A Hoof-ful of Dust

You can't see the forest...


Okay, so this is Griffonstone. Yeah, I know what it looks like. Shut up. You dweebs couldn't do any better. Anyway, I'm the griffon who's gonna make it like the big deal it used to be.

Good stuff. Again you got the character voice down well. Guess it helps that a lot of these have been so distinctive, heh. It also acknowledges the lesson of the episode; you need something to rally around, some kind of totem, to be able to achieve things at times.

Given griffons' capitalistic nature, what better totem than a market?

This is really beautiful. I like how you pick up where the episode left off and show Gilda IS on the road to reviving her country's greatness, it's just going to be a long road.

Overall, great story.

Nicely done all around. Gilda may have learned a lot from Dash and Pinkie's visit, but she's still Gilda, and that quintessential Gildaness shines through here. A most enjoyable read.

You've got the voice down to perfection, the roc story ties in nicely with Gilda's reasoning, and all in all I find it hard to criticize. :raritywink:

When the feather blows out of our paw this time, we're gonna fly after it can get it back.

I think this is a typo, though.

Incredible, dude~

I was going to upvote this story, but then you linked to Blondie.
Now, I have to favorite it.

No made-up fantasy junk like what you probably think a library should be full of; this is the actual words of the kings, scratched on to paper by their claws. The real history, straight from their beaks.

:rainbowderp: Dang, son. Almost every historian would kill for such a library.

Wow. Wow. Wow. What did I just read.

Wow. There's this whole Borderland-esque shit going on in here. Wow.


I am speechless. It's been a while since I've read something that made me go wow.

+1, fav and a follow. Holy shit if you keep this up, I'll burn YOUR library down.

With views, of course.

I really like how you continue where the episode left off for this! And Gilda's POV was very nicely done!

The roc story is a lovely parable.

This was very good! Gilda's got the griffon attitude, but she's got both smarts and a heart, too.

I'd love to visit the Griffonstone museum. :twistnerd:

(Sorry, I couldn't resist!)
