Themeless 16!

◆◆ · By Frisco17 · Published about 1 month ago

Constructor's Note: there are some dead giveaway clues in this but you guys need a break after my last puz so think of it as a gift (also the cluing angles slap as usual so it's a willing trade to make) (tweaked or treated by acommonrose (also speaking of: this puzzle has nothing to do with halloween despite when it's coming out))
