    Summary

    Veteran Bombay crime lord Ganesh Gaitonde tries to celebrate his wife's death anniversary twelve years after she was slain. He meets a courtesan whose enigma should be enough to keep him occupied.

    This courtesan is no other than Ishtar of Sumer, who tried to delay her irrelevance as a god by migrating to the Hindus Valley where she then adapted an Indian persona.

    Meanwhile, decades into the future while finally settled in America, she was approached by another fallen deity who has escaped an abusive marriage for the price of complete anonymity.

    Old and New gods try to co-exist in America, although the New seek more to tilt the scales into their favor by employing those who have more to gain through self-interest than fulfilling obligation to their divine kith. Such was the case with humanity's forgotten hero, Gilgamesh.

    These four lives become entangled in ways that they never want to be or can escape from; the threads of which knitted by the younger Endlesses, Desire, Despair, and Delirium.

    Only Death could unravel them.

    Summary

    "I think love's kiss kills our heart of flesh.
    It is the only way to eternal life,
    Which should be unbearable if lived
    Among the dying flowers
    And the shrieking farewells
    Of the overstretched arms of our spoiled hopes."

    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?

    Summary

    (Eventually) a 25 chapter fic covering all my ABO Bingo Prompts, main pairing is Dean/Castiel, and other ships will be warned for in chapter headers.

    Sam, Dean and Cas are on the trail of a malevolent goddess, and while that should be a simple task, it's complicated by Castiel's jealousy and Dean's desperate urge to avoid any kind of emotional relationship, let alone bonding with an Alpha who is clearly completely devoted to him.

    But that's all about to change.
