    Summary

    Patroclus met Achilles’ eyes. He was standing across the room, arms crossed over his chest, hair bound in a leather thong at the nap of his neck. A few strands fell in front of his eyes, though it did not look careless, like Patroclus’ hair did most days.
    Achilles’ eyes scoured over him and Patroclus sat perfectly still, awaiting his verdict, like he was judge and executioner at once.

    “What?” Achilles finally said, making another face. There was the disappointment, flashing sharply across his cherub features. Patroclus did not know Achilles’ expressions well, but he could pinpoint disappointment on anyone. He’d seen it on too many faces. “He doesn’t seem like anything special to me.” His tone was dismissive, a knife right to the gut...

    Summary

    In which Patroclus is a legal assistant in a family solicitors, completely unqualified to deal with the latest case: a troubled mother and her son; a juvenile delinquent with a fierce intelligence and a penchant for mischief.

    At first glance it's a simple matter: fight for the family's right to stay together. However, a strange chain of gruesome and seemingly unconnected murders suggest a threat darker than any Achilles or his mother have yet to contend with, particularly as it becomes increasingly apparent that there is something not quite normal about this particular brilliant boy.

    Summary

    Fic based on the song Forrest Gump by Frank Ocean because I cant listen to it without thinking of Patrochilles. Like ever. Its really good and I recommend you listen while you read. Idk guys I like this but tell me honestly if it sucks ass. There is no smut in here just kisses because I wanted this to be pure. There may be a little confusion but its simple the first paragraph is in Achilles pov and after the two lines its all Patroclus.

    Summary

    '“Diomedian compulsion”: a proverbial expression […] Others say that Diomedes and Odysseus were on their way back from Troy at night after stealing the Palladium, and Odysseus, who was behind Diomedes, intended to kill him; but in the moonlight Diomedes saw the shadow of his sword, turned round, overpowered Odysseus, tied him up, and forced him to go ahead by beating his back with his sword. The expression is applied to people who do something under compulsion.' (Pausanias)

    Or: that time Odysseus literally tried to stab his bff in the back

    Summary

    Translation of La Descente aux Enfers d'Ulysse. Needs some prof reading by someone who's a native english speaker.

    It is often said that Odysseus is one of the greek heroes that did a catabase, a descent into Hells. That is true, but not with regards to the part of the Odyssey that people think of. When Odysseus confers with Tiresias, he uses a nekuia, an convoxation of the deads upon Earth. He does not descend into Hell. However...

    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

    Near the end of Odysseus' long absence, his son Prince Telemachus finally started to gain power, respect, and authority as the man of the house. But now Odysseus is back, seizing his power without a second thought, and Telemachus feels hopelessly ignored and disrespected. To him, there's only one way to proceed. Patricide isn't unheard of in archaic Greece.

    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.
