Can't find any archaic synonym for 'tedious'.

Pervinca Took is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
GALADRIEL: She unravels the Grail deal.
2. She's archaically tedious, or is it me, initially? (And subjectively).
3. Norse god confuses her.
4. She's hard (or garbled) of hearing.
5. Hear me versify for her.
6. She bestrides a turbulent river?
7. Mariner's wife is distressed for her.

It's not quite as simple as a synonym of 'tedious.'

Try another clue first.

There's also Loki and Balder and Freyr, and a whole bunch more that google yielded, but none that easily lend themselves to a meaningful anagram. I'm not good with anagrams though.

And the Mariner's wife is either Elwing or Erendis, but anagramming them yields nothing either.

It's one of the less obvious ones.

Got it

If we rearrange Erendis, we get Feanor's mom.

CLUE FOR 2: Think of a character who could be described as tedious (whilst having other sterling characteristics as well).

You said nice characters are boring, and the only nice characters are Elves in Aman and Hobbits. Now, if it didn't say 'she', I'd answer Pippin. Another option could be Primula, but if the rumors are to be believed, she is not that nice. Lobelia is also tedious to an extent, but she is not that nice either.

No, I didn't say nice characters are boring.

There is a particular reason why this lady *could* be described as tedious, although she is very warm-hearted, kind, and well-intentioned.

'Me' is not a subject pronoun.

Not Rio. It's an English river. Well, English and Welsh.

Well done!

There are towns such as Ross-on-Wye and Hay-on-Wye that bestride the Wye River.

Just how many female names beginning with R are there? Very few. Start with the name and work backwards. I've already told you it's a lesser-known Norse god.
