From what I understand, Love At First Sight is very much a thing amongst elves, right? Like Arwen and Aragorn, Luthien and Beren, etc? So in my headcanon, Tauriel flings that knife at that spider, sees Kili, and is like, “well, shit, this is awkward.”
Which makes this scene all the more awesome to me. Ladies, please remember that just because you may have fallen in love with some random dude who makes jokes about his penis, doesn’t mean you can’t slap him down about the size of said penis and keep him on his toes. True love should never mean you can’t be snarky.
There’s nobody up here that can hurt you. It’s safe. I mean, what’s the point of going on? What’s the point of living? Your kid died. Doesn’t get any rougher than that. But still, it’s a matter of what you do now. If you decide to go, then you gotta just get on with it. Sit back, enjoy the ride. You gotta plant both your feet on the ground and start livin’ life.
