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.

"But when dark things come from the houseless hills, or creep from sunless woods, they fly from us. What roads would any dare to tread, what safety would there be in quiet lands, or in the homes of simple men at night, if the Dúnedain were asleep, or were all gone to the grave?"
FOTR: The Council of Elrond
“Here are some of my own kin from the far land where I dwelt,” said Aragorn and yet we know so little of his kin or his life among them. The men of the Grey Company did not spring fully formed from the grass. They had mothers, fathers, and kin, surely. Who crafted their gear, sheltered them when young, fed them, and wove their clothing?
The Rangers of the North were few in number and the Wilds over which they ranged was vast. When Aragorn commanded they turn from their other duties to protect the Shire, who must they then leave undefended? What price then did the Dúnedain of the North pay?
As seen through the eyes of a woman of the Lord of the Dúnedain’s house, this is an attempt at a tale of the Northlands in the years of Aragorn’s efforts to preserve the Free Peoples of Middle Earth.

- Part 2 of Shire Stories
31 Mar 2018
First half of SR 1390, as Bilbo and Frodo investigate strange happenings in the Shire, engage in politics with kin and others, and confront the damage done in Buckland. We get to visit the Free Fair, held over Lithe in Michel Delving, and see everything come to a head.
Lithe is an attempt to place the Shire more clearly within the context of Sauron's return and his growing influence on Middle-earth, as well as continue looking at the the socio-economic shifts affecting hobbit society as they cease being so isolated from the wider world.
A huge panoply of kin and characters tromp through the tale. Rated mature for subject matter and scenes. If you like light-hearted hobbit stories, this will not be your cup of tea.
- Part 6 of Shire Stories
(Post-LotR AU) One year after the War of the Ring, evil has returned to Mordor.
From The Shire to Gondor, the shadow grows - The Nine are abroad once more, and Melkor, Sauron's Master, has escaped from the Void. He wants to create a Ring, another Master Ring, to regain his immortality and power. But this time he needs something else: the blood of the Ringbearer who was responsible for Sauron's downfall. (Mainly focuses on Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin, though Gandalf, Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas have their roles too, so do Faramir and Eowyn. General adventure/drama; a bit of hurt/comfort and character exploration)
