    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

    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

    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

    The first time Patroclus sees him, it's on the football field. He's slimmer than all the rest, leaner. He pulls off his helmet to reveal a crop of blonde curls, falling into his eyes as he grins at his team mates. The shoulder padding bulks him out, but once he's shucked all of that, including his shirt, Patroclus can see the line of his abs and his biceps, skin golden in the sun. He's gorgeous.

    Summary

    He shines a light at the back of Achilles’ eyes, and listens to him grunt. He checks the top of his head for any head wounds, trawling through blond curls with his fingertips, but he finds none. That’s good. He takes his face carefully between his hands, checking for anything wrong there (read: using it as an excuse to look at him).

    “Agamemnon called me a whore,” Briseis explains from a few feet away.
