    Summary

    Hey, hey, they’re the Mesopotamians.
    They like to Tigris around.
    Hey, hey, they’re the Mesopotamians.
    They’re too busy singing,
    to put anybody down.

    Except for Ashurbanipal,
    because he says your haircut
    makes you look like a Mohenjo-Daroan.

    Summary

    Queen La, the lonely. High Priestess La, the empty. All she asked for was a companion to share her burden. A non-monkey burden. The Leopard priests brought her a slightly bruised daughter. Queen La, the lonely, wasn’t quite so lonely now that she had her lost princess.

    Princess Ja of Opar wore for a crown that which she had killed with her own hand, because nobody hurts Mummy and gets away with it.

    Summary

    It may be generally understood that the Greek gods were arrogant a******s and Artemis was really good at violence.

    At the dawn of the Trojan War, Iphigenia was prepared to be a willing sacrifice to Arrow Rain Showering Artemis (she's so moon-struck dreamy). Penelope was ready to do the practical thing in Ithaca. Circe had vital experiments to complete. Vital! Penthesilea was just waiting for the war to start. Achilles was looking forward to some lovely encounters with heroes. Helen was taking a hot steamy bath.

    Which is why the aliens really shouldn't have tried to shock and awe the earthlings by beaming up the Queens and stealing Artemis' sacrifice. Big mistake. Huge really.

    Or, how Iphigenia escaped certain death and Helen found new opportunities.

    Summary

    Jane used to rush into strange dreams at night: dreams many-coloured, agitated, full of the ideal, the stirring, the stormy--dreams where, amidst unusual scenes, charged with adventure, with agitating risk and romantic chance,she still again and again met Edward, always at some exciting crisis; and then the sense of being in his arms, hearing his voice, meeting his eye, touching his hand and cheek, loving him, being loved by him--the hope of passing a lifetime at his side, would be renewed, with all its first
    force and fire. Then they awoke.

    Summary

    It was a story told a thousand and one ways. What was new was the voice of the teller. What was new was the ear of the listener. The way the threads of the story wove one to the other.
