This is!

Berk wasn’t built in a day, and neither was this new “How to Train Your Dragon” fansite, blog and forum!

Hey there! I’m Beinir (Ben) Madbear: a hairy (hooligan) Web developer and online producer living in Australia, who only saw the first HTTYD movie in August last year.
Soon afterwards, I had decided to start work on this fansite.

It took a while, but now this fansite is ready to show you. (For more detail on why this fansite was made, see the “About” page here.)

Hi there! – by Masterrohan

Needless to say, I’ve become quite the HTTYD fan and want to collect and show my favorites of what other fans are sharing with like-minded people.
There are many places to look however, and I rely on other HTTYD fans to keep sending goodies they themselves like: such as news, fanart, fanfiction and other cool things.

If you’ve found or made something really nice, send it my way!
If it becomes one of my favourites, I might add it to one of my future blog posts, or invite you to post it on our HTTYD Community Forum.

I am not going to accept money for third-party ads, nor use affiliate links and I won’t “sell” the fansite or my opinions on anything – this fansite is independent. Making money means “work”, and I want this (fan)site to remain “fun”.

Sign up to our Community Forum (logging in will show all its categories), and introduce yourself! Until the newsletter is up and running (see Planned Updates & Updates Log post), this is the best way to stay in touch with new cool Dragons stuff added on this fansite.

Where to Start!

You’ve found the Dragons treasure map! This fansite is all about finding and collecting cool things which the How to Train Your Dragon fans around the world want to show off.
The original HTTYD books, as well as the movies and TV series have inspired so much creativity – artwork, stories, photos, learning and more. There are lots of things to do and see.

The fansite has three main sections:

  1. Web Pages
    An overview of the official HTTYD stuff you can read, watch, listen to and play with. You’ll find tips on where and how to buy or borrow it, and also links to other useful websites.
  2. Blog Pages
    My favourite and newest HTTYD goodies go straight here: fanart, fanfiction, news, Dragons-related topics to discuss, related community events and more!
  3. Our HTTYD Community Forum
    Where Dragon Riders and fans can register and talk about everything HTTYD, as well as post their own fanart, fanfiction and other related goodies.
    Any comments and discussions made on the blog posts also go there automatically.
    (Sign up on the forum, to see all categories and make comments.)
