This is a series of riddles, whose answers all have a relation to each other. Answer the riddles to find the relation.

Riddle 1:

I invade and conquer,
I kill all in my path,
Though I do not kill directly.

People can usually fight off my brothers and cousins when they invade,
But when I come,
I allow them to conquer and kill.

Riddle 2:

Some say I conquer all
And I even have my own holiday.

I am given and received
And I can cause joy or grief.

Everybody wants me
And everybody hates to lose me.

Riddle 3:

I am gigantic
And everybody loves to come see me.

I was the home of the government of the USA,
But now I am the home of the theatre.

Though I'm not famous because of fruit,
People call me an apple.

Riddle 4:

I'm given and received,
Although the people who have to give me don't want to part with me.

I'm only given by people who don't own something,
And I'm usually associated with apartments.



Answer

They all relate to the musical RENT.

The answers to the riddles are (in order): AIDS, love, New York City, rent.

AIDS comes from HIV, which is a virus that invades your cells, and it has no cure, therefore conquers you, and kills all in its path. It weakens your immune system, so it doesn't kill you, but other, usually harmless, viruses and bacteria can.

There is a saying that love conquers all, and Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrating love.
People give and get love, and people are happy when they have it, and sad when they don't have it. Everybody wants to be loved, and people hate losing love.

New York City is a very large city, and people love to visit it. It was once the capital of the United States, and now because of Broadway, it is almost synonymous with the theatre.
Some people call New York City the "Big Apple".

People pay rent, and people (landlords) receive it, although many people hate paying rent. Only people who don't own something that they use have to pay it, and most people think of rent as the rent you pay to live in an apartment.
