This past weekend I FINALLY watched How to Train Your Dragon 1 and 2, and I fell in love with Hiccup, Toothless, the gang, and the whole production. I had to immediately re-watch the movies, and the best part? I never got bored the second time! Too many times with movies I watch them and then that’s it. I don’t even have a good attention span for them anymore. But there is something so wonderfully magical about these movies and the characters. Hiccup is this sorry excuse of a Viking, the one person who can’t fucking kill a dragon even though it’s all he’s been taught and it’s his heritage and BLAHBLAHBLAH. He befriends a dragon HE SHOT DOWN BTW and together, they become a team. Together, they push the past aside and find a future for the people of Berk to be able to live alongside dragons. THEY CHANGE EVERYTHING JUST BY ACCEPTING WHO EACH OTHER IS.
There were actual tears from me during HTTYD2 moments. (If you’ve watched them, you probably know the scenes). “Go away Toothless.” SOBBING WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HICCUP WHY ARE YOU BEING SO RUDE AND MEAN AND OMGGGG WHY AM I CRYING RIGHT NOW THIS SHOULDN’T MAKE ME SO SAD IT’S A FUCKING ANIMATED MOVIE FOR GOD’S SAKES. These two will do anything for each other. They build each other up, and turn their weaknesses into strengths. And they will always, always have and accept each other. They turned me into a freaking puddle.
HICCUP AND TOOTHLESS ARE OTP. I mean, JUST LOOK AT THIS.
And here is another for your enjoyment.
Oh, and this one too.
GUYS, THE FEELS WITH THESE TWO. ASDFJKL; WHY ARE THEY SO ADORABLY CUTE AND EVERYTHING.
This seriously hurts so much. MY HEART.
“You have the heart of a chief and the soul of a dragon.” <--One of my favorite quotes from HTTYD2. I want to be a dragonrider too. I want my own Toothless. That’s all I want in life now. *sobs* because I am not one. Life isn’t fair, you guys. But you know what the next best thing is? Reading a book with dragons in it. Except, I have a problem. I have NO IDEA what book even has dragons in it. I feel like I probably KNOW some of them, but my mind is drawing up a blank. I do have Talon by Julie Kagawa on my shelf but I’ve heard such bad things about it that it makes me hesitant to read it.
So, here’s where YOU come in! Give me your best dragon book recommendations! These are one of my fave mythical creatures and I’m kinda obsessed with them right now and I need to read a book that will give me the same feels as How to Train Your Dragon did. I don’t know if it’s possible, but hey, this is why I need YOU!! H E L P M E. :D
