Empty CityIt was a big city, say the towering spires
Covered in still, broken clockwork;
And influential, say the surrounding villages.
Technically prosperous, but living in fear,
Say the people still looking over their shoulders
At the ghost of the towering city on the horizon;
But not because it was their enemy, say the banners
Tattered, but still showing the towers' emblems.
The city was divided, say the walls
Showing the clear line between districts
With different banners hung, and magic reigned here
Say dusty runes and scrolls long robbed of their power
They fought, say the prowling mechanical beasts
Patrolling old, forgotten borders, and they died,
Say the bones strewn about like twigs.
They were trapped, say the city gates barred from outside.
Something came through here, says the empty city
On the plain of fearful people. The cracked and fallen tower,
Says it was no mere man; the creaking clockwork
Still trying to turn says it tore out the city's heart.
And the soul? Remnants
Masks, Desire, and DragonsHiccup had never really believed in fate, being a man... boy of science and mechanics himself. However, he was sure, as he flew high above the island, that it had been his destiny to find Toothless. It could be coincidence that Hiccup's prosthesis fit perfectly into Toothless', but this was simply too hard to believe when they were soaring so high above their home. There was an amazing aura of peace around them both, and it was ripe for the breaking. "Okay Toothless," said Hiccup over the wind, "let's try something a little more fun." He stood in the stirrup, pushing down on Toothless. They both went into a dive picking up speed quickly. Right before they hit the water, Hiccup and Toothless pulled up. They sped up into the air, quickly breaching the clouds. They came out on top. The view was beautiful; the morning aurora was shining bright green all around.

View of a dragon: Night Fury 4The morning sky beckons me forth to get back up again. My eyes fluttered up and down as vision was blurred by the morning lethargy. I just don't understand why every single morning, my body feels aching all over. Slowly and gently, my body began to get back up, yawning and giving out low rumbling purr. The lapping sound of the lake got the best out of me, smacking my lips out of dryness.View of a dragon: Night Fury 45 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
In the end, I carried my heavy body over to the lapping waters of the lake and began to lick away at the clear and tasty water. As my tongue flicks at it, fishes swam off from shore, away from me and I wasn't even surprised by that fact. Once my thirst has been satiated, I looked up to the morning sky once more.
The clouds, such beautiful clouds, and the sun shone as brightly as can be. Oh, how I missed the open air. It feels so wrong for a dragon to be on the ground for such a long time and these wings are beginning to miss the thrill of flapping and gliding. Heck, wings isn't the only one that misses

HTTYD - InsomniaHiccup was in a field, walking throughout it in a dreamlike state, but mostly because he was dreaming. Back at his home in Berk, he was fast asleep in his bed, with Toothless lying on the floor next to him. Surprisingly, dragons were very warm creatures, having harvested fire in their bodies, and much of that warmth radiated out of them.HTTYD - Insomnia4 years ago in Humor More Like This
So you can see how someone like Hiccup, being scrawny, and thin, would very much admire having much warmth like that beside his bed at night. During the day, Berk was usually windy and bitter, snowing, hailing, or just covered in lots of cold mud. Nights were even worse, so Hiccup would usually be bundled up under lots of clothes and lots of blankets.
Thanks to Toothless though, these nights would warm his house to the extent that Hiccup would only need one blanket, a short skin around his waist, and a tunic with the sleeves ripped off, sort of like the way Tuffnut's was. Back in his dream, Hiccup was in the same field, looking at a distant spring of w

As some of you may already know, my name is Hiccup, and I happen to live in what may be known as the coldest place on Earth: Berk. You may wonder why live somewhere where winter is really the only season and you get hailed on for months straight every year? Well, the only way I really can explain it is that we are Vikings: the most stubborn beings known to man. But what can I say,... it's an occupational hazard!
Now it may sound all bad, but there are a few upsides that make living here tolerable. For instance, we have beautiful scenery, decent fishing, a plentiful supply of fresh water, but what I like most has definitely got be are fellow island inhibitors Dragons. Thanks to my friend Toothless, this is now the mutually shared home of Vikings and dragons alike. If you weren't aware of previous events in Berk history a couple of years back, dragons were actually the fundamental reason of all our dilemmas. It is now safe to say that that problem is over

Mmm sounds mighty interesting to have that name to be honest. Night fury Night Furry Night The avenger of the night, feel my wrath!
Oops, sorry for that. Been a playful dragon lately ever since Hiccup trained me but whatever. This, my friends, is where it all began. All of you have heard of the stories, about how a skinny looking boy (I would say that he's really skinny and compared to the rest of the Vikings out there, especially his father, I could have mistaken that he was picked up from a trash can or somewhere) managed to tame and train, the ferocious Night Fury that the whole village of Berk has ever known.

