For the new page:

1. Relief for flatulence? Mix it first, if you want to see her!
2. She mixes a spinning circle and a lair.
3. Number is slightly shaken, but does not apply for her.
4. Vend and eat, she says.
HALETH: Madcap prince meets an old character, and she appears.
6. I am both objective and mirrored. And angered and confused. As she will attest.
7. Hautboys, note, mingle for her, losing nothing but gaining direction.

ME is right. SI isn't. You need a word for angered.

Sorry. ME is a correct element, but you need to do something with it.

IRI is not a correct element.

C: I was pondering the various Sindarin names beginning with 'Sell' - er, I mean, 'Cel' - but stopped when I remembered the hard C.

I should have thought further. Sell-an'-Dine, or rather, CELANDINE BRANDYBUCK?

Not Widow Rumble, though a good idea.

The answer is a name made from two cryptic elements.

There is no first name beginning with letter W other than her...

I mean, that's clearly not true*, because the clue is there. I looked at Windfola, but apparently Eowyn's horse is male. I think Wind as the first cryptic element is probably a good bet.

*Edit: Although it could be a surname or epesse; or have they been ruled out?

(Nor is 'Widow' a first name... )

Melian was at one point called WENDELIN, which could be a hearalike for "Wind dealing [with]". And amusingly Morwen attracted the nickname Witchwife, which sadly I don't think can fit.

Not Wendelin or any of the above.

WIND is a correct element, but there is another element, and you have to mix the two of them.

What's another word for relief?

Something you'd apply to an affliction for relief/ease.

The stuff you might apply.

Thank you! That was a nice set of wenches, spanning all sorts of texts and Ages.



1. Violet dwarf retreats from rooster’s call in the north - aye, in the north.
2. In sonars, ill-advised choice of weapon.
3. Angry, yes for one short street it would cut anything.
4. Adorn yourself with glamour, one for naught and all around, with a grain (or half) of salt.
5. Round nearly a Numenorian’s legume.
6. Without his bundle, Elvis Presley can see quite far.
7. “I can stow!” - or so they said in the north-eastern parts.
8. Spam the right god with chaos, and it will show you the way.
9. An organ and a horse, at sea and afloat.

Shield

I will guess EARENDIL for 9. It has EAR and he is kind of at sea and afloat.

No horse element, though - except Vingilot as a metaphor - but the clue seems to suggest an actual word element meaning horse.

"Ear" is correct, but you need the horse element for the rest of the word. What are some synonyms for "horse"?

4. Adorn yourself with glamour, one for naught and all around, with a grain (or half) of salt.
5. Round nearly a Numenorian’s legume.
6. Without his bundle, Elvis Presley can see quite far.
7. “I can stow!” - or so they said in the north-eastern parts.
8. Spam the right god with chaos, and it will show you the way.
9. EARRAME: An organ and a horse, at sea and afloat.

Wondering if 3 is either DIAMOND or ADAMANT, which will both cut anything and which both contain MAD.

...

DIAMOND has MAD, I (AYE = YES) and a short version of ONE. Street? Is there a Diamond Street in Valinor, perhaps?

"Mad" is not the right element. In fact, you're taking extra steps here.

"Street", however, is - and you need this element to complete the word.
