WeakIt started with the familiar tugging within the chest area. A black cloud began to loom over my body, sucking out the sunshine and making my smile fade slowly. I don't truly have a plausible reason as to why my body suddenly acts in this manner. It's sudden, harsh and unforgiving.
I feel as if all strength has left my body. Emotionally and physically, I feel weak. More often than once I've succumbed to tears, not really understanding why. I feel that whenever I try to focus on happier memories, they're overshadowed by the darker and sadder memories I've picked up through my life.
This motion never really lasts very long, only a day at least. But when it comes, it's random, and I never expect it. Often I'm telling the people I care about that I'm fine, and I give them a smile, but inside, it's almost as if a crushing emptiness is threatening to overwhelm me.
Is this just ordinary 'blues'? Maybe. I'm no expert in emotional behaviour, but I know I often feel worthless at these points. I j

Curiosity blinked her orange eyes in a confused and bleary manner, having been drifting off from her comfortable position resting against Space, her head against his shoulder.
"What?" she asked, looking up at him with a tired expression on her face. She dragged the hand which wasn't linked with Space's across her eyes to try and combat the fatigue she was experiencing. Space glanced at her, noticing her lack of enthusiasm and seemed to notice she was tired, causing him to frown, suddenly apologetic.
"Sorry" he said quietly. "Got excited about space. We can go inside now"
Curiosity shook her head abruptly, sitting up a little straighter. How could she even think of falling asleep right now? Sure, it had been a long and tiring day, but she was finally reunited with Space. She couldn't just go inside because she was getting tired. She had to stay here an
HTTYD: Reconquest.For the life of her, Astrid couldn't remember the last time she'd felt this…lonely. It definitely wasn't the kind of merciless and terrible loneliness Hiccup used to endure for years. No. It was the bitter and sarcastic loneliness one could feel when something highly improbable and extremely unpleasant happened and when the only thought that came to mind seemed to be an existential question.HTTYD: Reconquest.3 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Astrid sighed angrily for the umpteenth time that day, cursing the Gods under her breath as she tried at all costs to avoid looking at Snotlout – and failing epically- who was currently busy trying to make it clear that he really could carry out two hundred push-ups without breaking a sweat. A shirtless Snotlout, mind you. She glanced at him and couldn't prevent her face from contorting in a sour grimace. While she was pretty certain some other girls would be impressed by the mountain of muscles the dark-haired teenage Viking displayed unabashedly, she sure as
HTTYD: Blackmail.Hiccup liked Gobber. A lot. But as he cast a look over his shoulder to see the huge amount of work that the two-limbed man had left for his apprentice, Hiccup decided he temporarily hated him just as much. The young Viking had been stuck within the heat of the forge since before the first beams of the sun could rise over the sea and the chances he would get out before it was setting again were, well, inexistent. Stoick and Gobber had left Berk together with a dozen of men in order to negotiate a trade treaty with the nearby if two hundred miles away could be considered as such- island of Crom, and Hiccup had been happy at first at the prospect of having more free time on his hands to spend with Toothless, Astrid, and the rest of his friends. That is, until he found the note Gobber had left in the forge Hiccup had actually managed to decipher the man's handwriting, which was really something to stand in awe of to make sure his apprentice would do what he was expectedHTTYD: Blackmail.4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 10Another week passed, and both Toothless and Hiccup were adjusting to the new stirrup well. It had reached the point where Hiccup had looked at Toothless with a small grin and had said:HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 104 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Time for a test flight buddy"
So now, Toothless waited as Hiccup attached his new 'cheat sheet', as he had named it to the saddle, and sat down, making sure everything was in order. Hiccup took a deep breath and patted Toothless on the flank gently.
"You ready bud?" he asked, sounding slightly tense.
'As I'll ever be' Toothless agreed. 'Don't be so tense. You'll be fine' he scoffed, though his confidence was not exactly soaring today either. Toothless took off high into the air, extending his wings so the two of them were just gliding through the clouds. Toothless looked around him as they sailed effortlessly through the air.
"Okay bud" Hiccup said slowly, releasing a small breath. "We're gonna take this nice and slow" he began to mumble to himself. "Position three no four"
HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 1It was...interesting, to say the least, to watch the humans; The Vikings who inhabited the village known as Berk. Shouts and cries were heard throughout this village as the first blast of fire hit one of the homes the humans had made. Dragons and Vikings of all sizes and shapes flooded into sight, as another raid began. The dragons fought diligently, their minds focused on one goal. Get the food, go back to their nest, yet the Vikings too fought with all their might, determined to thwart the dragons' chances.HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 14 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
One lone dragon watched the commotion from above high, perched on a solitary rock. He was of a medium size build, not the smallest or the largest of his brethren, with sleek midnight blue scales which, after sunset, appeared black as night. He stood proudly on four legs, watching his kin fight the humans, his large, elegant black wings spread wide, ready to join the battle when he was needed. Neon green eyes studied the scene before him in pure disinterest. He had no wish to attac

'Aha' he thought, smirking to himself. 'There she is.' The girl was running, looking behind her frantically, trying to spot them coming and Toothless shook his head in disdain. 'Stupid girl.

