lol i’m tryin! i’ve got some sketches of toothless i’m working on, so that’s a start
ohh man a modern au would be rad; imagine all the stuff you could integrate into that! (speaking of dragon racing, i read the other day that toothless’ gear designs/how hiccup rides him, those things were partly inspired by horse racing dynamics, which … isn’t that interesting of a fact but hey the more you know! :D)
don’t get me started on how i can hardly seem to sniff out decent httyd fic beneath all the jack frost inserts and frankly creepy human!toothless fics. though i do like your description; that’s something i’d be more inclined to check out but i have found a few good ones if you’d like me to link them to ya
I WANT TO WATCH IT AGAIN SO BADLYY gosh there’s so much to pay attention to and it’s FANTASTIC. i constantly had this massive grin on my face cause every time the humans were talking/were in the foreground of the shot, the dragons in the background were always doing natural restless animal things, playing around with each other, reacting to the characters, the list goes on, NOTHING IN THIS MOVIE IS STATIC (and i adore toothless so much it’s kind of ridiculous that silly animated dragon has broken my heart multiple times the lil bugger (i’m even planning a short post-canon fic from his perspective)
ALLLL THE STUFF I COULD INTEGRATE INTO A MODERN AU and yet i insist on Toothless eating all the ice cream in the fridge to Hiccups dismay aND WHAT IF THEY WATCH MOVIES TOGETHER AND TOOTHLESS LAUGHS AT HICCUP BEING A SAP OR OR OR HICCUP WITH A REBEL STREAK AND LANDING TOOTHLESS ON SKYSCRAPERS EVEN THO ITS ILLEGAL AND THEY FLY SO FAST THEYRE NEVER CAUGHT oh god bae what have u done im thinking about this au what have you done(…does that mean horse AU. Im p sure that means horse AU. hORSES SCREA M S)
O H M Y G O D IF YOU HAVE GOOD FICS THEN YES. YES PLEASE REC THEM TO ME. OR BETTER YET, FLING THEM IN MY FACE AND LET IT HIT ME WITH ENOUGH FORCE TO WASH AWAY ALL THE BAD ONES IVE BEEN DECIEVED INTO READING. Y E AH THE CREEPY ONES ARE PRECISELY WHAT I MEANT JFC I READ THE DESCRIPTIONS AND FELT SO FILTHY I ALMOST GAVE UP LOOKING FOR BETTER FIC but in the end i only had like fIVE GOOD FIC OUT OF ALL THE ONES ON AO3 SO IM KINDA LIKE. WHYYYYYYY.
And yessss ikr aaaaaaa ;;;VVV;;; its just such a nice thing to have?? That theres always natural movement in the bg for the dragons and we learn a lot about their character even when they arent the focus of the scene??? BASICALLY IT WENT LIKE YOU THINK DRAGONS ARE COOL? YOU THINK THEYRE ALL NOBLE FIGHTERS LIKE IN THE FIRST MOVIE? NO. THEYRE ACTUALLY GIANT CATS AND BUNNIES CONDENSED INTO A REPTILE FORM WITH WINGS. LOVE THEM. FEAR THEM. AND FEED THEM A LOT OF FISH. (ooooooomg that fic sounds like a WONDERFUL idea AAAAAAA and i totes get where youre coming from about Toothless tho like GOD CAN IT GET ANY CUTER UGH NO STOP YOU HEARTBREAKER of which reminds me do you have any headcanons about Toothless before Hiccup? Because idk I just wonder so much and it didnt look like Hiccup’s contraption had caused him the lost tailfin so i THINK ALOT ABOUT THE NATURE OF DRAGONS AND HOW MAYBE OTHER DRAGONS EXPECTED TOOTHLESS TO DIE OUT LIKE THE REST OF HIS KIND ESPECIALLY BEING A DOWNED DRAGON BUT SOMEHOW HE SURVIVES ANYWAY THROUGH THAT SHEER STUBBORNNESS HE SHARES WITH HICCUP JUST UGH TAKE THIS MOVIE AWAY FROM MEEEEEE
the creative process life is going …. well, it’s going. aha it was goin a bit slow there for a while but ever since i saw this movie i have a mILLION AND ONE IDEAS FOR DRAWINGS that will hopefully actually get drawn y’know?
