I got a 24 on F2 R F2 D L2 U2 R2 B2 L2 F2 U B2 U2 R B' U' F' U2 F' R' but more importantly I managed to preserve two easy pairs which is way more advanced than anything I've done before. this should've been the PB scramble but oh well.

39 STM FMC attempt(CFOP PB):

Yes I used slice moves because this is a casual attempt

one time i got a scramble from cstimer where, once i solved the cross, all of the edges were solved and 3/4 of them were triple sexy case. not sure how but i remember it happened
L2 D' F2 R' B2 L2 U2 F L U2 R2 B2 D' R2 F2 B2 U2 R2

edit: found another one D2 L2 D2 F2 L2 F2 U2 B2 L2 F2 L2 B2 R2 F2 B2 D2 R2 L2 B2 R2 F2 L2 R2 D2 B2
half turns only solve where i one-looked the whole thing by only trying to do 2 steps out of 4
x2 // Inspection
F2 L2 // Block (2 HTM)
R2 F2 R2 U2 F2 R2 F2 // Triplets (7 HTM)
all of this was planned in inspection

Scramble: U L2 U' L2 F2 D' L2 D2 R2 B2 F2 R' D' L2 F' U' F U R' D'

I noticed two solved green cross edges and even a solved pair. I also noticed that the other two green edges were in the correct place, but flipped. The green-red-yellow pair on the top layer was already paired up, but had a flipped yellow-red edge as well.

Inspection: x' y2 (blue top, yellow front)
X-Cross: M' U M' U M' U M' U (also paired up the yellow-red pair)
F2L 2: U2 L' U L
F2L 3: y U R U R' U2 R U R'
F2L 4: y' U R U' R' U y L' U' L
OLL: y' R U R' U' R' F R2 U R' U' F'
PLL: R U R' U R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U2 R U' R' U2

Definitely one of the weirdest cross solutions ive done

I tried to make this not-so-special scramble as advanced as possible using ZZ. Psuedo-slotting, slice moves, multislotting, F2L tricks, and ZBLL galore! I call this ZZeroing

Scramble: F' D2 R2 B2 L2 R2 F' L2 F R2 F' D B2 U' B' F' D2 U L R' D'

39 STM
z' x2 // Inspection
R E M' U2 F2 D' // EOcross (6)
U' M' B' r' U2 L' U' L R // 1st + 2nd pairs (9)
U2 R' U R D R' U R D' // 3rd + 4th pairs (9)
R2 F' R U2 R U2 R' F U' R U R' U' R // ZBLL
U2 // AUF

I’m not a CFOP solver but this looked like a pretty good cfop scramble to me with the free xcross:
D R2 D' U2 L2 D2 L2 F2 D2 F' U L U2 F D F U' B R
not too bad! I tried making the 2x2 block first and that didn't end very well, but if you do the cross its very convenient to use keyhole and sledge in that xcross edge and I got a 9.88.

cstimer 3x3 scramble

L F R2 L B’ U2 B U’ F2 D’ F2 U R2 D2 F2 B2 U’ B2

I got a 8.01 because of my slow recognition

Whoopsie start on red because I didn’t notice the yellow
