Headcanon:
Nienna is alone because she loved an Ainu who decided not to enter into Eä with her at the beginning of time. She was the first Ainu to know sorrow, when she was separated from her beloved.
(Ulmo otoh is just aro.)

"So great was her sorrow, as the Music unfolded, that her song was turned to lamentation long before its end, and the sound of mourning was woven into the themes of the World before it began"
- the Valaquenta
I'm still not very good at Art in General and this is definitely not my best work but I felt like drawing Nienna, who is (so far) my favorite of the Valar. This was more of a celebration of how beautiful The Silmarillion is and the fact that I'm finally reading it. Hopefully someday when I'm better at art I can return and do her justice!

Sound of Sorrow
Nienna was born hungry for truth; the sister of certainty; Námo, he who sang of all that was real and known. Unsatisfied was she in the beginning when they were only two, and but a follower of the toils of her brother, who hearkened to the songs of others and put their melodies to death, preserving what was sung through repetition. For truth ran deeper yet than what they were able to achieve, and long it eluded her, until the coming of Irmo. Chimeric was he in thought and contrary to reason, dwelling in songs which Námo had not inscribed to being, claiming the rejected realities and refusing what laws and rules made them so. To their disagreement then hearkened Nienna, and what she heard she repeated all at once. Deep was the cut of the first sound of sorrow as she overlaid the song of desire with the reality told against it, but she cared not for the pain, for she had found her voice.

✭ The Valier [4/7] ✭ Nienna, Lady of Mercy
She is acquainted with grief, and mourns for every wound that Arda has suffered in the marring of Melkor. [...]  But she does not weep for herself; and those who hearken to her learn pity, and endurance in hope.

A while ago I made a mistake in a note on a fic about Ulmo-- I stated he was the only one without a spouse. That is of course not true; both Nienna and Melkor are alone as well. But I was thinking of the Valar in a fairly abstract way, so impartial record (Vairë)/ judgement (Namo), animal death (Oromë)/renewal of life (Vána) etc.
Anyway of course Nienna is the Vala of sorrow. And sorrow only enters the story because of Melkor. There would be no need for Nienna at all in the story without Melkor there to create things to mourn for, and there would probably be no way to continue despite Melkor's twisting without Nienna's help in processing the pain he causes the world at large. In that more abstract way they are a pair. :)

New Silmarillion one-shot: The First Good Death
Words: 1,840
Characters: Yavanna and Nienna
Warnings: none
Summary: This is a bittersweet moment between Yavanna and Nienna set in Middle-earth before the coming of elves or men. The Valar have not yet gone to war so Melkor is still in Utumno directing all sorts of mischief. Yavanna has not yet perceived the mortality of her creations. Nienna brings her the heartbreaking news, but not all deaths are evil.
You can read it here.
