Nice idea. It will be more interesting if the black Pao made critical moves from g5, perhaps to selfblock on b5/c5

This is excellent! It is eye-catching that the arrival squares are all on the 5th rank.

And each is on a different file: ahec bgfd.
The first that I’ve seen such a task in a helpmate!
It also shows what Juraj Lorinc has described as “Repelling” in Conflictio No.25, page 6: A piece cannot arrive on a specific square or line as this would result in an illegal self-check.
