War Torn Valka

“Alright, but you not explained why in this world you and Dad aren’t together or why he is the way he is. What’s up with that? I’ve never seen two people love each other more than you two. Even in in death he only loves you more.

Like he was more worried you murdered him again when Boden busted his foot before his 16th birthday party than anything else! I’m thinking what can hurt a man who is already dead but he was so scared of you! The three of us never seen Dad look the way he did! So I’m not understanding this world where the two of you are not together?”

“I’m sorry to say that the Stoick the Vast here has no love within him for if he did he wouldn’t have done what he did to me. A woman he loves so much in another world that he calls more beautiful than Lady Frigga and do anything for.”

“What did Dad do you?”

“Don’t judge him if you get back to your world, he’s not the man you know in this world he’s someone else. A man without a heart and soul. So don’t hate or hold this against the man who is your father if you return to your world,” she asked of her son first and he nodded but she allowed herself to be in the firelight at last

Then she lowered her hood slowly and very slowly she turned to face Hiccup and he recoiled in fright and nothing had scared him more then what he was looking at right now. Not that battle he’d witnessed or the horror stories he’d heard could trump what was the true nightmare of this horrible world where he was never born.

His mother’s face was horribly disfigured. Her beauty was gone and now she was as ugly as she was once beautiful. Her beautiful long auburn the hair his brother and him had inherit had burn obviously hacked off with a burning knife because you smell the burned tips and see it was a knife that had done it.

But her face was disfigured almost beyond recognition and her body was mangled and broken to the point he could see now why she moved the way she did.

“What HAPPENED?!” he screamed in disbelief as he touched his mother’s face as if his touch could magically remove the disfiguring burns, scars and gash all over his mother’s face.

Her kind lovely blue eyes still held tears and he was able to wipe those away and she held him close and she told him what had happened and reminded him again the Stoick that had done this wasn’t the same one who was his father.

She explained years ago shortly before his friends began training his mother had protested it to Stoick screaming that they shouldn’t send more children to the slaughterhouse to die.

That’s when he beat her up the first time. And then any time she opened her mouth to protest he beat her up worse than before. But she did all she could to protect those five children but failed and then one night during a training session a new dragon they’d captured by off chance a Stormcutter was forced into the arena for them to fight and kill it.

The children were only nine years old and it was too much for her to bear. She’d managed to knock out Gobber and get the dragon free and as the dragon was trying to escape the raving lunatics start of course being well raving lunatics and accidently set a house on fire unaware a mother had left her new baby sleeping there.

She’d been running trying to not get caught but saw the dragon to get in and then saw it was trying to rescue the baby. Amazed after seeing so many years of bloodshed that one creature would think of another she helped both the Stormcutter and the baby to safety.

But rather than thank her for her part in saving a child’s life she was condemned to die for her ‘traitorous actions’ she was dragged to the arena where Stoick was waiting for her.

The deal was if she beat Stoick she would be allowed to live and could leave War Torn if she failed to beat him she was to die. She tried to fight as it was her life on the line and it was the most hellish fight either had fought and she was already suffered so many beatings from Stoick so her body was already badly injured.

Still she managed to use her brains to get the upper hand and disarmed him but when everyone told her she had to kill him to be set free she couldn’t do it. Not after seeing compassion for the first time in her life and knowing a silver of it.

She told Stoick she was willing to spare his life if he would spare hers and just let her leave the island and let her live in exile. He told her they’d a deal and she turned to leave but he went back on his word and told her to remember the rules to trust no-one.

He told her it was time to make an example and that’s when he disfigured her and then because it was gonna be the coldest of nights he took himself alone to the woods to die. Let the woods finish her off.

Hiccup couldn’t take it in that in this world his father be capable of such acts. That he could be so coldhearted and abuse his mother like that and do such things but then asked the same question he asked her the first time. “How did you survive?”

War Torn Pt. 2 Ballad of Death

Hiccup stayed frozen and rooted to the barren yet bloody ground till the very last second when by some miracle he was unfrozen and able to roll into a small and shallow ravine.

He didn’t want to look at what was going on above his head being thankful for being small and scrawny once more but it was like some powerful force beyond his control was making him watch the battle. He was compelled to watch and he’d no say in the matter. His legs wouldn’t listen to him nor would his eyes it was again as it some unseen power was at play here making sure he saw all the gruesome sight before him and he once more wished he could close his eyes however he couldn’t.

For what he was observing was eviler than the cursed nightmares Hel had once tried murder him with. This was real as it was impossible to tell who was a Viking and who as a dragon because all of them were merciless bloodthirsty savage slaughters. This wasn’t even a battle, this was a butchery and overkill past the point of a bloodbath even! One and all here was a mindless, heartless and soulless monster!

What made it worse it was like even those who were supposed to be on the same side every so often paused to try and execute each other! He saw dragons attack dragons and Vikings attack Vikings in this crazy brawl!

This madness couldn’t be caged, it couldn’t be controlled! He wanted to get away from it, away from these beasts for this was far too ugly to see such blacken souls. This rage was on a level far beyond what he’d ever seen in his life!

If he ever got home he knew with what he was forced to watch it would be haunting for the rest of his life! Leaving him to forever wonder if the scratching on the walls, closet or in the halls were these insane monsters trying to get at him or his family!

He was silently praying this was just a nightmare he was having due to his mother’s sleeping potion and he’d wake up in his bed at any moment and she be there to hug him. But one way or another he knew this was real and not a nightmare. He was in a living nightmare surrounded by monsters!  And he knew this nightmare had only just begun!

He was forced to watch this battle in the dark taking place under a full blood red moon where dragons were acting more brutishly then ever tearing everything apart with razor sharp teeth, though there was no escape for even the Vikings for they fought back even harder, for they too had their own razor sharp things and both sides had lost their souls and hearts.

With so much going on you really couldn’t hear the screams it was just that much insanity and all Hiccup wanted to do was get away and somehow forget it even as it was burned further into his memory.

Finally after what seemed like an eternity this insanity for the time being ceased. It was all over after ten minutes even if it felt like forever. Still Hiccup dropped to the floor of the ravine pressing himself as flat as he could as he didn’t want to be spotted by these people.

The air was chocked already by the stench of death, blood and rotten flesh already and it made you want to throw up even if it didn’t bother anyone up on the land above the ravine. Hiccup had to use all his will power to not vomit as he tried to not make a noise and not let his thundering heart be heard either.

He heard people speaking voices that sound familiar but different too. They’re harsher, ruder, crueler with the words they spoke, but they did sound like people he knew.

Then one voice spoke and his made the blood in him ran cold as ice. It was a voice he know anywhere and he’d never forget it even if he lost all memories he’d never forget this voice. It was his FATHER’s VOICE!

Crawling slowly on his belly he managed to get to the other side of this ravine that had a viewing spot behind a bush were he could watch but not be seen. He then saw his father or who was supposed to be his father.

