    Heh spent a long time staring at this one before basically solving 20 across first 馃槀. Easier said than done!
    Fun puzzle Ben!

      Thanks!!!

      Good difficulty distribution even considering the theme, which managed to include every clue! Nice one. (I spent so long thinking of synonyms for "life" or "peace" or "plenty" before getting MESSIAH
      15A MESSIAHOne of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, perhaps
      馃槄)

      nice puzzle - really made me think!! IT'S vs ITS
      18A ITSIt's
      was the last thing i filled in... hahaha - oh i see what you did there ;)
      • Philip Chow 馃9:02聽路聽6 months ago
        took me awhile to figure out what was going on... first thing i filled in was SETTING (for MELTING
        27A MELTINGSolidifying
        ), and then saw that INCA
        28D INCAAztec, with regard to the North-South axis of the Americas
        fit, but i thought wait wasn't INCA
        28D INCAAztec, with regard to the North-South axis of the Americas
        in peru? something weird is going on... and NEED
        29D NEEDWant
        and WANT aren't the same thing? loved the AHA moment of this puzzle

          Love the title, that's what grabbed me right away! And then i love all the different ways you interpreted opposites! ITS
          18A ITSIt's
          vs IT'S was definitely one of my favorites. For 3D
          3D OWESIs in the green
          , I usually hear that as "in that black," so that took me a while. Great fun overall!
