Title: Your opinion of Tally Youngblood.
Post by: Nina-Chan on January 11, 2010, 04:49:56 AM
Tally Youngblood.
Tally is a person with many dimensions to her, plus the constant rewiring of her brain but what do you think of her in general?
and also in extra aya says "what DOES she care about?" and that made me wonder, what?
does she truly care about David? About Zane? Shay?

In all the books, I think she is a very shallow, self-centered character. You may not agree, but throughout the books, she never acts like she cares about anyone but herself. Between Tally and Shay, I like Shay ten times better. I don't think she really cares about Zane or David or Shay because she's so shallow and can't except them the way they are.

she may be exactly what you said but shes also mysterious and unexpecting. she cares about david, zane, and shay but in a different way then you may think. for this reason i like tally.

that's true...very mysterious, unexpecting, and dare i say, devious, but i think that she's just not my favorite character. i think she's just really focused on changing people..but i dont know, you may be right.

Like I said in the favorite character thread, I think her character is realistic. People aren't perfect.

I think she's capable of learning, which is important. And I think she cares about the big picture, not just herself. She realizes stuff like that freedom is dangerous and that nature is beautiful. But her society keeps ingraining certain ideals into her head and rewiring her brain and manipulating her, and she can't really help that. It's not her fault.

I think Tally's character is very realistic... I like her, but I really like Shay better.
Shay seems to care for whatever group she's part of at the moment... (Smokies, Cutters, Crims) Tally seems loyal to the group too... but if you look closely all her actions are about her latest boyfriend. I got really upset with her when she chose Zane over the cutters, only because she kept telling herself that she still was loyal to the cutters too, when she wasn't!
Anyway, just wanted to share my opinion.

Eh I agree she was a bit selfish throughout all the books and a bit of a brat, but it kinda re,inded me of a lot of life in general, but on a more horrific scale.  Trying to be popular, not fitting in unless you are, betraying your friends, but being guilty, etc.  I liked that she was in indesicion the wole series, and it kinda concludesit with her finally being lifted of her guilt and w David

I don't think Tally is shallow, but she is self-centered. Be careful when giving a character a group of traits...

although Scott-la can of course disagree with me,

And I like Shay a lot more than Tally, but I am a lot more like Tally than Shay  :-\

And Tally, she does care about Shay and David and Zane!
She does have issues with both boys at different times, accepting them, that's for sure.
But she cares, she always has. She just isn't always thinking about them. Every time her brain was messed with, so were her priorities. And before her brain was literally messed with, she was a victim of the system (Shay and Zane were blessed with the chance of the people they knew and Shay benefited best, at least at first, because she went to the Smoke while Zane did not). When she breaks away from all systems, she cares about all three of the above very clearly.

Post by: Chloe-Wa on January 13, 2010, 04:12:19 AM
tally was a little selfish but i always liked her as a character- when she went to betray the smoke it was only because she wanted to keep a promise that she had made to peris before she even met shay so either way she would have betrayed someone and she eventually decided to stay in the smoke so she didnt actually mean to betray shay like she had planned. A lot of her choices were made for her so she wasnt always in her normal state of mind but i agree with julie-wa that it was clear that she cared about shay zane and david when she rewired herself

Post by: Tabac vie on January 13, 2010, 10:09:37 AM
I think that the reason most people like Shay better than Tally is because we all want to think that we would be Shay. It rebel the strong one who nnever fell for any of the popular worries of life. While Tally is more like us, she gets peer pressured, she wants to fit in and she is far from prefect.

That "Best Friends For Never" essay in Mind Rain says pretty much what I feel. I like Shay cuz I feel sorry for her. She's just as brilliant, clever, tricky, and good at hoverboarding as Tally... she could easily star in her own book But she's loyal to Tally, and she doesn't leave.

i think tally was just put under way too much pressure to be placed in the "norm." im thinking maybe if shay hadnt come into her life she may have been just turned into a pretty little pretty. although id have to wonder if she would get involved with Zane either way?

I think Zane was mostly interested in Tally because of her criminal ugly past. Zane was starting to figure out the bubblehead part of being a pretty, and he needed a girlfriend who could stay bubbly with him. That's probably what got him into Tally, and I think the part of Tally that wasn't a bubblehead sensed that there was something about Zane that wasn't like a normal bubblehead, and that was what drew them together. So if Tally had just turned pretty when she was supposed to, she and Zane probably wouldn't have gotten together.

I agree. Tally can't help if she got tons of operations and attempted operations  to make her someone she was not. She is kinda self-centred, but everyone is, its natural. She is a normal human being(at first)and she tries her best to do the best thing that will work out in the long run.

Post by: Allie-wa on June 05, 2010, 02:20:40 PM
I think Tally has many different personalities to her.
She can be self-centered, selfish, inconsiderate, and completely brain-missing at times.
But then again, she will stick up for what she believes in, and WHO she believes in. She wasn't afraid to go out and fight the war in Diego, or stop the Prettytime altogether.

