The key to the portal
is to write sonnets in perfect iambic pentameter and the
Oracle holds the key. So we have to write at least one
sonnet in iambic pentameter (even though my dictionary
says that sonnets are only "usually" written in iambic
pentameter)to please Forensic.
I have known this
for a while and maybe that's why I have resisted. I
don't follow arbitrary orders very well and just
couldn't help but to test how far he would take it. I
need logical reasons for a course of
That's what all that stuff about the
tribe and the code and following the rules or they will
shun you is likely about.
Also, I believe there
is only one FP but he may be in cahoots with others who
are supporting him. However, I still haven't a clue as
to who Forensic Popouri may be.
Question to FP: If
the Oracle is programmed by The Powers That Tea how can
it/he judge what has a soul?
PS to FP: I knew
that the second sonnet lesson was only bait and thats
why I didn't reply. I also knew it was payback for my
annoying you at Tea Time so I'm sorry. My

One more clue from
today's tea time:
"THE PORTAL here. The
shimm'ring wall, right there
is under my control. I
am the key. "
So the Oracle, The Powers That Tea,
is the key and controls the portal. Hhhmmmmm so if he's
the key are we supposed to find out who he is? No, I
don't think so, I think the point is to find out the
purpose of the portal and he is the key that opens it.
The key has all of the answers, which we must find out
More Clues: Mister Verschip

another thing. I had just finished watching the last ep
for season 3, you know when the scoobies graduate from
highschool, etc., well Buffy and Faith share a dream in
that ep and Faith said to Buffy, "Human weakness never
goes away." I think Faith was referring to both Angel
and the mayor. Both are not human, but they kept their
human tendencies, i.e. weakness. Since humanity means
the fact or quality of being human, isn't human weakness
just a symptom of humanity? Therefore, doesn't that mean
they (Angel and the mayor and Mister_Verschip for that
matter) may have a speck of humanity?
What do you

I definitely thought
of the connection Joss (or another wirter from the show)
and FP... but this thought is getting further and
further as I am reading older Tea Times. FP seems just
like "any other Bronzers" (I don't mean that in any
derogatory way!). I am not sure any person connected
with the show would have the liberty to connect to the
Bronze at fixed hour everyday and even stay on that
late. Also, why would they talk about meeting JM at the

First FP wrote it as
babble fish, but then he changed it to babel. I think
he's referring to the city of Babel that is mentioned in
the bible. So I looked up Babel in my trusty dictionary
and it states: (1) Babel was a city thwarted in building
a tower to heaven when God created a confusion of
tongues. (2) a confusion of voices, sounds, etc. or the
scene of this.
So, is FP saying that we are a
babel because we have been conversing not only in
English, but in French as well?
I think Tea Time
is a babel because there is so much confusion in FP's
clues and it's also confusing as to the purpose and
final destination of Tea Time. Hhmmmmm...I just thought
of something else. Look at the first definition of
Babel. Are we the people of Babel building a tower to
heaven, heaven being the outcome of this sonnetizing
experiment, and then God creates a confusion of tongues.
Is the God here Forensic Popouri or is it us with our
attempts at verse that's creating the din of noise? It
seems to make sense.
However, perhaps heaven
isn't the outcome of Tea Time, but the conclusion of
season six. Then that would make the God in this
WAIT! Does that mean FP is
actually Joss? GASP! Duckwheat did tell me once that he
thought monkeywithoutpants was Joss. Re:

not possible. Joss is a very busy man. He doesn't have
time for this.

mind and grumbling stomach. I must go and tend to my
One more thing. Speaking of the

Teach a man to fish and he can eat for a lifetime. Or
