What's it called when you have a stack but it's vertical entries? To me, stack implies one on top of the other, rather than side-by-side entries. Can we call these pillars? While we're talking about crossword terminology, I'll be using "themie"
moving forward (rather than "themer") and encourage y'all to do the same.
Other things that are new in 7xwords land: If you are the kind of person who likes to say "thank you for running this project" in a $$$ way, you can now do that over here
! This is one thousand percent optional, obviously, but I did have a few requests for it, so now it exists.
Many thanks to Matthew
for their initial thoughts on this grid, which led me to refill some spots, and Mollie
for doing a full test solve of the final puzzle, and helping me nail down some clues. Whoa, I just realized those are both M/K pairings. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
