The Dragonsblood Curse
((A note: I got permission from Scensoredearchers, the original creator of this roleplay-turned-fan-fic, to rewrite it as a fan fiction. This has nothing to do with my Big Challenges series.))
Every five-hundred years, a mysterious fog known as the Fog of Death descends upon the wilderness of Berk, Only brave or insane Vikings dare venture into the fog...and no viking who ventures into the fog is ever seen again. What the VIkings don't know, however, is that the fog is actually the result of an incient magic called the Dragonsblood Curse, which turns the unfortunatey souls who venture deep enough into the for into the dragon species that last crossed their mind...
My name's Rovik, Wind RIder of the North. You are my last hope. Only with your help could I ever hope to defeat Wieland the Immortal and break his horrible curse.
So...are you in?
I sat up, chest heaving from fear as my dream played itself over and over again in my mind. I was damp with sweat, and scared. Hiccup rolled over, sparked up the candle again, and sat up, rubbing his eyes.
"Sis? You okay?" he mumbled sleepily. I hugged my arms to myself, and tucked my knees to my chin.
"F-fine," I stammered. "J-just a n-nightmare. I'm gonna go for a flight, maybe see if I can get the nightmare from m-my mind." I threw my covers off and raced down the stairs, making a light pat-pat-pat-pat-pat across the floor. I ripped open the door and ran outside. Darrien, my trusty white Nadder with pale blue plumes, followed me closely. I jumped off the nearest cliff, and he caught me. I couldn't help but think of how my brother could always help calm me down, even Toothless could soothe me after a nightmare. Then I felt my hand start to itch. I looked down at it and jumped onto Darrien`s saddle with a scream. My hand was swelling, turning into a club-like foot covered with...black scales? I looked down at the rest of me and noticed my clothes were beginnng to fade as my body stretched and changed into a strange, foreign shape. I shook my head, not realizing I was also weighing my dragon down.
It was all just a dream. I decided to test that theory by jumping from my dragon's back and spreading my black wings. I was right, it was a dream. I switched into my second language: Dragon Speech. C'mon, Darrien. Let's get outta here. This fog is getting thick! We banked and headed back toward home.
You look good as a Night Fury, he commented just before we landed.
I walked up to the house just as Hiccup opened the door and came out, rubbing his face sleepily. He stopped upon seeing me and Darrien. He started doing these weird motions and reached out a hand toward me, looking away as I approached.
"Okay, really? Trying to train your sister? Real impressive, Hiccup," I smirked in Norse. He looked at me in an instant, face going dreadfully pale. "What?"
"Demon dragon!" he screamed running away from me. I chased him and pinned him to the ground, putting a foot, er paw, on his chest. "Please! Don't kill me! I'm only twenty! I haven't really had a chance to live yet!"
I rolled my eyes. "Meet my eyes!" I ordered. He did, hesitantly. "Do you think a demon dragon would have my eyes? In all honesty?" He stopped panicking and started studying my eyes.
"Nina?" he breathed. I nodded and let him up. "What? But-How? Y-you're a Night Fury! A good-looking one, but still...A Night Fury! Wow!"
"Thanks, but flattery's getting you nowhere fast," I snarked.

Here are my adopted dragons.
Noche, from Smidvarg's Night Terrors. Thanks snowflake!
((Guys, I'm skipping to where the roleplay left off: Nina watching for the Wind Riders, Hiccup with purple hair and face (Something Nina didn't mean to do, but it's funny), and Rovik flying off to get information out of another cursed dragon. I'll see if I can get permission from Fleiri to use their character and get info, but for now, on with the show! Oh, and just another note: Scensoredearchers is the one who created Rovik, so he's her's no one else's. She just gave me permission to use him in this.))
I stared stubbornly out to sea, oblivious to the hunger in my stomach, and the dryness of my throat. I needed to make sure there was no sign of our approaching enemies, and by Thor I'd scout. A harsh Southern wind slapped me in the face, smacking of lightning, hail, and freezing rain. I shivered, steeling my resolve, and banked back toward Berk after completing my rounds. I landed by my tree-lab, instinctively reaching for the cupboards, only to find that my paw was too big. I sat down and hmph'd about my predicament. Herby flew up with a bag and showed me the progress we'd made in the collecing the pearls. A quarter of a bag of pearls ranging in size and varying shades of color.
