    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

    Achilles is the bastard son of a wealthy landowning farming family in rural Australia. Quick witted, savage and charming, Achilles has the world at his feet and half a mind to burn it down.

    At twelve, a distant country cousin comes to stay with him - kind, patient Patroclus. Privately tutored together for years, an attraction sparks, but the more Achilles presses Patroclus to admit his feelings, the more he wriggles out of it. Achilles tells himself it's fine; he doesn't mind watching Patroclus squirm.

    Summary

    That had been years ago, when they were still kids. Now, they were nearing manhood. They’d moved from the beachside, up into the mountains. Both of them preferred it there where the weather varied from season to season. Where they got to live independently with only Chiron, their chaperon, to help when they needed him.

    It was perfect. They’d built their own world up here.

    Patroclus watched Achilles. “If you’ve been flirting with me for years, why haven’t you said anything?”

    “Said anything?”

    “Surely you knew I liked you back.”

    Summary

    Carriers are those chosen by the Gods to either carry or father a child. They were either worshipped or seen as abominations to most. For as long as Patroclus could remember his father had forced him to conceal his status because it would bring shame to their house. His father may have been right. Patroclus was carrying the child of Achilles, the foretold Aristo Acharion.
    Only he concealed this fact in fear of his lover and goddess mother's reactions. Achilles' one of shock and disgust or Thetis' one rage and retribution

    AN Notes:

    Summary

    “Well…” Achilles looked down. Patroclus could’ve sworn his face turned a bit pink. “I was wondering if you would pretend to be my boyfriend.”

    Patroclus’ eyes went wide.

    “Just until after prom,” he clarified quickly. “I mean, we were planning on going together anyway.”

    “I— I guess we could…” Patroclus couldn’t think of another alternative, though that wasn’t saying much. As soon as the words “pretend to be my boyfriend” came out of his mouth, Patroclus’ mind went blank. He’d had a crush on Achilles since they were in middle school. He never said anything because he knew Achilles didn’t feel the same way. They’d been friends since they were little kids. Patroclus didn’t want to mess that up.

    Summary

    and perhaps time stalled when his lips met mine;
    slow and tender, fleeting almost, just as this summer was,
    giving way to autumn in the coolness of his mouth.

    i was infatuated by his taste,
    the heady scent of honeyed peaches and
    the bliss and content that melted over my heart like
    a powdered sugar glaze.

    (or: me attempting to capture the essence of summer through sunshine boys, sunflowers, complicated metaphors, an abundant mentioning of fruit, happiness and love.)

    Summary

    “Name one hero who was happy,” A boy, who is both exactly like Peter and nothing at all like him murmurs.

     

    The boy across from him pauses. The not like but exactly like Peter boy chuckles, “You can’t. I will be the first. Swear to me.”

     

    “Why?” The other boy sounds as curious and inquisitive as Harley, even if his voice is all the wrong tones.

     

    “Because you will be the reason.”

    Summary

    As an infant, Achilles was cast out from the land of his birth, to a world with no magic, where no spirits walked the earth.

    As a man, he finally returns, to fulfill his destiny and find the place where he belongs.

    This is the classic tale of a quest to save the handsome prince, a search for true love, of triumph over evil, and the journey home.

    Except when it isn't.

    Summary

    She made a sound of displeasure when her eyes landed on the ugly bruise on his temple."Do you want me to beat him up?"

    "No Brie, please do not deck the Aristos Achaion." He muttered, they started walking towards the entrance of the school.

    "Patroclus Chironides." She stopped in her tracks, a hardened scowl etched into her normally soft features. "I don't care if he has pretty eyes and a big dick, he pushed you down the stairs and scared your beautiful face!" She cried.

    "I don't know if you caught up Brie, but I like his pretty eyes and questionable dick size." Patroclus sighed dramatically, draping himself on Brisies' small frame like a blanket. "The things I do for love."

    "Pat, you passed out in his arms after saying he was hot."

     

    Chaos, gays and a little bit of teen drama, Patroclus wonders if this is actually the gods messed up version of a Netflix Romcom.
