~ Flynn Rider and the Feral Princess
- Chapter 1
Flynn Rider slammed the shutters closed, finally safe from that stupid (okay, not so stupid) horse.
"Alone at last." Flynn said as he opened the satchel and pulled out the crown. He moved to a tall thin window and held it in the light, the jewels sparkling in the light. The three huge jewels that were most prominent on the crown were amazing. He found himself counting and categorizing all the lesser jewels that encrusted the crown as well. He had a buyer all ready and after ditching the Stabbington brothers he was going to take their cuts as well, more then enough for his island.
Soon enough though the excitement over the crown wore off and he looked around. The room was plain, there were a couple of chairs (the red one looked comfy enough), a wardrobe (he'd want to check that out for valuables), a spinning wheel (big deal), a neat little kitchen (he'd rummage through that, he was beginning to get hungry), a h

Eugene worked his lock-picks into the shackles. He could feel the rust in the mechanism. How many years had it been since they were last opened?
Solara whimpered as his face screwed up in anger.
"It's okay. I'm sorry, it's just a bit rusty. I'll get you out in just a minute." Eugene said trying to reassure the Lost Princess and calm himself. Then the lock clicked and the shackled fell free.
Solara just stared at her free wrist for a long moment while Eugene got to work on the other. She started moving her free wrist around, a look of wonder on her face as her arm felt so weightless without the heavy shackle on it or having to move her other arm with it.
"There you go. You're finally free," said Eugene, smiling, as the other lock clicked open.
Solara turned and jumped around the room, her arms flailing wildly as she felt so free. Eugene smiled, as he caught the crown, that flew off her head. She was sure taking delight in her new

Eugene Fitzherbert was trudging though the dark forest of the night. He couldn't stop. Something inside him pushed him to keep going.
He was carrying the Lost Princess now, she had fallen asleep long ago. She wasn't waking up, but she was breathing. The long golden hair trailed along behind them, at least it wasn't getting in the way. He had no way to carry that too, but it scared him deeply how light she was. The cloak she was wearing was the heaviest thing on her.
A lost child needed to be with her parents again. He had lost his own parents to the darkness of death, but he knew her parents still lived and where. She had to be returned home. Nothing else mattered to him anymore. A family deserved to be together.
How many times could his heart be broken? His emotions churned. Why did the kidnapper treat the princess like an animal? Worse than an animal!
She had been chained up, naked, in a dark room. As far as he could tell she had ne

Author's Notes: I don't have enough time before Christmas to put these in their own chapters, so they are all together here. The first chapter is how Margaret is feeling about the Lost Princess as she is getting the broth. Then how the lantern ceremony went down this time and finally the King and Eugene have a little talk.
~ To Save the Feral Princess
Margaret the Lock Maid was running down the cream-colored corridor as fast as she could. She couldn't cry yet. She had to get to the kitchen, the doctor needed broth for the Lost Princess. They were depending on her to save the princess.
She slid through the corners. She threw all propriety to the wind and slid down the banister. She had pledged her life to protect the princess, but right now the princess just needed broth to live.
The Worst Case Scenario was that the princess returned as an evil apprentice to Maleficent with the intent of ruling the world, not that it would be that obvious, of course. Most everything that wou

They were carrying her for almost two hours- arms bound in a painful position behind her back, feet bare, and two giant twins guarding her like two statues over her shoulder. Her long sunny hair cascading from her head, cocooned around her in messy circle while her wide green eyes trained the identical guards- one with eye patch and another with scared face. A drop of sweat trickled down in a thin line along her rounded face as they continued carrying her under the hot morning sun.
"She was an easy catch, Marcus!" Eye patch said to his twin "So bad for a princess." Marcus, the scar-face nodded; she wondered if he was the mute one. They dumped her on the grass and she settled on the ground in a heap. Two of them pulled her up, and her feet were still a bit wobbly from the blow on her head, but most possibly she was too tired to offer any resistance as they shoved her inside the tent.
'Wait there girl!" Eye patch shoved her so hard that she stumbled forward, "Until Rider meets you."

The queen and Solara found Eugene in the music room where an elderly harpist was playing carols.
"Solara, dear. Stay with Eugene. Papa and I need to finish a few things before the ceremony," said Queen Rebecca.
"Yes, Mama." Solara said, as her face bloomed into a magical smile and she rushed over to him to hug him.
Eugene stood in time to catch Solara and hold her tight, he could see the gentle smile on the queen's face before she turned and left. He liked that smile. It was so much better then her tranquil fury face. That face scared men and nations.
He remembered standing there as the queen came to stand between him and her husband as the body of the kidnapper was being taken down to be burned, her face smeared with the blood of the woman who had stolen her child. Everyone remained silent in terrified awe of the queen. He had wanted to be a lot further away than right next to her, like the far side of the planet, but he was certain

The king was asleep on his bed. His bride was behind him. It was nice and warm under the feather comforters. His eyes flew open as heard the door quietly creek open, it was a sound that stalked his nightmares.
There was the patter of bare feet and then the wumpf of a body landing on the bed.
"Morning!" said Solara brightly as she bounced slightly.
"Good morning, my dearest daughter," said Leonard, rolling over and sitting up. She might have the body of an eighteen year old, but her mind was much younger. She had been completely neglected and abused by the Kidnapper and in many ways she was developmentally behind. The headmistress of the orphanage and the tutors were praising her often and she was making progress. She was a little big for these morning attacks, but he didn't have it in his heart to reprimand her. He had missed her so much and this gave her such joy and he didn't really mind it either.
She enveloped him in one of her

The queen went into the solarium where Solara and the others were having a lesson with the Headmistress of the Orphanage, Elsbeth Hildegard. Solara was slowly reading a book out loud, with Elsbeth gently correcting her on the more difficult words. They were all facing the cheery fire that burned in the central fireplace.
The Little Braid Girls were finishing up Solara's braid for the day. They had such fun creating a new style every day. Today had an intricate pattern that reminded the queen of the tail of a fish and her daughter looked like a mermaid as they draped it behind her and spread the hair a little to form a tail.
The girls gave themselves applause since it looked so beautiful. Solara turned to see it, smiled and said, "Thank."
"Ah, ah, dear. Use a complete sentence, please." Rebecca said as she approached. They were trying to encourage the princess to speak and use more words then just grunts and gestures. They had to be quite

"Hello, Your Majesty, Your Highness. Shall we try on some boots and see which ones you might like." Said Hans Cobbler, the royal shoemaker.
Hans had made the princess some slippers and shoes but she didn't wear them at all. The queen said the princess just preferred to go without shoes. It was hard to think he couldn't please the princess.
He started with a fairly ordinary leather snow boot. Good sturdy boots suitable for spending time in the snow in. The princess watched him in wonder as he put the socks on her feet and then the boots. He had taken the measure of her feet not long after she arrived home, and had made a model to work from.
"There now. How does that fit?" Asked the shoemaker.
The princess looked all puzzled, she was trying to move her feet, but it wasn't working right with the boot on.
"Stand up, dear and walk around," encouraged the queen.
Princess Solara stood up. She almost tripped as she dragged her foot forward, the bo

Mark the Lock Guard carefully scanned the street. It wasn't crowded and people were curious about the princess but giving her space to explore. The people were trying not to scare their broken princess.
It had been a few weeks since the return, and it was hot out. Now that the princess could control her bowels effectively; the royal family thought it was a good time for her to see more of her kingdom. The evening breeze had come up and the island was cooling nicely.
Captain Taygon was out front, Sargent Gabriel was across the street, James was on the right and he was taking up the rear. Dear Margaret was near the princess ready to see to her needs.
Margaret and himself had been made part of the princess' primary security detail. The king had called her into his study about getting a complaint from the night kitchen staff. She had been frightened of being removed from the Lock Maids, when she had seen Captain Taygon there with the king

The royal family wandered the Christmas market. It snaked its way through all the squares of the island. Vendors hawked their wares: fine woodwork, and delicate lacework and richly-colored fabric. There were fried doughnuts to eat, hot spiced cider, hot chocolate, roasted chestnuts and burnt almonds. There were so many things to see.
Solara linked her arm with Eugene's and Rapunzel rode on Solara's other hip.
Rebecca and Leonard walked behind them also with arms linked, just letting their girl explore on her own.
Rebecca thought that the doll was a good thing, Solara was talking to it and showing it things and it was giving them insight into their daughter as she verbalized things she normally did not.
"Look Rapunzel, pretty candles." Said Solara, as they passed a stand filled with candles of all shapes and sizes.
A cold wind blew off Eugene's hat and after a mad dash chasing it down the street they ended up in front of a pet shop. Th

