About the Author:
Hiya! Ny name's Chelle. I absolutely love to write -- it's my passion. I'm obsessed with grammar and literature and pretty much everything involved in the writing process (which is ironic, because I make my fair share of sometimes deliberate and sometimes accidental errors -- as shown by the polysyndeton in the previous sentence).
My most prominent subjects for my stories are comic books, and comic-related media. I have many favorite characters -- Superman, Lois Lane, Peter Parker, Kyle Rayner, Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman. I will literally fight anyone who insults Lois Lane.
My most well-known fic is probably Daddy Issues, which is based on both the Guardians of the Galaxy movie and the comic books on which it is based. Oddly enough, that fic is unfinished, with my lack of motivation to finish attributable to my interest in my other less-popular project, Superman: Hope. I will say that I got an abundance of support for No Longer Alone and the The Helm, which are based off How to Train Your Dragon, so I am very grateful for that.
I live off of reviews, so feel free to leave them on my stories. Just be kind -- constructive criticism is fantastic, but insults are not.
Some more personal stuff, perhaps? My favorite color is purple. I'm a decided feminist. Romance novels (especially classic romance novels) are my guilty pleasure. I love to work with computers, and I own a disturbing amount of comic books. Additionally, I play tennis, debate competitively, burn anything I try to cook, and oscillate between my favorite tv show being either Parks and Recreation or Daredevil.
Thanks for reading!
This is just a character study for my story No Longer Alone. Read if you're curious about how I characterized Toothless.
Okay, I know that my Toothless is probably different from what people perceived in the movie. There's various reasons for that. In the movie, we see Toothless like more of a cat or a dog, simply because of the way he acts. But if you actually take a good look at him, he's much more intelligent than that. He understands almost everything Hiccup says, the way the tail prosthetic works, and all sorts of complex stuff that no other animals could even begin to comprehend. He even seems a lot smarter than other dragons, which is what makes him such a good foil for Hiccup, who is obviously a lot smarter than other Vikings.
Now, there are things that I added simply because I thought they made sense. The loneliness is one of them. It's not technically part of the movie, but there are reasons behind it. Toothless was the only dragon that never stole food, which leads us to believe that he was not part of the nest. So he probably lived a solitary life. Plus, as far as we know, there are no more Night Furies, which means that he is the last of his kind. So yeah, I thought loneliness was an important thing to add.
Some more important things that I added were the cutesy scenes with Hiccup. Believe it or not, they weren't just fluff. In the film, Toothless and Hiccup go from a single pat on the head to being best friends. Personally, I thought that moved too fast. With real pets, you have to build a sort of mutual trust, and with that trust comes affection. So that's what I did. Toothless loves Hiccup, and Hiccup loves Toothless--that much is evident. But I wanted to show how they got to that point. Someone doesn't just go from allowing a brief petting session to allowing someone to fly with you. By then, they must have cared a lot about each other. So I let their best friend relationship build nice and slow.
The strangest thing about Toothless is his variation between an overly critical, playful, affectionate, and defensive personality. The playfulness comes from his animalistic behaviors and probably his age, and the defensiveness comes from the survival instincts. But the criticism is from his intelligence, which is why he questions everything. And lonely people often want affection, so the same goes for dragons. These may seem like character traits that don't go together, but in reality, personality is based on a variety of sometimes conflicting attributes. After all, we often see Toothless go from the most adorable dragon in the world to the most terrifying.
Overall, the reason he seems so different from the film version is because it's hard to see him as anything other than a simple pet or animal. In reality, his personality would probably be quite multifaceted. But in the movie, you don't hear his thoughts or words, so you're making assumptions solely on the way he acts. But as I pointed out, he's very intelligent, so we must assume that there's more going on beneath the surface.
Oh, and I just assume that he has a bit of a superiority complex. He is the fastest dragon out there, after all. Who wouldn't let that go to their head?
Okay, sorry for annoying you with this! But I noticed that the Toothless I portray can be a little canon-divergent at times, and I thought I'd like to justify why.
