I’d have to say,
The orthodontist would be a reassuring lady that manages to hide a bunch of fine print into the contract.  I walk in thinking I’m getting just plain brackets.  But, she puts in upper and lower expanders (the ones with acrylic), TWO tongue cribs (so I can’t bypass when my mouth is open), big metal brackets with lots of loops and springs, a Herbst appliance, and lip bumpers.  There would be an insanely long treatment time of 10 years.  Of course, none of this would be removable.

If we're talking dream scenarios, I say throw caution to the wind and get creative!  ;D

Start out with old style full metal bands on EVERY tooth. Much less comfortable, much more noticeable. Because of these metal bands, a lot more time will have to be devoted to just keeping your braces clean, so they're also more impractical. Next, each and every bracket has an elastic hook on it, so it's sure to irritate your cheeks and lips, making them puff out and exposing your shiny metal mouth for the world to see! Of course, the archwire has to be as weak as can be. This way, your treatment time is as long as possible, leaving plenty of time for you to enjoy a full assortment of appliances!
First, your expanders in both jaws, turned once every two weeks, to really drag out the time it'll take to widen those arches so they stay in as long as possible, all the while getting food stuck in them making cleaning even more of a nightmare!
 Along with these are a lovely set of tongue spurs on each arch, made wide enough to clang into each other, making fully closing your mouth impossible unless you want your tongue to get shredded.
Now that you're rocking a painfully obvious lisp, let's saddle you up with a special kind of double headgear, a facebow for each jaw! Topped off with a nice set of Neon Green and Hot Pink headgear straps, just so there's no chance of hiding it.
With an ungodly mess of florescent colored elastics in 24/7, finally we wrap up with a bulky set of Neon Green Lip Bumpers for each jaw, just to make sure there isn't any chance of hiding that beautiful work of metallic art! You might as well smile, cause with your treatment time, you'll have all of this in for a solid 10 years! Lucky you  ;D
10 years ain't enough? Well don't worry, by the time you reach that milestone you'll be so used to your metal mouth, you wont want to have any of it taken out! But don't worry, we'll wrap it up with a set of permanent retainers, cemented into you mouth and connected by a set of piston arms on each side just to keep things interesting for you. Can't have a mouth that's too easy to clean! Enjoy  ;)

I would definitely want something simple like plain metal brackets but with some "extras" along the way like cervical HG and possibly an expander.

More of a scenario than a specific treatment:

The orthodontist is an attractive, dominant woman who starts me off with simple fixed metal braces. She doesn't give me much information on the future of my treatment, but with every appointment I find myself wearing some new device. Years go by and she's tried just about every device you could think of on me, and I've grown accustomed to walking around with some form of fixed headgear. She starts making comments about how pretty I look in braces, and how much she loves tinkering with my mouth, and I begin to suspect I never quite needed them in the first place, but at this point it's too late for me to do anything.  ;D

My dream treatment is the treatment that I’m doing right now. So to start out I had a massive overjet and I had teeth that were not in the right place. So I started out with top braces for about 2 months then i moved to top and bottom. Then after that for 3 months the headgears started. At first I wore a cervical headgear 12 hours a day and that was for 6 months. That didn’t provide good enough results even though I did comply. So I had a combination headgear wired in with 4 elastics on each side of the mouth also for 24 hours a day. I have been doing that for about a year and a half and my ortho has said that this will continue for about 6 more months and then after this elastics will be removed and headgear will be reduced to 20 hours for another year and then after that just braces for about 3 more months. Then after that retainers will be installed permanently. Edit: forgot to mention the braces also have had metal bands on them from the start and that I started this treatment at age 16.

If I had to add anything to a dream treatment it would be a top and bottom headgear so I have a facebow in the bottom jaw.

If you are looking for 'fun' braces, you could look at the braces shop (I have yet to place an order but heard good things). Alternatively you could go in for a consultation and see if there's any room for improvement  ;D

Heres my general preferences:

I'd want braces, just regular ones to start out with, but as time goes on, more and more appliances get added. Expanders, cemented twin blocks, a herbst, tongue crib, bite plate and/or a face bow(s). My personal favourite is definitely a cemented twin block, but problems arise as things like bite plates dont work with them.

So either I'd go for overall:
Braces that have Double expanders with cemented twin blocks, a tongue crib, forsus/herbst and headgear

OR

Braces with double expanders, a bite plate, headgear and a herbst

As for removable appliances, definitely a van beek is up there.

Actually, just found out about an EVAA appliance, which is a fixed activator. That's definitely something I'd want.
