    Summary

    The sound of his laugh, rich and clear like a babbling brook. His hair under the bright midsummer sun. The amber light of a fire catching in the emerald depths of his eyes. His hand in mine. Moments of happiness and grief, of quiet contemplation, and moments when my heart beat so hard I thought it would burst. A thousand little moments, like fireflies in the night, crowding forward.

    I am made of memories.

    Summary

    Achilles is the bastard son of a wealthy landowning farming family in rural Australia. Quick witted, savage and charming, Achilles has the world at his feet and half a mind to burn it down.

    At twelve, a distant country cousin comes to stay with him - kind, patient Patroclus. Privately tutored together for years, an attraction sparks, but the more Achilles presses Patroclus to admit his feelings, the more he wriggles out of it. Achilles tells himself it's fine; he doesn't mind watching Patroclus squirm.

    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

    "I am certain," Achilles breathes, blissful, "that I have told you how I like this."

    Patroclus huffs a laugh. "You have," he says, feeling the sweet heat of Achilles' body all around him. Achilles' thighs over his hips, his hands roaming over Patroclus' chest. He must be able to feel each of Patroclus' ribs, every thud of his heart.

    Summary

    Achilles, mặt trời rọi những tia nắng cuối cùng quanh đầu cậu như vòng hào quang, chói lòa và rực rỡ.

    Achilles, hai lòng bàn chân chớp nhoáng ánh hồng khi cậu phóng ngang bờ biển.

    Achilles, ngón tay thon dài gảy sợi đàn lia, đôi mắt xanh lục như quả ô liu mới ép. Nụ cười gian như mèo của cậu.

    “Đoán xem mình đang nghĩ gì,” cậu hỏi.

    Con chim cổ đỏ bay vụt qua đầu chúng tôi. Giấc mơ tối qua của cậu về một con thuyền với cánh buồm màu tía, mũi tàu mạnh mẽ xẻ dọc những con sóng trên biển Aegan. Bùa hộ mệnh bằng gỗ lủng lẳng trước cổ. Điều này, điều nọ và điều kia.

    “Mình sẽ là anh hùng đầu tiên được hạnh phúc,” cậu nói với tôi nhiều năm sau đó. “Cậu chính là lý do.”

    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? - Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles

    Achilles chooses to become king of Phthia instead of fighting at Troy. He returns home and takes the throne while grappling with the prophecy's promise: that he has doomed himself to mortality. What follows is a vicious court, cheese pastries, a sun god's wrath, and how to be happy, if not a hero.

    Summary

    Sing to me, goddess, and tell me his story, the man so beloved,
    Of his fall into the gold arms of fury that danced as his tears bled.

     

    My mother was a goddess and a daughter of the sea. A nymph. She was taller than any woman, and looked down on the rest of us. Her pale skin was like an ocean pearl, gleaming against the midnight-black of her long hair.

    Summary

    Achilles, the sun casting its last rays around his head like a halo, resplendent and aureate.

    Achilles, the soles of his feet flashing pink as he sprints across the beach.

    Achilles, slender fingers plucking the strings of his lyre, eyes green like fresh pressed olives. His cat's smile.

    "Guess what I'm thinking about," he says.

    The robin that flew over our heads but a minute past. The dream he had last night of a ship with purple sails, its prow slicing the waves of the Aegean sea. The wooden amulet that hangs about the augur's neck. This and this and this.

    "I'll be the first hero to be happy," he would tell me years later. "You're the reason."

    Summary

    “Don’t you see?!” Cassandra demands, grabbing Nestor by the shoulders and shaking him. Patroclus watches the show with mild interest. “There are cool kids and there are losers, there are jocks and rich kids and geeks and goths and stoners and everything in between, and what we’re about to enter is a swirling vortex of horror wherein they all intermix.”

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    Or, in which Patroclus pines after Achilles, Achilles pines after Patroclus, Briseis plays matchmaker, Odysseus has bad ideas, Diomedes has worse ones, Agamemnon sucks, Menelaus can't hold down a girlfriend, and the entire school goes to war.
