I am almost in tears now (and I'm moving to Rachel's Bad Blood afterwards, oh dear), though I'm not sure who I feel saddest for.

This is giving me so many feels and I hate not being able to stay coherent!

The retelling of both their deaths physically hurt me, as did Helena's harshness towards Venn (though he deserves it, in my opinion). And Venn who still thinks Helena might forgive him and who still hopes to see them married... All I want to do now is go and write a fanfiction of your fanfiction where Venn and Helena are united properly and she forgives him and all that unprobable soppy nonsense.

Salazar is a monster, exchanging Venn's presence close to Helena against his silence about thd basilisk. Now I also want to see a story retelling CoS from Venn's point of view.

Gah, I don't think I'd properly realised how in love I am with this story before it was over. Something is going to be missing for a while, but hey, I still have Post Scriptum to catch up on!

Congratulations Amanda ♥

Author's Response: So I really just feel so awful for Venn. I really wanted to believe in love and let them make up, and I had to entertain the possibility that one day Helena would forgive him and they could live a peaceful afterlife together forever without any more drama to break up their happiness. I don't know how realistic that is--I mean, I obviously understand being angry at the person who killed you, whatever the reason--but I hope it's an intriguing thought :)

You know what? Write that fanfiction. Haha. Someone needs to be comfortable deviating from canon and giving us ALL THE FLUFF. I would love to do an "alternate ending" but I just don't know if I or the readers would buy it.

Yeah, I was hoping that Salazar's final appearance would really cement him in there as the true villain of the story, despite all the stupid and selfish things other characters did. Someone asked me why I thought the Baron didn't tell anyone about the Chamber and this is the reasoning I came up with. I do think it's kind of a cool way of re-framing that plot line.

I've got a big hole in my heart that hasn't properly healed yet--but it's only been a few days, and never fear, I have other stuff in the works for the fall!

Thanks, Val, so much, for all of the wonderful reviews and just being willing to be patient with new chapters and offer up your thoughts and really engage me in discussion about my work. Your reviews are so satisfying and you are one of several readers who really kept me going when I hit blocks and struggled. I can't really express how much your comments and your support mean to me. Thank you :)
