    Summary

    “What would you ask of me?”

    “I found your instructions.” In the distance, bells ring. Hob speaks over the noise, over the dark storm clouds now pouring rain above them, falling loud over the thin ceiling of the tavern. “For what to do if – if everything went to shit.”

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

    Or, memories are echoes, Dream doesn’t make promises he can’t keep, and Hob makes a trade with a demon.

    (Alternatively: five times Hob uses an instrument (of sorts), plus one time Hob teaches Dream.)

    Summary

    George’s dreams go like this:

    Dream is downstairs, because he’s always been an early riser and usually doesn’t get enough sleep anyways. The wooden floor upstairs is warm because he’s lit the fireplace. Dream offers him a cup of coffee in a mug from their ‘stupid mugs’ collection. George takes it because even if he hates the taste, he hates feeling tired more. Dream is fuzzy and soft at the edges like an old woolen blanket, pulled from the deepest, earliest but faded memories George has of him. The color of Dream’s jacket has long faded away, replaced with the after images of rustling tree leaves and fields of summer grass reflected onto the fabric. His face is completely distorted. Gone. A forgotten memory.

    “How did you sleep?” Dream will ask him, and his voice is distorted too, like he’s trying to talk to George from chunks away despite standing right next to him.

    George’s dreams end like this:

    He wakes up in a double bed meant for two, alone.

    Summary

    "No amount of feeling would bring Rogier back.”

    “There is a way to bring him back.”

    “What do you mean? Is this related to what you said before—that he’s ‘beyond’ the Erdtree?”

    “Yes, because he spent so long straddling the world between here and death there is something like a bridge yet that could be traveled, if someone were willing to do so.”

    Summary

    She wakes up to see red. Red everywhere. Initially, she isn't certain if it's the world around her or the blood that was pooling under her eyelids, running on her cheeks. It's her last memory, so much red, so much blood, so much pain. White, the noise all her bones did when they break, red, the blood running on her skin, and black, finally, the softness and the calm of what is supposed to be her last rest.

     

    A lie, it seems, since she opened her eyes.

     

    Chrissy dies to find herself in a new cage. Since death didn't do the trick, maybe she's the only one who can free herself.

    Summary

    Eddie should be dead. He’s pretty sure he was, actually. He’s got the scars to prove it. So waking up in the Upside Down seems like kind of a shitty joke, and it just keeps getting shittier—until he finds Chrissy Cunningham. She should be dead too. Like, dead-dead. He saw the body, okay?

    But here they both are, trapped in the shadow-side of Hawkins, and they’ll need to work together to find a way out. Because judging by those fiery gates, something has gone very, very wrong back home.

    This isn’t quite what Eddie had in mind when he’d been trying to figure out a way to get her to hang out again—you know, mere minutes before both their lives went well and truly to hell—but he’ll take a silver lining if he can get it.

    Summary

    After Dream merged with DreamXD, he disappeared into the Nether taking GeorgeNotFound with him. A series of wars broke out, destroying almost everything in it's wake. The wars took many lives including Phil, Ranboo, Technoblade and many more. Each person to die was faced with two choices; stay in the Void or go back to the Above as a ghost. So Tommy, who'd committed suicide was given a second chance. Only catch is he remembers nothing and no one from his life before. What will come of his new outlook? Can he save L'manburg from the brutal winters caused by GeorgeNotFound's progressively extended leaves in the Nether.

    Summary

    Eddie has wandered in this hellish place for what seems an eternity already, his reason to live strapped on his chest: he has still at least twice the road to do, wobbly as he is on his two wounded feet. Two eternities, longer from where he stands than the lifespan of a star, and his fingers are raw on the strings of his guitar, and his voice is probably irremediably broken. He still singing though, still playing, like some old and used music box repeating a melody about green eyes and a pretty smile. He has hair full of ashes falling on his eyes, the raspy voice of a heavy smoker, more blood on his hands than skin. Every step is a knife in his heels. But he is singing, as music is part of him now, like the pain, and he is not sure he is capable to differentiate them anymore, melted as they are under his flesh.

     

    Eddie has loved Chrissy for so long that he isn't convinced he can live without her. Good thing he is already dead.

    Or, Eddie takes his guitar and sings his path through both the Upside Down and his memories.

    Summary

    “Did you know,” she began, “if you played with my hair, I would fall in love with you,” she took her lover’s intertwined fingers and lay her head on her lap. “like it’s the first time all over again,” she quickly added.

    “It is tangled.” she stated absentmindedly. Having her hand in her girlfriend’s hair was like touching the ripples in the river.

    “Then untangle it.” Was it really that simple?

    You nod. “If being dead means that I’m better.”

    Summary

    Steve’s being hunted, it feels like. Something’s following him. It’s right behind him but just far off enough that he can’t swipe at it or point it out to anybody. It’s keeping him from sleeping through the night. It’s making him look over his shoulder and under his bed. It’s ahead of him, pulling him in like a chain being wound up. It’s a song.
