What I had not dreamed, it came true

…and I just have to say: Thank YOU!

One of Quenya101 Goals have become a reality yesterday. I wouldn’t think about that even in my crazy dreams, but now it is a reality!

Do you remember the trick?

In November, 2011, I acquired my own domain from WordPress and the site became known as simply quenya101.com. At that time, I have requested WordPress to be part of a program called WordAds. Yesterday, for my surprise, against all odds, for my disbelief, they sent me an email telling my site was approved to be included and from now on, Quenya101 Language Institute will be paid for the ads automatically included in the site! That’s HUGE! I know it’s not gonna be a fortune (of course), actually I’m expecting some cents on my Paypal account at the end of the month, but the MEANING of it…..wow…wow…that counts a lot!

Read the email and be joyful with me! (Beer is on me today!)

This site started as nothing! As something I felt like doing, but who’s gonna be so devotedly interested in Quenya like I am? I underestimated the power of internet and the devotion of Tolkien fans! The thing is growing and growing and now it came to this!

It may sound silly and corny, but that simple event made me extraordinarily happy!

I’m proud, I’m happy, I’m astonished and I’m thankful for what Quenya101 audience has accomplished! Yes, this achievement is yours! You did it!

Also….as I promised here, Quenya Masters have privileges and REWARDS too! When it comes to linguistic knowledge, I’m a giver! It will be a pleasure to me to share proportionally with Ondo & Erutulco, my faithful pals, all profits that Quenya101 is gonna receive from now on. It’s NOT gonna be much, you know…we’re still gonna need to study and work hard on the real world, Quenya won’t pay the bills… 😀 …..but maybe we can buy some candies out of it!

Anyway, do NOT forget that:

Quenya101 Language Institute is free. You will not be charged ANYTHING to have a name composed into Quenya, to have a sentence translated, to have help to learn the language. NO. Thou shalt not! My pleasure lies in giving knowledge, not hoarding gold in the process. I love to do it, and the passion is much more valuable than money!

Stay tuned….you know more surprises will come!

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!
