Question

Playing off a genre invented (as far as I know) by P-ji ;).

Fishy distribution/“Woman’s weapon”

Not lost/Has penchant for

Bee task/Call from the floor

Mugiwara’s cry/Yoga necessity

H2O overdose/Swallow

Overcame yield stress/Blue

Decks the halls/Strong against undead

Hawk’s get-togethers/What captchas ward against

Diana’s claim/Pierre says it’s his

Throw in the towel/Rule

Spell / Sell

Hawk's get-together/what captchas ward against:

Roost / Robots?

Yay on the first, nay on the second...I tend to be pretty consistent with my 'formatting' ;)

I figured it'd be wrong as it didn't match the others.

Fishy distribution/“Woman’s weapon” - Poisson/poison (flamebirde)
Not lost/Has penchant for - found/fond (Pickett)
Bee task/Call from the floor - spell/sell (Molly Mae)
Mugiwara’s cry/Yoga necessity
H2O overdose/Swallow - drown/down (Thalia)
Overcame yield stress/Blue
Decks the halls/Strong against undead - holly/holy (flamebirde)
Hawk’s get-togethers/What captchas ward against
Diana’s claim/Pierre says it’s his
Throw in the towel/Rule - resign/reign (Pickett)

Opposite of hawk = dove


Diana is the Roman name, the Greeks call her something else

And...at some point it might be easier to work backwards ;)

Bouts/bots

Mugiwara is Japanese for "Strawhat". Like "Strawhat Luffy". Not sure what the answer is though.

Yep :).

Yeah, that's the reference...;)

[spoiler=Overcame yield stress/Blue]Flow/Low

Still not sure about Mugiwara/yoga... probably because I barely know anything about yoga.

Correct. Hint: you don't really need to know much about yoga other than what you'd take to a beginner class ;).

Well, I'm assuming the yoga part is referring to a mat. I don't know anything about Mugiwara though. . . All you can get by taking a letter away though is ma, at or mt.

That is what that part is referring to :). There are enough solved that you shouldn't have to know both parts to solve each one...

...the order of the lines is not random

I see. . .

mate/mat?

Superfluo(u)s

Ah!

I'm used to nakama meaning "friend" but another translation is "mate", which I didn't know until I checked just now. Also, I mostly only read manga ("One Piece" for those who didn't get the reference), and, if it's not already obvious, I prefer subs over dubs.
