Announcements for September 9-16


The following members have birthday this week. If you're in the drabbling mood, why not write them 100 words as a birthday card?

Linda Hoyland requested "Aragorn is my favourite character,especially as King. My other favourite characters are Arwen,Faramir and Eomer. I like drama or humour, but dislike smut and slash."

If you have a September birthday and haven't yet done so, you can request it at the Birthday Drabble Forum.


Thanks to generous HASA-ites, HASA is funded through the end of 2007. Thanks, guys!

There are still lots of ways to make HASA a better site, through the donation of your time. Review a story, either one already published or one of the several currently in the review pool. Enter or suggest a challenge. Challenges is currently looking for a volunteer to help out with the birthday drabbles thread. And you can always add to the resources knowledge base, or link to it where you see Tolkien canon being discussed. Speaking of....

This week's focus: RESOURCES.

The HASA Research Library is a very useful resource for writers as well as for online discussions on book canon. You can find entries on characters, settings, events, and items, containing cited quotes about the item you are trying to find more information on. This portion of the site is available to both members and non-members at

Would you like to get involved with Resources? If you like researching and want to help develop this section of HASA you can contact the Resources & Research Library through the contact form at the contact form..

What's new in Resources:

Timeline Events:
Theoden adopts Eomer and Eowyn and raises them in Edoras
Theoden reinstates Eomer as Marshal of the Mark

Character Biographies

Good luck researching your story! If you enjoy this section of the site please feel free to thank the researchers, listed at the bottom of every entry.

And always remember, grasshopper: the path of wisdom leads through proper citations. *grins*
