Cloud-Flying in Dragon's Edge
So, I found this out a few minutes ago whilst flying in Dragon's Edge. Basically fly 'till you're about this high up:
(Excuse the terrible photo)
Then, stop flying upwards and fly straight. It works best it you use the cursor (or fingers if on mobile) to make the camera view like this:
Lovely, isn't it?
I think it really makes you feel a part of the movies, and helps bring it to life a bit.
So, go on, shoot the clouds with your favourite fire-blasting buddy or hang out and enjoy the view! All my dragons love it, even Tomorrow, one of my nadders who was in a grumpy mood with me today..

Wow, that's cool. I'll have to try it one day!
VexyLu's family were warriors.
They have lived on Berk for generations.
Always training, VexyLu was an expert fighter.
She was also smart, logical, strong and very pretty.
She had fought countless people, all had failed to win.
But VexyLu's parents wanted her to be even better.
She was enrolled in school of dragons, so she would be unstoppable.
As soon as she enrolled, Berk was under attack from dragon hunters.
VexyLu was there and was required to help the dragon riders.
Apon mounting toothless, VexyLu successfully helped defeat the dragon hunters.
That is when she noticed there was a trapped dragon.
VexyLu picked the lock and there was a magnificent, purple sandwraith.
VexyLu and the dragon immediately bonded.
She called her Nibbles.
And that is how VexyLu became a dragon rider.
Since that day, many years ago VexyLu has been on countless adventures with Nibbles.
They have helped many Vikings around the school and Berk.
They have dealt with many enemies like; a death song, dragon hunters, green death, and more.
VexyLu has helped discover an ancient Viking civilisation.
Along the way, VexyLu has trained many other dragons.
VexyLu joined the Berk guard.
Every time an enemy ship approaches, it is taken down quickly.
She often rescues dragon eggs from the sinking ships.
VexyLu has a hut on dragons' edge.
She lives partly there, and partly at Berk.
In her spare time VexyLu enjoys hanging with her friends, racing, helping new students, and of course training.
She is an even better fighter than before and her parents are proud.
You can often find VexyLu at the training grounds, Berk, the edge, or ice storm island.
She often patrols these areas, looking for dragon hunters.

Meet Stormy Eyes, otherwise known as Stormy. As a child, she washed ashore Berk in a basket, and was taken under the wing of the Jorgenson Clan. It quickly became obvious that Stormy has pure Berserker tendencies, and most often, they're rather uncontrollable. Really, she means no harm- but running around the school with an axe, especially early in the morning, tends to have an effect on certain students around the school.
When she first came to the School, after encouragement from her clan, Stormy was viewed as dangerous and untrustworthy. She was only a teenager at the time, but she worked hard to make it obvious that she was much different than her bloodthirsty ancestors- though she's more closely related to the Berserkers than she would like to know.
Stormy's first dragon was a Skrill called Hurricane- she raised him from hatching, and the two have been best friends ever since. You might say the dragon and rider grew up together, and as Stormy won the trust of her fellow classmates and dragon riders, she also became well known for her impressive bond with the sometimes unstable dragon. Life was a challenge for a young dragon trainer and a Skrill, especially as a first dragon, but their equally hyperactive personalities soon forged a bond between them, which is something not seen often between a Skrill and a rider.
Now, at the age of 20, Stormy has grown a reputation as one of the most bombproof students in the School, heading up her own strike team called the Valkyrie Riders, and defending her "home" for the past 8 years. In the course of those 8 years, however, Stormy made a shocking discovery, that forced her to keep a deadly secret for a long, long time.
But she kept that hidden for many years, and the only one she ever told was one of the newest teachers to the School, and later, one of her partners in "crime": Eret son of Eret, former servant of Drago Bludvist. But that's another story....

♦The Valkyrie Riders♦
I've never cared for castles or a crown that grips too tight,
Let the night sky be my starry roof and the moon my only light.
My heart was born a hero and my stormbound sword won't rest,
I left the harbor long ago on a never ending quest.
Now I'm off to the horizon,
Where the wild wind blows the foam,
Come get lost with me, love,
And the sea shall be our home.
Proud lover of Skrills and the Berserker tribe!

Back to the Future
(I recently started getting into a show called Miraculous Ladybug. It remains to be seen if it will join my list of fandoms, but for now, let's safely say I am anticipating the release of Season 2. And yes, I'm not sure why.)
Some Facts About Me
1. I am a writer, and I enjoy it a lot.
2. I'm a naturally salty person. *throws salt, but not shade, since I'm short*
3. I write WAAAAAAAAY too much fanfiction. If you know one of my fandoms, chances are, I have a fanfiction on it.
4. I play the piano, the guitar, and the ukulele.
5. I'm completely in love with Dagur.
6. I'm a Star Wars fan but I didn't like the Force Awakens.

