Chapter 1

Berk- Hiccup's POV

This is Berk. We were once fighting the dragons but then… something happened. We learned that the dragons can be just as protective of us and kind towards us if we gave them the chance. Who could've changed that? Well it was me. My name is Hiccup. Once known as Hiccup the Useless but am now known as Hiccup the Dragon Trainer. I wasn't the only one that helped this change, though. My best friend, Toothless, helped beside me. Toothless isn't human, he's a dragon. A Night Fury to be exact. Berk now trains and befriends dragons. Berk protects dragons and dragons protect Berk. The times of fighting dragons are over for Berk. I just hope nothing horrible can happen along the way.

The sky was bright blue with few cloudy dots here and there. Toothless and I were flying above the forests of Berk. I smiled with the peace that almost always came with flying. At least when you're not in the middle of a battle.

"Okay Toothless, let's go," I told my Night Fury friend.

Toothless gave his dragon grin and flew as fast as he could, forcing me to hold on tight. We sped through the air. That's when we saw something strange. A vortex of yellow light swirling in the middle of the air and directly in our path.

We didn't have time to stop and change course before we went straight through it with Berk gone behind us.

Panem- Third Person

Katniss and Gale were quietly trekking through the woods. They were waiting and watching for any hunting game. They came upon one of Gale's snares which had caught a rabbit. They untied the rabbit corpse and Gale put it in his game bag.

They had to be swift. It was the day of the announcement of the 75th Hunger Games. They had to be back in time for the announcement of the game change for it. It was the third Quarter Quell meaning that the games would have new rules for this year's games.

They were just about to turn around when Katniss saw a flash of light and the sound of skidding to the left of them. She got curious and motioned Gale to follow her.

They silently walked towards the area of the light and found a clearing with deep, thin trench dug into the ground.

"What the…?" Gale said.

Katniss looked at the trench and followed its skid to a large, black creature. It had black wings and scales. Its wings in a formation around its body that told them it was protecting something underneath them.

Gale and Katniss hid behind a thick bush. They vaguely heard a light patting sound from the creature.

Its eyes shot open revealing its light, emerald green eyes and cat-like pupils. It opened up its wings to reveal a boy with auburn hair and emerald green eyes. He wore a green tunic, fur vest, brown pants, and a fur boot. His other foot a poorly made prosthetic of a metal.

The boy stood up once it was out of the creature's wings. The black creature stood up on four legs. Katniss and Gale saw a saddle with two pedals. One pedal connected to a red tail fin prosthetic.

"Are you okay, Toothless?" the boy asked. The creature, apparently named "Toothless", nodded. "Thank Thor." It looked at Hiccup and gave a look that asked, "Are you okay?" "I'm fine, Toothless." He looked at the tail fin. "Thank gods the tail fin is okay. We need to get back home. But the questions are where are we? And how are we going to get back?"

Katniss felt Gale shift behind her but it wasn't long before a branched snapped. The boy and creature's head snapping in their direction. The being sniffed the air and began to growl. It slowly crept towards them.

The boy saw their heads and began to walk over. Katniss and Gale hid further but they knew they were doomed. The boy walked over to them before the beast could. He looked at them curiously.

"Who are you?" Gale asked standing up. Katniss followed after Gale stood up.

"My name's Hiccup. This is Toothless," the boy introduced.

"What's with the names? And what is that thing?" Katniss asked.

"Where I come from, a bad name wards off bad creatures. Toothless is a Night Fury and a Night Fury is one of many types of dragons," Hiccup said.

"Dragons?" Gale asked.

"Uh, yeah. We were flying around my home island when a yellow vortex of light appeared in front of us and we went through it before we could stop," Hiccup asked.

"So you came from another place from a portal?" Katniss asked. He nodded.

"How old are you?" Gale asked.

"Seventeen," he answered.

They heard a bell sound and Katniss and Gale looked at each other.

"Gale we have to hurry back. We need to know the new rules for the Reaping this year," Katniss said.

"What's a Reaping?" Hiccup asked.

"Just over seventy-five years ago, there were thirteen districts. The districts rebelled against the Capital and the thirteenth district was reduced to rubble. Afterwards, the Hunger Games was initiated. Every year, there is a reaping. The Reaping is where they pick one male and female tribute to fight to the death in an arena in the Hunger Games. Every twenty-five years they make that year's game different with different rules. We can explain the rest on the way but you can't stay here," Gale explained. "If the Capital finds you in the woods, they'll capture you and either kill you or make you a mute Avox. So I suggest you come with us. But the dragon has to stay. If he is brought into District 12 with us, I don't want to think of what'll happen with Peacekeeper around every corner."

Hiccup nodded understanding. He turned to Toothless and said, "Toothless, you need to stay here. But stay hidden, okay?" Toothless reluctantly nodded with sad eyes. "I'll visit you soon."
