# Revenge [cryptic] rebus puzzles

Enjoyed these did you? Felt they were a bit too easy? The rebuses are feeling bitter about their loss, and they will only concede defeat if you break their puzzle:

Wait a second... they've sent a note as well! It seems to be a kind of disjointed story.

When the only place that's natural dies,
Once we undo the damage mixed with and in a large vessel we'll produce noise.
Remembering that similar and up to a point chilli is well kept with a secret.
During any animal's sleep it's embarrassed that it, without sleeping, is uncertain.

From a scarcely populated place any people having fun were envied except by those with a good first turn
In a private book, which I discovered, called 'Snide: where to cook' was yesterday.
Realising that shied away, we disrupt. The book conceals a envelope!
So we never thought to sanctify the book without me or a priest, named 'int'.
That the disappearance there was of a weird beheaded kind of thread was key.

Oooh... and there's a final rebus under that note:

Can you win this time? Or have the rebuses finally beaten you? Good luck!

Note: the flavor text is just that, for flavor. There is not hidden information inside that. Obviously the rebuses and the note are important though. Too many rebus puzzles is the next one.

Edit: sorry but the fourth rebus isn't really a rebus. Kind of. And also six should be two words.

Could be

First letter of each line gives WORD FIRST/ FIRST WORD. Which could be either Revenge/Enjoyed/When

I suppose that last rebus is:

Sum up, 714 being the sum of the numbers on the left.

The rest have me baffled.

This might be a bit out there (this is my first rebus puzzle),

but I've darned convinced myself that the sixth one is dinner. Backwords e is the shwa in the IPA.

It likely ain't the intention of the puzzle-maker, but just one more idea for y'all!