8. I had a bad accident on horseback five years ago, but now I own a horse of my own and can ride without fear.

10. I am patiently waiting for at least 50 sequels to be released. (HTTYD 3, JW 2, and PoTC 5, to name a few...)
11. My sister teases me for all of my fictional character crushes dying. (And they do. Believe me.)
12. Surprisingly, I can act. And I have a lot of fun doing so!
Dear writers: You know when your characters are having a good day, and then you crash their party with an awful plot twist and its SO MUCH FUN? Yeah, the feeling is kind of like this:
If you want to find out what I'm writing, you've come to the "write" place!
(Okay that was awful, I will excuse myself now)
For the Last Time
A HTTYD AU explaining and expanding on the Dragon Hunters' fanon ties to Drago Bludvist. Very spoilery, very emotional, very dark, and very feely. Takes place after the events of Race to the Edge and shows how the Hunters finally go up in flames- through the eyes of their mastermind.
The Quintar Chronicles
Callista Quinn gets an urgent message from her sister in Australia, saying that she's sending her daughter Resa to her in order to keep her safe and "explain" some things. But things go wrong when something- or someone- decides to blow Callista's apartment (and the whole city) up, which, along with Resa's claims of an alternate universe in dire need of Callista's help, sets into motion a course of events that won't be easily subdued.
Aided by a mysterious man called Taurus and his interdimensional traveling system, Callista is faced with a realm of mystical creatures and villains with evil agendas. If there really is another world out there- will Callista give up any chance for a normal life to save it?
In the year 2038, the world stopped spinning. Literally.
A catastrophic event that forces the human race to retreat into massive underground catacombs is so devastating that the world above as we know it is changed forever. Monsters and other creatures crawl out of the rubble. Humans are now subterranean creatures, living underground. The seasons, climate, and geography has been so drastically altered that things might never be the same again.
Years have passed. Every year, a "Sector"- or a district of humans living in what is now called the Underlands- is chosen for the Election. Four teenage villagers are selected to become Searchers; trained explorers who will explore the lands above.
Frederick thinks there's absolutely no way he's going to make it into the Election- nor does he want to. He'd be perfectly content staying below ground with his family and friends. But he can't control his destiny- and when he's tossed into a life-threatening adventure with three other young people, he knows he can't stop it.
The Key of Doomed Souls
Kinda explains itself, doesn't it? PotC fanfiction. A little bit of crazy, and a whole lot of madness.
The lands of Farrador are prosperous and (for the most part) quite peaceful. Wes lives a simplistic life as Captain of the Guard, training his regiment and patrolling the lush and beautiful lands of his home, though they seldom go into battle against the other kingdoms that are spread throughout the world. Instead, they battle monsters and creatures of unknown origins and frightening forms. But one week out of the whole year is set aside for festives- the Midsummer Festival, which not only is the most content and peaceful time of the year, full of celebrating and feasts, but a prime time for things to grow. Crop fields grow tenfold, trees shoot for the sky, and forests seem to expand on their own. It is certainly a time for celebration.
But the night of a grand feast, near the middle of the Midsummer Festival, one of King Mikael's trusted prophets receives a dire warning and a terrible prophecy. These events are closely followed by disaster, and when things go from bad to worse, six prophesied people- including Wes- must set out to brave their dangerous world and stop things from getting any worse.
The Siren's Lament (working title, it's kinda eh, PM me with any suggestions)
Captain Flynn, leader of a well-worn band of smugglers and privateers, is the commander of the vessel the Governess. He was raised on tales of sirens- wolves with the sweet voices of maidens, vixens of the sea. One of them, an ancient legend named Mirelei, has evaded his crew for quite some time. Dubbed the "Siren Hunter" by his crewmates, Flynn is searching for one siren, and one in particular- but he got more than he bargained for.
Flynn soon discovers he's not the only one on the hunt for Mirelei, but soon he begins to wonder if Mirelei really is a vicious creature, like the one that was sung about while he was just a boy. He has to make his decision soon- because if not, Mirelei's life- and his own- might be hanging in the balance.
Well, here's where I put all my RP and non-RP cinnamon rolls. Enjoy.
Eternally under construction, probably, since I procrastinate :D
A treasure hunter, a scoundrel, and a grave-robber; can you get much more untrustworthy than that? Well, Skari sure can. Unreliable and shifty, Skari uses his quick wit and charming personality to wriggle his way out of the toughest spots. He has a particular liking for shiny objects and is considered a thief-for-hire, occasionally, risking life and limb (though he's not overly fond of that). Once acquainted with him, you either realize right away he's not to be trusted- or, usually, you realize that much too late. On rare occasions, though, you can break open his heart of stone and find a soul of gold inside...well, I could be speaking literally or figuratively.
You won't hear much about Nellie on these forums, since I never RP with her, but in the rare case I say something about her, it's probably her superb shooting skills. Mildly terrifying, but if you're on her side, it's quite useful. She's got a lively personality, loyal to a fault and completely, blatantly honest. Though I mentioned her loyalty, it's true she's loyal to one person- her boss, of whom she self-appointed herself his personal bodyguard. Needless to say, he doesn't really mind. Especially since he sort of needs one.
Ah, Finn. Used primly in magic/cyborg/or-anything-like-that RPs, Finn is an interesting case. With the ability to shapeshift into a dolphin at will, you might say his name is apt...ha! Get it? Finn? Okay, I'll leave now. Anyways, he also has a metal arm, of which he's modified to do various things with. And yes, when he shapeshifts into a dolphin, he has a metal fin. It's rather funny. He's a huge sweetheart, which isn't saying anything for his rather bad past, and he likes long swims in the ocean in his free time...
Who said the Grimborn boys didn't have any family? (Well, no one, exactly.) I can't really say much about Iduna without giving a bunch of Race to the Edge spoilers, but she's observant, gentle, and quiet; and, honestly, no one exactly knows how she ended up marrying Viggo Grimborn and keeping a close eye on all his operations Beyond the Archipelago. She seriously can be scary if she wants to. Beware.
More coming soon! Whee! -dances away from all my impending tasks-
And here is the best Hiccup gif I have ever found. Enjoy.
After watching Family on the Edge:
A tribute to the fun personality-based choices you can make in Star Wars: the Old Republic.
I have two Sith Lord characters. One of them is sophisticated, collected, a devoted servant of the Sith Empire, and a really all around Viggo-style villain. The other is absolutely insane and defected from the Galactic Empire because they wouldn't let him have a pet Nexu.
Meet Chayaraa Argos and Tavos Xan, the chaos and order of the Sith Empire.
Well, you survived to the end, and now you probably know way too much about me :D The more you know, right? No? Okay. Anyways...
May the Force be with you!

