Fic: Since He Could Crawl  
I gotta get more into my mod duties here. Stuff has been busy for me lately, but I'll get that fixed up and do more stuff in this community, I promise.

Anyway, I realized I still haven't posted this fic to my LJ so here it is. A big reason why I never posted it is because I wanted to edit it, but I am too busy and tired these days to go and do that, so just accept that this is not as good as I would like it to be, but I still love it enough to post it.

Title: Since He Could Crawl
Fandom: How to Train Your Dragon (movie)
Focus: Stoick and Hiccup
Rating: G
Genre: Family/drama
Summary: Pre-movie. Hiccup has always been different, and Stoic has always had a hard time connecting with him. Sometimes the hardest part of love is not knowing how to show it.
Challenge: Use a character's name only once in dialogue.
Author's notes: Firstly, this story was conceived on the drive home from my first viewing of the movie. Yes, really. Because of this, I wasn't aware that Hiccup's mother had a name in the original books, and chose Oleander for my own reasons. Please forgive me, book fans. Also, there's a small reference to Big Fish in here that no one's found yet! Keep looking!
Also, thank you to all those people who keep faving and reviewing this on FF.net. I have no idea what I've done to deserve such attention.

(The day Hiccup was born was born, a storm was raging outside. The house had creaked from the force of the winds, and the thunderclaps could be felt within his mother's and father's very bones. They took it all as a good sign; he was coming into the world amidst a flurry of activity and strength.)
