douchemun, looks like you have been busy with the imposter handle, here.

can't you come up with your own handle names instead of hyphenating existing handles like mine and tracy etc? how about catpee-waste? would suit you best.

and  how come you haven't thanked for my giving the link and the checkerboard with rest of this cryptics in full -the link from which you stole, w/o acknowledging?

11 - ELECTOR (EEL-E)+ and maybe (VECTOR-V)
15 - DORM+ANT
20 - GRIMM - (Jakob Ludwig Karl 1785–1863, and his brother, Wilhelm Karl 1786–1859, German philologists and folklorists, who collaborated on Grimm's Fairy Tales (1812–22) and began a German dictionary) and homonym of grim

and 9 is HEAR (seva is correct)
18 is HEAT , your one wrong answer.
