Alleria's been stuck with hers a lot longer than expected, so I imagine she'll want out soon.

Oh that's why she starting playing around with the void! It's that old trick of taking up a bad/annoying habit to try and drive your other half into breaking up with you.


There's a tentacle joke in there somewhere.

Windrunners are all degenerates. BASED Elisande called it how she saw it.

[quote] Quel'dorei? You are peasants playing at nobility, all too willing to mingle with lesser races that dilute your bloodline. You are unworthy of the name High Elves.


Elisande was a hypocrite getting down and dirty with demons. I've seen picture proof :P

...

confirmed, all male elves have pencil thin peckers.


Wanna see my... "two-handed weapon?"


two handed for a gnome is not two handed for the rest of us.
Where are the Nelf/Human Nelf/Draen couples Dwarf/Human, Dwarf/Elf couples in this game?

Right now I only know of orc/draen, orc/human and elf/human hybrid children
It's simple. Male Elves have tiny you know whats. Human males have big, thick, burly ones in comparison.
Half-Elves are kind of just 'there' in a large number of fantasy settings.

The difference is that in most of those, there's usually just one or two kinds of elf.

In WoW, we have how many types of elves? High Elf, Blood Elf, Night Elf, Void Elf, Nightborne, and how many others yet to come?

Judging by Arthas, that's obviously not true.

Besides, Elves are descended from Trolls. Theirs are massive, and far more energetic than weak Humans.

in the comic she alludes to the fact that their relationship isn't going very well and that she's probably only staying with him due to Arator (who is the only one she mentioned as being her anchor of mental stability), she didn't expect to get stuck with him for so long when they hooked up.

but in the span of 7000+ years you can either be with 1 elf or like 70+ humans.


That's not what the comic implied at all.
The strain doesn't come from being together for so long. The strain comes from the fact that because of Turalyon' being light forged and Alleria being a super saiyan void monster, the very act of touching each other is painful for both parties.
As you can imagine, lovers who can't touch each other isn't a very good dynamic unless you were both born in the southern United States and have freaky mutant powers.

There's also the fact that Turalyon kept putting that stupid windchime before her, even though he was very conflicted over it and held doubts about Xe'ra according to that audio book.

Dwarves tend to frown upon inter-species unions. They don't even like it when humans and elves get together, and those unions have absolutely nothing to do with them.

There's a gnome and human husband and wife duo in Sholazaar basin.

Keeshan and Shandris were shown to have some minor chemistry in the BfA beta, and unions between Draenei/Nelf and Human/Nelf will probably grow now that Stormwind and the Exodar are filled with Night Elves that have no place to go and nothing but time to hang out with Humans and Draenei and forcefully adapt to their way of life.

If massive meant so teeny tiny, oh god that's embarrassingly small, you'd be right.
Only high elves want to be with humans.

No self respecting night elf, blood elf or nightborne would ever be with humans. They already know that they are better than humans..and ever other race. You see how they talk down to the other races. That's part of Elven culture. Don't know wtf happened with High Elves considering they used to be highborne just like the nightborne used to be.

Elisande was 100% right about them.

Or maybe, you know high elves aren't snobs like you guys. Also don't drag the Nightelves into this mate, they don't need you to speak for them.
Simply put, because they are allowed to be, to my knowledge night elf society has never had humans with night elves.

Night elf society is a inward group when it comes to long term relationship, there is a bond of kinship and one must favor this or be shunned.

Blood elf society is a little more outward, while the choice to be with a human is NOT favored, it is not uncommon. The windrunner sisters, and Kael'Thas Sunstrider were very interested in human lovers/partners.

If the society deemed it outlawed or worthy of death, then the society would teach the generations to come that this was not welcomed and grow towards a more purist ideology.

Not all Elves are hot under the collar for humans, not all humans are hot under the collar for elves.

This could absolutely be a fantasy-style quirk that authors tend to have, wanting the hourglass thin beautiful character that a human (the author or individual) could obtain.

Another thing to add is when the high elves were exiled by the night elves, the humans took them in, some could very much see them as a like-minded group who welcomed outward ideas and ways of life. It wasnt until the Alliance betrayed the High elves of Silvermoon that the bridge between the humans and now blood elves was broken.

Really don't want to delve into this too much size doesnt matter when magic IS your race's birthright.

but it has already been researched and proven that blood elves are bigger than humans , it goes into both male length and female depth... so weird but it was done.

Since these elves live thousands of years, would being married to a human be considered a 100 year "fling"?


Shorter human life span acts as a prenup.
Darling, humans will hook up with just about anything....half elves, half orcs, half dragons, half vampires, half demons and half angels. They get around. Though I am glad not to hear about too many half gnomes.....that is just a little creepy eh

This. High elves and night elves yearn for the touch of the mighty goblin, though they will never be obliged.
It doesn't really make sense. Why do elves have such big ears and eyebrows if they aren't part of sexual display? They clearly serve no functional purpose.
Tolkien set the precedent when Arwen married Aragorn. And she gave up her immortality, still outlived him by hundreds of years, and literally died alone. I'd hope these elf ladies don't get that attached.
Seems like it would be the same as even 2 humans getting married.

Either way, one of you is likely dying first, and the other one is moving on.
The lifespan of blood elves got retconned recently, so got to factor in that as well. 300-400 was the max lifespan for them before they changed it.
