Dalish Marriage Vows

I’m still writing a post detailing my personal headcanons on what Dalish Weddings and Elvhenan weddings would be like. In the meantime, I wrote out some Dalish Marriage Vows, which I based heavily upon some traditional irish marriage blessings. 

Women’s Vows:

Ara lethal'lin, lasan ara'lan sul saota
Lasan ara'sal, sule ha'lam'sal'shiral

Telas ema em, ar giran ara'lan
Y la'var nuvenir, sul'eman emma asahn sul'ema
Telas raja em, ame lan'revas
Y jusul'anan na i'viren isalas
I thai juem on'el rodhe, garal o emma da'lav

Ara dir'vhen'an

Ma juveremas sael'prear or emma dil
Sael davathe or emma hyn
Sasha mar melin julahnan fra nydha
Sasha mar inan juithan fra dhea
Juame mar shalasha, la ane emma
Telam'aven judirtha or em'an
Var vas druast i'em'an, i alinen tel'juhartha ebalasha
Juleanathan i myathan na ove min'sal'shiral, i su uth'then'era

Man’s Vows:

Ara lethal'lan, lasan ara'len sul saota
Lasan ara'sal, sule ha'lam'sal'shiral

Telas ema em, ar giran ara'len
Y la'var nuvenir, sul'eman emma asahn sul'ema
Telas raja em, ame len'revas
Y jusul'anan na i'viren isalas
I thai juem on'el rodhe, garal o emma da'lav

Ara dir'vhen'an

Ma juveremas sael'prear or emma dil
Sael davathe or emma hyn
Sasha mar melin julahnan fra nydha
Sasha mar inan juithan fra dhea
Juame mar shalasha, la ane emma
Telam'aven judirtha or em'an
Var vas druast i'em'an, i alinen tel'juhartha ebalasha
Juleanathan i myathan na ove min'sal'shiral, i su uth'then'era

Vows Without Gender:

Ara lethal'len, lasan ara'lin sul saota
Lasan ara'sal, sule ha'lam'sal'shiral

Telas ema em, ar giran ara'lin
Y la'var nuvenir, sul'eman emma asahn sul'ema
Telas raja em, ame lin'revas
Y jusul'anan na i'viren isalas
I thai juem on'el rodhe, garal o emma da'lav

Ara dir'vhen'an

Ma juveremas sael'prear or emma dil
Sael davathe or emma hyn
Sasha mar melin julahnan fra nydha
Sasha mar inan juithan fra dhea
Juame mar shalasha, la ane emma
Telam'aven judirtha or em'an
Var vas druast i'em'an, i alinen tel'juhartha ebalasha
Juleanathan i myathan na ove min'sal'shiral, i su uth'then'era

As you can see, the only thing that changed between bride and groom, is the gendered pronouns of lan, len and lin. 

The Translation

My clan mate, I give you myself to make one from two
I give you my soul, until the end of life’s journey

You cannot have me, I own myself
But while we wish, I give what is mine to give
You cannot command me, I am a free person
But I shall serve you in the ways you need
And the fruit shall taste sweet, coming from my hand

My promise

You shall have the first cut of my meat
The first sip of my wine
Only your name shall I cry during the night
Only your eyes shall I see in the morning
I shall be your armor, as you are mine
No bad words shall be spoken of us
Our bond is sacred with us, and others shall not hear my grief
I shall worship and praise you through this life, and into uth'then'era

dragon raja au where eremes is a soldier in the bysus army stationed along the southern border and runs away with cathselprime’s egg after finding a plot to sell it to the enemy

which would make daisy an ice dragon technically but i mean. the fandom is literally me and a shoelace i don’t think anyone will raise objections

but yes the dragons in d/r take on the shape of humans when convenient //

Do you have a list of your fav feel good Malayalam movies? ☺️

Hi! I just reblogged my feel good rec list for you :) Also check out all recs that the people in @ideallaedi‘s comfort movies tag have posted (a mix of Malayalam/Tamil/Telugu). But for the people that don’t need subtitles, I’ll also include some of my ~personal~ feel good Malayalam movies that people may or may not have heard of/may think is weird (the older stuff); 

