She took slow, tentative steps through the darkness. There was dry, hard-packed dirt beneath her paws and a black void sky over her head. There was no sign of life anywhere... only scattered rocks and dead trees, which reached up like great jagged claws from the bleak landscape. She was searching... though she was not entirely sure what for. She recognized, however, the sense of urgency in the very air around her.
She seemed to walk forever. Or had she just started? In part she felt as though she’d been walking for only a few moments, yet she had a sense that she had been at it for far too long. Sometimes the path even seemed to repeat on itself. Was she lost? Where was the thing she was looking for? She had to find it! If she didn’t do… something… soon, all would be lost! And no matter how long or far she walked, she could never quite get there!

Hiccup rolled over and groaned. It was one of those days where he didn't want to do anything but sleep.
Hiccup stumbled out of bed, forcing himself into full consciousness, and after scraping together some fish for Toothless, headed down to the cove where the dragon insisted on sleeping, regardless of the fact that he could now sleep in Hiccup's house.
Often, he would wake up in the middle of the night, gasping for breath and clinging to the place his foot used to be, the phantom pains rippling up his legs and throughout his body, and constricting his ability to breathe. Sometimes it even got so bad that he would thrash on the ground and scream and cry until it passed. There were no limits to the time it took to be done with. He had to be careful. These 'episodes' usually happened when he was careful and ran, or did something stupid like jumping off Toothless' back. The phantom pains plagued him all t

Wheeljack had to resist the urge to barrel straight through the doctor when he was finally allowed into the room. That is, allowed in the room after Mrs. Darby, and Mr. and Mrs. Nakadai. It had been a little packed in the room, and when Mrs. Darby hurried off in a tizzy to prepare things at the house a little more, Mr. Nakadai briefly leaving for an important phone call, Jackson Anderson piled into the room with Raf, Mrs. Davis, and Arcee’s holoform.
Trying his hardest not to make things awkward with the lithe form of the black haired holoform behind him, Wheeljack had to grin when Mrs. Davis went swooping to the bed where a tired but positively glowing Miko was laying. “Ohh, let me see him, let me see—Ohh he’s simply precious Miko.

Toothless however, knew what he was doing. Spreading out his wings to their full length, he captured the wind and managed to slow down their speed somewhat. Shifting himself in the air, he made sure most of Hiccup's body laid firmly on his back, so he wouldn't end up slipping off. But now time was short.The Bond of Two - part two5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Toothless desperately scouted the area around him to see if there were any landing spots within reach. Even though he couldn't fly, he could still use the strong sea wind to glide on for at least a few minutes. Having trouble keeping his body in the correct position due to his injured tail, Toothless several times turned his head to check on Hiccup's position. Getting struck by powerful winds, Toothless growled loudly as he tried his best not letting it tip his body. Getting too occupied with keeping his balance and scouting for landing spots

When Hiccup awoke, it was still early. The sun was only just barely peeking up over the horizon, and the moon was fading away in the distance. It took him a minute to remember what had happened. Oh, that was it. He had messed up his prosthetic foot again, and Toothless had helped him. Then he had fallen asleep here. Hiccup yawned and stretched. It was nice and warm out, even though it was still early. Ha, his dad was probably still sleeping.
Hiccup bolted upright. His dad! He had stayed out all night! The scrawny brunette staggered to his feet and poked at Toothless viciously until the Night Fury woke up. Toothless purred and nudged Hiccup happily. "Not now, Toothless! We've got to get home!" Hiccup protested, straddling Toothless' back. Toothless grumbled a bit but took flight without too much complain

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
Bagginshield: Moments Captured in Travel (Ch. III)Life on the road was always hard. The Dwarves of Thorin's Company had reconciled themselves to this fact over years of travel; even Gandalf has done a great deal of wandering in his day, and was accustomed to the frugal lifestyle that the wilderness demanded. However, the fourteenth member of the band was entirely unused to going without the small comfort. For Bilbo Baggins, the greatest challenge of this adventure was not the Orcs or the Wargs; it was not the landslides and storms and giant men of stone, each seemingly set on wreaking havoc on the group of travelers. No, for Bilbo, the true struggle was the travel itself. The domestic little Hobbit, used to living a simple and sedentary life, was having a difficult time adjusting to the rough and tumble of the Dwarf's wayfaring ways. Never before had he gone so long without the simple comfort of a cup of tea and a good book. He was appalled when informed that heated baths were a commodity he would have to forgo.

