Crescoptiscope image attributed to Dante.

 “Dante was not sure he was cut out for the Spiritus Quarere. The real world had enough drama and interest for him. Why spend most of your day trancing helping those unfortunate souls in the astral when there was so much to do here? Here he was building respect at one of the most elite schools in England. Here he was drinking with these powerful men who knew the king. Here he enjoyed immense pleasure frolicking with Ann… Emily… and… well all the other lovely wenches he would meet. Still he did not want to jeopardize his chances at becoming a knight, after sacrificing so much.”

-Excerpt from The Visions of Vespertina.
