Was wondering if you could give a little WIP of something you're working on... or maybe something you'd like to do in the future? Thanks! :D
WOW YASSSSS I’M SO GLAD YOU SENT THIS ANON! Because, as luck has it, I just happened to write a little snippet of something that I’ve had floating around in my brain for awhile, and finally sat down to write a dramatic scene between Hiccup and Astrid.
So this is a Ghost AU snippet, who knows if I’ll finish it or not. :P I actually have the whole plot written out, just haven’t had the time to start it. But, I was in the mood to write it this morning, so… this happened…
we don’t have a choice.” Astrid stated firmly, stepping closer to him. “I know
that… well, this isn’t going to be easy and-“
it’s not that.” Hiccup’s voice stuttered as he stumbled with the words, his
arms going to wrap around his chest as he ducked his head. “Ast, I’m a ghost.”
noticed.” She teased lightly, but softened when she noticed the little waver he
made… no, she had to keep him calm. Having him get worked up and embarrassed would
be no good right now, she needed to talk to him and she couldn’t do that if he
decided to fade out on her.
not that either…” He mumbled. “Astrid, I’m a ghost. Not human- like Tom- and…”
He gave a little shudder, and she noticed the glow about his eyes and figure
was getting stronger. “Ast, if we break this curse, I’ll die.”
stared for a moment, the truth of his words slowly sinking into realization and
shock. Her jaw slackened and her eyes went wide. No… no that- that couldn’t be
she not realized it before? Unlocking the curse would mean Hiccup would return
to his true form, and him returning to his true form would mean he’d age
rapidly, seeing as how he’d been a ghost for over a hundred years.
He would die.
She whispered, but Hiccup just turned away and shuddered even more, the hazy
glow about his body growing stronger. “No… Hic…”
don’t want to…” Hiccup’s voice was cracking with every syllable, his shoulders
shaking and his head ducking even lower. “I don’t want to die…”
you- you don’t know for sure- right? I mean, there has to be something…” Her
mind refused to wrap around the idea of Hiccup leaving forever, of him not
being there, of her not having him… how would she survive?
gave a little gasp when she realized the full-blown truth. Hiccup… Hiccup was a
ghost, he would disappear as soon as the curse was lifted.
didn’t hesitate. She noticed how he was beginning to fade, how he was starting
to disappear from her sight once again. She couldn’t let him do that, to wallow
in such grief that he forced himself to bear it alone. So she stepped forward quickly,
wrapping her arms around his back and pressing her cheek against his shoulder
blades. She could feel the shiver he gave, and how his breath hitched. She
pressed harder, burying her face into against his shirt.
be alright…” She murmured.
Astrid you don’t- you don’t understand.” Hiccup stuttered wildly, his hand
coming up to tightly grip hers. “I can’t…”
know, you don’t want to die-“
Hiccup gave a sigh in exasperation, and Astrid could feel him shake as he
lowered his voice. “It’s not just death that scares me… I-I don’t-“
paused, and Astrid silently urged him on by circling her thumb over his hand.
Hiccup sighed again, before letting out in a harsh whisper:
can’t lost you… I don’t know what I’d do…”
smiled slightly, pressing closer as she rested her head against his shoulder. “I
know, and I feel the same about you, but… breaking the curse and allowing you
to be free would be better than letting you remain as a ghost and having to
stay that way- even after I die.”
He murmured. “But-“
She pulled away and ducked under his arm, facing him with stern but gentle
eyes. He wasn’t looking at her, his slightly hazy green eyes directed towards the
opposite wall. She lifted her hand and cupped her finger around his jaw,
directing it back in her direction so she could look deep into those beautiful
green irises of his- the ones she couldn’t see full force because of the glowing
haze they always carried.
just have to wait for me…” She whispered, “I’d rather spend an eternal life
time with you then only eighty years together, knowing that when I die you’ll
be left behind alone.”
would be worth it.” He whispered back, giving another shudder. “I can’t do- I
can’t do any of this without you. I don’t want to do any of this-that… without
you there with me.”
lifted both hands to cheeks, letting her thumb gently rub against his soft
freckled skin… again, the skin that she couldn’t see clearly because of the
slight glow. But it was still visible, and she could see the freckles, letting
her fingers rest against them as she mentally counted the larger ones visible.
be there soon enough. A couple decades isn’t too long…” She smiled and leaned
closer, burying her face against his neck. “I-I don’t want to do this without
you either… living out my life without you in it is going to be very dull, but-“
she glanced up into his face. “it’ll be worth it if you’re free.”
He choked, the sound of harsh sobs escaping him as his shoulders shook violently.
you too.” She whispered, pressing her lips against his jaw. He sobbed harder,
wrapping both arms about her and pulling her close.
There’s more to this, but that part I haven’t gotten typed up or edited, so… heh, you just get this beginning half of the snippet. :D
I feel like Reylo is taken over my life even more since the teaser. I couldn't sleep last night so I googled the definition for "humanity" and the first synonym that popped up was "compassion" and I kinda squealed :D
YASSSSS!!!! And let me go ahead and quote Gramps….
“Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is central to a Jedi’s life, so you might say we’re encouraged to love.”
I was cuddling with my S/O and suddenly he pushed me down and said "you're my cute little bunny" and nibbled on my ear and continued to do that while saying other things like "tell me who owns you" and "you're all mine" and I D I E D 😩😩😩😩
