The Sandman is a series of award winning graphic novels (read: comic books) written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by a talented cadre of artists, including Dave McKean, who was the inspiration for the font 'ApocoStasis', seen on so much of this website. The series itself is about a family like any other, except that they are anthropomorphic entities that have existed since the dawn of time. In order of age, The Endless are: Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Despair, and Delirium once Delight.
Disclaimer: The Sandman, and the Endless characters belong to DC comics (which itself is owned by AOL/Time Warner) and Neil Gaiman. Please buy something Sandman related from them before reading this fanfic. I myself make no money from fanfic.
A Game of Lives
At six chapters long, this is my favorite story of the Sandman section. Larissa/Thessaly, the former lover of Morpheus, recounts the story of what happened in their relationship, years hence. Rated PG-13 for some sexual stuff, nothing too bad. Spoilers for the last books in the series.
Awards won: Wolfen Moondaughter's "Shipper-riffic" award.
A short story featuring Delirium/Delight, it's a little bit high concept, but I think generally good.
