A Dream From Kili...& A New Perspective
A story is usually written from one person's point of view. In the case of "The Hobbit", it's told from Bilbo's point of view, in which case a thousand different things could have happened to the 13 dwarves, and Bilbo wouldn't have known a single thing about it, as he wouldn't have been with them for every second of the journey. Therefore, if each of the dwarves were to write their own version of "The Hobbit", each book would be different, in view of the fact that every single person (dwarf, elf, hobbit, dragon, etc...) has their own unique way of writing and telling a story. I think the whole "flirting/romance" between Me (Kili) and Tauriel, could have happened and just not written down, as Bilbo never really saw Tauriel, and didn't have any interactions with her like some of the dwarves did. Just like Thorin was the only one (in the movie) that talked to Thranduil, none of the others had any conversation with him. Each telling of the same story (journey) would be slightly different. Combine all the tidbits that happened to each of the company, and you have the brilliant movie that Peter Jackson made for the Tolkien/Middle Earth fandom: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Side Note: I thought of this while having a dream of all the dwarves in the Mirkwood palace dungeon's. I was narrating my dream while I had it.
