No one expected the house Hiccup Horrendous Haddock was sorted into.
He was from a Viking Clan after all. Viking's were honest, loyal, proud, brave, united, and loud, of course. They could swing hard and swig harder. Vikings were Gryffindors and Hufflepuffs and to be sorted into any other house proved you lacked True Vikings Spirit.
Vikings didn't go into Ravenclaw. That was a place for Greeks and scholars and those pompous Englishmen.
Vikings certainly didn't go into Slytherin. A Roman would be more suited for such a place of backward dealings, craftiness and lies.
Hiccup could handle the shock of his classmates (a Horrendous Haddock? In Slytherin? How could he ever expect to take over as chief?) and he could handle his father's disappointment in those short-worded letters. Hiccup was always a bit of a loner and the Slytherin lifestyle catered to that just fine. Everyone in Slytherin minded their own business more or
A Character Point on AstridHear ye, hear ye, HTTYD fandom! Let's just get one thing straight about Astrid's character:A Character Point on Astrid2 years ago in Personal More Like This
She does not try to hide her emotions.
She does not have trouble expressing or showing emotions. She is not emotionally constipated.
If she doesn't like you, she'll let you know. If she does like you, she'll let you know. She doesn't hide behind some wall of "control". She didn't have the feelings beaten out of her by a strict upbringing.
Yes, she aims for a sense of poise and propriety that coincides with that of a viking warrior's, but she also easily loses that composure any time her emotions spike. She expresses rage, joy, fear, relief, adoration, distain, excitement, and most of them far more easily than Hiccup does. We see this in the movie and in the shorts. The very source of her character.
And yes, this may mean some of you may have to swallow that bitter pill that she wasn't hiding her secret feelings f
10 Tips for Taking Better PhotosA good photo is key to selling your plushie online. Your customer can't hold it in their hands and look at it from all angles, so it’s up to you to provide clear, sharp photos that will capture their interest and convince them to buy from you.10 Tips for Taking Better Photos3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Use a tripod. A steady camera means a sharper image, and lets you concentrate on framing the shot. You can get a small, simple, perfectly satisfactory tripod for about $10, or in a pinch you can prop your camera on a flat surface If for some reason you are obliged to hold the camera, grasp it with both hands, draw your elbows in until they touch, press your arms as tightly as possible to your chest, and hold your breath while snapping the photo.
2. Unlike most subjects, plushies aren't going to fidget, so you have plenty of time to compose your shot (if your plushie does start fidgeting, run away as fast as you can and call an exorcist). Make sure the plushie is centered and fills up most of the frame. Most c

Hi! This is the homepage/base for a brand new project - the one hundred fans collaboration. The idea is this - each fan contributes one drawing of a chosen Marvel hero or villain and then an editor puts them all together on a software programme to form an awesome poster showing group love for Marvel. No great artistic ability is need, this is supposed to be fun, but the submissions have to follow a few rules:
1. The figure must be full colour.
2. All forms of media can be used; markers, paints, digital, coloured pencils - whatever !
3. Figure must be against a white background and have no scenery around them.
4. Only one figure may be submitted by each participating fan.
5. The editor (whoever volunteers) may, of course, also submit their own work.
6. If you wish to submit, please post your intention and chosen character in t
PS4I was wrong and Sony pulled a Nintendo to announce the PS4 way earlier than I anticipated. Of course they will have more details at E3, and they didn't reveal too much about the system, but the fact that they announced it this early was definitely a surprise to me.PS42 years ago in Personal More Like This
They revealed a number of interesting features about the system which, I must admit, are pretty damn amazing. I love the concept of being able to stream your PS4 games on your VITA from anywhere. That's a system selling concept right there, and it kinda beats Nintendo at the whole "play away from the TV with the Wii U pad" idea. (psst! Nintendo! Make an app for the 3DS that streams Wii U games to the console! hurry!)
I also really like the idea of being able to record your gameplay and stream it to people while you're still playing it. I can see that becoming a really big thing for gamers, especially on YouTube where "let's plays" are really popular.
The system also won't block used games, like everyone was fearing it might,

That awkward moment when you taking notes on what ultimatily lead to the war of 1812 and you end up writing this:
America, Great Britian, and France: Love Triangle, with America being the main goal. Which ultimatly lead to the War of 1812.
Not because you wanted too.
but your teacher SAID too.
Or that awkward moment when you teacher says:
"Great Britian wanted more of the Attension from America when it invovled trade, and didnt like how they were trying to mend there relations with France. Kinda like a jealous girlfriend... huh?"
Not because you pretend to hear it.
But Because your teacher said it.
That awkward moment when I start to understand why people "pair" Hetalia countries...
Not because you fully understand these "pairings"
But because they actually were said by an AP U.S History teacher.
that is all.

This is just an idea right now! And Note: I AM NOT THE ONE MAKING THE PLUSHIES!
Do you ever want a cute little Kitten plushie? A Kiya plushie? Bani? Spotty? Rea? Wyeth? Blue? Splash? anyone else?
*Note: This is an idea, we are asking if people are simply interested in this first before asking the artists permission to sell work, so some characters may not be available if the owner declines the offer*
The Plushies would look like this!
They would be in a cube format just like this. Super soft, made in Fleece or Minky; about 4 inches in height and width; and super cuddable.
(Prices may change) This would range around $25 each, including shipping. We would be able to accept paypal and snail mail. *PO Box*
*Remember how much the supplies cost and how much time it takes to make.; plus the
