    Part thinking aloud, but struck by a bit of an idea for a series of one shots kind of combining the ‘HTTYD adult version’ and ‘Hiccup’s Huge Dragon’ challenges… What if instead of the fruit (possibly called Freyja’s fruit and believed to be a gift from said Vanir goddess given one of her titles was goddess of beauty?) central to the latter’s premise being found on the island of a tribe the Berkians had never met before, it was in the possession of the Bog Burglar tribe, who moved to Berk a generation or two before the tale’s events when their island revealed itself to be less than geologically stable and sank beneath the waves and then shared the fruit with their new neighbors and allies? Further what if after the defeat of of the Red Death, Toothless and Hiccup became queen and king of the Berk dragon pack by virtue of being mates, leading to several other female dragons offering themselves to Hiccup, either repeatedly in the case of relatively high ranking females such as Stormfly who would be something of a ‘beta’ to Hiccup and Toothless’ ‘alpha’ status, or just once in the case of some of the one off dragon characters strewn throughout the franchise as something of a show of submission to the leaders of the pack they wish to join. As for the reasonings for any of the human women that end up sleeping with Hiccup, I admittedly don’t have anything more complex than they think Hiccup is kind of cute, though the aspects of him becoming the town hero and being… more than adequately equip don’t hurt matters.

    Okay, though this is one of those times I can’t parse what ye meant through a(n assumed) typo, what’s a ‘tleven’?

    Okay Sounds somewhat similar to the real world fighting style called (paraphrasing, it has been a fair few moons since I read the article about it) ‘The Drunken Fist’ where the aim is to convince your opponent you are a stumbling drunken fool even as you are beating them into the ground.

    ...Okay. I stand by my initial assessment that this cartoon sounds weird.

    I take it you disagree with my statement that bloodline is just a synonym for family, and had a different definition in mind?

    Challenge discussion thread

    I understood what ye said more or less, it just sounds like a very odd cartoon. And wasn't aware we were playing some manner of game, but the first thing that comes to mind about 'bloodlines' is that it is just a synonym for family, same as kin or clan.

    Okay… though now I must ask what’s a ‘Naruto’? ...Why? My original confusion given that Santa Claus is typically depicted as a nice person stands. That is the ambition of the idea. Objection still noted, but whether they be Viggo and Ryker or Vigga and Ryka, I’m still about 50/50 on whether the Dragon Hunters (or any of the human HTTYD characters who were against the dragons) would accept defeat and join Hiccup’s domain as full citizens, with the caveat they have to make peace with the dragons, or if they would refuse, leaving Hiccup, who I’d been planning to write as less ‘hero’ or ‘villain’ than ‘businessman’, to deem the most profitable course of action slaughtering the Dragon Hunters to the last person, looting their village and claiming the territory, and feeding their carcasses to the Minions.

    Aye, spirits that are capable of taking a physical form, but are unable to leave the Tower Heart’s area of influence. Okay to the first bit, though I’d planned for Hiccup to stick with the name Hiccup, since one would assume the army of monsters at his command would serve as intimidation enough. Nope, or if I have it was many a moon ago and I forgot him. And why would someone attack Santa Claus? Aye, and to use the game ‘Rise of Berk’ as an example while there would be specialized jobs for some, like Gronkles, Hotburples, and Catastrophic Quakens making Gronkle Iron, most of them would be employed to gather fish, both as food and a source of life force, since in the first game anything bigger than a rat, could provide life force, and there are quite a number of types of fish in both fresh and salt water that would be bigger than rats. Repeated objection still noted and will be considered, though slight counter objection, given that if they were the Grimborn sisters in this story they’d get the same growth spurt as any other female in Hiccup’s domain, it would likely be hard to mistake them for male. Also I thought ramna was a type of noodle dish, and therefor am confused what it has to do with this discussion… I am aware this one wasn’t directed at me, but what is a ‘MHA’?

    Well, they wouldn't precisely be ghosts, they'd be more comparable to genies with the Tower Heart as their lamp. I have heard of the character, but since the game he is mentioned in is only available for the Wii, I cannot play it. ...I believe I missed something. What does the Spanish word for wolf and the smaller members of the cetacean family have to do with anything? I admit that given the fact the dragons in the HTTYD franchise are typically depicted as sentient/sapient, it was going to be more along the lines of dragons being citizens of Hiccup's domain, and ergo he works to protect the ones already under his banner, and recruit more when opportunities present themselves. Objection noted, and shall be considered. If I recall correctly you voiced it previously the aforementioned fair number of moons ago about the idea of Tuffnut being born a girl in this A.U, under the logic of while it is not impossible for a pair of twins to be a boy and a girl, it is decidedly less likely than two boys or two girls.

