A/N: This might seem a bit silly. This is based on a dream I had. It takes place after book 5. All of the e-mail addresses in this story are made up. None of them are real, as far as I know. Any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated! So RR&R (Read, Rate and Review)!

Chapter 1: Checking E-mail

      Artemis Fowl II was in his room, checking his e-mail. He had two of them in his inbox. One was from Holly. One was from Foaly. He first opened the one from Holly. It read:

 To: (Artemis Fowl II)

 From: lepshort@haven.un (Holly Short)

 Subject: It’s cold!

      I just wanted to drop you a line. It’s a alarmingly cold day here in Haven City. The temperature has dropped a full 20 degrees (fahrenheit, of course)! The flares are also less active, now. Sorry this is so short. I’ve just been assigned another mission. Apparently there’s someone in Iceland who is getting dangerously close to discovering us.

      Artemis hit the reply button. He typed:

 To: lepshort@haven.un (Holly Short)

 From: (Artemis Fowl II)

 Subject: Re: It’s cold!

      It’s quite cold at Fowl Manor, too. Me and my family are going to Germany to ski soon. Skiing is such an obscene sport of exreme difficulty. Good luck with your mission.

– –

      Then, Artemis opened Foaly’s e-mail. It read:

 To: (Artemis Fowl II)

 From: foalygenius@inventorcentral.un (Foaly)

 Subject: Holly!

      Holly left on a mission to Iceland two days ago. We lost contact with her yesterday! She was last heard from somewhere on Öræfajökull, the highest mountain in Iceland, also a volcano. It’s only erupted twice in recorded history: In 1362, and in 1727. A LepRetrieval squad has been sent to find her. I thought that you deserved to know. I will get back to you soon.

      Artemis was quiet. Then, he clicked the reply button.

 To: foalygenius@inventorcentral.un (Foaly)

 From: (Artemis Fowl II)

 Subject: Re: Holly!

      I’m on my way to Iceland!

  2. FOR SUM REASON IT DOESNT TAKE MY COMMENT! i wrote it already but its not showing up!

  3. but it took that.. I really like it and you must continue , but I have one question…. How did you get the a and the e to stick together?

  4. haha, a and e sticking together… nice!

  5. I saw it in the ” Golden Compass” too!

  6. How did I get the “a” and the “e” to stick together? I was doing a Wikipedia search for mountains in Iceland. When I saw Öræfajökull, I copied and pasted it onto the story panel! I’m glad you liked it!

  7. LOL- didn’t thik he’d like skiing! Not sure how you could get the “a” and “e” to stick together. Anyway I like the e-mail idea (instead of IM- I’ve seen loads of them now). The plot is also orginal so update soon!

  8. æ coolieo! I can’t wait for more but you probably should have put chppy 1&2 together
    æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ

    Hooray! I like it but not enough has changed for me to really criticize, rate,or compliment. Still here tho so I guess that means your story is good enough! I hope tho they go 2 Mt. Öræfajökull. soon!

  13. I really like it so far! Keep it up!

  14. mahi101 AF Fan January 16th, 2008 at 4:31 am 15

  16. Just read Chapter 2- quite short- but just as good as the first chapter!!

  17. WWHAAA! Nobody’s commenting on this story! How can I continue without my favorite readers *cough*Jelly*cough* commenting!? I will update after at least 3 comments. RR&R! 🙂

  18. why is it cold?!?!? and if you really did get that info from Wiki then you need to do a Bibliography at the end of this! please continue! I love this story! of and gauzuntight! I sure hope your virus doesn’t last long! comon ppl! we want MORE! comment!!

  19. You obviously did your research and I love that in a story. Keep it up!

  20. Jelly- Don’t worry, I will do bibliography at the end. Why is it cold? 😈 You’ll just have to wait and see…

    Olive- Yes, it took a LOT of research. All these places are real. Mt. Öræfajökull is real and I will add more REAL places later! I might even add a pic of Mt. Öræfajökull! 😉

    Thanks for reading! I will update soon! 😀

  21. It’s small, but I’ve


  22. I like it very much. It has a good layout and a great storyline. No grammar mistakes that I can see. But I think that this story is really going somewhere!

  23. mahi101 AF Fan January 19th, 2008 at 7:25 pm 25

    wow , its nice! I love it, The reason why they do æ its kind of old english , the way they used to write. I LOVE THE STORY , TELL US WHEN U UPDATE!

  24. ARTY'SELFFRIEND January 19th, 2008 at 8:54 pm 26

    I like it so far….. How in the world do you do the ae thingy?

