    Summary

    Achilles turned to me, his long locks of blonde hair sat on his shoulders. "Is this what you want? If not we can go back. But I think...I think I prefer it here with you." His vibrant green eyes held so much sincerity it made me want to cry, he held my hands in his, calloused fingers running over my knuckles. I gave it thought. I wanted to be with Achilles, wherever he may be, I wanted Achilles happy and healthy. That's all I wanted. Phthia wasn't home, neither was the kingdom I was banished from. I was an exile but with Achilles, I felt at home. Wherever Achilles wishes to be I will follow.

    "Yes. I wish to be here as well." His smile was dazzling, joyful as he pulled me into a hug. His cheek rested against my own, his lips hovering close to my ear. He was warm and smelled of the oils he used for his feet and it made my insides buzz. My hands fisted into his tunic, wrinkling the fabric but Achilles would not care. My nose brushed his collar bone, muscles tensing beneath me as he crushed me into a hug.

    "Thank you," He whispered, but he'd never sounded louder to me.

    "There is no need to thank me," I replied, I was honest.

    Summary

    As the last living kin of your great ancestor, you are asked to deliver a tribute that honors his in front of 1,500 aspiring warriors.... But what is honor if not a tool to put our heroes on a pedestal? You want to change that, show everyone that Achilles was not the perfect cookie cutter of hero. That he was not just his battles.

     

    You wanted to show everyone that Achilles was human.

    Summary

    In the Iliad: Achilles' immortal horses, Xanthus and Balius, weep and refuse to be budged after their charioteer and friend Patroclus is killed. And I am trash for immortal beings getting attached to fragile mortals, so I thought I'd try to add them in a TSOA canon div.

    Plus, I think Patroclus would be a badass charioteer.

    Summary

    My take on the death of Patroclus.

    It could be described as a vent or an emotional dump.

    I have so much emotional baggage from the song of Achilles book. So much sadness.

    Please, do read the endnotes. Some important things are said. And an explanation. - 🖤 author

    Summary

    He stays like this, with the flashlight on, making eye contact with the sculpture, for a long time. It looks almost tired. Good, he thinks to himself.
    “This is pointless,” he mutters to himself and turns around to leave.
    “Oh,” says a voice behind him, calmly. “Hello.”
    Nick turns around swiftly, holding the flashlight like it’s a gun, and is met with green eyes and gold hair. He manages to scream two whole words, which to him is a huge success.
    “JESUS FUCK!”

    Really, he shouldn't have taken the job.

    Summary

    On your first day of kindergarten, when your teacher reads your name out loud during roll call, you scream at the top of your lungs. You don’t understand, then, what about it makes you so upset.

    It is not your name.

    And you have memories that aren't your own, and none of them make sense, and you barely know who you are.

    Summary

    A story about love, loss, and life's parallels. Patroclus makes his way in the world and carves a place for himself. Non-canon (in a big way) after Scyros as we explore the heart and choices of Patroclus and the humanity of a demigod.

    Summary

    Song of Achilles from Achilles perspective.

    “He was a quiet boy, yet he flared with defiance. Pa-tro-clus. He was not so readily clay in my hands like all others, man or boy. When at last he said his name it hung in the air hollow like an echo, empty of the role he was once to fulfil, now in exile…

    For a moment I imagine him, skin nut brown against the marble. I find him oddly familiar, as I pluck listlessly at the lyre strings, giving easily under my fingertips. Had I seen him before? I wade through my memories like a river thick and churning, memories rising from the river bed in murky swirling images...

    Yet there was one who never joined us, who sat far away shrouded, eyes heavy, closed to me. Pa-tro-clus...

    Afterward some small corner of me sought that gaze that would not come…”

    Summary

    Achilles' standards were impossibly high, yet he saw one single man in the forest, wearing simple garb and not even noticing Achilles, on his knees in the blackberry bushes, his pants stained with dirt and grass, and began bargaining for the entire kingdom to be invited to the royal ball, just for a chance to meet him.

     

    Just one glance, and he's hopelessly infatuated. The Fates test him daily.

    Summary

    Stream of consciousness from Patroclus' POV, in the infinitesimal flicker of time between death and his life.

    -'Somehow, someday, we will be us again. Not the army’s, not the Gods’ plaything and not some puppet of the fates. We will be Patroclus and Achilles. Silver and gold. Dark and light. Sun and shadows. The best of the Greeks.

    My last thought before I lose my footing is:

    Achilles.'-

    Summary

    Nyx gets word from the Fates that Patroclus’s time in Elysium is up and should return to Tartarus, while Achilles goes to Elysium as planned. As Achilles accepts his fate in potentially never seeing Patroclus again, Hades strikes a deal with him.

    “You will journey to Elysium and find Patroclus. There’s a rumor of Hector, the Trojan Prince that ended your lover’s life, has taken interest in him. Be warned that the rules of paradise are not the same within these walls, the dead don’t need honor...Elysium is massive and souls might be territorial. Watch your back and...don’t keep me waiting Pelides”

    Achilles must travel into the depths of Elysium, encountering familiar and unfamiliar characters from his mortal days, to find Patroclus and change fate once again.

    Summary

    He told us too of Heracles, his labors, and the madness that took him. In its grip he had not recognized his wife and children, and had killed them for enemies.
    Achilles asked, "How could he not recognize his wife?"
    "That is the nature of madness," Chiron said.
    [...]
    Achilles' eyes were bright in the firelight, his face drawn sharply by the flickering shadows. I would know it in the dark or disguise, I told myself. I would know it even in madness.
    __
    “She took him, Achilles.”
    Peleus saw him freeze, could feel how his blood ran cold.
    “In the dead of the night, shrouded by Mother Nyx, she took him.”
    Peleus’ heart ached for his boy, but he knew, even as he wrapped his son in an embrace, there was nothing he could do to soften the blow of his next words.
    “As you slept, Thetis, your mother, took him to the caves under the sea.”

    Summary

    I think about the feeling of her next to me, and I think, selfishly, I will follow her, and this, I will have this always, for as long as she allows.

    I wish I had been a better princess, because maybe then I would be able to say these things to her. But I could not. The words die in my throat, wilting like a forgotten song.

    As if she had heard me, Yena reaches out, hands encircling my own. I did not need to look; I knew her skilled, calloused hands, slender and fluttering with warmth. I would know her by presence alone, I would know her even in death.

    "Chaewon," She says. Chae-won. My name glides across her tongue, smooth and sharp and I almost wish my name were longer if only to hear her voice say it again.

    Chae-won, it echoes. She has always been better with words than I.

    (Chaewon has many regrets and flaws. Yena does not. Perhaps it is because she is shrouded in her godliness that she is as perfect as she is. It doesn't matter; she loves Chaewon all the same, and Chaewon lays down everything she has for it.)
