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.

I love Hiccup's expression, (the look in his eye, the way his hair is blowing in the wind, and the clothes.) He looks more than just hot, he looks really handsome and coragous. You dipicted him incredibly.

Putting all the mwahahaahahas aside, this is very intense! I feel for both of these Vikings. It's terrifying to be brought down by your injuries in a snow storm, pursued by enemies. And. even worse to consider, what has trapped their dragons so these injured humans have to go it on their own. You know that Toothless and the Zippleback (and Ruffnut) had to be blocked somehow, otherwise they'd be fighting everything to get to these guys!

I do hope this tale has a good eding. Neither these guys nor their dragons should suffer so much!

You just forgot to mention Astrid...but that's another story. :plotting:

Let's wait and see!

Thanks. I was just thinking these two were sent on a mission somewhere or somehow wound being stranded. But it's good to hear Astrid is involved in this, too. I like her as a character.

You know, looking at this again, I also like that it's Hiccup and Tuffnut. Because seriously, how often are those two characters stuck together? :D

Ah, I do love peril.... :mwahaha:
Reply
:iconbintavivi:
Bintavivi Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, and coming to think of it, I like the fact that it's Hiccup who's 'protecting' Tuff (his stance is protective)and giving orders here. You know, like peril is the trigger he needs to act instinctively like a leader. :)
