Source: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer Premise: The sprawling sci-fi universe of the Artemis Fowl series — there are eight books in total — begins with our wacky prodigy of a lead, Artemis, kidnapping a beloved elf-fairy with the help of his bodyguard and holding her hostage for a hefty ransom. But for a good reason, kind of!
His family lost their entire fortune under, uh, weird circumstances, so he just wants to help them return to their former glory, even if it means dodging the police for the foreseeable future. Also, his criminal father has been missing for a while. Oliver however does not realise the true nature of their activities. Fagin does not explain their activities to Oliver and merely tells him to follow the Dodger who would be a great man one day.
But he does play a game with the boys through which he is actually training them to pick pockets. Two heavily made up girls called Nancy and Bet are also present. Oliver also gets his lesson in picking pockets without his realising that it is actually a training that is being given. Thus Dickens provides us further insights into the world of crime where innocents are corrupted. Academies like that of Fagin train young boys and girls to do crimes and not betray their trainers who pocket most of what they earn.
It is they who pay the price by getting arrested, hanged or transported while their masters escape. Initially all that Oliver does is to remove the identifying marks from the handkerchiefs that are stolen by the Dodger and his companions. But finally he asks Fagin to let him go out with the Dodger so that he also can do some work. He of course is not aware of the nature of their work. But the Dodger notices a prey- an old man intent on reading a book and decide to rob him of his handkerchief. Oliver realises what is going on and is shocked. Meanwhile the old gentleman notices that his handkerchief is missing and suspects Oliver who is still around while the others have run away.
His cries cause Oliver to be pursued knocked down and taken prisoner. The old man pities Oliver who is hurt but also identifies him. The concept of honour among thieves does not seem to work as the Dodger and Bates first abandon Oliver and later pursue him as part of the mob. But he cannot remember whom Oliver reminds him of. When they are before the magistrate Mr Brownlow tries to explain to the magistrate Mr Fang that he cannot definitely say that Oliver stole his handkerchief. But the owner of the bookstall where Mr Brownlow was standing rushes there and informs the magistrate that Oliver is not the culprit but another boy who has run away.
Oliver, he tells the court was too shocked at the act to do anything. The magistrate releases Oliver and unnecessarily rebukes Mr Brownlow for making a false case. Mr Brownlow is angry but forgets his anger when he notices that Oliver is lying unconscious on the pavement. Along with the bookstall owner Mr. Brownlow puts Oliver in a cab and takes him away.
Chapter Mr Brownlow lives in Pentonville a suburb of London. This place contrasts a great deal with the place in the city where Fagin and his cronies live. Mrs Bedwin the housekeeper is a very affectionate old lady and takes good care of Oliver. When Oliver recovers after along illness he wonders where he is and how he reached that place. The doctor and Mrs Bedwin reassure him. When Oliver is better he notices a portrait of a lady and is greatly drawn to it.
He feels that the eyes of the lady are looking at him with sorrow.
But Mrs Bedwin is unable to identify the lady in the picture. When Mr Brownlow comes and visits Oliver he notices a resemblance between Oliver and the picture on the wall and points out the similarity to Mrs Bedwin. Oliver at this point faints due to his weakness. But the portrait indicates to us a deeper connection between Mr Brownlow and Oliver.
For the first time in his life Oliver enjoys some kindness and attention from elders. Fagin is angry when he finds that the Dodger and Charley Bates have lost Oliver. He struggles with the boys who dodge and defend themselves. The fight stops with the arrival of Bill Sikes a 35 year old rough and strong robber who is an associate of Fagin. He is accompanied by his big white dog. Because of their arrival Fagin calms down and all of discuss what is to be done about Oliver. They want Oliver back as he knows too much about them and may reveal all to the authorities. But none of them wants to visit a police station and enquire about Oliver for they are afraid of the police.
It is decided that Nancy who has also arrived there will be fit person for the job as she is not known in the neighbourhood. She is able to find out that Oliver was released by the police and taken away by Mr Brownlow. She informs Fagin about this and he issues instructions that Oliver is to be kidnapped and brought back. Both he and Sikes decide to leave the place. The portrait that had so interested Oliver is removed as it may cause him distress and hamper his recovery. He learns to play cards and is generally happy with his life. Mr Brownlow asks him about his life story.
