Interview a Dragon Trainer

Dragon_130UPDATE: Hiccup replied! You can read his answers to your questions here.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you found an injured dragon and tried to train it? Well, THE STACKS will be bringing in an expert who has gone through that exact experience, and you can get your questions answered! Hiccup, the Viking from the movie How to Train Your Dragon (rated PG) has agreed to answer your burning questions. (Get it? burning. . . dragon! I’m full of cleverness!) Anyway, now is your chance to ask about his experiences with wild dragons, his misunderstood life among the barbaric Vikings, and how his life has changed since the movie made him a star.

That is also date when I’ll be posting Hiccup’s answers to your questions, so check back here then!

    Are there many bugs in the sky? And if so, have you concidered goggles or would Toothless be up to “snack” them up for you?

    Dear Hiccup,
    Is there any chance you would dump Astrid and consider someone else? Cause I’m pretty sure I’m in love.
    Sincerely, Kendall

    While you invented for Toothless and to bring down dragons, how were you able to overcome setbacks so easily and keep rolling on?

    Hiccup,
    Did you ever end up finding a troll? Gobber said they’re real, so I would assume you, if anybody, would have encountered one!
