I don't hate Minerva, but I think she is too much like Artemis to date him. And it would be too typical of a relationship, a normal high school relationship for them, nuh uh. Mainly I just think they are too much alike. Why would you date yourself? I like Minerva as a character, but not as a potential lover for Artemis.

I agree that Artemis and Minerva are far to similar to date. And yes, it just seems too normal. I think they might get along really well for a little while, but at some point they will clash. Like Opal Koboi said in book , the world is only big enough for one child genius. (although they are hardly children anymore)

That reminds me:

Is Artemis really 18 and his body just hasn't become 18 or is really still 14?

Now Minerva is older than him right. Well not right because he is really 18 and she is like 15. I am so lost! :wacko:
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.

Biologically he's 14, but technically he was born 18 years previously, so he'd be 18 years old.

Minerva built Artemis up to something larger than life. She's in for a rude awakening, and I suppose we'll have to see what happens then. I think there'll be some very interesting clashes.

I don't care if Artemis ends up with Minerva, Holly, or no one. So long as it's exciting.

Awww!!! I like Artemis and Minerva! They both have goddess names and are both child prodigies! Holly and Artemis would just be too different...I mean, with the species, height, etc.

Yet again I say: It's too obvious. Anyone could predict that, and it wouldn't be like Colfer at all. Percise, if our dear Minnie turned up in a fanfic and not in the actual book, who wouldn't have screamed Mary Sue with all their voice?

Since the fans are older now, more typical teen-age relationship problems and love complexes can be placed in the next book. This means that this discussion might be moved over to the book so to speak. The choice between Minerva and Holly will be one which can trouble Artemis, who does he really love? I don't really think this will be, but there certainly is a possibility.

I think Minerva is a beautiful name. It's very realistic that people who are alike will like each other, that's human nature. We don't want to feel alone. And it seems that the more alike we are the more we like each other, basically of course. There can be special cases or circumstances that makes it inlikely for two people who are alike to like each other. So in real life I would find it likely that Minerva and Artemis fell in love and married. But then again, Holly and Artemis has been through alot together. And that certainly helps to improve the bond between people.

I don't really see the race difference as a big problem. It might even be used to point out that love will conquer no matter what, or something similar.

Personally I'd like it more if it was Artemis and Minerva.

How about this?

Artemis and Minerva get together etc. but Holly and Artemis stay best friends, since now they each have one eye of the other, so that means they actually are one person, linking them. So Eoin Colfer will have to find a way to link Artemis and Minerva so he links them as more than friends etc. Concluding that Artemis and Minerva share a romance relationship whilst Holly and Artemis share a friendship one.

I'm having problems understanding what you're trying to say here. Could you try to form full sentences? And it would be nice if you avoided all those spelling errors.

OK, ignoring the lack of proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation...

1) If Opal came back, she would just be an overused plot device. Coming back once was interesting, because she wasn't as active as Cudgeon in The Arctic Incident. Twice is just too much. Also, the chances of her falling in love are next to none: She's too self-obsessed.

2) Once again, bringing Root back would be an overused plot device, after Holly came back. Eventually, we'd all just say "Oh, that character's dead, but you know Colfer will just bring him/her back". And also, I hate to say it, but Root's death was a big part of what made The Opal Deception my favorite of the series. Not only was it well written, it was surprising. So if he came back it would feel a bit like Colfer cheated.

3) Although it's off topic and shouldn't be on the forum, Harry and Ginny still love each other. The only plausible reason for them not to get back together after Voldemort's defeat would be if Harry died. Which is possible.
