!!!~~~****Elvish Phrases****~~~!!!

These are mostly from the Grey Company, whom we love so much with ever such love and tears in our eyes. Secondly, we love Elessa Yattannia and the Bloomin'Fanfics Yahoo Group who sent me the link to that site! Also, we love a little bit, because I collected a teeeeeeny weeeeeny little bit of this stuff from the fanfictions there.

^.~ I don't deserve one bit of credit! wheeeeee!
