Glorious Trinity by Quinapalus

The grid consists of two rows of five equal oblong areas labelled A-J as shown.

Answers are folded before entry. Letters up to the fold are entered in one direction (either forwards or backwards), remaining letters in the opposite direction. Letters running in opposite directions are alternated as necessary in the grid. For example, SCORED can appear as SCORED (fold at D), SCORDE (fold at E), SCDOER (at R), DSECRO (at O), DERSOC (at C), or any of these reversed. The letter after the fold (if any) appears between the fold letter and the letter before the fold. Definitions refer to the unfolded form, wordplay to the folded form.

Solvers should use a pencil until they have taken account of some oblique hints, and ensure, as matters unfold in the final step of this threefold revelation, that their names and addresses are visible on the completed entry. Considering vertical scores may help. Some squares may need to hold more than one letter or be left empty. Chambers Dictionary (2003) is recommended.

Solvers are welcome to submit their entries, but sadly there is no prize.
