Happy reading!

Weeks after the Grimborn brothers’ death, the dragon riders were living peaceful days on Berk. They didn’t leave the Dragon’s Edge with pleasure, far from it, but the erupting volcano had not left them the choice. So it was more with regret that the gang was forced to leave their outpost where they have been through so much.

“Okay gang, take all you can save before the lava comes to your huts!” Hiccup ordered.

It was too late, the Edge was condemned. The Baby Eruptodon couldn’t have held back what was coming anyway. The situation was under control.

The dragon riders had rushed inside their respective huts to get their personal effects. Snotlout was trying to pick up his ‘S’, the twins were wallowing on the boar pit while Fishlegs handled the collection of most books and maps containing Dragon Eye’s information. As to Astrid, she moved to take the weapons she left in her hut.

And then there was Hiccup. The young boy had made his way to the Clubhouse to meditate, closely followed by Toothless. He examined the place, and then sighed. The night fury approached his friend and rubbed him in an affectionate embrace. He uttered a plaintive cooing. The auburn-haired boy stooped to his level by stroking his head.

“I’ll miss this place too, Bud.”

He bounced back and then he moved to the table where the dragon riders and him used to meet up. Hiccup recalled with nostalgia the crazy talks the gang shared, Heather’s great food and Tuffnut’s compliments on it. But he also reminded himself of the gravest moments when the teenagers’ mutual aid reached its peak like after the ‘Viggo fiasco’ for example. This place was full of memories. It was really a part of their life that came down on this island.

An important part.

The young man was now in front of the stables. A smile came to his face at the sight of it. That was where he and Astrid kissed for the first time as a couple. It was in this place that they finally confessed their true feelings for each other. It took time but Astrid’s blindness pushed Hiccup to step outside his comfort zone. Thankfully, her state was temporary.

“Are you okay?” asked a voice behind him while placing a hand on his shoulder.

He turned back, it was Astrid, of course. He gave her a smile he wanted reassuring.

“Just trying to remember the great moments we’ve spent here all together…” he admitted in a sigh.

The night fury rubbed him affectionately. His friend petted his head while smiling.

“It’s true that we had a lot of memories here,” Astrid agreed, taking Hiccup’s hand.

So the teenager moved in front of her and took her hands in turn. Their faces approached until their lips found themselves at only few centimetres from each other as their foreheads touched. They closed their eyes and both smiled before exchanging a tender kiss.

After that, they definitively left the Edge.

Hunting gone wrong(Gaston x Reader)

Originally posted by evansluke

 Gaston readied his rifle and put the saddle to his horse humming a tune to himself.

He was in a specially radiant mood today, why you may ask? Because he went hunting with you, his best friend and secret crush.

You go once a month hunting with him, and he has teached ever thing he knows, making you a great huntress. The friendship but, comes from many years before, in fact when you were both little.

~10 years before~

Gaston was walking along with his little wooden horse, when a bunch of little kids approached him with malicious looks.

“What’s this Gaston? A new toy?” One of the kids, Jean, asked.

Gaston instinctively clutched the toy between his arms, ready to protect it. He began to back away, but Jean was having none of it.

He approached Gaston and pushed him strong enough for Gaston to drop the toy.

Tears began to form in his eyes as he watched how Jean and his friends stole him his toy.

What he didn’t expect was the baker’s daughter to make an appearance.

You had been watching from your family’s shop, and got angry for the attitude of Jean. He was a bully, almost always towards Gaston.

It was about time someone put him in his place.

You opened your door and made your way to Jean.

“Hey Jean! Give it back to him!” You shouted, furrowing your brows.

“Or what”

You had not thought about that. Well, time to improvise.

“Or…I’ll tell your mum!” At this, Jean and the others just laughed at you and approached you.

You curled your fists and prepared for anything.

Jean started to push you multiple times, while the others just laughed.

They made your trip and fall into the mud. But you were not going to be so easily defeated.

You rose yourself and attacked Jean, pushing him to the mud.

“I’m tired of you and your friends attacking Gaston” You grunted.

They just shivered and ran away, dropping the horse.

You caught it and went to Gaston.

“Gastoon!“You shouted, running at him.

He smiled, but his smile dropped when he saw how you were ” Hey (Y/N), are you okay?“

You explained to him all the story, and when the story ended, he was almost crying.

“I’m sorry (Y/N), I’m just stupid…”

“Shh, I wanted to help you, it’s what friends do, right? You smiled with your missing tooth.

~End of flashback~

“Bonjour Gaston, ready to hunt some boars?” You smirked, looking down at him from your horse.

“Of course, but know that I’m better” Gaston replied proudly.

“Of course hun, whatever you say”.

You mounted your horses and made your way ,in a comfortable silence, to the deep forest on the outskirts of Villeneuve.

When you had arrived, you dismounted the horses and followed a dirt path to a clearing.

