I am so happy to see an update ma'am!
That being said I think the beginning part of this shines with Stoick's thoughts, his excitement to see his son, chiding himself for doubting, etc. It's calls me back to your first rearing story and all his disappointed and hopeful thoughts. I can really feel him glowing here at the thought of his son being a real Viking finally! :D
His reconsideration of Hiccup shooting down a Night Fury was unexpected and I loved the 'boy who cried dragon line'
However, and this is probably just me, but that bit thrown in there of him actually seeing a dragon [Toothless] seemed a little out of place. You had him think about killing it but I would imagine him going straight to Viking mode about it. He just returned from a failed dragon hunt, he hates dragons, and he's proven before he doesn't listen to reason [i.e. goes off to find the nest despite warnings of his son who has *been there*] so, to me he acts a bit OOC by just leaving it though you could say he's showing some kind of reasonable mercy. Although I'd argue that Hiccup's mercy inherited from his mother's side and Stoick only does it in extreme circumstances, like when a dragon has proved it's worth by saving his son's life.
The benefit of the last part was to see Stoick's observations on Hiccup as they bonded, for sure. Although I think you could get away with not listing all dialogue verbatim because readers know what is said. Description could be a good tool to recap what is said in a new way i.e Stoick's rant of dragons and dragon killing could be, and this is just an example:
"His son's response prompted him to spill all the words he had always wanted to say. He recalled aloud the glorious feeling of slaying a Nadder and spilling it's innards, as well as a good clean Gronkle decapitation meant as a trophy on a spearhead. 'What a feeling!' He could barely contain his glee and eagerly gave his son an affectionate slug on the shoulder, which sent the boy reeling backwards[...]"
So just a tip for the next time you come across a scene with a fair amount of dialogue that the reader is already familiar with, you might consider using that aspect of storytelling. :)
You are no doubt a wonderful writer who can certainly get in and examine a character; this chapter just hasn't sparkled as much as a whole for me like your previous ones. I hope you are doing well and I can't wait for another update. Go Stoick! :3

just happened to click on my favorites list and this update popped up. I love your Stoick. His almost willful blindness in order to fit Hiccup into an understood space is perfect.

I'm so glad you brought this lovely emotion into the scene. I knew that Stoic would be saddened if Hiccup were gone but you portrayed a much truer, more parental emotion. And the part about him missing Hiccup! So, so sweet. My heart a little for him, you always show Stoic so true to form but get into his good heart and how much he loves Hiccup.

Oooo! Good chapter! You write Stoick and his thoughts very well, and the moment of panic was excellently done. _
