Well, if a link may help, then sure.

Thank you.

5. The link reveals that there is a real life lady called Frodo with a doctorate. Which gives us - Frodo!

Is the password possibly Frodo? And could I pretty please see his name in a lovely red diagonal?

Yes, and sure.

FRODO: Note a house covering in the muddle for him
FRODO: A spinning car? Add a vowel for him.
FRODO: Victual is a mess. Path in the middle. See him.
FRODO: She is a doctor, or is it him?
FRODO: Briefly, French note, with a vowel in the middle, unearths him.

Now we each have had a password comprised solely of (one) of our favorite characters.

Thank you!

Did you realise that one more post will make this the longest thread in the Quiz Room subforum?

And would you like to do the next password, since that one was done as a request/favour?

I think my themes/clues/passwords are becoming a bit repetitive, and honestly, I like Frodo too, so you may do the next one, unless you're too busy.

Just a quick one, then.

1. One who might perform late in French?
2. Boys with fiery facial features?
3. Grond used as a crusher of nincompoops?
4. Scrap of cloth and playground game return for this one.

3. Must be a NINNYHAMMER, surely?

I'm so sorry I missed being suitably punished by your negative password.

(Hmm... I wonder if there's a way to concoct a password based on a sort of anti-Menegroth... the Negative Thousand Caves, so to speak... )

Urwen - you mean HAM as in a hammy performance and A as in 'at' (sometimes where it would be 'in' in English?) That's clever, but it's a different synonym for 'perform' and a different word put into French.

Huinesoron, I knew you'd probably miss it, because it happened at the weekend, but I hope you enjoyed reading the final, solved product.

It was nearly a smaller password with SILENCE as the answer, but after trying a few numbers (and even capital letters I and O to spell 10) to no avail, luckily the word 'eleven' added to 'minus' gave eleven letters.

And before you start threatening me with the cube root of minus eleven, this latest one is mostly first letters and has no anagrams. (Well, it can't have. There are no anagram indicators!)
