Thanks to Jonathan Britton who enthusiastically sponsored the idea and was the father of it all, now we all Tolkiendilli have this grand poem in our beautiful tongue, Quenya.

The Awakening of the Elves

arda

How did life begin in Arda? Who were the Adam & Eve of the elves? How did the awakening happen in full detail? How many elves were there in the beginning of all?

Below, you’ll find a summary of a short text written by Tolkien called Cuivienyarna which constitutes part of Quendi & Eldar (an excellent text taken from War of the Jewels). Did curiosity take you by the hand? Don’t worry, let’s ride with it!

cuivienen_by_tin_sulwen-d5n1yobAccording to a legend of the Elves, the first Elves were awakened by Eru Ilúvatar long before the beginning of the First Age of the Sun, near the bay of Cuiviénen. The first Elf to awake was called Imin (“First”). Next to him lay Iminyë, who would become his wife. Near where Imin woke, awoke Tata (“Second”) and Tatië, and Enel (“Third”) and Enelyë.

Imin, Tata, and Enel and their wives joined up, and walked through the forests. They first came across six pairs of Elves, and Imin, as eldest, claimed them as his people, and woke them. After a short time Imin and his people, together with Tata and Enel, continued their journey. Next, they came across nine pairs of Elves, and Tata as second eldest, claimed them as his people. After a short time the now thirty-six Elves continued their journey. Then they found twelve pairs of Elves, and Enel, as third eldest, claimed them as his people.

awakening

For many days the now sixty Elves dwelt by the rivers, and they began to invent poetry and music.

Finally they set out again, but Imin thought to himself that since each time they had found more Elves and his folk was least in size, he would now choose last.

They came across eighteen pairs of Elves, who were watching the stars, and Tata and Enel waited for Imin to claim tumblr_inline_mjr1mxlxAu1qz4rgpthem for his people, but Imin told them he would wait, so Tata added them to his folk. They were tall and had dark hair, and they were the fathers of most of the Ñoldor of later times.

The ninety-six Elves now spoke with each other and invented many new words, but then they continued their journey. Next they found twenty-four pairs of Elves, who were singing without language, and again Imin was offered the choice, but refused. Therefore Enel chose them as his people, and from them came most of theLindar or singers of later times.

And the hundred and forty-four Elves now dwelt long together, until all had learned the same language, and they were glad. But then Imin said it was time to seek more companions for him, but most of the others were content and did not join him. So Imin and Iminyë and their twelve companions set out alone, and they searched long near Cuiviénen, but never found any more companions.

path_to_the_Elves_domicile_by_Nifrodel

And because all Elves had been found in groups of twelve, twelve became the number they counted with ever after, and 144 was for long their highest number, and in none of their later tongues was there therefore any common name for a greater number.

After the tale of the Awakening of the Elves the Companions of Imin or the Eldest Company (the later Vanyar) numbered fourteen, and they remained the smallest company. The Companions of Tata (half of whom became the Ñoldor) numbered fifty-six, and they remained the second-largest company. The Companions of Enel (the later Lindar or Teleri) were the largest company, numbering seventy-four.

Melkor was the first to learn of the Awakening. He soon began sending evil spirits among the Elves, who planted seeds of doubt against the Valar. It is also rumoured that some of the Elves were being captured by a Rider if they strayed too far, and the Elves later believed these were brought to Utumno and twisted into Orcs.

orome_elf

Oromë one day came across the Elves, and realized who they were. At first the Elves were suspicious of him, fearing he was the Rider who captured the Elves, and because of the lies of Melkor. Nevertheless, three lords of the Elves agreed to come with Oromë to Valinor. These were Ingwë of the Minyar (later Vanyar), Finwë of the Tatyar (later Ñoldor), and Elwë of the Lindar. In due time, Ingwë, Finwë and Elwë returned to Cuivienen, and told the Elves of the glory of Valinor, and there befell the Sundering of the Elves. All the Minyar and half of the Tatyar were persuaded, along with most of the Lindar, and followed Oromë into the west on the Great Journey. These have been known ever since by the name Eldar, or “Star-folk”, which Oromë gave to them in their own language. The remainder of the Tatyar and Lindar remained suspicious, or simply refused to depart from their own lands, and spread gradually throughout the wide lands of Middle-earth. They were after known by the name Avari, meaning ‘the Unwilling’, because they refused the summons, in Quenya, the language of the Eldar that eventually reached Valinor.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review

unnamed

Throbbing! The word is throbbing! That’s what I felt while watching the movie and that’s what it felt like after it was done! So painful! But before starting the review per se, I must warn you:

SPOILERS ARE COMING!

