you'll find me in the forest

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm glad to see you're writing again :) I have a request which I hope you'll find inspirational enough - Astrid has to carry Hiccup piggyback-style all the way back to the Edge after he made some stupid accident with the flying suit and crash landed in the forest... I always love a torn-between-worry-and-wanting-to-beat-the-shit-out-of-Hiccup Astrid :)

She had been scouting the perimeter of the island on Stormfly when it happened–when Astrid reached a peak level of “oh my gods, I’m so worried,” and “oh my gods, I’m going to kill him before anything else can finish him off first, just so I don’t have to worry about any other potentially fatal threats.”

As soon as the all-too familiar sound of Toothless’ plasma blast pierced the air and echoed in her ears, Astrid snapped her gaze towards it source. From the middle of the island’s dense forests in the distance, a purplish-blue concentrated flame shot straight up into the sky, then erupted with somewhat visible clouds of gray rippling outwards in smokey rings from where it exploded.

A distress signal.

Odin, help them all.

But especially Hiccup.
