Hello! Just wanted to ask for a quick specification on something- in the US you have to already be an Audible member to listen to Sandman Act One?
Sorry if this is an obvious question I was just a little confused when you said it was free with no strings attached and wanted to make sure
I'm not sure whether you need to be an Audible Member or just have an Amazon account to log in to Audible. I suspect the latter. They want people to hear it.
I know they are rolling out different ways of listening to Sandman Act I for free (including, if you have an Alexa device, or even the Alexa app on your phone, Saying "Alexa, Read me the Sandman" -- which right now gives you a 5 minute sample, but will soon give you the whole thing) but I'm not quite sure when each thing is going to happen in which territory.
http://adbl.co/morpheus is the US link.

Mortal Coil part 9 first previous next
AU where Zag makes a deal with Chaos to become mortal, leaving his body behind.
[Description: Anastasius dreams that he comes into his home presenting a fish to his mother. His mother seems to be ignoring him so he tugs at her sleeve to get her attention. She turns into a horrific creature and stabs her thumb into where his neck wound is. This jolts him into the second layer of his dream and he slowly drowns in his blood. He gets saved by Morpheus.]

Hello! I had a quick question regarding the summoning spell in the first chapter of Sandman. During the spell Roderick Burgess says “Oh my lord.” Is that one of the reasons they got Dream instead of Death? If he had said, “Oh my lady.” Would he have gotten Death or even Despair instead? And by that logic, is Desire eternally safe from spells like that because they’re gender fluid?
No, they got Morpheus because he was exhausted beyond all reckoning after the events of Sandman Overture. It was like catching a lion in a mousetrap.

Morpheus to English translations (for those reading Sandman)
Morpheus AKA Dream of The Endless has his own language. It’s a simple enough language once you learn the basics.  Here are a few translations of Morpheus to English...
_______________ 
“Perhaps.” - Yes.  Definitely yes.  Yes, but I don’t want to actually say the word “Yes” to this for various reasons, usually out of pride, sometimes something else, but usually pride.
Tumblr media
“You dare...” - The Morpheus equivalent of “I can’t even...” or various swear words.
Tumblr media
“I did not need rescuing.” - Thank you for rescuing me.
“I was doing perfectly well on my own.”  - I was NOT doing perfectly well on my own.  I was in deep shit.
Tumblr media
“I believe I was quite capable, given enough time, of rescuing myself.” - I have no idea how I was going to get out of that...
Tumblr media
“Petty hedge-magick.” - (Actual meaning: Novice or amateur spellcasting.) Morpheus meaning:  Something I woefully under-estimate. 
Tumblr media
“...help me... ...please...” - I am weak, defenseless, and completely at your mercy and if you nurse me back to health we shall never speak of this again and no one else will ever hear those words uttered from me. I am going to lose consciousness now.  Bye. 
Tumblr media
“After a fashion, I can.” - It’ll happen.  Might take me a few decades but it’ll happen. I can do it.  I will do it.  But I’ll be lazy about it.  Don’t rush me.
Tumblr media
“I mislike (insert random thing here)” - I hate this thing!
Tumblr media
“I feel cold.” or “It is cold.” - I am traumatized by what is currently happening.
Tumblr media
“What could possibly go wrong?”  - Equitable to Sarah saying “It’s a piece of cake.” in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.  It’s a statement made in over-confidence that leads to disaster.  He might as well say “Everything is about to go very, very, very, wrong.”  
Tumblr media
“I am perfectly self-sufficient.”  - Oh, God, I am so lonely!  Please, hold me.
Tumblr media
_______________________________  
Bonus:
Daniel:
“I walked.” - You REALLY want me to sit here and explain the mechanics of interdimensional travel to you right here and now?  No.  This is easier.  And technically true.
Tumblr media
“Time to go for a walk.” - I have a mission. (or) I have to set right one of Morpheus’ many f--k ups.  Keep supper heated for me until I get back.  Also I’m being cryptic because of wibbly wobbly Timey Wimey... stuff.

Lessons from the Gods
These are personal lessons I have learned while interacting with individual gods that I thought could be helpful lessons to others as well
Zeus- One’s past mistakes should not influence their present chances, within reason.
Hera- It is alright to not be a perfect mother and you shouldn’t try hiding any postpartum. It is better to admit the fear, pain, and bad thoughts and get help than to let them fester.
Hephaestus- Beauty belongs to those who stand tall despite what others say... Focus on what you can do and not what you can’t. Please yourself not others
Apollon- There’s a “beast” in each of us that we must face daily and you won’t always win, but you should keep fighting anyways.
Artemis- “Roles” are just loose guidelines that one should not take seriously. Do you. Always do you
Persephone- Your story will change with each new mouth that speaks it. Don’t let it bother you. You know the truth and those who matter will know the truth. That is what is important
Hermes- You can be extremely childish and act dumb all you want and still be extremely smart, cunning, and mature when the situation calls for it
Nyx- Elegance and grace does not come naturally to everyone and if it doesn’t for you but you still wish to cultivate it do not give it up. 
Hestia- Spoiling others for no real reason makes you feel so much happier.
Aphrodite- Whatever makes you feel beautiful is alright. If you feel beautiful covered in makeup wonderful. If you feel beautiful all natural, wonderful. If you feel beautiful with mud on your face.. Guess what? That’s wonderful. Real beauty shines through when you feel happy in your skins, no matter what covers it.
Hades- Doom and gloom is fun. Doom and gloom does not spell evil. Take pride in your personal doom and gloom. ((I like watching creepy stuff in the middle of the night and can’t fall asleep without a good ghost video playing and that’s awesome))
Athena- there is always more to learn and asking questions, no matter how “silly” or “stupid” they feel, is not something to apologize for. 
Thanatos- Being death positive is a good thing. We shouldn’t fear the most natural of things. Yes it is hard to imagine being gone from this world, but it is better to embrace it now and have things planned then to leave your loved ones with nothing to go on. Own your mortality and make it amazing while you can
Morpheus- Dreams don’t have to end when you open your eyes, you just have to keep working for them.

So Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is 30 years old this month. Since most of you know Preludes & Nocturnes as a trade paperback, let’s have a look at the advertisements featured in Issue #1.

mythology aesthetic: morpheus
“Morpheus is a god associated with sleep and dreams. In Ovid’s Metamorphoses he is the son of Sleep, who appears in dreams in human form. From the medieval period, the name began to stand more generally for the god of dreams, or of sleep.”
