Here me out.
I know it has already been established that Hiccup must have gotten all of his traits (internal and external) from his mother because he definitely did not get it from Stoick.
I CANT GET OVER THE FACT THAT HE IS EXACTLY LIKE HER
Everything from the soft green eyes, the thin body structure, the curiosity, the love for dragons, the epic imagination, the creativity, the sensitivity.
HICCUP AND HIS MOTHER ARE LIKE THE SAME PERSON.
WHAT STOICK HAD TO GO THOUGH EVERYDAY WHEN HE SEES HIS SON AS AN EXACT REPLICA OF HIS WIFE. THE RESEMBLANCE BETWEEN HICCUP AND HIS MOTHER IS NO DOUBT A MIRROR IMAGE. A FACE FILLED WITH CURIOSITY AND LOVE AND KINDNESS. THE MIND TO BREAK BARRIERS AND CHANGE WORLDS. A STRENGTH NOT LIKE THE REST OF THE TRIBE BUT ONE FOUND IN THE HEART AND SOUL. STOIK HAD TO SEE HICCUP GROW UP AND TURN OUT JUST LIKE HER. IMAGINE A FATHER’S PRIDE, A HUSBAND’S GREIF, AS HE SEES TWO PEOPLE HE DEARLY LOVES IN THE SAME PERSON EVERY SINGLE DAY. STOICK MUST HAVE THOUGH MORE THAN JUST “OH MY SON IS OUT OF PLACE FROM THE TRIBE”. STOICK MUST HAVE THINKING ABOUT HIS FAMILY.
HIS WHOLE FAMILY.
HE SAW HICCUP.
im sorry but i was so caught up in this theory i had to say somthing
Maybe that is why he didn’t what his son fighting Dragons, he couldn’t handle the possibility of losing the last connection he had to his wife.
