A punch and a kiss. That was the only way Astrid would show any affection to Hiccup, but deep inside, the boy wanted just a little bit more, a walk by the bay maybe or a day watching the sunset or even just a quiet evening together. There wasn't anything wrong with that, right? He just didn't want everything to always end with a punch and a simple kiss.
The sun was beginning to hide behind the trees and the cold of the night crept along the west. Everyone in the village was beg

Becoming a Hero the Hard Way:
Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III as a Christ Figure
(This is an essay I wrote for school in March 2011)
The Christ metaphor has been a poignant part of western literary tradition for millennia. By reinterpreting the Christ story, a piece of literature can bring a new relevance to the ancient story and reveal new ideas within its meaning and mechanics. This is not a practice limited to any one genre, and can be found places where you'd least expect it to be. A great example would be the children's book How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. By focusing on human dynamics in a fresh Christ metaphor, Cowell c

Hiccup was tired. It was evident in the way he laid heavily on Toothless' neck and barely paid attention to his directing of his companion's tail. Not that it really mattered, they were flying gently and Hiccup could navigate Toothless now in his sleep.
The brown haired boy sighed and traced little circles into Toothless' neck as he turned his head to lay his cheek against the warm scales. He looked out over the beautiful landscape and gave a little grin at the sparkling water and the green trees and the elegant looking rocks. The sky was also turning down for the night, and the sun

Hiccup grinned to himself as he ran back to his house after dragon training. He had successfully "defeated" a dragon without harming the beast and he was glad. He knew that if he actually hurt one of the dragons, he'd never be able to look Toothless in the face.
His smile widened at the thought of his black dragon and he hopped the stairs up to his house two at a time so he could get there faster. Today was an extremely hot day. Extremely hot. So today instead of going flying with Toothless, he had something different planned.
He opened the door to his house and went to the ce

I'm so bored! I've been alone all morning, and I want to play. I'm still young, I need at least one good work out every day, and usually Hiccup was here to occupy my attention when I feel the energy running through my veins.
One problem, he isn't here.
Hiccup, isn't here, when I need him, when his dragon needed him to play so he wouldn't destroy things.
That reminds me, I should probably stop bouncing on Hiccup's bed; it's starting to fall apart

It was official, Hiccup was stuck. Stuck in a tree. A really big, scary, tree.
It had started this early that evening. He and Toothless were having a fun time that day, playing together and causing mayhem to the nearby animals that lived in their little trench, as well as sort of splashing around in the water (Hiccup didn't want to get his clothes wet, so they basically had a lame splash fight at the edge of the lake and barely got any drops on each other).
Then they had simply sat around and Hiccup was enjoying the view of the wildlife and plants and scenery that encompassed there little area. Then he had noticed that the sun was ge

Birds are pretty. That's what I decided as I laid quietly in the morning sun and watched two pretty little birds fly around in the trees. I felt a pang of unhappiness as I realized that I used to be able to do that, but instead of trees, I flew around pillars or rocks and oceans and even the stars and the moon! (At least in my own mind). I huffed in unhappiness before I heard a rustle over on the other side of my lake (It is mine, for I live here now.) I was on edge for a second until I saw a head of brown pop out from the hole that was above rock like stair steps and I

It was a nice day, the sun was shining and the sky above was a beautiful blue with a few wisps of clouds that were left over from the storm that happened the other day. The ground still held evidence of the rain storm they had the other night and that was the cause of all of Hiccup's problems.
It was a few days since he found black dragon in the beautiful trench and he had just gotten enough trust from the dragon (thanks to the fish) to be down there with him, slowly getting to know each other. The Night Fury was still wary of him, but Hiccup liked the dragon and decided to n

"I don't like this game anymore!!" Hiccup cried as he ran around the lake that was in the middle of a beautifully green trench.
There was a rumble and Hiccup ducked as a black dragon jumped over his head, clearly trying to tackle him. Hiccup changed direction and ran the other direction, his little body getting extremely tired. Toothless whipped around and followed, prancing happily, clearly enjoying chasing the boy around.
'This is the last time I play tag with Toothless!' Hiccup thought, breaths puffing out of him faster than he was running. It has started out innocently enough, Hiccup had a day off from Dragon Training and of cours

Hiccup let out a puff of air and lifted a hand to wipe his forehead of the slight amount of sweat that had accumulated there. Toothless was fidgeting restlessly as Hiccup continued to make adjustments to the saddle and tail system. Hiccup chuckled and scratched Toothless' head comfortingly. "Don't worry, I'm almost done I was just thinking of switching the controls around so that I could control them with my fo-HIC!"

