Sorry about the on-and-off thing.
I never really completely sign off...
So there's always a chance that you can find me. Usually it's a small one, but there's always a chance...
I used to watch How to Train Your Dragons. I literally owned and watched everything up to Race to the Edge season 3 or 4. (I forgot where it's up to) Anyways, I enjoyed it for a while, but I think I lost interest in it after that. I love the chicken episode. I have all the books too, I reread all of them five times. It's true. So yeah, the chicken was amused, but now... eh...
Have you guys noticed how the TV versions and the book series are almost COMPLTETELY different?
MAJOR SPOILERS IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE BOOK OR WATCHED THE MOVIE
Toothless is a small, green, stubborn, dragon that's selfish, can't fight, and actually turns out to be a Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus.
Hiccup is the most wimpy person possible who turns out to be able to use a sword, speak dragonese, never exactly gets the girl (though they hint at it), and he becomes the king of ALL the Vikings. Oh yeah, he also put up with...
Snoutlout, he is Hiccup's insufferable cousin who hates him because he's the first in line for chief. He's about the worst possible bully you can get without having someone murder you. Poor Hiccup... Anyways, he does have a change of heart in the end, and goes off into battle. Then unfortunately dies at the hands of a witch and her warty son... It made me cry the first three or so times.
The Vikings, the book pretty much portrays them as half-stupid-half-fat-another-half-beard people. Until book nine or eight, the ones you see are either trying to, eat Hiccup, kill Hiccup, sacrifice Hiccup to a monster, poison Hiccup, feed Hiccup to a monster, make fun of Hiccup, and sometimes, just sometimes be a bit compassionate. In their own brutishly clueless way...
Alvin the Terrible. It was strange that he didn't make it as the main villain in the movies.. He is, after all, only the wartiest, meanest, ugliest, terrible..est, guy who eventually becomes an evil baldy. Oh yeah, he's REALLY important when it comes to the books.
Oh, then there's Fishlegs. He's probably the most absurd character of all. Allergies include dragons, and pretty much anything else. He has jelly arms, doesn't know how to fight, never really has a heroic moment in his life, and somehow turns out to be SUPER DUPER SPOILER!!! (whispers) Alvin's son. Then he gets a three-headed dragon. Nice turn of events for him, huh?
Here are some characters who do NOT exist:
Astrid. As in, never-mentioned-not-even-once
Ruffnut, actually maybe it was Tuffnut, anyways, there's no twins, just one character who only appears briefly in book one.
Johann, that sailor/trader in the TV series, I don't think he was ever mentioned.
Okay, the Berserks exist in the books, but Dagur, unfortunately, does not.
Neither does his sister, SPOILER Heather. Ha, ha, ha!!!
Sorry to you, @Matt_Bonnetfolly1, neither Vigo, nor his brother are in the books either.
Also, I don't think that that weird ninja society that worships that volcano dragon thing is real either. I may be wrong because that's where I stopped watching.
Anyways, there's like ten more, but I just realized that I've forgotton so much about this, so I don't want to risk giving you guys bad information. If you guys noticed that I have, just notify me here.
(I totally understand cutting dragonese out of the movies though. That would have been weird...)
