    Default Faeries Five Finger Fun Factory

    WITH NAME IN HAND THE FAERIES KNOW

    In the spirit of lyricalash, I am not going to give specific solutions of what I have found. Dont worry my motives are not quite the same as my decoded message looks mostly like doth poop right now and would only discourage you from giving me your hall of fame vote. I really dont want to spoil the mix by introducing a bad interpretation at this point. And well, honestly, I dont like what I have figured out and think it in itself is wrong. Lets just say my contribution is not half, but not whole. When and if I can untwist my code to make more sense before one of you brilliant twelevers, I will post it here (shameless compliment, again, looking for votes here).

    Notice how the fairies are pointing, pulling each others hair, climbing over borders, holding open books, etc... Thumb through the book. Look at what I am talking about.

    MS Personal Puzzle Writing Goal #1: Dont be too obvious, but when a person is told the answer, watch them slap their head in a I could've had a V-8 fashion.

    A pointing fairy may only be there to show you their finger. That may be all they are doing. Its not what they are pointing at, but what they are pointing with.

    Dislodge your brain (I sound like a pusher, go-ahead kid, try it) from what you have read elsewhere on this site for a moment. Start looking for hidden or missing fingers in new ways. The more you look at them, the more you realise that they are hidden by leaves or tucked under a border, or a hand is presented in such a contorted in a way that it does not look natural. MS goes to extra effort to only show you one finger here, three there, four on one hand, four on another. I am convinced that I found a faerie with 6 fingers on one hand (No joke).

    A great place to start is on a page that in my mind has yet to really be decoded. Look at page 36. Dont try to spell anything by the fairy game of twister going on. Dont try to interpret good fairy wings from those that have been caught in a blender. Look at those hands. You get to see some fingers and not others. This is not an accident even if it is not a direct solution. This is a presentation.

    Stop. Take a deep breath. Stop building your 5x5 spreadsheets for a moment and read these excerpts again.

    WITH NAME IN HAND THE FAERIES KNOW
    A CODE OF NUMBERS FIVE TO A SIDE
    REVEALS THE NAME WHERE THE TREASURES ABIDE

    You know what I am going to say here right? (Do I really have to type this out cthree?) I hope it is obvious enough to get your juices flowing again and you just stop reading here and get to work. Name in hand the faeries know? Fingers are in hand right? In fact little else in the book is in a faeries hand. A code of numbers five to a side? Lets see here, typical left hand, 5 fingers, typical right hand, 5 fingers, hmmm. Reveals the name where the treasures abide? Name again? You just told me the faeries know the name didn't you? Oh yea, it still works doesnt it? In fact it works so well, I should be in detention.

    I would have to agree with you, kind of like the bar trick where you take a few matches and make a weird shape with them, then changing them around make another shape, telling people that this is a number, while the whole time you are holding 2, 3, 4, etc.. fingers on the bar... Some people can take quite along time to figure it out.


    Good post...

    Default Pete and Repete go into a bar, who is with Pete?

    It has been brought to my attention that this category fits better under the 5x5 code puzzle thread rather than here. This post has been copied and placed there. Monks, please lock this thread here, but leave the original post so that others who stumble upon it may be redirected to the active thread as follows

    I applaud not only your novel thought, but the humor in which you posted it!

    But I think I'll leave this open, too, so that those focusing on fairies can find it easily, too.

    Way to go, Dude!!
