Ask @pidgezero_one:

was there a reason ssb64 was not allowed to use the custom stages in 19XX? why were they even allowed to use 19XX? did nintendo say no last minute?

I wasn't a TO, but it would have made no sense to introduce stages in top 8 that were not available the rest of the tournament. There is absolutely no way we could have offered 19XX-only counterpicks to all 239 entrants on only a handful of everdrives.

Hello. Your tumblr said you work in health care. How did you end up there? Was it mostly the bioengineering minor or was there something else that helped you get a job in that field?

the bioengineering minor helped for sure, because i got to take classes and thesis projects that let me work with health care clients. My undergrad internship placement was in health care as well. Once you have your foot in the door in the industry it opens up the whole world to you.

if i ask myself in my head if im a girl, i say yes. but i do nothing to become a girl. im afraid my transition would be ugly, and im afraid of losing the people around me if i decide to transition.

As a cis person I am not really in a place to give you advice on this issue -- but I will say that you should transition only when you feel safe and comfortable doing so.
Do you have anyone close to you who you expect will be supportive of you? Maybe friends who you might have seen saying or agreeing with trans-positive things. I think that might be a good place to start with building a safety net before you decide to come out, if you decide to come out.
You're a girl and you're beautiful whether you transition or not.
Trans friends on Twitter, please weigh in on this, I don't want to give over-privileged advice that may be off-base.

What is your favorite game of all time?

Latte7
Super Mario RPG on the SNES. It managed to create a funny, enjoyable experience for a gateway RPG that did not need a very long or complex narrative to create characters that were important for the player to relate to. The game follows the story of Mallow growing up, Geno as a breakout character, and Peach as a first-time role model for young girls, for instance. Mario subverts the trope of silent protagonist, the game frequently subverts the trope of rescuing the damsel in distress, etc. In some ways I would say that the game did a lot of things that were ahead of its time.
Plus, there is so much hidden stuff in the game that even now almost 20 years later I discover something new each time I play. Choosing what I will challenge myself with is like playing a completely different game but with a familiar environment that feels like home (see: underleveled runs).
