Sandman: Book Of Dreams
He must pick two people whom Desire cannot pair. Only if he succeeds will Desire marry him. Abel pleaded with his brother to take the mirror back from the time Cain had stolen it, and finally he does.
What they find upon their return is a palace filled with frights and nightmares. It is His six-year-old protagonist, Nemo, takes seven eventful trips to Slumberland.
The first night he takes in a Giants vs. Pirates baseball game at Slumberland Stadium.
On his journeys he reads from the book of all that is known. At first he is perplexed by the logic of the chapter describing how the world was made being a quarter of the way into the book. However, he soon realizes that if the book truly contains everything that ever happened, and everything that will ever happen, then surely it can tell him if he will ever find the golden bottle.
And so his adventure continues. Once Ray leaves Wanda proceeds to tell the unconscious Darren a story about one Countess Protopsilka.

Morpheus shows the Mender what he wants to see, though he questions whether the Mender will really want to see it in the end. What Morpheus shows him is something which can never be mended.

He is the human capacity to imagine meaning, to tell stories: an anthropomorphic projection of our thirst for mythology. When I opened up the package I felt like a kid again, unwrapping that mail-order glow in the dark inflatable Frankenstein from the back cover of a comic book.
