    Question for you. There's a character in a book I read who's from Madrid and his name is Bonzo. The book gives the pronunciation of his name as "Bone-So", not "Bahn-zo." And now there's a small argument in the fandom for this book because most people pronounce the name as "Bahn-zo" and not "Bone-so" and I'm just like let me ask Went because he will lead me to a better answer.

    Just saying that the Dream Land series are fun if you love cutesy animals doing hilarious things. Down side, beating the game proper is like agsgdhds.

    It sounds dirty but she likes sleeping in between my legs.

    On that note!

    She was only concerned about her mother and is currently getting pets, scritches, and is demanding that I go to bed so she can too.

    I'm not a terrible person, Went!

    Stop. You're making me want to get the game now. Which I haven't done because I'm poor and haven't finished Partners In Time/Superstar Saga. :(

    Managed to identify the song that was previously playing in my profile and put the "awake" version, I think it's even better. Just saying!

    From what you say, sounds like a forward left winger. A defender or a midfielder would rarely talk about scoring a hat-trick, corner/free kick headers are usually scored by either forwards or defenders, and the fact that he's placed on the top left zone during kick off pretty much gives it away.

    He just seems to play in a defensive-oriented team, that's all.

    And this is why, after I looked up the basic information, I decided to ask you. This is really helpful and fascinating!

    After watching the two times where he's shown to play, I can try to answer your questions the best I can.

    That time he apparently handballed- was he trying to catch the ball to attack or to clear it away? Did he receive a card for it? Which colour?
    The game he handballed wasn't any official game. It was just one he was playing for fun with a group of friends. When he tried to catch the ball, he was on the edge of the field in the middle, nearly out-of-bounds. The ball sails overhead, and he has to dive to attempt to catch it.

    What does he do primarily? Attacking or defending?
    Seems to be mostly defending. But in the only official game he's shown to play, a player on his team kicks the ball at him and he gets a goal by striking with his head just before halftime. A friend says that he can't relax and stop defending, and he responds saying that he'll just perform a hat trick. The conversation goes:
    "You're up a point, but you can't just protect your lead. They'll see that and attack."
    "No problem! I'll score a hat trick!"
    Now this might also help. When the second half is about to begin, he's standing to the left of the player in the center of the field. Does this lead me to the answer?

    Well, he can be playing as an offensive midfielder, since their job is passing the ball around, but they need to be ready to steal balls when they can and go ahead with the attack to be there in case they need to finish. There also are examples of defenders (specially wingers) who end up scoring a lot of goals as well- Barcelona have Jodi Alba and Dani Alves who love becoming forwards whenever they can.
    Finally there also are forwards who are told to defend, specially in super-defensive teams. If I have seen super-scoring diva Cristiano Ronaldo just clearing balls away a few times, then anything is possible.

    So, in order to know his position, we need to go:
    - What does he do primarily? Attacking or defending?
    - That time he apparently handballed- was he trying to catch the ball to attack or to clear it away? Did he receive a card for it? Which colour?

    In any case, if you are unsure which part he does primarily, go with the "midfielder" explanation since that's where most players who don't do anything in particular and everything at once are classed in. And no, they don't need to be the most fit in the team- just look at Andrés Iniesta and Xavi, one of the best couples in the world, both small and really weak-looking.

    :D Mario & Luigi Dream Team music! A pleasant surprise to hear when I visit your profile. (Though I was listening to Colress's battle theme from B2/W2 as I wrote this, since that's my current go-to writing song.) I can't wait for that game to come out.

    Anyhow, I have a few questions about football/soccer! It's for the story I'm currently writing, and I like getting even the smallest fact correct in this story. So let me ask a question with some explanation.

    I have a character who plays soccer a lot. In the two times that I've seen him play in canon (the show I'm basing this fic on) I've seen him do two plays:

    -he attempts to catch a pass in his hands, but I know he's not playing goalie as he was standing near the middle of the field
    -he makes a few attacks on the other team's goal
    -he slides in front of a player on the other team to stop them from making a goal

    What position would he be playing?

    To get pass the scene I need this information for, I first put him as a forward, since that fits the type of character he is (just goes on the attack). But then I remembered that he also did defense in a game, and between that and midfielders apparently needing to be the most physically fit players on the team, I made him a midfielder. So was my decision correct?

    This is ridiculous but I know you would expect nothing less from me. :D Let me know if you need any more clarification on anything.

    Thanks, Went! <3
