A Continuation of the Uglies Series....
« on: March 02, 2010, 11:15:31 AM »

I was sitting in my room one day and this idea popped into my head:  why not make a book from the point of view of someone who was born a natural Pretty?  Scott writes about naturals in his books, it would be a good idea to write a book about it.  Just thinking outisde the box....am I crazy?  No....maybe....  ;)  What are your thoughts on the idea?  Tries to contact author about the idea, no response yet, but I'm still hoping.  :)


IS IT A GOOD IDEA?  WHAT DO YOU THINK?

But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Or just some random Natural Pretty... I'm still hoping he'll write about Moggle. :D
If he comes onto the next forum meet-up, you can ask him...

That would be cool. They'd still get surge so that they wouldn't get pimples (I'm assuming they still would) and boost their immune sytems, right? Cuz some might not think so.

I think they'd definitely get surge for their immune system and to boost their muscles. And probably pimples too; it's a natural human thing so I don't see how they could never get a pimple without getting surgery. (At least for that thing.)

Being born pretty would go to your head after a while, so a natural pretty would be a bubblehead even without having the lesions!

in ugly society being born a natural pretty would be quite odd, although i suppose they would still have small imperfections that the pretty committee would want to remove

Yeah. They would probably grow up thinking they were "imperfect" anyway, so they would get the lesions when they turned 16, just like everyone else. (Would it really be possible for them to be natural bubbleheads? 'Cuz it also cuts down on creativity and violence, not just makes them think they're perfect, right?)
