Whatever Matt Feels Like Posting

This is where I post my incoherent ramblings. It's where I post the coherent ones, too!

Finally updating my profile for the first time in years! @ 01:58 am

Right now I am annoyingly: happy happy
Soundtrack: Kid Icarus: Uprising - Dog's Theme (at this point, I almost want to say that whoever here hasn't played KI:U probably should just so you might understand most of my choices for background music :P ...

Apparently, the last time I updated my LJ profile was in 2013 or 2014.


I still haven't made all of the changes I want to make, but I figure I'd mention that I'm working on it so that if you want, you can check it every now and then and see what I've updated. :)

(Note that some of the more negative things on my profile - particularly the "Dark Matt1993" LJ Trading/Tarot cards - are left over from the time I updated my profile in 2012 or 2013. I'll probably leave those up for posterity, but clarify that I've finally less worried about everyone seeing me that way. :) )

(That gave me an idea, actually... maybe I should make LJ Trading and Tarot cards based on all of my userpics? That would actually be a good way to explain some of the ones with inside jokes in them! Probably not any time soon and/or for my profile, though...)

EDIT: I forgot to mention: comments on the updates to the profile as I work on it are more than welcome :) Also, why did no one tell me that I put a LJ-cut instead of a repost button below by accident at first?

Huzzah! I would say yes to the Tarot card idea but there are a million other things you want to do as well, so maybe not. :)

I think I'm more likely to go through with the trading cards for every userpic than I am to go with the Tarot card idea, though, now that I've thought up some possible elemental types (some from actual RPGs, some... not), interactions between said types, and a few other properties.

For example:
- Userpics with Enya in them would do much less (or maybe no) damage to "Cat-type" userpics like my Garfield one because Enya loves cats.
- The /crazymegavideo/ userpic would recover health when attacking Water-type userpics (any userpic that happens to have water in it even in the background).
- "Rant-type" (e.g. "game theory ruined my life!", "who is scully?!"... maybe it should be the "Yell" type instead) and "Depression-type" (e.g "sad stick war") userpics do extra damage to my default userpic, but take extra damage from the painbow one.
- Instead of attacking, the Backmask Mushroom userpic would be an item that would undo the opponent's last move.

I'm still not 100% set on doing this because there's some userpics (such as this one) that I'm not sure what the best way to treat them is. Even if I did, I wouldn't go all out and make a complete set of gameplay rules - I'd just try to make the userpics' stats as consistent with each other as possible. :)

I just waited almost an hour - or maybe even more - before posting this comment just because I couldn't stop thinking of more ideas. But still not enough that I'm sure I could go through with it eventually. :(
