In the early days of these events, Holly Short and the rest of the LEP are trying desperately to avoid calling on Artemis Fowl for help for many different reasons, but the fact that he is integral to many of the events Opal's very presence in the future are unraveling makes contacting him inevitable. Back home, Artemis is dealing with a mother who reluctantly has to accept that her son is far too involved to be held back from involvement and who is struggling to catch up in her son's life.

Roleplayer Preferred Requirements:
[*] Having read all of the books in their entirety
[*] Using correct grammar and spelling as the forum requires but with absolutely no netspeak in roleplaying unless it is to illustrate a poorly written email or text message
[*] Because of some of the things I plan to do in the RP, it is probably good if you are at least "okay with" Artemis/Holly as a ship.*
[*] Bear in mind that while anything is open for OOC discussion with me that this RP has an end goal in mind, so nothing that could prevent the characters from eventually reaching some version of the desired plot resolution will not work
[*] I realize that this post is long, but please READ the entire thing before you sign up. I really, really want enough people to sign up to do this, but this is also my first time starting an RP anywhere and I really want it to work out well for everyone.
Character I wish to play: Holly Short*
~ Artemis Fowl II
Commander Trouble Kelp
Opal Koboi (Younger/From the Past)
Other user-created characters will be needed, but I have not made these characters up as that would take all of the fun out of it for everyone else. Here are some basic guidelines about the kinds of original characters that might be useful:
Characters of any species, human or fairy, that can aid Artemis and Holly (and co.?) with their quest as they travel far and wide in search of "the Key".
By the onset of this RP, in my mind Opal is already gaining ground much too quickly with her evil plans to take over the world and what-not, so she's bound to have some accomplices and minions. I would imagine that both highly attractive male and female companions might be of some use or amusement to her, while muscle would also be quite agreeable to her for her devices.
Some recurrences of other established AF characters (perhaps a Commander Root, anyone?) might be needful and useful because of the time-travel-related nature of this RP. These should be minor in nature, as some of the other roles might be, so if need be someone else who's playing a more major role can also do this.
Preliminary OC max: 5
The above stipulation is to try to make sure that I don't end up with a ridiculous amount of OCs because no one wanted to take up the responsibility of portraying the real AF characters. This number can and will go up if it ever becomes necessary and it doesn't count toward one or two line plot device characters that may become necessary to progress the plot.

* The reason that it is important that you at least be "okay" with Artemis/Holly is that I am going to be playing Holly and, in spite of the fact of the fact that some people love it and some people hate it, I am among those who kind of find that my Artemis Fowl fandom experience feels a bit incomplete without it. I haven't made any major decisions on the extent to which I want it to go, but I do at the very least expect there to be some underlying tension because of the kiss and their subsequent fight. I am more than willing to discuss the possible extent of Artemis and Holly's interaction on this level with whatever brave soul chooses to dare to take up the part of Artemis Fowl II and expect that such preliminary OOC interaction will be necessary. Character emotional interaction and development in general is important to me even outside this particular relationship.
* I just wanted to point out the fact that I want to play Holly is not some kind of egotism on my part. I really hope that people understand that I really do have a desire to play through this plot. It was with careful consideration that I decided I wanted to be Holly and only after several people assured me that I at least knew how to get into Holly's mindset was it that I really believed that I could possibly do it in a way that would do justice to my fellow RPers.
* Color Coding
I color-coded the character-needed list so I could point out which characters are needed immediately and which characters might come in handy, etc.
This color means that the characters are needed pretty much yesterday and the sooner I get a suitable fit the better.
This color means that the characters are likely needed but may be played by other people who are blue characters if they wish and will not play such a major role that the RP cannot be started before they are placed.
This strange little color I assigned to Minerva because I do have a specific plot use for her, but if someone wants to play another original character that may fit the bill for the sort of assistance she would provide in the story, then he or she is my guest to point out the fact that Minerva may not be "needed" after all since I realize feelings about her are ambivalent (including my own).
This symbol: ~ before a name means that the position is filled. The name will also become a hyperlink to the user's profile for each character filled.
You made it through that long preamble. Congratulations!
If you made it through that, read it, and don't hate me then I am very relieved.
If you made it through that, read it, don't hate me, and are interested in participating then I am overjoyed!
Only one more thing you need to do...
If you have any questions PM or Email or IM me...
Otherwise, just fill out the following character sheet for me. I will be crossing names off the characters-needed list as I get replies.
You must fill out a character sheet in its entirety even if you are playing an established character so that I and the other roleplayers can get a feel for how you are approaching a character that we have either never met or know and love. If you are playing an actual AF character, please put any specific things you think about him or her that might diverge from the norm (in part to point out if there's going to be an unfortunate clash with what's needed for this RP but mostly for fun).
Magic? (Bold One): Yes/No

OOC best way to contact player:
*You don't actually have to know all the languages your character knows, just don't be ridiculous unless your character has the gift of tongues, in which case you can just say that.
I will be filling this character sheet out tomorrow for Holly should I get a reasonable response, but for now I have been working on this for an hour and a half and it is nearly 5 AM where I live and I have not slept and am therefore entirely to dedicated to this "art" and am thoroughly going to pay for messing up my schedule this badly...
Note about the name: I was trying to figure out something to call the object my story concerns and I looked up "time" in the thesaurus and I saw the phrase "the Quantum Key" or something like that in a Google ad along the side of the thesaurus website. I really have no idea what said object was or even if it was an object, but after looking up the definition of quantum I was satisfied with the name and it sounded sufficiently Artemis Fowl-esque.
