* HandGagging: [[http://www.earsforelves.com/archives/645 This is done suddenly to Tanna]] while she's hiding in the temple. Whose hand it is isn't revealed until some pages afterwards, creating suspense. When Luero finally releases her, after the priestess has left, Tanna jumps out and it's shown that even she didn't know who was holding her.

''[[http://www.earsforelves.com/ Ears for Elves]]'' is a lighthearted webcomic on [[HighFantasy the high end of the fantasy scale]], with touches of HeroicFantasy. It follows the story of [[RebelliousPrincess Tanna Teasen'atear]] as she grows from a youngling into adulthood and finds her place in elven society. Started in 2011, it is the first online graphic novel by Naarie Kermie, though it is currently on hiatus. The site is maintained and edited by Archmage, and links to us, accounting for the high number of inbounds -- our character sheet has even replaced the official one (though that's still accessible through the direct URL)!

It's always been expected that Tanna, a highborn wood-elf, would follow in her parent's footsteps and be the model nobleman's daughter -- even her friend Zalanna tries to push her into this role. However, Tanna doesn't like being cast in that way, and dreams of being a Village Guardian, practicing shooting and tracking often in hopes of becoming as good as warrior Luero. Others don't believe she'll ever make it, especially with having to babysit her younger brother Donn alongside all that she does, but she's gone too far away from the world of dancing and meetings that her parents are part of to reconsider.

Enter Drethalrolan, not that Tanna can remember his name. He's a high elf, and for this reason a number wood elves are prejudiced against him. His charming ways from a different culture win over many of them, but at first Tanna views them as arrogant and annoying. However, after sorting out some misunderstandings they become friends -- leading to ''more'' misunderstandings when Donn mistakes Rolan for Tanna's boyfriend.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Understatement}}: One is used in the author's comments. After a long and unexpected hiatus, the webcomic updated with a page proclaiming simply, "Soon". Naarie pointed out in her blurb beneath the image that there was a subtle hint to be found.

Added DiffLines:

* StunnedSilence: After Tanna's rant at Rolan [[ThatCameOutWrong came out wrong]], the various Elven ladies are shocked into silence at the idea of her being pushed to the ground by a high-born male elf. This is indicated in the comic by the artist not drawing their mouths in the BeatPanel.

* BlankFaceOfShame: The artist takes inspiration from manga and uses this on several characters. It happens to Elon [[http://www.earsforelves.com/archives/209 here]], after an exasperating attempt at warning Myari about the forest that ended with his embarrassment.



* ColorFailure: As much as there can be in a predominantly grayscale comic. One time, it happens partially to Elon [[http://www.earsforelves.com/archives/209 here]], after an exasperating attempt at warning Myari about the forest.


Added DiffLines:

* SplashOfColor: The only time color has been used in the main comic was for blood drips from a dark elf. They are spattered across the page, making it more ominous.
