Puzzle 80: Themeless #12

Still ridin' the themeless train! I started this one with the three 15s running across (and their clues), then just tried to keep the corners wide open and free of "cheater squares." This is probably one of the more challenging themelesses I've made, especially lately, so I'm labelling this extra hard. Let me know how it goes...

All that has made it hard t

Puzzle 84: Themeless #16

Happy holidays! The season inspired a few entries in this grid, like 15-Across and 63-Across, but there's plenty of other fun stuff, including some recurring motifs in the clues. The word count and grid shape might make this one play a little more easily than usual (lots of 3s), but I'm calling it "hard" just in case.
