Here goes nothin’!
Artemis was screaming and screaming. Making as much noise as possible seemed to only way to let out his joy. He felt he’d burst if the world didn’t hear how amazing this was, there were no words to describe how he felt, he just yelled like he never had before. Wind rushed through his hair and dust motes in the air stung his eyes, but he kept them wide open. He wasn’t going to miss a thing.  

“Isn’t this wonderful?” Gabrielle yelled over the sound of the wind.

Artemis’s smile had never reached his eyes as it was now since he’d been a toddler, and being lifted up be Butler had been his rush. Being so high up had made his feel so… Powerful, now he felt as high as the clouds, though really he was only a couple of hundred feet up.

“It’s freaking amazing! It’s amazing!” Artemis resorted to using such words before he could come up with a more academic to say. His pale, ghostly feathers stood up proud against the wind on his fourteen foot wingspan. Flecks of black and duck-egg blue seemed to leave streaks across the perfect sky. Perfect. This was the most perfect day. Today he wasn’t a freak, today he wasn’t being laughed at, prodded or poked. Today, he wasn’t being stroked or cooed over as if he were a children’s toy. No one was laughing at those yellow, useless baby wings. He’d grown into himself now.

“Mind, don’t you try anything fancy-pants. Leave the back flips and the spirals to people who know what they’re doing. I’ve had some dead cocky people who for some reason think they can loop-the-loop before they even learn their homing skills.”

Artemis was so astounded, he forgot to stay horizontal and began to plummet to the ground and had a small panic attack before he caught himself. It occurred to him that maybe they should go a little higher to stop him from ending up as a criminal mastermind pancake.

“We’re not going any higher, if that’s what you’re thinking. You need to get used to high altitude first, I don’t want you passing out on me.”

“I have homing skills?” Artemis exclaimed, not really hearing the last snippet of information Gabrielle had given him.

“Sure, how else are you supposed to get around? You won’t usually be this low, and I tell you, until you learn the stars, it’s really all the same up there.”

Artemis would, before now, have found this information just something else that proved him a freak, but now, it just seemed like another one of natures little miracles. How many more built in gadgets did he have?

But for what purpose? He still had no idea what his purpose in life was. Okay, so he had homing skills, and he was flying, but where did that leave him?

“Gabrielle?”

“Yeah?”

Wind tugged at his muscles he’d never used before, and his shoulder blades were starting to ache, but it really wasn’t bothering him that much.

“What am I supposed to do with myself now?”

Gabrielle took her eyes of something that seemed interesting to her far ahead in the blue and white of sky and wispy clouds to look into Artemis’ keen, deep blue eyes. There was excitement in there, and a whole life full of potential and hope, but he also has a hint of fear. At the moment, his face said he was lost.

Gabrielle laughed delightedly, stretching her wingspan as wide as it’d go. Blondie, water-proof feathers covered her proud wingspan and she laughed and laughed.

“Now, Art? Now, we just have to save the world!”

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I’ve been working on odd chapters for this, but I think I can do better than my original layout, so I’m writing it from here.

Now… Cloud Nine… Artemis Fowl and the Ninth Cloud, for you people who’ve never come across it, is going to be halted for a bit. I need some inspiration. I think I burned myself out doing all those super quick updates at the beginning. I am not STOPPING just postponing, for as long as it takes to write this, which is just a little uplifting, swan of a story that won’t take me more than a year if I stick to it.

The thing is, doing only one story makes me bored, and I start to resent it, but doing more than two makes me go into a little overdrive. I know you’re thinking, but you stopped Alexander! You are only writing Cloud9! I’m not! I’m writing my novel, I’m doing homework, I’m working hard on Alexander’s re-write, and I’m writing a little quirky non fan fiction story of my Dad’s supposed ‘secret life’ in Germany. (If your curiosity is saying WTH? PM me and I will explain.) And I’m doing things like this, little mini plot bunnies that have my imagination whirring.

Just a final two notes for you people who skip these things.

Arty’s not a sprite.

Second is READ THE BOOK ‘SKELLIG’ BY DAVID ALMOND! IT IS THE MOST AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL 200-ODD PAGE ANGEL IN PAPER! IF YOU LIKE THIS, YOU’LL LIKE SKELLIG. It inspired me to write this.

This is not a crossover. But I thieved some ideas from James Patterson and David Almond, I’ll admit.

Yaaaay! It worked! Woot!

    Ah, sorry about the italics, that was the AN from FF.Net, it won’t mean much to you.

  2. First of all, interesting title… is it supposed to be “hail” mispelled? Or am I interpreting it wrong?

    Some typos, but should be easily fixed. Nothing you don’t know. Don’t make me list them.

    Ah, I’m too lazy to read that book… but I have read Maximum Ride. Not that good, I must admit. The language was vary unveried (get that? It’s a pun… kinda) and the plot was really all over the place. Towards the end, it was way too sappy for my liking, so I put it down.

