Yeah, the fandom was probably at it's most active around the time The Time Paradox came out, so I was getting into it on the tail end of it. (Just after The Atlantis Complex.) I think it could get more active around here if new people were to start posting in the discussion threads again, but it seems like most of the old people who were on here don't check here anymore... :\
On the topic:
1. You make so many Artemis Fowl references and bring it up so often that your sister bans it from the conversation.
2. No matter how many other fandoms you get into, when AF comes up in the conversation, all the little details you spent hours upon hours memorizing all immediately come flooding back. (It's like riding a bike.)
“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. [An Artemis Fowl fanfiction, set after The Atlantic Complex.]
...Shameless self-advertising, guys! C;
(And if you're really bored: AF fanart. ;J)
