Yes, I know it has been a while but I finally have something complete and ready to share. The story should be up before today is over.


I have been working with something new and I have gone back to my favorite sort of tale, one that revolves around growing up and changing.


My tale is about Troll. There are many types of trolls. Some are big, scary, and march through the sunlight and give everyone who sees them nightmares. Some are smaller, strong, but can't go out into the sunlight or they will turn to stone. This is what type of troll the story surrounds. Troll is a bridge troll. He lives under his bridge and just longs to be left alone. However, that isn't what happens. A boy named Calvin lands in the middle of his world and changes it forever.


So read Troll and let me know what you think.

Maybe I should save it for a review, and not say anything, so I don't attract Comican's rage for giving away something about his story, but I just wanted to let people know that I thought it was a lovely story and well worth reading. I'll save my other thoughts for a review when it goes up!


Oh, just one other thing. I see that "Fairy Tale" tag sir and I'm not sure I approve of it, sir! :P


No really, there is a reason I'm being so anal about this and while it isn't 100% consensus, it is pretty well accepted amongst scholars of fairy tales what the requirements of a fairy tale are, and one of the biggies is that the author of the tale is unknown and the tale only becomes known be being passed on. I'm sure you're wondering if the horror-story-like urban legends of today qualify and I can only say there's a lot of rousing discussion amongst folk tale/fairy tale/oral tale researchers. In any case, the reasons why it is important to keep actual, real fairy tales separate in categorization from other types of stories is a long, long story that I'm sure nobody in the forum is interested in, but that's why I get on Comicfan's case about it!


That said, actual fairy tale or not, this story about a troll is absolutely marvelous and I recommend you check it out.
