My mum didn't want me watching violent movies, and never bought me toy guns because she thought I'd turn out to be a violent individual.

She was fine, however, with me watching my sister play though Doom and Heretic.

Parents are interesting people.

Yoshi goes through doors all the time in Mario 64 DS.

He's overcome his fear. Or...

Super Mario 64 DS is Yoshi dreaming that he's the hero to rescue Peach

In this dream, Yoshi is able to open doors and conquer many obstacles that would otherwise prove to be a challenge for even Mario. But even in his dream, Mario is the one to defeat Bowser, and rescue the Princess, his subconscious finally coming to terms with the fact that he would likely never be as great a hero as Mario. As time goes on, he must take on the persona of others (via the caps) to even be able to complete the challenges, and finds himself cast aside in more extreme cases to make way for the other heroes to save the day. This comes to a head when even he cannot enter the final Bowser door; that true greatness will forever be beyond his reach. This realisation has a negative effect on the stricken Yoshi, and when he awakes on top of the castle to see Mario with all of the 120 stars (i.e: the original game), he concedes that Mario is the hero (albeit by hiding his insane jealousy), provides him with 100 lives then casts himself from the roof of the castle to his demise.

I need sleep.

But everybody likes Queen.

But everybody likes One Direction.

I would be fine with Pikachu being replaced only if it is by a giant replica of Shigeru Miyamoto's head that fires lasers at onlookers and spurts out new Mario titles from its mouth.

You're all welcome.

be warned: Mario ain't in it.

That wasn't from lack of trying; there was an effort made to get the Mario Brothers in the movie, but the licensing fees were quite exorbitant and apparently the requirements for the appearance itself were very strict.

Anyway, can't wait to see it when it comes out here. Just over a month to go, that's stupid...

Carbon monoxide.

What if I say I'm not like the others?

Maternal: English. Apparently a bit of Spanish somewhere along the line? But I think that was just to make me feel better.
Paternal: Australian as far back as I've cared to ask, that said I think my dad's side is Irish if it's back far enough.

For some reason, D reminds me of Courage the Cowardly Dog. So I'm voting for that one.

The number of votes for A is interesting, given that it's probably the safest option of the four.

My football team lost the grand final.

Also, I've lost faith in pretty much all of my close friends.

But mainly the football thing.

I don't think Disney would change too many things. Nintendo doesn't deviate too far from a lot of the family-friendly ideals that Disney typically hold, and I think Disney would pretty much leave them alone, thank goodness. Even more mature series like Metroid wouldn't come under threat, surely?

Thanks for the positive comments! I wrote this primarily based on a belief I held as a child; that when someone old dies, their soul is reused (for want of a better word) for the birth of a newborn. Of course, I don't think I knew back then that the birth rate was typically higher than the death rate, but it was a comforting thought nonetheless, especially when I saw elderly family friends in bad health. It's not something I really expressed in the story, but it was in mind when I wrote it.

I was thinking about using it for a larger story, and it's something that I wouldn't mind doing when I have some free time, but I really think I need a good idea for it, rather than just blazing away like I normally do. :P

Miyamoto's remark about Dr. Mario makes me sad because now all those people who make stupid jokes about Dr. Mario popping pills or being a quack now have more ammunition. :\

I actually kinda like the idea. Makes me think of him like Dr. Nick Riviera from The Simpsons...
