Theories

  1. Q9K4 = WHAT
  2. Q9P = WHO/WHY
  3. Q9SA2 = WHICH/WHERE/WHOSE
  4. DK1 = AND
  5. S9 = IS
  6. TD9 = WAS
  7. JLV9SARKW = PRESIDENT
  8. PO = ON
  9. QIY = THE
  1. Playfair cipher? (this goes with the "square" in the flavortext)
  2. QIL, QIV, QUB, QIY, QII all appear.
  3. aboutTurn Is ... Turnabout? We should be swapping parts of words?
  4. There is some duality... Taking a TD9 and JLV9SARKW, we have T->W,W->T, D->A, A->D, etc.
  5. The aforementioned ones are 4 apart (T->W, A->D). Also applies do K->N in DK1 and Q->T in QIY. J->P and L->R in PRESIDENT are 7 apart.
  6. If you flip around DK1 you get 1KD and if you let 1=A then AKD. K transforms to N somehow. And for S9, flipping you get 9S. 9=I.
  7. FOO IS BAR is a standard way of writing cryptogram codes. Doing this for ABOUTTURN/TURNABOUT, U maps to N,O and T maps to A,B. Maybe each successive instance of a letter increments its place in the table by one.