However this man didn’t look like his father at least not the man he knew to be. He looked more like the harsh and ferocious description of the tales of old they thought Odin looked like before his family had met him personally and got to know him a little.

In the tales of old Odin was described has having untamed blood red hair with a golden eye patch and the finest and wickedest looking of battle armor and being extremely aggressive, uncompromising, unforgiving and not at all fatherly.

Clearly the opposite as Hiccup’s family knew him as the sympathetic fatherly man who was wise and more humble and had brilliant azure eyes and starlight hair who preferred to dress in purple robes.

Nevertheless Stoick the Vast at the moment really looked like the Odin of the old. All the Vikings around him from what Hiccup could see though he wasn’t sure who was who really just liked like dark, twisted and disheveled version of who was from his world. But it was still impossible to say who was who based on appearance alone.

Given how altered their outfits and all the scars, burns and blood and just this whole new mindset of everyone. He could see his father talking with a teenage blond girl who he wasn’t sure it was.

Her blond hair was chopped short as if they’d taken a knife that had been burning at cut their hair with it. Their outfit was torn, stained and a mismatch all over. Their face was unrecognizable as well.

The feelings he got those this was someone very hardcore, who was emotionless and indifferent to everyone and everything around them. Only lived to please his father and only loves were for the thrill of the battle and a lust for more death.

“You did well my champion. You killed 13 dragons alone tonight! We shall feast well tonight! A great feast and dance will be thrown tonight to honor you my champion. Every day we get closer to ending the dragon scourge and one day we shall find the nest and then…”

“Then I shall find that Dragon Queen on their nest and kill her myself and then we can seek out the Dragon King and then rid the world of Dragons! It’s my destiny! I’m your champion, Stoick! I live to do your bidding! I started my training when I was a mere child working dawn till dusk till I bleed but I won’t fail you when the day comes to end this war with the dragons!” the young girl replied in a very harsh but almost emotionless voice.

There was something slightly familiar about her but Hiccup couldn’t figure it out just yet. Instead he watch as he watched as his father yelled at a younger girl to come forward and saw to his horror it was Firefang!

Hiccup was shocked to see her. He remembered what she had looked like before in his world.  This was not that girl... Firefang’s hair was shorter and her pale blonde hair was burned her red tips were now were a blackish red of dried blood. All over her body were cuts. On her arms, legs and two on her face with one right across her right eye which he could barely make out under her bangs.  

She wore dragon claws around her neck and on her skirt, thought it was her eye that creped him out the most. Normally they’re brown but now they’re ember. It soon became obvious she was became obvious was the long abused slave of this blond girl who Stoick called “His champion”.

It was also clear everyone both feared and respected this girl known to one and all as Champion as she was never addressed as anything else and when she spoke everyone else shut up and did exactly what she said or she would likely hurt you even worse than she hurt her whipping girl as she was abusing Firefang who looked almost like she couldn’t even talk which maybe she couldn’t as there was a large slash to her throat that might have been to render her mute so she couldn’t talk back to her mistress.

Wondering why Firefang would be abused like this when Skullette should be there to protect her Hiccup’s ears then picked up Skullette’s voice and saw she was also clearly darker and twisted. Her blond hair was ragged and her two colored eyes looked steely and her normal sisterly attitude was gone replaced by one of enforcer and punisher.

She had a bloodstain twisted evil sword in her hand and whip in the other as she was barking orders left and right and she was just violent, rude and hurting everyone. Ordering them to collect the meat for the feast for the Champion and make sure they only had the finest blood to mix in the wine for her.

How else would they imbued the strength of the dragons into her further if she didn’t consume the finest dragon meat and blood? And if they didn’t step on it they’d have to settle for a few undercooked fatty Viking legs and bad tasting wines made from their blood!

This was really sicken to realize that his people not only were lunatics but also cannibals now! That they had no qualms of any kind for the sick sinful behaviors of murder, abuse and enjoyed torture!

Now really wanting to get out of here and find out how to get home he tried to flee quietly but as he was backing up he tripped over a half torn up corpse and screamed as the thing landed on him and he shoved it off him.

Hearing him screamed alerted these lunatics to his presence. “Whose there?!” barked out Stoick unsheathing his sword yelling out loudly. “You have five seconds to show yourself or prepare to face death!”

“Let’s forget letting them show themselves, my Chief! Let me hunt them! Let me rip them! Let me kill them! Let me honor you! We know the only humans who dare show their ugly faces would be traitors who cannot see we must purge the world of the plague of dragon filth! Let me cleanse it of human filth who are diseased as well!” spoke the blond licking her lips eagerly her blue eyes blazing.

“If you wish to hunt go hunting my champion! Bring me back his head and we will double the feast in your honor!”

“Don’t worry, Chief! I’ve never failed you before and I shall not fail you now! It’s time my brothers and sisters in arms! Time to battle and reap! Time to fight and time to purge and cleanse this world of evil! Let us hunt!” and she screamed with delight and took off!

Hiccup had already taken off five minutes ago but the wind carried the whole exchange to his ears as he tried to figure out where to go. He realized this was Berk but not the Berk he knew.

The land was different and so he realized he knew nothing with the completely different geography. He was stumbling and falling and getting hurt as ran for his life from a pack of raving murderers lead by a deranged young woman who was willing to slay for no other reason than she enjoyed killing things.

He just kept running and even tried jumping across a small waterfall space but fractured his own left foot this time from it. He was banged up and bleeding and just not able to keep going.
Finally they had forced him into a dead end. They’d been playing with him the whole time making sure he only moved where he could get hurt the most and maneuvering him to the point he was under an out group of rocks with his exit blocked and they’d him trapped.

They’d be there in a few minutes to capture him or kill him in a few minutes and that be the end of his life, He didn’t even know why he was in this world all he knew at that moment he’d give anything to be home with his family and other loved ones.

He was crying and as he cried each tear that fell to the rocks beneath his feet seemed to have encased in it a memory of a loved one and a very happy memory indeed.

He was picturing his fate in a few moments of being in a prison cell crawling on his hands and knees begging to be set free. After seeing what he saw on that bloodbath he was terrified of what was gonna happen when these people caught him.

What they had in mind was most likely worst the four walls and iron bars. They’d take away his very soul if they could. Crying so badly he start to pitifully scream that wasn’t heard over the screams getting closer to him.

“Mom! Dad! Boden! Una! I’m sorry for how I was! I’m sorry I didn’t tell you how depressed I was! I don’t want to be standing alone right now in this horrible world about to die! Please I want my family right now! I know I should’ve told you all how I was feeling and ask for help! So please!

So if you can somehow hear me now! I’ll say it right now! If you can hear me right now! Please somehow, please somehow save me now! Get me out of this world of this world and bring me home so we can put this horrible thing behind just help save me right now!
Someone anyone who loves me right now if you can just save me! I need help right now and I need to be saved right now! So somebody save me!” he screamed as loudly as he could as he shut his eyes tightly as he got ready to face the oblivion that is death.

