Arvindale's Fire

10 years ago....

 

"Not you Astrid" Gobber said pulling me back. "It's not your fight yet." "But I want to help Uncle Finn!" I said, clutching my axe. He said "Go back inside." "Fine." Once Gobber went away, I ran after Uncle Finn. I arrived in time to see Finn frozen by the Flightmare. Running in, I raised my axe and boldly shouted "It's me ungodly beast! Fearless Astrid Hofferson!" Before I could strike, it breath some sort of mist, and paralyzed me. My axe slipped from my hands, and I stood defenseless before it. The Flightmare stared at me with its eerie blue eyes. Vikings came running down, and the glowing dragon swung its head to stare at them. A man ran at it with an axe, and it grabbed me, who had just unfroze, and soared away into the glowing sky. As I was carried away, I reached out my hand and cried "Help me-e-e-e......"

!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!I!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i

The Isle of Berk

Now..

 

I woke from the dream with a start. I had been having the same one over and over again for weeks now. It was always the same. My mother loped in. She was a glorious glowing blue, a Flightmare in her prime. She laid a fish in front of me, and nuzzled my cheek before loping off again through the network of caves that was our home. We were never able to understand each other's speech, but somehow we communicated. I rolled off the rock ledge that I slept on, and bit into the fish. Walking through the tunnels to the outside, I heard a roar that was definatly my mother's. I ran through the forest around our home, and emerged into a clearing where some of the strange creatures that I kept seeing in my dreams. They kept shouting, and herding my mother into a large net. I ran into the fray, leaping on top of one of the creatures, and knocking it to the ground. I kept fighting, but eventually one of them knocked me out with some sort of weapon. As I fell unconcious, the last thing I saw was my Flightmare mother being imprisoned in a net...

Chapter 1

Astrid

 

When I woke, I discovered that I was in some sort of wooden building. I jumped out of the strange soft-ledge and crouched on the wooden floor. Standing up, I went over to the metal things that were over the entrance, and pushed against them experimentally. They wouldn't budge. Suddenly there was a loud sound. I stood in the center of the wooden building, and watched as three people came into the building. One of them was a woman, and the other was a male with what looked like a red bush stuck to his face. The third I recognized. It was the man from my dream "Gobber." I stared at him warily and spoke. "I know you" I said haltingly. I didn't speak very much, so the feeling of the words in my mouth was strange. That startled the man-with-a-bush-on-his-face, and sent the two smaller bushes above his eyes shooting up to his helmet. "You can speak" He said . "Ye-es" I said warily. The woman looked at me, and then saw the beaded braclet that I wore. "Astrid!" she cried. I turned to her. "Fearless Astrid Hofferson" I breathed half to myself and half to them. The woman stared at me, then spoke to the bush-on-his-face-man. "Stoick, this is my Astrid! The one who was taken by the Flightmare ten years ago."

Iridia

My beautiful Aquaborealis! Here is her story....

 

Narrated by Iridia:

I swam through the waters by the viking island. It was a barren place, filled with spiky rocks and little greenery. I swam through the mouth of the cove where the vikings kept their boats, a harbor I believe. My tail propelled me along quickly, slicing through the chilly water. I swam around one of the rocks, and popped my head up on the other side. I was curious about these vikings. Their thoughts were so different from those of an Aquaborealis, all loud and darting from one thing to another. Kind of like a school of minnows. Cautiously, I watched the vikings. So caught up in staying hidden from the vikings on land, I didn't watch behind me. A net was thrown over me suddenly, and I whipped around. Vikings had snuck up on me and I was now trapped! Futily, I struggled against the net, even diving under the water to try and break free there. It was no use. A viking with a wiry black beard raised an axe over my head. I stared up at it in fear, and shrank back in the net. Before the axe fell, another viking, a teenager, ordered "Stop! What do we have here?" He put one boot on me, leaning on the butt of his axe. "This is a new type of dragon!" He exclaimed. "Keep it here overnight. In the morning, I will add its skull to my collection!" He ordered triumphantly. The vikings drove iron nails through the net, pinning it to the rock. All the while, I struggled until one of them threatened to drive a nail through my tail. Then I stopped struggling, and prepared for a long night.

 

Azura's (My viking) POV:

I flew through the storm, on the back of my skrill Spark. Expertly, she rode the tangled air currents, but fighting against the elements was a futile endeavor. Ahead, I spotted Berserker Island. It wasn't my favorite place, ever since I had almost died there a couple times, but we had to wait out the storm. "Take us down girl" I said, patting Spark's neck. She folded her wings, and dove, landing on a rocky ledge above the harbor. I dismounted, and walked over to the edge, kneeling so I wouldn't be seen. Far below, I could see a blue and purple dragon of a kind I had never seen before, not even heard about, imprisoned half in, half out of the water in a net. "I wonder what that dragon is?" I said to myself. Looking closer, I heard two vikings talking not far below. "Well, tomorrow Daggur will have that dragon's skull mounted on his wall. Pity really. Its so beautiful and gentle." Daggur was going to kill that beautiful dragon! I had to help, to rescue it. My best chance would be once it was en route to the arena. "Tomorrow, Spark, we are going to rescue that dragon" I said, looking back at my companion. She stared at me, as if saying "Good. I don't like Daggur any more than you do." I walked over to my friend, and pulled a blanket from her saddle bag. Curling up at the base of the cliff, I fell asleep.

