    Summary

    The confession is done, but there's still much to talk about - not that Dream is rushing to do it, a maelstrom of emotions causing him to hesitate. Thankfully, his favourite niece is right there to gently prod and cuddle her stubborn Uncle into motion.

    As it turns out, conversations don't have to be scary, and loving someone (and being loved) is worth all the effort.

     

    or the boys talk, confess again, kiss and all of that. but not before rose and dream get to be cute. purest fluff

    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

    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.
