It Was a Dream by animenadie It Was a Dream by animenadie
Due in part to the hate surrounding it, I took a close look at the Kili/Tauriel thing every time I saw the movie.

Then I found myself on the sinking ship. I REGRET NOTHING. :D

... Except how the third movie will likely end.

Is it bad to say I'm upset it DIDN'T end this way?  *tear*

I feel the same way...I expected huge wave of feels and nothing happened :| (Blank Stare)

I have gone from super upset that Kili died to wrathful because Tauriel just randomly lived (where was she for the stink'n ring fiasco?!?!)...I want to watch the Extended Edition to see if they left out anything that was actually VITAL to the pairing! I so think she should have died next to him...I thought at least that would give us a fulfilling romantic Romeo-Juliet ending. ahh...
Oh, and love your pic :D (Big Grin)

This was how it should have been in Battle of the Five Armies. Fighting and dying together, sad at their passing but not regretting one moment of it.

Also in the Extended Edition they should have had her buried next to Kili inside Erebor. the first Elf ever accorded such an honor.

"Then I found myself on the sinking ship. I REGRET NOTHING."  Hee hee, well said.  As a hardcore fan of wood elves, I fell in love with Tauriel immediately.  And then also being a hopeless romantic, well, let's just say all the fangirl feels were overpowering that little voice in the back of my head of Canon and Better Judgment.  But as you say, no regrets.  :D

Your artwork is lovely.  I like the detail of the broken sword.

Sadly, this is how I picture this love ending in the third movie =( It breaks my heart. I'm not ready to lose Kili, Fili, or Thorin.

as much as i would like to NOT see this ending it could come to pass. in the book kili dies protecting thorin but we will have to wait and see what happens to Tauriel because she is an original character made for the movie.

Since Tauriel started out as just an extra Elf who served as Galadriel's handmaiden during the Lord of the Rings movies, before she got this job, I like to believe that she leaves Mirkwood for Lothlorien to serve Galadriel.

............every time I look at this, I hate you. 


All the fangirling aside, I absolutely love the detail on Kli's clothing, and especially his broken sword.  It resonates, and breaks my heart.  Awesome piece.

Yeah it's sad really. I don't know what Jackson is gonna do, but I am almost sure they both will or live or die. They will be together one way or an other.
HideTheDecay Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Really the only reason I hate it is exactly this right here. If they make Kili's death about her, it'll ruin it entirely for me. I really loved the way they approach Thorin/Fili/Kili's relationships and Kili is supposed to die for Thorin, protecting him out of love and loyalty. When you take that away and make it about Tauriel, even if he has genuine feelings for her, you're taking away the family message to me and I absolutely loathe that. I never wanted Fili and Kili and Thorin to die, but I was still really excited to see it play out and have the family feels. If they do love interest feels instead... -sigh-

I totally agree with you!
Hermy-one Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I like that. Tauriel could join Kili in defending Thorin. In the books remember many elves did? 
Hermy-one Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ohh and thats why Legolas could hate dwarves so much in the FotR movie. He wasnt like that in the books. His lost his love twice to dwarves.
