Sometimes it turns out that you aren't always everyone's flavour of the month. As always, I suppose I'll have to make my own fun, and as always I am very grateful for the company of my dearest readers.
So here the intended idea is a little bit obscured by having to add in a couple more givens than I'd have liked, in order to guarantee uniqueness. This unfortunately gives a few easy-ish placements to start off, maybe lulling you into a false sense of security. Which is a pity for the flow of the puzzle, but such is life.
Anyhow all I'll say with this puzzle is that if you're looking for dead-or-alive ambiguity you'll know it when you see it, dearest reader. After that the puzzle will flow quite nicely, even if I do say so myself. Enjoy!
