Title: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: SteampunkButterfly on April 06, 2012, 01:31:13 PM
Could I play Tally?

Problem is, I'm 13 going-on-to 14 in September...

Oh, casting's over. Oh well.

Post by: SteampunkButterfly on April 07, 2012, 06:01:58 AM
Okay, just read on that it's fake. So yay! And could I play Tally? Anyone?

I think you look a little young but with the right lighting and some blue eye contacts I think you could! :D
((I always pictured Tally with blue eyes))
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was every a movie...
Post by: SteampunkButterfly on April 08, 2012, 12:23:30 AM
Probably, by the time Uglies comes out, I'll be Tally's age....
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was every a movie...
Post by: Luna Lovegood on April 08, 2012, 03:18:38 AM
I actually think you look really good, not too young for youngblood
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Abby-la on April 10, 2012, 07:40:04 AM
maybe. I'd call you more one of the smokies.  :P

I ALWAYS PICTURED TALLY LOOKING LIKE YOU

I ALWAYS PICTURED TALLY LOOKING LIKE YOU

Why thank you.

You look alot like i pictured tally, but for some reason i've always imagined her parting her hair to the side... I really don't know why
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 01, 2012, 01:51:40 PM
I think you mean WHEN Uglies is a movie.
And honestly, you'd make a good Tally. The person who plays her should be a fan of the series. We know what happens when you get a person who has no clue about the character to act them...Golden Compass fail, anyone?
Also; when they do, I hope they have a little prolouge that shows the Oil Bug. I wanna be a Rusty running around screaming. Sounds like dead fun.

That would beSOOO much fun
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 02, 2012, 12:49:04 AM
I've done scenes like it before for indipendand films. It really is fun.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 04, 2012, 06:52:28 AM
I feel like Tally's appearance is so ambiguous, the casting will end up more based on the actress' experience and acting skills than anything. I hope she's a nobody, though.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 04, 2012, 06:58:28 AM
They'd better make her a nobody. Hell, casting a well-known actress as her would pretty much defeat the WHOLE POINT of the series, wouldn't it?
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 04, 2012, 07:01:52 AM
Yes, unless she's more famous for her skills than her family or her beauty.
It would also accentuate the fact that Tally is a nobody at the start of the trilogy, so she should be a new face, but by Extras she is the most famous person in the world, and if the film is a success the actress will start showing up a little more.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 04, 2012, 07:03:45 AM
That would be good, yes.
I like that...she will, quite litterally, become Tally in real life. If it does well. We all saw what happened to the Golden Compass...
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Shax on May 04, 2012, 07:05:23 AM
I picture tally as the girl on the cover.. but if anything i want emily browning to play tally

Didn't see it, I was told it wasn't good so I didn't even watch it :P
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 04, 2012, 07:08:24 AM
I had the displeasure of watching it while I was still reading the book. So I was doubally confused. Then I realized the series ended with Will and Lyra getting Darwinist in the grass, and I just let it slide.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 04, 2012, 07:11:12 AM
Should I read it? I've heard mixed reviews.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 04, 2012, 07:14:50 AM
His Dark Materials? Yes. It's not quite steampunk, but it's still a good read. Just ignore whatever religous reffs they make and focus instead on the hotness of the main characters (for you, as a girl, the broody knife-weilding skills of William Perry), and you'll do fine.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 04, 2012, 07:21:48 AM
Will keep in mind :D
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 04, 2012, 10:51:40 AM
It worked for me and my die-hard athiest freind, it should work for you.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 04, 2012, 10:53:54 AM
Nice. Although I find religious references interesting.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...

They you'll probably like it even more.

Sweet :D I'll add it to my list to get for my birthday.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 04, 2012, 11:11:09 AM
It's three books, so it should be a good long read.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 04, 2012, 11:13:58 AM
Nice :D
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...

