    Summary

    Patroclus sighs as he shuts the door to their room and slides down against it, holding so tight onto his bathrobe that his fists have turned white. "Achilles was there. Showering. Naked." 

    ". . .So Pelides takes showers naked? Like the rest of us? Damn, Pat, don't go around saying that, people will realize he's not an actual god." 

     

    Or: Patroclus and the shower chronicles.

    Summary

    “I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.” – The Song of Achilles

    It was once written that no Greek hero is both happy and famous, it is true with one comes the loss of the other. But.. once a hero swore to his lover that he will make it so that he will be happy and famous. His lover, the reason why, swore it to him. They end up being another Greek tragedy written in stones, woven into clothes, told in tales of old. 

     It is time for their happy ending. Two souls meant for each other, finally get to embrace each other. Time has changed, no one wants a tragic love story. They just want a happy ending.

    Summary

    "...I would know him in death, at the end of the world."

    but what comes after?

    A story about two ancient lovers, Achilles and Patroclus. their story is far from over; yes, far from it. The Gods may have decided they were done then, in Troy, but now they are back as Reborn Souls, and once again find eachother falling for one another; albeit this time is much ungainly and leisurely. (like they deserved).

     

    Yes. I am obsessed with them. What of it 😭😭 I've been wanting to make a Reincarnated!AU for aWHILE NOW and boy am I ready. I just hope some people can enjoy- I'll be throwing in some Author's Notes and Art as well, so be on the lookout for that!

    Summary

    For a few moments, Achilles’ eyes are clouded in thought. Then, they clear with lucidity. He stands up straight, his hands held firmly behind him, the very picture of a dignified soldier. Achilles has always been a person of dualities, at once a capricious thespian and a devoted warrior.

    “I hear you, your majesties,” he says as he takes another bow. “It shall be done.”

    From his position at the edge of the throne room, Patroclus feels his chest seize.

    Or: Prince Achilles is getting married. His bodyguard and closest friend, Patroclus, wishes he were the bride.

    Summary

    Do I know of any hero that was happy? He thinks.

    (And frowns, because he is certain he has heard similar words spoken somewhere. They seem important, so why is it that he could not remember where they came from?)

    Summary

    "Oh." Then, Achilles’ voice changes from incredulous and confused to a mean one. "You didn’t tell me you had an account." 

    They tell each other everything, so Patroclus sees how that might have upset Achilles. He is letting him know now, but Patroclus still feels the most guilty he’s ever felt. "It's new. Briseis said it would be fun and I could meet...Uh, new people." 

    Guys who could help me get over you, is what Patroclus doesn't mention.

      Or: A tinder affair gone wrong has never felt better. Patroclus has Briseis to thank for that.

    Summary

    When he came, I was on my back, plucking the lyre. I decided it counted as practicing. I heard him come in and waited for his introduction to begin, but nothing came. I let my head fall to my side and looked over to him. His posture was awkward. It was like he was internally fighting himself, wanting to shrink and wanting to stand tall at the same time.

    or: the early years, as told from Achilles perspective.

    Summary

    It occurred to him on a dreadfully normal day: I’m in love with Patroclus. It wasn’t a great epiphany, or a gasping realization. It was gentle, delicate. But when had it changed? When did he fall in love? And, now, how was he going to let Patroclus know?

    A 5 +1 that's not exactly a 5 + 1.

    The prince and his friend.
    The soldier and his friend.
    The soldier and the healer.
    Achilles and Patroclus.

    Summary

    Patroclus holds his gaze, feels the tug of the tether drawn to his heart. Here he is, the other half of his soul, sprawled across their bed and smiling. For a moment Patroclus forgets the war, forgets his dread, Achilles’ eyes sweep across him like a salve of yarrow and stanch the grief he holds for things that have yet to come to pass.

    Summary

    Henry knew he had seen him before, yet he couldn't quite figure out where. He felt almost as if he was interconnected with this boy, that something was pulling him closer. Yet, he couldn't help but push him away, he didn't want to hurt him again.

    Summary

    If someone asked Patroclus how he got to meet Greece's youngest and most awarded athlete ever, they’d call his answer a lie. In fact, as impossible as it sounds, this is the truth: on a freezing cold night, in a bus station. Who would ever believe that Achilles Pelides, the nation’s golden boy and probably already rich enough to live comfortably off his own money, takes the bus? Patroclus, too, could hardly believe it. 

    Or: A freezing cold bench in a bus station is the main character witnessing two tragic lovers who eventually find their way to each other.
