Solved: August Riddle of the Month
The August Riddle of the Month has been solved by Caprice Gifford! I'll be posting her prize sketch along with the solution to the riddle, shortly. Now that the riddle has been solved and we have a winner, feel free to send as many guesses as you'd like. I'll also go ahead and post the riddle to FB for people to have fun with there. 

Thank you for playing, Patrons!

And for non-patrons who'd like to see the riddle and might be allergic to Facebook, here you go:

If you’re not careful, I’ll turn it black!
