Okay, so I know Arty/Juliet is an odd ship, but I made it work (I hope). Enjoy!

There are worse things I could do
Than go with a boy or two
Even though the neighborhood
Thinks I’m trashy
and no good
I suppose it could be true
But, there are worse things I could do

“Positive,” I told him. Those were the first words out of my mouth to him that morning.

“Are you sure?” he asked, astonished.

“Do these pregnancy tests lie, Artemis?” He shook his head no. Artemis Fowl was going to beย a father. Oh, if Butler were to hear about this…. Even though Arty’s his employer, he’d kill him. I don’t really remember how it happended. I guess I was drunk. That was probably the case. But, I’m ten years older than him! He’s only 19!ย And, now he’s gotten me pregnant. Thanks a lot Artemis. Everyone will think…. oh, gosh. I don’t even want to know what they’ll think. But, it could be worse.

I could flirt with all the guys
Smile at them and bat my eyes
Press against them when we dance
Make them think they stand a chance
Then refuse to see it through
That’s a thing I’d never do

I could just run off from him. Leave myself to be a single mom. Oh, the horror that would be! No, I’m going to make him take care of this baby with me. But, maybe running off wouldn’t be such a bad idea. I could find a nice guy who would help me take care of the baby. It might take a few men, but I’d find one. No, wait a second, Juliet. He’s going to be the father of this baby, and that’s that! Well, there are worse things I could do.

I could stay home every night
Wait around for Mr. Right
Take cold showers everday
And throw my life away
On a dream that won’t come true

Oh, I couldn’t run off anyways. I’d be waiting around for that perfect man forever. I would be completly tossing my life into the garbage can like a failed science project. Mr. Perfect-super-awesome-man will never come around. He never does, only in the movies. will he rescue the girl from the terror of life. Yeah, in real life, people don’t burst out into song randomly. I feel the tears start to stream down my face. I tun away from Artemis, and go to my room.

I could hurt someone like me
Out of spiite or jealousy
I don’t steal and I don’t lie
But I can feel and I can cry
A fact I’ll bet you never knew
But to cry in front of you

As I get closer to the bedroom door, the tears start raining harder. I can’t let Artemis see me like this. He’d think I’d never be able to care for a baby. Gosh, I really screwed up this time. I flopped ontoย my bed,but had forgotten to lock the door. Artemis came in silently and sat on the end of my bed.

“It’s going to be okay, Juliet.” he whispered. “I’m positive.”

That’s the worst thing I could do.

  2. Wow. Honestly, A/J isn’t that odd a ship. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Nice story. Its got a good plot, and I really connected to Juliet’s pain. Although Artemis was just sorta… there. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Keep on writing! I’d love mor stories from you!

    I love that song! And the fic, obviously.=)

  4. Aw, that was great. That song totally interlocked with the fic. ๐Ÿ™‚ Not many mistakes… Actually, I’m pretty sure there were none at all. Excellent job, Artylover. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Okay i’m sorry if i’m being blunt or rude, or anything but i read until the pregnancy test thing and i was kinda put off. i know i didn’t really give it a chance but… Artemis wouldn’t get Juliet pregnant. He just wouldn’t. I was contemplating wether i could get away with him having three kids with Minnie in Bedtime stories. He just wouldn’t. No matter how stoned-drunk-high-old he was. What would his mummy say never mind butler or his father. Aremis would have anelized all these things before… i just wouldn’t happen and i feel kind of sick. Not in a mean ‘your story doesn’t make sence kind of way. Just what you are implying. I don’t mean to be nasty or mean or anything but…ew.

  7. I actually really like this ๐Ÿ™‚
    You wrote it very well. Usually any ship but A/H annoys me just a bit by dint of my selfishness, but this was done excellently. I just happended to notice one or two typos you could tun around ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Also, you need a comma when you’re directly addressing someone (i.e. “Thanks a lot, Artemis!”) And you do not need a comma after the word “but”.

    I’ll leave you on a good note, what you did with the beginning-end repetition is lov-e-ly. Repetition is one of my favorite literary devices ^_^ Well done.

  8. O:!! ITS GREASE!!!!!! OMGZZZZZ!!!
    I’ve never really like A/J but i liked this one o:
    im picky and thats why i dun like them but i really like this one =D
    butler is now evily plotting the perfect murder >=D *laughs chaoticly* MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
    now lets see if there are any other grease songs on here…perhaps summer lovin or sandra dee or OH!!!!! totally you’re the one that i want ^__^

  9. Yeah. I’m finally allowed to watch Grease, so Ive had all the songs stuck in my head for the past week. ๐Ÿ™‚
    And Beckett, I get what you’re sayin, but you must be drinkin some flamerade or something…

  10. love that the song goes with the fic, but… seriously? totally OOC!

  11. I am not very enthusiastic about the A/J ship, but I think this was brilliant and I want you to continue. I would also appreciate it if you could make it a little longer. I hate short stories. If you knew a little more about me, you would understand. =) And Beckett, I am not bashing you on your opinion or anything, it’s just that you didn’t have to be that harsh. Sorry, but it’s the truth.

  12. I LOVE IT! if you have read my profile, youll know i love A/J!!
