Author has written 48 stories for How to Train Your Dragon, My Little Pony, Frozen, and Corpse Bride.

Hi, I'm Cke1st. That's pronounced "See kee first," as in "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33). I came up with it while thinking of ideas for a custom license plate. You can Google "Cke1st" and find my personal web site, which is full of stuff that I've dreamed up or written.

I am a Christian, model railroader (N and HO scales), sci-fi fan, amateur naval historian, guitarist, bassist, writer of song parodies, one of the ten best submarine songwriters in the country, computer geek, wargamer, game designer, moderator of the Pirates page on www.pojo.com, Nerf-gun geek, and NASCAR fan (go #24!) (and #99, too).

My top 5 movies are How to Train Your Dragon 1, The Ten Commandments (old), The Sound of Music (old), Fiddler on the Roof, and The Princess Bride. I also like Frozen, Cars, The Incredibles, Corpse Bride, HTTYD2, Star Trek (TOS and TNG), Kelly's Heroes, Star Wars (episodes 4-6), Monty Python, and old Looney Toons.

The three best things are to point someone to Jesus, to teach someone something they didn't know, and to make someone laugh.
The three worst things are to twist the plain meaning of Scripture, to bully someone weaker than yourself, and to bake brownies with nuts in them.

I love the Bible, babies, dogs, anything to do with trains, most kinds of music (especially Christian rock, classical, bluegrass if they play it fast, and Andean folk music), puns, ironic humor, the sound of a Marshall amp cranked up to 11, cheeseburgers and fries, pretzels, fried chicken, the Civilization series of computer games, Tanki Online, the smell of a bakery, and stories with happy endings.

I don't like slash, lemons, bullies, vandals, people who threaten to kill me if I disagree that theirs is a religion of peace, guitars that don't stay in tune, sound techs whose solution to every problem is "Turn the bass down!", liver, green vegetables (and most of the ones that aren't green), people who think their health problems are interesting to talk about, almost all politicians, Microsoft, televangelists who tell lies in the name of God, and people who willingly take more than they give.

Why is "How to Train Your Dragon" so awesome? One reason is that it contains so many plot threads, all perfectly interwoven with each other. Consider these common plot lines we know and love:
- A boy comes of age.
- A misfit finds his place in his community.
- A boy and his dad work out their bad relationship with each other.
- A boy and his dog (but in this case, the "dog" flies and breathes fire).
- Two feuding communities make peace with each other (people and dragons).
- A motley gang of friends come together to save the day.
- Action and adventure.
- Love story.
- Dragons are awesome. Riding dragons is double-awesome.
- did I miss any?

To you, the readers, I promise you this:
- I will not start a story and leave it unfinished.
- I will not subject you to any bad language or sexual content, even in stories with adult themes. Any violence will be low-key.
- If you ask a reasonable question in a review or PM, I will send you an intelligent answer.
- I will not get upset if you catch me in a mistake. More than likely, I'll fix it and thank you for finding it.
- I will not threaten to withhold future chapters if I don't get reviews. I write for the love of writing; your feedback is just the frosting on the cake.

I ask this in return:
- Enjoy the stories! I hope you have as much fun reading them as I had writing them.
- If you like writing reviews, I love reading them, especially if you tell me specifically what you like (or don't like).
- If you are a guest reviewer, please don't ask questions in your reviews. No one can send PM's to guests on this site, so I can't answer your questions, and that frustrates the dickens out of me.
- Please don't ask me to update soon. I usually update three times a week once I start posting a story, which is far above the average for authors on this site. I'm flattered that you like my stuff and want more, but if three updates a week isn't enough for you, you'll never be satisfied.

HTTYD stories I want to read:
- anything from the dragons' point of view
- a good Hiccstrid story, especially one involving their courtship or marriage
- stories that expand on Hiccup's relationship with Toothless

Stories I won't read:
- anything with multiple spelling and grammar mistakes. Reading for pleasure shouldn't be painful.
- anything where the summary says "I stink at writing summaries, just read it." If you can't write a two-sentence summary, what does that tell me about your skills as a writer?
- anything about a mysterious girl (or boy) falling from the sky or getting found in the forest. Self-insertion isn't necessarily a bad thing, but can you find a more original way to make an entrance?

Thank you, Zach T., for the hand-drawn picture of Toothless that I'm using as my avatar. You're more awesome than you think, dude.

My favorite characters are Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, Captain James T. Kirk, Elsa (from "Frozen"), Emily (from "Corpse Bride"), Toothless, Bugs Bunny, R2-D2, Lightning McQueen, Bilbo Baggins, and Willie & Joe, the soldiers from Bill Mauldin's war cartoons.

