If you’re very astute you may have noticed something that’s on the bottom of (nearly) every post I make. It’s sort of my equivalent of a ‘Peace out’. Typically it looks something like this: Long days and pleasant nights from the Tale-Weaver. But sometimes it looks like this: Namarië from the Tale-Weaver. And occasionally it’s a blessing. Being a bookworm, I thought it would be cool to end my posts with a literary farewell. It sounded quite fine on paper, but then it occurred to me that I could only think of two. Some four weeks and a few Google searches later, I can still only think of two (so I sort of cheated with the blessing).
So here’s the deal: If you comment on this post with other suggestions and I like (i.e. use) your suggestions, you get a prize. I’m not sure what the prize will be yet. It may be something yummy to eat, it may be a story written just for you. Or it may be virtual jelly beans. But it will be cool (Just ask abeautifulordinary, who won my National Pi Day contest).
Oh and by the way, in case you were wondering, ‘long days and pleasant nights’ is the standard Mid-World greeting in Stephen King’s dark fantasy epic The Dark Tower, and ‘namarië’ is used in The Lord of the Rings and is Elvish for good-bye.
