The Selected [ hiccstrid au ]
* the Selection AU - loosely based off the Selection series by Kiera Cass *
As a Seven in the caste system, Astrid Hofferson is very poor. When an opportunity to earn some money pops up, she applies for the Selection, a competition against 34 other girls for the hand of Prince Eret. In a whirl of events, Astrid is chosen and is whisked from her run-down shack to the glistening palace across the country.
When Astrid meets the prince, she hates him. She hates Eret, she hates the gowns and makeup, the huge buffets and curtsying. But she meets a boy her age, who also hates Eret. But she finds out he's another prince, Eret's younger brother, Hiccup. Astrid and Hiccup develop an odd friendship, each other being the only company they enjoy in the castle. More trouble starts to arise as Eret takes a liking to Astrid, but at the same time, Hiccup and Astrid grow closer.
The longer she stays at the castle, she's thrown into a world full of battles, rebellion, and creatures she had no idea existed. As she chooses a side to fight for, she risks everything for justice.
A royal amount of trouble is going to go down.
