Inprovisation = music, dance, some art form?
Inspiration = the act of taking in a breath? inspired to do something? take an action?

How many people relevant? HAM's or HAF's?

Were the two people doing something? Physical, mental, involving electronics, computers, thinking? Was the improvisation something they were doing? Something other people were doing? That possibly inspired them?

Any television, internet, media involved? Was there an improvised solution to a problem? Improvised by making a lateral leap? Improvised like MacGyver would, haha?

The HAM and HAF, professions relevant at all? Are they in a building when this improvisation, and/or inspiration "happens", outside, at home, at work?

Country relevant [LTPF list of countries]? Time period [LTPF list of time periods]? Made up, historical or FYOL?

Were you doing something by yourself, was the HAF? Were you using the internet to search for something, together, you alone, her alone? Information? Money involved at all? The solution to something, but not a problem? Math relevant?

Can we call them Balin and Jenny? Was she the one who improvised, were you, or both? Was she the one who was inspired, were you, or both?

Stupid FA's...

So you were definitely improvising something? And you were definitely inspired? When you say "yes and noish" to "were you doing something by yourself?" is that because you were doing something... yes? But by yourself... noish? You were improvising the solution to something? LTPF board relevant? Is it Balin and someone else on the board? Were you inspired by someone else's puzzle?

Oh right, more questions...

Ok. Is this related to a puzzle on TLPF that happened recently? Within the last week, month, year? A private conversation with a person off the forum? Contact with any person on the forum?

Any of these usual suspects involved: Nimue, Doriana, Noel, Jenburdoo?

Is Gregoryuconn somehow involved as usual? Haha, just kidding Greg! =)

Is my false assumption that "they" are ever together, that "they" are doing anything together, or simultaneously? That there is a "they" at all?

Have the two of you ever met? Are your professions relevant?

Ok. Is this related to a puzzle on TLPF that happened recently? Yes Within the last week, month, year? A couple months ago, I think A private conversation with a person off the forum? No Contact with any person on the forum? No

Any of these usual suspects involved: Nimue, Doriana, Noel, Jenburdoo? Noel

Is Gregoryuconn somehow involved as usual? No - I would think it safe to assume that Gregory is not a HAF. Haha, just kidding Greg! =)

Is my false assumption that "they" are ever together, that "they" are doing anything together, or simultaneously? That there is a "they" at all? None of these, really - your FA is that there is only one action relevant.

Have the two of you ever met? No Are your professions relevant? No

Was it your puzzle? or Noel's puzzle? (Will you be mad if we peek back at the recent puzzles? It seems that they are ALL here on the active page anyway - I'm just sayin'...)

Was your part the inspiration? Noel's improvisation? The opposite?

So... did Noel write something in her own puzzle that is relevant? Did you write something relevant? When you say the opposite, do you mean that your part was the improvisation? And her's is the inspiration?

Was something you "improvised" a question on her puzzle? An answer? An inference? Was her inspiration to do something? Create a new puzzle? Answer on one of yours?

Are any actions outside of puzzling relevant?

Did Noel have a comment or statement in one of her puzzles that led (inspired) you to do (improvise) something in "real life"?

Did it involve: School? Family? Church? Work? Home?
Roommates? Neighbors? Friends? Co-workers? Strangers?
Classes? Homework? Household chores? Job Duties? Meals? Parties?

Wow, I made it into an LTPF puzzle. Cool!
I'm intrigued.


Is this related to a puzzle statement? To an answer to a question? To some aside comment in italics?

Is the type of puzzle a rulebreaker? A regular LTPF puzzle? Other?

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

I have a tendency to not decide my Halloween costume until the last minute. This October 31st, while pondering what to be, I realized I had the materials to be Linus (red striped shirt, light blue blanket) in my dorm, so I was Linus for Halloween. Only in recent retrospect did I realize that I might have been unconsciously inspired by Noel's puzzle about the Great Pumpkin - my costume was definitely improvised, but it may very well have been inspired by Noel.

Nice work everybody, and points to Kaylee for the solve. And points to whoever can come up with the appropriate adjective describing the fact that this Halloween puzzle was solved on Christmas.

I'm glad if I could be of inspiration, even at an unconscious level.
