    Summary

    “Ah, well,” Achilles clears his throat. “If we leave now, we should be able to catch him. What do you say?”

    If there’s one trait that persists beyond life, it’s Achilles’ stubbornness. He won’t accept ‘no’ as an answer, will he?

    “Fine, but you best behave.”

    “When have I- you know what, never mind.”

    Patroclus and Achilles watch one of Zagreus' battles in Elysium. That's how it starts, at least.

    Summary

    When Hades asks Achilles to raise his infant son, Achilles refuses without thinking, as the idea of raising a child without Patroclus is too painful to contemplate. As it turns out, his mindless refusal of the God of the Underworld changed his fate for the better.

    Summary

    “I… I will not be able to convince him to stop fighting.” Patroclus said carefully, wary of displeasing a god, “Even my word cannot dissuade him from his destiny.”

    “See that’s the fun part, you don’t have to convince him of anything.” Hypnos smiled, “In fact, you don’t have to do anything for this plan. We’re just gonna take you out of the equation for a little bit, that’s all, grant Achilles some clarity of mind.” Patroclus’ eyes went wide as he put it together, fists clenching on his thighs at Hypnos’ blithe air over such a cruel plan.

    “I am to be held hostage?” he rasped, heart heavy and throat tight, “To be used against Achilles like... like a favored toy dangled over a misbehaving child?”

    Summary

    When he awoke for the first time, it wasn’t unpleasant, per se. He was surrounded simultaneously by a gentle warmth and a brisk breeze, just chill enough to cut through the temperature in a completely innocuous way.

    He opened his eyes to find the sky as bright as the sunniest of days (and yet the sun was missing), and to find himself lying on a patch of the greenest grass imaginable. Its fresh fragrance rose on the wind, drawing him to consciousness.

    No, when he awoke for the first time, there was no unpleasantness at all: just this deep and unsettling sense that something was *missing*.
