Nope, that was the only vaguely white dragon I had at the time... There are clues at the ends of book one and two, though...

 

That's Tallique's wings btw.

Chapter Twelve - Land Ahoy!

They headed west. The whole of Berk's community flying just under cloud level, with dragons carrying boats full of sheep and Vikings. Astrid flew at the front, trying to get to grips with Toothless's tail mechanism. 
    'How in the world does Hiccup move this thing?!' She asked the air for the tenth time. 'He has a metal leg, for Thor's sake!'
    She tried moving it into the gliding position but instead they pitched to one side, ramming into Hookfang. The Nightmare lit himself and snapped at Toothless, earning a snarl from the Alpha. 
    'Alright, calm down everyone,' Astrid said, righting Toothless. He growled at her in annoyance. 'Sorry, my fault.' 
    They were all cranky from hours of flying, dragons and riders both sore and aching. Tiredness had set in an hour ago, though Grump had been taken by it minutes after leaving Berk. 
    A Night Terror screeched into place beside Toothless and Astrid, chattering frantically. 
    'I can't understand a word of what you're saying, Bolt,' Astrid told her. 
    The Terror screeched over to Stormfly, who was flying nearby, and dropped onto her back in human form.
 'Ican'tfindSquishyanywhereandthelastplaceIsawhimwasatBerkandIthinkhegotleftbehindandIneedtogobackbutI'mtootired-' she paused to take a gulp of air '-socanIrideStormflybackandlookforhimI'lltryandbebackquicklyok?'
    Astrid blinked, her mind trying to catch up with the muddled words. 'Um... Stormfly?'
    The Nadder rawked and turned around, diving under an oncoming Hotberple. 'Thank youuuuuuu!' Bolt yelled from the saddle, hanging on by her fingertips. 
    Astrid shook her head as her beloved dragon disappeared from sight. 'Why did I let her do that?'
    'I have no idea,' Fishlegs said. He had his dragon cards fanned out in one hand and a baby Gronckle in the other. 'Look! Land!' He shouted over the hatching's sneeze, pointing ahead with his card hand. 
    There was an island rising from the sea in the distance, sheer cliff sides stark against the water and sky. Even from this far way it looked big, twice the size of Berk at least. 
    'Land ahoy!' The twins yelled. 
    With renewed vigour they sped towards the island, children crowding at the bow of flying boats and dragons chirruping at the prospect of rest and food. 
    Astrid and Toothless landed first, after surveying the island and surrounding seas. It was good to be on the ground again, where you could stretch your legs without a risk of falling from a great height. 
    The dragons and Vikings landed around her, the magnificent scaled beasts panting from the long journey. The riders immediately started planning houses, placing branches to outline buildings, and a lot of the other people did the same.
    'Guys, what are you doing?' Astrid asked them. 
    'What does it look like?' Snotlout replied, a stick in one hand and a rock in the other. 'Building my palace. And Fishlegs is building a shack.'
    The blonde Viking sighed. 'We're not staying here, you know. This is just a stop-off before we continue on.'
    Everyone in the vicinity groaned. 
    'But this place is perfect,' Snotlout argued. 'It's defendable, there's loads of space to build my castle—'
    'I thought you said palace,' Fishlegs put in. 
    Snotlout glared at the Ingerman. 'And space away from Fishface here and those two muttonheads,' he pointed to the twins, who were fighting over a stick. 
    'He has a point,' Eret said. 'We should stay here for a while and let the dragons recharge.'
    Astrid looked at the dragons. Most of them had fallen asleep where they'd landed and the few who were still awake were groggy and drooping. She glanced at Toothless and saw his worried green eyes were half closed and his wings were resting on the ground where he sat. 
    'You're right,' she admitted. 'They need a break, we all do.'
    'Great!' Gobber said. 'Say hello to New Berk!' 
    'Until Bolt gets back!' Astrid shouted over the cheers, which only lessened slightly. 'Urgh.'
    Valka walked over to her and gently placed a slender hand on Astrid's shoulder. 'I should head back to make sure we weren't followed.'
    The Hofferson looked up into Hiccup's mother's green reptilian eyes. She and Bolt were the only two Dragonbloods who escaped Grimmel's clutches. 'Yes, good idea.' 
    Valka nodded and signalled to her Stormcutter, Cloudjumper. Together, the human now dragon, they leapt up into the sky and flew up into the clouds, vanishing into the white mistiness. 
    Astrid watched the clouds for a few long seconds, envisioning Hiccup flying down from them with all the other Dragonbloods. She wondered where he was now, picturing the stiff, blank look on his face when she last saw him. This new enemy had known the Chief was a Dragonblood, known the others were, too. Known they where they were and what to use to control them. 
    How were they going to fight this one?
    Astrid shook her head, wisps of fair hair drifting about her worried face. There was no point staring at the sky, no point worrying. She had to do something. 
    'Hey, Eret,' she caught his arm as he walked past, a basket under one arm. 'Where would Grimmel go now that he's caught the Dragonbloods?'
    Eret, son of Eret thunked the basket down, the lid shifting to the side so that a fish tail poked out. 'He would probably have watched from a safe distance then sailed back to Berk to see if anyone was left, and then he would find a base of some kind.'
    'And he can't have gone too far yet,' Astrid said. 'If we go back now we could catch him while at sea and launch a surprise attack.'
    'No,' Eret told her sternly. 'He will know that you'd want to go back, and will have a trap ready for you. He gets into the minds of his prey and predicts every move, turning it to his advantage. If any of us go back, there will be trouble.'
    Astrid paled, her blue eyes becoming wide. 'Valka went back to see if anyone had followed us. And Bolt flew back to look for Squishy... With Stormfly.'

