Author has written 6 stories for How to Train Your Dragon.

Addict to FF.net and particularly the HTTYD fandom since 2011. I admit it freely; there are worse faults. I love the themes in this movie, and its score is just wonderful.

Currently working as a zoologist, based in Scotland. I'm trying to make more time for my outside-work interests: photography, music, and yeah, writing as well.

I write original short stories too!

My Deviantart pages, with my stories and photography, are here.

Honest, constructive criticism is always welcome - it helps me improve. So please, if you're minded to leave a comment, don't hold back.

Anhedral: a reference from aircraft design. I blame my engineer father: took me to far too many airshows as a child.

Persephone by sunflowerb reviews
She was meant to be the price for peace; her life in exchange for the Dragon Master's mercy. Her captor wasn't supposed to be a ghost from her past, and she wasn't supposed to become his ally...or his lover. And when news spreads of a blonde-haired girl at the Dragon Master's side, there will be repercussions for dragons and Vikings alike. AU. hiccstrid. multichap

In their time, political marriages are a fact of life. Elsa's heart is thawed and expanding; Hiccup's is broken and receding. Theirs is a shared life of dragons, talking snowmen, parchment, ink, flames, ice, steel, and blood. Through all this, love may yet be found.

Hitchups by The Antic Repartee reviews
Hiccup didn't see the point in stopping Astrid as she ran off towards his village—towards his father—with his most desperately protected secret. He was leaving anyway. A coming-of-age tale. Deviates from movie. Borderline bromantic-comedy.

When Hiccup's latest design finally succeeds at shooting down a dragon, he believes that all of his problems have finally been solved.

Between a willing woman and a willing dragon, Eret gets a bit more than he bargained for when he comes to live on Berk. For the big man's own well-being, it's just as well he's not complaining. Post-HTTYD2. *Story contains explicit sexual content from the very start.*
