louts

Ignorant louts… who deny not merely the class struggle but even the existence of classes, only prove that, despite all their blood-curdling yelps and the humanitarian airs they give themselves, they regard the social conditions under which the bourgeoisie rules as the final product, the non plus ultra [highest point attainable] of history, and that they are only the servants of the bourgeoisie.
—  Marx, Karl, 5 March 1852, Letter: Marx to J. Weydemeyer in New York.

At first the dream sequence seems totally random, but after thinking about it for a while I believe there is some sort of logic to it. Namely: the dream gradually gets worse.

At first he dreams of Fishlegs and Astrid mocking him and Heather saying she was in love with him. Snotlout is not stupid and despite his confident flirting he clearly knows Astrid and Heather are not into him. Heather actually saying it is just a confirmation of what he already knew, but maybe he has a tiny bit of hope that she (or Astrid) might fall for him in the future. As a beggar, however, that is absolutely out of the question.

Then he dreams of Ruff and Tuff with…. a golden sheep. Okay, I have no idea why they have a sheep, but Snotlout detests being less than those idiot twins even more so than Fishlegs, Astrid and Heaher’s rejection. The twins also stand on a cart pulled by their dragon: they are literally and figuratively looking down on Snotlout.

Third up are Hiccup and Toothless. Snotlout probably respects them a LOT and would love to get his respect as well. He became a fan from the moment scrawny little Hiccup became the cool guy in town and I do not think that ever stopped after the events of HTTYD 1. I even like to believe he secretly wishes to be more like Hiccup. After all, Hiccup has the night fury, the respect if his dad/the chief, almost all dragons like him, even Astrid likes him. He said something like this in Defiant one. “Hiccup’s so smart! Hiccup’s so brave! He killed the Red Death! He trained the dragons! He’s got the metal leg!“

Forelast is Gustav replacing him. Gustav is his fan and probably his only fan. And as with the twins, Gustav being considered better than him is a true nightmare. 

But what wakes him up and what thus is his worst nightmare is losing Hookfang.

And I don’t know whether to find that endearing or sad.

Another thing I loved about the Wonder Woman movie is that it’s not the lofty and noble and powerful who come to her aid. No, the ones who end up rallying enthusiastically behind her are a crew of louts who’ve already been beaten down and broken by the worst war has to offer; cynical, hardened, and bitter and one suffering especially miserably from what would later be named ptsd. Utterly ordinary people who would, by the end, be willing to risk their necks for the greater good. No finer example that mankind can pick itself up from the ashes to do better.

You know that line in Not Lout where Ruff is like, I should have stayed in bed and Tuff is like, I should have stayed under that bad.

Do you think that sometimes the gang wakes up and finds Tuffnut under their bed??

Like, Astrid wakes up because Stormfly is nudging her awake and she’s like pointing at under the bed insistently so she looks and Tuff’s sleeping under her bed. And she’s not even that bothered by it. 

Headcanon that the gang every so often finds that Tuff is sleeping under their bed.

@astridthevalkyrie This might be relevant to your interests.

I would like to say a word about the new season of Rtte.

Usually, I don’t tell what I feel on Tumblr but this is getting on my nerves since the release. I know I will not have many friends after but I don’t care, I’m not affect by insults on the web.

Anyway, here something I wanted to talk about first:

After the release of the first three season, all we were able to say was “more hiccstrid”, “more more more”. This season we got a lot of Hiccstrid, but like a looooooot more of Hiccstrid. And a few months ago, the producers said that they signed for two more seasons of Rtte.

Yesterday, I went on tumblr and I saw posts about complain. The people who are complaining, are complaining about they didn’t like the Hiccstrid, the kisses, the story, the characters and else. They said that the producers could do better for Hiccup and Astrid and I don’t know remember what else but ANYWAY, they don’t like how the show is going.

Guys, if you don’t like it then stop watching it. And seriously, they gave us all we wanted to have. I mean come on, for two months, we were getting the producers on their nerves because some fans wouldn’t stop asking them why they are not posting the date of the release and now we told them that they made a bad job?! Hey, they are doing everything they can for US. The show is a wonderful sigh for our eyes, animation like story. Our questions are getting answered, we getting what we hope for and each seasons is better than the previous.

