    Summary

    He was almost grateful he couldn’t speak because he wasn’t sure what he would say to that; after the medieval times, the Inquisition and the persecution of people the Church believed were witches, Hob never thought he would be harassed for his immortality again. Of course he knew he couldn’t just outright tell people about it or stay in the same place long enough for people to realize he didn’t age, but he wasn’t as scared anymore. Perhaps he had been too naïve to believe that.

    I’m perfectly safe. I can’t die, remember?

    Aye. But you can be hurt or captured. We must be cautious.

    And oh, how right had his Stranger been at the time. Sure, it took 200 years for it to happen but Hob thought he ought to have listened to him; maybe he wouldn’t be in this situation if he had.

     

    *

    What if Hob had been kidnapped? And, even so, had the opportunity to free Dream from the Burgess' estate?

    Morpheus is supposed to die. The Kindly Ones demand it. This has always been the ending.

    Until it isn't.

    Or, Death gives Morpheus a boon — or is it a curse? Morpheus finds himself alive but achingly human, there is a new Dream of the Endless, and Hob Gadling has volunteered to be his roommate for the unforeseeable future.

    Summary

    “It’s too bad you’re not secretly some rich fuck, laddie,” Seamus mused with his chin in his hand, “You could always just buy the place yourself, or build your own.”
    Hob sat up so suddenly the barstool wobbled like the lip of a preschooler. The world only spun a little as he pointed a semi dramatic finger at Old Seamus. “That’s it Seamus, old chap! I’ll just buy the place!” Seamus of course only chuckled at him.
    “Oh aye? With what, the vast wealth you’ve accumulated over an immortal lifetime? Yer drunk, boy.”

    Summary

    In 1989, Hob Gadling nurses a drink in The White Horse, hoping his Stranger will walk through those doors one more. He’s ready to apologise for 1889, for pushing too far, despite the hurt that still stings whenever he thinks about that day a little too hard.

    In 1989, Death comes to a decision. Her brother has suffered for too long. Though she is bound by ancient rules, unable to intervene, she knows of somebody who isn’t and hopes he will be willing to save her dear brother from Fawney Rig, and she finds him waiting once more at The White Horse.

    A week later, Hob Gadling saves Dream of the Endless from his prison of glass and iron, and the two navigate the troublesome waters of friendship and healing.

    Summary

    It's 2022 and Hob's got his Stranger back in his life. His Stranger, who's now his friend and who drops by more than once a century. Bloody fantastic, if you ask him.

    Though of course, it doesn't last. Dream disappears again; this time to fight the hordes of Hell that have invaded the Dreaming.

    Hob could just sit this one out, but hey- That doesn't sound much like him, does it? So he does what any sensible bloke would do, not that he's ever been one: sneaking into the Dreaming, hell-bent on fighting this war on Dream's side, where he belongs.

    As Shaxberd once said, 'What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet'

    Summary

    It has had many names over the years - Melancholia is the one he is most familiar with, but Depression is the modern day term.

    Hob Gadling had hoped that for once, he would escape its clutches after his centennial visit from his stranger (now friend). Especially with the promise of another visit much sooner than one hundred years.

    However, he's not that lucky - but this time, he has something he did not have before. A friend, who is not willing to be driven away.

    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

    “Are you ready for death then?” His stranger asked with something like resignation clipping the end of each lilting word.

    It was then he looked up, taking in the last face he would behold in this life.

    Colors seemed so long ago, too long ago to remember clearly, but here they were, sitting before him. His stranger, Death, sat glowing in the fire light like a burning sun. Black and grey, with white pure skin, a ruby of blood blazed at his breast, and eyes that gleamed like living sapphires so vibrant Hob could barely maintain eye contact as he nodded an affirmative.

    Or

    The one where Hob chose to die in 1689 and joined Morpheus in the Dreaming, commencing one hundred years of slow burn.

    Summary

    Magnus Bane receives orders to investigate what is a trapped warlock (or something demonic) in the basement of one Roderick Burgess. He isn't expecting to come across two creatures already planning a rescue of said captive. Even more than that - he isn't expecting the captive to be an Endless, of all things.

    -

    Hob Gadling, when a talking raven (named Jessamy) shows up to tell him that his oldest friend has been captured and needs his help, isn't expecting to get plunged into a world of magical beings, time travel, and more than his fair share of violence, but. For his Stranger? He would do anything.
