Quinn: A person? H/A/M?
A pet? Cat perhaps? My Auntie Berni has a kitten named Quinn. He steals cherries from the fruit bowl on her kitchen table to play with as if they were toys. Silly Quinn.

Board game? Card game? Game that involves you physically in some way? Computer game? Online game? RPG?

Different teams involved? Quinn was on your side but changed sides for some reason? Willingly? According to an agreement? Because she had to? Assuming it's an RPG, was she captured by the other team or something?

Is Quinn an RPG character variantly used my different players?

(Handheld) console game?

Is Quinn the character you played? Or a character you were responsible for in some way? Or a character whose powers your character (temporarily) had? Are "they" non-playable enemies? And you lost against them?

My dear Balin, if I may
Humbly request for you to say
Is there any possible way
We could have a hint as to the FA?

I'd really like for it to be
Cleared up quickly you see
For entre nous, 'tween you and me
This FA irritates me grievously!

In fact, there have been two FAs
Through which the solvers are restrained.
To best help move this one along,
I'll clear up both assumptions wrong.

The first is that there's just one Quinn;
In fact, there's two: where to begin....
Both Quinns are well alike, you see,
With one to them, and one to me.

The other FA's near the same:
That "they" were involved in the game.
Though both Quinns are in fiction found,
In different places they're around.

And "second Quinn" is near the same
To "first Quinn" - mine - the one in game.
Both Quinns are indeed HTF,
But where to find them is on shelf.

Welcome. And sorry for the look...maybe it's just me, but every male I've been friends with or else is the friend of a friend, up to now, has had some period in their lives where they've been into Batman comics/TV/films and so would know about her. (Well, either that or they just never mentioned not knowing about her) *offers Balin a peanut butter sandwich*

*accepts sandwich* Thanks!

And I was into Batman for a while (the TV show and movies), but I never encountered Harley Quinn.


Might as well drop a HINT: Quinn #2 is also a fictional character, but not in a video game.

RECAP: This puzzle involves two fictional HTFs named Quinn - one who is Yopishly a character in a video game, and one who is from another entertainment medium. The two Quinns have very similar characteristics, but my Quinn came first.

HINT: Finding out the video game system will help.

Is the one Quinn a Mii? YES!!!

And that's the most important part, so...

**********SPOILER**********

On the television show Glee, there is a character named Quinn. On my Wii back at home, there is a Mii that I made...also named Quinn. The two Quinns look very similar (both are female, have similar facial features, etc.), so naturally, one might assume that I created the Mii to look like the character. But the Mii predates the show (which I actually have never seen) - I had Quinn before they did.

Nice job, Kaylee, Ixoye, Galfisk, and everyone. Lateral Adventure coming right up!
