"Words were different when they lived inside of you."
I’d like to tell you it gets better and people stop hurting each other, I can’t. But I can tell you that if you hang in there and don’t let them make you bitter or defeated, it will get easier for you to deal with. (x)
I, uh…I was so afraid of becoming my dad. Mostly because I thought I never could. How do you become someone that great, that brave, that selfless? I guess you can only try.
You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige”.”
Toothless, you’re pouting big baby boo.
Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’ - not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.
OK, Hiccup’s relationship with Valka!
Agh, so, in the previous gifset I tumbled, Valka snuck her way into touching Hiccup’s face without his permission. Here she snatches her hand away, then sees he doesn’t mind, and puts it back. And then he leans into it.
There’s just something really gut-punching and raw for me in Hiccup’s eagerness for Valka’s affection and approval. He’s amazed by what she represents, and what she can tell him about his own identity, but at the heart of it, here’s a woman he loves instantly in a very vulnerable way. He’s happy to throw off Viking social conventions in order to interact with her. And how unusual for us to get a film about a twenty-year-old’s loving relationship with his mother! This moment feels very bold to portray on screen.
