Gioia’s Rec:
This is absolutely one of the most creative, imaginative fics I’ve encountered in the ship, if not the fandom.  In fact, I enjoyed this story so much I found myself re-reading it only a few months later.   And when I was preparing this rec for re-posting on this site, I found myself re-reading it yet again.

I was absolutely delighted by the careful plotting and beautiful characterizations, but it was the unique plot which captivated my imagination from the very beginning.  The story surprised me repeatedly, and yet everything made perfect sense in the end.  I particularly enjoyed Luna in this fic, as her quirky, compassionate nature was perfectly depicted.  Even if you’ve never had any interest in this ship, you should at least attempt this fic.  The Hermione of this fic would be just as vociferous as the most ardent hater of the SS/HG ship, which is precisely why you’ll be quickly convinced of the story and ship’s plausibility, given the unique circumstances here.
