Hiccup wanted so desperately to be with the icy haired boy he’d seen on the beach. He wanted to know what it was like to escape the murky confines of the ocean and to feel the warm embrace of another. Away from his father, away from those that rejected him, he wanted out. Hiccup struggled against the rock, if only he could stand upright, like the boy. If only he could speak like the boy, understand the same language, the same tongue. Then they could be together.
So yeah, one stray line lead to another and this popped out. I never do line art on Photoshop and elements doesn’t have a pen tool… sooooo yeah! Mermaid AU! No legs for hiccup, and because he’s a mermaid they wouldn’t be able to talk to each other because different languages and uses of vocal chords? So hiccup wouldn’t really speak in words, but sounds? It’d be cute to see how they worked it out. That’s my thinking.
