Written much by peer and shakes, often read for the love it makes (6) - Certainly not pretty after a car crash (6)

Elegant flower and popular where there is red light (5) - Ferocious beast of ancient times (7)

Spins then flies (10) - 10 squared over 10 cubed (7)

Useful after a long walk (8) - Country with much rain and a long reign (7)

Deviating from the norm (8) - Impregnable (4)

A quality of an intelligent mind (9) - ‘Pokemon___Balls’ (6)

Partial answer. The clue refers to:

The first letters of every 2nd question ascend alphabetically. Also worth noting the rhyming connection for pairs 1 and 2 , although 4, 7 and 9 don't seem to follow this pattern.

1

Disgrace / ace

2

Sonnet / bonnet

3

Roses?? / Cyclops

4

Helicopter / decimal

5

? / England

6

Abnormal / Fort

7

Intellect / ...Go Poke?

8

Montages? / Hospital

9

Chocolate / icing?

  • $\begingroup$ An improvement from the other answer but still mistaken in some areas, you have the alphabet order correct. $\endgroup$ – Deepthinker101 Dec 9 '19 at 5:41
