!!Tropes That Appear In This Chapter:

* BiTheWay: Wulfhild has come to realize that she’s in love with Astrid and Hiccup.
* EatingContest: Mentioned as one of the popular highlights of the Thawfest; Fishlegs comes in second at the sausage-eating contest.
* FirstKiss: After Merida won the archery contest Cami in her excitement kissed her.
* HeirClubForMen: {{Downplayed|Trope}}; technically gender doesn’t matter when it comes to Hooligan inheritance laws, but women marry out of their clans so the only way women can become clan heads is if they marry clanless freedmen like what Bladewit did.
* LoveEpiphany: Wulfhild has one towards Hiccup and Astrid.
--> Because if there was one thing that she'd come to realize, it was that she loved both Hiccup and Astrid. From the frequent moments of pure friendship to the carnal bedsports they regularly indulged in, to simply being a vital member of Stoick's court, she was happy.
* NoodleIncident: Hiccup recalls one of Cami's more elaborate pranks from his childhood. No details are given except the line, "He still was not sure where Cami had found that much butter…"
* NotAMorningPerson: Astrid threatens to rip Hiccups spine out if he doesn’t stop trying to get her out of bed.
* RealityEnsues: Wulfhild doesn’t win the archery contest, as she points out she only started practicing with a bow 3 months ago while her competition have much more experience.
