    Summary

    A short piece I wrote as an assignment for English class based on the song "Achilles Come Down" by Gang of Youths! I would highly recommend listening to the song immediately before reading this for maximum effect.

     

    “Babe - “I start, trying to keep the anxiety out of my voice. He cuts me off before I can say anything else.

    “I just called to say I love you,” he says through his sobbing.

    “And I love you too,” I reply, attempting to keep my voice steady. But my voice wavers a bit. Something is really wrong.

    Achilles rushes on, “And… well … you’ve been such an amazing boyfriend and everything and I’m so so sorry, but it’s better this way,” he stammers, and my heart jumps… is he breaking up with me?

    “Are you -” I start, pausing to take a breath and hold my tears in. “Are you breaking up with me?” I whisper.

    “No, not really. You know I love you, but I just can’t deal with this… my life … anymore. I’m calling to say goodbye,” my heart shatters at the way his voice breaks. Then I’m filled with a flood of panic as his words really hit me. Goodbye. Is he? No, he can’t be.

    Summary

    Patroclus loved Achilles. This wasn't a secret to anyone. Not to Achilles, not even to himself, who tried to hide the feelings inside his chest, and after doing it for what seemed like a long time, Patroclus simply learned how to see his feelings more like a virtue, instead of a selfish will which would make him lose his best friend, and now he just displayed these beautiful, shining and pure feelings to whoever wanted to see. Especially to Achilles.

    Summary

    Achilles is the bastard son of a wealthy landowning farming family in rural Australia. Quick witted, savage and charming, Achilles has the world at his feet and half a mind to burn it down.

    At twelve, a distant country cousin comes to stay with him - kind, patient Patroclus. Privately tutored together for years, an attraction sparks, but the more Achilles presses Patroclus to admit his feelings, the more he wriggles out of it. Achilles tells himself it's fine; he doesn't mind watching Patroclus squirm.

    Summary

    Achilles has been playing rugby since he was a child. He loves playing so much he went professional, but now he’s gone back to school at his mother’s behest and is captain of their rugby team there. It’s the first day of his junior year and at his 8AM weights class when he sees Patroclus, a close childhood friend who he’d lost touch with after circumstances not under his control. But as Achilles seems to recognize him at first glance, there’s not recognition in Pat’s eyes as Achilles holds out a flier asking him to join the rugby team.

    Summary

    In all the years Patroclus and Achilles have known each other, Achilles has gone through all the possible scenarios of how they might get together in his head: the dreamy ones, where he takes him to the beach they used to go to as kids, and kisses him gently, bathed in the sunset’s amber glow. The more emotional ones, where Achilles is there to comfort Patroclus after one of his nightmares, as always, and their innocent, friendly hug turns into something more. And there are the darker, more feral ones, where Achilles grabs him and pulls him close, and they kiss with abandon before falling on the nearest flat surface. 

    The reality is somewhere in between all of those daydreams, and none of them at all. 

    During the ten-year long Trojan War, Achilles was a fighter pilot, and Patroclus his combat systems operator and best friend. Now that the war is over, the two try to figure things out as they get adjusted to life out of combat, and their lifelong friendship and comradeship grows into something... more.

    Summary

    Zagreus had reunited Patroclus with Achilles, and everything was going well between the two of them.

    That is, until one day, Patroclus wakes with no memory of himself or who he once was.

    Patroclus may not know who the golden haired man was that came to visit him, but there is something about him that draws him in—And he wants to know more.

    His memories are not the only mystery to be solved, as Achilles, Zagreus, and Thanatos set out to find what made the fallen myrmidon drink.

    Summary

    In the darkness, two shadows, reaching through the hopeless, heavy dusk. Their hands meet, and light spills in a flood like a hundred golden urns pouring out of the sun.

    I gripped closer to the figure in the dawning light. I could only see shapes and colors but I still felt him there. In that moment I felt it all rushing back to me, a warmth, a chill, an ache, an elation. I felt as if I were tumbling, helplessly under an ocean wave. I was no longer alone to watch the earth, I had someone grasping me.
