    As often as I say: "I was a Disney kid" I often find myself listening to the voices inside my head groaning. Then I clarify that I was a "Disney PRINCESS kid". Not that I didn't occasionally catch the good ole Mickey Mouse Cartoons or things like the X-Men cartoon series, but I always thought that Disney Equaled the soft, young, cutesy cartoons back in the nineties and early two-thousands, things like Warner Bros. and Fox did more adult things. Even to think of X-Men the animated series as somewhat serious was a challenge, even though there were plenty of serious characters I felt like the series as  a whole was light-hearted when I was younger, and now as an adult I realize how wrong I was.

    I was even MORE wrong when it came to Gargoyles.
    I didn't get a real chance to watch the series- as it came out the same year I was born- but even so I saw adds for it on the VHS of things like the Nightmare before Christmas and thought; "OH WOW. THAT MOVIE MUST BE SCARY." Then I prompty went on about things like the Black Cauldron ect. And although I somewhat regret not giving it a chance sooner, it is one of those few shows I am glad to say I'm happy I discovered it in my adulthood.

    Before you judge this TV series I implore you to NOT think of it as a Disney show, in fact, do not think of it as a kid's show. The Gargoyles series dealt with very adult issues that persisted in then nineties, and even today. It makes a huge statement on things such as Xenophobia and hate, gun control, trust, Disability, has a varied cast list, a strong female PoMC Lead next to a sorta-POC male Lead. It's one of those series that doesn't need an overt amount of violence or swearing to prove very poignant points that relate to adulthood and is not at all what I expected to from Disney.

WANNA HEAR ABOUT IT?
SURE YA DO
(some spoilers be waarned)


    The actual story begins in the late 900's where you are given... Two or three episodes of prologue that's actually very entertaining. Castle Wyvern is guarded by the Gargoyles- who remain stone statues by day, and come alive at night to protect the castle from nightly invaders. In exchange the humans who live within Castle Wyvern guard the Gargoyles during the day when they're completely defenseless. None of the Gargoyles have names except for Goliath, the Gargoyle leader (and he really didn't... Choose his name so to speak he just earned it?).
    Despite the fact that the Gargoyles are loyal to the castle and to the people wherein the Princess Katherine and most of her court view the Gargoyles as beasts and monsters. Both the Head of the Guard and Goliath's currently unnamed wife believe that they aught to be treated better, yet Goliath retains the neutral opposition saying that "Their ways are not our ways", and in general is shown to be a very patient being despite the troubles the people give them.
((Here come them spoilers))

    Goliath and the Gargoyles have chased off encroaching Viking invaders, and Goliath decides that he and his mentor will go forth and scare them off (note; not kill them) while the rest of the clan stays behind. Buuut they're betrayed and diverted off the tracks of the army so far that they are unable to return to Castle Wyvern before sunset, and they turn to stone.
    Upon returning to the castle the next evening Goliath finds all but a few of his Gargoyles destroyed, the castle mostly in ruins and the humans taken prisoner. Enraged, Goliath and the remaining Gargoyles fly off in search of the army one last time to seek revenge... Meanwhile the princess and her magician are being interrogated by the leader of the Vikings and the Head of the Guard of Castle Wyvern-- who betrayed the humans in an attempts to save the Gargoyles. Princess Katherine gets taken away when the Gargoyles ambush, leaving the angry and grieving court wizard behind to blame the princess' death on the Gargoyle's returning.
    Goliath goes alone to confront the viking leader and save Princess Katherine which is when he learns of the Guard-captain's betrayal, and all three of them fall from the cliff- Goliath only saves the Princess... Then Goliath returns, upset that he cannot avenge his clan and his mate's death he returns to the viking encampment-- to discover his only friends have been turned to stone at night by Magnus, the angry court sorcerer.
    Upon realizing the mistake, Magnus explains the curse shall last until the castle "rises above the clouds". They return back to Castle Wyvern, and set up the statues of the remaining Clansmen. Goliath asks Magnus and the Princess to take the eggs in the rookery and raise them where they shall be safe, then asks Magnus to cast the same spell upon him so he may wake with his friends when the curse is complete.

