    Summary

    'The crops will drown, was my first thought, then, I’ve never seen Achilles so euphoric before, my last.

    “Dance with me Patroclus!” He had all but screamed into the thick barrier the rain created between the two of us. I tried to tell him I had two left feet so didn’t know how to dance and couldn’t even if I tried but he shook his head and threw it back with laughter which was drowned by the too loud precipitation, declaring that everyone knew how to dance even if it was just jumping about like lunatics.

    Now, the air is mellow with the sweet, dewy petrichor lingering on the earth. Both Achilles and I’s tunics are soaked through and our bodies are slick with the soft film from the salty rain, as a reminder almost of the happiness that clung to our skin as we danced, weaving eagerly through the parting rains and intertwining our limbs together.'

    They can not have him. The gods and the kings and everyone in between. Achilles is not theirs to take.

    Summary

    Achilles did not know how long he dozed, his arms circled protectively around the one thing in the world he had left to care for. He only knew that at some point, the soft flesh beneath his cheek began to warm. He thought nothing of it at first, thinking it was only the heat from his own body reflecting back at him, but he froze when, out of nowhere, the chest he lay against rose beneath him before falling, then rising again.

    Summary

    "Do you want me to open the blinds?”

    “Heaven, no. People might think it an invitation to enter. Let me just-“

    With a moment’s careful focus a soft light forms in the air and begins slowly to strengthen. Crowley’s jaw drops.

    “Angel, are- are you-?”

    The silver light is soft and warm, reminiscent of moonlight on a summer’s night. It has no physical source; it simply exists, loosely ringing Aziraphale’s head and fluctuating in intensity whenever he needs it to. Crowley swallows hard.

    “I’m- I just- Th- I’ve never seen it. Your, uh. Yeah. Before.”

    He gestures, a little futilely, to Aziraphale’s newly visible halo. Aziraphale flushes gently.

    “I don’t exactly go around showing it off."
