Puzzle #45: “Big Themeless”

Hello crossfolks!

Seeing as this year has been so long and the coming occasion so big, I felt I should make this one big as well, so it’s 21×21. It’s also on the tough side, but I think it’s certainly doable, and hopefully more fun than flummoxing to grapple with. Thanks for coming by all year long. This blog has been a big deal for me as a constructor and your part in it as solver means a lot!

I’ve really enjoyed some 21×21 themelesses from members of the constructing community lately and looked to them for how I might make this big thing work. For taking on the big test solve, I’d like to thank Brooke Husic and Will Nediger. I’m very happy to be able to throw this first 21x themeless effort on the pile with some of the gems that are coming out this week.

Have a happy New Year, and I’ll see you on the other side with the January cryptic, which drops on Saturday.

Take care and enjoy!
