Added DiffLines:

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Snotlout wanted to be chief and the people of Berk wanted an heir that exemplified good old viking machismo. Unfortunately, Snotlout had no idea how boring and hard it would be to be the next chief and the people of Berk don't like the fact that their future chief is a self-righteous idiot, the current Chief and Elders having little to no faith in him.


Added DiffLines:

* EmbarrassingTattoo: During their drunken bender on Trader's Isle, Hiccup and Katla end up getting tattoos on their backs.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulRename: When Hiccup leaves Berk, he takes on the alias "Fjalar" (meaning "deceiver").

Hiccup couldn't deny fate; soon the Vikings of Berk would discover Toothless- his best and only friend. With careful preparation, he fakes his own death and leaves Berk, with no intention of ever returning. But even as he grows into a powerful man and meets the woman of his dreams, Hiccup knows he cannot simply forget the place of his birth. After all, he's their only hope...

!!This fanfic provides examples of:
* BestHerToBedHer: When Astrid has her prophecy read by Gothi, she states that only the one who can best her in battle will marry her. For years Astrid ([[DoesNotLikeMen who is determined to stay bachelorette at all costs]]) has defeated every person who has challenged her undefeated until [[spoiler:Hiccup]], who was trying to keep her from killing Katla over perceived disrespect, completely [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomps]] her when he ceases on the defensive.
* ChickMagnet: Hiccup ends up becoming this to the Free Folk within his first week among them. Considering he was considered less than average for most of his life, this makes Hiccup rather uncomfortable.
* FakingTheDead: While Hiccup originally left a note claiming that he ventured off to find a dragon worthy enough to be his first kill, Astrid finds black scales and a spot of Hiccup's blood in the cove and everyone assumes this means he was massacred by a Night Fury.
* GivenNameReveal: Hiccup goes by the name "Fjalar" to keep himself hidden, though he has to confess his real name at the Free Folk trial.
* RomanticFalseLead: While at first pissed at Hiccup for defeating her (see BestHerToBedHer for context), Astrid then becomes incredibly spiteful towards Katla after finding out that Hiccup is already in a relationship with her, even going so far at to challenge her to a fight for the right to be with Hiccup.
* SlaveLiberation: It is established that the Free Folk are a people descended from slave-fighters that escaped Constantinople and made a home in the Barbaric Archipelago.
