Headcanon for modern HTTYD AU with dragons (concocted with Oreramar): Toothless likes sitting on Hiccup's computers, usually squishing his laptops. He also hoards wireless mouses, batting them around, so that Hiccup always carries a USB mouse on his person.

Haha, I can just imagine all the chewed cables Hiccup has as well.  This is kitty!Toothless, yes?  I can picture Hiccup having a usb mouse for his PC and an extra for his bag in case he needs a mouse for his laptop.

Hey, Avanna! Have you ever considered doing any sort of multi-chaptered fic about Valka from when she was alone with the dragons? (Between the flashback from the second movie and the events of the second movie) Or, perhaps a Universe Alteration in which she actually DOES turn out as the "villain?" You're the only writer I trust to have the determination, creativity, and respect to the character's in-character-ness to pull it off as well as I know you could!

Of course!  Naturally, I’ve threatened it before (or, rather, whined about how I wish I could stop time and indulge in all the fanfictiony-writey things I want), but sadly I’ll only end up talking about it.

I know somewhere I mentioned wanting to explore Valka’s time away from Berk and the emotional and spiritual journey she went on.  Her grieving for the loss of her family and exploring a curiosity she was always taught to hold back.  All of her little mishaps as she learns to ride dragons and her slow growing relationship with Cloudjumper.  The vow she makes to stay away from Berk because it would be too painful and the times she breaks down after seeing a ship or hearing a child’s cry.  The lands she sees and the people she meets… her story would be pretty epic, and that’s not including the altercations she has with Drago and others like him.

I’ve been asked about Valka as the villain a couple times too (antag!valka, as she’s called on my blog).  Too many times, if anything XD. I got a newer one sitting in my ask box right now… waiting for me to sit my but down and throw some more detail into that speculation. 

Such sweet faith you have in me!  It’s a damn shame (or a lucky stroke, given the disappointment I could easily cause) that I don’t have the time to write all I want to write.

Hiccup’s slightly used mouth

Unless you’ve seen the short, this is probably confusing, but there’s something that jumped out at me as soon as… it happened.  I’m a monster.

Not spoilery.  Minorly nsfw.

Do you know where an anon can find a pdf of How to Train Your Viking?

dragontameroutoftime:

Wasn’t that a book Cressida Cowell wrote from Toothless’ POV?

Edit: Yup.

Thanks for schooling a schooler, kids!  I only know the main books and the Sea-sick Viking one.  Now there’s this one!

avannak:

Um… I don’t know what that is?  That sounds like a fanfiction… so… maybe on AO3?

Alright!  And now I’ve found it too!

somanyfandomsasdfghjkl:

Can we just appreciate that fact that even though Hiccup believed that his mother was killed by dragons, he refused to accept that they were monsters like everyone said?

Except Hiccup didn’t refuse to accept they were monsters.  He was ready to kill them like any other viking—he wanted to kill them—until he was faced with the challenge of doing it and found they were capable of goodness and empathy.

Valka saw good in them before she “saw herself” in one. Hiccup had to experience it first. I feel this is an important distinction between their characters and important to remember about Hiccup.

Guys, 69 followers. It’s been fluctuating, but I finally did it.  Proof for all the disbelieving haters.
What should I do to celebrate?

i thought you already had 69 a few weeks back! have you been pissing people off more than usual? anyway, congrats. I say you should draw a(nother) 69. Maybe make a giveaway and you could give away a drawing of a 69 on a napkin. Or do blogrates from 1 to 69. Or write a book called ‘69 scales of haddock’. All the possibilities.

You know how I piss people off left and right.  It’s always dropping into the forties and then bouncing back up again whenever I post accidental nsfw-stuff. 
It might have to be 69-related because that’s what’s been suggested (and implied) so far.  Also, already have a nice little 50-shades xover idea anyway.  Too bad I can’t do porn for shit.
Hey, I know, how about some more PENISES TOUCHING?

No, it's part of the HTTYD book series.

Um… I didn’t think it was.  Which book is that?

*becomes insecure over daunting statistics* except for that follower count now why the hay is that so glitchy low ((but seriously, are you a really selective liker or something because I've done over 20,000 and I'm pretty certain I've only been here for half the time you have))

I am selective about many things.  Likes included.  Sometimes I like something to show someone that I liked it… and then later unlike it… not because I don’t like it anymore, but to clear out my likes space.  I am weird, I know :/
