Is anyone down for making a movie 4 for THE HTTYD franchise? It will take lots of hard work and more hard work. Details tommorow. It's 8pm where I am.

I definintely have ideas for a Httyd 4, though from the perspective of my fan-fiction mystery series which I just posted the final chapter to my 9th book, The Mist in the Darkness.  I have already plotted out what I would do for essentially a Httyd 4, I am just waiting for my series to get to that point.  Where my series is now is about 5-6 months before Httyd 3.  My 10th book will be the final book before Httyd 3.  I already have what I want to do with the end of the movie and how it relates to my series.  Actually looking forward to that part.

But what I have for a Httyd 4 is probably like Book 14 or something.

Thank you very much. :D

 

I started in January of 2014 and have been writing roughly a chapter a week since then.

When I started, I averaged about 650 words per chapter.

Now, I average about 3,000 words if not that, then up to 4,000 words.

My final chapter of Book 9 was just under 9,000 words.  So, my chapter length has definitely gotten longer, but I am able to be more descriptive while still moving the chapter along.  Most times in a chapter, I just have a lot to say to move the story along.

Most of my early books' links are in my signature.  Any that aren't, I can easily get the links to them.

 

The titles to my books are as follows:
The Clue of the Missing Socks

The Mysterious Frozen Fire

Thoughts of Guilt

On the Edge of Mystery

The Secret Symbol

Mystery of Shadow Mountain

The Crimson Storm

Conquest for the Truth

The Mist in the Darkness

 

Book 10 will be about dragon racing and be a more classic mystery, like a robbery which goes too far and my characters have to solve the mystery before its too late.

I know its a bit generic, but all of my mysteries so far have been completely original.  I wanted to see if I can capture some the classic Sherlock Holmes detective or Hardy Boys detective cases and see what my characters will do.

But I also wanted to revisit Dragon Racing as I had in Thoughts of Guilt and Conquest for the Truth, but have Dragon Racing throughout the book.

HOLY COW! that's six years of writing the same series! :o

I would've lost interest in writing a series after two years but six, wow that's amazing.

I'm definitely gonna have to read this things, especially since it seems there's A LOT of effort put into them.

And it almost didn't happen.

I was going to write the first book for a 4-H project and then just see if people liked it here on the forums.  If I didn't get a comment on my chapters by chapter 10, I would stop posting and just finish the story and leave it at that.

 

I got a comment on chapter 7.

 

Then that inspired me to instead write for what I liked about it, not because I needed feedback.  I enjoy talking about my series and listening to suggestions and comments, but writing it because I love to do is what has kept me going.  I got my friends involved to use their OC characters from the game and use them in my stories, then they created new characters for me to do.  Instead of coming up new characters to the ones I did for my OC, I wanted to see if I could write a character and portray them as someone else knew them to be.  That challeneged my writing, which is another thing I tried to carry along with me.  The only reason I didn't feel I could write is because I didn't think it would be fun to write such a story.  I would get bored or something.  But with boredom that means you're not being challenged.  Then this took me to then incorperate the School of Dragons storyline in with mine and then answer the questions what would my characters be doing "off screen" in any of the TV show episodes.

 

Keeping myself challenged has been on thing to keep me going on writing, but then their is my stubborness of always asking, "What happened next?" in any movie, TV show, or video game I watch or play.  My mind starts to think of what did happen next, so then I brought this into my series.

 

9 books later, I am about to start writing my milestone 10th book of the series...  And I feel like I'm still just getting started.

 

Finding a purpose for your writing (or really anything you do) will keep you engaged in what you are doing and keep making want to come back for more.  You have to want to do the thing, or you will never do the thing.  If you got the wanting part down, then it just comes the time in just doing it.  Your dream for an idea won't ever see the light of day unless you bring it out of the darkness.

 

*From that last paragraph, can you tell that I'm a writer?  XD  Even posts on a forum can turn into a story for me.*

Well I'm happy that it did happen as I'm excited to start reading! ^w^

 

And that last paragraph is so true, now, I'm not that great of a writer. But when I was younger *12* I wrote a book and posted it. Now the grammar was horrible, and I mean horrible. And no one commented so I gave up on the book. But as of last year *now that I'm a bit older* I got back into writing, but this time I didn't care if people commented or not. But people began commenting and telling me they liked it, mostly because the grammar was actually understandable, but that mind set you said in the past paragraph is what pushes me to post my stuff despite what people think. :3

 

And once again I must say I'm excited to read your books, because as a new writer I enjoy reading more advanced writers work so I can learn from it. *A Random thought, how long do you think it would take me to read all of your books? XD*

Welcome to my crew, then!  (What I call my readers and what my character calls his friends.)

