AU. Hiccup Haddock is a menial in the court of King Harild Hofferson, orphaned and shamed when his father vanished on a secret mission into Berserker territory. With no hope of becoming a knight, he still continues his training in secret with his father's old friend, the blacksmith Gobber.
Doing a favour for a knight in training, he takes his place on a routine hunting party with the Princess Astrid but when they are attacked by Outcasts and the Princess is lost with only Hiccup to protect her, her escorts cover their incompetence by claiming he kidnapped her.
Unaware of their treachery, Hiccup will do everything to ensure Astrid gets home safely-despite every obstacle-and restore his family honour.
