They're supposed to be beautiful and majestic so artists go out of their way to make them so
>However, some generalisations are possible. In medieval Germanic-speaking cultures, elves seem generally to have been thought of as a group of beings with magical powers and supernatural beauty, ambivalent towards everyday people and capable of either helping or hindering them.
They are sometimes depicted as monstrous in some german mythologies this isn't the norm.
Elves wiggling or doing things with their ears just melts my heart.
The myth of beautiful magic humanoid creatures in tune with nature that live deep in the forest long predates Tolkien, but yeah it isn't the only depiction, just the most popular one.
Others include midget-like shitheads intent on stealing your kids in the middle of the night or playing mischief
why is there yet a anime or manga series about a cute elf girl marrying a human guy?
Fuck off /tg/, you're not welcome here.
>implying you wouldn't become a race traitor at the first opportunity
I prefer lithe elves.
>you will never be a soldier who abandons the battlefield in order to save a wounded elf orphan and raise her while everyone thinks you were KIA
Most decent anime back then were OVA, with no real tight budget restraint like a TV series has. Stardust Memory, Tenchi Muyo!, Lodoss, Golden Boy, etc etc etc. Unless it's Gundam, OVA these days just means bonus episode that didn't make it into a broadcast run.
I watched QB literally just for Alleyne
I like the artstyle too, but rewatching Loddoss OVA reminded me that it's so focused on the beautiful artstyle the animation is subpar as fuck.
Also, Parn is a HUGE HOMO.
>you will never marry a cute brown elf and live in seclusion
>you will never impregnate her over and over again until you have a large family
>you will never while on your deathbed tell your still young elven wife that you always knew that she'd outlive you and why the reason you gave her such a large family was so she wouldn't be lonely after you died
>you will never tell your elven male children to breed with their mother after you are gone for they too due to their mixed blood will not outlive her.
Wow Tolkien seems to have been pretty clueless about the whole rape thing.
The idea that long life is suffering was invented by humans who couldn't deal with the fact that they would die.
If the elf really was so overwhelmed by the loss of her family then she could suicide.
But you know what? I've survived several relatives now, and never once have I even considered killing myself over it. Why?
Because I like living.
Now stop this defeatist propaganda.
You know it's hard out here for an elf
When you're living in the forest by yourself
>I've survived several relatives now, and never once have I even considered killing myself over it. Why?
>Because I like living.
Who gives a shit about relatives? I'm talking about the love of your life.
How far are you willing to go to live forever with your elf waifu?
anyone have any good vanilla sad panda links?
I imagine the elf council would have to have a word on that, and they would not like the idea.
But sure I'd love to be turned to a
She's not even the best elf in the series. That title belongs to Echidna.
>That title belongs to Echidna
I don't think so.
sorry but Alleyne and I are already a couple
>only known manga featuring a shota elf as MC
>he's a complete edgelord
>tfw you will never be saved by cute elven milfs while lost in the forest
Pain is just a signal. When you know that your body cannot actually be permanently broken, pain loses its negative associations. Torture through physical injury becomes impossible.
there are no good pregnant pics of Alleyne
They devour your flesh to keep themselves young and place your soul in a jar
what's /a/'s opinion on cute dwarven girls
>using vampire as an insult
Vampires are like the Jews of the fantasy world.
People always paint them as evil when in reality they're pretty nice guys that just need a daily does of blood to survive.
Elves a shit. The only reason they are liked is because they are portrayed as the peak of human femininity and long ears. However, they are all sneaky, haughty, annoying bastards that would betray you to protect a tree.
Actually elves would give their lives for one of their friends or comrades, be it elf, human, dwarf or hobbit.
Knowing that they are everlasting and immortal, giving their lives is a pretty big deal to do for a friend.
I'm not into Ymir, dwarf chicks need to be fucking stout.
>getting sucked into elven propaganda
They KNOW that they are immortal and so you are disposable and they will use you to defend these lies about them. Don't believe their lies anon.
They are not your friends, they do not fight for your freedom.
there should be more angles and elven couplings. I mean they are both the embodiment of purity and beauty after all
>you will never live in a modern world with elves, dwarves and several other fantasy races
I'm talking real things, not /tg/-shit, sorry.
