R.I.P. Mary O... again...

(Yes, I'm probably going to be posting about my favorite manual guide a lot more than usual for a while, what with Super Mario Maker 2 coming out this month and Mary O.'s fate still unclear and still not looking good.
I apologize in advance because that means these posts are probably going to get even more annoying than usual.
But I recently discovered that I seem to be the biggest Mary O. fanboy in the world if stuff from my own journal shows up so often in Google searches for her, so hey, I may as well embrace it!)

Well, with SMM2 coming out this month and Mary O.'s fate-- oh wait, I said that already in the disclaimer.

To make a long story short:

Notice how I FINALLY have a userpic with Mary O. in it? (I mean, I did have Enya dressed as Mary O. as a userpic, but I FINALLY have one with Mary O. herself!) :D

I also made these ones, but I won't upload them as userpics until I know they're legible enough. So, I ask you: Are these ones legible?

EDIT: Per a comment on DW, I already attempted to improve the legibility of the 1st, 2nd, and 5th ones. So, are THESE legible?

EDIT: Per another comment on DW, here's some more attempts at making the first two more legible. So, in addition to the above, which of these versions of the first two are legible enough? If any? (these are all in one image to save time, so click to enlarge)

I've been wanting to make userpics with Mary O. in them for YEARS now, but until now I never got around to it. Mainly because I had the dumb idea of saving all of my userpic ideas - Mary O. or otherwise - for the next time I got around to making another poll asking which ones you wanted me to make. Which no one likely would have voted on because it would've been too long to read.

And the fact that Mary O. is seemingly being replaced in Super Mario Maker 2 is making me sad about it... and the fact that Nintendo has deleted EVERY trace of Mary O.'s memory from the official site (e.g. the online manual and Super Mario Maker Crash Course) is making me even MORE sad about it... thank goodness the Internet Wayback Machine saved SMM Crash Course and kind of saved the manual!

So I figured, if Nintendo is not going to keep Mary O. or Super Mario Maker Crash Course around forever, then I'll just have to immortalize the best Mary O. and Yamamura moments myself (the ones that'd make userpics I'm sure I'll have a use for, anyway).

Hopefully she will come back!

Hopefully. :(

I keep checking the Mary O., Yamamura, Nina, and Super Mario Maker 2 articles on Super Mario Wiki over and over just to see if there's ANY indication one way or the other about Mary O. being replaced by Nina vs. both of them being in the game. But apparently no one on Super Mario Wiki cares as much as I do, because they haven't even acknowledged Mary O.'s absence or Nina's presence (the two Ninas who have articles at this point are completely unrelated characters) in any way. :(

Are the userpics legible? If so, which version of each is the most legible? That was the main point of the entry. :)

Yes, they are. They look equally legible to me.

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...
