    Summary

    He was 5 years old the first time it happened... When the Fates showed their face on the back of a coin, Patroclus found himself ripped from modern comfort, and thrown into a world he'd only played at.

    He was 10 when it happened again...

    And again....

    And again.....

     

    When time was a line, a circle, a fragment; two boys met. Their story became legend, became a beginning, an end, a middle. While the Gods played their game of fate, the Fates played a game of gods. Theirs is a story of love, of loss, of sacrifice... Of inevitability.

    Title from song: There Will Be Time, by Mumford & Sons & Baaba Maal 🖤

    Inspired by a fic I read like two years ago in the TRC fandom "(The Time It Takes) To Believe In Fate" by LydiaStJames, a piece of work so incredible I've never forgotten it. While I can only hope to have a fragment of their talent, I found myself unable to avoid writing this piece. The idea of circular time, of love, of history.... It felt a fitting way to grieve in the face of finishing Song of Achilles. So I do hope you enjoy my spin on a world such as that, for a set of characters such as these.

    Summary

    »Pa-tro-clus.
    He clings to the sound as the darkness threatens to swallow him whole. Where the moon and stars are failing him, it is a ray of light for him to hold on to.
    Something is pulling at him, like an eager child tugging at his sleeve, telling him it is time to go. Go where? he wonders but then his attention drifts yet again, back to the steady chant of his name.
    Maybe, he thinks, the darkness is not all that scary with Achilles there to guide him through it.«

    Stuck in the middle of a war that he cannot understand, the last thing Patroclus expects to find is a love even stronger than the one that started it.

    Summary

    “Maybe he’s a pyromaniac.”
    “Shut up, Odysseus. I heard his dad’s punishing him. He’s probably a drug addict.”
    “Doesn’t strike me as the type.”
    “I don’t know Helen, he seems pretty broody to me.”
    “Hot, broody and new. He’s probably a vampire.”
    “We don’t even know his name.”
    “Patroclus.” I chimed in. “It’s Patroclus.”

    Summary

    In a different time and in a different place, two boys find that they inexplicably gravitate towards each other, their mannerisms as familiar to each other as something from a half-remembered dream ...

    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

    “Αχιλλέας,” he says. Achilles.

    I can’t help but let out a small laugh, making Achilles raise his eyebrows in question- it’s not that the name he has given me is weird, we live in Greece, I have heard way worse. “It’s just-,” I start to explain, unable to hide my smile, “με λένε Πάτροκλο.” My name is Patroclus.

    It takes him a second and then he laughs as well. Neither of us probably remembers much of eighth grade Iliad, but that combination of names is not one you easily forget.

    Summary

    Patroclus is a new RA. Achilles is his resident. And they definitely, totally shouldn't date, despite Achilles' stupidly perfect face and Patroclus' utter gay panic.

    Summary

    When they’re born, every child is blessed, some even given a gift by the Venefica (witches).

    Patroclus was gifted the ability to hear others’ thoughts. Things quickly soured when his father stole the powers from a member of the venefica while she blessed him. This angered the venefica, who returned and cursed him. His ability would never cease. He would hear all of the thoughts of souls separate from his own constantly.

    Achilles’ gift is perfection. He is physically flawless. The strongest, the fastest, the most skilled. Always the most talented at everything he tried. He is charismatic, funny, and wicked smart. Achilles is everything a man could want in a son and more.

    Patroclus is sent away to live as a pupil of The Academy in Phthia. The other boys fear him. Everyone fears him. They all know he’s cursed. But, he supposes they have a right to fear him. Phthia and the Venefica have a very strained relationship with Opus, and though they don't know it, Patroclus is there as a spy

    Summary

    The visions started right after Matt lost his sight.

    warm sun on his skin, his carefree soul playing by the beach, the taste of figs that never really left his lips, the sound of laughter and the feel of hands on his shoulders, golden curls, and smiles that showed pearly white teeth.

    But then soon after that... comes the smell of grimes, sweats, and blood, the never ending flows of blood. Ear-splitting screams and then unbearable pain in his chest.

    Summary

    Patroclus arrives on the salt-stained coasts of Phthia covered with the blood of a child. Chained, broken and muzzled in the belly of the palace, trapped for his crimes, he should count himself lucky the gods have let him live this long.

    But when a boy enters his life with the sun woven through his hair and eyes that flicker with the green of spring leaves, he finds himself drawn, moth-like, towards the light.

    In a world where creatures like Patroclus are considered cursed, and princes like Achilles are slowly being marched towards glorious war, can they find a way to live together?

    ———————

    Or, Patroclus is cursed with the ability to turn into a wolf, yet despite all odds, ends up as Achilles’ closest companion. The plot loosely follows canon, but only in the broadest sense.

    Summary

    High School AU: Patroclus is an honours student with a hopeless crush on Achilles, the football star with a secret passion for music. Briseis is his best friend, who teases him mercilessly, but would do anything for him. Achilles and Hector have a friendly rivalry that escalates when Achilles starts hanging out with Patroclus when the football team gets divided by Helen, who leaves the team captain's brother, Melelaus, for Paris. Patroclus is hiding a secret, Briseis is trying to figure out what it is, and Achilles is living under the control of his mother, Thetis. It's not a happy story, because apparently I like writing sad things, but I love high school AU's and thought I'd try to write my own!

    Summary

    "I want more."

    Patroclus glanced at the still barely touched piece of pomegranate in Achilles’ hand. Without a word, he dug into his own share, ready to give him half of it, when Achilles stopped him. “Not this.”

    Patroclus' look was one of earnest curiosity. "What, then?"

    Achilles leaned closer, close enough to smell the rich tartness of the fruit. “This,” he whispered as he flicked his tongue over Patroclus’ lips, tasting the sweetness of the pomegranate that mingled with the natural, earthy saltiness of his skin. “This is what I want.”
