Tauriel was shocked she had never known an elf to hunt animals.

I very much doubt that. Peter Jackson didn't get into the diet of the Wood-elves, but Tolkien definitely pegged them as hunters.

There was a fire in their midst and there were torches fastened to some of the trees round about; but most splendid sight of all: they were eating and drinking and laughing merrily.

The smell of roast meats was so enchanting that, without waiting to consult with one another, every one of them got up and scrambled forwards into the ring with the one idea of begging for food.


In fact the subjects of the king mostly lived and hunted in the open woods, and had houses or huts on the ground and in the branches.


Companies of the Wood-elves, sometimes with the king at their head, would from time to time ride out to hunt, or to other business in the woods and in the lands to the East.

Even the High Elves in Rivendell should not have been depicted living on an all-vegetarian diet. That was Peter Jackson displaying his sense of humor with the Dwarves' reactions.

If I didn't mention it before, the Avari probably had a different name for themselves. The term Avari (the Unwilling; the Refusers) came from the Elves of the Great Journey.

Don't take these notes to heart. They are just something that you might want to keep in mind for future reference or if you make any major revisions to your story.

There has been some debate about the make up of the Silvan Elves of Rhovanion. Some think that they were all Teleri, but closer to the Green Elves (and the Avari) than the Sindar. Others think that some of the Avari eventually migrated west and blended in with the Teleri population. Silvan probably was very close to their original language, basically just a dialect of it.

"Things need not to have happened to be true.
Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure
when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot."
