Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends:

Today's AVCX+ is a themeless crossword by the great Rachel Fabi, titled "[eyes emoji]" (yes, that emoji -- the one we're avoiding here out of concern that it'll break some email delivery system somewhere). We're calling this puzzle 1/5 on our made-up difficulty scale, meaning this is as easy as our themelesses will probably get... but not necessarily that it's the easiest puzzle you'll ever solve anywhere. It also means this is a great one to share with a friend or loved one who hasn't yet dipped their toes into themelessy goodness!

Rachel Fabi is a queer constructor, streamer, and writer-abouter of crossword puzzles from Syracuse, NY. You can find her puzzles on Just Gridding!, her streams on Twitch, and her writing at the New York Times Wordplay column.
