I like to think that in Gift of the Night Fury, when the eggs are exploding and it’s Astrid’s fault, she realized what it must’ve been like to be Hiccup. Trying really hard to please other people, then having it all blow up in your own face.
I don’t even know. I was just eating dinner and watching New Girl and then… this? I guess I wanted to practice drawing skinny bodies since I suck at it and somehow Astrid popped up and then it was just nonsensical rolls of fabric from there
Okay, I’ll give it a story:
Hiccup and Astrid got caught in some freezing rain so when then got inside they had to strip down fast (because if you’ve ever been caught in freezing rain—and I have—you gotta get them clothes off quick). And there’s lots of awkward shuffling and giggles and Hiccup gives Astrid the biggest blanket like a gentleman. That’s what she’s calling him: “you gentleman”
Hiccup’s just trying to hide all that spare chest hair and whatnot.