    Yesh, needs update. It’s short. How the heck did he get wings? Artemis was IC, though, taking in fact that he was just happy to fly. However, I thought in the books that he might’ve been afraid of heights. Maybe it’s just one fanfiction too many…

    Hael is the name of the angel of art, creativity, beauty, kindness.

    I wasn’t overly impresed with MR either, but Skellig is really beautiful. It’s about a fallen angel.

    You’ll just have to wait and see how Art got wings. Will be updated.

  4. What is this? I don’t get it. But… *Pauses dramatically* I dodn’t see any mistakes, so I guess that’s worth something.

  5. Still interested, still some mistakes. This chapter revealed a lot more, but I think the mother or father (or both) of Gabrielle are gonna pop up somehow. It’s an… interesting way of putting it, and a new explanation of why Artemis was named Artemis.

    One step ahead as always, we.

    Hmm, there shouldn’t be any mistakes, saying as it was spell checked… Let me see…

  7. Me like. That’s basically all. That, and WHY THE ***** IS THE COMMENT BOX LIKE THIS?!?!?

    I dunno, it got crazed up for some reason or other, but I think it looks pretty cool if you’re getting the same thing were the comments are down the toolbar 😉

    tar very much for the review 🙂 I am glad you like, but not cray, huh? Yeah, I know it seems a bit random at first, but i think this layout is better than it’s first draft so… Yeah…

    I’ve lost myself now 😉

  9. HAEL! 😀 I’ve been waiting for this. Nice re-write, Beckett! 😉 Beautiful magery. I like Gabrielle; I think she’s gonna be a nice addition to the plot. 🙂
    I can’t wait for an update! :p

    Hay CC! It’s on FF.Net too, I haven’t been on to check my comments I dunno if you’ve seen it there, whatever.

    I think this is kind of one of those Japaniese films, but words. It always seems a bit la-de-dah to me 😉

  11. 😉 Nice update, Beckett. 😀 I liked the little view into the past. I think that helped the story along quite nicely. :>

    Where is this… HOME? I’m excited about it, but more than a little scared that dear Arty is loosing his spot in Fowl Manor!
    \\\\MOVING VAN////
    XD Update, soon! :p

    YAY A COMMENT!

    I can’t tell you where it is, it’s a secret.

    It’s a bit like Hogwarts. You can’t find it unless you go. Butler couldn’t see it when he first got there, it had to be introduced to him. (I forgot to put that in, sorry)

    Don’t worry, we’ll have a snip of Fowl Manor somewhere in here. I plan to have a visit. Not as a major part of the plot, just to keep it slightly realistic. (Which I know is a bit out of perspective, seeing as people have wings in this but whatever)

    Update should be soon.

    It was really good, and I read the whole story without stopping. 🙂 I didn’t mind having the 4th chapter like that, when the story had been going on for ages, but if you go back to how the 1st 3 chaps were going then you should get rid of the last one. There were a few mistakes I noticed-
    Gabrielle smirked. “not exactly”-Should have a cap for not. Charge was said too many times in the second chapter.
    Artemis’ word-I’m pretty sure this should say world.
    Though there were little more etc, can be joined with the sentence before it.
    Re-read it again, in the first and last chap there were 2 questions without question marks, but I can’t find them now.
    Other then that, it was awesome. Artemis the angel. I like it. 🙂
    UPDATE OR FEAR MY WRATH!!!!

  14. Beckett Simpleton April 5th, 2011 at 2:04 pm 14

    Okay, I’m appalled at the mistakes, as it was written on Microsoft Word, but my Micro Word is a bit unreliable for grammar, so I shall heed your word and improve. I have a few more of the ‘little Arty’ chapter lying around on my harddrive, so if you like I could stick in a few more.

  15. I really like this, I mean really, really like this 😀 it’s cool and creative 🙂 i’ve only read the first chapter so i’ll keep reading but I like what I see so far! 😀

    (Told you I would review!)
    Lots of love and hugs, Kat xxx

    (Merged)

    Okay I just read the rest of the story, it’s amazing! I LOVE it! 😀 Please update! This is really good! 🙂 xxx

  16. Beckett Simpleton April 5th, 2011 at 6:51 pm 16

    *shocked face* EEESH! dooble poost!

    Yeah, whatever, I’ll go merge them. Like I care if I get a double post. More comments!

    Thanks for your kindly review 🙂 I have a few chapters waiting to be posted for this, so since you asked so nicely, I’ll stick one up now 🙂

    Indeed, you said you’d review. Nice to see you kept your promise 🙂

  17. Yay for the new chappy 😀 Thanks it’s so awesome! Preettyyyy pretttyyyy please post another one soon! 😀 xxx

  18. Beckett Simpleton April 6th, 2011 at 3:58 pm 18
