Title: Playing
Pairing: Obsession!Opal/Artemis
Status: Complete

Type: Two-shot
Warnings: Creepy and a weird, abrupt ending.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Artemis Fowl, anything associated to it, or the hand-game. I don’t know who owns the hand-game, but my tía taught it to me, so I guess she’s responsible for this absolute crud.
A/N: I wanted to play this recently, but no one will play with me 🙁 But still, I hope this is okay. Also, this is a two-shot. Be overjoyed.


“Can I play, too?” She asks the group of boys, all her cousins. It’s a family event, and everyone is there. The boys are playing a game where you kick the ball through a net to score points. The trick is, you can’t use your hands and you’re not supposed to let it touch the ground. They were cheating, though, and allowed one bounce per pass.
“No!” One screams, head butting the soft ball through a hoop.
“Why not?” She pouts, and swings her heel slightly, making her little-girl tiered dress subtly wave.
“Because you’re a girl!” Another shouts.
The first boy laughed, “Yeah, and girls aren’t any good at sports!”
More laughter.
“Please? I want to try . . .” She’s the youngest, only at the developmental stage of a three-year-old human, and no one knows how smart she is. No one knows this will haunt her for years.
The oldest boy, an older teenager, says, rather calmly: “You must be stupid, little cousin. Girls don’t play boy’s games. You’d never keep up; we’d probably hurt you. Play it safe, no challenges and go play with the other girls.”
She tears up. “I can keep up! I can! Let me play, please? I can take ‘it’. You won’t hurt me. Please . . . I just want to try.”
He frowns. “No, stop.” He scoops her up, and the other boys start playing again as he walks away. “Okay, stop crying. This is why you can’t play; we’ll only make you cry. Now, I don’t want you to get hurt, so go play with the other girls.”
She sniffles and shakes her head. “I want to play with you guys. This game looks like fun.”
He sets her down by the girls. “I said no. You’re too little, and you’ll cry. Maybe when you’re bigger.”
She sniffled and sat down, too stubborn to look at the girls, nonetheless play house with them. There was no fun, no challenge. She took “bigger” to mean “better”; like how it was “better” when Daddy had “bigger” profits. She waited, and waited until she was better.

  1. OMG That was so amazingly wonderously awesome. I mean your awesomeness preceeds you. I think I’m starting to like opal shippings, there’s just so many possibilities to play around with. You’ve inspired me to go out and write an opal ship fic.

    Your awesomeness almost made me forget to *first comment marshmellow*…there done it now

    Are you spanish? I assume so because you said your tia showed you a game.

    Anywho, I love it and that’s that 🙂

  2. Oh no where did my review go…

    I’m sad now 🙁

  3. I got it for you 😉

    And, yeah, I’m 25% Cuban/Puerto Rican. I speak spanish around the house with my dad (who didn’t teach us anything other than “donde esta su madre?!?” and “cera su boca!”) *says while nibbling marshmellow*

    Oh, oh, oh, I love inspirting people! I’d be honored if I inspired you to write something good, and I’d love to read whatever Opal/XXX you write!!

  4. *grins* Wow. Brilliant, TWS. You’re SERIOUSLY one of my favorite wrIters… 😀
    Vivid imagery and word choice. Perfect spelling, exceptional grammar, and superb punctuation! Beautifully written, and it flowed quite nicely. 🙂
    I spotted but two things that may or may not be anything.

    1. On this sentence, did you mean prove? Both times?

    “Let me proof myself . . . Let me proof I can play.”

    2. And, did you mean your instead of you’re bag of tricks?

    Sorry. Just wondering. 😀


  5. Yes, I did. I feel so stupid. When i edit, i read it over to mself, and “prove” sounds almost exactly the same as “proof”. I’m such an idiot. Super-extra-many thank yooouuuus!!!

  6. That was pretty bada**! Admit it, it was.
    I just absolutely fell in love with it second paragraph. You captured some amazing thoughts, and everything flowed perfectly. Fix the you’re/your confusion and everything will be good.
    Love Yah. Fantastic ♥

    That’s really good!! You said ‘let’s play a gamer, any game.’ That was the only problem.

  16. I knew I was right to be excited about your Opal-love. It’s like what Fluff is to APB, only one hundred thousand times better than Fluff. 🙂
    the game in my country would be called ‘sepak takraw’, if that’s the game, by the way. 🙂

    5 stars to obsessions!

    () ()

  17. Yeah the game ur talking about Sea we call it Sepak Raga…I hate that game. I can’t play it to save my life.
    I think I’ll stick to Hockey *Picks up Hockey Sticks and stares menacingly at Janssen, the only one that is as good as me on the hockey pitch. I still need to pay him back for my two skinned knees…wait that was my fault, oh well*

  18. I roughly based the game on one from either Mayan or Aztec culture, where I believe it was the champions who were sacrificed to the gods, for luck of some shizz like that. 😀

    Thaaaanks, by the way, guys!1!1! 🙂

  19. oooh I remember that game, I saw it in either a movie or a tv cartoon. It looked ridiculously hard.

    Finished my spanish orals, and I freaked. I’m meant to take spanish for GCSE as well. oh well 🙁
