The Last Turns

 

The wounded Raincutter was persistantly clever, evading Boremaw's searing flame coil and Vent's charged up gas emission. A familiar ominous blue glow was approaching from the east. My endurance was getting low but I had to protect my winged friends. After all, I raised them since they were hatchlings. Abandoning them was unthinkable. I trudged through the snow waving my sword to draw the Flightmares' attention. Their luminous bodies lit up the ground as they swooped down and encircled me. My dragons rushed to help. With a gesture of my hand I ordered them to halt. It was for their safety. Even though they were mighty titans the Flightmares could easily paralzye them with a single breath. I was now imprisoned by a wall of mist. The pallid dragons swirled around with no means of escape. The Raincutter hovered over the glowing particles and took aim at its stranded prey. Whoosh! Whoosh! A gush of liquid ice blasts against the Raincutter's wings. It flutters, trying to stay airborne. Frost rapidly covers the wings and solidifies them. The Raincutter enters a free fall, headfirst through the mist. It tumbles, plowing through the snow before crashing into the Flightmares. I ducked and rolled around to avoid becoming part of the pile. The deadweight of the petrified dragon injures the two. They crawl out from under the Raincutter and fly away into the night. I focus at the low overcast and wonder where that shot came from. Icebound comes into view, hovering down from the clouds, his gaping jaws emitting a descending draft of chilling air. That crafty Snow Wraith has always had my back.

 

I carefully plodded around the Raincutter and between the gap of mist it created. Once safely through, Boremaw let off a roar of victory while Vent and Flare happily thumped through the snow toward me. She stopped and the heads growled as she sensed that the battle was not yet over. Two dragon hunters marched around the corner. One wearing a green camouflage vest and the other wearing red. They caught me off guard and was unable to defend. I was badly wounded. My dragons blasted ice, gas and fire in retaliation. We manage to send the green vest running. Sadly, I collapsed at the feet of the red vested hunter after taking the final blow...

 

 

"This is the end, you dragon riding dog." The hunter lowers his axe near my helmet.

I struggle on my hands and fight the urge to give in to defeat. "Impressive," I said with a cough. "Never thought I'd lose to a low rank hunter like you. You're on fire."

"Yes I am. Wait... what?" He looks around and sniffs the air. "OUCH!" He instantly ignites.

I glance at Boremaw whose mouth is smoldering, her teeth rotating slowly to a stop. I chuckle at the fleeing hunter. "When a dragon rider says 'you're on fire', most of the time they literally mean it."

The hunter dashes to a distant pile of snow to smother the flames.

 

Flare nips the fur of my bewilderbeast chestplate and lifts me on her back. "Thanks girl. Looks like this shivering scrap is over. Okay, everyone. Let's head back to Berk."

This is my first attempt writing fan fiction. Let me know what you think.

Back-story:

 

Fierce is a nice title. It strikes a hint of dread and warning to those who intend to do harm to the people of Berk. When I was young and lanky I was called by the less flattering title Victor the Frail.

 

I was born into the world at the worst time possible. On the coldest night of the season during a dragon raid. My father was killed protecting my mother and I. He fought bravely defending the village. A determined Monstrous Nightmare would have destroyed us all if it hadn't been for the valiant Vikings guarding those injured seeking refuge in the Great Hall.

 

Due to the cold I caught an illness. No one expected me to survive through the first winter. My mother did not give in to despair but persevered to nurture her newborn.

 

At the age of five I was beginning to understand the world around me. I also harbored an intense hatred for the creature's responsible for our constant losses especially that of my father. It became my ambition to be a heroic dragon fighter. But my body was too weak even for my age. I occasionally would catch illnesses which required my mother to frequently hike all the way to Gothi's hut to treat my ailments. This was a regular occurrence year after year. My mother did not allow me to go anywhere too far from our hut for fear I might perish from exposure of short change of temperature.

 

After suffering for five more years I got fed up with my frailty. I still couldn't lift a hammer or swing an axe. People were starting to call me "the Frail". Not anymore. I will not go down in my family's history as a weakling. So my training began. I made a exercise routine that strengthened both body and mind. Eat a healthy diet, no matter how tough and tasteless the food is. Running up to and from Gothi's hut got the blood pumping, mostly because I had to transport her medical supplies. Astrid was a good sparring partner, she taught me several combat techniques with Snotlout as the target dummy. Playing pranks with the Thorston twins sharpened my mind as well as studying the Book of Dragons and other books with Fishlegs. If I ever was going to fight those fire fuming beasts I needed to know about what armor and weapons to use. Gobber's smithy was a good place to learn. He and Hiccup taught me some valuable skills of the trade before my mother dragged me back to the hut.

 

By the time of my fifteenth birthday I noticed I've grown a considerable amount of toned muscle. My ailments seemed to disappear too. My mother was more relaxed and didn't fret when I left the hut. I was permitted to apply for Dragon Training. It was rigorous. Some of us almost got blasted by a clumsy Gronkle. I'd like to say I trained with Hiccup and the gang but no; I was with a different group of teens. Valery the Bright was a dragon nerd. She had spent more time studying the Book of Dragons than any of us would care to. Her face is innocent but her hammer is best to be avoided. Dirk the Daring was one of the most promising students in class. He was tall, strong and a bit bossy. Actually, a lot bossy. He saw me as a rival and challenged to fight when the opportunity presented itself. Kira Courageous. A strange girl from... she doesn't recall. Perhaps an island somewhere in the archipelago. She is a very strong and knowledgeable person who can be easily underestimated.

 

We almost graduated that year. Hiccup befriended a dragon, a Night Fury, the rarest of them all. And not only that. He discovered the Dragon's Nest and defeated what was causing our misery. I heard it was a gigantic mountain sized beast called the Red Death. Since then we had made peace with the dragons. However, my ambitions were crushed. At first, I never joined along with the village when they adopted dragons of their own. The death of my father and the lingering grudge was hard to let go.

 

One day I decided to join the school. The goal was to drown the bad memories and the hatred of dragons by understanding them for more than their destructive capabilities. The dragon I adopted was a Monstrous Nightmare. This one hatchling set my destiny. One that I would be most crucial to.

 

A little info about the real world me:

I'm a guy. As if you couldn't tell from the name of my main Viking.

My hobbies are drawing, writing and playing videogames. I'm not too physically active but I do regular exercise so I'm not a total couch potato.

I like to draw logos, my own characters and the outfits that they wear. Adobe Illustrator CS5 is what I mostly use and I rarely draw on paper ever since I got the program. I'm also able to draw what I see, like clothing/armor/hairstyles. But I end up altering the design into something different. I respect other peoples' artwork.

I have three science fiction novels I'm working on. One is complete. They are about alien species and advanced technology. The main characters grow up from teens to adults as the novels progress. I've written a game idea for the second novel and have written about many species of aliens. They all have unique traits and abilities. None of them are hideous by the way. I also work on bits of fan fiction once in a while just for amusement. It never gets completed because I get bored of it quickly.

Thanks!

This first started out as a screenshot. Notice the big gap between the paragraphs. That was supposed to be a picture inserted there but didn't show. I wanted to show how I was defeated yet my dragons beat the red vested (gas) hunter. He had 800 health remaining and was 1148 burning (done by Boremaw) and 72 poison (done by Vent and Flare). A story started building in my mind and I decided to write about it as fan fiction.