The most interesting villains are Darth Vader, Captain Hook, and Smaug.

If I had three wishes, I would wish (1) that I could fly, (2) that I could talk as well as I write, and (3) that there was no such thing as Alzheimer's syndrome.

My guilty confessions:
- I actually liked geometry in school.
- I have watched and enjoyed some of the most awful cartoons ever made, including "Super President" and "Rocket Robin Hood."
- I really wonder whether the Song of Solomon should be in the Bible.
- My ears can't tell the difference between a $500 guitar and a $5,000 guitar.

I look at things like maple trees in the fall, or tropical fish, or sunsets, and I realize how much God loves us. He didn't have to make those things so beautiful, and they would work just as well if they were more plain; He made them that way entirely for our enjoyment.

Q: How many sopranos does it take to change a light bulb?
A: One. She holds the bulb and the world revolves around her.

Q: How many altos does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Two. One to change the bulb and one to ask, "Isn't that a little high for you, dear?"

Q: How many tenors does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Four. One to change the bulb and three to gripe about how they could have done it if they had the high notes.

Q: How many basses does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None. They're so macho, they'd rather sit in the dark.

Some facts about the stories I've published so far (as of Jan 28, 2015):

The first story I wrote: Snart's Saga
The first story I published: The Change
My most recent story: Snotlout's Bride

My longest story: Lightning and Death Itself (over 227,000 words)
My shortest story: Romantic Flights of Fancy (434 words)

My most popular story: Lightning and Death Itself (over 400,000 hits)
My most popular one-shot story: Calling the Bluff (over 3600 hits)
My least popular story: The Dragons of Heaven (264 hits)

My three most-reviewed stories: Lightning and Death Itself, Hiccup's Bride, Dimmadreki
My three most-favorited and most-followed stories: Lightning and Death Itself, Did Anybody See That?, Hiccup's Bride

My favorite story: Man in the Middle
My favorite story concept: Protection
My best-written story: Hiccup's Bride

My only crossover: How to Train Your Pony (HTTYD and MLP:FIM)
My only non-HTTYD fics: "Frozen Together" and "Thawing Together" (both from "Frozen") and "For the Love of Two" (from "Corpse Bride")

My best surprise: that "Hiccup's Bride" was so popular. I never imagined that a story that pairs Hiccup with an OC would draw over 170,000 hits and become my #2 story.

My worst surprise: that "A Nadder's Mystery" was such a flop. I tried to make it as good as any of my other stories, but I've written one-shots that have drawn almost as much interest as this one's 10 chapters.


Why do I write fan fiction?

I’ve written over 40 stories on fanfiction dot net, almost all of which are from the “How to Train Your Dragon” fandom, with a couple of “Frozen” fics and one HTTYD/MLP crossover as well. I’m writing this, not because I think millions of people want to know my thought processes, but to encourage anyone out there who is thinking about writing his/her first story, but is holding back for some reason.

Like many authors, I started with a shameless self-insertion, because I wanted to vicariously experience what it’s like to train and ride a dragon in Berk. My very first story, “Snart’s Saga,” was based on a classic example of the Marty Stu. It started as an extended daydream, and I started writing it down to appease my own ego. But by the time I’d written 12 chapters, I realized that, even though the main character would turn most people off, my story line might intrigue a few of them. So I rewrote the main character, removing his unrealistic awesomeness and making him more believable (and changing his name so it didn’t sound like mine). I was right; people liked the story, and some of them even like the new and improved character. So I kept on writing it, and I’m still writing it (100 chapters so far).

A second reason to write fanfics is to expand the canon and explore aspects of the story that the movies left unexplained. I started by guessing at the thoughts of the dragons, which led to two early stories, “The Change” (which I actually posted before “Snart”) and “The Killer.” I’ve cranked out many stories of that kind, which are fully compatible with the canon, but which give a dragon fan a better understanding of what’s going on in the minds of his/her favorite characters.

A similar kind of story tries to guess at future events. I like those, especially the ones that speculate about Hiccup and Astrid’s relationship, and they can be a lot of fun. Just be careful to keep your characters in-character.

Then I started asking, “What if?” That’s a dangerous question for an author to ask, because you usually can’t give a short answer. Make a change, even a small change, in what actually happened in the movie, and you’ll find that all kinds of things will also change as a result. This kind of story tends to rewrite the entire movie, from the moment you make a change until the end (which might turn out to be quite different from the movie ending). My first real “what if” story was "I Won This Thing;" I followed it with “Did Anybody See That?” which is my 3rd most popular story and is getting close to the 100,000-hit mark. I’ve done a few others as well, like “Heather Together” and “Frozen Together.” This kind of story is probably my favorite kind to write. One word of warning: if you’re thinking of changing the movie’s time line, then before you write one word of story, you’d better think up a very plausible reason why your change could have happened, or the fandom won’t like it.

