Now, I know this is a controversial topic and most of all, a very controversial pairing (though most people seem to accept the Gimli and Legolas shipping a lot more) but I loved Tauriel in The Hobbit and I loved that Kili had a huge crush on her.
Let’s face it. As much as we love the original book, The Hobbit was a bro show. Which is fine for the book and nothing will ever change or re-write that classic piece of literature but in my growing adult years, I find that accepting the fluidity of media makes my life that much easier.
So goddammit, I fucking love the entire Tauriel x Kili movement. I tumblr that shit on my lunch breaks everyday. I think it’s perfectly acceptable for a filmmaker to insert a strong female character into the bro-dwarves-show as long as it’s done with respect. It’s a cool way to attract a whole new audience and inspire our gender a bit. Plus, Legolas’ expressions were just super entertaining. I’m going to stop my rambling and let the fanart speak for itself because there are tons of awesome ones out there now.
