    Summary

    "Let me help." A hundred years or so from now, I believe, a famous novelist will write a classic using that theme. He'll recommend those three words even over "I love you".
    -Captain Kirk, Star Trek:TOS, "The City On The Edge Of Forever"

    Summary

    When a Celtic deity is cast out of the pantheon by the angry gods, his beautiful music - which keeps the gods alive - dies with him. Unable to live without his songs despite the light of truth they cast on them, the Tuatha Dé Danann allow Taliesin to be resurrected as a mortal by the faith and adoration of his followers, a global throng of loyals gained through the human world's need to worship celebrity.

    Brought back in a neverending series of random incarnations, Taliesin falls into fame through his music and the effect it has on the humans he now lives among. But as a mortal he's a bit hapless and accident-prone, so a second deity, his lover from the Fae realm, is sent to follow him through his many lives, guiding him toward greatness while nurturing his gentle soul.

    In this incarnation Taliesin has rebooted after a fatal accident - orchestrated by a godly assassin to halt progress on a new song condemning the deities who cast him out - and has returned even more determined to continue calling them out on their wickedness and its effect on the modern religions of the world. But first he's got plans for a certain group of angels...

    Based on lyrics from NOBODY, from the album WASTELAND BABY by Hozier
