And once you move back in, with all of your dragons, 
Drago won’t even stand a chance.
Everything will be okay!

Slow down, son. It’s a lot to take in.

Hiccup looks like he’s hitting a high note on an improv musical number in that 1st gif there.

But nefertsukia​, can we talk about the lovely body language, and how father and son are finally communicating with just a glance and a few gestures? Can we compare it to the broken, terrible, heart-wrenching silence that stretched between the two in the first film, the barrier between them they couldn’t seem to scale no matter how hard they tried? Now look at them here, Stoick knowing how Hiccup is feeling and what he is thinking, with his eyes and his hands communicating that he needs to slow down, calm his enthusiasm. Hiccup looking his father in the eyes, listening, letting himself be comforted by the gentle gestures Stoick is touching him with.

This gif set shows in a handful of frames, without needing words, just how different Stoick and Hiccup’s relationship is in this film compared with the first. The talent and dedication and art and love that went into the body language of this film never fails to amaze me.
