Are you coming to Michigan or Ohio any time soon? You did once in the fall of 2010, which was an abnormally cold fall/winter and it's not always like that so don't be afraid to come back!

I was wondering if you had any advise for an aspiring actor/writer with confidence issues?
I believe it was based off of Japanese honorifics.

1) Did you ever figure out EXACTLY how fabrication worked? As in, the how the DNA was extracted, modified, and then reinserted?

Not really.

2) If you did, could you explain the process to me?

See above!

3) Do all fabs come from eggs, or just the small ones like lorises? What about the larger ones, like sniffers and the Leviathan?

They all come from eggs. Some eggs are wicked big.

4) Do Darwin's Laws of Fabrication apply to all Darwinist countries or just Britain? In other words, is it possible for, say, America, or Russia, or even Japan to create fabricated humans now that the war has "gotten real", so to speak?

That would totally make good fan fic.

5) Regarding Uglies; any reason you chose Seattle as the Rusty Ruins?

Was LA, but then global warming made me have to move it north to keep the climate right. Plus, there's good architecture in Seattle.

6) Have you checked out the Pretties RP I've been doing on here? (Probably won't ask that but I want to XD)

No. Sounds cool, though.

7) What would be the best way to take out a Special OTHER than the electrofied arrow trick in Specials? (Gas, high powered rifles, rockets, direct impact from a moving vehicle, etc)

Irony is always the best weapon against facism.

Favorite historic time period?

Twenty years from now.

As everyone else is probably dying and wanting to know, what can you tell us on the progress of the Uglies movie? The last update we heard was that a draft of the script was being turned in at the time The Hunger Games had been released (:

That is also the last I heard. BUT there will be an image from the visual effects lab involved (just a trial balloon) released soon.

Do you like David Bowie, Pink Floyd or Queen?

Bowie tons, Queen some, Floyd not so much,

Also, what's Alek and Deryn's birthdays/what season were they born in?

Argh I don't know. But probably not between early June and Late December, or we would have seen them have a party.

I’m curious, was this an oversight on your and your editor’s part, or were Zane and Tally just a bit misinformed and got lucky when the metal got heated enough to become pliable?

Yeah, I think the whole plan was fairly pretty-minded, but they managed to make them pliable.

How did you get your book published? Did you just summit the manuscript to a publisher or did you get an agent?   

Got an agent first. This is always best. An agent knows which specific editor at a pub comany will like your book. If you send it in yourself, it just goes to a random editor. For example, if your book is abotu a space cat who solves crimes, your agent will know that Editor X owns five cats, and will read any book with cats in it with great enthusiasm. That's why agents mostly live in NYC, so they can have lunch and find out who likes, cats.

scott how often do you spy on us? 

On the WesterForum, very rarely. In real life, only when you're outside.

Ps... do you remember that one time with that email I sent you with the news story? That stil makes me laugh

This I do not remember. SORRY.

If you could live in any era besides the current, which would it be?

Hey, new here.

Scott, I always felt that Shay was maybe a little bit in love with Tally. Do you think that's true?

Do you think Alek and Deryn were annoying as little kids?

And...Need I say it again?

Has anyone offered to make a Risen Empire movie? The Risen Empire is AMAZING! Especially the first couple of parts, with the super speed Rix, the orbital dropships and the protective goo, the servomotors that bypass injuries so soldiers can keep on fighting, the infostructure, the heads up displays, the railgun bombardment, the microdrones, the little quote, "the rix are like subatomic particles, you can't be certain of their location until they are dead" and the sapient house. It was almost too much too handle.
