    Cool. I really wasn't sure about SNES after Pet Sematary because Sematary is spelled incorrectly on purpose by King and it's misspelling is misspelled in the puzzle. :D

    Ahh, I was hoping I wouldn't make a mistake like that haha. Glad it still worked out in the end!

    Miasma, Ternary, and Organ are correct! I think that leaves only one clue unanswered:

    17 Across
    Gnomes, leprechauns, and satyrs all share this characteristic

    Tan mentioned before that it's a personality trait they share. Nothing is really coming to me. I want to say selfish, greedy or gluttonous, but obviously none of those fit.

    After looking at a list of a bunch of words, I'm going to guess Jovial?

    Anyone have any guesses? I'll go with desire but I don't think that's it. It may be time to throw in the towel on this one.
