    🤯 <-- me when I worked out 15A15AHomely Edward goes after a Spanish ex, with absolutely no context (11)[-----------] afterwards

      Ha... same here. Got the word pretty easy; struggled to understand the cluing.

      Really liked 7A7AAstronautics expert is into measurement for blocking rays (and the rays themselves) (5,6)[-----------] and 9D9DWhite House exists, according to rumor (7)[-------]. 8D8DA simple first example: you and Al are just not into it (7)[-------] caught me out as I was trying to use 'eg' as example

        nice and smooth, especially like the ship nina that kinda connects to 7a7AAstronautics expert is into measurement for blocking rays (and the rays themselves) (5,6)[-----------]
        • frostyjhammer 10:39 · 2023-08-23T03:04:55.054Z

                      If this is your first cryptic, I can only imagine how great your next puzzles are going to be. You had some very nice surfaces, especially for the longer ones (like 7A7AAstronautics expert is into measurement for blocking rays (and the rays themselves) (5,6)[-----------]!), and there was a humorous voice to stuff like 1D1DSoftware from the 80s? Sod off! (3)[---], 6D6DSpanish in Northport? Why? It results in pure chaos (7)[-------], and 18A18ABehold! Westerosi knight is a real sad sack (5)[-----].
