    Summary

    He is eighteen, freshly home from his first and last Olympics, and he steps out of the taxi to find the front lawn of his house littered with black garbage bags, little cards affixed to them on which Patroclus’s name is neatly printed. They contain all of his belongings.

    He sits on the curb for he-doesn’t-know-how long. When his neighbor’s car pulls up, she lets Patroclus into her house to use her phone. He dials the number that is more muscle memory than anything else at this point. Peleus answers, and within an hour, Achilles has the family car in front of Patroclus’s house and is stuffing the trash bags in the trunk.

    “Fuck your old man,” he says, slamming it shut.

    They don’t speculate out loud why this happened. They don’t have to. They know. They can say it was the heat of the moment or the highs of winning or whatever other excuse will allow sponsors and coaches and teammates to look the other way and pretend it was less than it was, but the footage was played live: Achilles breaking a world record, Achilles jumping into Patroclus’s arms, Achilles kissing him stupid.

    Summary

    Starstruck.

    It was a new word, never before said as far as Antilochus knew, but that was the only way to describe this new feeling. He had heard the term “thunderstruck,” and he felt similarly shocked, felt burned into the ground like a tree met with lightning, at the sight of the Best of the Greeks and Best of the Myrmidons, surely stars descended down from the heavens for a short war to be thrown back to skies again after.

    But which was which?

    Antilochus is a late arrival to the Trojan War, and is deeply intrigued by Achilles and Patroclus, both of whom he had heard stories of at home. But could they ever be intrigued by him? Luckily for Antilochus, Achilles is called away and Patroclus is left lonely on the shores of Ilion. Maybe it is best to take certain challenges one step at a time...

    First chapter is the set up, second pwp Patroclus/Antilochus, the third Achilles/Patroclus/Antilochus.
