Latest News


Welcome to the July edition of the Haven Herald! Yes, we really did mean monthly!

For those of you who are new or haven’t been around in a while, the Haven Herald is our monthly newsletter where we showcase the very best that FanGathering has to offer.

As a reminder, here’s what you can expect from the new Herald. Each month, we’re going to be giving you a rundown of the big news that’s happened in relation to Artemis Fowl, Eoin Colfer, and FanGathering in general. We’ll be giving you updates on popular threads, the Artemis Fowl Read-Along (come join!), and of course, the intrepid “monolith” that is the counting thread and its new secret goal. We’ll also be showcasing the talents of two FGers each month, as well as bringing you the results of our new official monthly poll. Keep an eye out for our pillar of the community award too, where we honour upstanding members of our FG community.

So, without further babbling, here we go! Welcome back, or glad you’ve stayed. This is the Haven Herald.

– The Site Team


Hello there, FGers past and present! It’s been a long, long, long time. The world is a strange place at the moment, and we hope everyone is doing as well as they can be.

Those of you who were FanGathering regulars will remember that, once upon a time, the Site Team used to send out a (mostly) monthly newsletter. The last edition was released in January of 2010 – a full decade ago! – and the forum in general has been relatively quiet for several years, now. But thanks to a few loyal FGers (more on that, later!), the past few months have seen FG looking like a community again. And with the FG Rennaisance, Revival, or whatever else you’d like to call it, the Site Team is happy to say that the Haven Herald is back in action.

Here’s what you can expect from the new Herald. Each month, we’re going to be giving you a rundown of the big news that’s happened in relation to Artemis Fowl, Eoin Colfer, and FanGathering in general. This month’s FG recap will look a little bit different, but in the future, we’ll be giving you updates on popular threads, the Artemis Fowl Read-Along (come join!), and of course, the intrepid “monolith” that is the counting thread and its new secret goal. We’ll also be showcasing the talents of two FGers each month, as well as bringing you the results of our new official monthly poll.

There is one more new feature that we are extra excited to bring you – but we’ll let you read on and find out what it is.

So, without further babbling, here we go! Welcome back, or glad you’ve stayed. This is the Haven Herald.

Friday, Disney officials announced that their upcoming Artemis Fowl adaptation will skip the theaters in favor of a release on their streaming platform, Disney Plus. This decision comes as many theaters are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and many other Disney films slated for theatrical release in the coming months have been postponed.

After a nearly ten-year series of delays with which we’re sure Fowl fans are all too familiar, the movie was finally slated to release in theaters on May 29 of this year. The most recent trailer, released on March 2, received a mixed reaction from longtime fans.

What do you think of this decision? Will you be watching on Disney Plus? Let us know in the comments section, or on our chat forum!


Disney have just dropped the first teaser trailer for the Artemis Fowl movie. Coming August 2019!

Excited? We’ve been talking for this about years, so I hope so!

What are your thoughts? How’s it shape up compared to your imagination? Comment below or join the chat on our forums.


The long-awaited Artemis Fowl movie has hit another lull, with no solid news in a long time. So to spur things on a bit, Artemis Fowl Confidential have put together an online petition to show Disney how badly we want this movie.

And it has over 5000 signatures already! Add yours to the list too!

Sign the petition


Believe it or not, the Artemis Fowl movie is finally going to be made! It will merge the first 2 books into one film, and be developed by Disney alongside Harvey Weinstein (The same man who pushed to buy the film rights all those years ago when these movie conversations first kicked off, clearly a fan!).

The screenplay will be written by Michael Goldenberg (who was behind Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, so that’s a promising sign!), and Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal will be involved in the production team.

Eoin spoke to the Irish Independent just after the announcement, and dropped in his vote for the actress to play Holly:

“That would be the dream, to have it made in Ireland, with Irish actors in it,” the best-selling author told the Irish Independent.

Saoirse Ronan would be the dream cast for Holly (one of the main characters).”

Officially, Eoin has no direct involvement, and but the Independent says that he and Weinstein have been close and will continue to be so throughout the production. That said, Eoin seems delighted with the team behind the film:

“They are serious guys, and even their names involved in something can give it weight and a gravitas,” said Colfer.

“The writer wrote one of my favourite movies, ‘Contact’, but he also wrote one of the Harry Potter’s, so he’s a guy that knows how to do science fiction and kids’ stuff.”

This is just the starting announcement, so the movie is still a long, long way off. But I think that after all these years of waiting, we are finally justified in getting excited.

Now, your turn. Who do you want to see involved?? Get involved in all the movie discussions on our forums!

More links to various announcements:


The BBC have published a great interview with Eoin Colfer on their site. It talks about the end of the series, what’s next for Eoin, and some general questions for Eoin himself, including this gem:

What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?

I once summoned a hotel manager to my room to demand he find the source of the weird buzzing noise. After 30 minutes of searching we found that the noise was coming from my electric toothbrush which had somehow gotten switched on it my suitcase.

Thanks to ILoveFowl (Check out her Fowl Manor Tumblr), we’ve found out that Eoin Colfer has released a quick video on his upcoming (And final) Artemis Fowl book, The Last Guardian.

Check it out to hear more on the plot for this one.

It’s coming this Summer, I hope you’re excited!


Well, another year has passed, and another set of board awards has run its course. We’d like to thank everyone for their votes, nominations, and every bit of help you may have put into this project to get it on its way.

And now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for (or some of us may have skipped to)…

appellations: plural of ap·pel·la·tion (Noun)

  1. A name or title.
  2. The action of giving a name to a person or thing.

Why, you ask, are we beginning with a word that we have to define for most people to understand? The answer is simple. Writers, Fangirls, and ghosts alike: the AF Fanfiction editors are proud to present to you a new writing challenge, centered around this word (or its meaning, more specifically). Your challenge is to create four songfictions based on or starring four different Artemis Fowl characters and the meanings of their names.

The Rules and Requirements:

  1. Your songfictions must be at least five hundred words each.
  2. All submissions must adhere to the archive rules. This includes spelling and grammar.
  3. They must feature one character from the book per each songfiction.
  4. All four songfictions must be under one post, to make it easier for our judges to locate them.
  5. Your entries must be emailed by midnight EDT on August thirty-first to the Editors’ designated email: fangatheringfiction@gmail.com.
  6. The finished product must be categorized as a ‘Challenge Entry’.
  7. The entries must be posted in our Fanfiction Gallery.
  8. You may not ask any other member for help, or help another participating member, have anyone beta your songfictions, or give any constructive criticism.

Winner receives the honor to have their entry known as an Editor’s choice fanfiction, and will be placed in the Featured Stories page for all to read in the future. Our judges will be Artificial Asian and FowlStar.

Good luck! We look forward to reading your entries. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the editor team through email or PM us.
