Paper crown. Bugs Meany of the Tigers. Though they should be called the Pufferfish, since most of them are just full of hot air.

MY SHIP. I'm still really excited about Sally and Leroy being a couple. I've been waiting for it since I was six.
Anywho, I really enjoyed this story and I would absolutely love if you updated. There was a lot of evolution in the characters and a lot more adult, darker themes blended in, which I think is pretty awesome, showing the loss of innocence and the cast (especially Leroy)'s maturity.
Thanks so much for this, just please continue. I'm looking forward to reading more of your take on Encylopedia Brown.

Wow! As a fan of the Encyclopedia Brown series who has read all the books in the series (though I'm still collecting some of the spinoff titles here and there)- this was very fun to read. It was interesting to see the characters as teenagers too. I was put off a little by Encyclopedia's rudeness to his parents, but I also thought it was fitting as some of Leroy's teenage rebellion. I'm quite interested to see how this progresses. I also appreciate seeing some of the recurring characters like Charlie Stewart show up- and it's really interesting to see how his teeth collection hobby has morphed into something a lot more gruesome, yet still conceivable.
It's also nice to see Bugs Meany trying to shake his bad boy image and it's fun to see Leroy and Sally as a couple. However, though I know you stated in the last chapter that things were meant to be left ambiguous, I do feel Charlie Stewart and Bugs Meany having any kind of a relationship would be out of character and probably not something Mr. Sobol would approve of. Of course, since this is an alternate universe based on the original books, it is of course your story and is certainly a possibility. In any case, the whole thing has been interesting to read.
(And just as a friendly suggestion- you may want to consider changing the rating though, as Charlie's hobby and the sexual innuendo at the end of the last chapter as well as the violence of a murder case, may not sit well with many parents and children.)
The writing is quite well done overall. Good job.

This is such a lovely written story! Wilford Wiggins is always the bad guy, tricking young and unsuspecting kids to pay money. I loved how you made him the "good guy" and Sally Encyclopedia's boyfriend.

Great story. Good mystery leaves me feeling uncertain, and yours does! Most Encyclopedia Brown stories are too short to make me feel that way.

Considering all the one-off characters, that is one LONG list. The chapter is lovely (lol at Tigers: Minus One). Nice to see it isn't always Bugs.
I wonder when Pablo will show up? He's my favorite minor character. Probably because Encyclopedia doesn't like him, but still. Artists rule.
