    Summary

    Achilles and Patroclus are finally reunited - two souls together, bound in deepest affection (and occasionally terrible household DIY projects). Both of them also share affection for Zagreus: prince of the underworld, god of Blood and Life, and their personal divine, blessed patron.

    Zagreus has something awkward to ask.

    (Aka, a humble sequel to "Teach me how to kiss (like real mortals do)")

    Summary

    “I owe you an explanation of what I said before, about the heroes Achilles and Patroclus,” Asterius starts.

    “Nonsense, Asterius! You feel better now, do you not?”

    “No.” Theseus’s eyebrows lift, and Asterius snorts. “Yes, I feel better. No, it is not nonsense.”

    “Speak, then!”

    “I know little of friendship. If we are friends—”

    “We are! From the depths of my heart, we are!”

    Asterius casts his gaze away briefly, focusing on the axe under his hands instead. Theseus is sincere as the sun, and can be equally difficult to look at.

    “If we are friends, they do things we do not.”
     

    After a chance encounter reveals what their bond could be, Asterius tries to navigate his feelings for Theseus, and seeks some advice.

    Summary

    “I hear you killed a child.”

    Patroclus looked up, wary. The boy crossing the garden to the olive tree Patroclus sat beneath had hair the colour of ripened wheat and skin like pale, fine sand. Younger than Patroclus but already just as tall, Achilles was rumoured to be half Nereid, half human. He looked altogether human, though, which had been a bit of a disappointment. Patroclus had been expecting at least scales or blue hair. Something.

    “I did,” Patroclus said, keeping his tone even. It wouldn’t do to break down before a stranger. Myrmidons weren’t meant to be ruled intensely by emotions like regret. “Lyseon was a childhood friend, the son of a retainer.”

    Summary

    Truth be told, Zagreus hadn’t spared Thanatos a thought when he left, that first time. The idea of never seeing him again simply hadn’t crossed his mind. It was too big, too absolute: impossible. Of course they’d see each other again. They’d grown up together, shared secrets and embarrassments and struggles. Even Hypnos – Than’s own twin! – had laughingly called them two sides of the same obol.

    Or, Zagreus' friends wish him well, but really, how can one god be so oblivious?
    Must be his mortal blood.

    Summary

    “Hypnos, that is a rat.”

    “This—” Hypnos walks over to the cage, opening it and taking the rat into his hands. He brandishes it toward Thanatos proudly. “—Is our new roommate! And I love him to bits already so if you say no, I will cry on you for a month.”

    “Charon,” Thanatos turns to Charon, who has been sitting on the couch this entire time drinking what seems to be wine in a mug, just watching this rat-centric spectacle. “You can’t possibly approve of this.”

    Charon sets his mug down on the coffee table and signs, “I like to watch the rat scurry.

    -

    Living in New York is hell normally, yes, but living in New York in an apartment with his brothers is a special kind of bespoke megahell tailor made just for Thanatos himself.
