    Summary

    It was the smallest things, however, about the bar that made it feel slightly left of field. As if there was a constant shadow in the corner of his eye. Every time he turned to look it would vanish and then flash away from his thoughts without consequence.

    Strange people came to the Inn and Hob thought that perhaps they were similar to him in ways he couldn’t voice. They felt more like the stranger though, but looked at him with hopeful hungry eyes. Hob wasn’t sure what he was meant to give them. In the end, he beamed a smile, offered them hospitality and figured that would just have to do for now.

    ---

    Or how to unknowingly build a shrine to the personification of dreams, only for him to appear wet and naked outside your pub. A raven is there.

    Summary

    With a deep, steadying breath, Hob utters the last sentence he could have expected.

    “You and I have known each other since 1389.”


    [In which Dream loses his memory, Hob loses his mind, and the world takes a turn for the worse before it gets better.]

    Summary

    It was unusual for a dream to feature any of the Endless or their family, and stranger still they featured Dream himself. He was rarely seen in the waking world, and as such featured in these regurgitated, malformed memories far less than even his sister Death did. But it was not unheard of. As Lucienne would say, you do tend to make an impression, my Lord.

    Chapter one, the times Dream was informed that Hob Gadling was dreaming of him, 1389 through to 1916.
    Chapter two, a newly changed Dream realises that he rather likes when Hob Gadling dreams of him.

    Summary

    When Dream doesn't show up for their appointment in 1989, Hob decides to devote a part of his immortality to looking for his mysterious friend. He is dedicated not to wait and hope for another century for the slim chance of seeing him again.
    Even if he has to bribe, lie and steal, use every trick in the book he's learned in the past 600 years, he will find him.

    After over a century, Dream has almost given up on the hope of ever escaping his prison when help finally shows up in the form of someone least expected, compelling him to re-evaluate the nature of his interest in an old acquaintance.
