To the protests, Jack all but barked a laugh and then grinned at him. “You totally do that…you have a very expressive way of talking. I should like set up a camera one day so you can see for yourself.” He smiled and reached to give him a gentle nudge on his hand. Jack looked back up to the sky, smiling softly, the look turning positively mischievous as Hiccup declared rules null and void for the subject of star-watching. “Okay, okay~” He reassured him.

"See? Aren’t you glad I dragged you up here? We’ve got a great view tonight." Hiccup flashed a small, crooked smile to his roommate before his gaze slipped skyward once more. Cloudless, and with just a bare chill on the air. All the charts had been right about that night and he was glad he’d checked them so diligently. With the moon waxing overhead, and no sports games from the far off stadium, the light pollution was minimized as well. True, he wasn’t sure they were supposed to be up there, but the roof wasn’t hard to get to, and he wanted a good view before the cold of Autumn crept in fully.
"I got you up here, so I consider that a small victory~" It was a step in the right direction. Hiccup was so caught up with obeying the rules that Jack worried that he’d never actually…live. It made the albino happy that he’d managed to shakes those shackles off his roommate just a little bit. To give him a taste of the freedom that Jack enjoyed everyday. His parkour allowed him access to places that people couldn’t normally go, he liked to explore and find little hidden nooks and crannies.
Jack’s eyes scanned the inky darkness, widening a bit as a shining streak of light shot across his vision. “Whoa…did you see that Hic?” He glanced over to see if his roomie had seen the shooting star as well, his eyes closing as he made a wish. A wish that he and his roommate could be happy like this for a while.
There was a quick, scoffing laugh from the brunette, but he didn’t quite have the gall to completely test his theory. “I refuse to be a part of your faux reality show Jack….and I definitely don’t do it quite that much” He added in a mumble, giving Jack a light nudge with his elbow.
They really did have to come up there more often though, he stuck to that one. It was too quiet up there, the cold sky above them peaceful, and utterly separated from the nearly stifling environment indoors. It reminded him of the time he used to spend outside in his hometown. Far better than being cooped up indoors, always bent over his desk, cramming between projects and tests. And spending it with Jack seemed appropriate sometimes. The guy could be weird, had his quirks, but overall, he could have had far worse roommates to deal with. And their friendship had taken root in ways he hadn’t expected.
Mossy eyes went wide in awe as they fell upon the bright star as it shot across the sky, its tail a vibrant arc in the ink of the canvas it streaked across. His lips parted in amazement, edges pulling up. “Wow….Yeah I did! That was, wow I haven’t seen one of those in a long time.” Hit attention fell to Jack for a moment to catch his eyes closed. Jack and his child-like habits sometimes. It didn’t take much to know he was making a wish. There was no harm it in, and he mimicked the move. Of course he had a lot of wishes, but his hard work would fix most of them to happen. No his wish was simple, and vague, something as light as hoping for more peaceful moments like that.
