Artemis’s security may have been compromised, but LEP camera upgrades still hadn’t affected his Bulldog Messenger: a program he designed himself to alert to trespassing hackers and impossible to detect. Artemis opened it and his heart pummeled to the soles of his feet. O.P. had been reading his email… that paranoid centaur, no less. Artemis went red with embarrassment. If Foaly had read his sent emails, which he would certainly would, considering this was not the first time he decided to stick his nose where it didn’t belong. He had underestimated the influence his meddling would have on his PC defenses. The LEP would know of his motive, plan, and personal stuff he’d prefer to keep hidden.
He sighed, and started to grin. There was no need to be so cynical. After all, they don’t know the plan and they will be too late to stop it…
Artemis was too arrogant to realize LEP technology had improved greatly since his disappearance. When section eight fused with the LEP, so did its budget for Foaly to invent with. Trouble had also taken the trouble to rebuild LEPretrieval One (no pun intended).
The improvements were now being paid off. Foaly’s newly patented gravity shields were a wonder to behold for many podsick officers, and up-to-the-minute pods could hold up to ten instead of sending in fairies one by one on separate magma flares, which benefited the LEPretrieval greatly for speed. Trouble thought of Holly, trapped in Fowl Manor as he rode the hotshots, but he also was thinking about the mud boy. Oh, how they were so alike, which made it all the more difficult. Trouble was no stranger to loss, as his dead sister came to him as a huge blow.
Jaki started poking his head through the fireplace. So this was Fowl Manor. He was just chucking over the elf ornaments when he noticed little rotating heads following him. Hah. Amateur mud men. Jaki was shielded and they could never see him. How very wrong he was.
Artemis had bought the LEP cameras from eBay for a reason. They came with anti-shield filters that even demigods couldn’t defend against.
Back at the study, Artemis’s eyelids began to droop, if it was not for the fact that a rather shrimpy man just appeared out of the fireplace. Artemis grinned. It was time to put the plan in action.
Jaki may have been a demigod, but he still possessed fairy powers from his ancestors. His fairy intuition was on to this place like cops to footprints. He whipped around to the staircase just to find the presence of an adolescent boy with bright blue eyes and pale vampire skin. Jaki paused again even though he was sure that the youth would not be able to see through his shield. His fairy sense was beating through his skull like hornets. Jaki had not known that Artemis had modified the LEP helmets’ anti-shield filter to accommodate his hazel eye.
Artemis approached the fireplace, his features remaining static. Jaki could hear the blood pounding in his brain. Relax. He can’t see you, you’re perfectly safe… Again, he was not so sure. He had heard reports about this Fowl character, and they weren’t exactly adorned with flower petals. He backed up cautiously, although he didn’t know it, right where Artemis wanted him. The tinsel that lined the perimeter that Jaki had assumed was only for decoration glowed with energy.
Artemis smirked. The LEP’s warlock magic files had granted him exceptional studies in the course of magic after he had hacked them. When will Foaly learn that he shouldn’t leave the LEP’s toys lying around when Artemis Fowl was on the loose? It had been a simple matter for him to master magic in half the time it took ordinary warlock needed to master, when you’re a genius like him anyway.
The sealing spell had been activated when Jaki had stepped into its perimeters. The tinsel had only acted as a medium for the magic to flow through. The magic circle tightened against Jaki.
Butler, who was atop the banisters, fired a tranquiller dart. Jaki slumped to the floor. Before he lost consciousness, however, he had spared a glance at the arguing giant and youth before him.
Butler raised his voice (something he rarely did at his principal). “Artemis, I’m glad that this heist wasn’t for gold, but we promised each other we’d limit each other to more tasteful enterprises.” Artemis looked guilty, even for himself. “Butler, I know this isn’t exactly something you approve of, but this is necessary for-”
Butler’s eyes narrowed. “For what?” Butler inquired but flinched as Artemis shot him a icy glare which said it was better not to ask. Butler had forgotten over the course of three years that it was futile to dissect a mind like Artemis’s. He would only reveal the plan when he thought was the time. Butler grudgingly admitted (in his mind) that when Artemis Fowl thought the time was right, it generally was.
Out of the millennia of mud men and fairies alike, no one had even managed to even catch a glimpse of the elusive, yet this kid cornered him like a rat in a trap.

  1. I’m already on the third chapter, so if I can get at least 20 requests to post the second chapter, I will do so. The second is mainly about when the LEP (and Fowl) takes action. 😀

  2. i really liked it! post the next chapter!

  3. Interesting. It seems to me that Artemis is a bit OOC for a post TLC story- he’s grown more moral since the demon incident. And the plot seems rather… unlikely, to say the least.

    That aside, it looks like it’ll be good and when/if ever you post the rest I’ll be sure to read.

  4. What’s OCC? And also, to say the truth, exploiting Klauss wasn’t his true objective. That’s a secret. There is no way Artemis would devote his time in Santa Claus. San’s decendents had certain powere, and I forgot to mention that. He is “probably” going to try to exploit them. There is more deeper meaning than just extended knowledge of the fairy race.

