That's what I think, too. Thought I had clearly stated that in my post: "Snape's request is what caused Voldemort to not outright kill Lily".

Seems like he only half-considered Snape's request.
Yeah, probably sadism. Voldemort may have let her live had she stepped aside, but as she didn't, I think she quickly ceased to be entertaining to him, and he seemed to feel that her being an inconvenience to him was the bigger issue. I also don't think Voldemort thinks much of his followers either, so even an easily filled request by one of them isn't going to get priority over inconvenience.

I love Lily because she chooses a path to match her convictions, and chooses to live her life fighting for what is right. It is our choices that show who we truly are.
