I just want Artemis to have the emotional dilemma of being a role model. It's not really an issue if they're infants and can't understand what he does.

And it's cuter when they're just barely talking. :D

I want something similar to that, too. Artemis, it's time for you to grow up! (It's not like he wasn't really grown up in the first place, though...he just needs to grow up...er...morally? Emotionally? I don't know what I'm saying anymore. :banghead: Maybe you'll get the idea. )

So, cause I'm too lazy too look back through the pages, didn't you feel that Colfer was on the line with the Warlock stuff. From the way it's presented in Lost Colony it sounded as if Warlocks were all demons and in none of the other fairy families. But in book 1 Foaly says the warlocks do their time thing into batteries - so is it up in the air or could only Demon warlocks restore the island?

I thought the six book was great. It could have been some insane reason, but i had a good feeling reading it. And ARtemis was a genius, outwitting everyone. The only part which was draggy was intrudcting No1

:lol: Another masterpiece!
There was no way I could stop reading when I had opened the book and started. I kept on till the end. I really liked the introduction of No1, he's such a charming little creature. The timetunnel idea was also one I found tasty, and putting in another mastermind (Minerva) in the book did help to make it a really good story.

The thing I liked the most about the book was the way it ended. When Artemis took a sample of magical power in when they went to Hybras I just thought: Oh. Oh! This can get interresting, very interresting. Can't wait for the next book :D .

If Artemis is one, who is the other? Who is the other human who can speak Gnommish?


Can butler speak Gnommish? Minerva can't. I think the other person has to be butler.
Here we go Holly. Are you ready?"
"Artemis! I'm the field agent here," came the irritated reply. "Stay off my band unless you have somthing to contribute."
"I was just thinking---"
"I was just thinking that you should change your middle name to Contol Freak."Artemis glanced across at Butler, who was lying beside him and couldn't help overhearing the entire exchange.
"Control Freak? Can you believe that?"
"The nerve of some people," replied the bodygaurd without taking his eyes off the chateau.

On page 141 in the lost colony we can find this:
"I do, but Butler is not so fluent. So English if you wouldn't mind."
That should mean that he speaks it, but not very well, right?

Minerva does like Artemis!! She just wants to get the award more. That's why they get along so well. And because they are both really smart. (Arty is smarter :wub: )

Well...I guess Butler is the other one who can speak Gnommish. It's really the only explanation we have.

The reason only demon warlocks could bring back Hybras was because demon warlocks are the most powerful. I'm pretty sure that's actually said somewhere.

And, I'm gonna say this again:

Arty has Magic!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 :wub: :wub: :wub: XD

Oh...I hate Minerva. I don't know why, but I do.

Minerva was humbled in the end of the book- I think she was just deluded with her own power, and needed a reality check. Now she's obsessed with Artemis, according to Butler (he says "It's Artemis this and Artemis that. she's really built you up into something special").

people another thought if artemis has magic and is half fairy then he can fall in love with holly cuz he will live for ages as well and over the years he could become more farie like opal became human !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Artemis is not fairy. He is human with magic. It says that humans used to have magic, but lost it. Artemis just regained it. Also, Opal did not become human, she just had surgery so that she looked like one.

that doesn't mean he'll age the same. didja know that (if Colfer wanted to use a historical reference) in the Bible times a man lived to be 968 years old? Colfer could branch off of that and say that when humans DID have magic they DID live longer. :D

B) cuz i'm cool like that.