So, if you’re reading there, I suppose you already watched it or are pretty courageous to spoil such a good movie. The movie is throbbing! It’s action nonstop! Scene after scene, they change places, new characters are added (and they’re quite alright you know) and action is everywhere! It’s not for the faint-heart! I realize now Peter Jackson is surely writing his name in history. George Lucas has done it, Quentin Tarantino has done it, Steven Spielberg too…. This particular work of Jackson will stand out for ever and ever amen!

HIGHLIGHTS

The movie starts right in the middle of action where the other had left. Without much effort, Beorn is already introduced and even though his role is diminished and one may ask yourself “why was he in the movie, anyway?” one may remember the pity when Bombadil was left out of Lord of the Rings. Not the same mistake again with Beorn.

51b78cbdb0c64_4 beorn

Mirkwood scenes are fantastic and having multiple spiders in the scene was a bonus! That moment when Bilbo put on the Ring and immediately started to understand what the spiders were talking…..AWESOME! Ok….he took it out and he continued to understand them, but the concept was brilliant. Also, let’s not forget their dizziness inside the forest which presented to the audience the feeling of being drowned by the curse and the sickness felt in Mirkwood.

thdos-trailer02-062

I loved Thranduil character and his motifs. He showed some bad qualities in lots of scenes and their antagonizing, (Thranduil VS Oakenshield) brought sparkles to the movie. I really thought fight would start when they were pointing fingers on that scene. Legolas was very sharp in his character (very well portrayed) and as accurate with the bow as possible while Tauriel was the soft one. Kind, pretty and showing a good heart. Elves were fine, they played their part.

Barrels-Out-Of-Bond

The Barrel sequence was funny, quick, intense and even though you knew they would continue their venture, the tension was everywhere and by itself the sequence stood out (and you know…it’s just barrels down the river)

Necromancer was chilling!!!!!!!!! I know my exclamation marks and I wanna use them! His voice delivered and I froze every time he was on the screen. That black cloud speaking Black Speech ffffff it all and kicked ASS!

When Gandalf fought him (or should I say “tried to”) and the EYE came on, shhhhh we all knew Gandalf had become pumpkin pie by then! I loved the Eye of Sauron displayed that way and surely it’s gif-ready for every single Tumblr account out there!

Smaug delivered every inch of expectation I had. It was there! It was a REAL dragon the way Tolkien created! It was sly, it was evil, it was playing with its prey. Smaug had everything. I could not think of a better voice for Smaug, the tyrannical as well. Benedict remembered the good feelings Darth Vader’s voice bring to me. The treasure room scene was the crème de la crème and oh boy…….not for the faint-heart!

FAILS

Song, soundtrack, music and lyrics! Ok, lyrics may be forgiven a bit, but the song sucks big time! Aw c’mon, man! You may really think it’s a good song, you know all relaxing and stuff, good voice, vibe…but that’s NOT a song for that kind of movie!!!! Seriously? It takes away all the tension of the story portrayed in the 2 hours and 41 minutes and takes you to the beach beside a fire, roasting marshmallows…NO NO NO!

Gandalf-In-Dol-Guldur

Gandalf’s spell in Dol Guldur was one disappointment as well. IF that was Quenya, Gandalf needs to learn how to open the mouth so the vowels and consonants are well pronounced and enunciated! I didn’t like it! Bad taste in my mouth! Radagast on the first movie did much better! And that’s another fail! Where was Radagast? He was just a shadow of he could be. I know, I know, he’s very secondary, but but but;;;;; I just wanted more!

You’ll have less Dwarves than you could and should have as well. If you by any chance cannot remember their name by heart, you feel you don’t need to. They are not individually important, they are “Dwarves”. Thorin is the only one who is ONE character. But that’s just natural to expect with so many new characters and action!

Bard-The-Bowman

Bard was good but I didn’t welcome him quite well. I don’t know why. Actor was not bad, his role was fine, but…ahhh….I think it’s just me. Humans in Middle-Earth are kinda boring!

Conclusion,

I cannot wait for the next movie. How cruel they are! They shouldn’t do that to people. They rise the bar with every scene, you get in love with Middle-Earth and then….along came the credits! Astonishing desolation it was! Mesmerizing!
