7th Year +

CELEBRATION TIME!

Quenya101 starts its 7th year of life!

It began in a February, 3rd…just like this one here, but it was in a different world, in a different life, many things are left behind there and they are never coming back.

It began with a Welcome! post with no pretension at all. Actually, I had no idea what to do, what to write, how I would build this place wherein I would deposit everything that I love about this language.

It began with my words. My keyboard and words. Love was the fuel and in time, things started to grow, to develop, like an embryo.

One section here, another page there, let’s help people with this, now with that…and here I am, years later with millions of faithful elves joining the multitude of devoted Tolkien fans.

Now, Quenya101 has 61 special dates converted into the elvish calendar, 471 famous quotes translated, 524 posts published, 556 names etymologically composed, 4,084 words translated into Quenya, 8,892 comments and thousands (I really can say that) thousands of hours of my FREE time dedicated to Quenya101 Language Institute site.

But…

Why?

Because of YOU!

I’m here because of you. You are the ones who want it. You are the ones like myself who urge to learn, to understand, to have that written, pronounced, translated and explained in Quenya.

You want it, you got it!

Forgive me if I cannot deliver the amount you want and deserve. Millions of you are too many for one of me.

But I am here and I’m gonna try my best. Be sure of that.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for being there at the other side of the screen.

Year 6 brought some many new things! We were back with regular posts (some months almost in a daily basis…something never saw here), the creation of our OWN exclusive Tengwar Fonts as well as a new Tengwar Font Guide compiling the best there is currently. A SHOP was opened! New services directed to tattoo fans who wish to get theirs. A new full-time project to follow the Ainulindalë Quenyanna legacy now covering Eärendillinwë (thanks to Jonathan Britton)…

Wow, man….if you only knew what is coming this 7th year! But I cannot spoil the surprises. You’ll have to sit down and enjoy at the right time what’s in store for you. Stay tuned here where you know you get everything in Quenya…

1,000,000 elves!

1,000,033

Surprise! Minutes ago, we stroke the MILLION mark! Yes, 1 million elves! Although internet is or was full of “click here and win a prize as you’re the 1,000,000th visitor”, here in Quenya101, we’re gonna make it DIFFERENT! Elves are different and we gotta keep our reputation, right?

The 1,000,000th WILL WIN a prize and I myself personally will see to it! I have a few information about our lucky winner! Check the image below:

Who's the elf from Bavaria?

Who’s the elf from Bavaria?

If you are from Bavaria and you were clicking at the Maiar Gallery, please contact me through email so I can give you this special gift as you’re truly the 1,000,000th visitor!!!!!

The dispute was tough as I visualized second by second the race to be the 1,000,000th visitor! I thought Delaware or British Columbia would win. There was also strong California (as always) followed by several European countries like France, Poland, Belgium. In the last minute, Gauteng, South Africa popped up but the winner was….BAYERN, DEUTSCHLAND!

Nas……….Quenya!

SOooo, this is not a stupid April Fool’s prank. I hate those kind of things!

That might be the first thing you’re gonna think  if you’re not seeing the text below correctly. If all you get is a  weird code like: “5~CÁ 5#£ 1~V7E `C6 ” then you just need to get the font called Tengwar Annatar and you’ll do just fine! You’ll be able to enjoy this historical post! For the very first time, to change all the future for everyone who loves Quenya.

I present to you…….QUENYA, as it should be written! Just READ:

5~CÁ 5#£ 1~V7E `C6 5#£ `C5nE- iG5# `B t%5$Ì zF1;E6 aF2$`Cj iT5^t$ hÍE 1~VaT5$ 5$6 1T`V,F t#.DhÍE zF5#Ì5 5~C 1~VaT5#\ hÍY yE5%t# 1Rx#w#7EÎ 1Rx#6ˆ
5#£ zF4#j$`C- 5#£ `B 5#1 `Bj$´ 1YjaT`V2%j%° ›`C6 zF5#Ì2%j%°› t$65$6= `B 1T`V 1RaT`V5 1Rx#6 5#1|F,F- j~C `Vt#:= j~C eG4#j$= `V6 zF5#Ì `CrlYaE 1T`V7EÎ,F=====1Fx#7F,FÁ
 

What is relevant about his text? This is NOT an image! This is TEXT! That’s Quenya as it should be written, with its own alphabet. With this new Quenya101 feature, we give Quenya the status it deserves! Alongside other languages with different alphabets (Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Japanese and so on), now Quenya can be written using Tengwar. WRITTEN! Not just images pasted here and there!

W-r-i-t-t-e-n!

Or should I say….

                                                                                      1~VaG5#À
 

huh?

🙂 🙂 🙂

Well, for polite reasons, let’s share here the translation of the text as well as its Quenya equivalent written in that very ugly ugly alphabet we call Roman! Here it is:

Ná! Nas téra ar nas anwa. Sina i minyë quettar cendëal sinomë ya técinë ner tiessë mauya Quenyan ná técina: yo vanima tengwandarya Tengwar.

Nas quentalëa. Nas i nat ilyë Tolciendilli (ar Quenyandilli) merner, i tië tecien Tengwar natsessë. Lá emma, lá fintalë, er Quenya ampoica tieryassë…Tengwaressë!

And now English (at last!):

Yes! It’s right and it’s real. This is the first words you are reading here that were written the way Quenya should be written: with its beautiful alphabet Tengwar.

It’s historical. It’s the thing all lovers of Tolkien (and lovers of Quenya) desired, the way to write Tengwar in the Internet. No picture, no trick, only Quenya in its purest way…in Tengwar!

Almárë, our new Quenya star!

Aiya! Essenya Almárë ná ar nanyë vinya quén i tecë sís.

Nas ní.

