Setting: The story takes place, I don't know, maybe a day after the whole ending.
A punch and a kiss. That was the only way Astrid would show any affection to Hiccup, but deep inside, the boy wanted just a little bit more, a walk by the bay maybe or a day watching the sunset or even just a quiet evening together. There wasn't anything wrong with that, right? He just didn't want everything to always end with a punch and a simple kiss.
The sun was beginning to hide behind the trees and the cold of the night crept along the west. Everyone in the village was beginning to hurry with their duties before it got dark. Not because of the fear of dragon raids, that was resolved a while ago, but by the fact that during this season the nights become longer than the days.
Near a shallow river the rhythmic cutting of an axe could be heard. Astrid had been out getting lumber since the early morning. It was a chore she ha

Becoming a Hero the Hard Way:
Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III as a Christ Figure
(This is an essay I wrote for school in March 2011)
The Christ metaphor has been a poignant part of western literary tradition for millennia. By reinterpreting the Christ story, a piece of literature can bring a new relevance to the ancient story and reveal new ideas within its meaning and mechanics. This is not a practice limited to any one genre, and can be found places where you'd least expect it to be. A great example would be the children's book How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. By focusing on human dynamics in a fresh Christ metaphor, Cowell calls attention to aggression and intolerance present in our own society and attempts to realign our perception of heroism with peaceful communications and common sense. She does this by employing several common Biblical motifs in her plotline, carefully characterizing her protagonist, and developing a setting that satirizes the modern world.&

Hiccup was tired. It was evident in the way he laid heavily on Toothless' neck and barely paid attention to his directing of his companion's tail. Not that it really mattered, they were flying gently and Hiccup could navigate Toothless now in his sleep.
The brown haired boy sighed and traced little circles into Toothless' neck as he turned his head to lay his cheek against the warm scales. He looked out over the beautiful landscape and gave a little grin at the sparkling water and the green trees and the elegant looking rocks. The sky was also turning down for the night, and the sun casted a beautiful shadow over the area and the sky was a gorgeous symphony of reds, pink

Hiccup grinned to himself as he ran back to his house after dragon training. He had successfully "defeated" a dragon without harming the beast and he was glad. He knew that if he actually hurt one of the dragons, he'd never be able to look Toothless in the face.
His smile widened at the thought of his black dragon and he hopped the stairs up to his house two at a time so he could get there faster. Today was an extremely hot day. Extremely hot. So today instead of going flying with Toothless, he had something different planned.
He opened the door to his house and went to the cellar, that stored their fish and he grabbed his pack and filled it. He

Berk, a place where it snows six months of the year and hails the other three, where nothing edible grows, and the inhabitants, the Vikings, tough men bred for killing and generally bashing dragons' brains out of their heads were not those normal drunks to go mess around with. Or else you shall find yourself in the Healer's tent and shall be treat none too gently, either.
Berk, home to the fiercest kind of barbarians there is and the devils of the seven seas. Berk, home to many kinds of dragons who gave even the Vikings problems. Berk, where only fools dare to wage war on sea or even on land.
Berk, where the weathers are always irritating. At least to a skinny blacksmith's apprentice, anyway.
"I can't see a thing," Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III groaned as he tried to look through the thick curtain of fog that had settled down on his town for the last two days, squinting to focus on subtle things that can help him tell where he was. Well, where h
HTTYD: Crash Landing_SPOILERSIt really seemed that as one problem ended, another came to replace it. Only the new problem was at least ten times worse than the first. At least, that was what was going through my mind as I closed the large oaken door behind me as Astrid and I entered my home in the village of Berk. Sounds pretty negative right? Well there are not many people who have gone through what I've been forced to endure the past few days.HTTYD: Crash Landing_SPOILERS4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
So, naturally, I felt a small tremor of anxiety rush up my spine as my father stared us both down, and something told me that by the look in his eye something was up. I opened my mouth to speak, but Astrid began before the words could leave my mouth, "...So, is there something up?"
Dad blinked, and hesitated for a moment as Astrid smiled. Apparently she had hit the nail squarely on the head. Something was up. Dad coughed, speaking as he grabbed a scroll from the table behind him and spread it onto the one in front of us, "Err, yes There is something up. Some

I'm so bored! I've been alone all morning, and I want to play. I'm still young, I need at least one good work out every day, and usually Hiccup was here to occupy my attention when I feel the energy running through my veins.
One problem, he isn't here.
Hiccup, isn't here, when I need him, when his dragon needed him to play so he wouldn't destroy things.
That reminds me, I should probably stop bouncing on Hiccup's bed; it's starting to fall apart
I snorted indignantly and trotted my way out of the house and looked around critically. Fine, if Hiccup wasn't going to come to me; I'll just come to Hiccup! Whether he wants me to or not.
I pranced about the village, not caring as I knocked into people and causing my fellow dragons to growl at me threateningly when I pushed past them rudely. I didn't really care; I was more powerful than them anyway.
Now where is my Hiccup I know he can't get very far, with him missing one of his appendages after all but whe