    A sound suggestion, and has several similarities to the plan I have, such as… 1- Hiccup being trained by ghosts who’ve been less than impressed with previous ‘pillage and burn’ type Overlords, only I’d planned on the ghosts being the spirits of sorceresses sacrificed to make the Tower Heart (and idea mostly inspired by the fact that in the second game you have to drain Fay of most of her magic to repair the Tower Heart), namely Maleficent, Grimhilde, Ursula, Mim, and Mirage, who take in the young Viking and decide to raise an Overlord who is loyal to them and would try to find away to free them from the Tower Heart, and if once he’s grown they get to have their mutually enjoyed way with their trainee, then they aren’t exactly complaining. 2- Hiccup being descended from a previous Overlord on Valka’s side, in my story Hiccup’s grandfather. 3- The Minions original forms being okay as raiders but less effective as actual soldiers, though my plan was less replace them than upgrade them via alchemy, and create other ‘castes’ based off them to fight in the seas and sky as well. and your mention of the Dragon Hunters is fairly apt as well since I had been planning to have Hiccup encounter them during the montage style prologue and, since he lacks the forces to wipe them out at that exact moment, hire them to catch dragons for him, as unharmed as possible, not to form an army since if the Minions or castes derived from them are killed they can be revived at the price of a little life force, which Hiccup keeps a stock pile of for just such occasions, but for the simple reason of every dragon they sell to him is one they aren’t selling to someone who would kill it. Granted the Dragon Hunters wouldn’t know what Hiccup was doing, or the fact he was plotting to wipe them out if necessary, though ideally they’d stop hunting dragons and join his domain since more citizens means more tax revenue, their opinion on the matter being along the lines of “You paid us for them, what you do with them is your problem.” I will admit I’ve toyed with the idea of Viggo and Ryker being born female in this A.U., for admittedly little more reason than the fact I’ve scrolled past many a Grimborn brother(s)/Hiccup story, a fair few Grimborn brother(s)/female Hiccup story, but no Grimborn sister(s)/Hiccup story and thought “Eh, why not be the first?”

    I don't know if I'd say its solid, but I have ideas for what I plan to have happen and an order to some of the things, but suggestions are welcome. If I recall correctly a fair number of moons ago when I first mentioned having a go of my own at the challenge you said ye had suggestions, but then never gave them due to differing sleep schedules, namely that I lean more towards being nocturnal.

    Partly just for the sake of saying, I'd been planning for Camicazi to have a role in my take on the challenge, mainly because she has a fairly substantial role in another story I'd been planning, basically the HTTYD franchise with many a 'what if' rolled into it, such as 'what if Hiccup bonded with more than one dragon?', 'what if Hiccup had siblings of both blood and bond?', 'what if Dagur was a girl?', and world building details kind of bleed over into this one, sort of making it an A.U. of an A.U. Main thing that's giving me writer's block though is the fact that, similar to the upbringing of the Overlord in the second game, I'd planned for Hiccup to get removed from Berk at a young age, making it a fairly good bet that Berk would still be at war with the dragons when Hiccup returns, and if pro dragon Hiccup is the protagonist of the story, that would make anti dragon Berk, and the other Viking tribes, the antagonists of that campaign...

    My knowledge of ‘Danny Phantom’ is admittedly limited as I’ve never watched it, but one thing I know is one of the main character’s friends is a guy named Tucker, so perhaps in the story he could be a girl (blanking of a feminine version of 'Tucker'), either from the beginning or as part of the wish, and she's part of the friends with benefits relationship from early on?

    Ginny's accidental curse, harry's harem home.

    Fair enough, in the past ye asked me for any ideas or comments that came to mind, so I gave them
  19. Jwsponky

    Ginny's accidental curse, harry's harem home.

    Okay, though one would assume that would raise significant questions ‘in story’.

    Ginny's accidental curse, harry's harem home.

    An interesting concept, but a thought occurs... What if the accident happened while Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour were dating, and Fleur, her sister Gabrielle, and mother Apoloine (Fleur’s father’s name escapes me, as well as if it was mentioned he was still among the living...) were invited to dinner? Addendum, a thought occurs… Would the potion affect the memories of people, meaning that the fact that there used to be 7 Weasley brothers and a Mr Weasley was forgotten, and if it was, would it only be forgotten by the Weasleys themselves, or those that knew them as well?

    Never heard of that, but based on the beginning of the word I am assuming it means a minotaur who’s bovine half is based upon the Holstein breed of cattle?

    Random Gravity Falls idea inspired by the idle musing ‘If there are Manotaurs, would there be Womanotaurs?’ that I mentioned to Strange Idea and he said to tell you… What if the Manotaurs never gave Dipper the test to kill the multibear, and as such he based every test and was considered an honorary Manotaur, meaning that he gets brought along when the Manotaur herd has one of it’s scheduled meet ups with the Womanotaur herd (which much like the Amazons of Greek mythology or the female bison of America (well, actually many animals spend the majority of the year in gender segregated groups, but the bison seemed the most appropriate example), keep to themselves except for the breeding season, with the young staying with their mother until the males are old enough to be weaned, then sent off to live with their fathers) and a few of the statuesque bovine women chose Dipper as the subject of their attention?

    Is no problem, and honestly was probably more along the lines of me missing you saying that it was unrelated, for which I apologize.
