Title: If there was another book....
Post by: Cola on August 19, 2012, 02:22:23 PM
If there was another book, after Extras, what would you want to happen? Of course, there won't be another book :(, but I'm just curious as to if anyone has thought about this.

So somewhere Mr. Westerfeld said that the last word of each book in the series was the title of the next book (In Bogus to Bubbly maybe). But the last word of Extras was "cake", so he was clearly wrapping that series up.

Hypothetically though, what would happen in the next book, "Cake"? They would probably be up in orbit, where the Extras are starting the new civilization. But maybe not. Any thoughts? What would this world be like, and how would humanity ruin this one?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 02:33:22 PM
Cake would stand for something, it would be a Careful Aliens Keep Elephants or something (Can't think of anything else that starts with E right now.)     
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 02:50:50 PM
There would be awesome floating pretties and space funtimes. And then there would be a resurgence of military people and war would break out, and the CAKES would be some weapoin (Carbon Aluminum Kinetic Elimination System or something like that. A sattalite with a bunch of carbon-fiber and smart mater missiles in it)
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 02:54:52 PM
I can kind of totally see that. Though I think that the Extras wouldn't go to war with each other, they would attack Earth.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 02:57:42 PM
Thats what I mean. Sattalite weapons systesm are really only useful against ground based targets.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:00:14 PM
That's true, but I was talking about WAY in the future when the extras finally find suitable planet to colonize.   
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:04:12 PM
Doesn't matter the planet. Satalinte systems still work. But yes, I see how that could happen.
(cue Mils self promotion...)
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:07:40 PM
Yep, and I also see Tally going up there to try to save people and look cool, but failing and dying at this one.

(And stop advertising for the Mils, we all know who and what they are)
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:08:54 PM
Specials can't handle space I would think. It would play too much with their senses. The up/down loss would be shocking enough, and she'd try to cut herself without thinking, knife goes into her space suit and through...she dies of explosive decompression or sufficates and freezes.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:10:16 PM
Yep, but for some reason I see Shay living, and Ren and Hiro saving the day.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:12:33 PM
Ren and Hiro? Duh. Ren would fucking RULE space, and Hiro would be his right hand man. And Shay's always been cooler than Tally.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:13:59 PM
Oh Ren wasn't THAT much cooler than Hiro. neither of them would be the others henchmen, they'd be more like partners in crime.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:16:21 PM
That's what I meant. Right hand man usually means tag-team style.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:18:27 PM
Okay, that works for me. Anyway, I don't think Frizz would play much of a part in this.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:20:39 PM
He'd be to busy dealing with Aya. They'd fall out of the limelight after a while. Aya would be shoved aside by the Eddie Malone's and Adela Rogers of this universe.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:24:34 PM
Eddie would star reporting on the war and leave Aya alone, because Eddie's awesome and knows where the real story is.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:25:16 PM
And because, unlike Aya, he doesn't have a conscious. He's a lean mean reporting machine unwilling to give up or back down.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:26:21 PM
Uh, is that a complement or a dis to Eddie? 
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:33:14 PM
Neither. It's just a fact. Same as Deryn's a girl, Tally's no longer human, and it's been 300 years since the oil bug in the Uglies universe.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:37:26 PM
Okay, long as you're not an Eddie hater we're good. Anyway what do you think David's fate would be? For some reason I see him trying and failing to sneak onto an Extra base. Then when the Extras catch him, the put him under the knife.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:43:10 PM
I don't hate him, but I do dislike how he seems heartless. But we must remember we only see him from Deryn and Alek's perspective. What would he be like from, say, his lover?
And yes, he would try and sneak in, but the Mil's would catch him and mess with him. Actually, that's better; Tally screws up trying to sabotage something, gets captured, David and co go after her and get captured themselves.
Simply put; the Specials would prove to be worthless as I've always believed them to be.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:47:12 PM
What do you think would start the war?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:48:21 PM
That's a good question. Probably something mind rain related. Resorces?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:52:34 PM
Yeah, I was thinking that people started overpopulating and running out of resources on Earth, so they either stop funding the Extras (Which pisses them off.) or they wanted to get off the plant and take over wherever the Extras are living. 
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 03:55:02 PM
That works...and also; the Extra's aren't really human to them anymore. Like how Aya and Tally thought they were aliens at first. Well, to the people of Earth, they really ARE aliens. And, following human instinct, they label anything that is not THEM as EVIL.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 03:57:11 PM
Yep, sounds good, who would Rem and Hiro side with do you think? Their own dying planet or the Extras?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:00:45 PM
I'm not really sure...whichever would get them more power honestly. They seem pretty opertunistic, again like Eddie Malone. Problem is, we don't know a huge amount about their characters. I know that Aya would probably side with the Extras because she thinks she owes them for fucking their stuff up.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:02:21 PM
Honestly I blame Tally for that, not Aya.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:03:47 PM
As do I. But Aya's still gonna feel responsible. She's side with them...unless Tally did something against them. Then she'd switch sides.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:05:44 PM
Tally would side with David, who would not side with the Extras, he wouldn't want to leave home.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:10:40 PM
Sounds bout right to me. And she DID seem to enjoy blowing up their rockets...I dont' think she really likes them all that much anyway.
But the Extras would have the Mils, who left Earth to escape Tally and restart military traditions.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:12:34 PM
Well Tally doesn't really like anyone except maybe Shay and David.

