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.)
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.
If you know of, or have created any nice HTTYD goodies such as fanart, fanfiction or anything at all, then it would be great if you gave it to ever-helpful Sharpshot (Hiccup’s Terrible Terror) to deliver… or just send an email.
You sending news and updates will help make this place extra-special!
Even if it’s already been sent by other fans to this fansite, your efforts are always appreciated and welcomed.
Every addition to this fansite, such as news, art or fanfiction, will be credited to its original source. If you created it and I put it on the fansite in some form, let me know if you’d like a link back to your gallery/fansite, etc.
If you’d like directions, check out the “Where to Start” blog post here.
New blog posts are almost ready to publish, and in the coming weeks I’ll be adding lots of updates and new features to this website, such as a weekly newsletter, dragon-face emoticons, new header images, story and page updates and more:
You can see a full list right here on our Planned Updates & Updates Log blog post.
That’s it for now! Once the twins Ruffnut and Tuffnut have finished arguing and wrecking things, I’ll put up more cool goodies. Until then, signing up to our forum will get you early access to goodies, as they get built. See you there!
