Thought it would be fun to post up or share some funny sayings or phrases that Artemis mixes up from the series. After all she is oour favorite meanie. But even she has a few slips from time to time. So post here what are your favorite Artemis verbal slips. :)

From Artie's thread:

"They're baked bread!"
"The term is toast, Artie."


"I illuminated it."
"I eliminated it."


"What goes up must come sideways."
"What goes up must come down."

message 6: by Emmi (new)

Emmi (emmik) "He turned us both didn't he?"
Nick frowned at her nonsensical words."turned us?"
"You know, missed us up."
Missed? What the -- suddenly he understood what she was trying to say. "You mean screwed?"
"Yes, he screwed us both"

-Artemis & Nick (Ash's book)


message 7: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments HAHA. That is definitely a classic right there Emmi.


message 8: by Emmi (new)

Emmi (emmik) Its my favorite b/c it's two-fold fabulous: the heifer bitch goddess is getting "turned" & it's an Artemis-ism.

I'm sure there are a bunch more! Yay this is fun!!


message 9: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments No doubt. Hope this is helping with your story Diane.

Totally. And they're frickin' hilarious. LOL.

RAIN  (rain_holt) | 16 comments you just blow the fun out of everything
Suck artemis, the phrase is suck all the fun
Blowing sucking. Same difference.

What's your wreckage
Damage


message 13: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments HAHA. That is definitely another epic one for sure. But I've always been curious where the phrasing of "what's your damage?" comes from. Does anybody know? Is it from a show or a old way of speaking? (I.E. being from another period in time).

Apparently it was coined in the 1988 teen drama, Heathers.


message 15: by Emmi (new)

Emmi (emmik) Those are some great ones Civia!!! Love it!!


message 16: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments Oh ok. As I always thought SK meant something else entirely when I first read that in one of the books. But yea I get it now.


message 17: by Diane (new)

Diane  (dianejan3) | 93 comments From Acheron:
Artemis: Oh, this I have to see. I love it when you go for the vernacular.
Ash: Jugular.

From Dream Warrior:
Love lost is the hardest burden to shoulder, and it’s one you can never get under.


message 18: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments HA, I swear Artie needs to stop talking at times. I think there is one in Night Pleasures or another book I can't recall right now. Where she says Ash will make someone burnt bread when she means they will be toast.


message 19: by Diane (last edited Mar 10, 2011 09:23PM) (new)

Diane  (dianejan3) | 93 comments But if she stops talking...how will we list the ridiculous things she says? LOL. XD
I remember reading that she might be doing this on purpose but I can't remember where. But I don't think she doing it on purpose, I think she just doesn't care for using language correctly.

Yeah, I remember the burned toast quote, it was in Kyrian's book. XD


message 20: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments Oh I know she won't stop talking even if Ash were to beg her to. She is just too self important to quit speaking for any one, even him, lol. And naw I don't think she does it on purpose either, she is just not up on modern day lingo like some of the other Gods. After all she rarely has many reasons to be on earth and pick up the slang and other speech that is used. I'm sure she could always ask Eros and Pysche for help but yet again that is not our Artie.


message 21: by Diane (new)

Diane  (dianejan3) | 93 comments We'll thank heavens for that. She says the most entertaining things. XD

LOL. Asking for help is so not Artie.
If she does need to brush up on her lingo, she won't ASK she will DEMAND.


message 22: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments Not even demand. She will stick to the way she speaks and everyone else has to deal with it. Cause out of allt he many times Ash corrected she would brush him off and get back to finding ways to get him naked. Now in this case it will be Nick's fate.


message 23: by Diane (new)

Diane  (dianejan3) | 93 comments I remember her and Katra talking.
Artie said something like "....sumerian apocalypsi".
Kat said "I don't think they call it that" and she said "Who cares what's it called? It's the end of the world!"

