I just thought this would be fun to see who is more popular among readers. There's no need for long explanations, just why or why not. Let me get the ball rolling: i vote for David, because you just can't beat the first love, and while i think Zane is a fantastic boyfriend, i think Tally and David are meant for each other

David all the way =]

It's a toss up, but I think I prefer David. David just has that depth and passion that Zane is lacking--but then I thought David would be big enough to forgive Tally for her betrayal and come rescue her.

I disagree. (no offense) I just think Tally and Zane were meant to be and once IT happened to Zane Tally and I were so sad. (if anybody here hasn't read SPECIALS, you won't know what IT is.)

but when everybody is pretty nobody is. I liked Zane better, he wasn't always making assumptions about Tally like David was in the Uglies. They both helped her figure out who she was, but David was a little more irrational. Zane was totally sweet.

YEAH! ZANE RULES! I made up this song:

"Zane"

"oh, Zane, it's so insane that you had to die, I try and I try, but every time I try to forget, I always regret it and I start to get upsetted I cry and I cry...........
Chorus: cry, cry, why, why did Zane have to die? Zane, Zane, I go insane, when I get reminded of what happened to Zane. Zane, Zane, oh, the pain, of being reminded of what happened to Zane. Zane, Zane, he and Jane, I mean, Tally were meant to be, but wow-wy, why did this hard-to-read pain have to happen to Za-ane?
verse: we all saw it coming, bu-ut why? it al-ways makes me cry. *sigh* if my mom hadn't spilled the beans (told me) which was totally mean, I probably would have cried more, for sure. Oh.... noooooo.... oh the pain... of Tally never again being able to see-ee-ee Zaneeeeee.....
Chorus: cry, cry, why, why did Zane have to die? Zane, Zane, I go insane, when I get reminded of what happened to Zane. Zane, Zane, oh, the pain, of being reminded of what happened to Zane. Zane, Zane, he and Jane, I mean, Tally were meant to be, but wow-wy, why did this hard-to-read pain have to happen to Za-ane?
I wish...... I hope...... he'll come back to life in EXTRAS... but do we know yet? nope... and if he doesn't.... if he wasn't... would we laugh? nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo......................
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...............
Chorus: cry, cry, why, why did Zane have to die? Zane, Zane, I go insane, when I get reminded of what happened to Zane. Zane, Zane, oh, the pain, of being reminded of what happened to Zane. Zane, Zane, he and Jane, I mean, Tally were meant to be, but wow-wy, why did this hard-to-read pain have to happen to Za-ane? (repeat 2 times)
why did this hard-to-read pain have to happen to Za-ane? why, why, why, whhhhhyyyy did this hard-to-read pain have to happen to Za-ane? whyyyyyy? I miss Zane..................................."

yeah, but even though she didn't know it, in a way she was stealing David from Shay.

I thought David was meant to be with Tally. Logically speaking, Zane and Tally were so great BUT there was always a barrier between them that didn't surmount to Tally and David's relationship. (I was secretly voting for Zane to be fair)

I was rooting for David at first, but in the end I'd say Zane. He just GETS Tally the way David didn't, and that's more important than people think.

Heather says:
I have to say Zane. I still like David, but I think Tally says why she is meant to be with Zane better than I could. David was her first love, and because of that, he will always be special to her, but she still fell in love with Zane, and I don't think it was just because they were both pretty. As another poster said, when everyone is pretty, noone is, and he made her clear headed. Even when she was no longer pretty headed and could remember David, she still fell in love with Zane. He understands her in a way David never could. If David had been her ultimate love, she wouldn't have still remained with Zane, Zane wouldn't have been the one she missed after she became special, she would have missed David.

(spoiler warning if you haven't read Specials)

I like them BOTH!! Between books I just keep changing my mind between the two. David WAS Tally's first love and they were the greatest couple in Extras, but Zane spent a LOT of time with Tally and it was OBVIOUS that he REALLY loved her. David kept switching. I mean, if he REALLY loved her, why didn't he forgive her?? And also, didn't Tally steal him from Shay??
On the other hand, Zane and Tally were pretty-minded when the "fell in love", and David didn't really love Shay back. It's obvious that Scott Westerfeld thought that David was a better match for Tally because in Specials Zane died. My older sister was practiacally in TEARS, and my freind was cheering her head off. She likes Zane okay, but she's IN LOVE with David. I just can't choose between them. They're so different from each other, and they're both AMAZING in their own way.
Anyway, FANTASTIC series!!

I really do like both of them, so this is sort of a hard choice. But I'd have to say David, he just had this pull on me through all the book.

I am going to have to say David, David loved Tally even when she was considered an Ugly. True David had a hard time forgiving her, but she had pretty much said that she was the reason that his only home and his father were dead, I am also sure that his mother didn't help much either. Also in the end of Pretties it probably hurt him a lot when she turned him down for a guy that was considered pretty. But in the end he was able to forgive her because he loved her. I may be the only person that feels this way, but sometimes it seemed like Zane was only a Pretty David in some ways which was why Tally seemed to like him and she got confused and thought that it was love. Also to the people that say that Tally stole David from Shay, I don't think that David really had any feelings for Shay at all, it was just Shay crushing on him because of what he represented, not who he was and I don't really think that David saw Shay as anything other than a new person that was there to help out Smoke, not like Tally who he seemed to fall in love with pretty quickly. It was sad what happened to Zane, but I am happy that Tally ended up with David in the end.

I'd have to say David. I did like Zane, but I'd have to say David.
