How It Begins
You might be anyone (probably male) attending the keynote address "Rolling Away the Misconceived Stone: Structural Semiotic Signification in Mark 16:1-8" at the 14th Annual PANTS Conference, but it's obvious to you that the speaker, Professor Wortschlachter, doesn't know what he's talking about. Your mind wanders to the attractive blonde woman sitting a few rows ahead. (FLASHBACK: You met her briefly in the breakfast queue this morning and exchanged pleasantries.) Back at the conference, you feel a twinge from your chest. Unable to leave or even speak, the twinge gets worse until you black out. That's when you remember the woman's name: Felicity Hope.
You regain awareness in a grey limbo. You are empty-handed and looking pallid and insubstantial. You trudge "north" towards a faint orange glow until you reach Hell's Gate. A demon is chiseling off the inscription "ABANDON HOPE ALL YE THAT ENTER HERE" and a notice posted on the gate says that Hell is closed for demythologization.
