Henneth Annûn Story Archive
Welcome to the Henneth Annûn Story Archive Collection! HASA is open to new works of any genre or rating and with any combination of main characters within the JRRT fandom, except within the following categories: Lists, Mystery Science Theater (MST), and Real Person Stories (RPS). We do accept critical essays about JRRT's works and about JRRT oriented fan fiction.
The import of this archive to the AO3 was approved by the OTW Open Doors Committee on 21 January 2015, and imported in February 2015. The Henneth Annun Research Center, which includes short descriptions of Timeline Events, Characters, Places and Things, is still available at www.henneth-annun.net.
Due to the semi-automated process of the importing process there may be some glitches in tags, duplication, and chapter order which may take some time for authors or volunteers to clean up.
A note on tags specific to HASA: The program at the original hosting allowed for reader-supplied tags, as a way to recommend a story to other readers. Tags beginning with words such as "Canon- ", "Characters- ", "Plot- ", "Writing- ", etc., are examples of this type of tag.

How did Eomer, King of Rohan, meet his wife? This is a series of oneshots describing different scenarios, some long some short, some serious some less so. No connection with each other or any of my other stories.
Chapter 8: Joust

Two weeks in Buckland as Bilbo and Frodo visit during Yule and attend the Wintermark celebration.
Takes place in late-December, 1389, and early January 1390 SR, during the Yule season. Contains a great deal of speculative information about Shire social structure, politics, and economic activity since Bilbo returned from his adventures.
Bilbo and Frodo are main characters. Brandybuck, Took, Bolger, and Burrows relatives show up, and many original characters (OCs), including Dalin, a Dwarf. Mature themes in almost every chapter, descriptions of sexual activity and violence in several chapters. Only G or PG rated excerpts will be posted to AO3.
Not a cheerful feel-good holiday story in any way.
This story is originally published on my own site, Rómenna. New chapters will appear there first. Read On Merry Yule on Rómenna.

Ten days in Buckland as Bilbo tries to convince his relatives that Frodo belongs with him. Significant speculation about minor LOTR characters, and gap-filling on Shire culture, society, politics and economics.
NOTE: I do not write children's stories. I deal with mature topics in all of my works. Expect to find direct presentation of sexuality, politics, violence, economics, and other non-trivial topics.

Although set in the early Fourth Age, much of the story is based on events that took place (or could have easily taken place) earlier. So there is quite a bit of looking back to events in the Third Age and beyond. The story is concerned with men, mostly Dúnedain. It is not so much about Tolkien characters, as it is about Tolkien themes (of paradise lost, of the dwindling of a great race, of blood and destiny.)
It is the tale of a man who embarked on an unsought journey and went on to play a major part in the events that shaped the south of Gondor in the early Fourth Age. Along the way he would come to discover his heritage and his place among the Faithful, as well as a sacred vow and his bond with a legendary figure of the past.
