    Summary

    After the disastrous 1889 meeting, Hob Gadling turned to the occult to find a way to contact his stranger and apologize. Yet despite becoming a fairly adept occultist in the process, Hob ultimately lost his nerve and never cast a single spell to contact Dream.

    Unfortunately, that was not the end of the matter, when Hob's dabbling brought him to the attention of Roderick Burgess, who is now convinced that Hob is a fellow Magus, capable of convincing Dream to give Burgess the gift he gave to Hob all those centuries ago: immortality.

    Now, Hob must use wits, magic, and a great deal of charm to convince Roderick Burgess he is indeed an ancient, powerful Magus who wants nothing more than to help Burgess become immortal too, if he is to get himself and Dream out of Fawney Rig.

    Summary

    After saving the life of the dragon Death of the Endless, Hob Gadling is given a boon - near-eternal life, same as the Dragon bestowing the gift. He finds himself in the castle of the Endless, serving the very family of dragons (or rather, one in particular) that had gifted him his long life.

    Dream of the Endless does not need a caretaker, does not need a minder, but after Hob Gadling has been his Caretaker for more than a century, he has, perhaps, grown accustomed to the human. At least he does not mind Dream's sharp tongue.

    Now, all would be well if Dream could, after centuries of looking, find his Rider, his other half, the one destined for him.

    Summary

    When his dear stranger returns after over a hundred years, Hob assumes they will return to their regular routine. Instead, the visits become frequent, more casual, and slowly his friend he now knows is Dream of the Endless opens up to him. He tasks Hob Gadling with an impossible mission: teach Morpheus what it is to be human, how to grow and heal as a human, or else the cracks in The Dreaming may never fully close.

    But humanity is complicated. Healing is nonlinear, with many wounds and little sutures, and to grow sometimes means derooting the past. As their connection grows from something centurial and casual to a reccurring pull towards one another, bordering on love, Hob helps Morpheus expose the horrific underbelly of his biggest mistakes and most painful betrayals, happiest days and darkest nights, in order to allow himself the room for something new to blossom in place of the pain.

    Summary

    Prince Morpheus' magic has been in disarray for months. He cannot reconcile the two poles of his nature, Dream and Nightmare, and cannot control when and how they manifest. He is imprisoned in his father's castle and under the care of Dr. Roderick Burgess who is increasingly desperate to find a way to at least control Morpheus' magic if not to effect a cure.

    Hob just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Summary

    Hob Gadling meets an interesting stranger in The Whitehorse Tavern. This stranger challenges Hob on his assertion that he wishes to live forever.

    You may think you have heard this story before.

    You think wrong.

    In this story, there is one key difference. Hob Gadling is not surprised when he lives to meet his stranger a hundred years later. Hob Gadling knew this would happen, because Hob already was immortal. And his stranger is in the same boat as him, a mortal made immortal in a world that was anything but forgiving.

    This is their story.

    You may have heard something similar, but not this. This is the story of a lonely man letting someone in. This is a story of secrets. And this, above all else, is a story of love.

    Enjoy.

    Summary

    Hob is a patient man, and Dream is a stubborn one. Or a stubborn something, considering Hob still doesn't quite understand what exactly he is. In fact, there isn't much he does know about his stranger, and even less about his stranger's family -- so Hob certainly hadn't expected his friend's sister to waltz on into The New Inn asking if he had any apples and telling him that she was in town for work that "luckily" didn't involve him.

    And, naturally, he also hadn't seen it coming when she told him that his stranger needed his help. But if Hob had learned anything in his unnaturally long life, it was that things never went quite how you were expecting them to -- and sometimes you wound up breaking into a rich magician's basement to get your friend back.

    Summary

    “What did Apollo dream of?” Asks Hob, his voice a questing note which brushes the curve of Dream’s ear. He lies in naked warmth across the corded thew of his back, breathing life into marble. Breathing for them both.

    Muscles tense beneath him and for a moment, Hob wants to swallow his words. The question has come too early. He should have waited. Let another century pass in quiet restraint for answers to fall unbidden. Then Dream moves under him with tectonic force, and every muscle rolls to bear his weight with ease. Impassive eyes stare blankly up.

    Or: Of Godly dreams, pagan deities and what it means to be human.

    Summary

    Hob Gadling decided that death was a mug's game and that he wouldn't participate, thus beginning his immortality and his long friendship with a man he knows only as his "stranger." It only takes him four hundred years to realize he's in love. Surely, his "stranger" can't be denser than that. Or can he?

    Summary

    He was almost grateful he couldn’t speak because he wasn’t sure what he would say to that; after the medieval times, the Inquisition and the persecution of people the Church believed were witches, Hob never thought he would be harassed for his immortality again. Of course he knew he couldn’t just outright tell people about it or stay in the same place long enough for people to realize he didn’t age, but he wasn’t as scared anymore. Perhaps he had been too naïve to believe that.

    I’m perfectly safe. I can’t die, remember?

    Aye. But you can be hurt or captured. We must be cautious.

    And oh, how right had his Stranger been at the time. Sure, it took 200 years for it to happen but Hob thought he ought to have listened to him; maybe he wouldn’t be in this situation if he had.

     

    *

    What if Hob had been kidnapped? And, even so, had the opportunity to free Dream from the Burgess' estate?
