A Cool Character Is At A Loss

Question

Posted · Report post

In conflict they come together

If only to lash out

So time will surely tell that

The secret's left unlocked

But then you must, look to see

What the heck is lost

And keep it under wraps

Since it isn't ever over

Yet hold your middle ground

Do not enter in

To that which is most pure

As waste becomes of haste

Now as simple as, that may seem

You just can't give an inch

For the true skill of the flatterer

Is to never see the harm

Cause when he gives a damn

That's when all are dead and gone

Soldiers? I have a feeling this is one of the answers that the riddle is made to sound like but isn't really the answer.

belt?

wow, that's a really good fit t_l. almost wish I could just say yes and move on. but no.

protons and electrons?

hello Unicorn - another excellent fit in many ways. falls off a little towards the end. and was thinking this one could be a dud with few good guesses without finding the intended answer. but sorry, still not it.

Mickey Mouse?

real guess]War?

hey MiKi - ah peace at last. not crazy or violent am afraid. hope you give it another go.

Soldiers? I have a feeling this is one of the answers that the riddle is made to sound like but isn't really the answer.

there's no diversion on this one T, not an intentional one anyway. see where you;re coming from but not it.

XXX ?

well that would be a first from what I can witness from here. always so sharp witted am not totally sure I get your full meaning. at face value will have to say not it. am afraid it's nothing blush provoking. still think i might be missing something tho. going for coffee, that always helps.

Glass?

well hello JenJen - welcome to the Den and thanks for replying to my riddle. your answer is not the same as mine but hope you'll come back and give it another shot.

Sounds like somebody stole a body from the morgue cooler!

hey jpar - ha :lol: ha, am afraid this one has no sense of humor.

mayo

seems maybe you're a little whipped with your last couple? sorry, not it

funeral

and hello mohitj - a hearty BrainDen welcome to you as well. see where you're coming from but alas, this riddle lives on.

Am really (always) tempted to give a hint. Ughh, almost just did. Will try to think of one that's fair.

Ah, now I see how the spoiler tag on this site works!

My answer:

Bread dough (or possibly yeast)

You stir it into water, then it rises. If you peek at it then it will fall and you won't actually have good bread.

You can't hurry it rising, or you waste the batch.

Someone who "Gives a damn" and looks will be a "flatterer" by flattening it.

hey Shadlyn - welcome to BrainDen! have really enjoyed your contributions already. am working up a guess you can be sure. as for the topic at hand, your guess is not what I have in mind for this one. the way you are thinking, esp the flatterer bit is definitely my kind of style. for better or worse though, this riddle is not of my more typical style.

Thanks, I'm having a blast!

Pandora's Box.

But the flatterer doesn't apply.

Racists

"Do not enter into that which is most pure"

"In conflict they come together, only to lash out"

Some of the other lines work, too, but I don't think enough of them.

The cowboy squints upon his foe

The soldier aims at prey

When sleeper wakes, these shades are thrown

Protection's gone away

Between these guards, the globe, your eye

May wash self clean with tear

They'll shade the things you dare not spy

These eyelids, hanging near

hello - good to see you again - and so soon! do see where both fit in many ways but as I mentioned, this one takes a different approach.

When sleeper wakes, these shades are thrown

Protection's gone away

Between these guards, the globe, your eye

May wash self clean with tear

plasmid, mon ami - is it the name which begs pronounciation with a long e or the poetry that always makes me think of french with you. lovely in both insight and verse, mais pas correcte.

The letter 'C'

inspired and correct indeed. have to run but will add excuses later. nice job fabpig!

A Cool Character Is At A Loss - Cat - at = C

In conflict they come together

If only to lash out - Clash - lash

So time will surely tell that

The secret's left unlocked - Clock - lock

But then you must, look to see

What the heck is lost - Check - heck

And keep it under wraps

Since it isn't ever over - Cover - over

Yet hold your middle ground

Do not enter in - Center - enter

To that which is most pure

As waste becomes of haste - Chaste - haste

Now as simple as, that may seem

You just can't give an inch - Cinch - inch

For the true skill of the flatterer

Is to never see the harm - Charm - harm

Cause when he gives a damn

That's when all are dead and gone - Care - are

Since this style is so different than a typical WAI (what am i), feel it's a little unfair. Have now done up to C so a few have seen at least two of these types and knew if I announced this one as "different" it might give an advantage to some. what to do - no hard feelings?

Absolutely not meant in any way to take anything away from the fabulously brilliant fabpig. Well done my friend (no trichinosis here).

I remember when you put those up and it seems really obvious now. But then everything seems obvious in hindsight... But good riddle, pg!