 

Iridia's POV:

In the morning, once the storm blew itself out, the vikings came. They chained my legs and wings, and dragged me out of the water and up the cliffs to an arena of sorts. The teenage viking from before (I heard that his name was Daggur), was waiting inside, twirling his double bladed axe. I whimpered in fear, knowing that he was going to kill me, and strained against the chains. One of the vikings cuffed me upside the head, and dragged me to the center of the arena. I was chained to the stone floor, and I stared at Daggur in fear as he raised his axe, then let it fall. I closed my eyes, preparing to feel the blade. A clang caused me to open my eyes, and what I saw astounded me. A female viking with copper hair was blocking Daggur's axe with her sword. "I won't let you kill this dragon, Daggur" The female said. "Azura" Daggur sneered. "How dare you return to my island!" He howled, pulling his weapon away and attacking. The female, Azura, dodged his strike, and returned with one of her own. I watched as they fought, neither one gaining the upper hand. Suddenly, a blue and purple dragon leaped down from the netting above. It spread its wings wide and hissed, lightning crackling amid its spiky frill. Daggur stared at the Skrill, and Azura took advantage of his distraction. She slammed the butt of her sword into the back of his head and Daggur crumpled to the ground. The guards had run away in fear, so Azura ran over to me and pulled a pin from her braid and used it to pick the lock on my chains. "Come on" she said, beckoning with her left hand, her right holding her sword. I followed her and the skrill into the stone tunnels that led outside. Once we reached the open air, Azura mounted her skrill and took off. I followed her, launching into the air and beating my wings hard. I followed her all the way to another island, one I had never been to.

 

We landed in the main square, I cautiously looked around, ready to take off at a moment's notice. A skinny boy with brown hair and a metal leg walked up, acompanied by a black Night Fury. I tensed, ready to fly. "Azura, who's this?" The boy asked. "I took shelter from the storm on Berserker Island and I rescued her from Daggur. He was going to kill her, Hiccup" Azura explained. Hiccup. That must be the boy's name. "I've never seen anything like her" Azura said. I opened my thoughts and 'said' "I am an Aquaborealis. A sea dragon." Azura and Hiccup jumped, looking around wildly before Hiccup realized I had said it. "Oh! An Aquaborealis! There's a few others of your kind here on Berk" He directly adressed me. "Azura, you've never met the other Aquaborealis riders, but there are a few on Berk." "Could I stay here?" I asked Hiccup. "I was seperated from my pod when I went exploring, and it would be nice to stay here." "Of course!" Hiccup said. "If you are okay with it, you could stay with me" Azura offered. I smiled. "It would be my pleasure." Since then, I have lived on Berk with Azura, and I even joined her family of dragons!

Delinara

This feathered beauty was made by the wonderful Amberleaf7.

 

Adiria

She is very gentle and loves hatchlings. She would never hurt anything except in self defense. She also has an excellent sense of humor, and can think her way out of practically anything.

This celestial beauty was made by bubbles5498.

 

I found Adiria when I was stranded in Berk's wilderness after a failed hiking trip where I had gotten lost. Don't ask why (But it involved red-eyed boars and a piece of bacon). I had made camp for the night, when I saw something streak across the sky (Maybe a comet?) and land in a field not far away. Curious, and unable to fall asleep, I went to investigate. There was a smoking crater in the middle of the field, and through the snoke I saw a beautiful purple dragon who looked like a piece of the night sky. Her wing was broken, so I slid into the crater to try and help. As I approached her, the purple dragon raised her head. "I won't hurt you..." I said soothingly, seeing that the dragon was nervous. Using some rope, and a sutibly straight tree branch, I managed to splint the dragon's wing. Over the span of a month, I helped the dragon- who I had named Adiria- recover. It involved lots and lots of fish, let me say that. All the while, I was unaware that Hiccup and some of my friends were searching for me. One evening, just after the sun went down, Adira's wing had healed and she was ready to fly. "Go on, try" I encouraged her. She leaped into the air, beating her wings hard. Soon, Adira was soaring above the field and across the night sky. I smiled, happy. She landed and looked into my eyes. "Thank you" I heard a melodic voice say in my head. "You... you can talk?" I said, surprised. "Yes. My species, the Galaxy Furies, are telepathic. I know that you are lost, and I can help you back to your village." "Thank you" I said as she allowed me onto her back. We took off and soared over the dark forest. I had never realized that Adira glowed slightly, like the soft radience of stars. We landed in Berk's main square and I slipped off her back. "Thank you" I said, extremely grateful. "I should be thanking you. Without your help, my wing would not have healed properly." "So, where will you go now?" I asked. "I am not yet strong enough to fly back up to the stars, so I will regain my strength elsewere." "You could stay with me" I offered. Adira accepted, and has stayed with me ever since, occasionally visiting the world high in the stars.

