Will you be able to id an avatar or alias on the forum if its hidden in riddle, rhyme or limerick?

Clues can be presented in any way as long as it is kept forum friendly and fun indicate whether you have an alias or avatar in mind.

Alias >> who am I?

I'm not a beggar,
wearing diamonds and gold....
you won't find me outside,
left alone in the cold ....

A castle's my dwelling
about me stories are told ...
I'm the first in line to succeed
the frail and the old.

Next one

Avatar >> Who am I?

Let me tell you my dear friend
I am absolutely stunned ....
that by most your fair maidens
I am instantly shunned

Under the cover of darkness
my countenance concealed ...
so why the abruptness
when my true nature's revealed

Another easy one ...

Avatar>> Who am I?

When they really don't think so
they tell you I can fly...
What they do not consider
is that I just might go by

I change with every occasion
but I will always remain...
in my favourite location
through wind, storm and rain

Nice thread/quiz Spotted Cat
Here's one ...but I'm not sure how to copy and paste an avvie
BTW avatar is an Indian word for a re-incarnation

I'm a morning person
from the other half
But at my English
you better not laugh!

And don't you mistake me
for the Spotted one
Coz she' just stationary
And I'm on the run

Well done Mathys - and i thot I was being devious
SC how about (like the Taradiddle quiz) guesses must include the reasoning

Let me do mine

I'm a morning person - am (anne-marie
from the other half - hemisphere north
But at my English
you better not laugh! -a-m is trying really hard and doin a stellar job at this

And don't you mistake me
for the Spotted one - spotted cat/leopard
Coz she' just stationary
And I'm on the run - moving image of a cheetah

Sorry guys....with the time difference I left you hanging on this one.....and went to bed.

Ok - with this one

You might think I'm Aussie
but then you'd be so wrong
My penchant for cleanliness
Has made my arms strong

Don't ruffle my feathers
Don't vent your spleen
Or you'll be off to London
To see the queen


Some clues ( as I have tried to be as deceptive as possible - otherwise I'll give it away)

The reference is to the Alias, the avvie - and not just the pic used the info too, and......
No I won't say more now maybe later if no one gets it.

@Jaz. Even if you can't solve every line. Just indicate what made you think of your answer.

Maybe you Saffies may need some dinkydie Aussies to help you with this one.

Good going Rusky

Brummie - Well done

Just want to add ... if you had the right answer and do not want to post the next riddle or anything else to confuse us, it's OK.
To keep the game going, anyone who is ready with one to post, may do so ...

Okay I'm going to sign off soon - so here's anonther

Splash of Drambuie
in a lot of Scotch
twist of lemon
just hits the spot

Let's raise a toast
to a wandering pachyderm
No nails in his head
he's just a bird(er) who got a worm

Well done CC (thats Curious Canadian not Cardboard Cutout :D )
@RustyJusty I almost hit the floor when you pitched in with BGS. Now you see why. :lol:

This is a cocktail called Rusty Nail

We're wishing you the best in your new job RJ. Your avvie is an ellie and you are going away. Plus you've sort of moved around JHB, Eastern Cape and Vaal.

No nails in his head
Rusty Nail minus Nail = Rusty
he's just a bird(er) who got a worm

He's Just = y's JUST = JUSTY! (phonetically speaking)
And you are an avid birder and your KZN job's the worm

I'm jumping the gun before I really get stuck into work

I live in the Wildtuin
But Kruger's not my spot
Coz here its cold when its warm
And when its hot it's not

I cashed in my cheques
An threw in the towel
I now have "thick skin"
But my name ends with a false vowel

But Kruger's not my spot (another park in the uk)
Coz here its cold when its warm
And when its hot it's not (UK weather)

I cashed in my cheques
An threw in the towel (3 month trip)
I now have "thick skin" (Avvie is now an ellie)
But my name ends with a false vowel (y)
