Hiccup the Useless vs. Stoick the Vast. Incomplete
Hiccup ran. He ran through the forest as if Hel herself was chasing him. His legs pumping like pistons and his breathing ragged, Hiccup was escaping again. He was escaping the disdain of the villagers, the harassment of his peers, and everything between himself and his dad.

His dad. Stoick the Vast, Chief of the tribe, had Hiccup for a son. A seven foot tall hero of Berk, whose roar quieted all other voices, Stoick was not simply a Chief, but a force of nature/a volcano of a man. Everything about the man was larger than life: a thick, bushy beard, a commanding gaze, and an aura of power that left other chiefs amazed. Stoick wasn’t simply born into the right family line to become Chief;Stoick was born to be a Chieftain as surely as he was born with flaming red hair and sharp green eyes. Dauntless, Stoick was confident in a way few ever were. Stoick never doubted—publicly.

The only problem Stoick appeared to have was with his lone child, Hiccup. Hiccup, who was all Stoick was not. Undersized and clumsy, Hiccup drew trouble with every breath. He caused disaster after disaster, injuring himself, crashing into people, breaking fences, and scattering sheep. Hiccup never planned for any of it to go wrong. Scrawny, but imaginative, Hiccup thought more than he fought. His ability with weapons was nonexistent. In the Hairy Hooligan tribe, thinking was secondary to physical prowess. In the opinion of his tribe, Hiccup was useless.

Stoick had no idea what to do with his son.
