Hello. :) I'm E and I don't bite, promise! You may know me as -EHWIES from my entire time on fanfiction until June 2014--it was time for a radical change. ;) I'm a chemistry PhD student with bachelor's degrees in both chemistry and English, a strong Ravenclaw identity, and a closet penchant for writing--primarily for Harry Potter fanfiction because fudge the machine, but I also dabble in other fandoms as well as original poetry and prose. Updates here will be sparse, as my entire life is grad school and I'm in a very satisfying but very monogamous relationship with my job, but you'll still find me semi-regularly around my forum home, the RLt, and occasionally picking at Through A Glass Darkly (my baby and primary WIP), Bellatrix's Wedding (my in-progress assorted drabbles project), and the occasional one-shot.
To make my Favorite Stories list a little easier to navigate, I've deleted from it all the stories written by those whom have listed as Favorite Authors, since at least three-quarters of them were written by my Favorite Authors and made it pretty difficult to wade through those to find fics by other writers. You should basically check out everything ever written by any of my Favorite Authors, though, because they're phenomenally talented and just wow and wow and wow.
The lovely likyboy's has kindly translated my one-shot Walk Away into French. Check it out here if you like!
I, -EHWIES, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else. I have joined the review revolution. • Proud Event Coordinator, Archive Staffer, and Moderator at The Reviews Lounge, Too!
Oh wait, do you hear something? ...
-incessant cheering starts-
EHWIES, no other author can compete,
She can lasso Sirius Black like no other,
Even Mildred LeProut is jealous of EHWIES,
-attempts a cartwheel before flailing in the middle and falling over-
((Merci beaucoup to Wendy Brune for the cheer!))
EHWIES! EHWIES! Who’s the star?
((And to Desktop Warrior for this one!))

A (pretentious-ish?) quick guide to my stories...
Active works in progress: Through A Glass Darkly, my stab at an epic about the Marauders and company's sixth year, starts out as a YA-style exploration of Lily's transition from being Severus's loner best friend to becoming a confidante of her fellow Gryffindors, then cascades into a political drama about pureblood politics framing the First War and the rocky foundations of the Order of the Phoenix. Meanwhile, Bellatrix's Wedding, a nonlinear drabble collection exploring the various family, blood, and war politics underpinning the relationships between attendees of the wedding of Bellatrix and Rodolphus Lestrange's wedding, is my currently active dalliance. Finally, because I clearly have a death wish, I've recently started a new WIP, The Adventures of Lucy Weasley, Girl Wizard, which is my stab at next gen and will explore my headcanon for the fundamental mechanics of magic and spellwriting and draw attention to what I'm conceptualizing as a generation gap between the "all-was-well" tone of the epilogue and the PTSD and disillusionment that must have followed from children and young adults growing up during the Second War.
My only completed multichapter: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a dark take on Tom Riddle's adolescent love life, is another nonlinear drabble collection. In contrast to Wedding, Beasts is a little less plotty, a little more disjointed, and a lot more stylistically experimental.
Most 2deep4u experiments: story husk peeled from my bones, a stream-of-consciousness depiction of Snape's state of mind when Lily first leaves him, is a gloriously hot mess written in the immediate wake of a difficult breakup. The Weight and Bad, dialogue pieces centering around the Black sisters, are both experiments with leaving characters' motivations ambiguous in very short in media res conversations. Lash, in which Dorcas has a mental illness and James is her ex-boyfriend, is an even more extreme attempt at ambiguous dialogue that's steeped in relationship history, a style I'm also using to a lesser extent in Bellatrix's Wedding. Of all my stories, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them plays the most (by which I mean A LOT) with double meanings and fractured sentence structures.
Most popular works: Through A Glass Darkly has gotten ridiculous quantities of attention over the years as its word count has accumulated, and you are all undeservedly complimentary and I love you all. Lily/James crowd pleasers Walk Away, Idiosyncrasies, and Anecdotes also tend to receive absurd amounts of love, and nearly a decade later, I STILL have a steady trickle of email alerts for them coming into my inbox.
Fics I'm most proud of: Updates to Through A Glass Darkly may be sparse, but it's reached epic proportions over the last nearly six years and will always be my baby. I'm very pleased with how the risks I took turned out in Lash and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as well as in Infected, which toys with codependence and self-harm in Lily and Severus's friendship. My more recently written Capp & Capp LLP, or How Fast Scribonia Wove has a creative premise I'm really pleased with by turning the canonical inconsistencies between Sims 2 Veronaville and Sims 3 Monte Vista into a magical realism AU. Finally, better go and get your armor has probably the most coherent and cohesive plot out of anything I've done over the last few years and characterizes Minerva through the lens of a complicated ex-lovers relationship with Astronomy professor Septima Vector.
Coming soon(ish) (maybe): Definitely on the books are updates to Bellatrix's Wedding, The Adventures of Lucy Weasley, Girl Wizard, and Through A Glass Darkly (which I swear to god I WILL finish), as well as another Sims one-shot for my beloved Wendy Brune starring the Pleasant twins, who duke out their differences on the local political stage after they abruptly find themselves in Sunset Valley following the enigmatic "system upgrade" that rewinds the clock from Sims 2 to Sims 3 and overhauls gameplay and autonomy options in the process. Less likely to be continued--but still on my mind--is the currently one chapter long WIP The Kingdom Dance, my AU attempt to fix everything I hate about Frozen (and I REALLY REALLY REALLY hate Frozen) that picks up immediately after the events of canon Tangled and stars Rapunzel instead of Kristoff as Anna's traveling companion in her quest to track down Elsa. At the top of my "if only I had time but grad school" list is a second stab at a Marauder-era epic multichapter, this one set in the group's fourth or fifth year and featuring much more controversial and much less fanon-compliant themes than were on my mind when I started writing Darkly as a sixteen-year-old.
