The Storyteller’s Journey There and Back Again

Once upon a time, in the gardens of the moon, there lived a boy called David Copperfield. He was a book thief who wanted nothing more but to find a place called the chamber of secrets. This chamber was said to contain the time machine that David wanted to use to travel to the world's end, because that's where the best books are. He only needed to ask mister Pip, the magician's apprentice, to help him find a wrinkle in time, and he would be off on the road. After all, how hard can it be? So David set off to find Pip, who was supposed to be with his beloved in a house of mirth. When he found him, Pip said that he will help him, if he answers one question. "Why is the fault in our stars, and not in us?" he asked.

"Because ours are hearts of darkness that refuse to see the beauty of them. They are something strange and deadly to us because their bloodlines are different. It's easier to find fault in things that are different." Pip nodded. 
"To find the wrinkle you must go past the two towers, survive the storm of swords, go through the vanity fair and dance with a dragon. When you've done all this, you will have to enter the forest of hands and teeth, and in its very centre you will see the wrinkle."