"That's all fine and dandy, Herby, but we both know that there's not enough for one month's payment," I said sadly. I dropped to the ground, laying down on the floorboards, head on my front paws.
"Why not use the pearls we already collected?" he suggested. I lifted my head and gave him a strange look, completely clueless as to what he was talking about. Then it hit me.
"No, Herby. I won't use the gifts you Terrors gave me! It wouldn't sit well with me," I protested. He held up his paws.
"Don't complain. We did it to make you happy then. Now the bag sits unused, the pearls inside it not seeing the light of day," stated he, listing off the reasons why I should add my collection of pearls to the bunch that we had already. My shoulders sagged with defeat.
"Fine. I-I'll get them from the Bunker," I sighed. I took to my wings and flew to my secret hideout I called the Bunker because of its ability to house whatever needed to be stored. I nosed through the junk in the closet, finally coming up with an enormous sack that was half filled with pearls collected over years of snacking on oysters. I grabbed it in my front talons and tried to carry it, managing to make it to a strong updraft, where I stilled my wings and rose above the trees. I flapped my wings and made it back to the village, struggling against gravity. I dropped my burden in the village square. I landed next to it, panting from exertion. "This is my pearl collection, but I don't know if it's enough."
Hiccup approached the bag and opened it. "Whoa! That's a lotta pearls! Nina, question: when did you start collecting them?" he asked.
"Well, erm, I actually collected them as gifts from the Terrors. Every now and again they'd spend hours and hours just sitting on beaches collecting pearls, then they'd bring the bag they'd collected to me, and surprise me with it. I just haven't really had use for them," I explained sheepishly.
I glanced down at the sack of pearls Nina had brought, blinking in surprise at it until I lost sight of it. I drew the wind in through my nostrils, tasting it for the scent of the Tidal Glider. I found her by a beach, huddled in a cave. I drug myself across the sandy floor to her and cleared my throat. She looked up and gave me such an angry, hurt look I flinched.
"What do you want?" she growled, her tone, while angry, was also sad.
"I just wanted to tell you that I will make sure that you are taken care of. My caretaker, Miss Parum, is gifted in the arts of healing. I believe she and the rest of the healers will be able to combat the illness you have before it kills you. I watched them work their magic on me," I said without thinking. I clapped a wing across my mouth, silently cursing and berating myself.
She lifted her head and fixed me with a confused, curious stare. "What do you mean?"
I sighed, removing my wing from my face. "When I was twelve, a great and terrible sickness swept through the Wind Riders, killing many. I had the worst treatable case they found, and yet, in spite of all their work, I still lost both my legs," I began. I felt a large lump swell in my throat, and swallowed hard. "My little sister-" I choked on the words before clearing my airways to continue speaking. "-Adina, had a case that wasn't caught in time. She was the first fatality, one our mother never fully recovered from. They didn't catch hers in time to heal it, only ease her suffering. She died only days after beginning treatment, but I know they can do something for you to buy you more time."
"I-I'm sorry, Rovik. I never knew," Eira murmured.
I did the equivalent of a blush and looked away. "I never told anyone," I said quietly. "I'd be quite surprised if you did know." I swung my head back to look at her kindly. "C'mon. Nina brought a huge sack of something to the square, and I'm curious as to what it is."
"O-okay," she stammered, suddenly quite shy. She gulped and we flew back to town just as Nina was explaining what the sack contained.
"So, you're telling me that you've had enough for one month's payment and half another?" Hiccup said slowly. I sighed and rolled my eyes, beyond tired and into exhausted from explaining things twice.
"Yes, Hiccup," I answered for the umpteenth time. "I haven't had need for them in any of my inventions, as they mostly required easily woven materials, or metal. Neither of those are pearls. I did use four of them in one of my inventions, but that was just for looks more than anything."
"What'd you make that needed four to decorate it?" Astrid asked.
"This," I reached into my hip-bag and pulled out a beautifully decorated hairpin that showed a lotus bloom with a small dragon in the center. Two, tiny, black pearls made up the eyes while two larger white ones were placed on either side to depict the stamens, or pollen holders. It was made of gold, and I was almost comically proud of it. I handed it to her and she marvelled at it, eyes huge with wonder. Gobber held out a hand for it, and she passed it under my watchful eye.
