Edit: you do not have to have it to solve it, but it will make figuring out the target easier. I will be extending the time you have to solve the clue, so about another 24 hours.

I would give you the Name (note, capitalized N), but it would make it too easy? I don't think I quoted it correctly, but whatevs, y'all know what I mean.

That would certainly be news to me. Another source says it is not a valid area code at all. Olathe is still 913 afaik.

Thanks...guess nobody else has figured out all the IDs, so back to protecting someone for me. The different birds makes me think of birds of prey, but parrots doesn't fit that...but "fly" and the 107 reference make me think of dragonfruit (like dragonfly?) or JasperKota (flying events?). The "Go Colonials" [Edit: in dragon's sig] makes me think football...though, might not be relevant because I think it's just their general sports team. I agree that the Philadelphia Eagles from "touchdown 123" also could be a general East / Anomaly reference just b/c PA and that they've both posted about the superbowl / sports...

So I protect dragonfruit35 because of the 107 reference and the football reference.

I'm going to guess that this is what Sassy meant by event ID clue. If so, the wording leading up to the link is peculiar... it's worded as if Sassy's using the clouds to describe the condition Disney was in (Maybe Sassy is, but that makes it even weirder...)

When I reverse searched the image, I found this website: https://es.videoblocks.com/video/dark-blue-clouds-time-lapse-swckvgibbj36bx9fx, which is primarily written in Spanish? I know Spanish has been mentioned before, maybe that's the ID we should be looking for.
I know stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Next year, I will hopefully know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, weather, fossils, and water.

I'll protect birdylayaduck08 because of the birds, and a touchdown is generally 7 points like 7Lakes.

I remember the first clue targeting TCS had the date January 7th, also 107. Coincidence?

I'm assuming he was referring to after the p.a.t.

That's what we all thought at first, but Sassy said there's more to it. (At least I think that that's what Sassy meant.)

You guys found the event ID, and Spanish is not part of any ID.

Other things to touch upon:
-Think about the phone number again. The way you are looking at it is not the way it is intended to be solved.
-107 is not the game but is something related to the game (107 is also not a date).
-The clue that will make it easier to solve who the target is has been found.
-The more to it for the event is not to dig deeper, but to realize something.

I will make edits if I can think of other things to touch upon.

Guys, I just realized something (it's probably nothing, but I'll still share it). The sky with the clouds were blue. B for the roygbiv clue was Benewcomb...
EDIT1: I'm going to give my wild accusations one more go... In the give the person below you a nickname thread, Benewcomb gave the person below them the nickname of Ron Ron Ron Weasley. Game 107 was Harry Potter related (I think...?). In the ask a question to the person below you thread, Benewcomb asked (twice) if the person below them knew things from Mulan. (Different things, obviously, but they're still Mulan related.) Guys, please correct me if I'm wrong...
EDIT 2: I'm going to apologize in advance if I'm falsely accusing someone again :( :cry:

Yeah IK, but unless the kick screws it up, you get 7 points, which is what usually happens at least in the NFL.

So...
You guys didn't protect the right person and really didn't go further with some of the hints I gave you... so now Tailsfan101 is dead... and the Sassy has won... well not yet.
I'm going to give all officers that are alive an accusation which must be used before 1 PM EST. Good luck!
