Thanks for answering my question about "Roswell Conspiracy". Here's another one, while I'm at it.
In the completed pilot that I saw, the Banshees were ruled by Queen Mab and were described as vulnerable to cold iron (among other things). Were these two details from the original script that you wrote for it that got extensively revised by your successor? (Knowing you, I suspect that they were, but I just wanted to make certain).
(Incidentally, I thought that the Banshees in that one looked very much like Luna (the silver-haired Weird Sister).)
I had some specific kind of space iron that they were vulnerable to. (I had a name for it. I can't remember it now.) I had a whole LONG family tree leading to Siobhan (my female lead) worked out. And a time-line which they were, NOT supposed to use, but which I gather they adapted. There was a Mab equivalent in the family tree. Probably at the head of it. And there was a Shee Mother figure that was Siobhan's mother.
Suddenly, I have a bad taste in my mouth.
A rather different question from the odd ones I usually deluge you with..
You said you had watched the Anthony Hopkins movie MAGIC, which, if it's the movie I'm thinking of, I enjoyed greatly. Still, I haven't watched it in years, and I can't remember the ending(I was sick while watching it), except that it was one of those surprise interesting endings..
1) Is this movie about Hopkins playing a ventriloquist and the dummy talking to him?
2) If so, then it's the movie I'm thinking of..what is the ending?
2. It's grim. He kills himself to keep himself from killing Ann-Margaret.
Great film. Great performance. Hannibal Lecter's got nothing on this guy.
This isn't a question about TGC so much as an aspect of the show:
I know the Quarrymen was one idea you had a hand in that was put into TGC. I was wondering about the PIT Crew. They kind of struck me as a cross between a regular political activist group and those idealistic, over zealous animal lovers that I keep hearing about(y'know, the ones that believe all animals are noble and pure compared to humans, which could be but I digress). Clearly, they were the foil to the Quarrymen.
1) Did you have anything to do with adding the PIT Crew? if so, answer number 2.
2a) What were some plans you had for the group over the length of the show?
2b) Was it possible that a couple new major characters were going to come out of the group?
I had nothing to do with the PIT Crew.
ok, heres one i didnt see in the archives. i looked! im sure it must have been asked at one time, and if so, just tell me to go find it, but JUST IN CASE it hasnt been asked:
the fact that gargs carve in to the stone when they climb it should technically dictate that there are lots of little holes on the outside of the castle. we dont generally see these per se, but that doesnt mean theyre not there. did prince malcom or does xanatos have masons going around filling the holes? ^_^ (dumb question, sorry. ;P)
Kelly, I need you to audio-tape your questions. I miss hearing that voice.
Not Malcolm. And Xanatos would only initiate repairs if the aesthetic of the castle (or it's pragmatic functions) was damaged. Most of those little holes wouldn't qualify.

In the recent "Meet the Pros" chat, Cary Bates said that there might have eventually been introduced into the series a gargoyle named "Staten". Is that the case, or was he just joking?
Joking. Trust me. Joking.]
My question is: What was the joke?
If all the planets aligned just right would you ever consider doing s cross-over? Like Gargs/Batman. Gargs/X-Men. Gargs/Spider-Man Etc. There shall be a 20 year blizzard in the Sahara when if it happened, but just hypothetically...
Maybe. But not with any of the shows you named. They're all parts of LARGER Universes that I don't think would fit, unless the idea of the cross-over was like that old DC Earth-1/Earth-2 thing. Where the various characters are traveling between dimensions. Otherwise a story with these characters would have to be non-canon.
But if you want to see a Garg/Justice League cross-over, check out that parody story I wrote for DC Comics.
Does the survival of the Loch Ness Monster have anything to do with the fae or the Zeroth/Lost Race?
Again with the Zeroth? What is that? Did I use that term? If so, I don't remember.
Do any other dinosaurs besides the Loch Ness Monster survive in the Gargoyles universe?
Congrats on catching up to the queue somewhat.
This has absolutely nothing to do with Gargoyles, I promise.
Have you read any of the Harry Potter books?
I've just started reading the first one and it's so great.
I'm way jealous.
Hello! I couldn't find this in the archieves so I was wondering if you had ever seen the Gargoyles paroday Lawn Gnomes and if so if you had any thoughts on it. It aired as part of one of the Freakazoid episodes (currently being rerun on Cartoon Network). Thanks for your time and for Gargoyles!
I saw it at a Gathering. I think in '98. I thought it was mildly amusing.
