Not only did they fix my lamp, they even fixed my children and they are now much quietter, sleeping like angels. My home is even more comfy-er especaially now that i cant feel my arms and legs :D My plumber friends  would approve of this service, but too bad they don't exist anymore :D Thank Thor they don't need batteries, they're jut too expensive these days.

 

10/10 best service ever. They also make great lighting 

-SoulStereo

 

8/10 I thought their service was awesome! Then again I'm a berserker so maybe I just liked seeing the skrill

although it did try to eat my cat...and my friends...and anyone who made eye contact

-HypergoofTheFri...

 

Skrill electrician's are the best! I called them over to Mildew's house a few days ago after he complained about customer service, they fixed every single one of the problems over there! The old man's quieter, sleeping quite peacefully, and he never complains about anything now! Absolutely wonderful job for the price! 10/10 Skrill electricians will really bring you an electrifying solution!

I just barely bought a Skrill man that's a low price for such an amazing electric master. And guess what it does not need batteries! But though my cat did go missing in the last few days. 

 

but these electrician are perfect.
 
 
 
I'm not really sure what an electrician is or what they do, and my own Skrill doesn't either, so we sent Terror Mail to the Electrician Skrill, seeing as it's a highly recommended service. Only took two days to get here, which is speedy for customer service lately, and set right to work. The charred and blasted walls make my hut look a lot nicer than it did before, and the big storm caused by the electrician got rid of all my unfriendly neighbors. And, oddly enough, it seems that my own Skrill has been blessed with children only a few weeks after the electrician's visit. All in all, definitely a great service!

"I always wanted to have light on my house, but I was too poor. I only had 10 coins on my pocket! But thanks to that amazing discount of 1 bazillion dollars, I got saved! Now I can have him light up my room when I sleep on my big coffee cup. Wait what? Did we have coffee on the viking age? Who cares. I used it to scare  my neighbors on the next doors, and it was worth it. I'll also keep it as a pet, and I'll teach my Skrill how to knit clothing. Thanks for wasting your time to read my review. You just lost 10 hours of your life. Baibai. Anyways, cookies anyone? No? Eh eh eh? Okay.
P.S. Amazing service. 10/10!!!

Skrill electricians is the best ever! Great service. All though my pet hamsters did escape soon after the electrician left  
I will have to figure out how they ripped that big hole in their cage and where all those scorch marks came from...hmmmm Anyway skrill electricians is definitely the best! 10/10
 

 

Skrill electricians are amazing! They fixed my rabbit from eating his litter, however, he does seem to have been sleeping for a very long time. Three months exactly. I never have to worry about anything for electricity again, thanks to Skrill Electricians! They did blow up my house however, so I have to take away half a point for that. They also made it so my neighbors don’t bother me any more! They moved away because my electrician was “too deadly” Bah! Deadly? No! Over all, I rate this a 9.5! Chicken rates it a 9.7! 

 

-Madness

 

I don't remember calling one but he did come.

My yaks both got an afro and my sheep have never looked fluffier even tho a couple went missing but they probably ran away.

I got a bonus too!! Mildew is now too scared to call my dragon stupid again so that's a plus! Thank you skrill electritian!!

 

-MajaPercuilum

 

I called using my stone brick and straight away the Skrill came! I spent all my precious money on chicken nuggets, so the discount of a bazillion dollars really saved me. I got to just sleep in bed whilst the Skrill was hard at work, and when I woke up, I was extremely comfortable, thanks to the Skrill blessing me with a new house. I now love sleeping in my Gronckle Iron box. It's wonderfully metally and comfy. I need to figure out what happened to my last 100 chicken nuggets though, I bought a huge stock and now they're gone. And Mildew is fixed! He decided he likes dragons so much that he sleeps on the snow in Icestorm Island, never moving, sleeping like an angel he is (a wrinkly old angel).

100/10 Skrill Electricians are the best.

