Hideousxperfect (stylized as hideousxperfect) is a work-in-progress novella by Endless. In the fictional city of Fairhill, <INSERT STATE HERE>, a girl falls from the sky and remarkably survives, the whole city contorts out of shape, and that city's inhabitants gradually become mindless slaves to an alien force. Also Tasha Mayfield drops out of college.
Shortly after this rushed decision, Justin Cooper, a customer at the café Tasha works at, gives her an address she should probably go visit with the promise 'it could save [her] life'. Now, given he has something of a reputation for his world-is-out-to-get-me delusions, she's a little suspicious. But when she discovers her best friend to be irreversibly mindless, now a pawn of the alien, she reconsiders Justin's suggestion and is shortly dragged into a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits masquerading pretty well as La Résistance.
This page is a WIP, and as a result the trope list is incomplete.
hideousxperfect contains examples of:
- The Assimilator: Cora.
- Human Aliens: Cora.
- Mechanistic Alien Culture: Not the alien race from which Cora originates, but Cora herself, who was engineered to act like a Mechanical Life Form.

- One chapter is titled American Psychotic and the novel's style is hugely influenced by Bret Easton Ellis.
- Something of a Take That!, although the chapter has a lot to owe to Homestuck as it takes place in an instant messenger:
- The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized: Implied that the resistance would be this... if they were less incompetent and prone to in-fighting. Not dying would help too.
