It's time to get back at the Queen of Hearts by beheading words that start with "Qu". In this case, you remove the first TWO letters and still have a valid word. You will be given clues for the two words, longer word first.
Example: British pound -> Part of the psyche
Answer: The words are Quid and Id.

1. Stop doing -> That thing
2. Peculiar behaviour -> Annoy
3. Subatomic particle -> Large boat
4. Unit of liquid measure -> Product of creativity
5. Small game bird -> To be unwell
6. Large feather; pen -> Unwell; faulty
7. Nausea; uncomfortable -> Simple
8. Misgivings; scruples -> Donations to the poor


Hint

The shorter words start with these letters:
1. I
2. I
3. A
4. A
5. A
6. I
7. E
8. A
