Hello loyal readers,

Due to the increasingly time consuming task of writing Growing Up Haddock, my 9 story series, and my utter lack of enthusiasm or inspiration, I've decided to shelf this project. It's been a very wonderful year for writing and I've enjoyed it immensely. Each and every story in this collection was fun to write. If it were not for this series, I would never have started my best known series and I wouldn't have gotten the wonderful readers that I did. Thank you all for reading!

Any and all Hiccstrid fluff will be dedicated to my series or any other stories I'm writing. I have given a sort of sequel some consideration. Since this is in the universe my series is in, I can't write anything involving Valka or any of the aftermath of How to Train Your Dragon 2. I have had an idea or two for Hiccstrid sweetness in that universe so it may end up happening. But this one is done.

If you want to read more by me, definitely check out Growing Up Haddock! There is a lot of Hiccstrid fluff in it and I think it's better than most of these one-shots. You can find the series on my profile and I individually label each story in it so you know which is which and what order in which to read them. All angst fans will be satisfied for sure, as will fluff fans. It's the project closest to my heart and by far the most fun to write!

Thanks again and I hope to hear from you in the future!