He caught her arm, the shackle clanking, "Ouch, That wasn't my idea. The Stabbington brothers knocked me out, tied me to the boat and shoved me off. They knew about you and your hair. I tried to warn you but they hit almost as hard as you do." He rubbed his head with his free hand.
"I didn't mean that, why did you cut my hair? I couldn't heal you. You were dying and I couldn't do anything about it!. You died!" Rapunzel was crying hard now.
Taking her in his arms. "I'm sorry, death was better then seeing you enslave yourself to your mother. If you were free I knew you'd be okay, I saw how wonderful you became when you were free. You are too amazing to leave trapped in a tower forever. I love you too much to let you do that even to save my own life."
Rapunzel looked somewhat mollified, "And why did you come back?"

Heaven was not what he was expecting. For example, the interior was so fluffy it reminded him of that time in the orphanage he ripped his pillow to create fake-snow for the younger kids. And he didn't really expect to see a tacky, blinking, neon-sign that read, "Heaven" in the front.
"Next!" A voice boomed from somewhere ahead, and the crowd stepped forward.
He took in his surroundings. Everyone seemed to have a dazed, contented expression on their face. This seem really weird to him. He felt good, but not that good.
On the contrary, he felt kind of sad. He looked around again and didn't see her in line, so he figured she was okay. He felt conflicted. He wanted to be with her, but also he wanted her to stay alive.
"Next!" the voice yelled again, sounding very irritated.
He missed her...and was growing kind of bored. If he was with her, he wouldn't have been bored. So far, heaven was not a very impressive place.

"How about Prince Andrew from the Stroudsburg Kingdom?"
"How can he hate you? Have you ever even met him?"
"Didn't have too...I stole his grandmother's emerald ring when I was fourteen."
Rapunzel frowned at Eugene from her spot on the ground, a list of names in her hand and empty invitations around her.
"What? I was fourteen!" he said, shrugging from his seat on the floor next to her. "Guy probably has a grudge against me. Do you want a brawl at your birthday ball?"
"All right, how about Prince Grant from the Hertz Kingdom?"
"Err...that's bad idea."
"What now?" she groaned, ready to give up on having a part entirely.
"I um...accidentally killed his dog."
"Running away from his guards," he grinned as she buried her head in her hands. "If it's any consolation, it wasn't my arrow that got it. It was a pretty old dog too, if anything I was doing it a favor."

Fergus turned the key to his strongroom and took the torch with him inside as he closed the door behind him. He lit the other torches already in the room. Putting the torch in the holder by the door he went to the small chest in the niche in the middle of the wall.
He carried it to the heavy table in the center of the room, put it down near the end of the table and sat with a sigh. He pulled out another smaller key and opened this chest. He reached in and placed the object inside on the table at the center of the table.
Fergus sighed again. He was looking at his crown. He hated that thing.
It was round, as a crown should be. There were four large emeralds around the intricately engraved band, surrounded by diamonds, pearls and other precious gems. It was as silly as it was heavy.
But it was his.
He was the king.
He was in charge.
The clan lords had raised him to be king after he joined the clans together to fight the northern invaders. Clan DunBroc

"This is really where you grew up?" she asked him.
"Yep, this is the place. St. Claire's Home For Children," he replied, looking around his former home. He gave a sad sigh, remembering how lonely he'd been ever since his parents died.
Rapunzel found an old leather-bound book, engraved with the words The Adventures of Flynnagan Rider: 101 Short Stories. She held it up. "Eugene?"
"Isn't this the book you used to read to the younger kids? The one that basically created Flynn Rider?"
"Oh, hey, yeah! It is!" he laughed, taking it from her.
"Read to me?" she asked sweetly.
He laughed, and opened up the book. "Okay. The Adventures of Flynnagan Rider "
Eugene Fitzherbert, age 8, flipped through his favorite book: The Adventures of Flynnagan Rider. It was the one thing in his room that survived the fire. He sighed wistfully at the illustrations of the handsome young man,

A nine-year-old girl woke up under a candy cane tree. There was a chocolate pond and some gumdrops. She didn't know how she had ended up there, but it felt wrong for some reason. She looked around for a while, trying to get a handle on what was going on. She knew what things were called, but that didn't seem to help.
She began to walk, in no particular direction and then after a long time heard something interesting, cheers and applause and something else the roar of engines. That roar spurred her to run as fast as she could and she soon found herself looking over a frosting covered hill at the start of a race.
There were little girls just like her getting into karts and driving really fast. She knew she was a driver like them, but she felt a little different, too. She looked at herself. She wasn't wearing clothes like they were, she just had on ...underwear, she was pretty sure it was called. That was wrong, she needed clothes.

