Hello. I'm Akamia, The Truth Troper. A fan of the Ace Attorney games, and in training to become a prosecutor. Upon finding this place, I decided I wanted to get in on the fun.
This troper displays examples of:
- TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life: Subverted; You would think that I would have ruined my life by now. But no... I actually feel fine. Quite decent in Real Life.
- Big Eater: No weight gain here. I happen to be a bit athletic.
- Deadpan Snarker: Internets. It's a given, really.
- Crusading Lawyer: Inspired by Miles Edgeworth, no less, this is what I want to become.
- Beware the Nice Ones: I can be a bit sour from time to time. Sometimes, it gets worse.
- Promoted Fanboy: Working on this in 2 ways. Prosecutor and professional game developer.
- Fan Dumb/Hate Dumb: Yes, I can be these. Let's all be honest, who hasn't been these?
- Only Sane Man: Yep. I've been there.
- Surrounded by Idiots: Been there. Also somewhat overlaps with my Only Sane Man moments at times.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: Yep. I do this every now and then.
- Smart People Play Chess
- Ridiculous Procrastinator: I'm a terrible (awesome?) procrastinator...
- Hidden Depths
- You Are Number Six: On the internet, I usually go by Akamia179 (supposed to be Akamia-179, a la Halo SPARTAN name system)
- Arc Number: 7. Favorite number, and 7 is actually a big part of my everyday life. (No, I don't play Halo everyday, before you get to thinking about it)
- What Could Have Been: I was originally going to become a comedian and/or a detective.
- Rule of Three: Prosecutor, independent game developer, voice actor (in my own games, as well as others').
- Berserk Button: I have quite a handful of these, actually. For example:
- Say "critics" and "Sonic the Hedgehog" in the same sentence when I'm in a bad mood. Those critics really need to get their heads on straight or get out. They are the reason my favorite characters end up in the bus.
- TotalBiscuit, a YouTube video game critic, is an exception. Even if he dislikes games I like, at least he's able to take a stand against more important threats than potentially bad video games. He's got my respect.
- Doctor "Whooves"...? No, just... no... Please, don't ever call him that. The Nth Doctor situations outside the context of specific 'verses (as that particular Doctor seems to fluctuate) are the exception to this rule. In fact, it's gotten to the point where I actively refuse to title stories based around this Doctor "Doctor Whooves" out of spite.
- MST3K Mantra: My form of Nightmare Retardant. Doesn't always work, however.
- Wild Mass Guessing: I avert this when I can, and try to gather evidence to make a solid argument. Not really "wild mass guessing", if it's not all that wild, and you're not that far into "guessing".
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Played straight in Real Life, and otherwise played with on the Internet. I don't like cursing at all, but sometimes on the internet, I end up doing so. It kind of helps to get my point across.
- The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything/Royals Who Actually Do Something: A transition from the former to the latter; I was a young Private Eye with no work. Then I became a Prosecutor in a volunteer group for youths and got lots of cases.
- Captain Obvious: Sometimes, I'm told to be this. But I mostly avoid it.
- Epic Fail: In Bomberman and it's expies; more often than not, I score zero, or go negative when that's even possible.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Happens in many of my games when I make a bad grenade throw or a bad rocket launch, but there was one time in Global Agenda on a High Security instance when I was blown to bits by my own freaking Rocket Turret!
- Doesn't Like Guns: Formerly. I've changed my mind. My various Author Avatars will retain this, however, but eventually drop it.
- The Stoic: I have my moments...
- Not So Stoic: ... but they don't hold too long if one knows me well enough that I can come out of my shell.
- The Lancer: In any Five-Man Band I happen to be in, this is me.
- The Atoner
- Break the Cutie
- Leitmotif: Many. I like to think of Rider of the Sky by Ace as one of mine. As well as Souls Electric by Brokenkites and Fragrance of Dark Coffee.
- Self-Deprecation: I really don't like myself. This is actually one of the many driving forces behind my writing; to see if I can do anything to improve my overall character, even if I have to place myself in a... "fictional" environment to do it. Going this way eventually turned up an I Hate Past Me situation. Of course, I'm hoping this might happen anyway a few more years down the road, if I ever get out of this swamp. I just might.
- Cordon Bleugh Chef: My mom. Decent, most of the time, but when she experiments...
- Shut Up, Hannibal!: Did one of these in the Bungie.net Halo Reach forums once.
- Broken Bird
- Verbal Tic:
Person: <insert latest news or advice here>Me: I see.
