Tengwar Burger

Do you remember it? Do you recall? Well, it’s been such a long time since I published a new and exclusive Q101 Tengwar font!!! And here it is, the 4th one coming right out of the oven. It’s yummy, it’s fresh, it got extra special sauce and you can order with or without pickles and onions….YaaY! This Tengwar Burger:

burger-king-whopper-with-cheese-lxz

Tengwar Burger is chubby and designed to be so. No room for diet talk, boring side salad as main course….yikes! The font is healthy and sound, rounded and full of carbs, fat and all that juicy stuff and grandmas and grandpas would want us to have to grow strong and wide!

Since immemorial times (in fact, I can remember it…it was 2011) we have been sponsored by Lembas King and this font celebrates that fat enriching partnership too.

In order you get all the flavor coming with this brand new font inspired in Coimaso Aran logo, check the Quenya pangram below:

You can taste that fresh font right away! Order it by clicking at the button below and you’ll receive one special exclusive Tengwar font to go!

But you know that’s not it! You can get all Quenya101 exclusive fonts (Tengwar Kornography, Tengwar Kids & Tengwar Bathory) and type in different styles in Tengwar never dreamt before!

Also, there will be a big update in the Tengwar Fonts Ultimate Guide coming soon. A whole new collection is bound to be added! Stay tuned for it! This is the only place where you can get the craziest and different Tengwar fonts of the whole…Arda! Everything here, only…

Q101 Shop 2

To celebrate the 2-year anniversary of Q101 Shop, here’s the update new design of Q101 Shop! Following the new Q101 logo, this new design brings an edgy look with a strong contrast between a black background and some layers of the White Tree of Gondor. Honestly, how I love trees! This elvish tree simply rocks! …(my personal opinion).

Click on the images below and check closely how gorgeous they all look!

Wedding

love-header

Ranísil ar Erunno

A quick but very important announcement.

Today is my wedding day. I’m gonna be off for some days. Therefore, EVERY SINGLE service from Q101 is halted until December, 10th, 2017. I’m sorry about that. After the specified date, I’ll be back to work and answer all your requests within 101 hours (or even 360 minutes!)

Later, I’ll update this post with a few nice pics, you know… for the curious ones. I am one, I know how it feels sometimes.

It’s time, it’s TIME!

Time logo

Time what is time! An abstract notion that entangles us in a way there is no escape to the inevitability of the passing time in this physical world! Wow……how philosophical!

Lúmë

But this post is not about philosophy! It’s just an enhancement in the organization of My Special Day in the Elvish Calendar page.

 

Now you got section where all dates converted so far are separated by timelines! So easy, so well organized! Quenya101 primes for that and is always trying to make things better. Take a look, request your special date…it’s all about TIME!

Exit Ondo Carniliono

Sadly, after watching the whole video about a Quenya lecture given in 2015 by Ondo Carniliono (former contributor of Quenya101) where he meant that Quenya101 site was HIS and something HE created with some friends of his (those were his exact words in Portuguese), I resigned his internal access to everything connected to Quenya101 and would like to clarify that he is no longer attached to anything related to Quenya101, Q101, and his former email as a representative of the site (ondo@quenya101.com) is no longer active as well.

I thank him for everything he officially contributed from 2012-2015 (and even before when he was my pupil and learnt everything he could from me). He was a very good pupil I had and I’m sure as the video well shows, he is and has become a good Quenya Master.

Namárië ar hantanyel.

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…

NEW Tolkien book in 2017!

beren_and_luthien-296x447A compilation of Tolkien’s tales of Beren and Lúthien will be published next year, HarperCollins has announced.

Edited by Christopher Tolkien and illustrated by Alan Lee, Beren and Lúthien will bring together material scattered throughout the 12-volume History of Middle-earth series.

The earliest version of the tale of Beren and Lúthien was written in 1917, when Beren was an Elf not a Man and the equivalent of Sauron was a large evil cat.

The story underwent considerable revision throughout Tolkien’s life, and was reworked in both prose and poetry. The new book will demonstrate this evolution.

Beren and Lúthien will be published 100 years since Tolkien’s wife Edith danced for him in a small woodland glade filled with hemlocks in East Yorkshire, an event he later acknowledged was the inspiration for the meeting of the immortal Lúthien Tinúviel and the mortal Beren in the glades beside Esgalduin.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s Beren and Lúthien will be published on 4 May 2017.
