Summary: What if Elisa and Jason met in 1995 after "Deadly Force"? He's come to New York with his siblings seeking vengeance against the gargoyles. No Avalon or anything from 3rd season except quarrymen maybe. AU. Dialogue taken from Hunter's Moon episodes.

This is my first fanfic. Constructive criticism welcomed.

Disclaimer: I don't own any gargoyles characters nor the series. This story is written for entertainment purposes. Characters named outside of the gargoyles canon belong to me.

Chapter 1

Elisa Maza was lying in a hospital bed thinking about the past 24 hours. She had just come home from a long day at work. Broadway had come over and she started to cook dinner. Then she heard a loud bang and her whole world went black. Next thing she knows, she is here in this stupid bed.

"Why did this happen to me? Of all things, I get shot with my own gun. I-" There was a knock on the door. "Come in," Elisa said. It was Captain Chavez.

Captain Chavez walked up the bed and pulled up a chair. "How are you feeling, Maza?" "I'm a little tired and weak but otherwise fine."

Chavez smiled at the news. "Good. Glad to hear it. Look, we still haven't found the person responsible for this. Don't worry though. We'll catch him."

Captain noticed Elisa's expression falter. "Maza, what's wrong?" No answer. Instead, Elisa looked at the window thinking about Broadway and the clan. There's no way she could expose what really happened.

"Elisa, what is it?" Elisa turned to face Chavez. Chavez only called her by her first name when she felt something was being withheld from her. Elisa sighed. "Maria, it was an accident. No harm was meant. Can we just let this go?"

"Why?! One of my best detectives gets shot and you just want to let this go! What do you know?" "I don't want to get into this right now. Please, trust me."

Chavez sighed. "Alright. I'll let this go...for now. But eventually, you owe me an explanation." "I know. Thanks, Maria."

3 months later

Things at precinct 23 had gotten kind of crazy. Crime on the rise meaning every police officer was working overtime. Elisa and her partner, Matt Bluestone, had to work double shifts for the past two weeks.

She hadn't the time to see the clan that much especially Goliath. She smiled at the thought. They had gotten closer since the gun accident. They were becoming best friends and lately she had been missing him. "Get a grip, Maza. There's no way you can get involve with a gargoyle. He's a friend. Nothing more, nothing less."

She was snapped out of her thoughts when she heard her name being called. "Maza, we gotta go. We got another robbery," said Matt. Elisa groaned in frustration. She grabbed her red jacket and went to the crime scene.

Two hours later, they were writing up the report. Petty robbery gone bad. Actually, robbery turned homicide. Matt noticed Elisa's tired eyes and spoke up first. "Hey, why don't you go on home. I'll finish up the paperwork." " Are you sure?" He nodded yes.

Elisa smiled and said thanks. "I owe you one." Matt chuckled. "Yeah you do. Have a good night." "You too." Elisa walked out and headed to the Eerie Building.
