A/N: I am so sorry for not updating! I’ve been kinda dead recently. With the Hunger Games completed, I turned to this story to update first. Now, onto the long-awaited update (And I do mean loooong-awaited)!
Artemis awoke to someone banging on his door.
“Arty! Stay in there! There’s a dragon attack!” It was his father. Artemis sighed. He hated feeling useless, but he and all the other Vikings knew that his superior intellect was nothing against the dragon’s superior size and power. Immersed in his musings, Artemis’ eye caught sight of something in his room. A catapult. He couldn’t throw a javelin far enough, but that could…
Artemis pushed the heavy catapult into the street and started readying it. But then a Viking ran by. Then another, and another. Soon the street was full of Vikings running to this place and that, all shouting for Artemis to get back inside. Artemis sighed. He couldn’t get a clear shot. Ignoring the Vikings, he pushed the catapult through the masses and to the edge of a deserted cliff. He set his catapult up and took aim. He noticed a black blur sailing across the sky. Artemis gasped. It was a Nightfury—said to be the unholy child of fear and death itself. A killed Nightfury would impress everyone, and more, as it had never been done before. Artemis carefully took aim and fired. The dark form suddenly plummeted out of the sky.
“Father! Father!” Artemis pounded on the heavy oak door. The door was wrenched open and Artemis almost fell in.
“What is it?” the great viking leader asked.
“I hit a Nightfury! We must assemble a search party and–”
“Ha ha ha! Shot a Nightfury, did ya? Right, with your wee little arms! Ha ha ha!” With one last hearty laugh, the chief got up and walked away. Artemis went back to his room and slumped in his bed. Had he really hit a Nightfury? Or had it been a trick of the light? Maybe the dragon just dove on its own accord and the whole thing was a coincidence. No matter how hard he tried to convince himself of this, he just couldn’t. He decided to sneak out the next morning and try to find the downed dragon.

  1. I love this movie! Good grammer, yada yada. Excellent first paragraph. I laughed so hard at the thought of Artemis as a Viking kid. A bit short, so I can’t wait to see the rest!

    *first comment dance*

  2. ENHA is a girl. I’m not a stalker!! I SWEAR!!

    I haven’t watched the movie, but I like this. CONTINUE!

    “He almost said, ‘too dead’, but changed his mind,”


  3. Artemis? a Viking?! UPDATE!!!!!

  4. Oh, wow. I love this.

    Keep updating. I hate it when people just write halfway, leave it on a cliffhanger, then abandon it.

    P.S. Don’t make me one of the bad guys!

  5. That was a tremendous update. Without the sarcasm, it was what, a paragraph!?

    For a second, I wondered who Woxp was, then I realized… it was ME.

    It is pretty funny, as I’ve said before, but I seriously need more material before I engage in a long comment.

  6. AHHHH!!! STALKER!!! Kidding. Kidding.

    Ah yes, I have finally beaten Artemis at something. Sweet victory. And yes, I am a girl. Most definitely a girl.
    Great update, but you should add more! This is just too funny. Artemis in dragon-training. That’ll be the day. 😀

  7. Heck yeah.

    See my above comment. And, really. Three feet? That would imply that Artemis can’t ever walk a few steps by himself, which he can…

  8. ilove the update and you used me!!!:):):)
    taunt meux!!!!!

  9. six feet. but i agree.

  10. You… updated… and you didn’t… *sniff, cry* TELL US! Or you did, I commented and promised that I would read it, and then I forgot, forgetful person I am.

    Anyway, I watched the movie twenty minutes ago, and this came to mind. So I reread it. It has more meaning to me now, XD.


  11. I love the idea of Artemis the Viking, virtually no mistakes detected, UPDATE OR FACE MY FOWL FARTS

    🙂 I love this!!! This is my favorite movie too!! (If you look closely, my avatar thingy is a dragon) but kinda weird to think of Artemis as a viking. Also, no Angeline because Hiccup didn’t have a mom. (Well, I think she died or something)

  13. I see… you’re kinda putting Artemis in Hiccup’s place. Most interesting. How to Train Your Dragon is now my favorite movie, courtesy of a boy who sat next to me last year and loved it.

    Short update, short update. Same Elfie, then! Didn’t spot any mistakes, actually… Update again? ^^



    Ach. Can you update again? For me? XDXDXD

    (Sorry. I don’t usually spam like this, and you very well know it.)

    (Plus, since this is an update, it doesn’t count as double-posting. *huffs*)

  15. So, How To Train Your Dragon with some AF characters? Epic. Hope there’s some unexpected AF twist.
