Call me Gryph for short, if you like. In-case the avatar, the name, and the themes of my stories didn't make it apparent; big Gryphon fan here.

Yearly Check-in :P · 12:51am July 3rd

At some point I'm going to need to start posting proof-of-life, just so you can be sure this isn't being written by an AI on my behalf.

Am I still writing? Eeeyup. :eeyup:
Still dead-set on finishing the trilogy? You betcha.

When? Well, you got me there. :rainbowlaugh:

I had a really excellent development in my career. It means better pay, more job security, more room to ladder-climb, even cooler work than before, and a really stellar boss and co-workers.

It is required, but there are ways to get a sponsor if you don't have one!

The best way is just to get to know a Gryphon, any Gryphon, native or convert, in any capacity (friendship, professional, romantic, etc) and develop enough of a relationship that they will feel comfortable vouching for you.

As seen in the books, this doesn't necessarily have to take a lot of time; Every individual's situation is unique. But like-kind calls out to like-kind; Humans are open books to Gryphons (as to almost any Equestrian) so for an honest, forthright individual who knows what they want, and is willing to stretch themselves for it, a Gryphon can usually make a determination in the affirmative pretty fast.

A minor spoiler, and open secret that's pretty heavily implied (and later in the books, stated outright):
No one actually 'passes' the 'test.' Being made a Gryphon is a gift, given out of love, to someone who has the faith, perseverance, and basic compatibility to survive the process. The 'tests' are less about achieving a bar, and more about both growing as an individual, growing your friendships, and making sure that you're not incompatible with the process on an emotional level.

So I had a quick question, in your stories you mentioned "sponsors" for the Gryphonization program. Is it a requirement for a Gryphon to vouch for you? If it is, how would someone go about getting a sponsor?

When I read stories I usually enjoy imagining myself taking part in the universe in some way, so I often think of the "what, when, where, why, and how" kind of stuff and sometimes I think "Would I pass the program?".

So, the devide between the Pony tribes would be like... the seperation between first cousins, but the seperation between the Dog breads would be like the difference between forth or fifth cousins? Or am I wrong here? Genetics always confused me...

There's a much stronger speciation between the types of Diamond Dogs than there is between the types of Pony. The divide between them is more similar to the divide between Pony and Zebra (and hence why each has a separate serum) than the divide between the Equine tribes, which is much more similar to the much smaller split between Gryphons and Hippogryphs.

Great question!

Hey, I have a question about your Hegira stories. If they can create a Diamond Dogification serum fot a specific bread of Dog, the Lupines in this case, then why can't they create tribe-specific versions of the Ponyification serum? One for Earth Ponies, one for Pegasus Ponies, and one for Unicorn Ponies?