“It’s been a while huh?Bet you don’t remember anything” Gaston said smug. He wanted to break the ice and, although he sounded cocky, inside he was really nervous, although he had a reason to be like this, he didn’t know how to ask you out.

“Yeah, I really forgot how good it is to hear you rambling on how great you are” you replied sarcastically.

Gaston chuckled and propped down to a nearby bush. He made you a sign to make silence.

As you looked in the direction of Gaston’s eyes, you  saw a rather big boar grunting while eating some chestnuts.

“Oi, Gaston, don’t you think it looks menacing, as if ready to attack?” You asked him.

Since you had arrived, the boar had been turning and spinning in circles and smelling the air, probably our scent.

“What do you mean? I see it as a prey” Gaston said, readying his riffle.

“I mean, basing in my knowledge, it will pound on us any…”


Gaston had fired his riffle and had not touched the boar. It grunted and started to run towards us.

“…minute…God damn it Gaston! You shouted, firing your riffle.

It pierced the boar’s head and it fell to the floor dead.

“Good job (Y/N), you are almost as good as me”

“Almost? Don’t you think I’m better? At least I got the boar”

“But I saw it” Gaston replied, going to get the boar

“You always wanting to take the prize”

Gaston went to retrieve the boar, until a large paw posed on it from behind the tree.His head shot up as a large grizzly bear made his appearance.

Gaston readied his riffle, but the bear kicked him hard enough to drop it far. With a growl, it started to attack Gaston, until one of his paws made contact with his chest, destroying his characteristic red shirt and sposing flesh. He hissed in pain and fell down, blood pouring from your chest.

“Gaston!” You snapped out of your trance. Since the bear’s entrance, you had been petrified.

You readied your riffle and shot through the bear’s heart. It fell flat on the floor, a pond of blood around him.

“Serves you right” You grunted, while adjusting your ponytail.

You looked at Gaston and your blood ran cold. He was on the floor, unconscious and losing a lot of blood.

“Please Gaston, don’t die” You said, getting him up your horse. You mounted behind him and caught his waist so that he didn’t fall off from it.

When you arrived to Villeneuve, you went to find Lefou, not before saying “Just a little more time, Gaston”.

You went running and shouting like a mad man trying to find Lefou. When he came out of the tabern, you ran to him, shaking his shoulders.

“Hey! hey! hey! What’s the problem (Y/N)? Where’s Gaston?” He looked at you quizzically.

You sighed, with your lower lip trembling, and looked at him straight in the eye.

“Gaston…Bear…Wounded…Will die” You weren’t able to form actual sentences, you were too worried about him to care.

Before Lefou could ask, you pulled him by the hand to your horse.

“Here, help me carry him home” You told him, holding Gaston from one of his shoulders.

Gaston was totally unconscious by now, and he was quite heavy to carry. When you arrived to yor house, you lied him in your bed.

“Go get some water and bandages…Oh, and some alcohol!” You asked Lefou as you began to rip what was left of his shirt.

There was a big cut that went from the shoulder blade to his stomach, and it was bleeding profusely. That was the main problem, although there were another minor cuts that needed assistance.

After Lefou came back, you used the water to wipe away the blood, and the alcohol to prevent it from infecting. You reached for the bandages and began to cover all the cuts.

As you passed his abs, you couldn’t help but think about how toned they were.

“That’s not the moment (Y/N), geez” You whispered to yourself and mentally slapped yourself.

“There we go…” You said, cutting what you didn’t need of the bandages.

“Do you want me to move him to his house?” Lefou asked, pacing around.

You smiled at how worried he was about his friend.

“No, no. He’ll stay here. Look how peaceful he looks” You answered while looking at Gaston’s sleeping form"Then I’ll leave it in your hands, (Y/N), take care of him” Lefou took his leave.

You sat in your bed, and tucked behind Gaston’s ear a strand of hair out of place. Then, you kissed his head and his cheek.

Lefou, that had forgotten his hat, returned to enter, only to find this heartwarming scene.

He coughed and you jumped far from the bed” I had forgotten the hat, and by the way…He likes you too”.

He left you there, dumbfounded and with confused feelings. You had never thought about Gaston being something else than a friend, but your feelings were getting stronger for the hunter, you just didn’t know it yet.

The Mad Kings: The Old Lion IV


The private dining room in the upper floors of the Red Keep brought back many memories. He had been a cupbearer in King Aegon V’s court, a trusted friend of the prince during Jaehaerys II’s rule, and the Hand of the King once Aerys II took the throne. He had watched Rhaegar go from a babe in his mother’s arms to a man grown, had followed Rhaella’s many lost pregnancies, and had seen Viserys as a toddler, all in this room.

Tywin was no longer a guest of the king, an outsider privileged to see into the private lives of the royal family. This was his family, Cersei fawning over her son, Joffrey whinging at the slightest provocation, and Margaery Tyrell the most composed of all of them, tucked into her chair in hopes of being overlooked. Tywin had seated himself at the head of the table, torn between delight that Tyrion was not present to drink himself senseless, and discontent that Jaime was missing as well. It had taken him seventeen years to get his heir back; he had not intended to send him away so soon.

