Eddie would star reporting on the war and leave Aya alone, because Eddie's awesome and knows where the real story is.

And because, unlike Aya, he doesn't have a conscious. He's a lean mean reporting machine unwilling to give up or back down.

Neither. It's just a fact. Same as Deryn's a girl, Tally's no longer human, and it's been 300 years since the oil bug in the Uglies universe.

Okay, long as you're not an Eddie hater we're good. Anyway what do you think David's fate would be? For some reason I see him trying and failing to sneak onto an Extra base. Then when the Extras catch him, the put him under the knife.

I don't hate him, but I do dislike how he seems heartless. But we must remember we only see him from Deryn and Alek's perspective. What would he be like from, say, his lover?
And yes, he would try and sneak in, but the Mil's would catch him and mess with him. Actually, that's better; Tally screws up trying to sabotage something, gets captured, David and co go after her and get captured themselves.
Simply put; the Specials would prove to be worthless as I've always believed them to be.

That's a good question. Probably something mind rain related. Resorces?

Yeah, I was thinking that people started overpopulating and running out of resources on Earth, so they either stop funding the Extras (Which pisses them off.) or they wanted to get off the plant and take over wherever the Extras are living.

That works...and also; the Extra's aren't really human to them anymore. Like how Aya and Tally thought they were aliens at first. Well, to the people of Earth, they really ARE aliens. And, following human instinct, they label anything that is not THEM as EVIL.

Yep, sounds good, who would Rem and Hiro side with do you think? Their own dying planet or the Extras?

I'm not really sure...whichever would get them more power honestly. They seem pretty opertunistic, again like Eddie Malone. Problem is, we don't know a huge amount about their characters. I know that Aya would probably side with the Extras because she thinks she owes them for fucking their stuff up.

Honestly I blame Tally for that, not Aya.

As do I. But Aya's still gonna feel responsible. She's side with them...unless Tally did something against them. Then she'd switch sides.

Tally would side with David, who would not side with the Extras, he wouldn't want to leave home.
