3 - Poor man! Have been riotously incontinent. You’re missing virility’s wonders.

Author: Count Balerion - 1 = 1

Author: rocksniffer - 1+1 +1+2+3+3 + 2 = 13

 

5 - Wife?!! Don't assume blissful consummation, fool!

Author: honeyed chicken - 1+1 +3+3+1 + 2 = 11

I have a terrible admission to make.

I read clue 1 and said to myself, who the hell is Pinniped? If I don't know the character, I'm not going to vote for the clue.

Duh.

Duh.

A pinniped is a seal. Since Asha wasn't present at the wedding, Euron used a seal as a stand-in for Asha. The entry is based on the idea that Asha is implying that Erik is now married to the seal and that the poor animal made a terrible (though probably not long-lasting) mésalliance.

Pinniped should have won the round by a very large margin.

In my not-so-humble opinion.

ROUND FIVE VOTING

 

1 - Pigs' object: ingesting Dolorous. Stop munching the ancient books, dude.

2 - Position overrun - invaders DEAD!!!! Send men to aid Brothers' desperation!

3 - 'Longclaw' giving whiners nothing expected! Many anticipate gutting Snow's policies.

4 - Lording got wearisome. Now electing master again. Good start, Pomegranate!

5 - Prunes again, regrettably. New post infested, housing gibbering, vexatious spearwives.

6 - Lucky Grenn, we're now eating mice and Grenn's seemed portly.

7 - Pal, army’s rampant. Now promoted - impossible, huh? - garrisoning violent spearwives...

8 - Patrol order issued: distancing’s safest method to avoid bloody death!

 

Voting to be completed by Thursday 14th May at 8pm UK time (BST)

New assignment coming shortly

ROUND SIX

 

Arya Stark to Sansa Stark

Ah the squabbling sisters. Let’s imagine Arya finds out where Sansa is while in Braavos. She can’t depart as she is involved in the whole faceless training situation, so she sends a message. What does she write?

Yes, I looked it up afterwards, that’s why I said ‘duh’. So sorry!

OK, now that I'm over sulking because of my poor showing last round (meanies! WAH!), and jolly well knowing I don't have a hope this round with all the brilliant entries, here goes:

5 (this should win by a landslide)

6

4

I'd completely forgot about the seal stand-in, and thought it was a reference to krakens. "They're molluscs, not pinnipeds!" Duh to that, too.

Nice variety of ideas presented in this group of entries.

1st) 3 - 'Longclaw' giving whiners nothing expected! Many anticipate gutting Snow's policies.

2nd) 7 - Pal, army’s rampant. Now promoted - impossible, huh? - garrisoning violent spearwives...

3rd) 1 - Pigs' object: ingesting Dolorous. Stop munching the ancient books, dude.

I thought it meant "squid". I should have looked it up. That's a clever entry.

The first acro. is a nice blend of vowels and consonants; the second is ALL consonants; the third is vowel heavy. Something for everyone! :lmao:
