If you're referring to "[GUIDE] Debrick your bricked SCH-I535! [BOOTLOADER/HARDBRICK]", I have tried that a few times. I guess I could give it a few more shots if that's my only option.

That's awful. I guess I was looking at a guide for a non-Verzion phone. Thank you for the information, though.

So, if I understand my situation, I guess the question now is: How can I lock my bootloader back up while it's hardbricked, correct?

No. Your only focus is on getting the phone to boot back up. The only method that we have to do so is the bootloader/hardbrick thread by SpryroDazee posted at the top of our Q/A section.
