This one didn't put up much resistance. OFFICEWIFE and EVILGENIUS in the NW were colorful, and FLINCH (Draw back) and SCAMPER (Scurry) are words you don't see often in crosswords, so those were fun. EVERDEEN ("Hunger Games" protagonist Katniss ____) was a giveaway for me and, I'm sure, anyone who's read the books or seen the films, so that helped over in the NE.
I thought the clue for MACRON (French leader after Hollande) was oddly amusing. Would "American leader after Obama" ever be used? Probably not, but who knows what's going on over in EUROPE, right?...
In the SE, it looks like "totem poles" would have fit where ARROWHEADS (Old Native American carvings) belongs, but since I already had several downs (including MACRON), I was not fooled. And DOILOOKFAT (Question always best answered "no") got a chuckle at first, but then I wondered if that's part of the problem in America. Do we need to start being more honest about this? Speaking quite personally, someone once let me know that I was starting to fill in my t-shirts a little more than maybe I should be, and it led me to shed about 25 pounds, which was good for so many reasons.
Anywho... AEAEA (Island of myth in Homer's "Odyssey") is crazy, and I didn't know CECE (Gospel singer Winans), but was happy to be reminded of one of Colum's clan. :)
I guess overall I thought it was fine. Not particularly scintillating, but I'm not going to SCATHE it either.
