    Summary

    “You know what kept me going, century after century?” Hob is angry enough, desperate enough, that his voice drops low, quiet. “Even when I had nothing?”

    The music around them crests, waves crashing against the unyielding shores of time –

    “Chimneys,” Morpheus answers, bland.

    Oh, what a bastard.

    --------------------

    Or, dreams are memories, Hob reflects about life, and Morpheus learns a thing or two about what it means to be saved, and to be loved.

    Summary

    What if, when they meet in the twenty-first century, Hob is a little more human, a little slower to forgive, and Dream a little more cognizant of how one should treat centuries-old friends, though no more socially competent?

    Or: Dream's admission that Hob is his friend prompts a realisation of what else Dream's longest - and only - friend means to him.

    [alt: hob learns of the origins of his immortality and reacts accordingly, six hundred years really is too long to learn a name, Death is the best big sister, and Dream grovels (just a little). and then they kiss and make up, because of course they do.]

    Summary

    “You dare suggest one such as I might need your companionship?” Ice, sharper than any knife, laced every syllable. A warning if Hob were a smarter man, he was not a smarter man.

    "Yes, yes I do."

    He could feel the fall approaching yet do nothing to slow his momentum, too hell bent on proving his theory. One that had been gnawing away at his mind for the last century. Memories of his stranger’s barely there smile, words of concern for his safety that cracked his chest open like a walnut and left him hopelessly addicted with only the one taste to sustain him through a century of pining.

    Summary

    On a summer's afternoon in 1989, Hob Gadling's apartment is visited by a white-chested raven with an invitation in its beak.

    ~~

    or: the quintessential fishbowl rescue fic, except I have no regards for canon and thought it would be interesting to examine what Hob's life might have looked like in the wake of Dream's imprisonment. Hope you enjoy!
