A. A. Milne

  • noun Halfway up the stairs in the Cottage can be heard a ghostly voice reciting to itself a poem by A. A. Milne. Roy Trubshaw put this in as a joke, remembering that Milne wrote a well-known children's poem called "Halfway up the stairs". However many BL players were unaware of this and sought out some deeper meaning, with their confusion compounded upon learning that the poem Milne wrote was actually called "Halfway down the stairs" (it's the second verse that starts "Halfway up the stairs"). Finding the source of the voice and trying to stop it is now a self-perpetuating legend.
