    Summary

    “I’ve been having dreams again,” Gwen said while attempting to haul their unconscious father out of the bathtub.

    He was fully clothed, thankfully, but he had taken to spending his withdrawal episodes locked in their shared bathroom where he could curse and scream, vomit and piss his pants without catching his children in the crosshairs. For the most part it worked, but it left them with the disadvantage of needing to go to the neighbor's house or behind the bushes whenever they needed to pee.

    “What kind of dreams?” Finney asked, lifting his father from beneath his arms while Gwen grabbed hold of his legs. They were both a little bit older now with Finney just shy of his fourteenth birthday. As for Gwen, she was proud to have started her period last month, and with it came more dreams and startlingly accurate intuition. Sometimes it felt as though she was reading Finney's mind. Other times it was like Gwen thought so loudly you couldn’t help but overhear her.

    Or,

    Finney and Gwen have got the shining, the Grabber continues to haunt and Danny Torrance is here to help

    Summary

    After a hundred and thirty years, Hob couldn't say he'd actually been expecting to have his old companion show up for a visit and a pint.

    But it wasn't only an old friendship made new that showed up at his door.

    Summary

    What led Hob Gadling — at the time known as Robert Stranger, because he’d been in a permanent state of pettiness from 1889 to about 1904 and now he was stuck with it — to the dank, cold, and dark basement of the Burgess house on March of 1957 was not so much coincidence or fate as it was curiosity.

    Yeah. Cats isn’t the only thing it kills.

     

    Alright, wait. Back up. Let’s start from the beginning.

    It was 1957 and Hob Gadling was, by no action or choice of his own, sort of — it’s a bit embarrassing — a criminal master.

    Not mastermind! He hadn’t planned any of it. Honestly.

    Summary

    Hob has a bone to pick with (Dream of the Endless) and damn if he isn't going to find the bastard to have it out.
    ~*~
    The White Horse Inn is officially condemned in 2009 and Hob, twenty years after being stood up, decides that he's not going to let that be the last word.
    ~*~
    Or, ten years before Paul Maguire either finally loses his nerve (or gains it, perhaps), Hob Gadling and Johanna Constantine become unlikely partners on a seemingly ill-fated search for an immortal man who never actually gave his only friend his name.
