Judging from your writing 'Holly Short' the ritual, you have succesfully translated the fairy writing. I also wonder if you have translated the centurian from the second book and the other language from the third. (not quite finished yet). Do you have a letter for Q in the fairy language from the first book?

Well, the picture was kindly supplied by Wotchit, so I can't take the credit for that.
But I have broken all the codes. And the way Colfer leaves things at the end of the third book you get the impression that I'll be the last. Or if not, then the next book must pick up several years later, and it'd scarely be a kid's book by then.
I've responded to all your comments on this page, and this was the last one I've come to, and I've already answered it in on of the other threads, but, for completeness, I'll do it here too.
I honest can't remember what the Q substitute was in the first book, though I'm sure there was one. And I've chucked the notes I used for the translation.
I could try to work it all out again, but I fear that life really is too short to do it twice.
I honestly couldn't be bothered translating all the message after it repeats so I wouldn't know if there is one. I just use the book symbol from the first chapter heading.
If you've translated the A.F writing, try the runes from Lord of the Rings. I think it will pick up again because the medallion is a perfect carry on.
But who knows...

I believe the symbol for Q was a ladybird sort of shape.
But how do you translate the code from the second book? Where are the clues? I want to figure it out for myself rather than look up the codes translation on the net...
Anybody want to help?