  • istham- a son tries to set his aged father up with a long lost love. lots of sweet, simple cuteness.
  • harikrishnans- mammootty and mohanlal in the most hilarous bromance disguised as a detective film. also *ing juhi chawla as ‘third wheel’.
  • kilukkam- an ootty guide thinks he’s lucked out when he meets a rich tourist girl who turns out to be crazy. or so it seems. classic mohanlal-priyan feel-goodness with revathy the queen.
  • mr.butler- a chef woes all the ladies with his amazing cooking skills and innocence. dileep at his comedic best. 
  • kalikkalam- mammootty as the robin-hood thief who is a master of disguise. dhoom 2 can go home.
  • ee parakkum thalika- a bus owner and his friend live in a broken down bus and their world is changed completely when a girl crosses paths with them. absolutely hilarious (except for the gross dark skin/fair skin transformation)
  • kilukkampetty- a guy falls in love with an architect but has to impress her daughter first, leading him to become the ‘nanny’. jayaram and baby shalini!!!
  • oru cbi diary kurippu- the entire series actually- yes a man solving gruesome murders is a feel good movie for me. only when that man is mammootty. don’t judge. 
  • chandralekha- mohanlal faking being married to a lady he helps get to the hospital while she is temporarily paralysed. again, mohanlal-priyan magic.
  • meleparambil aanveedu- shobana sways hearts as the housekeeper in a house where all the men are forbidden to marry.
  • akasha kottiyile sultan- sreenivasan needs money, has a huge house to which he is merely the caretaker, and much to his disdain, is forced to entertain a slew of wacky renters.
  • summer in bethleham- a bunch of relatives (including a bunch of kick-arse cousins headed by manju warrier) come to see jayaram’s estate that is actually owned by his friend suresh gopi. a little sad towards the end, but still great fun.
  • ramji rao speaking- 3 desperate friends decide to fake a kidnapping for money. the original of hera pheri or whatever that bakwas was.
  • aanaval motharam- sreenivasan is a scaredy-cat cop who decides to screw it and do whatever he wants when he thinks he’s about to die. 
  • godfather- a boy and a girl from feuding families fake fall in love then real fall in love and it doesn’t turn out like romeo-juliet *thank god*. an absolute classic.
  • cid moosa- dileep the aspiring inspector tries to find the culprit behind an attempted murder with his trusted dog and plenty of comic charm.
  • sandesham-  a politically divided family. again, a satirical classic- what great writing
  • junior mandrake- a non-religious family acquire a cursed sculpture which they toss back and forth between their rivals to rid of it. 
  • pattanapravesham- the second part of nadodikattu- twice as many smugglers, yet dasan and vijayan are still as dorky as they were before.
  • chintavishtayya shyamila- a family drama about a whiny, escapist husband and his all too forgiving wife. 
  • nakshatratharatthu- a young couple of orphans decide to adopt parents. shalini and chackochan have the most amazing chemistry- them as a married couple is everything.
  • cid unnikrishnan ba.bEd- another hilarious cid film, except this time there’s three of them competing for the most stupid final position in a detective firm.
  • kilukil pambaram- jayaram and jagathy are care-takers to a palace that has a bit of a history. back when jayaram was in peak entertainer form.
  • vadakkunokiyanthram- sreenivasan’s inferiority complex after getting married to his beautiful wife gets pretty terrible, but in a very entertaining way.
  • chattambinaadu *and pokkiri raja- honestly i am trash*- mammootty as the kannada speaking rowdy that goes back to a town in kerala filled with rowdies and unfinished business. and pokkiri raja is long lost brothers or some thing like that. they’re both masala movie fun if you leave logic behind.
  • puthukotiyile puthumanavalan- two poor singer/story-tellers follow a very pretty rich girl to her home town where they are pulled back and forth between two warring families.
  • swapna lokathe balabhaskaran- again, jayaram and annie- in which jayaram is a sleep walker that gets into all sorts of trouble while annie is the wife that has to deal with it all.
  • udhayapuram sulthan- dileep is the muslim son of a muslim father/hindu mother who finds himself pretending to be a hindu poojari/singer in his orthodox hindu grandfather’s home. much less complicated than i made it seem.
  • thalayanamanthram- urvashi manages to persuade he husband sreenivasan to buy a bunch of things that he technically can’t afford. for all the laughs it’s a little anti-woman unfortunately. 
  • kakkakuyil- mukesh and mohanlal masquerade as the body and voice (respectively) of the grandson of an elderly deaf/blind pair. mohanlal-priyan yet again (before they completely lost it)
  • rajamanikyum- mammootty is a highly successful, yet uneducated cattle dealer who returns to his home town to reunite his feuding step-siblings. anwar rasheed in all his family love goodness!
  • hello my dear wrong number- just the first half actually :P mohanlal is accused of a murder he didn’t commit and has to find the real culprits. that era of slapstick comedy can make anyone laugh.
  • mookkilla raajyathu- four nutcases escape their mental hospital and reek some thoroughly enjoyable havoc in town.
  • golanthara vartha- charliechiyan’s more family-orientated, less nomadic baap. lol. shobana and mammootty being all ideal couple like ^__^  
  • sanmanassullavarkku samadhanam- middle class man mohanlal has 99 problems, and the tenants that refuse to vacate his house so he can sell it is definitely 1 of them.

I basically just searched ‘Malayalam movie’ on youtube and added my favs to this list- all the titles are youtube links. No subtitles unfortunately. But this is for my Malayali brethren (and Tamil- if you can understand the language sufficiently without subs), because the world is a dark place and we all need some happy time.

Atheva Lavellan x Cullen Rutherford | 2004 words | Fluff, Wedding | AO3 | art from celebrantsrapacity

She was nervous.

Well, that was an understatement. Atheva felt like running away from everything the longer she sat on her old bedroll. But… if she felt like this, how did he feel? Alone in a strange place with strangers surrounding him and threatening him if he even stepped the wrong way. It had all been a mistake. She had made a horrible mistake.

A soft “hello” caught her attention and made her turn to look to the entryway of her tent. “Tryla,” she sighed with a relieved smile. “Please tell me you’re here to tell me it’s okay if I run screaming.”

“Afraid not, Atheva. The ceremony’s starting,” the older elf said, thrusting her thumb outside. “Your shem is already waiting for you.” Atheva’s dread must have begun to show. “Don’t worry, da’assan, everything will be fine. You’ve got your mae with you, don’t you? And your father?”

She looked down at her dress and bit her lip. “I suppose,” she breathed, taking the white fabric between her fingers and giving it a slight rub. “Has anyone been hard on him? Because they should know that if they are I’ll-“

“He’s fine, da’len. He’s been respectful to everyone he’s met and has gained respect in return. Don’t doubt him. You’ve found yourself a fine man,” Tryla said with a smile as she helped Atheva to stand. “Now hurry, before he fears you did actually run.”

“He probably already does,” she said with a nervous smile as she lifted the skirt of her dress so she could walk out of the tent. Her hands were quickly smacked away and she looked at the other elf in confusion.

“It looks bad. Makes it obvious someone’s been wearing breeches.”
