    Summary

    Enki burst forth from water, distinct and struggling, and he saw his path laid out before him as he emerged from the abzu. He walked towards it with joy. Humans were supposed to be the pinnacle of his orderly achievement, but other gods strive differently and build their world in different ways. Both Ninki and Inanna are such gods, and Enki would regret forgetting that. Enki makes some monumentally poor decisions, drinks too much, and finds himself back on the path fate laid down for him at the moment of his creation.

    Summary

    Ishtar and Gilgamesh.

    Two shattered remnants of a whole.

    A certain arrogant, High-Minded, God-Hating, Hedonistic King pursues every form of happiness imaginable, drifting from one to the next without pause. Plagued by constant self-doubt, will his vehemence hinder his capacity to forgive, or will he reach the truest form of joy?

    A certain chocolate-haired, lavender-eyed Queen of Heavens is burdened by her regret. Will she allow her childish decisions of the past to outweigh her one chance at happiness with the only man she could ever love, or will her pride yet become her downfall?

    Lapses of time will be indicated by a '*****'.

    Told in omniscient 3rd-person with touches of insanity.

    Summary

    Ya'll heard the stories. Wings black as pitch, blotting out the noon-day sun and bringing with them the smell of death.

    Ya'll heard the tales. The dead rising to retake the earth, along with the hoofbeats that brought pestilence and Hell.

    Ya'll heard the...well, Hell if I ain't run out of synonyms.

    Mud'll take care of it. Always has. And judging by that look in the bastard's eyes and the crazy that plum leaks outta him, he always will.

    What was it the Postal Service used to promise? Neither rain, nor snow, nor...? Fuck it. Mail comes around at some point. Even through Hell's Legions. Same as Mud.

    Ya'll heard the stories, after all.

    Summary

    The story of Death, however he may be portrayed in any culture, and his beloved wife. How they met. Rated T because she had to die so she can meet him, and death is unpleasant. I tried to keep it low on the details.

    Summary

    "She smiles and bends down to look at him, her long, deep green hair flowing over her shoulder. 'I ask of you…are you worthy to be my Master?'

    The young man starts like a fawn, his big green eyes wide. After a long, awkward pause, he looks down at the grass, then at her. He shows her the Command Seals on his hand, red as bull’s blood. She admires their flowing yet jagged shape.

    'I—I should be,' the young man says with attempted confidence. 'I summoned you, after all.'

    Shamhat laughs softly to herself and holds out her hand to help him up. 'I am Caster. It’s a pleasure to meet you.'"

    In which Shamhat is summoned into the Caster Class, and finds herself once again set an impossible task with a conflicted student.

    Summary

    As many know, the Hunter retrieved a temple prostitute from the city of Gilgamesh to seduce Enkidu. But what happened on the journey there?

    This was done for a mythology class. We had to take a moment that was either lost to time or simply not written from the Gilgamesh epic and write it ourselves. I chose to write about the journey leading to Enkidu.

    Summary

    “You know I just want the best for you,” Shamhat says.
    “Yeah. I know.”
    There’s a long pause.
    “I’m gonna fuck Gilgamesh,” Inanna says, matter-of-factly.
    Shamhat sighs, again. “Yeah. I know.”

     

    or - a high school "retelling" of the part in the epic of gilgamesh where he rejects inanna, and she fights back.... with pranks