Though Hiccup was expecting death it didn’t come he was swallowed up by blackness and lost all sense of self-awareness but he wasn’t dead. He merely unconscious for several hours.

It wasn’t till at least 12 and half hours later that an exceedingly peculiar aroma aroused him and he started trying to sit up and realized he wasn’t dead. He was lying in a bed made of grass and twigs covered in a patchwork blanket made up of different furs with a much worn pillow propped against a rock.

It took his eyes several more minutes to adjust when he realized he was inside a cave or cavern of some type and then about five more minutes before he realized he wasn’t alone.

About twenty five feet away in the shadows was a figure of someone. They’re hunched over a small fire stirring something in a very old and chipped pot. That had been what had woken him up.

The person was startled by his suddenly arousal they abandon the cooking pot for a moment and felt carefully around for something and grasped a long thin thing on the ground. They then walked very oddly over to Hiccup always keeping in the shadows but never making a sound of any kind.

“Who are you? What is going on? Where am I?” he start to ask, but the shadowy person who he couldn’t tell their gender at all simply pushed him back down gently and began to look him over.

They still stuck to the shadows and never spoke a word as they tended to his injures using strange herbs and what they could to make a makeshift boot similar to the one Boden had worn when he’d fractured his foot.

The person dabbed his forehead with a warm wet cloth and then slowly cleaned off all the blood that had smeared his face when the corpse had fallen on him. Then they took a comb made from looked like baby dragon teeth and combed his hair till all debris was out.

So once his injuries were addressed and he was cleaned up some they moved again strangely back towards the pot. They still in all this time never let the light touch them or spoke a word or even made a sound.

Not even when Hiccup had attempt speak to them as they’d had tended to him. But for some reason the whole time they’d been tending to him it felt familiar and like this person was supposed to be fussing over him like this. As if it was their job.

The person gave the pot one last stir then poured a graying green liquid into a very old wooden bowl and hobbled over to Hiccup and placed into his hands and hobbled backwards again.

“Thank you for your kindness,” as he realized he was starving as he hadn’t even had breakfast before being thrown into this world and running for your life made you only hungrier. Though the moment the liquid touched his tongue he spewed it back out and was coughing.

“No disrespect intended, but was this supposed to be food or did you just use that pot to wash your socks in it? Because that was nasty! Ugh! Even my mother’s cooking isn’t that bad!”

Then for the first time in the whole hour he’d been with this mysterious person they finally made a sound and it was laughter. A pure joyous laughter and it sounded like they’d hadn’t made a sound in years let alone laugh.

They just kept laughing joyfully as if they enjoyed the feeling too much they didn’t want to stop even though he knew it wasn’t that funny. Then he realized he knew who that laughter belong too.

“MOM?!”

The laughter stopped abruptly and the person spoke in a soft voice that sounded rusty as if they’d almost forgotten how to talk. “I’m sorry, boy, I’m not your mother. I’m no-one’s mother. I’m not married even. No-one would marry the traitor of Berk, especially not someone Stoick the Vast went out of his way to make a public example of and left for dead.”

“But aren’t you Valka?”

“How do you know my name? You are not from here that’s for sure. I’ve never seen you on War Torn before and you most certainly don’t act like one of the monsters of War Torn.”

“War Torn? I thought this was the Isle of Berk? And you are Valka are you not? Can you explain what happened here?”

“Well I tell you the tale if you tell me who you are first and how you know my name.”

“My name is Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. I’m yours and Stoick the Vast eldest child. I’ve a brother named Boden and a sister named Una though I’ll say our family story is very complex and we don’t exactly have the full story yet.

But I’m from another world. This sorta happened to me a few months ago but it was all five us pulled into what was supposed to be the life we should’ve lived.

Now it seems only I was pulled into this world but for what purpose I don’t know. But if I’ve learned anything in my 22 years alive everything has a reason for happening and there must be a reason I was sent here and put back in my 15 year old body and I just got to figure it out.”

Even though her face was still in the shadows he could hear her crying and she very slowly touched the side of his face and slowly let her left hand caressed his face as if to make sure he was real.

Then to his surprise she took his chin and turned his face both ways before crying some more. “You do certainly have my good looks other than your eyes are the same as Stoick’s and your nose is more his then mine. I feel nothing in my heart that you would lie,” then she sobbed more and yanked him closely to her chest till the point he couldn’t breathe and was sobbing hard.

It was even more tightly then the first time they hugged in the snow and she seemed to desperately holding him as if he was a true miracle a real gift as her tears now pour down his face.

Still he manage to whisper to her, “I love you very much, Mom, but I can’t breathe.”

“Sorry,” as she relaxed her grip some, but didn’t fully let him go. But still won’t let her own face be seen in the light. In fact she pulled her hood further down over her face.

“I’m terribly sorry for my behavior, Hiccup, but the only thing I’ve ever wanted in my life is children. I want a family to be raised in a world of peace and harmony. Not in this world of death and blood. And to see one child of mine? It’s a miracle I didn’t expect to see not after the life I’ve lived especially.”

“Well, I can tell you a lot of good things first if makes you feel better, Mom, so it be easier to tell the bad.”

“Do you think it easier to hear bad news after good? Or bad news first then good?”

“I’m not sure at the moment, but I hate to see you in this kind of pain and I rather you feel better so if anyone in pain it’s only me.”

“You’re very brave and that’s a great act of love to think of my feelings first. So thank you…son. Okay tell me some good about the world you came from. Tell me what my life of a wife and mother is like?”

“Well, I won’t lie and say it doesn’t start out painful for all of us. In my world from what I understand you and my dad Stoick had a very wonderful courtship and beautiful wedding.
He forgot being chief your first anniversary which led you both to finding a beautiful magical haven you named Lover’s Cove that’s somehow connect to my birth.

I was born early at seven and half months and few months later you’re abducted and spent 20 years with dragons and I was an outcast and mistreated but found my destiny when I shot down a Night Fury whom I named Toothless and trained him and saved everyone from a dragon called the Red Death.

Then went on a bunch of adventures one which led me to finding the souls of my then unknown little brother and sister. My sister Una’s soul was trapped in a cavern and I helped her crossover to Valhalla were our brother Boden took care of her.

A few years later I was reunited with you and Dad died to save me, and I became chief shortly afterwards Valhalla was under Siege by the mad goddess Hel and a former for foe of Berk called Dagur and Una was given a magical amulet that sent her back to Earth to get my help.

She was nearly hurt but you saved her and working together our family saved Valhalla and Una was reborn. The first year of her rebirth was wonderful full of many happy moments and a few down ones but it brought all five of us closer.

Una and Boden discovered their special gifts they’re born with. Boden is an empath for dragons I call him the Dragon Whisperer. He can hear and feel dragon’ thoughts and feelings and Una is a psychic.

