    Summary

    Consider this a collection of stories, the ideas for which borrowed from the sandman himself!

    You know that part in the Cats/Calliope episode where Richard Madoc's flooded with ideas? Some of them were too good just to let him keep (aka all of them). He does not deserve those good ideas. They're mine now. Here's a lot of weird stories stolen from the sandman.

    Summary

    Prince Morpheus' magic has been in disarray for months. He cannot reconcile the two poles of his nature, Dream and Nightmare, and cannot control when and how they manifest. He is imprisoned in his father's castle and under the care of Dr. Roderick Burgess who is increasingly desperate to find a way to at least control Morpheus' magic if not to effect a cure.

    Hob just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Summary

    It is eleven in the morning. Hob had been asleep for nearly four hours, having only just finished prepping for the first half of Spring Term. It is Sunday. The immortal (?) is clad in a soft t-shirt, boxers, and a pair of multi-colored, pastel, fuzzy slippers. His hair is mussed and tangled, flatter on the right side than the left. He wasn't expecting company.

    With the bleary steps of a man who’s only just tumbled out of bed, Hob ambles through his apartment, from his bedroom, down the hall, and eventually to the front door. The banging has stopped.

    Summary

    Hob has messed up, really badly. His stranger hs stormed off into the rain, with no promise of his return this time.

    Hob will wait for him though. Just like he always does. Right here in this tavern.

    Well, that was the plan, until he mistakes someone to be the very stranger who just left him, and ends up finding an impossible blue Police Box, and it's even more impossible owner.

    Will it be adventure that awaits, or yet more loneliness?

    Summary

    Suffering from writer's block and broken from a bad relationship, children's book author and illustrator Dream retreats to the small, beachside town of New Haven.

    Summary

    After the disastrous 1889 meeting, Hob Gadling turned to the occult to find a way to contact his stranger and apologize. Yet despite becoming a fairly adept occultist in the process, Hob ultimately lost his nerve and never cast a single spell to contact Dream.

    Unfortunately, that was not the end of the matter, when Hob's dabbling brought him to the attention of Roderick Burgess, who is now convinced that Hob is a fellow Magus, capable of convincing Dream to give Burgess the gift he gave to Hob all those centuries ago: immortality.

    Now, Hob must use wits, magic, and a great deal of charm to convince Roderick Burgess he is indeed an ancient, powerful Magus who wants nothing more than to help Burgess become immortal too, if he is to get himself and Dream out of Fawney Rig.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, there was a thing that happened when you fell asleep called “Dreaming.” It was said that folk would lay down their heads and visit fantastical places, and it was strange and wonderful and sometimes frightening. Not anymore, though – they say something caught the Dream King, keeps him bound up in his castle, keeps the Gates of Horn and Ivory locked tight against those who would enter.

    Hob Gadling remembers the last dream he ever had when he was a boy; he remembers the strange man he met within it, and the war that already was consuming the Dreaming. Sometimes he thinks he would do anything to save that Dream King, if the stories happened to be true.

    One day, he just might.

    Thankfully (or not), he was not the only one who got sent back.
