unconsious is fine, asleep isn'tIn TEC, Spiro says that Phonetix doesn't even have email. Then, later, he says in regard to Phonetix "That's the last snide email about stock prices I get from them!
Nope. Artemis said that the R&D department doesn't have email. But the rest of Phonetix could have email.
And on Crim, a forum I come from, we compiled a massive list of plot holes. Unfortnately, the list is a bit messy now, so I can't link it to you.
Holly and Butler and the troll fall unconscious in the time-stop, Butler doing it twice.
Trouble Kelp chose "Trouble" as his first name on the day he was accepted at the LEP Academy and the day he finished the Academy.
Artemis cracks his knuckles in the first book, but hates doing that in TEC.
AF takes place in the winter (Christmas Day) but there are mentions of cherry blossoms, rhododendrons, and a "fine night."
It says that it's impossible for dwarves to burp, yet Mulch does so in AF and TSD. (And possibly TLC.)
Mulch meets Artemis in TSD, but in TAI a couple months later, he completely forgets who Artemis is.
Oh! I missed that entirely, good catch!Also in TAC when Foaly says in defense that he rides to work on a tricycle, and then in TLG he has a rusty old truck.
The bit in TLC is written like an internal musing on Foaly's part; he wasn't telling anyone anything, it was more like something he was telling the audience. The exact quote is: (again, this is page 191 in my version)Well, with the whole Foaly and Caballine thing, Foaly didn't tell Holly that Caballine was in Police Plaza (for good reasons) and later Caballine asked Foaly to an art gallery. So Foaly did a white lie and said he met Caballine in an art gallery.
In TLG it says, (page 197, my version)Caballine was a centaur he had bumped into at a gallery downtown. She was a researcher with PPTV by day... (etc.) One thing led to another, and now he found himself jogging with her every evening.
So it doesn't seem like they quite jibe. :\Then, when Holly Short was missing in another dimension, he met Caballine at Police Plaza. At least that was what he told everyone.
I listen to audiobook versions of the AF series, and try to jot down notes whenever there's information about a setting or character's appearance, and I had written in my notebook that that initial description of No1 in TLC described him as having yellow eyes. But I finally looked it up the other day and I found it does say his eyes are orange after all. That's kind of discouraging now, since now I can't be sure how much of the other notes I've taken are wrong. XD Now I have to go back and change my descriptions in all my fanfictions, sigh.page 109, it says No1's eyes are orange (well, one eye at least), but I was pretty sure his eyes had been described as yellow in TLC. (but I don't have TLC on hand at the moment, so I can't check for sure, so I could be wrong.) But maybe demon warlocks' eyes just change color?
The book said you should never burp while tunneling. Other than that, he can burp whenever he wants to.It says that it's impossible for dwarves to burp, yet Mulch does so in AF and TSD. (And possibly TLC.)
I want to point out that the trolls are described as pathologically stubborn in TLG, and so would probably choose under 3 ft tall, because they are the opposite. Of corse, it is possible that they would think you wanted them to chose under 3 ft tall, and would choose human instead. It's hard to understand what a troll would do, but I highly doubt that the actions would lead to the troll category, even if the height was correct.In TAFF, Colfer says in his "Are you a Fairy" quiz that trolls are under three feet tall. In AF, he completely contradicts that.
I don't think he really means that. It says 'are you three feet tall' then if you say yes, it points to 'are you intelligent'. If you say no there then it basically goes to the troll.
Now, here are a couple of quotes where this is contradicted:The problem with dwarf gas was that it couldn't go up, only down. Imagine, if you will, the catastrophic effects of burping while digesting a mouthful of clay. Total system backup. Not a pretty sight. Thus dwarf anatomy ensured that all gas was passed below, actually aiding in the expulsion of unwanted clay.
[…]A light touch of fruit, but not enough to lighten the flavor. Definitely an occasion wine on the bottom rack. Mulch burped. That was good clay.
There's also another place in TTP, and a few other places in TOD and TLC.He [Mulch] swallowed the unfortunate creature, then funneled a mighty burp through his flapping lips.
“Never burp when you're tunneling,” he advised Artemis and Holly as casually as though they were sitting around a café table. “Dirt coming down, air coming up. Not a good idea.”