Boden was named Soul Keeper to the Dragon Souls in Valhalla with Dad made Chief of the Valhalla Village and we’re given access to a special ten Realm so our family could be together to have family moments.

We spent Una’s six birthday all alive at Lover’s Cove with all our dragons including my dragon Toothless and his new family because we had recently discovered the last female Night Fury whom Una had named Moon Shadow and they’d hatched ten children. Five sons and five daughters.

But though things start out great from that point they’ve progressively gotten worse because for some unknown reason the goddess Hel has it in for our family and for a long time perhaps even longer than any of us been alive been working to destroy us.

None of us have figured out why she seems to have committed many unthinkable and unspeakable crimes and why she’s got a vendetta against our family but she really loathes our family for some reason.

Still all in all you’ve been the best mother any one could ask for and Dad never found any reason to hate you and loves you so much. Even when you’re gone for 20 years his first words to you were “You’re as beautiful as the day I lost you” so he’s never been mad at you ever.

In our proper timeline which I mention we got to live though he loved you more than the air we breathed, in fact he loved all of us more than the air he breathed and he proved it more than once.

So all in all you’re an amazing mother and truly wonderful wife too and I say if we’d lived in our proper timeline you’d been the envy of everyone Berk for being the most beautiful woman, who was also the best wife and mother anyone could ask for,” he finished proudly.

Also he knew the last statement was true because he’d felt it the whole time they’d been in the proper timeline that Valka had been envied by everyone on Berk. He’d seen and felt it by looking in everyone eyes, and it was something his brother and sister agreed with him on. They just hadn’t mentioned it too their mother but they’d agreed they knew it to be true in the other timeline.

Valka again stuck to the shadows but was crying again but her son from another world couldn’t tell if she was happy or sad or something in between. So he scooted over to her ignoring the pain in his left leg and tried to hug her.

“It’s alright, Mom. I know it’s a lot to take in and I’m sorry that this ugly nightmare even exist, I’m not sure even why it exist. But I’m here for you,” he told her gently and tried to touch her face and she jerked back.

“Mom? What’s wrong?” he asked confused, “Why do stick to the shadows? Why don’t you show me your face? What’s wrong? It’s scaring me and I’ve been scared enough by that battle.”

“I cannot show you my face, not yet. But I will now tell you the tale of this land that you were not born into. Why it’s called War Torn and why it’s a land of Death. Please don’t be too scared but that battle you saw is one nightmare upon a thousand this land seen and many more.”

“I’m not sure I’m liking this. And I’ve seen one nightmare and I’ve seen a lot of things in the world I’m from.”

“This land is more ghastly and horrible than anything you can imagine. This world is beyond a living nightmare. Here no-one is your friend. We have no friends, no families, you can only rely on yourself. Trust no-one. It’s kill or be killed. You either learn to kill the second your born or your dead with your first breath.

There are 10 rules here. Rule one is simple. The only person you look out for yourself. 2. Only the strong survive. 3. Trust no-one. 4. Everyone is your enemy 5. If you can’t kill you’re useless. 6. Life is pain and if you care about pain your weak. 7. Emotions are a weakness. 8. Always be ready for battle for it never ends. 9. There no such thing as peace. Rule ten is most important. Ten is “Always be ready to die.”

“That sounds not the code of ethics anyone should live by. People should look out for each other and friends love and trust each other and together you’re stronger.”

“Love?” Valka said the word as if she never heard it before, then told her son “That’s a word so unheard of it’s extinct, Hiccup. This war has raged on for 300 long years and its cost many more then couple of sheep and an arm or a leg,” sighing deeply she revealed the true cost of this war,
“It’s cost us our hearts and soul. Ultimately its cost us all our humanity.”

“You mean no-one here not even the dragons know anything about love? Anything at all?! You don’t know about love, family, and friendship? You don’t have hope or faith or any good at all in this messed-up world? Nothing good at all?! Only rotting decaying death?! How does one live in death?!”

“You really don’t live in a world you’re expected to die in the moment you’re born, Hiccup. Most children don’t even survive basic training which they begin as soon as they old enough and strong enough to lift an ax.

The last five students of the old teacher Gobber only one came out alive. Four of them died one way or another. Gobber was a bad teacher but Stoick told him to intensify the training as the war raged on and got worse.

It became too deadly in training and well. For example a boy named Fishlegs when he was made to face a Gronckle alone to test his knowledge on shot limits he didn’t know the right answer and well he had the last shot blow a burning a huge hole right through him.  He was what ten years old?

A year later twins Ruffnut and Tuffnut told to make sure they knew how to disarm a Zippleback? They got the wrong heads and were killed in the explosion it caused all that was found of them was Ruff’s left index finger and Tuff’s right middle toe.

Snotlout tried to take on a Nightmare by himself but it proved again too powerful and it burned him so badly he’d third degree burns and he was in a coma for a month till he passed as the result of the injuries.”

Hiccup was horrified to learn what had become of his friends and now he feared what had happened to his true love and dreaded what had happened to Astrid.

“What about Astrid? What happened to her? How did she die?”

“I wish she had died it would’ve saved her soul some if she hadn’t lived. If she hadn’t lived she wouldn’t have become what she is today!”

He looked at his mother confused, “She’s alive but you’re saying she better off dead? Why? Why would she better off dead?”

“Because being Stoick the Vast’s champion is a fate worse than death if I had to pick a fate worse than death! She’s a heartless killing machine! All she thinks about is pleasing! All she wants to do is kill! She refuses to eat or drink anything but dragon meat and blood.

She almost never sleeps but is training nonstop. She’s the cruelest, callous and emotionless individual I’ve ever seen! There is not a sliver of humanity in that shell of a person! All she knows is killing, Hiccup. She’s got an insatiable lust for blood, fighting and war. Stoick even gave her own personal slave; a poor girl named Firefang to abuse to no end.

Astrid has no heart or soul and I pity her for becoming what she’s turn out to be. Virtually no-one can recall her before she was known only as Stoick’s Champion.

I? On the other hand do have the vaguest of memories of a very small fair-haired child who did know how to smile and laugh once. A little girl who was once was kind enough to get a drink of water for a woman who couldn’t walk to the well to get it herself because she’d sprained her ankle,” she turned away looking into the shadows and was very quiet and Hiccup was very quiet too and finally Valka finished tell her son what had happened to his beloved.

“Now that I’ve seen what Astrid’s become I don’t know what to say or think or who I really blame. All I know this whole world is lacking a heart and soul that would’ve saved a lot of lives from meaningless death and all this senseless violence!” she finally finished in a rage that filled their little space.

Hiccup was just very pale at the thought the woman he loved so much and the woman he gave his virginity too was in this reality just murderer who knew nothing but killing.

His mother notice this seem to shock him the most and dared to ask, “Is Astrid special to you in your world?”

Gulping he nodded slowly and answered in a low but hallow voice. “She the woman I love and you helped me a few months back make love too.”

