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!

Letting out another growl, Toothless leaped with all his force from where he stood as a great flamethrower struck him at his feet. Dashing in between trees, he realized that trying to stay close to where Hiccup was became useless as the Timberjack kept firing one scorching flamethrower after another, not giving him a single chance to stop for air or counter her attacks with his own lightning ball. Following his movements, several trees were cut down by the intimidating Timberjack wings and smaller rocks crushed beneath her feet as she chased Toothless around in great circles. Not even hiding behind bushes or anything that could serve as a cover stopped her from firing blindly around her, making Toothless worried that if he kept running around, dodging the attacks like this close to where Hiccup was, one of the flamethrowers might end up striking him, intentionally or not. Toothless just wished he would wake up, so that he had least could get away while he averted her attention. But no

It was like the rope bridge he had been balancing on for years finally snapped and he was dangling so close to the other side it was almost too much to bear.
The winds were changing before him in every direction, but changing nonetheless.
He finally had the respect of his father and tribe—but it was fake. He finally had a friend that understood who he really was without pretense—but he was a dragon. And then there was Astrid. Did she even fit into the equation?
He took her up into the air expecting a short flight to calm her down and came out of it with his cheeks stained pink from blushing and a wide eyed expression.
Had Astrid just kissed his cheek?
It was too much to take in past her putting his arms around him when they discovered the dragon’s nest. She clung to him like she was terrified of every new thing that came her way, but all of that realization didn’t come crashing on down to Hiccup until he was suddenly faced with her runnin

"Oh, for Odin's sake "
"Hiccup? Are you up there?"
It had been such a peaceful morning. For once, there hadn't been a morning fight with Toothless, nor had Stoick woke Hiccup up. He had thought that he would finally have a chance to have a day off, to sleep. But of course, if not Toothless or Stoick were there to destroy it, someone else would. This time, it was Astrid.
Hiccup would usually be happy and excited to see Astrid, but today he didn't actually want to see anyone. Wow, did he really think this? Yes, he did. "Yes, I am." Hiccup groaned from his squiggly bed.
Astrid looked around the house, knowing that Hiccup was still in his bed. She didn't want to force him out of bed, even though he wanted him to get up. She giggled quietly at the mess in the house. You could tell that there was no woman around, to clean. There were weapons and tools of all sorts, on the dining table. There were dirty dishes, bowls and plates under them, and Hiccup's many books and papers.

The second time, it was frightening.
The third time, it made him jump.
The fourth time, it was enough to make him do a double-take.
But by the fifth time that Stoick the Vast had woken up to find a sleeping Night Fury hanging from the living room rafters, it had become downright annoying.
The dragon slept inverted like a bat, which wouldn't have been a problem, if he hadn't insisted on doing so right in front of the front door. All Stoick wanted to do was to get up, get to his morning affairs in the town, and get on with his day. But unfortunately, all this required the ability to get out of the house, which was quite impossible with a drowsy no, scratch that, dead Night Fury blocking the way. Toothless didn't snore, fidget, growl, or move in his sleep. In fact, that was the crux of the problem. The beast slept more soundly than a rock.
Cautiously, Stoick shoved the dragon to one side, wondering if this would rous

With a soft groan, Wheeljack found his patience being tested. “Hello?”
“Hi, Dad!” Miko’s chipper voice filled his audio receptors, and while he was always glad to hear her voice, he had barely gotten anything done. “How are you doing? I’ve been pretty good. Jack’s going to be coming to meet my parents coming up in June real soon, and he’ll be touching down on the fourth and staying for two nights before he leaves again. That’s nine days away! I’m so excited! He’s going to love Tokyo! Hah, and we’ll see who knows most about suburban areas then . . .”
Exasperated and unwillingly a willing listener, Wheeljack finally managed to edge in the words, “Miko, it’s been three days.” A dozen phone calls in three days.

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

“I’m not kidding, that robot cock was HUGE.”
“Who was the red mech? Did you know about this?”
“Nightflier, get your sexy ass over here! Family meeting!”
Nightflier stood rooted to the spot, halfway to the main hangar when he heard his passel of human pals calling out to him. Actually, shouting at the top of their lungs with the recent topic of gossip. His jaw was partially unhinged from the first statement; he thanked D.O.A silently on the inside for reprimanding Timber; he wondered if that HUGE statement was just blown out of proportions because they were human; yes, he knew about Cliffjumper . . . who had promised to be good; and did Boobie just call him sexy?
But mainly, his processor grinded to a stop at the fact that his sister had been caught interfacing. No, not even that she had been ca

It was a peaceful morning in the small village of Berk. Well, as peaceful as a Viking village can be. Sure, there was the stray axe thrown here, and the occasional dragon shooting flame there, but overall, the streets were quiet, the air calm. The sun was casting beautiful purple and pink rays across the clouds that lay against the horizon, and the sheep were grazing peacefully on the sloped hillside with no fear of dragon abduction. All in all, with the clear, serene skies and the refreshing wind that wound around the houses, the morning could be best described as-
Well, on second thought, the full extent of the morning's peacefulness may never be known in its entirety, because the reverie was abruptly broken by an enraged cry sounding from the tall house at the top of the hill.

The high of being a hero slowly wore off for Hiccup, and it was only then when he began to wonder, again, why certain things were so.
He had tamed a Night Fury, earned the real respect of his father—the entire village in fact—and he found himself in the constant company of Astrid Hofferson.
Was it too much to say they were dating, or were they just friends? Certainly Astrid didn’t go around giving out kisses to every one-legged Viking that stumbled out of their house, but she hadn’t kissed him ever since, and he certainly wasn’t ready to do so either.
But one thing they did plenty of was talking. Or at least, they tried to.
It was one of those things Hiccup feared every day. That perhaps—once again—he had put Astrid on too high a pedestal and sooner or later he’d realize that their ‘relationship’ was only made up of mutual physical attraction. So he’d skip the kisses if it meant avoiding that fat

It was a peaceful night. Or, early morning. It was about five in the morning and the sun was still reluctant to peak past the ocean and no one was up yet, except for a few dragons that still enjoyed being out during the night. The stars sparkled happily above and all the Vikings of the village were taking advantage of the fact they didn't have to be up early in the morning anymore to fight dragons.
Well, most of them.
Hiccup yawned softly as he opened his eyes, slowly waking up. He sat up and stretched his arms high above his head and his back cracked with a satisfying sound and Hiccup slumped with a groan of contentment. He looked over a

It was official, Hiccup was stuck. Stuck in a tree. A really big, scary, tree.
It had started this early that evening. He and Toothless were having a fun time that day, playing together and causing mayhem to the nearby animals that lived in their little trench, as well as sort of splashing around in the water (Hiccup didn't want to get his clothes wet, so they basically had a lame splash fight at the edge of the lake and barely got any drops on each other).
Then they had simply sat around and Hiccup was enjoying the view of the wildlife and plants and scenery that encompassed there little area. Then he had noticed that the sun was getting down. Getting the urge to witness the probably-amazing sunset, he looked over at the big tree that crawled down the side of the trench.
Standing from his comfy spot right by the black dragon's belly, he trotted over to the large tree and began to climb it, figuring since it looked so big and thick, it'd be easy to find a nice s

"It's alright! I have Toothless!" he said with a smile, before asking for how much they needed.

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.

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
