    Summary

    You were only supposed to be the King's servant, one of many. It wasn't supposed to branch off into... whatever this is. They were just rumors, you told yourself. The King didn't really do this with his attendants. That was depraved.

    Oh, how wrong you were to think that. And oh, how pleased you are that you were this wrong.

    Just some Fate series Gilgamesh/Reader self-indulgent bullshit that I dreamed up in a fit of extreme thirst. Story is told during Gilgamesh's lifetime as King of Uruk, from the reader's viewpoint while writing in their diary. Reader is deliberately kept as gender-neutral as possible, so anyone can thirst over everyone's favorite asshole AUO with the help of this fic. First time attempting something like this, so don't expect anything good.

    Also, God please smite me from above the heavens for creating... whatever this is.

    Summary

    After hearing about Gilgamesh from Shamhat, Enkidu went after him without second thoughts. The king does not know who is this person who suddenly steps in front of him, but he had dreams... So he can pretty much guess.

    Or

    That one super fragmented part from the Tablet II, when they meet. But Fate/series compliant.

    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

    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.