Links to My Screenshot Comics
[She] liked winter best of all, for when the world grew cold, the ice dragon came.
~George R.R. Martin, The Ice Dragon
The ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear…
Ice dragons were rare...
Giant Prickleboggle: Cool like its icy blast
[W]henever it was seen the children would all point and wonder...
Tiny Prickleboggle: Cool under pressure
The ice dragon was a crystalline white, that shade of white that is so hard and cold that it is almost blue.…Its teeth were icicles…jagged spears of unequal length, white against its deep blue maw.
Groncicle: Ice in its veins
It was covered with hoarfrost, so when it moved its skin broke and crackled as the crust on the snow crackles beneath a man’s boots, and flakes of rime fell off.
Frozen Groncicle: Carved out of the coldest, oldest glaciers
Its eyes were clear and deep and icy.
Shivertooth: Sharper than the cold of winter
Its wings were vast and bat-like…
Woolly Howl: Creates its own horrible weather
...[T]he beast wheeled in frozen circles through the skies.
Windgnasher: Picks up scents on the wind
When the ice dragon beat its wings, the cold winds blew and the snow swirled and scurried and the world seemed to shrink and shiver.
Snow Wraith: The roar of the chilly winds
Sometimes when a door flew open in the cold of winter, driven by a sudden gust of wind, the householder would run to bolt it and say, “An ice dragon flies nearby.”
Snoggletog Wraith: Guarantees a snowy festive day
And when the ice dragon opened its great mouth and exhaled, it was not fire that came streaming out, the burning sulfurous stink of lesser dragons.
The ice dragon breathed cold.
Bewilderbeast: The king of all dragons
Ice formed when it breathed. Warmth fled. Fires guttered and went out, shriven by the chill. Trees froze through to their slow secret souls, and their limbs turned brittle and cracked from their own weight. Animals turned blue and whimpered and died, their eyes bulging and their skin covered over with frost.
The ice dragon breathed death into the world; death and quiet and cold.
~George R. R. Martin, The Ice Dragon
Ice Dragon from the How to Train Your Dragon Book Series: The Doomfang
Doomfang by Moonlight Phantom
She was never quite sure whether it was the cold that brought the ice dragon or the ice dragon that brought the cold.
~George R.R. Martin, The Ice Dragon
And only a winter child—and the ice dragon who loved her—could save her world from utter destruction.
~George R. R. Martin, The Ice Dragon
Was I meant to laugh at the fact that you did that? I kinda did O,O
Yup, that's exactly what it's for. XD
Knew it :P
Also, you cost me and eyelash because my cat ripped one out when I laughed. I don't know how either..
