"This is not our fight/This is our fight" - A probably pointless analysis Can't Post

As the heading states, this may be nothing more than misguided perception but here's my take on the short dialogue between Tauriel and Legolas (according to the trailer).

As both Elves look towards Laketown in the distance, Legolas states "This is not our fight" and seems to be referring to their involvement with the dwarves' quest (or else, Azog's relentless pursuing of Thorin). Whatever the reason, Legolas does not want to get involved and his emphasis seems to include the elves of Mirkwood and those under his father's realm.

Tauriel's response is ambiguous: "This is our fight" with a clear emphasis on "our", which makes me wonder - whose that? If she's also referring to themselves and the elves of Mirkwood, why not pronounce the line as "This is our fight" to go in line with Legolas' previous answer?Crazy

So, do you think there's something more to that line than meets the eye (or ear in this case) or is it just a mispronounced sentence? Or is it nothing at all and, as just stated, I'm looking too deep into things? Laugh
