    Summary

    "The Endless," spoke her brother in his white suit, fingers running through his white hair, "aren't real, Persephone. They never were. It's a story, a myth. Like the idea of Chronos and Nyx in Greek myth. We know the Olympians and the Titans and all that exist, in a way. Paradise Island, after all, says that much. The Endless are just a just-so story."

    "No," Death said, as she held up her hands. "I know they're real."

    Daniel Hall shook his head. "Persephone, you've had this belief for a long time." His stare was a hooded one. "None of it is real. You do have your powers, but after the scenes in Metropolis I'd think that would reinforce what you really need."

    He leaned forward slightly and for a moment she caught a faint glimpse of white hair that seemed blond in the right angle and a horridly familiar smile.

    "That's one thing that's good about this city. They're good with metahuman patients. They'll teach you that control."

    Summary

    Hob cannot believe what is happening to him. He’s almost positive this is a dream, or at the very least, not real, but if the fucking King of Dreams wants to make Hob– Hob!-- his spouse, then who the fuck is Hob to argue? Getting to live forever and being married to that beautiful man? Sign him up. It’ll be far better than whatever he could have hoped for in the– real world? His world?

    The idea of being courted by an actual king seems to be too good to be true. Maybe this is just a dream, but Hob’s not at all eager to wake up if it is.

    Summary

    The realization that Endless is going to become famous hits Hob like a bolt of lightning. It’s undeniable at this point, and hysteria rises inside him, bubbling up and spilling out in a laugh that he covers with his hand just as the song ends and Desire is busy waiting for the crowd to simmer down. They have all the workings of successful musicians: talent, obviously… but also crowd work from Desire, charisma from Death, and the fucking mystery and anticipation from Dream, the quietest member of the group, now a year into their label, and he finally surprises everyone with his ethereal voice.

    And Hob is coming to understand that this little interest in Dream isn’t just as a fan, dazed, envious, obsessed. No, it’s something more terrifying than that.

    Summary

    She found herself stopping in her garden, looking at her brother as he was doing one of those things like vomit on a canvas he called a painting.

    "Fuck."

    He turned his head to her.

    "I can feel it, Des."

    She laughed uneasily. "I can feel my sphere again. Our dear brother had another Helm incident and this one must be worse."

    Summary

    She knelt in front of Dream of the Endless, her wings like great dark shadows lit by a fell starlight.

    "You lied to me, my creator."

    Her dark hands brushed his face.

    "Let me think I was one of you, all of you did. Was there ever a real being called Death? Or was it just another lie?"

    She looked at the wards that held her creator. They were shabby things, ones that could be easily broken by just a set of motions, and nodded, standing up to look at Burgess.

    Summary

    The Dreaming was in lockdown, all gates shut against dreamers and visitors alike. Morpheus had judged that some time with dreamless sleep would benefit all creatures more than the possibility of walking unaware into a realm in conflict.

    Apparently it was that bad. Hob didn’t know, because Hob, the Regent of the Dreaming, had more urgent business to deal with.

     

    A sequel to The Uses of Adversity.

    This fic was almost titled: "How to train your anthropomorphic personification of a boyfriend into being slightly less of a prick everyone wants to punch in the face'

    Summary

    The rite was done and as he flashed the athame and spoke the Word the last time, the one that had taken the longest effort and the one that had been done in secret in the midst of witch-hunts when by sheer law of averages they'd actually caught a legitimate witch (who he'd let go and had watched impartially as she massacred so many of the troops in his own unit at the time) he was prepared to face his Stranger, who of all people would understand. He was his closest....friend, if not a great deal more.

    He had spoken an incantation for the one who had made him immortal, who could restore his family (though he did not specify this part). Light flashed and then a being fell through with great dark wings that towered out, pushed up by the power of the circle until the flight feathers brushed the roof of his house. The being that fell before him he saw as immortals did, and it was not the dark-skinned woman he'd seen with his stranger then, even if the features were broadly similar. Her skin was bone-hued and her shape was somewhat younger and yet much more ancient, eldritch, even.

    "In the name of God," he exhaled in shock.

    "You are not my Stranger. Who the Hell are you?"

