I would like to bring some things to the attention of writers and reader.

 

1. Can Myself and other writers please stop getting hate because of our writing styles and how we base it. 

2. I have noticed that not alot of writers write about Astrid and the others as main characters, it's more Hiccup and Toothless. (i can see why tho) ( not being a hypocrite )

 

3. Should I stop my back story? I mean all the hate and not much love.... plus it isn't making lots of sence soooooo.

 

4. If i was to re-write my back story in a differnt way would people read it?

 

Thank you for reading, please reply if you aree or have anything else to say.

Don't stop writing your

Don't stop writing your backstory, don't care what anyone else thinks. There's nothing wrong with having SPaG mistakes(Spelling, punctuation and grammar).

I wish I hadn't given up on my backstory now, because now to anyone who reads my current fanfictions just get really confused.

If you think it doesn't make sense, just stop, look at your story and make a mind map of characters, villains, dragons, places etc. You can also get story planning apps which can help with these problems.

It's your story, you write it any way you want to. Don't care what anyone else thinks of it, it's your Viking, do what you like.

I will read it if you rewrite it.

Thanks,

Inthetardis2.

M'um m'aloo!

Pretty much what InTheTardis said! You're the writer, you can write what you feel like. I spent over 6 years writing things that I knew nobody would ever read but me, and yet it was alright, because I wrote for my own enjoyment and not the enjoyment of others. It's your story, you're the one holding the pen- so to speak. Don't let the hate or influence of others change your writing! It's yours, not theirs.

 

If you are looking to improve, however, I highly recommend studying the art of writing (yes, it's an art). Read other books you may enjoy and note the author's grammar, spelling, sentence construction, et cetera. One of the primary factors of me being the writer I am today was because I was an avid reader even at an extremely young age, and had an adult's reading level when I was 10. Reading literature you may enjoy isn't just fun, it also helps your writing a lot! It's a great way to improve skills.

 

Organizing information can also be a very good idea. I have what I call "plot dumps" and "character dumps"- a place to literally DUMP all my character and plot ideas in one gigantic, messy place. Unorganized though it often is, at least I have information at hand and can keep my plot, characters, and ideas semi-orderly. An online document or even a handwritten journal is a great place to put these "dumps"!

 

But above all, the most important thing in writing is to have fun with it. Writers are given literal freedom; we aren't restricted to the laws of physics or the demands of what others might think or want. We are the masters of our character's fates and worlds, so why WOULDN'T we have fun while doing what we love? We can go beyond all boundaries of the universe if we like, and who will stop us?

 

If you want to write, don't let anything stop you!

Rosemary

By KittyLlama

By DemonGuitarz on Da

Thanks a MILLION to Arrowalker for a AW-MAZING Pic of Rosemary!

Rosemary is hiccups sister, she is normally a very outspoken person who does not like strangers. She is shy around few people and loves to talk. she got her dragon when she went to her favorite cave when she saw the egg was hatching she looked over the edge of the cave where she was watching and fell down, the egg hatched and they bonded quickly. Now they soar the skies together with another freind they found injured. Shadow. They found her after escaping the hunters, she come up to them with a hurt leg they took her in and Shadow has been with them ever since.

 

This is Rosemary's weapon, credit to Mechfighter. Thanks!

This is Selecta and Sharp Shot, credit to Arrowwalker, TYSM!

Edit by me, base by animal girl

Name: Selecta Eye

Age: 18

Favorites: Rare dragons, Hunting common ones.

Dragon:Sharp Shot (Titan Whispering Death)

Occupation: Dragon Hunter, on ship and interrogator, not officially though

Backstory: 

she is just recently blind and has a hard time getting around, she dislikes people who just assume she can't do things because she is blind. She will try to prove herself which sometimes gets her into trouble. She is not heartless and will free the rare dragons (Behind the other hunters back) She will stand up to the other hunters if one of the dragons or prisoners are being hurt by them. She does not like the riders. Her mother died when she was young, Her father dissapeared at sea, her best friend Nathaniel is still at the base. Her freind and father-figure Ross runs a clothing shop near the middle of the base. She is good with a sword and is good at fighting if she needs to, those methods have been compromised since she has been blind though. She is strong and brave, good-hearted and rooted in her opinion. She loves to take long walks in the forest when on land, when on a ship she loves to talk to the other hunters and prisioners and maybe, if no one wants to talk she will talk to the dragons, she is careful around strangers but will talk to them to find out more, you could say she is an interrogator, but not officially. Once she trusts someone she will give her life for them.

(Some fan art, credit to piggy for the first and Alexandradragonrider for the latter, based off Wutends fan species)

Name: Blitz

Breed: SolarFlare Skrill

BackStory:

Blitz’ Story

“Come on, Opal, let’s land for the night” Rosemary whispered to her Black and green Titian RazorWhip, Opal. Opal dived down towards a rocky island, the island was home to a variety of rocks and a small lake, with a few fish that you could see swimming along in the sparkling, clear water. Rosemary looks over the rocky terrain and spots a cave, small but big enough to provide the two shelter for the night.

“Opal, let’s go down to the pond first, for dinner, then to that cave” Rosemary whispers to Opal, Opal rumbles in agreement as she alters her course to go to the pond.

 

 With a few strong beats from Opal’s large wings you come to a stop at the pond. “Feel free to fish, Opal” Rosemary says as she grabs her fishing pole and begins to fish.

As she fished and Opal frolicked in the water a large dragon, with blue spongy wings and very developed legs walked stealthily up behind her, Rosemary only noticed it after she felt it’s warm breath on her neck. She froze immediately out of habit, but gathered up her strength and turned around, “It’s a-a SolarFlare Skrill!” She whispers to herself as the beautiful beast looked angrily into her eyes, it was filthy, from head to toe (or claw as the case may be) and angry as a hornet. Rosemary gulped and wracked her memory on facts about this dragon, rare, a ground dweller, hates getting dirty. “Wait that’s it! Come on, let’s go give you a bath” Rosemary said as she attempted to train the female SolarFlare Skrill, which only ended in the dragon attempting to bite her hand off, “Plan B” Rosemary said as she ran into the water, startling the SolarFlare Skrill, and causing it to chase her. Rosemary saw her chance as the dragon stopped and in that moment of unbalanced distraction Rosemary dunked the dragon and began to scrub it with some sweet-smelling leaves that she had found while going through her pockets for something, the leaves were there, Rosemary had no idea how they had gotten there but, (Thanks to Opal) they were there. The SolarFlare struggled for a moment, but when she realized Rosemary was cleaning her she stopped and happily sat there, enjoying being cleaned.

When Rosemary was finished the dragon nuzzled her. “I will call you Blitz, is that ok?” Rosemary asks, the newly dubbed Blitz nodded in agreement. “Ok then, Blitz, nice to meet you” Rosemary said as she put out her hand to tame Blitz, who complied.

Rosemary finished her fishing and the trio went to the small cave, where they ate their dinner and slept for the night.

Ever since that day Blitz has been a constant companion of Rosemary.

We decided to investigate and together, me and Opal flew down. What we found supriesed us. There was three Scauldrons surrounding a baby dragon, not just any baby dragon but a Slackerish Sluggish! It's mother was gone.. I had no Idea what had happened, the small one had a scratch that was bleeding right next to it's eye. The poor thing couldn't protect itself so me and Opal fought off the Scauldrons. We brought the baby home and nursed it's wound and SwiftWings has been with me ever since!
