Me: Hello my fellow readers and no I am not died just very busy with classes and still getting this bloody kidney stone situation done with but anyway I have decided to retype this story a bit as to fix any mistakes I have missed back than and change a few things and there but not so much…
Anyway onward to the rewrite
Summary: What if Hiccup left right after the choosing who would be killing a dragon and if Astrid didn't follow? Fate has something different for Hiccup this time…
Pairings: Hiccup x OC, Toothless x OC
I don't own 'How to Train your Dragon' only Dreamworks do. Enjoy!
Hiccup killing a dragon was something he dreamed of doing. To show that he was not useless and make his father proud of him for the first time but sadly that was not the case anymore.
He took down a dragon but not just any dragon, a Night Fury, the offspring of lighting and death itself. He had the chance to kill the rare dragon and bring glory to himself but he couldn't. He just could not do it.
He let it go and when he thought the dragon was about to take his life, it did the same.
Through time, Hiccup learned the dragon couldn't fly anymore because of the crash he caused so he built him a new tailfin. It took time to learn how to make it work but soon Hiccup started to enjoy flying with the Night Fury and learned the errors of his tribe for killing these so called beasts.
Hiccup noticed from 'Toothless' the name he gave to the Night Fury, other ways to take down a dragon without harming them and use them in his dragon training. At first it was useful for him to survive but when he started getting attention, he was thinking that it might have been a bad idea.
He wanted to stop and let Astrid take the glory by killing the prize dragon, but when his father heard about this and also gave him his umm… mother's breastplate helmet for protection at the ring…he just couldn't do it.
Now Hiccup is walking back to the cove with a bag of things and has one thing in his mind: to leave and never return.
He looked around and shouted "Toothless come on bud…we are going on a vacation…a long vacation."
He put down his bag and checked to make sure he didn't forget anything because he didn't want to risk having to go back to the village and find someone following him. He packed his things the moment when he had the chance to escape from the crowd and used the back door of his or Stoick's house.
When he finished, he looked around to find Toothless already next him and sniffing the bag.
Hiccup laughed "No buddy, there is no fish in there but we do need to leave and find ourselves an island…far from here."
Toothless looked at his human without question and looked as he was saying 'about time too.' Hiccup shook his head and grabbed his bag and hopped on Toothless. With no second thought both rider and dragon where on the air looking down where Berk was at.
Hiccup looked down at the village and that was once his home before his mother died but now it's not the same anymore. His father hardly looks like him while everyone looked at him with…the name he'd gotten was just sad…Hiccup the Useless was the famous one.
Hiccup lowered his head to where you couldn't see his face anymore and slowly tears begin to flow down from his cheeks. All the years of suffering he had to endure but he couldn't show it because his…the chief wouldn't be happy as always. Vikings were supposed to be tough at anything to injuries and to emotions.
But now he was leaving and he could finally let go of his suffering for the first time. Hiccup looked up with his sad eyes and turned away from Berk "…let's go Toothless."
Hiccup didn't know how long he was flying but it felt like forever. He snapped out of his dazed state when Toothless stopped flying.
Hiccup looked around and immediately noticed a dragon, but not just any dragon, for it was another Night Fury with a female rider.
Hiccup blinked a couple of times to see if he was seeing was real, but after some time he couldn't deny it "Umm…hi."
That's all Hiccup could think to say. The female looked at him a bit before relaxing after the greeting and gave a giggle. "So…is that how you greet a young lady?"
"Umm well not from the…sky or riding a dragon" Hiccup responded. "Fair enough…let's find a place to land and greet each other properly."
Hiccup nodded as both flow to a nearby island and landed. Hiccup noticed that the female had light brown hair that was held up and looked to have green eyes as well. She was wearing a simple blue tunic dress.
"Well then I guess I'll go first, the name's Anna Marianne, the daughter of Marianne Jones and Charles James, pleased to meet you" greeted Anna with a curtsy.
Hiccup didn't know what to say but didn't he hear those names before his mother died…wait Marianne and Charles…no it couldn't be! "Y-You're the princess!"
"Damn and I was hoping you wouldn't know but I couldn't just lie to you so yes, so tell me who are you?" wondered Anna.
"Umm well I'm Hiccup Horrendous, the chief's son, Stoick the Vast…or used to be, but please to meet you too princess" replied Hiccup. Anna blinked a couple of times "What do you mean used too?"
"Umm you might want to sit down it's a long story" said Hiccup as he sit down at a rock. Anna nodded and followed suit while their dragons were looking at each other.
Hiccup was finally telling someone of his past and troubles besides Gobber. What he had to endure and suffer from both his tribe and his umm… father. And then he told her how he met Toothless and how he slowly began to feel more welcome to him then about his tribe when he was helping Toothless to fly. Then the big contest to see who will kill a dragon in front of the tribe but he told her he couldn't do it.
"…why couldn't you?"
"I-I don't know…it would just feel so wrong."
"…was it the same reaction how you couldn't kill Toothless?"
"…well umm I-I don't know really…I saw myself in his eyes…the fear in him…I just could not go through that again."
Anna nodded her head "I understand you Hiccup." Hiccup was surprised to say at the least not even he can understand himself.
"You see when I first met my partner Jade, she was a young hatching at the time and I was a young girl. My family wanted to spent some time in the forest for a family fun but then came these wolfs…they were not happy at all. My Father and Mother were excellent on the bow and arrow but there were too many of them…I thought it was over but then there was a big black thing that zoomed past us and attacked the wolves and chased them off."
