    Summary

    Do I know of any hero that was happy? He thinks.

    (And frowns, because he is certain he has heard similar words spoken somewhere. They seem important, so why is it that he could not remember where they came from?)

     

    will hopefully be updated weekly! (check back on fridays yo)

    Summary

    Patroclus stared at his drawing often, studying the lines, the details, finding faults immediately. Not in the man himself, but in the inadequate way Patroclus had captured him. Achilles was like a stream of sunlight through the clouds, there one moment and gone the next; impossible to capture. Pat found himself doodling fiery green eyes on the margins of his notebook during art history class, recalling his stare, the mix of emotions behind it. Each time Patroclus finished, he found they weren’t the same, his memory of Achilles fading and details being replaced with glowing fantasies.

    Having a crush on the subject of your Life Drawing class probably wasn’t very ethical, but Patroclus couldn’t tamp it down if he tried. Achilles was too stunning, too invasive; he demanded attention. Pat wondered what Achilles did outside of volunteering for art students, if he was an actual model who posed in front of cameras or strutted on cat walks. Patroclus had to know.

    Summary

    Patroclus bitterly yet efficiently serves as Crown Prince Achilles' retainer and future Royal Advisor, their friendship long disintegrated into the petty co-dependency it is today. Their lives come to a crashing halt when an engagement journey to Scyros results in a devastating shipwreck, leaving only the two stranded on an island.

    Forced together for the sake of survival, both Patroclus and Achilles will find long suppressed emotions rising to the surface- and it turns out, they're stronger than they'd ever thought.

    Summary

    A plethora of mini patrochilles one-shot ideas that pop into my head, but aren't enough to constitute a full-length story.

    A lot of fluff, maybe some angst, but 99% cute moments for our precious bois.

    (PLEASE NOTE: the title of this work used to be called 'All At Once', from the John Green quote. I have changed it for two reasons. 1) I feel like the new title is much more relevant to the content of this story, and 2) I have other, better ideas for patrochilles fanfics that can go under the 'All At Once' title. Thank you!)

    Summary

    As a Prince, Achilles was privileged in ways most people could only dream about. But that's the catch with people who already have everything - they begin to want things even their money and status can't get them.

    And what did Achilles want most? The one thing he could never in a million years have.

    Prince Patroclus.

    The second half of my soul, missing. I have never felt more empty. All I could do was hold his body. Pretend he’s only sleeping, ready to wake up at any moment.

    Summary

    Achilles knows he is the greatest, Aristos Achaion, but does not linger on it. He knows things about himself and the world around him with a certainty as unshakeable as the foundations of the mountain that they sit upon. These things are many, and there is little that surprises him, but Patroclus has always surprised him. Patroclus, who would look at him not with admiration or covetous envy, but with a strange curiosity, and with a pain Achilles did not understand at first. Patroclus, who measures every word like it is precious. Patroclus, who looks at him now with warmth, but not with that blind adoration that Achilles is used to, but sees his faults and cares for him nonetheless.

    The first of a short series of character and relationship studies of Achilles and Patroclus, where Achilles admires Patroclus just as much as Patroclus admires him.

    Summary

    “The rosy gleam of his lip, the fevered gleam of his eyes. There was not a line anywhere on his face, nothing creased or graying; all crisp. He was spring, golden and bright. Envious death would drink his blood, and grow young again.” ---The song of achilles

    Summary

    Not everyone has a soulmate. That was a simple fact in life, but even so, having one was more common than the normal person would’ve thought.
    Babies would be born with a dark, inky spot on their skin, and when they touched their other half for the first time, the dark spot would change, gain color and form, becoming something beautiful.
    But, having a soulmate is really something good? Or is there something darker behind it?
    Achilles wishes to meet his soulmate more than anything in the world.
    Patroclus isn’t so sure about it.

    Summary

    "how does it feel?" i asked and he pondered for awhile.
    "not everything feels like something else," he says simply. it was an unsatisfying answer. i wanted more. i wanted him to wrap it up in pretty words and pages of pages of description. i wanted to devour whatever he was wiling in giving me.

    instead, he leaned over, mouth bare inches away from mine. i could already taste him. ambrosia and figs.

    i melted away underneath him, my body ached just from the way it wasn't touching his. i wanted to kiss him but he shies away. "got you", he teased with a grin as bright as a full moon.

    i eat it up as if he complimented me.

    when he finally laid a kiss upon my lips, i felt whole. he was half of my soul, after all.

    when i awoke, i was left with nothing more but the lingering taste of figs on my lips. heavy like honey it dripped down on my pillow.
    it smelled like him.
    i wish it would keep smelling like him.

    Summary

    Before the sun sets on his twentieth birthday, the prince will prick his finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into a sleep like death...

    This curse looms over Patroclus' head, and Achilles is the one who put it there. They can't run from Fate and they cannot escape destiny for forever. Achilles is a villain, and Patroclus is a damsel, and true love is perhaps the most powerful and mysterious thing in the world.

    Summary

    Everyone expected me to be the confident leader; the one with all the answers. In reality, I was terrified of what was to come. I’m always thinking back to the prophecy that Thetis stated: “If you go to war, you will die”. An ominous statement that shook me to my core. I was going to die. I was always aware of it; I was mortal after all. It feels different this time.

    How could I be so cruel as to leave Patroclus behind?

    Summary

    Zagreus is lonely. This much is obvious. He tries to help anyone and everyone he comes across. His heart is given just as freely as his assistance, and this causes a problem when he tries to help Achilles one ambrosia filled night or day. When Achilles groans out Patroclus' name during sex, it sets into motion a chain of events that puts Zagreus into Patroclus' arms as well.

    Can Achilles fix his mistakes in time to keep from harming Zagreus any further? Can Patroclus heal the young prince's heart before it breaks beyond repair? Can they work everything out to become something newer and better?

    Summary

    Everyone in all of mighty Achaea knows of how protective and proud Menoetius is of his only son — so much so that it reflects in the boy's very name — Patroclus. Pride of the father. The boy has been a revered figure since the very day of his birth, given he is an omega in a land where his kind are not only worshipped but are also rarely descended from royal families because of their very strong alpha lineage.

    Now eighteen, and eligible for marriage, suitors begin visiting the grand walls of Opus to have a chance to catch a look at the prince, and possibly gain his hand. Menoetius gives his son the leave to choose his husband, but it does not mean he will make it easy for anyone to just whisk him away. So he plucks a few pages out of books of older traditions and revives "Athlos" — a series of games that had once been held in the honour of omegas, to allow them to see and select the best of the alphas for themselves. To separate the wheat from the chaff.

    Menoetius watches mighty princes trip over each other for his Patroclus. For him, it is a challenge — a dare to see who could take away his precious son from him. He already sees himself as the victor.

    What he does not expect is the Prince of Phthia.
