Latest News


Eoin Colfer has told The Guardian that the next book in the series, number 8, is going to be the very last one.

Aside from that sad news, he does give us his plans for the story and what will come of Artemis. Read below to hear what will happen (No spoilers for either book 8 or The Atlantis Complex).

Or if you’d rather see the full interview, just click here to watch the video on the Guardian site! Including a quick excerpt reading from The Atlantic Complex, and something that the A/H shippers are *not* going to like!

One more book, and then that’ll be the end of that,” he said. “He will be faced with a choice where he can be kind to somebody and he won’t gain anything, or he can be unkind and he will find a million dollars in a suitcase, and he will choose the nice way, and that will be the end,” he explained. “That’s how I’m going to finish it, on a very simple choice.”

The child mastermind has changed through the series, Colfer continued, from being “pretty much your standard bad guy … kind of two dimensional”, to someone with “a bit of a conscience”. “He’s gone from being this horrible bad guy to being more of a Robin Hood kind of guy, where he does commit crimes, but you feel they’re kind of warranted,” he said.

Like Peter Pan, Colfer explained, Fowl will put away the magic, the childish things, but he will also do something “that could be considered very human”. “There’s not going to be any huge battle, and going up the stairs to heaven, it’s not going to be that kind of finish.” he added. “There will be the big adventure, but the end will be in a little epilogue. End of story.

What are your thoughts? Would you rather see things ending differently? Or would you rather just not see things end at all?


Today a new Artemis Fowl book, The Atlantis Complex, goes on sale!

Everyone is probably going to rush out and buy their copies. However, after you’ve read it, make sure to keep the spoilers to yourself!

Calling all writers! Artemis Fowl FanGathering has another challenge for you. The theme this time around is elements. You will put together four fanfictions, drabbles or otherwise, based around each of four elements. Feel free to use this Wikipedia article for inspiration and ideas. You may use any of the groups of four elements.

Entries will be judged by BlackOpal, Carino, and Artificial Asian. The winner’s story will be featured on the main site, and moved into the Editor’s Choice section of the archive.

Entering:
Once you have your story completed, post it on the fanfiction archive; and make sure to place it in both the challenge entries category, and whatever category it would normally fall under. Send your entry or a link to it to penguinsplaysoccer24@gmail.com, and make sure it is complete at this time. The challenge will close on August 15, so you have plenty of time.

Rules:

1. Submissions must follow the archive rules, which include spelling and grammar.

2. Entries should be a minimum of 750 words, and can be as long as you like.

3. Each element should have a relatively short fic, a one-shot or a drabble. No chapter fics.


Recently a record breaking earthquake hit the coast of Haiti, killing many and displacing the lives of others. Doctors and supplies are in high demand. I’m sure that you’ve heard all about it on the news, but there’s something you can do about it.

Our lovely and generous mod Julissa Holly Fowl has been doing a lot to help out on Haiti. She is putting together collections of writing and art that she will sell, donating all of the profits to relief efforts in Haiti.

She has even been featured in the Red Cross’s blog here.

Through Twitter and online forums, especially the FanGathering one, she is helping spread the word about Haiti and putting forth great effort to assist those in need.

Here are her instructions:

Help the Red Cross and Mercy Corps’s Haiti relief efforts with your writing and art!! I know there are some fabulous artists and writers here, so take this under consideration if you have the time, okay?

I’m going to put together a collection of poetry and artwork about the Haiti earthquake, get it printed as little booklets, and sell them as a fundraiser. The proceeds will be split between Mercy Corps and the Red Cross.

If you want to help, send your artwork or poetry to me at julissaholly@gmail(.)com, with the subject “Helping Haiti.” Send text-based stuff as a .rtf or .txt file, and artwork as .png, .jpg, or .gif files. Please send each thing as a separate attachment, but as one email.

You can send as many things as you like, but please proofread and/or have someone betaread all writing.

A good example of what I’m looking for is Alanna-Lena Zelen’s poem Devastation.

Thank you!

So send in your artwork and writing! Help the people of Haiti! From what I’ve heard she has finished taking submissions for her first booklet, but if she gets enough she might do a second one. When she has more information on purchasing the booklets we will post it here. πŸ™‚ One of these will be great to have, and will help a good cause!

And great job, Julissa, for doing this. You’re an inspiration and it’s great to know that we can do something to ease the tragedy.


Hey loyal Haven Herald-readers!

It’s been a long time since we updated! So much has been happening. Our two admins have retired/taken leave (we hope that they’ll be back one day!) in order to focus on school and work. Because of this, the Herald has been put on hiatus!

So much has happened since our last issue! We had a fanfiction contest! The Time Paradox has been released! The Fangathering awards have come and went! And, of course, the mods played a wonderful April Fool’s joke on the entire Fangathering forum. πŸ™‚

As you can see, this edition is completely about genders. You know, boys and girls. As you might know, girls are, of course, better than guys. But hey, the guys say that they are better, so this is a fight with no end. Anyway, in this brand new Haven Herald, we have a lot of lovely articles. We’ve attracted the cream of the crop to write for us. I’m sure you will enjoy this edition very much. So, have fun reading!

The site team.