"We didn't know what they were but my Father knew they were dragons…my parents thanked them and we began to go home when one of the dragons walked towards us and looked at us like it was begging for something and then used its tail to wrap around something and lowered to the ground…it was a baby dragon. At first we didn't know what to think but after a while my Mother believed she knew what she wanted to us to do…she told them that we will take care of baby and not to worry and with that the dragons took off and we never saw them again."
When Anna finished her tale, Hiccup was shocked beyond belief. A family of Night Fury went and saved a family of royalties and then begged them to take care of their hatchling. "Wow…now that is something."
"I know right but I always wondered what happened to those elder Night Furies?"
Hiccup sighed heavily "I can't tell you anything really I thought that Toothless was the only Night Fury left."
"Really…I wonder what happened to his family" wondered Anna. "I don't know…wait if you are the princess then what are you doing out here in the first place" wondered Hiccup.
"Well you see my parents thought it was a good time for me to find a suitor to help me rule and have someone with me…but I looked at all of the princes, lords, dukes, etc and I still couldn't find one that has my taste in anything so I packed and left with Jade for a while so I can make a decision" explained Anna.
"That is something to look at…I'm glad I don't have to do that with my Father yet" replied Hiccup. That's when Anna got something in mind "Wait you said you were the chief's son, right?"
"And chief is like a lord in your tribe, right?"
"Well I guess but it's more like a leader then a lord…I think."
"But leaders are lords…so that's makes you like a prince."
Hiccup at first was clueless of what she was talking about but then it hit him. "W-Wait you want me to be-"
"Yes, it's perfect not only do I have someone to talk to that is not a snobby prince that only thinks for himself, but we can save the Night Fury from going extinct" explained Anna happily.
Hiccup blinked a couple of times and then turned around to see Toothless with Jade, cuddling together. He sighs heavily and slowly nodded "Alright…at least it gives me a new life away from Berk."
Anna frown "You know, you are a really good person Hiccup with knowledge that goes beyond normal which in my people think is a blessing, but the tribe you were at…they just ignored what could have been a new era for them."
Hiccup didn't know what to say to that but just smiled "Thank you."
"No problem, now let's go so you can meet your new life Hiccup" said Anna as she hopped onto her dragon. Hiccup nodded.
Hiccup and Anna were flying near Hel's gate when both Night Furies were acting weird and went inside the clouds. "What's going on? Hiccup, where are we go – HICCUP!" said Anna who was getting a bit nervous.
Hiccup look around and noticed a dragon no two wait…there was a lot of dragons surrounding them. Hiccup didn't like it at all and then looked at Anna and she didn't like it either.
"Toothless you got-" He was cut off by Toothless from a warning growl like he was telling him to be quiet.
Both riders didn't know what to do but followed the other dragons to the volcano. Hiccup gasped seeing all the dragons and he knew that this was the dragon's nest. The very thing the Vikings were looking for after the dragon's raids.
"What Stoick would do to see this place" murmured Hiccup. Both Night Furies flew around and found a good cliff to hide behind.
Both riders saw what the dragons were doing with the animals they collected and just dropped them into a deep hole. "Well now we know what they do with the animals they steal" stated Hiccup.
"But why are they just dropping them to that hole…it looks like a waste to do that" stated Anna.
Before Hiccup could answer, a Gronkle was flying over to the middle of the hole and dropped what seems to be a tiny fish. The dragon was about to leave when there was a sudden roar below and a massive mouth came out of nowhere and ate the dragon.
Both Hiccup and Anna were shocked from what they saw and couldn't move at all while both Night Furies were worried for their riders. Hiccup awoke out of his shock and whispered to Toothless "Bud let's get out of here…"
But it was not silent enough as the massive head turned to the cliff and narrowed its eyes when it spotted two Night Furies but more importantly, humans.
The massive dragon moved to the Night Furies and was ready to get them but luckily, Night Furies are known for their speed and got away with their human's safe with some other dragons that didn't want to face the fury of that thing.
Toothless and Jade went back to the same island where Hiccup and Anna introduced themselves to rest. Both riders were silent until Anna broke it.
"…that thing is the reason why the dragons have to raid villages or kingdoms" said Anna sadly. Hiccup didn't know what to think but did notice something in the eyes of that dragon.
"D-Did you by any chance notice how that dragon was glaring at Toothless and Jade?" Anna turned to Hiccup with a confused look "…N-No not really but what does it have to do with what we found out?"
"Think about it, why is there hardly any Night Furies anymore or how these two are the only ones that don't give food to that thing" stated Hiccup.
Anna thought for a moment while Hiccup went to Toothless. "Buddy…was that thing responsible for you being alone?"
Toothless didn't know what to say, but he slowly nodded his head. He didn't want to lose his human to that thing like his family did. His mother saved him by leaving him in a different island but never returned. She told him never to listen to the queen anymore and follow his own path which he did.
Hiccup slowly understood now "…that thing has power so it can control other dragons but the Night Furies don't follow the dragon at all."
"…so if that thing took out both Toothless and Jade's parents it would have no problems in the future so it would be queen forever" finished off Anna.
Anna understood Hiccup's thoughts. It would explain why the elder Night Furies wanted someone, anyone to look after their young so they would not be lost to that queen.
"…but what could we do…you saw how big that thing was." Hiccup looked at Anna with determine eyes "I know…but it's the only way to free the other dragons."
Anna never could have thought Hiccup could be so determined even though she only been with him for a few hours, but she doesn't want the other dragons to suffer anymore. "…ok so what do we do?"
"…I believe I have a plan but we need to make sure it is possible if not…we could end up dying along with it" explain Hiccup.
Anna nodded "I'm with you all the way." Hiccup nodded "Alright then, here's the plan…"
Me: well I hope this retype is a bit better than it was before…and I will have the other HTTYD stories updated soon the best I can.