 
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:13:58 PM
And her relationship with Shay is...tenus to say the least. I still think Shay's bi but doesn't want to admit it.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:15:18 PM
Yeah, probably, tho I don't know what she sees in Tally.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:17:55 PM
I don't know what my second ex sees in her current girlfriend either. So who knows? Though the manga version of her is HOT...
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:19:04 PM
As you've stated before, but I just don't find Manga Tally hot :-\
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:19:37 PM
That's cause your a straight chick. You SHOULDN'T find her hot. I am a straight dude.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:22:14 PM
Then let me put it this way, I don't even find her cute, Shay's much better looking and has pretty hair.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:23:03 PM
THAT is something I won't argue with. Tally's hot...Shay is napalm.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:25:17 PM
And Ugly Zane's hot while David has creep hair and Pretty Zane's a freak of nature.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:27:28 PM
Ugly Zane is white phosphorous. Pretty Zane I want to BURN with said stuff.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:30:11 PM
God, I'm not sure how I'll get through Cutters with looking at what they did to MY Zane.

Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:32:14 PM
I dunno if I'm gonna buy it at all...I might if I get some extra money, but it comes out about the same time as Bioshock Infinite...
I will say one thing, to qoute Asher Seaguard regarding pretties;
"Good God, they turned her into a doll! A fucking living, breathing, sentient DOLL!"
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:34:14 PM
Are you at least going to read it even if you aren't buying?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:35:07 PM
Course! I'm a Westerfeldite; I will read/buy whatever he comes out with if for no other reason than so I can have a complete mental image of the universe for fanfiction writing. And I'm an info addict XD.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:37:29 PM
Good, and yes, I agree,  they turned Zane and Shay into dolls, but Zane's not even a pretty doll. If someone got me a doll like that I'd give it to my cat to kill.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:42:23 PM
He's the kid of doll I strapped to a model rocket at age 14 and then loaded a too-big motor into. They both blew up. It was awesome.
And, he's the kind of doll that Asher mercy kills.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Lexa-Wa on August 19, 2012, 04:43:35 PM
Random butt in but it would be called Cake. Alright I'm good.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:44:26 PM
CakeS. It's always plural. Uglies. Pretties. Specials. Extras. Always with an "S".

Not in the story, no. That was just something that came out of a random sleepless night and the random crossing over of my OCs into each others stories. But it illistrates what I think about pretties rather well, right?

Yes it does.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:53:37 PM
All that needs to be said.
So, I wonder; will there be a sequel to Cutters? Somethign that takes place during Specials? I mean, it's mainly Tally doing her own thing during that...
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 19, 2012, 04:55:49 PM
That's the great thing about the manga, we don't need to worry about Tally, it's all Shay and they were separate for such a long time that we'll get an awesome Shay story.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:56:31 PM
Yeah. I like it when plot holes are filled in. INFORMATION. It is may addiciton.
Title: Re: If there was another book....

And then you add all that new info into the Mils.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 19, 2012, 04:58:34 PM
And my other Uglies fics. I've got a couple others. But Mils mostly I'll admit.

NOPE NOPE NOPE YOU GUYS HAVE IT ALL WRONG.

Probably soap flavor. Or... Sewer. Ewuk.

Actually, Luna, I've been thinking...remember how the cake was supposed to explode at the end of Extras? What if THAT helped set it off? Someone there thought the blast was an assassination attempt that failed?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 21, 2012, 03:18:45 AM
 that wouldn't be probably, it's too soon, the extras need time to create some military weapons.

