I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.
I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).
They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.
Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work. That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming. I love this.
This is Berk. It snows nine months of the year, and hails the other three. Any food that grows here is tough and tasteless; the people that grow here are even more so. The only upsides are the pets. While other places have ponies, or parrots, we have…dragons.
"It’s not your fault, son."
Hey, RoB did give us a few stellar moments. Did Hiccup ever recover from his father disowning him? I don’t think so. There’s some continuity in their relationship (even in the show), where Hiccup is very reticent around his father whenever Stoick sets him a task that he couldn’t accomplish. I think one of Hiccup’s first priorities post HTTYD is to maintain the newfound respect his tribe - and his father - now gives him.
I live for Hiccup booty shots. Can’t wait for HTTYD2 to be out in DVD so we can have all that bootyliciousness in HD gif glory… Unf.
look at this face and tell me you’re not in love with him