"'Tis incredibly beautiful, Nina, but whot's it useful fer?" he inquired. I gently took it from his hand and Astrid wrapped her braid around into a bun and I pinned it for her. The little dragon in its flower nest held its new home together while accenting the beauty of it. "Ah...Stunning."
"Just like the woman wearing it," Hiccup said quietly. Astrid blushed and I snickered when he realized he'd spoken aloud.
"I tried making it with precious gems, but I couldn't find any that were easy to incorporate," I explained. "I also had to use Herby as the idea for the dragon when he was in a nest of furs. I found the model for the flower in one of the ponds. It's a lotus blossom, commonly called a lily pad flower. It goes through three feet of mud, and sludgy water before finally coming to the surface and showing it's throat to the sun, praising it's warmth and steadiness. It's also the crest of strength and determination."
I pushed the first payment into the crack between the boulders where the dwarf who had inadvertently lead me to the Kingdom of the Dwarves had hidden, then turned to leave. I decided to go for a quick flight, and scout for the Wind Riders perhaps. I landed on the bone fence, thankful whale bone was strong enough to hold my weight. I squinted and peered as far out to sea as I could, finally spotting a ship, or rather a group of them, heading to Berk under full sail. I didn't know what the Wind Riders' sails looked like, but I wasn't about to take any chances. I took to my wings and sped back to the village square where I stopped and landed on a roof, thankful it didn't collapse when I dropped onto it. I slipped into Dragon Speech when I realized there was the entire village there.
Guys, I think our guests are almost here. I saw an armada-type formation coming in from the North. They were a fair distance off, but I could just barely make out a crest, I said breathlessly. I flopped down before slipping off the roof onto my back, landing on my wing in a funny way. I cringed and wiggled around until my wings and legs were arranged in a non-painful manner. Rovik bolted to where I was sprawled, eyes wide with alarm.
You're sure you saw an armada coming in from the North? he urged. He reached around and pulled a slip of paper from his bag and held it out over my nose. I looked at it and thought back to what I'd seen. This is the Wind Rider's crest.
That's what I saw. Like I said, devil of a distance off, so I might be mistaken, but-woof! I yelped as he scrambled over me, dragging himself across the ground and up a tree. He glared North, obviously vexed at my news. I folded one wing tightly to my side and rolled back onto my feet. I can show you where I saw them. You might be able to identify more precisely since you're familiar with your, er, commanders.
Show me, he requested politely. I took to my wings, grateful that there was a strong wind carrying us to where I'd seen the incoming ships. Rovik landed beside me, narrowing his eyes and searching. Suddenly he began to growl, then he said two words that made my blood run cold: It's them.
I took to my wings and fought the wind that had risen since that morning. Rovik snarled and swore in Dragon Speech at the wind's strength and ferocity. I wasn't too worried about it, however, because it meant the wind wasn't favorable for the invaders either. I had a lot of experience with sailing, so I understood and knew the wind patterns around Berk better than any other. Rovik began to flag behind, and I dropped back beneath him.
Grab...my...harness... I panted to him. I felt his claws dig gently into the soft leather of my jerkin and I flew for both of us, as Rovik's giant wings meant he acted like a living sail, catching every bit of wind, slowing him down. We moreorless crashed into the square. "Our...guests...are...almost here," I gasped in Norse to Hiccup when he came over worriedly.
Oooh, suspense! I wonder how the Berkians will fight against the Wind Riders, especially since both sides use dragons! XD Looking forward to the next chapter!

A dull boom reached our ears as evening fell. Rovik raised his head and looked into the distance, fear evident on his dragonesque features.
They're inside the fence. They used one of their dragons to destroy the bones, he whispered, terror hidden behind his confident, certain tone.
Let them come. We've faced worse, I grumbled. Rovik looked at me curiously. Drago Bludvist, Dagur the Deranged, a Red Death, and many others besides. His pupils widened at my words. He clearly wasn't expecting my response.
Bludvist. That's the madman who called himself the god of dragons, right? he said. I nodded.
