Hey, huge fan of this piece and WTC so this was super fun to look over! Initially I thought there were some errors with stem directions/voicing but after playing through it I realized I was mistaken.

So far as I can tell:
-Notes are accurate
-Enharmonics are all spelled correctly
-Everything is notated in familiar style for fugues (your effort in referencing WTC really shows!)

Only suggestions I can think of:
- The dotted line notation for voice crossing is used very seldomly in this style (it does show up, but your use it notably more liberal), at least in comparison the versions of WTC I have. That being said, its very common for piano reductions and thus something seen a lot in modern internet transcriptions so this isn't really a bad thing, just a stylistic choice between traditional and modern. Most people will fine the dotted lines easier to read, although people more familiar with Bach might find it cluttered.
- Consider adding fingering suggestions. These are common in a lot of version of the WTC and also, how you use your fingers is the big 'gotcha' when it comes to learning to play fugues. That being said, when I played through it everything up until the 4th voice was added felt relatively easy so I don't know how necessary that really is here.

Both of the above are optional and up to you and the updaters. This was really well executed and beautiful sheet! Keep up the good work!

The squiggle after the trill and the fermata at the end are unnecessary, as its already implied by the baroque style. You can still choose to leave them in though as a courtesy to people who may not know that.

yarg discord is 4 the hip kidz innit
im not a hip kidz :'(

Personally, I don't participate in discord communities because of the pacing. I just can't seem to be able to keep up with the conversation well enough to participate whereas forums give me the leisure to pop in, read the last 2 pages, say what I wanna, then peace out.

Oh my gosh I was actually 14
I feel way less bad about being so cringy

I clearly remember being 13 and I don't like it. I've stayed mostly bevause there really isn't a better place to post my arrangements when I get the tick.

oh huh, lemme finish my summer class and I'll get on that stuff

its so beautiful ;-;

although I think you meant half the tempo rather than double the tempo.

oops, yeah this^

Normally I would agree but the three voices are so well-established and distant that I'm fine with the conscious decision to keep everything where it originally is. If we were specifically trying to arrange a solo that'd be a different story.

It's uncharacteristic of piano fugues (I've never seen a three voice one arranged as a duet before) and I don't see anyone wanting to play a single line as their part.

If falls in that gray area of too much to be a solo but not enough to be a duet and I'm certaintly biased towards the former so idk

A few stylistic things I'd recommend here too:

-4/4 time
-cut note lengths in half and double the tempo
-With keyboard fugues you're almost always passing the middle voice between hands, not notating it in 3 staffs for duet. Granted this wasn't intended for keyboard but see what you can do -- adding in an extra hand to play a single line feels like more of a cop-out than the right arranging decision.

Here's an example of how this style of music generally looks:

Late but they explain the time travel by running away with the multiverse theory. They're alternate timelines/universes so they're not traveling back to their past selves, they're traveling to their current self in another universe that's at a different point in time. It's an easy way to work around plot holes in a time travel plot.

Which means if thanos didn't destroy the stones that universe would have two pairs of stones which godknows what that would of meant. Fighting thanos from another timeline before he had any stones was a lame ending imo -- of course our heroes are going to completely slaughter them

My A&P lab TA was like that. "Since you guys all want to be doctors (half of us were nursing students?) I'm going to teach this course at a med school level!" Had a 70% going into the final, class average was like a 40, teacher came in and just said "hey gurl, you can't fail everyone" so on the final she would raise our lowest exam grade to match our final grade if we did well on it. Problem was she kept the same difficulty and this test was on fucking neurology and special senses. I remember spending my entire thanksgiving break with a 200 essay question study guide for a 40 word test memorizing shit like the chemical pathway inside bitter taste buds when they contact chemicals and jesus christ >->

Sounds like it wasn't healthy it's a good thing you're willing to look towards the future rather than get stuck on this.
