I accept the “Stoick saw Valka in Hiccup during the Kill ring scene in HTTYD 1 head canon” but there is one thing that doesn’t add up.
Why would he disown the image of his “late” wife immediately after?
What if Stoick only saw Valka at first, when Hiccup was talking of the philosophies that supposedly got the woman killed.  Yet, when a Night Fury, one of the most feared creatures of their world, jumps into the fray.  When it rescues Hiccup, obeys Hiccup, Stoick saw someone else.
Because who was the last person Stoick witnessed control Dragons?
Stoick had seen Drago use dragons to burn down his contemporaries, his friends, with out any hesitation.  Now his son had a dragon.  A dragon that would have killed Stoick had Hiccup been so inclined to let that happen.
There is no way that his son could ever be like that monster.  Now way Valka’s son could be like that. But Stoick saw the evidence.
Now of course when he saw Hiccup leading the gang into battle.  Saw him fighting for a village that turned it’s back on him, Stoick realized that Hiccup and Drago were two different breeds.  But for a sharp moment he saw a strange man from a strange land look up at him from the boy’s eyes.
And there was no way that could be his son.

  2. Hi guys. we need to have a serious chat right now.

    Two years ago, there was a movie called Paranorman.

    It didn’t do so good at the box office, despite it being one of the most important, game changing animated movies since the Disney renaissance. It made its money back, but it wasn’t the smash hit Frozen was.

    Kitchen Tender being Rowed. Egyptian, ca. 1981–1975 B.C., from the Tomb of Meketre.

    Many outings of Egyptian nobles culminated in a picnic. On the menu for Meketre’s boat trip were roasted fowl, dried beef, bread, beer, and some kind of soup. Meat and bread were carried on another model of a tender, now in Cairo. Here, the beer is prepared and the soup cooked. A blackened trough may have contained burning coal for roasting the fowl. A man tends a stove on which soup simmers. On either side, a woman grinds grain. Brewers inside the cabin are shaping bread loaves, then working them through sieves into large vats. One brewer stands in another vat, where he tramples the dates that provide the sugar for the fermentation of the beer. The oars of this boat are fixed to the sides; to avoid damaging the oars while the boats were transported and deposited in the model chamber, all oars of Meketre’s boats were secured in this manner.
