Panel 1: We are back inside Rose's imagination, in a scenario we last saw in 2014: Rose is a Victorian lady languishing on a chaise longue.

Caption: Once again, I was confined to my fainting couch by injuries.

Panel 2: Old-timey Rose gazes longingly out the window.

Caption: Why did this keep happening to me? Why, this time, was I being kept prisoner in my own home?

Panel 3: Old-timey Rose buries her head in her knees.

Caption: If only I could walk, I would sally forth and defeat Lord Fauntlejohn's clockwork soldiers single-handedly. I cursed my dreary fate.

Panel 4: In the real world, Rose is sitting on her bed. Alex stands beside her.

Alex: Bored?

Rose: In a way, but I think I...may also be...writing a novel.

Alt-Text: Many novels are caused by boredom.
