any single high fantasy ever: elves are pretty, slender twinks who pass most of their time doing very ethereal and magic stuff, they only eat vegetables and they’re light creatures who despise darkness uwu
J.R.R. Tolkien: there are elves who are taller than two meters unironically. Their eyes shine of a terrible divine flame that makes them look like gods of war. They started civil wars for jewels. They can literally fight fire demons like it’s not a big deal and wrestle with werewolves with their bare hands. Fuck you.
