    The Teacher and the Hippogriff by Nyronus
    Cheerilee has, by and large, been detached from the events at the School of Friendship. She heard the rumors about a total meltdown at the school, and even worse ones about a diplomatic incident that followed, but by and large, she's simply wished Twilight well and went about her business of helping all the young ponies of Ponyville grow.
    Then, one day, not too long after the School of Friendship reopened, a new young mind flies into her life.

    Captain to Captain, Prince to Prince by FanficReader920
    If you told Gallus before he moved to Equestria that he would become a part of the hippogriff royal family, he'd call you crazy. Yet, here he is, and the anxiety is killing him.

    I can't believe this! How dare they forget who they're dealing with! I'm the very Element of Generosity! But to ask me to share my suite with the likes of... her? It's inconceivable, preposterous, ludicrous! They seriously think I, Rarity, fashion designer extraordinaire would be willing to share even a suite with such an... uncouth beast! Unfortunately, the Canterlot Ritz—and every other hotel—is booked solid, so it is either this or nothing. I suppose as long as I keep to myself, I will survive the week. Right?

    Good Trooper Gilda by Mitch H
    Gilda only wanted the humble things in life. Cheap rent, copious bits, the respect of her peers, the occasional juicy field-mouse.
    Being captured by the Equestrians and dragooned into the Territorials wasn't quite what she'd dreamed of, but at least the rent was free.
    And the rats were nice and plump.

    A Gilda'd Opportunity by Ludicrous Lycan

    The Bubble by Muggonny

    It's beyond what she could expect.

    Of Colors and Crowns by TheDriderPony
    Seafoam Green is an artist, well-respected in the community and held in high regard among his peers. Unfortunately for the hippogriff, his talent catches the eye of Queen Calyso, who decides that he will create her official portrait. Little does he know that this is the beginning of a path which will change the course of fate on Mount Aris.

    When the wandering Fluttershy happens upon her home, Gilda finds forgiveness in the last place she would ever expect. But will the rest of Ponyville forgive her?
    And will that include a specific rainbow pegasus?

    The Carnivore's Prayer by Cold in Gardez
    The gryphons were not always monsters. That came later.
    In the earliest days, they were our friends. They flew alongside pegasi. They shared the land with earth ponies. They studied beside unicorns. There was no fear between us. That came later too.
    Time drew our people apart, but it was not time that made them monsters. They made that choice themselves; they chose their fate. And it was the greatest gryphon who sealed it.
    He was born, many years ago, on a mountain far to the north...