These guys deserves some respect, they are the creators of the story of race to the Edge so as a fan, we must agree with what they decide to put in the show, like it or not. You can not like it, it’s your choice, everybody have a choice. But please, don’t say they could do better because they already trying to.

That was just something I needed to clear but now my thoughts on the new season:

As I said, we got a lot of Hiccstrid but that’s only in the three last episode. The others ones were incredible. Twintuition makes me laugh until my ribs hurts, Midnight Scrum was so intense with all these guys hunting Hiccup, Not Lout was so cool because we saw Snotlout having nightmares about getting bullied and I personally recognize myself in him.

Okay so I will finish on Hiccstrid. We got three kiss with a really passionate one for the first that make their relationship official. We saw the worry, the compassion, the dragon rider, the support in Astrid that we saw in httyd2 so that’s a proof that the show is following the movies. She is always the one getting hurt, that’s true but I think that’s normal and understandable cause she’s the one with Hiccup that have a true sense of leadership and she is a really stubborn girl and independent woman so she wants to do stuff for proving herself and to the others she is worth it like in Blindsided and in Astrid’s team. And that’s why she is my favorite character. For the next seasons, we are going to see them grew as a couple and that’s something I and the fans hoped so much to see cause we are getting the close Hiccstrid we have in the sequel movie.

The dragons: Toothless was so terribly cute and OH MY THOR, he acts EXACTLY the same as my cat (I should put a video for comparing those two). I love the way he putted his tail around Hiccup and Astrid when she laying on the floor in Blindsided, a true little family. I can only hope to see more moments with only him and Hiccup, but I’m not worry, we have to see how Hiccup came up with the “automatic” tail. Stormfly was also super cute and the way she protected Astrid is why I love the most, a true complicity, gods so amazing. The Triple Strike, one of my favorite dragon ever, we could saw his moves and so honking cool!!

And for ending this post, Heather and Dagur: I love Heather, she is so cool and the best friend I dream to have. I love relationship between siblings so when she finally bonded with Dagur, it made my heart race and I was so happy. The way they fighting with the riders is so awesome, I love that!!

So that’s it. Sorry if it’s a little messed up for an opinion post but I really wanted to explain what I felt about all I see on Tumblr and the show, and mainly make my self clear. Race to the Edge or the movies, it’s Httyd in general (and I will not talk about how they changed and saved my life for the good cause it’s personal). I will never thank Dreamworks enough for creating this story with Cressida.

It will always gonna take an important place in my heart (that’s why I’m getting tattooed the Night Fury logo soon) and whatever they will do for Dragons, I will always respect it, be a supportive fan, and be there for it.

I’m a Dragonite after all ✌🏼😉.

Not Lout

Snotlout :’( 

Love the insecurities, and his anxiety, and the pressure his father puts on him and how he’s still struggling to find himself in that messy balance of dad’s approval and changing with the times and fitting in with his peers.

You know what else I love?

Acknowledging that the dragon riders are aware that Hiccup’s going to be chief one day and that they’re looking at how the dynamics in their group are going to shift and where their future lies.

  • record label: ok think about something challenging but don't be too extra
  • Hurts: of cource, sure
  • also Hurts: LIFE UNTO US BE A FUTILE ABUSE. NO BANEFUL USE TO I. I, FABULOUS TEEN! I SEE YOU, BLUNT OAF! I BE USEFUL TO AN UNSAFE LOUT. I BE A NUBILE FUSE IN A BUTENE SOUL. IF A BEFOUL UNTIES, NEBULA FUSE TO I!

It is that time of year again: my heart swells with excitement at the prospect of interaction with fellow comics enthusiasts at the Emerald City Comicon (this upcoming weekend.) You can find me at table 1214.  I hope to see you there! 

For those of you unable to attend, I will imagine the enjoyment we might have had while looking wistfully to the horizon. I will also make my convention inventory available in my etsy emporium.
