Hiccup reads the Valhallarama Scenes by Crownflame Hiccup reads the Valhallarama Scenes by Crownflame
Commission for JayaLaw !

Httyd2 Hiccup reading the books.

It'd been a while since I'd read a lot of the later ones in the series, but it really is quite satisfyingly eerie how the mother-son meetings in book 10... interact with what happened in the movie.

This was one of my favorite scenes in the whole series:)
I love how Hiccup exploded when he was "betrayed" by his mother, and how he yelled at her, because it seemed like the right thing for him to do in that situation.

I personally think Movie! Hiccup should have been mad. No, SPITTING mad. I still don't understand why Valka didn't even visit Berk at least ONCE, in SECRET or something, for 20 years! 

Anyway, great artwork!!!

I'm finding that the books are darker than the movie's

Me too, they get pretty intense at times. to tell the truth I like the book Hiccup and Toothless partnership the Movie pair's.

The dynamic is certainly more unique. Movie's is very sweet but very standard. You never know what to expect from Book Toothless and he almost throws Hiccup under the bus several times for really silly reasons. Because he's a dragon.

And honestly I like it when dragons manage to retain that inhuman quality.

Ahh, this is so cool! Thanks so much for doing this. I love that Hiccup has a very snarky reaction to that bit in the books, because that bit made me furious.

No problem! Thanks for the commission!!

It's one of many instances where movie probably had it easier off. LOL

You're welcome. I really needed this after reading books ten and eleven because Valhallarama rubs me in the wrong way.

The movies in hindsight have it easier off in general; Hiccup gets long-lasting respect and a cool dragons, Snotlout isn't a jealous traitor, Stoick is actually a smart chief, and movie Toothless exists.

Exactly. Book Hiccup's life kinda sucks. He has his two friends, SOMETIMES his  persnickety dragons, and everyone else is either disappointed, or wants to kill him most of the time.

I like it though. He's adapted to it pretty well.

And it just keeps getting worse, all because Hiccup got bad karma from framing the Hairy Scary Librarian for the stolen Stealth Dragon and because he needs to be a hero. It is amazing how he's adapted, but I imagine he believes in the Misery Builds Character trope. I believe he suffers PTSD as a chief.