***

'Ahh! Land ahoy!' Bolt said to Stormfly after hours of flying. Berk was up ahead, green in the afternoon sunlight. Quietly they descended and flew around the edge of the island until they came to the forest, the shade of the trees welcoming after ages in the sun. 
    Bolt left the weary Nadder by a stream and headed to the empty, ghostly village. The quietness was disturbing, all the usual hustle of crowds gone with the people, there was not even a Terror left to make a sound. 
    'Bolt!' a voice hissed.
    Ok, scratch that, there was someone to left make a sound. 
    She turned around and saw Flitt beckoning to her from behind a house, putting a finger to her lips as a gesture for silence. She crept after the white haired girl but stopped dead when she saw a Deathgripper only a couple of feet away. 
    'Flitt, there's—'
    'I know,' the Ingerman whispered. She silently pointed off the edge of the cliff she was by and down to the docks. There, Grimmel was ordering the Dragonbloods into the hold of his ship, their bodies stiff as they clambered down the ladder. Hiccup was last to enter, his form changing painfully slowly as he was made to Shift from dragon to hybrid. 
    Grimmel called his Deathgrippers down and looked around worriedly, his pale eyes sweeping the coastline quickly. 
    Bolt and Flitt ducked down, looking back at the Deathgripper as another whistle pierced the air. It shook its head and snorted, its sharp tusks retracting a little way into its jaw. Flitt placed her pale hand on its head when its pupils slitted, yellow irises bright. 
    'Hey, come on, Nightreaper,' she told the dragon. 'You didn't brake free from him for nothing.'
    Grimmel whistled again, urgency in the tone. Nightreaper's jaws opened and acid leaked between his teeth, splashing to the ground in smoking puddles. 
    'He's going,' Bolt hissed, peering over the edge of the cliff. 
    As the ship tacked out into the ocean, with one less dragon pulling it, the Deathgripper relaxed and his eyes returned to normal. Flitt stepped back and watched the ship sail northwest, three Deathgrippers pulling it and two following. 
    'Ok... Northwest...' Flitt muttered. 'Where did everyone go?'
    Bolt stood up, brushing dirt from her knees. 'We were flying west until I realised Squishy wasn't there. Have you seen him?' She asked hopefully. 
    The white haired girl pointed to the Great Hall. 'Up there somewhere, I think.'
    'Thanks!' Bolt Shifted to a Night Terror and bolted up to the Hall, searching out the Hobgobbler with her brown eyes. She spotted him near the doors, staring at something on the ground. 
    'Squish?'
    The small dragon looked up at the sound of her voice, yellow eyes questioning. 
    'What's that?' Bolt landed and bent over the object that Squishy had been staring at, and was now being stared at by two sets of eyes. 
    'One of the darts Grimmel used,' Squishy said. 
    Bolt turned the dart over with a paw. The green liquid sloshed in the small glass vial, a hint of purple swirling within it. 
    'Deathgripper venom,' Flitt said from behind them, making both of them jump. She was in Flightmare form, her white scales shining and green eyes bright with concern. 'I saw him milking the venom from tails earlier.'
    'What does it do?'
    'It fogs your mind and makes your body uncooperative,'
she replied quietly, remembering what it was like. 'It's as if you are just a puppet at the puppeteer's hands, watching as you are forced to do things you would never have done before.'
    The Night Terror spun the dart around so it was just a blurry circle. 
    'And I wouldn't touch that because it only takes a little to take—'
    The spinning dart hit a pebble and pinged back, hitting Bolt's foreleg. The Terror yelped and pulled the miniature arrow out with her teeth, specks of dark blood flecking the stone beneath them. 
    '—Effect...'
    Bolt gulped. 'Erm...' Her pupils retracted and dilated, already the venom was taking hold. 'What's going to happen now?'
    'First, your mind will become foggy. Next, your pupils will go slitted,' Flitt said as those two things happened. 'Now, you will go stiff and be unable to move on your own.'
    Just as she said that, the small dragon stiffened and her eyes became blank, her gaze staring straight ahead. 
    Squishy poked her with a wing and got no response. 'Now what do we do with her?'
    'Um,'
the Flightmare tried to whistle, failed, and tried again as a human. Bolt didn't do a thing but the green Deathgripper, Nightreaper, came galloping over. 
    'Hey, boy,' she scratched the dragon on his chin. 'Up for giving us a lift?'
    Nightreaper crouched down and Flitt climbed onto his back, with Squishy fluttering up to ride behind her. 'Bolt, come,' she called. 
    The midnight scaled Terror flapped into the air, following the Deathgripper as it launched off of the cliff. 
    'Westward we go!' Flitt yelled, glancing back to check if Bolt was following. 
    The four of them flew up into the clouds, being joined by Stormfly a little way from the island. For maybe the last time they left Berk, their home, now empty of all but memories and deserted buildings.
    And a statue of the fallen Chief, Stoick the Vast.

Hooky you and Squishy are most entertaining. Excellent job Flitt! That was fun to read. Also since you just watched the episode and I'm too lazy to go back and see it via netflix, can you tell me if the dragon sculpture thing they found the dragon eye lense in, was in the shape of a dramillion? Thought for sure it was because when I saw the episode I didn't recognize what dragon it was supposed to be.

 

Also knew about Grimmel xD
