Three more random updates

pathvain_aelien stayed at my apartment for a while; in that time we watched the How To Train Your Dragon TV show! (Specifically, the third of the three shows there were. P_A, what was the third show called again? Dragons: Race to the Edge.) We made it to season 4. :) Have any of you watched it?

----

It's no secret that I've fallen really far behind on my plan to backup some of my Miiverse posts on LJ/DW once a week. So I have an idea of how to get on a regular schedule that I'll have more motivation to stick to: start posting them once every two weeks instead of one, and act as if this had been my schedule all along starting from my first Miiverse backup entry - meaning the second Miiverse backup entry is now retroactively considered to be posted a week early (being one week after the first rather than two), the third one is retroactively considered to be two weeks early (being two weeks after the first instead of four), and so on.

As I've posted 23 Miiverse backup entries so far, that means the next one would get posted 23×2=46 weeks after the first, which would be the week of... December 12? So this means I'm now "still" caught up! :)

Do me a favor. The next time I consider doing some sort of regular feature on LJ or DW that requires me to upload new images or post entries with images in them once a week, please remind me about this and try to convince me to bring it down to once every two weeks...

Finally, now that the last Super Smash Bros. Direct is out, I'll give you another taste of just how weird it is in the mind of Matt1993:

- When I first saw a screenshot of Kirby's Peach copy ability in Super Smash Bros. Melee (when I was 9), I somehow didn't realize that was Peach's crown - my mind jumped to the conclusion that King Bob-omb from Super Mario 64 was playable and either that was his pink alternate costume or Kirby's King Bob-omb copy ability.
- I made up an entire moveset for Mary O. & Yamamura from Super Mario Maker and posted it earlier this year. (And I've brought up the idea even earlier than that - see the music tag on that April Fools entry.)
- And somehow, despite all of that, I still at no point expected a Piranha Plant to be a playable character.

Also, why is it that so many Super Smash Bros. fans hate each other over who's playable or different opinions about who they want to playable?

So many fan favorite characters made it in - why do people still have to be angry that other characters they wanted weren't in? I especially don't like that a lot of Toad fans, Daisy fans, Waluigi fans, Pauline fans, Mary O. fans (OH WAIT, I'm the only Mary O. fanboy EVER apparently), and now the seemingly few Piranha Plant fans (but ESPECIALLY the Daisy and Waluigi fans) argue endlessly with each other about which of those characters deserve to be in SSB the most... can't they be more like me and get along with each other because obviously they all have one thing in common if they want more Mario characters, rather than hating each other over which Mario characters they want in? Like, Daisy and Piranha Plant weren't my first two choices for new Mario characters in SSB, but Daisy was one of my choices (and if I'd thought there was any way it could happen, Piranha Plant would have been one of them too), so I'm happy with it nonetheless. (But not happy with the fact that I feel like I'll be hated for it like how I thought I'd be hated for liking that Wii Fit Trainer and Dark Pit were in SSB4. And am still not entirely convinced that I won't be.)

I'm not even mad about how I was hoping Mary O. would be the unexpected out-of-nowhere character this time (since I knew there had to be one out-of-nowhere character, at least) and then there was an unexpected out-of-nowhere character that happened to be a Mario character but it wasn't Mary O. If anything, I'm amused by it. And hopeful because this could set the stage for increasingly unexpected Mario characters being in later Super Smash Bros. games until Mary O. finally gets in. :)

I also like how one of my ideas for Mary O.'s special moves was based on the Gnat Attack minigame and then suddenly that turns out to be an Assist Trophy.

You know what? I'm just going to pretend that's Mary O.'s hand and therefore Mary O. is an Assist Trophy after all.

"But Mary O. doesn't wear gloves--" Shut up! She does now in my head canon if it means I can pretend she's in Super Smash Bros. in any way whatsoever! ;)

Oh. Somehow I was under the impression that all three shows were "Dragons: <something> of Berk" (and that the one we were watching was indeed called "Race to the Edge" but also called something else with Berk in the name). :)

The other two are Dragons: Riders of Berk and Dragons: Defenders of Berk. :)

I see. I guess I thought "there's two with Berk in the name so I guess they all do" and thus kept getting confused by this one being called "Race to the Edge". :)

It is a change. :) Although it makes sense since they are far away from Berk in that show. :) Most of the time, anyway.

I just thought I heard you say "of Berk" three times (rather than two) when you were telling me what the three shows were called. :)

And we actually made it to season 5, we finished up the 4th season. :)

I know, I meant we made it through season 4. :)

I love that movie but never knew there was a tv show.  What was the show called?

Apparently there were three shows, but the only one pathvain_aelien and I were able to find was called Dragons: Race to the Edge. :)

I knew about one of the shows shortly after I saw How to Train Your Dragon for the first time, but we never started watching any of the three shows until just now. :)

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...
