    Summary

    Significant points in Achilles and Patroclus' relationship.

    Patroclus is the forgotten son of King Menoetius, hoping that moving to Phthia would offer him the opportunity to step out from shadows and spread his wings. There he meets the devilishly scandalous Achilles, whose golden wings Patroclus convinced to himself blocked the sun, but when supposed insolence marred with humility, inherent audacity with intrinsic confidence, vanity with insecurity, Achilles more or less opens up a shining light to Patroclus.

    Convinced that the gods won’t understand what he and Patroclus have together, Achilles struggles to protect their relationship from his fate, even if it means twisting the truth and tearing his emotions to shreds. Through time and time again Patroclus pursued him, stubborn on his devotion. Their love lasted from teenage years in Phthia, Mount Pelion with the wise centaur Chiron, Skyros with the demands of a newfound wife, and ten years of the Trojan War.

    Summary

    "His mother has named him Abaddon."

    Anger flashed once more in his eyes.

    "What mother would be cruel enough to name him such a thing?"

    "Helen of Troy."

    That was all that needed to be said and he nodded as of confirming something.

    "I shall take the child and will raise him as my own son. This I promise to the Gods."

    Helen of Troy, viciously taken by Deiphobus, brother of Paris, to be his wife, births a babe of the Trojan lineage and sends him away to be raised by another. Enraged by Paris's old betrayal, Hera plans to destroy the child before it can take it's throne as the last heir of Priam. Only Hades, God of the Underworld stands in her way, and finds himself getting closer to child than he had ever thought possible.

    Theodore Lowsely, a historian and archaeologist, discovers a scroll most mysterious that leads him into the foray of a battle between two gods while discovering a secret about himself along the way.

    Connected by time and pulled together by fate, these two stories will shake the very foundation of Olympus.

    Summary

    When the great hero Achilles died he expected to walk in the Elysium fields with the one he loved for all eternity. But the one he loved wasn't there. How could it be paradise without Patroclus? And so he went to bring him home. With Olympus itself divided over the Punishment of Patroclus and the Gods themselves choosing sides no one expected Achilles to succeed.
    But after all this time it seems the immortal Gods still haven't learnt the lessons of the past. Achilles would rip cities asunder, dry up the river Styx even climb mount Olympus and topple the Gods themselves, to see Patroclus in Elysium.
    And By the end, he will have done far worse.

    Loving a goddess is not like loving mortal flesh. There is ecstasy. There is communion. But there is no yielding, no safety, no forgiveness. There is only offering, and taking.

    Also known as "What happens when a Classics student has WAY too much fun with her degree!"

    Jack and Ianto find themselves in the middle of the Greek camp in the tenth year of the Trojan War. How will they react? Started as a funny story, but somehow got really intense on me!

    These men I brought back perforce to the ships, weeping, and dragged them beneath the benches and bound them fast in the hollow ships … lest perchance anyone should eat of the lotus and forget his homeward way.
