EDIT: Omg I totally forgot to mention something important. This fanfic was inspired (as you may notice in some parts) by a video in Youtube, a fanmade trailer for the "Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons" movie. It's really funny and I recommend you all go watch it here: /watch?v=T2K3zCXRBZg (write youtube dot com right before and you got it!)

Oh hi!

This is the first fanfic I'm publishing. I'm so excited about it! This is just a prologue, however. I have some chapters already written and ready, so keeping a good uploading pace shouldn't be a problem. The first chapter will be up soon!

Anyway, I wanted to make a note before the actual story begins. I used a translator for Merida's scottish accent, but I changed some words and expressions I thought maybe would be hard to understand for the readers, just to make it easier. Also, I'm not a native English speaker, so if you see any grammar mistakes feel free to point them out! Constructive criticism is appreciated, too.

Thank you for taking the time to read me! 3 Now, onto the prologue-ish thingy...

Some say our destiny is tied tae the land, as much a part of us as we ur of it. Others say fate is woven together like a cloth, sae that one's destiny intertwines wi' mony others…

"What?" a boy laughed. "No, no."

"Jack, shut up!"

"I thought you didn't believe in fate."

"Ah don't! Ah was jest beginnin' tae tell a story! PROLOGUE! Does 'at word rin' a bell tae ye!?"

"Well that's one crappy prologue you got there."

"Why ye wee…"

Seemed like a fight was heading on, but it fortunately was interrupted by another girl.

"Please stop fighting!"

"He started it!" the first girl accused.

"I don't care who started it, just stop! You're going to make a mess out of this!"

"Oh, Punz, you're no fun" the boy pouted.

"Merida, you can beat the crap out of him later" a different boy sighed. "People here are kind of expecting a story, you know."

"Reit!" the girl called Merida cleared her throat and shot a glare at Jack, who was making fun of her by putting on weird faces. "Noo, if Jack wood let me begin, Aam sure people haur wood like tae hear our story…"

"Why would they want to? It's not like it's an exciting, extraordinary and fun beyond belief adventure to hear…"

"Let her speak, Jack."

"Thenk ye, Rapunzel. Ah wooldnae want tae beat him up right haur. Thaur might be sensitife people aroond."

"I'm sure that people would enjoy it if you actually got onto the story…"

"Don't get me started on ye, Hiccup! If ye want tae tell it yerself, go ahead an' dae it!"

"I wasn't criticizing your ways, Mer, I just think people are getting tired of arguing and…"

"Well screw them! Ah will argue all Ah want!"

"Come on, Merida, can't even take a little criticism? My, my, what an awful story teller…"

"Jack!" the girl named Rapunzel drew out a frying pan and hit him with it.

"Ow! What's that for!?"

"It was for you to shut up! Merida doesn't need anyone to tick off her temper!"

"Well, if we're all going to keep arguing I'll simply head out and…"

"Nae! Yoo're stayin'!"


"Coz Ah want ye tae that's why!"

"Ah, lovebirds…"

"Jack, I'm warning you, you don't want me to hit a second time."

"Oh come on Punz! Don't tell me you're not having fu… No, no, get that thing away from me, I didn't say anything!"

"Merida, I don't see why we have to keep these people waiting…"

"SHUT UP HICCUP! If ye want tae, tell them yerself! Ah give up!"

"Great, now the fault is mine…?"

Ahem. Well, since they don't seem much in the mood for story telling anymore… I should tell you myself, because this is a tale worth to be told. This story is precisely about these four people we've just met, about how they overcame the obstacles, learned to trust on themselves and on each other, about the fates they wanted so badly to avoid and about the true evil they had to confront. They found love on the way, too. Also it is about dragons. And magic. And fun. And epicness. You people like those kinds of things yeah?

Well then, this is a story about how four Guardians rose… uh, sort of.
