Bio:

Ignoble Bard has written in the Tolkien fandom for well over a decade (his origins are lost in the mists of time with many now-defunct websites including Yahoo Groups slash archives). Many of his stories appear on Archive of Our Own (IgnobleBard), the SWG (IgnobleBard), and Faerie: Tolkien Fanfiction (IgnobleBard). He has been one of the most regular participants over the years in the Slashy Santa series of fic swaps. Links to stories nominated and placing in the Middle-earth Fanfiction Awards may be found at that site. He writes everything from comedy and crack to high romance and also writes original short stories.

The Beautiful Battlements of the Fortress on Himring Hill by oshun, IgnobleBard

Rated: Teens | [Reviews - 4]
Summary:

Written at the request of Moetushie-–in the form of a comment fic on her LJ. Not much of a plot, simply Fingon and Maedhros sitting in a room at the top of Himring Hill Castle K-I-S-S-I-N-G. With a Beta read by Ignoble Bard and with some serious help from him in closing it--on the co-writing credit: he wrote the last sentence; I edited it lightly. (Without him, I probably couldn't write at all, too fraught with self doubt.)
