okay but what if Hiccup was the one who was blinded instead of Astrid in blindsided?????
Hey there! Sorry this took so long for me to answer.
Sooo I think that the result would pretty much be the same.
Astrid would be super protective of Hiccup, making sure he was never too far away from her.
And something @tarched said when I asked him what his thoughts were, is that Astrid would be “unintentionally aggressive towards everything and everyone else (because she’d be scared).” Yep. This would happen for sure.
Hiccup would worry about the future, not knowing if he will ever see again. Astrid would be there for him.
So, yeah I really think there wouldn’t be too much of a difference if the episode had been about Hiccup being blind instead of Astrid. We would probably have a similar ending.
Thanks for the ask! :D
