Can Fairies read minds, or something close to that?

I have an inkling that Holly and No.1 broadcast thoughts to one another in The Time Paradox, but what does that mean? 'Calm, she broadcast, though she knew that No.1's empathy would be muted. Calm, little friend. Artemis will save us.'- Artemis Fowl:The Time Paradox.
And then in The Atlantis Complex, Foaly guesses what Holly is thinking (though this one may be more common sense). 'Foaly seemed to read her mind, but more likely it was fairy empathy.'- Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex.
So, I just want comments on what you think of fairy empathy.

I think it's just fairy empathy. Especially since the fairies are very, I guess you could call it, in-tune with each other's feelings. Remember how TTP mentioned Artemis would always listen to music at high volume levels to drown out the voices in his head during the full moon when he had his magic? Those voices were fairy thoughts coming from the fairies doing the Ritual. So I don't think they can read minds.

Aw, but I always wanted to be able to say my favorite character could read minds, even though he couldn't do magic. I guess Colfer just wanted fairy empathy to be a mysterious thing.

I wish Arty kept his magic, it would make him so much more... mysterious.

Yeah, sometimes I wish that. And then I think about the ending in TLG and wish Artemis had never had magic to begin with. :(

I got the impression that while they may have the empathy thing (letting them have an idea of others' emotions, but probably not anything really specific, I think) the empathy warlocks mentioned in TLG (one created the unicorn language Foaly's nephew was fluent in) may be able to read minds.

fairy empathy could be something like a sixth sense, maybe.

I'd say that they used telepathy in TLC because at that moment they were all linked by very strong magic, much like in the Time Tunnel. Other than that I don't think they have telepathy, otherwise they wouldn't need locators, comms sets, email... etc.

I think fairies are able to sense vague feelings, if both people agree to be open. In TTP, Holly broadcasts the feeling of calm to No 1, which is a very undefined feeling. Empaths must have more ability. They may be able to sense, I don't know, thoughts?