- Gone Mad From The Revelation: Not exactly, but I'm pretty angry that the current Sonic style might mean I will never play as my favorite Sonic characters (Not a single one of them being Sonic himself) ever again.
- The Comically Serious: Played with.
- Old Shame: I'm starting to see one of my characters in a Sonic the Hedgehog fanfiction I wrote as a God-Mode Sue. I'm too far into writing it to stop it, now, so I'm just going to roll with it for the time being. After his story's done, I'm going to write another fanfiction that is a sequel to the aforementioned fiction with the God-Mode Sue, but with more balanced characters.
- Ironically, the Old Shame happens to be the fanfiction's Author Avatarnote .
- Crippling Overspecialization: Why I can't use rocket launchers in Halo. Specifically, I'm used to aiming for one's face rather than their feet.
- Never My Fault: I give off this feeling to my little brother... Hmm...
- Take a Third Option: When there are two options in a question on a forum and I don't like either of them, I invoke this.
- Feigning Intelligence: I know people like this.
- The Assimilated: Into the Herd. Not that I was unwilling. Turnabout Storm sparked my interest, I sought supplementary information, I liked the show, I stuck with it.
- Troper Types:
- Wiki Walk: On more than one wiki, this is how I spend my time when I'm not doing anything else.
- Gateway Series: Sonic the Hedgehog for platformers, Halo for what would now be considered conventional first person shooters, MechWarrior for 'Mech simulators (the only one I play thus far), Toontown Online for MMORPGs, Ace Attorney for visual novels (though that's currently the only one I do, anyway). Also, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for fighting games.
- Complaining About People Not Liking The Game: A sort of odd, Exact Words/Insistent Terminology variant with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3; If someone tells me the game is bad, I'll tell them it's not, and go on to explain why it's not. If they tell me they just don't like it, I'm fine with it. I might have questions as to why they don't like it, but I won't complain.
- Friendly Sniper/Cold Sniper: I am an example of both of these only because I use sniper rifles in shooters when I have the opportunity. On one hand, I can be very friendly to others during a game, and perhaps even helpful. On the other, I'm usually pretty cynical.
- I Call It "Vera": Recently, after getting into MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries again, I started naming my 'Mech variants after my favorite characters from my favorite series. This has led to a few Twilight Sparkles and other ponies/non-ponies from that series, a Zeus by the name of Ryuuchi Naruhoudou, a Masakari by the name of Reiji Mitsurugi, a Shadow Cat by the name of Mia Fey, and I think I have a Shadow in there somewhere...
- You Keep Using That Word: Happens to me more often than I'd like to admit. Some examples might even be in this very page!
- First-Person Smartass: If Real Life can have these, I'd be one of many. If you say or do something incredibly stupid or ridiculous, chances are I'm thinking something snide or sarcastic about it.
- Serious Business: Story writing - very specifically, consistency. If there's an established canon in a series, and I notice a contradiction that isn't somehow explained in a way that makes sense (i.e. plothole), and I can't make my own sense of it, I'm going to have a problem. In fanfiction, I'm more lenient. I don't even care about a source's canon in fanfiction, so long as there's as few internal plotholes/contradictions as possible.
- Recently, the name of the Doctor has become pretty serious to me, in light of all the times I see "Doctor Who"/"Doctor Whooves/Hooves/Whoof" tossed around. Being the Fandom Berserk Button the former is, I'm appalled that the latter isn't some form of Fandom Heresy on equal or greater ground. Sure, Friendship is Magic (or its comic) explicitly calling him "The Doctor" would bring the BBC's lawyers down on their asses, so they have to be tactful about it. We, the fandom, don't have to! That's the great thing about us! We can get the stuff done right that they legally can't! On the other hand, if you write this character as an offshoot of the Doctor (like, say, making him a Time Lord, but native to the Ponyverse, and actually named Doctor Whooves/Hooves/Whoof) instead of the genuine article, then this issue is very cleanly sidestepped... But so long as you make it clear!
- David Versus Goliath: In MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries (MekTek version), I sometimes play with the Elemental against the Assault 'Mechs for kicks. I was even a Demonic Spider to a Kodiak pilot once. On No Heat, Unlimited Ammo, where Assault 'Mechs are (usually) the undisputed kings of the battlefield, while this is less true in Heat On, Limited Ammo.
- Let's Play: Currently doing one of MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries, and just finished one with Houdini Jr 100 and my brother through Castle Crashers, though I have doubts they meet all the criteria TV Tropes uses.
