Is the story about elves living among humans in present day truth of fiction? It all depends on what you think an elf is.

Greetings to you Lord-
I am surprised and grateful to find evidence of you. I too have long known that I was not like the teeming masses. As a teenager I read LOTR and other books and felt as if I was a changeling. An elf-child raised by humans who would never understand him and indeed were threatned by his light. I dressed as my true self much when younger, and called myself elf to all my friends. Played D&D of course and was usually elfin. Today I am 36, gay male, in relationship for i6 years and father of twin girls who shall be raised in the light. Hail to you. Elen sila lumen omentielmo.
Keith
Thank you for your kind words. May you shine the light on all you meet.

I here what your saying I have grown up and lived in a Humans world and tryed to live like an elf but they do not make it a task that is overcom as it is with any other outcast thing. I live and awakin all others of differen blood. and lead a band of misfits. To the truth and still some think me crazd. living the the humans is not a task for the weak so I fight for all that is not to live in a world of reson!

Hmmmmm where to start..... well being a fellow elf i shall start but saying greetings. If everything you wrote here is true i would greatly love an email in response, we would have much to talk about. unlike you a was born in the golden forests and have been razed for nearly all my 99 years in the elven home outside that of human world. My name is Silverwolf, i am an elven ranger and im often sent out into the human society to look for others such as yourself. no harm taken i hope but especially others who tell the human world about us. mankind is weak and i almost found it amusing that you said the people with the piecings and leather are elves again i mean no harm but true elves settle for nothing but golden silver white and forest green silk for clothing and decorate themselves in the jewels of the golden forest and seek only solitude from humans and wish for them not to know we exist, and of corse we always since we were made from the forest and earth have looked for peace joy enlightment merrymaking and love as natures children. write back if you wish questions or to learn more about the kinship outside of human influence. flareth wes

Enchanted greetings, elf lord Amandil. May the light of Elbereth be your guardian and your guide in this fading land of dwindling trees. I've see our exiled kindred by the flowing river waters in the twilight. They walk in the living dream of what was, what is, and what yet may be.
The way to the blessed realm is lost to us, but we are not lost to they who dwell therein.
Earendil will yet return for the sundered kindred.
Listen carefully. The winds whisper the time of
his return. The trees share their wisdom to the
quiet mind.
A fellow exile, I am Earanin of the Avari.
I have many; Yet the one I will use is Laent.

greetings,
not everything about the race of men is so awful!
I, myself, am an elf. Being a teenage elf in a human world is hard. Yet, i have earned my place of respect as a wise one. I do not know how to cast spells, so my ears are sovered with my hair. They are only slightly pointy, yet the more i awaken, the more pointy they "seem to get". People have taken notice to this. But, yet i am wise, i need guidance. My parents of course dismiss my claim. I need guidance, in everything. The only magic i know is this: I have a mirror in my room, i bought it at the drugstore. two nights ago,it was 12:00 a.m., that my blue eyes were strangely glowing in the darkness. I was scared out of my wits. Yet i have known this before. I stare into the mirror, and i see things that have been. In my mind. It is so hard to explain. So, please, someone whoever you are elf, i need guidance. In magic and all that sort of thing.
thankyou,

found: Aelvenhome website

Hi. I just came across your site. I am still a little confused with the elven thing (not an identity crisis-thankfully). Iíve known that I am of elven blood but I lack some of the problems that others have living in this world so I am pretty sure that I am not fully elven. Some elves have problems with certain metals, I love to work with any and all, including iron although working around flames isnít my strong point. Some also have problems with foods, the only one that I have had issues with is alcohol-Nyquil is lethal for me. I havenít d too many problems living in this world other than I donít fit in anywhere, but it is interesting to explain to my pagan friends why my magic is so odd. One canít understand how I can use any at all (okay, being a pyrophobe is getting very annoying).
My major problem is that I seem to have a second set of memories, but there are big holes missing, some of which happen to be why I am a pyrophobe. Many of the memories involve weredragons (not directly related to the pyrophobe bit). I donít know if you know anything about them or other nonhumans who arenít of elven blood but if you have heard of anything it would be helpful. I know several others who are not human and they are probably all that keep me sane when all the places of magic are being destroyed near where I live; I just hope my grove is still standing when I get home.
Thank you,

found: search engine

Hello, my name is Brendan. I will not reveal my elvish name because as of yet, I am unsure as to the truthful nature of your claims and are fearful of retribution. For years I have toiled on this earth, always in the presence of mortals. As I never aged, I only watched my loved ones wither away and die. After 150 years, I began to suspect that I was not of the same lineage as the rest of these humans. At first I was elated at my immortal status, but as time passed, it became a burden. If only I could find someone of my same race and lineage to share my troubles with. If you truly are an elven Lord, I humble myself at your feet. Please, if you are only jesting, let me know, these last thousand years have been far too hard on me. Let me know.
Always in your service m'lord,
"Brendan"

found: My father told me that Elves are starting to reemerge themselves more and more and to learn more about them. He told me that I will learn something I have always known about myself. That's how I came to look for information about Elves.

