Hrrm! Since this one's a nonfiction trivia, I'm guessing we may be talking about an actual book that was locked in a drawer for fifteen years. Maybe a posthumously published work, or the like?

The wyrmling wasn't counting heads right, apparently!
I've frequented moa twice so I'll try to fill that.

The third clue is giving me definite Doctor Suess vibes, but none of his posthumous books I've tried have done the trick.
if someone can spot me a party hat I can help add one for theclue
many thanks, lex!

only three more moa frequenters!
The third clue kinda reminds me of Shakespeare. You know like how a lot of people talk about the insults he writes?
I just put in a bunch of posthumous book titles. None of them worked
The Master and Margarita
A Confederacy of Dunces
The Millennium Trilogy
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
A Death in the Family
The Metamorphosis
The Trial

Dished the sickest of burns before memes, 15 years ago...? Something to do with 2004, or prior?
Dancing around Hemingway’s Moveable Feast, or anything Emily Dickinson.

Tried Kafka variations. Jane Austen might’ve had a few, but I’m not sure if those were non-fiction. :(

Raided the armory, got 4 Moa repairs, then dumped my inventory back in. There's several party hats in there, we need 1 more Moa regular!
Hmm I think it could be also related to 'rap battles' which occurred between poets.
In my opinion second clue would be candle/oil lamp which would fit it, as it was used before electricity.
Probably not helpful, but...

Looked up Shakespeare + round table and got this.
T.H. White’s Once and Future King nearly fit the bill. 🤦‍♀️ But that’s fiction, again.

We thinking too far ahead going with posthumous things though?