- Self-Insert Fic: I have a habit of writing these. I started writing with a Mary Sue (don't all of us?), then I progressively got better. Right now, I've got a "true" Self-Insert where the literal me (in 2032) is literally zapped into Equestria (in 2032), as a small part of a Mega Crossover me and a friend write. With this current Self-Insert, I will start playing it straight, though I have every intention to deconstruct the trope, then reconstruct it quite a bit afterward.
- World of Badass: In every story I write (particularly in my Mega Crossover Fanverse), every god damn character in there has to be a Badass. Even the characters I don't like. Non Action Guys inevitably become Badass Pacifists if they weren't already, or become Badass some other way if pacifism (implicit or otherwise) isn't quite a character trait. Even I became a Badass, though really, there are a ton of other characters more badass than I am, including evil Mooks. Reality Ensues quite often for me.
- Literal-Minded: On a rare occasion.
- Comically Missing the Point: Sometimes.
- All Stories Are Real Somewhere: A necessary assumption for the entire premise of my (actually, our) Mega Crossover Fanverse to even work. Downplayed; the stories in question are not necessarily real in their most literal forms in the context of this 'verse. Mostly, its just different versions of these stories with (I hope) fewer Plot Holes.
- Daydream Believer: Formerlynote . But I still like the idea, and hope that maybe it's possible.
- Tranquil Fury: My anger usually takes this form.
- The World Is Just Awesome: Had an experience like this during an airplane flight.
- You Are Not Alone: I sometimes go out of my way to talk to people that are sitting by themselves for whatever reason, because in my personal experience, there's usually something wrong when they do that, and they may need someone to talk to. I respect the decision of actually wanting to be left alone, though.
- Power Trio: With Houdini Jr 100 and my brother Agent J/Church5000/Church/Leonard Church/Captain Bingo Doggenspeed/every other name he has.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Elements of this with both of them. Mostly with Church.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Well, everything is relative... I'd probably be considered a total nutbar in some circles. In fact, I might already be considered a total nutbar in some circles, and not know it yet. The feeling is mutual.
- Real Men Wear Pink: Hello, I'm a brony. Have we met?
- Hypocritical Humor: Sometimes I will use an item (or 'Mech) that I really, really hate just for the sake of being ironic, or perhaps because I find it funny. I've already done this with the Atlas BattleMech two or three times.
- Insistent Terminology: "Doctor Whooves" is not his name. He's simply called "The Doctor", as he always has been. Of course, whenever The Nth Doctor comes up in a discussion, I will refer to that version of the character as "Doctor Whooves" to avoid confusion. And of course, legal issues with calling the character "The Doctor" in the Ascended Fanon side of things makes my arguments difficult, but the truth of the matter is, that is my stance on the whole issue.
- The Quiet One: Usually, when in a group event. Sometimes, when by myself with someone else... Yeah, that makes sense... Kinda.
- Motor Mouth: If one can draw me out of my shell, I can come up with entire walls of text or, in-person, talk non-stop for a good 2-4 minutes. Usually when talking about something I really, really enjoy. Like Minecraft. Or Doctor Who. Or My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Or Sonic the Hedgehog. Or Ace Attorney. Or crossovers. Or fanfiction. Or crossover fanfiction. Pressing one of my Berserk Buttons (some of them can be Fandom Berserk Buttons, but these are extremely downplayed on my end of things - you can ask my best friend, if you want) can easily provoke this behavior, as well. Naturally so, since I rarely actually go "berserk"...
- Nice Hat: I have lots of these. Seriously, my room has a whole bunch of hats in it. And I keep buying more. Wearing these is part of my "Iconic Outfit" in my hometown.
- Bowties Are Cool: I wear one to court for this reason. Yes, I thought they were cool long before I ever started watching Doctor Who. I just never had one to wear until fairly recently, after I started watching Doctor Who. My friends in my hometown seem to love the bowtie. Whovians, non-Whovians, doesn't seem to matter.
- Borrowed Catchphrase: If I had a hat for every Catch Phrase I've borrowed from all my favorite media... Oh wait, I think I do.
- Catch Phrase: I think I may actually have one to myself, although I'm not entirely sure if I picked it up from somewhere else and forgot the source, or if I really did think it up on my own.
"Everything is relative."
- Rummage Sale Reject: Once again, everything is relative. I don't have a concept of "this goes with that". It sort of goes like this: put on the bare necessities, then put on whatever I think looks cool (bowtie, maybe a fez or sombrero, and I also have a winged Rainbow Dash baseball cap to wear) afterward. Rarely does anyone take notice.
