*The Castle Of Myths,Β theΒ GaliputanΒ mountains*

Opal smiled. It was a smile of revenge and cruelty. Artemis Fowl and his fairy crew may have stopped her once from exposing the existence of fairies to the mudmen but he wasn’t going to stop her for a second time. Oh no, this time, Opal wasn’t going to rely on a mesmerised environmentalist mudman to help her; she was going to use the ancient mythical creatures from the Frond Dynasty.


When Frond was the elfen king, many more creatures had existed. Great scaly dragons had inhabited the tallest, most remote mountains in the now forgotten country of Galiputa. Chimeras had terrorised the skies above and many beasts, horned and armoured, had roamed the Earth freely until the mudmen came into existance. They had crafted weapons out of stone and metal to slay the fiery dragons, to hunt and kill the chimeras and to effectively wipe out countless numbers of other, now ‘mythical’ creatures until they became extinct. Nonexistent.


But not for much longer. Thought Opal. Now that I’ve discovered this castle and its dungeons filled with the fossilised skeletons of the mythical creatures, that doubtless the mudmen captured, I have DNA and with the powers that these creaturesΒ had and with my new technology, their clones will be so much more active and exciting! Opal smiled yet again. How a creature so small and sweet could be so malicious, nobody knew.

    This is great!And what’s really nice, too, are no mistakes on spellings, grammar and such a great idea!

  11. great update Duck!!!
    Love it. This is going great!!!
    Please continue!!!

  12. Love the update! It’s starting to get way too suspenseful for my liking, though! πŸ‘Ώ

    And why is it that every time anyone says anything about Opal cloning mythical creatures, I get an image of her cloning dragon Pokemon? XD


  13. Hmm… good. A tiny bit too fast-paced, but good. I found a few minor spelling mistakes in the earlier chapters, and the comma key could use a bit more attention, but good. Your style is very unique. If you spent a bit more time describing, it’d be perfect. Nice so far.

    Thanks guys! AA, could you point out the spelling mistakes please? I’ll try and improve it by putting in more description from now on so thanks for pointing that out! πŸ˜€

    This is really good! Totally original too, and, personally, i think you got all the character’s personalties spot-on! Though, i think Mulch could be slightly more boisterous, however it’s a minor matter, especially with all the perfect punctuation! (Am i alliterating too much??)((Is that even a word???))
    plz update! Also, how many plot-twists can i expect?
    Great work!

  16. Alrighty, since you asked…

    Existance should be existence; elfen should be either elfin or elven (I think); strangely enough, firey should be fiery; nonexistent is one word and spelled like I spelled it; exiting on the first page should be exciting; supress should be suppress; pretty sure this one’s a typo, but “anything” on the second page is missing its second n; second page, you used it’s as a possessive instead of its; I think sniveling is spelled like I spelled it (5th page); occuring should be occurring; and the rest is clean as far as I can see. πŸ™‚

    Keep in mind, some of those might be alternate spellings that I don’t know, me being Amurrican and you being from tee UK.

  17. Duck With No Name April 10th, 2010 at 1:01 pm 17

    Thanks AA! πŸ˜€ I put down elfen because the Gnommish on the bottom of the first book said “elfen king” and snivelling is spelt with 2 l’s in English πŸ˜› I couldn’t find the “it’s” that you mentioned so I haven’t been able to change that πŸ˜• . Besides all of that, I’ve changed the other spellings and I’m going to learn them! πŸ˜€ Thank you!

  18. Sure πŸ™‚
    Spelling’s perfecto in the update, by the way.

    And it’s good! You keep the atmosphere up really well, but I think some people might kill you for the suspense XD

  19. Like me. πŸ‘Ώ

    If this gets any more suspenseful, I’m going to explode, and then all the little gobbets of Yoshi are gonna come after you. Very, very good, the update was incredibly short though. XP

    *still gets an image of Opal cloning a Salamence* I can see her in my mind’s eye, a Salemence coming out of the machine. Celebrating like all get-out. It’s actually pretty funny. *plays Pokemon video games way too much*


  20. πŸ™‚ Great update! Please do so again!!!

    This is really, really good! Your plot pace is perfect (for me at least), and you have v. good grammar with no spelling mistakes! All of your characters are in, well, character, especially Artemis Fowl – ‘”Negative”, dismissed Artemis’
    The only thing I can think of to improve your brilliant TCoM, would probably be too add a little more description in the senses, e.g. your aural sense, so maybe some onomatopoeia words. But this should only be considered a minor suggestion, I have to say your story doesn’t seem to even need it!
    Keep up the good work, and speed up updates!
