Default Radiant Fluid Colour?

Following on from jenb's Thread about radiant fluid, I thought I'd post a poll about what colour people generally think radiant fluid is!!

I'm still leaning towards a light golden yellow color... kind of like hair gel.

The red and blue choices have the right colours with them, but the others ... ... ...

I always thought of it as a clear viscous fluid. I suppose lightly yellow or gold would suit.

Mary, if it was claer how in Terra's name would you see the difference with relaxing fluid or sensual-mood fluid for that matter?

Translucent is perhaps a better word than clear.

I saw it as green like the color of the slime from nick. not the pale one that looks like meltedmint chocolate chip ice cream, the gooey one like from the good old days of double dare.

I could close it if you like, though future visitors may wish to register an opinion as well.

Or we could restart it afresh, with yellow added to the list of choices.

But then wouldn't the yellow voters have to vote from Other to Yellow? Maybe I am being unusually (ahem) dense here

Right, and then we'd have an accurate count for yellow vs other.

If nobody minds having to revote on a new poll for Yellow then it's fine with me!!

Should Gold and Yellow be seperate entries?

I'm gonna post this in both Radiant Fluid threads, just so everyone gets a chance to see it.

I emailed Anne asking her what color the fluid was to her. Yes, I did say that my favorite was a golden color. But here's HER reply......

"Some sort of a vivid sea green, like apple green or the green of cat eyes. I don't think I ever specified now that you mention it."

There's your answer!!!