He likes to contradict Mr Brownlow and offers to eat his head if he is wrong. As Mr Brownlow has a good opinion of Oliver he takes a contrary view and insists that Oliver is not to be trusted. Mr Brownlow has to return some books to the bookstall and Oliver offers to do the job. Mr Brownlow has great faith in Oliver and asserts that Oliver will return in twenty minutes. Grimwig naturally offers to eat his head if Oliver were to return.
The two friends sit and wait for Oliver to return keeping a watch between them. Fagin visits Sikes to give him his share of the loot. Both of them are dependent on each other and yet they suspect each other. Another Jew called Barney is also around. Nancy comes and tries to tell Fagin that She has located Oliver. Fagin signals to her to keep quiet.
She leaves with Sikes and together they kidnap Oliver who is on his way to the bookshop. Mr Brownlow and his friend are unaware of this incident and keep waiting for Oliver. Sikes threatens Oliver to keep quiet or he would set the dog on him.
They reach the place where Fagin is waiting along with the Dodger and Charley Bates. Oliver is frightened and submits to whatever they do. They take his things and the money. When they refuse to return the books to Mr. Brownlow Oliver pleads with them to send the books back or the old man will think of him as a thief.
This causes great amusement to the gathering and Oliver who is desperate, tries to escape. He is unable to do so and Fagin is about to hit him when Nancy intervenes. She fights with Fagin but is restrained by Sikes and faints. Dick expresses a desire to leave a message for Oliver as he does not hope to live long. The request irritates Mr Bumble for he considers Oliver to be the person who has spoilt the atmosphere of the workhouse by his audacious behaviour.
Dick is locked up in the cellar and Mr Bumble proceeds to London where he has to attend some case. After attending to his work at London he happens to see an advertisement enquiring about Oliver. As a reward of 5 guineas is being offered Mr Bumble at once proceeds to Pentonville the place mentioned in the advertisement.

He meets Mr Brownlow who has put out the advertisement and Mr Grimwig. He speaks ill of Oliver and thus disappoints Mr Oliver who had hoped for a favourable report.
Mr Bumble pockets his reward and leaves. Oliver resists their attempts and implores them to let him go. But The Dodger and Charley Bates tell him that he has to do what they want and if he does not steal, somebody else will. Fagin and the other play the pick pocketing games with him and tell him stories about famous crimes and criminals. They also tell him that he is ungrateful and does not acknowledge that they saved him from dying of hunger. All this indoctrination they hope will finally turn Oliver into a confirmed thief. Fagin pays a visit to Bill Sikes. Nancy is also present.
There is not much trust between Sikes and Fagin but they know that they are dependent on each other. They discuss a plan to rob a house in Chertsey. But Toby Crackit a companion of Sikes has scouted around and has told them that the servants of the house cannot be bribed to participate in the robbery and therefore any attempt to rob will not be successful. Sikes claims to have another plan but does not give details.
He says that he needs a small boy for the job. Fagin does not want the matter to be discussed before Nancy as he is afraid that she might object to his suggestion of Oliver being used but surprisingly Nancy does not demur. Fagin feels that once Oliver is involved in a crime there will be no escape for him from a life of crime. Oliver does not show much interest and Fagin does not discuss the matter further. He provides Oliver a book where the life of famous criminals is described.
This reading causes Oliver to plead to God to save him from such a career. Due to her sympathy for Oliver she is uneasy about the plan to involve Oliver in a robbery. When Oliver appeals to her for help she tells him to cooperate as if he did not do so both he and she would pay the price. He reaches their destination in a buggy and does not shout for help because of the appeal made by Nancy. Sikes threatens Oliver with a gun and tells him that he would certainly be killed if he made any sound when they were out. Oliver expects some help from Nancy but she does not offer any.
The next morning Oliver and Sikes leave early and Oliver later notices the activities in the city. Finally they arrive at Hampton and later have supper at a public house.
Sikes wakes him up at night and they proceed to a place called Shepperton. Oliver is afraid that Sikes means to murder him and throw his body into the river. Then he notices that they have arrived at a house which is decaying and looks deserted. They enjoy themselves and force Oliver also to have some wine which causes Oliver to fall asleep. The robbers get up early and make their preparations which Oliver does not understand. They scale the wall of a house and carry Oliver along with them.
