This is the end, my final friend, the end. Ainulindalë Quenyanna is officially finished. I took some prolonged vacations (too much time to be honest) of this project of mine, but now, here it is….THE end.
I thank everyone who is with me since its beginning, who is enjoying the ride and who liked the images, the text, the audio, it’s all there for you!
I’m happy and sad now. It’s fantastic to end such a complex project. It was tough and tiring sometimes. We all know how modern life sucks in any time we might have. I’m happy to have this mission accomplished (I didn’t know when I started if I could make it till the end) but it’s sad to know that this baby is never gonna be nurtured anymore. It’s already grown up! It’s gone! (Yes, my brain is weird sometimes….to quote Almárë at her Tumblr)
So, stay tuned at Ainulindalë section as there are a couple of paragraphs still to be written down and their audio to be released.
…and here is the final page of Ainulindalë Quenyanna…
…and so were his!
In this great day, I joyously announce the commendable tattooS of this Amazonian guy to the whole world to gaze upon in awe for his well-executed idea and be mesmerized by his own tribute to Father Tolkien and the Genesis of all elves, Ainulindalë. Let us sing the song of creation:
Minë né tumna ar palla’r vanya, mal’enca’r quanta únótima nyérëo, yallo vanesserya túlë ambë.
I exë sí enétie’rderya; mal nes róma, ar lusta, ar oialavë vorima; ar haryanes titta rainë
Yes, my fellow ones. Both arms inked with Ainulindalë itself! I praise him highly for such achievement! From now on, he is to be called and remembered here as The One With Ainulindalë. He has become part of our select group composed by: The One, The One In Female Form, The One With The Light, The One With The Force, The One With The Birdies, The One With The Time & The One With Things To Be Seen.
You can check the exact quote Vivaldo, errr… I mean The One With Ainulindalë took from the Ainulindalë Quenyanna here and here.
On this 7th day of September (to be more accurate 37th day of Yávië according to Imladris Reckoning), we open to the eyes of the public the art found in this 7th page (the penultimate) of Ainulindalë where you read about the Valar taking shapes on Earth and the greedy desires of Melkor’s heart to dominate and subjugate to his will all that there was.
What a beautiful Arda, Ilúvatar has made! Let all the Valar take care of it and prepare for the awakening of His children!
Here is the official release of page
of Ainulindalë Quenyanna.
The last one of the original copies of this part of Ainulindalë, was stolen by Sauron, distorted and used to influence the Númenóreans to worship DARKNESS. In Sauron’s version, Ilúvatar was guilty to use Eä and Arda to bound all Ainur to his enslaving and oppressing dominion. Melkor was the one who would free all creations from it, through the Void and its holy Darkness.
After the downfall of Númenor, this replica was brought by the faithful Elendilli to Middle-Earth and preserved by the elves of Lothlórien under the guidance of Galadriel (who could understand Quenya, the language of her childhood) was restored and mended, so the canonical value of it was not compromised by the filthy influence of Sauron’s thoughts.
Soon, paragraph by paragraph, word by word, will be analyzed in Ainulindalë Quenyanna section. Stay tuned!
5th page is among us! The most colorful page of them all so far. Archaeologists suggest that possibly the inks and designs were added much later than its actual writing. Scholars believe that Pengolod was the author but no real evidence on the matter is left for us. I tried to interview Rúmil the great Loremaster (who would help to clarify the matter and lives 2 blocks from my home here in Valinor) but he’s on vacation in Tol Eressëa Beach Resort, so I couldn’t have his expert opinion and evaluation.
Nevermind all the speculation, Ainulindalë Quenyanna Page 5 is now available for you! In this page we can read about the deep conversation between Ilúvatar and Ulmo; and also all the glory and beauty of Water, magnified by the evil deeds of Melkor.
Its analysis will come soon at Ainulindalë Quenyanna page, so don’t miss it! Stay tuned and learn more about the lore of old….
I have been thanked by Tolkiendilli many times. I’ve been using Twitter since August,2010 and my site opened up its elvish doors in February,2011. Many people have requested me names, sentences, words in Quenya…have commented about my posts, pages…and I often try to help every single one who come here with doubts, mistakes, questions.
Why am I saying this? Because I’m not the one to be thanked, you are! Every time you visit my site, every time you stop by and comment, every time you tweet about it and spread its word for more and more Tolkien fans to delight themselves in Quenya lore, every time you click on the yellow stars below to rate anything here (be it bad or good in your opinion)…
I THANK YOU! You are the one who makes this site goes on and on and if there wasn’t you, there wouldn’t be it. To celebrate it and to thank you through actions also, not only with words, I’ll present here the apple of my eye, the newly released Ainulindalë Quenyanna Page 4:
