Gummi Brennarios, attack!*

Somewhat boring MSL excerpt today, but at least I wrote today :)

←Part 4 (unedited) Part 6→

"But I don't have any extra lives, so shouldn't we change it to you or Enya?" I replied.

"Actually, you-a do have-a extra lives. Whenever I-a begin a quest-a like this, anyone-a travelling with me and I-a always start-a with five lives, so you-a and Luigi have five right-a now and Enya and I-a have six."

"Even though Enya and I came from a different universe?"

"Yep. And don't-a worry about how-a only you are-a represented on-a the flag; Luigi, Blue Toad, and Yellow Toad came with-a me on my-a last adventure, and no matter-a who touched-a the checkpoints, if we all-a died, we'd-a all be brought back to them."

So not only are Toads named after their species too, but also after the color of their spots? That sounds racist. I bet another color of Toads had their own Hitler or Ku Klux Klan at some point in history.

I have no idea how the details of checkpoint flags make sense, but it works for me. As we were talking, the Luma had moved a short distance to the right and stopped. "Follow me! Careful! Oct[hipmunks]!" he called, looking impatient. Enya, Luigi, and I started to, while Mario went to the left to get a large coin with a question mark on it. As soon as he grabbed it, a line of flashing rainbow musical notes appeared out of nowhere, down part of the way the rest of us were headed, past some Octhipmunks and over a short abyss. I heard a mysterious ticking noise begin as well. As all of us (except for the Luma) collected the notes, they played an ascending scale (regardless of the order we collected them in).

Collecting them all stopped the ticking and made four 1-Up Mushrooms appear out of nowhere. Once they landed, though, they all slid away from each other at exactly right angles, making tapping noises somehow. Only Luigi and I managed to catch any, because the other two committed suicide (strangely falling straight downward instead of into the black hole).

Come to think of it, can a 1-Up Mushroom eat another 1-Up Mushroom? And if so, if I then ate it, would I get one or two lives? Or one full life and a fraction of another, depending on how much the first 1-Up Mushroom to be eaten has digested? If two 1-Up Mushrooms touched, which one would eat the other? Or would they both eat each other, resulting in both of them losing a life while gaining a life, and thus them still having the same amounts of lives?

Anyway, after that, Enya went into the middle of a perfect circle of stones and spun, which made the stones turn into Star Bits somehow (which, of course, we collected). How does she know this stuff? To the left in the distance was a blue panel thing which Enya stepped onto and spun (my point exactly), causing her, the Mario Bros., and I to all teleport to a nearby hexagonal platform with seven Octhipmunks and four flashing rainbow stars. We each touched one of the stars, which made us have rainbow trails behind us and, for some reason, look like gummies. Resisting the urge to eat ourselves or each other, we ran straight into the Octhipmunks, knocking them all out and collecting the resulting Star Bits (one of which made the 1-Up chime when Luigi touched it). Four 1-Up Mushrooms appeared out of nowhere. Why is it always four? Was it prophecied that we'd be here or something?

After eating them, we (now no longer rainbow gummies) teleported back to the teleporter, which had now turned red. The Luma was waiting for us on a nearby ledge, so we followed him to the top of a narrow building with those platform generators around it.

"Let's fly!" he said at the top, turning into a Star Launch, leading us to one of a cluster of tiny planets only slightly bigger than the four of us stacked on top of each other. Luigi backflipped off the bottom (well, the bottom relative to that last planet, anyway) of it and launched himself from a Star Launch "below" it into another question-mark coin, making some regular coins appear.

After collecting the coins and launching from two more Launch Stars, we landed on a cylindrical planet with several black holes in it.

*Aw gnat! I should've used the term "Team Brennario" in-universe before part 5 so I could use this line in MSL itself! :(

..."leading us to one of a cluster of tiny planets only slightly bigger than the four of us stacked on top of each other..." :) Favorite part!

First the Launch Star, now the tiny planets...why is it Moya's descriptions of the scenery are apparently funnier than the parts that I intended to be funny?

Blurb

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
