Submission Text Full Submission Page
Thanks to Fortranm for pointing out that this glitched ending might be faster than the H ending; although he was talking about the PSX version, which turned out to be the case for SFC too after the sliding skip for cutscenes was discovered during my S ending run.
I will leave it to the judges to decided whether or not this is worthy of a new branch, or if it should simply replace the recently published any% run.

Comments

The main "glitch" present in this run, for those who have not played the game, is the skipping of the cutscene where Anne drowns in the pool, allowing Jennifer to reach the car without witnessing any of her friends dying (and in particular, without seeing Scissorman). This is not supposed to be allowed to happen, so the game does not know which ending to display when the title screen is reached resulting in a blank screen. In the post-credits game, Ending D is marked as being completed, although this is not Ending D (it is closest to Ending G/H).

Fog: Judging.
Fog: Good run! It's funny to see what happens to the game when you skip things in unintended ways.
However, I did not find the run entertaining enough to maintain the current tier of Moons. The audience reception to both this submission and the previous publication confirm my thoughts.
There was also some discussions regarding if this run would obsolete the previous publication, but I haven't really seen any compelling reasons to keep this as a separate branch.
Accepting to Vault as an improvement to the previous publication!
Spikestuff: Quick Pub coming in.

I'm going to vote Meh. There's nothing documenting anything about this glitch in the author's comments. Which I hope you actually do go in and edit your comment about it. I'm mainly voting Meh again as it's not best ending and it's not worst ending so it kinda confuses me. This is a really mixed bag to me, so best of luck to the outcome that you want. I'll claim this, if it gets accepted.

Sorry about that Spike. I updated the submission text, but just to say it again, this run reaches the car without seeing either friend die (and in particular, without seeing Scissorman) thanks to skipping the cutscene where Anne drowns in the pool. This confuses the game, as it does not know which ending to display in the credits and therefore just presents a blank screen. Afterward, Ending D is marked as being complete, although this is pretty clearly not Ending D.

Eh, I guess it would make sense to replace the current any% run. Giving it a Meh.
effort on the first draft means less effort on any draft thereafter - some loser

This is very interesting, so I'm voting Yes. Also, I hope to see a separate branch for this run. Every ending shows off a different route and thus different game content, so I don't see problems with entertaining about this. The record keeping may also be a reason, since the speedrunning community takes note of records for every different ending with same dignity.
my personal page - my YouTube channel - my GitHub - my Discord: ThunderAxe31#1512 <Masterjun> if you look at the "NES" in a weird angle, it actually clearly says "GBA"

Proposal to make the opening of the submission text or the publication text as follows:
Jennifer is a rebellious teenage orphan who is kindly adopted by the Barrows family. Upon arriving at their mansion, she ungratefully punches a hole in their wall, steals the Barrows' car, and drives through their garage door. Clock Tower's core message is that teenage girls are the true monsters.

This run probably should obsolete the Ending H run for any% category, but I do think the Ending H run is pretty unique for its insane RNG manipulation that makes scissorman go away immediately in the garage. It would be great if an all endings run is ever made.

How anti-climatic, a horror game without horror and a car that needs you to get out of it a few times before it starts. Yes Vote for comic factor for me.

Even though this run is not action packed, it completes the game in a fun way and I can't help but give it an approximation of a 'yes' vote.

tfw obsoleting your own movie results in a tier reduction
