LOCATION: New Berk
Steven blinked. And then he blinked again, his face twisting to match the confusion and the horror that bubbled in his chest. That is absolutely not what he expected, and that is absolutely not the conclusion he'd wanted Hiccup to come to. Steven shot a bewildered look to Toothless, who seemed to return it with a tilt of the head. Who is Eir? And how did he have any resemblance to her? A goddess-? Oh, jeez. He supposed that he did kind of seem like a deity. He could float, he could heal things, he could summon a weapon and bubble himself. He was pretty strong too- oh no, wait, Hiccup was absolutely shaking-!
"Uhm," Steven cringed, unable to immediately find the words to detail just how incorrect Hiccup was - like, he'd actually become very used to people accepting him as he was lately, so it's been a minute since he's been mistaken for someone he wasn't. At least he wasn't being mistaken for his mom, right? Ha- And then his stomach positively swirled when Hiccup started to bow to him. "Nonono," he exclaimed, "You don't have to do that! Really! Please, I- Hiccup, you don't have to bow to me. Ha, I don't even know who Eir is! I'm just Steven. I-"
He frowned sightly - not at Hiccup, but at himself. Like, you know, of course he'd have to go through a sort of identity crisis again, right? Except no. No, he wasn't about to try to convince this guy he wasn't some kind of god. Been there and done that, and.. Well, he doesn't really have time for it. Why did he let himself get swept up in Hiccup's enthusiasm and monologuing? Yeah, dragons were cool and Hiccup really did seem like a nice guy, but Steven had to get home. Home was kind of weird right now, sure, but it wasn't as weird as being pulled from your home universe and promptly plopped into.. all this.
Steven took his phone back from where Hiccup had set it down before he kept talking, inadvertently gesturing with the phone in his hand, "You know what? It's fine, screw it, call me whatever you want, I don't even care, I was just-" An idea came to mind right then. It made him feel queasy - gross, even - but it was also an idea that might actually work. Like if Hiccup didn't know what was going on anyway, it'd be easy to just take his tokens and run, right? Shockingly easy. Hiccup was just a regular guy after all, and Steven had his powers at his disposal... The big question was could he really do it, though?
Steven clears his throat, the nerves bubbling in his stomach. No better time to find out, right?
"I'm still just kinda.. Frazzled," he said, starting with the truth - he was still pretty frazzled and afraid, "I thought giving you my phone and letting you read the texts that have the rules in them would help you but obviously it didn't, so-" Aaaah! Stop using so many words, Steven! He quickly put his phone back in his pocket, and following his question of "So do you happen have anything that looks like this?" Steven pulls one of the five tokens in his possession for Hiccup and his dragon to look at.
