You definitely know you're an AF nerd when you've been running a fansite for nearly 10 years!

Ho, I don't think there are many who will be able to top that one.

You know you are an AF nerd when you look at old posts on a fan forum and realize you have a novel's worth of writing. :laughing: You also know you're an AF nerd when you see how slow the fandom has gotten since the last book came out, and realize how starved for AF-chat you are. ;9
“After all, absolutely no one can help but suspect a criminal, liar, and manipulator of committing crimes, lying, and manipulating. And of course, no one is more aware of that simple fact than Artemis Fowl.”

Opal sets into motion her most diabolical scheme yet, to frame Artemis and turn his closest friends against him. Only this time she has a new calculating partner who knows Artemis better than he knows himself. [Post TAC]

You know you're an AF Fan when you unintentionally give the main character in your story raven hair and blue eyes.... though I do really love that combination tbh. :thumbsup:

The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
Oh, a million dreams for the world we're gonna make

You know you're an AF Fan when you're eating calamari and randomly scream
"I'm THE NUT!"
Been there, done that.
I regret nothing. ;)

When you are about to do something hard and potentially embarrassing, and an image pops into your head of Artemis lecturing you on it.

You know you are an AF nerd when...
...you're pulling the edge of your ears in front of the mirror to see how you would look as an elf.
...whatever movie, anime or book you read, you re-picture it in your head with AF characters (no kidding, it can be both very interesting - I got a lot of fanfiction ideas with this weird automatism - and totally funny, especially when you watch movies like Las Vegas Parano or Shaun of the Dead ^^' But my most favourite remains Artemis as Miranda from The Devil wears Prada - or Armani in our case XD)
...you're literally jumping of happiness when you realize there's an AF forum where people actually talk about AF
...you say ''D'Arvit'' to anyone who bothers you
...you faint every time you hear someone say ''Ireland'' or ''fairy''
...you laugh when you hear someone say ''leprechaun''
...you suddenly fall in an unexplainable love for carrotts and borrow your mom's strainer to cover it with foil and turn it into the most fashionable helmet.
...you sometimes try to vibrate very fast and disappear.
...you repeat to everyone that gold is power, you have to know your enemy and that history is written by guys who are fools or geniuses whether they succeed or not.
''T'es juste assez intelligent pour te rendre compte que tu l'es pas assez ; c'est déjà pas si mal.''

You know you're an AF nerd when… okay, personal experience: I was going to speak front of my whole class and my teacher. I was re-reading the Time Paradox at the time, and I could just hear Artemis saying that I really had no reason to be worried, since he had to argue for a friend's life in front of a whole bunch of bloodthirsty Extinctionists while wearing a fake beard. This didn't make me feel any better.

...you tell your parents that Santa Claus is really a fairy.
...you refuse to eat lollipops.
...you have three copies of the same AF book.
...you teach someone Gnommish even though they have never read AF.
...you complain that AF's eyes are brown in the first two graphic novels.
...you complain that Holly is taller than AF is the graphic novels.

... You become an evil genius when you sleep (no kidding, I was in camp, and my friend heard me talking like Arty in my sleep. Apparently I found the theory of evolution completely illogical.)

... Giving someone a lollipop becomes a secret insult

... You go a whole day only saying quotes from Artemis Fowl, just because you wanted to.

... You play AF-themed Truth or Dare, Would you Rather, Taboo, and well... Anything really.

... You've spent hundreds of dollars worth of your own actual savings on cosplaying. This is when I refused to dip into my savings to buy stationery for myself.

...you hand out valentines that say "I don't like lollipops" and include a lollipop in them. :blush:
...you want to make your own AF movie because the real one is taking so D'Arviting long.
...you act out AF using stuffed animals.
...your phone background says "Keep calm, it's Artemis Fowl"
...the cover of your binder says "Keep calm, it's Artemis Fowl"

Double post, but this is important.

You know you are an AF nerd when, in your Pioneer Simulation, you name yourself Opal and your "brothers" Artemis and Orion and say that Artemis broke up with Minerva and started dating Holly.

...You laugh at random times in conversations because a funny AF scene popped into your head.
...Your ratio of AF books to non AF books is 2:1. (for every 1 other book you read, you read Artemis Fowl at least twice).
...You can read one line in any book and know instantly what just happened.
...You rock at the quote games without having to open your books.
...You can't grasp the concept of the Artemis Fowl series being over. (NOOOOOO!!!!!!)
I'm fine, seeing as you asked.-Foaly
Gnommish… Gnommish… What blasted translation system doesn’t have Gnommish?
