Hi there. I don't come to this section of the forum very often, so maybe I'll get to meet some new people here.

 

I've been updating my signature and decided to remove the backstories of my dragons. Rather than just deleting them I thought it would be a good idea to post them here. These are brief overviews of each of their lives up up until they met their human trainer.

 

If you have your own stories about your human or dragon characters I'd love to see summaries of them. They could even be teasers to get us to read your fanfiction.

Sparkflare's earlier life

 

Born on Dragon Island, this female Monstrous Nightmare was one of the Red Death's subjects who raided Berk. Her preferred attack method was to avoid direct confrontation with humans and just steal the food while other dragons kept them occupied. Having darker scales than most Nightmares, she used this to his advantage by sneaking into the village at night before flaming up and scaring the Hooligans out of their wits. She could be a bit moody because of the Red Death's severity, but overall tried to remain friendly with her fellow dragons.


After their queen was killed she lived a much happier life on Dragon island. Then about a year later she noticed a human child wandering into the volcano with her favourite food, mutton! What a baffling turn of events this was. She was eager to see why this boy was here. To her surprise, the Night Fury had come with him, another human on his back. So after bonding with the boy she allowed him to climb onto hers too.

Young Streamglide

This shy young dragon didn't really feel like he could fit in with the others in his mountainous habitat, as no other Windwalkers his age lived there. Because of his shaggy fur and floppy wings, his parents sheltered him and made sure he didn't wander far off on his own. As he shed his fur he became a more efficient flyer, able to travel around to any island he pleased as long as no humans lived there.


On one flight he spotted several man-made wooden sea dragons with no humans left on top of them. Or so he thought. Before he knew it they were shooting sticks at him! He banked to the left and retaliated with a lightning strike that crippled the flimsy vessel, reducing the men to wiggling worms. But one of them got up and released a flying net that wrapped around him. Stuffed in a cage, the Windwalker whimpered in fear of the cruel humans. But a few nights later a Monstrous Nightmare attacked them, and to his disbelief a little human climbed off her back!

 

Here is the full version of the story. (Links will open in new tabs.)

Or if you don't want so much repetition, you can read Gorge's side of the story.

Finding Bulkshield

Bulk & Snow Gronckle.jpg

 

The mother Rumblehorn lay on her side, a single unhatched egg nestled between her legs. There was no way such a sick dragon could care for a baby; she wasn't even going to survive much longer. Trusting Gorge and his Nightmare with the egg was her last hope, and they were not going to let her down.


Gorge knew how much his brother loved Rumblehorns, so he gave him the egg as a Snoggletog gift. Their dad secretly designed a matching suit of armour for Gargle. And then on New Year's Day the most adorable Rumblehorn burst out of his shell to make his grand entrance into the big wide world, strong and healthy and unbelievably restless.

 

There is a lot more to this story so here's the rest: Strength From Frailty. Keep in mind that I created my second human character, Gargle, after I wrote the full story. But apart from the detail about Gorge giving the egg to his brother instead of keeping it, the rest would still be the same.

Baby Globstract

It was unbelievably difficult to keep little Globby under control as a baby, so I made sure I had plenty of Monstrous Nightmare gel to break off the amber she kept shooting at me. I tried to show her a more constructive purpose for these orange globs that harden. By the time she was full-grown I had taught her to make amber sculptures with my guidance. Sometimes they don't form recognizable objects or living things, but that's the beauty of abstract art! I called her Globby as a baby, and when we started exploring this new artistic possibility I decided to change the name to Globstract. It took her almost a year to grow to an adult, and now her colours are darker and more vibrant. She has learned a special song to call my other dragons to come.

 

Seriously though, Globstract was as hard to train as book Toothless. But now when she's not throwing me off her back and catching me just in time she can be quite helpful!
