Summary: Join Merida, Rapunzel, Hiccup and Jack Frost in their adventure to stay pure. Not everyone can stay on the path of good. But who will turn evil? Who will let the dark magic fill them? But until then, enjoy the close friendship of these unlikely four friends.
Everyone has their demons; their inner evil, their inner betrayal, their inner boogeyman. It just depends on the person and how they manage to control themselves.
Being a witch or wizard grants people with the power to do whatever they so choose, however it could be a difficult path to stay on, if you're trying to be good. Evil is always lingering. Always.
I got it. I finally got it and it's in me hands right now. The paper looked so old. And I couldn't open it. I just stared and stared. Being eleven wasn't the most exciting thing in the world. But gettin' the letter from Hogwarts, somethin' I've always wanted in me life, it's finally here.
Me mum stared at me with a proud smile and me father never looked happier. I was proud. I would make them proud.
"You're going to be a great witch, Merida." Me mother cooed and kissed the top of me head. I was glowing. Positively glowing with pride.
"Thanks mum." I peeled back the envelope opening and read me letter inviting me into the most prestigious wizardy school. I would make them proud. I would. "I'm going to make a lot of friends." I said proudly.
"That's a fantastic idea."
"I'm not so sure that this is a good idea, Rapunzel…" My whole world seemed to collapse.
"Your mother is right." My father intervened, my shoulders sagged even more.
"You've been taken from us once, who is to say you won't be taken again." My mother said softly and 3
stood up a bit straighter.
"Mother. I will not be kidnapped again. You can't let this opportunity slip me by. Please, mother, father. I need to learn. I need to be with kids like me. If you keep me here, you're no better than Gothel" I begged, clasping my hands together.
"…" They exchanged glances and sighed. "We'll talk about it. But don't get excited yet, Rapunzel." She said and I tried to hide my grin and put my hands behind my back and nodded and quickly slipped out of the room before squealing.
I wasn't completely sure if they would say yes, however I doubt they would say no. Comparing them to Mother Gothel probably wasn't the nicest thing to do but they just didn't understand! I couldn't be stuck home all the time. What was the purpose of being free if... I didn't get a chance to be free?
~Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III~
"Yer free at last!" Stoick shouted, extremely loudly I might add. I rubbed my ears and sighed. "I can't believe it!"
"Yeah, great." I unenthusiastically punched the air.
"You don't understand!" He continued to rant and rave about how fantastic it was that I was going to go to Hogwarts. He was more excited than I was.
To be completely honest, I wasn't that excited. You see, I kind of have a crush on this girl… She isn't a witch. So how can I make a move on her if I'm not around?
Yeah you're probably right. Me make a move? Hah. Maybe this will actually be better in the long run. At least no one will know me there, right? So no mockery?
I doubt it.
"… Ya know, yer mother was a witch too." That broke me out of my trance.
"Mom… Was a witch?" I suddenly felt a lot closer to her. A smile on my face and I sat down.
"Yup. A great one too." He nodded fondly. His mood suddenly changed, he looked kinda… sad which is odd for Stoick the Vast.
"What's wrong, dad?" I asked after sitting in several long seconds of silence.
"I can't believe I never told ya." He shook his head at himself. " 'M sorry, Hiccup. You know nothin' bout yer mum."
"No dad, it's fine. It's good. I'm good. All good here." I gestured myself and gave a thumbs up and he smiled.
"Of course yew are. Now, let's see what we need to get, and how exactly to get it because you're going."
"I'm not going." I spat with a scowl and sat on the couch with my arms crossed.
"You're going." North demanded. I scowled.
"You are!" I flinched at the last scream and rolled on the couch to face the opposite way.
"I'm not…" I muttered defiantly.
"Don't make me go over there. I will." North said blankly and I sighed and sat up on the couch and glared at him.
"Why the hell do I have to go?" I snapped and he sighed.
"Because Jack, you were chosen." I put up my hands and made a noise of exasperation.
"I don't WANT to be chosen. I WANT to stay here and not do anything." I argued and he shook his hand stood up.
"Come with me, Jack." He said softly.
"Is this going to be one of your lame stories about stupid stuff? Because I am not interested." I turned away indignantly and he walked over and grabbed me by my arm and dragged me away with him.
"Look, Jack. Do you see what that is?" He pointed up and I glowered.
"The moon. Yes. I've seen it once or twice before." I said with my words dripping with sarcasm. North paid no attention to it whatsoever.
"Yes! Exactly what it is! The moon, Jack. And there is a man on that moon that decides your fate, and he has chosen yours, Jack. And you're going to that school." North and his Russian accent made me want to punch myself. I was getting so annoyed.
"I really would rather not." I admitted, not phased once. North just glared and turned around on his heels.
"You're going. End of story." And the bastard walked away leaving me there spluttering nonsense.
Boarding the train was a lot more difficult than I thought. I found meself clingin onto me mum and dad. I didn't want to go anymore. I didn't want to leave. For that brief moment, I felt that I couldn't be happy without them.
I knew I could. Which is why I boarded the train.