“Wow…” Valka face may have been in the dark but one could clearly guess what sort of messed up expression she had on it too hear that kind of news.

“Um, not to be the bearer of more bad news but more needing to hear some happiness but what is Astrid like where you are from?”

“She not a heartless killer. She brave, loyal and beautiful inside and out,” and he then launched into the full detailed story of everything from their first date of him and Toothless kidnapping her and to the most recent.

She seemed enchanted by it all and her part in helping Astrid make love with her son which was clearly amusing her a lot. She then chuckled and whispered in a delighted voice, “Well at least you fell in love the right way.”

“Huh?” Hiccup was confused and still in shock with everything going on.

“Oh, sorry,” his mother apologized but she explained in a slightly happier tone, “but even in this world devoid of love, I do know there is a right way to fall in love and that you don’t find love it finds you. Some people think love is as easy as looking into someone’s eyes and its instant and you like the legends of old and you live happily ever after and whatnot,” shaking her head to show that wasn’t the truth.

“Okay but what do you mean Astrid and I did it right?” he still asked in confusion and why was this being brought up but somehow feeling this was still important.

“You did it right because you took your time, my son. Because true love takes time and goes through several stages and you have to love someone past physical attraction. Plus you also have to be your lover’s friend before you can be their lover.

Furthermore a date doesn’t have to anything more than just spending time with the one you care about. It can be as simple as taking a walk alone together. As long as you spend time together and show signs you care that’s all you really need.

It just sounds to me when she kissed you after you woke up alive from killing the Red Death she pretty much sealed the deal you two were a couple. Then you just started going through the stages of falling in love properly and whether you needed to make it official or not you were pretty much a couple already.”

“Wow. I wish you’d been around when this was going on in my world to help me understand that and to help Boden with his love life and hope you can teach that to Una. Also I wish someone could’ve explained the whole subject of girls better to me to begin with so I would’ve been a little less self-conscious about it all.”

“Hiccup everyone is self-conscious, not just you.”

“Alright, but you not explained why in this world you and Dad aren’t together or why he is the way he is. What’s up with that? I’ve never seen two people love each other more than you two. Even in in death he only loves you more.

Like he was more worried you murdered him again when Boden busted his foot before his 16th birthday party than anything else! I’m thinking what can hurt a man who is already dead but he was so scared of you! The three of us never seen Dad look the way he did! So I’m not understanding this world where the two of you are not together?”

“I’m sorry to say that the Stoick the Vast here has no love within him for if he did he wouldn’t have done what he did to me. A woman he loves so much in another world that he calls more beautiful than Lady Frigga and do anything for.”

“What did Dad do you?”

“Don’t judge him if you get back to your world, he’s not the man you know in this world he’s someone else. A man without a heart and soul. So don’t hate or hold this against the man who is your father if you return to your world,” she asked of her son first and he nodded but she allowed herself to be in the firelight at last

Then she lowered her hood slowly and very slowly she turned to face Hiccup and he recoiled in fright and nothing had scared him more then what he was looking at right now. Not that battle he’d witnessed or the horror stories he’d heard could trump what was the true nightmare of this horrible world where he was never born.

His mother’s face was horribly disfigured. Her beauty was gone and now she was as ugly as she was once beautiful. Her beautiful long auburn the hair his brother and him had inherit had burn obviously hacked off with a burning knife because you smell the burned tips and see it was a knife that had done it.

But her face was disfigured almost beyond recognition and her body was mangled and broken to the point he could see now why she moved the way she did.

“What HAPPENED?!” he screamed in disbelief as he touched his mother’s face as if his touch could magically remove the disfiguring burns, scars and gashes all over his mother’s face.

Her kind lovely blue eyes still held tears and he was able to wipe those away and she held him close and she told him what had happened and reminded him again the Stoick that had done this wasn’t the same one who was his father.

She explained years ago shortly before his friends began training his mother had protested it to Stoick screaming that they shouldn’t send more children to the slaughterhouse to die.

That’s when he beat her up the first time. And then any time she opened her mouth to protest he beat her up worse than before. But she did all she could to protect those five children but failed and then one night during a training session a new dragon they’d captured by off chance a Stormcutter was forced into the arena for them to fight and kill it.

The children were only nine years old and it was too much for her to bear. She’d managed to knock out Gobber and get the dragon free and as the dragon was trying to escape the raving lunatics start of course being well raving lunatics and accidently set a house on fire unaware a mother had left her new baby sleeping there.

She’d been running trying to not get caught but saw the dragon to get in and then saw it was trying to rescue the baby. Amazed after seeing so many years of bloodshed that one creature would think of another she helped both the Stormcutter and the baby to safety.

But rather than thank her for her part in saving a child’s life she was condemned to die for her ‘traitorous actions’ she was dragged to the arena where Stoick was waiting for her.

The deal was if she beat Stoick she would be allowed to live and could leave War Torn if she failed to beat him she was to die. She tried to fight as it was her life on the line and it was the most hellish fight either had fought and she was already suffered so many beatings from Stoick so her body was already badly injured.

Still she managed to use her brains to get the upper hand and disarmed him but when everyone told her she had to kill him to be set free she couldn’t do it. Not after seeing compassion for the first time in her life and knowing a silver of it.

She told Stoick she was willing to spare his life if he would spare hers and just let her leave the island and let her live in exile. He told her they’d a deal and she turned to leave but he went back on his word and told her to remember the rules to trust no-one.

He told her it was time to make an example and that’s when he disfigured her and then because it was gonna be the coldest of nights he took himself alone to the woods to die. Let the woods finish her off.

Hiccup couldn’t take it in that in this world his father be capable of such acts. That he could be so coldhearted and abuse his mother like that and do such things but then asked the same question he asked her the first time. “How did you survive?”

“Not sure to be honest. I was beaten till was senseless and left for dead. I didn’t even think I awaken into Valhalla. But when I came too I found myself in this place.

This strange cavern and I’ve remained here for the last six years. I’ve never left and all I know is whoever takes care of me leaves food and supplies by the back wall at the far end. They make a special sound to tell me they’ve come but I’ve never seen them myself. But here I’ve stayed.”

“So if you have been in this cavern all this time and that you have no idea where it is at all then how did you rescue me?”

“I didn’t someone brought you to me. But it wasn’t who takes care of me. It was someone else. Someone similar to my caretaker but they’re obviously very injured because they left a lot of blood behind.”

“Wow this is just messed up! This is more messed up than anything I’ve ever been through and I’ve been through a lot in the last 22 years and now I’m in a nightmare and no there no way out and is the reason I’m here to punish me for what I said this morning to my family?”

“Punish you? What are you talking about, Hiccup?”

“I was in a dark place, Mom. Something my Mom I in my world noticed. I really scared my sister Una, something I never wanted to do.”

“Why don’t you start at the beginning and tell me a little more. Sounds like you have more on your mind. If you talk about it might explain why you’re here.”

