That part of book 5 was one I wish had a greater impact on the rest of the series!
I think that in knowing someone so completely, it would be impossible for them to "hide" who they are anymore — lying becomes pointless when the difference between yourself and another becomes blurred. Considering that the first few books have one of the defining conflicts in Artemis and Holly's burgeoning friendship be, "how much lying is Holly willing to tolerate, and conversely, how much honesty is Artemis willing to adhere to?", it'd be interesting if book 5 marked a turning point. Suddenly, the conflict arises from the discomfort of there being no more lies to tell.
ok so i was reading The Lost Colony today, and when Quan, No.1, Holly, Artemis and Abbot are transporting the island (hybris i think??), they knew each others opinions, memories and secrets. This is so interesting to me - just imagine the possibilities. What if thats how you found out you were a loud chewer?? Or maybe one of them had a really dark secret, that now all the rest of them knew??

I find it so interesting that in book 4, Artemis and Holly are chased by trolls through a fairy-made replica of the wonders of the ancient world, as Opal thought it'd be amusing for them to get killed on the steps of the faux-Temple of Artemis.
Specifically, because of the history surrounding the monument — despite the temple's name, it's not technically dedicated to the Greek goddess Artemis.
The goddess Artemis of Ephesus (Αρτεμις Εφεσία), known also as Diana of Ephesus, was a supreme deity of the city of Ephesus. Before the Greeks took over her cult, she was a local Asia Minor goddess who was more similar to Near-Eastern and Egyptian goddesses than to the Greek Artemis. In the earliest period of goddess’s cult, presumably from the end of the 10th century BC, she was an unknown goddess, venerated as the mother of Ephesus, which was later, upon the arrival of the Greeks, equated with the Greek goddess Artemis.
- From Nadežda Gavrilović Vitas' "Artemis of Ephesus"
Essentially, the Temple of Artemis was a monument to the fascinating power of syncretic beliefs in the ancient world; the Ephesian Artemis is a fascinatingly local, hybrid deity — a version of Artemis who, in truth, was more so a renamed version of a preexisting goddess.
While the Greek Artemis was a rigid figure associated with the hunt, who was borderline hermitic, who was an eternal maiden, the Ephesian Artemis was hermetic -- a mystic figure associated with bacchanalian festivals, young love, and protection of the city of Ephesus.
The dimension of her cult dedicated to magic is one of the more notable characteristics of her followers:
The adherents of the goddess considered her a mistress of the Underworld and the one who held power over the demons of the dead and the demons of Nature. She was also connected to magic and magic rituals, which is implied by the Ephesian magic letters known as Ephesia Grammata, written on the feet, belt or the crown of the goddess’ sculptures and statues.
- From Nadežda Gavrilović Vitas' "Artemis of Ephesus"
The way the lore of the Ephesian Artemis manages to capture the characteristics of the People (magic, "the underworld", nature, etc) while also having a connection to Artemis' namesake (the Greek Artemis) is just... so much fun.

Hi, everyone!
Here's a form to see if anyone would like to collaborate on a digitally-produced zine, which will be available to download for free when completed. At minimum, we will probably need 10 people. Even if you've never participated in a zine, you are welcome to apply :)!

For what it's worth, I am fully aware my writing style verges on 'smarmy twitter journalist who somehow landed a WaPo job despite really, really not being qualified for it', so :/.

I unfortunately have a very specific mental illness that makes me extraordinarily blasé about loud nature sounds (e.g. birds screeching at 5 a.m., storms, violent rustling sounds out in the trees, fisher cat cries, etc), but apoplectic at the sound of like, distinctly human disturbances (e.g. someone revving their car very loudly, etc).

Not even the People are immune to the awesome power of, "Well, no one else seems to be doing [thing], so maybe I ought not do [thing] either? Wouldn't want to look like a weirdo at the hostage crisis zone, after all."
Foaly's intelligence and information systems must have virtually immediately revealed Butler's first name to the People, and yet they never once used it or even asked why nobody else did. Out of respect??

I'd love to have you on board, should this pan out :)! I figure that having a mixture of art and fic would be a great way to make sure contributing to it is open to as many as possible.
I am... very compelled by the idea of trying to run a zine for the 20th anniversary of AF's release. I am not sure I'd have the time/savvy to run a charity zine in the fashion of the A Fowl Mood zine (the Tumblr from a few years back is here), but a small, exclusively digital release format miiiight be fun to try to collab on, should others be interested in a project along those lines 👀?

I love when someone brings up a topic on my dash, and thus through the digital mycelium, all the other folks on my dash start talking about the same thing. It’s very fun!

It took like… almost a week or two before Butler was caught camping out on the St. Bart’s grounds when Artemis returned to school after the sinking of the Fowl Star.
Do you think any of Artemis’ former classmates are like, “yeah, do you remember that year where a kid’s uncle was secretly living at the school??? does anyone else remember that. Please tell me I’m not confusing reality with a weird dream I had.”
“D’you mean the guy who started living on the golf course after the head of Residence Life said he couldn’t stay in the dorms? He seemed nice enough.”

"Artemis the hunter. I hunted you.”
(The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer)
The phrasing Artemis uses in this exchange always has interested me, as characterizing the trap he set for Spiro as "hunt[ing]" is just as odd as it is (arguably) deliberate.
"Hunting" (in the sense that he is invoking it -- I am not speaking for modern game hunting practices) has the connotation of an active pursuit of one's prey, of the chase, of the capture.
Certainly, if we think of the goddess Artemis, the "hunt" takes on an "active" sense, with the hunter stalking after (and ultimately subduing) their quarry.
Tumblr media
[source // Description: Detail of Artemis drawing her bow from a depiction of the death of Actaeon. The goddess wears a head-band, a deer-skin shawl, and a quiver strapped across her back.]
However, does "hunting" characterize Artemis' plan?
If anything, the events that transpire in the Spiro Needle are an intentional inversion of hunting. The plan is predicated on antagonizing Spiro's team into chasing after — indeed, hunting — Artemis & Co.; the idea being that Spiro would be allowed the illusion of having won after a pursuit that was orchestrated to go exactly in a way that would benefit Artemis. If it is a hunt, then, it is a hunt that ends by reversing the roles of hunter and prey. Through deception, deliberate isolation of Spiro from the allies that would make him strong, and magic designed to bend the minds of those at Fission Chips, the narrative places Spiro in a similar position that Artemis found himself in En Fin.
Hunter becomes hunted; the material world of man is bested by the fantasy world of the child; corporate chauvinism is made farce by previously-mocked androgyny. Up is down, and down is up.
