3. Virgin suggests Mary to me, but that doesn't give anything. Marie might lead to AMARIE though.
6. You're very nearly there, and you don't need an L.

3. Try a synonym rather than an example.

1. Frozen food brand unveils her, after a second vowel shift.
2. Prudish and inflamed? She isn’t half a muddle!
3. Fateful lady: a virgin, she, however aberrant.
BELLADONNA: Mournful song changes note and Italian grandmother loses head for her.
5. Regret purchase? From what we hear, yes – or does she?
IRIME: She’s no Cyclops, we hear, and a French sea swishes around her.
7. She falls into deception and chaos.
8. Swallowing back metal, sailors mingle for her.
9. Something the Cheshire Cat might say, quite truthfully. There’s spin, though, before she’s revealed.

BELLADONNA is correct.

EDIT: And so is IRIME.

2ND EDIT: I have edited clue 1. This frozen food brand began before the 70's, and is still in existence. I just associated it with a lot of TV ads in the 70's.

3. Donnamira? Donna is italian for 'lady' and 'mira' could mean 'fateful'.

It IS Donnamira. But if 'mira' means 'fateful,' I've never heard of it, and 'donna' is not an element.

It's NORN for 'fateful lady' (mythical females connected to fate) plus A MAID (I think Galadriel guessed 'maid.') 'Aberrant' is the anagram indicator.

Yes, it's sisters again. I actually wrote this one before the other.

No, not irritated. I learn heaps of stuff from people's obscure references on this thread. Both Tolkien and not Tolkien-related.

And it seems that Findus are still very much around, or the name is. I just don't buy much frozen food.

Yes, and note that only half of her is muddled, and the other half isn't.

Also Ruby sounds like RUE BUY - or does it? (Because the name itself sounds like RUE-BEE).

And the last one is Ivriniel, but if we remove deception, we get IVRIN, and it doesn't fit with the rest of the clue in any capacity.

It does. It's just the trickiest clue in the set.

See if you can locate the word that indicates IVRIN.

Nope. It takes me a while to put in the codes to highlight the red letter in every remaining clue, and the letters and the ???'s. Especially since I am now long as well as short sighted and sometimes squinting at the letters. The time indicates time posted, not time of starting to write the post.

Falls of Ivrin, indeed. Clumsy wench, that Ivriniel.

Over to you!

EDIT: The Yavanna one was kind of the leftovers of this one, because I couldn't fit any Ainur into this one. I had to finish the Yavanna password with some really obvious sister pairs, though. I like this one better, I think, although I did quite like my Van the Man clue, (a throwback to my youth).

1. A confused announcer swallows a note, for her.
2. He is an IARPA program
3. He is an Italian city.
4. Wander backwards, without a note? It's novel in reverse, for her
5. She is knowledgeable, in turmoil, with a direction.

Yea, that clue was inspired by G55's puzzle a while ago.

1. A confused announcer swallows a note, for her.
2. He is an IARPA program
TURIN: He is an Italian city.
MORWEN: Wander backwards, without a note? It's novel in reverse, for her
5. She is knowledgeable, in turmoil, with a direction.

Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
A: A confused announcer swallows a note, for her.
MAEGLIN: He is an IARPA program
TURIN: He is an Italian city.
MORWEN: Wander backwards, without a note? It's novel in reverse, for her
D: She is knowledgeable, in turmoil, with a direction.

And the person #5 didn't die, as far as I know. I could be wrong, though....

5. NERDANEL! Learned + N.

Also known as the Wise, I think? (Although knowledge and wisdom are different things).

Knowledgeable refers to 'learned' part of the clue, not her epithet.

A: A confused announcer swallows a note, for her.
MAEGLIN: He is an IARPA program
TURIN: He is an Italian city.
MORWEN: Wander backwards, without a note? It's novel in reverse, for her
NERDANEL: She is knowledgeable, in turmoil, with a direction.

Hint for #1

Use the solutions as you have them and what you know about them and the last solution shall come to you.

Mothers and sons, so AREDHEL.

Can a LEADER be an announcer? (I've a feeling this idea has come up on this thread before).

And good old German note H again, duly swallowed.
