You must know… surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope, as I’d scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I would have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul. And I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
“Sexuality was a very powerful tool then. I keep my character’s homosexuality secret because you are so open to blackmail. It necessitates a certain amount of secretiveness, which goes hand in hand with spying. We talked about the idea that Guillam would have been a frozen child at one of the military public schools and there would be a distance between him and his parents, partly because of the work he was involved in. Guillam is in love with a man who’s older than him, and Smiley is another sort of father figure.” x

I’m not keen on the intention of making Artemis Fowl movies, because often (if not always) it’s crap. There, I said it! Yes, of course in many cases it turns out to be agreable. For instance the Lord of the Rings triology was not all bad, or so I would say. The thing is that often the very cool parts, or for that matter some of the important too, is simply not.. in… the.. movie. That’s just plain wrong and unsatisfying. But really, no movie can ever compare with the awesomeness of the book and how it makes you feel.
I must add that I actually do like, very much in fact, the graphic novels. The only thing that makes me sad though is that they made Artemis’ eyes brown. Omg I wanna cry!
