tolkien’s/peter jackson’s elves are literally the most extra creatures ever. galadriel gets in a swan boat just for the aesthetic. arwen has at least three beds for dramatically moping. the elves have a whole land of immortality where they go when they just can’t even deal anymore. don’t even get me started on thranduil.
Don’t forget that if they lose a loved one they just fade out of existence from grief.
They take their oaths and promises so literally they will curse themselves to a life of misery and pain until it is fulfilled (which it never is).
Will commit genocide and kill their own family over some pretty rocks.
So, yeah, Elves are melodramatic little shits.
