Oh man this is so awesome.
Hmmm, good question…. The tricky of this is that we really don’t have birth dates for the earliest generations of elves. And there aren’t any elves (aside from those named in the Cuivienyarna, which I’ll talk about below) that are confirmed to have awoken at Cuivienen (and therefore be the oldest elves possible.) So we really can’t know who the oldest living elf is. But, here are some likely candidates:
- Ingwe: The King of the Vanyar, Ingwe spent the first part of his life in Cuivienen, the birthplace of the elves. While it’s never specified by Tolkien whether he awoke at Cuivienen, or was born there, I think the latter is more likely. We know that Indis was his niece, and I think it’s extremely unlikely that elves awoke as siblings - the very definition of “sibling” sort of requires parents, right? Either way, he’s one of the very few named elves that we know actually lived in Cuivienen, and he’s still alive and well in Valinor.
- Olwe: Same as Ingwe, really. Olwe was the younger brother (again, suggesting that he was born, and didn’t awake) of Elwe, later known as Thingol. Unlike his brother, though, Olwe completes the journey to Valinor, and is still living there long after Thingol is killed in Doriath.
- Cirdan: All we know of Cirdan’s origin is that he was a relative of Olwe and Elwe, and that he served as a lord among the people of Elwe. It’s never specified whether he’s older or younger than Olwe. But, Cirdan is the oldest (named/known) elf in Middle Earth (so, basically, not counting Valinor.)
Now, there are a few elves who are known to have awoken at Cuivienen - the three first elves to awake, and their wives. However, these elves are only mentioned in the Cuivienyarna, which is said directly by Tolkien to be an elvish fairytale, so I’m not sure how literally it should be taken. Furthermore, since they’re never mentioned again, we have no way of knowing if they’re still alive or not.

Scenes not in the movie: Glorfindel
I really thought that someone was going to talk about this scene..but apparently no so.. I did^^
“How are we to go home?” he repeated, meaning King’s Landing, and Dragonstone, and all the realm they had lost.
Dany had only meant their rooms in Illyrio’s estate, no true home surely, though all they had, but her brother did not want to hear that. There was no home there for him. Even the big house with the red door had not been home for him.
the most accurate post ever
I’ve been sitting here for five minutes trying to figure out where the .gif starts
It’s like a fandom. It never starts, it just happens.
I have no idea what song this is. If some of you guys know what it’s called please message me so I can write it down.
This is the video I found it in.
