You know? I hated it that Artemis lost it immediately. It did serve a purpose, but come on... TTP barely started and he lost it! And he didn't even try to replenish it with the Ritual...! Why that? The Artemis I know would do anything to keep his magic, what happened?

I don't think we need spoiler tags in the Fowl of the Future section... but I'm not positive, so I'll put them just in case:

I really didn't like Artemis losing his magic so quickly either, and it wasn't just that I felt let down after the buildup in TLC about him having magic. It seemed OOC for Artemis to do it. Wouldn't he first call Holly, or someone else who knows what they're doing? He knows how risky major healings are. On top of that, he felt "resistance, as though his mother's body did not wish to be healed and was rejecting the power." It doesn't seem to me like Artemis would just keep shoving in every drop of magic after that.

So the whole thing didn't make much sense to me. I get the feeling that Colfer chose plot over characters/continuity here.

Well we have to think of it like this:


Artemis is changing, and for the "good".


Many times in TTP he was like, "Oh my God, look at how far I've come.
At the end of TLC I think was when the last bit of his super selfishness left him, and now he's moving on.

However, I do have to say I think that he's about to do some soul searching that will return to us a less nice, more evil, but still good Artemis.

As for his magic, they did make a HUGE deal about it, and now that it's gone, I'm sad. I'm sure that it won't be for long though.

MMK is right about the resistance part. Artemis, of all people, should know that that means something's not going right. He shouldn't continue, because when you feel resistance, it mostly just gets worse. A genius should know that if even we normal people know it...

I feel sad that he use up the magic just when the story start, I thought that he will do the ritual, but he didn't. And i thought he will have some other type of magic, but no. Well, thought he use his magic up, the scene of he use his magic was beautiful, blue sparks wraped up his mother, the body hovered from the bed. When I imagine the scene, I found it beautiful.

Even though Artemis used up all of his magic trying to save his mother, I wonder what would happen if he tried to do the Ritual :shock: . I mean Holly has many a time used up all of her magic and its not like she had lost it forever. Of course, it could be that just because Artemis isn't a fairy, he can't replenish his magic like fairies do :( . I'm getting all confused. What do you think, guys?

I have a feeling the ritual won't work with Arty. Sure, it was cool when he had magic, but...unless Holly or No.1 could find some way to give him some, I think his magic is gone.
That's sort of sad, I'm sure Arty could do so many cool things with magic.

What is true, however, is that magic is something in your brain, so it could be that Artemis can replenish his magic now he knows how to use it.

Well actually Artemis stole quite a bit of magic shown by the mention of Artemis using a mesmer on his parents and a serious healing on his mother. Unfortunatly it doesn't matter because Artemis used the last of his magic to try to heal his Mother

for me Its also a real disappointment that he lost it so quicklybecause i reckon if he kept the magic he could be half fairy and marry holly! and I dont know its just not very arty-like.

I do NOT think Artemis should marry Holly even if he did have magic! They are so wrong for each, but it's good that Holly is making him a better person. Anyway, I think Artemis is going to get his magic back or find a way to get more because in books no topic stays dead for long like when Artemis lost his memory and then got it back. Besides, if not, he definitely should have used it more. I think it was very like him to use all of his magic on his mother because even at the end of the first book he gave have of the gold back to her so she would heal his mother. He seemed desperate enough to save her that he would try it.

yeah, he had values, and now he has even more! so i say its pretty like him, and he was desperate, so he tried and did all he could, and even though he felt the resistance, he needed it to work, so he continued. though, he should at least try the ritual.

Maybe No1 could give Artemis his 'signature magic' to replenish his supply, like he did to Holly. Then it would be demon magic and not normal fairy. Slightly off topic but in TTP it says 'crimson sparks' or something like that. But in all the other books the sparks were blue. Is that warlock magic? If it is than why was Artemis's magic blue and not red if he stole it from a demon?
