|Reviews for Irritation, Hatred, and Something Else|

Never thought that a story who's main focus is on Fish and Ruff would grab my attention this much, but after reading this frustratingly crazy yet wonderful ride, I must say it was worth taking another look at the older archives of this fandom. I'm pretty sure I've scoured every nook and cranny for stories to read, but for some reason I've never come across this beautifully written story of yours. Admittedly it did help that I changed the filters to all "Complete"; goodness knows I hate it when I encounter amazing stories that are unfortunately unfinished or marked "on hiatus".
Anyways, I did mention that this story was really crazy yah? Yep - I expected nothing less from Fish and Ruffs marriage, as I already knew from the start that these two will have to sort their personal issues and feelings out before finally coming around and finding love and happiness in each other. Of course, this doesn't mean I didn't not pull a few hairs out or groan in frustration as I read through this story. By everything that is holy, the way you wrote their conflicts and whatnot was driving me insane.
Speaking of driving me insane, I commend you for that. The whole plot, it was nothing short of beautiful m8. Really well-written and well paced. Not to mention, your portrayal of Fishlegs and Rufffnut, and all the other characters (well, except maybe for Astrid in her lovesick mode), was right on spot. You truly captured the essence of a Ruffnut, in all her insane glory, about to be married to Fishlegs - awkward, sensitive, but smart and caring Fishlegs.
Speaking of which, the ending of this story couldn't have been more satisfying m8. Not only do Ruff and Fish finally sort things out and can actually work together from now on, Astrid and Hiccup also have their taste of the challenges of marriage. (I think I can already guess Hiccup's sudden expulsion from the house. LOL) Well, I'm not really sure about Hiccup, but the "in-love" Astrid was starting to get on my nerves. There she is being all happy and excited while Ruff was silently suffering. Sounds a bit unfair to me. (Not hating on her btw. Just saying.)
So yeah. I ain't one for long messages of praise and whatnot, but all in all this was a wonderful story that I haven't had the pleasure of reading in a long time. Thanks so much for writing it m8. I know this review is a wee bit too late for you to read, but if you're still there, then I hope you'll believe me when I say that you are a smashing writer.
Cheers m8! Happy holidays, and Merry Christmas! :D

This was a spectacular story. I read it all in one go. I was up at two in the morning going "WHY?! WHY MUST IT END?!" Some parts of this were hysterically funny and some made me want to just give Ruffnut a huge hug (and get knocked out for my troubles...Ruff, how we love you and your violent tendencies...) This also got me hooked on Rufflegs or whatever the pairing name is...now Ruffnut is forbidden to be paired with anyone else in my heart. The world needs more arranged marraige fics...I have only seen one other completed one and it was a Hiccstrid...why does noone else love this idea as obsessively as I do?! But getting of the soap box, this was an amazing story. I loved the fight over Tantrum at the end...that girl is an evil genius. Keep up the creation of masterpieces (for that is what this is...) TTFN

M'kay. This may be a rant, but it shall be a loving rant.
This is beautiful and at first I wasn't sure, but the story just grabbed me and dragged me in. The initial angst and then the awkward, the way they unsteadily start to fall in love. By chapter eighteen there was so much fluff that I swear I was squealing like a little girl (no small feat on your part, mind you).
Then I read Jinx and... and... DAMN! It had been so happy and fluffy and then it ripped my heart to pieces. It was awful. It was beautiful. It hurt. I loved it.
Then there was the ending. Normally, I don't care for fics where the characters end up pregnant, but in this it was... Very nice. It was there, but it wasn't the whole focus. It was just a natural part of their lives at that point.
I did have an issue or two. From what I could find on the subject, while the viking couples were not necessarily given a choice, they were at least consulted before they were betrothed. My only other issue was how insensitively Astrid brought up Ruff's miscarriage. She's naturally blunt and harsh, but she just mentions it and then shoves it aside and that seems pretty unnecessary and cruel.
Now given that you have more reviews than Berk has snowflakes, I'm probably not saying anything new, but I feel it's worth saying; This story is amazing. Thank you for writing it. It's beautiful.

You should write a astrid/fishlegs story

All in all, a good story that was interesting up until the end, and you nicely did both your research and did not dodge many issues (and those you dodged you acknowledged), and everyone was in character from Fishleg's awkwardness and Ruffnut's axe craziness.
Only point I'd contend is the whole 'dragons hibernating' deal given that they were active during Gift of the Night Fury and the names of some dragons (IE, calling Meatlug 'Horrowcrow'), but honestly it's not that big of a deal and given the date it might of been prior to GOTNF. Also a few spelling errors here or there, but nothing that made me pause and go back to read it again.

Fishlegs, you have three chapters.
| LuMezenga chapter 26 . 7/15/2013
I have this horrible pain in my chest! I feel so much for Ruffnut right now... If Fishlegs doesn't realize he loves her SOON, I will run him through with a sword MYSELF.
| LuMezenga chapter 25 . 7/15/2013
It gave me goosebumps. I knew he wasn't ready! Gosh, I saw her crumble with my very eyes...
...you're WAY too good at this. It made my eyes moist.
This shouldn't happen while reading a romance Fanfiction, honest.
| LuMezenga chapter 24 . 7/15/2013
Fishlegs made a move? I no believe.
Heheh. I'm so glad they're working it out! Can't wait for Ruff to confess!
| LuMezenga chapter 23 . 7/15/2013
Fishlegs is as dense as boys can be... Ruffnut has to do all the hard work!
| LuMezenga chapter 22 . 7/15/2013
Hahah! This Tantrum kid is cooler than we give her credit for in the beginning...
| LuMezenga chapter 21 . 7/15/2013
Ruffnut is completely crazy! Fishlegs has it BAD, he just doesn't know.
And the awkward talk was really realistic.
