13. Has a fic ever made you cry?
Lately I’ve been on a crying spree every time I read something sad. “Untold” and “To Be Loved the Way You Love Me" by Muggleborndragonryder, especially chapter 42 in the latter. Hitchups’s first few chapters are also worth a cryfest.
14. What tropes/elements/scenarios get you the worst?
Character Death, betrayal, mending relationships. Mending relationships hits really close to home, because I feel that many HTTYD fanfics don’t get it right.
15. Do you mind when characters cry?
Only if it’s out of character, or to portray the character as a weakling. Crying happens gradually, and guys hate to be caught with tears. If you’re going to break a copyrighted or original character in such a way, JUSTIFY the cryfest. Build up to it, so that it doesn’t come out of nowhere.
16. How do you feel about character death in fic?
Generally do not like, unless it’s done well.
17. Any characters who you can’t stand to see in pain?
At this point, no. Characters have to suffer to make story happen, so might as well pile on the angst.
18. Favorite angst fic?
“To Be Loved the Way You Love Me" because the revisions add to this appealing AU scenario of Hiccup being raised as an Outcast and finding his way to Berk as a distrustful boy.