She pretty much has two different sides to her. I think she really cared about David in the first book, but once she met Zane, I think her focus went to him. She would spend all of her time with him, and tried to do everything in her power to keep him alive. Even though she didn't succees, you could tell she was truly in pain about his death, so I think Zane is the person she cared about most. After Zane's death, It seemed like she was too afraid to get close to anyone else.

I like how Tally was in uglies, but then she kept changing so much! I wish she could've taken the pills anyway, and just went completely back to normal, and live a normal life, but she keeps fighting with Shay, and in uglies, they were best friends, and played tricks, and had fun. I think she was really pretty too. (from the book cover) after the first book, she's always fighting, or being serious, and she never gets to be herself. I wish she could undo every operation that was done to her, and just go back to diego with Shay. I don't like how it ends. its a GREAT GREAT GREAT series, but it doesn't have a satysfying ending.  :-\

Post by: Emma-la on June 15, 2010, 07:13:41 AM
The ending was realistic. Nomatter how much you hate it, I always appreciate realistic books better. It's like, jeez, "and they all lived happily ever after and no one wanted revenge and all evil was gone from the world forever la di dah" how much more unrealistic can it get. in scott's books, its like, "so ya, some people died and evil will always still be there and the world aint perfect but you can do your best to do good in this imperfect world anyways". it just makes a ton more sense to me and even if i hated how zane died, i respeced the book more than if zane was miraculously cured.

I really don't care if Zane died or not, but after all Tally went through, dr. Cable could've just left her alone, and got someone else to do it, but yeah, I like realistic endings. but a satysfying realistic ending. like in fablehaven (idk if anyone read that) no one died in the end, and I think a biggish charecter could've died, but I loove the series.

Tally is shallow, and mysterious, and definitely layered. I never found Tally wanting to change others, In fact it's the opposite she is always being changed by others. Although I find she is a boyfriend stealer, and she was pretty clueless in all the books. I love her for being so flawed but I don't like her, she's like a sibling.

I like Shay's more dominate behavior and the willingness to take risks and to lead others.  I like Shay more than Tally.

*says as icyily and venom filled as possible* Evin, think before you say. Why do I have to constantly remind you? Oh, yeah, cuz it can't go through your mind because it seems you barely have one. There is a difference between "hoot" and "woot", so unless you need glasses, which I know isn't the case, you should stop acting stupid. Nobody appreciates it. Everyone can be a bubblehead sometimes, but not all the time like you.

@Everyone else: I know this seems harsh, but you have to understand that I'm not always like this (obviously) and Evin and me get into fights often. I apologize to everyone who has to read this, but Evin never reads his pms, so I don't really have a choice.

Evin is the new HPF! You guys could be the new HPF and James-Chan. I should start a "Who Starts It 2" thread with you two as the options, or maybe I'll say both but just have Evin as the only option. ;D

I haven't been back on here in forever...
Honestly, after looking back at the books and the comments o this topic, i believe we were all wrong.
Tally is just another person who wants to be someone important but can't achieve that. So she starts being mishcivious and starts not caring about anything. But in the very beginning of uglies you could see that she was her. When she met Shay, she changed completely. Same with when she met david, dr. Cable, Zane, and everyone else. She tried to please each one of them. Hiding her true self.
In all of us I believ we try to e someone were not just to please someone else. This is not me' by far though. I have never been like that. I am proud to be who I am.

Now that you mention it, I see that. It's a lot like how my sister is. She puts on a different personality for everyone but for some people she just can't find the personality to fool them.

I think Tally is in a constant battle with her brain. She reminds me of an autism self advocate, the way she does not want to be normal. Despite what anyone does to her, there is always a crim streak shining through. I think Shay misinterprets Tally's words a lot, which leads to them fighting. I think Tally should be with Andrew Simpson Smith, because he loves every aspect of Tally, naive pretty or intimidating Cutter. Plus, they would be perfect in the wild together.

I really don't know why everyone hates Tally. She's my favourite character. (prepared to get shot)

In uglies, she's just a scared girl who really wants the surge but can't get it because her friend escaped into the wild so, she follows her friend and accidentally betray and steal her friend's boyfriend. From my point of view, I don't think she's selfish. Shit just happens to her. Load of shit. And it happens multiple times.

So yea.

^^I'm with you on that one! Couldn't have said it better. I mean, really truly, how many of us would actually stay with the Smoke? I think that most of us wouldn't even hesitate to activate the tracker.

Agreed. And Tally actually wanted to stay in Smoke but ended up activating the tracker. Well, it isn't her fault. She had good intentions but it just came out wrongly.

And yea, I wouldn't want to stay in smoke. (I don't even like camping)

Tally seems annoying and rude. She steals David away from Shay. She gives away Smoke. She didn't seem sad when Zane died.

To defend her:

She didn't mean to take David from Shay.

She clearly didn't mean to give away the Smoke, the only reason that that happened was because she was making a point of not giving it away.

"The last time I kissed someone, I ended up watching him die."