Although he rarely overate, Tywin found himself taking a second portion of the boar ribs while he entertained conversation with the queen. The girl is all of seventeen, three years older than her husband and far sweeter. Tywin had never wanted a tame king, but of late he thought he would sooner his father be king than his grandson. At least Tytos would listen to reason or allow himself to be sidestepped, Joffrey seemed determined to put himself in the center of everything and listen to no one.

“When is the prince due?”

“In five months, Lord Tywin,” she smiled at him, glowing as she lay a hand over her stomach, “I pray to the gods daily for a son with his father’s eyes.”

“Ah, grandfather, have I told you?” Joffrey had been gossiping with his mother, but the boy turned with a prideful grin. “I have chosen a name for my son. He will be called Gerold, after the Lannister kings of old.”

“It is a fine name,” Cersei cooed over the boy, but the name gives Tywin pause.

“Gerold is a Westerlands name, I had thought you meant to name the boy after your father’s house. Steffon, perhaps,” Tywin had heard enough rumors about his elder children for a lifetime, he needed no reason for the smallfolk to whisper more.  

“Steffon is hardly a name for a king,” Joffrey sneered, “my father was a stupid, vicious man. He did not deserve to be a king, and he does not deserve for my son to carry his father’s name.”

Chapter Nineteen


Venus Crystal Power, Make Up

Description: The third command that Minako Aino used to transform into Super Sailor Venus.

User: Minako Aino
First Appearance: Episode 154
Last Appearance: Episode 196
Type: Light-based attack
Upgrade: None
Item Required: Crystal Change Rod


  1. This is the last transformation sequence Minako Aino used to turn into her senshi form.
  2. In Sailor Venus’ previous transformation sequences, her hair moved away to reveal her face; however, in this transformation sequence she physically brushed her hair away from her face.
  3. After Sailor Venus’ “Super” upgrade, her back bow was enlarged and lengthened, the orange button on her front bow changed from a circle to a heart, the bottom of her shoulder pads were transparent, a golden star was attached to her choker, her earrings were the same shape but darker in color, and her collar had one white stripe.
  4. The wreath of roses that appears on Sailor Venus’ final pose background symbolizes the Greek goddess, Aphrodite (or Venus in Roman mythology). The rose is a plant that is sacred to Aphrodite and people would often give offerings of roses to her in Ancient Greece. It is said that the red rose is connected to the story of Aphrodite and Adonis. One version of the story states that Adonis was fatally wounded by a wild boar while hunting. As Aphrodite was by his side, the mixture of her tears and his blood created the blood-red rose. Another story states that Adonis was slightly wounded and Aphrodite, while running to him, scratched her foot on a rose bush. The blood that flowed from her foot stained the white flowers on the bush, creating the red rose. The golden appearance of the wreath could also be a reference to a magical golden girdle (cestus) that Aphrodite wore, making her irresistible to men.

devilishlyclever replied to your postI just came home from a dnd session and after this…

*chinhands* tell me about your dnd character

chinhands right back @ u

This is probably a character just for this oneshot because what I really want to do is DM but… due to holidays from our friends and this hell week I’ve not had my head to actually write my things up :’)

Her name is Ea, she’s a tiefling rogue with purple/pink ish skin, golden eyes and dark purple hair. She has lamb like horns and her hair is braided up to the back of her skull. She’s 45 yo so basically making her way to the middle age of a tiefling ( they live only slightly longer than humans ) and she’s an assassin from her temple :’) her background is as an acolyte and she has so many weapons on her that I cry qwihger She spent most of the game just going ‘oh my god’ meme.png at most people and trying to keep her cool. :’) It was fun :’))

anonymous asked:

I know Japanese Akitas are very independent and have a tendency to be difficult with even basic obedience, but do American Akitas have the same issue?

i believe so, yes! from what i know, which is consequentially little since i dont really like american akitas, they are a more “functional” and aggressive dog than the JA, but are just as stubborn and challenging to motivate. i do know that some AA’s are used for, i think boar hunting? while JA’s are just exclusively pets or very casual trick/sport dogs who suck at what they are performing! a notable difference of concern i know of is that while both types are prone to dog aggression, AA’s are way bigger and stronger and can be far harder to handle than their smaller cousins.

bcrserker-killer liked your post “Starter call~ Like this post if you want me to do a (simple) starter…”

Alone in the forest near the outskirts of the town was the fallen beast making his own meal. Killing that wild boar a while ago was not an easy task for him but at least he got some meat to cook. Whatever ingredients he used on his cooking, they made it so mouthwatering just by its smell.

But wait, someone’s coming. Feline ears twitched as the mercenary heard those sounds while his nose tried to pick up the scent of whoever’s approaching on his way. Who and what could that be anyway?