"Oh great Odin's ghost!" he heard her gasp in terror. "Oh this is-"unable to finish her sentence coherently, she clung to Toothless's leg, screaming as he flew towards the top of a large tree. He dropped her, causing her to cling onto a branch so she didn't fall. Toothless perched at the top of the tree and glared down at her irritably.
"Hiccup! Get me down from here!" she yelled, her face red in rage.

He stood, slowly uncurling his tail from his body and stretched, trying to banish the aches from his body that his earlier fall had bestowed upon him. He glanced over at his now useless tail, the left hand side having healed slightly from his cleaning. He looked around him at the canyon and his eyes narrowed challengingly at the walls of his prison. There was no way he was going to be stuck here for the rest of his life. The Night Fury's eyes darted over to the lake as a ripple in the water caught his attention. Escape was good But he needed food for strength.HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 34 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Silently, the dragon slipped over to the lake, his eyes fixed on the multiple fish swimming inside. He slid closer to the edge, staring down into the pool and dunked his head under abruptly, eagerly grabbing a single, medium sized fish and ate it in a few short bites.
'Cod!' He thought in delight. 'One of my favorites'

The teenagers, who Toothless had learned the names of,(Snotlout, Ruffnut, Tuffnut and Fishlegs what strange names humans had for each other) along with Astrid had taken up the task of teaching the basics of flying to the Vikings willing to try, deciding to leave the more knowledgeable parts to Hiccup for when he woke up.
Toothless refused to leave Hiccup's bedside, much to the annoyance of Stoick, and kept up a constant bedside vigil, Astrid joining him at times to bring him food and check up on Hiccup.

Toothless cracked an eye open and let out a displeased groan whilst Hiccup ignored Astrid's distant, yet exasperated voice and buried his face deeper in his pillow. There was no way he was getting up now. The sun hadn't even risen over the whale's road yet! And anyway, Astrid would not dare to enter his bedroom without his permission...would she?
No, Hiccup decided instantly as he got back to sleep, although imagining the contrary made a cold shiver run down his spine. No, she wouldn't. Toothless, on the other hand, was pretty sure Astrid was perfectly capable of rushing into his human's bedroom and drag him outside if she deemed it necessary. Which, judging by the way he could hear her storming up the stairs, she did. The Night Fury reluctantly got up and tried to nudge his rider awake before disaster struck, to no avail. Hiccup would not budge, and Astrid was getting closer.

Light orange eyes surveyed the night sky, their gaze stopping briefly on the full moon before moving to the stars beside it.
The young woman had never been this quiet before. She could never recall a moment whereupon she hadn't been asking a question, or finding something new around her completely exciting. She had been designed with the sole purpose of being curious after all, there was no particular reason for her to not ask questions before. Everything had interested her. Especially that lady from the tests. The one GlaDOS had been so afraid of.
When the lady had dropped her into the fire pit, she had managed to avoid falling into the burning fires and had landed on a platform instead, hurting her legs in the process. The heat of the fire had not particularly concerned her at the time. She remembered she had been designed, like all the others, to withstand temp

"Hey Toothless!" Hiccup called, walking into the canyon, a woven basket under one arm, and a strange contraption under the other. "I brought breakfast, I hope you're hungry!"
Toothless looked up at him, suddenly awake. He sniffed curiously as Hiccup dumped the basket on the group and kicked it over, causing all of his favorite fish to spill right out of it, onto the ground.
'All of this, for me?' Toothless thought, before realizing how hungry he really was. He moved forward curiously, sniffling around the fresh fish as Hiccup muttered "Okay, that's disgusting", but ignored him, even as he continued to talk. He continued to sniff around eagerly, ("We've got some Salmon Some nice Icelandic cod ") until a particularly terrible scent came to his attention. ("And a whole smoked eel!") 'EEL!'<

"My dad's back" Hiccup blurted out suddenly, his brow wrinkling lightly. "He came back yesterday."
Toothless shook his head, feeling annoyed at the mention of Hiccup's sire. He still hadn't been forgiven for hurting Hiccup the way he did.
"He acted differently than he usually does" Hiccup said softly, rubbing his temples lightly. "He acted like he was proud of me"
'Well that's good isn't it?' Toothless asked, tilting his head to the side, gods humans were so odd. First Hiccup wanted his father to be proud, now he was acting like it was the last thing he wanted.
"That's something I've been working on since the day I was born" Hiccup said in a way of agreement, and sighed heavily. "So why do I feel so guilty all of a sudden? I mean he's pro

"Not far" Astrid replied, suiting up her Nadder, which she had christened 'Blue'. (Turns out she was as good as coming up with names as Hiccup was) "Just fair enough for some peace"

Said dragon nodded in agreement, knowing his rider had been swamped with questions and requests from the Vikings of Berk. He's lost count of how many saddles Hiccup had made for them all and he was pleased Astrid had suggested this trip.

HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 7He'd never experienced boredom before. Well, he had, in small doses. But this was entirely different. Without Hiccup around to talk to him, to scratch his favorite spot, to feed him or to help him fly, Toothless found he was very bored. Before he was shot down, he'd go on long flights to relive his boredom, but down here, he had nothing. He stared up longingly at the birds circling above him, high in the sky, and felt as though they were taunting and teasing him. He let out a low grumble and looked away, trying to figure out what he could do.HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 74 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

He had no idea how long they had been at sea for, he just wanted them to get back soon, so Hiccup could get better. Toothless glanced up at Astrid who still had Hiccup's hand in her own. Her teeth chattered slightly and one arm was wrapped around herself. But being the stubborn Viking that she was, she wasn't saying anything about it, and as night was falling, the temperature was rapidly declining.HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 174 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
'Typical' Toothless snorted and nudged her with his head. She glanced up at him questioningly and he lifted up a wing and looked at it. ' Go on'
"You want me to sit b-by you?" Astrid asked, trying to hold back her shivers.
' Yes. You can hold Hiccup's other hand' he snorted. ' Just get here before you freeze to death. The last thing we need is you dying along with Hiccup's injury'
HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 9A few days had passed since Toothless had thrown Hiccup into the lake. After attempting to fly again, and failing every time, Hiccup, rubbing a particularly tender spot on his leg, had declared they wouldn't fly until he figured out a more suitable way of steering and controlling the fin. He's been drawing a lot more in his journal, allowing Toothless to watch over his shoulder, even going as far as explaining what his new attachment to the saddle, the stirrup, would help with. Not that Toothless really understood He just trusted the boy with whatever he was doing, and contented himself in watching him draw, sometimes even joining in himself, grabbing the fallen tree he was fond of using, and using it to draw in the dirt. Hiccup would often stop to watch him, then try to guess what it was that he had drawn. Yet, today, Hiccup had not shown up at all.HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 94 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Every time Stoick took one tiny step towards the staircase that led to his son's bedroom, the black dragon displayed two rows of teeth which were as sharp as could be, and snarled viciously. Toothless's eyes had narrowed dangerously, and his tail whipped the wooden floor in agitation. Every now and then, the gigantic reptile would even threaten to shoot one of his deadly bluish fireballs but changed his mind at the last second, that is to say when Stoick went away from him and the stairs he was stubbornly guarding. For the umpteenth time that day, the mighty Viking chieftain couldn't prevent himself from letting an exasperated growl escape his cursing mouth.

And, by all the gods and goddesses who lived in Asgard, the situation Astrid was facing right now was no exception to that rule. There were signs that proved it, and the main one was the absence of any living being within a five hundred meters radius a distance that was deemed safe enough to be sure you would not unfortunately end up falling flat on your face with one of the fair-haired Viking's infamous axes stuck between your shoulder blades.HTTYD: Grounded.4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Maybe it was the altitude getting to him, but Hiccup had just seen Astrid blow by him on her dragon, Freya. And when he had seen her, she looked to be crying.

himself. Toothless began to angle himself downward again, heading to a landing in his grotto. Hiccup saw no trace of Astrid or Freya there. "Why are you stopping, Toothless?"
The dragon's response was to slap him with an ear. As the dragon landed in the grotto, he was distinctly reminded or the time he had skidded across the water after their first flight, if it could be called that.

It had been two weeks since the accident, and Hiccup had noted how increasingly bored and agitated Astrid had become over the brief period of time. She wanted to be out training or flying on Blue, not stuck in bed. So, she had made several promises, pleaded slightly and made several threats before Hiccup had agreed to help her start to walk again.
Astrid sat up slowly, hiding a wince which would have indicated the discomfort she felt as her back and legs ached. She swung her legs over the side of her bed, gently placing her bare feet on the cold wooden floor with a small smile at the sensation.
Hiccup watched her warily as she grasped the headboard and pulled herself up, looking confident in her ability to be able to walk again. She let go of the headboard once she was stood upright, but unfortunately misjudged her strength as her knees buckled from the strain. Hiccup darted forward as she f

Her fingers, although not as nimble as Hiccup's, moved in a confident way, showing no sign of either hesitation or fear, and when they eventually stopped dancing across his black scales and she asked him if he was ready to play his part, he stamped his front paws on the wooden floor in anticipation, his tail happily whipping the air.HTTYD: Footprints Final Part4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Hiccup raised an eyebrow at seeing Toothless in such a distressed manner, and glanced over to look at where the Night Fury's gaze had been directed to before-hand. His eyebrows shot further up into his hairline and he turned to look at Toothless, an amused smile on his face.

But was it? It felt so real. Like a memory. Hiccup heard a soft groan next to him, and squinted in the dark to see two neon green eyes looking at him worriedly.
