Synopsis for "A Faerie Romance"

Still being hospitalized, Barbara's condition worsens, and her soul leaves for a moment in order to talk with the other Prometheas who are in "The Immateria."

Meanwhile, Sophie Bangs and her friend, Stacia, go to the library to find out who is "Promethea." There, Sophie reads the life story of Charlton Sennet, who is the author of A Faerie Romance.

She learns that Sennet's inspiration for Promethea was his housemaid, Anna. She and Sennet had an affair, and his marriage ended soon after. He and Anna had a child, but it was only "half real." When Anna died during childbirth, Sennet became overwhelmed with loneliness.

While reading Sennet's story, a magician, named Jack Faust, approaches Sophie in the library. He begins to antagonize her, but their meeting is interrupted when Stacia notices them holding hands.

Back at the hospital, Barbara's life seems to be slipping away.
