    Summary

    “A lot happens in a hundred years...”
    Hob’s words were nearly lost within the hustle and bustle of the busy pub, yet their implication hung heavy in the air. It had been over a hundred years since he had last met his Stranger Dream. His friend had, by no fault of his own, missed their appointment in 1989, and whilst the immortal wouldn’t dare imply any more that the Lord of Dreams was lonely, the same did not apply to himself. He loved life, even after more than 600 years, but he craved the comfort of consistency the other offered… and perhaps more. He could not deny enjoying their meetings. The mystery of his Stranger was exciting, but the stars in his eyes, the way he tried to hide his smiles, and the way he teased the human for his humours was what made Hob count down the years until their next meeting.
    “A month, then?”
    A month. A month! The immortal had always been an optimist, allowing his hopes to fly free, and yet he hadn’t dared to wish for a month. 80 years, maybe even 50 years, but a month?
    “That would be nice!”, Hob gleamed at his Dream.

     

    Or a post-canon (I havent read the comics) dream of how Hob and Morpheus get together.

    Summary

    I am writing to tell you that I am not writing to you. That would be not allowed, and Destiny has told me that I shouldn’t. But Destruction says it would be mad to try, and that Dream will be mad if I do, so that seems alright by me.

     

    It is 1977, and Hob gets a letter. The predictable ensues.

    Summary

    “He is not my dream man, he is simply a man who I keep seeing in my dreams, there’s a difference.”

    Or: of course the anthropomorphic personification of your dream man is tall and pale and dressed all in black with the emotional range of a teaspoon. You’re so bloody predictable.

    Summary

    “Oh, you don’t think dreams can die?” Corinthian asked. His smirk grew wider. “Let’s find out!”

    And with that, he lunged.

    ~

    Did Hob Gadling, resident immortal and Shakespeare Cynic Extraordinaire, expect to be dive-bombed by a talking raven halfway through his usual evening card game with his colleagues and friends from the local university on a, by all accounts, relatively normal Thursday? No. No he did not.

    'Spontaneously popping off to America to perform an urgent search and rescue for an eldritch being who might possibly hate me' had, perhaps surprisingly, never been at the top of his to-do list. Ever.

    It was a good thing he had a clear schedule.
