hey t_mo - that's it! was worried about this one. felt I had to make these couplets a little less definitive or once the theme came out they would be too easy. wasn't sure I had left enough there to get this one. can I ask which you got first?Spoiler for #7
hey Thalia - right on, well done!
So #1 would beSpoiler for
I seem to have missed the add ons at the end. Oops.
not thatSpoiler for #8
oh, that's clever but not the answer you'll need in the end.Spoiler for #8
not it, the first one makes a stronger case but think in total there's a better fit.Spoiler for #6

oh no, another very sharp guess. cant quite justify the second half of the second line (the loss bit) imo. again, great guess.Spoiler for 6.
hey hey LJ - not what I have in mind for this one but certainly see where you're coming from. Good thoughts, both.Spoiler for takin a shot

Hey Dej Mar - funny, a great fit, but there was no intended 9th couplet with an answer similar in theme to the eight. the ninth is meant as a clue to a puzzle involving the eight answers resulting in a "final answer". the long lost friend I can now say refers to MrsP, a cohort here who's riddles often had answers like my theme for the eight couplets. if you care to, check out Unexpected Returns (my favorite) or any of the other links in the OP to get a better idea of the format of this one.Spoiler for #9?
'fraid not what I'm after for this oneSpoiler for #5 & #6?
yeah, not it but get what you mean.Spoiler for Not it for #8, as it works only somewhat for half the clue