Nick's fate? Do tell!
and just so we're on topic, post it on the Artie thread. :D


message 24: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments Lol ok.


message 25: by valee (new)

message 26: by Wendes (new)

Wendes | 45 comments "I have a headache" Ash

"And you've had PMS for eleven thousand" Ash

Night Embrace

message 31: by Adoore (new)

Adoore | 219 comments OMG!!!!! So funny I will have to look for some to post. I love Artie and she makes me laugh every time she makes a mistake I think it is endearing.


message 32: by Wendes (new)

Wendes | 45 comments Lol, the way she tries to adapt "modern" slang


message 33: by Charlotte, Cheesy Cakes (new)

Charlotte (charkro) | 1786 comments I know it's been a while since anyone posted here, but I wanted to share some of my favorite Artie-isms. XD


"Wow, look what the cow dragged in."
-Devil May Cry

But my absolute favorites came from Styxx:

"I want you two to kick his leg."
Acheron rolled his eyes. "You mean ass, Artie?"
"Whatever body part pleases you."


"He and my mother are the ones who moused you out."
He had a hard time understanding her. "Moused you out?"
"Ratted ... you out," Acheron corrected in a pain-filled tone.
She sighed. "Whatever. I just don't understand modern idiots."
Styxx bit back a laugh as he silently agreed.
Acheron cleared his throat. "I think she means idioms."
She turned a peeved glare at Acheron. "No, this time I got it right. Modern idiots."


". . . he went crackers."
"Nuts."
"Whatever."


Artemis lifted her chin proudly. "Yes, we threw her over the trolley."
Acheron rolled his eyes. "Under ... bus, Artemis. You throw people under a bus."
"Whatever."


Artemis smiled. "Yes, well, payback's a cat."
Acheron sighed and rubbed his head. "I absolutely give up."



I laugh out loud every time I read those. =)

Shari-amor | 5271 comments Hahahaha I LOVE those. Thank you for making me smile.


message 35: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments Definitely love these Charlotte. Thanks for reminding me of them. Artie is such a "wordsmith".


message 36: by Mare (new)

Mare Hernandez (mare9548) | 35 comments I missed that in SONO Artie didn't say any mixed-up idioms :( I was counting on it


message 37: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments Maybe she is finally learning a few things as she gets older. Or from Ash not always correcting her as much as Nick is going through his own thing.

*lol* I doubt it, but everything is possible.


message 39: by Nicole (new)

Nicole | 119 comments I just finished re-reading the last bit of Ash's book and thought I add a few more of her funny comments here.

"You are going softball."
"Soft, Artie. You mean to say I'm going soft."
"Whatever."


"The Acheron I remember would have sizzled him for half the infraction."
"Fried, Artie, damn learn to speak."

"Looks like you're broken, Acheron."
"Busted"
"Whatever."


message 40: by Charlotte, Cheesy Cakes (new)

Charlotte (charkro) | 1786 comments While re-reading Retribution, I found a couple of Artie-isms that I just had to share. XD

When Artie was making Sundown a Dark-Hunter:
"You will serve in my army of Dark-Hunters."
"Dark what?"
"Hunters. Immortal warriors, foot selected by me."
"Foot selected?'
"Whatever the term is."

And later in the conversation:
"You sell your soul to me, and you will spend eternity seeking and destroying the Daimons--the name given to Apollites who feast on humanity. Are you out?"
"You mean in?"
"Whatever. Yes."


message 41: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments Oh my gosh, I love foot selected, lol. Artie is definitely a true gem.


message 42: by Charlotte, Cheesy Cakes (new)

Charlotte (charkro) | 1786 comments Yes, yes she is. XD


Nicole *TheRoseAndTheStar* | 886 comments Hahaha foot selected!!

"What ..."


What book Artemis says "What goes up must come sideways"?


message 46: by Charlotte, Cheesy Cakes (new)

Charlotte (charkro) | 1786 comments Oh goodness ... I'm honestly not sure which book that came from, Angelica. I want to say one of the earlier books, though.


message 47: by Marie (new)

Marie | 1447 comments “Fine,” she snapped. “I won’t disturb you again. But get up with it already! - Artemis to Astrid, about judging Zarek


message 48: by Cindi (new)

Cindi (ourtrumpcard) | 534 comments Dragon mark, pg 337 hardback: "Once the dog escapes the sack, there's no way back."


message 49: by Cindi (new)

Cindi (ourtrumpcard) | 534 comments I'm really upset...without "true" Dark-Hunter books, there haven't been any Artie Quotes!!!
