    Summary

    Everyone knows that even the smallest actions - or inactions - can have the greatest of impacts. Paul Burgess, formerly McGuire, has a soul heavy with guilt for never helping the being in the basement. But he is also filled with both love and fear for his husband.

    Sometimes, love is the most destructive force of all.

    A wheel is never dragged through fresh paint. Dream is never given an opportunity to escape. Time passes, and passes, and passes, and so do those who held him captive.

    Eventually, his sibling comes to visit.

    Summary

    There are consequences to being caught in nightmares not your own, in the tormented memories of beings infinitely more powerful than you. Hob Gadling doesn't care. Nightmares can't kill him. And if this was ever real, he has no choice but to try and fight it now. To show ... to show his friend that he would have rescued him. If he'd known. He would have tried, no matter what it cost.

    Summary

    In 1689, Hob Gadling and Dream meet once more, after Hob has lost everything. That night, their meeting goes on longer than expected when the conversation turns to what it means to live, to lose, and to be the fathers of dead sons. Unable to bear the thought of sending a man who so echoes Dream's own grief back into the night alone, Dream breaks his own rule and invites Hob to stay with him for a time, at least until he can get back on his feet.

    The story of two grief-stricken, divorced, and widowed fathers to sons they lost too young truly seeing one another and there, at their lowest point, doing their best to put themselves and each other back together.

    Summary

    “I would try,” Dream said. “To be human. If this is your will.”

    “Yes!” Death exclaimed, and threw an arm around Dream’s shoulder in celebration. Dream carefully folded an arm around Death in return. They stood like this for a while, an embrace between siblings, a quiet understanding between them. Suddenly, Death started laughing. First, small giggles, then chuckles, and then a full, loud laugh.

    Dream raised a silent eyebrow at them.

    “Oh, it’s just that you are going to be absolutely hopeless without your powers, it’s going to be hilarious. Have you ever done anything the human way?”

    “I have observed,” Dream said, haughtily.

    Death succumbed to another bout of laughter.

    Or, the one in which Dream of the Endless, Morpheus, retires all of their powers and becomes human.
