're our best agent in this field.

Good point.

Who wants to volunteer? I can't guarantee she won't see my IP attached to my post. Really all you need to do is drop the name and see how she reacts.