Chapter 2 Flightmare   I

Chapter 2

Flightmare

 

I stared at the woman. She-she couldn't be.... my mother? Suddenly, a scream came from outside. The vikings whipped around as the wooden door was flung open and my Flightmare mother came streaking in. She stood on her hind legs, flung open her long wings and roared. When she saw me, she dropped to the ground and growled at the vikings. They moved aside, and she stalked between them. Placing her muzzel on the bars, she purred. I reached my hand through the bars, and placed it on her. She licked my hand briefely, and then turned. Opening her mouth, she prepared to exhale her paralyzing mist at the vikings. I grabbed her wing and shouted "Stop! Don't hurt them." She closed her mouth and turned to me. "They won't hurt us. Right?" I directed the last part to the vikings. "Right. We won't hurt you" man-with-a-bush, no wait, his name was Stoick said. I said "Let my mother go, and I'll stay." They agreed, and my Flightmare mother  flew away. Sitting on the soft-ledge in my cell, I just watched them as they talked.

 

Phlegma:

"I'm telling you Stoick. That's my little girl, Astrid" I said. "She may be Phlegma, but the Berserkers have been threatning war for quite a while, and I wouldn't put it past them that they would try to sneak a spy in." "But-" "No but's Phlegma. We'll wait and watch her for a while first." "As you wish Stoick."

 

 

Astrid:

After the vikings left, I fell asleep. Fighting off hostile vikings is tiring work. Later, I was woken up by the whispers of some kids the same age as me. I peeked at them from underneath my eyelids, then leaped out of the soft-ledge yelling "YAAAAA!!!!" The short, husky one screamed, and the others jumped a mile in the air. I walked up to the bars of my cell and stared at them. There was the short husky one, then a boy and a girl who looked like twins, a strong looking boy who was admonishing the husky boy for acting like some wimpy girl, and a skinny boy who had brown hair, and was trying to break the twins apart because they were punching each other. More accuratly, the girl was punching the boy while he kept saying "Do it again!" They all froze when they saw that I was watching me. The skinny kid with brown hair stepped forward and said "Hello..... I'm Hiccup, this is Fishlegs, the Twins, Ruffnut and Tuffnut, and Snotlout." He pointed to each of them in turn. "What's your name?" He finished. It took me a moment to realize he was talking to me, and then I quickly said "Astrid. Or at least I think it's Astrid." "Cool" he responded. The husky kid, Fishlegs, asked curiously "Are you Astrid Hofferson? The one who was taken by the Flightmare?" "I-I don't actually know. I might be, because I've been having this dream about Arvindale's Fire and my mother carrying a girl off named Astrid. Thing is I've always been the girl." "Wait, your mother? If you are Astrid, then your mother is Phlegma the Fierce. Then who carried you away in the dream?" "Oh! Uh, my mom is the Flightmare who I was captured with." Fishlegs stared at me, and so did the rest. Snotlout said "You were raised by a dragon? That's impossible." "Well, here I am" I said. The door swung open, and the kids ran into assorted hiding places. It was a guy with a Bucket on his head. " 'Ere's dinner" He said, placing a pottery plate of food in my cell. "Thank you" I replied, and the bucket man left. Once the door swung closed, the kids came out of hiding. "Why were you hiding?" I asked them. "Uh, well.... we're not exactly supposed to be here" said Hiccup. "Yeah, Hiccup" said Snotboy. Er, Snotlout. "We should go, unless you want to get caught by your dad." "Yeah. Uh, nice meeting you Astrid." "Yep." After they left I contnued eating my dinner, and then crawled back onto the soft-ledge, which I remembered that they called a "bed". As I fell asleep, my last thought was Maybe I'll fit in here.....