    ABOUT A THOUSAND YEARS LATER
    A very rich American CEO named David Xanatos visits Castle Wyvern, and buys it out. He has heard of the legend and moves the entire CASTLE up onto the very TOP of his headquarters in New York, where, right enough, Goliath and the rest of the Gang emerge at dusk. Xanatos explains how he knows of the curse and has offered up to house and help the Gargoyles under the promise they will help him retrieve some "missing property" of his.
    A curious Detective named Elisa Maza investigates the castle upon Xanatos' headquarters and meets the Gargoyles where she quickly becomes the human to help them learn about the city.

AND THEN IT GETS SO MUCH DEEPER FROM THERE OH MY GOD. I even left a good deal of the subplots OUT and it feels incomplete- just-- Just give this series a chance, man. It's a gem and you will not regret it.

Not Dead!
So here; have a Zephon! More specifically a SARAFAN Zephon.

If you're also interested... I run a Zephon RP blog on tumblr. asktranscendentzephon.tumblr.c…





:bulletred: If you just wanna know the quick headcannon;

Zephon was an orphan raised by the Sarafan Order in the Sarafan Fortress; and prior to that he spent his youth as a kitchen boy and an interrogator's assistant. When he turned sixteen he took his first chance to become a priest- but even so without much political backing he had to get... Creative with staying ahead of his competition- which was stiff just to become a priest and only got harder as he rose in rank. He himself was known as the confessional priest- in part because he handled a good deal of the confessionals done by pilgrims and refugees, and because he could torture most effectively out of his brethren. There is often little Zephon doesn't know about within the order and he lives off of the rumors being passed around.

Once biatified; he became the patron saint of Orphans and Children. Even to the days of his death he spent his free time around the fellow orphans and children, and deep down he never wanted to be a priest. It was simply the only life he knew; so he had to make it.

SO in tandem with the Journal I wrote a few days ago heeerreeeee:

Awesome Game I May Help Write for!HEY GUYS A BIT RANDOM, I KNOW, but this is something really cool I think you'll like!
   So, with the recent vampire "revival" I was lead to the Kickstarter of Orbis Aerden- a vampire tabletop RPG in development very similar to Legacy of Kain, World of Darkness, and Call of Cthulhu, ect... It features different orders of vampires fighting and competing against each other and other aberrations in a victorian-esque land called Aerden, and is still in development.
  Now, I know I'm the type to throw my money at this; but let me explain something that may make this deal come alive for you- by backing this project you help an independent game company finalize their game and get it off the ground-- and after a certain point you can actually help write the game along with them.
Like.
ACTUALLY WRITE.
WITH THEM.
How cool is THAT?
And you know what else is cool- I'm writing for them-- assuming the project gets funded. Currently the project has a kickstarter preview u


And with permission from the creators of Orbis Aerden: Reign of the Accursed I have FULL PERMISSION to discuss what I am going to write about.

I'm backing up to the EBON CERAPH level (at least at the present), which means that I will be collaborating in making a faction for the Faustahd Order. To think of it in terms those of you who haven't seen the kickstarter yet- I'm making a branch of a vampire family of Necromancer Vampires bent on coming back from the dust.

Now, for the juicy ideas I have. A Faustahd has to be created through Necromancy- they cannot simply be turned like any of the others... Unfortunately necromancy tends to have an unfair advantage and negative affects on those brought back to life- so the Society of Horrors (the vampire society) outlawed necromancy and more-or-less tried killing off the Faustahd.

But the Faustahd were smarter than that. Many of the Faustahd fled into the wilds out away from the strong influences of the society. Living cult-like lives and secretly gathering up undead minions to come back and seek revenge for their near extinction... The problem for them is that they, like the rest of the society, over estimated how dire their numbers were.

Many Faustahd went underground in the city; living lives of people who needed to keep odd hours to avoid the sun. Morticians, doctors, nurses. Rather than hide behind the veil, the Urban Faustahd relished and hid under the noses of the mortals they served, and the society they were trying to escape. Still connected heavily to their necromancy- they also collected new members from their new position. Old politicians, influential women, teachers... Anyone and anything that could help with furthering the survival of the Urban Faustahd society.

And no offense to their wilder kin; but they aren't exactly too pleased with the idea of the same events happening all over again- this time with their own kin. In a flurry the Urban Fausted came out to the society or horrors and, rather than ousting them- offered their services. For all intents and purposes the Faustahd can touch the dead where the other Orders cannot, make abominations just as their wild kin can, using street animals like rats, dogs and cats, to combat their wilder counterparts. Tensions are high, and the Faustahd know not what will happen to them after the civil war-- then again... Who said they were trying to end the Civil war?
