Hypocrites, all of them.

I don’t know why I even bother, I can’t achieve anything. I’d say it was because I’m a girl, but look at Captain Holly Short, it’s disgusting. She’s the biggest hypocrite of them all.

They look at me and they see a bimbo, a blond, beautiful, spoiled idiot. I mean, if somebody is blond and beautiful then they have to be stupid, don’t they?


They use me, they use me for their videos, for their public campaigns, I’m their spokesperson, the face of the LEP, but when it comes time for a real mission, they won’t even listen!

They don’t even think about me. Do they know that I have broken Commander Root’s airspeed record four times? Do they even think about how I brought in thirty goblins in a week after the B’wa Kell rebellion? No, because I’m beautiful, and I am blond. The only thing I could be capable of is to sit there and look pretty while they all drool over me.


I’ve never received a promotion. Holly Short sits in her fancy office and looks down on me, all high and mighty. She thinks she is superior; she is a real woman who fights for the people. She looks down on me because I am pretty and frowns because I am stupid, if only they knew.

I received the highest grades in the LEP academy. I studied every night for months to get those scores! There’s a rumor going around that my scores were raised because I am a descendant of Frond. Holly even believes it.


They say they want equality, female rights. They hate the mud men for doing to everybody else what they do to me.

Every day I endure teasing. “Watch out for that pole blondie” they’ll say, or “Intelligence test, what’s one plus one? Oh, I’m sorry Lili, did I hurt your brain?” They could at least come up with some decent insults, those are just pathetic.  I endure sexual harassment from every single one of them. Wolf whistles, bad dumb blond jokes, anything and everything. I hate them!


A/N: Uh, I wrote this in around two minutes, it is just a little drabble. Please, please, please constructively critisize. I need all the help I can get!

  1. Hmmmm. Not bad, not bad at all. I like it

  2. Once again, I love the perspective… I never really thought about Frond in that way. Or at all. But I loved this.

    Constructive criticism… I don’t know. Perhaps you could make it clear earlier who it was? At first I thought it was Minerva. Once it started talking about the LEP I was clueless, until the part about Frond’s descendant.

    Same here. But I realised a bit sooner, as it was kinda obvious by the third paragraph.

  4. To be honest I always thought of her as a “dumb blonde”. It was good to see another point of view

  5. I like it it’s funny, and I like to see that there are other people in the world who know how it is to be underestimated

  6. PetiteBrunette March 27th, 2007 at 11:06 pm 6

    That was amazing Blackopal. It was really really good.I really liked it.

  7. minervagirl100 April 8th, 2007 at 8:02 pm 7

    Keep writing! It’s pretty good. 🙂

  8. HYPOCRYTES!!!!!!!

    I honestly feel that this poem (i see it as a free form poem) reaches out and grabs at all those people who are surrounded by hypocracy and are underestimted because of what they look like, act like, or talk about, everyone has their own form of genius, but most people are too blind to see it.

    I know that was mushy, but it just had to be said people.

    Isn’t blackopal an editor???

    Gasp! Triplepost! Please don’t it, thanks. ~WE

  9. Yes, she is. The editors here are: MMK (me), BlackOpal, Dreamlight, and drawingpup. MichaelM is the admin of Fangathering, though he doesn’t visit the archive often.

  10. I met MichaelM in the fangathering, he’s a nice guy.

    Wait, on the fangathering forum, MichaelM’s icon/avatar is of either a female, or a total emo, and his/her signature is a picture of a female (yes, no possibility of it being an emo guy.) so which gender, male or female?(I think that it’s male because you said that it was, but his/her gender icon on the forum says female, please help me!)

    Again, no doubleposts. ~WE

  11. Michael is male. His signature is of an actress he really likes, and I think he just likes the little joke in the avatar, it’s not meant to represent him or anything. If you look under his avatar, there’s a symbol telling gender.

    Anyway, this is really off-topic, let’s stick to reviewing the story (which I really liked, once again).

  12. Me too!

  13. r u blonde? is that why u wrote that? that was good.

  14. uhh u rock soooo much i am totally jealous lol xx 🙂

  15. This was a really good story!!! i never really thought about Frond as an actual person because she was always portrait so evilly!

  16. captain_artys_girlxx October 10th, 2007 at 7:34 am 16

    well i’m new here, but, hey its pretty good, you really see her point of view & u can see she dislikes holly as much as holly dislikes her. or at least i think they don’t like each other, lol. but its good. keep it up!
    ;D xoxox

  26. i have one question that doesn’t go with the story, what is the editor’s choice catagory? do the editors chose which ones go in it or what?

    Neways, i reawlly like the story. nice to see it from the prespective of a first person minor character.

  27. Yes, the Editor’s choose which ones go in.
    MMK chose this story to be an editor’s choice. We just mainly pick the ones we like and think are very good. Like at a book store when there are different choices specified by different people.
    Thanks for the review.

  28. Just a quick question for BlackOpal and MMK. How did you become Editors?

  29. I still think Lili was not very respected for a reason. She thinks Holly sits in a office looking down on her while she braves the dangers of every Fowl incident.If you look at Lili, if she got all those good achevements, there would be no doubt she’d be promoted by then, even by Root, who wasn’t a big supporter of womens’ rights.

