Welcome to Trash Panda Puzzles! I have a brand-new crossword for you today. But before we dive into it, let's take a moment to celebrate the latest Academy Awards ceremony. Over the weekend, one of my newest favorite films, Everything Everywhere All at Once, took home a whopping seven awards! I was so thrilled about the film's success that I found it hard to sleep, on top of the added challenge of the recent Daylight Savings time shift. I hope you all had a great weekend and start to the week too.

Now, let's talk about today's puzzle. It's a 15x15 themeless crossword with standard symmetry. Normally, I can create a grid or fill without needing much revision, but this week was particularly challenging. I was dead set on using the 15-character grid-spanning word you’ll see when solving. That word led me to completely overhaul the grid four times. But finally, I landed on a grid that gave me the flexibility I needed to make the puzzle work. So, without further ado, let's get started!
