Hi! I'm Lurks-no-More: a pony writer, RPG player, SF and fantasy fan, and a general nerd. I hope you enjoy my stories!

I had high hopes for this one, as I'm always a sucker for this sort of fantasy adventure / world-building stuff, and I've wanted to see the show do more with griffons ever since Gilda's initial appearance in Griffon the Brush-Off all the way back in Season One.

Happily, the episode delivers. :pinkiehappy:

The adventure part works nicely, with monsters and perils and Rainbow Dash having another gorge-related accident. The friendship part is equally good, with some quality Pinkie-Gilda moments and an adorable Dash-Gilda flashback. And the worldbuilding part... oh boy, I loved that!

In Greek mythology, the Arimaspi were a race of one-eyed people warring with griffons who lived in the Hyperborean mountains, stealing their gold. Guess what we had here? :twistnerd: I love how much the show taps into classic myth and legend, and appreciate this as a nice myth Easter egg to the adult audience, because the primary demographic sure isn't going to notice the connection.

Thank you! Also, eek. :pinkiegasp:

I feel very unqualified to take and recommend any of my fics, but... for a sense of symmetry, why not try Redeeming Blueblood?

I am following you because:

1) Of this comment;

2) anyone who dreams of weird King of Dragon Pass crossovers is alright in my book.

Should read some of your stories, too.  Any recommendations on a starting point?
