A build meant to hit a protoss on two sides with harass, both a liberator and a mine. send the medivac with 1 mine + 6 marines to the farther base and the liberator to a nearby base, while you drop siege the liberator into another base.

Transition to MMM Lib.

This is my personal build, criticism welcome.

I was just trying to hit the exact gas for a medivac and a LIB when testing diferent openers, since I was at the time too paranoid about cheese I just scv scouted everygame, not having much reason to build a reaper against P I just built a marine instead. My idea was to try and be eficient, avoiding iddle time on the starport and hitting as early as possible.

Doing a standard reaper FE can work just fine, the problem is that the medivac + lib wont start that close to each other, so you either wait for the lib to finish before moving with the drop, wich is a delay, or you go with them staggered and risk getting the drop cleaned before the lib hits.

Can you explain your reasoning behind building the marine instead of a reaper to get a faster factory? Obviously you will get your drop and liberator harass faster, but is it necessary? Are you trying to hit before a Protoss timing? What do you lose?
