The face of the ex LEP commander became visible (not that one, that one. Root’s dead, remember?). Ark Sool grinned as the shocks of realization hit the trio. Holly’s face glowed red with rage.
“YOU!” Holly lunged before she was instantly repelled by the electric currents that bordered her prison. Artemis had felt his beads of sweat roll down his face. Even if you’re a genius doesn’t mean you don’t get tense when a Neutrino is aimed at your head.
“Me” Sool started evenly. “I was afraid you two would forget me after three years of absence” His eyes began to narrow. “especially after all you did to my reputation and discredited me” Holly looked bewildered.
“What did we have to do with it? You were just a lousy, wicked commander who deserved everything that was thrown to you” Sool fumed.
“Careful, Miss Short. When I’m angry, I tend to lose control, and who knows what would happen? My hand could easily slip” He gestured towards Artemis.”-right over the Neutrino’s trigger and we wouldn’t want that to happen, do we?” Holly wanted to tell Sool that he was an ignorant old pig, but she held her tongue for Artemis’s sake (which was quite difficult, considering Fowl’s betrayal and her own desire to unleash her poisonous tongue out at Sool).
Sool ranted on. “After you meddling fools had went to Taipei, I had it all plotted out” Sool’s eyes flared. “After you went to a remote location, I was going to blue rinse the warlock, along with everything around him. After you slipped to Hybras, the bio-bomb spun off course and bombed southwest Taipei! Needless to say, the LEP noticed when a whole city block was wiped out, and that meddling Foaly ran a check and I was caught after he found sufficient forensic evidence. Now I can finish what should have been done before dealing with that centaur. How does it feel to be at my mercy, Fowl?”
Artemis smirked. “Artemis Fowl does not leave himself without options”, and with that, he pushed a button concealed in his Armani tie. A back door suppressed in the wall and the silhouette blasted Sool with a Neutrino. The smoke cleared as Holly gasped.
Trouble Kelp walked in with a grin, blowing out the gas emission from the barrel. It was really satisfying, giving that hypocrite exactly what he deserved. Then, his eyes widened in surprise at the occupants in the cell. “Holly?”
“Ahem…” Jaki did not take kindly to being ignored.
“…A-and Klauss?” Jaki nodded indulgently. Trouble seemed very taken back. He’d expected Klauss to be seven hundred years older. Myths did not agree with reality.
“I’m glad you understood the initiative” Artemis shrugged. He had anticipated Trouble’s aptitude after all; Trouble was not elected LEP commander by the entire council for nothing. Artemis had planted Holly’s locator in the compartment and could activate it at will. Trouble redeemed himself.
“Fowl, let them go” Artemis remained unperturbed. “After all this plotting, you really think I would allow my efforts go down the drain?” He snorted “I think not” Trouble was about to retaliate, speaking his mind with his Neutrino, when Artemis snapped his fingers. Trouble froze for a moment, and collapsed to the ground in the state of unconsciousness. Butler’s massive outline appeared behind him, holding a dart rifle. Holly screamed in shock before realizing he was merely stunned. Jaki, however, remained static.
“What do you want, Artemis?” Jaki inquired. Artemis smirked. “Listening now, are we?” The elves nodded glumly. They had no other option. With Artemis Fowl’s schemes, the faster they were finished, the less people getting hurt.
“My request is simple. I understand you have extraordinary magic that surpasses the warlocks’. Consider yourself free if you agree to put a time stop over entire Europe” Holly and Jaki gasped. Both raised eyebrows.
“And what, if I may, would you need to freeze an entire continent?” Jaki tried to maintain his level of voice, but he was struggling. What Fowl proposed was unthinkable. Unforgivable. His fist was trembling in anger.
“It is none of your business where my intentions lie. It is my offer. I do not wish to make you with force” Artemis flashed his vampire smile. Jaki thought for a moment. On one hand, with a mind like Fowl’s, who knew what kind of damage he would achieve with such a mighty time stop, with a brain like his? On the other hand, he should never forsake others’ safety… and they can figure out a plan after the hostage stage. He mulled it over for seven long minutes.
“Very well…however, you shall keep your end of the bargain and may none else suffer from this scheme” Jaki nodded solemnly.
“Deal” Artemis clasped his hands together in anticipation. It was another bad sign for Holly, who remained forgotten. She tried to stop them, but she was repelled by the electric bars. Holly watched helplessly as Jaki was lead out of the cell. Artemis had left both of the cell’s occupants bound until everything was in place.
Jaki muttered some ancient Gnommish and a widespread blanket of magic spread from Fowl manor all the way to the brinks of the Black Sea. Perfect. Artemis checked his watch. It was frozen, and so was the rest of the world. However, he wasn’t about to let his guard down yet.
Artemis looked into Holly’s eyes before she realized what he was doing. Artemis’s voice resonated in bass tones.
You are to leave immediately. Do not leak to the LEP anything that has happened tonight. Do not attempt to follow me” Artemis paused for a brief moment. There. That should be it. Of course, even if you are a criminal mastermind, there’s always at least one important mistake.
Artemis grinned, satisfied. “Now, I do believe you have something to do on Christmas eve. Off you go”
Jaki left, musing to himself that he would not sit around to find out what Fowl was planning, but curiosity got the better of him. He decided to plant a bug on Artemis when his back was turned; unaware that Holly planted a camera during the confusion of Sool’s arrival. Jaki pulled something out, stared for a moment, and muttered perhaps he didn’t need to watch Fowl after all. Heck, he didn’t even have the right to interfere.
Holly stood, mesmerized and left Fowl manor for the operations booth underground. Artemis was left with Butler to execute the rest of the scheme. It was a historical moment, how wrong he turned out to be…

  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.
