Notice: Features a character that is HEAVILY inspired by the design of a Night Fury from DreamWorks' How to Train Your Dragon. I am pretty sure that this depiction counts as fair use. If anyone with any authority on that knows otherwise, please let me know.

Notice: Due to the fantastical circumstances and mysterious past of this fictional world, exposure therapy is a distressing subject for our protagonist.


In the real world, exposure therapy is a common therapeutic strategy that is helpful for many (though not all). This video nor this caption should serve in placement of the words of a licensed psychiatrist or therapist.
