The Big Four: The Rise of the Darkness (Ch. 8)
Jamie let out a long, suppressed sigh after Jack's long explanation. It just turned dark once he finished, Jamie and the others had to move to Jamie's room so his mom wouldn't get suspicious. "So Pitch is really back? With others?" Jack nodded. "What's going to happen? How are you going to fight them? Can you fight them? Will everyone stop Believing again? What if I stop Believing—?"
"Jamie!" Jack gripped onto one of Jamie's shoulder. "Calm down. You'll never stop Believing in us. Ever. And don't worry; we'll get rid of them."
"But—! What about them?" He gestured at Hiccup, Merida, and Rapunzel, who were too busy tinkering with the TV and some of Jamie's gaming systems to pay attention to the conversation. "Do they even know what they're up against?"
Jack glanced over to rest of the Four then shook his head. "I don't know…" He sighed and straightened back up to his feet. "The Guardians and I thought Pitch would be gone for at least another six hundred y

Jack now seriously doubted that Katelynn knew where she was going. When she showed up, she looked like she hasn't slept for two days…and hungry. Every once and a while, he'd hear a small growl come from the red-brunette. "Is she sure that Mor'du was this way, Hic?"
Hiccup shrugged his shoulders and passed on the question for Jack, "Hey, Katelynn?"
Katelynn looked over her shoulder. "What?"
"You sure that Mor—I mean—the bear was this way?"
"I'm positive." Katelynn's attention went back ahead. "This was the road I took when I came to find you…by the way, 'Punzel said that there's three of you. Unless your…dragon counts as one, where's the other two?"
"Right behind you…" Jack muttered.
Merida shook her head. "She really doesn't know that we're here then."
Hiccup looked flustered. "Um…well…let's see—gods, how do I put this…?"
"You ramble a lot, you know that?" Katelynn interrupted Hiccup. She shook her head with a sm

Three magic portals formed simultaneously in the Workshop. Tooth, Bunnymund, Sandy, and Jack watched the portals with content. Right then the portal on the far left released a blonde girl, she plopped face-first out of the portal as if she was pushed. I split second later a black and white Clydesdale sprinted out the portal in the middle, it's rider, a girl with crazy red hair, pulled her horse's reins back to make it stop. Right after the horse's appearance, a giant ebony dragon burst out of the portal, making the three Guardians duck so they wouldn't get hit. The dragon landed behind them, revealing its teenaged male rider with brown hair. Out of the same portal came out North and his sleigh. He jumped out of the sleigh and landed firmly onto his feet, his team went back to their quarters.
North motioned at each teen as he said, "This is Rapunzel, Merida DunBroch, and Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III."
It was Merida that said, "North, what's going on?"
"What happened to my home, my dad?
The Big Four: The Rise of the Darkness (Ch. 6)
Shocked silence remained in the Workshop's atmosphere for quite some time. The newly dubbed Big Four looked at each other with surprise and confusion. Rapunzel broke the silence, "We're…the Four?"
"But…how's that possible?" Merida's voice was a bit shaken. "We don't even know each other!"
"And we're…mortals? Are you guys gods or something?" Hiccup added, his voice was also a bit shaken.
North let out a hardy laugh, "No! No, we are Guardians! We protect the children of the world! Both good or bad, naughty or nice, we protect them with our lives! But we are immortal."
"Then how could we help? We're just normal humans, we don't have any special powers or anything." Hiccup told North. He noticed that Rapunzel shifted around uncomfortably. "Don't we…?"
Rapunzel made a nervous laugh, "Nope!"
Tooth flew towards Rapunzel and said gently, "It's okay, Rapunzel, you can show us. We won't do anything to you, I promise." Rapunzel searched in Tooth's eyes to see if she wa

"Mother?" Katelynn repeated. "Your mom is one of those psychopaths?!"
Rapunzel was too shocked to reply to Katelynn, too shocked to even hear her question. "How…how did you get here?"
Mother Gothel went over to Rapunzel and helped her get off of the ground. "My little flower, you look so tired! How about you come with mommy to a safe place?"
Katelynn flipped off of the ground and stepped between them. She glared violently at Mother Gothel and growled, "Safe place my ass. You ain't her mom…you two look nothin' alike…"
Mother Gothel slowly returned Katelynn's glare. "I am too her mother. And you shouldn't show so much disrespect towards me, child."
Katelynn knitted her eyebrows and opened her mouth to make a comeback, but was interrupted by a roar. Both her and Rapunzel's eyes widened and slowly turned where the roar had sounded. Down the road, there was a small visible red speck. Both Rapunzel and Katelynn knew what the small red speck was: Mor'du. "We gotta

"Ah, there they are!" North's voice boomed as soon as the Four landed in the workshop. "How was Jamie?"
Sandy noticed uncomfortableness rising from the young Guardians. He made a question mark over his head.
Jack sharply inhaled before he asked, "Do you guys know a girl named Katelynn?"
North let out a hardy laugh, "Jack, there are thousands of Katelynns in the world! I need more detail than that!"
"Does West Salem help?" Rapunzel asked.
North ran his fingers through his beard. "Hm…that narrows it down a little bit."
"She lives in the same town as Jamie." Rapunzel added.
North thought for a second then snapped his fingers. "Oh! Is it Katelynn Odden?" Jack nodded. "I haven't heard her name for quite a while…why? Has something happened?"
'Odden? Sounds like 'Odin'…' Hiccup shook the thought away and answered, "Yes. She has been…"
"Kidnapped." Merida finished. "We went to her house after she…" She looked at Jack for the right word.

The sun was on the horizon when Rapunzel thought it would be fun to get the whole square to dance when a small band passed by her while playing a small tune. It turned out that she was right, the Four had a blast! And so did the townspeople. Hiccup would trip on his feet every once and a while but kept to the rhythm of the music along with Merida, who surprised everyone with how well her dancing skills. Jack tried to resist, but someone pushed him in. He eventually ended up with Rapunzel because the dancing style was like square dancing mixed with an energized waltz. The ones who weren't dancing clapped to the beat. The music suddenly ended. The Four ended up in the center of all the dancers, ending it together. The dancers clapped and cheered gleefully until someone yelled, "It's time!" The crowd quickly peeled away and went into shops.
"Time for what?" Rapunzel wondered.
Jack looked back to the sun. It was almost gone and the stars started to appear. "I think it's time for the lanter
