    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.

    Summary

    What do you do when your honorary brother in arms is doomed to suffer another year stuck in skirts?
    Well, if you're Achilles, you take the bullet for him.
    What do you do when you find yourself falling in love with the cute (most likely straight) new guy?
    Well, if you're Achilles, you find yourself utterly compromised (in the most agreeable way).
    Now: What do you do when your archnemesis- and, no, just because you're in high school that doesn't mean that you're too young to have one thank you very much- finds out the truth about you?
    Well, if you're Achilles, you break his nose (in the least agreeable way possible).

    Summary

    When Elektra is five years old, she sits at the foot of her mother's vanity and watches as Klytemnestra runs a golden comb through her coal-black hair. These early mornings spent with her mother will make up some of Elektra's first memories, and even when she can no longer look at Klytemnestra for the traces of her father's blood on her cheeks, she always remembers her mother like this: the one gleaming piece of a world she's not old enough to understand.