  5. Oh, and he’s supposed to be more morale after the Opal Deception.

  6. […] An Artemis Fowl ChristmasBy Star JininHe removed the book cover of a Webster dictionary and pulled out a picture of Holly, fresh and content from her daily Recon duties. He sighed. Sorry, Holly. I know you would never approve of my planned actions, but… Artemis Fowl shook …Artemis Fowl FanFiction – http://artemisfowl.fangathering.com/fanfiction […]

  7. OOC stands for out of character: meaning that Artemis seemed to be acting unlike himself. But given what you’ve said above, I suppose I’ll have to take back what I said and reserve judgement until I read more (which, by the way, is why I haven’t rated- I like to rate after reading a few chapters and getting a feel for the story).

  8. I like it! very creative and to say the least a very good story taking in consideration that this is your first! 😀

  9. I suppose, seeing from the lack of comments, I should wait longer, but judging from the ratings, I will load up the second chapter. It’s filled with more action. Expect it after I finish my homework 😉

  10. It is not lack of comments because I think ppl in America r sleeping.

  11. http://artemisfowl.fangathering.com/fanfiction/help/how-to-write-a-story
    Try going there to figure out how to add new chapters.
    What I do is just post my next chapter in the same box, then I go an place my cursor in between the two chapters and hit the chapter button.
    Hope that helps!
    Oh, and I added on your other chapter for you.

  12. OHH I’m hooked I have a guess as to whats going on so please add chapter 3 so I can see if I’m right. I love the way you have expanded on the use of Artemis’ magic that he stole in The lost Colony, great idea.

  13. yes die sool

  14. Thanks, BlackOpal! Sorry guys, chapter 3 is taking me a little too long, but it introduces more charachters and lays on the foundation for the approaching climax. It will probably be the best one so far

  15. Oh, I really like this story now! It has a good plot, and you’re a talented writer. I’ll be watching for updates. 🙂

  16. i am sorry I didn’t comment earlier but I read this as soon as I got on and LOVED IT!!!!! I can’t WAIT for more! 😀

  17. Sorry, there was a repitition of the second chapter. It’s fixed now. Also, for you Mulch lovers out there, don’t worry. He’s going to be in it, just later.

  18. mahi101 AF Fan December 13th, 2007 at 4:11 am 18

    loved it!

  19. I have noticed lately that the ratings have dropped. I am not concerned for the popularity of this fanfic,but concerned on why. So far, mahi101 AF Fan remains the only one to even comment on this fanfic. If anyone could spare a few seconds to give feedback, it would be greatly appreciated.

  20. Star, You need to relax. lots of people are reading your story. sometimes though it just isn’t really necessary to comment if things haven’t changed. you story has gone through a few changes. People have commented. also this is your first story. First stories don’t always get a lot of comments. idk y that happens but it does. It happened to V,Kgerrad,me, HS9, and SOOO many other ppl I can’t think of right now. also it IS pretty much Christmas time so I am guessing ppl r either spending time with family or working on their own stories.

  21. Jelly’s right. There’s lots of new stories, and not lots of time for most people to read them. Not to mention that there aren’t THAT many people who visit the archive in the first place, though it is growing. Be patient. I know it’s nice to get instant feedback when you update, but it rarely happens.

    I just read chapters 3 and 4. They’re good, but not as… polished, I think is the word, as the first two. I think you may be rushing to update, and it shows. There’s nothing specific I can point out, but sometimes the phrasing or dialogue is rather awkward.

  22. mahi101 AF Fan December 16th, 2007 at 9:03 pm 22

    hmm.. Well , Ya know wut happens somtimes is that you have a great idea and when you ut it diown od papaer youn dont get everythingin so its not as good , so always take your time , but ofcourse , I liked the update!

  23. Ohh… yeah…sometimes, I get embarrassed and awkward at what I wrote and refuse to even look at it. Thanks guys! I guess I was getting a little worried about the deadline. I’ll polish it up after everything’s in place, and remember, I am still needing comment contributations (yeah, I’m really insecure)

  24. Okay, and I have a faint idea what’s so awkward, but could everyone voice it so I can be sure? Please just tell me what places need a remake. 🙂 The changes may or may not be made until I am finished and have time.

  25. Okely Dokely

  26. Please someone point out the awkward parts? I can’t see them myself, and as they say, the spectator sees the chess board better than the players. I’m blind as a bat when it comes to my own mistakes

  27. idk wut they r tking bout. i don’t c ne mistakes.

