Sooo recently on my post i mentioned that there is a rumor going that Tauriel and Kili will have a romantic relationship... !!! some of you didn't like the idea but some did , anyway my question is : Do you like the idea of dwarf Kili and Elf Tauriel Having a romantic relationship???
I worry it would diminish the friendship of Gimli and Legolas that we see develop in LOTR. And probably the relationship between Aragorn and Arwen as well. Friendships and love affairs between species are few and far between in Middle Earth and very special and important when they happen. Unless film makers have very good reason to mess with that I'd rather not see them throw these things around willy nilly.
But the poll does not have an option that captures my sentiments in this regard completely.
I am mostly against it because I don't think sticking a female character into the movie in order to have a romance appeals to me. Sticking in a female character in order to have a female character for a female actor to play and female and male audience members to enjoy in the ways they usually enjoy female characters, totally another story, I look forward to seeing Tauriel!
On the other hand, having an Elf and a Dwarf from Tolkien's Middle Earth fall in love would be something I could get behind. I always imagined it happening as a kid. I felt Dwarves never got enough credit, everyone interesting was always falling for fair Elven maids and tall warriors, but *I* always liked the Dwarves. They were brave and fierce and loyal, and loved, and made, beautiful things, and were one of the Free Peoples. What's not to love?
