“Can I touch your butt” in Elvish.

This is so useful

No, this is not “Can I touch your butt” in Elvish. This is “Can I touch your butt?” in English, transcribed using the letters of the Elvish alphabet. There is a difference. 
In Elvish, the letters of the alphabet correspond to sounds, not to words. The above text spells it out using one symbol to represent one letter of the original English, which is incorrect:
c-a-n  i  t-o-u-c-h  y-o-u-r  b-u-t-t
If you really want to spell out an English phrase using the Elvish alphabet, you would do so phonetically, which would basically equate to one symbol per phoneme (sound):
c-a-n  a-i  t-u-ch  y-o-r  b-u-t
If you actually wanted to write “Can I touch your butt?” in Elvish, one (very rough) translation would be:

Annog nin daf pladan tele ci?

Which, in Sindarin Elvish, roughly translates to, “Would you give me permission to touch your rear?”
Written in tengwar (the Elvish alphabet), it would look like this:

Sorry for the blurry quality.

damn, the lotr fandom doesnt fuck around

wow

not to mention LOOK HOW POLITE THIS WAS 
LIKE GOOD LORD 
OLDEST FANDOMS REALLY ARE POLITEST 

fuckin nerds

Anonymous asked:

ya they dont really explain divergence until the last book stay strong lol

You know, if Ms. Roth just cut out all of the filler crap, this wouldn’t have taken three books.

wordspan:

Or it could be to show that normal-ish things happen there too??

Except that this book would rather have scenes of Christina putting eyeliner on Tris than to actually tell us what a Divergent is and why it’s bad.

Or maybe it’s because Four purposefully did that to protect her because, I don’t know, he likes her.

I’d be more willing to accept this if the fact that this book wasn’t already packed with how much of a special snowflake Tris is.

Maybe she didn’t know Susan well because it’s considered selfish to talk about yourself and she never really felt comfortable with people so different to her????

Don’t you find it a bit odd that she lived across the street from Susan for 16 years and doesn’t know a thing about her?

Speaking as someone who has had an eyebrow ring, no they’re not, especially hoops. You can easily turn them. In fact, you’re supposed to turn them for the first few weeks, often.

Ah, well then. Thank you.
