    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

    “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

    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

    Dies ist die sehr freie Wiedererzählung und Neuinterpretation des Gilgamesch - Epos aus der Sicht einer leider oft vernachlässigten Nebenfigur. Anfang und Endteil sowie einige Einschübe sind frei nach Mythen und Liedern rund um die Gestalt der Göttin Innana und meiner eigenen Fantasie konzipiert.
    Vom Stil her nicht direkt Prosa, aber auch keine gebundene Sprache.

    Summary

    Hear now in praise of the Queen of Heaven
    She who drives the storms
    and crafts passion into hot limbs.

    Here now the people of Uruk wait
    With their open windows hoping to be blessed
    Longing to be be remade by this Queen.

    One such was the woman Shamat
    Blessed then among all women
    Blessings on Shamat and the city.

    Summary

    It was not planned, not staged as a moment of theatrical revenge. Ereshkigal sought only to see her sister humiliated, stripped of the trappings of power she held dear. But fate turned into a more memorable opportunity.
