so this is just a conglomeration of *polished* notes I've made over the course of writing PS: mostly I wrote these down to get my thoughts together and to help me remember things, and they also serve as a sort of sparknotes for my book, too, when people inquire upon various symbols, motifs, ect. So I figured I'd post them! They're probably rife with typos, considering I wrote a lot of the notes at like 4 in the morning when inspiration often strikes. I hope they're helpful and enrich the reading experience! And let me know if there's anything I should add, as well.
