"Nai yaryuvalyë estë sambassë mandosto, melmenya. Namárië."
Translation: May you find peace in death, my love. Farewell.

Short. And. Sweet. If I try figuring out any more Elvish, brain matter will start oozing out my ears. x_x

I was listening to the Gladiator soundtrack, particularly "Earth", while drawing this page. ;) I did get a little weepy. :XD: It's the music! Tug, tug, tugging at those heartstrings. *sniffle*

EDIT: Great, I just found a Quenya phrasebook online that had what I wanted to say. I could've just copied and pasted. -_- Well, at least i know the sentence is right.

Gladiator's soundtrack does that to me well I do that thing where Maximus imagines himself returning home, to his family, to his wife, to his son.
Lalakahn Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Have you ever seen the Daft Punk's video "Voyager"? (it's from the anime movie "Interstella 5555" I cried a lot once, and this is... just like it.

Ah, Queyna... The REAL Elvish, or at real as any fictional language can possibly be. =P
Kethelia Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
You even did her crying on the correct side! Its shown that crying from the left side is from pain or a painfuk memory and on the right side is happiness. This scene makes me so sad but theres so much emotion in it!
rooster82 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010   Digital Artist
Oh really? That's interesting. I had no idea. :)
Kethelia Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I figured you'd find it interesting :D
maybesca Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2010  Student Filmographer
This page is absolutely gorgeous. I had to stop reading just to comment on it. The layout is perfect. I love the way you integrated baby Tamlen and baby Nara into the page, and the ghostly Tamlen is heart-wrenchingly well done.
Keep up the amazing work! :)
arysani Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2010

Tell me or I shall join dear Tam. WHERE DID YOU GET THE CREATOR CURSED ELVISH!? Sorry, but I MUST KNOW. If you don't, Lyna Mahariel (My elfie) will send her wolf, Nara, her bear, Bor'Assan, Her dog Abelas, and her spider Assan to MURDER YOU even if she died in my DA:O game, then I shall tell my own dogs to maul me... by the way, go to and look up Lyna-Mahariel. THAT'S ME.
