    Gum Wrappers

    Gum Wrappers by Imari

    Summary: Neville knew something was not quite right with him. Other wizards his age awaited racing brooms. He awaited his mother’s gum wrappers. One-shot, 4,124 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Written for the Scrivenshaft Challenge at the Unknowable Room, this fic is a masterpiece of character depiction. Imari says that she’s trying to bring Neville into a new light, and it’s entirely successful — this is clumsy, awkward, canon!Neville, but in a situation that brings out the best in him. Only one of the haikus in this piece was given by the prompt and it astounds me every time I read it (because it’s well worth rereading) that the writers beautiful style allows the poetry and the prose almost to meld. Heart-wrenching and soul-nourishing.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s Neville and Alice, and if you don’t care, you don’t care. Also, it does occasionally stray into being just a little too ponderous, but not often.
