An excellent short story. Artemis is a totally awesome character and you captured him really well. Your Holly is pretty good too. This scene was believable.

I had half an expectation that this would continue after the sentimental and thoughtful ending, with Foaly breaking back in and just asking "So, what did he mean by 'elf-kissing'?"

This is so perfect, I don't like fanfiction in general, but I totally can see this happen. I think you kept the charakters perfectly.

Wonderful and detailed character analysis. Would love to hear Artemis' thoughts on this exchange...

A thoughtful story and interesting too. One of my favourite fanfiction's as well.

It was the dry bite that did it, I think. Not that this story hadn't set itself apart from nearly all others even before that moment of greatness; it's rare indeed to see someone posing the right questions about good and evil, much less posing them so artfully. What does it mean for a villain to be redeemed? Must some of his villainous gifts necessarily be suppressed, or can all of them - even the most destructive - be turned to good ends? And what, in any event, are the ultimate loyalties by which ends are rightly judged to be good or evil? Even when ff is legitimately thought-provoking, it rarely provokes thoughts that good.
But then came Foaly's gentle reminder of just how subtle the matter really is, and I knew that I was reading something truly unique. A good metaphor always contains unexpected truths, but the power to see those truths and bring them forth at just the right moment - and to make it look effortless and inevitable: that's the mark of greatness. I only hope you can regard my Favorites list as a somewhat worthy setting for such a jewel.

Brilliant! A very fitting way to describe Holly and Artemis - the bit with Foaly cracked me up!
Fantastically written, I loved it

Very nice job with the extended metaphor. They're right in character, but canon tends to gloss over quiet moments like these.
