Legolas Thranduilion

Hmm - if they can get Haldir up there he would be good for ballast - he is a very rugged elf...

You are cruel! (Though there will come a moment when they may have to consider throwing him overboard, LOL).

The funny thing is, I've seen Craig Parker in the theatre and he's really quite small!

Minas Tirith

I've been thinking about you this evening - I have been researching 'naughty elvish'...

It occurs to me that wood elves would have silvan words of their own for the relevant bits - so if I can't find a suitable Sindarin word I am using Manx - as Tolkein said the elvish languages were all celtic related!

I love the euphemism 'cudjal beg' but thought it might show it's gaelic roots too much, so have translated it back into Sindarin!!

The reason for this detailed research will be unveiled before Christmas...

I thought there would be a lot of tree metaphors...

cudjal beg

I can find the definition, but what do the words mean literally?

unveiled before Christmas...

Oooo! That sounds interesting! (Does it involve Faith?)

suitable job for a lady

Cudjal beg - little club. Club as in for hitting someone, rather than the WI or whatever!

I was thinking tree metaphors, but also weaponry metaphors - the elves have all been warriors for thousands of years. It pleases me that one of the Manx words translates as 'tool' as this is a eumphemism used in English too - but I cannot find a word in any of the Sindarin dictionaries for 'tool' - they are always more specific.

The story is going to be fluff and romantic sex. It is Rumil and Tindómë/Dawn, centring on the idea of elves going 'starlight bathing', and covers a period from the elves ride home from Minas Tirith in company with the Rohirrim up to and including "your first time should be under the leaves and the stars" - which Dawn quotes when back in Sunnydale.

I wondered if it was, in fact, 'cudgel', which seemed appropriate, but I thought 'beg' might mean 'big', LOL! I wonder what that says about the Manx national character?

It sounds like Rumil/Dawn might eventually turn into a series... Because there's little Haldirin to talk about as well.

Dawn go Home

Yes - it is exactly the same word as cudgel.

There are, in my mind, a lot of stories of Rumil and Dawn, right up to and past them accompanying Legolas when he goes West. Where, of course, there is the distinct possibility of meeting a re-bodied Haldir in time...