He had a Bewilderbeest who brainwashed Toothless into attacking Hiccup. Dad pushed him out of the way and saved his life... I murmured quietly after checking to confirm Toothless wasn't within earshot.
Seconds later Hiccup seemed to hear the boom as well, for he turned to the direction we were already looking before ordering everyone in the village to prepare for our visitors.
"If need be, we will fight to defend Berk. We've faced tougher men, some enemies in our midst as well, but we pulled through," Hiccup called, bringing everyone to silence. They slowly, as though hesitating, began to move. They clearly weren't prepared for his words.
Hiccup and I stood at the top of the wooden boards leading to the docks, not as a threatening force, but as a curious, guarded welcoming party. The Wind Riders docked their boats, the crunch of a few timbers on the berthed fishing vessels audible from there, and disembarked. They came bearing weapons and dragons who immediately surrounded Toothless, bowing out of respect to the Alpha.
"Now, see here! What's the meaning of this?" someone roared in outrage as the large Skrill he was riding dipped his head and bowed to the Night Fury.
Hiccup spoke up. "They're bowing to the Alpha. This is Toothless. I'm Hiccup, chief of the Hooligan Tribe. I take it you are the commander of the Wind Rider army?" he inquired politely.
"That's Commander Mivrod to you, lowly chief," sneered the man. I felt my hackles raise, but forced them down to keep my anger invisible. I couldn't keep a slight growl back though, and I glared at the ground, curling my lip slightly. "Get off my island, Hiccup." My eyes widened, and I knew my eyes would be nothing but slits. I took a deep breath, and let it out. "What's wrong with that dragon?"
I snapped. My head immediately raised and I glared at him. I was treading on thin ice, but I was too angry to care. "This is not your island. This island is the only thing my father left to my brother. I won't tolerate bigots and foolish invaders who think they can take care of things their own way by kicking us out of our homes. We've been here for seven generations, over three hundred years, whereas you have only been here less than five minutes! We're willing to share the island with you, but if you choose to take it by force, I will have no choice but to unleash my fury on you!" I snarled, my teeth bared by the end of my speech, which I was screaming at the conclusion. "If memory serves, Commander, it was one of your men, Wieland the Immortal, who cast this spell, turning myself and several others, including my friends, and their family, into dragons. If you still think there's only one way to defeat your man, then go off and face him yourself." I snorted and stepped back when Hiccup put his hand on my neck, a gentle sign of "enough."
Mivrod's face had grown crimson at my outburst. He made as if to attack, but my Terrors suddenly appeared from underneath me, growling and glaring viciously at him.
I flinched back when the Commander roared in outrage. He jumped down off his dragon and charged at me. Faster than the eye could see, Hiccup stepped in front of me, shielding me from the invader's onslaught. A woman bolted from the crowd of invaders and stood before Hiccup, blocking him and causing my attacker to stop short or risk running her over.
"Daughter! Move aside! These barbarians are shielding Wieland, our mortal enemy," he ordered in a growl.
"No, Father! They merely seek to protect their home," snapped the young woman, about my age. "We can set up base camp here, but we must remember our code of ethics: To Protect the Innocent, and Serve those oppressed." Mom pushed her way to the front.
"What is going on here?" she demanded. She stopped upon seeing the Commander. "Mivrod."
"Dragon Lady," he greeted her in an icy tone. "Might I inquire as to the reason you reside among these barbarians?"
"Barbarians? I'm sorry, sir, but this is my home. Hiccup is my son, and Nina is my daughter. Any threat to them is a threat to me," she hissed. I looked at her in shock.
"You know him?" Hiccup and I said at the same time. Under any other circumstance, it would have been funny, but at the time the humor was lost on us.
"Of course she knows me, she was, after all, my girlfriend for a while," sneered Mivrod. My eyes widened and I gaped at Mom.
"WHAT?!?!" Hiccup and I bellowed.
"There was never any romantic interest between you and I, Mivrod. The feeling was never mutual," Mom replied calmly. "I would never betray my husband in any way."
"Well, where is your husband? I wish to fight him for your hand," Mivrod growled. My jaw dropped and dangled in the air. A sad look came to Mom's eyes, but I saved her from having to respond.
"He was slain in battle," I said. "So you can still fight him if you want, but it's like fighting the wind: It will always win because you can't harm the air."
