...what did I miss? Thank God for Christmas break!
There could be some new adventures with the two twins... maybe we have some new prodogies.

I've been meaning to post this here for a few days, but I kept forgetting. Okay, a theory on Opal:
The Past and Future, or maybe just the Past one, dies. A clone of the Past one was made and sent back. Don't ask me about anything else; that's all I got for now...

That would be an interesting theory, except it's made clear in TOD that no technology exists that could make a clone that could take the original's place. All the clone would be able to do would be to lie, comatose... and Opal needs to be able to plot rebellion with Cudgeon. So it needs to be the real her.

I know, that's my only flaw. However, I did think, most of the time when a clone of something is made, it's never an exact copy, now is it? It's usually different somehow.
So, perhaps Past Opal was smart enough to create a clone, and this clone's intelligence was slightly degraded and was unable to make a clone like her.

I don't think it really makes sense... it seemed pretty clear that it wasn't just that Opal didn't know how to do it, it was that the technology didn't exist. Then again, what I learned from TTP is that Colfer doesn't really care too much about continuity. So I suppose it's possible... just not likely.

It makes sense from the viewpoint of Opal's personality, though. Because she was so much more calm and rational in TAI than she was in TTP... TOD seemed to say that her insanity was due to her coma, even though TTP takes place beforehand. If they were two different Opals, that might make some sort of sense.

So, our only hitch is that Colfer says isn't possible?

well i dont think that the whole cloning thing will come into play into the next Artemis Fowl because although it is possible it is unreliable and I dont think colfer will use the same plan twice

But he's not above using the same villain more than once, Artymon notes, scratching "Opal Koboi will make a clone" off his list of "Possibilities for AF7."

Well he has so many more options then to just use Opal. He could use a rebellious um what were there names (the two pixie henchmen of opal) anyway there are so many possibilities, opal may still be the focused on villian but he could figure something out...
