Author's Notes: I apologize for this year's comic being a day late. School has been pretty harsh this second half of October. Originally, I intended to do a long Dreadfall story with some spooky suspense and a new Flightmare character, but it was too long to finish for this year. So here's a short two-parter introducing an OC that I've had for a long time and finally have in-game.


Also, please excuse the exclamation points above people's heads. My Norbert Viking hasn't done all the quests yet.


The Wolf and the Howl: Terror Loose on Dreadfall


Part 1: Monster on the Loose

Once again, Berk was celebrating its annual Dreadfall celebration, Whisper and her Woolly Howl Winterwind had already picked out their costumes for this year (without a fight this time), but someone else they knew was still putting the finishing touches on his own.

Frostclaws: I just want to scare people!

Norbert: Well, costumes can help you scare people!

Frostclaws: Not if your hood doesn’t match the rest of your costume.

Norbert: …Seriously?

Frostclaws: I can’t let you go out un-color-coordinated.

Norbert: *muttering* You’re so weird sometimes.


A little while later…

Norbert: Where's Whisper? I said to meet over here…

Frostclaws: By the giant wolf head?

Norbert: Yes. I thought it’d be ironic.

Frostclaws: She’s going to be salty about that.

Norbert: Yeah, so?


Whisper, sometimes known as Whisper the Wolf, is an úlfheðnar, a type of warrior-shaman like a berserker, only one that takes on the spirit of a wolf, instead of bear, in its insane trance. Whisper doesn’t like her trance abilities because she’s always afraid she’ll hurt someone accidentally, and as a result has become rather bitter toward wolves, despite her warrior nickname. And Norbert likes to push her buttons.

Norbert: She’s never late. That’s my job. Wonder where she’s gone off to?

Frostclaws: You’re telling me! There’s feasting and celebrations to get to!

Norbert: Let’s ask Gobber if he’s seen her. Wherever she is, Winterwind is with her, and there aren’t many brown Woolly Howls flying around Berk.

Frostclaws: Ask Gobber? After what he did to my mouth last appointment? No thanks! Dentists are evil!

Norbert: Fine. I’ll ask him. *dismounts*

Gobber: No, not that giant monster. He’s gone a whole day without trouble for once.

Frostclaws: He’s right! I need to step up my game.

Gobber: I mean a little monster! That Terrible Terror that was just here a moment ago! She bit my toe, and while I was hopping around, she ran off with my candy for the kiddies! Small, green thing, got brown down its back.

Norbert: That sounds like most of the Terrors on Berk…

Part 2: Sparrow Hunting

Part 2: Sparrow Hunting


 photo HHEnd1_zpsfe2f592b.jpg

Sparrow is Whisper’s Terrible Terror. She was actually Whisper’s second dragon, even before Icevein, her Groncicle. She was meant to be a family dragon. But Sparrow was always the most ill-mannered dragon, and for this reason, Whisper's mother Ylva will make no claim to the creature. Sparrow refuses to follow her house training, chews up important papers, sets fire to the furniture, sings early in the morning and late at night keeping everyone awake, and she's notorious for eating everything in sight - your dinner, your chair, your books, your homework... In the end, Whisper ended up making her stay home most of the time so only their house and farm was privy to her destruction. It was rare that Sparrow got out to cause trouble among others.


Whisper and Norbert decided to search both Berk and the School. There was no telling where Sparrow got off to.

Whisper: Mom said she was driving her crazy and that I had to take her tonight. But she ran off within minutes! And she wouldn’t listen to me or Winterwind calling her back!

Winterwind: I took off after her, but she crawled into a hole where I couldn’t fit.

Whisper: Oh, she’s going to wreak havoc, I know it! Everyone’s going to hate me again!


Whisper had never been a popular person on Berk, due to a number of factors.

Thanks so much!


Oh, that particular one gave me so much trouble! I had to wait for both Gobber and Frostclaws to do what I wanted, and Frostclaws kept sitting down, forcing me to open my quest book multiple times to stand him up and just hoping they'd eventually sinc up.


Though ironically the one I had the hardest time with was actually Sparrow's "Happy Dreadfall" banner at the very end. I didn't know what I wanted exactly, but I wanted a picturesque Dreadfall banner with her as its center, and I had the hardest time getting Sparrow placed anywhere. Normally I hope on my dragon and then dismount to get them into the position I want - mostly works with a few trial and errors -but you can't do that with a Broad Wing Terror. Getting her where I wanted was downright frustrating in real life, almost as much as she's supposed to be in-universe. (Maybe that's why she ended up being absent most of the story due to the time crunch.) It's by sheer luck that I ever got her on that wheelbarrow. I feel I characterized her well. XD

That's how you do it?

