Can't say what will happen with this Storm, but that hasn't stopped me in the past, so why should it stop you?
English has several words that can be cased in two letters, so making two adjacent words unlinked to the opening term. OMELETTE, say, can sit in HR to create HOME LETTER. Just as the surname CAMPBELL can convert into SCAMP BELLY.
Choosing wisely, you may turn any seven-plus letter word or name into a sweet phrase, or at least a phrase that could warrant a comical-cryptical definition. To show you the drill, try these four:
LOVER HEART - It throbs for thee
SALAD DINE - Vegan feast
'UPON TOONS' - Animation Oration
FATTEN DANCER - Prepare for the 17 veils
As you can see, your source word can vary in length. (But let's aim for seven-plus.) Just as the two-word split can fall anywhere, though TO MISSIONS isn't such a staggering makeover of OMISSION. Likewise, if you can, avoid a hookworm duplication like SHOOK WORMS, or morphing winehouse into SWINE HOUSED etc.
Aside from that, see what we can create. In essence, we have a double challenge: who can contrive the most stylish split, and the sleekest clue? Or possibly that feat will be one and the same. Start fattening your dancers.
