Ah..Shouldn't we get back on topic? Anyway, I found a glitch in one of the books but I forgot which one. I just remember that the book says that Artemis sits down twice. I think it says he sat down, then someone says something and he sits down again without getting up!

That glitch sounds familiar. It sounds like TEC or maybe TAI. It was in one of the first three books, right?

Yes! I was hoping someone would remember it so I could be sure I wasn't imagining it.

I just found 2 more glitches in the first AF book.They might've been mentioned before but I don't have time to search the whole thread. The first one is that both Butler and Holly get knocked out by the troll. That means that they both should have left the timestop because they're changing what state of consciousness they're in. The other one is that Holly was ordered by Artemis not to hurt him, yet Holly punches him in the face a little while later. Holly should have lost her powers when she punched Artemis.

No, I don't think he told her, "You do not have permission to hurt me." I think he said, "You cannot hurt me. You have no magic left." Idk, I haven't read that book in a while.

No, he said she wasn't allowed to physically harm him. I remember the phrase "bodily harm" - something like she had to obey "my wishes, which obviously do not include bodily harm to myself." Something like that.

But that isn't specifically saying 'You cannot hurt me'. It's more saying, 'I would rather you didn't'. There's a bit in the AF1 about how the commands have to be very precise.
Thankyou for my avvie, Rain! I luv it!!! :laughing:

I know, I was just clearing up what was said in the book.

Bet he would now. . .

(And wanted it??? HAHAHAHAHH)

This is really a grammer thing, but in AI American version (I think . .) somewhere it says 'Butler smile "blah blah" ' I'm sure it should be 'smiles' (Maybe it's when Holly says 'Gentlemen it's been a pleasure?)

And the age Artemis was when his father vanished. That's changed from 10/11.

I found grammar and syntax errors in quite a few of the books actually. I can't recall all of them now, but I know for sure that in TOD, Colfer uses an open bracket and then forgets to put a close bracket.

Yes! I noticed that too, but I can't, for the life of me, remember where :/
