    A weird little EQG/Buffy story idea

    So, had this idea pop into my head a couple of days ago, and thought I would try writing up just to get it down on paper. I should say that if you’re not familiar with Buffy, this might be more then a bit confusing.

    Health, Mental and Physical

    To start with, this has been the longest pause in my writing since then late 90s, and it’s more frustrating than anything else. I feel like I can’t make any forward progress on any ideas, even though I’ve been starting to get more of them of late. I need to do something to change that, but it’s not as easy as just wanting to do something. Motivation and Action turns out to be quite different

    I haven't writen anything in two months

    I've not managed to put down a single word in the last two months, which might not seem all that bad, that but was after after four and a half years of daily writing. I managed to write something every day even when dealing with illness, loss, and the international dateline. Not that things were doing all the well in the months before, as I've been dealing with being just completely emotionally

    Unplaned Car Purchase

    Not to but to fine a point on it, but my car died over the weekend. I've had in for near 18 years at this point (and had < 100k miles on it) and it just simply died. Something is messed up with the electrical system, and I can't started it, or even jump it. I had replaced the battery a few months ago, and everything was working just fine until it wasn't. Thankfully it died at home, so I didn't

New chapters coming very soon · 12:25am Feb 6th, 2022

No, the story isn't dead! I have a new chapter up on my patreon, which should be posting here in a week or two give or take. Hopefully with more to come a bit faster then before!

In addition, I could also use some griffon OCs if anyone wants to volunteer one. I doubt they will got more then name checked with one or two lines of dialog, but it will be better then just generic griffon #27. I can't promise anyone will be used, but it would be a great help to have.

Yay, looking forward to new chapters. Funny you should ask for griffon OC's, as I have one, Gavin that you're free to use.

Eeeeee!!!! More gilda is great!!!

I has a griffon reference sheet but it is mature in content. Not sure if ya are okay with that. I can link it to ya privately 8f so.

Well I’ve had the concept of a griffin named Grizzelda for a while now.

She’s an elderly classic lion-eagle griffon with coat and feathers dulled with age covered in old battle scars.

Her backstory is that she left Griffonstone in her youth dreaming of becoming a great adventurer. Circumstances and the reality of survival out away from civilization caused her to fall in with a band of mercenaries. She discovered she had an aptitude for the lifestyle and she rose through the ranks over the years and was elected captain of the band when the previous captain a Minotaur named Steel Grip caught a freak crossbow bolt through the eye-slit of his helmet while clearing out a bandit camp. She was very successful and built a formidable reputation over decades. Eventually age and accumulated injuries caught up with her and she stepped down because the nature of the band required a “lead from the front,” style that she wasn’t physically capable of anymore. She honestly expected to go like Steel Grip at some point and the fact that she survived to retirement caught her flat-footed and directionless. Then she hears about the supposed “Griffonstone renaissance,” and decides she might as well check it out for lack of anything better to do.

Strengths: Utterly unfazeable, experienced in almost every form of combat against almost every species, superb contract negotiator

Weaknesses: Has almost completely forgotten what ordinary civilian life is like, intellectually knows that her body can’t do what it used to but hasn’t internalized that fully yet and could overexert herself if not careful, is gruff and cantankerous even by griffin standards

Rayna, osprey+snow leopard, comes from a small tribe that lives on a mountainside to the north of Griffonstone. Professional monster hunter.

You should cameo Graciella.

I've got Snowfall a motherly hen with white eagle features leading into sky blue and the body of a panther.
