    Summary

    Hector is ushered to Elysium after his death, but he remains haunted by the animalistic rage in the eyes of his killer, and wonders what kind of man he once was. In his search for Achilles, he encounters Patroclus instead, and through time and talking the wounds of the war begin to heal.

    Summary

    Patroclus knew three things as he died.

    First: If Achilles had loved Patroclus more than his own godsdamned pride, he’d have joined the battle and the Greeks would have won the day.

    Second: if Achilles had loved Patroclus more than his own godsdamned glory, they would never have joined the war in the first place. They might have lived out their days together in peace, far from the bloody plains of Ilium. And Patroclus would not have died in a foreign land, alone.

    Third: Death had stripped away the pain in his body. The pain in his soul remained.

    Summary

    The two of them must have huddled together as the room filled up, instead of doing the smart thing and trying to find a way out. Vespa had held her emergency air filter firmly over her face and walked over to prod the pile of worn trenchcoat and slacks on the floor with her boot, only to feel something solid inside.

    Carefully, she'd leaned down to get a better look. And what she'd found, to her complete disbelief, was a kid. A very unconscious kid that looked an awful lot like her pain-in-the-ass crewmate Juno Steel.

    -

    Or, Nureyev and Juno get given the "macguffin-ed into kids" treatment and everyone has to deal with that, but especially one very tired Vespa Ilkay.

    Summary

    It’s the sound of Patrick’s muffled gasp that wakes Simon more than anything.

    “Patrick?” he asks, sitting up, and Patrick takes a deep breath.

    Simon is far from alone in being traumatized by the past century.
