sorcery idea

fossegrim trott luring in pretty boys with his music and playing pranks on them since his singing voice usually scares them away. 

he doesnt like killing them because hes lonely but hes surprised when ross comes back three days in a row to see him and spend time with him (and brings him food since ‘fish dont really swim down this bit of river, mate’)

trott mostly thinks ’oh shit hes never heard of Strömkarlen before, thats why hes not scared of me’ but ross knows hes dangerous and thats why trott is interesting and mysterious. ross knows he should have died three days ago but hes not dead, and thats why trott is so damn cool.

ross brings him sheet music for lotr and eventually invites him up on land to his little seaside house to watch it. trott learns every song ross brings to him because hes never had attention before and he likes it, and he wants ross to like him. 

trott cries when ross calls him a friend.

A is coming home for their birthday...
