How To Train Your Dragon: Ireth and Vespera Fable

Our fable begins with a young 18 year old viking girl that goes by the name Ireth Netherland. Who isn't a fighter but an apothecary and alchemist and has a natural curiosity that seems to get her into trouble in more ways than one. Viewed as the outcast of the whole tribe, Ireth must under go a now ten year tradition of claiming a dragon companion of her own again after failing it for 2 years and this is her last chance. Having experienced many bad moments with dragons Ireth has developed a fear of most of the dragon species. Distraught and worried that she would be kicked out of the tribe, Ireth goes out into the woods after failing the test a third time to allow her some comfort in her own mind. There she meets something unexpected that would make her life either easier or deeper into despair. How To Train Your Dragon is owned by Cressida Cowell and Dreamworks.

Sometimes life just comes and kicks you while you're down. Don't give up though, you can get through the hard times, they don't last forever even if they seem too.

Take all the time you need to get through everything, we'll all be here waiting whenever you need us!

I wanna give you a comforting hug! ;w; but the closest thing I can do is a virtual hug. *hugs* You've been through hell and I couldn't help but cry a little when I read this.

Sanu Wolff, May 3rd, 2016, 7:19 pm

Oh god those fricken finals @.@ I am in the middle of stressing over one and I know I botched the other DX Goodluck and get well soon!

Keenan (Guest), May 3rd, 2016, 7:20 pm

Thank you for the update. My condolences as to what has happened to you and the family by the way. This is why I don't divulge or immerse myself in anything, yet. You become unintentionally unaware of what is approaching. It is something that has taken far too many by surprise. Looking forward to your return. And if you need anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask us (your fans) here.

Golux, May 3rd, 2016, 8:08 pm

Bleh, life has a way of doing that... Also understand the introverts vs. the world thing, they tried to make me a salesperson once. My home state welcomes your sister! Thanks for the update, I miss all your dragons.

Timeheart, May 3rd, 2016, 8:21 pm

Well the summer is almost here, and you'll be able to breath easier. Once school is over, you'll be able to Enjoy life again and Enjoy your passions once more! (We're also looking forward to the looks on certain Viking Faces when your spirits are high again!)

Leafy Savanna Chan, May 4th, 2016, 8:26 am

Ahh, that sounds awful! D: I really hope things start to slow down soon. And don't worry - your mental health is more important than this comic, so don't rush yourself. We can be patient c:

Leon (Guest), May 4th, 2016, 12:11 pm

Aww, if you lived closer I could've helped you move; oh well. xD;

Sorry to hear about what happened in your family, it really can be burdening on the soul at times...just lost my cat not too long ago, and that hurt me more than I expected it to.

I'm glad you're alright more or less and while I miss your comics there's obviously more important things to worry about...we can wait.

DC_Dr34m3r, May 4th, 2016, 2:11 pm

I'm really sorry you've been through so much shit as of lately, it really sucks. But hopefully everything will get better at some point so please take all the time you need to get some normalcy, I believe I can speak for all or us (or most of us since lets face it some 'fans' are assfucks) that we're willing to wait for your comics and hope for the best of your personal life.
Please take care <3

Mr.Hollow Wolf, May 4th, 2016, 4:09 pm

I wish you very much luck. :D ;)

oxfantasy, May 4th, 2016, 7:58 pm

sorry for what happened in your family please don't rush yourself your health comes first then some comics keep pushing on and please take care of yourself *hugs*

DatGhost, May 4th, 2016, 9:31 pm

Oh gosh, I hope you get a good chance to rest yourself soon. Glad to hear you're still here, but please don't add the stress of rushing for an update on top of everything else until you're ready. Get feeling better soon and you'll be in my thoughts.

Kacora Mew, May 7th, 2016, 10:14 pm

Take your time sweety, we'll be here when you get back ^_^

WolfYakuga, May 7th, 2016, 10:53 pm

Oh God, I hope you can feel better soon. I've also been depressed and stressed for some time now, so I understand. I haven't had much time to draw my webcomics either. But please don't worry, first it is important that YOU feel better soon, so don't add more stress thinking about more things when you already have a lot to do. I'm sure everyone here will wait for as much time as you need. Take care, please!

