Dragon Whisperer (HTTYD)
Skuf the Silent, a young warrior from the Berserker tribe, has always been different. He was a mute, unable to speak, but he discovered he could hear what others could not - emotions, intents, even the wordless exchanges between dragons. As he develops his ability to communicate with dragons, he learns that the enemy tribe on Berk has found a way to be friends with dragons instead of enemies. As he watches a madman grab for more and more power for its own sake, Skuf realizes he can stop this madman. Not just that Skuf CAN stop him, but he MUST at all costs.
My goal with this story is to envision a HTTYD universe in which Berk takes more pragmatic approach to integrating dragons into their lives other than simply letting them roam like alley cats. I also want to explore the idea of dragons being telepathically sensitive as it would explain a lot of scenes in the movies where dragons conveniently understand what people are saying. My take on dragons is sort of a mix between Hitchups and Dragonriders of Pern.
Obligatory disclaimer. Dreamworks owns their HTTYD characters and elements. I don't. Barf and Belch had an argument about which of them owns me, though. The jury's still out. I'm impartial because one of them stinks and the other keeps shocking me.
