On Tumblr… with graffiti
Hiccup's ambitions lay outside of the classroom. He's preoccupied with work, personal projects, the garage… even in school his mind is fixed on what advancements he can make to his bike.
To his classmates, he seems little more than an underachieving son of a wealthy governor. Someone who wastes the privileges and opportunities of his fortune fiddling around in the back of classes with his notebook.
I have a lot of opinions on modern!Hiccup, okay?This post
on tumblr spurred me to revisit some old modern!HTTYD ideas
Hiccup has braces to fix that little gap tooth. He does not have glasses. His eyes are fine
He is not a "hipster". His style is simplistic and functional
put effort into his hair. The only thing he styles.
A lot of his clothes are worn and ripped from working in the garage so much
He's from a well-off family but he prefers to work and support himself as much as he can
He really values his independence and privacy
He may or may not be involved in some hacking and over-the-top advancements to motorcycles and the like. His "personal projects" sometimes border on dangerous.
Hiccup is not a dork. He is a "nobody" and mostly by choice. He has friends, people like him.
Let's translate his character
over to the modern world, people, not his role as a modern teen in a Viking world
