Alice comes from poor, humble origins, so her wild, impossible aspiration [[MundaneLuxury is actually fairly mundane]]. Her friends and family treat it like a pipe dream, but she meets a mentor from a higher class who tells her to go for it. But she runs into many difficulties along the way that make it seem out of reach...
* '''Averted''': ???Alice has a HumbleGoal, or is content with her current situation.


Added DiffLines:

** Alice does some stupid and dangerous, not to mention questionable, things in her quest to become special. However, she [[HeelRealization figures out what's happening]], [[TheAtoner makes amends]], and ends up genuinely being special [[HadToBeSharp because the situation brought out her best qualities]].

* '''Played For Drama''': In her quest to become special, Alice becomes a monster. Maybe a supernatural monster like a vampire, maybe just a CompleteMonster. Then she is faced with the reality of [[WhatHaveIBecome what exactly had she become]].

* '''Played For Laughs''': in her quest to become special, Alice tries to be a blatant parody of a MarySue, because that's her idea of special. She changes her name to something really over the top, dyes her hair to some crazy color, starts wearing a tiara (made of plastic) and riding a unicorn (a kid's toy horse on wheels, with a horn attached by krazy glue). She becomes everyone's laughing stock.

Alice works on her self-esteem and realizes she's pretty cool too.too.
** Alice does a bunch of [[DealWithTheDevil stupid and dangerous]] things to become special, which results in her actually becoming special [[BlessedWithSuck in a not nice way]]. This is, however, [[CursedWithAwesome the way she likes it]], because according to Alice, ''anything'' is better than normal.
