Is Artemis ever going to get pink hair?

Okay, seriously now. Just last book dates/has he started writing it yet/any sort of wildly innaccurate timeline?

And Kitsy, don't you think he's going to answer that with 'when I got married/when my kids were born'? Just a thought.

When you look back on the AF series, what do you like the best and if you could change anything, what would it be?

Dear Most Awesome and Amazingfulness Mr. Colfer,

I'm a budding fantasy novelist, so you're one of my biggest role models! AF inspires me more than you could imagine, so...well, basically I'd like to know everything you can tell me about writing young adult fiction. I'm currently working on a story about a reluctant prince who is part dragon, and I think it's pretty good, but it never hurts to get help from the MASTER. So, what ispires you? How do you get yourself to write when nothing comes? How do you fix plot problems? Tell me everything!

Also...ANYTHING ABOUT THE MOVIE!!!???

My first name is Laura and I've got two questions.
1. Will Minerva appear in the last book?
2. What's the best bit of advice you'd give a beginner author?

First name: Rick

Hello Mr. Colfer,

thank you so much for wanting to answer our questions :) Your books help me relax, and they've learned me a lot! Thank you for that!

My question is: could Artemis have beaten Jon Spiro without the help of the People? Could he have saved Number One from Minerva withouth the People? I know that these situations wouldn't even exist without his knowlegde of the People, but still?

And by the way, I'm sorry for my bad grammar. I'm from The Netherlands, and I'm still learning :)

Again, thank you so much for taking time to do this!
GREETINGS!!

Nice :laughing:

Thank you so much for doing this!

Why do you insist that a relationship between Artemis and Holly couldn't work when you included an elf-human relationship in the last book that shows that if magic wasn't used to control each other they could have lived happily ever after, especially since Artemis and Holly have undeniable chemistry with each other and elf-human relationships have worked in other famous novels, most notably Lord of the Rings?

Edit: I feel like it's too long, but there isn't really a good way to ask it otherwise without having to ask follow-up questions.

Also,
Will there ever be a conclusion to Minerva that doesn't involve a skier?

Also, my name is Becky

Ahem-

If you were a parrot on the verge of the end of existence, with only a bottle cap, a towel, and a small thermal nuclear fire ant, what would you do to save all existence?
......

Or better question

Is there gonna be another major death like Root's in the near future?
Or
Are you ever gonna kill off Opal and if so who will be the next major villain in the books?
Or an even better question
When is the Artemis Fowl movie coming out?
OR THE ULTIMATE QUESTION!
The answer is 42
There's a flaw in the system, as usual

I actualy look like HARRY POTTER!!!

Is there a curse or something on all LEP Commanders dying? Why did Vinyaya have to die??? (I bet Mere hopes Trubs will die next)

(We can post more than one question right?)

Spoiler:
'I must go,Butler,' said Artemis firmly.'My mind is eating me alive.I think the guilt is the main problem.I must do whatever I can to atone.'
'And?' said Butler,unconvinced.
Artemis held his arms out so that Foaly could drape the suit sleeves over them.
'And I will not be beaten by that jackass.'
'Jackass?'said Foaly,wounded.‘My favourite uncle is a jackass.'


From here
Spoiler:
If asked in class what the Avada Kedavra curse does, yelling "It does DEATH!" may be correct but is not the manner in which one should answer.
The proper way to report to Professor McGonagall is "You wanted to see me, Professor?" Not "I have it on good authority that you have no evidence."
I will not tell the Ravenclaws that they're basically useless because Hogwarts' smartest student is in another house.

How did you know?

ONTOPICNESS:

Will Artemis end up with anyone?

Will there be a huge twist in the last book?

Will there be many deaths in the last book?
