Unusual Circumstances: Chapter 7Rebecca lay very still, her eyes shut and breathing deeply. She wasn't particularly claustrophobic, but anyone who has been forced into a small space under such stressful conditions would be likely to have a panic attack, which she was now trying to avoid. She told herself that there was plenty of room, and that she was there because she wanted to be there.
"Of course you are. You do this all the time, just for fun," one part of her mind thought sarcastically. She ignored it.
Once her heart beat had slowed down she opened her eyes. Of course, it was pitch black so she couldn't see, so she started feeling around. She didn't know what she was looking for, but whatever it was, she didn't find it and gave up after a moment.
"What am I going to do?" she wondered. She was pretty sure her chances of escape had been reduced to zero, if not lower. Wherever they were going would certainly be far from civilization, and, considering everything she had seen so far, would probably have a very good s
Unusual Circumstances: Chapter 6RebeccaPOV
Rebecca's dreams were vivid. All around her were lights and noise. Colors and images flashed in her vision making her feel dizzy and sick.
She was in great pain, her body aching all over, and she had the feeling that she was upside down. Her vision was red. Something dripped down her temple.
Then, her vision took on a blue tinge and the pain started to go away. She suddenly found herself upright, no longer in pain, and following a midget with green skin.
"This is odd," she thought, but she did what all dreamers do and just went with it.
She looked around and found they were in a desert. Despite that, the sky was stormy and looked like it couldn't wait to pour down. She tried to focus on her more immediate surroundings but found it difficult. She got the vague impression that things were not as they should be, then focused on where she was going.
They were approaching what seemed to be a large red blob that was yelling quite loudly in a language she couldn't understand
Unusual Circumstances: Chapter 5RebeccaPOV
Rebecca watched the city grow smaller as the plane ascended until all she could see was the sprawl of light.
She sighed, knowing that any chance she had at escaping had virtually disappeared. She had briefly considered jumping out but had immediately dismissed it on the grounds of A: she wasn't entirely sure how to use a parachute, or open the door for that matter, and B: Artemis would surely see what she was doing and call for Butler. Not that it mattered anyway, because as soon as they had reached about 40,000 feet altitude, Butler put the plane on autopilot and came out to watch her.
Artemis was on his laptop, ignoring her for the most part, although his eyes wandered over every few minutes. Butler had the chair leaned back and his eyes were closed, but she doubted he was actually asleep.
She glanced out the window and noticed her reflection and realized how grimy she felt.
"I need to clean up," she told Artemis.
"The restroom is over there," he said, tilting his h
Unusual Circumstances: Chapter 4Rebecca was extremely pale, her heart racing. All of her muscles had locked up and her eyes were wide and staring. Her shoulders were starting to ache from being tied up so long.
"That was the most terrifying thing I have ever experienced in my life." She said aloud to no one in particular.
Butler, in his attempt to lose their pursuer, had been driving at more than 100 miles per hour on the twisting country back roads. If not for his amazing driving skills, they would have shot off the road multiple times and would be injured at the very least. As it was, they were still rather rattled. The other party had not dared to go at such a speed on such a treacherous route and quickly fell behind. However, he did not slow down until the other car had long since disappeared from view.
Butler glanced up at the mirror. "Do you know how they found us, Artemis?" He was eyeing Rebecca like he thought she might have alerted them. Artemis didn't answer, instead reaching down, he pulled out an odd devi
Unusual Circumstances: Chapter 3ThirdpersonPOV
The sun was setting as Rebecca climbed into the car. "I must have been in that trunk longer than I thought. I always figured panic would make time slow down not speed up. I wonder if Jenny has called the police by now. Dad probably doesn't even know I'm missing yet."
She made to pull her sweater closer to block the cold but forgot her hands were still bound. She got in, the door slamming behind her.
The inside was dim, so she didn't notice the other figure until she sat down. She started slightly when he flipped on a light, illuminating the small space.
She was surprised to see he didn't look much older than her, maybe 16 at most? He was extremely pale -like he hadn't spent nearly enough time in the sun- and he wore a dark suit. His hair was raven black and his eyes were a shocking blue. Those eyes were regarding her cooly.
Rebecca forced herself to look into them, not wanting to appear weak.
"Who are you?" she demanded.
He had to be the one in charge, as odd as t
Unusual Circumstances: Chapter 2Artemis Fowl was not in a good mood. He had gotten very little sleep the night before and now had a bound girl in the trunk of his car.
This was not his idea.
A few days previously Holly had contacted him via communication ring. She had refused to give him any information, only demanded he do this job for her. When he had questioned why on earth he should do it she had merely replied, "You owe me, mud boy."
That he could not deny. Holly had saved his life so many times a normal person would have lost count. Then there was Butler, for whom she had gone as far as to bring back from the dead. They both owed her big time.
He had deduced that she must be either very important or very dangerous or both, despite her unexceptional appearance. This idea was heightened by the fact that he could find virtually no information on the girl. There was plenty on the man who was, apparently, her father, but it didn't mention that he had a daughter. Foaly had sent him the address of where she lived and
Unusual Circumstances: Chapter 1Summary: Artemis kidnaps a girl around his age, nothing you've never heard before. The twist? The People asked him to do it. Possible Arty/OC later on.
Rating: A paranoid PG-13.
Warning: Just a small possibility of language and violence in later chapters.
Disclaimer: I do not in any way own Artemis Fowl. Eoin Colfer does.
Rebecca Anderson was trudging home from school, her backpack laden with homework. This should have painted a rather dismal picture but Rebecca was feeling great.
They had gotten UIL results back that day and she had come in third place for writing. True it was not first place but she had met the other students that had beat her and was not at all surprised she hadn't been the best. She did better than she did last year at least and was quite content with her score.
"Those kids were freaking geniuses," she thought. "Or is it genii? Yeah I think it's genii."
At that moment she felt her phone buzz to life. She pulled it out and saw that her au pair, Jenny, had sent her a
Snatched~ by posiechan- ContinuationShe felt a large pressure just below her ribs as she was pinched between two massive fingers. For a moment, she squirmed and kicked and screamed. Then she was suddenly fifty feet off the ground, and she decided it might be a better idea to hold still.
Her stomach was left behind, and her head spun wildly at the sudden altitude change. She happened to glance down and instantly regretted it, her breath starting to come in great gasps, and she tried to clutch one of the huge fingers to prevent herself from falling.
The giant held her up to the light, gazing at her in amazement. He'd never seen anything like her before, and he was absolutely fascinated.
A few more moments of this and she could stand it no longer. "P-Please, put me d-d-down," she pleaded, terror written across her features.
The giant visibly started, then beamed at her. "You can speak? Brilliant!" he said, much too loudly, causing her to clamp her hands over her ears and whimper in fear.
"Oh, sorry dear," he said, a little
Happy Hug a Tiny DayTammy was not a happy camper, in a rather literal sense. She was currently dangling over seventy feet in the air by her leg, and her head felt like it was about to explode from the blood rush. This certainly wasn't how she'd expected the first day of her camping trip to go.
~Earlier in the day~
It was that time of the year again when her parents forced everyone into the family mini van and set off for one week to go camping. Tammy usually protested that it hardly counted as camping, since the area was just three square Tmiles that were fenced in and constantly regulated. There were none of the dangers of being looted by a bear or attacked by a swarm of bees like in the movies, not that she actually wanted any of those things to happen, she just wanted to complain and possibly convince her parents to let her out of it. Needless to say, it never worked.
At least this time her best friend Amy was coming, that would (hopefully) keep it from being too agonizingly boring.
As soon as they got