Yeah. Yays for long series.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 04, 2012, 12:00:08 PM
Trilogies are the best.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 04, 2012, 02:26:12 PM
Pretty much. Quartets tend to drag out, or you have to split them into two different archs contained within the first and last two books. Like Mortal Engines did.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 04, 2012, 08:46:31 PM
I feel like in quartets, there's usually that one book that just doesn't measure up or you just don't want to read.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 12:44:21 AM
True. And one more book means at least another days worth of reading and infromation on the universe. Which is why I like Mortal Engines; it's not one, but TWO quartets. So eight books over all.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 04:32:19 AM
Sweet :D MI has more books coming, which concerns me because in order for them to keep the story up for that long, at least one couple will have to break up.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 04:39:29 AM
That certainly seems to be a good fall-back for stories. It happened in Mortal Engines too. Except in this case it's because the girl sold AN ENTIRE MOVING CITY to someone for the boy. Sixteen years before, none the less. Oh, and they'd been married for that long too. But at least it wasn't something lame.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 04:44:05 AM
Haha xD MI is sort of the entire sum of a teenage girl's mind. I use it a lot to convince girls who don't read to pick something up, and they usually enjoy it.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 04:46:00 AM
Well that alone makes it a good bock.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 04:48:52 AM
It does, especially if the experience gets them to read more.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 05:33:58 AM
Which is a good thing, since reading seems to be dying in our world.  :'( I carry books around a lot, and everyone says "oh wow, you read so much! I wish I could read like you do!"
Not that hard, people. Seriously.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 05:44:59 AM
Carrying it around helps a lot, just having a book on the off chance that there will be a time to read opens up hours every week.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 06:18:34 AM
It's one of the reasons I wear military jackets and pants all the time; most of them have pockets that are just the right size to slide a paperback into.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 06:46:33 AM
That's my grudge against girls' clothing. No pockets. I asked a guy to hold my piccolo case once and he put the whole thing in his pocket.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 06:52:46 AM
Awesome. A suggestion for you; go to whatever thrift store is near you (don't know if you have Goodwill or Value Village on the east coast) and look for used military gear. There should be some. Wear that. Not only will you have pockets, you'll look like a complete BAMF.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 06:58:27 AM
That sounds like a pretty good idea, actually xD
I stole my mom's leather bomber jacket, but she won't let me wear it to school because it's apparently worth a lot. Also, it's too big for me so the sleeves are pretty restrictive xD
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 09:11:08 AM
Bomber jackets are valuable. If not just because they're amazing quality.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 09:19:32 AM
True :D Someone tried to steal ours off the back of my mom's chair in a restaurant once. While she was sitting in it.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 09:30:19 AM
I'm going to guess that didn't go over very well.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 09:44:59 AM
Yeah, her brother was pretty mad xD And everyone in the restaurant was watching, so the guy kind of had no way to write it off. Pretty stupid, I think.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 09:46:27 AM
Ouch...sucks to be him.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 09:47:21 AM
Yeah... "Remember kids, stealing is bad. You could end up like this guy."
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 09:48:22 AM
Don't I know it. I punched a dude who tried to steal some of my food back in high school. Stupid fat kid thought he could run off with my chicken drumstick-like things.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 09:52:23 AM
That sounds like it would have been a really funny thing to witness from across the cafeteria, lol xD
Some guys in my band stole my goldfish once. I got mad at them not for eating my goldfish, but for lying about not eating my goldfish. I mean, who steals goldfish? I went on so long about how it's "the principle of the thing" and "I would like to think I could trust my own bandmates" and "I would have given them to you it you'd asked" that they paid me off for them just to make me shut up.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 09:58:15 AM
It got some laughs from the people watching. The kid wasn't very popular, and I'm going to guess you know how teens can be when it comes to harsh laughter.
Goldfish. Yeah, kind or a stupid thing to steal. But at least you got money.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 10:07:12 AM
Yup. And the guys were jerks, but still kind of my close friends, so any chance to preach at them for a while is pretty fun.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 10:07:48 AM
Preaching at freinds never gets old. Ever.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 10:11:17 AM
Especially when they deserve it :D
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 10:21:27 AM
Defenantly. Then its not just fun, it feels good.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 10:33:59 AM
It does :D And you can pretend you're teaching them something.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 10:41:50 AM
I'll have to try that next time...usually I just go full-on drill sergeant.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 10:45:06 AM
I go for the psychological approach. "The fact that you felt you needed to steal from me shows that you don't respect me enough to ask me for something you know I'll say yes to, which makes me feel..." And so on, for an hour.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 10:46:12 AM
Only an hour? Huh, I expected much more from you. I R Disappoint.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 10:48:31 AM
Well, that was the first day. It took more than one lecture, of course. It ended with one of them holding my mouth shut and shoving cash into my pocket to get me to shut up.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 10:49:49 AM
Oh...and over an hour of it would probably leave your throat dry. Hydration is important.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 10:51:39 AM
A fact that my drumline coach won't let me forget! I think he's said "water" more times this season than "snares," "drums," "mallets," "sticks" and "drill" combined.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 10:53:24 AM
