When it comes to the skin color of elves, I couldn't give a rat's ass about " the rules " of how elves are supposed to look like. Elves can come in ANY color of a person's personal choice. No-one tells me how to create my own original authentic characters because personally, when it comes to personal expression and freedom of choice, its only those who are either a bunch of politically correct fantasy fanatics or a bunch of racists who fear diversity.

I think the same in that point, I’m just upset because posts complaining about people who dont want this one lotr kind of elf to be darkskinned have like a million notes and it’s upsetting me, like, it’s everyones personal choice

btw if anyone wants to read a rly good book about elves made up completely different from our humans read Nijura by Jenny May-Nuyen, it’s really good, contains some plot twists, extremely strong female aswell as male characters and a nice representation of fantasy creatures :>

False rape accusations are an anomaly.

True rape accusations are a norm.

You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.

Re-blog now, read later.

"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”

She started to talk to him about his interests and her kidnapper began to view her as a person he could trust. Eventually, he declared that he was in love with her. After 10 days of captivity, he allowed Elizabeth to borrow his cell phone to play games on it. Naturally, when he left, she used it to call her mother.

This is actually a smart thing to do. If you are ever kidnapped, you should try to humanize yourself & get close to your captors. Do not challenge them, rather try to show them that you are worthy of their respect. If you speak the same language, try to talk with them and exchange information. Learn about them and let them learn about you. Try to relate to them.  Family could be a safe topic depending on the situation. If they see you as a person, your quality of life as a captive and your probability of survival go way up. This creates the reverse-Stockholm Syndrome on them in which they can express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings towards you. Now you might have the opportunity to escape like the girl above did!

on the elf thing I personally believe that forest elfs are whitish green skinned, but swamp elves for excample have harder and more brownish skin because they are from their entire being closer to the earth, forest elfs built treehouses and stuff and are very bright beings while swamp elfs are rather on the ground you feel

I’d maybe even go that far and give forest elfs a bit of fur on their body while I give swamp elfs something like a crust or scales that protect them from getting hurt too easily

and of course there are a lot of other kinds of elfs with different skincolours, also I’m completely behind mermaids basically being seaelfs and being fishy blue with fins everywhere like no bigbreasted supegirls but still really attractive (not to me tho im scared of fishes and water, if a sylph would come up to me and sing she could be the hottest thing ive ever seen i’d most likely say “no thanks I’m fine”)

ans all elfs have their kind of beauty, while forest elfs are damn bright, swamp elfs are rather mysterious :v 

but you know skincolours exist for a reason, like the dark skincolour saves the people in africa from the burning sun, nature didn’t calculate sunscreen and staying below a roof all day, thats also why in colder countries peoples skincolour is brighter, they don’t need that protection

you can’t just make fictional creatures in fictional universes a specific skincolour just “because diversity”, that’s not our culture, that’s not even our universe. you can literally make up whatever colour you want and you choose pinkish and brownish? lame
