Get Up And Run by Bintavivi Get Up And Run by Bintavivi
Full colour version is up!! =D The description remains the same, though. ^^;

I've been listening to Tania Opland and Mike Freeman's song "Run!" from their album "Sunset's Gold", which is based on Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series.

"Then my feet took off my legs went, too,
And my body was obliged to follow.
Me with my hands and mouth full of cress
And my throat too dry to swallow.

I thought Id run before been running all my life
Never doubting I could hold my own
But faster than Ive ever been is still not fast enough
Though Im straining every muscle and bone, to

Run! Run! Run! No time to think, stop or stay, just
Run! Run! Run! I want to live to see the end of this day."


Those lyrics inspired this scene where Hiccup and Tuffnut are attacked -for a reason that I will not reveal for now- and outnumbered. The snowstorm, Hiccup's prosthetic leg and Tuff's wound make it difficult for the both of them to run away, yet they know they have to do it if they want to stay alive.

Coloured with Gimp.

The lyrics were partially written by Ms. McCaffery herself in [i]Dragonsong[/i]. It is what was going through her character Mellony's mind when she realised she was out in the open with a Threadfall bearing down on her.
