    Summary

    Achilles looks at the moon longingly, with a sigh. "Sometimes I wish I was dead."

    Patroclus raises a brow, busily fumbling around his pockets until he finds his lighter and a cigarette stick. "You are dead- you're a vampire."

    Achilles looks at him with sadness and knowing in his eyes, as if he has had this conversation with all of Patroclus' incarnations. "It is not the same."

    Summary

    Mythos: Myths. Kleos: Renown, Fame and Glory.
    Greco-Roman world is a fascinating one, one whose worldviews and perspectives are shaped by countless numbers of tales, of heroes and kings, gods and goddesses, creatures and beings, that are parts of the cultural inheritances the Western world so proudly share. Myths are coded into our collective consciousness, and they frame our understandings of the world. Yet often these stories are narrated rather passively in the distant viewpoints of an omniscient teller, whose detachment sometimes does not allow us to truly and deeply connect with the characters. This series is my attempt to pry into the minds of these beloved characters, and recreate their stories.

    Summary

    Achilles and Patroclus had been perfectly happy laying in bed together that afternoon. But they had gone to Menelaus' house, just like all their other friends, when called. Then suddenly doors were glowing blue and opening into worlds that they couldn't even imagine.

    In a world in which magic isn't real, no one could be prepared for Menelaus explaining asking them to find his brother. Who had disappeared into a new, and somewhat scary, world.

    Achilles really should have stayed in bed.

    ~~~

    “He’s there,” Menelaus pointed to an ‘X’ on the map.

     

    “X marks the spot? Really?” Odysseus muttered. “At least be original.”
     

    Menelaus shouldered the bag and grabbed Helen’s hand. “Thank you guys for coming with me.”

     

    “You didn’t give us a choice,” Achilles replied.

    Summary

    Sing Goddess of the forgotten women, whose silence speaks a thousand words to us today, whose stories must be crafted from air and rumour for how they were overlooked, those wretched forgotten women who raged and lived.

    Briseis the Once-Queen is a figure most well known as being blamed for the quarrel between Achilles and Agamemnon. It is lost to the world as to what happened to her after the events of the Iliad. As one of the few prominent women of the epic, I think it is time to give her a voice that does more the weep, but shouts, scorns and spits blood.

    Summary

    Basically Hector, Achilles, and Aeneas are brought to the future. It's pretty much completely silly and I love it, I have contemplated doing some kind of sequel to it where the OCs are pulled into the past with them.

    Summary

    In this one we have Eirene who is the adoptive daughter of King Peleus and adoptive sister of Achilles. Peleus sends Achilles and Eirene to make friends with Troy and its most important ally, Dardania. Eirene meets Aeneas and more than one spark ensues. I honestly love the idea of witty, playboy Aeneas and I love this story. Btw, I have been trying to figure out where Aeneas is technically from if Dardania is incorrect please let me know!

    Summary

    "Achilles there’s a new kid at school that (I think) is your type and has the locker next to you."

    ~~

    Patroclus hadn't wanted to move but then who did? He hadn't wanted to start a new school in the middle of the year. Until Achilles had walked into his English class and smiled.

    Cue friends, drama, way too much handholding and love.

    ~~

    Or the Modern High School Illiad that's been in my head since I was a first-year senior in school.

    Summary

    “Don’t you see?!” Cassandra demands, grabbing Nestor by the shoulders and shaking him. Patroclus watches the show with mild interest. “There are cool kids and there are losers, there are jocks and rich kids and geeks and goths and stoners and everything in between, and what we’re about to enter is a swirling vortex of horror wherein they all intermix.”

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    Or, in which Patroclus pines after Achilles, Achilles pines after Patroclus, Briseis plays matchmaker, Odysseus has bad ideas, Diomedes has worse ones, Agamemnon sucks, Menelaus can't hold down a girlfriend, and the entire school goes to war.

    Summary

    Yet another retelling of the Trojan War cycle.
    Tired of those yet? But we all know there can never be too many.
    Let's try to approach it from the beginning.
    And... not disrespect the source material too much, if possible.

    Trolling Paris? Always a delight.

    Summary

    Mysterious are the ways of fate, unlikely soulmates brought together by the gods to stop a war meant to last decades.

    UPDATE: I decided to put the story on HIATUS due to lack of inspiration. I will focus instead on another fic that I hope to finish, and I will try to get back to this one as soon as possible because there are definitely enough ideas to continue, but not enough inspiration to write. Thank you for your understanding!

    Summary

    Achilles is running at the beach when she sees the girl for the first time.

    She’s sitting alone, legs pulled in to her chest, skirt pooled around her. She turns from the ocean and stares when Achilles comes closer. Her hair blows around her in the stormy wind; She is indifferent-looking, her eyes dark.

    Achilles’ running slows for a beat, tripping on nothing, before she looks away and runs faster.
