Mericcup Week 2015 Day 2 >> “Duty means doing the thing your heart may well regret.” (Princess and the Pauper)

An alternate gifset of this, in which Hiccup interrupts Merida’s wedding with that so called ‘dramatic flair’ of his, steals her away and flies off into the sunset.



“Duty means doing the thing your heart may well regret.”
(Princess and the Pauper)

Dunbroch has been invaded by dragons lead by Hiccup after he chose his people over Merida. Hiccup does his best to convince Merida that he only cared for her so he could conquer he kingdom, when in reality he is really trying to make her leave before the Viking ships arrive.

On my recent trip to the bogon High plains in Victoria, Australia we were really low on fire wood so we pulled up at a property to ask if we could borrow some, the property ended up being a camp for school kids that was beyond amazing, they gave us a tour of the grounds which completely electricity and reception free, everything (including the buildings) was made by hand and most of the work was done by these 14-17 year old kids, without the use of power tools the all the buildings were made by hand including the hinges and what not which were all made on site. They even had there own animals and vegie patch to eat from. When school groups come on camp they do it on a 10 day program where they get dropped off and do a big hike into the actual property along the 107 trail, they than take turns at do the jobs throughout the property  and all chip in there days go a bit like, day 1 abseil, day 2 farm duties,day 3 kayaking, day 4 farm duties, until the last few days when they hike out.
The actual place is non for profit everyone who works there, works there for a full year as a volunteer which I thought was incredible

This particular photo was taken from the gate of the vegie patch, the camps name is mitta gundi!

The Forest of Tranquility - Chapter 11: Tranquility

“Just seeing you wearing nothing upon your head makes me feel uncomfortable. You’re as cold as ice.”

The taller one looked in Shion’s deep purple and lovingly smoothed down the brown fabric. This boy fitted so well with the winter forest. He looked like an ice sculpture with his pale skin and white hair. Nezumi couldn’t help but imagine him naked in the middle of the frozen lake, merging perfectly with his surroundings and the snow falling from the white sky. The only contrasts are the vibrant, red scar meandering around his body and his deep purple eyes. Beautiful.

“Your head is also uncovered, Nezumi,” Shion said, startling the other boy a bit. He chuckled slightly and wrapped Nezumi’s superfiber cloth carefully around the grey-haired. Nezumi leaned over while encircling his arms around the boy’s shoulders and kissed those cold, bluish lips gently. Shion breathed out of his nose and pressed his body against the warmer, other one tightly, kissing him back even though his lips hurt a bit.

JB Appreciation Week - Day 2: Duty 

“So many vows… they make you swear and swear. Defend the king. Obey the king. Keep his secrets. Do his bidding. Your life for his. But obey your father. Love your sister. Protect the innocent. Defend the weak. Respect the gods. Obey the laws. It’s too much. No matter what you do, you’re forsaking one vow or the other.”
