As soon as I heard about this character, I was very angry because I thought she was going to be just a throw away love interest for Legolas, but I was surprized when I watched the "Desolation of Smaug" movie, which was amazing by the way I personally like the idea of Peter Jackson putting in a female character for the Hobbit movies, since the book had none. I love the way she is, and I love how she is a very skilled fighter (like Legolas.) Most of all, I love how she didn't really have a love connection with Legolas, because it wouldn't have made sense, but instead with Kili. Kili x Tauriel is my new OTP
Anyway, I know people dislike this character because either she wasn't in the book, or they just find her boring and pointless, but Arwen seemed more pointless and boring than Tauriel. Yes I know a lot of you are going to hate me for saying that, but Arwen always bores me, and she does nothing in the last two Lord of the Rings movies except cry and think about Aragorn. I know that in the book that their relationship was talked about more, but I found Tauriel was a better and more interesting elf than Arwen. Just my opinion, please no hating.
So yeah, I love this character, and I am looking forward to seeing her in the last movie
I thought the same thing! I hated the idea of Tauriel before I watched the movie. But now, she's definitly one of my fave characters!
I like her way better then Arwen x3
