Well this is gonna be something....

Hi everybody! I just thought this thread should be created, so here it is! This is how it works, in case you didn't know:

1) If you decide to post, then you will scramble your 5x5 using the scramble provided by the most recent reply.
2) You will then record every move as to how you solved your puzzle, and post that along with a new scramble for the next person.
3) BEFORE YOU POST: It is recommended that you check your solve using this site: https://alg.cubing.net/?puzzle=5x5x5, just to make sure you recorded it correctly.

So I'll start it off with a scramble generated by cstimer.net:

Tried multiple ways of doing the edge pairing (including using NISS!), but this 55-move solution was the best I found by quite a few moves (second best was 61 moves).

61 moves edge pairing on inverse:
D r F R F' r R' F' L R F r2
F2 U' b' D' F2 D U' L U L' b
u d2 B U' B' u' F' D F d2
D B U l' r D2 l r'
D' R u2 R' U' R B' U B u' R U' R2 U R B' L B L' u'

333 stage:
D2 B L2 F2 B' D // 223-corner (6/6)
U' L' R B L R' // EO (6/12)
B2 U' B' U B2 U' // F2L-2 (6/18)
U B' U2 B' @ D' F R2 F' D B2 U2 B' // tripod LL alg; ab3c (12-3/27)
@ = [B2, D' F' D] // corner 3-cycle (8-4/31)

This started out as a 5x5x5FMC attempt but I got tired of it and finished with CFOP.