Chapter 3 Trust   When I had

Chapter 3

Trust

 

When I had been in the village for a few weeks, Stoick allowed me to walk around with a guard. Really I enjoyed this the most out of my imprisonment. This allowed me to have some small measure of freedom. I was out walking with Bucket as my guard, when I met up with Hiccup again. "Hey Hiccup" He was out walking with Stoick. "How do you know my son's name?" Stoick asked. "He came to meet me my first night here." I immediatly wished that I hadn't said anything, because Stoick shot his son a thunderous look. "We have to go" He said. "Hiccup, I want to talk with you" he said as they walked away. Later, when Bucket had fallen asleep (The guy always fell asleep when he was charged with guarding me) I quietly lifted the sharp piece of scrap metal that I had stolen from Gobber from beneath my bed. I unscrewed the metal grate over the window, and carefully laid it down on the bed. "Sorry Bucket" I whispered as I squeezed out the window. I hoped that he didn't get in trouble for this. Dropping to the ground outside, I looked at the sky and estimated that I had maybe two hours before I had to be back. Darting between the houses, I made my way to Hiccup's house. I climbed up the rough shingles (Which made excellent hand holds) and slipped through his window. He was still awake, sitting pensivly at his desk. "Hiccup" I whispered. He whipped around, and whispered "What are you doing here? You were supposed to be- never mind; you aren't supposed to be here!" He had quickly shoved the things he was working on out of the way when I had come in, but I managed to see a drawing of a dragon, and a diagram for what looked like a false tail fin. "You already got me in trouble today. I wasn't supposed to meet you. My dad is already mad at me for- never mind. My point is, you can't be here!' Hiccup said, his voice getting a little louder. He lowered his voice and then asked "Wait, how did you escape?" "I nicked a sharp bit of- no, if I tell you how I got out, you have to tell me what you're working on there" I responded. The blood drained from his face. "You know what- I don't care how you got out. I'm not telling you what I'm doing." "It's something to do with the dragon you drew; am I right?" I said. He stuttered "Uh- I- um- yes, it does have something to do with the dragon I drew. That's all you're going to get. Now tell me how you got out." "No. Tell me about this dragon. A Night Fury, right?" "How'd you know that?" He breathed. "It's obvious from your drawing. I've seen a Night Fury when it was attacking one time." "You have!" Hiccup said eagerly, then caught himself. "Fine. I'll tell you but you can't tell anyone. His name is Toothless. I shot him down during one of the dragon attacks about a month ago. When I shot him down I destroyed half of his tail fin. I have made friends with him and I'm trying to make him a replacement mechanical tail fin." I stared at him for a moment, then said "Don't worry. I won't tell anyone, but... can I meet Toothless? Please!" I had never met any dragon except for my Flightmare mother, and I wasn't about to turn a chance to see a Night Fury down. He hesitated, then said "Fine. It'll be risky, but you can meet him tomorrow a few hours after sundown. Just- please don't let anyone follow you. He's really my only friend and the other vikings would kill him without a second thought." "Don't worry Hiccup. I'll be careful."

Chapter 4 Toothless   Just

Chapter 4

Toothless

 

Just after sundown, I escaped from my cell again after Bucket fell asleep, and made my way through town to the edge of the forest. "Hiccup!" I called softly, hoping no one would hear me. "Over here" I heard behind me, and I whipped around. Hiccup came out from behind a bush, and motioned for me to follow him. We trekked through the forest, not speaking until we reached a deep ravine. He clambered over the rocks and under branches, until we reached a place where a shield had been wedged into the rocks. He turned to me and said "Do not come out until I tell you. He's not so friendly to strangers." With that, he slid under the shield and called "Toothless!" A black Night Fury who I hadn't seen in the shadows of a tree, uncurled his tail from a tree branch where he had been sleeping upside down, and padded over to Hiccup. The Night Fury, Toothless I assumed, made a soft warbling sound then suddenly pricked his ears. He growled, then shot towards me. I froze behind the shield as Toothless prowled around the opening in the rocks. Hiccup ran over and said "Toothless, she's a friend." Toothless backed down and Hiccup said "You can come out Astrid." Cautiously, I inched out from behind the shield and stopped. "Astrid, Toothless. Toothless, Astrid" Hiccup introduced me. I stared at the big black dragon, afraid. He prowled around me, almost like he was inspecting me, then once he had completed a full circle around me, sat on his hind legs almost like he was imitating a viking. "He-hello Toothless" I said, fully aware that one of the most fearsome dragons in the small bit of world that I knew was standing next to me. "Don't worry; he won't hurt you" Hiccup reassured me. I wanted to believe him, but my brain was still stuck at "There is a very large dangerous dragon next to me." Toothless stared at me with his green eyes for a moment, then nuzzled me and trotted back to his tree. "I've never seen him do that" Hiccup remarked on Toothless nuzzling me. I looked up at the sky which was beginning to turn to gray, obscuring the silver stars. "Hiccup, I have to get back. Now!" We ran through the forest in a race against time. I ran behind the houses of Berk to my prison, then slipped through the window and landed on the stone floor. When I turned around, Stoick, Gobber, and another man that looked at lot  like Snotlout. "Uh... Hi Stoick" I said smiling nervously. They did not look amused.

