  Coming from a land where dragons have been hunted to near-extinction,

  I set out to find one of these magnificent creatures I have only read about.

  After much wandering about and even witnessing some from a distance,

  I met a trader who told stories of islands much further north

  where dragons flew free and riders rose on their backs into the skies.

  I managed to convince him of my genuine non-malicious interest and he

  agreed to take me there.

  

 This is how I arrived on Berk and, after a trial period, the island

 chief Hiccup allowed me to join the Dragon Training Academy. There I

 raised my very own deadly nadder, Ocean. Since then I have built a base

 on Sunnystone Island, a tiny volcanic island in the South of the

 Archipelago and even formed my own clan - "The Sunwing Voyagers"

 Now I travel far and wide, gathering knowledge, trading a bit here and

 there and having adventures.  

 

 My dragons: my exploration team

 (the dragons who regularly follow me in my exploits)

  Ocean (Deadly Nadder, f) – my first dragon and travel companion.

  I share a special bond with her, as I raised her from an egg and spent many a day 

  with only her for company. She is brave, loyal, curious and very intelligent, 

  often getting bored from inaction. Ocean is very comfortable around humans, 

  but sometimes dislikes sharing my attention with unfamiliar dragons. 

  She did, however, turn out to be surprisingly good with dragonlets. 

  She is a very steady and reliable flyer but does not much enjoy anything competitive.

 

  Viridi (Changewing, f) – the first addition to my exploration team.

  A trader whom I was helping out temporarily had a large and precious

  gem on his ship. I tried to convince him time and time again that he had  

  been duped and the bazaar merchant sold him a dragon egg, but he

  refused to believe me… until it hatched. I offered to take the dragonlet

  off his hands for a good supply of changewing acid once it grew up, and

  the trader was all too happy to get rid of the rather destructive and

  constantly disappearing little creature. As I was the first thing it saw

  when it hatched, the small changewing was eager to stay with me.

  Viridi was my most challenging dragon because it’s very hard to train

  something you can’t see half the time. Being a social creature, she accepted

  Ocean and me as part of her family and joined us on our many adventures.

  She is a quiet, careful, patient and observant dragon, who prefers to avoid

  human habitations and is very helpful in the exploration of the wild.

 

  Moonshine (Razorwhip, f) - Moonshine was picked up by Ocean, probably

  from some shipwreck, as she was completely covered in seaweed. She was 

  still very tiny and Ocean brought her up, becoming a sort of mother figure to her.

  Moonshine is a very happy and energetic dragon: she is in constant movement

  and always wants to play. She lacks any concept of seriousness or caution, so it

  can be quite difficult to have her around on journies, but definitely entertaining.

  At first Ocean was the only one who could get Moonshine under control,

  but after a lot of work, she started listening to me too (most of the time).

  

 

 

 My dragons:

 

 The Gronckcicle family

 

 Mountain (Gronckle, f) – a wild dragon from berk, which I trained to help  

 me with some tasks like iron and glass production or building (gronckle lava

 makes great cement). She mostly does her own thing, but enjoys living in

 my boulder class stable. She is also surprisingly fast for her species.

 

 IceCube (Groncicle, m) – I met him as an adolescent dragon on Ice Storm

 Island and managed to gain his trust by feeding him and helping him  

 rebuild his nest after a bad storm. He was really helpful during my

 exploration of this freezing land, especially when the temperatures got too

 low for poor Ocean (she much prefers warm weather). He followed me

 back to Berk and stayed after meeting Mountain. He is a strong, brave

 dragon, quite territorial and protective of his family. 

 

 RockMoss (Gronckle – part groncicle? – I think this might be a new species, m) –

 he is Mountains and IceCubes dragonlet. He is a very calm and likes nothing more

 than lying in under the shady canopy of a tree.

 

 

 The Sunnystone Island wild dragon reserve

 

  There a many stables carved on this island and close lying islets for wild dragons

  who are in need of a place to rest. Here I, along with the other villagers, help

  wounded dragons, learn the secrets of multiple dragon species, and train dragons

  to live side by side with humans, teaching them things such as not to fire at houses

  or scare farm animals and how to spot and avoid dragon traps. Some dragons

  move on and some, to my great excitement, have chosen to stay permanently.

 

  Thistle (Whispering death, f) - she was probably chased off from her home.

  Despite that, she is a rather affectionate dragon.

  Sprite (Shockjaw, m) – he was probably one of the many new shockjaws brought

  to Berk, who didn’t find an owner – seems unafraid of people.

  Sky (Stormcutter, f) - she stayed on the island after being raised here by her mother.

  Interestingly, she and Sprite have become good friends and can be often seen flying together.

  Lightclaw (Speed stinger, f) - she is part of the speed stinger pack on Ice Storm island.

  She hatched outside of hatching season and had a bit of a limp, so had trouble keeping

  up with her pack. She also appears to have very weak venom compared with other

  speed stingers. She was often left alone and, since I gained the packs' trust, I decided

  to take her in untill she grew stonger. She has now returned to her pack, but she still

  likes to join me on my travels occasionally. She especially likes flying on Oceans back.

