As I was drawing this, I came to appreciate the character dynamic of Astrid a lot more.

You ready? Because I am about to analyze this gurl.

Okay, when I watched the first movie, I wasn’t a huge fan of her. She kind of annoyed me and came off as a bully.

But in reality, I think she acted that way because she was trying to hide her softer side that we see towards the end of the first movie, leading into the second. I think she wanted to make herself look like the toughest girl in the group; not wanting any of her flaws to be exposed.

Second movie I just appreciated her character, and what her character contributed to the movie, a lot more. Because she did contribute a good purpose to the movie, not just randomly thrown in there and leaving the audience wondering why she was there in the first place.

Astrid had purposes in the film besides giving us fans someone to ship Hiccup with. 1) She supported Hiccup because he and his dad rarely ever saw eye-to-eye. And its important that our main hero had some sort of support.

2) She kind of took on the leader role of the scraggly teenage viking group when Hiccup was gone. Which I think is important that they have because lets face it; how much would get done if it were up to Fishlegs and Snoutlout? Not much in my opinion.

Also it was awesome when she stood up to Drago.

So yep. Thats it. Astrid is cool. The End:)

When did you last have the pleasure of smelling a flower, watching a sunset, eating a well-prepared meal? For some people, small, beautiful events are what life is all about!

The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands. 

I don’t care if people unfollow this is spectacular
