Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

Lasses, ye did a braw job wi' the crypto. This is a combo of Jeopardy and Scavenger Hunt. Solve the clue and pose it in the form of a question, just like Jeopardy. Then ‘find’ in Ravelry, something which represents the answer. But ye canna find it in any of the post from the Outlander Fans Groups. 1 point will be awarded for each.
There is more than one possible answer for the B part to each of the 5 questions, but only one for the A part. The answers for this round of the games sponsored by the Chieftesses can be found in Section 3 of Voyager.

Example: Da cannibal is da friend or da foe.
a) Who is Robinson Crusoe?
b) http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/television-knitters/407523

1a. Once a guest during better times, his words were seldom spoken.
1b. the Rav link

2a. Is today the first? Lucky you! Call to me. Call to me on the Moor, but sometimes I'm an island.
2b. rav link

3a. What’s a bride to do? Here’s a hint…it’s in the book.
3b. rav link

4a. Boil, boil, toil and trouble. This one is all wet.
4b. rav link

5a. As the ‘first’ cat, I was named after another important ‘first’.
5b. rav link.

When ye solve the challenge, send it to highlandergames@ymail.com by midnight EST Monday, Oct. 19. Please put Jeopardy in the subject line. Also include your clan name (my name is Mordag), which clan you are from (I am from Clan Murray), and your rav name (I am abitknottie) so I can give ye the proper credit. Ye'll be gettin' 1 point for solving each of the clue and 1 point for the related rav link. If you are unable to solve any of the cryptos, but drop me a note saying that, ye'll still get a participation point.

Good luck, lasses!
