    Summary

    Dream’s most recent client has not only plenty of money but also excellent taste, Corinthian has to give them that. He’s not much of a connoisseur himself, but this doesn’t mean he fails to notice if a drink is expensive, and this Hungarian import Sauska Brut is definitely one of a kind [...] and it tastes even better on Dream’s lips.

    Summary

    Dream does not unmake the Corinthian at the cereal convention, rather, he isolates him within the Dreaming until he can better decide what to do with him. His conclusion? That his nightmare needs a (perhaps not so) gentle reminder of his place, and of Dream's affections.

    Summary

    Before, Hob Gadling never believed he’d be unfortunate enough to love someone who’d never love him back. He’s never coughed up flowers before, and he’s willing to bet he never will.

    After 1789, Hob Gadling dreams of his Stranger, realises a few things about himself, and coughs up his first flower petal.

    ———

    [or: nobody talks about their feelings, Hob Gadling has been coughing up flowers for centuries and can’t speak properly after 1989, and it turns out communication is a vital part of a relationship. Who knew?]

    Summary

    There is a mouse in Hob Gadling's apartment.

    (Dream feels small, and dirty, and unwanted, and unloved, and unsafe. Sometimes his form reflects that.)
