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

But what other theme could possibly connect Turin and Niniel?

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.

I'm not telling you the answer!

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

Dual names maybe?


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

Is forty-nine a roman numeral?

Re: Dual names

Good idea, but no.

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

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.

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

Forty-nine = IL

It gives us Idril.

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

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


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

It's a pretty famous French valley.

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

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

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?

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......

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).

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.

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.
