Well, the name is derived from the Quenya composite nyérë, meaning grief or sorrow, with the Sindarin ending -iel as the typical feminine suffix . A heinous crime in this fandom to mix and match your languages, I know, but oh, bite me. It flows quite nicely off the tongue! :P
Originally Nyériel’s name was going to be of some importance, following Tolkien’s law of ‘name must reveal some heavy-handed character trait’ but I feel now that I’ve rather deviated from that plotline, so I doubt it will come into play much. For now, just enjoy her as she is!
Open Wounds - Ch. 8: Seregon
“Have you ever given thought to how it is that Turko knows so much about anatomy? Or Nyériel, or me, or any of the other healers of the Eldar?
Have you ever wondered where all this information comes from?”
In which Curufin and Fingon have an important conversation with some rather dire implications.
Vague warning for graphic-ish imagery, but otherwise pretty SFW.
do u ever have a thought that’s so fuckin inappropriate that u feel like dumping a bucket of water on urself like. calm down, self. tone it down. think about jesus
