    Summary

    "As he studied the drawing she had given him, he slowly began to let himself believe that she was real and alive and well. He had thought about Arya so many times that the memory of her was worn in his mind. Fragile and faded, like a piece of parchment that had been read too many times. To tell the truth, sometimes, he couldn’t even remember what she looked like, only that she was the only thing he ever wanted, ever wished for."

    Season 8 companion piece. Chapters will be posted as episodes air.

    Summary

    Of course, she wasn’t unreasonable in her frustrations; Astrid ultimately managed to come up with some answers to her own questions. The biggest was the fact that Valka was an ally of dragons -- and as far as she knew, Berk still wanted to kill each and every single one that they came across. How could she come back, riding a dragon, to a people that wanted to murder them? And it wasn’t like Astrid was claiming that Valka didn’t miss her husband and her son. At first, a righteous side of her almost felt angry about the fact that she didn’t miss them enough to come back, but…

    If Valka's love for dragons was anything like Hiccup’s, then it made sense that she stayed away.

    What Astrid didn’t understand was why she was staying away from her.

    [tumblr request; my take on the nature and establishment of Astrid and Valka's relationship post-HTTYD 2. Valka is evasive; Astrid is frustrated and wants answers. The more she thinks, the more she understands.]

    Summary

    She closes her eyes and there he is.

    Six and ten, crossing his arms over his ridiculously broad chest and looking at her like she isn't some highborn lady, just a silly girl that surely can't know the directions North better than he can. But she does, and then he's standing outside the gates of Winterfell again, twenty and two and calling her name; cursing her later when they're beside that stupid lake and justice really does deliver.

    When his breath is hot against her, and everything is so perfect for at least this once as he's inside her for the first time and lust bedfellows his greed with the sins he's committing in the name of hope and her, and yes, yes, right there, his weight atop her, his kiss pressing to her lips.

    As it's just them, and he isn't telling her to walk away, isn't telling her to never leave him again.

    Her eyes are closed, and she's seeing everything in the flesh all over again, and oh, gods.
