Where now she wanders none can tell,
In sunlight or in shade;
For lost of yore was Tauriel
And in the mountains strayed
captain of the guard
"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

Out of curiosity, could you take a moment to reblog this if you believe that demisexuality exists? I’m demisexual, and I feel like demisexuality goes really under the radar, even within the asexual community umbrella. A lot of people don’t believe that it exists, and even within the ace community, demisexuality is still questioned as being legitimate, although we share the same flag. So reblog this is if you believe it exists.