- Doing It for the Art: A lot of what I do has this as my motivation. Including doing a webcomic for that Mega Crossover Fanverse I keep mentioning.
- Recycled In Space: Me and Houdini write in a Mega Crossover Fanversenote . The way we've come by now is basically "Justice League Unlimited with EVERYONE!". Well, except with very little involvment from the actual Justice League Unlimited... and we're missing a bucketload of characters that we either never heard of or don't know much about... and the vast amount of heroes present don't even gather into one place often, let alone on a humongous space station in space... Actually, it's not very much like Justice League Unlimited at all. Forget Justice League Unlimited.
- Since I'm making multiple webcomics set in that universe, I might as well lay out what some of the styles are going to be for the ones that are going to be extremely obvious (and some not-so-obvious). By the way, we're likely calling this comic "Multiverse Crusade"note .
- Multiverse Crusade's Doctor Who is precisely Doctor Who exploring THE ENTIRE MULTIVERSE!note
- Multiverse Crusade's Shugo The Guardian is, basically, Sonic Sat AM with PONIES! (and an alien visitor). Until after the initial character arcs are done, in which case, there's a Genre Shift into whatever kind of story I feel like telling.
- Multiverse Crusade's Ace Attorney is Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Ace Attorney across the WHOLE MULTIVERSE!note
- Multiverse Crusade, the main comic from which the others (mentioned and un-mentioned) take their continuity from, will likely be an aversion. It might read like the Archie Sonic comics or a superhero comic book, depending on the issue, but I like to think it's more or less an original concept, formula-wise.
- Since I'm making multiple webcomics set in that universe, I might as well lay out what some of the styles are going to be for the ones that are going to be extremely obvious (and some not-so-obvious). By the way, we're likely calling this comic "Multiverse Crusade"note .
- Abusing the Kardashev Scale for Fun and Profit: Obviously I'm not doing that in Real Life. But I like to play with this in my stories. For better or worse. I mean, hey, it's fun!
- Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny: I really want to see what happens if the Time Lords face off against the Forerunners. Could be a Curb-Stomp Battle in either direction, but the former is a Solid Type IV on the Kardashev scale, while the latter is a Type III at best, Type II at worst. Still, would be pretty cool to see in my opinion.
- Blue and Orange Morality: Everything is relative. Take a hard look at the rest of this page, or even better, spend an hour talking about morality with me, and decide for yourself if I properly qualify.
- Apologizes a Lot: I'm starting to notice that I say "I'm sorry" or variations thereof, a lot...
- Friendly Rivalry: With my brother Church, and to an extent, Houdini, when it comes to multiplayer games that we can play against eachother in, especially fighting games like Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or Street Fighter IV. Houdini's Frank West is terror incarnate, and Church is no slouch either, with his varied teams.
- Church and I in MechWarrior sort of have this going between just the two of us, given the fact that Houdini doesn't even play MechWarrior means we don't even know how good he might be if he suddenly started playing with us for one reason or another.
- Mook Horror Show: From an average UMvC3 player's perspective,note I'm just some guy who plays as Phoenix Wright with almost any two other characters, and I kinda suck. So I kinda freak out when the other player rips my team(s) to shreds. Actually, I sort of freak out when playing against Houdini in that game, too. His Frank West combos really are scary.
- Enforced Method Acting: During certain plotlines in the writing of our fanverse, I sometimes hide important information from Houdini. Sometimes to make sure the reactions his characters make are more natural, other times because I feel like it at the time, and others still to make sure a potential punchline doesn't lose it's impact from his perspective. Any holes will get filled in after they've served their purpose because I explain what was going on to him (Not always, because sometimes I forget). Some of those holes won't even be made to begin with (from the readers' perspective) once the webcomic rolls around.note
- Large Ham: I'm sometimes a bit of one when I'm winning a game.
- Cerebus Syndrome/Darker and Edgier: As with Intercontinuity Crossovers, I'm a sucker for these tropes. When done well, at the very least, but in general, I love fanfic stories done in this manner. I don't always like it, because sometimes, it's actually done very badly, which leads to Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy. Of course, if that is an Intended Audience Reaction, then, well, that's the whole point.
