It’s another 15x here on Trash Panda Puzzles! Constructing this grid was a bit trickier than usual. It took 17 versions of the grid before I was satisfied with how it was filled. 15-Down was the seed word for the grid and no matter what, I wanted to use the word this week. On top of that, I was aiming for a pangram crossword. Of the 17 fills I made, a few of them managed to use all 26 letters. The grid as seen below only managed to use… well, you’ll see. Happy solving!