Chapter 5 Caught   "You come

Chapter 5

Caught

 

"You come into our village, we provide food and shelter for you, and then you go sneaking around!" Stoick shouted at me in the Great Hall. "In my own defense..." I began, then my voice trailed off when Stoick shot me a thunderous glare. "Never mind. I just want to say, that I didn't mean to attack you or anything; I just needed some fresh air. Without a guy with a bucket on his head watching me." The guy that looked like Snotlout said "Chief, my question is how did she escape? Unless, Bucket wasn't doing his duty." Bucket said sheepishly "I may have fallen asleep a few times." Stoick replied "Bucket, you are relieved of guard duty, and Spitlout, Gobber searched her cell and found this." He held out a pointy piece of scrap metal. "You stole this" Stoick stated angrily. "Not only do you snoop around, but you also steal from us. Gobber!" Gobber walked over, his foot-steps making an odd clunk-step, clunk-step noise. "Yes Stoick" He said. "Take the girl back to her cell and find a new, better guard" Stoick ordered, glaring at Bucket when he said the last part. Gobber grabbed me and hauled me back to my cell, where he chained me to the wall with long chains so that I could move around some. The new guard he posted was... Snotboy. No, his name was Snotlout. It was so hard to remember. Gobber left, and Snotlout proudly strutted in front of my cell. "Not so tough, Dragon Girl, eh?" He jeered. I lunged at the bars and he leaped back, startled. My chains prevented me from getting to the bars and I strained against them. "Like I said, not so tough" He said. I detected a hint of nervousness in his voice. Nervousness was good. I could use it. Eventually Snotlout grew tired of taunting me and sat on a barrel. I curled up as best I could underneath the thin blanket, and tried to fall asleep. A knock at the door startled me awake, but I lay still pretending to be asleep. "Whadya want" Snotlout said to whoever was at the door. "I have food for the prisoner" someone said. I recognized that voice. It was Hiccup! I pretended to wake, and walked over to the bars. "What are you doing here?" I whispered, trying to make sure that Snotlout couldn't hear us. "I had to see you. I think I can get you out of jail, but my plan is still a work in progress." "I'm fine. Really Hiccup." "Do you know how long they will keep you here? I don't but my dad keeps talking about 'we can't have a dragon girl in the village. She's causing trouble.' I don't think that they will release you, but I don't think that they will keep you here either." "Hurry up Hiccup" Snotlout called out. "I have to go." Hiccup stood up, and walked away. He just barely glanced at me as he walked away but that was enough. I understood his warning. Stoick couldn't keep me in the village. He might have released me, but with Spitlout and some of the other vikings, he might have to take drastic measures. I began eating the stew that Hiccup brought me, thinking. I might have to escape on my own. I mean, Hiccup had enough secrets that could get him in trouble without him rescuing me. I had to get out of here before Spitlout and some of his 'friends' forced Stoick into a position where he had to execute me. I had already been here for a month and blizzard season was coming. I was a drain on their resources and they needed all the food they have. I made up my mind. I was going to escape, then make it look like I was dead. This way the Berkians wouldn't chase me and Hiccup wouldn't get in trouble. The only problem was how to do it....

Chapter 6 Helheim's

Chapter 6

Helheim's Gate

 

When I woke up I had a plan. I knew that all of the formal occasions took place in the dragon arena so my plan was wait until I was taken there, then steal a dragon and fly away. The only problem was that I hadn't the slightest clue how I was supposed to even get close to a dragon without getting my head bitten off. My guard had been changed when I woke up and it was now some mute sheperd who's name was Silent Sven. I have to say, the guy was creepy. All he did was stare at me never even making a sound. But if I made as if to break the chains or do anything of the escaping type, he would point his strange multi-pronged spear at me. So I was stuck inside my cell all day, plotting escape that I couldn't do. Hmmm. What now?

 

