    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 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

    In this universe, a twisted change of events occurred...
    Roderick Burgess did not die by his son's hands, instead Alex left along a pregnant Ethel. But despite being around an Endless prolonged the Magus' life, all things come to an end, and he soon left. Abandoning the anthromophic personification of dreams trapped in the darkness, with his scars and thoughts.

    The darkness of this dungeon takes not just the vibrance of his kingdom. Dream knows it's not just the glass that broke in the span of one hundred years.

    Summary

    Sarah never thought herself to be particularly special. She was special in the ways many other people were special. She liked to sing and to read and dance. The day her life took a sharp turn wasn´t extraordinary either at first. Just another rainy day catching a bus to the university... or was it ?

    Summary

    When Hob Gadling is left in the rain outside the White Horse tavern in 1889, he's forced to reckon with his true feelings for the mysterious being that left him there.

    When Dream of the Endless escapes his prison, he finds himself powerless and unable to return to his domain.

    A dream can act like a beacon in a storm, and soon Hob finds himself facing down the sources of his feelings much sooner, and in much more dire circumstances, than he ever thought he would.

    or, Dream escapes Fawney Rig but ends up at Hob's place instead of his own.

    Summary

    The steps ring like bells with each foot he forces in front of himself, and for Dream, they are the tolling of a funeral. A knell that rings hollow, and cracks open the stone of his chest like a geode to reveal the cragged remnants of his heart within.

    He has been climbing for three days.

    It has been four days since Hob Gadling chose death.

    After Hob sacrifices himself to the Fates in Dream's stead, the Dreamlord ascends the steps of the Silver City to demand the return of his soul.

    Summary

    "You get life, and breath, a world to walk and a path through the world--and the free will to wander the world as you choose."

     

    It turns out that Selene's life was a lot more complicated than dabbling in the mystical arts and stealing for a living. An old estate diary leads her to a cross roads that will take her on a journey of discovery and perhaps become a pawn between old jealousies of the Endless.

    Summary

    Twenty Years Ago, Dream Endless, third child of Time and Night Endless, went missing. Twenty years ago, he vanished without a trace. Twenty years ago, Dream Endless stopped speaking.

    Twenty years ago, no one looked for Dream Endless. They never did.

    That was Twenty Years Ago.

    He has barred all guests from visiting. Refused all calls. Locked deep in his room.

    Rookie Detectives Hector Hall and Johanna Constantine have been tasked with getting his statement.

    Summary

    “Hob.” The incessant voice continues. Nails on a chalk board; vexing and conniving. Can it not see he has a function to perform? That half a million souls below the confines of these walls yearn for his gentle touch? His embrace? A hand to guide them towards the threshold of salvation? “Hope!”

    “Do not bar me from my duty, husband!”

    Even in his present state, with an intransigent fire stoked in the pit of his belly, the sound of that voice, Hope’s voice, makes the part that is still so deeply human clasp a hand to his mouth in disbelief.

    Summary

    A child born in Hell was a terrible thing.

    “It is human nature to want, to be selfish. I feel it in each and every one of you, every day, this growing hunger for things you cannot have. This hunger is what makes me what I am,” Desire seethed, voice a poisoned honey in Nada’s ear. Blood loss made her dizzy, and Desire’s words pushed her ever closer to delirium. “But there is a bigger hunger in you. It ate the others the moment she was born.”

    The baby in Nada’s arms squirmed, a fussy mewl escaping her pouted lips, the first sound she had ever made. Sweeter than any music.

    “You would do anything for her, wouldn’t you, Nada?” Desire asked, though they already knew the answer. “You would deny your own desires in order to protect hers.”
    ...

    Alternatively: Deliverance has watched over the Dreaming in her father's absence, knowing the moment Dream returns to his realm, he will continue his ten-thousand-year-old hunt for her. When her carefully disguised path crosses with Dream's quest for his tools of office, father and daughter are forced not only to work together, but open wounds that could destroy the very fabric of the Waking World.

    Summary

    In 2022, Dream of the Endless pays an overdue visit to his old friend Hob Gadling. They go upstairs to Hob’s flat above the pub eventually, when the smiles have faded into stares, when the heat beneath Hob’s skin is too much to bear a moment longer. He has not asked the Stranger’s name; that is a bridge too far, and even after being called as Friend, he can’t bring himself to press. This is already so much more than he ever dared imagine…at least in waking hours.

    Now featuring everything it says on the tin plus a battle unicorn.