Me luggage was quite heavy. I took my archery equipment with me. Hell, if anyone thought I'd depart with all of me bows n' arrows.
"I'm going to miss you, so much." Me mum kissed me on the cheek, I quickly rubbed it off and she laughed.
"Make lot's of friends and make sure to write a lot." I nodded at her and hugged them one last time and got on the train. I found the only empty compartment and put up my luggage. I wondered how long it would take for me to get someone else with me. Maybe we'd be friends. I need those. I just can't believe it. It seems like it was forever ago that I dreamed of this. And now, I just can't believe this is happening…
"I can't believe this is happening!" I was jumping for joy when my parents brought me to platform 9 ¾. I couldn't wipe off my smile. I felt bad for being so happy to leave, but I was so excited to learn and find out more about myself. Things I didn't know without magic. I wonder what I'd be good at, and what I'd be bad at.
Don't think like that! I was going to work way too hard to be bad at anything!
With a look of determination, I almost boarded the bus without saying goodbye to my parents. I quickly spun back around and they looked at me with a look of disapproval and I scrunched up my nose.
"Sorry…" I laughed and quickly threw myself into their arms and enjoyed feeling their embrace for the last time for a while.
"I love you Rapunzel." Without realizing it, I retorted back to my old phrases.
"I love you more." It almost hurt to hear it.
"I love you most." I flinched.
"Goodbye guys. I'll write a bunch and I love you so much!" I grabbed my bags, which were surprisingly heavy. I understand why my dad was carrying them now, and I quickly boarded the train with a grin on my face.
It isn't goodbye forever. Just goodbye for a while.
~Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III~
"Well, I guess this is goodbye for a while, huh?" I looked at my dad who for some strange reason was glowing with pride.
I clung onto my book "Hogwarts: A History" a bit tighter when my dad hugged me in hopes he wouldn't bend the hardcover with his large muscles.
"Oh, Hiccup, yer gonna make me so proud!" He seemed so sure of it too. It almost made me feel bad for thinking I would suck at the school, but hey. Can't all be winners, can we?
"Here's your stuff." He handed me a small luggage bag and I thanked him. He pet my hair and gave me one last look of approval before nodding and nudging the train.
"I'll miss you, dad." I said quietly. He nodded.
"I'll miss you too, son." He took a step back as if to give me room to grow up and be a man and walk onto the train. I felt more independent. I'm not entirely sure if I liked that or not. Even so, I smiled at him one last time and made my way to the train stairs and climbed in.
It was surprisingly busy and I bumped into someone.
"I don't want to go." I glowered as North easily pushed me through the platform and I held onto my cage for my long-term pet rabbit.
"You're going." He didn't seem to like to listen to me very much.
"You are an awful listener." I voiced with a sigh.
"So I've been told. Now here we are. Go." I wanted to smack him in the face.
"I just went on like a hundred THOUSAND times that I didn't want to go." I said flatly and he gave me another push.
The train's whistle rang loudly through the crowded area and North looked worried. He grabbed me by my sweater and pretty much threw me onto the train and the doors closed behind me.
If only I stalled him for a few more seconds…
I looked down at the ground and sighed when I realized someone bumped into me. I glared at them.
"I'm sorry…" He was shorter than me. Not by too much. But he was short. Auburn hair, green eyes, dorky. Not the type of people that I would go out of my way to be friends with.
"Just watch it, kay?" I snapped and slid passed him looking into compartments trying to find an empty one so I didn't have to deal with anyone.
Lucky me, the closest I could get was sitting next to a Yeti with red hair.
"This seat taken?" I didn't bother to wait for a response. I threw my things on top and sat down. The girl looked unimpressed. I really didn't care.
"I'm sorry to bother you, but do you mind if I sit here?" I looked up and saw a girl with blonde, braided hair. And oh my god did she have a lot of hair twisted in that braid.
"Go ahead." The girl across from me smiled fondly and blondie blushed and put her things next to the case that was labeled 'M.D'. Blondie's said 'R.C'.
"My name is Rapunzel." She held out her hand to the red head.
"Merida." Then blondie looked my way and smiled.
"What's your name?" She asked politely.
"Doesn't matter." I said flatly and stared out of the window. Rapunzel seemed a bit crestfallen.
"…" I looked up at her and she seemed rather let down. "…Jack Frost."
She gave me a shy smile and extended her arm.
"Nice to meet you, Jack." Her voice reminded me of someone…
I shook her hand and she sat down and pulled out a sketch book. I also noticed she had a green frog on her shoulder.
"Um… Hi?" I looked up, it was that kid from before. His cheeks were bright red, man he seems to be such a baby.
"Hello!" Rapunzel grinned at him fondly. "Would you like to sit with us?"
"Uh… Actually yeah, that would be great." He smiled nervously and slowly walked into the compartment like we were going to eat him. His luggage made me laugh. 'H.H.H. III' What odd initials.
"Oh you draw too?" Rapunzel leaned over her seat excitedly as he pulled out a sketch pad and sat down next to me. Of course.
"Yeah… I do. Yup."
"That's wonderful! So do I! My name is Rapunzel!" She was way too eager.
