Nice solution as always! Would you say that the 3C cycle was found ‘live’ as you were finding your solution, or was it more of an insertion after the fact?

I’ll try my hand at ZZ-

(y)
B' U F2 U2 L' F D2 // EO-Line (7/7)
U L2 R' U2 // Two F2L Pairs (4/11)
L' U' L' U' R' U' // Squares (6/17)
R L' U2 L // F2L (-1e) (4/21)
U' R U' R' U2 // Antisune to 3e (5/26)
R2 E2 R' U R E2 R' // L3E Comm (7/33)

I’d say I did a pretty good job considering how little experience I have with RUL/ZZ stuff! I’m happy with this.

Not great, but fun insertions.

Thank you. I looked for an insertion after the fact.

U2 B U2 F D2 B2 D2 B' D2 F2 U F L B2 R F' D B' U' B2 F'
L2 B F L' D' U F // (7) EO-line (10 bad edges)
L' R U L' U R U2 R' U R // (10/17) right square + 2 pairs
L' U2 L2 U2 L U' L' U2 // (8/25) F2L-1 + last pair
R2 D R' U' R D' R2' // (7/32) Winter
U2' R2 U S R2' S' R2 U' R2' // (9/41) Fun PLL U on the side


With a different orientation:

(y) F' D' L2 R' F R' L' D' // (8) EOL (and more)
U' R' U L2 U2 R2 L' // (7/15) Right block
(y) R D R' U2 R D' R' // (7/22) 3-corner cycle
(y) R' U R U2 R U' R' U R' U' R U // (12/34) Right block again
