We may be a little broken Ch. 7Walking through the not-triangled-shaped forest was a draining experience on its own and they just knew that, if they hadn’t had each other, they would have given up a long time ago. But there was Merida and there was Rapunzel, and neither left their loved ones to fend on their own.We may be a little broken Ch. 7 by infamousdream
They walked hand in hand and did their best not to trip. They talked just to fill the silence and retold anecdotes they already knew (they had been together for most of them, it didn’t matter. What mattered was to not let those dear voices they had almost forgotten come back. What mattered was to not stop moving and find those useless boys once and for all).
Merida was worried about Rapunzel and kept looking over her shoulder to make sure the blonde was there. She didn’t realize it, but she was trembling.
But Rapunzel did notice, and although she was tired (so, so tired) after being attacked and drained and triggered, she kept talking. She kept talking because she knew that Merida was scar
We may be a little broken Ch. 6The sun was going down and Jack had to admit that Hiccup had been right: it was a charming view of the sunset.We may be a little broken Ch. 6 by infamousdream
They had spent the time talking about nothing and everything, stepping on invisible (metaphorical) landmines that they did their best to ignore so they could not break apart now, now that they were so close and all they needed was for the girls to come back and...
… speaking of which…
“Did you see where the girls went?”
“… the forest?” the boys looked at each. Their latest experiences in forests hadn’t been good.
Toothless bounced and came to a stop next to Hiccup. Both them and Jack launched into the air and soon they could be heard calling for the girls, their voices penetrating a forest that had almost forgotten how human voices sounded like.
The girls heard them —or thought they heard them—, and trudged through the forest calling out, wondering why the trees were no longer triangle-shaped and why they could hear t
We may be a little broken Ch. 5After their spur-of-the-moment decision to just… fly over to the small island as fast as they could, they realized that going face-to-face against whatever was endangering the children of the world this time was not a good idea. At least not at the moment, with the girls still shaken up from the last attack and everyone just tired. Really tired.We may be a little broken Ch. 5 by infamousdream
While Rapunzel tried to calm Merida down, assuring her that the first times she flew she had been terrified as well, Jack watched Toothless sniff around the rocks. He could swear the dragon seemed nostalgic-melancholic-sad (he really couldn’t just pick one word for that expression) as he bumped against a couple rocks —ruins?— and stared off into the forest (full of those triangle-shaped trees, Jack guessed it snowed a lot around here; he didn’t particularly remember this island, though). The winter spirit went to crouch next to Hiccup, who had taken seat on an obviously shaped-by-man rock.
Even in such a human posi
We may be a little broken Ch. 4Rapunzel couldn’t care less about the kids not seeing Hiccup. At the moment, she was having trouble even caring about finding Pitch. She just felt hopeless.We may be a little broken Ch. 4 by infamousdream
Her hair was weighing her down and even her frying pan was heavy in her hand: she was alone-sad-sad-sad. She half-heartedly looked around and tried to smile at the kids that stared at her. She was scared of herself and her lack of caring —that wasn’t her—, but she couldn’t even bring herself to care enough about that. She wanted to be next to Merida and her pure strength, but she didn’t want to put that burden on her best friend, either.
Merida had always cared for her. When Rapunzel was barely fifty and still struggling with the whole spirit business, Merida had taken her under her wing with a smile and a hug. She pushed her to leave Corona and see the world, to meet her believers and have fun with the kids. She had helped her. Rapunzel needed to return the favor, and if the way to