“So how will the Althing help with the woman problem and the raiding of Scotland?” asked Hiccup.
“Well, son. At the very least we would be able to buy slave wives for the men.” said Stoic.
“Dad, that’s not a good solution and doesn’t help with the Scots.”
“No, but it is an option and is a simple answer to the most pressing problem.” Stoic held up a hand to keep Hiccup from butting in. “But there should be unattached women from other tribes available that might consider marrying into the tribe.”
“Okay, but what about protecting the Scots?”
“I am not exactly sure. I don’t really have a good understanding of the law and other nations. That’s why I want to talk to the lawspeaker and introduce you to him as well.”

Fergus placed a bow on the dinner table by his wife’s plate.
“Fergus, no weapons on the table,” Queen Elinor said out of habit not looking up from the letter she was reading.
“You know lass, I keep wondering why you say that.”
“Oh, my mum always made us do that so we would take the time to talk instead of fiddle with our weapons,” said Elinor.
Fergus thought for a moment. “If it is so important to talk, why do you read so much at the table?”
Elinor blinked. She looked up and looked at her husband, daughter and sons. Then she looked back at the letter and folded it up and put it away. “You’re right, I should spend my time with you and not with some letters.”
“Have there been anymore raids?” asked Merida.
“Not so far this week, there have been three so far this summer but putting extra men to the coastal towns aren’t stopping them. We need to do something different.

Gothel was looking at the body of the goat. She had stolen that goat to feed the baby. It looked like it had fallen down and broken its neck. How could that happen? Goats are supposed to be able to climb anywhere and eat anything.
Just then the baby started to cry. Now what was she going to do?
The baby was hungry and she was going to cry until she got something. She just didn't have anything suitable for a baby to eat. The only thing the canyon had for food was a patch of rapunzel. She found it very tasty, it was the best rapunzel she had ever eaten, but babies just find it too bitter.
She needed food and not just for the baby. She had found the tower a few days ago and was still trying to settle in. She had explored the canyon a little, but she needed to do more.
Gothel walked around the tower and climbed the stairs, the cries of the baby echoing down the stairwell.
What was she going to do now?

The black dragon stood and began limping its way behind the humans. It could not close one wing completely because of the injury. Fergus had MacGuffin’s son and the Dingwall hunk flank the dragon, ready to take it down if it tried anything as the rest of the warriors surrounded the dragon and the Viking.
As they entered the lit great hall, the thump of Fergus’ peg leg and the squeak of Hiccup’s artificial leg resounded in the empty space. Their eyes met, the question was obvious.
“A demon bear. It attacked my wife and daughter,” said Fergus.
“A dragon. To defend my tribe,” said Hiccup.
Fergus nodded, a slight respect grew between them.
Once inside the Great Hall, Elinor ordered space made for the dragon to lie down, and extra candles and torches brought for light so they could care of the wounded. The servants were giving the dragon a wide berth and many warriors stayed nearby to guard the dragon and th

“So what was your first flight like?” asked Merida casually, as she and Hiccup sat down near the fire, watching Toothless curl up for a nap. The thought of riding a dragon was so very interesting.
Toothless could fully extend his wings now. They were settling down after taking him outside to flap his wings to stretch them out. He had thrown up quite the flurry of snow from the snowstorm the previous day. It was getting a little bit warmer; at least it was warm enough to snow now.
Merida was unprepared for the reaction she got from Hiccup’s face. He smiled, not just a little awkward smile but a real all the way to the eyes smile. She knew she was seeing the real Hiccup, like when she had seen her real mum in her room just before the introduction of the suitors.

We aren’t really prepared for a blizzard,” asked Merida, drawing her cloak close, it was a little charred on the edge but she had ducked behind Hiccup as they flew through the fire. They didn’t have any food or water; they were only supposed to take an hour to look around. Eating the snow was too dangerous, it was so cold it would chill them faster and kill them. She knew they could last a day or two without food and water, but lack of shelter was a serious problem in a blizzard. However, the blizzard felt relatively warm after the terrible cold of this winter.
