5 Hiccstrid AUs Challenge

This is basically an old life journal thing from back in the heydays of the Naruto fandom (great times, people, great times) in which you had to write 10 very short stories (100-200 words each) for a pairing. I didn’t get further than five without falling into cliché’s. Feel free to copy this and also do this challenge if you feel up to it! It’s harder than it looks.

1)      Space AU

‘Code of Conduct, Rule 12: Do not land on unknown planets without permission’ Was one of the first rules they taught Hiccup in the Deep Space Frontier Academy. ‘Section B: if you are unable to follow these orders, do not exit your ship.’

Hiccup had never been good at following orders though. When his ship ‘The Toothless’ had an engine failure halfway through his first frontier mission, he’d decided to land on the first planet he could find and fix it himself instead of turning back.

Halfway through the job he heard a strange sound, and decided to investigate. Hiccup had always been good at breaking rules, although often on accident. ‘Code of Conduct, Rule 1: Never interact with an unknown alien life form’

He turned around and looked straight into her curious bioluminescent blue eyes, and the yellow skinned alien stared right back at him. “Uhm… hi?”

2)      Pirate AU

“What are we going to do with the lad, captain Hofferson?” Ruff asked her once they’d tied all the remaining passengers of the Navy owned ship they had just conquered.

“Why, the same thing I do with all lads.” Astrid replied with a wicked smile. “Feed them to the sharks of course!”

“Are you sure, this one is pretty.” Tuffnut said lecherously while she cupped her bound prisoner’s face.  “Especially his eyes. A bit too scrawny for me though, but I know that’s what gets you hot.”

Astrid narrowed her eyes and took another good look at the boy. Then it dawned on her. The gods smiled upon her tonight! “You’re right Ruff, those are no ordinary eyes. I’d recognize them everywhere after I nearly managed to slash one out of Admiral Haddock’s head.” She remembered with glee, and to her delight the lad turned white. “Ruff, Tuff, bring him to my cabin, but be gentle! We wouldn’t want to hurt the only son of Admiral Stoick the Vast, now would we?”

3)      Transboy AU

“I love you.”

“I’m sorry Hiccup, but I’m straight.”

“I’m a guy, Astrid. I’m a man, get that into your head already.”

“In my head you’ll always be a girl. It’s hard to think of you as anything else.”

“I never was a girl. My body might have been. But never me. I never thought you’d be so shallow.”

“I’m sorry. I’m really sorry. Can’t we just be friends like we always were? I miss us.”

“We can be friends, but I’m not going to pretend to be a girl anymore for you. If you can’t accept me the way I am, then maybe it’s a good thing you can’t see past your own conception of gender.”

“Wait, Hiccup, I’m sorry!”

4)      Hogwards AU

His dad had been beyond disappointed when he was sorted into Ravenclaw instead of Gryffindor like all their ancestors had before. Hiccup had never regretted begging the sorting hat to place him anywhere but Gryffindor on that fateful night.

That was, until his first Quidditch match against Gryffindor as the Ravenclaw seeker. He was only a third year student and it was his first year on the team, and yet he’d already been named the most important player of the year. It was the last match of the year and Hiccup wanted to cement his victory. He was a natural flier, one with the wind and his handmade broom. He couldn’t lose!

That was, until he saw one of the Gryffindor beaters. She was from his year, and yet he’d never seen her like this. Astrid Hofferson was normally all rules and duty, but now her courageous lion heart shone brighter than ever. He fell of his broom at the sight of her doing a back flip, wild like a dragon untamed. He fell again when their eyes met, and again almost bit of his tongue in trying to thank her for helping catching him in mid air. He couldn’t focus on the golden snitch because there was a golden haired goddess flying all around him and Hiccup knew then and there that he was doomed. Lost. Bye bye professional Quidditch career!

Love was the strangest kind of magic after all.

5)      Lord of The Rings (ish) AU

“We can’t be together Hiccup.”  Astrid pleaded again and again. “I’ll grow old and senile one day and you’ll remain behind to take care of my mess. I can’t do that Hiccup, not to you. I know your heart.” Hiccup wasn’t a typical elf in many ways, but one of their customs he would keep, she knew, and that was the law that they would only marry once.

“But I love you!” The young elf exclaimed desperately.

“And so do I. And that’s why I won’t let you do this to yourself. Because you’re an elf meant to live forever, and I’m just a human, only here temporary.” Astrid looked deep into those mesmerizing eyes, and knew that Hiccup would die of grief if she’d let him.

“But, I can change that.” He said hopefully, offering her his hand and heart and soul. “I may not be able to grand you eternal life, but I can give up a part of mine.”

“Stop being so stupid! I forbid it, do you hear me? If you do that I will never talk to you again!” She screamed at him, outraged at the mere suggestion. “I’ll be your lover if you would allow me to, but I’ll never be your killer, Hiccup. You’re meant for an eternal life, and I will not be the one that takes it away.”

“But don’t you see?” He said with that sincere singing tone that made her human heart skip a beat. “A life without you, eternal or not, is not a life at all. I’d rather live short and passionately with the woman I loved, than an eternity without you.”

Also, mild flashing warning around 3:31 if you’re sensitive to that sort of stuff.))

guiltyfandoms replied to your post: MY LEFT ARM FOR YURI MANGA NOT SET IN …

The question is tho: where? CEO’s of rival companies?

Bakers. Space pirates. Lawyers. Gangsters. Whacky buddy cops. Working mothers. Wrestlers. Spies. Pro athletes. Small business owners. Mythical creatures. Queens and princesses. Knights and nobles. Magicians and monks. 



"Why hello there John!  Happy to see me?  ’Cause I’m happy to see you!"

All this needs now is some suitably potent music to suit the mood.  But what would fit?