  25. It was definitly a small update, but I still love where it’s going. Keep writing!

  26. Arty wants a hotel?Y? can’t he just sleep in a tent like a normal person?

  27. mahi101 AF Fan January 19th, 2008 at 10:40 pm 30

    lol… normal people sleep in tents! no, lots of people sleep in hotels! (I’m scared of bugs climbing on me while I’m Sleeping!)

  28. they don’t climb on you if you close the screen!

  29. mahi101 AF Fan January 19th, 2008 at 11:09 pm 32

    yeah….. but sleeping in the wild ,…. I always wanted to do that…. but then again…….I want to live in a place ( or sleep in a place ) WHERE THERE ARE NO BUGS AT ALL! (At least no bugs for another 5 million miles or so )

  30. impossible. there are little tiny bugs in everyones bed in their pillow and mattress they are so small they fit through the threads holding it together.

  31. mahi101 AF Fan January 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am 34


  32. æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ
    There is a new type of sheet that keeps them ou. I saw it in an add.

  33. mahi101 AF Fan January 20th, 2008 at 12:31 am 36

    I WANT THAT SHEET then , I’ll get it! YOU’LL SEE!

  34. There is a sheet that keeps bugs out!? Tell me about it! I might use it in my story! 😉

  35. OK, you see the other blackets have to large of holes that let the little bedbugs come through invest you, your clothes, and anything they come in contact with. so the people invented a sheet that you ca put over you mattress and pillows to keep them out, the threads are so tight, when you spill something on it it falls right off with no trace of it every being there, not even a wet spot!

  36. Sweet! They must be really expensive though. But nothing Artemis can’t afford! I’m deviding an idea of how to put that in my story right now! 😈

  37. mahi101 AF Fan January 20th, 2008 at 3:50 am 41

    whats it called ( the bedsheet? )

  38. I probably won’t use the anti-bug blankets until later. I might end up having to go camping. Because I’ve been doing some research, and there appear to be no hotels anywhere around Mt. Öræfajökull.

  39. mahi101 AF Fan January 20th, 2008 at 6:52 pm 43

    wow……………. poor arty….

  40. mahi101 AF Fan January 20th, 2008 at 8:55 pm 44

    luv the up8

  41. Mahi- I don’t remember the name if you go 2 google and type in bug risitent bedsheet u might find it.
    I luv the upd8 but just for future refrences: You spelled Myles wrong it is spelled with a “y” not an “i”
    æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ æ

  42. Are you sure? Let me check…

  43. You’re right! I’ve updated it now!

  44. great! thank you!

  45. mahi101 AF Fan January 21st, 2008 at 2:38 am 49

    bug risitent bedsheet …I’ll search it! UPD8 SOON PLLZZ

  46. How far into the future is this because Myles and Beckett sound older then 3.

  47. well they must be like 3 because in preschool you learn to read and one of them couldn’t read yet making that child either stupid or three. :mrgreen:

  48. I didn’t learn to read until Kindergarten! Myles and Beckett aren’t genii like Artemis. So they’re about 6 years old. :mrgreen: Oh! And if anyone sees me spell Myles M-I-L-E-S, please point it out. I keep forgetting it isn’t spelled like that! 🙄

  49. UPDATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

  50. mahi101 AF Fan January 22nd, 2008 at 10:15 pm 54

    GR8 UPDATE! , wait , I bet artemis will say”NO HOTEL?FINE THEN!I’ll get one built.”

  51. I thought that everyone learned to read in preschool!
    oh well good update! Maybe Arty will build a super-tent that is almost like a house!

  52. ARTY'SELFFRIEND January 22nd, 2008 at 10:51 pm 56

    *Giggle* I’ve slept in a tent B4 and it ain’t fun!!!!!!! PLZ CONTINUE SOON!!! Anti bug sheet!!! *Cracks up*

  53. tents are cold!!! when u go camping they wake you up at the crack of dawn and then you get outside and feel all hyper my little bro thought it would approprite if we drank Fanta the OJ kind to wake up with the sun so we rode around on our baikes for an hour slurping OJ while singing stupid songs waking everyone else up! lol oooh how stupid I feel now! 😆

  54. I have to go camping ina tent all the time. I remember once when I had to go camping when it was only 2 degrees out! That was a miserable night. Poor Arty…. It’s even colder in Iceland…

  55. mahi101 AF Fan January 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am 59

    omg… wow that kinda sounds like fun ! Not the freezing part.

