Okay, this might seem like a silly question, but I didn't find a quick answer through Google, so here it goes. I was just sketching a little pastiche in the style of Bach in the key of B minor. I started with the melody and added a bassline and harmonies underneath it. Usually I just listen and decide intuitively or based on the harmony if the melody note has a "pull" down/upwards, but I was wondering if there are any "rules" when one should treat note as an accented or as a non-accented passing tone in a two-part counterpoint setting.
In the image below, I was thinking if it would be weird to treat the C# as an accented passing tone and harmonize it with a D in the bass instead of E, which would then resolve down to B and form a nice 6th between bass and melody.