“Okay let me tell you a little more about my life and the feelings I’ve kept bottled up for 22 long years that I never told anyone least of all my family who I should’ve told the most.”

He confessed to this world version of his mother how the years of pain and suffering even after releasing the silent scream hadn’t been enough. The pain, the loneness, the years of different kinds of silent abuse in different ways, never having the happiness he truly sought and wanted. Being denied being with his family. How perfect their life should’ve been. The pressures of being Chief and all the demands of life and just how all the things had come to a head this morning.

How he’d finally reached his breaking point and how his years of hiding his depression had finally come to the surface and how he’d just let it all out at the table how all those many different feelings just exploded out and he scared his family and himself and he just wanted out.
But as he said there was no way out for him ever.

“Never for me is there a way out and I’ve done it to myself and everyone around me! Everywhere I turn I’ve hurt someone I love and nothing I do can change the things I’ve done.

Now the worst thing I’ve done to my family and friends is hiding all things from them and I cannot hide the shame I feel from doing that. There is no pray to the gods that gonna take away this pain.

All I felt this morning after a sleepless night was that there was no way out of this dark place for me. No hope, no future for me that I couldn’t be free. This morning I couldn’t see another way or face another day.

I don’t know where I went wrong and now to punish me I’m in a world where everyone I loved are gone. I wish I could do everything differently but no-one has the power to turn back time.
So now I’m still lost in this storm inside of me lost in this dark place in my mind that I just cannot see a way out,” he finished explaining as he collapsed and just looked sorry and ashamed.

This world Valka looked at her child in wonder and amazement and touched her own face which she almost never did before she sat down next to him and kissed his head.

“Hiccup, we all feel depressed and we all reach our breaking point, but that’s the time we need to reach out the most for our loved ones to help us. Let me tell you right now.
I don’t think you’re sent to this world as a punishment.”

He gazed at his mother disfigured face as she dried his tears in wonder, “I’m not being punished for being depressed?”

“No, son, you right now are the answers to this world’s prayers. When I look at you and I hear the things you’ve told me you’ve done in your life in this other world? This place you describe and the friends it’s filled with? I feel happy and joyful something that I don’t think anyone felt in this world ever.

I know you’ll find this hard but sometimes we have to forgive ourselves. You have indeed suffered a great deal and you have not suffered alone. But you did make a mistake not telling the other me and the rest of our family how bad it was eating you up.

We don’t chose when we hit our breaking point but we can choose to make a choice to suffer silently and alone or ask people who love us for help when we need it.”

“I know I’ve always gotten strength from my friends and my family when I needed it the most to do the most impossible of things in this journey that is my life.”

“That’s how you’ll find your path out this dark place, Hiccup and maybe your way home. You were sent here to do something and if you can figure out some of it and do what you’re meant to do you might be able to go home to the other me who is properly very frighten she’ll lose you.”

“I didn’t mention this but I was told my gift is the power of love and I was told many times over it’s the most powerful of gifts and that I’ve done miracles but I couldn’t think of what I’ve done when I woke up with that much depression this morning.”

“From what I’ve heard from you, my son, I’ve heard someone who’s done many miracles big and small, Also despite all the troubles and suffering he’s been through does have a wonderful life with a lot of people who care him. Especially his parents and his brother and sister who wouldn’t want him to throw his life away when all he needs to do is ask for help in his darkest hour.”

“Your right about that. Never really thought about it that way. But if I’m meant to do a miracle here to get home I believe I know what that miracle is. But it’s one I cannot do by myself. I need my best friend who is most likely the one who brought me here. If he’s not dead…” his voice trailed off.

“Who would’ve brought you too me? And how would they know to bring you to me?”

“Oh Toothless is the smartest dragon I know. Night Furies are quiet intelligent. We did learn something from being pulled in and out of the broken timeline into our proper one. Some bonds cannot be broken. Our family bonds never shattered even though Hel apparently did something to kill my brother and sister before their births and yet we still are bonded.

I have to believe Toothless is still here and I need him to do what I’m meant to do here and I think it’s the same miracle that start me on the path to use my gift of love. If I can end a war once I can do it again.

I ended a war by bringing to worlds together in love and friendship even if it cost me my foot sadly. If I must repeat that miracle to help War Torn remember what humanity is if that’s my purpose then that’s what I got to do.”

“Are you sure you want to try this? War is all anyone knows, Hiccup? Stoick will kill you even if you are his flesh and blood from another world. I’m not sure how you plan to teach something to a world that won’t listen.”

“Well, I’ll figure it out. But we need to find Toothless. I just know he brought me to you and I won’t abandoned my best friend in this world!”

“You love and devotion is such an admiral quality.”

“Will you help me, Mom?”

“I’ll do my best, but I warn you now I’m not in much shape to fight. Again I’m your mother either way and I won’t let my child be in harm’s way, but I cannot protect you well given I’m broken in many ways, but I’ll protect you best I can,” she promised him as she leaned on her walking stick that was in fact her staff.

“Can you summon Cloudjumper with that?” he asked excitedly looking at it.

“Cloudjumper?” she asked confused as he helped her walk to back of the cavern to open the back entrance. When the rock slide away he was surprised to find out in this world his mother’s home this time was inside the rock formation where the small cliff that was his hideaway with Astrid was, they called it Lover’s Bloom.

“Cloudjumper is the name of your dragon, the Stormcutter who shares your soul. I think he’s been taking care of you since you saved him.” Hiccup explained as he set his mom down on some rocks.

“Well, I can try, but first are you sure your dragon brought you to me?”

“Well, one we’re high on a mountainside cliff only a dragon can get us up here, Mom.”

“True enough.”

“And two, Toothless was definitely here and I think he’s hurt, badly.” Hiccup replied seriously as he picked up jet black scales stained with blood.

“Oh my. Okay I’ve seen and had enough death. Time for us to have some life and love return to the land. Let me see if I can do this. You know how I do this in your world?”

Shaking his head, “You never explained it sorry, though you did get mad one time when Una played with it.”

Smiling at that, “Well, it’s not a toy so that’s normal, I guess I’ll just have to trust myself, can you steady me?” so Hiccup held his mother up as she raised the staff above her head and swung in a full circle three times and they prayed this would work.

After a few minutes nothing happened and Valka couldn’t stand anymore with her broken body and had to sit down again.

“I’m sorry I failed you son.”

“No, Mom, you never failed me or any of your children. You’ve loved us all and that’s all a mom has to really do is love her children with all her heart,” as they’re hugging tightly they didn’t notice at first a huge shadow blotting out the light and then screamed a bit when Cloudjumper landed delicately on the cliff.

“Cloudjumper! Nice to see you’re okay! Thank you again for saving my mother. It looks like your job is to be her protector. Thank you,” Hiccup said as he held out his hand and Cloudjumper touched it.

“How are you doing this miracle?” asked his mother.

“It’s a gift our family has,” he replied as he helped over to him and Valka and Cloudjumper made eye contact and she then knew he’d saved her life many times over.