Any chapter you feel to comment on about something, a question, or just how you liked it, feel free to comment any time.  I love reading them.  If you ever have a suggestion I can do to get better at, add a character or a plotline, a mystery type, or anything, feel free to say them.  I hardly ever turn down a suggestion.  One suggestion I got from a reader during Book 2 I didn't add until Book 7.  I let the story dictate where it goes and let it grow on its own.  I never try to rush it.  But I eventually add nearly every suggestion I've ever gotten.  Even at Book 9, I'm still waiting on the story to get to a few suggestions I got a long time ago.  I'm going to add them, I just need to get to that point to do so.

 

If you want to beat the record, it was the first 7 books in the span of about 2 months (maybe 3, I'd have to check my pms) set by Lack Lunason.

 

If I counted it right, from Book 1 - 9 I have 367 chapters.  A chapter a day would take just over a year.  4 chapters a day would be 92 days.  5 chapters a day would be 74 days.  6 a day would be 62 days, so just over 2 months.  To read all 9 books in 2 months would definitely beat the record.

(The earlier books have quite short chapters compared to my later books... And I end nearly every chapter on a cliffhanger so that the reader "has" to start reading the next chapter to see what happened and before they know it, they've read the chapter.  So, depending on how much time you have to read, it could be a lot more than you think for an average a day.)

 

I can go digging back in my tracked threads to find my chapter link thread I had them all on because our signatures have a character limit, so I couldn't post new links to them.  If you need anything, you can pm me.

its me, officer realism of the fun police

hmm okay how to say this quickly and nicely.

 

Movies like HtTYD, any of them? Those are the things you dream of making, you dedicate your life to it. They're clearly not impossible but they're never the sort of thing you can look at hiring for on Forum Dot School Of Dragons Dot Com. The people who have already made them have tens of years of training and industry experience, with the small exception of interns who would have only a few years of training.

All those people need to be paid for their work, which is a LOT of money for productions of the scale and quality of HtTYD. Story writers, concept artists, designers, modellers, texture artists, riggers, animators, actors, editors; just to name a few of the fields within a film production which themselves break down into further jobs and each will have 5-20 people working in them.

So I'm not telling you to not try and make a new HtTYD movie; if anything I implore you to try, I massively encourage you to do it. Just be prepared to put in the actual work for it and to have the patience to do it.

Where ever this goes, you have at least one modeler and animator in me.

 

I 3D modeled one of my main character's from my fan-fiction and animated a short clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PNhqBlqSxY

What might be interesting if Dreamworks ever wants to do it, instead of making a Httyd 4 movie, make a video game on the level of Horizon Zero Dawn's open world of epic exploration, Assassin's Creed adventure and combat, and the "your choices matter" of Mass Effect.

SoD has so much potential.  But what we really need is a new Httyd game that is truly open world, has triple AAA title graphics, and has an original story which either coincides with the franchise's storyling *cough, cough* my whole fan-fiction series *cough, cough*... Excuse, me... XD  Or what happened after Httyd 4.

Because...
What about the Defenders and them needing a Eruptodon to protect their islands?

The maidens and their job in protecting baby Razorwhips and raising them for their mothers?

The Berserkers?

The Outcasts?

The remnants of the Dragon Hunters?

Are there other Warlords out there?

What about the other tribes that were represented at the one meeting Stoick saw Drago at for the first time?  What about those tribes?

 

Berk flew off into the sunset and lived happily ever after... But what happens when the biggest power of the whole archipelago just sudden vanishes?  Someone has to take notice and try to sieze the opportunity.  This would leave the Berserkers as the largest power in the Barbaric Archipelago.  They as well as the Outcasts, Defenders, and Wingmaidens are left to pick up the pieces which Berk left them with.

While the end of Httyd 3 is bitter sweet and a very nice conclusion to the franchise...  They were the major protectors of the archipelago.  Who's going to protect the rest of the people?  If Httyd is set towards the end of the Viking Age, there are people coming to invade eventually.

If there comes a new threat to the archipelago, will Hiccup and Berk sit idlily by and say, "We don't ride dragons any more.  We do so to protec them and us."  But what happens when evil doesn't care about what you did but wants to take everything for itself?

 

*In a nutshell, I just did the teaser for one of my later books in my series.  I have a more detailed plotline to type up later*
