    Summary

    There are dragons in Castle DunBroch and the king and his family have fled. King Fergus may have an answer, but it means finding someone he hasn't seen in years, the Chief of the Hairy Hooligan tribe.

    Meanwhile, Hiccup and the Dragon Riders have returned to Berk and are living their lives. Astrid and Hiccup are being hounded about their engagement, while Fishlegs and Snotlout are fighting over Ruffnut. Hiccup's ready to go anywhere with Astrid where no one is asking about wedding preperations, so a letter from DunBroch might just be a blessing from Thor himself. Or, possibly Loki. Either way, he and his girlfriend can finally get some alone time, right? Right?

    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.
