Finally, the humans had truly learned how to fight - keep the lunges and slashes coming fast, one after another, flanking from both sides. "Ahaha! This is the kind of duel that Witches live for!"

A series of high swings from rvc113:

As the attacks came faster and faster, the Witch's ripostes grew frenetic, as she shouted each Red Truth with manic glee. Next came Aziraphael:

The boy!

Since the Boy had moved, the problem was now open to all. The Witch took a deep breath and prepared for an attack from either side of the table.

Dear SeaCal... STOP POSTING BEFORE ME ALL THE TIME.

Ok, next piece of info.
We know that Mrs. Cox is a pencil, a pencil was used in the opening of the door, the door was opened while locked, and that the pencil never touched the lock.

This leads to a couple of possibilities.
Mrs Cox could've been used as a hinge pin, which is unlikely because the hinges are placed on the interior of the door, the opposite side of the locking mechanism.

The more probable situation is that Mrs Cox is a stub of a pencil and was placed in the recess for the latch and prevented the latch from closing properly. This allows the door to be locked (insofar as the handle cannot turn) and still allow the door to be opened. Upon stealing the ribbon the thief simply removes the pencil stub from the latch recess and closes the door behind him/her.

(It seems that next time I'm going to have to scramble the seating! Which was always the plan, by the way.)

Spoiler for SeaCalMaster eliminates some possible tricks


TheChad proposed a plan of attack, but would anybody take it up? Was it accurate, or merely another misstep? The boy wouldn't use it; he was still fixated on the culprit's psychology for some reason.

Spoiler for The boy strikes again!

Usually. But not always.
