A letter, a surprise and a gift to a friend

From time to time, a special request like this one pops up here and its own nature calls for and deserves a dedicated post as it’s deeply unconventional and personal, having an unique beauty of its own.

This time, Nicholas Lima requested two letters to be translated into Quenya as he planned a special birthday gift for his friend Heidi. Here is the final result and the product Quenya101 delivered to him. We hope we might have helped his surprise gift made in the end of January 2018 and would love to hear from him or Heidi here. That would be extra cool, huh?

By the way, if you want YOUR request to be answered, be it long or short, please make your request at https://quenya101.com/ask/ and Q101 will accurately translate it to you!

Anyway, here it goes:

Nicholas Letter 1

Original

Dear Heidi,

The elven greeting “Elen síla lúmenn’ omentielvo” couldn’t be more fitting to talk about our long friendship. Since that fortuitous day over a decade ago our friendship has been like the light of Eärendil, a bright star always shining on our life, always illuminating our path and giving us hope and strength even in our darkest hours.

On this day which marks your birth, I wish you all the happiness in the universe and that you always have a long and blessed life. I hope this book brings you a lifetime of adventure, fun and awe with the epic history of our beloved Middle-Earth.

May the light of the Two Trees of Valinor always shine upon and blesses your life.

With love, from your friend,

Nicholas

Nicholas Letter 2

Happy Birthday Heidi!

I wish you all the happiness in the world and that you have a very long and heathy life, full of joyful and beautiful days. I hope you have many more years of pleasure following Bilbo and his friends in their journey “There and Back Again”. Nai tiruvantel ar varyuvantel i Valar tielyanna nu vilya.

Yours always,

Nicholas