  56. It is! except for the spiders and racoons around the tent banging on it for the chips on the inside1

  57. I live in bear country… It’s not uncommon to hear big heavy footsteps and to see hairy shadows on the tent wall. You might even hear low growling! It’s scary! 😥

  58. mahi101 AF Fan January 23rd, 2008 at 12:38 am 62

    BEARS AND SPIDERS?(falls out of chair.) okay , i dontmind bears , bears are okay , BUT I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE spiders! i hate all bugs!

  59. I live in the foothills of the smoky mountains. WE have everything here! Everything to make a camping trip heaven on some occasions. But on others, pure hell.

  60. mahi101 AF Fan January 23rd, 2008 at 12:47 am 64


  61. Isn’t it. Artemis has to sleep in really cold temperatures. I don’t know what kind of animals live in Iceland. But I will do some research on that! 🙂 I will update soon.

  62. mahi101 AF Fan January 23rd, 2008 at 1:29 am 66

    MAYBE POLAR bears.

  63. Do polar bears live in Iceland?

  64. mahi101 AF Fan January 23rd, 2008 at 3:21 am 68

    i dont noe………

  65. LOL I like Artemis’s little thought at the end of the chapter. Keep it up!

  66. I put that thought there just to give readers an idea of what Artemis thought about all this. AND it makes his condition seem worse, seeing it all condensed into one short paragraph! 😆

  67. mahi101 AF Fan January 23rd, 2008 at 9:57 pm 71

    lol….. again./.. poor arty.

  68. mahi101 AF Fan January 24th, 2008 at 11:12 pm 73

    LOL! wow , way to go out of thier way for one mesily adventure… shouldnt artemis expect this , if he knew the twins read the mail… or even if he suspects them reading it shouldnt he know that they might try this or is he too excited to think about anything else but saving holly’s life?

  69. *fourth comment dance*
    WOW! loving it! I KNOW polar bears don’t leave in Iceland (u should make it Greenland, its colder!) But I am positive wolves and Coyotes do! update soon!!!! :l

  70. Greenland is a ice desert. Hardly any people live there. Iceland is better.

  71. how was I 2 know? I don’t like resaerching!!

  72. Do you like the update?

  73. Good. *Sighs with relief* I was afraid that nobody would like it…

  74. LOL I love Myles and Beckett’s last line. Keep it up!

  75. mahi101 AF Fan January 27th, 2008 at 5:01 am 83

    lol , me too “that wasn’t suppose to happen” that was funny , I LUV IT! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

  76. I’m sorry I haven’t updated in a while. I’ve had a lot of things to do lately. 😥

  77. UPDATED!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry that I haven’t been on in a long time. But I’m back now!

    Jelly- Sorry, but I won’t be able to use those anti-bug blankets. I happened to overlook a hotel in the area, and now they won’t be going camping… 🙁

  78. That was a small update but still awesome!

  79. Thanks, Olive. Most of my updates are probably going to be small.

  80. mahi101 AF Fan February 10th, 2008 at 5:22 am 88

    Actully , they could have the anti-bug bed sheets for the hotel bed…. lol, I love the small update, lol, I hope they find Holly.

  81. They could be… But that would hardly be worth mentioning…

  82. UPDATE!!!! To Chapter 6!!!! :mrgreen:

  83. OHHHH a twist! =D

  84. What!? A twist!? Where!? 😯

  85. I love how much background info you had about the other family. You definitly didn’t leave any blank spaces in the description, which was completly awesome for a reader! Keep up the good work.

  86. Lol! For some reason this cracks me up!

    Also, in Re: It’s cold,
    It’s “My family and I”. Please fix. Otherwise, It’s really cool! Awsome!

  87. FYI: Iceland is very warm, it has no ice. It was named that way by the Romans so that other people would THINK that its cold and nobody would steel their precious land. GREENLAND is the cold one, as it was also named by the Romans so that people would go THERE instead of Iceland.

  88. If it’s wrong, BLAME MY S.S. TEACHER!

  89. mahi101 AF Fan February 23rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm 98

    LOL, no you’re right, Greenland is colder but Iceland isn’t the warmest place on earth either, it is also cold, but some parts of it is green.Yeah, they should really switch those names now right?

  90. mahi101 AF Fan February 24th, 2008 at 4:13 am 99

    OH YEAH, fogot to mention in my last comment, love the update!

  91. ARTY'SELFFRIEND February 24th, 2008 at 6:57 am 100

    *Crashes through the door* Ahhhhh!!!! BEAR!!! zomg!!!! I LOVVVVVVEDDDDDDD the UPDATE!!!!!!!

