    Summary

    “You would worship me then, Hob Gadling?” Dream demands as Hob's lips ghost over the pale bumps of his ribs.
    Hob grins. [...]
    “No, love, I wouldn't.”

     

    Look, I'm all for starstruck Hob falling on his knees at Dream's feet. But what if he didn't?

    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

    Hob has never been interested in finding out who his Stranger is, not when it would ruin the anticipation of waiting for him to tell him himself, but after he disappears he can’t help but worry enough to begin to put out feelers. Even if he had missed their meeting out of petty spite, Hob needed to know for sure, and he was prepared to suffer through another tense argument if that's what it takes to know his friend is safe.

    He was not expecting to be kidnapped by a cult worshiping someone called the King Of Dreams, strapped to a table to be sacrificed, and then promptly declared their leader when they found out he couldn’t die.

    Oh, and apparently he’s now in charge of a rescue mission.

    Summary

    "The Kindly Ones seek to destroy me. To have me unmade."

    "And unmade you shall become," His sister's voice is now the voices of many. A thousand men, a thousand women, a thousand children: in all their happy, tumultuous life. All in their agony, accepting, silent end. The true power of Death devastates; even Morpheus could not help from bowing, just a little. "Live. Not as Dream, not as an Endless. But do not choose Death, my brother. Do not choose me."

    At this, her voice turns softer; the light in her eyes dim to give away to the normal amount of chocolate and galaxy she is used to presenting her corporeal being with. She shakes her head, "Not like this."

    Or, Death gives Morpheus a boon — or is it a curse? Morpheus finds himself alive from The Fates' hands, but achingly human. There is a new Dream of the Endless. Hob Gadling, in the meantime, gets used to his new roommate.

    Summary

    The Dreaming was in lockdown, all gates shut against dreamers and visitors alike. Morpheus had judged that some time with dreamless sleep would benefit all creatures more than the possibility of walking unaware into a realm in conflict.

    Apparently it was that bad. Hob didn’t know, because Hob, the Regent of the Dreaming, had more urgent business to deal with.

     

    A sequel to The Uses of Adversity.

    This fic was almost titled: "How to train your anthropomorphic personification of a boyfriend into being slightly less of a prick everyone wants to punch in the face'

    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

    “You are late. I thought it was impolite to keep friends waiting?”
    “We’re not friends. We’re not… anything. You’ve made that perfectly clear.”

    Dream does not get fishbowled and does turn up for the 1989 meeting, only to find that Hob does not appear.
    Hob has not been not captured or detained; he just stands him up.
    Or -- what if Hob was a little less of a forgiving, patient cinnamon roll, and a little bit more of an OOC salty bitch and went ”you abandon me in the 1889, I will ghost you in 1989.”

    Heavily inspired by Cat People (Putting Out Fire) by David Bowie

    Summary

    Inspired by A Dream of a Thousand Cats and Hadestown, this time around with a happy ending because these two deserve it ffs.

    "The man with eyes of stars turns his gaze to Remus, tilting his head to the side as he appraises the pitiful creature "The strength of your bond has tethered your lost man to my lands, wolf, so that you could meet him in your sleep… You wish for more, but that’s not easily given.”
