    I don't know HOW you managed to STILL make this solvable (and fun to figure out) with the whole halving gimmick. Took me a while to realize that 1D
    1D THA------ villain ---'- a --- snappy? (--- whose ------- have -------- this ----)
    is the revealer (also, I'd like to see the full clues, even though most missing words can be deduced).

      Hey thanks! Glad it was indeed solvable - this was one of my more outlandish ideas.
      I didn't actually write original clues (I worked within the 'every second word' constraint to make the clues legible), but a post-Endgame version is a good idea, so here y'all go:
      • 1A
        1A THESpringsteen's ----------, in - famous ----
        THEUSA Springsteen's birthplace, in a famous song

      damn what a puzzle... this was really fun to figure out... had to reveal one to get started, but once i did i took out pen and paper to make the 6x6 and proceeded to spell ocelot wrong which lead me to look for more gimmicks
      • Mike D 32s · about 1 month ago
        Very cool! Totally stumped me
        • carter 🤓9:36 · about 1 month ago
          this was fantastic!! at first i was trying to enter every other letter like in the title, but eventually caught on to what i was supposed to do. such a cool concept, and well executed too!
          • kieranjboyd constructor · about 1 month ago
            Turns out if you snap a grid by taking out every second letter, there are no more entries to clue!
          • aria 15s · about 1 month ago
            your puzzles always baffle me (in the best way)... loved the clue for 1d. even if i couldnt solve this one i had a good time trying to figure out why the solution was what it was
