The Dorky Girl

     With How to Train Your Dragon 2 coming out in the near future I am excited to see a more grown up Hiccup. However, from the teaser trailer we are only let on to see Hiccup and toothless (who hasn't aged in appearance). I can't keep myself from wondering how the other kids have aged. Specifically speaking of the twins. Because beside toothless and hiccup, they were my favorite characters. Oh how I wished Hiccup hooked up with Ruffnut. Why is it that in almost every story the guy falls for the beautiful/hot girl? And the dorky, goofy girl is nothing more than a side character. Why don't the guys ever go for the nerdy, the goofy, the odd girl?
     Take Thor for example. he went with the intelligent and beautiful girl, all the while I wish he fell in love with her goofy friend.
     Lately the rave for a strong female protagonist has been overwhelming. She has to be gorgeous and charming and able to kick butt or serrender under the male protagonists' rescue. Why can't we have a silly and slightly air headed heroine? I'm not saying a dumb rich blonde girl either.
     I'm just frustrated that the cute nerdy girl loses out. What's her story, and when will we get to see it?

P.S. Astrid really isn't even compatible for Hiccup...being that he's super dorky.
