Go To

Hiccup, a mortal man, has become a god. And the king of the heaven's himself has given him a special task. Teach the younger goddesses what it mean to love. And then marry one.

For the Love of the Gods is a Fusion Fic Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons fanfic written by fanfic writer cjupsher (also known for his superhero-based series and Star Wars series).

This series provides examples of:

  • Always with You: In Chapter 9, it is said that Hiccup would sometimes "visit" his parents and mentor Gobber and look out for them.
  • Advertisement:
  • Amusing Injuries: To showcase Hiccup's immortality to him, Rapunzel pushes him off of a cliff, only to wind up completely fine after hitting the ground.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: After Merida explains how she was a deer that was adopted and given deity status by Elinor, Hiccup asks why, of all things, Merida has red hair.
  • Based on a Dream: In-Universe. Hiccup builds himself a bed because he gets most of his best ideas from dreams. That and he misses sleeping.
  • Chocolate of Romance: Anna loves chocolate, especially when it is served as an offering to her on Lover's Day.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Hiccup was once an average village blacksmith who dies saving a child from a runaway cart. For his selfless deed, he is promoted to the rank of Forge God.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: After Merida naps in her new hamoc that Hiccup made for her, she ends up having a dream of a mortal man she doesn't recognize.

  • Fictional Holiday: Lover's Day, a festival meant to honor Anna and celebrate love. Oddly enough, there is a Lover's Day, but the odds of a goddess involved with it is unlikely.
  • Gay Moment: Rapunzel passively mentions that she tried kissing Merida once to see why people like kissing so much, only to get slapped in the face for her troubles.
    Rapunzel: I like kissing. I always wondered why mortals did it. It always seemed weird. I always wanted to give it a try. I tried to kiss Merida once...[i]t didn't go well...
  • God Job: Having been given the title of God of the Forge, Hiccup spends his time making weapons and jewelry. He is later told that as the God of Blacksmithing, he is supposed to inspire other smiths, answer prayers and forge weapons for great heroes of legend. Another day in the life.
  • Harem Genre

  • Humanity Ensues: Or rather "Deity Ensues". The common story behind Merida's origins (in both folklore and Merida herself) is that she was originally an orphaned, baby deer who - after being found by Elinor - was turned into a goddess out of Elinor's desire for a child. Foreshadowing however strongly hints otherwise.
  • Kill the God: Only gods and god-made things can harm and/or kill gods.
  • Kissing Under the Influence: After Tink becomes drunk for the first time, she then proceeds to kiss him out of nowhere and then suck him off before falling asleep.
  • Making Love in All the Wrong Places: On Lover's Day, Hiccup and Anna have sex in the back of Anna's temple. No worry for getting caught, since they are essentially invisible.
  • Mama Bear: Elinor makes it very clear to Hiccup; Merida. Is. Off. Limits.
  • Mature Rating: For sexual content.
  • The Needless: Gods do not need food or sleep like mortals do. That is not to say that they don't enjoy either when they can.
  • Nerds Are Virgins: Hiccup was a virgin when he died. He is also the nerdiest character there.
  • Not Staying for Breakfast: The morning after Hiccup and Rapunzel have their first, Rapunzel needed to leave shortly after they both wake up so she could raise the sun, as is her job.
  • Oh My Gods!: Having only become a god recently, Hiccup still has the habit of "thank[ing] the gods" or shouting "oh dear gods" when surprised, something that really seems to amuse the others.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Dragons are established as being an ancient, magical creature, having existed for as long as fairies and gods and are one of the few things capable of harming a god. Because of this, gods generally avoid them.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Tinker Bell willingly puts herself into Hiccup's service, having skills in smithing and crafting herself.
  • Rich Boredom: Godhood loses its charm rather quickly for Hiccup when you can do whatever you want whenever you want to.
    "Ok... so my first... decree as God of the Forge will be... to..." he trailed off as he tried to think of a task for her. He suddenly got an idea.
    "Take this to Rapunzel," he said as he pulled out the necklace. The fairy smiled and shot up before taking hold of it.
    "Yes sir," she said heartily before shooting off, leaving a trail of glittering dust behind her.
    Hiccup watched her go, once again alone. He looked around. "Now what I do?"
    Immortality was already starting to lose its novelty.
  • Stock Gods: As expected from a story centered around a pantheon.
  • Their First Time: Chapter 4 for Hiccup and Rapunzel. Chapter 5 for Anna. Chapter 10 for Elsa.
  • Virginity Makes You Stupid: The various goddesses seem baffled by the idea of sex, kissing, intimacy and thus come across as a tad inept socially, despite having hundreds of years of free time over it.
  • Waterfall Shower: Hiccup finds Rapunzel bathing in a waterfall in the Realm of the Gods, where they end up doing it.
  • The Wiki Rule: Contents can be found on Cjupsher Wiki.
  • Woman Scorned: North warns Hiccup in his mission that even goddesses can get petty and volatile when their feelings are maneuvered in such a way. Given that they can control the very forces of nature and the subconscious, one careless mistake on Hiccup's part can lead to catastrophe! A foreshadowing of this is seen in Chapter 6. Hiccup finds Rapunzel and asks her where he can find Merida. Her momentary twinge of jealousy causes the sun's rays to intensify enough to make even Hiccup sweat. Really says something, since he essentially lives in a volcano lair forging divine weaponry all day.