A week later, I still hadn't been executed, so I guessed that Spitlout was having a hard time of it with Stoick. I hadn't done anything escape related, so I was allowed to come watch the finals of the dragon training. As I watched, Hiccup entered the arena and a Monsterous Nightmare came bursting out of the cage. Hiccup let his dagger fall to the ground and threw his helmet away. I heard him say "I'm not one of them." I saw Stoick bang his hammer against the bars and the Nightmare attack Hiccup. I ran to the railing shouting "Hiccup!" Suddenly, I heard a whistling sound that could only be one thing: a Night Fury attacking. Someone shouted "Night Fury; GET DOWN!!!" Toothless blasted his way through the bars into the arena and tackled the Nightmare, who had Hiccup pinned down. Toothless and the Nightmare rolled out of the smoke, wildly battling each other. Vikings began to leap into the arena. Hiccup pushed at Toothless saying "Go bud. Now!" Vikings started to try and subdue Toothless; he retaliated. Knocking vikings all over, he tackled Stoick and prepared to blast the man to oblivion. "NO!" Hiccup shouted. Toothless swallowed the plasma blast, and looked at Hiccup. As Toothless was chained and taken away, Hiccup met my eyes as he was dragged away by his furious father. The message was clear: I had to rescue Toothless before the vikings killed themselves and Toothless by going to the dragon nest that Hiccup had told me about before. I evaded Silent Sven in the crowd and ran to the dragon arena. Later, after the fleet sailed away, Hiccup came to the arena where his only friend had been captured hours before. I had gathered up Fishlegs, the Twins, and well, I had not so much found Snotlout as kidnapped him. Hiccup opened the Monsterous Nightmare cage, and led the Nightmare to Snotlout. He some how got Snotlout to bond with it, then found us all dragons. I bonded with a blue deadly nadder that I promptly named Stormfly. Hiccup rode with me, and we flew across the sea to 'Helheim's Gate.' We soared in and when I saw the giant gray dragon my heart almost stopped. "We have to fight that!!!" I exclaimed. Not responding, Hiccup scanned the burning boats below."Drop me down there" He pointed to a boat a little ways from the shore. I swooped low over, and Hiccup actually jumped off Stormfly onto the boat. "Go help the others!" He shouted up to me. I swooped into the fray. I was trying to help rescue Snotlout, when I saw that Hiccup and Toothless had made it off the boat and were flying to help. "He's up!" I shouted. The Twins cheered and swooped to rescue Snotlout. They deposited him on the ground and flew to help Fishlegs. I didn't see the spikes of the queen's frill until it was too late, and I was knocked off Stormfly. I screamed, then felt myself being caught by something. It was Toothless. He depostied me on a rock, then soared back into the fray. The Twins had fallen somewhere, so it was all up to Hiccup now. Suddenly, as I watched Hiccup and Toothless fly into the clouds, I felt something nuzzel me. I turned and saw my Flightmare mother. I knew exactly what she was thinking. I slid into the spot between her wings, and we took off into the clouds. I saw a giant shape spraying fire into the clouds, then a whistling sound as Toothless flew as fast as he could. I flew in the direction of the queen, and my mother released a blast of her paralyzing mist which flew right onto one of her wing joints. The queen released a roar so loud it stunned me for a second and started to fall. Unfotunatly for us, the mist only last so long and it depends on the size of the beast it was used upon. Before long, the queen was up again and she started to chase after me. We darted through the dark clouds, but my mother's glow gave us away. The queen flapped after us, and, opening her mouth, began to create a vaccum that was could not escape. We were sucked closer and closer to her fearsome jaws, until a plasma blast distracted her and she shot away after Toothless and Hiccup, who led her downwards. We were alone in the dark clouds until a mammoth boom shattered the quiet, and a fire ball raced along the queen's body. Hiccup and Toothless were shooting upwards, trying to escape the flames, when the tail of the queen knocked Hiccup off. I cried out as Hiccup and Toothless fell into the inescapable flames. After the fire died, I dove down, searching for Hiccup. I met up with Stoick and we searched. Finally we found Toothless who was curled on the ground. "No. My son!" Stoick cried. He knelt next to Toothless, tears streaming down his cheeks. Toothless stirred, then unfolded his black wings to reveal Hiccup. Stoick picked Hiccup up and then shouted "He's alive! My son is alive!" In a lower voice, he said to Toothless "Thank you for protecting my son." 

 

About a month or two later:

I waited outside Hiccup's house. Gobber and Gothi, the village healer, had said that he would wake today. My faithful Stormfly nuzzled my cheek. "Hey Stormfly" I said. She had been injured in the battle with the Red Death, which the queen was now known as. A befuddled Hiccup opened the door of his house, then slammed it shut again, no doubt having seen the vikings on gronckles flying past. He opened the door again, and stepped out. The crowd of well-wishers waiting with me cheered then ducked as Toothless came springing out of the house. "Hello Hiccup" I greeted him when he made his way over to me. "Hello Astrid" He responded. Gobber shoved his way through and said, gesturing to the prosthetic leg that Hiccup wore, "How d' you like it? I made it m'self." "Well I might have to make a few tweaks to it" Hiccup said shrugging. The ensuing laughter was infectuous. Stoick came up and asked "Well, how do you like then new Berk?" "I-I never expected this. It's amazing!" Hiccup responded. I stared out at the new Berk. There were dragons being ridden by vikings everywhere. I couldn't believe that vikings and dragons were finally working together. Later, I joined all of my friends, Hiccup, Fishlegs, Snotlout, and The Twins, for a flight around Berk. As we flew under bridges and over yak pastures, I flew straight into the noonday sun alongside the other riders. Life was perfect and I had finally returned to my home.

