    Summary

    What led Hob Gadling — at the time known as Robert Stranger, because he’d been in a permanent state of pettiness from 1889 to about 1904 and now he was stuck with it — to the dank, cold, and dark basement of the Burgess house on March of 1957 was not so much coincidence or fate as it was curiosity.

    Yeah. Cats isn’t the only thing it kills.

     

    Alright, wait. Back up. Let’s start from the beginning.

    It was 1957 and Hob Gadling was, by no action or choice of his own, sort of — it’s a bit embarrassing — a criminal master.

    Not mastermind! He hadn’t planned any of it. Honestly.

    Summary

    Hob visits his storage unit outside Buffalo, New York, on a rainy night. He’s taken to keeping caches like this one around the world…kind of a ‘just in case’ contingency plan. He gets more than he bargained for when he hears a racket coming from the neighboring unit. He didn’t really have a contingency plan for what and who he finds in there.

    Summary

    “Dream,” Slips from her lips unbidden, barely a whisper.

    She sees him open his mouth and shape her name, but the sound does not even list upon the air and his face falls. Despair feels the moment he plunges once more into her domain, sudden and all-consuming enough to almost bring her to her knees with the force of it.

    Desire’s arm around her waist holds her up and they wipe away her tears with gentle fingers. Their face is thunderous as they step into the light where Dream can see them – and their brother flinches before he can master the reaction.

    Or

    Despair and Desire find that lording over Dream's capture doesn't quite go to plan

    Summary

    “Dream of the Endless,” Roderick sneers, and taps the handle of his cane on the glass. Dream of the Endless blinks once, out of sync, but otherwise doesn’t respond. There is something terribly inhuman about him, something Ethel can’t define but recognizes on the same level of awareness that knows there is something lurking behind her in the dark.

    They keep a tiger in the basement, in a cage of glass and willpower, she thinks to herself, and follows Roderick back upstairs and does not sleep at all that night.

    (or, ethel cripps gets sick of roderick's shit and instead of stealing from him and running away, she frees dream from his cage)
