Saw Desolation of Smaug! By thinking it was AU fanfiction I managed to call bullshit only on Kili’s and Tauriel’s romance. I mean, Tauriel is awesome but now she is played only as a love interest (all her decisions were somehow about Kili) and the romance itself is overly cliché at times. Like the illuminated Tauriel and Kili’s feverish mumbling, jesus… Repeat after me, PJ: YOU CAN ADD FEMALE CHARACTERS WITHOUT GIVING THEM A ROMANCE PLOT. THEY CAN BE RELEVANT IN OTHER SENSES - JUST LIKE THE MALE CHARACTERS YOU’VE BEEN ADDING.
