    Default Kootens and Pickens in disguise...

    Ok, a few things of note...

    The Kootenstoopits and Pickensrooters are in disguise while in the book. The picture in the nomenclature are not accurate.

    The Pickensrooter, who looks like a regular boy fairey with orange hair and stuck out tongue, can be found on pages like 20, 25, 41 and 63. We know it's him because of the rats tail he always has behind him.

    The Pickensrooter, who looks likea normal girl fairey with buttons on her shirt (but not always a sock on her head... hmmmmmm...). She can be found on pages like 2, 22, 59, and 61.

    I think that the multiple appearances of these two means something quite significant. Especially the Pickensrooter who is pointing to the cypher on page 2. I don't think it's a one time deal. My theory is that the presence of the Pickensrooter will always mean there is a cypher nearby. This could also mean that the presence of the Kootenstoopit might mean something as well (such as the presence of an anagram).

    Because they are both on page 41, I think there is something which requires both an anagram and then a cypher. Just a theory, but thought I might add it to the mix.

    I think you meant to call the female fairy with or without the sock a Kootenstoopit.

    I don't understand why you say they are in disguises. (?) I would agree that the Pickensrooter doesn't bear much resemblance to the Pickensrooter in the Nomenclature book, but that may be a result of the supposed age of the book portraying an outdated description. Or for all we know, perhaps the "boy" fairy is really a young Pickensrooter and they get uglier as they get older.

    Regardless, I don't yet see why this might be significant, do you?

    Sorry, you are right about the typo. I mean Kootenstoopits for the girl fairy.

    The story makes it faily obvious that the Kootenstoopits and Pickensrooters are the two fairies we see on page 41 and such, but the pictures themselves are deceptive. (That's all I meant by in disguise.) I do think there is something to the fact that they look different in the NOF book. There is no evidence that fairys change how they look as they age (or age at all for that matter). I'm not disagreeing with you, only pointing out that it's strange. The picture of the Kootenstoopit is everyowehere in the book, and she always looks the same. Why not make her look like that in the book? Same for the Pickensrooter.

    But, keep in mind that is only P12-13, and we don't *know* what's on the other pages. Apparently, the only thing MS wanted us to know is on those 2 pages. But we have to s-t-r-e-t-c-h out minds elsewhere, so why not here, too?

    Ideas on what they may mean:
    Pickensrooter:

    http://www.merriamwebster.com/cgi-bi...ionary&va=pick
    Main Entry: 1pick
    Pronunciation: 'pik
    Function: verb
    Etymology: Middle English piken, partly from (assumed) Old English pIcian (akin to Middle Dutch picken to prick); partly from Middle French piquer to prick -- more at PIKE
    transitive senses
    1 : to pierce, penetrate, or break up with a pointed instrument <picked the hard clay>
    2 a : to remove bit by bit <pick meat from bones> b : to remove covering or adhering matter from <pick the bones>
    3 a : to gather by plucking <pick apples> b : CHOOSE, SELECT <tried to pick the shortest route> <she picked out the most expensive dress> c : to make (one's way) slowly and carefully <picked his way through the rubble>

    One entry found for root.
    Main Entry: 4root
    Pronunciation: 'rüt also 'rut
    Function: intransitive verb

    Kootenstoopits: ( still working on this one, but now I think I know where cooties come from <g>)
    The only token I found was SQUAT!!!
