Chapter 13: The Egg Is Hatching!A Few Days Later..Chapter 13: The Egg Is Hatching! by JackFrostsGirl
It's been a couple days since Stoic the Second came into our lives. It's also been a couple days since Me, Astrid, and Stoic have moved into our new house. It has Two bedrooms and one guest room upstairs, with a living room and kitchen downstairs.
I was playing with Stoic, when Astrid called for me. I carried Stoic with me downstairs and Mom and Toothless were there too. Toothless was holding the silver dragon egg in his mouth.
Toothless put the egg down and it looked like it was about to hatch. All three of us stood around the egg. I expected it to explode like other dragon eggs, but it didn't heat up or anything. The egg cracked open and out came a silver Night Fury with purple eyes.
"So, it really was a Night Fury egg after all.." I said quitely.
The little baby dragon crawled out of the empty shell peices and crawled over to Toothless.
"Looks like Toothless is gonna be a Dad too." Astrid says.
"Yep. That he is." I sighed happily.
"Now we just need t
Chapter 12: It's Happening!Three Months Later (Astrid is 9 months pregnant)Chapter 12: It's Happening! by JackFrostsGirl
Ever since Mom found the "Night Fury" egg at the Dragon Stables, I've been taking care of it, (with Toothless's help) while tending to Astrid. The house was finally done, but I've been spending a lot more time with Astrid at my old house. She's been really demanding lately, but I didn't let it get to me because I love her so much.
Today me and Mom were flying on our dragons during our Mother/Son flying time. It's been a while since we've flown together and it was nice to go flying on Toothless again. I was a little nervous though because in a week, our baby will be born.
Me and Mom were circling around the village, when Gobber came riding up to us on Grump.
"Gobber, what're you doing here?!" I say to him.
"You both have to came now! Astrid's giving birth!" Gobber said.
"What?! How can that be?! She's not due for another week!" I tell him.
"Well, it's decided to come now."Gobber says.
"Alright, we'll be there soon!" I tell h
Chapter 11: Baby BuisnessThree Months Later (Astrid is 6 months pregnant)Chapter 11: Baby Buisness by JackFrostsGirl
Over the months that have passed by, Astrid's been having lots of weird food cravings and she's been really moody. For example, she suggested I cook her some tomatoes for breakfast and she got angry with me when I was out building the house for too long. But I still loved her no matter what.
A couple weeks ago, Mom asked us if we wanted Gothi to see if we were having a boy or a girl, but we wanted to be surprised. We also discussed baby names, but we couldn't come up with anything, so we decided to wait until he/she was born. Right now, I was on a break from our house, which we were gonna move into after the baby was born.
I was in my room while Astrid was looking at herself in the mirror. She turned around with a frustrated look on her face. She sat on the bed and groaned.
"What's wrong milady?" I ask her.
"Nothing fits me anymore! I'm getting bigger by the minute!"
I put my hand on her shoulder, "You're overreacting
Chapter 10: A Little Advice and Building a HouseHiccup's POV:Chapter 10: A Little Advice and Building a House by JackFrostsGirl
I woke up late in the morning with my arm around Astrid's body. She was still sleeping as I got out of bed. I headed downstairs and Mom walked up to me.
"Mornin' Hiccup. Do you have a minute?"
"Yeah, sure.." I said a little groggly.
Mom sat me down and said, "Hiccup.. since you and Astrid are officialy married and you're both going to have a baby soon, I need to tell you what you should expect during Astrid's pregnancy."
"Ok." I said, fully awake and a little nervous.
"Well, first off, Astrid's going to be a little moody pretty soon. Have you noticed Astrid on her period?"
"Well, it's like that, but 10x worse."
"Also, Astrid's going to have weird food cravings. And I think that's it, but if there's anything I forgot, I'll tell you."
"Ok then.." I said really nervous.
I heard Astrid coming down the stairs. I looked at her and smiled.
"Good morning my beautiful wife." I said as she was on the last step of the stairs.
She smiled and kissed me on the che
Cyber bullying is, without question, a growing problem in today's social networking society, and quite literally, a silent killer. It is our feeling, as deviants, that more action should be taken by the DeviantART staff to prevent this.
According to DeviantART's etiquette, cyber bullying would fall under “discouraged commentary”, being known as having “the potential to escalate into an aggressive or abusive situation...we discourage public accusations and other similar situations.” It is clear that the DeviantART staff does work to keep the peace on DeviantART, and make it a positive experience for all of it's users. They discourage harassment and exploitation of other users and heated public disputes and encourage users to report acts of such nature; however, discouraging is still tolerating, and we do not believe that bullying should be tolerated on DeviantART.
It is important to understand, however, that cyber bullying does not include things such as a mutual argument between two or more people. Cyber bullying is deliberate and personal attacks intended to intimidate, threaten, humiliate, degrade and/or disgrace an individual on the internet, whether or not they are posted publicly or sent privately. This behavior is quite different than two or more people engaging in a personal argument and thus, should be handled differently. Cyber bullying should be considered “Prohibited Commentary”, punishable by banishment. It is a concern of many that simply discouraging such behavior by removing the offending deviations is ineffective in preventing bullying because it allows the bullies to continue their behavior and encourages them to then resort to harassing via private communication.
We understand that there is always more than one side to every conflict and sometimes it can be difficult to define a behavior as “bullying”, because some conflicts are made to look one-sided, but might be a mutual argument. This is why, to be fair, we believe that anyone accused of bullying should be given an opportunity to plead their case before being banished.
Therefore, we as DeviantART users believe that cyber bullying should be treated and handled with more severity than a 'discouraged commentary', and should be treated as an offense that is punishable by banishment.