"Ah. Well that means I win by default," he crowed triumphantly. I reared back and surrounded Mom and Hiccup, who seemed about ready to burst a blood vessel, with my wings. "Out of my way, Dragon."
"If you want my mother, you need to get her the right way: earning her love, not taking her. If you expect her to fall for you when kidnapped, that only works with dragons. For twenty years she lived among them, having only fleeting contact with humans," I hissed. I winced as he began beating my wings with his fists, trying to pry them apart and get to my mother. I whispered to Hiccup, explaining what was going on, and he stepped in front of Mom, shield up and at the ready. He also pulled out his firesword, prepared to flick it open and light it at a moment's notice.
"Father, stop!" a young man cried, leaping up beside the young woman who had stopped the previous attack.
"Movrad! Get back in line, now!" roared Mivrod.
"No, Father. This is wrong, us attacking a dragon. Even as a cursed dragon, she is still a dragon. We swore off killing dragons when Valka Dragon-Lady taught us that they weren't a danger," Movrad yelled.
"You snivelling weakling! You're just as bad as Rovik! If that's what you want, then so be it! You're not a Wind Rider, you're not my son," snarled the Commander. The young man gasped and hung his head in shame briefly.
"If being your son," he said in a low voice, "means attacking without cause, then good! I don't want to be your son!" A collective gasp went up from the Wind Riders as Movrad and his sister moved to stand in front of us. "We don't have to attack Berk, Mivrod, we can work with the locals. They know this island better than we, so they could tell us the best hiding places."
"I refuse to work with such ruthless, untrainable, unchangeable ruffians! Wind Riders fall in!" ordered Mivrod. "We'll search this entire island until we find our quarry. Any who stand in our way will be punished. Speaking of punishment. Rovik!" Rovik came forward, head hung as low as he could in his current form. "I hereby revoke your position, and remove you from my army." He gasped and pain flitted across his features. MIvrod smirked at his discomfort, and I growled softly, baring my teeth,
When the last hostile left the village, I released Mom and Hiccup, who jumped out and flicked out his blade. I snorted, blowing the flames out and snickering at his confused look. He looked up at me curiously and I smirked.
"Oh," he said when it clicked that I'd blown his firesword out. "Why?"
"Really?" I raised a scaly eyebrow and looked around. He followed my gaze and saw he'd burned a penant with a sword and flame crossed on it. It crumbled to ash at his touch and he flinched back when his face became covered in soot. I chuckled, burbling deep in my throat and brushed a club-like forepaw across his face, smearing the black off his face. It wasn't happening any time soon, so I licked the limb and ran it over his face again, with more success this time.
"EW! Nina! That's disgusting!" he groaned. Mom and I laughed at his revolted look.
I sat back on my haunches, front paws on my knees, and looked at Hiccup as he grumbled and wiped his face off. I gurgled a chuckle deep in my throat. I switched my gaze to Mom as she began playing with one of my wings, a sure sign that there was something bothering her. I nudged her with it and she met my eyes. She flashed a quick smile before averting her eyes, playing with her fingers instead.
I looked around quickly before leaning over to her. "Something's bothering you, and I demand answers. Wait until we get back to the house before we discuss it, Hiccup present as well," I murmured into her ear. She nodded and embraced my head. Hiccup kicked a small rock at me with his boot, glaring when I just flicked my tail once in annoyance.
"Not fair," he muttered under his breath. I pulled a face at him jokingly and he doubled over laughing. "You look like you just ate or tasted Mildew's socks!"
"Please don't joke about that," I moaned. "I went swimming around his farm and found a pair of dirty, stinky, gross old-man shoes and a strange-looking staff at the bottom of the sea. I've been traumatized by the whole experience and swore off ever going deep-sea diving again. Brrrgh!" I shuddered at the memory, fighting back my nausea.
Really? Did she just find the clinching missing evidence that Mildew set the dragons up in the first season? Made my day! LOL Keep writing, I love this story!

Excellent, Wonderful story! Beautifully drawn comic book featuring an apothecary/alchemist trying to fit in with other Vikings on Berk as she overcomes her fear of dragons and befriends a particularly special dragon. Set 10 years after the Battle of the Red Death. Highly recommend the read!