Very good. I am guessing that

Very good. I am guessing that this was the last chapter. A LOT shorter then The Last of the Lightning Keepers books 1 and 2,but it was expected; after all,you did do 23 chapters all together in The Last of the Lightning Keepers books!

You may call me Esp, DragonRiver, or Sommer.

My in-game name is Lsara

 

                                                                     My dragons:

 

Name: Opal

Gender: Female

Appearance: Blue with green

Personality: Like a mother to my other dragons.

Type: Monsterous Nightmare

History: I walked into the hatchery. There were so many eggs to choose from! Gobber had said a Gronkle, but they just didn't feel right. A Nadder was okay. But Zipplebacks loved to fight, and I couldn't handle that. I came around a corner and saw the Nightmare nest. On the edge of it was a shiny, blue egg. That was the one. I carefully picked it up and carried it over to the lava pool. I dropped it in and waited. It didn't take long for a pedestal to rise from the lava with the egg on it. The egg cracked, and then burst open. In the center of the shells was a tiny blue nad green dragon. It looked at me, and I knew I had chosen the right egg. "Your name will be Opal." I whispered.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Name: Glacier

Gender: Female

Appearance: Dark teal with lighter teal

Personality: A bit evil, sinister.

Type: Whispering Death

History: "Well this is creepy." I said. My Nightmare, Opal, let out a soft roar and blasted out a bit of flame to light the tunnel up ahead. We were in the Whispering Death tunnels because Hiccup had wanted us to check them out for anything. We turned a corner and came to a lake. A real underground lake with a waterfall, and fish leaping from the murky water. We stopped to get a fish and were about to go back up when I saw a box with an Outcast crest on it. "What's this? What do you think, Opal?" I asked the blue and green dragon. "We could take one back to show Hiccup." I said to myself. I picked up a teal egg and hopped on Opals back. We flew out of the tunnels and showed Hiccup. "Hmm. Outcast crest, you say? I'll look into it. Hey, maybe you can keep the egg?" "Really?" I asked Hiccup. "Sure. it needs a home with a good dragon trainer." He said. "Oh wow!" I raced to the hatchery and put the egg in lava. I watched it crack and a dark teal head poked out. "What will your name be, little girl?" I asked. The baby looked up at me and bared its teeth. "Haha, you're an angry dragon aren't you? How about....Glacier?" I said. "Yes. your name will be Glacier."

 

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Name: Evergreen

Gender: Male

Appearance: Dark green with lighter green

Personality: Angry all the time. Likes to follow Glacier.

Type: Whispering Death

History: "We'll get someone for you to be with, Glacier!" I said. One of the other Whispering Death eggs hadn't been taken by anyone when Hiccup put them in the store. I had taken the egg and was now hopping around the lava pool as I waited for the egg to hatch. Glacier seemed..Tolarant of my antics. "Oh! It's hatching!" I said. I looked at the egg as it broke open. A small green head snapped out and growled at me. "Woah, boy. Calm down. Must be a Whispering Death thing, huh?" I said to the dark green dragon glaring at me. "How about your name be.....Green? No. Way to simple. Evergreen!" I said. "Hello Evergreen."

 

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Name: Sasha

Gender: Female

Appearance: Red with purple

Personality: Cheerful, but, as with all Storm Cutters, proud.

Type: Storm Cutter

History: I rushed to the traders shop. Storm Cutter eggs had just come in! I ran in. "Hey there! Do you have any Storm Cutter eggs left?" I asked. "Well there is one. No one wanted it so I was going to put it back where I found it." Trader Johhan said to me. "Oh no! I'll take the egg." I said. "Ok. I'm glad someone wanted it." He handed me a purple and red egg. I took it and ran outside. I rushed to the hatchery and put it in the lava. I watched as a tiny red and purple head covered in frills came out. "You are one lovely girl!" I said softly as the Storm Cutter ruffled its four wings. "Hmm. Sunset? No. You don't have those colors. What will be your name then? Ooo! Sasha?" I said. The baby almost seemed to nod its head. "Ok, Sasha. Welcome to the world!"

 

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Name: Lilac

Gender: Female

Appearance: Light purple with dark purple belly

Personality: A prankster that will do anything to get metal. 

Type: Smothering Smoke Breath

History: "I'll never get one, I guess." I said sadly to Sasha as I watched a Smoke Breath fly over me. I had always wanted one, but I was a few gems short. The Storm Cutter looked at me sympathetically. "There are so few ways to get gems." I said to myself. I turned away and walked toward my house. I opened the door, went up-staires, and got it bed. I soon fell asleep. The next day, Hiccup had a job for me. "I need you to get these things for me. I can pay you gems for it!" Hiccup said to me. I looked at the list. Gems! That was just what I needed! "Ok Hiccup!" I snached the list and ran off. I took the entire day to find the things needed, but I finally got them all. "Thanks. Here you go!" Hiccup handed me a pouch of gems. "Thank you so much!" I said. I ran off yet again. This time it was to the store. "Here are the gems." I handed the gems to trader Johhan. I flew to the hatchery and put the egg in lava. Smoke filled the room and I looked down at a pale purple baby. "Lilac!" I blurted out. It seem right. "Your name will be Lilac. You like that, right?"

