fairy h#5 can be found here.
As I already pointed in the comment for solving, it is only necessary to find right place for given mating pictures.
(I see in the moment solution isn't present on the web page, but hopefully will insert all missing Pat a Mat
solutions in a reasonable time horizon.) What I like in this position is the reciprocity of keys - in a) 1.Ke3-f4, in
b) 1.Kf4-e3, that is something not so usual, here, of course, motivated mainly by Haaner chess properties.

Very complicated fairy problem from the point of view of used fairy elements. Looking at it, first one must
understand why the given double-mate picture is OK, and only then comes into question the quality of the composition.
Well, it shows only 4-fold echo and that's rather too little if someone isn't specialized echo lover.

Once upon a time, when I paid a visit to Peter, we began composing a problem. He set the theme - Shedey cycle with
two castlings as defences, and we started to choose the fairy elements. We tried paralysing units and got a scheme
with orthodox "ones" only. But subsequent tries to finish it showed us that is almost impossible to cope with
defences 1...Kd8, 1...Kf8. Of course, although it may seem unbelievably, after the keys black king should have 4
flights - and it is a bit too much... We offered the scheme to a few friendly composers, but no one was able to help us.
Thus we let it go and only shortly before Cyclone finishing we let ourselves to use chinese pieces too. And suddenly
we got an idea of changing the mates after abovementioned defences. It turned out it was possible! Despite the symmetry
of 3 Shedey cycle mates the scheme isn't symmetrical.

Juraj Lörinc, 1st HM 5th TT Chess Composition Microweb C 31.8.2000,
Notes: C022 Sent: 324,
fairy #2 can be found here (solution and comment above diagram).
Mlynka theme (and its sisters in the Slovak school like Brabec theme, Hannelius in defence motives, etc.)
is my old love and time to time I return to it. It was only natural that I announced a TT dedicated to it,
and that I took part in it. My aim was to popularize it and I was successful in it - at least Mlynka theme was brought
to the attention of Reto Aschwanden... My competing problem was successful,
probably because Vogtlaender chess offers really unusual defence motives and errors.
