See me twice, saved but lost time I found

First Hint:

See me once, my dice are divine my friend
See me twice, my brother's story would never end

See me once, at the start of the week, when gambling on Chinese ground, my dice are divine.

Mo - may be short for Monday.
mo - the ISO code and Internet country code top-level domain for Macau.
Mo - Tibetan divination which uses dice.

See me twice, the men becoming bleak, saved lost time I found, my brother's story would never end.

This suggests the novel Momo, also know as The Grey Gentlemen, by Michael Ende. Momo is a girl who saves her society from the sinsister Men in Grey who are stealing the time of humans.
Michael Ende also wrote The Neverending Story, centred on the boy Bastian Balthazar Bux.

  • $\begingroup$ Nicely done! Since you found the correct answer and every clue you explained is correct, can you also explain the very last line - "my brother's story would never end"? I know you can do it :) $\endgroup$ – Kaspar Scherrer Oct 19 '18 at 15:00

I think the answer is

Sun

See me once, at the start of the week

Depending on when you start your week, it might start with Sunday

See me twice, the men becoming bleak

If you see the sun twice, you're likely gonna be bleak or tired

I dunno the rest, but I think I'm allowed to post this.

    $\begingroup$ Not the correct answer, but yes you are allowed to post this :) See the previous riddles in the series to find the meaning of the phrase "see me twice". $\endgroup$ – Kaspar Scherrer Oct 19 '18 at 13:41

I think it's

R

See me once, at the start of the week

Sunday, which is abbreviated with R

See me twice, the men are becoming bleak

I think this stands for re-roll, as in rerolling a character in a game, because your last character was either finished or failed?

See me once, when gambling on Chinese ground

R for renminbi, the currency of the people's republic of China

See me twice, saved but lost time I found

Rereading something, saving yourself from a mistake but lost time by having to reread it