 

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Name: Orca

Gender: Female

Appearance: Black with white belly and spots

Personality: Friendly, LOUD.

Type: Thunderdrum

History: "What do you think I'll get out of it?" I asked my dragons as they crowded around me. I had saved enough gems to get an egg box and I was about to open it. I slowly lifted the lid and looked inside. A crackling pale blue egg was inside. "A Thunderdrum!" I said. I lifted it up and carried it inside the hatchery. I put it in the Tidal Class hatching place. It was a pool of warm water. I looked on as the crackling surface of the egg broke open and a black and white head popped out and sent and gentle sonic blast playfully into my face. "Nice to see you too." I said, laughing. "How about we call you Orca?" I asked the baby. She sent another blast into my face. "Ha! Orca it it then!"

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Name: Sila

Gender: Female

Appearance: White with light teal fins and barb

Personality: Fierce, but has a small soft side. Is very lonely, because her pack abandoned her.

Type: Speedstinger

History: "What? There is no way an entire pack of Speedstingers could be here without us knowing." I told Hiccup. "It's true, Lsara. I saw something around here that looked like a Speedstinger, so there must be a pack." He replied. "I need you to look for it." I stared at him. "And where should I go first?" I asked. "Try around caves, and places for them to get food. Near a fishing pool." He told me. "Ugh! Fine. But if I don't find anything then I get to tell you "I told you so."" And then I got on Sasha and flew toward the nearest cave I knew about. But the longer I looked around it, the more it felt wrong. "I can't think today. Of course Speedstingers would go to a place where no one could find them so easily." I scolded myself. Sasha nodded. "Okay. Lead the way to the place you want to go." I sighed as I got on the Storm Cutter. She shot in the air and headed towards the icy glaciers that were at the very far side of Icestorm Island. "And why didn't I think of this?" I asked Sasha as I looked around. There was an overhang, and a pool of fish. Perfect for a pack of dragons, no matter if they were flightless. Sasha curled up to sleep. And then I heard a growl. A white Speedstinger was standing on a ledge above me. I slowly started creeping towards it. I looked around for signs of a pack. A small pile of fish there, scrapes in the ice for nests here. But no sign of any other Speedstingers. "Uh..Hi there." I said. The Speedstinger roared, but didn't move. "W-why are you all alone here girl?" I asked, mostly to myself. When I said this, the Speedstinger made something that sounded almost like a whimper, and flattened her crest down, something that was a sign of peace. "Why don't you have a pack?" I kept talking in a soothing voice as I slowly inched closer and closer. And then I was right next to it. It made another soft growl, but didn't stop me as I reached out to touch it. I ran my hand along her back, and watched her. "Sila." I whispered. The Speedstingers head shot up, and she looked at me. "Could I name you Sila?" I asked. She narrowed her eyes and growled. I backed away, sensing it was time to go. I woke up Sasha and started to get on her. I heard something behind me, and saw the Speedstinger had walked right up to me. She seemed lonely, but not sure what do. "Y-you can come, Sila." I told her. And then I started walking back. She followed.

 

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Name: Tsunami and Typhoon

Gender: Female

Appearance: Blue with sea green belly and gray-blue details.

Personality: Typhoon likes to fight a lot, and is rather hot-headed. Tsunami is more polite, but is really still the same.

Type: Hideous Zippleback

History: "Wonder what we'll get this time. Another Thunderdrum?" I asked my dragons. I had yet another egg box on the table, and was ready to open it. "Okay..Ready!" I lifted the lid. A blue and gray egg was there. "A Zippleback!" I cried. I had never liked Zipplebacks. They were always fighting. "Well, I will love it anyway. Come on." I carried the egg to the hatchery and popped it in the lava. "I hope it will be nice." I said to myself. It cracked open. A blue, blue-gray, and sea green Zippleback was there. They were already tangled in one another. I sighed, but I already kind of liked them. "Okay. I have the feeling you might fight. So something fierce. And you have the colors of the ocean, or maybe sky, so that helps. What though?" I wondered out loud. "Well. You will be Typhoon." I said, pointing to the head that was snapping at the other. "And...You could be...Wave? Just no. Ooo! Storm?! Nah. Wait, didn't Hiccup tell me about those...Storms at sea once? They were big waves-Tsunami!" I shouted to the more quite looking head. Not quite by much, anyway. "I'm alread having fun with you guys." I said.
