SJM literally leaves just enough crumbs for all your possible ships because it will keep you talking about the books and being invested to buy future releases. There’s a reason BAM had an Azriel scene and the reason Waterstones/B&N/Indigo had a Feysand scene with a tiny Elain/Lucien mention. It’s to keep us talking about it . There was absolutely no need to add any mention of any other characters to that scene it’s done intentionally. Everyone’s feelings are valid so don’t be a dick to people.
Edit: Elain wearing or not wearing gloves can back either ship.
Elriel: She didn’t wear them because she hates the idea of a mate so much she can’t even handle a gift he got her.
Elucien: She forgot about them or forgot to put them on. Doesn’t say she’s never worn them. It’s sort of implied by Feyre but she gardens all over town it’s possible she’s just never seen it.
Other: Elain is so damn tired of not having control she likes the feel of the dirt on her hands as a tether.
