Hiccup at last coming to terms with himself and admitting it out loud. He’s never fit in, never belonged with his people, which was all he ever wanted. After forming his friendship with Toothless he comes to terms with the fact that he doesn’t need to be one of them, because Hiccup has become so much more than that.
((This is actually one of my favorite parts. I mean, look at Hiccup’s adorable face. He’s just realized that this dragon doesn’t necessarily want to hurt him. He’s overwhelmed with curiosity because sweet Odin it’s a dragon. He’s never been this close to one, probably, certainly not without it attacking him, and he just wants to touch it. It’s still a dragon so he jumps away trying to look all casual, because you respect a creature with that much power. No other Viking would do that, though.
(Meanwhile, Toothless is just like, what is up with this human.)
Argh, how do words. I just love how this shows Hiccup’s huge curiosity and the bravery that goes with that and also his innocence and how he’s still basically a child. Also, preview to Hiccup’s awesome agility, anyone? I know most people can’t stand up from sitting cross-legged that fast.))