No Longer Alone by peterparkersgirlfriend
The entire first movie from Toothless' point of view. Beautifully written, I personally think it captures Toothless' personality and heart like a photograph made out of words. Excellent read!

The Helmet by peterparkersgirlfriend
All of Gift of the Night Fury from Toothless' point of view. Held to much the same standard as its predecessor, this story is full of plot twists, danger, and exactly what was going through Toothless' head. Includes how Toothless found Hiccup's helmet!
* * * * (1/2) stars
A bunch of one-shots about Hiccup, Astrid, and their new daughter. Embodies the very struggles that made the movies great. But instead of Stoick being the worried father, Hiccup takes the reins as he and Astrid try to raise their children to be not just warm, honest, and good people but good dragon riders as well!
* * * * stars
Basically, Hiccup is a viking Tarzan, raised by dragons. After a dragon raid, a peculiar machine shoots down a strange and dangerous dragon. And an even more strange and dangerous boy. Nothing short of spectacular, this book tugs at your heart strings and will pull you in like none other. Fabulous! It made me laugh, cry, and worry myself sick.

Shouldn't be hard to find. They're here on the forum!
Yes, she did find the condemning evidence. She had a particular method for deep-sea diving. WHen she dove she opened her mouth and filled it with sea water to "taste" where her prey was hiding. SHe got a mouthful of the foulest stuff known to man, even worse than Yaknog, and she puked underwater. She grabbed the offensive objects and removed them from the ocean. She didn't stop puking till she put them in a chest, buried six feet under, in a cave, on Dragon Island, in the Red Death's old nest.
"Mivrod and I met when I made my first raid on a village. It was a few months after I was taken," Mom said that night when we gathered back at our home. She sat down on a bench with a sigh, Hiccup taking up a seat beside her. I sat back on my haunches, paws on my knees, watching her. "I wanted to show them that people could change their ways, that peace was possible. But when I got there, they'd already changed, and they were surprised that I was riding Cloudjumper without a saddle." She trailed off, her eyes taking on a misty, far-away look. "Mivrod had lost his wife several years before, and he was instantly taken by me. He wooed me, but didn't get very far before I told him that I wasn't interested in him as a lover, but as a friend. He didn't get the hint, as when I left he had begun calling me his girlfriend. Ugh!"
"And he hasn't let that idea go," I finished for her. She looked up at me and nodded. "Some guys never get the hint. No offense, Hiccup."
"None taken," my brother replied. "Besides, if I had taken offense, what would you have done about it?"
"Well, I'd pin you to a tree and tickle you until you begged for mercy!" I answered, grinning wolfishly.
"Oh really? I'd like to see you try!" he squealed. I got down on all fours and began growling playfully, walking toward him until I realized what I was doing. I stopped and looked up at his confused look before ripping the door open and tearing out of the house. Soon I was airborne and flying toward my lab. ((Nina's scared she's getting too attached to the form she's in.))
I pulled out my cauldron and stew books, preparing to cook until I stopped thinking like a dragon and started thinking like a human again. I pulled some fish I;d smoke out of my cupboard and dumped them into the cauldron along with some mountain stream water.
Hm...What's next? I thought to myself, putting a clawtip to my lips. Seasonings! I grabbed some herbs and spices from the rack in my little kitchenette. I sprinkled them in, and put the whole shebang on the fire to cook. Soon the water was steaming and I decided to turn my stew into a chowder, so I added some yak milk I'd gathered from farming at school.
It turned a rich, creamy white as I added the new ingredient. I heard someone land just as a blindingly bright light filled the night sky. I groaned and closed my eyes, shielding them from the worst of the flash.
"You okay, Sis?" Hiccup asked me after a small yelp as the light reached his eyes too.
"F-fine. I'd say our guests found Wieland, and things didn't go as planned," I replied. I blinked and sniffed around, trying to find him. I found him staggering around, looking. My vision began to return so I knew that, blessedly, it wasn't permantent. He tripped and fell on my head.
"Thanks, Toothless," he said. I snickered.
"Not Toothless," I told him.
"Nina?" he felt around my head until he almos put his fingers in my eyes. I closed them tightly, though my eyesight was returning.
