Kind of a spoiler, but I don't care because you have to see this (click for video - definite spoiler)

Seven found a home at xxxwordinfo - it's a little naughty ;) (see all NaCroWriMo puzzs)

If Eight! had a subtitle (it doesn't - we've come too far, ok?) it would be "Eight!: All Bangers!" This puzzle has a super traditional themed grid, is filled and clued with an eye toward the excellent house styling at USAT (with the difficulty kicked up exactly one notch), and still carries a bit of Norah flavor and indie flair.

I was going to post a link (right here) to the origin of ! = "banger" that originally inspired this theme idea about a million years ago but I couldn't find it. Wasn't it a tweet? I don't know. Please remind me.