It was a peaceful night. Or, early morning. It was about five in the morning and the sun was still reluctant to peak past the ocean and no one was up yet, except for a few dragons that still enjoyed being out during the night. The stars sparkled happily above and all the Vikings of the village were taking advantage of the fact they didn't have to be up early in the morning anymore to fight dragons.
Well, most of them.

That was the first thing that came to his mind.
Not just most every day, but now more than ever.
Emerald eyes shot open, and the young boy of the Night Fury tribe shoved the wool blanket off of himself. He didn't question where he was. He only remebered breifly what happened.
When he was in his dragon form, his memory wasn't as sharp. Almost like multiple personalties in him.
He remembered the moment he was shot, though. It was the most pain he had ever felt in his life. As soon as the bolass hit him at surprising speed, he lost strength and was so frightened he revered back into his human form. One of the strings wrapped aroun

I struggled to get up, but the blood loss was making my legs rebellious and I could only make angry growling sounds as the female got close. She was grinning at me evilly, clearly believing had won. Frustration filled me as I caught a look of Hiccup's terrified face. I heard the Elder roar for the fight to stop, but neither Speedy Death siblings listened. I growled more at her as she got closer, still struggling to stand so I could fight back.
She lifted up her paw to strike me again when I heard a cry of "No!!!" and suddenly there was a blur in front of me. "Hiccup!" I roared to him. I heard Black Fury

I stumbled forward, barely avoiding falling flat on my face.
"I don't like this game!" I shouted, wincing a little at how close my voice was to a whine. Coming to a stop, I looked around, taking in my surroundings.
The forest was at peace today, the leaves and branches of the trees swayed gently in the breeze, at perfect harmony with the wind, whilst the birds in the trees twittered busily about their businesses. Other than the faint drip, drip of this morning's rain trickling from the trees, the forest was no different than any other day.
I sighed, "Come on!" I yelled, feeling a thrill of exhilaration at the sound of my voice

But what happened to everything else? He had been knocked out. He did not remember anything past the huge explosion of the dragon crashing down. One of the rocks had hit him squarely in the head and knocked him out cold. Shifting slightly, he got up and walked over to one of the windows and gently opened it up. He was shocked at what he saw, but he was even more shocked at what he didn't see. Shakily putting a hand up to his right eye, he discovered an eye patch.

The Speedy Deaths approached us cockily, making my blood boil at their arrogance. I could tell that one was a female and the other was male. The male was a few inches shorter than the female, and she was a few inches smaller than me. They both looked incredibly similar, their markings almost alike so I could make a guess that they were siblings. The female was much sleeker than I was and her head and body was long. The male

He quickly noted his situation. A vast, turbulent ocean below, fierce black clouds grumbled around him, and lightning shot through the air every few seconds. He'd seen better scenarios. What really puzzled him was that he was in his dragon form, which he didn't remember changing into.
Just then a sharp cry pierced his thoughts. Instant recognition made him swing round to face above him, and before him now fell six figures: Ayala, who had been the

He would make them believe. He could show them. Show them all how he wasn't "Hiccup the Useless". He would kill the dragon, and then show the body to his father or something like that. Hiccup was still nervous; he had never seennor killed a dragon before.

Mine and Hiccup's eyes met for a second and he gave me a wide smile that calmed my racing heart a little bit. I turned my attention back to the female and began to strategize. The elder looked at both of us, before letting out a long roar and jumping up into the air and landing on a cliff ledge on the mountain.
