|Reviews for Into the Ether|
| MinervaJB chapter 11 . 1/21
Perfect. Just perfect.
The way of presenting it was brilliant: reading the letters sent into the ether (I love the title) without knowing Hermione's reaction, and then showing us too finals, two "Hermiones", both with HEA, one DH-compliant with epilogue and all. That's a hard thing to do.
I read it while listening to Ludovico Einaudi (I had I giorni, Primavera and Love is a Mistery on repeat) and that made the story even better.

That last letter was bittersweet, in a way, and beautiful.
| bluefirefly5 chapter 10 . 9/16/2013
That ending seems sadder somehow. Sure, Ron lived, but Hermione shouldn't have married him in the first place.
| bluefirefly5 chapter 9 . 9/16/2013
Yay! I love this ending, it's very fitting.
| bluefirefly5 chapter 8 . 9/16/2013
Go Hermione! Save Severus and bring him far in the past!
| bluefirefly5 chapter 7 . 9/16/2013
Nooo! That's too sad an ending, and after such an horrid year!
| bluefirefly5 chapter 6 . 9/14/2013
Like Severus, I still don't understand what Hermione ever saw in Ron.
| bluefirefly5 chapter 5 . 9/14/2013
I so understand why Severus is angry... And with all the stress he's under...
| bluefirefly5 chapter 4 . 9/14/2013
Poor Severus, the stress of that fourth year must have been awful for him.
| bluefirefly5 chapter 3 . 9/14/2013
I totally agree with Severus' letter. I remember how angry I was the first time I read the book. I found Lupin incredibly irresponsible, and Black seemed unstable to me. The kind of rage Severus exhibited, when he's so obviously in control the rest of the time, hinted at a major trauma. Plus, anybody with any notion about healing couldn't condone the treatment Severus received in that tunnel.
| bluefirefly5 chapter 2 . 9/14/2013
Well, that was an interesting second year. Of course, Dumbledore would know already about Horcruxes...
| bluefirefly5 chapter 1 . 9/13/2013
Severus must have been so lonely... I wonder why he chose Hermione at that time.

The first 9 chapters are well worth reading. The last two chapters did not add any worth to the story. The huge number of author notes throughout the story are problematic. A story should stand on its own, and this one does. Putting a huge number of author notes before and after each chapter means that the flow of the story is interrupted, and the suspension of disbelief (the reader's enthusiastic involvement in the story) is ruined. It would be much better to lump all the notes after the story, making them optional, or else to incorporate the most important bits right into the story itself. Still, despite the notes and the 2 weird last chapters, I found the main story itself intriguing and I hope you continue to post your stories so we can enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Congratulations. I was skeptical at how you'd ever manage to pull this off, but it worked.

What an interesting take on DH! Sorry I didn’t review each chapter as they passed…you had some great lines, and Severus was so guarded in his affection for her at first…the little ‘slips’ he made as the story progressed were charming. I won’t give away any spoilers, but I did like the ending…
