## Solution - Fun Sized

Answer: Click here to reveal

Each clue for this crossword has an answer with exactly the same number of alphanumeric characters as there are in the clue. Because of this, the special coloring applied to the alphanumeric characters in the clue in either listing can be applied to the answer to the clue. The colors added to the first listing of the clues correspond to the colors on the right hand side of the small square windows the Vassar Street side of Simmons Hall (the sides visible from the left), while the colors applied to the second listing of the clues correspond to colors on the left hand side (visible from the right). This allows the answers to the clues to be placed into a crisscross-style grid using these windows (and non-windows in the same grid pattern) as a criss-cross grid. Note that larger windows which exist within the grid pattern can also take a letter, and that, as an aid to solving, all colors from each side of each window with a letter have been added to the clues, so the absence of color can be used for placement just like the color itself can.)

When all of the answers have been placed, eighteen letters will fall on grid spaces without a window. These letters, when read from left to right and top to bottom, spell out a clue to this puzzle's answer: VAMOOSE FIVE LETTERS. A five-letter similarly slangy synonym for vamoose is SCRAM, this puzzle's answer.

A simple ASCII representation of the grid follows below, with the number signs representing the parts of the front of Simmons Hall which are not part of the grid of windows, the asterisks representing part of a larger window which contains a letter, and letters highlighted in green where a letter is not on a window and is thus part of a solution phrase.
