ECE (I don't know the name of the different variants):
y2 // inspection
L' F D2 R' // Pseudo pairs (4/4)
U M U M' // EO + pair creation (4/8)
U2 R' U' D' R2 U R // SLS (7/15)
l2 d' R2 E' R' U R' U' R u' R2 F' U F // 6CP (14/29)
U' M U2 M U' M2 U2 // L6E (7/36)
36STM

Very happy with this solution. One of, if not the, most beautiful solutions I've ever done. Everything was intuitive except for SLS. CP is multiple cancellations into the wide-u variation of Ga which permutates multiple edges to give a favorable L6E. EO+pair creation was pure luck and it took me an odd amount of time to see. SLS is objectively better and more efficient than WV with little exploration. Pseudo pair was pretty easy as there were a lot of orientated corners. L6E is a very easy UR/UL case with a predictable 4c skip.

Excited to see more SSC/ECE solves There's a mistake on 6CP, Dw' not Dw.
