Tears of a Fallen Star Ch3
Chapter 3 Commander Bolt’s Decision Star Bolt and Commander Mist both stood at attention outside the door waiting for their cue to enter; inside they could hear Princess Celestial giving her speech to the ponies of Canterlot. Commander Mist looked at Star Bolt, “Are ya ready for this Sparky?” Star Bolt kept his stance and replied “Yes Commander, I am ready.” Commander Mist smiled “Are ya sure because you look nervous.” “No Sir, I am ready for this I am completely confident.” The commander started to taunt him “Ya sound nervous too, ya sure you’re ready?&r
Ch18 Letter From a Mare in Love
Chapter 18 The sound of a rusty slide echoed through the dreary dungeon as a guard opened the iron door behind Star Bolt, “The Princess would like a word with you! Get up and follow me!” Star Bolt sat staring at the pink bandanna that belonged to the mare he loved without even acknowledging the guard’s presence. The guard repeated himself, “Did you hear me you piece of treacherous trash? I SAID GET UP AN…” “I heard you plain as day, but if the princess wants to see me, then she knows where to find me.” The guard got angry, “Listen to me you path
Tears of a Fallen Star Ch5
Chapter 5 Two Orphans, Celestia, and New Recruits Commander Bolt stood at the summit of Dragon Mountain, overlooking Equestria. From here, he could see everything, from the Everfree Forest; to the Mild West all the way back to Canterlot, even the battleground near the Castle of the Royal Alicorn Sisters was visible from here. While Commander Bolt looked at the battlefield, he noticed that it looked like there was actually a battle happening now. How? Why? A battle taking place while Commander Bolt stands on a mountain watching? Commander Bolt tries to open his wings to fly, but they don’t budge. He tries as hard as

A Gryphus Conduit
The legends of the Gryphon lands. Ancient creatures, preserving all that which is Gryphon kind."Gryphons continued to encounter an unknown intelligent civilization, bearing banners marked with sun and moon. As their awareness of the power these creatures posses, with situations ending in grave disaster, the Gryphon high command sees no other option then to approach the conduits of all Gryphon kind.
Entities of the old worlds, wielding great knowledge and mind, standing above all. They however do not take on a leader position, acting more as guides, prophets, gurus. Many of them are spread across the lands, living in desolation for they are not fit to walk amongst those lesser.
It has only been in the most dire times and desperate needs that the Gryphon leaders ruling the banners and lands have chosen to approach the Conduits for a greater cause. One that extents across all Gryphon lands. The threat of assimilation or even extinction by the Equine Empire is not one they take lightly. Threatening all that their kind has build, the pride and honour in the blood of all. Thus they seek guidance with the only creatures that might wield words to unite them under one wing, to fight for survival not as one, but as Gryphons."
Finally this piece finished hah! Fun, although I wouldn't have mind if it did take even longer.
Wanted to do a high detailed piece again for a while. I guess I succeeded, although still a lot of it is just on the Condor. Exploring my alternative MLP world "First Contact War"
Depicting a desperate move, deemed necessary to preserve Gryphon kind in their encounter with the Equine Empire. They carry marks of the Equines (which are easily gather-able ones) as proof for the conduits about their existence, and threat.
I imagine the Gryphon species being divided into individual lands. Proud to be a Gryphon, but not willing to succumb to the word of others. That is, with the exception of the Conduits. The only ones who's words hold more power for them than anything else.
Eventually I do want something equivalent in the Equestria Equine Empire in terms of major characters. They already have Celestia and Luna to fill the same role the Conduits have.
I've been thinking about all the different bird species there are and combining them into the traditional Gryphon/Griffon formula. From Old world birds, to Owls, to maybe even smaller species. Imagine a tiny Sparrow Gryphon.
On the other side there's plenty of Felines to go with as well from all sizes.
Went with a mountain lion/Cougar/Puma/Panther/Catamount idea for this one. Although slightly white, perhaps they're just old hehe.
