How disappointing. I won't spare you with a short recap, but, suffice it to say, TheCrazyChemist saved Things2do. Another accusation for him. Oh boy.

Here's my next target:

You seem to have figured out one of these in the past, but I've added another layer. Blaise (although it was really Giovan) will be able to help you with this one again, at least for the first steps. This clue is rather like a matryoshka doll. On the outer one is a depiction of the local top dog. The inner one has the name of H.J. Potter's nemesis.

48 hours.

The cipher is probably a vigenere, because Blaise de Vigenere is some guy accredited with making the encryption method but apparently someone named Giovan described it first? Idk.

So it's a vignere for the first, under the code of the "local top dog" and for the second another decrypting with the code of probably Draco Malfoy or Voldemort/TomRiddle/Hewhoisnottobenamed.
I don't like the Wizarding universe's logic.
Why would I ever use Avada Kedavra if I could just hit them with an explosive spell?
Or better yet, have a spell that just kills em if they're in range. (it should be possible given the range of what magic is capable in their universe)
Or even better, accio Russia's nukes.
Or just use a gun. That's probably more dangerous than anything in that universe combined.
(as a Texan, trust me, Voldemort would not stand 2 seconds against a dude with a semi-auto)

I don't have any idea about the clue. However, I'm gonna accuse TCS. I accuse TheChiScientist because the sig on clue number 7 can refer to Lake County, CA, which has a lake called Clear Lake in it, which is like Crystal Lake, the school TCS used to go to. In addition, TCS has been kinda quiet on the forums, which could but attributed to going into college, but I'm not sure.
I won't be posting anymore, but my PM's will always be open.

I am not TCS. One fewer accusation for TCC. I will also be polite and confirm that the first step is a Vigenere.
