    That Endless was in for an unexpected surprise that might provide hope for a new beautiful friendship.

    Summary

    She found herself stopping in her garden, looking at her brother as he was doing one of those things like vomit on a canvas he called a painting.

    "Fuck."

    He turned his head to her.

    "I can feel it, Des."

    She laughed uneasily. "I can feel my sphere again. Our dear brother had another Helm incident and this one must be worse."

    Summary

    She knelt in front of Dream of the Endless, her wings like great dark shadows lit by a fell starlight.

    "You lied to me, my creator."

    Her dark hands brushed his face.

    "Let me think I was one of you, all of you did. Was there ever a real being called Death? Or was it just another lie?"

    She looked at the wards that held her creator. They were shabby things, ones that could be easily broken by just a set of motions, and nodded, standing up to look at Burgess.

    Summary

    TW: PLEASE CHECK THE TAGS

    1891

    Hob Gadling realises he wants to apologise to his stranger just a few years too late.

    He shouldn't have doubled down on what he said, as now he has probably lost any hope he had of ever becoming his friend. But he refuses to let that be the last time they meet, he has to find a way to say he is sorry and maybe even fix this mess.

    So he does something he has never done before, not in all his centuries.

    He begins to search for his stranger...

    Summary

    Two events take place on the same fatidic evening of June 1916.
    One, Dream of the Endless goes into the Waking world searching for a wayward nightmare and ends up captured by a magic patrictioner called Roderick Burgess.
    Two, Robert Gadling wakes up to a stake in his chest courtesy of the descendant of a certain Lady who once tried to kidnap him (and his Stranger too).
    Both events prove life changing.

    Summary

    She had thought that she would have children and that it would make things better. All it had done was make things worse, make life harder for her and the bitterness over the way her Issues, as she called her depression, made it harder to be there for her children led to vicious spirals. Nor did it help that she became frankly jealous of the way that their eldest daughter did things that she wanted to do. He'd found her cringing in a corner with Night yelling at her, staring into space the way she did. He'd pulled his wife aside and they'd had a very sharp talk alone and when they returned they found their eldest daughter seemingly as if nothing had happened, looking after her siblings.

    "See?"

    Night had turned to him then with her hands on her hips.

    "The girl's fine. She's just fine."

    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

    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

    After banishing his lover to the waking world for her deception, Morpheus learns that she's been captured by a revenge-seeking Alexander Burgess.

    She's also very pregnant with his child.

    Neither of these things lend much to the possibility of a happy ending.

    Summary

    "This one is a special case," Burgess says. "He is a war hero. Do you understand? You will be on your best behavior. You know what happens when you are not."

    Two years into his imprisonment, and Dream of the Endless has not given Roderick Burgess what he wants. Yet if he cannot have back his son, then he will have whatever else Dream has to give, and sell it to the highest bidder: body, powers, and all.

    Hob Gadling, newly back from the Western Front, has barely slept since 1889, and is desperate for any sort of relief, even that peddled by mad old men claiming to be warlocks.

    Summary

    Hob Gadling - Robbie Grayson currently- had a meeting that was missed. Truth be told, he wasn't going to accept that his friend/not-friend would miss the meeting because of a petty belief that he didn't need friends, so he was going to track him down and tell him how much of an idiot he was.

    Just so happened, Hob was now in the business of finding and selling mystical artefacts which led him to the doors of the Burgess Manor because of a rumour of something powerful in their basement.

    Summary

    A love story between two beings who have all the time in the world, and yet nowhere near enough. A dive into how Hob Gadling and Dream of the Endless fell for each other, from their 1789 meeting through the present (and beyond…), and in which Dream breaks their 100-years pact before their pact is broken for them. Because Hob was right: Dream is lonely.

    Summary

    “I heard a rumor,” Mona purrs, elbows bracketing the steaming tea mug in front of her, delicate chin propped on her knuckles. “About a certain Roderick Burgess.”

    “Oh?” Hob picks up his cup of Earl Grey from the counter, taking a sip. “What might that be?”

    “Apparently, he’s captured Death,” she replies as Hob chokes on his tea.

    ----

    (Hob attempts to save Dream from the fishbowl. It doesn't quite go as planned - with dire consequences.)

    Summary

    “If you wish your brother freed, Angel, then there is a simple means to do so. Take his position. You see that I have his tools. He will regain freedom and in return I hold captive the one I wanted in the first place.”

    Death nodded and her brother’s shock mirrored Burgess’s triumph.

    Summary

    The grimoire Burgess uses to trap Dream contains a more sinister secret, something that will strip power and essence from the Endless. Dream's sibling must bear witness to his suffering but are unable to help by the old laws and the magic of his prison. As he loses bits of himself, Dream finds it harder and harder to pull himself back together again. His only hope? The human he scorned in 1889.

    Hob is having terrible dreams all seemingly centering around his Stranger and the need to find him. Except he has no place to start and the journey may change him forever.

    Or a retelling of season one where both Roderick and Alex Burgess are worse, Dream loses and finds Hope, and Hob saves Dream from the cellar and more, and the Endless ship Dreamling.

    When Hob takes too long to realize the truth, he makes the wrong choice with disastrous consequences for everyone.
