# Who/What am I? (The Five Ws)

I'm what stands between your family.
I'm when your mind is set.
I'm where your journey starts and ends.
I'm why your story comes to life.

Hint:

For the last time, my brother is not in a coma.

• There are seemingly grammatical errors present: "stand" instead of "stands", "start" and "end" instead of "Starts" and "ends", "come" instead of "comes". Are these intentional? Sep 20 '19 at 13:22
• oh i'm not fluent in English. sr it's not intentional

After some feedback from the OP that first answer was close, here's my 2nd shot.

Attempt #2

You are the period.

I'm what stands between your family.

In the periodic table of elements, the members of a family (vertical columns) are separated into different periods (horizontal rows).

I'm when your mind is set.

Saying "Period [ . ]" after a statement often means the matter is set in stone.

I'm where your journey starts and ends.

In physics, a period is defined as the duration of time of one cycle in a repeating event. Hence, it marks both the start and end of a cycle.

I'm why your story comes to life.

In film / television, period is a descriptor used for works set some time in the past (ie, historical period drama).

Attempt #1

You are the punctuation mark(s)

I'm what stands between your family.

If you list your family members (or any list of related words), the comma [ , ] will likely be between each of those names.

I'm when your mind is set.

Saying "Period [ . ]" after a statement often means the matter is set in stone.

I'm where your journey starts and ends.

Epic travels are filled with questions [ ? ] at the beginning with the answers [ . ] at the end.

I'm why your story comes to life.

The exclamation mark [ ! ] brings life to any sentence.

• The hint suggested what it was. But I couldn't decide which one specifically since I can't find one which satisfied all the clues / lines in the riddle. Let me think about it some more. Sep 23 '19 at 8:14
• @Sinh I've updated my answer. I think this one hits most, if not all, of the clues. Sep 23 '19 at 8:30
• You got the answer right.