  92. Jelly, sick and bored February 24th, 2008 at 9:15 pm 101

    hmmm…. y rnt they looking 4 Holly instead of Neville? it doesn’t make enough sense for me 2 decide wut 2 rate it. oh well still like it!

  93. They’re looking for Neville because his dad was the one that broke into their hotel room. They suspect that Nevilles dad has something to do with the Holly Case. But his dad was killed in a plane accident 10 years ago, so they need to find Neville to question him about his father. Even though he was only about two when his dad died. Let me tell you now, Neville is going to be a main character in this book. I took a quiz that rates OCs and Neville was rated 26! That’s an almost perfect number! So I hope that answers some questions of yours. Tell me if you have any more!

  94. Oh! And another reason: They already looked for Holly and found no trace of her. But don’t worry, they’ll definitely come back for her later! 😉

    P.S. Celebrate! This is the 103rd comment for Artemis and the World of Snow! :mrgreen:

  95. mahi101 AF Fan March 1st, 2008 at 4:38 am 104

    lol wow, this story is a bog hiit and only with 6 chapters lol.Keep on writting I’m waiting.

  96. (small) UPDATE!!!!!!! 😀

  97. Okay, it was very small. It was still excellent though! You spelt done wrong though. Just thought you should know that.

  98. Whoops! You’re right! I’ve fixed that now. Thanks for pointing that out! 😉

  99. A long awaited UPDATE!!! 😉

  100. That was a very small update, but very sweet! 🙂

  101. Erm…how does this relate with the plot?

  102. Remember Neville? It was from his point of view. You’ll see how that affects Artemis in the next chapter.

  103. Symojen is right, Iceland has only ice on the northern tip, and it’s not so much. It’s really warm; sometimes reaching 100 degrees southern in the fall. That’s okay! 🙂 I really like the story so far! Please continue.

  104. Wait lemme’ search Iceland … no, no! This is really confusing but just listen. Europe told Rome that this penninsula (Iceland – wasn’t called Iceland back then; was a penninsula) was full of lush vegetation and stuff like that because they thought it was. So the Romans tried to get there and start a new civilization there. They ACTUALLY ended up in what is now greenland. Iceland was infact very warm back then, and Greenland was very cold. They became angry because Rome thought Europe had lied to them to get them out. So, they named greenland Greenland so that they could get rid of the Europeans! When they found Iceland on their way back, they named it Iceland so the Europeans wouldn’t go there. OVER TIME GREENLAND BECAME WARMER AND ICELAND BECAME COLDER.

  105. Oooh! Now I get it! So Europe made a mistake, Rome mistook it. They went to Greenland by accident and got mad, then tricked Europe to get revenge. See what revenge can do? It can get people confused about what actually happened and may just start a war.

  106. Sweet, Simetra16! I didn’t know that! 🙂

  107. WOW, I really like it! Has a unique storyline, and the title is nice as well! Update soon!

  108. mahi101 AF Fan March 22nd, 2008 at 10:24 pm 118

    LOVE UR UPDATE! I love this story its zawesum, also i DID SOME RESEARCH ON ICELAND! Did you know it was number 1 on the HDI ranking list…. that must mean its and awesum place to live in……

  109. Really good story!

  110. Sorry I haven’t been updating. I’ve been VERY VER VERY busy recently. That’s because I started my own forum: , and I’ve been REALLY busy with it.

  111. Ummm… Can u plz update?

  112. Keep going! Let someone freeze in Iceland! [As long it isn’t Artemis, Holly, Butler, Foaly, or Root] You know what? Let Grub freeze to death! Who needs him?

  113. computerzandbks4ever July 20th, 2008 at 9:04 pm 123

    (017350) how do you get a blue border?

  114. computerzandbks4ever- That’s just the color Editors get.

    Everyone else- I’ll try to update it right now.

  115. Update!!! Finally!!!

  116. The_Right_Girl September 17th, 2008 at 3:57 pm 126


  117. hitsugayatoushiro February 21st, 2009 at 5:41 pm 127


  118. This story probably isn’t going to be updated again. If I do choose to continue it, I will be rewriting the whole thing.

  119. Beckett Simple-toon September 20th, 2009 at 5:11 pm 129

    coolio. update please

  120. Hermione Fowl May 9th, 2010 at 7:50 am 130

    Oh, please please please continue it!! It’s really good! Don’t re-write it, I like it like this!! Maybe just change a few parts?? UPDATE OR FEAR MY WRATH!!!

  121. I like your writing style and I like the the plot. But your spelling and grammar aren’t exactly top-notch. Starting of with emails is cool. Some OOCness with Artemis, but Myles and Beckett are AWESOME.

    3/5 – Good
