After Elsa hurt Anna, her parents sent her off on a ship to seek help. The last thing Astrid expected to find in a foreign shipwreck was a scared little girl who wants to be alone. Now she and Hiccup may be a family sooner than they anticipated.
This fanfic provides examples of:
- All Trolls Are Different: When Elsa tells Hiccup and Astrid about her history with trolls, Hiccup avoids asking if the trolls Elsa knows steal socks.
- Badass Adorable: Elsa might be a child, and be particularly 'delicate' compared to Viking children when playing, but she still has her ice abilities.
- The Cameo: Whenever Elsa has nightmares, Pitch Black from Rise of the Guardians taunts Elsa with her fears before she wakes up.
- A Girl And Her X: Elsa becomes the first person to train a Snow Wraith.
- Hates Being Touched: Elsa has an immense fear of being touched, worried that she could accidentally go off without warning and hurt someone with her magic. She slowly opens up to Astrid and Hiccup, but even still won't take off her gloves.

- Never Found the Body: Elsa is presumed dead by Arendelle's royal family, the last person from their to see her being her nanny who tried and failed to save her from the sinking ship.
- Parental Substitute: Hiccup and Astrid (although particularly Astrid} become this for Elsa.
- Power of Love: Elsa gets control of her powers through the inspiration of Hiccup and Astrid's paternal affection for her rather than Anna's sisterly love.
- Scare the Dog: Dragons are naturally very jumpy around Elsa, and this was before her big secret was revealed to the island.
- Shout-Out: It is mentioned that Elsa was to be sent to DunBroch to learn to control her powers.
- Suddenly Bilingual: Good thing that Hiccup, Astrid and their parents know Elsa's language (here referred to as "Trader's tongue").
