Anonymous said: I'm sorry but elves just look wrong as POC, they lose so much of their ethereal beauty and the purity that they represent.
*makes hour-long fart noises*
"Im sorry but black people cant be elves because black people arent beautiful or good"
Please tell me this anon is fucking joking.
Poc can’t be pure apparently
This is something a friend of mine actually said to my face while I was talking about diversity in books the other day. I really don’t understand how people could think it’s strange for a fictional mythical creature to have darker skin. If it’s about staying close to the original, then why do they think it’s fine for vampires to walk out in the sun? Why do they use Tolkien as a source instead of the original elves? And if it’s about beauty and purity… how can they not see how racist they are? How blinded can they be by their own hateful delusions?
I hope the anon trips and falls into a pile of wet shit for their disgusting, racist delusions
like seriously I don’t even have a longwinded educational comeback for that they’re just disgusting fucking hell ew anon I wish upon you allergies to everything and a rash in your privates
And I hope you know how ugly and impure and dirty you are
I wish your kind didn’t exist, anon, but here we are
I feel dirty just looking at your comment
My skin is crawling
Bask in the apparent “impurity” of my PoC elves you shitstain-anon
Impure and “unethereal” my ass
elves are elves, people are people, “pure white skin” or not. in fact, we need more dark skinned elves to add to this - i suggest others add their own art too.
Yeah but those are all dark elves. Or drow. And as you see none of them are represented as pure and good. Cigarettes, evil grins, scars. In eleven mythology, the elves ,who were pure and often represented in white, live above ground with pure and lawful ways while the dark elves live underground in a city teeming with evil and unfairness, thats just how the general mythology goes. I agree this anon was obviously backed by racial issues but that doesn’t mean they is correct in facts.
What makes you think all of those examples are dark elves?? The cool thing about making your characters is there are no boundaries and the elves people make don’t have to be dark elves just because they have dark skin??? You can have dark skin and be pure and beautiful and good??? what is it that automatically makes people link dark colors to bad things?? Why does it always have to be the white elves are pure and good??? Maybe not everyone who has elven characters are using the mythology you’re thinking of?? Why does having a scar automatically make them evil???