Hello, my name is Almáre and I’m a new writer here. 😀 I’ve not done any posts thus far, but I’ve got a couple in the works, including a translation of Kepler’s Laws of Planetary Motion and one of Nightwish’s Ghost Love Score.

I began studying Quenya only last December, though I had been meaning to for a number of years – I think I downloaded the Ardalambion course all the way back in 2006 but never got around to it! Oh that I had! Still, over the last three months the study of Quenya has all but taken over my life. I love it! It started because I bought I print of Jenny Dolfen’s amazing painting of The Oath of Fëanor and I decided it would be cool to frame it with a Quenya translation of the oath (as found in Morgoth’s Ring) written in tengwar (I still haven’t done this, but I have the oath on my wall next to the painting!).

Nas ní. About me… let’s see.. I’m 23 years old and live in Tasmania, Australia… (that’s the little vaguely triangular island in the south east). I have a bachelors degree in physics and I am currently doing my honours in optical astronomy (nauvan meneldil!). I’m also an avid horse rider (nanyë roquen), study medieval European martial arts (polinyë turë macil) and do archery (ar quinga). I’m only fluent in English but I know a bit of French and Japanese.

I cannot remember when I first read The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings, but I first read The Silmarillion when I was twelve and that’s when my love affair with Arda began. Fëanáro was my favourite character then and that hasn’t changed (I used to use the screen name daughteroffeanor, judge that how you will). Hence, in-world I’d would be Noldo and would have been sworn to the Fëanorians, and post-Losgar probably Maitimo.

Nas ní.

I can be found on twitter @almarexx or on tumblr almare.tumblr.com, or via email almare@quenya101.com and if you’ve any questions (about Quenya or physics!), requests or want someone to proof read something you’ve written please don’t hesitate to ask!

Namárië meldonyar!

We’re back! The 3rd Year begins!

Entullelmë….one month later, here we are! On a Super Bowl day, we’re back! After a rough January (personally) I’m glad to announce Quenya101 is back!

Hooray, we're back!

Hooray, we’re back!

Sweet elven mead for our celebration!

Not only we’re back, but today is the anniversary of Quenya101. 2 years ago, I started this “thing” which I had no idea what would become! A day to celebrate, a day to remember and certainly a day to thank all the Tolkien fans who contributed for what Quenya101 is right now. (The beer is on me today, folks! Drink up) 😀

This year promises a lotta action around here! Tons of (good!!!) tattoos to display, future Quenya Masters to step up already being scouted, the conclusion of Ainulindalë Quenyanna (at last!), White Tree Awards III, The Hobbit 2nd movie to come….and an infinite array of new lessons and classes to share with all eager fans out there!

Goddamn, how I’m thrilled to be back! It’s like I’ve been mute for a whole month! As you may have noticed, Fast Line is also back since 02/01/13 and I’m catching up with all requests made through it during January. They are all considered (for the 101-hour delivery time) as being requested in 02/01/13 12:00AM ET. So, just relax and you’ll get what you asked for right in time, because you know a half-elven Quenya teacher is never late, nor is he early, he answers precisely when he means to.

Erutulco, núrolya!

Aiya, meldonyar!

I’m Erutulco Eruntano, and I have been honored with a position in Quenya101 Language Institute. Though I made some contributions before, now I’ve been given the chance of helping more actively in task of spreading the awesomeness of Quenya to every corner of Arda.

My encounter with Professor Tolkien was at the age of 12, through his most popular masterpiece “The Lord of the Rings”. Since then I started to delve deeper and deeper in his whole mythos. Now I count 22 years of life, and this passion has done nothing but increase. Needless to say, Quenya played a primary role in this process: in 2009 (age 19), I stumbled into Helge Fauskanger’s Quenya Course. I instantly began to study it, though very slowly due to life’s other obligations.

A little before finishing the Course, I found Erunno on Twitter, and he helped immensely in the task. And when, afterwards, he opened this site, I became an avid reader. Since then I’m up to perfecting knowledge, translating, and helping others to learn Quenya.

Finally, for the curious ones, here’s some information about me:

  • Age: 22 years old
  • Studies: currently studying Computer Engineering
  • Country: Uruguay
  • Languages: Spanish (mother-tongue), English, Latin (though a bit rusty lately), and Quenya.

My most notorious previous contributions to Quenya101 are these two: Tenwar Quenya Quick Guide & A Varda! Elentári!. Also I’ve been awarded with the title “I roquen taraso!” and a Quenya101 t-shirt for solving a challenge here.

Great, now you know me! But how do you contact me? I’m in a bunch of social networks, and on email. These are the most effective means of reaching me:

Twitter: @joaquingatica | Google+: link | Email: erutulco@quenya101.com

Do not hesitate to get in touch at any moment. I check this networks very frequently, and I’ll be pleased to help anyone anytime. We are here with that purpose. As the title states: Erutulco, your servant!

Enter Ondo Carniliono

Aiya ilyen!

My name’s Ondo Carniliono and I’m a new writer here in Quenya101. You may know me for some posts by our friend Erunno, like “All that is gold does not glitter”, “Bard’s song” and, I would say this is the most famous of them all, “Soft kitty”. 

I’ve started studying Quenya in October 2010, and on my first comments of it on Twitter I found the @Quenya101 guy. With his help, before the end of the year I was already translating parts of some lyrics into Quenya and I still remember my first translation was “When life leaves us blind, love keeps us kind” by Linkin Park (Song: The Messenger).

But… who am I anyway? I’m a 17 year old Gondorian, studying to be a physicist, I speak Portuguese, English, Spanish and, of course, Quenya and I live in Brazil. You can find me on twitter (@_Ondo) or you can email me (ondo@quenya101.com), so, if you need any help, got any comments or anything, hit me up there!

See you later guys! Namárië!
