Nov mini cryptic 11

· By BJ · Published 7 months ago

This one was a bit of a speedrun, 30 minutes from sitting down to write it to hitting publish. Hopefully there's still some good that came of it.
A few of the surfaces are a little iffy, but I didn't have time to refine them :/
1A Def Refuges Wordplay Hidden in commuNES TSar
5A Def tap? Wordplay Hoot (riot) - 'o' (old)
6A Def Not a single person Wordplay E (first of Eat) after Noon (midday)
8A Def Irritate Wordplay One (a) inside JuroR's clothes (edges)
9A Def Following Wordplay Aft = somewhat stern (towards the stern of a ship) + ER for queen
1D Def YouTube Celeb Wordplay Double definition with particularly skilled. Sorry in advance for the clue
2D Def Fleeting Wordplay T (time) after SHORe (edge = shore - last letter)
3D Def A lot Wordplay On (working) under T (First letter of terrible)
4D Def Direct Wordplay Anagram of terse. Broadcast doesn't need to be a homophone
7D Def Barbarian Wordplay lOAF (bread) without the top
Checking for previous play data...