Hello. Before I explain my need to contact you, let me introduce myself. My birthname is Lasmy, in Thai it means MoonChild. My father told me, that I was given that name because he was told,even before my mother came to bare me, and had many dreams, that one day when times were darkest, I would shine a light upon the world. I'm not sure if I am truly Elven. Although, the more I learn, the more my identity points to it. My father is a 6th generation witch. Growing up, I had always thought that that was why I was different, but yet, I still did not feel right calling myself a witch. My father easily accepted that.
Now, this is why I felt the urgent need to contact you. All my life I have seen, felt, and heard things that I can not explain, and some that I can. Lately I have had this unnerving feeling that something is coming. Something I cannot explain except to say that it is evil and dark. I have also heard whispers from the trees and winds, they are telling me there is a new coming and I must prepair. Although, I do not know for what. I would like to discuss this further with you. Please e-mail me back.

found: I found you from the Elvish webring from the Aelvehome website.

I happened upon the Aelvenhome website and yours was the next site on the ring. I've always known I was different, but only recently discovered that I am an Elf. I read the Silmarillion and it felt so familiar to me, it resonated so deeply within me, that I finally knew who and what I really am. I'm very glad to be finding other Elves, since for the longest time I was afraid that I was the only one, that there weren't others like me. I'm still discovering my true self, regaining memories and going through a sort of change, I guess you could say. I live in Oregon right now, which I love, but very soon this life will take me to New York. I am going for a very good reason, to help support my brother and best friend. They both have Elvish elements to their personality, but I am not sure whether they are actually Elves or whether they are friends, or possibly half-Elven. At any rate, I am very glad I found others before I have to go to the city - maybe now I can keep in touch with some Elves while I am away from my forests.

Bow down before me you insolent little fool before I destroy you with my magic elf powers. I hereby strip you of your right to call yourself an elf. You are now nothing but a common fairy.

Salutations,
I am very, very lost and confused. I am in hopes you may be the one to help me. There are many of my friends who claim I may very well be a "latent Elf." They base this upon the fact that magick comes very easily with me, I am not forced to do magick but started doing it by my own free will, and I have "natural abilities". They also mentioned something about an "awakening"... hm what!? I really don't have much knowledge of the Elven ways so, any information on that would be grand. Thank you so much.

Thankyou for revealing that you are an elf I have no questions to this nor wish to challenge your claims. But interesting enought that surnames have some revealing factors such as mine. The surname Elwood has it roots from elfin wauld means elfin = elf, wauld = ruler, hence ruler of the elves. Welcome brother to the world of enchantments. Blessed be you and your love ones. Sorry to hear that you have received such hate mail, through revealing that if you're Gay through the elf metaphorically. It is a beautiful metaphor you have created and inspired by your knowlege of the elves. It saddens and pains me greatly that your uniqueness is hostilely regeted by those who cannot understand. I too am Gay and it never dawned on me how the elves lifes are so parallel to the life of a Gay person.

found: on a Tolkien website.

It's refreshing to learn of so many people (elves) embracing their own visions of how the world could be. Tolkien wrote that Elves were like Adam and Eve before the fall. So Elves according to Tolkien are perfect, immortal, wise, goodlooking etc. If you've read any Jungian sychology, in a nutshell, embracing one's own weirdness is the only sane thing to do. If one wants to be happy that is.

ps : I have some elf ears too.
PSS : I mean, dude, who wouldn't want to be as good looking as a Tolkien/Jackson Elf?

Also, anybody who says " Legolas is gay " is just jealous because every chick I know begins drueling at the mention of his name.

You don't seem to be to generous on answers, so I won't bore you with my life story, it is quite similar yours, though I am much younger.
My main reason is that when you (and many other elves)say "our time will come", I wonder how can it come if we are so passive? We have to do something, to gather, to cooperate; for nothing will happen if we don't make it happen and I have a weak feeling that the time has come for us.