 

-LunarPride

 

Skrill Electricans are the best! One day, after a storm, my house almost collapsed of old age and the effects of the storm. I was in dispair, so I called Skrill Electricans. When they arrived, I fell asleep, and when I woke up, my house was completely fixed! It was beautifully done, made out of hay, and on fire!! It was the prettiest thing I ever saw. And the smoke billowing from it made me cough, but I loved it! Eventually it did burn down, but I payed them all I had! Skrill Electricans all the way!

 

-donnala

 

The Skrill Electricians have me an electrifying solution to a very dark and char free home! Now my home is much brighter! Now I just sleep outside!
I was short on money so the discount of a bazillion dollars saved me! They're wonderful service inspired me to use the money I saved with the discount to buy my own skrill! Thank you Skrill Electricians!

I Like This Question. It's Deep.

In short? A lot.

 

I grew up with this franchise. I've loved the characters ever since the beginning, and HTTYD was one of the things that really made me who I am today. When it first came out, I was young, and I never really fit in anywhere. In a sense, I was like Hiccup- I was a nobody. HTTYD showed me that I can be a somebody, even if no one thinks I can. I was antisocial and awkward, and now I'm enthusiastic, and I love me for who I am, not for who people think I should be. This is one of the movie franchises that isn't just something I enjoy, it was a part of my childhood. And I still love the characters and the story, and pretty much everything about it. When I have days when I feel like the world is against me and I don't have anybody, I can remember the fictional world that I was a part of for so long, and still am, even though I'm much older now.

It also inspired me to write. When I first realized how much I loved the franchise, I became enchanted by the idea of creating worlds of my own. People of my own. Sprung purely from my imagination, just like those characters I loved so dearly, as if they were my own friends. I was like an architect, constructing worlds and adventures that no one else will ever experience. HTTYD was like a whole other world to me, and I loved the idea of having one of these "worlds" as my own. It's a sense that is fulfilling and cherished.

The characters were my friends and the world was my home.

 

Anyways, sorry, that was long, but as the subject says, I like that question. It's deep. XD

HTTYD is everything to me.

HTTYD is everything to me. It's the thing I want to learn about and the thing I want to play. It's worth I talk about and the thing I love. Todd has made me see everything differently.

because I thought the monsters

Thought to myself, 'What if not
all of the monsters are bad?"

BUBBA NOOOOOOO!!!

When I was 10 I got into dragons. That was just before the first HTTYD commercial played and I got obsessed with it for a while only because I liked dragons. Now, it just looks like another Dreamworks movie that I enjoy. I am a big fan of Dreamworks, someday I wanna work with them.

I still like HTTYD because I love the dragon diversity, and I would like it better if Toothless wasn't so popular.

There are only 2 signs before our savior returns. First, the gospel will be translated in all languages and received to all world tribes to hear the word. The second sign is all of the nations will turn against Israel and plan to destroy the Jews once and for all. As the armies arrive, Jesus will emerge as pure and fight all the armies all against one. There begins the rapture to break down the old world, then form a new one.

Today the bible has been translated to 98% of all languages, and now Obama wishes to plan offenses against Israel.

Jesus is coming back this century

For the Love of a Real-Life Toothless

HTTYD - the first film - is my favorite movie. And frankly, it was life-changing.

 

Funny thing is, this all began, not with a dragon, but with a horse.

 

Jetta was a pony-sized Quarter horse mare we rescued. She was half-starved, had overgrown hoves, a bashed-in skull, and old scars all over her legs. I, meanwhile, was going through the worst years of most people's lives - middle school - and dealing with my parents currently having a visitation and child support court disagreement. (Fun times.) Not to mention I wasn't exactly a popular person at school, what with being your resident honors student dork.

 

Jetta was a little bit unsure about people, understandably. As a result, people thought the horse was crazy and that we were crazy for buying her. But...I don't know, I just thought she was the best thing from the start. She was quiet with me, she let me handle her, let me catch her in the pasture, and no one really knew why. I guess because I didn't know what I was doing, really, so I didn't ask much of her. I learned how to ride while trying to teach her to be ridden; we were both green and had many hilarious falling accidents (never because she spooked but because one of us just plain messed up). But we kept at it. I discovered we had the same energy and love to explore and willingness to try new terrain.

