Griffon a Hard Time
By Trickey Step
Gilda comes back to Ponyville looking to patch things up between her and Rainbow Dash. Gilda’s already battling her pride on the issue, but to make things worse she just happened to walk in on the girls in the middle of Twilight casting a transformation spell, changing the griffon into a pony! So, how much is Rainbow’s friendship worth to Gilda?
It’s an interesting concept to say the least and one I intend to follow. It’s a bit of a slow build, as of Chapter 4, she’s only still JUST become a pony and hasn’t even left the hospital room. The first person narrative is a little off putting since it only occasionally is written in Gilda’s “voice” and it can get a little repetitive in describing things (her pain after the transformation, for instance, is gone over far too many times).
On top of that, it’s kinda depressing. I was hoping for antics with Gilda turned into a pony and struggling to be nice to ponies that she doesn’t like for the sake of the one she does. Instead, she’s mostly either complaining about Rainbow Dash not looking at her or thinking about doing legit violence to the ponies.
I think this story CAN be good once it actually gets going, right now it just feels like its trying too hard to make a slow build. It just needs to get on with it already.

Chapter 4 of Griffon a Hard Time updated!
On the current events board of gamefaqs, we have an ongoing MLP General topic that maxes at 500 posts. Since we’re well over 400 topics now, the hosts of the gamefaq podcast show wanted to interview a few of us. For the podcast, we discuss recent gaming news and why my little pony is a good show. Please check it out to hear my awesome voice! My name for the show is Myzz.
Looks pretty nice, but that crown is a bit too much.
I absolutely love the choice of royal blue and purple shading. The crown is great since it matches so well with her natural yellow features.
Today we, over on gamefaqs Current Events, hit the 300 mark for our MLP General topics. It was first started on Feburary 22nd of 2011 and kept on going. Each topic maxed at 500 posts, so in doing that math, we made over 150,000 posts! And that isn’t counting a few of the topics that we’re closed or modded.
We’ve had some crazy times, bad times, good times, and shared personal stories with one another. It’s a great community and I wouldn’t go one day without posting there.
Yup, my story received a post on EqD!
I’ll have to work on getting chapter four out much quicker than chapter three. I think most people expect a Gilda/Dash ship, but for what I have planned, that won’t happen. Hah Ha! There will be surprises in the future chapters.
Chapter 3 of “Griffon a Hard Time” is finally completed and uploaded.
