** I think the Holly/Artemis thing is adorable. It's been the FanPreferredCouple since book one. Whatever age differences are made up by Artemis' mental maturity and elf:human year ratios. By this point in the Atlantis Complex, it'd be pretty hard to argue that Artemis/Holly was not completely canon, at least from Artemis' side.

** If I remember correctly, it was explicitly mentioned that as Limbo was collapsing, time was not just showing past events, present events and future events at the same time, but also possible outcomes that could, but ultimately did never happen. Although Holly's death was initially present/future, due to Paradoxes being possible in this collapsing world, Artemis was able to alter the definite into only a possible outcome.

** I'm guessing RuleOfFunny is meant to make us overlook some of it.

* On that note, "[=LEPrecon=]" is a pretty cute joke, but it makes no sense. The pun only works in English, and the word "leprechaun" comes from Gaelic. And, putting aside that their uniforms used to be more traditional, if "leprechauns" are actually a badass police force, why is it folklore remembers them as humble shoemakers?

* One from the very first chapter of the first book: Nguyen, whose intel helps Artemis procure his copy of the Book, is presented as Butler's informant (he states that "Nguyen is a good man" who probably isn't scamming them). Then Butler fails to recognize Nguyen through a half-assed disguise. And Artemis has to introduce Butler and explain their relationship to him. So does Nguyen know Butler or not?



*** It's not uncommon for human beings to call, say, thirty years of age relatively young, although you're well into adulthood by then. 1000 could be the fairy 30s.



* Exactly how is LEPrecon a reconnaissance organization? They sound like an ordinary police force to me. Is the "recon" connection just to make a joke work?

*** I believe what everyone is forgetting about this is that it seems to mostly be a onesides Chinese Whispers or Red Menace, most of the problem lies in simple everyday propaganda spread from each person to each new generation. with the fact that none of the fairy race actually deals with the humans much your looking at no actual proof given to them that we arent more than what we were painted to be. with the blatant laws regarding any form of interaction with us how could they possibly believe anything different when all their lives they have eithr had proof of how terrible we are in front of them or just been told so with no way to prove or disprove that notion. if one cant come up with evidence to the contrary odds are they will take what was told at face value. questioning what we are told isnt inherently the nature of each species, people only question once they see an issue with a blief. until then they hold onto the point they were given with an almost religius zeal.

* In the first book, Artemis, Butler, and Juliet ''[[FridgeHorror drink champagne mixed with sleeping pills]],'' which you'd think a "genius" like Arty would realize is a big medical no-no. I mean, just take a look at HeathLedger.

*** How would it go wrong. The fairy population is small enough that they only have two major cities (Atlantis and Haven) and the Book automatically burns if it is stolen from a fairy.

*** When have it been impied that fairy magic is more powerful? The Sprite in first book was probably just lying as a last resort to scare him. Opal Koboi was only been able to get her super-charge magic was only because she was taking the fairy-equivalent of magic steriods. And when is it mention that energy bolts is a magical power, as its not use by the LEP or anyone at all. Also there is only ONE island of demons. humans have spread across the ENTIRE GLOBE. Time-Travel is shown as incredibly dangerous, and not always successful, and Mass Mesmerization wont work because you not everyone will be looking at a screen, and given on how a mesmerized person is portrayed in the book, can be easily recognized.

*** Colfer's explanation of the different kinds of fairy magic is inconsistent at best. An example of this would be how many times fairies have to do the Ritual. Holly lasted four years before the first book, which was supposed to be much longer than she should have put it off, but she also managed. After that, she's needed to do it just about every book because she's been completely out. Another would be exactly what magic fairies have - Holly's minor in college was magic, but she isn't a healer, and time travel is pretty much just the wheelhouse of the demon warlocks. So what does hers involve? To the original point, even if that sprite was lying, which is a fair point, Holly made a similar claim when she first met Artemis, and Holly doesn't lie much.
