    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 asking them to help find his brother. Who had disappeared into a new, and somewhat terrifying, world.

    Achilles knew he 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

    The boy teaches him to fight and comes back again and again. Sometimes he’s the same boy, and sometimes she’s a lanky girl, and sometimes she’s woman in armor and a peplos. Always the same grey eyes and that same grin.

    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

    "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

    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

    in which Odysseus learns the war messed him up more than expected, Tydeides has too much patience and the phrase"Diomedean compulsion" is coined.
    Not a part of "Sing, Goddess", but hopefully still interesting.

    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

    Here is how it starts. Patroclus takes an opening shift one day in late September, because Briseis has gotten the stomach flu and swears that if she moves from her bed, she may vomit. So he ends up working with Odysseus and Iphigenia, who never does a damn thing but gets to keep her job because she's Fucking Agamemnon's kid, and can you spell nepotism? Patroclus can. That higher education isn't going to waste, oh no.
