Constructor's Note
I've been too busy to keep to schedule, but this is a theme I came up with a few weeks ago - let me know what you think!

        Hey thanks again - there are some weak areas, but the theme came together pretty well!

                That was awesome. Such a satisfying revealer too
                • Raspberrygoop constructor · 2022-12-08T00:30:04.075Z
                  Cheers! Yeah this one is a little on the obscure side, but it comes together nicely enough.

                  Oh wow that was tricky!!!!!
                  • Raspberrygoop constructor · 2022-12-08T00:36:36.016Z
                    Gotta keep you on your toes ❤️

                    Great theme as usual!
                    • Raspberrygoop constructor · 2022-12-08T03:10:02.266Z
                      Thanks my friend ❤️
                    • kieranjboyd 🤓4:31 · 2022-12-08T02:55:40.973Z
                      Great that you found so many theme words! I could only find WHITEHOT as a spare
                      • Raspberrygoop constructor · 2022-12-08T07:12:52.307Z
                        Well done! Yes I found a few combinations I liked more than what I ended up using in 26-across26A*A venomous snake / A character from Archie[---------], but none of them would fit the letter count for symmetry. I don't think I ever had WHITEHOT, so you got that over me!

                        Put your head on the block...haha!
                        • Raspberrygoop constructor · 2022-12-09T01:34:08.881Z
                          Haha thanks. I really struggled to come up with a title that wasn't just "Decapitated" or "Heading awry". Don't want to give away the game too soon!
                        • skelly 🤓10:09 · 2022-12-10T21:30:51.174Z
                          Very enjoyable!

                            awesome theme! once I figured it out, I was incredibly amazed at how you put it all together. really cool!
                            • Raspberrygoop constructor · 2022-12-11T02:32:59.675Z
                              Thanks! It was a blast to write up - I think I went through almost every possible combination of words that end in -head.
