    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

    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

    Patroclus and Achilles have been side by side ever since they were left to fend for themselves, and although some bonds can be as devote as theirs, there isn't a more passionate romance in all the world. But, all true romance faces hurdles, theirs being Patroclus' sudden and painful death. When Achilles is forced to marry after swearing off love in grief, will he break under the falsity of his arranged marriage or escape with what he once dreaded the most.

    Summary

    All he’d said was that he was destined for greatness, and needed a little help getting there. He introduced himself as Achilles. Then he smiled, the kind of look that showed he was used to getting what he wanted, and this time would be no different. Patroclus hated himself for falling for that, but seventy miles later, it was too late.

    Summary

    Patroclus is a disappointment of a magic user. His magic's weak. His Latin's just alright. But most importantly, his familiar, Achilles, hates him.

    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

    For a moment, there was only darkness, and fear practically filled whatever was left of Patroclus. Was this it? Would he have to live here, in nothingness without any by his side- without Achilles? After years of being alone, was this the afterlife the gods had in store for him? If he could cry, he would drown in his tears.Yet, something was holding on to him. Something he felt like he knew from anywhere, even in madness. He heard a familiar voice, and so he followed it.

     

    Basically a nice afterlife fic, in which Patroclus and Achilles find each other in a familiar place.

    Summary

    Kiss me, it doesn’t matter if it hurts, make it tighter,
    so that it can’t even hurt anymore.

    deep into my throat, the whisky that is you.

    Summary

    Prometheus came to both Zeus and Poseidon and warned them that the child Thetis would bear would be greater than the father, though he did not explain just how much greater this child would be. Zeus decided to be as cautious as possible and not wed Thetis to any god for this was not a chance he would take. He married her off to a mortal, Peleus and together conceived Achilles whom was promised immortality and godhood but that was not enough for Achilles, he had to have Patroclus as well and he'd challenge the gods to get what he desired.

    Summary

    The arrow rips through his back like fire, sliding through muscle like butter, his bones fragmenting and yielding- yielding so that the arrow might rip through vulnerable organs and soft lung.

    Achilles does not curse his bones, nor his limbs for failing to deliver him from danger; he merely turns his head to the side so that he might gaze up at the sky, calmly blue above a world of red. He doesn’t want his last sight to be one of death and destruction.

    All is well in the afterlife. (It's a feel good, well overdue afterlife reunion)
