In this teaser, you will be given rows, each with three clues. The answer to the second clue of any row will consist of the letters -- usually rearranged -- of the answer to the first clue in that row, minus one letter. The answer to the third clue, likewise, will consist of the letters from the second answer, minus one. If you put each dropped letter into the box following the word from which it was dropped, reading down the two columns of boxes will give a phrase, or two terms that are somehow related.

1. Pester [_] 2. Facial hair [_] 3. Exposed
4. Showed up [_] 5. Eclectic [_] 6. Spoke wildly
7. Tastes [_] 8. Paper piercer [_] 9. Type of wheat
10. Run playfully [_] 11. Shriek [_] 12. Concerns
13. Superficial [_] 14. Permits [_] 15. Perimeter
16. Express a belief [_] 17. Lidless [_] 18. "The Raven" author

I love your Dropboxes series! This is the only one so far I've been able to solve by myself without looking at part of the answer...

And they are pretty tough, so if you even get close to solving them, that's pretty good. I probably couldn't solve them myself if I hadn't been the one to make them.
