Hicrid Typography by MrsZeldaLink Hicrid Typography by MrsZeldaLink
Hiccup x Astrid...it's called different things. ~Simtiff told me it's mostly called Hicrid. (Which is good for my purposes - the shorter the better.)

Sooo...my second attempt at amateur typography. Here's for all the Hicrid fans I don't know! ^^; I'm such a stranger in the How To Train Your Dragon fandom. >.<

Anywho...

~Simtiff helped me a bit with this, giving me the phrase to put in red letters. :)

Some notes I want to add:

:bulletblack:Lots of these are quotes from the movie, as you know, and some are just made up as fillers. (I was running out!)
:bulletblack:Sorry if I left out any good movie quotes I could have added, it's been a long day and my brain doesn't want to work anymore.
:bulletblack:These aren't really in any specific order; just pretty much random.
:bulletblack:Ek ann thér means "I love you" in Old Norse (or at least that's what all the sites I googled said). And kyssa means "kiss" in Old Norse. Sorry if I didn't use the proper words or something, that language is foreign to me. >.< Thank God for Google!

Aww....it's not really called Hicrid, honey. Hicstrid is the only one, really.


I love it, though!

Well, I've only seen the movie. I haven't read the books, researched Viking culture, history, or Old Norse like some other people. So, compared to them, I'm pretty oblivious. ^^;

Thanks! :D

And I don't think it's from a song...I dunno, ~Simtiff thought it up.

Hunh. I like this quite a bit. Particularly the red phrase strung through it, and the way you ordered it so that it flows through the progression of their relationship like a poem.

She's got the hiccups, all right. :heart:

This is awesome, but i've always heard it being HicStrid. (i prefer that one, to be honest) but this is still very nice!

Yeah, I call it that as well *as seen in my signature*, but Hicrid was one less letter to do so I went ahead with it.

...It's called Hicrid?

I always thought it was Asscup.

*is shot*

*is joking*

Nice compilation you've got there. I adore how the I is dotted with "go!" XD

Oh, I know, it sounds... YUCK. XD

One of my friends, who isn't a HTTYD buff, spouted that number when I was explaining the concept of pairings.

"Toothcup: the pairing of Hiccup and Toothless"

"Um...what? Oh, so Astrid and Hiccup... would be Asscup?"

"...Sure."

Of course, for obvious reasons, that one hasn't caught on. XDXD

Seriously, HTTYD pairings though... They can be effing hilarious, if you just do it blunt like that. XD

No, though, lovely work (typography is an under-appreciated art form). And I just noticed, that in the thumbnail, that little "Go" looks like a heart. XD

Hahaha! :laughing: The closest I've ever come to anything like that is thinking about Hiccup accidentally calling Astrid "Ass" for short and then getting beat up. :XD: But I bet many fans have thought up that.

I whoa, I just noticed the heart thing myself. :O
Thanks again. :)

AHH! Unf, the designer in me is just squeezing out about this and ESPECIALLY because I love typographic art and you mashed the two and not only is it just random words but there's a flow of coherence to them which can be SO HARD to get down doing this 'type' of thing, heh heh.

I congratulate you AND I appreciate this. It's going to my best collection :heart:

Only cause I was roped into being a co-founder of a good portion of the general HTTYD fan groups ^^;
I'm honored you feel honored :XD:

Oh and I forgot to say what I really liked was how I got a montage in my head of the scenes as I hit the quotes :D

Well you're also one of the top artists in my opinion. :) And you seem really dedicated to HTTYD.

Oh, I'm glad you did. c: I was afraid placing them in there at random spots would not turn out that well. ^^;
