DESOLATION OF SMAUG, DUDE. CAN WE TALK ABOUT ELVES AND THEIR CONCEPT OF MORTALITY IN DESOLATION OF SMAUG?
Guys I wrote a straight-up essay about my feelings about elves. It’s…long. It’s about Thranduil and Legolas mostly - I also loved Tauriel but she doesn’t quite fit the theme of the essay, so I’ll get to her later. Putting it under a cut for minor Desolation of Smaug spoilers - read at your own risk.