When they are near the house Oliver realises what is going on and he desperately appeals to the Sikes to not to compel him to steal. But his appeals go unheeded. Sikes opens the shutters and tells Oliver to get in and open the door of the house for them to enter.
Oliver decides to enter and wake up the people in the house so as to foil the robbery. But Sikes suddenly shouts at him to comeback as they have been discovered. Two men appear at the top of the stairs and one of them shoots. Oliver is hit and Sikes drags him back. But Oliver loses consciousness. In a repeat of an earlier situation Oliver once again appears guilty without having committed a crime, becomes unconscious and recovers to be at a place which offers peace and security.
In this chapter the scene shifts to the workhouse where Oliver was born. Mrs Corney who is the matron is thinking about her condition. She resents the fact that the paupers she attends are not grateful and that she is a widow having lost her husband years ago. Mr Bumble arrives and both of them talk about how the paupers can never be satisfied. Dickens shows the attitude of the officials managing the workhouse and how they have no intention of making things comfortable for the paupers. Mr Bumble then starts to make advances to Mrs Corney who is quite willing to be wooed.
Their lovemaking is interrupted by a call for Mrs Corney who is wanted by Mrs Sally a pauper who is dying. Mrs Corney leaves reluctantly asking Mr Bumble to wait. Mrs Sally asks the two women attending her to leave as she wishes to speak to Mrs Corney in private. Mrs Sally dies and the Mrs Corney informs the attendants that she had received no information from the dead woman. As it is, we wonder what happened to Oliver after he was shot. Fagin is at his place with the Dodger and the some other boys when Toby Crackit arrives and after having something to eat informs him that Oliver had been shot and left at the place where they had gone to commit the robbery.
Fagin already knows that the robbery has failed from the newspapers but is disturbed by the fact that Toby cannot tell him anything about the whereabouts of Sikes or Oliver. Toby points out that after the failed attempt at robbery everyone fled and did not bother about the others. He is unable to locate Barney or get any information about him or Sikes.
He also asks for a person called Monks and is told that he would come soon. She only expresses the hope that Oliver is dead and therefore cannot suffer further. Irritated, Fagin threatens her that Sikes will come to harm. He also almost discloses something else but then checks himself. Then he returns home and finds Monks the man he was looking for waiting for him. After ascertaining that nobody can hear them the two have a discussion. Monks accuses Fagin of mismanaging things and that he should have arranged it in a way that Oliver had been trapped in some crime and imprisoned.
But Fagin points out that it was almost impossible to train Oliver to commit a crime. He is afraid that Oliver is dead. Strangely Monks expresses no desire to have Oliver dead. He merely wants him to take the path to crime and says that if Oliver is dead he has no part in it. Monks suspects that a woman has been overhearing them but later on thinks that he must have been imagining things and leaves. The story now shifts to Mr Bumble who is waiting for Mrs Corney to return after attending the dying pauper. He is satisfied with the fortune Mrs Corney seems to possess. Mrs Corney returns, helps herself to a drink and the two resume their romantic conversation.
Mr Bumble proposes to the lady and is accepted. She tells Mr Bumble that she will tell him more about Mrs Sally later. There he finds Noah Claypole and Charlotte making love. After rebuking them for this and totally ignoring the fact that he had been involved in similar activities a little earlier Mr Bumble orders for a coffin and leaves. The hypocrisy of Mr Bumble is once again exposed. We now learn what happens after Oliver is shot. Sikes carries Oliver but has to abandon him when he feels he will be captured. Both he and Toby flee the place as they are being pursued by the men of the house and some dogs.
Oliver lies unconscious covered with a cape. Mr Giles, the butler in the house where the robbery was attempted and Brittles who are pursuing the robbers now retreat as they are too afraid to pursue. Oliver recovers consciousness when it is day and somehow reaches a house for help. He then realises that it is the house where the robbery was to be done. But as he is too weak to go any further he knocks at the door and collapses. Every man, woman, and child. That's why Jaime killed him. Dany did give the masters an opportunity to surrender first, but this scene proved to be important.
