Acrophobia 24 - Be the Prophesier! and the winner is .... !

Recommended Posts

i've had a hell of a morning. one of our cars was broken into, but not much important was taken. But, 2 other neighbors had their cars broken into and 1 had their car stolen. I just don't have the time before I leave for work in an hour, so I'll do everything in the morning. Besides, I only have 10 submissions...for the last round.. so, i'll post around 10am EDT tomorrow

thank you everyone for the well wishes!  :grouphug: They haven't found our neighbor's car yet, but everything is fine, it just hasn't happened in our neighborhood before so it's a shock, plus it makes me super nervous. i haven't been feeling well lately with my allergies or whatever I'm coming down with, and I was up tossing and turning all night because of that and paranoid about my cars. it wasn't fun, hopefully i get some sleep tonight.

 

I'm starting to do the voting and stuff. I'll be posting soon.

First: 10. Power.  Money.  Throne.  Charm.  Lie brazenly.  Naturally!  ("naturally" reminds me of Abbot & Costello, Who's on first)

Second: 2. Played Mercilessly to crushing loss. Befitting noose! (fitting crush in their was great)

Third: 6. Preserve misplaced trust. Coin = largesse. Buy nobility. (keep up appearances)

Fourth: 3. Perilously mounting the chaos ladder beckons nemesis. (who is the nemesis?)

 

Honorable mention for #8 and #9. Consequences of dishonesty.

 

It was tough choosing.

1st.    4. Postulate much...teach Cat's look-alike bold necessities   I just love this one, sometimes I am so blind to possibilities

2nd.   3. Perilously mounting the chaos ladder beckons nemesis    My alternate entry used nemesis, so I love this one.

3rd.    1. Patience makes trout catching lord barely noticeable.   I also worked the patience angle.

4th.     2. Played Mercilessly to crushing loss. Befitting noose!   A prophecy ignored, I think!

  A good game, everyone!  Congratulations to you all!  I have a long history of losing the lead in the last round, so I'm not holding my breath for a win.  :D

I've almost done both but hesitate and waffle... when you have something like "look-alike" is it more appropriate to have it serve only an L or should it be an LA (or can it be both)?

I think it can be acceptable either way. Hyphens can turn me against an entry but look-alike seems perfectly reasonable to me. You often see it written without the hyphen, which I think is technically wrong but that just serves to point out the acceptability of it as one word.

I have more of a problem with symbols that are not punctuation  :leaving:
