    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.”

     

    When Helen goes missing one day, Achilles somehow gets roped in to setting off on a road trip to find her. It might have something to do with the fact that Patroclus has asked him to do it. And that they're about to finish high school. And that if Patroclus asked him to do anything, he'd do it.

    He's just waiting to be asked.

    (or: the high school graduation road trip modern AU of the iliad no one but me has been waiting for)

    Summary

    (((WILL BE SLOW TO UPDATE)))

    The gods are stirring again. After the war with the Titans and the war with Gaea, it seems that all is at peace-- but two descendants of Aphrodite are determined to destroy that peace. Fueled by their anger at the gods for their impoverished lives, Hector and Paris escape to the ends of the Earth with the most valuable items the gods have to offer: Poseidon's trident, Zeus' lightning bolt, and Apollo's bow. Without their sacred items, the gods are half of themselves. Hector and Paris have protection, however, from forces unknown.

    The gods need the only two people who can save them: Achilles, the plucky son of Ares, and Patroclus, the unclaimed boy who falls in love too easily. Their quest seems easy-- find Paris and Hector, kill them. But it won't be so simple. After all, they died last time.

    Summary

    Basically, Achilles gets another chance. Thetis calls in a favor, because she can't be a total a-hole, and Achilles gets the opportunity to be with his love, Patroclus, again. Sort of a crossover between the twelve labors of Hercules and The Song Of Achilles. But really, this story is what I think should have happened.

    Summary

    Achilles is Phthia College’s top rower. Paris is its top soccer player. Briseis is a film student, and Helen is an asexual dancer who Menelaus keeps bothering. Patroclus is a transfer student from East Locris University who’s sitting at a local Subway familiarizing himself with the city and being a good studious student and trying not to stare at the incredibly handsome golden-haired boy sitting nearby, when – was that a camera flash?

    And thus begins the adventures of Patroclus and Achilles, or, in other words, in which Achilles is completely smitten with Patroclus and Patroclus is trying his hardest to deny he has a crush on Phthia’s golden boy.

    Summary

    Oh! Goddess, sing of the stories yet untold
    Of wrathful Achilles from the tales of old,
    Of the secrets he long tried to hide
    That all have forgotten since he died.
    Except you, Goddess, who shares them now,
    Who has reappeared to show us how
    The Best of the Greeks, a true man at heart,
    Was not wholly one from the start;
    Raised a princess by Nature’s mistake,
    With more than Trojans to overtake.
    But Fate will not change by men or gods,
    So the son of Peleus defied the odds.

    Summary

    "And we realized we were in love—when exactly?"

    At this, Achilles looked up, and Patroclus was probably imagining it, but his face had turned pinker.

    "I don't know. You choose."

    -

    Patroclus and Achilles go to Greece under the guise of a couple to please Achilles' grandparents. You know the drill.

    Summary

    Fanfiction liberamente ispirata in seguito alla lettura del romanzo di Madeline Miller, "La canzone di Achille".
    La profezia è prossima ad avverarsi. La guerra non è ancora iniziata, ma reca già il nome di Achille e suo è il sangue che negli incubi più profondi di Patroclo, bagna la terra asciutta. Lì dove nemmeno le carezze del semidio possono arrivare, il giovane Meneziade si strugge di paura e solitudine, accarezzando l'oro morbido dei capelli del suo principe.

    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.
