Candy and I - LegacyCleaning the attic was simply one of those chores that was both tiring and invigorating all at once. On one hand, it was a long and exhausting process, pulling out boxes, throwing things away, cleaning The boring dull jobs no-one really enjoys. On a more positive side, if you stored memories in the attic, it was a place of wonderful way to find them again and reminisce.
That was Carys's main focus today. To search through and clean her attic, hoping for hold memories to resurface. It would be nice to just remember the old times, no matter what they were. Pulling an old box towards her, she opened it up, only to find old Christmas decorations in there. Shaking her head slightly, Carys glanced up as a small voice caught her attention.
"Mum, what's this?"
Pulling herself to her feet, the thirty-three year old walked over to her six year old daughter and smiled, bending down beside her. Wide blue eyes looked up at her, and the young brunette girl held out an old doll, which Carys took

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 - 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 15 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

"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 12Toothless and Hiccup leveled out eventually and Toothless looked below him, searching for the irritating blonde Viking who could ruin everything for them. '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. I'm a dragon Maybe you should look UP!' and he swooped down as she tried to jump over a log and grabbed one of her arms just under her armpit and flew higher into the sky.HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 125 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"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.

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.5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
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 75 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
'I wonder what Hiccup does when he's bored' Toothless mused to himself, and then glanced over at where the faded lines of his drawing of the Viking still lay. 'Oh that's right!' he reminded himself, tilting his head. 'He draws.'
Toothless padded over to where the tree he had used last time now lay and looked thoughtful. He could always draw to pass the time away. He enjoyed it the last time he did it. Toothless picked up the t

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
HTTYD: Grounded.If there was one thing Astrid completely and utterly hated above all, it was feeling powerless in front of any given situation. Every single Viking on Berk knew that. 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.5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

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.

Hiccup sat up in his bed, his breathing erratic and heavy, and his forest green eyes wide. His heart pounded ferociously in his chest, and he looking around at the still dark room. He was at home. He was asleep. It was a Nightmare.
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.
"I'm f-fine buddy" Hiccup tried to console, though the image of Astrid's broken and lifeless body haunted him even though he was awake. "Hey" he whispered, licking his lips slightly after noticing they were quite dry. "Nothing bad's happened to Astrid has it? I-I mean..." he trailed off as Toothless shook his head, and felt an overwhelming sense of relief hit him. He ran a hand down his face slowly and exhaled, pulling the covers off of him.
He'd had nightmares before. Fighting the Green Death was a common one, which often ended in him waking up sweating, the scars on his left stump of a le
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 95 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

HTTYD - My Rider- Chapter 17Hiccup didn't wake again for the entirety of the journey back to Berk. He was wrapped up to keep him warm in the harsh weather, and Toothless provided extra body heat too. 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 175 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

"You want me to sit b-by you?" Astrid asked, trying to hold back her shivers.

"Hiccup, if you ask me that one more time, I swear i'm going to-"
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
Thousand Miles Ch.1Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III stared down at the copy of the dragon manual. Not the new copy he was helping create, the old one. The KOS, Kill on Sight, version.

And it was so that his plan had formed.Thousand Miles Ch.15 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It had begun simply enough the dragons were their friends now, and the old manual was greatly outdated. Of course, who better than the first Viking to ride a dragon to fix it? And so, Hiccup had been commissioned to make the new manual. So, for a few months he'd studied the habits and rituals of the local dragons. Zipplebacks, Nadders, Nightmares, Terrible Terrors, and even the Night Furies were now detailed in the new version of the manual. But what about the other dragons? And so, the plan had formed in his mind. It was time for him to go abroad, to find the exotic species of dragon.

"It's kinda sad really" Rick stated, his voice uncharacteristically quiet. His arms were folded tightly over his chest, and a frown was fixed upon his face.
"Fact: She is going to die alone, as she will never stop waiting for him" The pink haired core known as Fact drawled, adjusting his glasses. Rick's emerald eyes narrowed in sudden annoyance as the statement, and he pointed threateningly at Fact.

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.

She was gone.
How could someone so full of life...so happy with what she had be gone in a matter of seconds?
Hiccup shivered as he tried to control the raking sobs that shook his body. It wasn't fair. What made it worse? It was his fault. All his fault...He didn't even get to apologize...
He bit his lip hard as, through the tears, he saw Toothless comforting Blue, who was whining weakly, trying to reach the broken form of her owner. It was then that he heard it. Rubbing a hand across his eyes roughly to dispose of the moisture and to clear his eyesight, he glanced down at Astrid.
He was sure he'd just... No. That was ridiculous... But he felt a tiny spark of hope rise in his chest, and he gently laid his head against the area where her heart would be.

She took in a deep breath of the sun warmed air, totally relaxed before she felt something on Hiccup's skin. Opening her eyes, she looked down to see several scars covering his wrists, along with a few old burn marks. The tiny scars ranged from barely the size of a needle, to longer and closer in size to one of her Nadder's spikes.

In retrospective, he knew he should have been way more reluctant to follow her when he'd noticed the way she and Gobber –out of all people- were exchanging mischievous and very much knowing glances.

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.
