A Blinding Hope

By Bri Cannistraro

Other / Action

Prologue

A/N: I DO NOT OWN ANY OF YU GI OH 5DS OR HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON! ALL RIGHTS OF BOTH FRANCHISES GO TO THE OWNERS! THE ONLY THING I OWN ARE THE OCS (VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF OCS)!

Also, fair warning, a lot of the characters might/will be extremely OOC because I was trying to go by the How to Train Your Dragon movie but also have the characters in it. So I'm so sorry if all of them are seriously OOC, I didn't mean for it to happen, it kind of just did. Anyway, I hope you can look passed that and enjoy the story.

Thanks for reading!

Prologue

There is no light without darkness. There is no darkness without light. That is the one thing everyone in the village of New Domino knows. They had ever since the explosion that split the world's lands into separate islands and unleashed the worldwide war between humans and the once slumbering dragons.

Yet, one of the first elders of New Domino spoke of a hope that would come in time. A hope that would end the war.

But time went on slowly. As the months turned to years and the years turned to centuries, people began to lose their hope in the foretold peace bringer.

Now, three hundred years after the elder's words, one boy was born who still believe peace was possible. By the time the boy was five, he wanted peace. But with the war so ingrained and the fire burning so large, the people of the world had started to change to killing the dragons.

At a young age, the boy was revealed to be smart and reliable. So it came as no surprise to the boy that when he began to try to convince people to try to end the war themselves, they were confused and pushed him away into isolation.

But when he turned six, his parents were killed by a Monstrous Nightmare in front of his eyes. The villagers thought that would make the boy turn to their ways of killing. But it didn't. It only made the boy want to end the violence that much more.

The boy was quickly taken in by an orphan caretaker named Martha who already had many orphans in her care. But the boy never told anyone in New Domino his gift. Not Martha or any of the orphans. Or even his parents who had died just after discovering his ability.

It was this gift that made the boy strive for peace. And as the boy learned more about the elder's words, he began to believe there was truly one who was to bring peace between humans and dragons.

And the thing he hoped most: That they would come and end the killing and senseless violence before the world was obliterated by war.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

Faye Paul: Rachel Sikkema engages me as she opens wide a window into the troubled soul of Danny; a young man living on the edge of life with whom I truly connect throughout this story of his journey. I sit on the edge of my seat, willing him in his choices, as he navigates the life and death chessboard of d...

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story.
