    Summary

    Gil-Galad hums. “I am glad you decided to visit tonight. Would you like to try him?”
    Elrond’s breath hitches in his chest.
    Celebrimbor cocks his head, puzzled. “I am sure I will have ample opportunity to test his capabilities on the mission, Ereinion.”
    “Dear Celebrimbor, I had been hoping you would play with me in bed tonight. I have missed you. And Elrond could join us. I am sure he will not object.”
    Gil-Galad shifts in his seat and the jostle to Elrond’s body makes him hitch in a sharp, pained sort of sound, and it’s then that Celebrimbor realizes: Ereinion is sheathed inside his herald.

     

    Gil-Galad offers Celebrimbor a taste of his herald. Celebrimbor accepts, and regrets it.

    This is turning out to have a Plot which I didn't intend but I just can't leave well enough alone.

    Summary

    “You are not unremarkable, Hob Gadling.”

     

    Hob’s taken aback by the sincerity of the statement. He stares back at Dream, then huffs out a quiet laugh. Dream’s eyes turn warmer, and he gives Hob his signature little smirk in return.

    ***

    In which Dream has explained Hob his identity and comes for a visit with unexpected consequences.

    Summary

    There’s not much use thinking about those times, anymore. He will always be Hob Gadling, but the biggest part of what that used to entail had stormed away on a rainy night like this one hundred and thirty years ago, and hadn’t come back.

    Hob remembers the ache in his chest in 1989. He remembers the glow of the pub, so much warmer than the pale light cutting across the alley now. He remembers staring at that empty chair for hours—first with anxiety, then with concern, and eventually with bitterness.

    “You dare suggest one such as I might need your companionship.”

    Hob had dared, and he’d paid for it.

    He’d walked out of that pub in 1989 and not looked back.

    It's 2020, and Hob Gadling is old, tired, and bitter, dancing the waltz of London's underground black market. Word has spread about something from the Burgess Estate going to auction, and who is Hob to deny himself and his team the opportunity to get their hands on it?

    Summary

    “I heard a rumor,” Mona purrs, elbows bracketing the steaming tea mug in front of her, delicate chin propped on her knuckles. “About a certain Roderick Burgess.”

    “Oh?” Hob picks up his cup of Earl Grey from the counter, taking a sip. “What might that be?”

    “Apparently, he’s captured Death,” she replies as Hob chokes on his tea.

    ----

    Or: another "Hob tries to save Dream from the fishbowl" story. With a bit of a twist.
