• *Everyone standing in a circle around the broken coffee maker*
  • Stoick: Who broke it?
  • *silence*
  • Stoick: I'm not mad. I just want to know.
  • *silence*
  • Hiccup: I did! I broke it-
  • Stoick: No. No you didn't. Tuffnut?
  • Tuffnut: Don't look at me... Look at Snotlout.
  • Snotlout: What? I didn't break it!
  • Tuffnut: Huh, that's wired. How'd you even know it was broken?
  • Snotlout: Because it's sitting right in front of us, and it's broken.
  • Tuffnut: Suspicious.
  • Snotlout: No it's not!
  • Fishlegs: If it matters, probably not but, Ruffnut was the last one to use it.
  • Tuffnut: Liar! I don't even drink that crap!
  • Fishlegs: Oh really? Then what were you doing by the coffee cart earlier?
  • Tuffnut: I use the wooden stirs to push back my cuticles! Everyone knows that, Fishlegs!
  • Hiccup: Okay okay! Let's not fight I broke it let me pay for it, dad.
  • Stoick: No! Who broke it?!
  • *silence*
  • Snotlout (approaches Stoick): Cheif.... Astrid's been awfully quiet.
  • Astrid: REALLY?!?
  • *All begin to fight*
  • Stoick (in confidence): I broke it. I burnt my hand so I punched it.
Toothless is such a little adorable shit

Also he’s so protective of Hiccup.

He knows how mean Astrid was to Hiccup and she practically tried to kill him when she first saw him, so when they decided to go for a ride, Toothless tested Astrid a bit. And he wouldn’t stop it until she said sorry.

Then it was all good.

At the end of the movie, when everyone thought Hiccup died, and Stoick kneels next to Toothless, mourning after his son,

he apologizes for not believing in him, for forcing him to become something he is not, for saying he’s not his son, so everything, Toothless reveals he had saved Hiccup after all.

Toothless awaits for the apology, so he knows Hiccup is safe. Both with Astrid and Stoick, he tested them and made sure they were sorry for their actions and now Hiccup is safe with them and he doesn’t have to worry.

That is love y’all

HTTYD Marching Band AU

I was up until 3AM writing these, I don’t even know. 

Hiccup - Percussion

  • He’s an all-state oboe player but he has to play SOMETHING during marching band season.
  • He is actually very versatile and can play most percussion instruments but his inability to hold the heavy drums while marching limits him at first (until the growth spurt hits aka the magic of puberty oh glory to god in the highest).
  • Starts off playing mallet percussion and cymbals and gets a bunch of crap from Snotlout about only playing “wussy” instruments
  • The jokes stop soon after he starts playing snare drum. Y’all know those quick fingers can twirl a stick.  Y’all know. 
  • Is constantly guarding the cow bell from the wandering hands of Ruff and Tuff in the bleachers.
  • Gets super cranky toward the end of football season because why does it have to be so cold???????
  • Most likely to show up on game day with a wrinkled uniform or one missing glove. It’s not because he doesn’t care, he’s just super busy and something is forgotten near the end of the week. 

Astrid - Trumpet

  • There is no shinier instrument in the band than Astrid’s.
  • Takes solo auditions very seriously, even though she will undoubtedly receive every trumpet solo.
  • Is very territorial concerning where she sits (first chair in the trumpet section, the same seat in the bleachers for every home game, the aisle seat next to Hiccup on the band bus)
  • Can spot an incorrect roll step from 40 yards down the field.
  • Keeps a very strict practice schedule with a color coded calendar. 
  • Finds it incredibly arousing when Hiccup curses quietly under his breathe after breaking a drumstick.
  • Gives Snotlout really great pep talks if she thinks he’s getting nervous before a show, even if he won’t admit it. 

Snotlout - Trombone

  • “You know Astrid, it takes a lot of muscle and stamina to hold up an instrument of this size OUCH OK OK sorry-”
  • So many American Pie: Band Camp jokes. So. Many. 
  • Helped Tuffnut sew the color guard flags but don’t tell anyone it’s a secret ok? 
  • Can be seen rocking a Bro Tank™ every day of band camp, ever.
  • Keeps the cleanest uniform, always wants to look sharp. 
  • Gets really nervous if he sees his dad in the stands.
  • Most likely to be yelled at for being out of formation on the sidelines while waiting for the halftime show to start (flirting with a cheerleader or football player of course)

Fishlegs - Piccolo

  • Carries a laminated binder of all drill sheets throughout band camp, just in case anyone should need a reference.
  • Reviews performance footage with Astrid over lunch the Monday after a show.
  • Takes meticulous care of his instrument (it may even be shinier than Astrid’s on occasion but he doesn’t want to risk a punch by asserting the  idea)
  • Keeps a small bag with sunscreen and extra water bottles nearby during outdoor rehearsal just in case anyone gets dehydrated.
  • Is a very attentive section leader, always checking in to make sure the freshmen are keeping up and answering their questions.

Tuffnut - Color Guard

  • Designed and sewed all the flags used by the guard during a week of in-school suspension.
  • Regularly calls his sister a butt-faced troll but always carries extra reeds for her in his uniform pocket just in case she needs them (he’s a cinnamon roll, fight me).
  • If he wasn’t a color guard captain he would definitely be the school mascot.
  • Performed his whole sophomore season with two broken wrists due to a freak slip ‘n slide accident at the ‘end of band camp’ celebration. He refers to it as his “finest season.”
  • Names all the flags, apologizes to it if he drops one.

Ruffnut - Saxophone

  • Snotlout jokes about American Pie: Band Camp. Ruffnut lives it. 
  • No one has ever seen Ruffnut practice her instrument outside of band practice but she can effortlessly play all of her parts. ***Flawless.
  • Most likely to trash talk the opposing team/fans from the stands on game day.
  • Ruff loves embarrassing Hiccstrid by sneaking up behind them while they’re standing together and playing saxophone selections of obviously romantic/sexual songs.  Some favorites include Careless Whisper, Talk Dirty, and Smooth Operator.
  • Those screams you hear in the distance are the result of Ruffnut beating Tuff with his flag pole.
