* ArrangedMarriage: Between [[spoiler:Snotlout and Camicazi]], to the girl's displeasure, [[spoiler:as Hiccup found out, painfully.]]

to:

* ArrangedMarriage: Between [[spoiler:Snotlout and Camicazi]], to the girl's displeasure, [[spoiler:as Hiccup found out, painfully. When Camicazi lies to Hiccup about taking contraceptive, and has his child, Snotlout nullifies the marriage with relief.]]



* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:Camicazi in ''Without A Hitch'' conceives a child with Hiccup, a little girl named Alivia.]]
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Astrid only wanted to best Hiccup in training, and she outs him as a fraud. This makes her the prize Dragon Training pupil, like she wanted. Only problem? Being the best trainer means nothing when your mother is sick, the dragons are coming in droves that you can't fight off, and the village has an ElephantInTheRoom about Hiccup leaving.
* BittersweetEnding:
** Hiccup and Toothless defeat the Red Death, as they do in canon, but [[spoiler:Hiccup insists on leaving Berk and WalkingTheEarth since it's no longer home, and he and Toothless have been cursed with immortality. Stoick is heartbroken but resigned.]]
** In ''Without A Hitch'', Hiccup and Toothless [[spoiler:outlive everyone they know, and Berk falls into the sea thousands of years later. Then during Ragnorak, Toothless dies, and Hiccup barely keeps himself alive without his best friend. Fortunately, they reunite in death.]]



* CharacterDevelopment: Hiccup chooses his own path with Toothless, which leads to him meeting different peoples and learning from them, eventually becoming a badass. Astrid's character is given more emphasis to it -- instead of as in the movie, where we don't really ''know'' Astrid that well, this story takes her and rounds her out, meaning at first she is rather well... unlikable, but as the story progresses she and her struggles and goals become more sympathetic. [[spoiler:Toothless also matures, coming to trust in Hiccup as a team mate rather than someone who needs to be protected.]]

* CharacterDevelopment: CharacterDevelopment:
**
Hiccup chooses his own path with Toothless, which leads to him meeting different peoples and learning from them, eventually becoming a badass. He also becomes less impulsive as a result, and more adept in planning strategy.
**
Astrid's character is given more emphasis to it -- instead of as in the movie, where we don't really ''know'' Astrid that well, this story takes her and rounds her out, meaning at first she is rather well... unlikable, but as the story progresses she and her struggles and goals become more sympathetic.
**
[[spoiler:Toothless also matures, coming to trust in Hiccup as a team mate rather than someone who needs to be protected.]]
* ChekhovsGun:
** Astrid's axe. The Vikings in Miklagard attempt to use it to [[spoiler:execute Toothless. Later on, when Astrid is sparring with it, she remembers the scar on Hiccup's back that's identical to the axe marks.]]
** Hiccup's bond with Toothless. [[spoiler:It saves their lives several times.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Gudrid, the wisewoman who serves as a mentor to Hiccup. [[spoiler:She ends up being Gothi, the village Elder from his time who dies after he returns to Berk.
]]



* ElephantInTheRoom: After Hiccup leaves, the village doesn't really speak about his leaving out of respect for Stoick. Gobber tries to hide a sword with Hiccup's trademark detailing, though Stoick notices it, and Gobber discusses this trope.



* {{Forgiveness}}: Though he won't admit it, Stoick is terribly worried about Hiccup. In time he wants him to come back, to stay on Berk permanently despite Hiccup exiling himself.
* ForgivenButNotForgotten: Hiccup tolerates the Vikings of Miklagard after [[spoiler:they capture him and Toothless, manhandle him roughly for being snarky, split his back open while trying to kill his dragon, and then help him heal after Framherja appears and the Empress gives him and Toothless her protection.]] He's still surly around them, not willing to make small talk and such. Harold eventually gets him to mellow, but it takes a while.
* GildedCage: Hiccup's life in Miklagard while he and Toothless are grounded. [[spoiler:He and Toothless have the empress's protection and are given fine rooms and luxuries, but he has to spend most of his time recuperating and unwillingly receives a haircut. Not to mention a revolution approaches.]]



* NotBrainwashed: Hiccup tries to desperately tell the Miklagard Vikings that Toothless hasn't hypnotized him into flying with him. They don't believe him until [[spoiler:he nearly dies from the axe blow meant for Toothless, and Toothless in turn remains defensive and bossy while Hiccup is recovering]].



* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler:Even though Hiccup had an accelerated rate of recovery, the large amount of time he spent in bed recovering after TakingTheBullet caused him to lose a lot of muscle mass, forcing him to work hard to get it all back.]]

to:

* RealityEnsues: RealityEnsues:
** You can't change centuries of prejudice in a matter of days or hours. Hiccup for this reason makes it a point to hide Toothless when going into towns and villages.

* SheIsAllGrownUp: Although, it did take Hiccup getting drunk to realise/accept this of [[spoiler:Camicazi]].

to:

* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: Hiccup is insulted when the Miklagard Vikings offer to give him back his rubies and let him leave the city alive while they keep and kill Toothless.
* SequelHook:
** Hiccup is [[spoiler:cursed to live forever, thanks to Loki. He and Toothless survive to the present day.]]
** Astrid knows that [[spoiler:her axe was used to give the blow that scarred Hiccup's back.]]
** Hiccup at some point returns to Berk and the Bog Islands [[spoiler:to spend time with his child Alivia.]]
** Astrid also will eventually [[spoiler:challenge Snotlout for his position as chief since she sees herself as a more competent leader.]]
* SheIsAllGrownUp: Although, it did take Hiccup getting drunk to realise/accept realize/accept this of [[spoiler:Camicazi]].


Added DiffLines:

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Even when [[spoiler:Hiccup returns, he realizes that he can't stay on Berk. He's changed too much, and he has his mother's wandering spirit. His father reluctantly accepts that.]]

* ShownTheirWork: The author has done her homework about the historical period and the encountered languages. It shows when we have some pleasant surprises like accurate French or ''Hungarian''. Still, it is the current version of these languages, not neccessarily the ones spoken during that time period.
