I see them as a brotp. Honestly, Eretstrid as a romantic pairing makes no sense to me. I mean,
…I certainly can’t.
But if you can, that’s cool too. I believe in free shipping
#no i don’t ship eretstrid romantically#they’re better off as bros tbh#but hiccstrid was so well done in the movie that I can’t possibly ship them with anyone but each other#they have so much substance whereas eretstrid would be merely based on attraction
Thank you! And it’s an attraction I see no grounds for, tbh. They’re bros for me. They have common grounds, what with the fighting skills and whatnot, and also their temperaments. I’m sure he admires Astrid’s skills and her tenacity and dedication, and she admires Eret’s openness and his change of heart probably reminded her of her own.
How can that be scrambled into romance? Not everything has to be romanticised. There’s enough romance between Hiccup and Astrid XD I wanted a bro for Hiccup (a human, male bro with whom he has no romantic or familial feelings for), but Eret seems more like Astrid’s bro… i dunno. He seems pretty willing to delve into this strange world with dragons. :) and I’m sure he’s seen something different in dragons before. He’s trapped so many. He probably just brushed it off, though… I wonder.
