Quenya:

Ilya ya malta ná lá mirilya,
Lá ilyë i ranyar vanwë nar;
I enwinië ya tulca ná lá hesta,
Núrë sundar appainë i nixënen umir.

I astollon nárë eccoitaina nauva,
Cala i lumbëllon tuiuva;
Envinyanta nauva i maica ya rácina né,
i riëlóra nér ennauva aran.

(all which is gold does not glitter (more literally "glitters not"),
not all that stray are lost;
The old which is strong does not wither,
deep roots are not touched by the frost.

From the dusts a flame will be awoken,
a light from the shadows will spring;
renewed will be the blade which was broken,
the crownless man will again be king.)

If you want to request something, please send me a message, don’t ask in the comments as I’ll most likely miss it then.
And if possible, tell me the font you’d prefer to have, otherwise you’ll get my standard fonts, Tengwar Annatar Italic and Tengwar Parmaite.

Please be aware that Tengwar is just a script, not a language. If you want actual Elven words, ask for a Quenya (High-Elven) or Sindarin (Grey-Elven) translation (including Tengwar).

Btw, I expect a minimum of politeness from requesters. You know, say "hi" and maybe even "please" because you want me to help you and all that…. and it’s free, so being polite shouldn’t be too much to ask.

For all those that would like to give something in return for my free service:
I am in no desparate need of money, so if you’d like to repay this in a way, how about donating whatever you can spare to a charity of your choice (e.g. a homeless shelter or animal rescue in your area)? That way your gratitude goes to someone who really needs it.

NOTE: If you would rather not have your request published for everyone to see (and use), please say so, and I’ll do an upload for friends only (and add you as a friend, of course, so you can see it). Such images will be deleted (and stored offline) after a while, so make sure to save it on your computer then.
