What if, even though he hugged and smiled and trusted because he’s Hiccup, he still doubted the truth of Valka’s words. Did he really have a mother after all this time? And that smile, that little smile he has when his parents kiss for the first time in his living memory, is that little sliver of doubt dissipating into nothingness as he realizes he was right to trust after all. Because seeing his father so in love meant it couldn’t be anything but true.
I forgot to post this but a recent winner drew this for Chalkfest. They are amazing.
Running away from my responsibilities like
Gobber is the gay character in the HTTYD universe, but it’s not technically canon that he is. It was revealed in an interview that the comment Gobber made about not marrying - “That, and one other thing” - was alluding to the fact that Gobber is gay. Craig Ferguson ad libbed the line while recording, and he and Dean DeBlois decided that it was canon. They didn’t put anything else into the film, exactly why I’m not sure, but it didn’t fit in to add much else. But Dean DeBlois has said that he would like to explore this a bit more in the third film, and is working on incorporating more about Gobber’s sexuality into it. So in answer to your concern, there is no explicit canon confirmation that Gobber is indeed gay, but by word of God canon it is. source
