    I made this to exercise my cryptic clue-writing skills, cause it's way too much work to come up with a complex theme or to fill a large grid and this is just as much fun. Hope you enjoyed! Feedback is appreciated.

              "A,B,C, for example": NOTE, as in musical note
              (and D): add the letter D to the end

            Not gonna lie I thought 4D was trying search for a synonym for HQ since it was the middle two letters in earthquake. Not sure if it was intended or not but devious sort of misdirection haha

              Not at all intended haha, I'm just a huge fan of compound words that indicate two elements of the cryptic part
