    Summary

    At a glance, they are strangers. Like the fragments of a star forming, dicing with the novelty of a sensation they don't fully comprehend yet.

    A coquettish smile.

    A fleeting touch.

    A lingering gaze.

    Achilles and Patroclus meet at a party.

    Summary

    “Here,” Achilles says, handing Patroclus’ book back to him. He’s sitting in the seat right behind him today. “Patroclus, right?”

    “Yeah,” he says, taking his book back. “It’s Pa-tro-clus, yeah.”

    Pa-tro-clus, emphasis on the middle syllable instead of the first. Achilles had said Pat-ro-clus on purpose.

    “Right,” he says. “We have a few classes together, I think. Mrs Demeter’s fifth period biology?”

    Patroclus is staring at him like a deer caught in the headlights. “Yeah, I think so. Maybe. Can’t remember.”

    Achilles gives him a frown, but it’s not really genuine.

    “I can’t remember if we share the same class,” Patroclus corrects. “That’s what I meant. I know what classes I have.”

    (Achilles is memorable. He’s the kind of guy that lets everyone know when he walks into a room.

    So what the fuck does this kid mean he doesn’t remember? Achilles remembers him, so why doesn’t Patroclus remember him in turn?)

    Summary

    “Your mother…” Patroclus began, stuttering, terrified of what might happen next; what might that imply.

    “She will never know,” Achilles whispers, leaning in closer to him, his lips on Patroclus’ neck.

     

    or

     

    Achilles finds out that his mother can't see them up on Pelion a little sooner then he does in the book, so yknow that happens.

    Summary

    Achilles knows not if the Underworld truly lies below the surface of the living world or if he's been marooned in an entirely different realm, and this is all there is.

    He is determined, and he is desperate, and he is in love, and so the matter of where it resides is of no consequence to Achilles because Patroclus holds half of his heart, and Achilles has already crossed the entire Underworld; he has scaled the cliffs of Tartarus, and gods be damned, he has not made it this far just to be held back by the trivial laws their domains are governed by.

    ---

    Or, in which it is Achilles' turn to scour the ends of the earth until he finds Patroclus.

    Summary

    “I do not think I could bear it,” he said, at last. His eyes were closed, as if against horrors. I knew he spoke not of his death, but of the nightmare Odysseus had spun, the loss of his brilliance, the withering of his grace. I had seen the joy he took in his own skill, the roaring vitality that was always just beneath the surface. Who was he if not miraculous, and radiant? Who was he if not destined for fame?

    “I would not care,” I said. The words scrabbled from my mouth. “Whatever you became. It would not matter to me. We would be together.”

    “I know,” he said quietly. His gaze met mine.

    He knew and it was enough. Hope bloomed in my chest. He would live, but all things swift and beautiful and bright would fade. I opened my mouth, but no sound escaped my lips.

    “I will not go,” he said. “I will not go to Troy.”

     

    What if Achilles and Patroclus do not go to Troy?

    Summary

    “Amidst all of this, Achilles’ outward demeanor remains cool. Yet, as the days drag on, I can sense his mood beginning to sour again, frustrated that Agamemnon is not supplicating himself at our doorstep like he had hoped. I am aware that he is falling into my arms for comfort as much as I am falling into his. Time becomes imperceptible, and the nights spent in bed begin to bleed long into the daylight hours as well. We do not care. Or at least, we do not care enough to stop.”

    Tensions mount in the Myrmidon camp after Achilles’ withdrawal from the war. And yet it is Patroclus who finds himself receiving the majority of the blame.

    Summary

    Patroclus has come to a definite conclusion: growing up sucks, and a cancer diagnosis certainly doesn't help.

    It's difficult for him to stay positive as he juggles his illness along with just trying to survive his own other personal battles, but when a certain sunshine-haired boy forces his way and threatens to do whatever it takes to brighten Patroclus's life, things might not turn out so bad.

    A modern Patrochilles retelling in which Patroclus and Achilles meet in elementary school, and how their relationship develops throughout the years. (Please mind trigger warnings at the beginning of each chapter, tags will be added.)

    Summary

    "His smile is all that is ever good in the world.

    He doesn't know, I think. He doesn't know what I would give to keep him happy like this.

    We stumble into the sea, splashing and slipping under the surface, his hand through mine; for as long as I live, the scent of the crushed summer blooms, the taste of the salt, will remind me of this.

    Something swells and aches in my chest.

    Patroclus, Patroclus, Patroclus."

    Summary

    “Name one hero who was happy."
    He couldn't.
    "You can't," Achilles sat up bringing him with him.
    "I can't," he told him.
    "I know. They never let you be famous AND happy." He lifted an eyebrow. "I'll tell you a secret."
    "Tell me." Patroclus loved it when he was like this.
    "I'm going to be the first." Achilles took his palm and held in his. "Swear it."
    "Why me?" His lover could be so mysterious at times.
    "Because you're the reason. Swear it."
    "I swear it," he said, lost in the high color of Achilles' cheeks, the fire in his eyes.
    "I swear it," he echoed.
    Achilles' pink lips tilted up in a blinding smile, "I feel like I could eat the world raw,” before he leaned over to kiss him.
    Gods, he was so in love with him. Their kiss grew more and more heated.

    Summary

    Thetis is not fully convinced that she should give her son away to Patroclus for the rest of time. She needs some persuasion from those who knew him the best.

    Basically, I inserted a deleted scene between when Thetis talks with Patroclus and when she carves her name on his grave.

    Summary

    It is such frivolous activity, something that they wouldn’t normally think much of if it were with anybody else, but with him, every second, every repeated routine, every tiny detail that might otherwise be considered insignificant by another, filled a place made specially for it in his swelling heart.

    After a successful hunt together, Achilles and Patroclus spend the night celebrating, and everything goes as it usually does between them, until a sip too much wine makes way for something new.
