    Summary

    Dream wakes from his slumber to find nothing much has actually changed in his life, except how he feels about himself. Absent of responsibilities, he finds himself hanging on by visiting his new neighbor, whose ignorant choices are Dream’s one source of worry. Dream doesn’t know what he is doing anymore: Hob Gadling, it seems, has it all figured out, and Dream has to know how he manages to keep going.

    Summary

    Hob could have and did count himself fortunate that the wounds he'd taken at Third Ypres entitled him to a three week home leave. That was more than time enough to meet Death here, at the gates of the place they held his....friend. Here, in the last stretch of a plan that had arisen in swiftness, there was one moment of foreboding that led him to turn to her.

    "Are you ready?"

    "Are you?" Death's question was calm, and her manner was likewise. Calm and confident but then she was Death herself, so what did she have to fear?

    "Damn right I am."

    Summary

    Roderick Burgess went fishing for an Endless.

    When Dream rejects Roderick Burgess’s spell, it shifts targets. One Hob Gadling, touched by Death herself, is pulled through instead.

    Hob was certainly aware of the supernatural, but he always kept it in his periphery. The beyond natural world that he does his best to avoid for all that he walks a half step inside it. The closest he got was once every hundred years in the White Horse, chatting with his Stranger, his mysterious man who is not a Man.

    Yes, sure, he’s an immortal man from the 1300’s, but he spends his days with the worst and best of humanity. He doesn’t need to add demons and magic to the mix for him to find wonder and sorrow all on his own. He still has so much of the mundane to explore- to live for. Maybe, he always thought, he would get bored and start exploring the supernatural that seemed more his Stranger’s purview than his own. Perhaps in a few hundred more years.

    Pity, then, that the supernatural came to him.

    Summary

    Dream huffed. “Daunt. Distress. Discourage. Burden.” You turned to him with a growl. “Your purpose means little in the presence of an Endless.”

    You mocked him with a halfhearted bow. “Go on then, Prince of Stories, save your dreamer from my evil clutches.”

    Whether he did so or not mattered little to you as you turned from him and moved onto the next and the next and the next. The call of those inspired voices leading you forward until you left none but frustrated cries of discourse behind you. If the Dream Lord wanted for you to be a burden then you would see his wish granted.

    (This concept came from an anonymous ask from my tumblr and turned into a mini-series)

    Summary

    Like many tales, it starts like this:
    Dream falls in lust with an older man across the pub.

    Like others, it almost ends like this:
    Hob stumbles in to give his first lecture of the semester, shocked to find the man he's already half in love with in the back row.

    Summary

    The grimoire Burgess uses to trap Dream contains a more sinister secret, something that will strip power and essence from the Endless. Dream's sibling must bear witness to his suffering but are unable to help by the old laws and the magic of his prison. As he loses bits of himself, Dream finds it harder and harder to pull himself back together again. His only hope? The human he scorned in 1889.

    Hob is having terrible dreams all seemingly centering around his Stranger and the need to find him. Except he has no place to start and the journey may change him forever.

    Or a retelling of season one episodes 1-5, where both Roderick and Alex Burgess are worse, Dream loses and finds Hope, and Hob saves Dream from the cellar and more, and the Endless ship Dreamling.

    Summary

    Once again, Dream makes himself stop. Hob is not coming for him, and that is Dream’s fault, something that he can admit only here, in the cold privacy of his own head, because there is no danger of ever having to say it out loud. Perhaps if he had handled matters differently, if he had not ruined that relationship as he has with every other creature he has dared to love, then there might be a chance of rescue from that front. But there is not. Hob is angry at him – furious – and he has good reason to be. When Dream does not appear, Hob will logically conclude that it is over between them, that Dream has disdained and forgotten him, and return to his own life. The thought causes Morpheus more pain than he ever thought possible, but he viciously shakes it away. He cannot let himself break, cannot give into sentimental maundering when the peril of his present situation remains so acute. He schools his face into withering disdain and stares at Roderick Burgess, unblinking.

    At last, Burgess breaks the gaze. His resolve, however, is undimmed. “Fine, Dream of the Endless. Play your games, throw your childish fits, however long it pleases you to do so. But in the end, as I told you, I will have the victory.”

    Summary

    The first time he had ever clapped eyes on Morpheus Endelas, son of Lord Chronos Endelas, Hob knew the man was no soldier. He had floated through the camp, his feet barely brushing against the dry leaves, his head held high and haughty. There had been a massive red jewel around his neck and a white-breasted raven perched on his shoulder, equally lordly, if a bird could ever be described as such. Hob had simply rolled his eyes. He didn’t know why Lordling Endelas was parading through their camp, but it was also above his pay grade. He was just a first lieutenant, practically still rolling around in the mud with the common soldiers. So he had shrugged and rolled his eyes some more, right up until someone helpfully informed him that Morpheus Endelas was their new Captain. And then he had started reconciling his relationship with God, because the Lordling was sure to get them all killed.

    Summary

    The war was over.
    They had won.
    It was finally over.
    But Hob knew that at the moment they stepped into London, Dream's family would descend upon them like vultures and try to seperate them. No problem, though, Hob fought four years in the war. The Endeles family would not take Dream way from him.

    Or, the fic where Dream and Hob elope, get married in Ireland, get adopted by an old lady and adopt Gilbert, Corithian and Gault. Enjoy.

    Summary

    “Sir! Sir!” There is a loud call from down the street and Hob stands to peer into the night. This street is not known for its late night callers. The slight man looks ill put together and his steps are slow and uncertain. “Sir Robert Gadlen?” And that was something, for the caller to be after him.
    “Aye, who asks?” Hob doesn’t have his sword but he never needed one in the past and this figure can barely stand.
    “Tis Will Shaxberd,” the man replies, stumbling further. “I- your friend-”
    Hob is down the street before the man even takes another step. “What of him? What did you do to him?”
    The playwright shakes his head and it looks like he immediately regrets it. “Men, they came and took him."

    --
    Or Dream gets captured by people who would do him harm in 1589 and Hob Gadling and Eleanor need to save him.

    Summary

    Morpheus creates you, a Dream that inspires passion in humanity for their daily tasks and helps them discover what they want in life. He names you Mera, derived from the Greek word ‘meraki,’ meaning ‘to do something with passion, with absolute devotion, with undivided attention.’ Perhaps it’s you, his own creation, who inspires him, for he realizes his true want for companionship, and it’s you he decides to fulfill that need. So, what if, after his capture for more than a century, he finds you in love with a mortal and hears of your plans to run away from the Dreaming, from him, forever?

    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.
