Day and Night on Alternia!
So quite a while back I was drawing a picture from a rp about one of my trolls going out “at night” to catch fireflies in the dark before realizing Alternia is backwards, so there was nothing special about going out “at night”, all trolls go out “at night” and there was nothing analogous to our nightime when a troll could go out to catch fireflies in the dark. It’d be dumb to go catch fireflies when the sun is up! Which got me thinking about the cycles of day and night, and since anontrolls just made a post about the same thing, I got inspired to actually write this up!
As a note: this is highly highly non-compliant with canon facts regarding the number of perigees, equinoxes, and bilunar perigees Alternia seems to have because canon is CONFUSING.
