I Came. I Saw. I Conquered.
Please pay attention carefully to our last hero motif stages.
Hiccup has lost everything. Now it is time to face everything. Like many heroes he trains and gathers an army, but also like most of our heroes, he has to face the Evil and the final battle --alone.
Stages: Hell, Devil, Death, and Resurrection.
Pay special attention to: hero stages, symbols linking Hiccup to Toothless, links to previous foreshadowing, falling or other worlds apart from the human realm. We will discuss charts when I return.
Think about how Card is drawing plots together: the mind game, the battle room, the "real world" of the boys at school, and the bugger war. What similarities to you notice? What questions is Card asking the reader to think about? How does this track with the hero motif and Dragons.
