Ok, Poirot lost me.
Please somebody update the timeline for me. I can't bring myself to parse the important points out of it. :?

I just asked if the old couple saw anyone on their wanderings around the house.

I feel that will be our break in the case.

Just reported the spam troll and saw one of the reasons you can put for reporting someone is that the post is "off topic". Thanks god no one uses that or we'd all be banned.

And we have a new post. http://belgianamongtheenglish.wordpress.com/2012/10/07/105/

So, the boy at the school was the illegitimate child of Pierre and Valerie. Poirot suspects Valerie, though she has gone missing. Personally, I suspect Hugo and Elise just as much, though Elise does have a fairly tight alibi.

So, all in all, I'm thinking Hugo. Kills Pierre for having a child with Valerie, and then kills Valerie for choosing Pierre.

OK, so I'm about up to date with this mystery too. Any chance that Hugo is the culprit is slipping away fast. I'm pretty sure Poirot's comments are telling us to focus elsewhere. I would say more of the new theories I have, but I gotta deal with Don and the riddle.

Enormous wall of text on Poirots blog. Valerie did it, she was in league with his wife and now she may be dead.

Fine, as long as it's not that green stuff again.

Besides, you try finding a better description for that post.

A vibrant and lengthy description of an event.

Not like this post at all.

Yay, it looks like this is another point for the hivemind! We all totally had this thing figured out from day one of the case, didn't we? Good job guys! *high fives all 'round* :D

Am I the only one who thinks that these cases they're running are just as connected to the plot as the previous cases?

We all think they're connected. Since you know this whole game is based on seemingly unconnected events being connected

I like plots like that. Does it have a name?

...Let me rephrase that.

Any ideas on *how* they're connected? I feel like it's cliche to say "MORIARTY" every time something shady comes up in the Detectives plotline, but it's my best answer so far.

...Hm. I think we might have a new POI on our hands. Can we think of anyone outside the Holmes and Poirot verses who'd be mistaken for Moriarty from the actions we've seen our UPOI take?

I've brought this up a few times, I think there's someone/ a group that has knowledge of the breaking of the wall and the fictites and are manipulating the charcters that have crossed.

So you think maybe we have some kind od a Shadow Archetype group going on? Like an ANTI-WTF community? Possibly staffed by Fictional incarnations of ourselves... :shock:
