Hi, Scott!

I've got a question that's maybe a bit odd, but bear with me? I'm really curious about this.
Er... it's not technically writing-related, so I guess I'll put it here? ^^;

I don't know if you've thought about anything of this sort, but in the world of Uglies, would it be possible to get surgery to change your sex? (Either for people who are transgendered, or maybe just a crazy surge-monkey doing it for the fun/shock value/lulz)

In Tally's city, would they offer surgery like that, or would they simply figure that the lesions would just make anyone forget about the matter?
Would it be easier for someone to get that surgery in a city like Diego, or the setting of Extras?

Thank you so much, it's really awesome to get a chance to talk with you here! :D

Has there ever been a character who you really didn't like writing about/from the POV of? Or who has just like... really annoyed you?

Ok Scott you asked for random questions, here are some random questions:

What is your favorite form of Meat, and if you're a vegetarian, your fav veggie?

Ninjas or Pirates?

If you combine your two favorite colors what color would they make?

Are you an optimist or a pesimist (I won't judge either way)?

Discovery Channel or Animal Planet?

And lastly... If you could dominate any country which would you choose?

My guess is that they could totally do a gender realignment if they wanted to, and that some pretties do choose to get them. In Tally's city it would probably be for psychological reasons only, so would be almost as rare as in our world (but less of a surgical risk).

In Diego I'm sure that lots of people would get it done, most just to explore what it's like. In Specials, remember, we're only seeing the beginning of Diego's revolution, and only for a few chapters, so it may not have taken off yet as a thing, but I bet it would eventually.

I am a vegetarian. Eggplant or avocado.

Ninjas or Pirates?

Mimes!

If you combine your two favorite colors what color would they make?

Um . . . purple-ish?

Are you an optimist or a pesimist (I won't judge either way)?

Optimist!

Discovery Channel or Animal Planet?


Discovery, because I need the stars too.

And lastly... If you could dominate any country which would you choose?

Hmm, "dominate" is such a harsh word. I think being the king of Thailand must be fun, because everyone wears yellow on his birthday, and they all seem to love him. Plus: Thai food rocks.

Scott-la, how did you come up with the characters David and Zane? They were my favorite part of the Uglies series, and Tally and Shay's relationships with them would've been the juciest gossip TV could ever see; (if the series really happened, of course.)  ;D

Hey Scott, I know you're friends with John Green, so I have to ask...
Are you a nerdfighter?
Because I know you made him stand on top of that table.

Alek was annoying at first when he was depressed, and he had a bit of a stick up his bum, but he's much better now.

Tally gave me a headache by the end. Sometimes when Shay was yelling at her (like the split-up on the river in Specials) that was actually ME.
