If you could...
« on: May 03, 2014, 09:07:25 AM »

Would you get the pretty operation? What about without lesions? What about the Special operation? Would you do Radical Honesty? Would you want a hoverboard (as if that's a question ::))? Hovercam? Hovercar? Hover-anything else? Flash tattoos? Would you be a Smokie? If you lived in the Extras world, what body modifications (or lack of it) would you do? What about brain modifications?

Pretty operation - maybe. Maybe I would rebel against the values of society and want to make my own path, or maybe I would be fine with having a perfect, oblivious life. I cant really say what I would do for sure. Either way, Pretty, Smokey, or maybe even (non-cutter) Special would be fine with me.
Extras - No radical honesty (which is kinda like extreme Candor now that I think about it...hmm...). Probably an eyescreen, flash tats, and maybe minor boy mods. As for cliques, I'd probably be a Neo-Foodie :)
Hover tech - Hover everything! Although I wouldn't record my life on a hovercam, I just think they're cool.

Me... I definitely wouldn't get the pretty operation either way. I might be a lesion-less special. I might get Radical Honesty. I'd have to give it more thought. HOVER EVERYTHING. I'd definitely get flash tattoos. I'd change my hair color almost constantly. In fact, I might have it cycle through colors on its own if it could to that. I'd probably change my skin to colors skin can't normally be, too, just for the fun of it. I might try to have cat ears or bunny ears at some point, but it probably wouldn't last. And I'd be too chicken to run away to the Smoke. And I'd probably be a tech-head or a Neo-Foodie or both.

Lesionless pretty as well...well, minus the pretty part.
I'd keep my looks more or less the same, but I'd get all the upgrades.
Unbreakable bones and teeth, increased healing, the whole cybernetic upgrade deal. (Basically anything that hte Spartan-IIs from Halo got, I'd get, plus extras)
Oh yeah, and intrinsic weaponry too. Thats one thing Specials should have had...shotguns that extended from between their tibula and fibula.
And maybe some tech that would let me change my appearance at will.
And a hovercam too. Loaded with Lancet micro-missles and some kind of cloaking sheild. So...less like Moogle, more like Jack from Gears of War.

Being a pretty with lesions would be pretty great honestly. No real responsibilities or fears? No more insecurities or disordered thoughts, no more being unable to stop telling myself I need to change or I'm not good enough because I'll have other, less important things to worry about and I'll be happy all the time and most likely never cry again? Yeah, sign me up.

Plus hoverboards and flash tattoos, oh yeah.

I agree with Rai. Life can get a little too overbearing at times. I would like to be perhaps a pretty with the lesions. Maybe also a Celtic knot flash tattoo!  I would (in the uglies world) probably get talked into joining the Cutters, which means BOOM! Special-Headed Cabbie-La for you. After the mind-rain, Tally's the last Special Special. So bye bye, Special-Headed Cabbie-La. I would maybe become a manga-head, or a techie. Or both. Hm. I would definately want a hoverboard, but if they ever made hovershoes, I would jump right in and fly away. Y'know, this would be enough character information for us to use in an Uglies RP. Just a thought.

Hmmmm. I'd be tempted to make a few modifications, like being taller or having a less round face shape, but I wouldn't do too much. I like my appearance, for the most part.

I wouldn't let them touch my brain. No. I may be overly sensitive and way too emotional, but I don't want a bunch of surgeons messing it up. Nope. No way.

Getting more specific!

Face Shape - Longer, with higher and more defined cheekbones. Also less babyish.

Facial Traits - Smaller and less beakish nose, longer lips, and bigger eyes (maybe I'll get those jewel clocks).

Body - Slimmer and taller. Smoother body (I don't shave) and possibly smaller breasts.

Tattooes - I'd like a flash tattoo of two twin snakes running up from the small of my back, intertwining, and then seperating to run around my arms and end at my knuckles.

Cliques (In order) - First, the Crims. Then, the Cutters. Then, the Tech Monkeys.
