This is a one in series of short interludes that will sometimes accompany a chapter. The don't really have a purpose in the main story line, but they're little scenes from around the castle that I thought it would be amusing to share with all of you.
Note: These will be put in in addition to another chapter, not in the place of one.

Interlude: An different perspective
As Artemis was walking down to Care of Magical Creatures after lunch on Friday, he noticed two Ravenclaw students siting on one of the outside benches, staring at a Tarot array. This wouldn't have so strange if one of the girls, whom he recognized as Luna from the train, hadn't been sitting in a rather odd Cirque du Soleil worthy upside down position. Now, it wasn't really his business but curiosity got the better of Artemis Fowl. He had to ask.
"What are you doing?"
Luna looked up at him.
"We're finding a new perspective. Allen is a sixth year, but she needs help interpreting her Tarot arrangements sometimes."
Artemis raised an eyebrow and looked at the other girl, who was scribbling things in a note book. She had an ink stain on her cheek and several more on her hands.
"Why is she called Allen?"
"Because my mother was absolutely mad when she named me I tell you. Mad. I mean, for goodness sake, the woman reads fanfiction nearly as much as I do."
The girl, Allen, didn't look up through the triad, merely continued writing.
"So then why Allen?"
Allen realized that she would have to answer the boy who distracting her before he went away and left her to her calculations.
"Allen is my last name. I don't mention my first name ever, because like I said, I don't know what my mother was thinking when she named me. First off, it's old-fashioned. Secondly, no self-respecting authoress of fanfiction wants to be named Mary-Sue. It's just not right. Speaking of fanfiction, I'm stuck on a very difficult part in this story that I'm writing for Fullmetal Alchemist. You see, Edward and Mustang are going to have another battle assessment and Hawkeye is about to shoot Havoc and Breda because they lock Fuery in Al's suit and Al couldn't get him out while Falman and Sheiska are researching the forty-tales of the lost City in the East. Oh, and did I mention that this is a crossover with Lord of The Rings? Yeah, so the Hobbits are there too and the Homunculi want to use the ring to make a philosopher's stone and after the assessment Ed and Al are trying to find them before the Black Riders team up the Homunculi to destroy the world. Wait," Allen's eyes lit up. "I have an idea!" She started scribbling in her notebook even faster then before; she looked like her hand was possessed by some spirit.
"I thought that you were doing you Divination homework."
Allen barely spared Luna a glance. "Story now, homework later. I have a deadline to meet. I owl my stuff to my sister and she posts it on the Internet for me. And I need to get this chapter done so shush!"
"It's alright, she gets like this sometimes. It's the nargles."
Luna untangled herself and walked off back towards the castle humming a ditty. Artemis continued on his way to Care of Magical Creatures. Well, he thought as he came up to the hut beside which their class took place, she can certainly find a different perspective.
Now everyone, be honest, how many times have we all put off homework(or work) in order to read or write fanfiction?
A quirky little character intended to make fun of fanfiction stereotypes. I thought that it was very amusing to have a character honestly named Mary-Sue. It's ironic.
Should I write more of these or scrap the idea?
Tell me in a review!
