My first is what a bouncer does if they think you're cool enough
My second is what my fourth does to your pain
My third is your surroundings on a grassy hill in summer
My fourth is taken to do my second to your pain
My fifth lives in places they do not own
My sixth is what you do with prize-winning animals

My first gathers liquid on to a surface
My second is where Leo kept going in Inception
My third is a branch of the US Military
My fourth is what you must do to solve this puzzle
My fifth is something shaped like a camper's home
My sixth is what well-off rude people may do to the less fortunate

Inspired by Five-words and Four-words but this puzzle is a little different as there are two things being described. They're very tightly related but they're not twins.

    $\begingroup$ I think you just changed the wrong line to your puzzle! A bouncer certainly admits people if he thinks they're cool enough. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @BaileyM See? There goes the internet absorbing my attention and inducing me to change the wrong line. Thanks. $\endgroup$ Commented May 22, 2015 at 15:26

    $\begingroup$ You got it despite my confusion between absorb and adsorb. I've fixed it now but good job succeeding over my inadequacies! $\endgroup$ Commented May 22, 2015 at 15:11
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for the formatting, I wasn't quite sure how to do that. And I would hardly call it an inadequacy- these must be hard to make! $\endgroup$
