Forsaken

Question

Posted · Report post

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?

progress, but i don't think that's right....I have a feeling it might have something to do with the seasons? starting w/ spring - shower; summer - room(doing something fun/games); Fall - going to bed(double meaning(also getting ready for winter)); Winter - sleep - pretty self-explanatory

Very well thougt out and quite plausible. Unfortunately, it's not where I'm coming from. Please keep at it.

"survive" or "death"...it makes me feel like preparing for death..."accept(ing)" or maybe "naive"

Straight?

I'm really running out of inspiration for the last one. Keep coming back to it but still haven't come up with a good guess.

It's got to be SENT?

The stats are in my favour.

Wilson's got the last one so hopefully the next step will reinvigorate you.

Congratulations, quite well done, complete is now the lot.

But one thing still remains, to the answers that you've got.

This one's a little different, that I must confess.

But something's still the same, I can say, as both the rest.

ration, splint, trance, dividend, snub, sent

That you don't really need those extra n's...

Rations - n = Ratios

Splint - n = Split

Trance - n = Trace

Dividend - n = Devided

Snub - n = Sub

Sent - n = Set

So my first guess for a final answer would be Mathematics

Wow DD, right on right away as to the next step. Did the title give you any help? As for the final answer, the trace bit doesnt quite jive.

no, I didn't even get it until you mentioned it. And even then I had to read it twice

:)

As for my "math" answer, I thought that the "split" would be the problem. A "trace" is used in linear algebra so it is a math term, although not probably widely known. I'll keep thinking for a better answer.

I guess that works, not what I'm thinking of though. If this draws out I'll concede hopefully before it gets too anticlimactic.

Cooking? I think all of these could be terms used in cooking.

Now that's a different direction than I anticipated on and an interesting one at that. Can see how the six could all be relevent to your guess. The word I'm looking for is more synonymous with each (ok, if you combine the last two).

Fractions? Fits a tiny bit better with the 'trace' clue, but I have a feeling that you have a better answer in mind.

Sorry, mine's no better than that.

the key = forsake "N" so ratio, split, trace, divided, sub, set - DudleyDude

And the final answer - fraction - DudleyDude
