    The baby freaks me out, but I don't see anything in that picture.

    I'm playing around with the attic one(I don't really know what I'm doing though). I can see a plug/receptacle in the top left. It also looks like there is some sort of structure like thing there. There is some sort of wood pieces to the bottom right. There may be a door with something in it to the left/down of the plug(behind the chair).

    I'm wondering if we have anything in the text...the picture of the moon with the trees spelled out darkness with its capital letters. They are doing some text position things that could mean something as well.


    The doll picture had "c͎̉̇̇ͮ̚͞͞L̫̼̱̯͍̟̯ͩͣ͛̂̌͌̒͆̚͜͟ͅe͂̐ͭ̒͏͉̠͎̪̝̗v̮͇ͯ̍̋͒̇ ̬̲̰̖E̥͖͚̯̹ͨͣ̆̍͂͝͝R̛ͭ͋̅̉҉͔̜̻͎͉͍̝̫ ͍̯̦̻̺̙̗͋ͦͩͬͨP̴͚̹̰̲͉͙͖̈̈͆͑̋ͥ̄̽ͅù̩̝̺̝͔͊̅ͣͅm̠̖̪ͭ͂͛̽̈́ ̥p̧͈̤̹̰̜̻͖̰̃̿̋̎ͮ̃̈K̵̓͒̍ͧͧ̚͏̙̰̟͔̫̬̮͔i̢̜͇̘̭ͨ͋̿̏͐̑͂ͦ͜ ̮̯n̗̻͆́́͡ " as a note, that's putting some extra capital letters in places. H F H T T L E R P K for that post

    We had grave italicized in one of the "no clues during the holiday" posts

    I put "memories" down, and then remembered that I wanted to put "My November Pumpkin" as an answer. Whoops.

    The rocking chair picture has what looks like, for lack of a better thing, a refrigerator on the left side, along with some sort of small barrel looking thing with a tag or note. There's nothing there though and I can't find the entire original stock picture that the Other Worldly Powers used to create this creepy image to compare. I was hoping for something in the image because of the "Don't look behind you", but now that I think about it, it probably implies that the answer is something like "The Past".

    I assumed that "Clever Pumpkin" was a response to the one reblog on the post.

    Ok. I lack the tools to edit image the chair properly. Anybody able to invert the colors or summat, see if theres something hidden in the image.

    Im a bit stumped this week.

    I tried playing around with it in gimp, but I don't really know what I'm doing. No matter how many times I clicked enhance, nothing was obvious!(hehe).

    I was able to see a bit extra with colour switches, but nothing obvious. I think we are missing something with the doll

    This is the best I can get of the attic so far. I think allen is right that its a fridge, then some sort of barrel/body bag looking thing on the left

    I'm not seeing anything in todays insider. I'm going to read all the "answers" that showed up today, see if there are any hints there

    I'm ignoring any of the posts that say "no hints until new year", assuming nothing is in them.

    So we have halfmoon through the trees picture
    - The capital letters here spell out darkness, so I believe this one is self contained.

    We have creepy doll
    - PP posted in the notes - cLevER PumpKin
    - The poem
    Hush, darling baby, Father sits near.
    He shall protect thee—there’s naught to fear.
    Though purple storm clouds loom o’er the eaves,
    The watchers spare the child who believes.

    We have dark attic picture
    - Hashtag of "don't look behind you."
    - twineswitches had a note on this one & I believe that user has proven in the past to be a mole planted by the powers. They said "coat20reversal" whatever that means

    I don't see anything in the question and answer section or the insider for today

    I have a feeling that coat20reversal is a password. I've tried looking for a clever pumpkin user in photobucket, tried looking for a twinestitches user, tried looking for different combos of those usernames and album names, tried LERPK as a user, etc.

    I hate photobucket. Absolutely hate it. It's a bloated platform that I feel is giving me drive-by malware whenever I visit it. I wish PP had picked a different platform for this.

    The one thing that stills gnaws at me is the grave from two weeks ago.

    Agreed on everything. I'm also thinking the capitalization means something. I don't remember that part going "off the rails" previously

    Was there an account we had found previously that we never found the password to?

    So I have gone through most of the insiders in the last while, I can't find anything similar to what's been done in them in the past. No hidden links in pictures that I can find, no out of place linked words etc(although I may have missed this if they left the word the same colour as the rest of the text).

    The don't look behind you could be reference to Matt wilsons picture, where he is looking behind the chair he is sitting in. There could be oblique references to that with the father stuff as well, since he was a founder. I feel like that particular insider wouldn't be involved in the arg though due to its importance.

    Umm, I don't see any new insiders that got slipped into rotation or anything.

    Anyone else able to go through some and check for hidden stuff?

    Was hidden in the html code behind the final image. Not sure if you could have found the clue without looking at the page's html.

    If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them.

    They are stepping things up then I think, that's a bit past what we've done so far, interesting.

    I wonder if the don't look behind was the tip that one?

    Definitely seems to be the case in that regard.

    Will be interesting to see where the clues lead in the future.

    Welp, guess it's time start combing through the html of all the insiders as well. Wonderful.

    Still don't understand the references to Don't Look Behind You and graves

    Graves I'm not sure. You could extend "don't look behind you" to fit looking at a pages HTML though, since the code is "behind" the page you see in a way. I'm not sure if that's a stretch or not.

    You could also fit it into that insider since it was looking at the past history (behind us) of something.

    I may just be fitting things to my own head though

    I was about to try that, but it appears that PP's website itself "all fell down". I'm sure it will be up in a few minutes.

    Something big like the names of the warlocks is probably too big a sacrifice. I'm currently betting it's mention in narrative pieces as murder victims or something.
