I'm not a BrainDen riddler


Question

Though you may search for many days

You'll find me plain and never glazed

Unless a juvie, much like Bart

Derides the dean and calls it "art"

I'll keep the peace by keeping out

All those who aren't your pals, devout

If sentenced for the crimes of others

Defy me, send a file to brother

I guide the ways that people romp

Ergo, the lotus won't get stomped

And I'm the reason wood's forsaken

You'd better keep this pudding shaken

Mrs P heads East, as John B West

They're well apart (I'll do my best)

I'm quite flattered, for I see,

You've written a riddle just for me.

Of all the riddlers you wrote about,

You didn't leave the good ones out.

True, and note we've also got

Peace*out and fileobrother here

But now these names have formed a plot

So which way do these clues all steer?

We are all riddle writers

That's the distractor, not the real answer.

(My theme is writing "I'm not a ..." riddles with an obvious answer in the title and a covert answer.)

hugemonkey or rookie1? They all write different styles of puzzles, and play nicely together.

I wasn't heading down that path, just writing a regular What Am I riddle and noticed that a lot of the names could be incorporated in clues. Knowledge about Brainden is not required to answer the riddle (just to get a chuckle at the clues).

Now that's getting super close, but doesn't quite explain the lines about wood being forsaken or needing to be shaken.

But I get the feeling you're about to get the answer with the next guess.

more specific, like the Berlin Wall? Or the Great Wall of China?

I think I just killed me train of thought... *impass*

Although I'm tempted to just say that "wall" is the answer, these two lines would stick out

And I'm the reason wood's forsaken

You'd better keep this pudding shaken

And a wall wasn't really what I initially had in mind as far as guiding people's steps with

I guide the ways that people romp

Ergo, the lotus won't get stomped

(although it could certainly also work)

Path seems to fit those parts, but then not the other parts to me