I hadn't thought of that way of keeping my dragon awake for a picture. I usually mounted and dismounted, trying to reposition the dragon and myself after getting off. Thank you for mentioning this; it will be so much more convenient! I can also take this approach to capture Sparkflare roaring or just open-mouthed.

Glad I could help!

Oh, yes, it's a very useful trick! Life-saver for making comcis, really. There are actually three ways to stand up your dragon if their sitting or asleep without moving them - opening the quest book, playing with them, or feeding them. If you're hoping to get the "special" idle animation (such as the Rumblehorn stomping its feet or the Monstrous Nightmare roaring), go with the quest book, change an outfit piece (and then change it back if you want it the same), then close the book, and the dragon will do the special idle animation. But make sure you were set up beforehand and keep your finger over that printscreen button; they'll start their special idle animation right after you close that book.

Silly Terrors & Dreadfall fun

Not that I'm condoning Sparrow's misbehavior, but hooray for the Terrible Terror! I was eager to see your avatar with her tiny troublemaker, so I wish he had made an appearance earlier in the comic. I'm really happy for you.


This was one of the newly released dragons that I almost felt like I wanted to train. But since it wouldn't add much to my gaming experience besides its cuteness, I decided against it. I just can't help being careful not to gather too many dragons, and the baby Death Song was enough trouble to handle. (I don't have it yet officially, but I would have adopted it almost a year ago based on my assumed timeline.) Besides, the Terror still costs the full price of a rideable dragon.


I liked how this story was pretty much a great big reunion of characters who enjoy pulling pranks! And the sets of armour are really nothing but sturdy costumes, great for dressing up for Dreadfall but otherwise impractical. Oh, how did you take the wide picture of Sparrow with Cloudjumper? One of those fixed camera angles?

Hey, now I get that!

I noticed a few more things when I reread it. At first I had no clue what you meant by the wolf head, but it was the thing on the ground. I had always seen that as a dragon head; isn't it the same image as one of the options for a clan symbol?


The other point was Flostclaws question: "What's wrong with glowing blue eyes?" Right, because his are the same! What a clever detail.

Best Laid Plans of Dragons and Vikings

Yup, finally have Sparrow in the game! (As more the a decoration in the Dream Stable, anyway.) Don't worry, I'm sure Whisper and Sparrow will show up together in future comics more often, now that I've established Sparrow. The script was honestly written in a very rushed manner and still comes off as rather rushed to me. I had an extra chapter where Sneak, Snip, Snap & Trap feature again, and another where Whisper and Norbert actually interact with Sparrow a bit, Whisper in particular, but they were gratuitous to the main story, and I just didn't have the time.


Yes, I love the armor as costume sets! As you say, not much good for anything else, but during Dreadfall, very useful! Last year's comic with Whisper showing off her different costumes to Winterwind was basically me showing off all the cool stuff I had because I thought they made neat costumes eventually settling on some of them being props. This year I didn't do as much with that as I would have liked, but like I said, I didn't have time for it. I did get a jab in about all the different Night Fury outfit combos one can have, though. I planned to put Norbert in a Night Fury costume for that very reason even before I had decided to make Winterwind into Toothless.


I originally was going to end with Norbert in a Death Song or Screaming Death armor, but when I got through Loki's Maze and received the Flightmare skull, I felt I wanted to include it. And then I made the connection of the glowing blue eyes with Frostclaws' eyes - which I just had to make a crack about on Frostclaws' behalf - and yup, I knew I had to find a way for Norbert to end with it. XD


Oh, the wide shot with Sparrow and Cloudjumper? Nothing special there. The hard part was getting Sparrow to sit where I wanted her to; much easier with a dragon you can mount, I will say. But once she was set, I backed my Viking up a little so she wasn't between the two dragons, zoomed out the screen as far as it could go, and took the screenshot when Sparrow looked at Cloudjumper. It's really just a normal super zoomed out shot, but the main reason it's a wide shot is because I had to crop Whisper out of the picture. Her head is right below that bottom line. XD


Huh, I guess it is a dragon head. Ah, well.

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

It's funny how taking pictures of the ingame dragons can sometimes be like trying to put a real animal in the right pose.


Inner thoughts while trying to take pics (Slightly exaggerated for LOLs of course); "No don't fall asleep. Look that way. That way. No don't sit down. Here's an egg. Please stay standing and look over there. No DON'T GO TO SLEEP! I JUST WOKE YOU UP. Ok looking good looking good. (camera clicks) Darn I missed the shot. Have to do it again. (Sigh) Please stop trying to take a nap while I'm taking a picture of you. Darn I moved and now you think it's time to move too. (After a little while of putting the dragon back in the correct spot) There. Now I can- OH THAT'S THE MOMENT THERE!!! (Camera clicks) HAHA! Finally! Now I have to do that at least ten more times."