- The Spock/The McCoy: There are some days where I hang out with some weirdnote people, who are so strange to me that I go into "logic mode" to compensate for their weirdness. On the other side of the coin, with those same people, I have to outright abstain from certain topics because they make me feel uneasy, or worse, angry, sometimes at the mere mention of said topic.note
- Revision/Rewrite: In Multiverse Crusade, there are some fanfics, fanfic concepts, canon, and canon concepts that get these treatments in our stories. Some (but not allnote ) examples are:
- Sonic.exe (Rewritten, with the original Sonic.EXE eventually appearing, thus also a Revision)
- Cupcakes (Rewritten sometimes, revisioned others)
- Rainbow Factory (The concept was a revision; the story itself is a rewrite)
- Turnabout Storm (Revisioned; this was actually one of the catalysts for a rewrite in Friendship is Magic events; my writing in the Pony universe merely extrapolates on what Turnabout Storm would have changed if it had actually happened. Since the Doctor was at the proceedings if you watch the episodes closely, I'm going to be making him a Hero of Another Story during the time Storm took place)
- Red vs. Blue (Rewritten for the comic's events, courtesy of Houdini Jr. Revisioned in the 26th Century, when Halo is supposed to happen, because in this comic, sometimes History Repeats.)
- Doctor Who (Because the show basically runs on Broad Strokes, I have to rewrite and revision all over the place to make everything internally consistent and therefore avoid the Timey-Wimey Ball when conceivably possible. Time Turner being Twelvenote in this 'verse essentially changes the same incarnation's aesthetic appearance in "The Day of the Doctor". Since we don't yet know what kind of Doctor Peter Capaldi will be, my portrayal of the Twelfth Doctor will either be very different from Moffat's, or very similar. Also, because the main comic's standard progression does not have regulars traveling through time very often and the timeline's present does not change from anyone's meddling in the past, any and all acts committed by time travelers are a case of Self-Fulfilling Prophecynote )
Deadpool: Oh, come on! Everyone knows the main character has Contractual Immortality or the main villain has Joker Immunity! Would you really kill off a centrally-important character like that?Me: Yeah.
- The concept of "fixed points in time" from this show is also rewrittennote , because I'm almost certain that different timelines can mean that not all so-called "fixed points" are as fixed as they seem by the show's definition. Only events within a specific timeline can be "fixed" - within that timeline only. Between different timelines, everything is, or can be, in flux.
- The Doctor really will die on Trenzalore, as implied by "The Name of the Doctor" - but it won't be Eleven, as Moffat appears to be doing. I tend to enforce All Deaths Are Finalnote , so my style is incompatible with Moffat's decision.
- Story of the Blanks (Revisioned and extrapolated on)
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies (One single plot point rewritten: Bobby Fulbright is alive and well. He was still impersonated by Phantom throughout the events that took place in the game, though.)
- The Conversion Bureau (Have not touched this... yet. I've never read it, but based on information shown on This Very Wiki, I'm pretty sure I want to do something about it, Flame Bait be damned. I'll probably make visiting a timeline like this the plot of a Doctor Who story or something. As such, any accuracy that does not come from right here in TV Tropes will be purely coincidental, meaning it could be a rewrite or a revision. It helps that these sorts of stories depend very greatly on who's writing them)
- Fallout: Equestria (Untouched thus far. Probably never going to touch this when co-writing with Houdini, but in my own time, it, too, shall get a visit from the Doctor.)
- The Slender Man Mythos (Broad Strokes, given how inconsistent he already is. I'm going to pit this guy against the Doctornote , and the Doctor's gonna win.)
- Super Filly Adventure (Mostly left as-is; the Super Filly ending will be canon in the primary timeline. The Muffin Ending has its own set of timelines where it happened, as should be obvious. The Blank Flank Ending, while getting a similar deal to that of the Muffin Ending, will also have one unique element acknowledged in the primary timeline. The Bloody Hooves existing alongside the Nightmares and Bone Fiends might be interesting, though they will never be in the same place - the latter is only in Sunny Town and the path leading to it, after all. And then there's the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse timelines that may wind up being visitednote . Co-writer Houdini might find it at least somewhat interesting; I know he loves Dead Rising...)
- Kubrick Stare: Me and Church are both capable of this; Church does his unconsciously while concentrating, and I use mine as a Death Glare.
- Keet: Well, I'm pretty sure I'm not short in relation to most people around me but at least, fairly recently anyway, when I'm not in a bad mood, being The Spock to anyone, keeping to myself, or focusing on a game of Chess, I can be pretty energetic.
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: I'm very single-minded when doing things... but for me, even some of the smaller distractions have the potential to break that concentration all to pieces. I don't like it.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Supreme pizza. Before that, it was cheese pizza.
