Hello. I'm Fawfulthegreat64. I do mostly Mario series art. I'm a trans female, questioning nonbinary. I use she/her pronouns but I also accept they/them.
Here's a list of my fandoms and opinions on them.
Mario is by far my most dedicated fandom. My favorite game is Super Paper Mario, and my favorite characters are Fawful, Dimentio, Count Bleck and many others from the RPGs. Of the main series cast my favorites are the Mario Bros., Bowser, Peach, Wario and Waluigi (if he counts). My least favorite character is Toad (both the 'character' and generic members of the species, which the character is basically). I hold a great disdain for Paper Mario: Sticker Star and all its influence on future Mario RPGs. Story and original characters should not be removed from these games, they are part of what defines them as my favorite series ever. This shows even in Color Splash with Huey being by far the best thing about that game, proving they can still create good characters for the series but refuse to make more than one per game. The Origami King turned out to be the first game I like overall since SPM, but it was still held back by unnecessary and destructive restrictions. "No longer possible" this and "Since Paper Mario: Sticker Star" that. It was a good game DESPITE all these backwards decisions, not because of them. Thus it still doesn't come close to being a fourth classic entry, which is my true desire.
I'm also a VERY strong supporter of Mario RPG characters in the general Mario series. I'm tired of them always being one-offs/limited to a few games and not even referenced in other games. They barely get merchandising, are never considered as selectable Mario Kart players, etc. So that's another thing you should know about me, I will NEVER approve the segregation the Mario series is currently employing between the main Mario cast and the characters introduced in the RPGs.
I guess I'll list Mario-related pairings I support. Some are a bit out there. Blumiere x Timpani (canon), Peach x Mimi, O'Chunks x Nastasia, Mario x Vivian, Luigi x Peasley, Pauline X Peach, and Dimentio X the cold dead waters of the River Twygz
However none compare to the hottest ship of all:
The Brave Little Toaster: Rediscovered this in 2015 after forgetting its existence since childhood [or rather it being one of many things my parents forced me to 'grow out of']. I love this movie and yes, I also love the sequels. Everything about these movies is nostalgic to me so you'll occasionally see art from them here.
SpongeBob SquarePants: Watched so much of it as a kid, another big source of nostalgia. I don't draw content as much though since there's so much art of it already out there. Favorite episode is Band Geeks, used to be Rock Bottom but Band Geeks is on a whole other level of amazing. The first two movies are great, the third one is meh (love the Secret to the Formula song tho). The original movie will always be the best, and i MAY have a crush on Mindy
Wreck-it Ralph: Best movie I've seen this decade. I love the plot, the characters (especially King Candy/Turbo), and the expressive animation. The sequel was really disappointing.
Despicable Me: I know these movies have quite a controversial reputation because of the Minions, but I like them mostly for the other characters like Gru (you know, the actual protagonist). Minions are nothing special so I understand why their immense pandering is annoying, but I just wish they'd make more merchandise and market the other characters from these movies more.
The Lorax: I loved the original short and book as a kid, and the memes based around the 2012 movie brought me back to it. Then I saw the movie and liked it too. They're pretty different but I don't think the movie is terrible. Nostalgia still puts the original above it probably though.
*side note: Illumination is making a Mario movie and let me just say. Since I don't have the same hate boner for Illumination others do I'm not so concerned about that. I just hope potential sequels don't stay firmly in the main series since that would just be Bowser kidnapping Peach repeatedly which seems boring to keep repeating for movies. I hope instead we get some sweet RPG adaptations, particularly the ones from the 2000s please. Fawful and Dimentio on the big screen would be *chef's kiss*
"Guilty Pleasures:" I have a history of liking animated movies that have mostly bad/unfavorable reviews. Examples (other than Illumination movies and the two Brave Little Toaster sequels) are A Troll in Central Park and Tom and Jerry: The Movie. So as you would guess, I consider them underrated.
*New* The Owl House: I started watching this show last year during the mid-season 2 hiatus. Binged all the way from the beginning to season 2 episode 10. The indefinite hiatus hit me like a truck. But I love the story of this show, I am very invested in it. So you MAY see spoilers on my profile lol. And yes Lumity was the thing that put the show on my radar, i was very excited to watch an animated show where two main female characters date, we've come a long way with representation and that makes me happy.

***Due to New Deviantart's incompatibility with the stamps & buttons in my bio, they've been relocated to their own sections, however I was not able to arrange them as compactly as before, again because DeviantArt is no longer designed to allow that. So much for intuitive design...
However, any stamp that broke either due to the uploader deleting it, deactivating or making it unviewable as a guest, I've mirrored in my stash so they display properly for everyone.***
I usually sort favorites from other artists into folders. The basic Favorites folder is usually only added to when I'm favoriting things in a hurry and accidentally miss categorizing something. Otherwise, I have folders for Mario, Brave Little Toaster, SpongeBob, Wreck-it Ralph, and art featuring my mascot (Fawful in a purple tux and top hat). Anything else goes to the Misc Favorites folder. Do be warned that I occasionally favorite NSFW content (and lately have been considering drawing said content as well, so make use of mature filters if you don't like that stuff please)
