assuming non-challopsy opinion (and that welles=orson), the "greatest production" is kane, and the deathbed word is "rosebud"

so this is probably rose-related material

so i think vi is probably rosie of laurie lee's cider with rosie

(ktee again) so if vii is ROSEBUD could viii be THE MARY ROSE?

x sounds like a virus - so one that would cause a rosy rash, like rosacea?

(ktee AGAIN :))

It's probably Roseola https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roseola (HHV is human herpes virus, mmmm)

v. is Rose Street in Edinburgh - the challenge is a pub crawl (surely carsmile has done this?)

Twitcher implies bird of some kind?

"the red-eyed vireo may repeat the phrases in its song almost continually earning the colloquial "preacher bird" name." - does red-eyed count as rosy? Twitcher's "tick" is a sighting of a rare bird, or at least one you haven't seen and want for your list.

searching: looks like iv may be the Golden Rose, though I haven't yet worked out which pope and which consort

I reckon Pope Urban VIII and Henrietta Maria. She was queen consort of England, Scotland, and Ireland as the wife of King Charles I, and was the youngest daughter of King Henry IV of France.

1625 Henrietta Maria, Queen of England and Scotland Pope Urban VIII woman England and Scotland received at Amiens