It was official, Hiccup was stuck. Stuck in a tree. A really big, scary, tree.
It had started this early that evening. He and Toothless were having a fun time that day, playing together and causing mayhem to the nearby animals that lived in their little trench, as well as sort of splashing around in the water (Hiccup didn't want to get his clothes wet, so they basically had a lame splash fight at the edge of the lake and barely got any drops on each other).
Then they had simply sat around and Hiccup was enjoying the view of the wildlife and plants and scenery that encompassed there little area. Then he had noticed that the sun was getting down. Getting the urge to witness the probably-amazing sunset, he looked over at the big tree that crawled down the side of the trench.
Standing from his comfy spot right by the black dragon's belly, he trotted over to the large tree and began to climb it, figuring since it looked so big and thick, it'd be easy to find a nice s

Birds are pretty. That's what I decided as I laid quietly in the morning sun and watched two pretty little birds fly around in the trees. I felt a pang of unhappiness as I realized that I used to be able to do that, but instead of trees, I flew around pillars or rocks and oceans and even the stars and the moon! (At least in my own mind). I huffed in unhappiness before I heard a rustle over on the other side of my lake (It is mine, for I live here now.) I was on edge for a second until I saw a head of brown pop out from the hole that was above rock like stair steps and I snorted dismissively. It was just that human.
The human had been stalking me for the past few days

"I don't like this game anymore!!" Hiccup cried as he ran around the lake that was in the middle of a beautifully green trench.
There was a rumble and Hiccup ducked as a black dragon jumped over his head, clearly trying to tackle him. Hiccup changed direction and ran the other direction, his little body getting extremely tired. Toothless whipped around and followed, prancing happily, clearly enjoying chasing the boy around.
'This is the last time I play tag with Toothless!' Hiccup thought, breaths puffing out of him faster than he was running. It has started out innocently enough, Hiccup had a day off from Dragon Training and of course he had run down to his favorite trench to be with his favorite dragon.
They had been bored for awhile, just lounging around like sacks of potatoes till Hiccup got the "brilliant" idea to play tag. He had carefully explained it to Toothless and the smart dragon seemed to have figured it out okay. Hiccup had been "it" first and he spent a long

It was a nice day, the sun was shining and the sky above was a beautiful blue with a few wisps of clouds that were left over from the storm that happened the other day. The ground still held evidence of the rain storm they had the other night and that was the cause of all of Hiccup's problems.
It was a few days since he found black dragon in the beautiful trench and he had just gotten enough trust from the dragon (thanks to the fish) to be down there with him, slowly getting to know each other. The Night Fury was still wary of him, but Hiccup liked the dragon and decided to name him Toothless, after his impressive ability to sheath his tee

Hiccup let out a puff of air and lifted a hand to wipe his forehead of the slight amount of sweat that had accumulated there. Toothless was fidgeting restlessly as Hiccup continued to make adjustments to the saddle and tail system. Hiccup chuckled and scratched Toothless' head comfortingly. "Don't worry, I'm almost done I was just thinking of switching the controls around so that I could control them with my fo-HIC!" Toothless jumped and looked at him strangely as Hiccup slammed a hand over his mouth in surprise.

Since the arrival of Camicazi, the Vikings of Berk made efforts in making Camicazi's party feel like home. Camicazi's warriors spent with their host eating, drinking, exchanging stories and brawling. Camicazi, for her part, spent most of her time with Hiccup and with the important members of Berk. As a visiting ambassador for another tribe, it was logical she met with the elder and chieftain of Berk. As for Hiccup, she had two reasons. First: because they were childhood friends. Second: the purpose for her visit was to enter an alliance through marriage with Hiccup.

