When I first heard of Tauriel I didn't want to have an opinion of her. The first movie had already came out and there were so many deviations from the book already that I expected the pattern to continue. When the movie came out I loved her! I think adding her was necessary. I'm excited to see what happens to her character in BOTFA. She's the one character who's fate we actually don't know.
I know the professor had definite ideas about women's roles and sometimes lids like Luthien they did stellar things. But I wish he wrote more about your average Elf and how they dealt with real life, the situations of the average life. I like Tauriel's spirit and kindness and how she thinks I hope she lives and has some joy.I really do.
I hope she lives too. With the death of Kili, Fili, and Thorin I'm not sure I can handle the death of another character. There is a scene in the trailer that has people buzzing about it ( When Thranduil slashes at her, breaking her bow), but I don't think that he will kill her.
I honestly wouldn't have much of a problem with Tauriel's existence in the Hobbit, except for the fact that shes in a confusing and weird interracial love triangle...with Legolas and Kili....seems really really weird and unneccesary to me.
Firstly.... Lee Lee!!! I havn't been on here for a while and what a wonderful surprise to see you here. I trulhope that you are happy and well.
Secondly I like the Tauriel Character. She is quite complex and interesting. She is a servant of a very overbearing King, a Woman and a Heroin.
All this talk of a love afar with Killi...or is it Filli...? Any how, I thin she is just a lonely girl who has found out that a rather charming young Dwarf is the total opposite to everything she has ever been told that Dwarves are like.
I fear that she will not make it to the end. And I fear that when her theme, A Feast Of Starlight, plays toward the end of the battle I will be in hysterical tears....
I love her like a sister and I will be there dear Brego. We can sit side by side and weep from the depths of our hearts togetfer. oH dear I an already WEEPING.
Well guys, it's me again, haven't been on in a great while, sorry. Just checking up for the meanwhile. Yes, I side with Glorfindel. Yes, Alas, sadly, she won't hook up with Legolas, what I wanted. whatever
Well. really that would be very Tolkien if she does not have her dreams and dies.
Maybe it's just my humble opioion, but I don't know if I think Legolas is in love with her. I think it's like a sibling type thing, but that he has been told that he SHOULD love her, but doesn't truly. But I love the character. Elves are m favorite part of the whole Tolkein universe.
