Jack landed on his feet in the backyard of a house, he shook his head when he noticed that Rapunzel's death grip on him didn't release. "Rapunzel?"
"You can let go now…"
"Oh! Sorry…" Rapunzel let go of Jack and untangled locks of her hair off of him.
"We really need to fix that hair problem of yours." Jack said behind a laugh. "Don't you think it's a little too long—?"
"It's fine." Rapunzel snapped.
Jack raised up his hands in defense and took half a step back. "I'm just saying." He looked around. "Where's Hiccup and Merida?" Just as he finished his sentence, Toothless landed right beside them. Merida had her teeth clenched and was somewhat shaking while she held Hiccup for dear life from behind. "I see that the flight didn't go so well for ya?"
Hiccup shrugged, "It wasn't all that bad."
"Well, Red-Head here tells me a different story." Jack responded while he poked Merida with his staff.
Merida jumped at the touch and quickly climbed off of the dragon. She

Shocked silence remained in the Workshop's atmosphere for quite some time. The newly dubbed Big Four looked at each other with surprise and confusion. Rapunzel broke the silence, "We're…the Four?"
"But…how's that possible?" Merida's voice was a bit shaken. "We don't even know each other!"
"And we're…mortals? Are you guys gods or something?" Hiccup added, his voice was also a bit shaken.
North let out a hardy laugh, "No! No, we are Guardians! We protect the children of the world! Both good or bad, naughty or nice, we protect them with our lives! But we are immortal."
"Then how could we help? We're just normal humans, we don't have any special powers or anything." Hiccup told North. He noticed that Rapunzel shifted around uncomfortably. "Don't we…?"
Rapunzel made a nervous laugh, "Nope!"
Tooth flew towards Rapunzel and said gently, "It's okay, Rapunzel, you can show us. We won't do anything to you, I promise." Rapunzel searched in Tooth's eyes to see if she wa

Three magic portals formed simultaneously in the Workshop. Tooth, Bunnymund, Sandy, and Jack watched the portals with content. Right then the portal on the far left released a blonde girl, she plopped face-first out of the portal as if she was pushed. I split second later a black and white Clydesdale sprinted out the portal in the middle, it's rider, a girl with crazy red hair, pulled her horse's reins back to make it stop. Right after the horse's appearance, a giant ebony dragon burst out of the portal, making the three Guardians duck so they wouldn't get hit. The dragon landed behind them, revealing its teenaged male rider with brown hair. Out of the same portal came out North and his sleigh. He jumped out of the sleigh and landed firmly onto his feet, his team went back to their quarters.
North motioned at each teen as he said, "This is Rapunzel, Merida DunBroch, and Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III."
It was Merida that said, "North, what's going on?"
"What happened to my home, my dad?

North made out of his final portal. He let out a relieved sigh when he looked at the environment down below; no Black Sand appeared…yet. All there was left now was the boy that represented autumn. North groaned when he realized that the lush pine forest below that was only lit by the full moon was too dense for his team to land. That's when he spotted a cove. Grinning and letting out a hardy laugh, he took his team down below. His sleigh creaked to a halt and smoothly landed on the shore of small pound centering the cove; he climbed out and examined the rock face that completely surrounded him. "Hm…about a story and a half tall. Nothing I can't handle." North chuckled to himself, he patted his leader reindeer and walked towards the rock face.
As North tried to find a sturdy enough rock to grip to, his team starred to stomp their hooves and their bells jingled, as if they were jumping around. "What is big deal?" He asked as he turned around, he gulped and his eyes widened

North came out of yet of another portal and made his team land on the green grass below. All he could see was forest and around him was a circle of huge menhirs that somewhat reminded him of Stone Hinge. He heard hoof-beats behind him. He turned around to see a large black and white Clydesdale horse. The horse skidded to a stop and threw off its rider as it got close to the menhirs. The rider landed right in front of North's feet with a hard and solid thud. It was a girl with long, wild, curly, fiery red hair wearing a dark green traditional dress, made of cotton, with stylish slits. Slung on her back was a brown long bow and had arrows in a brown leather holster around her waist. She cried at her horse forcefully, "Angus…!" Her horse, Angus, whined and got on his hind legs as if it was telling the girl to turn around. The girl froze and slowly looked over her shoulder at North; her light blue eyes widened and shot up to her feet. "Who are you?" Her voice was thick with a Scotti

North made out of his magic portal with his sleigh. He looked over his sleigh’s ledge to see large rock pit down far below him. Squinting, he could see a blue-purple topped stone tower covered in ivy and moss. It looked just like the tower in the image back at the workshop. North snapped his reindeers’ reins and pulled back, making his sleigh descend to the ground below. Suddenly, thunder boomed overhead and storm clouds quickly rolled in. On the horizon, a black cloud slithered towards the tower; Black Sand. North bit his bottom lip and snapped the reins again, making the reindeer go faster. He finally made it to the tower’s window and pushed the heavy wood shutters open. North jumped out of his sleigh and into the tower, he signaled his reindeer to circle the tower. The reindeer took off in a heartbeat. As North turned around, a flash of dark grey flashed in the corner of his eye. He drew out his swords and blocked the object; he raised his eyebrows when the object

