puzzle no. 12: throw some d's (feat. erik agard)

i'm so excited to finally post this—it's been burning a hole in my pocket all week! he needs no introduction otherwise, but this is erik's debut on the blog! (a feather in his cap, i'm sure). it's hard to explain how this came to be, but it started with me listening to THROW SOME D'S by rich boy (2007 BET  award nominee for ringtone of the year), and ended in...a crossword. erik is, among many things, extremely funny and wrote some all-timer clues for this puzzle. we toiled and troubled (neither are true: making this was a blast) over it for a few weekends, and i hope you love the end result.  

in erik's words: solving crosstina puzzles has made me fall in love with crosswords all over again, and i had so much fun getting to collaborate on this one. hope you enjoy! 

shit tight, no slack, just bought a cadillac...

happy valentine's day from crosstina aquafina

darkness falls across the land...the midnight hour is close at hand...creatures crawl in search of blood...

wait, hold on— wrong holiday, my bad.

happy valentine's day, y'all! i think this puzzle is a real treat, and speaks for itself. you will never, in a million years, guess what the inspiration/seed fill was because some sacrifices had to be made to pull this off, but i think the results are well worth it. i'll say no more! happy solving ❤️‍🔥