Not only did Tyrion draw a clear connection between Dany and her father, she also went on demonstrate her willingness to ignore his peaceful counsel. Ultimately, Daenerys only managed to end her conflict with the masters of Slaver's Bay when she let go of her advisors' strategies and decided to simply burn them and their resources. She learned that her enemies take mercy as a sign of weakness, and that power — especially in the form of dragonfire — is extremely effective.
Both of these people eventually kept their promises — but only because when Varys told Daenerys how she was failing the people, she didn't listen. Do you think that's what we had under your father? Or his father, or his? Peace never lasts, my dear," Olenna responded. I've outlived them all. You know why? Because I ignored them. The lords of Westeros are sheep. Are you a sheep? You're a dragon.
Be a dragon. When Daenerys' allies were ambushed and killed, their plan thwarted by Tyrion's lousy foresight, she leaned on the strategy she learned in Essos: Using her dragons to burn armies and destroy her enemies' resources. She has seen, time after time, that taking matters into her own hands has proved most effective. I have three large dragons. Although Tyrion and Jon Snow were able to convince her not to fly her dragons directly to the Red Keep, she still gained ground in the war by using them against Lannister armies. And until she did, the show had never truly illustrated the devastation that dragonfire could cause.
On earlier seasons, when Dany burned her enemies, these moments were framed as triumphant and righteous. But when Dany burned the Lannister forces, we saw the death and destruction from the perspective of characters we trust: Jaime, Tyrion, and Bronn. It's frankly horrifying. Together, we will leave the world a better place than we found it.
Or refuse and die. I'm not here to put men in chains," she replied. They made it. This is notable because beheading is widely considered the most humane way to execute someone for a crime. This is why Ned Stark, the most honorable man in Westeros, always swung the sword himself. In executing the Tarlys, Daenerys proved once again that she prefers to set people on fire, one of the most brutal ways to dispatch her enemies. She also proved that she has little patience or mercy left for people who refuse to call her queen.
When talking strategy with Tyrion — who had rapidly become the show's most obvious moral compass — Dany echoed Hizdahr zo Loraq's philosophy from Meereen's fighting pits. It's all my father had, and Joffrey. It makes their power brittle, because everyone beneath them longs to see them dead. Tyrion also mentioned that he promised Jaime he'd keep Daenerys from doing anything impulsive.
Tyrion added that she's been "known to lose her temper," which seemed strange at the time, since Dany hadn't been depicted as an impulsive person. Looking back, this seemingly throwaway adjective is exactly how Dany's decimation of King's Landing played out. Dany's delivery of the news was, to many fans, more egregious than the execution itself. Many leaders on the show have punished people who betrayed them, or refused to bend to their will. But when Dany informed her victims' family member of their deaths — already knowing Sam to be a kind, decent person — she barely showed sympathy and certainly didn't apologize.
For all of us," Jon, who could sense Sansa's discomfort with Daenerys, told his sister on the season eight premiere. Sansa's distrust of Dany throughout the final season was a major clue to viewers that Dany may not be the savior she's claimed to be — but this line is particularly telling. We've seen that men can easily fall in love with Daenerys, and Sansa suggested that Jon had been fooled by her facade.
Dany has said multiple times that her father was evil and her brother was cruel. But her reception of Jaime Lannister at Winterfell indicated that she still has love and respect for her tyrannical family members — even after Tyrion told her that Jaime killed the Mad King to save King's Landing. I saw the way they looked at you," Dany told Jon.
So many people have looked at me that way, but never here. Never on this side of the sea. Daenerys' isolation in Winterfell hearkened back to Aegon's comment on season five, but how she expressed her jealousy of Jon also echoed her brother's jealousy on season one. Viserys sold his sister to Khal Drogo because he thought it would bring him closer to the Iron Throne. But Daenerys commanded the respect of the Dothraki and they rallied around her as their Khaleesi. After Euron killed Dany's dragon and kidnapped Missandei, she became determined to attack King's Landing. I beg you, your grace, do not destroy the city you came here to save.
Do not become what you have always struggled to defeat. That is my destiny. And I will serve it, no matter the cost. This isn't unlike statements that Daenerys has made before, but in this case, she said she would achieve her goal "no matter the cost" — directly after Varys warned her that innocents would die. Not only did she express little concern for those people, but she seemed intent on a bloody victory: "They should know who to blame when the sky falls down upon them.
