[at the enchanted forest talking with Northuldran parents]
Northuldran Mom: My girls are crazy, they won't stop trashing our hut.
Northuldran Dad: Please, you think that's crazy? My boys fight with sticks while they ride on reindeers.
Northuldran Mom: Ha! My girls have nearly destroyed our hut at least 5 times.
Elsa, drinking her 10th plain black coffee: Jack is pretending he has amnesia, Eugene is only speaking backwards, Kristoff passionately discusses politics with reindeers, Namaari’s serlot leaves about a bucket of fur a day, Raya says wearing clothes is against her religion, Hiccup won't stop talking to people on commercials about his life problems, Rapunzel has covered all the walls of the house with constellation paintings, Merida and Moana make cow noises everytime I speak, Anna has about ten imaginary friends she talks to, and everytime Cassandra takes a shower she yells "LET ME DROWN!" over and over again at the top of her lungs.
Northuldran Mom: How are you even able to be here?
Elsa: I’m here for my date with Honeymaren, Raya and Namaari wanted to come to the house so I asked Astrid and the Guardians to take care of them.
Elsa: But I'm sure I'm gonna come home to find the whole block has been burned down.

What are we crying about today in the Httyd fandom? How about Hiccup and Toothless in Httyd 1 and if Toothless realizes how much he matters to Hiccup in the first movie!
Because here you have this boy, this Viking boy, who doesn't fit in and actually refuses to fit in. Because he doesn't want to change, he wants to be accepted for who he is because he knows he can never fit in the way they want him to.
Stoick has certainly tried to make him fit in, but he does so by attempting to steer Hiccup away from what he wants to do in order to prove himself. A.k.a no dragon training, no coming out during raids, etc.
Then there is Gobber, who also wants Hiccup to fit in the Viking way, but he does it by having Hiccup do exactly what he wants to do, but in the Viking way. A.k.a convince Stoick to let Hiccup join dragon training so he can train together with the other Viking kids, do his job at the forge, etc.
But Hiccup knows that he can't lift a hammer, that he can't swing an axe, that he can't even use a couple of bolas. So he tries and tries to prove himself as a dragon killer with his inventions, saying that it's for popularity's sake, that his life will be better, that he might even have a shot with Astrid.
And then Option C comes along and that is Toothless.
Toothless, who accepts Hiccup for who he is when he knows these few things about him:
He's actually a friendly.
Tries to fix his mistakes.
Listens to Toothless.
And Hiccup's attempts to fit in on Berk stop immediately. Because one person accepting him for who he is was enough to Hiccup. Just one.
I could go on and on about how sad it is that Hiccup's attempts were big enough for an entire village to notice, (Like, he could've gone after any dragon, but he decides to go after a Night Fury of all things?) when apparently one person looking at him and going "yeah, you're allowed to exist the way you are right now" was enough to stop any and all further attempts to fit in.
But instead I want to consider this and focus on how much Toothless must've meant to Hiccup in Httyd 1 specifically.
Because Hiccup did gain popularity, he did get friends, he did "fit in", he did make his father proud, he made his entire village proud. And yet, what does he do?
He makes class end quicker to see Toothless quicker. Time spend at the forge is time spend on Toothless. If he's not drawing blueprints for Toothless, he's drawing Toothless, etc... And then he becomes the champion of his dragon killing training class and what is his first instinct?
It's to leave. It's to take Toothless and leave.
Because he knows explaining he can't kill a Monstrous Nightmare means exposing his "tricks and lies", it means exposing Toothless, the one person who truly accepts him for who he is. And Hiccup is willing to leave his village, his newfound friends, Astrid, Gobber, his own father, his “acceptance” just to keep Toothless safe.
And that while Gift of the Night Fury possibly implies that Hiccup didn't even believe Toothless was there to stay. He was willing to do all of that for just the one person who accepted him, who he thought was a very temporary thing.
