What if Holly had to babysit Myles and Beckett?

What if Myles and Beckett were just as clever as Artemis?

What if?
Disclaimer: I don’t own Artemis Fowl or any of the characters.

Myles Fowl woke up around 7 a.m.

That’s odd, thought the young toddler. I don’t normally sleep this late. He sat up and looked over at his twin brother’s bed only to see that Beckett was still asleep and snoring.

“Simple-Toon”  Myles whispered. He got up and went over to Beckett’s bed, “WAKE UP BECKETT!” he yelled. Beckett didn’t even stir. Myles decided to give up after about five minutes of bugging him. He went out into the entry hall and saw that his dad was standing by the door with his luggage next to him,giving his mom a kiss.

“Are you going somewhere Daddy?” asked Myles.

“Yes” Artemis Fowl I, said. “I will be back in about a week. Will you take care of Becket for me while I’m gone?”

“Okay I can do that,” Myles said proudly.

“That’s my boy,” said Mr. Fowl; giving his son a hug.

After that he went outside and Myles ran to the upstairs window to watch as his Dad’s car pulled away out of the driveway.

Beckett woke up around 10 a.m. and was upset that his father had left without saying goodbye to him. However that soon passed when his mom got a call from Holly. Though he didn’t know what the call was about, he did know it had something to do with his older brother, Artemis.  His mom spent the next few hours packing while Butler called every babysitter that he knew of, but unfortunately they were all busy. Then at around 5 p.m. the door bell rang.

“I’ll get it!” Myles yelled.

“No! I will!” Beckett hollered as he followed his twin to the door. They were running down the stairs now, but by the time they got to the door Butler had already opened it. Standing in the doorway was a girl who looked to be about seven or eight year old with red hair and pointed ears. “HOLLY!” the twins yelled as they ran to give her a hug.

After the twins had stopped hugging her Butler led her to the den where Angeline Fowl was sitting in a chair  reading. She was dressed in comfortable travel clothes, with her dark hair put up in what looked to be a simple braided bun.

“Hello, Holly,” Mrs. Fowl said.

“Hello Angeli-Mrs. Fowl. It’s good to see you again.”

“Holly dear, may I ask you a question?”

“Yes” Holly responded uncertainly, not sure what was going on.

“Did you bring anyone with you?”

“Yes,” Holly repeated, her uncertainty at what this was leading to growing.
“Good, then they can take Butler and I to bring my Arty home,” Angeline said.

“But, Mrs. Fowl, Corporal Grub and I are going to take both you and Butler with us to bring Artemis home,” Holly told her.

“Oh, but I was really hoping you might want to stay here and babysit the twins for me. You see, none of my other sitters can make it. And without someone to look after the twins, I won’t be able to go get my poor Arty,” Mrs. Fowl said sounding sad and depressed. Holly frowned, she realized it was important for Mrs. Fowl to be there when they got Artemis, but she wanted to go to. And spending the time babysitting instead was not exactly a thrilling prospect for her. “Please, Holly, for me, as a personal favor?”

“Okay, Mrs. Fowl, I’ll take care of the twins for you.” Holly said, though she was worried about what she was getting herself into.

. . . . . . . . . . . . .Holly, Myles, Beckett. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Around 5:30 p.m. Mrs. Fowl and Butler were almost ready to leave. Butler had already headed out to the car, and Mrs. Fowl was on her way as well. “You two be good for Holly okay?” Said Mrs Fowl as she gave her youngest sons each a hug.

“We will,” said Beckett.

“Why would we be mean to her? We love Holly,” added Myles.

“Okay, I love you both,” Mrs. Fowl said, turning towards the door to leave.”Now remember, I’ll back the day after tomorrow and I’ll have Artemis with me then.”

“Okay,” said the twins.

As Mrs. Fowl started to walk out the door she heard,”Wait!” Mrs. Fowl turned back around to see Beckett, “Did you remember your tooth brush?” He asked her.

“And your hair brush,” Myles added.

“Yes I remember both of those, but like I said, I will be back the day after tomorrow and I don’t need to take a lot of things with me.”

“Okay” the twins said again.

“One more thing,” Miles said.”Why are you letting a LEP recon/elf watch us?”

“How do you know about the LEP?” Holly asked the twins, stunned that they knew.

“Simple. We read about it,” said Beckett.

“On Artemis’s computer,” added Myles.

“He’s got a lot of stuff on there,” Beckett said.

“Stuff about you,” Myles chimed in.

“Such as?” Holly asked, wondering what Artemis could possibly have about her on his computer.

“Like how pretty you are and a bunch of stuff like that” Myles said.

“But there is some stuff about the LEP too,” Beckett finished.

Mrs. Fowl told the boys that Artemis I, And Artemis II, and the three of them were all going to have a long talk the next week; but that for now she needed to go and bring Artemis home.

After Mrs. Fowl’s car had pulled away from the drive way Holly turned to face the twins. Holly looked the twins in the eyes and said, “Okay you two, can you show me how to look at these files on Artemis’s computer?”

“Sure” Beckett said, grinning. He grabbed her hand and the three of them headed up to Artemis’s room.

    1st comment other then teh author!! XD *1ST COMMENT SPAZ* XD lol. i like it. you should update :3

    ih yeah and its “simple-toon” not simple-tone but ish funny x3.

    Hiya! I’m here, invading your comment, to request that you refrain from doubleposting. Grazi, mon ami! ~WE

  3. OH. EM. GEE. I’m so sorry for commenting so late! ACH *guilty conscience*. Anyway, some overall advice is to neaten up the format. Little things like grammar, capitalization, spelling, and punctuation really do help a fic.

    CAPS: Capitalize names (last names too), the first word of a sentence (this also counts when someone begins speaking), and a bunch of other stuff I will get into in the rest of mah comment…

    Becket = Beckett
    Mrs — add a period after it. Weird, right? So it’d be Mrs. Fowl.
    “I” is capitalized.

    Start a new line each time someone different speaks. Ex:

    “Good morning, class,” the teacher said.
    “Good morning, Mrs. Potato,” the children responded.
    “Today we are working on adding fractions.”
    “I don’t like adding fractions,” Bob complained.

    Etc. Tags, the thingies like “Bob complained, he said, she said, they exclaimed, Mary groaned”, etc., aren’t capitalized. I’m glad you did that. However, there is some sort of punctuation within the quotation marks before it ends, whether it be a comma, an exclamation mark, a question mark, or an elipse (…). Also, a sentence usually only has one subject and one predicate unless it is a compound sentence/has a semicolon/uses a conjunction/all that grammatical junk. So, here’s a passage from your fic:

    “oh i thought you might want to stay here and babysit for me none of my other sitters can make it” said Angeline, holly frowned, “Please Holly for me” ” okay Mrs fowl i will take care of the twins For you”.

    If you follow my instructions, it’ll turn out as something like this:

    “Oh, I thought you might want to stay here and babysit for me. None of my other sitters can make it,” said Angeline. Holly frowned. “Please, Holly, for me?”
    “Okay, Mrs. Fowl, I will take care of the twins for you.”

    There’s general grammar, too, but I don’t think I can teach you all that in a review. Other stuff: plural is with an “s”, ownership is with an apostrophe+s. Then, if more than one thing owns something, it’s s+apostrophe.

    Cat’s car (one cat owns a car)
    Cats (more than one cat)
    Cats’ car (more than one cat owns the same car)

    I know it’s a lot to take it, but try it bit by bit. It’ll make it a lot easier.

    Comments on actual plotline: Truth be told, I’ve never seen a Holly-takes-care-of-twins fic before. Seems interesting; I’d like to see how she deals with them! In other words…
