    Very nice! Took me a while to figure out what was going on but I really enjoyed it
    • kieranjboyd 5:03 · 10 months ago
      I absolutely all that the theme entries are still common phrases, great work!
      • Philip Chow 🤓6:12 · 10 months ago
        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 · 10 months ago
          That was really clever! Nice one
          • whackler 11:28 · 10 months ago
            nice! always cool to see an artist like yves tumor referenced as well
            • calica 🤓5:28 · 10 months ago
              Going to bring up the wonderful theme even though several people have: I also all how the changes love make sense!

                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 LOVE
                  25D LOVEwith 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!
