a species of fantasy people that live up to ten years - humans would be like elves from their perspective.

Exercise for the reader: Extrapolate.

@zatnosk I thiiiiink The Nome Trilogy by Terry Pratchett touched on that stuff, although humans are more like giants there

@grainloom I've read those, but humans are so far away from their world that their lifespan is irrelevant.

@zatnosk Vernor Vinge wrote a SF short story with that premise (among others): Original Sin.

@InspectorCaracal that's not far off. Although, I was thinking of a humanlike humanoid, myself.
