It's been a while:
U R L F U2 F
U L U L'
r' F r U2 y R U R'
U r' F' r2 B r'
y' R U' R' U R U' R'
R2 D' R U' R' D R U' R U R' U R U'
Nothing very exciting, a pretty easy scramble. I might have done a different cross + 1 in a normal solve, but I liked this

your solution doesn't work for me :/ maybe you mis-wrote a move
EDIT: I get it, the 2nd step was done on the inverse scramble

F' B' R' U B U2 L' x2' //Cross
R' U' R y U2 R' U' R //1st pair
L' U L U2 L U L' //2nd pair
U L' U2 L U L' U' L //3rd pair
y' R' U R //4th pair
U2 R U R' U R U2 R' //AUF+Sune
U' R2 U R' [U' y] (R U R' U')2 R U R' y' R U' R2' //Worst PLL alg maybe, or worst execution of an alg

60 moves if I counted correctly, 5 rotations
my solves are super inefficient, I must check that out...

Next Scramble: B R2 B2 R' U2 R2 D2 L B2 F2 R2 D R' U' R U' L2 R D2 B'

For this scramble, I have tried something I have had in my mind for quite a long time.
I have found this solution without using any cube (physical nor simulator).
As I would do in a blind solve, I solved edges and corners separately with commutators.
First, I tracked every edge to see the permutation cycle (and check if there were any flipped). This was easier than I had thought.
I have found this.

(UR BU DR FL LB FR BD DF UF UL)(DL RB)

Now I use commutators to "solve" these cycles. Actually I "copy" these cycle, so I am matching the scramble instead of solving it. No big deal, I just have to invert the final solution to get one for this scramble.
The easiest way would be to just do a blind solve, but I struggled I little bit to save moves, in order to see if I could get under the 80HTM limit for a legal FMC solve.
I could break the first big cycle into 3-cycles in any order, and I choose this one. There are probably better ways to solve edges, but I didn't want to think to much about it.

(A) (UF UL UR) = [F2 U: M', U2] = F2 U R' L F2 R L' U F2
(B) (UF BU DR) = [M', B' R B] = R' L U' R' U R L' B' R B
(C) (UF FL LB) = [L' U L, E] = L' U L U D' B' U' B U' D
(D) (UF FR BD) = [U2: M, U R U'] = U2 R L' B R B' R' L U R' U

Then I solve the 2-2 cycle left.

(E) (UF DF)(DL RB) = [U B U': (L2 F2)3] = U B U' L2 F2 L2 F2 L2 F2 U B' U'

Same thing for corners. One was twisted, so I use a different notation for the permutation.

UBL->BLU
UFL->LFD->DBR->UFR->RFD->LBD->URB->FUL

(1) (UBL UFL LFD) = [U', L D L] = U' L D L' U L D' L'
(2) (URB FUL UBL) = [F R' F', L] = F R' F' L F R F' L'
(3) (UFR RFD LBD) = [R U R', D2] = R U R' D2 R U' R' D2
(4) (DBR UFR URB) = [D: B2, D F2 D'] = D B2 D F2 D' B2 D F2 D2

Now I can use this commutators in any order, as long as the relative order of the pieces of the same kind remains the same (i.e. I cannot use (2) before (1), but I can do either (A) (B) (1), (A) (1) (B), (1) (A) (B)). To cancel more moves, I used this order:

(1) (A) (2) (B) (C) (D) (E) (3) (4)

At this point I checked the solution on my cube and it was extremely satisfactory to see everything going as I expected :)
Inverting and cancelling gives the following solution:

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

alg.cubing.net

79 HTM, just under the limit :)
There are many ways to improve this "method", but I just wanted a success, and I am satisfied with the result.

D2 R B' D R2 L' U R' U' L U R D' R D F U' B2 U F' U' B' D U' L U2 L' U D (29)

Just barely sub-30, didn't have time to explore R and U EO.
Almost linear skeleton:
D2 R B' D R2:U D' R D [2x2x3]
U'.B D U' L U2 L' U D [L4C]

.=U F U' B2 U F U' B2
:=L' U R' U' L U R U'

Interesting stuff on the inverse with parity: D2 B' D' B' [EO] L R2 U' L U' R' D R [Blocks]
