    Summary

    TW: PLEASE CHECK THE TAGS

    1891

    Hob Gadling realises he wants to apologise to his stranger just a few years too late.

    He shouldn't have doubled down on what he said, as now he has probably lost any hope he had of ever becoming his friend. But he refuses to let that be the last time they meet, he has to find a way to say he is sorry and maybe even fix this mess.

    So he does something he has never done before, not in all his centuries.

    He begins to search for his stranger...

    Summary

    “See you next Tuesday, bright and early, where we’ll - bye Priya, thank you- we’ll-,”

    He waves the last few out, the hall stuttering into silence as he sighs.

    “We’ll find out if the book is half as good as the dream,”

    Summary

    In 1689, Hob Gadling and Dream meet once more, after Hob has lost everything. That night, their meeting goes on longer than expected when the conversation turns to what it means to live, to lose, and to be the fathers of dead sons. Unable to bear the thought of sending a man who so echoes Dream's own grief back into the night alone, Dream breaks his own rule and invites Hob to stay with him for a time, at least until he can get back on his feet.

    The story of two grief-stricken, divorced, and widowed fathers to sons they lost too young truly seeing one another and there, at their lowest point, doing their best to put themselves and each other back together.

    Summary

    Sequel to Of Nightmares and Sins

    A year has passed since Dream has recovered his tools of office and recovered himself from almost being remade... into Dread of the Endless - thanks in large part to Johanna, Hob, and his sister Death... he refuses, even now, to acknowledge Desire's aid in any of it given their fault in it all.

    However, things are far from okay. Dread remains ever present, Lucifer is far from accepting their humiliation, and there is once again plans being made to try and destroy the Endless.

    All too soon, Johanna and Hob find themselves at the center of it all - with some allies (sometimes unwanted)… doing what they can to try and limit the damage and fallout. Of course, made all the worse, by having to also care for a suddenly very human Dream...

    Recap inside Of Nightmares and Sins, so theoretically could be read without the first part if wanted

    Summary

    In 1989, Hob Gadling nurses a drink in The White Horse, hoping his Stranger will walk through those doors one more. He’s ready to apologise for 1889, for pushing too far, despite the hurt that still stings whenever he thinks about that day a little too hard.

    In 1989, Death comes to a decision. Her brother has suffered for too long. Though she is bound by ancient rules, unable to intervene, she knows of somebody who isn’t and hopes he will be willing to save her dear brother from Fawney Rig, and she finds him waiting once more at The White Horse.

    A week later, Hob Gadling saves Dream of the Endless from his prison of glass and iron, and the two navigate the troublesome waters of friendship and healing.

    Summary

    Dream has long known his soulmate, though particularly inclined towards denial Destiny has not commented on it; rather obvious as it is. At first glance one might assume raven feathers, a smear of shadow that he cannot simply forget, splayed in a metamorphosis of three planes of existence on either side of carved vertebrae. Though Desire certainly teases enough about Dream's love affairs and attempts at ignorance.

    Summary

    Morpheus would never consider himself a fool.

    Stubborn, yes. Maybe a little prideful and known to hold a grudge. But he was anything but stupid.

    So why was everyone telling him otherwise?

He cannot bare the thought of everyone knowing he failed to keep his partner satisfied. However, a chance encounter with an old acquaintance might just be the blessing in disguise he needs to save him from this toxic relationship.
