I guess this is a hc meme. I'm sorry if it's super long, you don't have to do it, because it's long. Sorry. 10 hc for all the riders. 1) Bad habit, 2) Nightmare, 3) Favorite childhood game 4) Turn on 5) Future job 6) What would they name their children 7) tickle spots, like it or hate it 8) Special talent 9) Secret they only would let special people know 10) How do they want to be remembered?
Wheeeee, this is really long, but it turns out somehow I accidentally answered basically everything anyway??? (that wasn’t my original plan) Haha, hope you enjoy. XD
1). Bad habit
Snotlout: biting his nails. I feel like Snotlout, with his nervousness, is a bit of a chronic nail biter. He completely denies he does it, though, especially since it is tied in with him feeling anxious - another thing he would always want to deny.
Ruffnut: picking her nose. She at least has the finesse to do it discretely, though.
Tuffnut: going even longer than most Vikings do without taking a bath. (Not as bad as Gobber, but… welp. Tuff still isn’t the most pleasant-smelling flower on Berk).
Ruffnut, Tuffnut, and Snotlout: lots of swearing. Astrid also can let slip some bad profanity. There is good evidence for this, too. I believe all the youths swear to varying degrees of frequency outside of Fishlegs, who has a really pure tongue.
Hiccup: does diving off a dragon in dangerous circumstances count as a bad habit?
Fishlegs: washing his hands too many time. He is also (as canonically shown) guilty of stress snacking when he is not hungry.
Astrid: You wouldn’t think it, you really wouldn’t think it, but every once in a while Astrid will let a really big belch rip. She actually impresses Ruffnut and Tuffnut during one dinner. Hiccup never lets her hear the end of it.
What she says: I’m fine
What she means: In Tack’s prologue in the Slash it’s stated his biological father died and his mother remarried to the clockmaker (shortly before dying herself). This means that the people who named Tick and Tack, their biological parents, had no affiliation with clocks whatsoever. So why were they named after the sounds a clock makes? Did their mother just pull the names Tick and Tack out of her ass and then coincidentally marry a clockmaker? Or was she really really into clocks already, and she decided to name her children clock sounds then purposefully seek to marry a clockmaker so that she could be around clocks? Did the clockmaker get her to legally change her sons’ names to the sounds a clock makes????? Was it part of their wedding vows???
One of Kiro and Tryst’s children was named Cavedweller, and lives in an inactive lair. I can’t help but take that to mean that one of their sons, in the throes of a bout of Shade sickness, fled home, hid in a cave, and passed away there.
