One thousand years ago, superstition and the sword ruled.
It was a time of darkness.
It was a world of fear.
It was the age of Gargoyles.
Stone by day, warriors by night,
We were betrayed by the humans we had sworn to protect,
Frozen in stone by a magic spell for a thousand years.
Now here in Manhatten
The spell is broken
And we live again!
We are defenders of the night,
WE ARE GARGOYLES!
Gargoyles is without doubt one of the best shows on television (animated and non-animated) and it is with great pride that I call myself a fan.
Like any good fan, I write fan-fiction, located in the Library.
Apologies for the long wait for this latest update: I went from having no job to working two of them, which has left me very little time for working on the computer.
With the recent airing of The Goliath Chronicles, I thought that it would be a good time to take a look back at them. They weren't all bad, and some of the lines were actually pretty good. Here are a few of my favorite TGC moments:
My all-time favorite TGC line:
"Madam, they burned witches like you in the Middle Ages!"
"Mister, you are living in a fantasy world!"
--Macbeth and Margot, "The Journey"
The woman who does it all:
"Devoted wife, mother, and one-woman vigilante squad." (Hanging up phone) "What a woman." --Xanatos, "Broadway Goes Hollywood"
A classic kind of line from a classic kind of guy:
"If I'm to leave this world tonight, I'll be wanting company." --Hudson, "Dying of the Light"
A tribute to us?
"What do you know? We got a fan club!" --Broadway, "Dying of the Light"
Finally an answer to that long-pondered question: What does a gargoyle smell like?
"It wasn't hard to figure out, Hudson--late night visits only, your accent, that smell."
"Well, you tell me. Sort of like old leather and concrete, uh, but in a good way."
--Robbins and Hudson, "Dying of the Light"
The other kiss:
The kiss from TGC. Elisa and Goliath, "For It May Come True"
And where else did we finally get those three little words?
"I love you, too."
--Elisa and Goliath, "For It May Come True"
Another one of my personal favorites:
"Unless you two want to stay like that for the next twelve hours, we'd better go." --Hudson, "Seeing Isn't Believing"
I couldn't let a tribute to TGC go by without one speech from its number one villain:
"Well done, Maxwell. At the next rally you must remind me to award you a silver hammer." --Castaway, "Angels in the Night"
And finally, Goliath's closing speech:
Still eager for more Gargoyles sound bytes? I have a list of links to other pages with sounds:
Station 8's Audio Archive In the process of rebuilding the sound archive from the FTP site, but also containing other goodies such as the theme to the show--in several languages.
Raptor Woman's Home Page Offering sound files as well as pictures from one of the best fan artists on the 'net.
There is no way that I could possibly put all of the links to all of the other Gargoyles pages here (back to the problem of not having time), but here are a few of them:
If you have trouble downloading any of the above files, or any comments or suggestions for future themes, feel free to email me, Anne Jensen.
