Got this about a month ago, wanted to do a reconstruction here.
(1, 3) / (0, -3) / (-1, -1) / (0, -3) / (-2, -2) / (3, -1) / (-3, -3) / (-1, -2) / (-2, 0) / (-5, -4)

Solution:
(-1, -2) / (0, 2) / (1, -4) / (-3, -3) / cubeshape

(1, 3) / (3, 3) / (-1, -1) / co and eo

(1, 1) / (2, -1) / (1, 1) / (-3, 0) / (5, 3) cp skip, ep

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!

I got an 11.54, but when retrying got sub10

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.

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

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

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

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

1 move 2x2x2 that can be a 4 move XXCross that can also be a 13STM F2L with the default OLL giving a U-Perm finish. Best scramble of all time?

/* Scramble */
F2 R' F D2 F2 U2 L2 F' D2 B' U2 F D F U2 R D B2 R2

/* Solve */
x2 // Inspection

L F R' F // XXCross

U2 R' U' M F U' R U M' // F2L

y F R U R' U' S R U R' U' f' // OLL

U M2 U M' U2 M U M2 // PLL

I'm an idiot and did L R' F R', which only made a single XCross. I still got a sub-10 on it though which is incredible for me
