It's been roughly 24 hours since I saw the Mission Atomic post on the MB. Updates...
-A possible solution to the code (FAIBNCD TDHEE HFIGVHE) is FIND THE HIVE, which can be reached by reading every other letter. (GO MB PERSON YOU'RE COOL.) I'm not sure how that's the big clue? But I guess it comes into play. Maybe there's something else as well?
-Someone else realized, THE CREST DOESN'T SHATTER ON THIS COVER. GUYS. IT'S ALWAYS SHATTERED ON THE COVER OF THE FINAL BOOK. WHAT THE HECK. ?!?!!??!
I swear he hates us.
Any more theories?
