Is Tally older or younger than us?
« on: June 25, 2011, 06:33:13 AM »

So here's the thing... even though she's, like 20, during Extras, is she older or younger than us? Think about it... we're all centuries before her... so does that make us older or younger?

That makes us older in the realistic view point but from the copyright view point we may be younger.

I agree with this. It does make it so weird though.

Eh I'm the same age as her in Uglies/Pretties. But technically we are older.

we are younger/older in terms of biological age, we won't be living for 300 years
