I'm currently working as a singer/dancer on a cruise ship. I have no desire to be a writer, but I am an avid reader of almost everything! My degree is in English Literature and I'm a grammar tyrant, so feel free to message me if you need a beta-reader!
My primary interest in fanfiction is slash, but I'll read anything as long as its well read! Favourite pairings include Harry/Draco, Remus/Sirius, and Dumbledore/Grindelwald. If you have any recommendations, send them my way! Pet peeves include the misuse of hyphens and apostrophes and poor characterisation.
Oh, and I'm a Ravenclaw, both in personality and on Pottermore!
Summary: Having just been dumped by his girlfriend, Hugo Weasley is not in the mood for his cousin's party, even when James assures him that he'll soon snap up a 'wicked-looking witch'. And with Lily hell-bent on fixing him up with the boring Eliza Finch-Fletchley, the evening looks to be taking a sharp turn for the worse.
But on the other side of the room, one guest is watching him closely. Will Hugo be able to resist?
The Sexual situations are mild and the strong profanity is fleeting (but necessary) hence the rating.
This story was originally written for a Musical drabble exchange in the SBBC. The song that inspired me was 'Falling Slowly' by Glen Hansard. Thanks must go to Lia (Liandrin) for introducing me to the song, Jess (ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor) for beta'ing the original drabble, and Elene (CoolCatElly) for beta'ing the extended version.
Finally, thank you Natalie (hestiajones) for introducing me to the whole concept of Scugo.

Nomintated for a 2011 QSQ in the Best Same Sex Category. Thank you.
This was a lovely story that was written beautifully. Its so great that my vocabulary has been reduced to a single noise.
Author's Response: Thank you very much, it's always lovely to hear a squeee. Hmm, I notice from your profile that you enjoy reading slash. I have a Remus/Sirius called Monochrome, and a few others on this site featuring other pairings (Truth or Dare, Drowning Not Waving). I can also heartily recommend hestiajones who has written some amazing Scugo fics (Scorpius/Hugo, like this one) and ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor who writes amazing angsty ssp. (Oh, I have a Harry/Draco called The Grey Between as well). OOOPs, sorry for pimping so many of my stories. Thank you once again for the review ~Carole~
Summary: Neville is completely oblivious to what he's revealed, Harry doesn't know how this affects their friendship, and he's got nothing in the liquor cabinet except peach-flavoured swill.
This is AcaciaCarter of Hufflepuff, writing for the Great Hall Cotillion of 2012.
Summary: Behind the walls of Hogwarts, deep in the shadows, lurk the secrets of the Founders. Of one mind, at first, their legacy came close to crashing down when two locked horns.
With Helga Hufflepuff determined to disband the Houses and admit anyone, Salazar knows he has to keep the other two on side. But Godric is distracted ... and soon Salazar is, too.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling and I'm not as old as the Founders.
I am, however, Equinox Chick and this is my entry into the School of Mischief Challenge for the Great Hall.
Thank you Natatatatatatatattatatattatatat (hestiajones) for beta'ing this and to Karador (Karaley Dargen) for letting me moan when it collapsed on me.
Winner of the Best Chaptered SSP award in the 2012 QSQ's. Yippeeeee!
Wow. That was not how I expected the story to end! Or at least, not before they went down into the chamber. Very well-written story and the characters were fantastically created, particularly Salazar himself. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. This was quite a hard story to write as I don't usually write dark stories, so I very much appreciate your kind words. ~Carole~
