After a time, the Elves set out together again. Noticing the growing numbers of Elves with each new group of awakening Quendi they had discovered, Imin thought to himself to make a later choice since he had only his wife and the twelve with him. Soon they came upon a sweet-smelling firwood on a hill-side, where eighteen pairs of dark-haired Quendi were still sleeping. When a wind came and roused the Elf-men on the hill, they payed no heed to the awakened Elves who had found them, their gaze fixed on the stars above them. They eagerly awoke their spouses to look at the stars, crying out ''"[[elen|elen, elen!]]"''. Thinking to choose a later, larger group, Imin withheld his choice, and the new thirty-six Quendi went with Tata.

After devising new words together and celebrating on the hill-side, the ninety-six Elves set out until they came upon a dark twilight lake, with a high cliff on its east side and a waterfall coming down from the heights. Bathing in the lake were twenty-four Elf-men, their twenty-four spouses having been awoken. They had not devised any words for themselves, but they sang together amidst the rushing of the falls. Imin again withheld his choice, and these forty-eight went with Enel.

The legend concludes with the fates of each of the three groups of the Unbegotten. Imin and Iminyë with their twelve companions became the [[Minyar]], the mothers and fathers of the [[Vanyar]]. Tata and Tatië with their fifty-four companions became the [[Tatyar]], the mothers and fathers of the [[Noldor]]. Enel and Enelyë with their seventy-two companions became the [[Nelyar]], the mothers and fathers of the [[Teleri]]. All the Quendi in days after loved green things that grew, but above all they loved the light of the stars, though the Teleri above all other Quendi loved the water, and sang amidst it before they could speak.<ref name=Quendi/>{{rp|421-423}}
