With a roar, Butler charged the entrence, concentrating all of his considerable might in the triangular point of his shoulder. It was a blow that would have felled a medium sized hippoptamus. And while this door was tested plasma dispersion and moderate phisical resistance, it was ceraintaly not Butler-proof. The metal crumpled like tinfoil
GO BUTLER!!

I can read it fluently (How sad am I lol) mostly I taught my self just so I could say "I can do something Fowl can do" but write it. I suppose I could but it would look very crude.

sorry, I made a mistake on the topic I was typing too, but i'm not new anymore, so, I get it now. anyway, i'm studying gnommish, but I don't know it, I have a translator on me, so if I ever do run into a fairy, I can communicate.
there once was a twelve year old boy, who's computer was his favourite toy,
but when he captured a fairy, things got a little hairy,
for he's easy to annoy.

Actually, Artemis never SPEAKS gnommish in the first book. He just reads it. It isn't until later that he can speak it. And in The Arctic Incident, Artemis needs a translator, so he must not have spoken gnommish then, either. By The Lost Colony, he'd been around fairies often enough to have learned it.