Lowering himself he then used one of his wings to help them onto him and then waited till they’re seated comfortable.

“It’s alright, Mom, he won’t let you fall or get hurt. You’re his Rider and best friend,” Hiccup assured his mother who looked a bit scared, she wasn’t fearless this time around, but trusted her son. He then clutching Toothless’s scale asked Cloudjumper, “Cloudjumper, if you know where Toothless is take me too him. I need him and I need his help to save this world and get home. Please help.”

Cloudjumper roared and they were off.

War Torn Pt. 2 Ballad of Death

 

Hiccup still frozen in fear as two on coming raging forces of homicidal killers are about hit him at the last second manages to roll out of the way into a small ravine and watches in horror the bloodiest, hellish battle he’s ever witness one of no mercy and full of carnage and each side has no humanity in them whatsoever.

 

Everyone is a bloodthirsty murderous monster! It’s impossible to tell who the Viking is and who is the dragon as all are behaving like brainless beast. He tries to shut his eyes and ran away but his legs won’t move and he for some reason can’t look away or shut his eyes.

 

He catches glimpse in all the messy carnage of the dragons and humans and gets a feeling he knows them but doesn’t know them at the same time. All this seems to last an eternity but in actually it all over in ten minutes.

 

He hears footsteps heading towards him and ducks further down laying as flat as he can on the ground praying not to be seen or heard. His heart threating to come out of his chest.

 

He starts hearing voice that sound familiar speaking but at the same time they don’t sound right. But he does recognize one. It’s one he would recognize forever. His father’s voice. Crawling slowly around the ravine till he gets to a point he can look from behind a bush on the far side without being seen he watches the scene going on.

 

His father looks very different and he’s talking to a teenage female he doesn’t recognize. But she seems very hardcore, emotionless with a lust for battle and blood.

 

He calls her ‘his champion’ and she replies curtly she won’t fail him ever. Then yells at a young girl nearby and hits her and Hiccup realizes it Firefang who looks like she’s the teenage girl slave.

 

He wonders where Skullette is and then hears Skullette by the dead bodies of the dragons ordering everyone to collect the meat for tonight feast as they celebrate tonight victory and if not they can always serve human meat instead of dragon meat. She holds a large evil and bloodstained sword as she orders people about this task.

 

Fearing for his life Hiccup tries to leave unnoticed by trips over a dead body and screams and alerts everyone to his presence.

 

Stoick orders everyone to find the one who screaming and bring them to him. Saying it might be one of the ‘traitor’s followers or worse! But all who are not loyal must die!

 

The blond hardcore woman yells the a battle cry and gives chase and Hiccup runs trying to figure where he is and what’s going on. Stumbling and hurting himself as he tries outrun the insane mob after him.

 

Finally he trapped against a rock wall and they’re closing in and fearing he’ll die where he is he close his eyes knowing this is the end and then all the noise stops darkness overtakes him.

 

He wakes up later to find himself cave of some kind on a bed made mix of fur, grass and twigs. There is a small fire nearby with someone hunched over it.

 

“Ugh, What happened?” is all he can say and the person who keeps to the shadows fumbles for something before going over to him and pushing him gently back down. Their touch feels familiar as gently hands began to look him over and examine all his injuries. The still refusing to show their face goes back to the fire where something is cooking in a chipped pot pours something into a chipped wooden bowl and offers it too him still not speaking.

 

He thanks the stranger and starts to drink it before spewing it back out and asking if that was supposed to be food or did they just use that pot to do their laundry?  

 

This is the first time the person makes a sound and its laughter and it sounds like it the first time this person made a sound in a long time let alone laugh.

 

Hiccup knows that laugh and screams “MOM?!”

 

The person looks startled and says there name is Valka but she’s not a mom she’s not even married. Why would anyone marry the traitor of Berk? The one who Stoick the Vast has spent so much of his time trying to kill when he’s not on his mad quest to purge the world of dragons?

 

Hiccup shocked to find this out and ask how she cannot be with her true love and husband. What is this place what happened here and begins asking a billion questions?

 

Valka tells them the history of Berk or as many have long since renamed this land War Torn. For the last 300 years the war with the dragons have taken its toll growing steadily worse robbing people of more than just a few sheep and the occasional limb.

 

In more recent years people have lost their humanity all together. Even the dragons no longer have hearts or souls. It’s truly a land of killed or be killed. Nothing but a balled of death. All anyone knows is the ways of pain. Everyone is born to be a killer when the moment they’re out of the womb.

 

There is no time to make friends, or to have fun and joy. There is no hope or faith. It’s world full of hate, pain and killing and just blood everywhere. This world also lacking one big thing what would be a miracle to save it. If only there was someone could teach people to love once more then maybe someone could save everyone.

 

But sadly how do you teach a world about something that everyone has long forgotten about for over a 100 years?

Hiccup ask about the people in the village and she informs those who cannot survive the basic training are doomed. Fishlegs and the Twins died in training. Snotlout was in a coma from training and died a month later.

 

Gobber who taught the insane lessons died after Astrid the only to survive the training by defending Stoick from a herd of Changewings.

 

Getting a really bad feeling he ask what happened to Astrid and Valka answers she’s the deranged bloodthirsty blond Stoick calls “his champion’ who next to lead as he never married and has no child to take over after him.

 

Hiccup then ask what the story about the animosity between her and Stoick and why aren’t they together?

 

Valka finally steps into the light and removes her head and her son from another world recoils in fright to see how horrible disfigured his beautiful mother is. Her beautiful hair has been chopped off and her face as bruises and scars and she looks like she’s been beaten many times.

 

She explains long ago she tried to bring peace and hope and love and paid the price for it. She was declared and traitor and Stoick made a public display of her by bringing her to the arena of her traitorous defiance for her actions one day. A day she tried to help a Stormcutter get free and save a child from being left in a house to be burned alive.

 

She saved both lives but for her ‘traitorous actions’ she was brought to the arena and told to fight and she fought with all she had but no-one ever was able to beat Stoick the Vast ever. Therefore she was seriously and brutally beaten by Stoick who often took sadistic pleasure in those who didn’t follow his orders to leave the weak to die and not slaughter the monstrosities that were dragons.

 

She was then basically left in the woods on the coldest of nights to die from her injuries as it was the cruelest and unusualness of punishments to be made the example of all who didn’t stay true to the madness that is War Torn.

 

So he ask how did you survive and why did she save him?

 

She answers she has no idea how she lived through that night as she was unconscious from the beating from Stoick to make sure she be dead. When she came too she felt she wouldn’t even get to Valhalla.

 

But she awoke in this cavern and found someone had made her a little home she’d stayed here since that time. She admits she doesn’t know who brings her food and supplies as they always come when she’s fast asleep. They just leave the parcel of supplies in a secret chamber at the back of the cavern and she knows they’ve come because they always wake her up before they vanish with a special melody of some kind but she never wakes up enough to identify the sound.

