Author's Summary: Seven times Jack met the Endless.
Characters/Pairings: Jack, the Endless, Ten
Recced because: As with the previous crossover I recced this week, "Destiny Can Wait" is very true to its characters; in this case, the Endless from Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, anthropomorphized representations of Death, Dream, Destruction, Destiny, Despair, Desire, and Delirium. The story is a short set of drabbles, touching on Jack's encounters with all seven siblings, and each vignette has the dreamy, melancholy quality that marks so much of the Sandman series. These are beautifully written pieces, worth reading even if you've never picked up any of the Gaiman graphic novels ... and if you haven't, I hope you'll consider doing so after this story.