We’ve just moved all of FanGathering over to a shiny new VPS server (big upgrade from our old web hosting!).

The nice thing about this is that the site should load a little snappier now (especially on the gallery and forum). But we need your help.

We’d really appreciate it if you could reply here to this post if you spot any errors at all over the next few days. I’ve tested things out pretty thoroughly, but I’ve probably missed a few things out anyway! If the site gives you errors at any point, please let me know (just leave a comment here) so we can get them sorted! πŸ™‚

There’s been one other change;

What Happened to the FanListing?

The FanListing had 768 members from 66 countries. That’s a heck of a lot of Artemis Fowl fans (the biggest collective listing of them on the internet!)

It was nice while it lasted, but I’m afraid the script hasn’t been updated since 2004 now. The site that originally produced it has long since taken it offline because it’s a security risk, and given that fan listings like our one have gone out of fashion online now, I can’t see any viable replacement for it popping up.With all that in mind, the FanListing has been taken down, sorry.

If you’re an Artemis Fowl fan and want something to sign up to though, our forums are much more fun anyway! πŸ˜‰

What Happened to my Forum Posts?

If you posted a message on the forum during the transfer, sorry, it may have been lost. We put a notice on the forum main page about this, but you mightn’t have seen it on time.

We know it sucks, but it really was unavoidable. If you want to know the reason, read on!

To move the site, we recreated the whole site in the new server first. The very last thing we did was to copy over the forum database again so it was as up to date as possible. At that point we changed FanGathering.com to point to the new server. Unfortunately it takes time (Up to 48 hours) for that change to work its way across the globe, so depending on where you are in the world, you could have been on the new forum in an hour, or waiting a full day… πŸ™

We disabled the FanFiction gallery completely during this time, just to make sure that no-one could write new chapters to their stories and end up losing all that. Sorry for any confusion that might have caused!

Hopefully that’s the end of the chaos though, thanks for bearing with us!


The Atlantis Complex Page.

Thank you very much to HollyShort9 for researching and writing this awesome page!

I know we’re all looking forward to the new book very much, aren’t we? To all you fangirls and fanboys out there: save the squeeesploding for the party, ‘kay? (Or at least until your parents are out of the house. Trust us here.)
Sincerely,

The FanGathering Team

Arty & Holly (Foaly, too if you wish)

Fairy-tec video games. Don’t get sucked in *hintideahint*. They is addicting.

AF/HS can be paired if it works for you.

I’m not too strict with this, so have fun!
Artemis/Holly
No straight-up romance, comedy
Artemis and Holly want to get presents for each other…


Artemis/Juliet
Juliet coming home for Christmas. Maybe a cheesy mistletoe kind of thing.
I would like it to be third person. Try not to do a kind of short, immediate kind of thing. Make it drag on if possible.

Opal(/Author’s Choice)
Paradise Lost
I’m not really picky, anything involving Eden, Eve, Adam, Apples, Snakes and/or the fall of Lucifer will bring me much joy. :)

Beckett & Butler
Artemis goes missing. It’s a competition on who can find him first. Beckett is thirteen.
Please, no romance between Beckett and Butler.

Characters: Artemis, Myles, Beckett
Pairing: Artemis/Holly, or none
Artemis agrees to make his Christmas list for Santa Claus with his little brothers, and ends up getting his wish on Christmas day. Use your imagination.

Artemis & Beckett.
What’s so great about treacle mixed with espresso?
(NOTE: You should try it yourself first!)
Any outcome is allowed. You have the freedom in the form of expressing this. (even poetry, even angst (if that’s possible))
Any other character that you see fit to put in the story, by all means, do!

Butler and the twins (Myles and Beckett)
1st meeting after Artemis is found, when no one thinks Butler has lost his mind anymore. Through the twins (either one) POV. Twins are wary of Butler. Humor is a plus.


Butler & Madam Ko (I think thats her name xD)
Story line: Butler’s childhood and training.

Vinyaya/Root
I’d like it to be back when they were young in the 1500’s
With implied Cudgeon/Vinyaya (in the past)
You can do whatever you want in this fic, but I’d like it to be PG-13

Opal (/Artemis), love, magic, control, obsession, insanity
This is sort of an anything-goes fic; I won’t throw a fit unless you’re not faithful to Opal’s character.Β  But any rating, kink, whatever, is good.


Artemis/Holly, Arty does have some good in him when he really tries.

 

 

Bold means taken.


Hello, everyone! We of the FG Team are proud to (belatedly) announce the impending release of Artemis Fowl Book Number Seven: The Atlantis Complex! Please wait a moment while the sane ones among us get the fangirls under control- HEY! WHO TOOK MY TRANQUILIZER GUN?!

All right, we’re back.

Most of what we’ve found out about The Atlantis Complex can be found in this forum topic: clicky!

The Atlantis Complex will be released on July 13, 2010. Go write it on your calendar! We’ll wait.

Done? Good. We hope you’re looking forward to it as much as we are! Just don’t make the mistake one of our mods did: if you must scream your fannish joy, do it where your parents can’t hear. Trust us about that.

That’s all for now!

Excitedly yours,

The FanGathering Team