  28. […] Check it out! While looking through the blogosphere we stumbled on an interesting post today.Here’s a quick excerptHumans thought fairies didn’t exist either, and look at all the gold that turned out just from one measly trip to Ho Chi Minh and a night of plotting. It’s worth a shot.” Artemis proceeded wearing out his fingers on the gel keyboard. … […]

  29. Ummm… I don’t get what you’re saying Jelly.ARGGHHH!! NOOOO!!! THERE’S ONLY ONE DAY LEFT!?!? ARGHHH!!! *slaps keyboard*

  30. Congratulations! I just heard about you winning the story! 🙂

  31. 1crazyhollyfan January 2nd, 2008 at 3:46 am 31

    That is so wonderful! You really deserved the Christmas story prize. Definately a five out of five!

  32. I loved how you quated from the first book. The conversation held between foaly and Atemis while broadcasting on revolving freqencies was exactly the same as the one you put in this story. If any of you care to checks this it can be found in chpt.9 ace in the hole Pg.241. And Know i’m not looking at the book or anything that has it recorded.I’m a freak i know but i find certain things worth retaining. I swear on Commander Roots Grave. By the way congrats on winning.

  33. sorry i spelled quoated wrong spelling is not one of the things i find worth retaining.

  34. ok so my retentchen was a little off but most of it is what was said in that conversation i mentchend earleir but yah really good fic

  35. Great, post the next chapter!
    Also, Artemis doesn’t use PCs, he uses powerbooks, macbooks, and imacs (apple computers). Great job!

  36. I liked your story, but I have a question. After Butler defeats LEPRetrieval one, how does Trouble flt through the window? Butler knocked him out didn’t he?

  37. Yeah well, Trouble’s tough and Holly must have been some added motivation. I will post the whole thing now (I am so insecure about plagerism)

    P.S. I love Trouble!!! 😀

  38. I couldn’t even tell this is your first story. I loved it!

  39. I said I didn’t see any mistakes in your writing. no awkward parts or anything! I read this story before and enjoyed it very much! I think about 3/5 would be just! because that is like a really high percentage, because I guess there were some quirky parts but overall as a story it was pretty good! 😀 I hope you right more!

  40. Nope. AAFC is finished. I’m currently working on Blood lily, though. If you’d like to read it.

  41. Man, this stori’s awsum!!! I still don’t kno why Atry went bad again though

    I mean it’s cool and stuff, but I don’t kno why Artemis is tryin 2 kidnap San D. Klauss
    Sorry Im talkin 2 much, but one last thing.

    I saw in chapter 5 why Artenis is OOC. ok, that should be it. I’m not tryin 2 critisize u, I just didn’t understand some parts.

  42. Um…Artemis’s motives are clearly stated in the last chapter. And he performed the kidnapping because he needed a big enough time stop that not even the LEP can give him.

    No offense, but wow. You sure are like Foaly. You posted 7 comments in a row!

  43. I have only read two chapters so far but the story is excellent. You have the prose of the original writer of the series and I am going to enjoy the rest of the story.

  44. I finished reading the whole story and I have to say it was well done. The first couple of chapters really set the plot for the last chapter. It appears you knew what the ending was going to be before you started the first chapter. Nice ending.
    I really enjoyed the story. Keep writing.

  45. lol nice story even though i didnt finish, i recommended the book artemis fowl to this guy in my class cuz we’re doing a book report .i just started the series and im almost done! hope you write more stories cause im probably gonna enjoy your story by the sound of these comments.

  54. Billy-Bumbler March 5th, 2009 at 5:17 am 54

    This is one of the best Christmas stories I have read in a long time 5/5!

  55. RandomReaderGuy May 27th, 2009 at 2:33 pm 55

    Wow. That was one good story! At first Arty seems really OOC but the rest of the story went smoothly. Arty’s motive is quite touching.But the Ark Sool thing is so random.And you’re contradicting TLC’s ending having Mulch living in Vegas. He’s continuing the PI firm, remember?
    but other than that the story is AWESOME!
    4.98/5!

  56. Awww… Arty… that was soooooo sweet of you…..
    I would try to do that if my cousin had cancer or something. I really would at least I would try…. really I would…
    that was kinda sad though. but magnificient 😀

  57. hitsugayatoushiro June 9th, 2009 at 5:11 pm 57

    i kno wat u mean it was gr8

  58. this story is really fantastic!!you’re a very good writer,man! but who is livian?is she a cousin of artemis?

  59. Star Jihn like Jelly said, you don’t usually get feedback as soon as you post, when I do story I have to wait a day, except for my most devoted followers, perfect few mistakes throughout the whole story
    5/S

  60. It was pretty good. It took me about 40 mins. to read the whole thing, and that’s saying something since I read most books in just over 2 hours. I only found a few mistakes throughout the whole story… HI!

  61. That was awesome Star Jinin! I really enjoyed it! I hope you write more stories!

  62. Okay your story is really good but one thing that really bothered me was that Artemis’ password was his birthday. I think that is really obvious, and a little too obvious for him because everybody uses thier birthday. That is the only con crit I have because it’s the only thing that actually bothered me. Pretty good spelling and punctuation sooo… Sil out.

  63. Totally agree with them, this is awesome.
