Everytime a person states that black elves are IMPOSSIBLE thanks to Elves’ Nordic origins in the scheme of “which myths inspire which” I find myself with one reaction.
And I am going to break down WHY. Because the fact is- they are wrong. I’m not even talking about “Historical Accuracy” here (which btw there were Black people in Scandinavia. It happened. They weren’t average, I’ll give you that, but still- they were possible. Also given quotes because we all know this excuse is bullshit since we are dealing with ELVES which are a MADE UP RACE). You see, no, I’m not talking about perceived History. I’m talking about mythological accuracy.
Ooooh, got you interested, didn’t I? As a person who sat on my Swedish Grandmother’s knee as she taught me to paint Hope Chests and regaled me of ye olde stories from ye olde times, and who has since then studied the hell up and started worshiping a being from the Norse pantheon, I have gathered some info. It’s time to crack open your books/web articles/encyclopedia pages people, we’re about to get serious.
