Today’s prompt being “Gnome’s Worst Fear” – which got me thinking of Trolls immediately, so we have something very, very AU for Tock and Onna!
With slight canon nods, however:
- to a relationship between Orcs and Trolls
- to the fact that “Tock the Gnome” Gnomes are afraid of the idea of Trolls
- and that Tock herself is afraid of being confined – though it seems she intuitively knows that this Troll maiden wandering by will come to her aid!
(Full disclosure – I’ve been d y i n g to draw this since I thought of it the other day! And I feel, tonally, this was very strongly impacted by my recent inhalation of “The Folk of the Air” series by Holly Black, via the audiobooks read by Caitlin Kelly. I highly, highly recommend it.)
