The Artemis Fowl books advocate for the environment, deal with misogyny in the workplace and the need for feminism, and has some of the best character development arcs like ever over the span of eight books. Also, there’s magic and fairies with guns and time travel and a whole lot of sarcasm and really no downside to reading them

Thinking about how Rhys had to bear with Feyre’s hatred in order to keep her alive throughout the series makes me feel things. You know what else makes me feel things?

Part 2 witch!au!!! I wanna know more about their deal and why Neil's not Andrews familiar!

Neil is not Andrew’s familiar because he is not a spirit. Familiars are essentially the essence of a witch’s spirit and inner self taking the form of an animal. Gaining a familiar is a complicated process and requires blood magic, and Neil wasn’t summoned to Andrew’s side. It’s kind of hard to explain, but you know *jazz hands* magic.

As for the deal, it went something like this:

  • it’s the beginning of summer and andrew is tired
  • being around annoyances for nine months was exhausting and the only reason andrew is letting kevin inside his car is because of their promise
  • kevin stays in the car when andrew goes out
  • not too far but far enough that andrew can pretend to be alone
  • except there’s a cat in the tree above him that’s practically suffocating in binding magic
  • really, it’s a surprise that the cat’s even keeping himself upright
  • andrew… well, he’s not about to let a cat suffer so he takes the cat and does some magic to dispel the bind
    • side note: binding magic isn’t bad in any way
    • it’s usually used to make teammates/partners stronger
    • it can also be used as a sort of marriage ceremony
    • typically, binding magic isn’t permanent and requires the consent of all parties
    • however, the deal with the cat was that a taboo sort of binding spell was used so that he wouldn’t be able to escape his master without causing pain unto himself
    • that spell is not public knowledge–only the influential are meant to know about it
    • back to the story

A very close friend of mine works for a company that sold themselves to a larger company last year. They instituted a two year transition plan during which time, the new company hired the old owners to run the company throughout the transition period in order to maintain some “semblance of normalcy”. The new company that bought them out started out slowly by sending their top executives to meetings and they have been very gradually starting to institute change. Within this next year my friend will find out the status of her future employment (and she is optimistic based upon what she has slowly learned of the new firm). Meanwhile, the previous owners will step down at the end of the set timeframe and things could change drastically at that time. The kicker is that IF that happens, the new company will have fully integrated themselves and learned all the ins and outs of the business by then. Basically, while my friend (and her colleagues) feel like their careers are safe (and I truly hope that they are for her sake), the new company has set themselves up for success because when the time comes to fully move in, and takeover they will be 100% ready to go.
I have no idea if this is relevant to what might be happening with Syco, but I think it’s worth noting. Retaining original owners or executives is a fairly common practice during a transition/buyout for big business. Of course, sometimes takeovers are hostile and drastic change implemented instantly, and these are just two examples of many things that can happen in the world of business. Just something to consider.

Does Luisa actually exist anymore? I feel like the writers often forget that she does until they want somebody for Rose to majorly screw over
