Holmes has posted with a rather large update:

• He met Poirot, they got on well this time.
• They realised someone was keeping them apart.
• They decided to work together on Poirot's new case.
• This case is Sweeny Todd.
• Holmes' benefactor forbade him from leaving New York and Poirot left without him.
• He just found Cinderella.

Of course, the big info dump happens right before I go to class. Not right.

Holy... I'm not sure I'm up to handle this much information right now... It's already getting late here, and I need to get up at 5AM tomorrow... Oh well... At least Cinderella is found.

I left a comment (awaiting mod cause of the links) that link to Poirot's blog, with the intention that they can still have open communications with one another this way.

I think sending Poirot a message on his website explaining why Holmes' didn't go with him is a good idea.

Instead of being go-betweeners (which hasn't seemed to be working) why don't we just link them to each other? Holmes has a good enough explanation for his inability to meet up, no need for us to be messengers all the time!

Hahah, good! I just saw our many posts between Romeo and Juliet, apologizing for the other and trying to control the situation -- never a good thing in real life, and it didn't pan out there either. :D

Well in that case, however, Romeo had blocked Juliet so it was impossible for her to communicate with him. Thankfully Hercule and Holmes have gotten over THEIR lovers-squabble.

Hey, thanks to Holmes' latest update, we now know why the comic had a picture of Poirot in a mask.

Already saw this coming and posted about it when the bloody guy arrived in the city, but he ignored me, so I reposted the information.

One Degree Of Separation... I think they all will be gathered together after all.

Who I do wonder about, though, are their benefactors (or benefactor). There is too little information even to ask a question - so I'd go for the generic set: who are they, why are they helping them and why sometimes they don't.

I asked Mr. A about the possibility of Echoes around Madison Square Park since Holmes, Poirot AND Cinderella were in the area. But there are LOTS of Starbucks and jewelry stores in the area. Too many to go down there with out a more specific Starbucks location.

Apparently the app works within two miles of the echoes.

We should indeed so that, but I suspect we will be OK regardless of the order we do the things in. I believe we should probably get on sending him the message now so that he can get to work, but let's bring this to the Holmes discussion and discus it there.

Doen't that post contradict the part about parts of their stories leaking through as well? If that's true, why didn't Cinderella's gown disappear?

I can think of multiple reasons. For instance, the magic is connected to the world she came from. It takes the form of a two part spell. The first part actually creates the items, and they are actual, real items with physical makeup and everything. The second part then reverses the first part at midnight, but when Cinderella left her world, that spell was disconnected from her, either because the caster is in the world Cindy left, or because it just doesn't recognize midnight in this world as "midnight". That is just one of many possible explanations.

Based on our interactions with the witch, all magic is nulled out here. So if her dress was due to magically revert to rags, it can no longer do that due to the lack of magic. Also, enough time has passed. She could've acquired a new dress.

I've e-mailed Holmes. I linked him to Joe's video featuring Cinderella. I told him the whole story as to what we are doing and that we really need his help getting a confirmation on Cinderella's description. Hopefully, he'll reply.

Alright. I already gave him that info TWICE in the comments, so hopefully this time he pays attention.

It may just be an example of railroading.
