When they are six, Ruffnut tells Astrid that Tuffnut had heard from some of the older boys that babies came from two people kissing.
"Don't be stupid, that's not how it works," Astrid says.
"How do you know?" Ruffnut counters.
"People kiss a lot! That doesn't make them have babies."
"It might. People who kiss have babies too. I've seen it."
"You're wrong," Astrid insists.
"Am not," Ruffnut says, crossing her arms.
"Are so. Watch." Astrid leans forward and kisses her. When they separate, both girls look at each other for a few seconds, then look down at Ruffnut's belly.
"See!" Astrid cries triumphantly. "You're not going to have baby!"
"That's because you have to be a boy, dummy," Ruffnut says, sticking out her tongue.
"I can do anything a boy can do," Astrid says confidently. "Boys are stupid anyway."

"Hey, you. Nadder-girl," someone said, and Astrid looked around curiously. Sure enough, there was the barmaid scowling at her, which was irritating on multiple levels, not the least of which was the fact that Astrid knew she knew their names perfectly well, she just refused to use them. Although to be fair, Ruff, Tuff, and Lout called her a wench all the time, and they were the ones who started bringing dragons into the bar, and it was usually someone from their group who had to be dragged out of the bar at the end of the night...
Shit. Astrid suddenly realized why the barmaid was calling her.
"Come get your friend," the barmaid said, and Astrid's stomach sank. "I'm not putting up with her today."
"It's barely noon," Astrid protested.
"Yeah, well that's the problem, isn't it?" She turned and walked back into the bar, leaving Astrid standing

Summary: Three years after the events of the movie, Astrid makes a choice.
Astrid had been out of sorts lately.
She wasn't sure why. Nothing had really changed. Hiccup was still Hiccup, kind, intelligent, and awkwardly self-confident. Ruffnut was still vain, crazy, and wild. And the guys still teetered the line between being amusing and being annoying. The only thing that seemed to have changed was Astrid. It was confusing, and frustrating, and the only thing she knew was that she had to do something about it.
Of course Hiccup could tell. He bore the brunt of her bad moods, obviously. And he wanted to talk about it, had been trying to get her to increasingly often over the past few weeks. She always brushed him off, because how could you have a talk when you had no idea what to say? Well, he'd get his talk tod

"Yes I am." Ruffnut made to brush by Astrid.
Astrid quickly stepped to the side to intercept her, raising her open palm in a stalling motion. "No, you're not."
Ruffnut rolled her eyes. "Watch me." She tried to move forward again, but Astrid grabbed her arm.
"You're pretty stupid sometimes, but even you're not that stupid."
"Why, thank you, Astrid. Have I mentioned I really, really don't care what you think? Now let go."
Ruffnut reached up to pry Astrid's fingers off, and Astrid responded by giving her a hard jerk, momentarily knocking her off balance. "I really, really don't care either, but there's no way in Hel I'm letting you run off now."
"Gods, Astrid, lighten up! You're not in charge of me." Ruffnut twisted her arm suddenly, wrenching it from Astrid's grasp, and tried to make a run

When they are six, Tuffnut tells Ruffnut that babies are made when two people kiss. She, in turn, tells Astrid, but Astrid doesn't believe her, and kisses Ruff to prove it.
Sure enough, Ruffnut's belly does not swell like she's seen on some of the women. Astrid takes this as a sign that Tuffnut is, once again, just being a stupid boy. Ruffnut kind of thinks Astrid did it wrong, but then they're off to the next game, and she forgets.
Later that evening though, she remembers. She gets nervous, and then she gets scared, because maybe it doesn't matter that Astrid's not a boy, and maybe she did it right after all, and Ruff doesn't want a baby. She's quiet and distracted during dinner, and when their father takes Tuff to the creek for a bath, their mother pulls Ruffnut to the side and asks her what's wrong.

Hiccup almost winced when he saw that Astrid was the only one standing at their meeting spot near the edge of the village. They had more or less been avoiding each other for the past week, and what encounters they had were stilted and awkward. He hadn't been able to bring himself to tell anyone about the whole breakup thing yet, and apparently she hadn't either, because no one was treating them any differently. And it wasn't exactly uncommon for Hiccup to spend a few days hiding from Astrid after some blowup or other. Still, too much more of this and people would start figuring it out on their own.
He supposed it could be worse. It's not like he collapsed into uncontrollable tears every time he saw her. True, there was a dull ache in his chest that flared up in her presence, but it wasn't like the epic stories made it out to be.

Astrid slipped out of Ruffnut's grip yet again.
"Dammit! Did you cover yourself with oil or something?"
"Your holds need work."
"I'll show you work, you -- GAH, ow, getoff getoff ASTRID GET OFF!"
Astrid released her hold on the other girl and stepped back. "What?"
"That's what!" Ruffnut said, pointing to Astrid's leather skirt and rubbing her legs where the metal spikes had dug in. "This is why I don't like practicing grappling with you. It's like you're trying to repel an attack on your nether region."
"Wow," Astrid said, glancing down, "only your mind would go there."
"That's exactly what it's like, so shut up. Seriously, what purpose does that serve other than making it really hard for someone to sit in your lap?"
"Maybe anyone who's presumptuous enough to sit in my lap deserves it."
"Aw, I'm sorry Astrid, are the invisible suitors bothering you again?"

Hiccup stiffened before he realized the voice calling his name wasn't the one he'd been bracing himself for all week, or even male, although it was familiar. He turned around and saw Astrid's mother bustling towards him.
"Hey, Mrs. Hofferson," he said somewhat weakly, more than a little surprised to see her, and realizing it was because although he and Astrid had been getting together on a fairly regular basis lately, he hadn't seen either of her parents in a while.
"Hello dearie," Mrs. Hofferson said with a familiar, affectionate smile. Slightly unnerved, Hiccup nevertheless slowed his pace and allowed her to accompany him down the street. "And how have you been lately?" she asked.
"Er, fine," Hiccup said.
Mrs. Hofferson nodded as though he had revealed some deep wisdom, and said, "And your father? How is the chief holding up these days?"

Tuffnut, as he had been doing a lot these days, popped up out of seemingly nowhere. "Hey Hiccup," he said.
"Hey, Tuff," Hiccup replied, barely wincing at all.
Tuffnut leaned casually against a nearby wall. "So I was thinking of going fishing later. You should come."
"Should I?" Hiccup asked, looking at the shops around them for some kind of distraction.
"Yeah. It should be fun." Tuffnut's eyes briefly tracked up and down Hiccup's body. "Maybe we could go swimming."
Sweet Thor. "Um..."
"Hey guys!" Snotlout called as he walked up.
"Lout, hey! Hey man, what's up?" Hiccup said in relief as Tuffnut scowled.
"Not too much," Snotlout said, looking back and forth between them. "What're you guys up to?"
"We're going fishing," Tuff said.
Hiccup looked at him sharply. "I never actually agreed to that."

Tuffnut was sure he had woken up in a good mood that morning. He was in a good mood a lot recently, for one very specific reason. But being around Ruffnut had steadily wiped the smile from his face. Apparently being pissy was catching.
"Did you take care of the dragons today?" he asked as they wandered through the village. He didn't think she had any real destination in mind, but in a fit of brotherliness he had decided to go with her anyway. He was regretting that.
She just grunted at his question.
"You check out the herds at the arena yet?"
She grunted again.
"You wanna go shopping or something?"
"...you gonna say actual words anytime soon?"
She pushed him, and he shoved her back. "Charming," he said sarcastically, then sighed heavily. "Frozen Hel, I wish you would just get over it already. Or do somet
