It literally doesn't matter how you scramble the cube as long as you're consistent with how you label the faces. The F move applies to the front face you picked when scrambling, whether it's green, red or purple.

true

Also, this was the easiest 21 I've ever done in FMC, skeleton was the first thing I did on inverse, all linear.

(L2 R2 F U2) //ps222+square
(D F U2) //ps223+square
(L' B U) //weird F2L
(B U' L U) //4c

Skeleton: U' L' U B' U' (1) B' L U2 F' D' U2 F' (2) R2 L2

1: U B D B' U' B D' B'
2: F L' F' R2 F L F' R2

Final: U' L' U D B' U' B D' B2 L U2 F' D' U2 L' F' R2 F L F' L2 (21)

Nah I used cube explorer cuz I didn't feel like doing an FMC attempt, but a 15 move optimal scramble is pretty rare.