>they almost never go back to Middle-earth and remain in Valinor instead
>Eventually, their immortal spirits will overwhelm and consume their bodies, rendering them "bodiless", whether they opt to go to Valinor or remain in Middle-earth. At the end of the world, all Elves will have become invisible to mortal eyes, except to those to whom they wish to manifest themselves
I would like to
raise one to be a strong, smart, and wise individual.
considering how popular elves are, I'm surprised that there are not more vanilla relationships in mainstream anime and manga
>Tolkien invented elves
>Tolkien's canon is 'real' canon
Oooh aren't you a hilariously witty and original special snowflake!
I love how you subvert my expectations in a completely new and unconventional way! It's almost as if you weren't memeposting like a dumb fa/tg/uy who has no concept of when a joke stops being funny!
I tip my fedora to you, my good man. You, sir, are a gentleman and a connoisseur of fine humour.
The only good elf is a dead elf, and the only thing better than a dead elf is a dying elf that tells you where their friends are.
Why do you get to decide what's an elf and what isn't? Also, you are using 'fanfiction' wrong.
>Why do you?
I never did. I left it to the open. You're the one whose only form of elves is Tolkien.
>As if the shit /tg/ writes isn't fanfiction-tier.
Obviously, you've never been to /tg/ and you're still not using fanfiction right. Sure some of their writing is shit, but some of it is good. Stop being such an autist.
No, but you started using the whole "elf propaganda" shit, as if it was the only one.
>Obviously, you've never been to /tg/
I've been long enough to know all the things they do are shit nowadays.
Let's drop this fucking shit and post elves. If you want to claim victory go ahead, I don't give a fuck.
>Some of it is good
I spent three years going there almost daily for hours.
especially not the pretentious "smut" you guys used to circlejerk about instead of actually writing stuff you can fap to.
Fortunately that's gone.
That picture makes me want to be a womanly dark elf oneesan type and
work hard to make a cute high elf girl fall in love with me and overcome my evil nature and live a happy eternal life with her.
Mine is a forest elf.
Wanna be friends?
you should love her with all your heart
What a stupid statement, and an even dumber question.
DON'T BE FOOLED, THIS THREAD IS ELF PROPAGANDA
ELVES ARE NOT TO BE TRUSTED
How do you tell boy elves apart from girl elves?
fa/tg/uys plz, elven pussy is where it's at .
Link actually looked like a man till Ocarina of Time, the problem is that they are making him more and more feminine every game, and now he looks transexual
He looks like a faggot because that is the first game in the series officially inspired by anime.
>have sex with a loli elf
>elf police come
>you panic and start to imagine your life on the elf prisons (dropping the soap and getting buttfucked by pretty, handsome burly elf men)
>they handcuff the elf loli
>"you're going away for a long time, you hear? fucking pedophile"
>Queen's Blade with the original cast is dead.
Better pay my respects.
>I will never be a pretty as fuck elf man
This genuinely makes me sad.
Not only I could charm all the human, orc and elf girls with my super bishoujo androgynous beauty, I could also trap like a fucking pro.
Life is not fair.
well I'm a Kasumi fan...I also heard that Chun-li is joining the cast
That just makes them pointy-eared humans chosen by the gods who are granted superior magical powers and psychic abilities, and the duty to protect the sacred realm and the golden power from the hands of the unworthy.
Still, Link's bishounen enough that men and women would fuck him in a heartbeat.
>having or showing impressive beauty or dignity.
>have been thought of as a group of beings with magical powers and supernatural beauty
Hmm, I wonder where.
This thread suddenly got very gay. Let's get back to female elves.
That's a very mean thing to say, she's a girl.
Pretty weird, but whatever floats your boat.
what is the difference between wood elves and high elves?
It`s canon dude, no reason to get mad.
>racemixing is real
If elves are immortal, why is the world not full of elves?
>Society is at optimal size
>due to longevity, needless expansionism does not exist as long term planning of society is seen as better alternative
>too heavily specialized jobs(takes hundreds of years to train elf properly)
She's described as a barbarian woman in myth. A non-Greek is basically a subhuman. It's implied that her magical affinity is due to being a mythical being herself.
Spunky, foul-mouthed elves.
brown and white
young and old
> You'll never get your own elf for Christmas
You'll never get her consent to marry her or have beautiful elf children
You'll never be known as a dirty elf lover in your neighborhood
Why even live.
>I'd rather wander the forest and fall in love with a cute elf girl
Would you really?
Lichdom is not some sort of price you pay. It's a goal unto itself, silly.
Although if I were to take a partner in research I would prefer a dryad. It would certainly be... interesting.
There's no beauty like that which is found in melancholy.
