Okay, so be wary of future ones, but not this one. Got it.

Is there any obvious indication by the "days left to turning" timer that I'm off-trail for the good ending, too? Like, outside of some hypothetical scenario if I somehow screwed up so badly, I got only 1 day left by Easy Way.

I am pretty sure there is no way to get into a situation where you can't reach the good ending except for choosing to enter the endgame without doing all the required sections first

I do have a tiny bit of advice about that set of questions. Two of them, Beethro actually finds the answer out himself no matter what. The ones that would give the story the greatest amount of non-redundant exposition are the ones about A1 and the Pit Thing.

Real quick, while I'm at it, is there ever a way to simply "run out of time" before the Turning and be forced into the bad ending that way? Or is it impossible to ever truly run out of time and it's just a red herring/just for show?

The timer only advances at fixed intervals as you go further into the story. It's not going to run out on you while you're in the middle of a dungeon.

So it is not affected by my actions? Is the number hardcoded so this cutscene is always T minus 115 days and that scene is T minus 100?

I'm a little worried because I don't try for fast solutions (I spent 8000 turns in the secret Gentryii room), and sometimes I get burned out and have to stop playing for a week or two.

Don't worry, the game is not that smart.

It's not like something like... Undertale.
