    Summary

    It is not, strictly speaking, the fault of Death and Dream that the little neighborhood where first the White Horse and then the New Inn reside is… something of an unusual place. But it does… enhance things, for two such entities to enter into a wager there, their daemons at their side. For one of them to make an appointment to return, on a set date, for as long as the man he is meeting chooses to live.

    (It does something to the man and his daemon too.)

     Or, Hob Gadling and his daemon navigate immortality, encounters with the magical, and complicated feelings for the Stranger and his Cat that they meet once a century. In the end, somehow, it keeps coming back to the little neighborhood where it all began.

    Summary

    No…it couldn’t be. “Dream?”

    Large mitted paws, stretched before crossing in a regal sprawl, while acid yellow eyes appraised him in a slow, lazy blink. “Hello, Hob.”

    Summary

    Dream does not understand how they went from Hob finding him easy to love, from sucking his fingers and fucking into his body and clinging to his chest and looking at him like salvation lived in his eyes and whispering "Morpheus," and "My husband, thou who my soul loveth," to deciding that what he wanted was to be friends and declaring that what he saw in Dream was loneliness.
    -----
    "Robert Gadling, I am your husband. I did not want to be your friend."

    or

    in which Dream friend-zones himself for over a century and Hob believes he has created an elaborate a self-insert RPF in his head staring his stranger.