- Celebrity Paradox: Multiverse Crusade sort of gives this trope the finger, in that most of the fiction written about the characters and settings remain completely intact, and actors of live-action roles like the Doctornote all exist as themselves in the universe. This is to be expected, by the very nature of the premise used in the writing. The only thing in the webcomic canon that doesn't exist (outside the in-universe depiction of our universe) is the webcomic itself, but the Self Inserts of Houdini and myself still remember having written it. I don't know what Houdini's plans are, but Shugo the Guardiannote will eventually forget his past self completely and become his own individual wholesale; he will still retain memory of a life and his friends from before showing up in Equestria, but he won't remember being me specifically, or having helped write a comic.
- Badass Driver: In Halo, I'm often the one driving while Church is gunning in the Warthog. This works very well for us, because while I'm usually playing it safe as he's shooting, there are some good moments where Car Fu can be a good call, and I can do it very well.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Discussed oncenote , between myself and Houdini. We seem to shift back and forth between us, and it's a similar situation between myself and Church. In general (with Church, at least), I'm the Blue to the other two's Reds, unless it's YouTube or some game where we are fighting eachother (e.g. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3), where I'm the Large Ham Red to Church's Blue, and it still manages to go back and forth between me and Houdini. In Multiverse Crusade, Shugo (Me) is a solid Blue to the Red that is Mason Maragi (Houdini). Shugo happens to also be the Red to Twilight Sparkle's Blue.
- Badass Longcoat: Purchased from Amazon, and received on December 18th, 2013.
- The Teetotaler
- Camera Fiend: My mom. Not quite to the point that the trope describes, but she nevertheless feels the need to take pictures everywhere we go. Ugh...
- Fascinating Eyebrow: I do this regularly. Contexts vary between curiosity, personal incredulity, spotting faulty logic, mild amusement, and a few other things. You can usually tell what the context is by the look on the rest of my face. Unless I'm otherwise poker-faced. My mom prefers to call it the "Spock Eyebrow". How fitting for someone who regularly becomes The Spock of a given situation.
- Double Standard: I despise these. That's all.
- Combat Pragmatist: I have this sort of attitude when playing virtually any video game, and even in real life if I must. As such, I have reason to believe I get on other players' nerves on Xbox LIVE.
- Good Is Not Nice: I'm polite to people if they're polite to me. I'm told I'm sweet, passionate, and a whole lot of other things, and I guess it's true. But don't ever confuse that for "nice"; if you're a jerkass, I'm very likely to respond in kind.
- Good Is Not Soft: If I'm convinced that a certain action, attitude, and/or mindset will have unfavorable consequences for people, either in the long run or short term, there's a chance I might skip the mutual politeness step.
- Sherlock Scan: I wish I could do this. But I often pretend to do so in my head.
- The Southpaw
- Indy Ploy: Most of the time, my online gaming (or my gaming in general, really, unless noted) turns out this way, even on real-time strategy games like Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3. It's because I'm terrible at planning ahead when it comes to video games.
- Suicidal Overconfidence: This is what led to my first ever Hardcore Mode death. A gang of skeletons (one wearing a full suit of gold armor, somehow) was outside my house, and I was on my way home. I've faced improbable odds in the past and came out alive, so I thought "This'll be a piece of cake," until a zombie carrying a sword (either stone or iron, it was too dark and hectic to tell) literally stabbed me in the back. I survived, but I decided to retreat toward the birch trees instead of into my iron-door'd house, an action that actually cost me my opportunity to retreat into the house. At that point, death was certain. The zombie with the sword was the one who killed me.
- Nerves of Steel: My brother, Church. He can sit through a video of Five Nights at Freddy's and be absolutely fine. He can play Dead Space, and be absolutely fine. Horror games just don't seem to faze him. Me, I'm a bit more of a pansy...
- Self-Imposed Challenge: Defeating 2 level 9 AI in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS by myself. It took me a long while, though. I might put a trained amiibo through three of them. Y'know, once I actually get one.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: My general Weapon of Choice in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is a good old sword and shield. It's also Shugo the Guardian's Weapon of Choice in Multiverse Crusade (except the sword in question is a Chaos Energy Laser Blade). I also generally prefer swords in real life.
Multiverse CrusadeHere's my comic plans for this project, specifically the parts I'm writing. This includes those co-written by Houdini. Houdini has the stories he's written/writing on his troper page. I have purchased an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, and will actually be developing the comic itself after I get used to using the drawing tablet I got for Christmas, 2014. The comics being releasednote might take even longer, as there's a lot of story to cover. Currently under construction.
