    Summary

    Almost five thousand years ago in ancient Mesopotamia, Aziraphale and Crowley (or rather, Crawley) manage to get themselves mixed up in a series of events that would later be called The Epic of Gilgamesh. To complete his Heaven-sent mission, and civilize a wild man named Enkidu, Aziraphale must escort Crawley on a long journey into the wilderness. And maybe also introduce Crawley to dining out and human food. At the same time, to complete his Hell-sent mission and civilize the same wild man, Crawley has to be escorted by Aziraphale on a long journey into the wilderness. And also maybe to have some strong new feelings that the demon had never had before...

    Of course, mistakes were made...

    This is for everyone who wanted more adventures of Aziraphale and Crowley throughout time and history, and especially those who want more adventures that cross into mythology.

    Summary

    The watching crowd parted, and the two men within turned to face Shamhat. She swore silently. Not just ‘big’ visitors—the biggest. She barely kept herself from bowing to Gilgamesh. As a temple’s head priestess, even here in Uruk’s most distant village with more hunters and herders than farmers, she was his equal in honor.

    But she did approach the king for the second time in her life. “In the name of Morning Inanna, welcome.”

    Summary

    When it's your not-materialistic friend's birthday but you haven't celebrated it in like 5000 years since you both died and you're not really sure what to get them and before you buy them a present, they give you a tortoise because your house is too big and empty and they think you need a long-lived animal to keep you company.

    (Direct sequel to "A Balancing Act, or a Courtship Dance (we're not sure which)")

    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.

    “You know I just want the best for you,” Shamhat says.
    “Yeah. I know.”

    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

    Even the equal created to match him, Enkidu can only stand his golden king's awful behavior for so long. The mud and clay being, sometime in this false night brought on by clouds from the west left, barely a note left scratched in a tablet for Gilgamesh to find. Though too proud and too stubborn to admit aloud, he finds solace in this resident god's own lonely stupor. He supposes that it's good they aren't a thorn in his side for the time being.