  30. I don’t know, in the books Holly has a lot of trouble getting into the LEP because she’s a girl. Look at everything she did and Ark Sool still tried to stop her from being an officer.
    Then think of Lili. Holly is a tomboyish girl, much easier to accept into a male-oriented field. Lili’s gorgeous and loves to look pretty, while Holly can almost blend into the male population. Lili stands out, and not in a good way. You’d look at her and her make-uped face and never expect her to do anything worthwhile. The LEP is already prejudiced. I can’t see them allowing Lili to do anything.
    She did want to be a LEP officer.

  31. There aren’t many stories from Lili’s point of view, so I liked it a lot.

  32. That was a great story! Actually I read it a few months ago, but I didn’t comment. I figured out who it was early on. The detail s really good, and you almost make it like a poem! I ♥ it. 🙂

  33. Isn’t it weird that good editors choice stories always get lower rating than they deserve?


  35. mahi101 AF Fan February 2nd, 2008 at 1:12 am 35

    ♥ Well that’s a bit rude, This is great! It reminds me of a poem. I love it! ♥

  36. Lancedigger, you can’t just go around insulting people’s stories.
    It is against the rules.
    I don’t care if you hate it, but at least say why. And don’t use CAPS, it is the internet equivalent of shouting in someone’s ear.
    You have been warned. Do not comment like that anymore or you will be suspended.


    PS. Thanks guys. 😀

  37. ArtemisFowl III February 20th, 2008 at 11:17 pm 37

    Yeah, Lance Digger, it wasn’t so bad. I can say it wasn’t my favorite but I don’t go around saying (well in your case yelling) that I hate it.

    BlackOpal are you one of the editors?

    I’m not really even going to bother saying anything… ~WE 

  38. Yes, I am.
    And what don’t you like about it?
    (I like constructive criticism very much).

  39. ArtemisFowl III February 21st, 2008 at 10:19 pm 39

    I dunno. I’m not a big fan of poems and stuff like that I guess. I like Robert Frost and Shakespeare(sorry if I spelled that wrong) but thats about it.

    My brother read it a minute ago and said it wasn’t a poem. Is it? I think it is.

    Quite sure you’re not on the site anymore, but please don’t doublepost. ~WE

  40. its like a sort of…resentful poem. abstract poem! i found the word! i like it, but i thought that in the story itself, it said that she was useless in the field? maybe i sleep-read.

  41. It’s not really a poem, I guess it could be freeverse, but that’s not how I planned it. It’s just how you look at it, I guess.
    And when it said that Lili was useless in the field, it was sort of from Holly’s point of view.
    The narrator in the books isn’t omniscient. And I thought that if Lili wanted to be a LEP officer, she couldn’t be that bad.

    Thanks for the reviews. 😀

  42. ArtemisFowl III March 17th, 2008 at 12:23 am 42

    Hey BlackOpal…I may be being a tattletale but someone on the story(and i’m just taking a shot at the title)The next artemis fowl laid out in msn style has the same screen name as me.There is a slight difference but its just confusing! Thanks!

  43. Not to be personal, but I didn’y relly like it.

  44. That’s fine with me. 😀
    Just, if you could tell me why? That way I can improve.
    Dislike it all you want. 😉 Just if you’re going to review it, I wouldn’t mind knowing the reason.

  45. Oh. This is great, but I still see Lili Frond as a blonde airhead bimbo (sorry).

    I read the comments, and people seem to think this is a poem. I don’t know why. I, personally, would never ever see this as a poem in ten million years.

    The perspective is just right! If I ever become Frond (which I never will), I would feel like that too! But, my question is, why did you choose Frond? She’s sooo not easy to write about. She hardly ever gets a mention in the books! How did you get all these information about her? (Actually, I don’t really pay that much attention to the little details, so, this isn’t so surprising. Maybe that is why I miss out stuff) 🙂

    Is there any more of this stuff coming? I hope so!

    Helen 🙂

  46. Julissa Holly Fowl January 9th, 2009 at 2:45 am 46

    I like it a lot, for two reasons.
    The first is that it’s very well-written (duh! BlackOpal is one of the best fanfic authors I’ve ever known) and beliveable.
    The second reason is that I am in a slightly similar situation. I am looked down upon as ‘that unfriendly, quiet, nerdy, know-it-all bookworm’. I can sympathize with Lili because I know how she feels. I’m always called on, she’s always picked to do the broadcasts. She gets the best scores on tests and people think she cheated, I always get the best scores on tests and people think that I am a know-it-all.
    Sorry about the rant, but I wanted to make a point.

  47. ArtemisFowlfan January 9th, 2009 at 4:28 am 47

    I feel bad for her Ive heard of Lili Frond in a different fanfic before… Never thought
    anyone would do a story about her… cool! I
    dont know, you guys. I sort of like how it doesnt tell u who its about untill last couple of paragraphs. Its sort of cool.

  48. Wow… I never… considered it like that. Two minute drabble it may be, but it’s a good one! Glorious job there!

  49. Interesting…. I like it! Poor Lili Frond. She is just like my sister… blonde, abused, and thinks everybody is hypocritical and thinks she is dumb. Was that confusing? Anyways, 5/roses!
