I'd want to be a Midnighter.

I think it's exciting to be one of the few people to move around in the secret 25th hour and possess an incredible talent. It's nice to have that one extra secret hour to wander around and do whatever I want without any human interference. It also seems fun to kick some Darkling butt with the other few midnighters every once in awhile. I'd wanna be a flame-thrower without the side effect that happened at the end of the series. Even though the power is useless outside of the blue hour, I still think it's pretty cool.

TOTALLY a midnighter. No question about it  ;D. I like nighttime better than day anyway, and it would just be so cool to have a special power for an hour in the middle of the night, especially if it was all just for me and a few others (and I probably would be completely alone anyway, because it's so unlikely to be born at the stroke of midnight). I would want to be a polymath, because I like math and the concept of kicking darkling butt with it is completely awesome ;D. I definitely wouldn't want to be an insane peep or Special, and I don't want the obligation of hunting down other peeps. I also don't want to be modified and designed to kill like the Specials are. So, yeah, midnighter.

Special. The equation for it is simple; Special=Spartan 3-most of the awesomeness.
Return said awesomeness (by basically being anything BUT a Cutter) and you have something that would make even Cable shake in her boots.

Yeah, i meant to delete that post since i accidently pasted that on here when i thought i pasted a different response that relates to this topic. Cell reception at the Utah interstate sucks :(

I usually type out my forum responses on a notepad in my phone beforehand and copy and paste them onto here when the cell reception works.

I was meaning to post this:

Whoops! I mean flame bringer not flame thrower!

Oh, I didn't actually notice that typo until just now...

And Straif, if you want to be a Special, why are there three votes for midnighter and none for Special?

He forgot to vote. Some other person who didn't comment here had the third Midnighters vote.

Either Midnighter (aside from a mindcaster, though I have a feeling I would be a seer) or a sane Special. Both are equally badass in their own respects.

But, then again, Im kind of leaning more towards Midnighter.