 

I didn't just ride, either. I spent time with her. I went for walks with her by my side. I read to her in the pasture. I introduced to her new locations, and she was always more curious than fearful.

 

Before long, we were riding bareback and bridleless regularly, and we were as inseparable as possible. She even proved protective of me, standing over me when I fell off during a stampede and chasing off a dog that tried to nip my ankles. Mostly we rode for miles into the wilderness, going as far as time would allow, riding out into miles of state park, chasing deer and running straight into flocks of wild turkeys, jumping any log or bluff we found. And I guess that riding paid off, too; I didn't like shows, but in all the ones we ever wented, we only ever got first and second place.

 

And they called her crazy.

 

Funny thing was, I thought I was healing a rescued horse. The truth was...I think she saved me. I won't get into that...but she wasn't just my horse. In a way, she wasn't even really a pet. She was my best friend. She was my sister.

The first time I saw How to Train Your Dragon and saw how Hiccup and Toothless interacted...I saw Jetta. Toothless was like her in so many ways, it just...tugged so much on my heart strings. From their untrusting first encounters to their comical first failed attempts at riding to Toothless' sassy and blunt Jetta-like nature and how he was even protective like she was...this movie had me from the touch scene onward and wouldn't let go.

 

That's just the main reason, of course. The music and animation are amazing; this is just beautiful to look at and listen to. This movie taught me that soundtracks can be composed to be good enough to stand on their own as pieces while also still being able to support a scene. And it taught me to appreciate animation in a way I never did before.

 

But the characters and story! This means so much to me, I can't even. Toothless is the absolute best part of this franchise for being every best friend-pet anyone has ever loved. Heck, every heroic thing that dragon does in the movies is for love; I mean, he becomes alpha simply because he loved and wanted to protect his best friend, for goodness' sake! And speaking of heroes, that's what Hiccup did, too, in both films, risking his life for his village and his best friend. Hiccup's conviction and bravery in the first film is still the most powerful thing of this franchise. I can't think of a stronger message or one I'd want proclaimed even more than the power of love. And the first film hands out character arches like candy. Hiccup gets a character arch, Toothless gets a character arch, Stoick gets a character arch, Astrid gets a character arch, we're just handing out the arches.

 

And that's where the storyline shows through. Let me tell you, as someone who loves the art of storytelling, I love the first movie's story. It's not flawless, but dang, is it good! People can talk all they want about the cliche storyline in the first film, and usually they're using that word incorrectly and what they actually mean is "tropey." And yes, it is tropey. But thing is...they do it well. Almost everything is set up, you can see every emotion in the characters, the pacing is great, and the heart of the story, the "love triangle" between Hiccup, Toothless, and Stoick, symbolizing the continuing conflict of what Hiccup desires vs. what he recieves, is what holds the tension together and keeps us entranced throughout the film. For the most part, this is good storytelling! This is using tropes in a way that shows us why they became tropes in the first place...because they make great stories with great morals! Jetta or not, this wouldn't have remained my favorite film for 7 years otherwsie.

 

I also feel this movie just hit all the right parts for me personally. I've always loved dragons and medieval fantasy worlds, so that's a plus. I love sarcastic humor. And I just...relate to Hiccup. I already brought up the Jetta/Toothless thing, but that just scratches the surface. I have father issues a mile long, so Hiccup and Stoick's conflict...eh, hit home harder than it probably should have. (I hope most of you don't relate as much as me.) Hiccup is a pretty nerdy Viking, too, which I can't even begin to tell you how much this straight-A student relates to that. Not to mention Hiccup being small and wimpy? ...I don't weigh enough to donate blood, okay? I totally get that. And now he just wants to research dragons. I'm currently getting a degree to research wild animals. And I actually did do animal training in high school as a "first job." I just...the only way I could have related more to this character is if they made him a writer instead of an inventor and then made him female. I connect to this character intensely.