Which is impressive to say the least. I'd think you'd say those pretty often in drum class.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 10:56:41 AM
Yup. "Shoe polish" used to come up a lot, as did "armageddon" when we were discussing potential snowstorm plans. Someone made a dictionary last year of all the things he says that only we get.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:00:20 AM
Funny you should mention snowstorm plans and armageddon in teh same sentence. Seattle was just hit by what people are calling "Snowmageddon 2012". Which, if it were in Cape Cod, wouldn't even slow you guys down I assume.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:02:51 AM
Most of our snowstorms are actually pretty mild, the worst we've gotten in the past seven years or so was three or four feet. We have the ocean to kind of knock it out.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:10:01 AM
Seattle got less than a foot and it brought us to a standstill. 4 feet would stop us deader than dead.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:11:05 AM
We were pretty dead, too. But Cape Cod's not a city, it's suburban, so there's a little more room for snow plows.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:12:46 AM
Yeah. And at least you have them. Seattle has 4, I think.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:14:33 AM
Oh wow. Most of our landscaping companies own plows that attach to their normal trucks, so when there's a storm the town hires them out to plow. I love snowstorms. They're the best.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:15:04 AM
No disagreement here. No school for A WHOLE WEEK. It was awesome.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:18:17 AM
It always comes at the right time :D And power outages are fun. Except no internet, that's not fun. But then you get to find new ways to entertain yourself, which is cool. I usually end up sleeping over at my neighbor's house so that I don't have to sleep in a basement alone and my neighbor doesn't have to sleep in a basement alone.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:21:03 AM
Getting cut off from the web sucks.
That sounds really cool. We usually don't get power outages here though. My part of Seattle is usually warmer than the rest, so we don't get more than a couple inches of snow at most.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:22:30 AM
We get random power outages a lot, often because of car accidents knocking out power lines. It's really annoying if you sleep through it and wake up and your clock is wrong.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:24:47 AM
Ah, the "Home Alone" problem. At least you don't accidentally leave someone behind. Though honestly, Kevin is such a whiny little noob I'd like to shove him out a window.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:27:51 AM
Lol xD I think I'm more afraid to be in my own basement in the dark than someone else's.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:32:11 AM
Basements are creepy. I want to take a picture of me in mine holding up this big old road flare or something. That would look so cool.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:33:21 AM
'Twould :D The one good thing is that the lighting doesn't really change throughout the day, which is good for shooting videos and sleeping.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:35:00 AM
That does sound rather useful. Few things annoy me more than light interrupting my sleep. You could probably throw epic parties down there.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:37:07 AM
I've had a couple decent ones, but I don't host parties often. My parents are obsessively anti-noise. A girl on the other side of the cranberry bog at the end of my street has some pretty cool ones, I usually go to hers.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:38:51 AM
Oh, a cranberry bog! I'd love to slog through that.
Parties really aren't all they're cracked up to be. Well, the huge ones anyway. 5 or so people in someones basement just chatting about nerdy things and watching bad movies? Thats what I'm talking bout
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:41:17 AM
Those parties are the best. Same with the bonfire and riding around in a golf cart kind. Also the throwing snow at each other in tank tops at 2AM on New Year's kind.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:46:48 AM
Those rule. Don't forget the 10 at night squirt gun fights in the summer. Crazy mindless fun.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 11:49:36 AM
Absolutely. And they're much easier to feel comfortable in if you don't know anybody, which happens to me a lot. I have a lot of friends who don't know any of my other friends.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 11:53:26 AM
Same on my end. Hell, the last party I went to I only know one person, and I'd only met her face-to-face once before (at the Westefeld meeting, actually). And clart, was it fun. Best night in a long while.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 12:01:26 PM
The last party I went to, I didn't know anybody but the girl hosting it and a few people who spent most of the night dancing, so I started talking to some guy from her school (the conversation was almost entirely one-sided). The next day my friend told me that he told her he was going to ask me out and I freaked out because I didn't want to have to say no but I didn't know him at all. I felt so bad, but his friend convinced him not to do it anyway.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 12:15:18 PM
Woah. Most complex relationship I've ever heard from ANYONE. Guess that shows how lame and autisticy my life is. Ironic you should mention that...the girl who I met at the Westerfeld meeting eventually became my girlfriend. Valentines Day, to be exact. We went to downtown Seattle to laugh at couples, and ended up as one.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 12:20:49 PM
That's really ironic and adorable :D
It's really not that complex, but I felt so bad :O I never thought talking for two hours to someone about a band they're not even in was that alluring.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 12:27:21 PM
And nerdy. My biggest date with her was the Emerald City Comic Convention.
Guess some people are desperate. Or, possibly, he was party blinded. It's a confirmed fact; everthing you think or do at a party only makes sense when you're in a party. Think back on it, and you go "what the hell..."
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 12:29:33 PM
Aw! Nerd love :D
Yeah, that's definitely true. he was only a freshman, too :( I think he was the youngest person at the party.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 05, 2012, 12:39:32 PM
Its what I call it. And she calls it that too. So it must be. And it's wonderful.
Oh, well what do we know? We've got a real-life case of pretty fever.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 12:48:26 PM
Oh my god, that's probably what it was, too xD There's a good chance that was his first high school party.

