Which do you prefer? Colds or Allergies?
« on: July 26, 2014, 01:01:17 AM »
The impossible question of the day.  ;D
We discussed this briefly over chat several months ago, but I don't think anybody ever made a poll.  I was curious.

I have to say I, personally, am more partial to a character being sick than being allergic to something.  Of course allergies are awesome to work with, particularly in visual art, but when I really give this question a thought I know I prefer colds, because colds go hand-in-hand with some of my other favorite non-sneeze turn-ons: coughing, wheezing, shivering, cold weather, hunger, sleepiness, dizziness...  I could go on.
A character with a cold is more needy than one with allergies.  And neediness is something I really like in a plot.

TL;DR: I like anything that makes a character sneeze, but I prefer colds slightly more because the other symptoms particular to sickness really put the icing on the cake for me.

But I know we're all different.  So, what's your answer?
"You heard the man.  'Write it good.'  Yup, 'write it good' or it's back to wheezing your way through the flower show. *sigh* No pressure."

allergies, as they can be set off at any time. ;)

colds, though, have the advantage of being contagious. besides, who doesn't want to take care of their mate? :D

can't decide, really. i'm leaning on allergy, though.

Allergy.  I don't like people suffering for a prolonged time or being sick!  Allergies can be very temporary, and are also more interesting for being situational.

For me, colds have a slight edge. You seem to have less control of when sneezes happen. I also love the helplessness, the red nose, and the possible contagion that usually come with them.

I like allergies much more. I just feel bad for the person with a cold most of the time.