Like I said; HELPED start. Not startED, but helped to start it.

Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 21, 2012, 03:23:02 AM
Yeah, the Mils would be doing the fighting, but wouldn't the Extras be the ones doing the planing and be like the generals?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 21, 2012, 03:25:23 AM
Thats what I was thinking yes. And they'd provide the Mils with information and vehicles and bases. Symbiotic relationship.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 21, 2012, 03:38:02 AM
Why did the Mils decide to side with the Extras?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 21, 2012, 03:43:23 AM
Probably after they decided to leave earth to escape Tally's group. They would want to take advantage of the mind rain to expand what their clique could do, but they couldn't do that while Tally was watching over their shoulders and could blow up their stuff. So, they would leave earth to get out of her range. Go to the moon, perhaps. And then they'd form a trading partnership with the Extras, and from there on out it would go further to symbiotic. The Extra's get everything that's needed in space, and the Mils make sure it gets there.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 21, 2012, 04:08:39 AM
Okay, I'll buy that.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 21, 2012, 04:10:55 AM
Makes sense. The Extras would be warry of Tally for what she did (you do NOT just FORGIVE that much destruction), and they'd want to make sure their supplies were safe. The Mils can do that because of what they know of Rusty history and tactics (something that no one else knows anything about), and they're wary of Tally too for obvious reasons.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 21, 2012, 04:13:10 AM
Obvious reasons? Such as she's an insane bitch?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 21, 2012, 04:14:36 AM
An insane bitch with a hard-on hatred for anything even RESEMBLING Rusty style. Hence her prevalence for blowing up shit.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 21, 2012, 04:16:43 AM
Honestly, by blowing things up she's kind of returning to Rusty roots.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 21, 2012, 04:18:02 AM
Something that I noticed myself. Here she is, proclaiming to be the "new Special Circumstances", and the majority of her things involve blowing stuff up or kidnapping people. Sounds more like a dictator and secret police than anything else.

I LIKE that! Asher Seaguard's gonna use that in Mils for sure.

I see her kind of treating her people like Hitler did.

Post by: Straif on August 21, 2012, 04:53:53 AM
Well, a really pretty female Hitler...but Hitler none the less. The best part? She wouldn't know it, because no one in this world would know who Hitler was. History repeats itself.
Title: Re: If there was another book....

She's scary not pretty. Remember she has special features

She's still prettier than Hitler was.

I'll admit that.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on August 21, 2012, 05:01:11 AM
EVERYONE is prettier than Hitler. But she'd be just as bad. And...really, I don't see her being that effective as time goes on. Eventually, someone will get the idea to use the surge to create supersoldiers that will put the Specials to shame, and that'll be the end of Tally's little group. Actually, I think that might be the Mils signature surgry; something like the Spartan augmentations from Halo.

Yeah, and more leathal. The Specials are only slightly augmented, Spartans are full-tilt. Outside of their armor, they're each over 7 feet tall and built like brick shithouses.

Yeah. But that's cause they were built to kill armed, trained humans by the dozen; living WMD's. The Specials were meant to deal with unarmed civilians.
Title: Re: If there was another book....

Exactly. THAT is why I dont' think the Specials are the super-uber-leet unit everyone thinks they are. They're NOTHING compaired to the spec units of other series.

I think Tally let's her Special attuide out more then she think's. more then her tiring to stop it.
I mean she's a bitch and before the third book she was sweet and full of sadness with guilt. it's like, this Special thing takes over more because she didn't have her brain rewired had transformed her into something she hated, into Dr. Cable in away. Like how Cable wanted people to follow what she told you to do and if you didn't you would get in a big troubled. Also she isn't taking the right steps into saving the world. both her and Cable had great ideas but don't know how to preform them correctly. Also they both use people. Man Tally is the next Dr. Cable.

Post by: Luna Lovegood on August 21, 2012, 08:55:43 AM
That's the point. She never go over her special brain. I mean, she's knowingly paranoid and a sociopath, but she won't go under the knife to cure herself. What does that tell you? Her paranoid side it dominant.

It tell's me she loves being a nut.

Of course not! You deal with a Special the way you deal with any other freak; from a good distancea way preferable with a large-caliber sniper rifle or explosive weapon of some form. Or, up close, a shotgun.

