A Blinding Hope

Other / Action



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!


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.

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare.
