"I don't think the doctor is being straightforward with us," Mr. Nogoon said suddenly. "There is something insincere about her."

Dr. Yukon looked up from her notebook. "Excuse me?"

Mr. Nogoon stroked his chin. "I was upset that i would not be playing my music for the late Baroness, so I went in search of some music of my own. Imagine my surprise, then, that i would see Dr. Yukon with a piece of piano wire -- and doing her best to hide it."

Dr. Yukon took off her glasses and began cleaning them. "You are misrepresenting what you saw."

"And what are you saying it is that i saw?"

"Yes, I was handling a piece of piano wire earlier, but that was only because i was trying to find the piano to which it belonged."

"And did you?" Mr. Nogoon pressed.

"No."

"Did you look in the Music Room?"

"No."

Mr. Nogoon nodded excitedly. "Exactly. Wouldn't the Music Room be the first place a smart person would take some stray piano wire? Instead, i saw you going into the Chamber of Illusions with it." He turned to the group. "I can't be the only one who finds that incredibly suspicious."

[TheButlerButinnocent suggests Dr. Yukon with the piano wire in the Chamber of Illusions.]

Great Aunt Smoke took a sip from her cup. "That's ridiculous! Let me tell you why."

She walked over to Mr. Nogoon and whispered something in his ear.

"Look as long as I'm up", Great Aunt Smoke announced, "I might as well say my thoughts on the matter."

She pointed her finger, "Princess Blueblood. Ever since you got here, all you talked about was that golden umbrella. Based on the weight of it, it would make a fitting weapon for my darling Boddy. BUT, why would you risk getting blood on it. Instead, I think you, Princess Blueblood, commented the crime with the Candelabra, in the Parlor Room.

She then put her glass in her purse.

Princess Blueblood begins to laugh obnoxiously, "Good grief, you have to be the simplest person I've encountered."

Princess Blueblood brings her lips close to Great Aunt Smoke's ear. She whispers quickly with an additional snort laugh.

"Your mind must be slipping..." Princess Blueblood folds her arms.

[cacums can disprove]

"Now, let's get down to business." Princess Blueblood addresses the group, "It is obvious that the true attention should be brought to Miss Julep, the dastardly Brick, and the Tram Reception"

[cacums suggests Miss Julep with the Brick at the Tram Reception]

Mr. Raven thought, thoughtfully, knowing full well he was in the tram reception earlier, before answering, "You know, I was in there for a good amount of time, y'know, but ah, anyone could have came in after, and y'know, Miss Julep mans the bar, and so...plenty of bricks around, this old sort of home, so y'know, you be right."

Raven paused,

"Say," He then quipped, "I don't suppose her first name's Minty?"

"I swear to God that I didn't kill him! I was traumatized when I saw his corpse at the foyer stairs... But I don't have any evidence to prove my innocence. Maybe you do, Herr Weiss, or you, Signorina Cappadona?" Miss Julep stuttered.

She then whispered to Mr. Raven once more, this time less of a soft whisper and more of an insistent, loud one. "Never tell anyone my first name again."

Herr Weiss and Signorina Cappadona both shook their heads as Miss Julep looked at them desperately. Miss Julep gulped and turned to face Miss Taupe.

"Why am I surrounded by incompetence! There is no way that could be true! Do I have to spell it out?"
It would seem that Mr Vermillion is sering red.He never was one to be patient wirh people whoweren't as quick as him, which amounts to so many people it's why he started his own company in the first place.

Earl Gules straightened himself (something he had difficulty doing sometimes) and brushed his blood-red velvet coat with a flourish.

"Well," He said, "Having half-listened to much of the drabble this evening, I think it's quite clear what's off here. I think there is one crook among us, and that person going red in the face over there -- you Mr. Vermillion. Look at him, an aging dollop of a man. It must be difficult for you seeing more virile specimens among you, like myself of course, and Mr. Boddy. That's why you cut his throat with a razor, in that reception spot where the cable car took us. I saw you leave the house at some point when I was heading to my chamber...therefore...you must have went there. Where else could you have possibly wanted to go?"

(I suggest it was Mr. Vermillion, with the Razor in the Tram Reception)

This time, Maharaja Mango opted to speak.

"Well, that does seem likely..."

At this point, he was ready to pin the blame on anyone, anyone but himself.

Rosa Cappdona narrowed her eyes to look across at Mr Vermilion.
"I can see that happening. He looks the type."

I cannot disprove, cue BBP.

With Mr Vermillion reaching near boiling point at the inth suspicion put on him, Ms Taupe decided to step in.

"I am certain your suggestion is not probable. Let me tell you what I know..."

(Sorry, huge brain fart there!)

"Not to speak ill of the elderly, Great Aunt Smoke, but I've seen you eyeing some objects around the chateau," Maharaja Mango noted, now an active participant in the investigation. "Perhaps Boddy caught you trying to steal... the stained glass lamp. I recall it being in the lepi-, lepo-, the strange butterfly room."

Maharaja Mango suggests that it was Great Aunt Smoke with the Stained Glass Lamp in the Lepidopterarium.

"No, no, no. That can't possibly be true" said Herr Weiss.

"What seems more possible, is a crime passionelle. Heat of the moment and all that. Somebody grabbed an item, say the crossbow; in say...the fur fridge. Someone hot headed, someone like..."

He paused to look at Signorina Cappadona.

"ME?" she shrieked. "How dare you? I'm sure somebody will prove you wrong right now."

She looked at the faces around the room, stopping briefly on each. People felt impelled to say they could disprove Herr Weiss, just to stop her glaring at them. But could anyone honestly say he was wrong?

Cue BBP to disprove.

"There's nothing in my calculations that could disprove your suggestion," Mr Vermillion said, grateful he wasn't the person on the firing line this time. "Does anybody else see any reason why this couldn't be true?"

Seeing the room fall silent, Lieutenant Flax climbed to her feet and pretended to pace, observing each face around the table with a methodical rigidity, arms poised behind her back.

Sticking out her leg, she pretended to trip on the chair of Dr. Yukon, but in actually, she had secretly retrieved a slip of paper from the woman's pocket. And finally, when no one was looking, she placed it discreetly into Cappadona's palm, as much as it pained her to touch someone of her sort.

"What say you?" she said abruptly, trying to shift attention onto Vermillion and Taupe.
