Forsaken

Question

As promised or as threatened, even I cant tell for sure.

Solve the couplets below then a twist will tell you more.

Spare me, please, take it easy before you again run out.

A possible wartime requirment, to serve the troops no doubt.

Terribly annoying maybe but it's best to keep still.

Recover all the quicker, with me you surely will.

Watch and watched too closely, yet into this you fell.

Nothing from the looks of it, danger can this spell.

It's best to take stock, e'en the toughest days.

Better times ahead, but for now its me that pays.

Nose is bent out of joint, so maybe its like these.

Frustrated expectations, insult me won't you please.

To the showers, to your room, to bed, and then to sleep.

On a mission, flying, away but heaven can you reap?

After my last one I've still got nothing else for 4 ... not that makes as much sense, anyway! :lol:

rising? moving?

no, and now fear I may have steered this ship into the shoals with my responses to Wilson.

Ah well, no worries! Maybe more later today or tomorrow ... many things to do today that don't involve lurking here! :P:lol:

I take it 2, 4, and 6 are the remaining ones?

Seeing another riddle like this one makes me want to make one... maybe when I get a longer chance.

2. Cast? Rest?

4. Invest? Recede? Trust?

6. Retire? Dream? Eve?

Thanks for another stab at it. These are not what you'll need for the next step. The one for #4 is getting somewhat back on track towards where this one started.

Yeah, man, I missed this one. Sorry, our posts crossed. And sorry, none of the above. #2 has been guessed but dont mind at all if you want to keep at it.

If I was stubborn I'd keep at 2, but though I'm often stubborn, I'm not stubborn when I've invested little and I'm sleepy. ^^ So I decided to stop being lazy and look at some previous guesses, and saw that some of mine were already guessed.

4. Save, medicare, frugal, deduct

6. Age or death, duty!?

I just remembered there was one of your riddles I was stubborn at figuring out... I'ma have to find that one again sometime.

Spare me, please, take it easy before you again run out.

A possible wartime requirment, to serve the troops no doubt.

tank, time, ration

Terribly annoying maybe but it's best to keep still.

Recover all the quicker, with me you surely will.

cast, crutches, straightjacket, tourniquet, splint

Watch and watched too closely, yet into this you fell.

Nothing from the looks of it, danger can this spell.

trap, trance

It's best to take stock, e'en the toughest days.

Better times ahead, but for now its me that pays.

invest, retirement fund / recession, Account, Interest, Sell, job or career, Savior, Savings, Bonds, Invest? Recede? Trust?, Save, medicare, frugal, deduct

Nose is bent out of joint, so maybe its like these.

Frustrated expectations, insult me won't you please.

cross? broken?, snub

To the showers, to your room, to bed, and then to sleep.

On a mission, flying, away but heaven can you reap?

routine, dreams, Ascend, Progression, Ascent, rising? moving, Climb, Ascetic, grounded, Chaste, Training, Meditation, Retire? Dream? Eve?, Age or death, duty

#4: loan (or credit card, or your parents), a lock (or less likely barrel)

#6: midnight jailbreak, or prayer, or drift, or climbing a wooden hill

Hey plasmid-thanks for the recap. Makes it tough to say no to your guesses but I must. What makes it doubly tough is your second guess above for #4; brilliant.

#6.....retreat...???

#4.......tab / tally....???

Good morning (still?) EDM. Not what I'm looking for those nor what you need for the second part of the puzzle. Please keep'm comin'.
