    Summary

    I yawned, bored with this as I kept lazily playing, “What’s your name?”

    I thought I had been loud enough but the room remained silent except for my lazy playing.

    I repeated, “What’s your name?”

    This time he answered, “Patroclus”.

    I stopped my playing and turned to my side to get a look of him. He had an accent that was thick and rich. His name rolled off his tongue and I found myself repeating it.

    Patroclus. Patroclus. Patroclus.

    He was once a Prince, but had been exiled for murder. He didn’t look like a murderer. I had expected him to be bigger and to be more muscular like the other boys. I remembered the servants telling me about him. Instead, he was smaller and tanned from his journey here. He didn’t look me in the eyes, but I wished he did. I smiled at him, hoping that it would draw a smile out of him.

    “My name is Achilles.” It was an attempt to get him to talk again. I wanted to hear his accent again.

    A retellings of "Song of Achilles" from Achilles perspective.

    Summary

    “We should get married,” Patroclus said, so nonchalantly Achilles almost didn’t respond, thinking it was just another phrase he replayed in his head near daily of all the things he wished Patroclus would say to him.
    “What?”
    “What do you think? I mean, of course I mean like, if neither of us find anyone by the time we’re 30 or something.”
    “Oh,” Achilles said, his brain failing to find a proper response. “Yeah, sure, ok.” He tried to bury the spark of hope ignited within him, but he knew he was blushing.
    “Ok then. 30 it is.”

    Summary

    Patrcolus got dragged to a football game from the boyfriend of one of his friends. At first he didn't saw anything nice in the sport. Just some people who kick a ball around, and get mad very easily. And it did not made it better that one of the most annoying people in the world was also there. But maybe if you just spend a few hours watching it, you see more than ever.

    Summary

    A word of caution:

    This is not a sexual fiction.
    It's rated and tagged accordingly, because it deals with sensitive content. Trauma.

    The tags serve as Trigger Warnings. If you've read TSOA, you know what has happened.
    This will be more detailed then what's in the book, albeit not descriptive of any sexual acts.
    It's going in on the terror and feelings of Achilles during this time and his mother's disapproval of his relationship, which weren't touched on enough in the book for my taste.
    This seemed to be a huge, impactful incident in their lives, that changes absolutely everything, so I decided to give it a try and explore what Achilles went through.

    It also touches on Achilles' gender identity and how he is quite gender-non-conforming, if you think about it.

    Unlike the other parts of the series, this is written from Achilles' POV.

    Also, this is a work in progress and it's rather more difficult to write than the other, light hearted stuff.
    So please be patient.

    Summary

    He is eighteen, freshly home from his first and last Olympics, and he steps out of the taxi to find the front lawn of his house littered with black garbage bags, little cards affixed to them on which Patroclus’s name is neatly printed. They contain all of his belongings.

    He sits on the curb for he-doesn’t-know-how long. When his neighbor’s car pulls up, she lets Patroclus into her house to use her phone. He dials the number that is more muscle memory than anything else at this point. Peleus answers, and within an hour, Achilles has the family car in front of Patroclus’s house and is stuffing the trash bags in the trunk.

    “Fuck your old man,” he says, slamming it shut.

    They don’t speculate out loud why this happened. They don’t have to. They know. They can say it was the heat of the moment or the highs of winning or whatever other excuse will allow sponsors and coaches and teammates to look the other way and pretend it was less than it was, but the footage was played live: Achilles breaking a world record, Achilles jumping into Patroclus’s arms, Achilles kissing him stupid.

    Summary

    Achilles thought he lost his chance at happiness when he became one of Hades' many subjects. He traded paradise for a quiet hall to guard, and his beloved for an afterlife of relative seclusion. Or so he had thought.

    Achilles never expected to find himself so heavily involved with the raising of the young prince, but here he is.

    ((Pre-canon, a story in which Zagreus grows up under the impression that Achilles, not Hades, is his father.))

    Summer was always dry heat and scorching sun in Phthia. It was long days on the farm and listless evenings by the creek or beneath the shade of the coolabah tree. It was foreign touches and shaky hands and held breath.

    Summary

    Sleep, king of Gods, and men of mortal birth, sov'reign of all sustain'd by mother Earth;
    For thy dominion is supreme alone, o'er all extended, and by all things known.
    'Tis thine all bodies with benignant mind in other bands than those of brass to bind:
    Tamer of cares, to weary toil repose, from whom sweet solace in affliction flows.
    Thy pleasing, gentle chains preserve the soul, and e'en the dreadful cares of death controul;
    For Death and Lethe with oblivious stream, mankind thy genuine brothers justly deem.
    With fav'ring aspect to my pray'r incline, and save thy mystics in their works divine.
    -Orphic Hymn LXXXIV (Orpheus)

    Once a king, now a lonely shepherd of dreams.

    Summary

    Patroclus excuses himself to get a beer from the fridge to slow down, and there, in the dim kitchen light, he stands surrounded by drunken freshmen, drinking beer straight from the bottle. He looks the same as Patroclus remembers him, maybe younger, with fewer lines around the eyes and mouth but the same golden hair and smile. Now that he has found him, he is rooted to the spot. He feels his heartbeat quicken and hears the blood rushing through his ears. Years, a lifetime, two lifetimes. And he finds him in a dirty kitchen of a second-rate frat party.

    -

    After years in Elysium, Achilles and Patroclus opt for rebirth. Unfortunately, the Fates (or whoever is responsible) mess up and Patroclus is left with snippets of his past existence interfering with his daily life while Achilles remembers nothing. Not even Patroclus.