"Don't poke my eyes out!" I yelped. He withdrew his hands and I helped him to his feet. "Man, that was bright!"
"Yeah, who turned out the lights?" asked my brother.
"No one, they're still on. Your eyes are just dark from the sudden brightness. I theorize that it did something to them, essentially burning them, thereby making it nigh on impossible to see," I said. He blinked at me, though I could only see the most basic shapes with terribly blurry outlines. He squinted and looked around, so his eyesight must have been returning somewhat. "Better?"
"Eh, somewhat. I can see light and shapes, but not much else," he mumbled. Toothless had been behind Hiccup when the night turned into day suddenly and without warning, so he was fine for seeing. He and I both recoiled as a loud shrieking filled the air. I hit the deck and covered my ears, which Hiccup found alarming, especially when Toothless followed my example. "What is it? What's wrong, Nina? Toothless! What happened, Bud?!"
"Noise!" I shrieked, trying not to deafen him, but needing to get my point across.
"I'm being noisy?" he inquired, genuinely curious. I mentally facepawed, swearing at his stupidity.
"You really can't hear that?" I whimpered. He paused a moment.
"Oh," he said.
Well that's not strange at all. What happened to the lights? What the heck did Nina and Toothless hear?
Please write more? I don't like cliffhangers... :( :(
The noise faded as a shrieking noise whizzed past my lab. I lifted my paws and listened. The night had returned to its natural semi-quiet. I sighed with relief and nudged Toothless and Hiccup.
"We should go see what that was," I said. "To the village first."
We landed in the square where a large number of dragons, including a Terrible Terror who seemed very vexed at his predicament. I sniffed around and identified, with a sinking heart, the new dragons as the Wind Riders. I paused before I came to the Terror. I caught his scent and glared at him.
"Well, Mivrod. This could have been prevented," I snorted. He glared at me in stony silence. "Are you willing to cooperate with us now?"
"Do I have a choice?" he growled.
"Not really. In that form I could sit on you and you'd be incapacitated for a good long time. But I'm not that mean," I snickered. "All we needed was your help with getting pearls. We have another two months' payments to make up. Anyways, now that that's out of the way, were any of your men injured? Or just turned into dragons?"
"Just changed, ma'am," he grumbled, looking at the ground.
Don't you know the trapper's traps can trap the trapper? Excellent, DL, excellent!
Mivrod had it coming... (But Mivrod as a Terrible Terror?! XD ROFL!)
This is a great story, keep it up. Mivrod as a terror, ha! XD

I nudged Mivrod. "This could have been prevented, you know. If you'd listened to me when I told you that we were willing to help, you would still be humans. I was planning on telling you that there's a way to defeat Wieland. There are actually two ways: the easy way, and the right way. The right way is almost never easy, and the easy path is seldom right," I said gently. I heard him grumble some profanities and frowned, tipping him over and pinning him with a light paw. He squirmed under my paw, quite an amusing sight, then surrendered, meeting my eyes. His eyes were filled with remorseful defeat.
"When will the sword be ready?" he said at length.
"I'd have to ask the King of the Dwarves, His Majesty, King Turdoethr," I answered, letting him up. "I was planning on going to see them tomorrow at dawn. I'll bring you with me. You and Rovik, who I think deserves an apology from you, don't you agree?"
He whined and squabbled for a while before swearing to himself in surrender. "Fine. Where is he?" he growled at last. Rovik came forward. Behind him I could see a Tidal Glider surrounded by a bunch of what looked like healers. They had joined hands and were singing softly. A slight glow illuminated the group, clearly indicating that they were casting an incantation. I made a mental note to ask Rovik about it if it wasn't serious enough to be kept a secret.
"Greetings, Commander," Rovik said, dipping his head slightly.
"It seems I owe you an apology. You...you...you...were right," said the Terror with great difficulty. I nodded approvingly. "I still think three months is too long to wait."
"Ah-ah! No complaining. You really have nothing to complain about, Mivrod," I interrupted.
Again, good chapter. Hey, by the way, I was looking through my old art portfolio on my computer and I found this piece I did a long time ago of a human eye turning into a dragon eye. Putting it here, because I think it fits with the story pretty nicely. Sorry if it's not very refined-looking, this was one of my earlier pieces.
