A/N: I really did not expect this to be so long. And I’m actually working on a longer piece that discusses some of the things I go into here. Also, I’m still working on the playlist too. If I’m not finished that by tomorrow, I’ll just post a few ideas about music and writing (updating last year’s list) and some things that remind me of Trygve.
But today I speak of Trygve and my relationship with him. Without mincing words, I fucking love Trygve. He is, so far, my favorite of all the original characters I’ve created. Don’t get me wrong, I love Elspeth too but Trygve, apart from his personality, motivations, and moral compass, is special to me for the simple reason is that he is my favorite type of character. The one who is charged with speaking uncomfortable truths, of pointing out when our heroes are acting self-absorbed, reckless, self-serving, or just plain being dumb.
