The Maiden and The Dragon by johngreeko The Maiden and The Dragon by johngreeko
I'm a big fan of ROTBTD, pretty much I've done JACKUNZEL so I decided to make a lovely piece for MERICUP.

I just watched HTTYD2 about 2 weeks ago and I got inspired in the scene when Stoick and Valka dance and sing, it's a very sweet and very cute moment where Stoick is re-living his courtship days. And that moment was very special, and BOOK this came out of my mind. Here's a little back story for you guys on how this happened;

Hiccup was searching for other places outside Berk. One day toothless and him flew out of course and ended up in a huge land area. He ended up it the area of DunBroch, they fly around and then suddenly the rain starts pouring and it's like turning into a storm. Out of nowhere a wisp showed and led them to the castle to take shelter. At first the guards was not letting him in because of the strange creature he brought with, it took them sometime to understand one another and he was then brought to them throne room for investigation. Everybody was shock for they have not seen a dragon, the Queen asks him on what he was doing in their area and what's his purpose coming to DunBroch and also about the dragon. He first told the story of how he got Toothless and then explained that they're just simple looking for neighboring lands who might have dragons and that he seeks shelter for the bitter weather. After that the Queen and King welcomed him and introduced their children; Princess Merida and Princes Harris, Hamish & Hubert.

Merida went in close for her fascination to Toothless, and then everybody had dinner for welcoming their foreigner visitor. A long chit chat from the royals and Hiccup had happened and everybody went to bed. By the morning Merida visited Hiccup and Toothless and took them with a tour around the kingdom. Hiccup was very fond on their history and culture, so he and Toothless ended up staying for a couple of days.

During this time, Queen Elinor noticed that Merida and Hiccup spends time a little bit often, in her part she's happy for she suspects romance is brewing. And hope that one day her little Princess will finally meet her Prince. One night a celebration was held let's say birthday of the King, it was a very spectacular night full of visitors and dancing. And then Merida invited Hiccup to join the dance, he hesitated but then the 3 Princes pushed him over to join the crowd and Merida and Hiccup dance. (Originally the background was the throne room but I had trouble doing it so I then change it to the mountain area near the Fire Falls). Let's presume a day after the Kings birthday Merida took Hiccup to her favorite place in the kingdom the Fire Falls area, they exchange small talks then suddenly Hiccup held his hand and ask the Princess for a dance. Not the dance from last night but a dance from Berk.

And this my friends is the scene.

I hope you like this, and leave your thought in the comment section. =D

Super cute cross-over of 2 stories that I really like. I think hiccup would be cute with merida.
But in HTTYD 2 Stoic calls Astrid his future daughter-in-law
So while Super cute your fan-fic is not cannon
And sadly will never be.

Still Adorable, nice job and good blending of worlds!
