Title: Why you should read Uglies: A PowerPoint in Comic Sans
Post by: Ceres on September 08, 2017, 12:36:50 PM
Dedicated to Raven and Besly (especially Besly 9_9). You know those humorous PowerPoints that explain a fandom? I made one for Uglies.

???

The thing is that he said it reminded him of this one fan art of Mia that I've been using for years where she says "I am uncomfortable", which is pretty much the reaction Cable instills in everyone?? Plus, both Mia and Cable are the older mentor figures to the protagonist (loosely speaking) and both have brown hair, big busts, and are described as pretty???

Golly I can't believe this powerpoint reminded me that Dr. Cable exists. I remember her being my favourite when I first read the series.

Nonono why would you attack Uglies. I'll fight you

Maybe she went to sleep or is busy? Idk man, she'll see it tomorrow hopefully or I will kill her

Ayy, someone else read my slideshow. And same - she's underappreciated but I loved her character. No spoilers because the target audience of this thread hasn't read the series, but that ending with her was probably my favorite part of the whole series

Remember how I said I had a long-winded rant about how Specials (the third book) = Alien: Resurrection? I also have a long-winded rant about how the ending of Specials reminds me of an event in X-Men.
If you spoil the ending for yourself I'll kill u

@Besly and Raven The twist was one of the best parts tho. And it won't be as emotionally impactful if you read it now (and possibly won't make any sense at all)

Dang Cat now I wanna re-read Uglies because I do not remember it well
I reread it once in eighth grade (even tho I evidently remember more than I though) but now I want to reread it too :0 I'm glad my PowerPoint had that effect