A similar motive for writing fanfics is to fix something that you think is broken. If there’s some aspect of the movie that you think was handled wrong, there may be a temptation to see if you could do it better. I wrote “Bewilderment” because I don’t want the Snowy Bewilderbeast to be dead at the end of the second movie. That movie gave me enough clues to concoct a reasonable explanation for why my theory could be right, so it’s not a total fabrication. "Telling Them Apart" got written for very similar reasons.

Yet another motive, and count your blessings if you encounter this one, is when a bunch of readers ask you to write a sequel to something you’ve already written. You may think the book is closed on that story, but at least give the idea some thought. Your words have touched people and made them want more, and that’s the supreme accolade for a fanfic writer. Well, almost; the supreme accolade would be if Dreamworks or Disney called you and asked you to write scripts for them. But the supreme accolade you can realistically expect to receive is your readers shouting, “Encore!” It’s good to make them happy if you can. If you can't manage a sequel, then try an epilog, or maybe an alternate ending.

A related concept is the challenge – a reader sends you an idea for a fanfic that he/she would like you to write. That idea might be your style, or it might not. If it isn’t, don’t force it or you’ll wind up with an inferior story. Thank the reader politely for his/her interest, but explain that this isn’t a story you can wrap your head around at this time. If you CAN use it, be sure to give the reader a credit in an author’s note. To date, I’ve written exactly one story in response to a challenge: “Dimmadreki.” I’m very choosy about the stories I write; most readers’ ideas just don’t tickle my fancy. It’s probably because of my peculiar brain, dear.

Then there’s what might be the most questionable motive for writing a fanfic: you see someone else’s fanfic, and think you could tell a better story based on their concept. I confess, I’ve done a few of those. In fact, my most popular story, “Lightning and Death Itself,” is based on one of the oldest and moldiest concepts in the fandom, the Hiccup-to-dragon transformation. If done well, this kind of fic can be as good a story as any other; if done poorly, everyone will recognize it for the rip-off that it is. Lots of people do this, so I know I’m not the only one. When you see multiple stories popping up all over the place about (for example) dare wars, or the characters watching themselves in the movie, you know the idea didn’t randomly pop into all those authors’ heads at once. In my own opinion, it’s best not to jump on a bandwagon like that unless you’re sure you’ve got something original to say on the subject.

Finally, there’s the story idea that won’t leave you alone until you write it, even though you think it won’t be very popular. Those aren’t common. I’ve had only one; that was “Hiccup’s Bride,” and it has become my #2 story, to my complete astonishment. It's based on a concept that a huge chunk of the fandom will reject outright, pairing Hiccup with an OC instead of Astrid. “No one would want to read this!” I kept telling myself. But the idea literally gave me no peace until I sat down and wrote it. I gave it my best shot, a lot of people like it, and it might be the story that shows my writing abilities in their best light.

Incidentally, I’ve found a secondary reason for writing any particular story that occurs to me: sometimes reality stinks, and it’s nice to be able to create my own story where the ending is just as happy as I want it to be. Call it escapism if you want; I don’t mind. Everybody needs an escape now and then. Some escape with drugs or alcohol or gambling or sex; I escape to a world of familiar characters that I create with my own fingers on a keyboard. It’s a lot less expensive than the other escapes, it doesn’t break any laws, it hurts no one, I never get a hangover or an STD, and (perhaps best of all) I can share it with others when it’s done.

The bottom line, for every story I’ve written, is that two things have to be there before I even start. It has to be a story I’d want to read, and it has to be an idea I believe in. I could have written a dozen stories in response to reader suggestions and challenges, but they all would have wound up being low-quality and not very interesting. That’s no criticism of the ideas. It just means I can’t write well if I don’t feel strongly about the story. I guess I’ve become a compulsive writer, but I don’t write just anything. I want to leave a legacy of good stuff on this site, so if I ever meet another fanfic fan in real life, they’ll be glad and not dismayed to find out who I am.

Snart's Saga reviews
When a lonely young Norse farmer inadvertently trains an injured dragon, the world turns upside down for him and everyone around him. OC's.

The main battle in the second movie might have turned out very differently if Drago had made one small, understandable mistake.

There is evidence to suggest that the Snowy Bewilderbeast isn't really dead. I don't want him to be dead; I like that dragon!

An important mission for the dragon-riders gets complicated when they are suddenly able to hear their dragons' thoughts, and vice-versa. The word "chaos" doesn't begin to describe what happens next.

What would it take to realistically get Hiccup away from Astrid and into someone else's arms?
