Is Kid Icarus doable without the stand?

I'm using XL and the thought of using only my left to hold the 3DS and still using the circle pad and L sounds really uncomfortable.

You will never need the stand. I can see how it might help, but it's not a big difference.

Opinions on the controls are like flipping a coin, a lot of people love them and plenty hate them.

Yes it's possible to play without the stand. For me being right handed I hold the 3DS in my left hand and use my right palm to support that side while still being able to use the stylus.

Very. Personally, I never experienced any discomfort from playing KI:U until I tried it on the stand.

you should use your non-thumb fingers of the hand you are not holding the stylus to support the 3ds

I've never touched the stand beyond unwrapping when I got the game. I honestly can't understand how it would help at all.
The game plays perfectly fine(for me) without it.

My stand is in my bathroom in front of my toilet seat. So that I can put my phone on the stand and watch youtube while doing my business

I used it for the first couple of chapters to get used to the controls, but I've been playing it for about 150 hours since then without it and I've never really had any discomfort. That's on an original 3DS though, not an XL.
