When trying to find the reconstruction (I didn’t write it down), I couldn’t figure out the solution for a while, so I’m shocked that I found this easy solution!

L' U F D2 B2 R2 U R2 U2 F2 R2 B2 R2 B R D' R U' B U Uw2 Rw2 B2 D Fw2 F Uw2 B U D' Rw2 F' B2 Rw' L2 B2 L B' Fw L' Uw F' Rw2 Fw Rw2

Ridiculous 4x4 scramble. Solved white center and the most convenient way to solve F2C preserves/makes 2 cross edges, with an easy 3rd one.

x' y2 // Inspection

Rw U2 Rw' L Uw2 y U Lw' U2 Lw // F2C (9)

z F L F' L2 U' Rw' U' // Cross Edges (7, 16)

The way I solved it got me a pretty easy L4C into 2 free edges in 3-2-3 into normal F2L into sexy sledge OLL into PLL Parity into J Perm, but I messed up the recon somewhere so this is as much as I got. I got a 47.91, which was 1 solve after me being super siked about a 57 since it was my first sub-1 since coming back.

L2 F D2 L' B2 F2 L2 U2 R F2 R2 U2 R' B D' U2 R2 U R B'

13.94 3x3 single when I average 26
Insane scramble, really should have got faster but I got nervous and messed up the last pair
Scrambled with green front, white on top
White cross facing red, yellow top (ofc)

B' F L F // cross
y R U R' U F U' F' // first pair
U' L U' L' // second pair
U R' U2 R2 U R' // third pair
y2 U2 R U' R' // last pair
OLL skip
J perm

39 moves (HTM)
2.79 TPS
This could have been a lot faster

I just got this simple 4 mover, but I didn't know that so the solve could have been a sub 1 if I was better at 2x2

Insane scramble: R2 B' U2 L2 B' U2 L2 D2 U2 B' D' L2 R F R U2 R U2 B'
Reconstruction:
B' R' F2 // x-cross
y' U' R U R' L' U L // 2nd pair
f R' f' // 3rd pair
F' U F // 4th pair
U' S R U R' U' R' F R f' // OLL
R U R' U' D R2 U' R U' R' U R' U R2 D' // PLL

7.343
41 FTM

I DNFed this scramble the first time so I tried it again and got 7.343.

A much better clock solver than I could probably do pretty good on this scramble:
UR4- DR5+ DL5- UL5- U4- R5+ D6+ L3- ALL1- y2 U5- R3+ D1+ L3+ ALL4+ UL

Spoiler: My Solution

y2 // Inspection
DR6+ UL1+ ALL1- // First cross
y2 UR3- DL1- UL4- L2+ // Second cross
(not sure how to notate this part)
UL/UR/DR1+ UR/DR/DL5+ ALL6+ // Corners

So this is more on the weird side... So basically my skewb goal was a sub-7 single and then I do a small session and within eleven solves I break my pb four times. 6.618 to 6.574 to 5.207 to 5.046

x2 // inspection

U2 // AUF

Yeah but the OOPS has a double meaning. It's the acronym, but it's also because you say oops when you mess up on OLL. This wasn't a mess up, I just didn't know the OLL
