Hiccup runs away from Berk with Toothless (after the fight with the Nadder in the ring). Astrid never stopped him and the romantic flight never happened.
Many years later, Hiccup has built a new life for himself where his talents are appreciated and he is well-respected. He has many allies and friends, but also many enemies. He hopes to never return to Berk, but unforeseen circumstances force his hand: and he must face his past, in order to have a future.
Hiccup must find a way to protect everything he has worked so hard for, and he must decide whether save the people who once called him a "fishbone".
AN: This is my first fanfiction, I'd love your feedback- but please don't be too harsh.
