Every time I see Hiccup interact with Astrid, I always think of the last (and only) guy I was with and honestly it hurts my heart because I miss having my own Hiccup to act sweet and dorky and draw and write and make me laugh.
It sounds stupid but I think one of the reasons I love Hiccstrid is because watching them is therapeutic to me in a weird twisted way. Even though it makes me miss being in a romantic relationship with the guy I was with, it also somehow gives me hope and satisfies my desire to go back to a relationship like that.
But really. I was in a bad place because of my living situation and also because I was still depressed after my guy and I realized we had to end things, and when RTTE S4 came out I felt happier because seeing Hiccstrid somehow gave me hope of being in another amazing relationship and made me smile just because who wouldn’t smile?
I know, I have a terrible habit of living in fictional worlds (both books and movies/TV) but it really is therapeutic to have an escape from reality.
