    Summary

    Demons cannot fly. The ability, like so many other things, was ripped away from them during the Fall, pulled out of them by the Archangel Michael herself.

    Crowley still dreams of flying, misses the rush of the wind in his wings, the feeling of freedom that comes from soaring through the sky or through space. A thing he admitted in a moment of weakness, drunk in the bookshop backroom back in the 19th century. He still regrets that show of weakness.

    This is a story about learning to fly and learning to heal, about choosing one’s fate and one’s side. And, maybe most of all, a story about how the love we want is the love that we deserve after all.

    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.
