"Tauriel’s awkward facial expressions during the dungeon scene" appreciation post. (x)
Okay, but seriously though, Tauriel being the most socially awkward little muffin that ever did live is one of my favourite headcanons from the movies. I just love the idea of her being this incredibly badass, don’t-fucking-mess-with-me Captain of the Guard who’s incredibly beautiful and graceful and competent at her job — but who also has a ridiculously hard time talking about things that aren’t archery and knives and violently slaughtering things.
I mean, look at the third gif. Tauriel pulls that face after Kili makes the “whosoever looks upon this talisman shall be fOVREVER CURSED” comment. She is fully prepared to just awkward the fuck out of there. Like ‘shit fuck shit I thought we were having an okay conversation mAYBE NOT TAURIEL OUT’ — and then her face when she realizes he’s making a joke!! It just screams ‘slightly lonely elf lady who’s thrown herself into being awesome at her job for thousands of years and doesn’t really know how to normal conversation’ to me.
I mentioned it to thebatwiggler and she mentioned how cute it would be if Tauriel really wanted to kiss Kili, but kept fretting over how. Like, will bending down insult him?? Should she find something for him to stand on?? And so she tries to always be sitting down or slouching when he’s around and eventually he’s just like ‘miss are you okay???’ and Tauriel’s like YES I AM FINE TOTALLY FINE THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE MOTIVE TO THIS WHATSOEVER I’M GOING TO GO KILL SOMETHING GOOD DAY SIR and I just
I love awkward Tauriel okay she is my favourite.
#I JUST THINK IT WOULD BE A REALLY CUTE CHARACTER TRAIT FOR HER TO HAVE #AND EVERYONE IS LIKE ‘wow kili your lady sure is badass’ #and he’s like YES SHE IS BUT SHE IS ALSO SO CUTE YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA #and she gives him shit about that time he almost fucking died at the battle of the five armies because he’s so reckless #and he gives her shit about the time she got stuck listening to oin talk about cures for rashes for 45 minutes #because she didn’t know how to get away without offending him #i just #i have a lot of feelings okay
YES EXCELLENT THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT

so in LOTR’s appendices it says that legolas eventually builds a boat and takes gimli across the seas and into the west, the gray havens. you know, the place arwen isn’t allowed to go because she’s in love with a human dude bUT LEGOLAS (AKA ‘YOU LITTLE SHIT’) JUST SAYS “FUCK IT” AND SNEAKS GIMLI INTO THE GODDAMN UNDYING LANDS LIKE CONTRABAND TWIZZLERS INTO A MOVIE THEATER
