Lovely!
Somehow I have the impression the troll from Hunting Ground is a bit scarier... Which reminds me *goes off to google 'seattle troll'* Yep, a lot like that... LOL

Seattle resident here.  Seattle is bordered on the east by a freshwater lake as long as the city (around 50 miles), and linking it to Puget Sound through Lake Union; I grew up fishing in Greenlake, and Bitter Lake is a few miles north of that.  While "the numerous salt water lakes or ponds in Seattle" are mentioned in this book, we do not lack for fresh water; it is SEATTLE, well known for overcast & drizzle/rain, after all.  I'm thinking - WAG here - that Dana lived on the Sound to help disguise her magical signature.  Easy enough to pipe in all the fresh water she wanted.  You may have noticed that in her showdown with Charles that she mentioned that the elements (multiple elements!) told her that Bran wouldn't come to Seattle.
This is a very damp city, and some of it's fresh, some salt, some a mixture, as tidewater flats.

We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!
But do beware the toad burps.

Now, Talyn was it, who guessed he's not an iron handler?  You did read where he was sitting when we were introduced to him, weren't you?  I can assure you from personal experience that this is not a wooden bridge.  Iron/steel.

King Arthur's legend has bad stuff happening to good guy.

Fae give gifts that backfire.

Coincidence?

I wouldn't want Arthur's weapons either.

In Norwegian folklore, trolls have no problem with iron. But they turn to stone in sunlight :)
Also they are big, they give no quarter and they will eat just about anything.
The terrifying thing is that even though they are so big, they can always fit under your bed.  :-'

Huuum, okay, if that is true, how did that one fae in IK drive a car? Is it direct contact, or can having a buffer stop the effects?

Huuum, that's true. he was driving a sports car actually, now that I think about it, and those are made from lighter materials then steel. Not sure then, how was he hanging out on that bridge, or are trolls a metal handling fae?
