I've got a Twitter specifically for writing fic @AcaciaCarter. Read about me writing fic that you will read! So meta! Seriously, though, if you're interested in my writing process, that's where you'll want to go.
Everyone has a favourite character. Even if you say you don't, you do. Mine is Neville.
In school, I WAS Neville. Never particularly good in classes, trying as hard as I can to not be noticed so I wouldn't be made fun of. I grew out of it, as Neville did, though I didn't have to be set on fire and kill a giant snake with a sword of mythic proportions to do it. Since I grew up with Harry Potter, I grew up alongside Neville - and always had a soft spot for him.
Not that you'd be able to tell by the way I treat him. Poor boy can't get a break.
Most of my fics are stand-alone and have no relation to one another. However, I do have one continuing storyline that is internally consistent: Long Way Down. This story arc begins with An Ode to Living, continues with The Breaking Point, goes on to include Polarity, grows darker in Tempus Vernum, and is concluded with Beyond the Pale (not yet posted). At least, that's the plan - we may see additional one-shots added to it as time goes on.
One of my favourite approaches to fic is to stick as closely to canon as possible, despite the very non-canon things that happen within them. I like my fics to be something that COULD have happened and don't contradict canon outright. You'll find that if you squint, you can often insert them into the canon HP timeline quite well. Most of them, anyway.
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.

This story is on a temporary hiatus until I finish some of my other WIPs. Thank you for coming to check it out, and I promise I'm not going to just let it end here!
Summary: Frank had hoped that his and Alice's first Christmas together would have just a little more hope and cheer than this.
Second Place Winner for the Great Hall-iday Challenge of 2011, for the prompt "Christmas at Ground Zero."
Summary: It's difficult to not be depressed when leaving a hospital, even if Neville's been doing it all his life. Tea with an old friend might well be a small comfort, especially since he's in a unique position to understand.
Note: due to a site glitch, I have reduced the rating of this story to 3rd-5th years. This is still a 6th-7th years-rated fic. Read at your own discretion.
Summary: There is something about the exhilaration of being alive after staring death in the face that makes one burn to celebrate that defiance. Nothing changes when Neville has something to get off his chest.