There were many people walking about the street but I managed to avoid them. I was planning on heading towards the Central Station and to the underground passage but I made a split decision. Instead I made a quick left to the side street. The side street was most of the time deserted and this time it was so that was good.

One Touch. (Canada x Blind!Reader) - 1/2.A simple touch here, the sound of steady breathing against your ear, the cold nip of the winter air clashing with the warmth that radiated from the other body. Your bare fingers, stiff and raw from the harsh condition, skimmed their way across soft, lukewarm skin. The once subtle beating within your chest sped up as something slowly made it's way down your back, carefully, cautiously, until it rested upon your waist and settling there. Slowly sliding your hand down, you could picture his face within your mind as your fingers dipped in and bumped up with the muscles of his face.

Hiccup never minded that he and Astrid had only kissed five times since they had become friends and eventually started dating.
Once when Astrid kissed him when he came stumbling out of the house after fighting the Red Death. Again on one of the many times she had apologized for being so mean to him in the past. Another time when Astrid had hurt herself flying on Stormfly and Hiccup helped her walk back home. The next when Astrid thanked Hiccup for bringing everyone’s dragon’s back on Snoggletog. And finally when she simply said—much to Hiccup’s surprise—“you looked so cute I couldn’t help myself.”
Hiccup certainly didn’t mind. But he still took the time to count each one and wish there were more.
But then there was always the peskiest reason he realized they didn’t kiss more, and it was because so far Astrid had been doing all the work. Every kiss they’d ever shared in the five months since their fir

Turning franticly, Stoic's eyes broke through the fog and laid on the body of the beast that called Night fury. Hesitating at first, Stoic then staggered and ran towards the fallen creature, the worst thoughts flowing through his mind. Now standing before the dragon, Stoic's eyes traced the broken saddle back and found the dragon's prosthetic tail was missing and its wire's bent. The dragon let out a depressed, pain filled moan before rolling onto its side, breathing heavily.
Collapsing to his knees, Stoic lowered his head, his eyes falling to the ground.

Ratchet chalked it up to the spark break. He was suffering a bit from panic attacks if she was gone from his sight for too long, and it soon became a rule of thumb for no mech to be alone with her. Smokescreen had been the first unfortunate mech to bear the brunt of Optimus’s jealousy. It was a dangerous thing, and Optimus had approached the younger mech as if he had provoked him.
Every time, it was as if his breath was stopping when he saw her with someone else. It made him crazy—she was relaxed with the others, but not him. She smiled for the others, not him. He wanted to hide her from the others in his embrace, to hide her from the others’ looks, as if they were wolves on the hunt. He was so ready to become violent just for her, and with agitated stare and cutting tension he asserted himself to the others. If they desired her, they would have to win against him first.

It wasn’t just what he had done. It was the fact that Nightflier didn’t know what his father was thinking. Sure, everyday Nightstalker made sure to talk to the alienated air commander, but it was mostly just stuff about Bumblebee, or when that became too stressing, stuff about Ratchet or Cliffjumper. Never about him. Never about himself. Never about her. It was like they had a silent truce on what things they could talk about, and the family wasn’t one. Her secrets were hers; his secrets were his; Nightflier’s oppression was his own.
It bothered him. Nightflier didn’t know what to do, but he knew he couldn’t forgive him. Could he? No, no he couldn’t. He knew what growing up hungry was like. Nearly starving into shutdown.

Today, he was ready. Hiccup had grown tall and wiry, though he worked hard to keep his strength up. Boys like him-- runts of the litter- were not supposed to be strong, but Hiccup had never let a silly thing like skinny arms stop him. After perfecting his flight gear with Toothless, he started training himself to toss rocks, and to use his shield like a foreign boomerang, so that it always returned to his hand. He hadn't bulked up the way Snotlout and Fishlegs had, but at least he could carry a barrel of mead if he had to.

That had been too much like his old life. It had been who he'd been before he had dreams of becoming a Keyblade Master. Aqua was the last person he'd ever wanted to see him like that. Terra closed his eyes and resisted the urge to fall to the ground or retch on the spot. "Aqua... I'm sorry."