Post by: Khoela on May 05, 2012, 12:50:42 PM
I'm going to sleep now, by the way. It's almost eleven here and I'm getting tired :P I'll be back on tomorrow morning though.

Good talking with you.

She's a popular choice.

I can see why.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 07, 2012, 03:07:52 AM
I'd go for her. She's pretty, but unconventionally, which is good.

Exactly what we need for Tally.
Though, on the subject of her; anyone else think that its a little funny that Tally think's she looks hidius but (at least according to Shay's Story) were she to go into a standard high school there'd be boys throwing themselves at her feet begging to suck her toes? (Myself included, actually. HOTTIE!)

Yup! See what the society did to her?
BTW: shared my character's profile with you on Gdocs, need help with her name.

My thoughts exactly.
I'll go check it out right now.

Sweet!

Looked it over, having a little hard time finding anything really to edit. It's a solid character, no OC or Mary Sue-ness that I can see.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 07, 2012, 11:53:36 AM
What does OC stand for? I always thought it was original character. And thanks!

It is. And I'm talking the bad one. Like, just a step down from Mary Sue.

Ohhh. Okay :D Should her name by Skylar or Sasha?
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 07, 2012, 12:00:50 PM
Skylar. I don't know of any fictional girl named Skylar. And, really, it fits. Sasha's a standard Russian name. Cool, but I don't see of being Russian decent. Skylar, is like Zane; it has a sort of sci-fi feel to it, but it's still an actual name.
And it sounds like "Sylar", which I will simply NOT pass up.

Haha! It's also popular in Idaho, I'm told :D

Post by: Straif on May 07, 2012, 12:30:00 PM
Perfect. That's all the reason we need. And, maybe this is just stupid, but I have this vision of my character doing this sort of romantic whisper of it...and "Skylar" already sounds like a whisper as is. "Sasha" would be good too, but it just sounds to smooth to my mind. Skylar has that "Y" in it, so it's smooth but gets broken up. Also, were he to sob it, he could hitch there. Yes, I'm already thinking of pairings. I'm sorry, my head is stuck in romance mode from my date.

It's cool :D Plus, I kind of feel like if a fanfic doesn't have romance, no one will read it xD
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 07, 2012, 12:47:29 PM
Especially if it's an Uglies fanfic. Or any young adult universe, for that matter. Action, romance, and maybe a little bit of cool universal stuff; those are the ingredients for a good young adult novel.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 07, 2012, 08:46:09 PM
Absolutely. Almost throughout every genre of YA, too.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 08, 2012, 12:39:32 AM
Probably because most YA readers are teens (duh) and romance is on their minds from puberty.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 08, 2012, 05:17:59 AM
Pretty much.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 08, 2012, 10:03:38 AM
On that, got a name for my guy; Asher. Had a friend named Asher, and it's fitting considering what happened to his home (burnt to ash). And, also, that was Zane's original name, apperently. Fitting.

Sweet! I added to my chapter a little, and I came up with a list of things that we need to figure out so that our stories match.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 08, 2012, 10:19:24 AM
Looking at it now. Good stuff.

How did you guys start talking about this stuff?
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 11, 2012, 11:29:45 AM
This is what happens when no-one else joins in the thread and you have two Uglies fans who know the era around where Tally's city is.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Khoela on May 12, 2012, 10:03:01 AM
Haha! And now we have two chapters of a fanfiction: http://straif5.deviantart.com/art/Survivors-Chapter-1-300900356

Hell yeah. Working on the thrid as we speak.

Post by: Khoela on May 12, 2012, 10:48:10 AM
Aweeesomeee! I think I'll wait till you're done for chapter four, so I can pick up where you leave off, since Skylar will probably show up somewhere in yours.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Straif on May 12, 2012, 11:02:35 AM
Yeah, she'll show up at the end as a, in Asher's words "rain mirage". Or at least he thinks shes a mirage.

Nice! Can't wait to read.

Yeah. I'm really proud of it.

Awesome! I'm crazy busy this week but I'll do my best to edit when you finish!

Cool. Might be a bit. Got school and work to deal with.

Hear you. I was so tired tonight during rehearsal I got sent home early.

Ah yes, tireness compensation. I love when I get that in performances. Though I haven't done many, and mostly I have small parts. I did get to be an ODST in the Halo version of the nativity my community center did.

Scared of what? Ridicule? People can't hurt you over the internet.
Title: Re: Hmm.. If Uglies was ever a movie...
Post by: Abby-la on June 08, 2012, 06:19:28 AM
No. This sounds stupid. But I have some trust problems. And I'm scared someone will track me down and kill me in my sleep.
