Stoick: “Val! Val! It’s alright, it’s alright… We’re a team now. Now what do you want to do?” Valka: “We have to save the dragons!” Stoick: “Aye, you got it! Come on, son!”
This part is so important. Stoick has always been the leader, no matter what. He always made decisions for everyone, he has always been the leader and, more than anything else, has always been proud and firm on his role. He’s the boss: he takes the decisions. But now, here, side by side with his beloved one he asks for her command. He’s not the leader here, they’re a team. What Valka wants to do? And this is so important and deep from him, because he knows she had taken her decisions alone for twenty years and no matter who he is and what is his role back home, he is in Valka’s realm now, and Valka’s alone… He just wants to remind her that now he’s there with her. He offers her all of himself with so much respect, it is wonderful how much we can see his love for Val. He even answer to her words with “Aye" like you do with your captain, and this is so powerful and sweet from him. Valka is his queen.
H.H. Holmes was an American physician who is known to have murdered between twenty and two hundred people. During his schooling at the University of Michigan Medical School, Holmes began to steal bodies from the lab and take out bogus insurance policies on them. He would then disfigure the corpses and claim they had been in an accident so that he could cash out the policies. Holmes moved to Chicago and began to associate with nefarious characters. He also became a polygamist, keeping three wives at the same time, none of whom knew about the others. After swindling a widow out of her husband’s pharmacy business, Holmes built a huge hotel that took up three store fronts and resembled a castle. He forced his employees to take out life insurance policies in which he was the beneficiary, and then he started murdering them to collect the money. Holmes favored female victims, and his employees and hotel guests frequently disappeared. Since the Chicago World Fair was taking place, it was not altogether unusual for people to come and go in the Chicago area, so his crimes went unnoticed for quite some time. In the hotel, Holmes had built rooms that were rigged with gas lines, along with airtight vaults and other horrific torture devices. He would torture and kill people in the basement, then dismember some of the bodies and sell their organs and skeletons to medical research labs. After he was finally caught, Holmes was sentenced to death by hanging in 1897. Holmes’ hanging was gruesome; his neck didn’t break. Instead, he strangled to death over the course of fifteen to twenty minutes. [x]
On being asked if she is a feminist (in light of stars such as Shailene Woodley, Lady Gaga, and Kelly Clarkson rejecting the label): “I don’t think they really understood what feminism is. It’s a right. Feminism, to me, is standing up for everything that someone else has already done for you. My mom has overcome so much in her life. She makes me want to stand up for myself. Stand up to the studio heads who try to tell me that I can’t have blonde hair; they want brown hair. Or I need bigger boobs, or I need to work out. Or I’m too skinny, so, like, ‘Eat a cheeseburger.’ I stand up for myself every day of my life. I grew up in a family of four boys. I’m, like, a born feminist. I’ve been a feminist since I was four years old.” - Chloe Grace Moretz
