    Summary

    They have been lovers for a good while, so Alexias cannot understand why Lysis has not asked of him anything more than a kiss. Phaedo gives Alexias some advice in the art of love.

    This takes place rather early on in the story. Phaedo's still a slave and Alexias has yet to join Lysis' troupe, so I place Alexias at about 16 years old, hence the underage tag, although it was considered acceptable at the time.

    Summary

    "I knew not whether to thank Eros for giving man love or Prometheus for giving man fire for, at that moment, I could not distinguish between the two."

    Takes place on the day when Alexias reaches manhood, directly after the scene with his mother at the end of Chapter 16. Alexias seeks out Lysis to share his special night - his first night as a man, and doubts Lysis' love when his proposal to share their bodies is rejected.

    Summary

    The scene where I have always presumed Alexias and Lysis consummated their love. It was only ever implied in the book, but I took the liberty of making it clear.

    I wrote this work several years ago but now it is NEW AND IMPROVED. Yeah, it sucked before. It was one of my first fics.
