The answers to clues on the first page fit in the blanks, with highlighted and unhighlighted blanks corresponding to consonants and vowels, respectively:
Adolescent = TEENAGER Cattle feed = ALFALFA Literally, “empty hand” = KARATE “Stop it!” = ENOUGH Watering hole = TAVERN Actress Anne = HATHAWAY Waste away = EMACIATE Spot for a spit = ROTISSERIE City visited by Dorothy = EMERALD Untrue statement = FALSITY Hamlet or Macbeth, e.g. (2 words) = LEAD ROLE Okay to down = EDIBLE Pocahontas locale = COLONY Confused or disorderly = TUMULTUOUS Genetic mutation or sorting algorithm = INSERTION Last longer = OUTLIVE Beginner or newbie = NEOPHYTE
The answers to the clues on the second page are in alphabetical order:
Fever condition = DELIRIUM Exhaust or weaken = ENERVATE Like Haile Selassie, LoLa Monroe, or Zahara Jolie-Pitt = ETHIOPIAN Deep-fried ball = FALAFEL Cleanliness = HYGIENE Unwanted entrance = INTRUSION "...nothing to fear but fear ______" = ITSELF Lustful desire = LIBIDO Grand and noble = LORDLY Arise (from) = ORIGINATE Result = OUTCOME Component with colored bands = RESISTOR One way to tie = STALEMATE Bird country? = TURKEY Action done when removing shoes or a corset = UNLACE It's at the end of a rainbow? = VIOLET Old british greeting (2 words) = WHAT HO
Given that the consonants are highlighted, we probably want to look at those, and indeed, these words can be paired up with the answers on the first page so that the consonants are in reverse order:
TEENAGER -> ORIGINATE ALFALFA -> FALAFEL KARATE -> TURKEY ENOUGH -> HYGIENE TAVERN -> ENERVATE HATHAWAY -> WHAT HO EMACIATE -> OUTCOME ROTISSERIE -> RESISTOR EMERALD -> DELIRIUM FALSITY -> ITSELF LEAD ROLE -> LORDLY EDIBLE -> LIBIDO COLONY -> UNLACE TUMULTUOUS -> STALEMATE INSERTION -> INTRUSION OUTLIVE -> VIOLET NEOPHYTE -> ETHIOPIAN
The first letters of the words on the left spell out TAKE THE REFLECTION, and the first letters of the words on the right spell out OF THE WORD ILLUSIVE. The solution is therefore a word whose consonants are VSLL in that order, and the only word which fits this pattern is VISUALLY.
(note: the Apprentice version of this puzzle was called “Professor Layton and the Heated Neonatal Irises of Europe”. This phrase's consonants form a palindrome.)
