that will sound dumb, rude and kinda morbid but it seems you were right to worry about that doctors appointment.

You know, you don't have to wait real time for the inter-chapter period. But really, I just binge read this entire story, and I demand a completion! It's really good.

I am really looking forward to this story moving forward again. I know we will not be disappointed. Thank you for your outstanding work!

Hooray! I was really hoping for some good HiccupxAstrid stories to start popping up once HTTYD2 had them getting engaged, but I have unfortunately not found any so far.
Too many of them are using marriage contracts, almost-rape and other such detestable things/cliches even though they have perfectly good canon romance to build from.
I was really disappointed that the second movie focused so very little on Hiccup and Astrid growing closer together/getting engaged/getting married and had hoped fanfiction would fill that romance-void, but alas.
Until now! I'm not sure if you really plan to go in depth with the romance, but you've already covered more than the movies, so even if you keep it at the same level, I would be greatly pleased.

When did 'mead' become 'meade'? Is this a malfunction of your spellchecker? There isn't really any alternate spelling for 'mead' that I know of...

I'm noticing you have a definite wall-of-text syndrome in this story. Your readability is quite good, but it could be improved by making your paragraphs shorter, splitting the oversized ones in two where appropriate.
I liked Hiccup and Toothless flying really high. I wonder if he could come up with some kind of breathing aid to get around the thin air problem a little bit, though the possibility seems remote with the technology level Hiccup has access to. The telepathy thing is also interesting. Should be interesting to see where that leads.

Nice. I like how all the time Hiccup has spent with Toothless and gaining confidence from being good at flying has left its mark on his psyche, enough to be noticeable by the others. Looking forward to see how it will go from here.
Keep up the good work!

You call this a retelling in the author's notes, but Dragon training being postponed makes it AU, so it's really more of a re-imagining? At least I hope that this divergence will cause some interesting ripples.

Darn! I should've read the latest update before actually reading the story. -_-;; Now I'm hooked! And I know it'll probably feel weird reading this all over again, considering that you'll be changing some parts of the story. Not that I'm against it. I actually say, "Go for it!"
Judging from how the preceeding chapters were well-written, I'll hold on to your word. Man! I rarely leave a review but this... I regret not stumbling into this sooner!

I hope you'll keep updating, this is a great story.
