writing in the process. I'm very grateful to her!

Explanation: I posted the original version
of this story on fanfiction.net in 2004. Then I took it down, and a revised version was published as a 'zine in September
2005. I'm now posting it on my own site - with slight editorial changes. Nothing significant, mostly just fixing
the typos I missed the first two times around. The 'zine version, for folks who prefer hard copy, is still available
from Requiem Publications.
"Postscript" is one of the first stories I'd ever written, in any genre, and by far the most
I hadn't read much fanfic at this point, and as a result I managed to hit just about every
fanfic cliche there is - right down to the lovable dog.
But I have a warm place in my heart for this story. There are so many reasons it shouldn't work
- and yet it does. Cliche'd or not, this story made me very happy while I was writing it, and it still makes me
happy when I re-read it. I hope it does the same for you!