ooh i wanna hear about httyd AUs!! (if you’re willing to share)
and yes dragons doing stupid cute things are going to be the absolute death of me and it’s honestly not fair please someone invent dragons i want them to be real
//HUGS THE BAE CLOSE// sounds good, keep it goin bae, I KNOW U CAN PUT THAT ONTO PAPER I BELIEVE IN UUUUUU i get the feel man, time needs to be taken yo
AND IDK MUCH ABOUT HTTYD AUs BESIDES a modern one with dragon riding still the norm and Toothless still being the last Night Fury and Hiccup wanted by the CIA for having Toothless as a racing dragon AND THEY HAVE ADVENTURES FLYING AROUND THE WORLD BC FUCK DA POPO. BUT I SNUFFED THE THOUGHT BEFORE IT COULD TAKE OVER MY THOUGHT PROCESS SO THATS THE ONLY ONE I HAVE SOB instead i mourned the lack of NON-JACK FROST RELATED HTTYD FICS ON AO3 AND HOW THERE’S NO HUMAN VERSIONS OF TOOTHLESS THAT ARENT PASTY ANIME BOYS WTF IS UP WITH THAT I WANT ONE WITH EBONY DARK SKIN AND SCALE FRECKLES DAMNIT AND IM SURE ASS HELL NOT TALENTED ENOUGH TO BE THE ONE WHO PUTS IT ON THE TABLE
l m a o bae im tellin you i watched that movie twice, first for the plot and second jUST TO WATCH TOOTHLESS THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE MOVIE. JUST TOOTHLESS. AND HIS FACE AND HIM DOING TOOTHLESS THINGS. LIKE HAVING SOME SECRET DRAGON HANDSHAKE-NOD THING AND CHASING STORMFLY AROUND A ROCK LIKE NO STOP THIS IS TOO CUTE FOR ME I CANT HANDLE THIS M GONNA DIE its so not fair youre right dragons need to be real i wanna find the purpose of my existence while flying dragonback damnit this movie just all around made me a crying mess ugh
AU where instead of slashing him in half, Kanda just bitchslapped Alma out of his murderous rampage and they both live. Them meeting other exorcists and adjusting to the fact that family includes more than just the two of them in their tiny world now. Kanda gains a sense of humor and Alma becomes a little more cautious of his emotions and they sort out their past and stay platonic besties. They become exorcists ironically and kill things with a fuck-da-popo vibe. Kanda smiling being a regular thing. Alma becoming a flirt. Alma alive. Wow.
Do not fall in love with people like me. I will take you to b-ball courts, and professional b-ball courts, and b-ball courts in space, and welcome you to the jam in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like you’re taking it into over time. I will slam you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand, why it’s the space jam. Here’s your chance, do your dance. It’s the space jam. Alright.
steve, bucky and sam going out for early-morning jogs. every time steve and bucky pass sam, they yell “ON YOUR LEFT” and “ON YOUR RIGHT” respectively. sam gets increasingly frustrated. but after a while, steve and bucky realise they haven’t passed sam again, and he’s nowhere to be seen. and they start to get worried, fearing the worst, until suddenly they hear a shout “ON YOUR ABOVE, ASSHOLES” as sam swoops overhead, leaving them behind
Honestly, I’m really only interested in soulmate AUs with alternative plots.
I don’t really care about person A and person B who have each other’s names on their wrists and find each other and live happily ever after. I care about a culture where people don’t bother forming romantic relationships with anyone other than their soulmate, where they finally find their soulmate and realize they don’t know how to handle the ups and downs of a relationship.
I care about people who fall in love with someone who isn’t their soulmate and aren’t willing to leave.
I care about queer people who are outed by the names on their arms, about trans people who spend their whole lives worrying that their birth name will be on their soulmate’s arm, then sobbing in relief when it’s not.
I care about people in poly relationships and how that looks.
I care about asexual aromantic people who have a name anyway and wonder if they’re broken or if it’s the platonic soulmate they’ve always wanted.
I care about people who Google their soulmate and are disappointed by what they find. I care about the private detective agencies that rake in cash to help people find their soulmates. I care about the ways non-soulmate couples are discriminated against, from disapproving grandmas to insurance companies that won’t insure someone’s spouse unless they’re their soulmate. I care about teenagers who are devastated that their celebrity crush isn’t their soulmate and what happens when the media discovers a young, unknown person whose soulmate is hugely famous.
I care about the people who never meet their soulmates, whose soulmates died young, whose soulmates have another name on their arms.
I care about the ways that this is a broken system, how it fucks people up, how it doesn’t guarantee a happy ending and how people find their happy endings anyway.
