You were invited here, whoever you are, to write one or more things which you admire about Nienna.

She is the one Valar, besides Mandos, whose only goal is to be as involved as possible with the lives of Fëa...one not removed from the problems, and yet one not causing any.

She stands alone, and souls are only drawn to her when they have nothing left. Elves possessing gifts who are interested in craft seek to learn from Aüle...but only for a time. At the end of their lives the work of their hands will be possessed by another, until they are swallowed up by the very earth they were taken from. There is no reason to hunt and catch food for a body which you do not have, and stealth is of no concern under the eyes of Mandos...who sees all the dead. Orome's duty, which are these things, are only taught to Fea in life. After death they care not, but are almost unwillingly drawn to Niënna.

She closes one epoch and opens another. Grief in death turns to wisdom for the next life, when the sons and daughters of Illüvatar will sing a new song.