It was a peaceful night. Or, early morning. It was about five in the morning and the sun was still reluctant to peak past the ocean and no one was up yet, except for a few dragons that still enjoyed being out during the night. The stars sparkled happily above and all the Vikings of the village were taking advantage of the fact they didn't have to be up early in the morning anymore to fight dragons.
Well, most of them.
Hiccup yawned softly as he opened his eyes, slowly waking up. He sat up and stretched his arms high above his head and his back cracked with a satisfying sound and Hiccup slumped with a groan of contentment. He looked over a

I struggled to get up, but the blood loss was making my legs rebellious and I could only make angry growling sounds as the female got close. She was grinning at me evilly, clearly believing had won. Frustration filled me as I caught a look of Hiccup's terrified face. I heard the Elder roar for the fight to stop, but neither Speedy Death siblings listened. I growled more at her as she got closer, still struggling to stand so I could fight back.
She lifted up her paw to strike me again when I heard a cry of "No!!!" and suddenly there was a blur in front of me. "Hiccup!" I roared to him. I heard Black Fury let out a grumble of surprise but Bluefire just rumbled out a chuckle. My breath hitched as the female didn't even hesitate to bring down her clawed paw and Hiccup was viciously slapped with the Speedy Death's sharp claws.
He let out a cry and was thrown to the side, where he lay still. I stared at him in angry awe before I saw red gently

Flurry ended up coming in second. When we flew back down to the Island shore Hiccup had congratulated Flurry excitedly while I was busy staring down the two Speedy Deaths that were still watching me. I growled lowly before turning my attention to the next event that the Elder had announced. This one was for the Spiky Tails. The trees that the Sharp Wings cut down in their race were set up in a row and the Spiky Tails had to hit as many of the trees with one swipe from their tail. Since the spikes were the color of their tail, it was easier if only one dragon of each color was in the contest.
I figured that during this time, it would be a good chance to pull Hiccup aside and try to explain to him what was going on. As multiple dragons began to set up the trees, I grabbed Hiccup by his sleeve and pulled him over so we were slightly shielded by the Island. He looked at me curiously and noticed my anxious expre

I stumbled forward, barely avoiding falling flat on my face.
"I don't like this game!" I shouted, wincing a little at how close my voice was to a whine. Coming to a stop, I looked around, taking in my surroundings.
The forest was at peace today, the leaves and branches of the trees swayed gently in the breeze, at perfect harmony with the wind, whilst the birds in the trees twittered busily about their businesses. Other than the faint drip, drip of this morning's rain trickling from the trees, the forest was no different than any other day.
I sighed, "Come on!" I yelled, feeling a thrill of exhilaration at the sound of my voice echoing off the trees.
Groaning a bit, I sat down on the grass. My leg had started aching, so much so that it was becoming difficult to stand, despite the fact that my leg had been lost for some months now. It did this occasionally, ache that is. Gobber had often said that this was to be expected, but I still thought it wasn't normal. I mean, how can a

HTTYD : An Eye for a LegThe smell of smoke was very strong as Tuffnut came to. The room was dark, and as he turned his head, he looked to the embers of the fire. Home? But what happened to everything else? He had been knocked out. He did not remember anything past the huge explosion of the dragon crashing down. One of the rocks had hit him squarely in the head and knocked him out cold. Shifting slightly, he got up and walked over to one of the windows and gently opened it up. He was shocked at what he saw, but he was even more shocked at what he didn't see. Shakily putting a hand up to his right eye, he discovered an eye patch. Quickly and frantically, he removed it, and touched gently. Letting it fall back in place with shaky hands, tears started to form. He had lost his eye sight in one of his eyes in the battle. He had always wanted scars. But not to be crippled. Ruffnut walked in the door abruptly, the door slamming into the side of the wall and startling Tuffnut.HTTYD : An Eye for a Leg4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The first thing that Farenheit realised was that he was falling. Very, very fast. His eyes snapped open and below he saw only an endless, crashing sea. Great, he thought, where am I ?
He quickly noted his situation. A vast, turbulent ocean below, fierce black clouds grumbled around him, and lightning shot through the air every few seconds. He'd seen better scenarios. What really puzzled him was that he was in his dragon form, which he didn't remember changing into.
Just then a sharp cry pierced his thoughts. Instant recognition made him swing round to face above him, and before him now fell six figures: Ayala, who had been the one to wail, Marcia, Stryker, Falcon, Syuzanna and Eagle all fell with him. Spreading his wings, Farenheit manoeuvred himself beneath them and caught them all on his back. Looking back at them, he saw Eagle mouth something, but the rushing gale and thunderous roaring drowned out his words. Since it was Eagle, that was probably a good thi

"Aw Come on Hiccup. It's fun~" said a humanoid, night fury.
Toothless and Hiccup were the most known people around the village. Where you say? Well the island of Berk, a place where it snows for nine months and hails the other three. For years they'd been plagued with a form of pest known as dragons which they all lived to kill. But ever since Hiccup and Toothless became friends, things started to change. People and dragons started to live together better, instead of trying to kill each other. Anyway~ back to the main story.
"No it's not" Hiccup stated.
Toothless was licking Hiccup's left ear in a cutesy manner the entire time. The two were located inside Hiccup's room, not an unusual place for the two friends as they spent the entire time together.
Continuing his little fun ear licking, "You know you like it."
