Hanako, you say you are arguing greatly with me here, but I don't really see how we disagree. Perhaps you can clarify what I said that makes you think so. I think you're right that the night elves have suffered a great shock and have shown some very selfless and sacrificial behavior in the course of their adventures. What I haven't liked is the way *some* of them are so haughty and proud about it, as if they deserve special treatment because they made all these sacrifices. Fandral Staghelm, in particular, is quite an unpleasant fellow, and he has done a lot of harm by trying to regrow a new world tree in order to get immortality back. The dragons did not approve of this action, nor find it in harmony with the balance of nature.I think one of the things you may sense in my article is that I feel the night elves are the most "emo" of the Warcraft races. There are too many melodramatic and petty actions they take, and too many contradictions in their history for them to be really believable to me.The do look cool, though, and there are some good elements in their story, too, so it's not all bad. At some point I'd like to come back and do a bit of editing on all my articles to polish them up and link them all together as a whole; so maybe when I do that I'll try to go back and remove any of this bias I may have expressed against the night elf story here. I'm glad that the story is one of your favorites, and I'll try to see it from that perspective when I look at it again.
