The First Trolls by humon The First Trolls by humon
I finally found the story about where the first Nordic trolls came from. Of course it turns out Loki gave birth to them. How could I have expected otherwise? :XD:

The story doesn't actually tell why Loki decided to eat the heart or why it made him pregnant, but some have speculated that it was the heart of a witch that got burned in another story, so I incorporated a bit of that into the comic.

I'd like to know where to find something about that story as well... :o Never heard of it, looked for it on different sites and googled it... I only found out that trolls were supposed to always have been there. Would you mind to tell us the source?

Actually this is the story of Angrboda also known as 'the one who brings grief" or "she who offers sorrow'. She was a frost giant witch. The Asgardian's were trying to kill her by burning. Each time they burned her down to nothing but her heart she would regenerate. Loki realizing that their plan to kill her wasn't working decided to eat her heart. Afterwards it made him sick and he threw up Hel, (a girl who was split down the middle. (one side monstrous and the other normal), Jormungand the serpent so large it could circle the world tree & Fenrir the wolf.

Sorry I can't find the link i read about this before.

Its the story of the death of Angrboda and birth of 3 of Loki's children. Hel, Jormungand and Fenrir. My earlier comment explains more of the story.

Headcanon: That was the heart of Joan of Arc, as the saying goes only her heart remained after she was burned at the stake as a witch

I heard that the witch was mind controlling him. So when Odin burned her all that was left was her heart and he ate it out of some messed up vengeance thing, and in doing so gained all her powers.

Wait he has mind control in the avengers. Hmm…

actually, Loki found the heart in the ashes of a witch(amidst a fire) and in his rage he ate the heart.
But seriously, who eats a heart out of anger? o3o

To gamma-lunas: Actually, Loki was a mare at the time of Sleipnir's birth. So he was female. Still, normal horses aren't used to giving birth to eight legged horses so it was probably very uncomfortable.

To EarthPrincessEva: Actually, the giantess Angerboda gave birth to Fenrir, Hel and Jormungandr. But Loki's their father true enough. Oh and Jormungandr doesn't eat the world, he circles it so far he bites his own tail.

The heart is that of Gullveig, a magic user who is sometimes described as a version of Freya. She has been casting evil spells against the Gods so they try to burn her. The heart never catches fire and Gullveig is reborn around the heart. After many unsuccessful attempts at destroying Gullveig, Loki decides to eat the heart, thus giving birth to the magic Troll people (who when they first appear in Nordic stories are not just big stupid beasts but powerful magic users).

Three-four times. The troll part, slepiner(he was a mare tho) and Leikin(This one is tricky, Angerbodas get burned((after the kids I quess)) and is reborne as Heid. Heid get burned and loki eats her heart giving birth to Gullveig who also get burned. eating her heart Loki gives birth to Leikin)

And that are those I know without looking at a book:P last one sounds confusing even for me
