How Does Library FTK Work?
The deck usually wins during any turn that a Royal Magical Library hits the field and does not have its effect interrupted by a card like Book of Moon, Ring of Destruction, etc. Giant Trunade is Library FTK’s other key combo piece, which can both clear the backrow before Royal Magical Library is summoned, or return continuous spells to add spell counters to Royal Magical Library. Spell Reproduction is played in order to repeatedly activate copies of Giant Trunade. By using Giant Trunade to return Convulsion of Nature and Archfiend’s Oath, drawing through the entire deck in a single turn is quite easy.
The best win condition to use is Reversal Quiz + Black Pendant, due to the fact that these two combo pieces are spells that can be discarded to Spell Reproduction or add spell counters to Royal Magical Library. However, other win conditions like 3 Blasting the Ruins, Non-Aggression Area + Last Turn, or Exodia are also possible.

Why Library FTK is Viable
Because of its high FTK rate (about 50%), the deck is less susceptible to sidedeck cards than similar combo decks in the format like Empty Jar. Because it kills so quickly, it performs very well in combo vs combo matchups, which are more common than they used to be. Like other FTK decks in Yu-Gi-Oh!’s history, Library FTK has few obvious weaknesses short of “losing to itself.” Library FTK is sparsely played not to due to a lack of viability but moreso due to the community’s negative stigma of FTK decks.

If the last card in the deck is Quiz, you just draw into it, Feather any card to the top, and then Quiz for game.

Feather totally skipped my mind and is way better than what I thought of, which was to add a second quiz.

How do you send Black Pendant to the graveyard from the field? I understand that you get to 500 lp and switch it with your opponents but I don't see how to consistently finish it off.

When you activate Reversal Quiz, it sends all cards on your field to the GY. If you have a black pendant on field when you activate Reversal Quiz, the reversal happens, then Black Pendant inflicts the damage. So just finish the game by activating quiz with 500 or fewer LP, and call the correct card type (which you know because of convulsion of nature.)

How does Pendant not miss timing? It says when it is sent to the GY, inflict 500 damage. Shouldn't it inflict damage as soon as it is sent to GY and then reversal quiz swaps LP?

There is no "you can" in black pendant's card text, so the trigger effect of inflicting damage when it is sent from field to grave is mandatory, not optional. So timing never becomes an issue.