For all those who believe hit this site up, http://www.chriswetherell.com/elf/

After I read most of your information that you have on your site I just knew that I was like that. I my not have fair skin, on the contrary I have freckels, I may nothave bolnd hair, on the other hand it's brown. I don't let this stop me from believing that I am an Elf. I knew since I was young that I was different from the other kids that I grew up with and I stongly believe that some other people knew that I was different too so they shunned me while others excepted me. I know what I am but It's hard to make others believe that you are what you are when your afraid that they won't understand. I have a few friends that I can talk to about anything and everything and I know that She'll understand, But others? I don't know. I'm going to leave now and impart a very intresting comment for all of those who are racist towards people like us, "You are not born a racist.

Hello! You are an elf? I am too. I have been wondering for a long time why I am the way I am. I was left wondering why Lord of the Rings made me cry and why the wind loves me. I was wondering why I have almost transparent skin and unusual blue eyes and why my hair changes its color sometimes. You wrote that you couldn't "come out". I told my friends about it and I told my boyfriend and they all thought it was great to know an elf. Well, I started by trying to be a witch and then I found the rest. May a star shine upon the next hour of our meeting, Lady Lorien Thank you for your excellent letter, Lady Lorien.

Thank the Valar! One more of my elvish race! It greatly joys me to find another. But i am only a half-elf. i have no point to my ears or terribly good eye-sight.But I seem to be able to hear and notice things others do not, and i joy in the company of trees. I am still not sure that i do contain elven blood, but i do hope it is so. I keep wanting to climb trees, and i have blond hair and blue eyes. I can speek some elvish and i can speek to budgies and seagulls. Namarie, mellon nin.

Hiya,
I think it is very cool that there are real elves out there, i'm actually not of the elvish race, but i have strong interest in it. I was wondering as there are real life vampires (no they do not go round sucking people's blood and they aren;t really evil; they are people who will attempt to do as much as they possibly can in their lives, and learn to be wise) are these real life vampires possibly almost a different branch of the elvish race?
Hmmm. I don't think I've ever met a vampire, but everything I've ever heard about them says that they do drink blood.

Greetings from Lochan
according to your experience it does matches with mine.I was born in the country called Nepal,
known as country of peace, full of Greenery and Himalayas(MT.Everest)is its Crown uncountable rivers, springs and streams.I am Different with my friends around me .The way i think is totally different form their thinking and so am i. i am in Hong Kong now , i think my fate is so , i have to travel a lot.The most extraordinary thing is that i feel like nature is trying to talk with me .Trees attracts me. where ever i am ,something whispers to me , trying to tell me something but i think i am still not ready to understand them. But my ears are not pointed though its biger and unusual.
Thanks for your kind letter, Lochan. I'm always glad to hear from elves in other parts of the world.

First of all, I do not claim to be from any tolkeinish work, or have visible pointy ears, or anything like that. However, I am very much an elf. It's been me my whole life. I read so many messages written to you by people who either think you are crazy, or are confused themselves. My suggestion to these people-one person does not neccesarily have all the answers...and search around, at least go to www.otherkin.net before you generalize!-eesh.

Hail & Well Met! (one cliche' a day is acceptable):
Thoroughly enjoyed your commentary, Good Sir! Uproariously funny! You made every effort, save putting up a flashing neon sign, to instruct readers on what your writing was about.
For those whom you have stirred to anger:
Wit, like fine wine, must cross a palate capable of appreciating it; I suspect many of those angered find both to be poor nourishment for the wastlands of their intellect.
Bravo to you & thank you for the enjoyable reading,

My name is Maranwe or at least that's what my friends call me. I think I am an Elf, how do I tell. I don't understand why I feel like I should be Elven. I mean I've always took interest in Elves and fantasy stories as did I write one. But my friend, Alatariel,is fair of skin and very smart. She is blonde of hair and green of eyes. She hunts with a bow and arrow. We are both in tune with nature and we love our names, (Maranwe, Alatariel). Many people feel a close kinship with elves. Feel it, live it, enjoy it!

A kid once walked up to Ray Bradbury at a science fiction convention. He held up a neat notebook for Ray Bradbury to read. "Mt. Bradbury, am I a writer?" the boy asked. "No," Bradbury answered. "You're not a writer. Run along now."

Another kid ran up to Ray at the same convention, clutching a looseleaf notebook, trailing manuscript pages left and right, shouting, "Ray Bradbury! I'm a writer! I'm a writer!" And Bradbury broke off the conversation he was having, hugged the kid, and said, "Yes! You're a writer, you're a writer!"

