The Show:Gargoyles, having the forms and faces from our nightmares but holding the purpose to protect, lived side-by-side with humans in ages long past. But given that humanity always fears and destroys what it cannot understand, this alliance was doomed. A band of Vikings sacked Castle Wyvern, Scotland in 994 with help from traitors within. They destroyed the clan of gargoyles living there, all except seven. Six of these survivors rescued the humans that despised them and were trapped in a spell "to sleep until the castle rises above the clouds." Big trouble since gargoyles turn to stone statues when they sleep.
David Xanatos--armed with knowledge of this spell--bought Castle Wyvern and transported it to New York City. He rebuilt it on top of his new skyscraper, the tallest on the island of Manhattan. And the spell was broken and six medieval gargoyles found themselves in a strange new world. It was still one filled with betrayal as Xanatos and the mate of the clan's leader reveal their villainy.
Gargoyles had three seasons lasting from 1994 to 1997. It was the brainchild of Greg Weisman, and found fans from all over the world. Most of these fans--heck, all of them--were deeply upset by Disney's cancellation of the show. Some of them got together in 1998 and formed The Gargoyles Saga, a fanfic series starting after the third season episode "The Journey" (the last episode Greg Weisman worked on) and developing some of the spin-off ideas that Greg has shared with us.The Gargoyles Saga: Gargoyles continues with the present-day adventures of the Manhattan Clan; Pendragon is the present-day adventures of King Arthur; TimeDancer is Brooklyn's forty years worth of adventures hopping around history with an out-of-control Phoenix Gate; and Dark Ages shows life at Castle Wyvern two decades before the Viking Massacre.
What You Need to Know to Enjoy My Stories:
I like to hope that my stories don't need a complex explanation to be read, comprehended, and enjoyed. But I also believe in hedging my bets. What I really want to encourage people to do is watch the episodes (or read them in the case of The Gargoyles Saga), so if you have never seen these episodes I recommend the Gargoyle-Fans Site's Episode Summaries. They give you a synopsis of the action and a review of the episode. Like I said before, I hope my stories stand well on their own but this is the back history the characters are operating within.

My A Mist of Prophecies stories pick up right after "Strange Bedfellows" starting with A Storm of Things Foreseen.
Canon in this sense is not talking about the weapon. It means the stuff that the original author came up with. In this case, since we are talking about characters, it is all the characters that Greg Weisman developed and were shown in the first two seasons of Gargoyles cartoon series.
Alexander Fox Xanatos
Captain of the Guard
The Weird Sisters
Characters that the writers of The Gargoyles Saga created. They don't mind other fanfic writers using the series as a jumping-off point, like I have done.
Harthoth, Gwenyvere's mate
Characters that I created. These guys belong to me, and I would prefer it if you didn't use them in any of your stories. But if you want to draw them, please do so and send me a copy. I'm always looking for ways to show my characters since I can't draw.
