Just watched it today and so many memories watching it at my Grammy’s house! Plus along with it’s sequel: Willows in Winter.


Trivia: did you know Michael Gambon (Harry Potter) voiced Badger in this one?






Who else watched these cartoons as a kid?


             She shall be the Chosen Child of Thor, given the power of Storms, and lead all Lightning Dragons into a battle that shall decide the fate of the Archipelago: Destruction or Freedom.



My Viking, Firesome, is the legendary child of lightning and thunder, which is the Great God Thor's main element hence her steed being the mighty Skrill itself. She is destined in a prophecy to one day be the queen of Skrill, leading them into battle against Drago Bludvist and his Dragon Army to unleash her full power of Lightning. And with her Skrill, Azyru by her side, almost nothing can take them down!

Wise old Ravenclaw, if you a ready mind.

Where those are wit and learning

Will always find their kind.

My Patronus: A Black Stallion






Here's some info about my Viking character: Firesome and my beloved Skrill soulmate, Azyru!


First, an Azyru bouncie to make you smile!:




Name: Firesome

Gender: Female

Eye Color: Hazel

Hair Color: Light Brown

Title: The Phantom Skrill Rider


Name: Azyru

Species: Skrill

Gender: Female

Color: Gray with Purple Highlights

Titan Wing Color: Black, white spines, and turquoise blue highlights

Eye Color: Violet

Viking Companion/Sister: Firesome



Azyru acts like a sister to Firesome. Always loving her and protecting her, but she also enjoys a bit of adventure every now and then. She was rescued by Firesome from Dragon Hunters who had planned on selling her to their dreaded leader, Viggo. Ryker had blinded her in one eye with his dagger, and she vows for revenge one day. She loves Firesome like a sister and will never leave her side.


P.S. Check out my YouTube/Dailymotion channel, Blazefire19! :D



Firesome arrived mysteriously on Berk on the back of the second most feared Dragon: the Skrill after hearing of the peace between men and dragon. Upon meeting Hiccup, he was so in awe at the bonding between Firesome and her soulmate dragon friend, a female Skrill called Azyru that he invited Firesome to train dragons for him while he is on guard for Dragon Hunters to take their leaders, Viggo and Ryker down and reclaim the Dragon Eye once and for all. Firesome has trained many dragons, common, rare, and new. 63 in all!

Um, I vaguely remember watching it, although if my memory is working right, I don't think I liked this one very much.


      Warning! Under coconstruction!!!!! Permenantly!!!!


So I'm Rheileen's Storm. I have been playing SOD for almost a year now, and am a member of The Lost and Broken.


My in game character is Norway's Queen, and her dragons, NIghtshade tthe sandwraith, and Tooth the Nadder.


I play on and off.

I hate magic and anything Pokémon.

I love red and have a bunny and a horse.

I hate frozen jeans and overused plotlines.


I am in need of art, so if you have some that you think I might like. Shoot it at me.


I am a quirky, fun loving goof, that needs a life outside of my computer, and still doesn't know how to take screenshots! XD

(Or take life seriously really, cuz yeah, I need to gets life and...yeah...yeh I'll just leave now.)



And now it is time to introduce the girls!!!!!




Long curly red hair in a ponytail and soft blue eyes. Tall, generally wears a mint green sleeveless dress and either roman sandals or fuzzy boots in winter. 

Carries a spear.

Is a gentle but firm mother figure. She takes care of her little sisters while they are on Berk. She loves dragons, and cares deeply for most animals. She hates killing, or hurting others. And so works as a dragon Rescuer.




Also has a long curlcurly red ponytail. She has ice blue eyes and is average height. She wears a bright green sleeveless dress, and sometimes a cream colored blouse. Gold necklace and bracelet. She wears roman sandles or boots.

She has no weapon except her tongue.

she is a snob, fiesty and selfish mostly, but a ccomplete angel arouaround teachers or her crush. She is in cahoots for King Mikkel. And lies everyone to thithink she is a powerful and great lady.




Also has curly red hair in a ponytail. Green eyes and freckles. She wears a pink shirt, black skirt and leggings, and tons of necklaces and bracelets of all kinds. She has no shoes

no weapon

Is enthusiastic and simpleminded. She loves animals and people, there are few things or people she dislikes. But among them is Gustav. She is sweet, cheerful and giving, but does have a dragon hiding inside her that will destroy you if you anger her. Fortunately, she isn't angered easily.



And now...!

I do vaguely remember this. I just googled the title in my own language and I'm still not entirely sure.... Badger looks very familiar to me but gosh I can't remember anything else.

In my defense, I was very young!

There's another film version of The Wind in the Willows?

Hmm, never saw this version. I only ever saw Disney's adaptation of these stories in The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.


Soon her ice dragon would come for her, and she would ride on its back to the land of always-winter.

Oh that Thunder stole the subject..

I've watched both of those! I was probably 4 or 5/6 when I watched it xD.

I find them so cosy and peaceful to watch. I actually had a game I used to play of it. Can't remember what it was called.

 (More of a Harry Potter fan though. Hail the Potterheads xD)

 ​​Hiclow, also known as Hiclow the Crazy, is a 14 year animal lover who ALWAYS puts animals before herself. She has thick, puffy brown hair and muddy green eyes (her parents swear the other one is a mix of brown and green). Her Woolly Howl, Thunder, sticks to her like glue and they have a unbreakable friendship.