Toothless Love: Chapter OneSometimes, I questioned my sanity. I was a Deathly Storm, the most powerful of dragons, the last of my kind! And I had allowed myself to become attached to a human. And not even a human capable of caring for itself, but a nestling- barely older than a hatchling and not yet close to becoming a fledgling- Viking! He was so thin A toothpick, really. Hardly any meat on him, not very fast, or strong. But he was my human. He had shot me down, then spared me, and then saved me more than once. He gave me a new name- not anywhere near as beautiful as my real name, but I did find I prefer my new name to my true name regardless- and a new tail fin. The scrap of a Viking had let me fly again and had helped defeat the Green Death. And in the end, that was what lead me to question my sanity the most.Toothless Love: Chapter One6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Hiccup found himself with the innate ability to never sleep. Exspecially of rainy, stormy nights. The thought made his stomach churn like the winds outside. He sighed, and shifted in his bed. He then saw two huge, green eyes staring at him from the foot of his bed. Hiccup screeched and backed up into his headboard as far as he could go. The creature was humanoid, bud had black scales instead of skin. He haid a pair of long floppy ears, huge wings, and a tail that only had one fin. It has claws for fingernails, and horns resting on top of a head of shaggy black hair.
"Toothless?" Hiccup gasped.
His dragon smiled and leaped onto the bed. He pranced around on top of hiccup, examining his new body. Hiccup sheilded his eyes, and threw a pair of his pants at his dragon.
"Do us all a favor and cover up, jeez," Hiccup groaned. After a few minutes, a looked back at Toothless and saw he had them on his arms. Hiccup sighed, and carefully demonstrate
StarsIt was much later than Hiccup had hoped before he deemed it safe to slip away from the celebration. The sun had long since set below the vast sea, drenching the beach in near darkness, which all but hid him once he was a safe distance away from the party. By the time he reached the set of stone steps that led back up to the village, he could barely hear any of the voices or the music.Stars5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Noisiest wedding in the history of Berk," he muttered to himself, beginning his climb up to the village.
Up and up he went, his dress clothes beginning to feel heavy on him. He very much wanted to change into his normal clothing, but they wouldn't be acceptable to return to the celebration in. He was an adult now, so he had to start acting like one. He had responsibilities, more than he cared to think about at the moment.
Suddenly his clothing wasn't the only thing that felt heavy.
The top of the steps lead to an open grass field just before the village. Hiccup stood there for a moment, relishing the coo

Wind whistled through my ears and stung at my keen eyes. I was falling, right out of the sky; plummeting down towards unforgiving stone. The massive burning gray form collided with the island before me. With a sickening, bone cracking, earth shattering thud, dragon flesh collided with stone and burst into brilliant red and orange flame. This was going to be a bad fall.
I had taken many falls in my substantial life line. I'd seen seasons change, hundreds if not thousands of changes. From bitterly cold to colder still. Over and over again until even the drastic difference between day and night had blurred into one long endless nothing.
The fire and wind tore at the armor of scales protecting my serpentine body. My very breath was ripped mercilessly from my lungs, the waiting inferno consuming all available air. Still, I would survive this. But he would not. The boy tumbled from my back, the thin metal linking

But Hiccup could not bring himself to actually knock.

Giving a sword to a Viking was anything but trivial. Quite the opposite, really. Swords were sacred for Vikings, and ranked on top of their most personal items.

In fact, if you asked the viking what he loved more than being up here in the sky, he'd have a hard time naming something. His whole life he'd been grounded in a place that he didn't really belong to, a place he didn't like to be. Now that he had the option to fly, fly away, he could think of nothing better. He could go as far as he wanted, for as long as he wanted. Once, he and Toothless had disappeared from Berk for three days, camping on a small island to the south. He hadn't planned it, they'd just done it. Left with no warning and came back when they'd felt like it.
He'd gotten quite the scolding from his father and girlfriend, but it had been worth it. For the first time in his life he felt truly free, and it was more than he ever could've asked for.
Another reason he loved flying so much was because of his prosthetic leg. Months after the incident, he was pretty much used to the fake limb now, but he'd grown a bit of a disliking for walking. It still ached,

He stopped. Didn't breathe. His eyes flew wide open and he stared at his father, who nodded silently at his son's expression. There was a second that passed where Hiccup couldn't remember how to move. Or maybe he was scared to. Scared that if he moved, he'd wake up again. That it was a dream. A second was all he could stand though and he all but lept out of his bed and began to sloppily attach his metal leg.
"Where? When? Is he okay? Where is he now? Who found him? What-"
As the words spilled from his mouth, he went to get up, and almost tripped in his excitement. He quickly caught himself on the bed and pushed himself back up without a second thought. He was already down the stairs before he felt a hand on his shoulder, halting him just before the front door.
"Dad, I need to go, come on, we-"
He froze at his father's tone. It was serious, almost.. ominous. His mind reeled. Something was wrong,
RabbleOne of the many perks of Toothless gaining the ability to transform from a dragon to a human at will, was that he fit perfectly next to Hiccup in his bed.

The boy sunk further into their spooning; Toothless, who was behind him, was kissing down the outside of his ear. Hiccup tried to conceal the giggle that was threatening to escape his throat when he felt his dragon start to nip at his sensitive earlobe. He could almost feel his partner smirk against his flesh.
A soft, content sigh escaped Hiccups' lips. He closed his eyes feeling that his sleep was at reach.

Not that he minded gifts. Toothless often bought him something extremely extravagant on holidays, and extravagant gifts were never rejected. The luxury model Hyundai Sonota he drove in was his last year's Christmas present; new iPod Nano, TomTom GPS system, and XM/Sirius satellite radio included.

Peter was among those people.
He wouldn't have left his warm comfy armchair in front of the fireplace in a day like that if it wasn't for the fact that the local Gamestop just got a few hundred copies of a game he really wanted to get, and although he did preorder it, considering the amount of people who did the same he really wanted to make sure he could snatch a copy as soon as possible.
