    Alliteration Alphabet Challenge

    OK!

    Here's the criteria:
    Use the next letter in succession as described by the alphabet, and create an alliterative passage consisting of 3 lines or more, using ONLY that letter to begin each word, hyphens are allowed (sea-like, pre-existent), but no joining words unless it matches the letter you are using for your alliteration of course (and, is, was).

    Let's see if we can manage to create the whole alphabet. Kudos to anyone who takes on X,Y and Z.

    A

    Alliterations aren't always annoying, although, avoiding all awkwardness after an alliteration almost always appals. Advice: accept awkwardness as an advertisement, as an amplified aptitude among art amateurs.
    Ambiguously askew alliterations attract attention and almost always ascend, arriving at an accusation. Absurd acquisitions about artistic authenticity amount again...
    Anyhow, about art..
    Abstracts attract another artistic avenue and allure artistically-avid adults. Acquiring artwork anticipates an announcement aligning an avid amateur as an absolute, an Adonis (as analogously abroad as art-speak allows), acceptance and assurance, almost as alleviating as an applause!
    Actually, anyone as asinine as above, and aims at admiration among attendees at an Art affair aggravates anyone's arsenal. Alas (an Artesian accent), another anonymous assassination around Abstract artwork achieves an amazingly appropriate applause.
    After all, accidents are accidents. An anxious announcement awkwardly absconds all alive and able artistic attendants, 'AUREVOIRE!!'

    I'm not sure if this qualifies, but here is something for the letter B.

    Busy B-Nonsense

    Big bang's botched, but breakfast bubbles.
    Boyfriends better buy bright baubles.
    Bees be busy by begonias
    Beating butterflies by breakfast.

    Consider consciousness. Constant conditioned confusion. Can communities co-exist contentedly? Complainers cause consternation. Cheerfulness creates companionship.

    Cheers!

    By the way, if anyone is worried about writing one only to find someone else was also writing one at the same time, and they post it before you (or simultaneously) wasting your time and effort; just post a reply with the letter you are working on to 'book it' as pending beforehand. Then when you are done edit your post, pasting your alliteration from notepad (or whatever text editor you prefer).



    I have a Q passage in mind so I hope we get that far!

    Doing discussion distractions during dictionary deliberations,
    defers dusty dispositions deploring doldrums.
    Different dances disengage dim directions,
    don't discontinue daring discernment.

    Remember this, my friends: there are no such things as bad plants or bad men. There are only bad cultivators.

    Everyone endlessly eggs edgeways eagerly enjoying ellegies,
    estimating esteemed echelons entering enduring ecstasty.
    Euphoric empiric exodus eludes english engines,
    especially effected enquiries erred erelong.
    Eventually, emulated endearing elegance eschews
    every empty earmarked entry.

    Farmer's favourite fowls face fate. Flapping furiously, fifteen form feeble flocks fleeing fruitlessly for freedom.
    Foolishly five fly forward. Feathers fall, feet fly, fillets flip, farm-hands fetch fasteners for filling.
    Foreman Frank feels fifty-five, face flustering, forgetful features forming full faced frowns.
    Friday's focus finally finds face. Fortunately farm-hand's fever fizzles - falling forty Fahrenheit.
    Fumbling feet flick feathers feeling for footing. Fuzziness fades.
    Feet following feet flaunt facetiously, feigning fatal furnace falls for fun (frivolously foolhardy).
    Far from furious furnace flames, Frank finds five frost-free fridges fit for filing freshly farmed fast food fillets.
    Finito!

    gagging gloriously gives goers gaming goals
    grinning greatly galvinises glamourised grades
    growing gladly generalises gripping graces
    glowing gold gladly gards gentlemen's grants
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    Oh I couldn't retain any integrity if I did X. I would have to use a dictionary!
    So, I might as well try now just to see...
    [CUT!]
    X is truly horrid.

    And H is up next people!

    (Fortunately time is well and truly on my side before X breaks my spirit)
