I like that faust/Ichi are both happy with eachotehr's lynches.  And I'm not really sure what gives them that read.  faust justified his on Ichi a bit; ichi justified his on faust pretty badly I think.

In a reads list, Ichi shifts faust from null to scummy, when really there wasn't any indication in any of ichi's posts between those two reads-posts of reasons for that switch.

If mcmc is indeed town, we should look to faust/Ichi.

Well I guess we'll find out. If mcmc is indeed town, I'll be looking to you though. I find your confidence townie, but it could also be scum bluffing.

You have made some incredibly strong statements against mcmc, but I asked myself. Is that really the best tactic for town either?
To have super strong reads as town, you better be actually positive that mcmc was scum. Otherwise, you would know that it would reflect badly on you, which seems like a poor gambit.

i'm disapointed if that's true, you just had so many bad responses to everything i had.  Ichi/faust are a pair worth looking into tomorrow if mcmc is town.

if mcmc is scum and still trolling us, I think ADK is the place to look tomorrow.

Regardless, I think it's worth taking a look at ADK. At the very least, I'd like to hear tomorrow about what he thinks about all this stuff that he's missed.

After Frank's arrest, all of his friends in Washington gathered information with one goal in mind : catching the people who outed him, and destroy them before they could do more damage.

One of them quickly identified the obvious : it had to be Claire. She clearly hadn't always been comfortable with her husband's actions, and had decided to do the right thing and bring him down. Only her could have so easily known his weak points, going back to his early days as a young senator.

After a few other were convinced, they got to work and gathered everything they had on her : the affairs, the secret abortions, the relations between her NGO and Somalian arms dealers, the breaking of work ethics on a daily basis... it was only after everything had been sent to every news outlet in the country that they realized their mistake : how could someone so clearly self-interested and ready to do anything have brought down her own husband so close to his goal ?


mcmcsalot has been lynched. He was Claire Underwood, the Corrupt Politician (Town Vanilla) !

That morning, Washington woke up to a new scandal : a scandal involving a certain Washington Herald reporter had broken out during the night and she had quickly been fired and forced to leave town to escape the press. It was revealed that she had compromised herself with several people on Capitol Hill, one of which was rumored to be Frank Underwood himself. Pictures were released, and it was revealed that she had failed to share her knowledge of election frauds and instances of corruption with the public, thus failing the ideals of her profession. Everyone on Capitol Hill knew this was the next step after Frank's removal from office, and that they would have to do everything in their power to stop this from continuing.

Delirious Deleuze has been forced to leave politics. He was Zoe Barnes, the Corrupt Journalist (Town Vanilla).

Feel good?  I didn't like it.. I was pretty sure he was going to end up being town.. but I guess now knowing it for certain helps.  I have to go back and reread too. 

DeDe getting night killed doesn't seem to give a lot of info.  He had almost zero suspicion.  Most of the other players have a decent chance of getting lynched by town. That seems like the safest choice for scum, which maybe supports one of the veterans being scum.  Or maybe it was just obvious.

Not sure what to make of Voltaire's reaction to the flip, seems weird...

My main suspects right now are Ichi and ADK. I'll need to reread to see how they behaved towards the conf!townies.

Yep, this. shraeye should be a huge suspect today but NOT an auto-lynch. In fact, I don't think he's most likely to be scum. I just think he should be a strong candidate. I will most likely not want to lynch shraeye today.

Why? I'm happy we lost a VT. We were wrong on mcmc but eh we're usually wrong D1. Now we can re-read D1 with two flips and all our PRs left. That's not best-case scenario, but it's the best version of the most-likely scenario.

Well, I do agree that it's nice to still have our PRs, only with the odd-night/even-night stuff they're not as strong.

How do we feel about a Doc claim, by the way? They can't use their power until N3, and having the claim now leaves scum with a hard decision whether to shoot the IC or hunt the Cop N2.

I'd say later in the day, maybe. The doc should think about it. Hmm hmm hmm. It would also avoid the Cop targeting the Doc which would be bad (not disastrous, but...) Oh my. Maybe I do like it? I dunno.

Voltaire is still my strongest suspect here. This all definitely warrants a reread, but I don't like the way he only started pushing hard on the mc wagon after there were several people voting on it.

Nik's out the gate vote for shraeye seems a little suspect as well, but that might just be a newbie mistake. He was also the lurkiest newbie on day on so maybe there's something there.

I'm inclined to believe shraeye is town, I'm much more suspicious of people who jumped on the wagon after it got going (Voltaire's the big one, possibly also faust and nik)

Claiming: Seems a little risky to me, having both PRs survive to LyLo would pretty much mean an auto-win. It's ultimately up to them, I suppose.

PPE: So I'm scum for disagreeing with people? My read was off from others on mc and yet I was right. I'm going to vote for who I think is scummy, not who other people tell me to.
