I always mean to leave a review, and then I just get too excited for the next chapter to do so! I really do like where this story is going, and the way you've had things planned out. I like the way you're showing the way Snape is kind of his own worst enemy. I really am not sure that he could make the stretch in his mind to thinking that Lily would actually be impressed by things Voldemort could teach him though... he knows Lily really well, and she's flat-out told him that the Dark Arts is one of the reasons she can't be his friend. Just a thought. Also, I'd really like to get to know Celestina and Ellery better. I know they probably don't figure too much into your plot, but I think it would bring more to the story to get a fuller idea of the other people Lily spends her time with. Can't wait for your update!

Author's Response: Hello! I'm happy to see you once again :)

I'm glad you're still enjoying the story. As for Snape, what I meant to show with his motive there is that he's in a very desperate place with Lily, so much so that his feelings might be overriding his sense of logic. I imagined that perhaps that was where his insistence on controlling emotion came from, later in life. You're right; he should know that Lily won't be impressed if he joins the Dark Lord. His primary motive for doing so was likely to increase his own power and to try to get some control in his life (re: his father and the Marauders), but I would imagine he'd have to rationalize it somehow where Lily is concerned.

With regard to Ellery and Celestina, I think you make a good point there as well. They aren't the main characters, like you said, but I can see that it would be interesting to include and flesh them out more. I'll have to consider that in the next chapter and those to come.

I've been working pretty hard on a couple of new stories, trying to get them finished before the semester starts so I can get them posted, but I'm going to get to work on the next chapter of Post Scriptum soon. I appreciate you being patient with my updates and continuing to follow the story. And of course, thanks so much for your very kind review :)
