Default Complete the Word!


I just thought up a game which could be fun for a while. What happens, is someone puts up two letters, then the next poster has to finish a word starting with those two letters, but disconnects the last two letters of that word for the next person to start a new word.

Example:

First two letters:
BE

Poster 2:
Believe (now it's VE)

Poster 3:
Ve
nerable (Now LE)

So on, so forth. So I'll put up two letters to start, and let's see how far and creative we can get! If anyone ever gets really stuck, just don't put a word and put up a new two letters to start with.

Here goes:

GE

Good one. I have to admit I cheated after my post and searched found a few words that began with ym. Ymir wasn't one of them. I bow to your Norseness.
