Hello everyone, my name is chipsandfish2. I was so inspired by fanfiction stories that I decided to create my own. So, yeah, this is the first chapter of my first fanfic novel.

I hope you all enjoy it.

Disclaimer: I don't own anything I write about.

Ch. 1: Leaving Berk

"Leaving, we're so leaving," Hiccup said with a frown on his face.

After all his successes in dragon training, Hiccup was chosen to kill the Monstrous Nightmare. While he would normally feel excited to have such an honor, to him, it just felt wrong. So, he decided the best course of action would be to leave with his best friend Toothless.

Speaking of the Night Fury, Toothless was just resting in the cove when he heard his rider/friend approaching. He immediately ran over to him, knocked him over, and started licking his face.

"AGH, Toothless, you know that doesn't wash out!" shouted Hiccup. "Anyway, we're leaving."

Toothless looked at Hiccup like he had grown two heads.

He then gave him a look which Hiccup knew meant, "Why are we leaving?"

"I was chosen to kill the Nightmare, bud. But, I can't go through with it. The only reason I passed was because of all the things I learned spending my time with you. If it weren't for you, I would most definitely have been dragon food long ago," explained Hiccup.

Toothless let out a low croon as a response. Hiccup then checked his bag to make sure he had everything he needed. He packed food for him and Toothless, water, his notebook, his sketches and blueprints, money, spare clothes, a blanket, a map of the archipelago, and his own books of dragons. After reading it that one stormy night, he decided to create a copy with loads of extra blank pages for any new dragons he discovered.

"Alright, looks like we've got everything," Hiccup told Toothless.

Then he realized something. "If I'm not going to kill the dragon, then someone else will. We have to do something."

"Alright bud, before we leave, whaddaya say we go free some dragons?"

Toothless looked at Hiccup, his curiosity peaked.

"Let's go bud," said Hiccup. And moments later, the duo were in the air.

A minute later, a certain blonde viking girl arrived in the cove only to find it deserted.

Later that night

"Alright Toothless, let's go free the other dragons," Hiccup whispered.

The two made their way to the arena under the cover of night, which is pretty easy if you're a Night Fury. Once the two were in, Hiccup started opening the cages while Toothless quietly called out to the other dragons.

"If you want to be free, just stay quiet and trust us."

Pretty soon, all the dragons were free. They consisted of: a Gronckle, a Deadly Nadder, a Hideous Zippleback, a Terrible Terror, and the same Monstrous Nightmare that Hiccup was chosen to kill.

Afterwards, Hiccup climbed back onto Toothless and he and all the other dragons flew out of the arena.

Hiccup then turned to the others. "Whelp, now that you're free, you can go wherever you want."

Suddenly, the Terrible Terror landed on Hiccup's lap and got cozy. Hiccup looked down in surprise and then looked at the other dragons. They were all looking at Hiccup and Toothless with smiles on their faces.

"Well bud, guess we're having company," Hiccup said to Toothless who growled with excitement.

"Then let's go everyone, away from Berk and towards our new lives."

And so, Hiccup and the dragons all flew into the beautiful sunset, excited and somewhat nervous for what the future holds.

To be continued…

And there's the first chapter, what do you guys think? I'll definitely be adding more dragons to Hiccup's team. Next chapter, Hiccup will arrive in Arendelle with the dragons.

See y'all next time! :)
