...exist for a reason."No, seriously guys, why are you looking at me like that?"
Jack doesn't seem to understand that one simple fact, nor does he understand the weird looks he gets walking around in the snow wearing lighter robes and sans scarf or sweater. Even Hiccup, who hails from a place "a few degrees south of Freezing to Death" and is therefore somewhat used to horribly cold winter weather, knows the value of bundling up a bit. Course, that could also be because he's a walking toothpick, but the end result is the same.
What they're doing out in this weather, I don't really know. Perhaps Gobber needs some help with some new creatures or something. Hiccup's one of his best students, so he asked him to come down. Rapunzel volunteered to come and lighten the load a bit because she's sweet that way. Merida's there for her friends and because she's curious about what Gobber's gotten this time, and Jack's got nothing better to do and an interest in not being taken by surprise in class (Gobber's teaching methods make this a very reasonable ambition indeed).
Drawn for the contest at
- the Big Four at Hogwarts. I found out about the contest the day after I did my last Hogwarts-AU pic (which was intended, at the time, to be the ONLY one I ever did). Contest rules require a new picture, meaning one drawn after sending in notice that one intends to compete. I started thinking about it and then this little scene walked into my head. I figured I might as well.
Deadline is actually June 1st. We'll see how it goes.
