One of my friends has been working on a grid building software, but it hasn't been coming along too well. The unsightly and horrific grids that his software has produced so far has been beneficial in other ways. Today's 15x is heavily inspired by one of his failed grids which I then cleaned up and made into a themeless puzzle. Our goal with his development is to someday have a crossword construction tool that can be on par with (and hopefully surpass) the current options in the niche market. That day is still quite far ahead of us.
The clues for the 15-letter words today is my next attempt at better wordplay and general silliness. Hopefully they don't throw people too far off, but sorry in advance if they do. Special thank you to Norah for helping test solve and to iron out a few clues!
