Anyway, the idea of an elf and a dwarf 'doing it' is rather disturbing. I mean, really, picture that! :disturbed:
I am with you on that one Prog. Ewwww, *shudders*
Problem with theory: Hobbits are smaller than dwarves. Wouldn't a dwelf (dwarf-elf) be about 5 feet tall?
Tolkien cannon: Elves have always considered dwarves to be "unlovely" calling them the naugrim or "stunted people". Elves and dwarves are probably very biologically different, since Dwarves were given shape by Aule and Elves by Eluvatar. Elves do not appear to have sexual relations as often or as carelessly as humans. There have never been any illegitimate elves in ME, so why would there be illegitimate half-elves? Marriages between elves and humans were considered highly irregular, so I cant imagine their laws allowing a marriage to a Naugrim. I am sure that Tolkien describes the hobbits as a separate race, but they were not included in any early histories because they kept themselves seperate from other races, pursuing peaceful activities, much as they did at the time of theWotR.
Elf and Dwart intermarriages? Tolkien would be horrified...:hahaha: I can picture him turning over in his grave, and Christopher having some kind of attack.
This is an interesting discussion, however. I hope some others have some comments! :D
