    Can 'even though' be used in subjunctive mood?

    Even though you had gone there, you would have been unable to get in, for it had a full house all night.

    -----

    I would like to know whether:

    1---'Even though' is properly used.
    2---'Even if' can be adopted.

    Thank you.

    No, it isn't. It doesn't make sense.
    2---'Even if' can be adopted.
    'Even if' would make a proper sentence.
    Thank you.