"Hi… I'm Hiccup." I snorted, and to my defense, so did Merida.
"What a lovely name!" And the look on Rapunzel's face showed that she genuinely meant it. She sure is a weird one.
I could safely say that I had a certain dislike for everyone in the cabin. Hiccup was way too awkward, Merida kept glaring at me and Rapunzel was just way to hyper.
I saw that Merida and Rapunzel were bonding and Hiccup was flipping through his sketch book and he kept glancing up and sighing.
What was his problem?
I couldn't express my true happiness once the train finally stopped and we got out and we were lead up the stairs and all sorts of good stuff.
The great hall was huge. A lot bigger than I originally thought it would be.
I saw Rapunzel to my left holding her frog and hopping. She looked so excited. Merida had a big doofy smile on her face and she looked so amazed. Hiccup… Well he just looked intimidated.
The plus side to having Hiccup in the compartment was he basically gave a rundown on what happened at the school; Which I totally seemed completely uninterested but I was paying close attention.
"It's time…" Rapunzel said with a huge grin. Then they started listing off names.
Rapunzel was the first to go of the people I knew and she practically bounced up. I noticed that she didn't wear shoes either. Odd. I thought I was the only one…
"Ravenclaw!" She gave a bashful grin and giggled and hopped off of the chair and was happily embraced by the Ravenclaw house. That surprised me though. I honestly didn't expect Rapunzel to be placed in the smartest house. I guess that was kind of rude of me to assume she was dim.
Merida was the next to be called up and with a deep inhale, she walked up, broad shoulders and proudly sat on the seat. She had a reason to. She was placed in the bravest house. Gryffindor.
I was the next one up. I couldn't lie. I was shaking with anticipation. I didn't want to be here but this would decide where I would be going for the next few years. This determined my home.
Was I a Gryffindor? Brave, daring and chivalrous? Was I a Hufflepuff? Patient, loyal and unafraid of toil? Was I Ravenclaw? Where I would be the smartest of my kind, quick witted and ready to learn? Or would I be Slytherin? Known to be cunning and ambitious.
I looked at Hiccup for support and he gave me an awkward smile. I realized that no matter how annoying I thought he was, he was good people. So I'd try to be friends with him. I smiled back and shook his hand and shoved my way through the crowd where I noticed their signs of irritation.
I sat on the stool and let the Professor but that ratty old hat on my head and let my thoughts be swarmed by the speech of the hat.
"Hmmm… How confusing…It seems that you have the qualities to put you in any house with your bravery, wit and your loyal nature. But something is inside you… Something burning through all of the others. You want to be noticed. You crave attention. Is that a strong sense of ambition I see? Well I certainly can't ignore that…"
"SLYTHERIN!" At the loud howl of the hat I searched for the reactions of everyone I've met. Rapunzel just smiled at me and clapped politely. I glanced at Merida. As though she didn't like me before, she was sure to make the distaste for me even more apparent. Hiccup awkwardly smiled at me again. That seemed like enough.
I climbed off of the chair and strolled over to the Slytherin table. I hadn't even noticed my plain black Hogwarts tie was now proudly showing the Slytherin colors. I sat next to another new student. He was kind of creepy. Pale, black hair, black eyes. He looked like a nightmare. But he was the only student to smile at me like he was very happy to see me.
"Yo." I sported a smirk as I slid into the bench. "Jack Frost." I held out my hand and he stared at it for a minute before returning the gesture.
"Hello Jack. I'm Dusk Black." He smiled and I nodded at his name and glanced up waiting for Hiccup to be sorted.
~Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III~
Yeah. Yeah that's me shaking. After everyone else I was acquainted with was sorted I just kinda… You know, stood there awkwardly. Really nothing to do…
Okay. I admit it. I am terrified. What if I don't get sorted into Gryffindor? What is my dad going to say?
"Oh Hiccup, yer mum was braver than ya! Why do I always let meself be so disappointed in you when I know it's gonna happen?"
I'm really not looking forward to getting sorted. I am quite visibly trembling. But I shouldn't, right? Rapunzel didn't freak out, she just… skipped. And Merida really took it like a Viking. She just strode up there like she was the boss and sat down. And Jack, well he looked like he couldn't give a care in the world. Why am I so nervous?
"Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third." Oh man. That was my name, wasn't it? I mean who else's name could sound that ridiculous. I actually turned red from all of the chuckles. I put my head down and strode up to the stool, trying my best to present myself like a Viking. I believe I failed miserably but I honestly can't watch myself.I sat down on the stool and winced when the hat was put on my head. And then he started talking…
"Why so nervous, Hiccup? You're so afraid of pleasing everyone else you can't think of the one place that will really embrace you for who you are. You're kind, you put others before yourself and no matter what, you stay loyal to anyone who you meet. I know exactly where you belong…"
"HUFFLEPUFF!" My shoulders sagged.
"Thor hates me."
Awwww poor Hiccup :((
And whooo is this mysterious "Dusk Black"? ;) Let's see who you guys think he is!
Anyway, no, the story will NOT be written like this all of the time. I'm trying to get a feel for each character to figure out who's perspective it should be written in.
