It is not the right answer. And you do not have the right theme.

Urwen 06-13-2019 03:40 PM

But what other theme could possibly connect Turin and Niniel?

Pervinca Took 06-13-2019 03:42 PM

Copying it over.

???T???: French valley lingerie? No way! Mix it up for him.
???U???: A handle and the French one are in turmoil for her.
???R???: After an awful, unsung muddle, forty-nine will reveal her.
NINIEL: She sounds like a silly one, the Spanish girl.
FINWE: Spouse around a way for him.

????

Pervinca Took 06-13-2019 03:45 PM

I'm not telling you the answer!

I wanted to find a new theme, and a less obvious one.

Urwen 06-13-2019 03:48 PM

Dual names maybe?


In which case, 3 would be Nienor, and 1 would be Turambar

Urwen 06-13-2019 03:49 PM

Is forty-nine a roman numeral?

Pervinca Took 06-13-2019 03:50 PM

Re: Dual names

Good idea, but no.

It would make far more sense to actually solve the clues.

Why don't you try it and see if it works?

It was actually someone else doing a dual names password - many, many pages ago now - that gave me the idea for couples passwords, and then all the family pairs I did too. But this isn't one of those kinds of themes/passwords.

Urwen 06-13-2019 03:56 PM

Let's see. DIRE-E = DIR. In a muddle = IDR

Forty-nine = IL

It gives us Idril.

Pervinca Took 06-13-2019 03:57 PM

Correct.

???T???: French valley lingerie? No way! Mix it up for him.
???U???: A handle and the French one are in turmoil for her.
IDRIL: After an awful, unsung muddle, forty-nine will reveal her.
NINIEL: She sounds like a silly one, the Spanish girl.
FINWE: Spouse around a way for him.

Urwen 06-13-2019 03:58 PM

And I still have no idea what the theme is.....

Urwen 06-13-2019 03:59 PM

Handle is a knob and French for 'one' is UN or UNE......

Urwen 06-13-2019 04:15 PM

2. Luthien (HILT+UNE)

Pervinca Took 06-14-2019 01:19 AM

???T???: French valley lingerie? No way! Mix it up for him.
LUTHIEN: A handle and the French one are in turmoil for her.
IDRIL: After an awful, unsung muddle, forty-nine will reveal her.
NINIEL: She sounds like a silly one, the Spanish girl.
FINWE: Spouse around a way for him.

Urwen 06-14-2019 01:27 AM

Maybe a hint for #1......?


I've tried everything to solve it. Synonyms, French translations, everything, and nothing gives me a Tolkien character.

Pervinca Took 06-14-2019 01:42 AM

It's a pretty famous French valley.

Urwen 06-14-2019 01:47 AM

And lingerie?

Pervinca Took 06-14-2019 01:48 AM

Well, yes. Choose an item of it!

Urwen 06-14-2019 02:06 AM

So Loire+Bra

Pervinca Took 06-14-2019 02:45 AM

One of those is right, and that's all I'm saying for now.

Urwen 06-14-2019 03:12 AM

Tar-Aldarion?

Urwen 06-14-2019 03:13 AM

I am assuming that the last character has an initial 'T'.

Urwen 06-14-2019 03:20 AM

Theme: People in the same family. Turin and Nienor are great-grandchildren of Bregolas, brother of Barahir, father of Beren, who married Luthien.

They might.

Not Tar-Aldarion.

Not members of the same family. How about Finwe?

Urwen 06-14-2019 03:29 AM

Well, nothing fits. I've tried removing Loir (LOIRE-E) from the names of several characters I've found and I was left with things that don't fit each time......

Urwen 06-14-2019 03:31 AM

Unless I leave 'Loire' intact and remove 'R' from bra instead.....

Pervinca Took 06-14-2019 03:39 AM

I said no way, not no valley.

Urwen 06-14-2019 03:44 AM

But nothing fits.

I've tried various names, and nothing fits.......


aaaaaa...... >.>

Pervinca Took 06-14-2019 03:46 AM

I did say only one of LOIRE and BRA was correct.

I will also add that the particular lingerie item is one that I would personally never wear. Even when I was younger and thinner. (Revoltingly unhygienic, in my opinion).

Urwen 06-14-2019 03:52 AM

Wait......

Try another size ....

Urwen 06-14-2019 03:53 AM

Thorongil (THONG+LOIR)

Pervinca Took 06-14-2019 04:00 AM

THORONGIL: French valley lingerie? No way! Mix it up for him.
LUTHIEN: A handle and the French one are in turmoil for her.
IDRIL: After an awful, unsung muddle, forty-nine will reveal her.
NINIEL: She sounds like a silly one, the Spanish girl.
FINWE: Spouse around a way for him.

THEME: Tolkien characters loved romantically by two people, not just one.

Well done. Please go ahead and post the next password. I'm *hoping* I've just answered correctly in 'One thing in common,' and I want to put those names in there, unless you guess my theme before Huinesoron confirms yes or no.

EDIT: I have! So the theme is now the current question in that thread.

FURTHER EDIT: Now guessed in the other thread, so I will post it above too.

Urwen 06-14-2019 04:09 AM

But I want to know the theme.......

Urwen 06-14-2019 04:25 AM

Okay, so here you are.

1. Ancient letter in the spin. A middle way, and she is revealed.
2. An admirer of spinning mineral, he is.

Heh.

Urwen 06-14-2019 04:39 AM

Oh, and for those who want me to 'complete' this set before playing, it is completed.

Huinesoron 06-14-2019 04:43 AM

Well, RUNE + W gives URWEN for #1.

hS

Urwen 06-14-2019 04:47 AM

URWEN: Ancient letter in the spin. A middle way, and she is revealed.
2. An admirer of spinning mineral, he is.
