    Summary

    Patroclus has no interest in the arena, though he's been challenged many times. His fighting days are over and that is fine with him. The other occupants of Elysium are intent on changing that.

    Summary

    Achilles, the sun casting its last rays around his head like a halo, resplendent and aureate.

    Achilles, the soles of his feet flashing pink as he sprints across the beach.

    Achilles, slender fingers plucking the strings of his lyre, eyes green like fresh pressed olives. His cat's smile.

    "Guess what I'm thinking about," he says.

    The robin that flew over our heads but a minute past. The dream he had last night of a ship with purple sails, its prow slicing the waves of the Aegean sea. The wooden amulet that hangs about the augur's neck. This and this and this.

    "I'll be the first hero to be happy," he would tell me years later. "You're the reason."

     

    A collection of all the scenes we didn't get to see in The Song Of Achilles. Follows the timeline of the book.

    Summary

    When Nicky was twenty-two, he was in love. With the world, yes, and with his own life, with the way having an Interrail Pass and some money in his pocket made him feel that anything was possible. But most of all, with Joe. With him, love was effortless. They laughed easily, they traveled together well, and they fucked like gods. 

    Nile never knew that version of him, the Nicky so in love that he stole Joe's t-shirt and stuffed it in his backpack, thinking he could wear it to bed and imagine Joe was still holding him. By the time he met her, Nicky had not only stopped sleeping in that shirt, he'd long-since shoved it in the back of his bottom drawer behind a spare blanket. After that, he could almost pretend it never existed.
