Gioia’s Rec:
This is probably my favorite of Rhetor’s fics, and I always struggle to articulate why, particularly without spoiling the story. Hermione has done a great, unfathomable wrong. And yet this story presents such an amazing burst of hope, capturing my imagination in a way few stories have. There’s something so beautiful about the possibilities that the future holds in this tale, as both Hermione and Hogwarts are set to reemerge “out of the ashes.” The story is extremely unique and a fantastic example of Rhetor’s professional, literary style of writing.