    Summary

    Book length story about God and Crowley’s relationship in the Beginning, during the middle, and after Non-ageddon. Also includes Aziraphale’s relationship with God and Heaven. It’s going to be a dark comedy with lots of twists and turns for zest.

    Summary

    Hob has always been the kind of person to try anything once. Unfortunately, that applies to the literal anything and that is exactly the reason he finds himself in this situation.

    The walls have some weird shimmery blue pattern on them that moves like waves, and he’s maybe not in the most reasonable mindset, but he is pretty certain that they were just solid white before. He is very certain that the girl who is tracing them with her fingers and giggling quietly was not there before either, because he had had some sense in him and locked all the doors and windows before he’d taken a hit.

    Summary

    She had thought that she would have children and that it would make things better. All it had done was make things worse, make life harder for her and the bitterness over the way her Issues, as she called her depression, made it harder to be there for her children led to vicious spirals. Nor did it help that she became frankly jealous of the way that their eldest daughter did things that she wanted to do. He'd found her cringing in a corner with Night yelling at her, staring into space the way she did. He'd pulled his wife aside and they'd had a very sharp talk alone and when they returned they found their eldest daughter seemingly as if nothing had happened, looking after her siblings.

    "See?"

    Night had turned to him then with her hands on her hips.

    "The girl's fine. She's just fine."

    Summary

    Assorodus, meaning "silvery water".

    The Endless were not the first entities to come into existence at the dawn of the cosmos, of everything known. Yes, Father Time and Mother Night were there, but also someone else. Known to the Greeks as Talos, to others the Writer, or even the First Writer, giver of purpose to everything that breathed and sometimes to things that did not. For the sake of many, it would be easier to call this being simply Purpose, with whom Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams, came into close connection at the beginning of his reign, for men tend to ponder their purpose in their dreams. In front of each other, they can allow themselves to be open, and most of their secrets shared. Soon the two of the most potent creations started to depend on each other's friendship and eventually, Morpheus caught feelings he shouldn't have.

    This is his story through Talos' eyes.

    Summary

    Tension is good - necessary, even - on a stage. It's less good in a relationship.

    Calliope wants Dream's help. Dream wants to make amends. Hob doesn't want to be a burden.

    The sequel to "That Which Constitutes Poetic Faith," in which Morpheus is a prolific theatre director and Hob is a stagehand.

    Summary

    “Dream,” Slips from her lips unbidden, barely a whisper.

    She sees him open his mouth and shape her name, but the sound does not even list upon the air and his face falls. Despair feels the moment he plunges once more into her domain, sudden and all-consuming enough to almost bring her to her knees with the force of it.

    Desire’s arm around her waist holds her up and they wipe away her tears with gentle fingers. Their face is thunderous as they step into the light where Dream can see them – and their brother flinches before he can master the reaction.

    Or

    Despair and Desire find that lording over Dream's capture doesn't quite go to plan

    Summary

    Once upon a time, there was a thing that happened when you fell asleep called “Dreaming.” It was said that folk would lay down their heads and visit fantastical places, and it was strange and wonderful and sometimes frightening. Not anymore, though – they say something caught the Dream King, keeps him bound up in his castle, keeps the Gates of Horn and Ivory locked tight against those who would enter.

    Hob Gadling remembers the last dream he ever had when he was a boy; he remembers the strange man he met within it, and the war that already was consuming the Dreaming. Sometimes he thinks he would do anything to save that Dream King, if the stories happened to be true.

    One day, he just might.

    Summary

    In chapter 4 of "To the Tensions It Creates" (a Hob Gadling/Dream of the Endless fic), Del is late to dinner because she and two friends are working on a mural that is a "Dadaist thingy," a "train that was also a peacock" involving oil paints, newspaper cutouts and water colors.

    This is my take on the mural.

    Summary

    “It’s too bad you’re not secretly some rich fuck, laddie,” Seamus mused with his chin in his hand, “You could always just buy the place yourself, or build your own.”
    Hob sat up so suddenly the barstool wobbled like the lip of a preschooler. The world only spun a little as he pointed a semi dramatic finger at Old Seamus. “That’s it Seamus, old chap! I’ll just buy the place!” Seamus of course only chuckled at him.
    “Oh aye? With what, the vast wealth you’ve accumulated over an immortal lifetime? Yer drunk, boy.”
