MARCH IS /TALE OF YEARS/ MONTH
Resource volunteers are pleased to announce that March is /Tale of
Years/ month! Each day, many of the events that occurred on that day
in the /Tale of Years/ will be featured on the HASA Welcome Page. Be
sure to stop by and see what events from the Research Library are
highlighted each day!
There are no members asking for birthday drabbles for March. If you
are a March baby, go and request your drabble!
DRABBLE SUGGESTION: Jay of Lasgalen suggested:
It's not my birthday, but today (March 2nd) is Mother's Day here in
the UK. How about drabbles with any mother and child of your choice?
This Week's Focus:
X takes the Ring - AU challenge Closes March 25, 2008
This challenge states: I have seen a few stories over the years where
for instance Galadriel takes the Ring when Frodo offers it to her.
But what would happen if others were to take it, for any reason, good
or evil? Aragorn? Boromir, Gandalf, or Pippin perhaps? Or Sam
abandons Frodo at Cirith Ungol and goes on alone to try to destroy
It wouldn't have to be a member of the Fellowship; maybe Barliman
Butterbur finds a golden ring in the room the Hobbits used
loses it on one of his walking trips in the Shire
These could be anything, serious, funny, dark; from drabbles to multi-
chapter AUs, and anything in between.
Entries for this challenge include:
Answering the Call by docmon
A Lesser Treason by Jay of Lasgalen
Dark Elf by Jay of Lasgalen
Old Man Willow by Nath
If you don't have a story written yet, you can enter the challenge
with a placeholder and submit your story when it is ready.
If you're brave enough
venture into the Nuzgul hutch:
Or, if none of those little buggers nip at your heel, it's not too
late to adopt an Oliphaunt. Just because its challenge is closed,
doesn't mean it doesn't need a little love.
Hugs and Cookies,
