Okay but in the movies if the swords from Gondolin (wielded by gandalf and thorin and even Bilbo’s sting) were forged in gondolin WHY IN THE MOVIES DO THEY HAVE CIRTH WRITING ON THEM??

I was at some con and they had replicas of the movie swords and I ranted to the…

Given that

1) Cirth was created to write Sindarin down

2) Gondolin had many Sindarin elves

3) Orcrist and Glamdring are *Sindarin Names*

4) Even Turgon went by a Sindarin name (Turgon is a Sindarin name)

5) The use of Quenya was banned in Beleriand by Thingol

6) Tengwar could be used to write Sindarin but only with changes and clumsily.

It’s not unreasonable for the swords to be labelled in Sindarin using the Cirth. 

  • 1963: She loves you, yeah yeah yeah.
  • 1964: She's in love with me, and I feel fine.
  • 1965: She's got a ticket to ride, and she don't care.
  • 1966: She said, I know what it's like to be dead.
  • 1967: She's leaving home after living alone for so many years.
  • 1968: She's well acquainted with the touch of a velvet hand, like a lizard on a window pane...
  • 1969: She came in through the bathroom window, protected by her silver spoon...
  • 1970: She is standing, right in front of me. Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Discworld

I really need to read/watch the Discworld stuff.

It’s sorta interesting he mentions Duty, though I guess on some level you figure DEATH would be compelled by his existence to perform Duties, rather than it be a humanlike conscious decision

Reaper Man is about how Death doesn’t *have* to do his job, though if he doesn’t do it, the universe will try to find something else to do his job and his replacement is likely to be much worse.  Death does his job out of his own choice, though the likely consequences of choosing not to do influence it.

Círdan and Gil-galad (I imagine Gil-galad is a young adult at this point) abandon work on the fine new warship to go fishing.

"The next trump depicted a smiling woman in a laboratory. She had brown eyes, light skin, a cheerful countenance, and her brown hair was tied back in a style reminiscent of an onion, tied with a ribbon. She wore a yellow gown with lace at the neck and wrists, and over that a labcoat. A table of the elements and a university diploma hung on the wall behind her as she poured a yellow liquid from a test tube into a flask filled with green fluid. From the interaction of the two chemicals, smoke wafted upwards, transforming itself into a spectral yellow rose. She was Wakaba, the youngest of my siblings, and quite skilled at the sorcerous arts.”
