Release Date: 13 Jan 08
The HASA weekly update for December 13-20. Every week I focus on what new content has been added to a section of HASA. This week focuses on resources, with info about birthday drabble requests, reviews, and an onlist challenge..
Calling all Reviewers!
There are currently twenty stories awaiting reviewers, with five more about to be released. If you've been a member of HASA for thirty days you're welcome to become a reviewer. Here are just a few of the summaries for stories currently available:
--- "As he leads Tuor to Gondolin, Voronwe learns of love, of fate, of fear... and most importantly, of hope. Contains mild slash, but is ultimately true to canon."
--- "Bad weather blues, past shadows and the hope of light; old traditions become new ones on a rainy night in Emyn Arnen."
--- "When 9-year-old Samwise Gamgee's older sisters develop a crush on a certain newcomer, guess whose help they enlist?"
To review these or any of the other many stories, log in to HASA and go to http://henneth-annun.net/members/review/index.cfm.
No members have requested birthday drabbles for this week. If you have a birthday in the upcoming week and would like a drabble, you can request one at http://henneth-annun.net/forums/messages.cfm?confId=0&forumId=482&messageId=51422.
The following drabbles have been written in the last week.

This week's focus:
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 here.
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.
What's new in Resources:
Celebrimbor forges the three Elven Rings of Power.
Minas Tirith (Gondor)
Minas Tirith (Beleriand)
Elven sheath for Anduril
Three Elven Rings of Power
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*