  Scrap Metal (Armourwing, m) - he is a very old wise dragon. He enjoys spending his days

  sunning on the warm cliff ledges of Sunnystone Island and playing with baby dragons. 

  I'm not sure why he has not gone to Vanaheim, but maybe armourwings don't go there. 

  He can be quite handy at times as a mobile store of metal.

  Bonfire (Monstrous Nightmare, m) - his egg was found somewhere by Scrap Metal and

  he was brought up by the old dragon. Bonfire is very easygoing and not quite what you'd

  expect a nightmare to be.

 

My clan: The Sunwing Voyagers

 

                                          

 

We are a clan of peaceful travellers, artists, scholars and traders. Our success is determined by skill and patience. Adventures await!

 

We fly to the edges of the archipelago and far beyond, expanding our horizons and exploring new lands. We are talented, creative and resourceful and we are ready to help any new friends we meet. The Sunwing Voyagers are a peaceful clan and we prefer to settle any conflicts with diplomacy rather than violence. We love dragons and we are always ready to learn new things, using our extensive knowledge of their ways to aid people and dragons to peacefully coexist and help each other.

 

 

 

 

This is a special clan where the skill within the game determines the success of its members. It is for those who have never taken the easy way of buying a membership or using gems to instantly get tens of dragons, all the most expensive armour and saddles, to do easy farming and fishing etc., etc. We take time to enjoy the progress of the game. (The rule on gems is flexible)

It is allowed to use filters/effects

2. Add some funny captions (you can also add writing onto the screenshots themselves, such as speech and thought bubbles, etc.)

 

20-30 August

 

3. Post your entries here and browse the comics other members have created :)

 

On the first of September, when I am back from my travels, I will look over the comics, disqualify any that do not adhere to the rules and set up a voting process.

Prizes:

A "Nature painter" trophy with your name on it drawn by me, which you can add to your signature

(maybe something else - open for discussion in the clan letters)

Only first place will get a prize as we have very few members

 

Good luck!

Profile picture: Created by me.

 

I will be inactive for about a year. I'll be checking in the forums at least once a week, during the weekend.

I accept all friend requests (see friend codes below) and I read all PMs. I accept all debates, as long as they are mature and in PM form. I accept all art trades, requests, and commissions (dragons only, please; I cannot draw humans very well). I accept all art you submit to me. I respect everyone, rude or not, but I will not converse with those who are closed-minded, rude, and won't listen.

 

I am also a gamer. I play multiple games...just to name a few: I play Minecraft, Terraria, Team Fortress 2, Fallout (New Vegas, 3, and 4), Star Wars: The Old Republic (I love jedis), School of Dragons, Trove (Dracolyte ftw), Don't Starve (go Webber!), Creativerse, Vainglory (Taka main, if you cannot tell), Roblox (I enjoy the military groups), Skyrim (go Argonians!), Oblivion, and Portal.

 

I love Red Foxes, Grey Foxes, Great Pyrenees Mountain Dogs, German Shepherds, Grey Wolves, Mexican Timber Wolves, cats, horses, mice, dragons, and reptilian creatures.

 

My favorite dragons are Triple Strykes, Deadly Nadders, Monsterous Nightmares, and Gronckles.

 

My favorite class is the strike class, and I love intellegent dragons the most. My second favorite class is the boulder class, because I love a dragon with a warm heart.

 

I'm hoping to work at an Endangered Wolf Center when I'm older, or a zoo.

 

Braving the storm with my friends.

1° Silver and her dragon Sky

 

^ By BoomBox ^

 

Backstory 

 

Silver was born and grew up in Berk,her family hates dragons and wanted to get rid of them.

One night the young girl war out for repel the dragon who were attacking the village,at one moment while she was distracted a white night fury had gripped her and carried away from Berk.

Silver during the trip was faint and when she resumed her senses she found herself in the middle of a group of night furies on an unknown island.

The island was of volcanic origin and everywhere was scattered ash that gave a grayish color to the ground.

The girl saw that she had no way to go home and decided to live on the island she called:"The Island of the Night".

The years passed and Silver learned to know the dragons that lived on the island,but there was a very special dragon,it was the night fury that had kidnapped her...

The beautiful exemplar was the alpha that reigned on the island and seemed to want Silver to become her friend or even her knight.

And so it was,the young girl caught a strong bond of friendship with the dragon she called Sky.

Silver whit the materials on the island built a saddle and began to fly with her new friend.

Day after day their bond grew stronger and the girl decided to try to get back to Berk on the back of her dragon and convince the vikings that the dragons aren't evil as they think.

Her plan worked and Silver agree to stay at Berk with her beloved companion Sky.

I simply love these posters! However I would like to say, I don't hate other ships, but I love Hiccstrid more. I don't mind crossover work on occassion, but I hate it when people have to bad-mouth Astrid to make their pairing better.

To paraphrase my dad "If you gotta put down another to strengthen your point, you have a weak point."

 

 

And I LOVE books

 

 

 

 

 

did I mention being a fan-girl?
