Mr. Raven looked exasperated, "As if I have time for looking in pantries, or handling bricks. Honestly, I'd only touch a brick if I meant to smash that stupid useless gramophone further! As for Mr. Vermillion, I don't know about him, I doubt he even knows or cares about music, let alone killing anyone. He looks like a stuffy sort, y'know?"

"That does seem quite logical," noted Miss Julep. She didn't have much to say, so she just scooted a bit in her chair and hoped someone else could say something. Perhaps Weiss or Cappadona had something to say on the matter.

"Mio Dio!" said Rosa rising to her feet while having her hands exaggeratedly. "Why does it always fall to me to sort this mess out?"
"Surely its obvious that this cannot have happened. I know for certain that..." she paused. "Well I didn't see Mr Vermillion after a particular time, so I can't vouch for him. But the brick...well...I guess it wasn't where I saw it earlier, so...Now the pantry...okay, so I wasn't anywhere near the pantry, but I'm sure Herr Weiss was in the area and can disprove that part?"

She looked across at Herr Weiss, who shook his head. Rosa flounced back to her chair, folded her arms and looked at the floor.

"Oh no, that's absurd," Vermillion says. "I have perfectly good evidence to bring that theory to the ground."

"Well, I'm sure we are all glad to hear that," Lieutenant Flax chimed in, giving a small shake of her head. For the briefest moment, she had been content to blame this whole affair on Mr. Vermillion, but alas he himself had thwarted her efforts.

Mr. Mossman scans the room, intrigued by the nervous faces of the suspects that have already been suspected of murder.

"Great Aunt Smoke," his finger lands on someone, "I think you crushed Boddy's skull with the Statue of Athena."

"How ghastly!" Princess Blueblood shrieks.

"In the Parlor Room no doubt..." Mr. Mossman narrows his eyes, "I'm certain I've seen you loitering about the Parlor Room."

Earl Gules too was loitering in the back, on the divan, trimming his toenails. His face twitched rather uncomfortably.

"Now that, " He said, "Is simply not possible. Must I tell you why?"

(Earl Gules will disprove the suggestion. )

Mr. Raven rose to his feet, almost levitating.

"Okay! Know what I think? I think it's the one all quiet there -- yeah -- that Mr. Nogoon, always looking so stricken. I think he struck Boddy with something convoluted like..a typewriter! Just made it come crashing down on Boddy's noggin, eh, Nogoon? And it had to be somewhere quiet and out of the way...like the fur fridge! The sound of Boddy's screems would have been muffled through all that muff like a recording studio! There!"

He made a gesture of victory.

Mr. Raven proudly thinks it was Mr. Nogoon with the Portable Typewriter in the Fur Fridge.

Miss Julep nervously moved a bit forward in her chair.

"I... I think that's the alcohol speaking. You had Jägermeister straight from the bottle, and honestly? A suggestion like that proves how inebriated you are."

She walked to Mr. Raven and whispered to him from a distance where she was nowhere near him yet nobody else could hear. After he acknowledged her statement, she went back to her chair.

Suddenly, Maharaja Mango spoke, startling various of the other guests.

"While you all have been chattering away, you've never even thought of the most obvious suspect: Dr. Yukon! Surely only someone with something to hide would accuse royalty of murder. I'm certain that--".

Noticing that some guests (such as Doctor Yukon) had started looking at the frost-covered windows and ignoring his suggestion, he clanged a bronze fork with a crystal handle into its matching bronze vase.

"A sick woman like Yukon would probably use a device like that hideous goat skull. And she'd probably commit the murder in the Chamber of Illusions, that room of magic, a room full of demons!"

Maharaja Mango suggests that it was Dr. Yukon with the Goat Skull in the Chamber of Illusions.

(Cue Jamie.)

Rosa Cappadona made a move to spring to her feet. But Herr Weiss, sensing another outburst got there first.

"While I'm sure that this lovely woman couldn't possibly do such a thing, I cannot provide evidence to confirm this."

Ms Taupe raises her voice:
"I'm afraid I can't tell you anything about the goat skull. It's not quite a sellable item. I haven't gotten around to checking out the Chamber of Illusions, and whatever Yukon's up to you'd have to ask her."

"Since no one else is going to come to my defense, I guess it's up to me." Dr. Yukon took a notebook out of her jacket, wrote something on a piece of paper, tore the page out, folded it and walked across the room. "Please accept this humblest of gifts, Your Highness."

“I don’t like you�.
Heads turned to see who had made this admission. Of course everyone knew instantly, the strong Italian accent gave it away. Rosa Cappadona was stood, gaze locked on Lieutenant Flax.
“You come and assume charge of this investigation, but who is to say that you are innocent. We only have your word that your gun, it was stolen by a person unknown. You could have shot Boddy somewhere remote, like that tower room I was in earlier. Yes, that is what happened, unless there is someone that can prove it wasn’t so?�

She looks around the faces of the assembled guests, defying anyone to contradict her.

I suggest Lieutenant Flax - Luger Pistol - Tower Room. Cue BBP to disprove.

Lieutenant Flax's face hardened, lips pursing as if she had just tasted something incredibly, incredibly sour. And locking eyes with Cappadona, she allowed herself to remain a certain rigidity while speaking up.

"You ought not to be intimidated by a powerful woman," she said flatly. "Had I not seized this investigation, we would perhaps be...finding ourselves among more corpses. Perhaps the murderer should have killed again." She huffed a bit, fumbling through her English in a roundabout way but still standing from her seat with some dignity and placing her outstretched palms on the table.

"I cannot attest to my whereabouts further than I already have. But I am certainly adding you to my list, madame."

Said list emerged from a hidden pocket in her pant leg, and using a pen from another pocket, Flax seemed to make a mark on it. In earnestness, she seemed to have been keeping rather elaborate notes on this whole affair from the get-go. How suspicious. And across the top? Code names for espionage reasons, of course. Secrets and spies.

"Most certainly not, definitely not possible," replied Mr Vermillion. "Let me show you why not."


"Mr Raven, although I can imagine you may be a wet shaver, are you sure that's all you did with the razor at the hot springs?"

[BBP disproves]

BBP suggests Raven - Razor - Hot Springs

Mr. Nogoon noticed everyone looking in his direction. "What are you all staring at me for? I have nothing to say."

"To be perfectly honest, I haven't been fully paying attention to everything that's been going on this evening." Sir Shamrock adjusted in his seat. "I'm not sure that's how that exactly happened, but I can't prove otherwise."

"Oh, that's can't be right... can it?" Princess Blueblood turns to Mr. Mossman.

Mr. Mossman shrugs, "It could very well be true at this point."

"Hmm" Sighed Earl Gules, flipping his boyish blonde wave of hair, "There's a posing that is highly unlikely. Must I explain?"
