    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

    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

    '“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

    Ajax, son of Telamon, held both thumbs down and said that in his opinion, Odysseus was not nearly so clever as he thought he was, and his own herald exited the pavilion, running after Odysseus's with both thumbs down, that men might know of Ajax's disapproval. (Or, the Iliad if they had social media.)

    Summary

    What do you do when your honorary brother in arms is doomed to suffer another year stuck in skirts?
    Well, if you're Achilles, you take the bullet for him.
    What do you do when you find yourself falling in love with the cute (most likely straight) new guy?
    Well, if you're Achilles, you find yourself utterly compromised (in the most agreeable way).
    Now: What do you do when your archnemesis- and, no, just because you're in high school that doesn't mean that you're too young to have one thank you very much- finds out the truth about you?
    Well, if you're Achilles, you break his nose (in the least agreeable way possible).

    Summary

    I am a boy that should have grown up in Phthia, among the olive groves, beside the cliffs, and on the beaches. I should have grown up with my father, and even with Patroclus. That is a different life. Maybe a happier one, I’m not sure because I have never known it.
