    Summary

    After initially dismissing an oddity in the Dreaming, over the years Morpheus gets to know his unusual visitor.

    Chapter 1 tease:
    “Since my return to the Dreaming and the rebuilding of it, there has been something amiss. I thought it was simply the realm resettling.” He pointed across the river. “It’s her.”

    “Another vortex?” Lucienne asked, alarmed.

    “No,” Dream replied. He was intrigued. “Something else. Something new.”

     

    Sloooooooow burn (seriously takes years so she can grow up) story of strangers to friends to lovers. Time warped but somewhat follows the comics so SPOILERS!

    Summary

    The rite was done and as he flashed the athame and spoke the Word the last time, the one that had taken the longest effort and the one that had been done in secret in the midst of witch-hunts when by sheer law of averages they'd actually caught a legitimate witch (who he'd let go and had watched impartially as she massacred so many of the troops in his own unit at the time) he was prepared to face his Stranger, who of all people would understand. He was his closest....friend, if not a great deal more.

    He had spoken an incantation for the one who had made him immortal, who could restore his family (though he did not specify this part). Light flashed and then a being fell through with great dark wings that towered out, pushed up by the power of the circle until the flight feathers brushed the roof of his house. The being that fell before him he saw as immortals did, and it was not the dark-skinned woman he'd seen with his stranger then, even if the features were broadly similar. Her skin was bone-hued and her shape was somewhat younger and yet much more ancient, eldritch, even.

    "In the name of God," he exhaled in shock.

    "You are not my Stranger. Who the Hell are you?"

    Summary

    Desire has little tolerance for their brother Dream, but when he finally pushes them over the edge, they have to call in help from a certain party they haven't seen in a very long time.

    Unfortunately, that party is the Corinthian, and it doesn't take long for the pair to notice that their end goals are very different.

    Summary

    "The Endless," spoke her brother in his white suit, fingers running through his white hair, "aren't real, Persephone. They never were. It's a story, a myth. Like the idea of Chronos and Nyx in Greek myth. We know the Olympians and the Titans and all that exist, in a way. Paradise Island, after all, says that much. The Endless are just a just-so story."

    "No," Death said, as she held up her hands. "I know they're real."

    Daniel Hall shook his head. "Persephone, you've had this belief for a long time." His stare was a hooded one. "None of it is real. You do have your powers, but after the scenes in Metropolis I'd think that would reinforce what you really need."

    He leaned forward slightly and for a moment she caught a faint glimpse of white hair that seemed blond in the right angle and a horridly familiar smile.

    "That's one thing that's good about this city. They're good with metahuman patients. They'll teach you that control."

    Summary

    “Y/N.” He whispers softly, causing you to meet his gaze with your watery ones.
    He may very well never see you again so he says his final farewell.
    “Goodbye little soulmate.” He says tenderly, seeing the realization on your face.
    Your grip on him slackens in your surprise and Death takes the opportunity to use his magic, the hands of his reaper form appearing and grabbing you by the shoulders, shoving you away from him and the Corruption as he fully sinks into the door. The last thing he hears is you screaming his name.
    -
    Don’t you just hate it when your friend doesn’t listen to you, reads from a weird old book and you end up on an entirely different Earth. Let’s not forget that you’ve been dropped onto an Earth minutes away from the Apocalypse happening. Even with all of this happening to you, you still find it within yourself to do something potentially stupid when you leave the safety of the church to help a stranger that you thought was a fellow human being. But here’s the real kicker, turns out you’re stuck in a videogame and you have no idea if you’ll be able to go back home. Now you’re stuck, having a Horseman of the Apocalypse, his horse and his crow as your travel companions.

    Summary

    "And what do you ask of me?" She asks and she is in pain. What does she ask of her? What would she ask of Dream if she let herself imagine?

    There are too many answers for that question. She would ask for friendship. She would ask for care, but not for herself. She would ask her friend to take better care of herself, to love herself more. She would ask for her to see herself the same as she does.

    Hob would ask her for love.

    She can feel herself waking up, this dreamy reality escaping through her fingers as she keeps breathing into Dream's neck. They have been static for a while now, long enough that the music has stopped and the guests are wondering what is happening. Long enough for Hob's heart to feel like stopping.

    "Anything you would let me. I would ask anything as long as you would let me." She whispers, shaking. On her waist, Dream's hand tightens, trying to stop her from disappearing. Her eyes are closed against her neck, keeping the tears at bay, and her heart is thrashing, wanting to break free.

    "Hob..." Dream starts and that's all that her heart can take.

     

    or, the fic where Hob and Dream dance and talk about their feelings.

    Summary

    Tension is good - necessary, even - on a stage. It's less good in a relationship.

    Calliope wants Dream's help. Dream wants to make amends. Hob doesn't want to be a burden.

    The sequel to "That Which Constitutes Poetic Faith," in which Morpheus is a prolific theatre director and Hob is a stagehand.

    Summary

     A glint of confusion flashes in your gaze. But it’s been so so long and Desire cannot help the soft smile that graces their face.
    Of course you don’t understand, it doesn’t make sense at all, even to them! It’s impossible, and yet…

    Their brows twitch in an attempt to explain. But how does one explain so much.

    Impatience and a dash of anger lingers in your voice when you speak again.
     

    “Who are you?”

    Summary

    The entity in the dome looked around her at the fog that had appeared there. Roderick Burgess had seen the fog, had heard....something from it that was best left alone. Those strange eyes like literal pools of darkness gazed at them and then Burgess saw something both awed and and horrified him. The wings had changed long ago, the eyes were pools of liquid darkness. Those were things he'd become inured to. The fog that held the monster in the sphere in that damnation aided by its own sibling becoming ice and then seeming to wither into nothing.....that he was not prepared to witness.

    Masses of darkness in the loose shape of wings, the dark hair turned half-white, these were things he could perceive. For a moment she seemed to take an unnatural bone-hue and then it faded. The being turned to him and then her lips parted in an unnaturally wide grin as a sound echoed that would haunt him for the rest of the long and painful life which took its first steps within the dome. Laughter, rasping and echoing with a booming sound that would sear the hearts of those who heard it.

    Summary

    You closed your eyes again as your breathing sped up. 'Please don't,' you thought. 'Please make it stop.' You gagged when something blunt and thick pressed against you, then everything went still. It was an unnatural stillness, accompanied by a preternatural silence interrupted only by your quick breathing, until someone suddenly spoke.

    "Enough."

    Summary

    He turned his gaze her way. Saw her mouth quirk up in a smile, “you brought me here to listen to complete lunacy. Why would a man want any more of this then he is cursed to endure?”

    “You could find out,” she said absently. “You could embrace him.”

    “I would not embrace a childe I have not personally vetted,” he only barely kept the disgust from his voice. “And he would not live as they did, if the beast does not overtake him then his neighbor will surely stake him and leave his body out for the next sunrise. His final death will come in a matter of days after his embrace.”

    She hummed under her breath, “but how would you know that for certain?”

    “Because I am not a fool.”

    “Or perhaps you are,” she challenged, “perhaps he will thrive as a kindred even separate from us. Perhaps being around them will save him from the conflicts so many kindred seem to revel in. I could embrace him, and you could watch him.”

    “He won’t survive the century. He will be a dog in a dress.”

    “Prove it.”