I am the biggest X-23 fan ever so allow me to answer this, she is a clone of Wolverine, the 23rd attempted at him being cloned.
Dr.Kinney made her become a girl because the Y gene was to destroyed to even consider the clone to be a boy. Her name's Laura Kinney, aka X-23.
That's just how she became the clone and why she's a girl just in case you ask if she's a clone why is she female? :D

I did a topic on it a ways back, here:

Truth- Both books have female main character
Truth-almsot half of all YA books have girls for main person in the story.
Truth- There is a love triangle in both
Truth-City of Bones, Twilight, Vampier Academy, Wickedly Lovely all had this, and no 1 said they were copying Scott.
Truth-they are both Dystopias
Truth- There are a heck of a lot of books like that right now, it's a popular topic!
Truth-In uglies, the government keeps the people, healthy, happy and pampered to they do not do crazy things or rebel.
Truth- In hunger games, they starve them, beat them, and torture them so they can't rebel.
Truth-uglies characters care about looking nice.
Truth- Hunger Game's people don't give a damm and care about making it to tomorrow alive
Truth- Hunger Games is written in 1st person
Truth-Uglies is written in third

Actually, it was a Twilight lemon that involved Bella in bondage and slowly turned into a full-on seperate fic.

Post by: Straif on September 25, 2012, 02:52:32 PM
I read that book actually.
And the title's not that bad. Fans would call it Quad A. And the title could have interconnecting lines within the A's. Very stylish, very Gothic.
Title: Re: If there was another book....

That's not a bad title.
 Fans that like math will call it A to the 4th power.

Yeah, it was one of those grinder books; the stories were short so they could just crank them out. Same with Magic Tree House and that other series by the same author of Animorphs, Remaints...THAT was a weird one too.

So good, that was honestly the series that got me into syfy. Before that that it was just my parents plopping me in front of the tv when I was 2 and saying. "This is Star Trek, you will love it. Now watch it."
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on September 29, 2012, 02:32:04 PM
Trek never sparked anything for me. I sorta kinda liked Sci-Fi as a kid, because I liked science itself, but I wasn't into it. Then 1997 came around, the anniversarry editions of Star Wars were released, and I was HOOKED.

would be my biggest dream. zane with health and happy with the tally. why not ugly series ended with a happy ending, gold key. the tally and zane are perfect soulmates. Scott please think of the legion of fans that mourned by zane!!

Zane's probably alive, yeah. His death really wasn't to plausable.
All in favor of saying he was kidnapped when he was put under anesteisa and replaced with a braindead clone?
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on January 20, 2013, 02:14:24 PM
I didn't much like him either, it just sounds plausable to me.
Personally I could care less...don't like Tally, don't like Zane, and I sure as hell don't like David (BASTARD MADE MY FIRST MIDDLE NAME A BAD NAME!)
Title: Re: If there was another book....

I don't HATE him I just don't like him. He and Gale from HG are on the same level of dislike. And Alek for that matter. They're like half-way between liking and hating. I feel...NEUTRAL that's a good term.
Title: Re: If there was another book....
Post by: Straif on January 20, 2013, 02:24:08 PM
Funny, I wanted to whack Alek actually XD.

Hey, could be worse. I hate Katniss in-book but her actor is a hottie. And I disliked Prim too but her actor looks like Anchor, kinda, so now I like her too.

Post by: Straif on January 20, 2013, 02:33:09 PM
Sure! Then Deryn will be all mine! And I only wanted to whack Alek for his naievety. I know it made him real, but I want to whack naieve people in real life too XD. I still like him as a character.

I didn't realise it until Anchor sent me a cosplay picture randomly...she has a mockinjay pin and I was like;
"HOLY SHIT."

My headcanon; just that happened. But Katniss is irreiparribly nutso, so she sees things how she wants to see them. Prim is dead to her, so she's dead in the real world.
Except Prim ISN'T dead, and spends most of the time Katniss is away doing her thing patching up the poor District 13 soldier who saved her...
(Cue romantic relation and healing montage)

i think that everyone should scrap the idea of cake and he should make a new book
called "protectors" or something.  i think the book should be about how tally and
david protect the world and things... and how tally keeps trying to re-wire her brain again.
it would have tally and david love in it too... concidering the fact they kissed in the end of
ectras. they could have the idea of the orbit somewhere into the strory line too. but i would kill to have another book on tally and david again! i enjoyed this series to much for it to enf! please someone tell scott to make this book! :'(
