Random ideas/headcanons that won’t get fics anytime soon. If anyone wants to add on/chime in/create something, feel free.
Based on a dream I had- some sort of alter UMY-verse, in which fae-ish Trott visits a pub he’s been to before and runs into a minor annoyance.
I dunno what Trott is, A vampire, maybe, but not in the conventional sense, and also some sort of magic user, so maybe a sorcerer/warlock too? Or a fairy. I dunno.
Though it could be read differently, I also imagine that Ross is the bartender and Sips is the (at least former) pub owner. The pub is both non-human/magical and human customers. The last time Trott was here was in the 70s, and it is now present day.

The pain started in his shoulders.
Ross thought he pulled a muscle wrong at the gym, but it didn’t go away. It was a persistent, at first subtle, ache in his bones. His broad shoulder muscles become sore and stiff to the touch. Very tiny feathers start flaking off when he showers.
Ross knew he had fae blood in him, but he never showed any symptoms of anything. “There weren’t any ab- weren’t any fae-like changes in me when I hit puberty,” he tells the doctor. Every breath he took in felt a little different, like his shoulders carried extra weight.
Wings. Wing growth was causing his shoulder pain.
