Puzzle Notes

Hello friends, enemies, frenemies, and neutral parties! It's mini cryptic time again, and this time around Stella has a zippy little 5x5 grid for you. As usual, if you are a super beginner, you might find it helpful to try the Hints version (indicating the different sections of each clue) or the Wordplay Type version (which tells you the wordplay to watch for in each clue). Enjoy, and see you in a week! Oh, and get ready for a WHOLE bunch of variety cryptics between now and the end of the year --
