The world it takes place in has to be different? You mean it just has to be a major change, or it has to be something like What if this existed? Or What if this happened and changed everything?

Yes, I am back! I have been super-dee-dooper busy. I just got back from vacation and I said to myself, "As soon as I get back, I am going to start posting on FG again. I miss those guys!" And I did miss you! I loved talking about AF with people who actually care! I might not be posting a lot in the next few days because there's still alot to do around our house, but I swear posts will start rushing in soon." Love you all!!!!

Either one works, I think.
It can take place in a different world, as long as it isn't a crossover, I guess.

I think that the prize would depend on the country. For instance, if you live in the US, it's possible for me to reserve you a copy of AF6, but if you live in, say China, it would be very difficult [unless you are willing to wait, of course :wink:], so we would opt to send you a copy of Airman from the US.

It's pretty complicated, and I'll get back to you once I get this sorted. But yes, there is a prize which is either Airman or AF6--that I guarantee. :P

They've actually moved the St. Patrick's Day celebration to March 15th this year because it falls on this year's Holy Monday [Holy Week, for Christians]. So instead of formally celebrating it on the 17th, we're celebrating it on the 15th. :D

Yeah, technical schmechnical. Bah humbug. :lol:

Yep, Amazon doesn't deliver to Israel, but Barnes & Noble does. Plus I could probably find an online retailer that does, so don't worry. XD

Yeah, I did my homework and looked up South Africa too. XD Yes, the sites I've consulted can deliver to South Africa.

However, countries outside USA & Canada do not have the "pre-order" option of AF6. We have other options, though:
  • I can pre-order AF6 for you through the Amazon.com [USA] website but that means that you will have to wait a little longer [maybe 2 or more weeks after the book comes out--I don't know how strict the Bureau of Customs are in your countries].
  • I can get you AF6 straight from a local bookstore in your country [and AF6 gets released in the rest of the world in August; for the US & UK, it comes out in July] but that means you'll get it a month after its July release. [*NOTE: But then again, would shipping from the US take just as long? I'll choose Expedited Int'l Shipping, but we won't be super sure that it'll get there super soon. Whoever wins, we'll talk about this in detail. :wink:]
  • I'll just get you Airman.

I decided that it's going to be the winner's decision, really. XD

I've been getting a lot of non-canon sequels lately. A lot of people seem to be confused as to what the difference is.

Questions like "What if this happened instead of the Eternity Code?" Are non-canon sequels. You're trying to alter the world of AF, not write a sequel :razz:

For an example (You can't use these ones, by the way), a good question would be "What if Artemis grew up in Communist Russia?" or "What if Artemis lived in the 1600s?"

So, recap."What if this happened to artemis?" = Non-canon sequel. "What if this were different about the Artemis Fowl Universe?" = Elseworlds Fanfiction.

Remember, non-canon sequels are outside the criteria. As good as the stories I've been getting are, they can't win as is, and I hate to see people do all that work for naught.
