    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

    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.”

    Summary

    Two reborn lovers enjoy a May Day get-away from their families and divine responsibilities.
    Language: English with a little Spanish. Greco-Latin and Sanskrit terms, some of which were put together by me. Unless indicated otherwise, assume Spanish is being spoken/thought. Please forgive any mistakes. I’m a native American English speaker.
    {Non-verbal pathic communication.}
    “Intentional, telepathic speech.”
    Internalized thoughts.
    Time Note: This takes place about two hundred years in the future, in a recovered post-apocalyptic America, in the last book of my outlined/partially written series, which is why there are so many references to the in-universe past.
    Name Note: For various reasons, these aren’t the names the characters go by in the books. But, here and there, these are modern reincarnations of the beings known to history/religion as Inanna/Ishtar/Aphrodite/Freya and Tezcatlipoca (among other, undisclosed personalities).

    Summary

    There were twelve princesses once, who so frightened their father by destroying their shoes, that he offered princes a kingdom for the secret and death for failing to learn the truth of them.

    Quite simply they danced every night. It wasn't the end when the truth came out. Not for any of the princesses.

    Nissa Premiere was the eldest, and most stubborn of them all. She was the one who drugged the princes.
    Iya Secunda was next. Never to be the first.
    Siva Terce loved music once. After, to hear was to scream.
    Tammuz Forte was chained to a wall below the earth. She grew strong there.
    Ave Quintilla heard her mother's call to the river.
    Elu Sextilla slipped away with her lover.
    Tishrei Kore ran away the day of her sister's wedding.
    Chesheva Edel felt the scales fall from her eyes and saw the truth.
    Kisle Danielle fell into a dream.
    Teve Esther realized that she lived a very odd life.
    Sheva Heure believed in eleventh hour rescues.
    And Adara Nocte, the youngest, that one had far to go.
