    Summary

    There was stars on the alcohol in the same way they were in Briseis' eyes, in Odysseus' hair, in Menelaus' laugh, in Hector's skin, in Penelope's mouth, in his friends' hands, in his parents' words, in his own body and in Achilles' personality.

    Patroclus saw constelations in Hyacinth's freckles, in Apollo's gaze, in Theseus' height, in Persephone's walk, in the books and at his feet.

    There were stories and beauty everywhere he looked and, by the third glass, he started to look inside himself.

    Summary

    Pyrrhus may have ground his father’s last wishes under his heel, but it does not mean others do not remember.

    The Fates are cruel, but Mankind has more in them than pettiness and rage; bit by bit, through kindness and believing in the little lies, a wandering soul is brought home— not by the capricious mercy of a goddess, but by humanity’s capacity for compassion.

    (It is not only by Thetis's hand that Patroclus's name is carved.)

    Summary

    Every summer, Patroclus flies to Texas to work at a summer camp for troubled boys, boys who would end up in jail--or worse--without constructive intervention. Every summer, Patroclus says goodbye to Achilles in the airport and starts counting the days until they'll see each other again. Every summer, Achilles waits 92 days to see his lover again. It's definitely worth the wait.

    Summary

    The sun begun to rise as the water shone bright. The waves broke calmly against the pier and Achilles closed his eyes, smelling the salt on the wind. He remebered playing with frogs on a pond when he was a child and the times his mother's took him to swim. She would hold him close to her chest, in the middle of the ocean, and whisper.

    "Achilles, you are clearly meant for so much more."

    Then, she would submerge both of them to be embraced by the cold waters.

    Summary

    “Wait,” Achilles says. “Is she the one dating Menelaus?”
    Patroclus screws up his face. “I think so? Penelope said they were on and off, or something.”
    “Hey, there’s a reason she might have just run away,” Achilles says. “That guy is an asshole.”

    Summary

    "...like that star of the waning summer who beyond all stars rises bathed in the ocean stream to glitter in brilliance.” -The Iliad.
    -
    “Twice now you have ventured forth above Hades’ halls, and twice now you have returned to Elysium. Heroes, glory has been yours. Dare you try once more?” The three women intone together, aged faces hidden beneath hoods of black. One eye stares, pale as a corpse and unblinking as they speak. Six hands gnarled with age gesture commandingly; thirty fingers calloused, slim and their blackened tips no longer able to bleed, the consequence of weaving the cloth of fate itself.
