    Summary

    Dáin son of Náin, Lord of the Iron Hills, called 'Ironfoot' by many and 'unreasonable' quite often (especially by one sour Wizard) was unwilling to sacrifice his own subjects on the off chance that his cousin could sneak a particularly pretty stone from under a dragon's snout.

    He was, however, more than willing to sacrifice himself. That's just who he was. And family was family after all. Even if they thought one rock could sway the Six other Houses of the Dwarves.

    That was obviously bloody mad.

    But, Dáin thought as he and Thorin crossed the same bridge in the same quiet corner of the Shire for the upteenth time, I've never much minded being called bloody mad before.

     

    Aka an AU set in the canon universe where Dáin Ironfoot joins the Company of Thorin Oakenshield to reclaim Erebor.

    Summary

    Take History. Add Dragons. Stir until a Genius makes friends with them and things explode. Take the resulting stock of Hiccup and tamed dragons and set it to simmering in 1040 AD, in the Scottish Hebrides. Add more Kings, Emperors, Romans, Vikings, Conquerors, Spies, Warriors, Thieves, Knights and Nobles, to taste. Take cover, and sit back to watch the fireworks.

    In Real Life, 1040 was the tail end of the Viking Age; Europe was 50 years from the First Crusade; the Catholic and Greek Orthodox Churches have not yet formally split, William the Conqueror is a frightened teenager in Normandy, the Byzantine Empire is collapsing after a revival under one of their great emperors, and the great Viking Harald Hardrada is a Varangian mercenary there, while the Caliphates are having a rough time from the new Seljuk Empire and their own internal tensions. The most corrupt Pope in history holds Rome, the Reconquista of Spain is underway after the collapse of the Caliphate of Cordoba, and the Norse religion is a pale shadow of what it once was, hanging on around the Baltic Sea, Iceland, Greenland... and the Hebrides.

    And into that heady mix, there is now Hiccup and Berk.

    Yeah, history won't know what hit it.
