(Meta) A Dollhouse poll

A quick update: I've done four of the requested drabbles and I've still got four to do. I'm also pleased to say that Netherlands to Nepal was runner up in the Viagra Award ('Best Unsung Fic') at forbiddenawards, while It's Curtains For You, Slayer has been put forward for Best Lighthearted Spuffy at the Rogue Poet Awards. Big thanks to whoever nommed me. :-)

Next, a poll about Dollhouse. I'm curious to know your thoughts:

We've been shown most of Caroline's initial interview with Adelle, where she was asked to sign the contract agreeing to become a Doll. For those who don't remember it so well, I've included a full transcript under the cut:

"I'm going to make you an offer."

"I told you. All I want is to be left alone."

"We both know we're past that."

"Gee, what gave it away? The big black van? Or the being held in this room for two days with no fricking idea where I am?"

"My offer is this. Your life for your life. I get five years, you get the rest. You'll be free."

"Is that you talking, or the Rossum Corporation? Why me? Why did you pick me?"

"Caroline, you picked us. This is a good thing, Caroline."

"I know what I saw. What started this?"

"You and I have been doing this dance for almost two years. I thought you'd learn by now. Nothing is what is appears to be."

"It seems pretty clear to me."

"Because you're only seeing part of it. I'm talking about a clean slate."

"You ever try and clean an actual slate? You always see what was on it before."

"Are you volunteering...?"

"I don't have a choice, do I? How did it get this far?"

"Caroline. Actions have consequences."

"Oh God. You're loving this, aren't you?"

"I'm sorry you don't understand what I'm offering here. But what we do helps people. If you become a part of that it can help you."

"Right. You're just looking out for me."

"Perhaps better than you have. We can take care of this mess. After your five year term, you will be free to--"

"I don't deserve this. I was just trying to make a difference. Trying to take my place in the world, you know, like she always said. And now, I'm... I know. I know. 'Actions have consequences'."

"What if they didn't?"


So, here's the question: if Caroline had turned Adelle down, said "No", refused to sign the contract - what do you think would have happened to her?

Poll #1394866 What if Caroline said "No"?

What would the Dollhouse do if Caroline had turned them down?

Kill her and dump the body.
Mindwipe her and put her in the Attic.
Make her a Doll anyway, without her consent.
Erase the last two days from her memory and free her.
Edit her memory and hand her over to the police.
Let her go. Nobody would believe her story.
None of the above; my own idea is better!