North was busy creating a new ice-train. Christmas was still a few months away, but then again he has to deliver millions of toys to billions of kids. Everything was going just right until, bang! His office door slammed open, making his new creation crumble in his hands. "Ack! My train!" North turned around to see one of his yeti workers, "Ah, my friend. What is the matter?" The yeti burst out a line of frantic grunts and groans. North knit his eyebrows, "The Globe?" He walked past the yeti and to the Globe. The Globe keeps record of children of the world that still Believed, bad or good or naughty or nice. The Guardian of Wonder let out a hardy laugh and said to his worried toy-maker, "It is fine! Nothing is wrong with the Globe. Everything is in order, sure a few lights went out but that happens every day. Some stop Believing as more Believers come." As he walked away, the yeti huffed and looked at the Globe again, its eyes widened at what it saw form on the globe. Quickly, the yeti

"Eugene, I'm so happy right now, and I can't wait until we get married," Rapunzel said, while having a tone of excitement in her voice, as she and her fiancè parted after they were finished with their public display of affection, since Rapunzel's parents were still in the room.
"I'm glad to hear that, Punzie, so anyway, perhaps you and I should go somewhere alone, so we can have a little more privacy." Eugene suggested.
Even though he still wanted to know why Rapunzel was so upset from earlier, Eugene knew that she'd tell him when she was ready and comfortable.
"Yes, that's a good idea," Rapunzel replied, before turning around to face her parents. "Mom, Dad, is it okay with you if me and Eugene do that?"
"Of course, Rapunzel, the four of us can talk more about preparations for the wedding at another time, but you'll let us know when, right?" Queen Primrose asked.
"I will, and I promise that I won't forget," Rapunzel answered, as she went forward to hug both of her parents, then

"The day came when the wish to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom"
She crumpled the letter. Her hands shook with anger and she did not even try and conceal her powers. She let the raw fury creak up the walls and push the furniture violently out of the way. Hues of dark amber cast strange shadows over the queen and the few that were in the room. The guards drew their swords, unsure of what to do. The fire roared before suddenly going out in a rush, smothered.
Only in the dim glow of the ice did Anna truly see what her sister could have become had she remained isolated and in the dark. In a twisted sort of way, she thanked Hans for saving her, even though he had wished to kill them both in the end. She stood in the corner, silently panicking, but her face remained reserved despite the destruction around her. The queen straightened and the room lightened, like a curtain had been pulled back.

"Have pity on me whatever you are..."
What was he doing, coming down to see her? He had no real answer, and that only infuriated him more. He honestly had not expected her to move a piece of the chessboard, but when he returned and saw it he felt hope within him. Unfortunately, she did not take his playful banter at a simple board game as he had hoped. He laughed and hit himself in the head with the crook of his staff. Of course she wouldn’t, not with how observant she had grown, and even worse still she could still not see him. He’d hoped that his clue in the book had helped, but when he himself read the passage it melted away. There was no way she could see him now, not without knowing his full name.
To end his torment he took the book, meaning to keep it as an ironic keepsake. He sat idly in the trees wedged in a branch of a large oak and turned the yellowing pages. His apathetic mood only grew as he read his o

"The gods do not tolerate blasphemers...."
"Then perhaps it is a good thing I do not believe in the gods. For I have little tolerance of them and their games."
It was a week later that the queen had found time to herself again. Many more letters had been written, many more pleas of mercy heard and more and more trade ships found their way into the harbor with each passing day. It was midday and the Lady of Ice had found sanctuary in the library, a fire smoldered to her left as she lounged in the chaise. To her right was a table that held a chess set, the dust showing how infrequently it was used. Her mug of tea sat on the table untouched, the steam rising from the glass.
With her arm curled behind her head she used the other to support a large book in her lap. She read endlessly, flipping the thick yellowing pages with delicate thought. She couldn’t fathom why but she had gone back to the Council Chambers for the book. She f

“Has there been no word from the south?” Kristoff asked, filling his second plate.
Elsa put her fork down, “None, but a ship from the east was pulling in earlier.” She looked up and saw Anna’s worried face, “We have just over two months before the festival and a month to get everything in order. I’ll be sending out letters today along with invitations.” Almost forcing herself to look away she began eating again, but she did not believe she could taste it. Anna and Kristoff shared a look, but there was little they could do. In truth Anna was more anxious about other things.
Their plates cleared and cups empty Anna rose swiftly and reached for Kristoff’s awaiting arm. Olaf left the window and was already making hi
