WIP stuff for Chippy. I’m extra late for her birthday along with others’ birthday gifts.
This is an AU where Jack has the other night fury (albino), lives deep in a blizzard biome with his tribe, he was already a chief of his tribe way before hiccup became chief, he has that airbending staff that aang has instead of a flight suit (though he looks like he has one.) Blink (the albino night fury and the temporary name given by Chippy) shoots ice and lightning instead of fire and lightning. S/he was saved by Jack before s/he hatched, so basically they’ve been buddies since childhood. IDK. The AU is in progress. I feel like there will be LOTS of changes.
THIS IS WHY WE NEED GOOD, REAL REPRESENTATION OF MINORITIES IN KIDS SHOWS AND FILMS, SO THEY CAN HAVE SOMEONE TO RELATE TO. THIS IS SO SO FUCKING IMPORTANT.
RE: Fiction Week, I’d like to say that I recently watched the Avatar: The Last Airbender series and I not only enjoyed it very much, I came away from it with a vague yet profound sense of well-being. It’s extremely well-written Epic/High Fantasy based in Indigenous and Non-Western cultures and mythology.

It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways, but Dumbledore knew — and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents — that there was all the difference in the world.”
