    Summary

    Achilles and Patroclus had been perfectly happy laying in bed together that afternoon. But they had gone to Menelaus' house, just like all their other friends, when called. Then suddenly doors were glowing blue and opening into worlds that they couldn't even imagine.

    In a world in which magic isn't real, no one could be prepared for Menelaus asking them to help find his brother. Who had disappeared into a new, and somewhat terrifying, world.

    Achilles knew he should have stayed in bed.

    ~~~

    “He’s there,” Menelaus pointed to an ‘X’ on the map.

    “X marks the spot? Really?” Odysseus muttered. “At least be original.”
    Menelaus shouldered the bag and grabbed Helen’s hand. “Thank you guys for coming with me.”

    “You didn’t give us a choice,” Achilles replied.

    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

    Crowley has nothing to do with the apple at all this time, and in fact only learns that apples were involved at all about five thousand years later while watching an episode of Horrible Histories whilst waiting for Aziraphale to "finish just this one last chapter, my dear, then we'll go off lickety split!" for the second book in a row.

    Or: wherein Crowley starts the Trojan War, sort of, and Aziraphale ends it, sort of.

    Demons and angels who've been playing celestial 'will they / won't they' for the past thousand years oughtn't hand out romantic advice like candy.

    Summary

    This is an original work and not a fanfic but I want people to read it and thus have decided to publish here.
    The story is set around 50 years in the future, in Hongshan, a city built near the ancient site of the Hongshan Civilization (located in the northern part of China). The characters and plot are inspired by the Trojan War and a dream I had involving zombies that were fought with cats, and the world is inspired by Daoist lore and archeological interpretations of the Hongshan civilization. The city specializes in medicine and was founded with an all female government in order to encourage women to participate in politics.
    The story follows 3 siblings: Kassia, Paris, and Helena. Paris becomes jealous of Kassia, his twin sister and heir apparent of the Apothecary; he desires political power for himself. He meets Alabaster, who is obsessed with Kassia, but cannot pursue her because Kassia is a priestess that keeps an oath of celibacy. The two end up dabbling in the dark arts and create a zombie army, and also kidnap Helena, Kassia and Paris's younger sister, in order to bait Kassia (because they think this will totally achieve both of their goals). Kassia did not ask for any of this.

    Summary

    Sing Goddess of the forgotten women, whose silence speaks a thousand words to us today, whose stories must be crafted from air and rumour for how they were overlooked, those wretched forgotten women who raged and lived.

    Briseis the Once-Queen is a figure most well known as being blamed for the quarrel between Achilles and Agamemnon. It is lost to the world as to what happened to her after the events of the Iliad. As one of the few prominent women of the epic, I think it is time to give her a voice that does more the weep, but shouts, scorns and spits blood.

    Summary

    "Achilles there’s a new kid at school that (I think) is your type and has the locker next to you."

    ~~

    Patroclus hadn't wanted to move but then who did? He hadn't wanted to start a new school in the middle of the year. Until Achilles had walked into his English class and smiled.

    Cue friends, drama, way too much handholding and love.

    ~~

    Or the Modern High School Illiad that's been in my head since I was a first-year senior in school.

    Summary

    Yet another retelling of the Trojan War cycle.
    Tired of those yet? But we all know there can never be too many.
    Let's try to approach it from the beginning.
    And... not disrespect the source material too much, if possible.

    Trolling Paris? Always a delight.

    Summary

    Mysterious are the ways of fate, unlikely soulmates brought together by the gods to stop a war meant to last decades.

    UPDATE: I decided to put the story on HIATUS due to lack of inspiration. I will focus instead on another fic that I hope to finish, and I will try to get back to this one as soon as possible because there are definitely enough ideas to continue, but not enough inspiration to write. Thank you for your understanding!