I do have my beliefs of elvishness, though I try to hide it from the world to keep from more fears. I do have antel- and kakorrhaphiophobia, so I tend to keep quiet of this to keep from being shunned even more so than ever before. I do think I have a bit of insanity, but I also do have my beliefs. I think elves ARE exsistant in this cold, harsh, manworld, but I've managed to make it through to this point. May She bless your site, it is very entrancing and touching. Namarie,

shokotushinobi at aol.com

Elf-kind from around the world, my name is Arathalion en Gamrel of the Drakulf, also known as the half-breeds of the Sylvan race. I come to you with news that concerns all Elves. Very soon, as all of you know, humanity will reach it's apex - it's cities will spread over the earth in a way never seen before, destroying all that we hold sacred. In doing so, the balance between creation and destruction will be upset and the forces of destruction will be released upon the earth. In reformed Ibrahm we call him the demon Carathas, but it does not matter what name you give him... he is coming. You may think this a joke, but I assure you not. I welcome all e-mails and inquiries you might have. I wish to raise a standing army of Elves to combat this threat when it comes. I currently am in command of a force of approximatly 100 Elves of varying races and relgions with a strong following of loyal humans. You all know of the outcast feeling that comes with being around the human breed your entire life, and I offer you a gathering of our race like no other has seen before. I am the leader of the armies of the Midguard Alliance, son of the warrior-cleric Thaylen en Gamrel. My task is to create an army to defend our people and the royal Noldiri Elves at whatever cost. I appreciate your time. I hope to hear from every last one of you within the near future.

Great site, enjoyed reading it. Sad that some people take it all completely the wrong way, as if you seriously believed you were a literal elf, as in immortal species of mythology.

umm i just descovered a little while ago i was an elf,the way i found out was i noticed my pointed ears in the mirror,i was wondering,how does one lead the life of an elf? as you can see i am very comfused now..........i am only 12,and i would like to know the ways of an elf,i already know elvish...
but i would like to know more....each day i learn more but i haven't learned the ways of an elf,tho now i finally don't feel alone,i mean how can my parents understand if they aren't in the same race,but don't get me wrong...i am VERY close with my parents,but i think that being around other elves is great! by the way...i have spoted a few elves out in town,so i know that they are very real,i don't understand tho,my mum is a human.why am i a elf and her not?plzz help me

i feel better now knowing i am not alone as an elf,but i don't know how to make my parents beleave me,because i do not have very pointed ears

Most of what is known about elves is written in books about folklore. Brian Froud has published some nice ones, and there are plenty of stories about modern-day Urban Elves in the science fiction/fantasy sections of book stores. Then, of course, there's Tolkien.

As for how you can be an elf when youre parents are not, you should study changelings. (Odo is not a changeling. He's a metamorph.)

Your parents don't have to know. And it tends to bother them to think you're a changeling. They wonder where their "real" kid is.

I chose to believe there is something better out there. I have always been difrent. I am very thin and pale skined I am at home with nature. I do not care for material possesions. I do not care for drama or war. I am a lone alot becouse I do not trust easally; I wonder about the things called myth, They came from somewhere! And I seek knowlege about these things. I also belive that just becouse you cant see it dosent mean it isnt there. I fill very alone.

I'm not sure how to tell, but I truly believe myself an elf. Maybe not the fairest of all but definetly the brightest. I have known since I was able of cognitive thought there is no one else like me. No one else anywhere close to the level I'm on. Until I found this page I thought I would be an outcast the rest of my life. So I guess I've found somewhere I belong.

Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me if you have ever met an elf. I mean like a full blood. Is it posible to meet one like out in the woods? I personaly think that I am part elf. How do you actualy tell if you are an elf? I know you are like one, but how do you know? I've met some elves. Possibly one or the other of us didn't know someone was an elf…

  Hello! I was wondering if you could tell me what an elf is. Is it santa's helper? What does an elf look like? How does one act? What is thier personalities like? Elves generally have pointy ears. Aside from that they're as varied as humans or dwarves are. I'm not sure I want to do you research for you: I don't know who you are.
Riya My sister and I share an e-mail address. She thinks you are real. She e-mailed you once. But I know you were hit over the head when you were a baby and woke up with pointy ears. Then you thought you were an elf. You have serious issues and need a doctor (BAD).

Why don't you come to Eurban Elfhame to discuss it?
illoren I belong to the race of men.
But i want to be an elf somehow.

Can you help me?
if you can please let me know it

You don't have to be an elf to be an elf.

Look for the light within you: in your heart, in your mind. Find it and nurture it and develop the strength to be who you are. Then your elfin self will come to light.
