    Title (of series) taken from a paper about Menelaus and Helen in Attic Vase Painting. Presented in no chronological order, written as the ideas come unbidden into my mind. Love might be real.

    Summary

    "You are Helen, are you not?" She wonders later why she asks, instead of stating, but it might be why she does not take without asking.

    (It's just less fun.)

    Summary

    Helen met the girl with the lace of freckles on her first day at Troy.  She walked into Reading Consent in the Iliad with upswept silver hair, a leopard tattoo running on her neck, and breasts swaying as she moved.  She knew they would be friends instantly. The same way she knew she was going to move through Theseus in a few months.

    Summary

    (Fem!Percy)
    After finally defeating Kronos, Percy had expected peace, not a flash of molten gold after which she found herself as a twelve year old girl in a village recently reduced to rubble, surrounded by a forest and Ancient Greek.

    A little too much Ancient Greek.

     

    (Or, Percy is flung back into the past and gets a hands-on history lesson when it comes to living during the Greek classism.)

    Summary

    War chuckles low in her throat. “I saw you with Odysseus. What’re you up to, Demon?”

    Crawly grins against the wood, mouth pulling wide. “It’s been more than a decade for me,” she says. “Tending the queen. Tending the fires. Twirling my little spindle in the women’s quarters all locked up like gold or spice. Birthing babies.” She rolls her eyes, expressively, and shrugs so her captor can feel her body move. “Who wouldn’t sstep outside for a little fun?” The gripping hand loosens just a touch and Crawly slithers, turning slowly so that her back is to the ship and War’s lean fingers fan across her collar bone. Crawly drapes her limbs elegantly, insouciantly, and lifts her chin. “As to the other, I’m only following my nature. Tempting is what I do…”

    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.