 

Speaking of being an animal trainer, there's also the dragon training. I actually worked as a dog trainer and horse rehabilitator for a time, and I've been fighting against the harmful "alpha dog training" and the bullying "old school" way of horse training and riding in favor of working with the animal and developing an understanding based on trust. So seeing films and even a whole franchise that, in a way, are entirely about making a bond with your animal and training them with kind but firm positive reinforcement brings more joy to my heart than I can say. I sincerely hope that this franchise has a positive affect on the ideas children have about handling animals; it's powerful propoganda that I truly believe in and live by.

 

And finally, while the franchise often annoys me the further it corrupts things from the first film and the more ridiculous it gets story-wise, the many different types of dragons are a BIG reason for continuing to consume everything in the franchise. After all, without this riduclous expanding HTTYD universe, I wouldn't have my HTTYD ice dragons! ^_^ Not to mention...all the different dragons are just so cool, ice-breathing or not! They're amazing!

 

So I first loved it for Jetta and Toothless. Then I found so much more to love along with it. And I've been in deep ever since. I'm not going to sit here and say it changed my life, but it's gotten a huge chunk of my heart, and I doubt it's letting go any time soon. (Otherwise I wouldn't be here.) ;)

I Like Waffles and Ukuleles

That is literally beautiful. I can honestly say I'm moved.

 

Why? Because the story about your horse, Jetta. I understand that, though not to such an extent. I find it amazing that you took a horse so damaged and treated her with love and affection, not to mention earning her complete trust- not many people can do stuff like that! More and more these days, I see people earning "trust" with animals by forcing them to obey them. My mum, sister and I train and ride horses, with a method not commonly seen. That method involves earning trust, but also respect, in not a dictatorship-like way, but in a way that you might earn trust with a new friend. The trust in our methods go both ways- we trust the horse, and the horse trusts us. We respect the horse, and the horse respects us.

 

My mare, Freya, we think was likely abused by her past owners. I started riding her when she was still skittish and unsure of humans, and though certainly not as much as your horse would have been, it was understandable that Freya was scared. Previously, about five years prior, I had suffered a riding incident that wasn't major, but caused me to fear riding and horses from that point forward. Then, I started training with Freya- who was also scared, just like me. And we grew out of that together, and we still are growing. I had been a part of the HTTYD fandom long before that, but then I started to realize that horses were a lot like the dragons I loved so much- if you treated them with love and respect, they would treat you with love and respect. Because young me had dreamed of having a dragon of my own (I spent my days searching my half acre backyard for them), Freya sort of became my "dragon". My friend that showed me I could face my fears.

 

Anyways, that's awesome, like I first said. Which is technically what I was going to say overall, but then I started ranting, shame on me. XD

Not everything - but something.

For me Httyd means, not everything, but something.

 

What connected to me the most goes along with what Whisper says about the bonding.

When I was young and first meeting my step-father, he let me pick a puppy from the litter his dog gave birth to. It was a 'welcome to the family' gift of sorts. Well as I was growing and learning, I tended to teach my dog a bit differently than my father did. While I taught her with praise and kindness, looking for ways to improve on where she lacked, my father taught her with strict rules and a punishments if need be. Now I wasn't the 'speak up to be heard' type, and I was young so what did the words of a 7 year-old matter anyway? Then came Httyd. I saw the way Hiccup bonded with Toothless and learned with him - no violence. I saw the way they loved each other too, and that gave me some sort of confidence that teaching by changing to fit the animal's needs is perfectly fine. Now that I'm older, I can see how well that works. I've trained my father's dog to stop barking with a simple command rather than shouting that she's dumb and stupid until she stops. (Yes - he does call the dog stupid :/)

 

So while this discovery wasn't life changing, the Httyd universe gave me a small push saying "Hey, being kind and working around the problem isn't you being weak, but strong."
