Hitchups: “How To Train Your Dragon” AU where Hiccup doesn’t go after Astrid and runs away when he says he will. Incredible world building and super long. I keep meaning to go back and reread the whole thing over, start to finish.
To Wait A Lifetime: HTTYD oneshot, Hiccup and Toothless’ friendship is the most important thing in my life. I cry every damn time.
The Problem With Zuko: Incredible “Avatar: The Last Airbender” AU that I keep coming back to. Great canon divergence, long but tight oneshot, and fantastic characterization. Win all around.
A World Entirely Our Own: heartbreaking Harry Potter AU, great introspection on the Potters, and Dursleys. Latter might be a bit ooc but honestly the fic makes it work, and makes me cry, every time.
Umbreytingu:(HTTYD) Toothless gets turned into a human, there’s brotherly love, and shenanigans and tears ensue.
Ad Initium:(PJO) Read it a long time ago, but AU where Thalia never turns into a tree, and I love pain
There are so many other HP, ATLA, and HTTYD fics that could have been here, but these are the ones that really stood out. Scrolling through my FFN favourites list was a blast to the past, I’ll say that much. Thanks for asking, nonnie :3 happy reading!
You heard the front door to the house you and your boyfriend Snotlout shared open with an annoyed creak and slam closed, and the annoyed sigh that followed let you know that Snotlout was not very happy. Trotting down the wooden steps, you met him in the front room and saw his tired expression.
“Aw, sweetheart,” you cooed softly, “What’s wrong?”
Snotlout dropped his bag on the floor and stomped over to you, laying his head on your shoulder. “Tired,” he mumbled into your fur collar, then raised his head a bit and sniffed, the hairs having tickled his nose.
You giggled and lifted a hand to stroke his cheek. “Oh, you poor thing. You wanna lie down?”
You could tell Snotlout was enjoying the attention; he may have been exhausted, but there was no way he was going to stop being tired for a while now. He nodded and grunted a ‘yes’, so you took his hand and led him up the stairs to your bed.
Snotlout practically tossed himself onto the goose feather mattress, making you giggle and follow his lead. You carefully removed his helmet and set it on your nightstand, then immediately went to fixing his helmet hair. He hummed in content and wormed his way over to wrap his arms around you. A grin split your face in two, and you held him close to you.
“I love you,” Snotlout murmured against your chest, and you laughed silently, feeling his face heat up.