 

As for why she rescued him? She didn’t he was brought to her but she felt whoever brought her to him wasn’t her guardian but someone similar because whoever did it was while being silent had left a large blood smear on back wall.

 

Leaning on her walking stick she help him down the cavern and she showed him they’re in what he realized what in his world the inside of rock wall where he and Astrid found Lover’s Bloom!

 

To be sure he pushed the back wall and sure enough sliding it aside was his and Astrid’s small little hideaway. Not that it was all the same but it was clear they’re far enough and high enough away he’d a pretty good feeling who’d brought him and his mother here to protect them from the angry villagers.

 

Then his heart sank further as he say smeared everywhere fresh bloody tracks with a few black scales. “Toothless,” he whispered. Telling his mother they’ve to find the dragons who are their keepers and make sure they’re okay.

 

He then figures if he can save War Torn from destroying itself he can go home but Valka tries to discourage him. Saying it is hopeless no-one can save this world and it be foolish to try and even look for a dragon with raving murdering lunatics all over the island and that Astrid is not the Champion of Stoick for nothing!

 

They’re better off staying hidden and just living in the cave and he surprised to see his mother being so cowardly and tells her they need to find Cloudjumper and Toothless and he needs to do this.

 

He says he can do this as he’s done it before and if he has die trying he will so try and call for Cloudjumper. Feeling empowered by this boy and that he cares so much for her and this world she takes the walking stick that is her staff and manages to summon Cloudjumper and they go look for Toothless with Hiccup hoping it’s not too late to save Toothless’s life and this world and get him home.

Their touch feels familiar as gently hands began to look him over and examine all his injuries. The still refusing to show their face goes back to the fire where something is cooking in a chipped pot pours something into a chipped wooden bowl and offers it too him still not speaking.

 

He thanks the stranger and starts to drink it before spewing it back out and asking if that was supposed to be food or did they just use that pot to do their laundry?  

 

This is the first time the person makes a sound and its laughter and it sounds like it the first time this person made a sound in a long time let alone laugh.

 

Hiccup knows that laugh and screams “MOM?!”

 

The person looks startled and says there name is Valka but she’s not a mom she’s not even married. Why would anyone marry the traitor of Berk? The one who Stoick the Vast has spent so much of his time trying to kill when he’s not on his mad quest to purge the world of dragons?

 

Hiccup shocked to find this out and ask how she cannot be with her true love and husband. What is this place what happened here and begins asking a billion questions?

 

Valka tells them the history of Berk or as many have long since renamed this land War Torn. For the last 300 years the war with the dragons have taken its toll growing steadily worse robbing people of more than just a few sheep and the occasional limb.

 

In more recent years people have lost their humanity all together. Even the dragons no longer have hearts or souls. It’s truly a land of killed or be killed. Nothing but a balled of death. All anyone knows is the ways of pain. Everyone is born to be a killer when the moment they’re out of the womb.

 

There is no time to make friends, or to have fun and joy. There is no hope or faith. It’s world full of hate, pain and killing and just blood everywhere. This world also lacking one big thing what would be a miracle to save it. If only there was someone could teach people to love once more then maybe someone could save everyone.

 

But sadly how do you teach a world about something that everyone has long forgotten about for over a 100 years?

Hiccup ask about the people in the village and she informs those who cannot survive the basic training are doomed. Fishlegs and the Twins died in training. Snotlout was in a coma from training and died a month later.

 

Gobber who taught the insane lessons died after Astrid the only to survive the training by defending Stoick from a herd of Changewings.

 

Getting a really bad feeling he ask what happened to Astrid and Valka answers she’s the deranged bloodthirsty blond Stoick calls “his champion’ who next to lead as he never married and has no child to take over after him.

 

Hiccup then ask what the story about the animosity between her and Stoick and why aren’t they together?

 

Valka finally steps into the light and removes her head and her son from another world recoils in fright to see how horrible disfigured his beautiful mother is. Her beautiful hair has been chopped off and her face as bruises and scars and she looks like she’s been beaten many times.

 

She explains long ago she tried to bring peace and hope and love and paid the price for it. She was declared and traitor and Stoick made a public display of her by bringing her to the arena of her traitorous defiance for her actions one day. A day she tried to help a Stormcutter get free and save a child from being left in a house to be burned alive.

 

She saved both lives but for her ‘traitorous actions’ she was brought to the arena and told to fight and she fought with all she had but no-one ever was able to beat Stoick the Vast ever. Therefore she was seriously and brutally beaten by Stoick who often took sadistic pleasure in those who didn’t follow his orders to leave the weak to die and not slaughter the monstrosities that were dragons.

 

She was then basically left in the woods on the coldest of nights to die from her injuries as it was the cruelest and unusualness of punishments to be made the example of all who didn’t stay true to the madness that is War Torn.

 

So he ask how did you survive and why did she save him?

 

She answers she has no idea how she lived through that night as she was unconscious from the beating from Stoick to make sure she be dead. When she came too she felt she wouldn’t even get to Valhalla.

 

But she awoke in this cavern and found someone had made her a little home she’d stayed here since that time. She admits she doesn’t know who brings her food and supplies as they always come when she’s fast asleep. They just leave the parcel of supplies in a secret chamber at the back of the cavern and she knows they’ve come because they always wake her up before they vanish with a special melody of some kind but she never wakes up enough to identify the sound.

 

As for why she rescued him? She didn’t he was brought to her but she felt whoever brought her to him wasn’t her guardian but someone similar because whoever did it was while being silent had left a large blood smear on back wall.

 

Leaning on her walking stick she help him down the cavern and she showed him they’re in what he realized what in his world the inside of rock wall where he and Astrid found Lover’s Bloom!

 

To be sure he pushed the back wall and sure enough sliding it aside was his and Astrid’s small little hideaway. Not that it was all the same but it was clear they’re far enough and high enough away he’d a pretty good feeling who’d brought him and his mother here to protect them from the angry villagers.

 

Then his heart sank further as he say smeared everywhere fresh bloody tracks with a few black scales. “Toothless,” he whispered. Telling his mother they’ve to find the dragons who are their keepers and make sure they’re okay.

 

He then figures if he can save War Torn from destroying itself he can go home but Valka tries to discourage him. Saying it is hopeless no-one can save this world and it be foolish to try and even look for a dragon with raving murdering lunatics all over the island and that Astrid is not the Champion of Stoick for nothing!

 

They’re better off staying hidden and just living in the cave and he surprised to see his mother being so cowardly and tells her they need to find Cloudjumper and Toothless and he needs to do this.

 

He says he can do this as he’s done it before and if he has die trying he will so try and call for Cloudjumper. Feeling empowered by this boy and that he cares so much for her and this world she takes the walking stick that is her staff and manages to summon Cloudjumper and they go look for Toothless with Hiccup hoping it’s not too late to save Toothless’s life and this world and get him home.
