    Summary

    “Come on,” Hob decides, standing. “There’s something I want to show you.”

    The sand from the floor rises up with them, dissolving their glasses and half-finished wine. Hob doesn’t ask where it goes, doesn’t wonder which dreamer will get a gift of love-stained bottles.

    It will be time lost, and love gained, and life cherished for Hob.

    -----------------

    Or, it’s 2189, and Morpheus meets Hob in a starship.

    Summary

    “He does not wish your friendship, Hob Gadling. He wishes to bed you.”

    “He–” Hob cuts himself off, head tilting slightly like the new information needs just a second to process. Dream wonders when he began to find this kind of confusion more endearing than a test of his patience.

    In which Dream begins to feel things and it goes about as well as you would expect.

    Summary

    Attraction to Dream of the Endless comes to Hob in a form of a slow, simmering fire. At times it burns brighter, other times it calms until it’s barely noticeable. It never goes away fully, partially because Hob doesn’t want it to.

    His companion is the embodiment of hope and dreaming. It would be sacrilege to give up hope in being wanted by him.

     

    _____
    Death comes for a raven, and finds her brother. He doesn't ask her for help, but prevents her possible entrapment, so she finds Hob Gadling and suggests he do something about the situation at hand.
    Cue a one man resque mission in 1926, which leads to dozens of years of platonic, yet vaguely romantic dating both in the waking world and in the Dreaming.

    Now with illustrations in the second chapter!
