but the author always knows their characters best. So E.C. must know what is right for Artemis, Holly, Minerva and everyone of them.

I agree. On that Colfer knows what he is doing and that Artemis should stay single. And though I wish I could have him, its not soley for that reason. I think it would make him to soft. And it's his hard, sarcastic side that makes him endearing. *squee* XD

Dee, I totally agree with you.
Sadly, though, that's totally off topic.
We're talking about Minerva?

DIE MINERVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Artemis is mine. I dibbed him tentuple times. (Tentuple isn't a number. But it is in my mind.)

"I dibbed him tentuple times" means "I dibbed him ten times".

He's mine, Minerva can't just waltz in and steal him like that.

So I say again,


DIE MINERVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm...It would be okay is Minerva lived. She strikes me as a Fowl wannabe and is a liitle annying but I don't mind her much. It would be really funny if they ended up liking each other and all that. Imagine what their kids would be like.

I think Minerva seems too perfect, so far. Evil, smart, and beautiful. But so is arty. I think her faults would be more intresting than how great she is. I don't think I should really judge her until the 6th book.

Minerva is mostly horrible because she's a Mary Sue character.

1) She's as smart as Artemis.

2) She found out about the fairies on her own, like Artemis did.

3) Wait.. does there really need to be a third reason?

I don't like her because Artemis is MINE!!! and because she's a Mary Sue character.

Yeah, Holly9? Sorry to break it to ya, but... Millions of girls say Artemis is their's. Yet, he doesn't even exist. ((I hate that nasty Italian wench to, though.))

In my opinion, it's pretty obvious that Minerva and Artemis will get together. Unfortunetly, I hate Minny. An A/H relationship just seems weird to me - considering how much they've been through together they still seem like the type to just be friends.

Grr. I agree, she is TERRIBLY Mary-Sueish. I never noticed that before...
What can I say to end my post?

And though I have no such ending,
I hope you enjoyed this little thing.
A poem is all I have to say
Hello, and hope you have a good day.

I really don't care who Artemis ends up with... but Minverva's character is just too... akward. She swears she'll make Artemis pay but Artemis says he hopes he will see her in a different light from a friend. Yet she promises to make him pay. Colfer never says if this promise may be completed and never talks about Minerva being in the book which means that he's maybe trying to avoid telling the truth of a romance between them or a fight because of the hatred Minerva has against Artemis. Minerva "waits" for him for three years but we dont know if she is acting like she likes him to complete this promise. :|

I bet she is waiting, she couldn't have turned good in just a few days, it took Arty a few years. And there's no one that probably changed her in the last 3 years.

It took Artemis a few years to become totally irrevocably good. But in the first place, he was worse than Minerva- she's more spoiled than evil. She felt genuine concern when she realized that there were civilized, intelligent, non-vicious demons, and they weren't all like Abbot. She also clearly has affection for her father, and the deep shock of his injury was definitely enough to get her on the path towards good. Then, of course, she's been hanging out with Butler for three years.

And if you think about it, to "beat Artemis Fowl", all she has to do is win at chess or something. Anti-climactic? A little. But I think she's 'good' now, and that's the worst she'll do.

If she beats Artemis at chess, then she will have become the ultimate Mary-Sue.

^Exactly.

One of the main reasons that I don't like Minerva is she's too Mary-Sueish!!! Mary-Sue and Gary-Stu characters are too.. bad! They ruin the point of the ultimate series!
