[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11340753/1/Fly-to-Live-Chronicle-of-an-Exiled-Viking-Boy Fly to Live: Chronicle of an Exiled Viking Boy]] by Eretsonoferet
* Recommended by: Captain Barbarossa
* Status: Ongoing
* Synopsis: What if Astrid managed to reach Berk after fleeing the cove to report his sin? Hiccup's "little vacation" with Toothless is now off to a very bumpy start. Proclaimed a traitor, he escapes in exile. This is the tale of a boy and a dragon, their struggle for survival, and their quest for a place they can call home. But what if that place was Berk all along?
* Comments: For the most part, this is just like any other 'Hiccup leaving' story, but the things it does, it does well. It does a very good job of showing how Hiccup - a boy who, as the chief's son, never really had to worry about food or a place to sleep - struggles to survive on his own. The author has stated that he will not use any huge {{time skip}}s, try to keep the story as down-to-earth as possible, (no divine interventions here) and that Hiccup will not just suddenly show up on Berk a few years later as a badass dragon rider who will single-handedly save the village. He has also done a lot of world building, including a [[http://eretsonoferet.deviantart.com/art/Full-Worldmap-546069692 detailed world map]], and it really shows just how much thought he put into this story.

** TGGeko: Thumbs up for this one. It really explores the implications the movie ended with. Everyone is very much in character it's almost scary.

''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11003087/1/Firechild Firechild]]'' by thaipothetical
* Recomended by viper5bravo, Red-Dead-Redeemer
* ''Status'': Complete, has an ongoing sequel up.
* Crossover with ''{{Game of Thrones}}''
* ''Synopsis'': To take back Berk from the dragon usurpers, alliances must be made. Khal Astrid holds six thousand soldiers in her hand, and seeks a husband of noble blood. Hiccup Firechild never meant to be her husband, let alone her love, but in the Dothraki Sea with thousands of horses and one dragon egg, perhaps they can reclaim his home and win this war.
* ''Comments'': One of the best HTTYD crossovers this troper has ever seen. This fic is rated M for a reason. There are adult situations and themes, but they are well handled and used to show character development and personality.

* ''Comments'': Fluffy fic adding depth to the romance we see on-screen between Hiccup and Astrid. A nice juxtaposition of the fast and tense pace of the movie with a slow and languid character-driven fic where teenagers just get to be teenagers. Very emotionally evocative. Enchantable sets a high bar for shipping fics in this fandom.

* ''Comments'': Funny and sweet in equal measure, with great portrayals of Astrid's family. The author is also very knowledgable about Viking customs, giving the story a comparatively real world grounding that really works. Some fairly explicit sexual stuff, but it all comes naturally from the story.

* ''Pairings'': Hiccup/Astrid, and in the sequel Ruffnut/Fishlegs
* ''Synopsis'': Hiccup's been away for six months. When he finally comes home, he's... well, maybe Astrid and Ruffnut shouldn't be blamed for their reactions. And they're not the only ones... The first story focuses on the relationship between Hiccup and Astrid, which is threatened by others who have taken a fancy to Hiccup. In the sequel Hiccup is kidnapped by people who want his dragon training knowledge for themselves.
* ''Comments'': The first fic is genuinely sweet, everyone is in character and there is quite a bit of tension behind the fluff. The second is pretty epic and more plot-focused, and features Hiccup ending up as a slave in Rome while several others from Berk set out to rescue him. There are a few M rated scenes between Astrid and Hiccup here and there in both, but they fit naturally into the story. It is clear that the author has done a fair bit of research on customs, geography and history. Both definitely worth a look.

* ''Pairings'': Hiccup x Astrid, with some Snotlout x Astrid at the beginning and Hiccup x Heather later on.
* ''Synopsis'': Astrid Hofferson's life is perfect, but then she realizes that it's not even close. And there's this dorky boy in her Norse Mythology class who she shouldn't feel so strongly about. Modern AU.
* ''Comments'': One of the very few attempts at translating the HTTYD universe into a modern setting that actually works. Also deals with themes of popularity/peer pressure, parental abuse, and more, which makes the story line pleasingly complex and gives the characters a lot of development and depth.

''Stories focused on making the series darker, and/or exploring the darker aspects of the series.''



* ''Status'': All Parts Completed.
* ''Synopsis'': Book!Hiccup (In the DragonsRidersOfBerk universe) is kidnapped by Alvin the Treacherous and interrogated; but finds it hard to hold his tongue once he's forced to drink a truth serum made from the spores of the Loki Tree. Without his stutter or self-control, it becomes impossible to keep his secrets.
* ''Comments'': I love the characterization here and imagery of this story, it's a great writer at work here. But I am most impressed by how this reinvigorates Alvin as a threatening Villain after his VillainDecay (and eventual [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]] in the DragonsRidersOfBerk Finale), just by presenting a [[RealityEnsues realistic]] portrayal of what a vicious, intelligent Outcast like Alvin is capable of. This story does get a little serious; it's not a ''dark'' story, but it's definitely '''not''' warm and fuzzy. Some people get hurt and there are realistic portrayals of kidnapping and interrogation, but if you can read that, then the story is worth it by the end.
