1. Note, more lowly he sounds.
2. Befuddled elephant sings differently for him.
EVENSTAR: Events a royal initially disturbs, ever so slightly, reveal her.
SHARKEY: Jaws's unsung spying organ? Not just a hungry predator, though. Actually evil.
5. Send the remainder back! Surround the pen fluid! Adjust very slightly for him.
6. Elver's parent sings at this time, although a little out of sync, for her.
7. He joins Elizabeth Windsor, once one jumps out to the front.

EEL is right, but not E (wrong note) or now (wrong time expression).

No to Elenwe, though. (Also no proof/indication that Elenwe is an epesse, AFAIK).

And 5 is Stinker, where there is INK surrounded by STER, which is almost REST backwards.

So we don't need synonyms, we just rearrange ELEPHANT with a different note?

If it is assumed that S is not the first letter, we have 'WISE'.


Wait.....

Elizabeth Windsor is indeed Queen Elizabeth II, but if you want to know how she comes into the clue, find a picture of a British post box on Google Images.

Well, maybe that's what you need!

It stands for 'Elizabeth Regina.'

It means it was put there during Elizabeth's reign. The post over here is called the Royal Mail, and officially owned by the Queen, I think.

There are a few post boxes with GR on them, put there in King George's reign.

Here's the next one:


1. She is made of three elements in disarray.
2. In confusion, praise a dwarf, for him.
3. Endless element in turmoil, inside a ruse. See him!
4. Adhesive, linger! Hear it for her.
5. An unsung cry returns for him.
6. Diminish an artificial sweetener for him (with slight adjustment).
7. A confused Rohirric warrior gains direction, for him.
8. Chaotically, a small herb reveals her.
9. He is made of a turbulence and a bird.
