One day, while strolling through an empty, abandoned publishing house located on the fringes of Haven City(I borrowed Spark Suction Gloves from Dacia, from my fanfic Desastre, and mesmerised everyone I ran into into believing I was a jumbo pixie)I found a stack of manuscripts entitled The Artemis Fowl Guide to Life. Being the morbidly curious kind of person, I flipped it open and started reading it. I found it so interesting that I had to share it with other fans, and this was the best place to post such a thing. It was printed, but there was notes scrawled all over the margins.
In order to aid reading, I have transferred the whole thing, complete with notes, and compiled a list of font meanings below.
Normal font is the writer’s written words, while italics is the proof reader’s notes. Brackets is the writer’s response to the proof reader. Bolded fonts are other readers comments, for example, Foaly commenting. Words with dashes on either side are my comments, which are not in the original. To make it easier to read, those will be bolded and italic-ed.
Now, make yourself comfy. Have a drink beside you. Keep the lawyers under control. Read Artemis Fo- Hey! Who changed my script? Okay, put that away for now. Read it later, after you read the never before seen draft edition of The Artemis Fowl Guide to Life, complete with proofreader commentary!
