Ah, I understand now. And what would be the point, really, of killing Mulch? There wouldn't be one!!
Hmm, that's very true what you said about Root. Although I think he was very likable...everything he did, he did for the good of other people. He was such a good role model. But I guess his death was kind of supposed to prove a point.
That's sort of a sick sense of irony, though, like the last safe place or whatever is destroyed. But reality is true, I'll give you that. Maybe it's what Artemis sort of needs to complete his growing up. Ah, now I'm contradicting myself again!

Yeah, the death of Butler would certainly help Artemis growing up. He cried in TEC about that too, remember? And that was a huge emotion for him at that time. So it would develop Artemis' character very much. But it would be almost unthinkable, Butler dead.

Yeah, I forgot that he had cried when that happened. But does Artemis really deserve to have his oldest friend die? I mean, that's just not right!! It's someone that Artemis pretty much always respected..it'd be like losing his father again, but so much harder.

Pinkfairy: I had to delete your post. Please make them less spammy. Just because you created the topic doesn't mean you can post whatever. If you want a topic just about spam go to the random forum and post one there.

I've been rereading them, and Artemis actually cries a decent amount.
It would be as hard as losing his father again, but it's kind of reality. Butler is getting older, he has to be let go sometime.

But the fairies did say in TEC that Butler would live longer. And it would be kind of sadistic if Butler died. It would be hard for everyone. And then Holly lost 2 friends. And we don't really know if she already got over Root dying.

I know he'd live long if he was just to die a natural death, but his reaction time is slower and he can't run as fast.
I'm not saying that he has to die, just that if somebody had to it would be him.

I like Butler. He might be a bit slower but that is no reason for him to die.

well ovisly (sorry bout the spelling) if butler does die it wont be of natrual reasons it'll be because he was trying to protect artemis or maybe even juilet!!!

but if he does die i think that he would die noablly and with artemis at his side... and yes artemis will probley cry but maybe he will toughen up knowin that butler is not there (possibly muscles?????????????????) hmm that would be intrestin...

If Butler dies, I think Artemis will just get a new bodyguard. There is no need for him to look after himself just because his bodyguard dies. But I really hope it doesn't happen.

Carino is right Artemis would probably just get a new bodyguard, and Butler can't die! :?

He can, watch me *puts gun against Butler's head and pulls the trigger*
Nah, just kidding. I don't want Butler to die! It would not be right. Why do all the good people die so early! *Nope, not counting Cudgeon.*

Well, they don't all die that early seeing as how not that many people have died and, oh yeah, Arty is still alive. But I think every series kills off a few good people, doesn't it??

You are so not counting HP, are you? That were way too many people. But well, you're right.
Sweep - Cal, Maeve
Darren Shan - Mr. Crepsley
Eragon - Brom

And I could go on and on.

Yeah, JKR overdid the killing thing a bit! It was sad. Did anyone keep track of how many people actually died in that?
Oh! We're WAY off track...Butler! Umm....?

HPDHNope, but I thought I read somewhere that she killed about 20.
Yeah, Butler. What's to say about him? He's big... :P
