    Very fun. Now I know what 24A24AShallow, as a relief[---] means. And I really like the 25A25ATeach's utterance, stereotypically[---] clue in the context of a school-themed puzzle.

      25A25ATeach's utterance, stereotypically[---] went through a lot of changes, including some "Our Flag Means Death" references, before "oh wait, I know!"

      Shoot, I was trying to reveal a word and I clicked Reveal Puzzle. I thought it was very hard. I didn't get anything in the top third of the puzzle, across or down. Some of the clues seemed a bit arch. I did like some that got me to write in incorrect answers at first. 20D20DSecond word in a command[------] was good. 1A1ACafeteria food or a cat's food[-------] is fun but I never would have gotten it. Might need to be more specific about the cat. 10D10DLast name in fiction and snacks[-----] is impossible to me; don't know an author or character of that name. 9D9DMany an English student[---] too open-ended. But I did OK, had fun doing this puzzle.

        I appreciate the feedback! I'm still working out how to make fun clues that aren't also incredibly difficult.

        Also, what is 6D6DType of log one might learn about in school[---]? Don't get that one.

          A few really challenging clues, but everything made sense once I got it filled. A good one!

            Stunning clue for 26D26DThese eggs are on a roll[---]
