Title: Concerning Birthdays and All Things Fowl
Rating/Genre: PG-13. Friendship/Family/Humour.
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Artemis Fowl II, Holly Short, Angeline Fowl, Artemis Fowl Senior, Beckett and Myles Fowl, Mulch Diggums. Mentions of Butler, Juliet Butler, Foaly, N°1 and Trouble Kelp. Platonic Artemis+Holly (or ambiguous Artemis/Holly, depending on how you wish to read it).
Warnings: None, except for Artemis' two left feet and a single nightmarish instant of a hairy derrière.
Summary: In which Angeline decides to celebrate Artemis' twenty-first birthday the traditional Fowl way - complete with folk music, merry-making and Irish step-dancing - and Artemis feels like weeping. Hilarity Ensues.
A/N: For Digi, who is always willing and the first one to read all my stories. This was inspired, in part, by the LOTR song, Flaming Red Hair and by a Tumblr headcanon post about how Arty's parents would be great Irish step-dancers (while he failed miserably at it, lol).
I have loved this series for a good ten over years and after finally finishing The Last Guardian three months ago, I suddenly feel an awful hollowness in my heart, as if I've just lost a terribly close childhood friend. So this fic is a tribute to my favourite children's book: to Artemis and Holly; to Butler and Juliet, bless their faithful hearts; Mulch, Foaly, Julius, N°1 and all of LEPrecon; to the fabulously wicked Opal Koboi and her unfortunate henchmen; to Myles and Beckett, and Angeline and Artemis Snr. But most of all, to Eoin Colfer, for giving us eleven (twelve?) wonderful years of Artemis and his magical adventures :')
