    Very nice! Took me a while to figure out what was going on but I really enjoyed it
    • kieranjboyd 5:03 · 2022-02-15T03:20:54.695Z
      I absolutely all that the theme entries are still common phrases, great work!
      • Philip Chow 🤓6:12 · 2022-02-15T04:35:07.427Z
        Loved it! Also appreciated that the new phrase can be a legit stand-alone phrase which obscured the aha moment until the revealer… so good!
        • Raja K 12:56 · 2022-02-15T05:52:19.948Z
          That was really clever! Nice one

            nice! always cool to see an artist like yves tumor referenced as well

              Going to bring up the wonderful theme even though several people have: I also all how the changes love make sense!

                12-Across12A* tied tennis score[-----------] had me scratching my head until I got the revealer... Brilliantly done.

                  Great puzzle, great theme! Same comment as everyone else, the fact that all the theme answers are real phrases with both LOVE25Dwith 29A, meaning of the Latin phrase "omnia vincit amor"... and a hint for making sense of the starred clues' answers[----] and ALL is very clever, and must've taken a bit of work to find expressions that fit the bill.

                    Not much more to add that hasn't been said - what a clever theme and construction!

                      Great revealer! Clue for 1D1Dpeanut butter brand whose first letter's pronunciation is hotly deb— oh wait[---] was hilarious. Also loved the clue for 11A11Ametalcore band ___ for My Valentine[------].
