Meta Prompt: Uh-oh! Something's gone awry with this meta's clues, the grid seems fine though so... just solve it I guess? Answer is a 10-letter word. (Note: This meta is probably very hard to solve, I'd be surprised if anyone got it, this was very experimental, so just have fun)

    If anyone wants to know how a particular clue is spelled without the typo, just ask :)

      Can you explain how the meta works? Nice puzzle - had a heck of a time trying to work my way through it 😊
      • Pixlate constructor · 8 days ago
        Each clue has one of its letters replaced by another letter/character. Taking these letters in order (Acrosses and downs), they spell out the first verse of Close To You by The Carpenters. e.g. ASP
        1A ASPCertain wiper
        is [Certain wiper] instead of Viper, so you should take the W.

            Whoa. I don't feel so bad about not getting it now.

          wow wow wow. i was writing down the typo letters as i went but got distracted bc i’ve been watching shrek while i solved this. great meta, great song, great work!!

            Fun! Hard! That was a clever concept. I didn't know about the song, but once the meta clues were finally done (with lots of checking) the few remaining clues were a piece of cake. Thanks!