Stickboy172 (Guest), May 8th, 2016, 4:48 am

SilverNightFuryz (Guest), June 9th, 2016, 9:02 pm


Dont fret we all have our ups and downs in school, I always thought i was gonna die XD I mean I kind of having it easy but online ITS CHAOS! When I look at ur comics and drawings I FLIP OUT OF MY CHAIR! (literally and my head hurts half the time XP) U have inspired TONS of ppl (forgive me for using too much caps) Still ur drawing and characters the way they feel and the emo IS INTENSEEEEE! So here is a little advice "No matter how hard life gets, no matter how far down u r, never give up on hope and have faith u can survive through the biggest disasters then u will find out wat ur made of!" Kilo (my fan made Albino Night Fury) usually says "The old wise advice from Silver.. never gets old" I hope this helps u COZ U HELPED ME ALOT in UNKNOWN WAYS!!

TiniStar (Guest), June 10th, 2016, 2:52 pm

OH MY! What a hectic adventure... I do hope you get well (in all ways)!

SilverNightFuryz (Guest), June 11th, 2016, 1:36 pm

Short minded

Forgot to say I also had a family death.. my grandma passed when she just got out from surgery I rlly thought I would get to spend more time with her,but I guess God had other plans. I've been depressed yes. I also have been stressed coz my stepdad with his 3 year old violence around my house. It can take a toll on anyone. I may be short minded and forget where I put my toothbrush at. At least I'm human... we're all human. I'll be praying for u Yami. Hope u get well.

Hey there, are you okay?

tenshinoakuma, July 13th, 2016, 12:24 am

I was wondering...

Hey, I'm Adeline. I'm new in smackjeeves, but I'e reread your story more than ten times. I'm writing this to you because I think that your story deserves to be spread even further, and I absolutely love writing. So I was wondering if I could publish your story under your name on my Wattpad account in story/paragraph form. The whole story belongs to you, of course, and the art. I just think that Ireth and Vespera's story should expand further. I understand if you decline, I just felt the need to say all this. Thank you. Ireth and Vespera brought a lot of light into my life.

@yamilink: How's it going? How have things been working for you?

yamilink, July 26th, 2016, 12:02 pm

@Keenan: Life is one giant roller coaster at the moment. Some days are good, where as others are really chaotic.

Keenan (Guest), July 26th, 2016, 1:00 pm

@yamilink: I see. Well, keep us posted on your status and hope to see you back on your feet soon. Things are just not the same without you and your work.

Nicolbolas13, July 28th, 2016, 10:33 am

What is the species of Rune's dragon, Boreas?

yamilink, July 28th, 2016, 12:57 pm

@Nicolbolas13: Boreas is a White Dragon. And yes, that's the actual name of the type of dragon he is, not just because of his color. It is a the cousin of the Saber Tooth Driver Dragon.

Nicolbolas13, July 28th, 2016, 4:28 pm

book dragons

I came up with my own comic idea for httyd, and I threw in Skullions from the book series, and Hiccup's son Stoick gets a baby skullion.

Nicolbolas13, July 29th, 2016, 8:10 pm

you dont know me

@EmeraldAurora: Let me say that my normal stress makes yours and most others seem like a great day. You don't have to fear the uncontrollable.

EmeraldAurora, July 29th, 2016, 9:37 pm

@Nicolbolas13: I'm very sorry if I was insensitive or have offended you in any way. That was not in any way my intention.

Nicolbolas13, July 31st, 2016, 7:59 am

@EmeraldAurora: It doesn't matter. Life is hard, and I have to control my monster.

Jay the night fury (Guest), August 1st, 2016, 6:26 am


she's coming back...

Nicolbolas13, August 2nd, 2016, 8:09 am


@Jay the night fury: Coming back in what way?

Nicolbolas13, August 9th, 2016, 7:36 pm

@Jay the night fury: It will be a good wait for sure. Also, I am expecting to see the whispering death very soon in the story.

Jay the night fury (Guest), August 11th, 2016, 3:24 pm


@Nicolbolas13: Jay: 0__0 >n< *walks out of room* nopenopenopenopenopenopetynope.

Nicolbolas13, August 11th, 2016, 7:28 pm

@Jay the night fury: ????? The whispering death isn't dead by what we can tell. It is passable that it appears again.

Jay the night fury (Guest), August 23rd, 2016, 6:49 am


@Nicolbolas13: Jay : i'm just saying i don't want to see it ever again. It scared the programing out of my systems. :(

Nicolbolas13, August 15th, 2016, 6:36 am

new character?

Who is that standing next to ireth. I don't recognize that person.

yamilink, August 15th, 2016, 9:23 am

@Nicolbolas13: That is Korzel. She's part of my other comic, Moonfire that is on Smack Jeeves.

The SkrillRider (Guest), August 17th, 2016, 10:33 am

Will you update again soon? The cliffhangers are driving me insane.

Nicolbolas13, August 24th, 2016, 6:20 am
