And with that, we finish our beloved project. Now, all Tolkien fans have the whole Ainulindalë meticulously translated into the mother tongue of the Elves of Valinor.

The Star-Spangled Banner (I Netyaina Ambal Elena)

I’m on vacation but I couldn’t let the day pass unnoticed here. It’s Fireworks Day, no, I mean Independence Day and we should celebrate it properly here in Quenya101!

So, to mark the occasion, here comes the National Anthem of Onórë Américo in Quenya, as we elves of Valinor should actually sing:

Middle Earth Ready

The_Star-Spangled_Banner_-_Project_Gutenberg_eText_21566

O say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Star Spangled Banner

 

A á quetë ma polil cenë cálessë amaurëava,

Ya alassëavë laitanelmë telda ilcië tindómesseva,

Yava hoë tier ar calimë eleni ter raxinqua mahtië,

Or i artar tirnelmë, ner ta huorinquavë hlapiessë?

Ar i carnë nár tintinainë pilindiva, i rúvinë ruiver vilyassë,

Tananer tancavë ter i lómë ya ambalelma né er tassë;

A á quetë ma netyaina ambal elena er hlapu,

Or i nórë lérava ar i már huorinquava?

That’s all folks! This bonus post comes to its end and off I go to my vacation! See you in August!

Quendi & Eldar

Do you know those awkward moments when you made an inappropriate remark about someone’s cultural/ethnic/race without even realizing it? It may range from a simple “calling-someone-chinese-when-one’s-actually-japanese” to using the n-word (and you know you shouldn’t but it just pop out).

Well, let’s have a simple etiquette class here so we don’t commit those embarrassing mistakes with elves! They are not all the same people. Just because you saw someone with a bow and pointy ears(?), don’t point the finger calling names without giving some thought to what you say!  That’s rude!

Taken from p.372-5 of The History of Middle-Earth Vol. XI The War of the Jewels, here’s what you need to know:

Quenya

Quendi = Elves of any kind, including the Avari (the ones who refused to take part on the Great March from Cuiviénen to Valinor. Singular less frequently used =  Quendë. This term became popular and useful when the elves met other races such as Men, Dwarves, Orcs, etc. It simply distinguished neutrally between Elvish people and non-Elvish people. Not used at all in Valinor where they called themselves Eldar and not Quendi.

Calaquendi = Elves who desired the light of Aman and took part on the Great March reaching its final destination. It was coined before the Separation and evidently by the party favorable to Oromë. In Valinor, it was used strictly to the Elves who actually lived or had lived in Aman (not only desiring it). In Beleriand, Calaquendi went out of use because it was offensive to the Sindar, still the Noldor used the word in books of lore.

Moriquendi = Elves who did not desire the light of Aman and wished a place with darkness and night (possibly to contemplate better the beauty of the stars). From the beginning the term had a tinge of scorn, implying they were inferior and more prone to follow Melkor and his Darkness. In Valinor, its meaning was simply the opposite of Calaquendi, namely elves who hadn’t lived in Aman. In Beleriand, Moriquendi was applied to all Elves except the Noldor and Sindar, basically the Avari.

Eldar = It literally means ‘Star-folk’ and in the beginning it encompassed all Elves. It had a close relation to Quendi, but later it did not include the Avari at all.

To be continued with Telerin and Sindarin terms and uses…

Bank of Valinor

Economic crisis? Banks with rotten credit all over the World? Real estate market falling like a spiral to the ground? NOT here, my friend…not in Valinor.

At Bank of Valinor, we take seriously the position we hold in helping serve as an engine of growth and success for millions of individuals, households, families, and businesses of every size and of every race*. 

*Bank of Valinor and its subsidiaries do not support financially any Orcish venture.

A financial health of a bank goes hand in hand with the kind of bank loan practiced there. Rigid banks profit less, but are safer and they tend to work properly within its “boundaries”. A bank too flexible can compromise its own financial health and bring down the whole system with it (i.e. this motherf… economic crisis those goddam.. banks put us in)

Having this in mind…can you imagine how I was blown up to the core when I received mail from the Bank of Valinor (which I was expecting at all) and when I opened it………..

My own custom Visa Platinum Valinor!!!!!!

And I mean it! Now you may be wondering….WHAT? Is this some kind of joke? Is that real? What’s that? I can’t even see it!

It`s as real as my fingers holding it! Take a better look!

See???? I held back some info for security reason, of course…but look…my name, my own!!! And the beautiful (copyrighted) background of the elves in Cuiviénen!

Man…….I was in heaven when I saw that!!!!

If you wanna get yours, don’t be shy….elves usually don`t charge hidden fees! Dwarves do, not elves!

How can you get one? Visit any branch office of Bank of Valinor next to you and ask yours now!!!!*

*Availability dependent on credit report information & current income

I can`t wait to use it!
